For more than six years, the technicians at Two Men and a Lawn Mower have primped yards, installed irrigation systems, and assisted clients with home-improvement projects. When they aren't lovingly trimming grass blades with the business end of a shattered CD, the technicians repair and seal decks and pressure wash outdoor surfaces.
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.
NaturaLawn of America devotes itself to caring for both lawns and the environment, eschewing harmful chemicals in favor of eco-conscious products. Natural, organic-based, and biodegradable products are administered to create healthy outdoor spaces that repel intrusive pests such as fleas, ticks, mosquitoes, and aging golf-course greens searching for a place to retire.
Technicians determine the individual needs of each lawn to develop custom treatment plans, taking soil tests and enhancing lawns with zero-phosphorus fertilizers, seeding and aeration treatments, or regimens that focus on balancing nitrogen, potassium, and sulfur. The pest-control professionals also fight off invasive species, applying milky-spore grub control—which uses a naturally occurring bacteria—to evict japanese beetles and european chafers. The lawn liaisons deter Lyme disease–carrying creatures with Tick Ranger and send moles on their way with biodegradable repellents or inside jobs to infiltrate the neighbor’s vegetable garden.
