There is a lot to consider when deciding what you need for your lawn when you call us we will provide you with a free quote with advice on services that will help your lawn be happy and healthy. Our budget billing option gives our clients the option to pay one monthly price to make budgeting easier. We do over paying as services are rendered and the option to pay up front for the season which comes along with a 10% discount. APL wants to make sure that we have an array of options that fit your needs as every yard and every customer is unique.
Power Rake The benefit of this service is to get all the dead out of your lawn this is where fungus and insects like to feed on and can cause issues to your grass or even kill the grass if left unattended we recommend this service be done on a yearly basis.
Aeration When you have your lawn aerated this will de compact the ground allowing nutrients and water to reach the root base making for a much thicker and healthier lawn. If you have also signed up for a power rake we will aerate first and then power rake to break the cores down and back into the soil. This service is recommended twice a year spring and fall although once a year is ok as well for promoting nice turf.
Sprinkler Start Up / Winterization We will have our certified irrigation tech come out and turn on the water and adjust all the sprinkler heads to make sure that the water is not being wasted on sidewalks and spraying your house. The timer will be set based off the current season needs at the time of turn on. If there are any issues in the system we will bring them to your attention so that they can be fixed promptly. When it comes time to have the system shut down for the season our irrigation tech will come back out and properly shut down the watering system blow out the lines and turn off the timer. We back this up if you have a freeze break in the spring it is free to have it fixed. It is important to have your system maintained it is like changing your oil so that your engine does break down and cost you a ton of money. Having your sprinkler system taken care of can save you big money on repairs.
Weekly Mowing There is an art to mowing a lawn to keep it standing up and looking nice our crews make sure to sharpen the mower blades a few times a week to make sure when they are at your property the grass is being cut not torn. Mowing weekly is highly recommended as you do not want to remove more then 1/3 of the grass blade on each mowing as it can stress the turf. For most Colorado turf grass the cutting height needs to be between 2.5” and 3” in height this also helps retain the water from evaporation. Once crews are done mowing the sidewalks are blown off and gates are shut.
Fertilizer/ Weed Control Fertilizing is an important method to keeping the grass healthy feeding the grass in the early spring and then every 6 weeks after that or 5 times per season will show you a nice improvement to the grass. This will also help keep the grass nice and strong so that grubs and fungus have a much harder time affecting the area. Our license techs will be able to fertilize and take care of any weeds in the grass in one application giving you a hassle free result. Our team selects fertilizers based off the season and the turf needs to ensure the proper nutrients are being applied.
Grub & Insect Control These little critters can do some serious damage to the lawn all the above practices are the environmentally friendly way of controlling issues like this from forming which is best practice in protecting the environment. However there does come a time when responsible pesticide application is the only means of controlling the insect. At this point we will again send out the licensed tech and evaluate the turf issues and select the proper method of pesticide application. Our Spray Techs are licensed by the Department of Agriculture or under the supervision of a licensed manager.
Shrub Trimming Shrubs and hedges need to be trimmed to promote healthy growth most shrubs will need to be trimmed in the fall it is best if the plant has had a frost as it is dormant and cutting the shrubs back at that time of year is the most beneficial. Some need to be trimmed way back and others need to have just a haircut we work very hard to educate our crews on how to trim different plants so that your landscaping gets the best care possible. Most Hedges have to be trimmed several times in a season to keep the manicured appearance and to promote healthy growth this is done on an as needed basis depending on the growth rate.
Fall Clean Up Oh yes the leaves that will just not stop falling filling up the gutters and making a mess out of the yard. Our fall Service includes blowing out the gutters and cleaning up the yard once the leafs have fallen this normally happens after a good hard freeze. It is important to get the leafs picked up as this can add to the buildup of thatch in the lawn and cause issues with disease and insects. Our crews work at this most of the winter to make sure we can get to everyone and have their yard in good shape come spring.
