Lawn Renovation Service

When your lawn isn’t up to par, and lawn care services alone aren’t enough to meet your expectations, a lawn renovation is a game changer. A lawn renovation breathes new life into your lawn and is budget friendly at about one-third the cost of a new lawn installation. 

Is a lawn renovation the right strategy for your lawn? It may not always be a straightforward decision, as the timeframe you have to work with, the size of the area and number and severity of symptoms will dictate the appropriate strategy. A site assessment is necessary to make a final determination as to the best approach or combination of strategies. Which symptoms does your lawn have? 

Symptoms that can be addressed with a lawn renovation include: 

  • Small damaged areas and bare spots
  • Weedy and thin turf
  • Older, under-maintained lawn for five years or more, is stressed and underperforming
  • Heavy thatch accumulation or old bluegrass sod
  • Pest damage (e.g. grub and insect, and/or disease)
  • Different turf types (e.g. patchy appearance from various or multiple seedings)
  • Undesirable grass types (e.g. Creeping bentgrass, crabgrass, annual bluegrass, course fescue)
  • Accidental application (e.g. too much fertilizer or used “Round-up” to control weeds in the lawn)
  • Change in environment (e.g. loss of trees to full sun, or increasing shade canopy from maturing trees.

A lawn renovation does not address more severe symptoms, which may require a partial or complete new lawn installation to address these symptoms:   

  • Uneven, bump turf requiring soil and grading (e.g. low and high spots making mowing difficult)
  • Defects (e.g. stumps, more significant damage)
  • Yard simplification (e.g. remove and reduce bed space and convert to lawn)
  • Excavation from utility line replacement 
  • Poor grading or drainage (e.g. puddling, water flows toward structure)
  • Poor soil quality and structure (e.g., turf won’t grow, evidence of buried debris or depleted soil)
  • Hard, compacted soil, excessive moss
  • New or planned construction

The key distinction between different methods of seeding is the amount of soil or surface preparation before installing new seed. A New Lawn Installation is a different process and requires a larger investment to overcome and correct the defects. 

To prevent your lawn from developing similar symptoms again, maintain your investment with a Lawn Care Program that provides essential nutrients and pest management.
