Soil Testing and Nutrient Management for Your Baltimore Lawn 

Soil testing is essential for identifying the ideal fertilizing blend for your grass. Samples of soil are collected and submitted to an independent lab for examination and analysis. The findings will display the soil pH and nutrients in your landscape, such as nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. This data can assist Scientific Plant Service in determining the best fertilizer application to promote healthy lawn development.

Core Aeration and Seeding for Baltimore Athletic Fields and Lawns

Aeration is one of the most effective ways to enhance drainage and minimize landscape compaction. Reseeding following aeration may stimulate healthy growth in patchy sections of your Baltimore landscape. Our aerators and slit seeders come in a variety of sizes to accommodate lawns ranging from 2,000 square feet to 200 acres.

Our athletic field maintenance services include core aeration. Deep-tine aeration removes deep cores of soil from intensively utilized natural grass sporting grounds to enhance drainage and prevent compaction.

Control Weeds with Our Weed and Feed Lawn Care Service in Baltimore

Our unique three-step “weed and feed” program is a critical part of our Baltimore lawn care company. This process provides your lawn with nourishment while preventing broadleaf weed growth. The steps include the following: 

  • Applying POLYON fertilizer at the start of spring to kick off a release of nitrogen during the summer. We add an herbicide to the fertilizer to prevent the germination of Crabgrass and Goosegrass. 
  • When weed activity peaks later in spring, we return to apply herbicide controls and treat active weed zones. 
  • Near the end of summer, we assess your lawn for weed growth and apply POLYON for the fall. The autumn fertilization gives your yard a head start for spring health. 

You can grow a strong, healthy lawn with the help of our quality weed and feed system.

Wildlife and Pest Control for Baltimore Lawns

Tick, Flea, and Mosquito Control 

To decrease mosquitoes in your Baltimore yard, we use mosquito insecticides or organic repellents. 

To keep deer ticks, which transmit Lyme disease, at bay, Our Baltimore lawn care company utilizes tick tubes, pesticides, and repellents. 

Deer Repellant 

Deer will not graze on your plants if you apply deer repellent to your plants every month. To avoid deer resistance to the repellant, we utilize a variety of products. We may also fog property and wood lines during peak tick breeding seasons to keep deer away and reduce the spread of Lyme disease.

Grub Prevention and Mole Control 

Lawn grubs can devastate your lawn and cause long-term harm. They also attract moles, which eat grubs. Our grub management service prevents grubs from dwelling on your grass, which helps keep moles at bay. Call our Baltimore lawn care company to schedule treatments to keep your grass healthy, pest-free, and stunning all year.
