Precisely What You Need For Your Spring Lawn Care in North Carolina

Initial Grass Cutting

As the grass begins its spring growth spurt, our initial cutting service trims it down to an optimal height, encouraging a healthy start to the season.


  • Promotes Healthy Growth: Trimming the grass early helps stimulate thicker, more robust growth.
  • Disease Reduction: Cutting away the old growth decreases the risk of disease by improving air circulation around the base of the grass.
  • Aesthetic Appeal: A freshly mowed lawn is the cornerstone of curb appeal, setting the tone for your home’s springtime look.

Shrub Trimming

Shrub trimming shapes and maintains the health of your garden’s shrubbery, keeping it in perfect harmony with your landscaping vision.


  • Encourages Flowering: Proper trimming can result in more blooms for flowering shrubs.
  • Disease Management: Removing dead or diseased branches helps prevent the spread of plant diseases.
  • Visual Structure: Trimmed shrubs contribute to the overall aesthetic and balance of your outdoor space.

Ornamental Trees Shaping

Shaping ornamental trees involves carefully pruning them to promote health and maintain their designed aesthetic form.


  • Enhances Tree Health: Shaping helps trees grow strong by removing unhealthy branches.
  • Safety: Shaping reduces the risk of property damage or injury by removing potential hazard limbs.
  • Aesthetic Beauty: Well-shaped trees are visually appealing and add character to your landscape.

Aerating Soil

Spring is the perfect time to aerate your lawn, breaking up compacted soil to ensure water, nutrients, and air reach the roots of your grass where they’re most needed.


  • Root Development: Aerated soil allows roots to grow deeper, making your lawn more resilient and drought-resistant.
  • Efficient Nutrient Uptake: Improves the efficiency of water and fertilizer absorption, leading to a healthier, greener lawn.
  • Reduces Thatch Buildup: Helps manage thatch levels, preventing the development of lawn diseases and pests.

Soil pH Testing

Understanding the pH of your soil is crucial for tailoring our approach to your lawn’s specific needs, ensuring we apply the right nutrients and treatments to promote optimal growth.


  • Customized Fertilization: Tailors lawn care treatments to your soil’s specific requirements, maximizing health and growth.
  • Enhanced Nutrient Availability: Proper pH levels ensure nutrients are more readily available to your grass, improving overall vitality.
  • Prevent Grass Stress: Avoids the stress and damage that can occur from applying the wrong treatments, keeping your lawn lush and vibrant.

Pre-emergent Weed Control Application

This preventative measure involves applying a pre-emergent herbicide to stop weeds before they start, ensuring your lawn remains pristine.


  • Weed Prevention: Keeps future weed outbreaks at bay, saving you time and effort in maintenance.
  • Lawn Health: With fewer weeds, your grass can thrive without competition for nutrients, water, and sunlight.
  • Aesthetic Maintenance: A weed-free lawn maintains its beauty and usability throughout the season.

Mulching Last Season’s Leaves

Spring lawn care often starts with removing dead leaves. But instead of removing the last of fall’s leaves, we mulch them directly on the lawn, providing a natural nutrient boost.

  • Nutrient Recycling: Mulched leaves decompose, enriching the soil with organic matter.
  • Moisture Retention: This natural mulch helps retain soil moisture, reducing the need for supplemental watering.
  • Weed Suppression: A mulched leaf layer can inhibit weed germination and growth.

Fertilizing the Entire Lawn

A comprehensive fertilization program ensures your lawn has all the nutrients it needs to grow lush and green. Just as with your body, nutrition is a key part of spring lawn care.


  • Boosts Growth: Fertilizer provides essential nutrients that fuel healthy, vigorous lawn growth.
  • Enhances Green Color: A well-fed lawn exhibits a vibrant green color that’s visually stunning.
  • Improves Resistance: A nutritious diet helps your lawn better withstand pests, diseases, and environmental stresses.

Delivering and Spreading Pine Straw in Garden Beds

Pine straw is spread in garden beds as a natural mulch, enhancing the landscape’s beauty while providing practical benefits.


  • Soil Protection: Pine straw helps protect soil from erosion and temperature extremes.
  • Moisture Conservation: It retains soil moisture, reducing the need for frequent watering.
  • Weed Control: Pine straw naturally suppresses weed growth, keeping your garden beds neat and tidy.
