3 Key Factors to Consider for The Best Turf Care Program in St. Louis

If you desire a lush, green lawn this season then you're probably taking time this spring to do a little research. The best St. Louis turf care takes into consideration three factors.

What to Look for in a St. Louis Mulching Company

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. 

Spring Aeration & Seeding in St. Louis

During the spring we receive quite a few calls from people who ask, "How much do you charge for core aeration in the spring?"  And our short answer is nothing!

As a general rule of thumb, spring is not the best time to aerate and seed your your St. Louis lawn and this is why.

Spring is the time to put down crabgrass pre-emergents to prevent weeds from germinating.

Have you ever had to choose between two options?

  • After dinner: Wash the dishes or go to the gym for a workout?
  • Before bed: Put away laundry or read a book?

These are common choices that most of us have faced in our adulthood. Making constant decisions over how the chores, or nonessential tasks, in our lives are going to be handled is draining for you brain!

There’s an obvious answer in each of the questions above, however sometimes the non-essential become so glaringly overwhelming that we must do it.
