Lawn Care Services
East Coast Lawn offers excellent lawn care services in Frederick, Gaithersburg, and the surrounding areas. We take the work and worry out of having a lush, green lawn. Take a look at the additional options we offer listed below:
Core Aeration and Double Overseeding
This service should be considered yearly. It opens up compacted soil, which allows your lawn to breathe and absorb nutrients and water. We use a triple blend of turf-type tall fescue seed, blended specifically for this region and applied at 8 to 10 pounds per 1,000 square feet. This service helps to create a healthier, thicker lawn and a more expansive root system.
There is no need to rake/remove cores or dead/loose grass left on the lawn. Cores and thatch will disperse after a few weeks.
We’ll put down the pre-emergent and post-emergent herbicides to stop weeds in their tracks. We’ll also keep your lawn thick and healthy to help it choke out any stray weeds.
We can provide the nutrition your lawn needs, when it needs it. From early spring green-up to heavy, root-building treatments in the fall, we keep your grass healthy and looking great.
Grub Proofing & Insect Control
Lawn insects don’t stand a chance. We monitor for pests and control surface insects. And if grubs move in, we have effective treatments available. Grubs are small, wormlike insects that live in the soil and feed on grass roots. They can destroy a lawn in a matter of days if left untreated. You should consider grub proofing your lawn as an insurance policy to protect your turf investment.
Corrective Lime Application
When soil is acidic (low pH), fertilizer gets “locked up” and grass plants have trouble absorbing it. We can help with an application of lime. Lime will raise the pH to a level that encourages good grass growth and better use of fertilizer.
Humate Soil Conditioning
Humate soil conditioner is an amazing soil conditioner and microbe stimulant. One application of humate is the equivalent of applying 1/2 inch of a high quality organic compost over the surface of the lawn. It’s an amazing product because of how much it builds the soil and how much easier and less expensive it costs compared to performing a compost top dressing. Humate is comprised of Humic and Vulvic acid, which are proven to build organic matter in the soil and stimulate beneficial microbial activity.
Lawns that have one or two applications of Humate soil conditioner annually, have a deeper dark green color, stronger root growth, are more resistant to heat and drought stress, and have a healthier soil.
