Aeration| Mowing | Power Raking At Intermountain Lawns we specialize in maintaining beautiful lawns in Colorado.Lawn aerationis a key service in maintaining ahealthy lawn. Why is lawn aeration important? OurColorado soilhas a lot of sand & clay. These materials compact very easily, especially as you mow your lawn, children and dogs play, and just good old fashioned gravity. Core aeration or lawn aeration is the process of poking deep holes in your lawn and removing small soil and thatch plugs using an aeration machine that has several rows of hollow spikes. Just like any plant,grass roots cannot thrivein tight compacted soil; they need air, water, nutrients, androom to grow. By pulling out these small soil plugs from the lawn you've de-compacted the soil allowing the air, water, and nutrients to easily reach the roots. Aeration holes in your lawn allow room so your grass roots will become thicker, deeper,stronger, and more stress resistant. Aeration also improves tolerance for heat and drought stress, and enhances thatch breakdown. Best of all aeration willsave you money on your water bill! By loosening up the soil aeration helpsreduce water run-off by allowing the water to absorb quicker.
Aeration | Mowing | Power Raking At Intermountain Lawns we are dedicated to quality in our workmanship. Proper maintenance is the key to keeping your yard healthy and beautiful. Our Weekly or Every 2 Week mowing and trimming service will keep your lawn looking great while you enjoy more time with your family & loved-ones without worrying about your yard. Our Mowing Service includes trimming around trees, sidewalks, and fences; anything that borders inside the lawn. Anything that borders outside the lawn such as rock or mulch areas we don't like to trim to avoid any debris being picked up by the trimmer and causing damage. For an additional charge, we can spray rock and mulch areas with weed & grass killer to permanently keep those areas looking clean. We cut at a recommended 3" -4" height, but every lawn and customer is different. We keep records of the height you want your lawn cut and tailor our services to fit your needs. We also recommend dropping or mulching the clippings back into the lawn to recycle them, especially if you're on a weekly schedule and cutting about 1/3 of an inch off the top. The clippings release nitrogen back into your lawn which acts as natural fertilizer, but some prefer the clippings to be bagged. So in addition to mowing & trimming, if bagging is preferred, our services also includes bagging the clippings and haulingthem away. Finally we blow any excess of sidewalks & driveways like we weren't even there! Simple, easy, inexpensive, and convenient for you.Just add water... and leave the rest to us!
Aeration| Mowing| Power Raking
At Intermountain Lawns we want to save you time to concentrate on more important things. Power Raking or de-thatching a lawn is the process of raking dead grass and thatch out of your lawn. Power Raking is not as important as Lawn Aeration for some lawns. Lawn Aeration itself will help with thatch if the thatch level is a ½ inch or less. Power Raking is not for every lawn, but depending on the lawn it could be essential. If your yard has a spongy / cushiony feel to it where water just doesn't want to penetrate the surface, has necrotic ring spots, or has areas where you can see good green grass trying to poke through all the brown, your yard could be carrying excess thatch and may need a Power Rake. A lighter or shallower Power Raking is recommended. Power Raking too deep can be damaging to the lawn making longer recovery time, but Power Raking done properly will remove matted turf and will promote a great Spring green-up by letting air move to the root zone and warm the turf. Power Raking is a great idea if you’re going to over-seed, (out with the old and in with the new). Power Raking also allows for deeper Lawn Aeration holes. By removing a thick thatch layer the aeration machine has less material to go through to get to the soil. When completed you will see all the buried thatch that has been brought to the surface. We then hand rake all the dead grass, bag it up, and then leave the bags neatly on the side of your house so you can put them out with your trash. The process usually takes anywhere from an hour to two hours, in which raking thatch by hand with a metal rake may take someone several weekends!
