Professional Lawn Care FAQs
Can I fertilize my lawn myself?
It is possible, but tricky, to fertilize your lawn yourself. You will have to figure out your grass type and soil pH in order to choose the best type of fertilizer. Fertilizer should be spread using a specialized spreader, and it must be spread evenly to avoid chemical burns. To ensure proper fertilization technique and the integrity of the final results, hiring a professional lawn care service is your best bet.
What is aeration?
Aeration is a technique that loosens compacted soil, allowing for air, water and fertilizer to reach the grass at its roots. Aeration rejuvenates your lawn, maximizing the effects of fertilizer and weed control. It is highly recommended to aerate your yard once a year, especially for lawns with dense soil.
