Lawn Fertilization

Probably the service that is likely to have the biggest impact on the health and color of your lawn is fertilization. It can be tough though to get lawn fertilization frequency and amounts right. Because turf care is all I do, you can be sure I will get it right. Depending on your grass type, soil quality, and your specific growing conditions, your lawn will have a unique set of fertilization needs. With lawn fertilization services from Huckaby Turf Care, your lawn will get all of the nutrients it needs to thrive. I have found that every lawn has its own, unique fertilization needs. Fortunately my years of experience makes it easy to recommend the proper lawn fertilization program for your Northwest Arkansas lawn. I specialize in fertilizing a wide range of grass species, including common turf types like Kentucky Bluegrass, Tall Fescue, Ryegrass, Fine Fescue, Zoyza and Bermuda. I’ll recommend a fertilization program that gives your lawn the right nutrients on the right schedule, ensuring lush, green growth.

Lime Treatment

The soil in many areas of Northwest Arkansas has an acid tendency. The level of soil acidity (measured in terms of pH) is a factor in how many nutrients are available for your lawn. Applying Lime to your lawn corrects the acidity level in your lawn (raises the pH) and gives you a thicker, greener lawn. There are four key benefits from a lime treatment. 1. The fertilizer we apply becomes more readily available to your grass. 2. Weeds grow best in acidic soils so I make it harder for them to grow in the first place. 3. The build-up of thatch is reduced by lowering the acidity level of your soil. 4. Root growth and development of your grass will be enhanced. I use a quality limestone specifically tailored for conditions here in Northwest Arkansas which will bring your soil’s acidity to levels to the optimine level for growing grass.

Lawn Weed Control

My lawn weed control program is one of our most popular lawn care services. In addition to eliminating common broadleaf weeds like dandelions and clover, I can also eliminate more hard to kill grassy weeds such as nutsedge and poa annua. Weed control from Huckaby Turf Care starts with an assessment of the weed issues threatening your lawn. I routinely deal with hundreds of different species of weeds, and the factors that contribute to weed infestations. Your lawn’s health, soil, and local growing conditions all factor into the analysis. I use this expertise and experience to create a custom lawn weed control treatment plan for your lawn, making sure your lawn is treated with the right amounts of the right materials. Grassy Weeds  These weeds thrive under the same conditions as your lawn’s grass. They include weeds like crabgrass, goose grass, and yellow foxtail. Broadleaf Weeds Broadleaf weeds are easier to treat, have wider leaves, and often flower. They include thistles, dandelions, wild violets, and clovers.
My program for lawn fertilization and weed control that works in one part of Northwest Arkansas may not be right for another. For instance Bella Vista tends to be more rocky and hilly where Fayetteville tends to be flatter with fewer rocky patches. That is why I always come to your home or business and do an analysis of your specific situation and location. In addition I know that different people have individual preferences for lawn care, that’s why I offer you a broad selection of choices in how your lawn maintenance program is set up.

Core Aeration

Core aeration is the process that mechanically removes plugs of soil and deposits them on the top of the soil surface. This is beneficial in several ways. The soil becomes less compact making it easier for grass roots to grow deep. This process helps get oxygen to where it needs to go and finally it creates the perfect time to seed or overseed because seed tends to fall into the holes. Overseeding at this time allows you to intoduce newer types of grass that may have higher resistance to disease and drought. The overseeding process thickens the lawn by placing new seed not only in areas that are somewhat thin but also in areas where the grass is thick. The final outcome will be a nice green carpet of grass for your enjoyment.

Ornamental Bed Weed Control

You can keep your ornamental beds looking their best with our specialized weed control services for landscape beds. Huckaby Turf Care’s weed prevention and weed control service eliminates the need for the tedious process of hand weeding those ornamental beds. My ornamental bed weed control and prevention program utilizes pre-emergent and post-emergent weed control without harming established shrubs and ornamentals plants. To achieve maximum results, a full program which consists of 4 visits is recommended to maintain a weed-free landscape. If ornamental beds are heavily infested with weeds, it may take several visits before adequate control is achieved. Your Huckaby Turf Care professional is trained and licensed to apply ornamental bed weed control products. You want a nice landscape so why not invest in the best.

Lawn Disease Control

Why do lawns get disease is a common question and one that can be difficult to explain. In order for a disease to become active, it has to have the right environment. There are diseases that can grow in just about every weather condition. Cool weather diseases include Snow Mold and Leaf Spot. Warm weather diseases include Red Thread and Dollar Spot and in hot weather you can include Brown Patch, Summer Patch and Necrotic Ring Spot. For lawn disease control many diseases can be controlled by adjusting the environment by mowing higher or changing watering amounts and the time of day that you water. Other diseases may require an application to prevent development or stop its current growth. Tall Fescue lawns are very susceptible to a deadly lawn disease called “Brown Patch”. This disease is often mistaken for heat or drought stress, but it is actually a disease. Lawns that are watered in the late afternoon or early evening are more susceptible to this disease.
