Insect Control

$55 average cost

This treatment is designed to control both surface and subsurface turf damaging insects that feed on the blades and roots of your lawn in the Colorado Springs and Tri Lakes landscapes. Different varieties of grass are susceptible to different insects. Control is applied selectively and preventatively prior to or when the insects reach turf damaging levels. We follow all IPM (Integrated Pest Management) guidelines. Even though you notice insects, your lawn may not necessarily need treatment. If the insects are not at a level that could possibly damage your lawn, then the best option is to monitor your property. Call our office and we can stop by and take a look at your lawn to see what needs to be addressed. Spider mites and Banks grass mites are the two most common insects we treat. This picture illustrates common mite damage.

Disease Control

$78 average cost

Fungicides may be required when certain weather conditions, soil conditions and cultural practices favor the development of damaging fungi. The two most common lawn diseases we deal with are Necrotic Ring Spot (Picture) and Ascochyta Leaf Blight. Some diseases will take longer periods of time to control depending upon the severity of damage and type of disease. Some require only one application a year while others require three applications a year.

$45 average cost

Aeartion is strongly recommended each year because of our compacted soils in the Colorado Springs and Tri Lakes area. This process creates channels in your lawn that allow air, moisture and nutrients to enter the soil and promote plant growth. The "plugs" that are left on your lawn are another valuable source. The plugs contain microorganisms that feed upon and help reduce your lawn's thatch layer.

Seeding with Aeration

$65 average cost

Seeding combined with aeration is recommended to fill in bare areas or to thicken the density of your lawn. Even if you have a thick, weed free lawn, it's important to overseed every few years. Your lawn is just like any other plant in your landscape. Once it starts to decline from age, you will start to see other issues such as disease and insect problems more prominent. By seeding you reestablish a healthier environment. The aeration holes create a "Greenhouse" effect. The seeds fall into the holes and are a perfect environment for the new seed to germinate.

Vegetation Control

$145 average cost

We apply both pre emergents and post emergents to control seeds from germinating, and established weeds and grass from spreading. This treatment is applied to non turf areas such as flower beds, mulch beds, rock beds and cracks in your driveway. These products will not harm existing plants when applied by a licensed professional. We guarantee this application for 120 days. If any weeds or grass return in that time frame, we will return and retreat those areas at no charge. After the 120 day grace period, we charge for a spot treatment which normally runs around $45.00.

Wetting Agents

$98 average cost

The majority of our soils in Colorado Springs and the Tri Lakes area are hydrophobic ( water repelling). These soils have a water repelling organic coating that has formed on the soil particles. The only option is to reverse the soil particles to become Hydrophilic ( water loving). Wetting agents reverse the soil particles so when you do water the treated areas, your lawn soaks up to three times the moisture. This means a lower water bill and a healthier lawn.

Humates / Humic Acid

$55.00 average cost

Success in our landscapes comes down to one very important aspect, Soil!

A plants ability not only to survive but thrive comes down to moisture, nutrition and environment. In our Colorado Springs lawns we have not been blessed with the best of soils. Our soils tend to be either clay or sand, alkali and low organic matter, thus allowing little moisture and nutrient holding capacity and very poor nutrient uptake.

There is one product that drastically helps correct most of the shortcomings of our native soils. Humates / Humic Acid is one of the answers that we can apply during these rough growing / drought conditions. Here are just a few advantages of Humates / Humic Acid.

  • Adding Organic Matter to the Soil
  • Increased Root Strength and Nutrient Uptake
  • Better Fertilization Retention
  • Reduced Water Usage by Holding Moisture in the Soil
  • Increased Thatch Breakdown
  • Increased Seed Germination
  • Breaking up of Tight Clay Soils
  • Improves Soil Structure, Clay Soils become Looser
  • Sandy Soils Show improved Water Retention
  • Improves Soil PH Reduces Acidity
  • No Increased Frequency of Mowing
  • Makes your Plant Less Susceptible to Stress
