Your lawn is a valuable, multi-purpose part of your property. For most homeowners, it makes up the largest part of their landscape. A homeowner with a thick and verdant lawn will reap many benefits. It starts with raising their property value, because it is more attractive to view. A lawn also is part of the living space. A lawn with less pests makes it far more enjoyable to spend a day outside lounging, eating, playing games, or having guests over for a party. Also, fewer outside pests also generally mean fewer inside pests as well. It can even improve the property’s air quality. Healthy turf absorbs carbon and emits oxygen much better than sick, diseased blades. Since 2005, Turf Wizards has been a leader in the Apex area of revitalizing the health of lawns for homeowners, and will continue to do so for years to come.
It all starts from the first time you contact us. After your initial phone call, we promise to visit your residence within 48 hours for a thorough inspection of your lawn, and an honest estimate. Your grass type will be noted, and our staff will also report on:
• The overall condition of your lawn
• Types of weeds that are found
• The procedures we recommend
• Schedule recommendations based on your grass type
• The products we would like to apply
After we present our thorough report, we will also give you a realistic timeline on when to expect noticeable results.
If there is one thing we have learned during the course of our education and field experience, it is that every lawn cannot be taken care of exactly the same way. This is especially true in this transitional area of the country, where many species of grass are present. Warm weather species have different requirements than fescue turf. The layout of the landscape, and the house itself will have an effect on sunlight and shading.
Since no two yards will be exactly the same, the staff at Turf Wizards knows that having one standard cookie cutter lawn care program will not be effective for every property. We tailor our program based on our initial inspection to the specific needs of your grass. Having an irrigation system is helpful to establish a watering schedule. Fescue is more drought resistant, while warm weather grass will need to be diligently watered during dry spells. However, if an area is dug out or damaged by trauma, fescue will not spread back out and recover the bare spot like bermuda, zoysia, or centipede will. That is why overseeding will be even more critical.
Lawn Fertilization and Weed Control
Turf Wizards strategically spaces out our fertilizer and weed control applications to give your grass a constant, uniform supply of nutrients during the entire active growing season, while diligently making sure there are no unwanted floral pests in the yard who seek to steal that needed nourishment and displace the turf.
Aeration and Overseeding
This should be done at least once a year, and for those with fescue turf, it must be done in the fall. The staff at Turf Wizards will use our core aerators for a uniform, thorough loosening of your compact soil.
If you would like to make your lawn look the best that it can for the entire year, a professional team is best suited to get the job done. And you will find no more elite a team than at Turf Wizards. Serving the Apex region for over a decade, give us a call or email us today.
