This Client wanted to put his property on the market. But first they wanted to add some curb appeal. When trying to sell your property curb appeal is one of the most cost effective ways to add value to your property. The first thing prospective buyers see when arriving is the yard. Trimming bushes, removing bushes, planting bushes or flowers, edging, mulching adding sod for an immediate beautiful lawn are a few ways to make your property more appealing to a home buyer.

On this property we removed a couple out of control bushes and planted some beautiful Rhododendrons and

green wave yews. We used a Toro Dingo to remove the old bushes and an auger bit to dig the holes to plant the new shrubs. After the shrubs were properly in the ground. Yes there is a proper way way to plant shrubs. We edged the bed with our EZ-Trench Bededger then Mulched the beds.

Now it was time to prep the ground and lay down some sod. We had to remove all vegetation. Some use a vegetation killer, dig it up or till everything and rake it up. We decided using our Turfco Kiscutter sodder was the best and quickest way for us. We then got to try out our new

Husqvarna DRT900H tiller. We tilled the area and removed any leftover vegetation and rocks anything that would prevent the grass roots from thriving. Now it was time for the Ford to drop some organic loam compost mix. This will give the grass nutrients and good drainage. Not done prepping yet we graded out the area with our razor back rake grader. Finally before laying down anything we put down some fertilizer and adjusted the Ph. Now we wait for the sod delivery. You have to time everything because you want to lay the sod as soon as it arrives. When the sod arrived we immediately started meticulously laying and cutting. After that we set up a simple watering system and stood back to enjoy the

 Wellesley lawn care Lawn Installation seeding growing grass.

There is more than one way to install a lawn. For this property we are going to use the seeding method. There is also more than one way to seed here we are using our classen turf seeder.¬† One variable that does not change when installing a lawn is soil prep. One thing I believe about lawn care is “if the soil is good the grass will grow”. Now I know there are other things to take into account like water, sun, shade, weather ect… . But if your soil drains well has the right ph balance, good organic material and is fertilized correctly among other things your grass will be well on it’s way to a healthy life.

Some property’s are just plain lucky and their grass will just grow naturally. That is the exception not the rule. To have a beautiful, green, full lawn it takes maintenance. If you want a green velvety blanket of a lawn it will take a scheduled routine maintenance. Mowing, fertilizing, aerating, thatching, watering the right amount. Any way that’s not important right now, but if your interested give us a call ad we would be happy to give you a free estimate.

So we assessed the property and the owner wanted seeding so we removed the old grass, tilled the ground, added organic loam, fertilized, limed, and seeded. That with the right amount of water and some maintenance along the way. We or I mean the client got a great looking lawn. When the project comes out looking good we look good and that makes this work worth it.
