Complete Lawn Weed Spraying
There are three types of weeds that can get into your lawn (broadleaf weeds, grassy weeds, and sedges). Broadleafs get their name because their leaves are broader than either grassy weeds or sedges. Their leaves are divided down the center into two sections and the veins run sideways from the centerline of the leaf. If you have weeds in your lawn, they are more than likely broadleafs. Common Broadleaf weeds in Nebraska include: Dandelion, Clover, Purslane, Spurge, Plantain, and Curly Dock.
 
If your lawn has gotten out of control, then just let us spray your entire lawn and reclaim your lawn from those unsightly weeds.
 
 
Plug Aeration
Aerating your lawn with a plug aerator keeps it in good condition and helps maintain a healthy root system that decreases the need for water and fertilizer. The top two to three inches of soil get compacted with time, which affects the ability of the roots to get what they need to maintain healthy grass. Plug aerators use hollow tines to plunge into the ground and pull out a dirt plug. This leaves holes that allow improved nutrient, air, sunlight and water movement to the roots. These holes also retain water, which allows less-frequent watering while still keeping the lawn green and healthy.  Plug aeration also break-ups dense clay and heavily compacted soils, leaving more room for roots to grow. Healthier roots and less compacted dirt equals a lawn more able to withstand heat, disease, drought and traffic.
 
 
Overseeding
Overseeding is one of the most important lawn care tasks, yet few homeowners ever do it. So, you ask, if I fertilize my lawn properly, why do I need to add new seed, especially if my grass looks pretty good right now? The answer is grass is not immortal. After 3 to 5 years, grass plants will slow down their reproduction rates; they get tired just like we do as we age. Thin grass invites weeds.

Overseeding compensates for that natural slow down of the turf's reproduction. There are two major benefits to overseeding every 3 to 5 years. First, you insure your lawn stays thick and dense, or if it has thinned, you will make it thick again. Thick grass has few if any weeds if it is mowed over 2 inches tall.

The second benefit is disease resistance. The new varieties of seed you sow this year will have better disease resistance than those varieties already in your lawn.
 
 
Power Raking
Power raking, also called dethatching, is a process in which spinning tines or blades are beat into the ground to remove thatch. Thatch is accumulated organic materials such as leaves, grass clippings and roots that collect on top of the dirt beneath the grass. If this layer gets too thick (more than ½ inch), then it cuts off the roots from water, fertilizer, air and other nutrients they need
