Mowing Is Only the Beginning
Commercial Lawn Care Services — Keeping Your Lawn Healthy for Your Clients and Tenants
There’s More to a Healthy Lawn Than Meets the Eye
Maintaining the health of your lawn requires mowing the grass at the correct height and with consistency. But sometimes, it’s the unseen that can have an even greater influence on how healthy and long-lived your turf will be.
Your U.S. Lawns commercial lawn care professionals understand that new sod is going to have more specialized needs, whereas well-established turf will not be quite as demanding. We also recognize that different varieties of grass have different tolerances and requirements when it comes to soil nutrients and proper hydration.
Your Local U.S. Lawns Knows What’s Best for Your Grass
Your local U.S. Lawns experts know that warm season grass varieties like Bahia grass and Bermuda grass are both drought resistant and capable of growing on all types of soils. We also know that overseeding (spreading grass seed over an existing lawn) cool season grasses like Kentucky bluegrass, Tall Fescue, and Perennial Ryegrass in the autumn is a must to keep them growing thick and healthy.
When it comes to your turf, our expertise extends even further, too. You can count on us to determine what kind of fertilization and irrigation programs work best for every variety of grass as well as with the different growth stages — whether you’re seeding a new lawn, reseeding an aging lawn, or simply nourishing turf that is healthy and established.
The Healthiest Landscapes Come from the Best Dirt
It’s also important to realize that healthy dirt is the very foundation your landscape depends on to grow and thrive. You already know your soil requires the proper food and hydration, but if the ground is too hardly compacted, grass and plant roots stay closer to the surface and become weakened. The best way to prevent weak root systems is to properly aerate your turf. Aeration is the practice of putting small holes in the soil throughout the entire lawn, making it easier for water, nutrients, and air to penetrate grass roots so they’ll grow deep and strong.
Another seldom noticed element that can compromise lawn health is heavy thatch. Thatch is really nothing more than a loose layer of organic matter made up of dead grass pieces, stems, and roots that build up between the green growth and the soil. When the thatch becomes too thick, it can be suffocating to your greenery and even worse, it provides a welcoming environment for unwanted pests that can be deadly to your turf.
Your property’s turf type may depend on routine aeration and dethatching, which is another reason you need a responsive commercial lawn care company like U.S. Lawns, that will be there whenever you need us, treating your turf like it’s our lawn.

It’s Vital to Plant Health to Control Weeds, Fungal Diseases, and Pests
Controlling weeds is important from an aesthetic standpoint, but weeds can also create a health hazard to your plant life as well as your customers, visitors, and tenants. It’s also critical to stay ahead of fungal diseases. Warm season grasses are commonly affected by diseases such as Dollar Spot, Brown Patch, Dog Spot, and even circular formations of mushrooms called Fairy Rings; cool season grasses are also threatened by Red Thread, in addition to most of the diseases that affect the warm season grasses.
As mentioned, pests like aphids, grasshoppers, ants, termites, slugs, weevils, grubs, and even moles and other rodents thrive in thick thatch, dead leaves, and other debris. This is another reason aeration, dethatching, and debris removal are all such important aspects of your landscape maintenance routine.
Now although U.S. Lawns consistently performs these basic maintenance services to prevent pests and disease from taking over your landscape, there are occasions when stronger action is necessary for effective pest control and/or treatments for disease control.
