Maintaining a healthy and beautiful lawn can seem like an impossible task due to the different weather and conditions we face throughout the year here in Oregon. Luckily, there are ways to prevent your lawn from looking dull. Different lawn care services can rejuvenate and energize your turf, giving it the lively green hue it deserves. The best lawn care services to schedule are fertilization, weed control, aeration, and overseeding. Each one brings its own perk and can transform your lawn's appearance from dreary to vibrant. Fertilization can provide your lawn with essential nutrients, giving it everything it needs to grow healthy and strong. Weed control treatments can eradicate weeds, decreasing competition for nutrients in your turf. Aeration can break up compacted soil, creating passageways for nutrients to reach the roots of your grass. Lastly, overseeding can help fill in bare spots on your lawn.

Fertilization treatments can help your lawn grow healthy and strong by providing it with essential nutrients.

Fertilization treatments can provide your lawn with the nutrients that it will need to grow healthy and strong. Most fertilizers are packed with nitrogen, phosphorous, potassium, and other nutrients. Together, these nutrients help your grass create a strong root system, stay green, and fight off diseases.

Fertilization treatments should be applied throughout the year to give your lawn a constant stream of essential nutrients. Some companies may also use a slow-release fertilizer that delivers nutrients over time. That way, your lawn can then benefit from the fertilizer long after it is first applied.

Pre-emergent weed control treatments can prevent weeds from taking over your lawn.

Pre-emergent weed control treatments are an excellent way to prevent weeds from competing for space, nutrients, and resources on your lawn. This type of weed control treatment can prevent seeds from sprouting through the surface and taking over your lawn.

Here are some common weeds in Oregon that pre-emergent weed control treatments are effective against:

  • Common chickweed
  • Dandelion
  • Crabgrass
  • Henbit
  • And many more!

Aeration will make it easier for nutrients and other resources to reach the roots of your grass.

If your lawn is compacted, nutrients and other resources will have trouble reaching the roots of your grass, and your grass could struggle to grow. To remedy that situation, you should schedule an aeration service. Aeration is the process of loosening compacted soil, creating small canals that nutrients and other resources can use to reach the roots of your grass. By having your lawn aerated, your grass will have access to everything that it needs to thrive.

Here in Oregon, you should have your lawn aerated in the fall because your grass will be strong enough to endure the process.

Overseeding is an excellent service to schedule if you want a dense lawn.

Overseeding can help property owners struggling to grow grass achieve a dense, full lawn. When you schedule an overseeding service, seeds will be spread across your lawn. These seeds will fill in any bare or patchy areas on your lawn and give you a thick, beautiful lawn that you can be proud of.

You should schedule an overseeding service directly after your lawn has been aerated to the seeds can fall into the holes for excellent seed-to-soil contact!
