Lawn Aeration

R&D Lawn Care and Landscaping feels it is important to aerate your grass because it improves soil drainage. Lawn aeration consists largely of controlling lawn thatch and reducing soil compaction.

Lawn thatch is the layer of dead organic tissues that deprive the lawn from its much-needed oxygen, water and nutrients. Over time soil compaction makes it difficult for grass to root. It disturbs natural rainwater irrigation. Therefore, it is important to aerate the lawn. This is especially true for lawns with high traffic. If people walk or even run over your lawn, the pressure generates compaction in the soil.

Leaf Removal

Tired of all the leaf removal tools cluttering your garage? You may have a half dozen rakes and a couple of blowers, not to mention a couple of infomercial gadgets that promise to make annual leaf gathering faster and easier. There is a much simpler and much less strenuous solution to removing those nasty leave smothering your grass and making your lawn a splotchy mess in the spring.

Simply schedule a leaf removal appointment with R&D Lawn Care and Landscaping. Our friendly truck team will be glad to eliminate one less worry for you. Once you say the word, we’ll haul your leaves away from wherever they’re located and finish by cleaning up the area.

If you want just a one time clean-up or if you want to be put on the schedule for weekly or bi-weekly leaf clean-ups, we can do that. We have many different techniques that we use, such as, mulching of the leaves, bagging and removal, and we will even do hand raking (for an additional charge) if you don’t want our machines on your lawn.

Weed Control

Are you fed up with trying to control weeds yourself? Our lawn-care specialists can help.

At R&D Lawn Care and Landscaping we use only the best professional weed control products to combat crabgrass and other grassy weeds. Broad leaf weeds, such as dandelions, chickweed, etc. are sprayed with post-emergent herbicides. To build up the health and density of your turf, quality fertilizers are applied during the growing season.

There was a time when the strategy confronting weed control had to do with manual removal, including plowing, which can cut the roots of weeds. However, more recent and more reliable approaches are the use of herbicides.
