Davidson in North Carolina is a small, unique city. It may be most famous for Davidson College, known around the world as an important academic institution. It has a small but active population. Davidson is only about 5.1 square miles, but that doesn't keep it from being focused on growth and community. The fact that a city that small is home to 19 sizable parks is one indicator of their intent to keep the city green and flourishing. Some contributors to this are the humble home front and back yards. While it may take some upkeep, people in Davidson seem to rise to the challenge to present beautiful lawns. Paying for professional lawncare services helps. If you are thinking, "It isn't for me," consider all that you have to do to keep your landscape humming along and also consider pricing our services.
Here is a full list of our offerings:
General Lawn Maintenance:
If you have grass of your own, you probably already know the amount of care it can take, what with watering, mowing, fertilizing and all. Mowing is the easier part of lawncare, as long as you know what type of grass you have and how often it should be mowed. If you 'scalp' your grass, meaning cut it too short, it may turn brown for a time or even die, especially in winter. If you let it grow too long, it just looks ragged.
Then you have the more refined parts involved in grass care. You have to do both trimming and edging. Trimmers, which are also sometimes called 'weed eaters,' are used to get the parts a mower might miss. Edging is used to get rid of those scrubby clumps of grass lining your sidewalks. Your mower can't reach them, but an edger can. You will either have to have an attachment or a special tool to do this.
Fertilization and Weed Control:
When you embark on the path of trying to figure out how to fertilize your not-so-fertile grass, there are a few things that you may want to consider. First and foremost, what is your grass short on? It may be potassium, nitrogen, or many other things, or you could find that you have one of these too much in excess. Get your soil tested so lack of knowledge doesn't have fatal consequences for your poor grass.
Fertilizing your grass will help it to resist disease and remain healthy and green. It will also help it resist winter cold. After all, what's the point of having a lawn that doesn't even look nice? You should fertilize at least once a year.
It is probably not a stretch to say that the absolute most hated yard chore is removal of weeds. It never seems to be done, and after a while it is too exhausting to bother with. Investing in a pre-emergent weed killer will make your personal lawncare considerably easier.
Aeration and Seeding:
Thatch is a buildup of dead grass that can choke out nutrients and water from grass. When you are watering and water is pooling on top, that tells you your grass may not be getting much water. Thatch is hard to break up, and the most common way to do this is by aeration. Aeration is simply punching holes in turf and removing plugs of dirt and thatch. This will loosen up the soil and thatch so your grass can enjoy a proper supply of nutrients. After aerating, you may find that your grass looks thin and seems to be struggling. Sometimes you will need to do seeding, which means to lay down new grass seed to make it as thick and beautiful as you desire. This way, your grass can choke out the weeds instead of the other way around, and you can control the growth.
General Landscaping Needs:
There are so many things involved in lawncare and landscaping. Mulch is something that adds nutrients and moisture to grass. You simply cover your garden with organic mulch, such as wood chips or shavings, and it will create a natural barrier against pests and other things.
Pine needles create a neat fire hazard when they die and spread across your landscape. They can be a real problem for pets, because they are somewhat sharp. Dead pine needles also are ugly brown, which does not make them a complement to green grass. hey can drop in late spring to early fall, or on some species of pine they may fall in spring or early summer. You may want to get our professional landscaping services to remove needles so you can fully enjoy summer break.
Planting shrubs that you can then design and shape can be enjoyable, but it is also a lot of work. This is why you may want to look into good quality landscaping services. We can help you plant shrubs as well regularly trim your bushes. Leave the maintenance to us!
The other thing to consider is that if you do not have established grass, but instead you have a yard with big dirt patches, you can lay down sod rather than take the time to seed new grass. You can simply lay down new patches of grass that will quickly become established. Pricing quality options that give you what you want is easier now than ever, since it can all be done online.

Clean Up Service:
We offer leaf removal as well. It is one thing to plant trees, but if you are looking at your yard thinking, "It's too much work for me to get all those leaves," you may want to hire professional help. If you have deciduous trees, you may only have to worry about leaves in fall. If your trees are evergreen, they may drop leaves all year round, and especially in spring. We help with maintenance. If you have nut trees, you may find that nuts fall enough to be a real nuisance, and we can take care of that too.
Tree trimming doesn't have to come at a heavy cost to your energy and time. You can get a professional to come out and help you.
