Lawns, Sod, & Turf Renovation
Lawns are a key part of the landscape, much like the floor o r carpet in a house. As members of Virginia Turfgrass Council, we understand turf culture, and keep up with the developments in turf science and methods. Fall is the best turf season, and we recommend that turf projects be undertaken only at that time, if possible.

We offer a several options, from a once per year ‘Spring Clean Up’, to year round care. Typical services include edging, mulching, hand pruning of trees and shrubs, perennial border maintenance, soil analysis, and fertilization.
