Most of the existing grass remains while we slit-seed the rest
of the lawn, filling in the dead spots.
For new homes or lawns that need the existing dead grass
removed entirely. The area is graded with new or existing topsoil,
seeded, raked in and top dressed with a variety of products
specific to your needs. But you are the most important key.
The seeds must be watered deeply and frequently.
Sod is two-year old grass grown at a farm, cut and shipped
to your property then installed by our technicians. As with
seeding, the lawn area is prepared by grading and fertilizing.
We then lay the sod. And like seeding, you must keep the lawn
watered. It's almost like an instant lawn!

coverings under trees and in place of shredded bark mulch. Other
uses could be embankments that are hard to mow or cut. whatever
you need, we'll get it and plant it for you.
We will prepare a plan for you and, upon approval, get to
preparing the soil and flowers.
