Over Seeding

  • This process is used to renovate existing bare or weak lawns, without total reconstruction of a new lawn.
  • A very economical way to revitalize an existing lawn.
  • The best time to do is in the spring or early autumn.

Core Aeration

  • Special machine used to remove plugs of soil, and deposit on lawn.
  • The holes from the aeration promote deep root growth of the grass to overcome times of stress in the mid summer heat.
  • As soil from plugs breakdown, microorganisms from the soil break down the thatch in the lawn.
  • Rainwater flows into the holes and the grass roots grow to the bottom of the hole to the water.
  • Best time to do is in the early spring or late autumn.

Landscape Dethatching

  • Special machine used to deeply rake turf areas to remove dead and undecomposed organic matter build up. The purpose is to promote the grass plant to root in the soil and not in the organic matter which makes it more susceptible to extreme environmental conditions. A half inch of thatch is actually beneficial for your turf.
  • The best time to dethatch is in early spring.

Lawn Mowing

  • From a quarter acre to twenty acres, Turf Heads use specialized mowers with 18” decks to 36” decks to cut beautiful well maintained turf area.
  • Turf is normally cut at a height of 3” during the normal growing season with the last cut in autumn done at 2” to prepare the turf for winter. Mower height can be raised for certain drought conditions, or lowered for specific purpose, or appearance.
