• Turf Care

  • Mowing

    Mowing requires the most time and labor, and therefore needs to be performed efficiently. We map out our commercial sites strategically to help our crew teams maintain a vigorous work flow. Mowing height and frequency play another key in turf health. Our mowers are set no lower than 3.5' to ensure that grass blades are cut at an optimal height. All our mowers are set as "Mulching" mowers. This eliminates unwanted grass discharge to beds and walks, as well as returning nutrients back to the soil where it can benefit your turf.

  • Watering

    Mother Nature doesn't always cooperate with our turfs optimum water requirements. Although we mow higher to encourage deeper root penetration in the soil, sometimes we need to supplement water to the turf. Our water management practices help turf grass stay lush and green, especially during the hot, Texas summers.

  • Turf Applications

    Fertilization. Lawns shall be fertilized as warranted with a commercial fertilizer. The number of applications will be dependent on the type of nitrogen used and the type of turf grass.

    Disease Control. Disease Control is maintained through proper fertilization, mowing, and water management. In the event that disease problems occur, the contractor will use treatments to stop or slow the progression of the disease. This program does not include the prevention of disease with weekly or monthly applications of disease control products, although such protection is available at substantial additional cost.

    Disease caused by infection of nematodes (microscopic round worms that feed on roots) is not included. Currently, there is no effective nematode control product registered for use on landscapes. Contractors will recommend additional treatments and procedures to minimize damage should nematodes become a problem. These treatments will be provided at additional const. Nematode control is available for some sports turf locations and will be quoted separately if required.

    Insect Control. The Contractor will provide control of turf damaging insects using Federal and State registered insect control products as needed to prevent or mitigate turf damage. Those treatments do not include the prevention of fire ant infestation which is available at added cost.

  • Weed Control

    Our philosophy with weed control is to maintain a healthy stand of turf. Pre and Post emergency weed sprays are available if desired. Dense healthy turf is our best friend when it comes to weed suppression.

    Pre-Emergence is used to control mostly crabgrass and goose grass and applied in the spring. Lawns that are healthy and vigorous will naturally keep unwanted weeds from growing. Post-Emergence weed sprays suppress broadleaf weeds like dandelion and clover. May and September are best application periods when those weeds are growing vigorously. Again, dense healthy turf is our best friend to combat weeds.

  • Overseeding & Aerating

    Aeration is performed to solve two problems: soil compaction and thatch. Lawns naturally have compacted soil, and when loosened, the roots can plunge deeper into the ground. Thatch is the buildup of dead grass material that lies between the zone of green vegetation and the soil's surface. Overseeding is performed with aeration to fill in bare areas of the turf and to thicken existing turf. Improved drought and disease resistant seeds are highly beneficial to incorporate into your turf. Excessive foot traffic, drought, insect, and disease can all cause thin or weak spots in your lawn. Overseeding each year helps mitigate these common issues.
