Fixing a dead lawn throughout the seasons is our specialty
The end of summer or the beginning of fall is typically the time that property owners have their lawns repaired. The soil temperatures are high during these times of year, so seed germination can happen much quicker, and the cooler, damper temperatures also help the process. Planting new grass seed in the late summer or early fall also helps the grass to establish itself before it stops growing for the year. This brief period of establishment will help the grass develop its root system so it will have a jump on weeds once the spring comes.
Our team will evaluate your lawn to determine the best way to address the problem. In some instances, the lawn may be dormant and not dead. One way to determine whether the lawn is dormant or dead is by tugging on the grass plants themselves. If the grass comes out easily, then it is likely dead. If there is some resistance while pulling the grass, then it is likely dormant as the roots are still alive and working.
There are a variety of reasons why your lawn may have died: summer heat, drought, insects, pests, or fungi are all possible. We can help diagnose the issue for you and begin the process of rejuvenating your lawn and landscape. Contact us today for a free quote: 508-477-4814.
Once we have determined the cause of your dead lawn, we start remedying the situation by clearing any unnecessary debris or matted turf from your lawn. We then loosen the soil, and may use some compost, or a similar organic material, to help the health of poor soil. Loosening the soil will help the grass seeds enter the ground more easily.
The grass seed we select for your lawn is designed to work the best with the environmental conditions present. We gently tamp the seeds into the soil once they are spread. Fertilizer is then applied to properly feed the seeds and ensure stronger, faster, and healthier growth. The process is capped by mulching and watering the area.
