The poet Wordsworth lovingly spoke of “the hour of splendor in the grass, glory in the flower.” But such an idyllic setting often requires diligent yard maintenance. This is where Spring-Green Lawn Care’s safe and easy annual lime treatments come in.

Studies show that our region’s lawns are prone to “acid conditions, common west of the Cascades because of historical extensive forest cover and rainfall leaching our soils.”

Applying lime helps reduce soil acidity (raises soil pH). The fertilizer we apply becomes more available to your grass, thatch build-up is reduced and root development of your grass is enhance. Balancing the overall pH reduces the number of weeds. Weeds prefer acidic soil, thanks to enhanced root development leading to denser growth of your thriving grass.

And a healthy, well-maintained yard is more than a summertime delight. Looking to sell your home in the near future? “More than likely, the last place that anyone looks to increase their home’s value is to improve his or her lawn and landscape. However, a well-manicured lawn and landscape, according to some real estate agents, can raise your property’s value by over 5%. At those rates, improving your lawn and landscape is an easy way to improve your investment in your home.”

After a free landscape evaluation, owner Mike Bell and his Spring-Green team will provide you with a personalized assessment of your yard’s maintenance needs. These can then be incorporated into one of several Service Packages to meet your specific requirements. Call soon and lime treatment will be included for free in either the Preferred or Preferred-Plus Programs.

These packages include seasonal visits, evaluations, and treatments. Also available are services to tackle moss, crane flies, and root feeding of on-site trees.

With our wetter springs and overall warmer weather, ask Mike about perimeter pest control or flea and tick services too. When it comes to invading, biting bugs in your home, prevention is substantially easier and cheaper than remediation.
