If you want your lawn to look a healthy a luscious green, it will take more than just mowing and watering to do the trick. Many homeowners are unaware of the benefits that fertilizing their lawn can have. Luckily, our lawn care experts have been fertilizing properties throughout Springfield, IL for over 13 years with satisfied customers. The key to accurately fertilizing your property is to use the right ingredients, time the treatments properly, and use the correct amount of product depending on the size of your lot.
To keep your lawn healthy, you have to start at the roots. Grassroots require a specific amount of oxygen to continue growing properly, however, areas of your lawn that are frequently walked on or continuously receiving pressure from large objects will naturally suffer from soil compaction. This means that the oxygen levels within your soil and roots have depleted, making it impossible for nutrients to get below the Earth. At Wellman’s Lawn Care, we provide lawn aeration services to keep your lawn healthy and stable all year round.
Installing a professional irrigation system on your property is more affordable than you may think. Not only are lawn irrigation systems extremely convenient for watering your grass, but it allows you to control the amount of water being used, saving you money on overwatering costs throughout the year. Whether you own a mansion or a small home in the Springfield, IL area, our irrigation systems are perfect for any property size!
A lawn that appears thin, discolored, or has moss, despite regular watering and fertilization, may be experiencing a low soil PH. Issues of low soil pH (below 6.5) can easily be remedied by the application of lime.
Lime comes either in powdered or pelletized form and is applied to the lawn via a broadcast spreader. Liming neutralizes the soil, which makes nutrients from fertilizers more available to your grass. This results in greener, thicker grass that is more resilient to weed infestation.
Lime can be applied at any time during the lawn care season, though the service is most performed in the Spring. Testing your soil pH (which we can do) is a good way to determine whether your lawn would benefit from liming.
This is the best method for overseeding established turf. Slit-seeders have vertical cutting blades that cut through the thatch layer and open up a slit or miniature furrow in the soil. The depth of the slit or miniature furrow is based on the type of grass seed used. A general rule of thumb is to go no deeper than half the length of the grass seed husk. The slit-seeding unit should have concave disk blades that follow in the slits and keep them open while the seed is dropped; it ensures the seed gets into the soil where it can germinate.
Slit-seeding generally takes less seed than broadcast seeding, because most of the seed gets into the soil so it can germinate. More seed-to-soil contact means a higher germination rate and a better stand of new grass. Get a strong, healthy, green yard. Call us at 217-502-2540.
Over-seeding is simply the distribution of new grass seed, via walk-behind broadcast spreader, to an area where turf has already been established (this typically means your whole yard). Best results are attained when this is done in either early spring or fall, but we can provide the service at any time during the lawn care season. The primary purpose of over-seeding is to increase lawn density, thus making it less susceptible to disease, weed infestation, and loss of grass due to drought.
The seed we generally use when overseeding is a Sun and Shade Mix. Designed for lawns in our region, it is a mix of Kentucky Bluegrass, Turf type tall fescue, and Perennial Ryegrass. Though this is our mixture of choice, we are happy to accommodate other preferences.
A seed starter fertilizer may be used to aid seed in germination and initial growth. For more information, or to schedule your seeding, call our office at 217-502-2540.
