Doggie Damage Recommendations

We suggest a Core Aeration, Seeding and 3 Gypsum Applications. Dog owners report success with gypsum, It may be that it improves soil drainage as well and also prevents the urine from collecting near the crowns and roots of the grass plants.

Doggie damage what can I do?

The light brown/yellow spots in the area where your dog went this winter are burns from his/her urine, and may not recover. You can try raking thoroughly, water heavily, and using our recommendations to the left. We also suggest using our affiliate product Grass Green by Pet Honesty

F.A.Q.

F.A.Q’s and what to do!

Compacted soil and thatch are the two biggest obstacles to a beautiful lawn. They tend to suffocate grass plants by preventing air, water and nutrients from reaching the root zone. This means your lawn looks less than satisfactory in spite of adequate fertilization, water and tender loving care! Core Aeration opens up the thatch and helps relieve compaction. It should be a regular part of your annual lawn maintenance program.

We have specific tasks we are doing on each visit. Our equipment is calibrated to provide the proper rate, our vehicle is fully loaded for our day’s work, and we are well-organized, resulting in an efficient use of our time. We have a Triumph Sprayer/Spreader which is a machine that sprays weeds and fertilize at the same time. We will be many more times efficient than the average homeowner because of the above as well as the fact that we do this every day. When we are out on the lawn, we inspect the turf for potentially damaging insects, weeds, or diseases. 

As with any lawn application, it is suggested that you keep pets and children off the lawn until lawn application is dry. Since we use granular fertilizer, your wait time would be dependent on the amount of weed control that is applied. Usually 1-2 hours.

Not all lawns are alike! Each lawn has its own distinction. Different soil types, shade versus full sun, or different types of grass usually play the biggest roles in the conditions of a healthy lawn. Different grass types can also show up during dry weather, as well as insects and disease play a factor as well.

The average turf grass consumes about one inch of water a week. If there is not enough rain to meet the need, then watering is the only answer. Soil dries out from the surface downward. By deep watering you encourage deeper rooting of the grass. Water each area long enough to saturate the soil to a depth of six inches, that’s about one inch of water or 20 to 30 minutes per area, 3 times per week or 1 hour per week. When seeding, it’s about one inch of water or 20 to 30 minutes per area per day. If possible, apply most of this inch of water at one time in the early morning. Summer temperatures may affect your watering times due to evaporation. Evaporation may require you to water up to three inches in one week to give the plant an actual inch of water. We also have a product  called Moisture Manager that can help reduce watering time up to 50%. 

Your lawn should be mowed at a minimum of 3” during the growing season. Depending on the lawn, maybe even a little longer. Your lawn should be mowed frequently enough so that you don’t remove more than 1/3 of the leaf blade, at least once a week in the spring and fall when the lawn is growing more vigorous. The mower blades should be sharp and change directions of mowing as often as possible.
