Why We Are The Best Choice for Lawn Care in Long Island!!!
You can be sure our knowledgeable technicians will recommend the best treatment plan for you. Our deep understanding of Long Island’s natural soil conditions, as well as horticulture in general is the key to our success. That is why we obtain far superior results than those of our competitors.
Our Lawn Care Services offer solutions for a vast array of different soil conditions, which means not every lawn should be, or ever is, cared for the same way. We customize our services to meet the needs of your specific landscape. This includes the type of grass you have, the location of your home on the Island (ie. is your home near water, on a hill, etc. all of which determines the type of soil you have and how far down ground water is from the surface).
Why Soil Types of Long Island Matter For You.
Do you know what kind of soil you have in your yard? Is it the same throughout? For instance, the most common soil type of Suffolk County is the Haven Loam. The surface soil of Haven Loam consists of deep, well drained medium textured soil that formed in a loamy or silted mantle over stratified coarse and sandy gravel. Haven Soils have high to moderate available moisture capacity. The response of lime and lawn fertilizer is good. Internal drainage is also very good.
The most common soil type of Nassau County is the Hempstead plain known as the Hempstead loam. The surface soil of Hempstead loam soil is a brown/black loam containing a small amount of sandy debris and white quartz gravel. The subsoil is a heavy yellow to reddish-yellow silt that is somewhat gravely. Because of its sandy and gravely subsoil it is well draining. However its main deficiency is lack of depth, which prevents the development of downward root systems.
So what does this mean for your lawn? When we come and do an evaluation we determine the soil type, type of grass, and note any particular problems you have experienced with particular bugs or issues of growth, disease, etc. With all of this knowledge we then develop a customized plan to service your lawn, creating and maintaining a beautiful landscape to surround your home.
