April

April is the month of spring cleanup, irrigation startup, mowing, and fertilizing your lawn. Green & Black offers this entire scope of lawn care services to property owners, plus continued snow removal in case of prolonged snowfall.

If your yard is heavily compacted, spring aeration can also begin at this time. Aeration and dethatching services improve nutrient, fertilizer, water, and airflow, as well as root depth for your commercial property.

May

Fertilization should be at the forefront of your mind as you enter May and rapid spring growth begins to slow. Starting a morning watering routine may be especially helpful during this month. However, it’s important to avoid overwatering your lawn, as it can precipitate fungal growth.

Count on Green & Black for the following lawn cutting services and other lawn care maintenance efforts in May:

  • Mowing
  • Fertilizing
  • Spring cleanup
  • Irrigation startup
  • Excavation projects
  • Lawn renovation projects
  • Asphalt patching

June and July

June and July represent the core of summer and therefore call for lawn care and maintenance services such as heavy mowing and fertilizing, light excavation, and asphalt patching.

Green & Black will patch your parking lot and provide you with a full-service lawn care renovation plan where we begin fertilizing the soil, eradicating existing weeds, and analyzing the soil and lawn quality.

August

August can potentially be the month for pesticide applications.

August warrants the continuation of prior commitments such as light mowing, excavation projects, and fertilizing efforts. It can potentially be the month for pesticide applications and represents the ideal time to begin brush-cutting perimeters and meadows that are not included in your weekly mowing schedule.

September

September is ideal for fertilizing, over-seeding, and fall aeration. This is also the best month to renovate cool-season grasses like bluegrass, fescue, and ryegrasses.

September spells increased moisture, cooler temperatures, and minimal weed pressure, making conditions ideal. Fertilizing, over-seeding, and aerating your lawn are the best practices when you want to encourage healthy green grass.

Green & Black offers light mowing, fertilizing, excavation services to encourage optimal lawn care this month.

October

Timing your lawn maintenance efforts appropriately year-round can yield healthy, green grass. Preparing your snow thrower for winter is crucial in October and November. Other equipment that may prove helpful during these months include debris loaders, leaf vacuums, and walk-behind leaf blowers. Focus on rapid pickup and removal of leaves to prevent leaf dropping from smothering company grass.

When late fall rolls around, you can also take steps such as:

  • Adjusting the setting on your lawnmower so that it’s a few inches shorter than it was during the summer.
  • Patching bare patches or thinning areas on your lawn with seed to restore your lawn’s thickness.

Green & Black offers fall cleanup services such as bush hogging and irrigation installation services for property owners during October to ensure your grass receives the hydration it needs to thrive.

November

November represents a time of transition from fall to winter, and Green & Black offers fall cleanup and snow removal services during this month as well. Removing any dead grass and debris is imperative during early and late fall to prepare your property for heavy snowfall.

December

In this month, we come full circle back to winter. December often hosts the first snowfall of the year, and it’s the time when most lawns go dormant.

Limiting foot traffic on your lawn is essential in the winter months, as walking on tender grass can potentially kill your grass by compressing the soil. Try not to store anything heavy on your grass, and try not to walk or park on it if you can. Following proper de-icing procedures is also crucial — look for ice-melting products specifically designed for lawns.

Green & Black provides snow removal services for commercial properties during the winter months and will take preventive measures to ensure your lawn stays green and vibrant come spring.
