How to turn a yard full of weeds into a flourishing lawn
It is important to understand from the start that patience is a virtue in landscaping. It will take some time for a yard overgrown with weeds to be turned into a healthy, thick lawn. Fortunately, that is why we offer routine maintenance throughout the growing season. This way we can address all issues and processes throughout the various stages of growth.
We start by learning what you want from your yard and analyzing how that will actually work with your property’s surroundings. Then we will move on to weeding the high traffic areas of your lawn. Our team, equipped with the right tools and the appropriate amount of crew members, can make quick work of a weedy yard.
The team moves on to aerating the lawn after the initial weeding phase. The process of aeration involves breaking up the soil so the grass will get the water, nutrients, and oxygen it needs to grow a strong root system. If soil becomes too compact, then the grass will be deprived of those essentials, leaving the yard more susceptible to weeds as the grass will start to slow its growth. Aeration is an important start to having a healthy lawn.

Some situations may involve the use of an herbicide, pesticide, or fungicide. Some of these may be used to target specific weeds while not harming your grass. This is particularly the case with crabgrass or broadleaf plants.
Once we have cleared the necessary weeds, we sow new grass seed. It is important to spread seeds out evenly throughout the area. Throwing too many seeds in one area can lead to excessive competition for the lawn’s nutrients and moisture.
Top-dressing the lawn with compost helps add vital nutrients. Mulch can be applied strategically to garden beds or certain areas of the lawn to keep weeds out more effectively, especially if the weeds grow aggressively. Fertilizer is another good option for providing the grass with the food it needs to grow and thrive.
