Best Lawn Care Company in St. Louis Now Offering Triple Aeration

Posted on Monday, July 25, 2016 at 04: 30 PM by Kelly Dowell

Soil compaction is one of the primary reasons that grass won’t grow to its potential. Whether the result of mowing, foot or pet traffic or irrigation; soil compaction restricts the movement of oxygen, nutrients and water to the lawn. As a result, the grass grows slowly and poorly and soon becomes susceptible to drought, disease, and insect damage. [http://www.lawnandlandscape.com/article/ll-031815-aerate-aeration-equipment/]

Aeration equipment removes 1.5 to 3 inch plugs of soil to allow moisture, air & nutrients down to the root zone. A double aeration takes the form of two passes in opposite directions. A triple aeration adds one more pass with the aerator, multiplying the opportunity for a successful lawn.

What to Look for in a St. Louis Mulching Company

Posted on Wednesday, March 23, 2016 at 12: 27 PM by Maurice Dowell

Your Dowco mulch project receives 3 important things.  First a world class bed cleanup, followed by a crisp shovel edge and finally the smooth application of your mulch of choice. 

First: A Spring Bed Cleanup 

During the bed cleanup, any remaining ornamental grasses are cut low and as level as possible without damaging the crown; the area where the stems meet the roots.  We remove the dead from spent perennials and cut them back to about 1”.  This helps prevent the spread of any pests or disease that may have over-wintered.
