Caring for your yard before, during and after the winter months

We know – the last thing you want to hear about right now is the cold weather months that are (quickly) approaching.

Believe it or not, now is the best time of the year to start thinking about all of your outdoor projects. Yup, you heard us. The “off season” is actually a great time to get stuff done – or to at least start planning for it.

Preparing for winter

They say to dress for the job you want – and we can apply that mentality here, too. Giving your beautiful lawn the best chance of remaining a “beautiful lawn” starts by making sure you’re prepared for the winter months. 

First, we can ensure that you’re set up for success with our drainage solutions. This way, all of the TLC you’ve put into your yard this summer doesn’t go to waste. Rain and snow can heavily impact your outdoor landscape, especially given that flooding can be an ongoing issue in the Chicagoland area. If your gutter system isn’t set up properly, this can cause damage to your lawn and gardens. We offer systems that can accommodate proper drainage to your property so that even in the winter months, your lawn is being taken care of.

Aaaaand, winter is here, folks.

Picture this: You just got home from a long day of work, you’re cooking dinner and spending time with the family when you realize that it’s been snowing for several hours now and it’s really starting to pile up. What’s the last thing you want to do? Probably shovel.

Your time is important to you, we understand that. We offer our snow and ice removal services for commercial and HOA properties. As you know, accumulating snow and leaving it for too long can be dangerous. With the unpredictable climate here in Chicago, we want you to know that our services are available. Even on those days during the winter when we go to sleep after a beautiful, sunny 35-degree day and wake up with 3 inches of snow on the streets, our team is always ready for the unexpected.

When spring has sprung

After the winter months, there will be a day when you can once again see your lawn. This can be a happy day, or a day where you’re…not so happy.

You may notice some areas of your lawn that have been severely damaged once all of the snow and ice has melted away. More often than not, you’ll see this along your driveways, walkways or places you designate for parking. We’re here to help repair your lawn and get it back to the place it was before winter hit.

A few ways we can help:

  1. Grub control
    We offer applications in the early season to prevent grubs from arising. When grub has already made an impact on the lawn, our curative program rids the grub from your existing turf.
  2. Aeration
    We provide a service to bring oxygen, water, and nutrients into your soil structure during the spring season when your turf is getting out of its dormancy. With an aeration to your turf you can ensure a healthier root structure. Depending on your specific turf needs (which our team will gladly help determine) this same application can be applied in the fall.
  3. Our 6-step fertilization program
    Everyone loves the look of a healthier, more lush lawn. We offer a 6-round program, using the highest quality materials, to help put the green back into your scenery. The 6 rounds cover all of the necessary bases, from crab grass control, to fertilizer and weed control, all to make sure that your lawn stays lush for years to come. Our certified technicians are there to help make suggestions to provide the best quality results.

Whether you’re a planner and want to get started today on making sure you’ve got your landscaping and lawncare game plan ready to go before the winter months or if you’re more a “wait and see” type of person and will deal with it once it happens, we’ve got your back.
