Lawn Repair and Renovation in Westchester; Power Raking, Detaching, Seeding and Aeration

This has been the longest, hottest, driest summer on record! That’s saying a lot! We are going into the third month of ninety degree temps without a drop of rain! We should remember last winters lack of snow fall started off in a deficit of rainfall. In the last two weeks things have taken a turn for the worst in that we haven’t even received any rain from thunder showers. Combined with unrelenting humidity the conditions to grow cool season turf grass could hardly be worse!

We service clients from North Salem, Katonah, Bedford to Irvington, Dobbs Ferry and Hastings to White Plains, Scarsdale, Purchase, Rye etc.. It really doesn’t matter where you are, your lawns are stressed. While irrigation helps it does not take the place of natural rainfall. The soil temperatures are high, air is stagnant, water tables are low and the result is not green!

The good news is we are entering the ideal time to renovate your lawn. Removing dead grass and thatch layers from your lawn surface is critical to improving the appearance and performance of your lawn. Mechanical means include power rakes, hand tools and dethatching machines to remove dead grass while core aerators relieve compaction and create air spaces in the soil to promote root growth. Vertical slice seeders are the preferred choice for professional lawn care companies such as ours to create a seed base which will allow the seed to properly come in contact with the soil. Of course watering every day for thirty days is critical to insuring germination and best results.

As I have previously stated, seed quality is key to establishment of a high quality lawn. See my previous blogs for more info, call or email us at
