Sod Installations

Sod can be rolled out for an immediate green look, It has instant appeal, the initial maintenance to get it established is much easier, and it has a tight root system so few weeds grow into it. However, you have less control over the blend of grass seed that’s going into your lawn.

Hand Seeding

Roger B. Sturgis & Associates

Hand Seeding is the least expensive option. Many landscaper will recommend hand seeding or hydroseeding because from the day of germination the grass seed makes it’s home in the soil that you have in your yard.

HydroSeeding

Hydroseeding is a fast way to seed large areas Hydroseeding uses a nutrient rich papery mulch to envelope the seeds. This mulch helps to maintain preferred water content and encourages better germination rates than hand-seeding. Hand spreading a layer of seed by below the hydromix insures the seed will be in direct contact with the soil and provides the best results.

Fall Cleanups

Roger B. Sturgis & Associates

While jumping in the large leaf piles is one option for dealing with all the newly fallen leaves, it isn’t the most practical option. It is important to remove leaves from the lawn soon after they’ve fallen. Lawns need air and light to thrive and grow. Leaves block both of these lawn necessities and may suffocate the lawn, causing brown, dead patches.

Recent technological advancements have allowed us to do more than just watering, we are now able to administer fertilizer and pest control products via the irrigation. Fertilizer injectors are the most efficient way to feed plants by delivering nutrients in a liquid form directly to the roots of the plants. Fertilizer injectors are a fast and accurate way to feed an entire garden, landscape, nursery or greenhouse.

Installation

Your lawn and turf areas are the most important areas to be considered when deciding upon a sprinkler system design. The lawn is the first to brown or diminish in visual quality, therefore the most irrigation emphasis is placed on the lawn. A typical lawn sprinkler layout is designed to cover 100% of the lawn areas with exactly the amount of water that your type of lawn requires. Experience and the right set of tools allows us to install irrigation systems with minimal disturbance to the lawn while maximizing their effectiveness.

Winterization/Activation

Winterizing ones irrigation is a must in New england. If there is any water left in the irrigation lines, the lines will most certainly freeze, expand and fracture. This can lead to unnecessary expenses such as irrigation diagnostics and repair. We will also program your irrigation system to accommodate your individual needs. Your irrigation system should activate only when you want it to, lay dormant when you want it to and leave your yard with just the right moisture content.

Pesticide Treatments

Roger B. Sturgis & Associates

Pre-emergent herbicides, or weed preventers, control crabgrass and other weeds by stopping their seeds from germinating. An application early in the growing season works wonders; its like vaccinating your lawn against weeds. Weed preventers are not effective against weeds that have already begun to grow, so you must apply them before germination to gain any benefit. Crabgrass, the primary target of lawn weed preventers, normally germinates just after forsythia blooms, so take your cue from Mother Nature.

Weeding

Roger B. Sturgis & Associates

Weeding is one of those things that everyone needs done and no one wants to do. As tedious as it is, weeding is important because weeds robs your garden, lawn and beds of important nutrients and water that your plants need. Some weeds, such as nutgrass, release chemicals in the surrounding soil that can be harmful to surrounding plants.
