Soil is often more complicated than it looks. Soil testing reveals the most effective and environmentally friendly ways to create a healthy and sustainable lawn.
A soil test consists of correctly obtaining a soil sample, sending it to a Maryland approved lab, and receiving a detailed analysis of its makeup. It detects pH and nutrient levels, and pinpoints nutrient deficiencies.
We apply the appropriate types of organic, organic-based, and synthetic fertilizers depending on your lawn’s unique needs, weather conditions, and Maryland Nutrient Management Law in order to protect the environment and promote:
- Optimal growth
- A strong root system
- Disease resistance
- Turf density
Lawn aeration helps air, water, grass seed, and fertilizer get incorporated into the soil. Aerating your lawn provides numerous benefits, such as:
- Helping your lawn breathe better
- Rejuvenating and strengthening your lawn
- Breaking up the thatch and reducing soil compaction naturally
- Allowing nutrients to penetrate the soil and stimulating root growth
- Enhancing turf density

Thatch, the layer of undecomposed organic matter just above the soil, can become a problem if it grows too thick. Excessive thatch creates an environment favorable for turf-destroying insects and disease, keeps water from getting to the roots of your grass, and reduces your lawn’s response to fertilizers. A thatch analysis will provide insight on the health of your lawn and help us determine the next step.
Does your lawn have more weeds than grass? Does it have sink holes and uneven areas? Compacted soil and drainage problems? Any or all of these conditions are good reasons to renovate your lawn.
