Prepare Your Picture Perfect Lawn For Spring!
Fox Creek Lawn Aeration Seeding Fertilization Applications are essential components of complete lawn care. Setting a regular lawn maintenance schedule will allow your lawn to rejuvenate and heal from excessive drought and foot traffic while promoting healthy soil quality.
Did you know the Length of the Growing Season is different throughout Virginia? Areas at higher elevations in western Virginia may have a three month shorter growing season than areas in southeastern Virginia. As you would expect, a longer growing season will require more care.
The quality of turfgrass is measured by the density, color, and texture. If high levels of turfgrass quality are desired, a commitment must be made to properly care for the turfgrass – including frequent mowing, and adjusted rates of nitrogen and more frequent applications.
Recycling grass clippings provide significant amounts of nitrogen and potassium, which in turn results in very little to thatch.

Fox Creek Lawn Aeration and Overseeding
Picture Perfect Lawn Maintenance is the local authority for Aeration and Overseeding. You can maintain a healthy and green lawn with PPLM’s Aeration and Overseeding services. PPLM’s lawn aeration service breaks up the compacted soil and prepares the ground for growth and development. Aeration and overseeding is absolutely necessary for a green lawn and should be handled by a professional.
Aerating is where a machine remove “plugs” of soil from the turf area. These plugs allow moisture and nutrients to be absorbed quicker. They also provide a pathway for carbon dioxide to escape from the soil so oxygen can then enter the soil. Spring and early fall are the best times to aerate. Summer aeration of cool-season grasses, such as bluegrass, bentgrass, and fescue, is not generally recommended because these grasses are in a semi-dormant condition, whereas crabgrass is quite active.
Seeding your lawn during the core aeration process is the best time to thicken your turf and help prevent unwanted grasses and weeds. Overseeding involves generously spreading new lawn seed across the service of your lawn. Picture Perfect Lawn Maintenance utilizes a special grass blend that designed especially for the Virginia climate. This mixture establishes a dense, healthy lawn with excellent drought resistance.

Our fertilization process is one of the best in the industries. We incorporate all organic fertilization materials that decrease the amount of synthetic chemicals, which is normally used. Our company is committed to keeping America clean straight through to the roots! The lawn care experts at PPLM know that a proper fertilization regimen is a critical component to the overall health and beauty of your lawn. PPLM’s lawn fertilization services are tailored to the unique characteristics and patterns of your lawn to achieve the best possible results.
Fertilization of lawns is essential for the production of quality turf; however, exceeding recommended fertilizer application rates or improper application timing can negatively impact groundwater quality. Our professional team members are trained to calculate the right percentage of nitrogen, phosphate and potassium needed to feed your lawn, and the amount of applications required to maximize the health and vibrancy of your landscape.
Fertilizers are used to improve or maintain turfgrass quality. The value of a fertilizer depends upon the total amount of nutrients and the source of nitrogen in the fertilizer. Soil tests can provide important information about the fertility of your lawn soil and the results will indicate the amounts of phosphorus, potassium, calcium, and magnesium your soil can provide to the turfgrass.

Fertilizer Definitions from The Center for Turfgrass Science
Content provided by http://plantscience.psu.edu/research/centers/turf/extension/factsheets/aeration
Complete Fertilizer. A complete fertilizer contains the three major fertilizer elements–nitrogen, phosphorus (phosphate), and potassium (potash).
Fertilizer Grade. The fertilizer grade designates the percentages of nitrogen, phosphate, and potash in the product. A 20-5-10 grade fertilizer contains 20 percent nitrogen, five percent phosphates and 10 percent potash. Thus, a 40-lb bag of 20-5-10 contains eight lb of nitrogen (20 percent of 40), two lb of phosphate (five percent of 40), and four lb of potash (10 percent of 40). The law requires that the grade be listed on the container and always in the order of nitrogen, phosphate, and potash.
Fertilizer Ratio. The fertilizer ratio indicates the relationship among the percentages of nitrogen, phosphate, and potash found in fertilizer. A 10-5-5 grade contains twice as much nitrogen as phosphate or potash and has a 2-1-1 ratio. Grades of 16-8-8 and 20-10-10 also have a 2-1-1 ratio. A grade of 12-4-8 has a 3-1-2 ratio. A ratio may be determined by dividing each number of the fertilizer grade by the lowest number of the grade.
Liquid Fertilizer. Fluids in which fertilizer nutrients are in true solution are liquid fertilizers. However, this term is applied also to suspension and slurry fertilizers, which are fluid mixtures containing dissolved and undissolved plant nutrients. Unlike true liquid fertilizers, they require continuous mechanical agitation during application. The value of these materials is based on the grade and weight of the liquid rather than on the fluid content. The law requires the weight to be listed on the container. The plant nutrient content may be calculated in the same manner as dry fertilizers. If, for example, a gallon of 10-5-5 liquid fertilizer weighs 10.5 lbs, then that gallon contains 1.05 lbs of nitrogen (10 percent of 10.5), 0.525 lbs of phosphate (five percent of 10.5), and 0.525 lbs of potash (five percent of 10.5).
Flowable Fertilizer. Fertilizer nutrients of extremely small particle size are carried in liquid suspension. Because of the particle size and added suspension agents, they do not require constant mechanical agitation during application.
