A Residential Lawn Care Program to Protect Water Quality.
A Master Gardener volunteer will come to your home to collect a lawn soil sample and measure your total lawn area. Once we receive the results of your soil analysis, we will formulate a Nutrient Management Plan that will tell you the right kind of fertilizer to apply to your lawn at the right rate and at the right time. Lawn aeration combined with proper maintenance strategies will help correct weed and disease issues, improving the health and appearance of your lawn.
