Senske Fertilizer.jpgEven in a lush climate such as Tacoma, the soil can be depleted of essential nutrients through over saturation, and competition from surrounding plants. Most gardeners understand that applying fertilizer to their yard is beneficial, however there are countless varieties of fertilizers available, and it can be a challenge to understand which one is best for your specific soil. Give yourself a break and let the experts at Washington Tree & Lawn Care determine what is best for your yard. 

Weed Control

boise-weed-control.jpgOther than the simple fact that weeds detract from the aesthetics of your lawn, they also deplete the nutrients from the soil and from the desirable plants in your yard. Because of this it is important to attempt to control them, however, anyone that has tried to remove weeds knows that they don't go down without a fight. We have custom weed control programs that guarantee approximately 85-95% control of the weeds in your landscape. 

Lime Application

shutterstock_147716753.jpgAs organic matter and minerals break down within the soil they cause the soil to become acidic. If soil becomes too acidic then plants begin to suffer as root access to water and nutrients becomes restricted. To combat against acidic soil it is recommended to spread a lime application which helps to neutralize the soil and raise the pH level. Let our experts test your lawns pH level and make recommendations based on what they find.  

Core Aeration

Tacoma-lawn-aeration.jpgCore aeration is the process used to control thatch. Thatch is the layer of grass, debris, and roots found between the grass and soil that is in a decaying state. If this layer becomes too thick then it can cause lawn disease, and become overrun with weeds and grass eating bugs. Core aeration machines can be used to remove chunks of thatch and soil, thus creating breathing holes in the soil.

Wetting Agents

shutterstock_211475272.jpgWetting agent applications are used to help allow water to penetrate the soil during hydrophobic conditions. These conditions are caused by the waxy coating that can develop on grass and soil. If left untreated the wax will repel water, which then dries out the soil and kills the plants.  




Crane Fly Control

shutterstock_338539307.jpgThe larvae of crane flies can cause widespread damage to the roots and turf of your yard,  To prevent this damage it is important to apply insecticide in the fall, before the larvae has time to mature and feed on the lawn. Because crane flies can cause major damage, it is recommended to take preventative measures now in the effort to save you time and money in the long run. 

Moss Control

shutterstock_263044526.jpgThe problem with moss is that it's a symptom of bigger issues, such as too much thatch, too much shade, poor drainage, and/or acidic soil. The best way to control moss is to correct the symptoms that are favoring the growth of it. Let our experts analyse and determine what steps are needed to eliminate your moss issues.  Call us today at ​(253) 200-0697 or request a free estimate for yard care now
