With a fresh new year ahead of us our yards are a blank slate. Soon it will be time to start thinking about what we are going to do with our lawns this year. How much work, time and money are we willing to put into it? If you want to have the best-looking yard this year then it is better to hire a professional lawn management company. They not only make your lawn the best it has ever been but they also treat and protect your yard from pests and diseases that can harm your trees and shrubs. Take a look at our services below and see why Papa Turf has been offering quality lawn care to the metro-Atlanta area for over 30 years.
According to the USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map, Atlanta lies in what is known as a transition zone. That means we straddle the border between two zones; zones 7 and 8. Because of this, we see many different grass types on metro Atlanta lawns. If you don’t know what grass type you have growing in your lawn, then you could be doing more harm than good when it comes to fertilization and irrigation. With our seven-step lawn care package, you get a custom-made program that is designed to fit the needs of your grass. The program includes fertilization, weed control, and pest control to ensure your lawn is looking its best all year long.
Tree and Shrub Care
Many homeowners take their trees for granted and think that they are strong and will always be around. While trees do have long lifespans that is only true if they aren’t killed off by pests, diseases, or drought. Trees planted in our yard for decorative purposes are more vulnerable than their cousins that grow out in the forests. This is why it is important to check on your trees once in a while. At Papa Turf we offer a seven-step tree and shrub care program designed to feed and nurture your trees and ornamentals and protect them from pests and diseases. Out seven-step tree and shrub care program includes both deep root feedings and dormant oil.
Deep Root Feeding
At Papa Turf we offer deep root feeding services to ensure fertilizers are being directed where they need to go. This process works much faster than traditional fertilizers and results in a better appearance and fullness of the tree.
At the end of the season, we will apply what is known as dormant oil. Dormant oil is applied to your trees and shrubs in the fall to kill overwintering insects such as scale and mites that can infest your trees in the spring.
As the years wear on, our lawns start to look weaker and thinner than they used to. Aeration is a great way to rejuvenate lack-luster lawns. The reason your lawns may look so bad is probably nothing to do with your irrigation schedule or pests at all. The problem could be lying right under the soil. Soil compaction is a real issue in Atalanta lawns. Soils become compacted when they receive too much walking, playing, parking cars on, or mowing. The weight of these activities pushes the soil together tighter and tighter until not even water can penetrate. Aeration uses a machine that punches holes in your lawn to break up thatch and loosen compacted soil.
Exterior Pest Control
The reason we put so much time and effort into making our lawns look good is because we want to be able to show them off and enjoy them. But our outdoor gatherings and the look of your lawn can be ruined by the arrival of annoying pests such as grub, armyworms, chinch bugs, fire ants, fleas, and ticks. With pest control from Papa Turf, you don’t have to worry about pests ruining your lawn.
