Bare Spots

Bare spots don't discriminate, with even the best-maintained lawns suffering from it.

Brown Spots

Brown spots can be a frustrating site to discover in your yard and often have more than one cause. The first step to treating your yard is identifying what exactly is causing patchiness in your yard. Below are a few common causes for brown spot:

Crabgrass is a highly-germinating, warm-season annual that has the power to take over your entire yard. A single crabgrass plant can produce up to 150,000 seeds! These seeds not only germinate in the spring but can also remain dormant and germinate in the future years. 


Even when you give your lawn excellent care, the grass can still become infected with various lawn diseases that can lead to dead or discolored areas. Identify what is plaguing your yard with this guide to different lawn diseases!


Fertilization, when done regularly and after aeration, can transform the thickness and color of your yard. Over the course of the year, your yard can suffer from a variety of pests and diseases that can suck the nutrients out of your grass, leaving it dull and dingy.

Fire Ants

First introduced to the United States in the 1920s, fire ants are characterized by their copper color and painful sting. Although commonly found inhabiting a sandy looking mound in your backyard, fire ants are also drawn into the comfort of your home by sugary and fatty foods. Regardless of whether you see them indoors or out, they are a threat to the safety of your loved ones.


Grubs are the tiny, white larvae of different Scarab beetles such as Japanese beetles and June 'bugs' beetles. Although small, grubs can create a cyclical upturn of your yard's health in a matter of months. These pests bury themselves deep within your soil's surface and feed on grass and organic matter, resulting in sections of your yard turning brown, dying, or completely missing.

Lawn Care

Why use an eco-friendly lawn care company? Eco-friendly lawn care is often misunderstood as being lesser than or not as efficient.

In their natural habitat, moles are harmless creatures, but when they creep into your yard, you could be left with holes everywhere! To identify if you have a mole infestation, look at your soil.

Not only are mosquitoes known for disrupting outdoor activities, but they are also vectors for dangerous diseases. Drawn to standing water and capable of laying up to 3,000 eggs in a lifetime, it’s no wonder that mosquitoes are one of the top nuisance pests in the US!


Nutsedge, also known as nutgrass, is a weed commonly found in lawns during the summer. These weeds stand taller than the grass in your lawn and are notoriously hard to get rid of given their immersive root systems. Nutsedge is a perennial sedge, meaning it is a grass-like plant that will live for at least two years and will come back year after year, This plant can be hard to control due to the inability of most weed killers to effectively reduce the population and their ability to withstand drought.

Perimeter Pests

Perimeter pest control is vital to keeping the bugs out and not in your home. By spraying around your home, an exterior bug barrier is created, making the inside of your home unattractive to pests such as ticks, cockroaches, spiders, stink bugs, beetles, boxelder bugs, and more!


While most pests don't pose a direct threat to our health, they can be quite a nuisance and even compromise the integrity of structures. Lawn pests have the potential to kill grass, destroy trees, and even draw animals into your yard, while indoor pests can contaminate food and cause an increase in allergens. Below is a list of pest to keep your eye out for and what risks they pose:

Shaded Lawn

Most grasses do best when grown in full, direct sunlight. However, sometimes that isn't always attainable due to shading from trees and shrubs. By taking the following steps you can improve growing conditions, lesson grass stress, and improve grass health:


Closely related to spiders, ticks also belong to the arachnid group. Relying on the blood of their hosts, ticks are likely to move from one mammal to another in order to survive. Due to their transient behavior, these pests are vectors of a number of diseases, including Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and Lyme disease.

Tree & Shrub

Just as your lawn can become diseased, so can your trees and shrubs. Check out this guide below on common diseases and insects that can harm your landscaping.


Weeds are an unwelcome sight for any homeowner. As they spread, they are also competing for the same sunlight and nutrients that your grass needs causing your lawn to become stressed. The overpowering, nutrient-depleting nature of weeds is what makes them an enemy of any lawn. We prevent the initial growth of weeds with pre-emergent treatments and manage existing problems with targeted, customized control.
