We charge by the visit and not by the month. Each yard is different and some require more attention at certain times of the year. Lawns and yards in Southern Utah need more water and attention during the summer months. We feel like it makes more sense to home owners to charge per visit. We are very confident that you will love our service and offer a month to month agreement rather than contracts.
In order to maintain a healthy Southern Utah lawn, certain steps should be taken to ensure proper nutrients, a strong root system and efficient and effective watering. It is very important that nutrients can reach the soil beneath your grass. Lawn aeration is a key element to a healthy lawn because it allows air and water to penetrate beneath built-up grass or thatch.
Aeration involves perforating the soil with small holes to allow air, water and nutrients to penetrate the grass roots. This helps the roots grow deeper and produce a stronger, more sustainable lawn.
The main reason for aerating is to alleviate soil compaction. Much of the soil in St George and Southernutah has a high clay content which is dense and doesn't allow water to seep. Compacted soils prevents proper air, water and nutrient circulation within the soil. Excess lawn thatch or debris buried under the grass surface can also prevent the roots from obtaining these vital elements.
The best time for aeration is during the growing season. It is ideal to aerate your lawn in the early spring or fall after the compaction of winter months or the summer growth period.
At DC Landscape and Maintenance, we recommend aerating your lawn with a plug aerator. Our aerating machines
removes plugs of soil which allows proper water, air and nutrients to your lawns root system. Simply poking holes with strap on shoe aerators is less effective and can actually cause additional compaction in the areas around the holes. Our lawn aerating machines remove soil plugs approximately 2-3 inches deep and 0.5-0.75 inches in diameter, and about 2-3 inches apart. Please give us a call with any questions in regards to lawn aeration in St George and Southern Utah.
