Earth-Friendly Lawn Care in Alexandria, Arlington, Springfield, VA and surrounding areas

By choosing the Kingstowne Earth-Friendly Lawn Care Program, you don’t have to sacrifice good results. We work with an accomplished Agronomist and Turf Scientist to ensure that our methods are both earth-friendly and effective.

Instead of just spraying the whole lawn, as many lawn care companies do in order to move on quickly, we take our time to spot treat with four treatments of weed control. We also apply a “pollinator safe” grub control treatment, perform soil testing, and apply limestone based upon soil test results. In addition, our lawn care program includes five fertilizer treatments applied throughout the growing season to give your lawn the nutrients it needs to thrive.

Aeration and Overseeding: The Secret to a Great Lawn

In addition to choosing lawn care treatments which will improve your lawn’s color and vitality, choosing professional aeration and overseeding will also help to thicken your lawn and fill in any bare spots.

Aeration and overseeding are actually two of the most valuable services you can perform for you lawn. With the use of a professional core aerator, we perforate the soil which allows more water, oxygen, and nutrients to penetrate down to your turf’s root zone, where they are needed most. Combined with overseeding, this will help you to grow a thick and healthy lawn. This is a service that we recommend be performed in the fall, when soil conditions are ideal for your grass seed to germinate. This will give your new lawn the best possible start.

Power Seeding:  When overseeding is simply not enough, we offer power seeding, which is a process of cutting rows into the soil and planting our high quality seed. Power seeding is an extremely effective method of filling in bare spots, and turning a spotty lawn into a lush, green carpet.

Topdressing:  One of the reasons natural, professional sports turf looks so great is because of a valuable improvement, topdressing. This involves adding a thin layer of compost and soil to your lawn immediately after an aeration, to improve soil conditions that lead to a more resilient lawn.
