Lawn Aeration

After the hot dry summer we have experienced this season, help your lawn this fall with a core aeration. An aeration for your lawn removes a small plug from the surface to allow for air exchange between the soil and atmosphere.  While there are many reasons to aerate your lawn, please see below, the most important is to help improve density of your turf, especially after the summer we had.  Contact us for an estimate so we can help improve the quality of your lawn.  Call us at 248-588-1694, email us at info@totallawncareinc.com, or Click Here to use our Online Request to schedule an appointment !

Benifits of a lawn aeration:

    • Improved air exchange between the soil and atmosphere.
    • Enhance soil water uptake.
    • Improved fertilzer uptake and use.
    • Enhance heat and drought stress tolerance.
    • Reduced water runoff and puddling.

Lawn Aeration – Explained!

        An Aeration is one of the best tools one can utilize when trying to obtain a Healthy Lawn. Core Aeration consists of making small holes in the lawn by either inserting small rods into it or by “coring”, or extracting a “plug” of soil and thatch out from the lawn. The following are just some of the benefits of performing a yearly lawn aeration:

Benefits of Lawn Aeration / Core Aeration

  • Oxygen can now easily reach the roots, allowing the grass to “breathe”, or let off gasses it produces
  • Fertilizers and Nutrients can now get easier access to the root system because of the available space
  • Water is now better able to permeate the soil, and reach the root system
  • The thatch is now broken up, allowing micro-organisms to come to the surface and feed on it, giving the turf more nutrients
  • The compacted soil surrounding the roots is now broken up, allowing new turf to grow, and giving you a fuller looking lawn

The benefits of core aeration are directly related to growing, and maintaining a  healthy lawn program. Many of our customers that take part in our own Fertilization can attest to the difference it makes.

Spring Is Almost Here in Metro Detroit!

It’s March Madness already, aren’t you glad you have time to sit back and watch the final four instead of raking the leaves and picking up sticks? That’s why you hired Total Lawn Care from Troy, so you can spend your weekend at Buffalo Wild Wings instead of in the cold.

Erin Go Bragh! Whoops, what do you mean it’s already the end of March? I haven’t had time to get any of my landscaping services ready for the season! Don’t Worry Total Lawn Care went into to business to handle just such a crisis, while you look forward to Cinco De Mayo, TLC will be out making sure your property is in tip top shape.

Our basic spring cleanup includes the removal of leaves and debris from grass areas and landscape beds, removal of all perennials from the previous fall, lawn cutting, bed edging and grass trimming.

For an even grander revitalization, we can also weed the beds after removing the leaves, trim the shrubs, and add mulch to give the beds a great manicured look.

We can leave the debris for city pickup if you prefer, or take it with us. All the plant material we remove from properties finds a fresh start on life. Leaves are added to a compost process at our shop. Sticks and branches are shredded and then join the leaves. All other plant debris is added to the appropriate composting stage to ensure we recycle every last bit.

We always make sure to recycle all the leaves and debris we remove.

If your lawn is already looking less than stellar, Total Lawn Care can come out and power rake dead thatch to invigorate the grass, aerate to allow important nutrients to get where they need to go, and over seed in areas that just seem to never fill themselves in.

Of course springtime also means turning on the irrigation systems and making sure those heavy plows didn’t break off any heads. It also means the first application of fertilizer in the process of making your grass look like Comerica Park’s.

Don’t be a stranger, give us a call at 248-588-1694, email us at info@totallawncareinc.com, or Click Here to use our Online Request to get more information.
