Green Top Lawn Care offer several special services to maintain the health of your lawn and landscape.
|Fire Ant Management: Fire ants, have been known to make as many as 300 in a one-acre section. You may think you have eliminated them when you no longer see their mounds, but they may still be under ground or moved to a new location a few feet away. Fire ants will move their mounds up on the surface or below ground depending on moisture levels. Read more about Fire Ant Management…|
|Grub Prevention: Grubs are the larva stage of last year beetles. Your lawn will be doing its best to grow new roots, but it remains susceptible to moisture stress if the weather is dry and hot. Accordingly, it’s not really the grubs that kill your lawn, but a lack of hydration caused by the grubs that have eaten off the roots of your grass. Read more about Grub Prevention…|
|Lawn Aeration: Lawn aeration is the process of mechanically making finger-sized holes in your yard and depositing the removed plug on the lawn to break down. This allows fertilizer, water, and oxygen to get to the roots, which creates a healthier, greener lawn, and increases your lawn’s drought tolerance. Lawn aeration should be a part of regular lawn care preventive maintenance just like mowing, irrigation, fertilizing, weed and pest control. Read more about Lawn Aeration…|
|Lawn Disease Control: Take a good look at your lawn. If you see brown patches about one to five feet in diameter, then you may be dealing with an infestation of Rhizoctonia fungi. Some infestations are characterized by a yellow circle, commonly called a smoke ring, around the perimeter of the brown patch. Read more about Lawn Disease Control…|
|Lawn Surface Insect Control: Lawn surface insects can damage your lawn while also being a pest to you and your home. Chinch bugs can destroy a lawn in a matter of a few days. Billions of dollars of damage is done each year to lawns by Chinch Bugs. Chinch bugs suck the juices from your grass blades resulting in dry brown turfgrass that may or may not recover. The grass can be weakened so that it doesn’t recover after going through the winter. Read more about Lawn Surface Insect Control…|
|Sedge Control: Nutsedge, also called nutgrass, is a perennial weed that reproduces primarily by small underground tubers, called nutlets, that form at the bottom of underground stems. A single nutsedge plant can produce several hundred of these tubers during the summer. In one year, the reproduction from one tuber has the potential to produce 1,900 new plants and 7,000 new tubers.

|Soil pH Balancing: When your soil is too acidic or too alkaline, it is impossible for your grass to flourish. It may be starving for some nutrients while being overfed with others. Understanding how your soil’s pH level affects the health of your turf, it’s much easier to ensure that your lawn gets the nutrients it needs. We will apply either Lime or Sulfur, depending on your soil pH. Read more about Soil pH Balancing…|
