Lawn Care

Mowers

Use of high quality zero-turn riding commercial mowers and walk-behind commercial mowers for both residential and commercial customers.

Mowing Quality

Mower blades are sharpened every couple days to ensure a clean, quality cut as opposed to tearing the grass when blades are dulled which can lead to undue added stress on lawn.  Use Oregon flat blades exclusively.

Trimming

Lawn care service includes trimming around inside objects (trees, landscape areas, mailboxes, etc) as well as touching up the perimeter of the lawn area.

Fertilizer Program

1) Pre-Emergent + Fertilizer

 Pre-emergent + Fertilizer is applied in late April to give your lawn its first dose of nutrients following aeration and also to catch any weeds before they emerge.  This is a pellet-type fertilizer specifically chosen and proved out by Metro Lawn Care Solutions. 

2) Greening & Growth

Greening & growth mix of 2 pellet fertilizers and a high iron concentrated liquid spray.   This sets the lawn up for the entire summer as the nutrients are a mix of fast and slow release forms, lasting 12 weeks in the soil.   Applied in mid June.

3) Balanced Nutrients

 Third step is a balanced pellet mix of 19/19/19 in August.

Mulch

Landscape Mulching

Mulching landscaped areas and trees not only provides for an improved cosmetic appearance, but also prevents weed growth and preserves soil moisture to promote bush/tree health.

Walnut Mulch

Walnut is a dark brown mulch and can almost appear black when wet.
