A Low nitrogen, mid-late summer application is used to prevent nitrogen burn during the hot months. Lastly, a winterizing application is applied to prepare and feed your lawn during the cold winter months. An optional 5th application for grub control may also be added.

Aerating is also offered by Gray and Grandpa. Aerating is the single most overlooked and cost effective way to benefit your turf grass. This service is best done is spring or fall. Aerating benefits soil, grass, roots, and helps promote healthy behavior for months to come. Gray and Grandpa strongly recommends anyone who is over seeding to have those areas aerated beforehand. Seed germination rate can greatly increase simply from being aerated. More information is available in the aerating page.
Over seeding is best done in fall but can also be done in spring. Keeping soil moist around seeded grass is essential. Gray and Grandpa will strongly suggest aeration before over seeding. Aerating has many benefits including higher germination rates. Additional information is available in the over seeding page.
Weed control is ideally done in spring or fall depending on the type of weed problems you are experiencing. Spraying can be delayed due to hot, windy, or rainy conditions. Reasons for this include safety precautions as well as the effectiveness of the weed control. Additional information can be found in the weed spray page.
Edging will clean up your sidewalks and available curb lines with a clean cut edge using hand and powered tools. Edging is best done when it is dry to provide the best possible edge and prevent unnecessary mess. Additional information and a price guide is available in the edging page.
Hedge trimming can be done almost any time for most plants. Although most plants will benefit much more from being trimmed at the proper time. Specific details can vary widely depending on the type of plant(s) you have. Additional information can be found in the hedge trimming page.
Cleaning your gutters of debris will help avoid premature wear on your gutters and downspouts, also ensuring proper drainage to reduce the chance of water damage to your property. Most often, one time in the spring and again in the fall is enough to ensure proper drainage. Areas with tall trees that drop debris throughout the year and are placed close to buildings may require cleaning more often. Additional information is available in the gutters page.
While some soil testing can be accurately conducted through simpler means, Gray and Grandpa will send unsure soil tests in to the University of Nebraska for a complete test. Identifying the real problem can save time, money, and your lawn from ineffective remedies. Contact us for more details.
