Lawn Care

Our lawn care program proactively nurtures your lawn throughout the year. Our technicians visit your property every other month to perform a specific, granular application and to spot treat your lawn for unwanted weeds before they become a serious problem.

Each application has a different purpose to help build the strength of your lawn. In the spring, our goal is to minimize crab grass, build turf strength, and boost your lawn’s root system before the harsher onset of summer. Summer applications build the color of your lawn while continuing to strengthen its endurance against summer weather. In the fall, we aerate to release soil compaction, add new seeds to existing turf, and give your lawn the nutrients it needs to survive the winter. Finally, during the winter, we improve your soil’s fertility in preparation for the spring by adjusting its ph levels.

Throughout all applications, our technicians will be continuously spot treating your lawn for weeds. Spot treating is preferable because it eliminates the need to spray an application over your entire lawn. Overtime, as your lawn becomes weed and crab grass free, the need for spot treating will decline.

Our technician(s) are licensed to perform all applications. They are knowledgeable of different types of issues that can occur with your lawn and can work with you onsite to remedy any problems.

Lawn Mowing

Lawn Mowing is at the heart of the Greener Side Lawn & Landscaping business. We started our entire business thirteen years ago with two lawn mowers. Now, our lawn mowing crews take care of hundreds of lawns a week in Alexandria and Arlington, VA.

In the spring and summer seasons, we recommend weekly mowings and will alter our mowing schedule to bi-weekly when appropriate during dry or extremely hot weather when grass grows slower.
