Renovating your lawn? At some point, every residential landscape can benefit from lawn renovation. Thick green grass can be a very important element in developing a beautiful landscape around your home.
Marshall’s Lawn Service uses premium grass seed (fine fescue, bluegrass blend, shade mix, etc.) that is known to grow well in the Kansas City area climate and soils. Our lawn-care specialist will work with you to identify and recommend the best seeds to use for your lawn.
Most grass types in our area don’t fill in on their own, and will require some seeding to repair those bare or thin spots in the turf. On a small area, your technician will manually rake the area to ensure ‘seed to soil’ contact, followed by a dose of starter fertilizer used to promote a successful growth.
When preparing to overseed, our lawn-care specialist uses a verticutting mower to remove build-up thatch that has accumulated on your lawn, which reduces the density of the grass, allowing the new seed to take root. Over seeding is a great way to add some life back into a stressed lawn and provides your home with a thick and healthy turf.
Over time, soil can become compacted, especially here in the Midwest, where most of the soil is comprised of heavy clay depleting enough room for the root growth. Verticutting with our professional verticutting mower allows for a deeper cut, removing build-up thatch, and promotes the seed to come in contact with the soil for better germination.
Marshall’s Lawn Service advises our customers to maintain a healthy root system, because it is a must for an attractive lawn. Regular aeration helps compacted soil loosen, allowing the root system to grow.
During the aeration process, small plugs of soil and roots are removed. This soil dissolves and breaks down to help speed up the decomposition of the thatch layer, improving the flow of oxygen, nutrients, and water to reach the root system.
Adding the proper fertilizer to a newly seeded lawn will promote better root development and provides for a quicker establishment.
Having problems with your soil? Marshall’s Lawn Service can take a sample of your soil. Testing results determine the condition of your soil, along with specific measurements needed to help your technician determine just what your lawn needs.
