At Almstead, our approach to lawn care takes into account the health of your entire landscape by drawing on wisdom from both traditional and organic lawn care methods...
In combination with this holistic approach, we offer three separate comprehensive care programs: Organic Based, Pure Organic, and Traditional. There are unique benefits to each of these programs. An Almstead Lawn Care professional will help determine what’s best for your lawn with you based on your desired level of management and aesthetics.
By utilizing natural soil supplements and organic fertilizers, the Organic Base program builds up the strength and health of your lawn naturally. This program also makes use of integrated treatments to keep pests and weeds in check.
As your lawn becomes organically richer, these non-organic treatments can often be reduced over time. Organic-Based care works well as both a stand alone program and as a gateway to Pure Organic lawn care.
A healthy, thick lawn with a diversity of turf species protects itself naturally. The 100% organic fertilizers and treatments in this program help create biologically sound, hearty turf. This program also focuses on improving soil conditions with compost, compost tea and other natural soil supplements.
Almstead has developed a comprehensive organic program for your entire landscape based on proven methods and tailored to the trees, shrubs and turf in our region. Visit our Organic Care page for more information.
Our Traditional care program enhances the lushness and beauty of your lawn by utilizing the highest quality conventional treatments available in the industry safely and effectively.
A combination of traditional fertilizers, soil supplements, and weed controls make this a highly effective regimen to achieve a flawless looking lawn.
Lawn care is a science, just like tree and shrub care. For optimal health, both turf and trees require the expertise that a dedicated professional from Almstead can provide. We believe that our comprehensive care approach is not only convenient for you as a consumer, it’s also best for the overall health of the plant species on your property. There are always new advancements in turf management, and everyone on our team here participates in extensive and ongoing training to ensure that what we deliver is the best possible lawn service available.
Core Aeration, Overseeding & Top Dressing
Core Aeration is the process of removing plugs of soil and depositing them back on top of the soil surface. This allows air, water, and nutrients to penetrate the soil -- which improves root growth. At this time, it is also most beneficial to Over-Seed your lawn with the most desirable blends of turf grass. It is an easy way to improve color and density of the turf and make it less susceptible to diseases. Top-Dressing refers to adding a layer of organic high-grade compost and sand mix will ensure you have a great turf. It gives seeds more soil to grab onto and the right diet to thrive.
Conducting a soil test gives us a great deal of information about a lawn and the specific steps we should take to make turf as healthy as possible. Depending on the program you're interested in, we offer a comprehensive traditional test as well as a test of the active microorganisms in the soil.
