Service is a mechanical process that removes plugs of soil from the turf (plugs are left on the turf and will gradually break down and return to soil). Aerate means “to supply soil with air”. The benefits of aeration are: it improves the growth rate of grass and roots. This adds strength and health to the durability of the grass, it increases ability of water and fertilizer to penetrate to grass roots, it increases grass’s ability to withstand low moisture situations and heat stress. Bacteria within the soil can break down and decompose the layer of thatch. Aeration increases the soils ability to hold large amounts of moisture by preventing water runoff. Five Star Lawn Service is not reliable for damage to unmarked sprinkler heads and/or improperly buried underground sprinkler systems and/or cables, wires, etc.
Service consists of seven treatments from through . Applied by a backpack sprayer around your home and throughout your backyard, this trusted and dependable mosquito control solution (nontoxic) eliminates mosquitoes on contact and continues working for up to 21 days, depending on the impact of rain and weather elements. For optimum protection, control is highly recommended, every 21 days. 5 Star Lawn Service will leave you notice that we’ve been there. You don’t even need to be home during the application. 5 Star Lawn Service protects your family (and pets) from the nuisance and danger of mosquitoes by focusing on the areas of your property where mosquitoes and ticks are most likely to feed and harbor. (I used it on my farm all last year and it worked AWESOME!!!)
