If you have purchased your new house and moved in, you are ready to start creating your dream home. However, creating your ideal property goes beyond finding the best new furnishings and updating your floors. If you are a new homeowner looking forward to enjoying the outdoor space, taking time to grow a healthy and vigorous lawn is essential. If you want a beautiful, thriving lawn to go along with your new coat of paint, starting your yard off on the right foot is critical. To start caring for your property consider scheduling these lawn care treatments.
Growing and maintaining turf can be challenging under the best circumstances. Numerous factors contribute to a healthy lawn, and it’s not worth leaving those to chance. Soil testing is one service that can help you determine what your lawn needs to be healthy. Without testing, it is impossible to know if there are limiting soil conditions such as nutrient deficiency or pH imbalance.
You can conduct a soil test yourself or trust an experienced professional at Scientific Plant Services. The soil test results will give you valuable information about your soil’s pH and determine if your soil has any nutrient deficiencies.
Regular Fertilization and Weed Control
Once you have results from your soil test, you can create a fertilization and weed control schedule. Fertilization can help your turf stay healthy and grow vigorously during the growing season and weed control reduces the growth of weeds that compete with turf for nutrients.
As a new homeowner, it’s beneficial to work with a professional lawn care company to ensure that your lawn receives the best treatment from the start. Scientific Plant Service can not only provide excellent fertilization and weed control services but can also offer guidance on the best cultural practices. If you require grub control or turf disease prevention, we can also administer those treatments. We can help your new lawn look as beautiful as possible.
Aeration and Seeding
Over time your soil may become compacted and be less able to deliver the necessary water and oxygen. Aeration is a treatment that can relieve this compaction by pulling out “cores” of soil.
Many lawns may also require seeding to fill in various patches that have developed over time. It is always a good idea to incorporate improved varieties into your lawn. Seeding goes well with aeration since the seeds can fall into the new holes and start germinating.
If you are a new homeowner ready to enjoy a beautiful, healthy lawn, contact Scientific Plant Service today to explore potential lawn care treatments.
