Having a great looking lawn is more than just more than just mowing it. Cullins Service has a formula that will work your lawn and get it growing green, healthy and crab grass free. We don’t want to give away all the secrets, but it involves cutting the grass, thatching w/ our classen seeder which I turned into a turf rake which you can see here. After the thatching we have to clean up all the thatch. Going over it with a mower should pick it right up. Then aerating with our ryan aerator. Coring the lawn with an aerator will relieve the compaction of the soil which can block the grass roots from getting the proper nutrition. It also allows water, air and nutrients to reach the roots of the grass. Not everyone who wants a great lawn knows about aeration, but it is important.

So after perforating holes in your lawn let’s put some fertilizer and seed at the same time. Aerating should be done twice a year in the spring and the fall, but fertilizing should be done at least four times. There is more to it than just throwing fertilizer down some lawns need different types or more of one nutrient than others. Then there is hydro fertilizer or dry fertilizer, and we offer both. With seeding you can pretty much throw seed down whenever although there are better times when you should. We like to put seed down after we aerate and the times we fertilize giving the seed a better chance at surviving. With seeding you get better results when at least 3/4 of the seed is in contact w/ the soil.

So as I said there is more to it, and it’s not that simple of a process. If done right you will have an enviable lawn. Hope you enjoyed this bit of knowledge, and if your in the Newton ma, area looking for a great lawn give us a call 617-446-1382.

 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.

  Cullins Service Sprinkler System Installation Zone 01 in Wellesley

Cullins Service has installed a sprinkler System for Wellesley Property. We worked hard to get the lawn looking as beautiful as it does, and want to make sure it stays that way. The hot summer days can take a toll on grass. Installing a sprinkler can help relieve the stress of heat and keep your lawn looking lush and green.

We used Rainbird sprinkler heads, flex pipe, funny pipe, various pvc connectors and an automatic timer. So the homeowner has no need to worry about doing anything, but enjoy their healthy lawn.

This was zone 01 out of 06 zones. So look forward to seeing other sprinkler blogs, videos and galleries later. We sodded the grass and dug the trenches by hand. It was to time consuming so we have just got a kissCutter sod cutter and a E-Z Trench Bedscaper. Same great work with half or less the time. Cullins Service will be posting video, blogs and galleries on them as soon as we get some footage.

We enjoyed installing this irrigation system and hope you enjoy or posts and videos on it.

Cullins Service Leaf Removal and Cleanup Service Before

Cullins Service Leaf Removal and Cleanup Service for one of our Needham properties. Cullins Service provided our full Leaf Removal Service for this great property. We brought out our 2 Echo PB-250 Blowers, JRCO Leaf Plow mounted to Husqvarna Z246 Zero Turn and our new Scag TLS20W-29BV Giant Vac. Obviously we started blowing in the back. In most cases trying to move large piles of leaves can be difficult and time consuming so we brought our JRCO Leaf Plow mounted to Husqvarna Z246 Zero Turn. It plows massive piles of leaves anywhere real quick. This property had plenty of leaves to plow. The plow moves most of the leaves, but leaves a few behind. Not really a problem. The blowers make short work of that. When all the leaves are brought to the front either by leaf plow or blowing it’s

time to vac them up. When we started out we used to use tarps. We filled them and stuffed them into the van. This year we came packing the big guns in the form of a 29hp Scag Giant Vac. We converted the back of the van into a leaf hopper (a gallery of that process will be available soon), and mounted the Scag Giant Vac onto our trailer. It’s a great setup because we can still fit plenty of equipment on the trailer. We saved a great deal of time using the Scag Leaf Vac. It sucked the leaves right up.

After Cullins Service finished our Leaf Removal Service there were also some flower beds to clean out. We removed the dead vegetation to make it look better and make room for new growth next year. We also mowed the grass which needed to be done and helps pick up any leaves left over from

Cullins Service acquired this property this year and it has become a regular. We had already done an initial cleanup now we are doing routine maintenance. This time though we have some tree work to do.

First Cullins Service weeded out the front flower bed. We also removed some old bushes, and trimmed dead parts off a few bushes to clean them up. In the back yard he had a tree with a broken branch and some other branches that were to heavy. They were leaning down so much they were touching the grass. So to start we cut the broken branch off. We then strategically cut branches off the low hanging branches to lessen the weight and raise the branches up. We wanted the cuts to be effective without making the tree look like it was just chopped up it has to look natural. We cut a few more low hanging branches in the backyard the cut the grass real nice with our Turf Beast 54 in. 22 HP Subaru Commercial

Driveway crack fill and seal Dorchester Property

Driveway crack fill and seal Dorchester Property

Cullins Service went to Dorchester to seal a driveway and fill in some cracks. First we edged and gained a few inches on either side of the driveway. Then we removed all debris, sand, dirt, mulch, rock dust and anything else that was on the driveway. Cullins Service Landscapers cleared all sides to define clear edges.

Then one of us took a brush and sealed all around and up the driveway on all edges. Then we spread the sealant all around all way up the driveway.

Cullins Service came back to make sure the job was done right. We had a few touch ups. The driveway as you can see looked great a big improvement. We filled all the cracks and sealed over them. In new England if you have cracks in your driveway or streets the water will get into them then freeze in the winter. Causing even bigger cracks. Now this customer will not have to worry about that.
