A lime treatment is a granular application that will help to “sweeten” the soil of your lawn. The treatment helps to balance out the pH level in the soil, helping your lawn to grow healthier.
Lime will also reduce soil acidity and improve the fertilizer uptake in your lawn.
The amount of lime that your lawn needs depends on the pH of your soil. Our soils here in the Northeast are commonly very acidic with a low pH.
White grubs feed during the late summer and early fall and often cause extensive damage. They feed on grass, grass roots and garden crops.
If your lawn indeed has grubs, other predators (such as skunks, moles, and blackbirds) can often cause further damage to your lawn.
The best time to receive a grub preventative treatment would be in the summer to make sure there is no damage later in the season.
If your lawn has brown spots that lift easily from the soil, this could be a result of grub worm damage.
Core Aeration and Over Seeding
Core aeration enables your lawn to increase root development as well as reduce thatch build up and soil compaction.
Core Aeration is the process of making thousands of small holes into a lawn. The holes allow fertilizer, water and air to reach the root zone quicker, which will help your lawn to breathe and grow.
Over seeding will give you a thicker, greener lawn and it also discourages weed growth.
