Our Services

Core Aeration

Our deep core aeration in the Fall assures excellent seed germination and controls run-off fertilizers.


We reseed your lawn in the Fall with the finest blend of Virginia/Maryland certified seed.


We apply dry-granular fertilizer throughout the year to assure a thick, green lawn.


An important part of our program to correct soil acidity with additional nutrients.

Crabgrass Control

We apply two applications of dry-granular, pre-emergent crabgrass control to stop crabgrass before it stars in the spring.


Dandelions, broadleaf, clover, chickweed, plantain, and all other common weeds will be controlled on each service visit.

Grub & Insects

Japanese beetle grubs, sod chinchbugs, sod webworms and many other damaging insects are controlled as needed throughout the year.

Additional Services

Additional services are services that are outside of our program but are services that we provide.

Power De-thatching
To understand why you might need to de-thatch your lawn its first  important to know what Thatch is. Thatch is the mat of dead grass and  other organic materials between the green tips of your grass and the  soil surface – is harmful to your lawn when it reaches a thickness of  one half inch of more. Drought, disease, insects, failure to remove lawn clippings, and other factors can cause this build-up. Leaving this thatch barrier will impair new growth by blocking fertilizer, water, and other nutrients to the root system. For a healthy lawn, you must  remove thatch before seeding.  Hand raking is simply not vigorous enough to remove all the thatch in your lawn. A power de-thatcher with revolving blades of knives is the best equipment. National Turf Service offers the best available equipment for quick, thorough removal of  thatch.
Does your lawn suffer from sparse patchy growths, weeds, or barren  areas? Our Sodding program might be for you. Prime times for sodding are in the spring and fall. We will take up any imperfections in a concentrated patch. We will rake in fresh topsoil to enrich the  affected area and level the area then apply the sod while tightening the seams leaving a beautiful lawn.
Our topsoil service is something we provide for patching bare spots, filling holes, and dents in the lawn that might retain water causing  unsightly puddles on your lawn. Have you had a tree removed? This would be a great time to add some topsoil to the affected area thus  repairing imperfections in the areas effected.  Our topsoil service also include seeding and aeration to ensure lawn growth in these trouble  areas.
Irrigation System Maintenance (Turn On and Winterizations)
In the spring, we re-pressurize your system and checking for damages to the supply pipes. We will also adjust heads to ensure proper  irrigation maximizing the surface area your sprinklers will cover. We will also repair and maintain your irrigation system. In the fall, we  winterize the system draining the system to prevent any excess water from freezing and expanding potentially cracking and damaging your supply pipes which will lead to costly repairs in the spring.

Our Programs

Usually applied January – March. Lime corrects acidity and toxicity, thereby promoting a better soil in which to maintain good, healthy grass.


Completed in March – April, A dry, balanced fertilizer is applied to stimulate growth and development for the new season. During this period grass devolops new roots. rhizomes and tillers thus increasing the density of your lawn. A pre-emergent crabgrass control is also applied at this time as well as weed control.

This service is done later in the spring (May – June). A second application of dry balanced fertilizer, high in slow-release nitrogen to keep feeding the lawn throughout the summer. Weeds are controlled for the 2nd time this growing season and a second crab-grass, pre-emergent is applied where necessary.

June – July – This is the time when weed are most vigorous. An inspection of the lawn is made and a 2nd weed application is applied at this time. Insect control is applied to combat grubs, chinch-bugs and sod webworms throughout the summer.

August – October is the best time to reseed and rebuild. We use top quality certified seed especially formulated for this area. A heavy application of fertilizer is applied in anticipation of cooler temperatures. We also aerate your lawn making hundreds of small holes so fertilizer can get to the roots. Aeration also improves the carbon dioxide and oxygen in the soil needed for proper root development. It is essential the you water the seed 20 straight days for 30 – 45 minutes to maximize germination.

This is an ideal time for a very liberal application of winter dormant fertilizer that helps your lawn green up faster in the spring.
