Mow and Maintain a Lawn

Our precision mowing and curb edging will give your lawn a sharp, crisp appearance, blown free of grass clippings and debris. Our lawn mower blades are sharpened daily. Mowing height is generally set at three inches, but is adjusted depending on the time of year, weather, growing conditions, and customer preference.

Turf grass is mowed evenly, we line trim areas not reached by the mowers, and blow off all walks and drives to maintain a very neat appearance. At Austin's Lawn Care Services we mow the turf so that the grass clippings are returned or recycled back into the yard. We will leave no clumps of grass in the turf. Upon request, we can catch or bag the clippings.

Dethaching a Lawn

Thatch is a classic case of “too much of a good thing.” In fact, up to a ½” of thatch is useful for keeping your soil cool and moist. After that, however, it can prevent water and nutrients from moving down into the soil—in effect, strangling your lawn and making it more susceptible to disease and insect damage. Add stress from drought, mowing wear and tear, plus fertilizer and weed control, and things start to get scary.

Aerating a Lawn

Core-aeration helps provide relief from excess thatch and soil compaction. Core-aeration involves removing the plugs from the soil, which allows more water, fertilizer, and oxygen to the roots of the turf grass. In turn, microorganisms thrive and break down the thatch. Core-aeration is very helpful in preventing and controlling lawn diseases.

Fertilize a Lawn

A well-fertilized lawn is better at preventing weed infestation as well as drought and disease. In turn, healthy lawns help the environment by producing oxygen, cooling the air during hot weather and trapping and absorbing urban dust and pollution. 

Fertilizers provide your lawn with the nutrients needed to produce strong roots and grass that resists weeds, disease and insects. People and pets may play on the lawn immediately following application.

Weed Controlling a Lawn

A.L.C. prides itself on being environmental stewards. This practice entails applying the right product at the right time to control target weeds. Weed control - combined with regular fertilization, proper mowing and correct watering practices - will keep the grass thriving while the weeds disappear.

Weed control programs may involve both preemergent and postemergent applications to prevent spring weed emergence and in the summer to control pervasive weeds. The control product must contact leaf surface of the plant to be effective.

Overseeding a Lawn

A.L.C. can help you determine where and when your lawn can benefit from overseeding new seedlings into existing turf to promote overall turf health and development or whether a more detailed turf renovation job is needed to replace old worn out grass with a more tolerant variety.

Newly seeded lawns need to be watered daily to keep seeded areas moist. This is a must for maximum results. Maximum results can also be improved when overseeding is combined with a top dressing service.
