Agroscapes offers complete residential mowing and trimming services. Proper mowing techniques are of the utmost importance. Mowing heights should be no less than 2-1/2". This allows the lawn to absorb more water, thus making time spent on watering during the hot months less time-consuming. This also helps ensure a healthier lawn, keeping the weeds choked out. Keeping the grass too short will allow weeds to take over.

Building a greener, healthier lawn begins at the roots. Providing your lawn with the proper nutrients during changing seasons is a must for health root growth and grass health.
We suggest at least a four lawn application program which includes:
Early spring application applied in March and April
Late spring application applied in May and early June
Fall application applied in September and October

To optimize your overall lawn health, we suggest a Fall core aeration.
Core aeration is one of the most important maintenance practices available for your lawn. Aeration helps control thatch, improves the soil structure, helps create growth pockets for new roots, and opens the soil for water and fertilizer to reach the roots of your lawn.
Aeration removes thousands of small cores of soil from 1 to 3 inches in length. The cores melt back into the lawn with proper watering. The holes left by the removal of these cores catch fertilizer and water. Roots naturally grow toward these growth pockets and thicken in the process. Aeration holes relieve pressure from compacted soils, allowing oxygen and water to move more freely into the root zone.
Annual of semi-annual aeration is strongly recommended for lawns on heavy clay soils, like those of Ohio, and lawns that require thickening.
Installation of a Sod Lawn:
For an instant lawn, installing sod eliminates problems with soil erosion, mud, and weeds. As long as the sod is installed properly a fast beautiful lawn can be done almost any time during the growing season.
You can find sod in several of the most common grasses for your area. Trust your lawn care specialist to suggest the best sod for your region. The initial cost for sod installation is considerably more than grass seed. Seeding costs about the same in the long run since you have to overseed in spring and fall following the initial seeding to grow a dense lawn.
Before installation the soil must be prepared with plenty of organic matter so the soil will retain moisture, yet drain well. Aerate it to encourage microbial activity. Once the sod is planted, deep watering is of the utmost importance; the water must penetrate 6 inches below the sod.
Installation of a Seed Lawn:
Grass seed is somewhat inexpensive to purchase and covers a large area of prepared soil. You should buy the best quality seed recommended for your area. It is best to consult a lawn specialist for suggestions. Some seed mixtures you may hear are Kentucky bluegrass, tall fescue and perennial ryegrass and in various proportions.
Soil should be amended with a topsoil/comtil mixture and cultivated to a minimum of 4”. Removal of any surface debris is recommended as well as a fine grade. Once the seed has been installed, strawing and netting or an application of penn mulch should be applied. The use of straw however promotes more weed growth so you should ask your lawn specialist for the best application for the size area you are doing. Water faithfully and know that more seed must be added the following to ensure a dense, plush lawn.
