Types of Residential Turf Care Services

Turf care services are an essential part of maintaining a beautiful lawn. They are also a necessary part of keeping your home safe and secure. If you want to keep your grass looking its best, you should consider hiring a professional residential turf care service.

There are several different types of residential turf care services out there. Some are better suited for certain types of yards while others are better suited for other types of yards.

In this article, we will discuss the different types of residential turf services and explain why each type is better suited for different types of yards.


The first type of residential turf care service that most people think about when they hear the word “turf care” is mowing. Mowing is one of the easiest ways to maintain a nice-looking yard. It can be done by anyone with basic tools like a push or riding mower. However, it does not take into account all aspects of caring for a yard. For example, if you have trees in your yard, then trimming them may become more important than just cutting down the grass.


The second type of residential turf care service is fertilizing. Fertilization helps plants grow faster and stronger. This means that you get a bigger yield from your plants. You do need some experience doing fertilizer applications before you start applying fertilizer on your own. But once you learn how to apply fertilizer correctly, you’ll find yourself saving money over time because you won’t have to buy as much fertilizer.


Another way to improve the appearance of your yard is through overseeding. Overseeding involves planting new seeds at specific times during the year so that you don’t end up having bare spots in your yard. There are many benefits to overseeding including:

1) Your lawn looks healthier and greener.

2) The soil stays moist longer which makes it easier for weeds to germinate.

3) Overseeded areas look less patchy.

Olive Elimination

Olive elimination involves removing olives from your yard. Olives cause problems such as spreading disease and attracting pests. Removing these unwanted items improves the overall health of your yard.

Nutsedge Control

Nutsedge control is another method used to remove undesirable vegetation from your yard. Nutsedges include Japanese knotweed, Canada thistle, and common reeds. These species spread quickly and create unsightly patches in your yard.

Broadleaf Weed Control

Broadleaf weed control includes using herbicides to kill broadleaf weeds. Herbicide use has been shown to reduce the amount of nitrogen available to plants. Nitrogen availability affects plant growth. So reducing the amount of nitrogen available reduces the size of your plants. In addition, herbicides are harmful to animals and humans. Therefore, it is recommended that you only use herbicides under the supervision of a licensed applicator.

Grass Seeder

Grass seeder is another option for controlling weeds. A grass seeder sprays small amounts of seed onto the ground where you want to see grass growing. When the seed germinates, it grows into healthy green grass. Using a grass seeder requires training and practice.

Tree & Plant Growth Regulators

Tree and plant growth regulators help regulate tree and shrub growth. TPGRs work by slowing down the rate at which leaves develop. Leaves are what photosynthesis uses to make food. Slowed development allows trees and shrubs to conserve energy. By conserving energy, trees and shrubs will live longer.
