Blackwood Landscaping's talented team of landscape artists maintains front and backyard health with lawn services that use environmentally affectionate products. Tend grassy areas of up to 10,000 square feet with an aeration procedure, during which cylindrical plugs punch small holes into the soil to reduce compaction and unearth fossilized lawn ornaments. This professional process diminishes thatch and allows roots improved access to delectable nutrients and nourishing lime. Afterwards, a fueling fertilizer encourages the growth of grass, much like height restrictions on tilt-a-whirls encourage the growth of small children. The machinery used in these processes is 38 inches wide, so any gates must be larger than 38 inches, or the household must own a teleporter.
