Frequently Asked Questions

What is “Core Aeration” and how do I know if I need it?


Core Aeration loosens the soil to improve the flow of air, water and fertilizers to the grass roots. Aerating your lawn also controls thatch build up, relieves compacted soil, and stimulates root development, creating a healthier lawn. This is one of the best things you can do for your lawn once a year.

How much water does my lawn need?


Your lawn needs 1 to 1-1/2" (3-4cm) of water weekly. Mother Nature provides water, but she sometimes needs help. To determine the need for supplemental water, look for these telltale signs of oncoming drought stress: Areas of the lawn especially near concrete or asphalt (sidewalks and driveways), under large trees and on slopes, take on a dark, silvery or smoky blue-green haze. In extreme cases the lawn appears yellowish. Footprints or lawnmower wheel marks don't spring back shortly after they are made. If your lawn shows symptoms of drought, water it immediately regardless of the time of day. Under normal circumstances, early morning is the best time to water your lawn so that the leaves can dry slowly and naturally without too much evaporation, and instead with most of the water penetrating the soil. Regular, fairly deep watering is better than daily light sprinklings. Deep watering and allowing the lawn to dry out between watering will force the roots to penetrate deeper in search of moisture.




Can I pay my bill online?


Yes, we can email you an invoice with a secure link for you to pay online. Go Green, Go Paperless!




When is the best time of day to water my grass?


The best time of day to water your lawn is in the early morning. Moisture is able to reach the roots, while the leaf surfaces are able to become dry. Watering at night or late in the evening creates a very humid environment and should be avoided. The excessive moisture, combined with high, humid, summer night temperatures, are conditions optimal for severe disease problems.




Do I need to be home for this service?


There is no need for you to be home while your lawn is serviced as all of the work takes place outside your home.
