Like hair, lawns can suffer from thinning and/or bald spots. But unlike hair problems, your lawn is easy to fix with SML's fall "beauty treatments." Ask us NOW which fall treatment is best for you. For really sparse lawns or particular problem areas, slit seeding is the answer; that intensive process requires us to cut hundreds of grooves in the ground as grass seeds are dropped all around. For a more general treatment to beautify your entire existing lawn, aerating the ground (a process by which we use a special machine to poke tiny holes all over) allows water, nutrients/fertilizer, and air to penetrate more deeply, thereby encouraging good health and thicker growth, especially if we add grass seed to "overseed" the existing lawn. Again, SML can tell you which process will work best for you; just call NOW to schedule a visit. Find out more about these services
The term "hardscaping" refers to HARD materials such as those made up of concrete, brick, wood, stone or other manmade materials and can be used in your landscape for features like patios, fences, steps, walkways and paths, walls, firepits and borders. Living trees and plants constitute "softscaping," which can be added into the hardscaping to enhance it.
Bored with your lawn area? Adding a hardscape feature can help you to fall in love all over again with your home. Redesigning your lawn area can make your home warmer and more inviting. Outdoor living areas make your home more comfortable for everyday life and make entertaining better and easier than you might imagine. Stone patios are ideal spots for backyard parties or barbeques, even business meetings.
Whether it's just you and the family hanging out for the evening, inviting the neighbors over for dessert, or having a large family gathering or party, hardscaping will help you bring it to life. Find out more about our hardscaping services
