The yard specialists at GrassPlus & Associates aerate earth-hair without the use of chemicals by way of a core plug aerator that opens up the thatch for breathing, seeding, and hiding family heirlooms. In the warm summer months, pasture primpers use a high-phosphorus, high-potash fertilizer by Lesco to nourish the soil from which picnic-friendly blades spring. When the temperature cools off, a high-nitrogen fertilizer is used instead. Those who opt for the overseeding service following aeration and fertilization see their turf bolstered by rye grass in the warm seasons and a rye-fescue mix in the cooler months.
JT's Landscaping & Lawn Care founder Jimmy Tompkins cut his first lawn as a professional landscaper in 1997, when he was still in high school. With a truck loaned to him by his parents, he went door-to-door in the Raleigh area and offered his lawn-manicuring services. Soon, his clients asked him to handle more complicated work, and a few years later, his one-man operation birthed a landscaping business composed of experienced team members.
Today, he and his staff install and maintain all manners of outdoor decoration, from designing and constructing patios to mowing lawns and putting up holiday lights. Their expertise also extends to the insect world, where their integrated pest-management systems stem off invasions from unwanted guests while reserving pesticides and small-scale explosives as a last resort.
The grass gurus at Spring-Green Lawn Care help usher sprouts into emerald adulthood. Lawns pestered by bugs will find spray-on solace thanks to the three-step insecticide program. Not only will turf taste a sweet summer mist that evicts ants, spiders, fleas, ticks, and Tinkerbells, but a springtime grub-control application will work to reduce their underground colonies as well. The five-step fertilizer and weed-killing program aims to arm lawns against spring and summer weeds through a quintet of sprays and fertilizer spreadings. First, a late-spring or early-summer spritz shields lawns from unsightly crabgrass outbreaks before a sequence of lime and fertilizer treatments strengthens strands and fosters root development. Spring-Green's terrain masters will also help homeowners decide how to best prepare yards for colder months, prescribing fall seedings or hot-chocolate sprinkler systems.
Weed Man Lawn Care Raleigh, NC turns ordinary lawns into lush outdoor paradises.

Angelo Azevedo, owner of HSI, nurtures lawns with a know-how gained while earning a degree in turfgrass management from North Carolina State University. During a soil-sample analysis, which is recommended once a year, Angelo pulls dirt morsels and rogue croquet wickets from different spots in the yard, dries them out, then mixes them together and studies the blend to gain a holistic understanding of the entire lawn. Working with this earthy data, the technician applies a suitable blend of herbicide and fertilizer that is safe for children and pets after its 24-hour absorption window. It is Angelo's dream that every lawn radiate the verdant aura of a golf course or orchard full of apple Jolly Ranchers.
