I started using Heartland within the last year and am impressed by how reliable and great they are to work with. If it rains on your mowing day, they make sure you are taken care of the next morning! Great customer service, on a personal level while still fully professional. Their prices are low compared to competitors and still do just as good of a job! I'd highly recommend their services!
This company and its employees are the best! They provide excellent customer service. The attention they give to my lawn is above and beyond. I look forward to every Tuesday as my lawn looks remarkable. I have used them for other services and I have been equally pleased!
Best lawn service ever. They always show up on the day scheduled and do a great job. I also appreciate the offers for leaf removal and cutting down a small tree in my back yard after the first hard snowstorm. I highly recommend this company for your lawn care needs.
HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! I’ve used Heartland now for 4 years and they’re great! Their work is the best! If I ever have any issue with a treatment not working for my grass the owner himself would come out and re-apply the treatment. My lawn never looked better! Not to mention they have extremely good rates with their treatment plan. I highly recommend them to anyone!!!
You must be absolutely delighted with our services! If for ANY REASON you feel you’re not absolutely 100% happy with our work, I won’t be happy either! That means I will not rest until we make it right. I will immediately send my team to fix the problem, no questions asked. If it’s still not good enough, we’ll refund your money. That’s how strongly I believe you’ll love what we do. Let us prove it to you!
Overseeding is the process of planting grass seed directly into existing turf without having to tear up the lawn. While the core concept of overseeding is simple to understand, there are many steps to take along the way if you want to get the job done right. Heartland Turf & Landscape promises to always do the job the right way, so you can rest assured knowing we never take shortcuts when overseeding your lawn.
Verticutting and aeration are great ways to ensure that the seed is being properly planted in order to absorb as many nutrients as possible. The verticutting machine makes shallow slices into the soil, and then we will go over the turf again to create a crisscross pattern, which allows the seed to fall down to an appropriate depth beneath the soil. Aeration is a somewhat similar process that removes plugs of dense soil from your yard to help your lawn breath and improve its overall quality. These techniques go hand in hand and should always be used in conjunction with one another; this is the best way to make sure that your grass will grow and thrive!
Equally as important as fertilizing, proper weed control protects your lawn and plants and keeps your yard looking great. We apply different weed control mixtures at strategic times throughout the fertilization program. A broadleaf weed control targeting dandelions, clovers, etc. will be applied in the spring, and it will be reapplied later in the season when we return to apply more fertilizer.
When we make our pre-summer visit to apply the slow-release fertilizer, we will implement a spot treatment to take care of any visible broadleaf or grassy weeds. Our final planned weed control treatment will come in early fall. If all steps are taken and we work together, we can ensure that you have the healthiest, weed-free lawn when spring arrives the following year.
After the overseeding is complete, it is important not to neglect the watering and aftercare. Because the aftercare is such a crucial part of the entire overseeding process, we will guide you through what needs to be done even long after we leave. We will provide you with detailed instructions on how to properly take care of your newly seeded turf, and we will assist you by sending out reminders so you never have to worry about forgetting when to water.
Watering Frequency: The first two weeks will see the highest volume of aftercare. You will want to water your grass about three times a day for up to ten minutes per session. The ultimate goal in the first two weeks is to make sure that the entire surface of the lawn remains slightly moist at all times. You should still feel a bit of moisture in the soil just before the next watering session. If you notice the turf is drying up between waterings, you may need to water more frequently.
After the initial two weeks, watering and the amount of time you put into your lawn can be cut back significantly. By this time, the seeds should begin to sprout roots, and you should be well on your way to the lawn you’ve always wanted. It is important to still keep your lawn properly hydrated, but watering at this stage typically can be reduced to about once a week.
Contact after the initial visit: To ensure the best results possible, we will send out a manager to inspect your lawn after the first two weeks to do a visual inspection. This will allow us to get a better assessment of how the treatment is working and if any additional steps need to be taken. Mowing services will be canceled for those first two weeks in order to help the seeds grow. When mowing is ready to resume, we will contact you for a reminder to stop watering two days prior to the mowing. We will take every measure possible to ensure success!
