Grass is Thin

  • Poor Fertility
    The lawn is not being fertilized properly or sufficiently.
  • Drought Issues
    The lawn is not receiving the right amount of water at the right time.
  • Shade Problems
    Sometimes shade can be a problem for grass. Maybe there is a better type of grass seed we can use, or maybe we have to come up with a totally different solution. Sometimes, it is just a matter of adjusting the way we treat the lawn.
  • Traffic
    Traffic on the lawn from pets and/or people can wreak havoc on grass. There are things that can be done to fix it.
  • Disease
    There are several types of lawn disease. Many times they appear in ring-shaped formations.
  • Insects
    Identification and control of damaging insects on lawns can be difficult unless you know what to look for and where to look. Lawn damaging insects can be classified into two distinct types. This helps make identification and control easier. These insect types are root feeders and blade feeders.

Weeds / Neighbors Weeds

  • Lack of Weed Control
    There are two types of plants that we deal with at Heritage Lawns. They are turf grasses (or grasses) and broadleaf plants. To determine the differences is not too difficult if we simply look at the veins on the leaves of each type. Grasses typically have parallel veins running the length of the leaf, as in corn leaves and grass blades. Broadleaf plants have “net like” veins such as dandelions and poison ivy leaves.
  • Thin Grass
    When grass is not thick enough, it cannot naturally inhibit weed growth.

Sprinkler Repair

  • Lack of Weed Control
    No matter if it is a broken valve, broken head, broken line, or a head simply needs to be adjusted to spray the correct direction, our Irrigation Maintenance Specialist can help you through it.
