Core Aeration (leaving the cores) of Lawn Areas to Increase Water, Air, and Nutrient movement to the turf, Reduce Soil Compaction and Promote Root & Shoot growth, once during the Fall season.

Core Aeration is accomplished with a machine called a lawn aerator. This machine creates openings, between one-half and three-quarters inches in diameter, loosening the hardened earth to allow water, air and nutrients to move around. The cores, that come from the holes out of the ground, are left on the soil surface, to be broken up by irrigation, mowing or rainfall.

Compacted soil prevents grass from establishing a healthy root system and keeps water and fertilizer from reaching the roots. Annual Core Aeration will help create a healthier lawn by allowing your grass to grow stronger deeper roots as well as Enhance Heat & Drought stress tolerance, Improve Resiliency & Cushioning and Aid in Thatch breakdown.

Herbicide, to Poison Ivy and/or Undesireable growth, applied to areas visible at the time of service.

VERY IMPORTANT POISON IVY ALERT:
After the application of Herbicide, the plants should be left to die completely on their own. Avoid watering the foliage (rain fall is fine). The plants will start to wilt and curl within 24-48 hours, turn yellowish-brown within 5-7 days. The foliage may take 4 or more weeks for complete kill, but the foliage, vines and roots will still have the oils present.

To avoid exposure, even after the vine is dead, you should NEVER attempt to cut, pull out, or burn the Poison Ivy vine! Burning can release the Urushiol into the air, which, if inhaled, could be harmful. Pulling the vines out of the ground will not eliminate all of the roots - the vines will likely return.

After at least 6 weeks and when the vines appear to be completely dead, you can start to dispose of the debris. During disposal, wear rubber gloves, eyewear and clothing that covers all your skin. Place all the poison ivy into a garbage bag along with your gloves. Close the bag tightly and double bag if possible, leaving no part of the plant exposed. Put these bags out with your other yard waste. To avoid a potential breakout, you may want to dispose of your clothes. If you do not want to throw them out, wash clothes separately with warm soapy water and use bleach if possible.

Depending on the location and the amount of Poison Ivy additional applications may be necessary, over the next few growing seasons, to obtain maximum control.

After raking or pulling the weeds/dead foliage, Place all of the debris into yard waste bags and place these bags out with your other yard waste.
