Lawn Care Program

Our Lawn Care Program involves the right treatments at the right time to deliver a quality lawn. We take pride in keeping your lawn healthy and lush through proper fertilization, insect, disease, and weed control. Our Lawn Care Program includes 5 treatments per season – 4 fertilizations with weed control for common weeds and 1 lime treatment to help with soil acidity. We focus on soil health including the use of organic matter in our lawn healthcare program.

Additional services not included in our basic Lawn Care Program which may be needed from time to time include:

Grub control

Specialty weed treatments for more exotic weeds

Fungus treatment

Soil test

Corrective treatments based on the results of the soil test

Aeration and overseeding

Hydroseeding to help establish a new lawn

Hybrid Lawn Care Program

Harmony offers an organic lawn care program but notes that a “rescue” weed treatment will likely be needed over time. The rescue weed treatment is not organic but will be needed for clients who want to limit weeds in their lawn. This hybrid approach seeks to balance an “organic emphasis” with the practical reality that fully organic weed control is not very effective.

The Harmony Team can also help with hydroseeding

What are the key drivers of a healthy lawn…


Quality Soil

Seed type

The right type of seed for your location

Seed generics

genetics matter with seed


A well established root system. Just as your home sits on a solid foundation, a quality lawn is cultivated on a foundation of quality soil and a robust bed of roots.

Treatment Regimen

An informed and disciplined treatment regimen that adapts to your lawn and weather conditions and contributes to a strong root system.

Sensible mowing and watering practices.

What factors may be contributing to issues with your lawn?

Poor soil

too much clay and rock in our area. Not enough top soil. Building contractors typically do not use enough topsoil because of cost or lack of awareness.

Poor seed choice

Select a type of seed and seed genetics designed to work well given your property and our climate. The selection of a more hearty and disease resistant seed leads to better results.

Compacted soil

Hard and compacted soil make it difficult for roots to penetrate the soil to access the required food, nutrients and oxygen needed to support an attractive lawn. Soil compaction occurs when soil particles are pressed together, reducing pore space. A compacted soil contributes to poor drainage and less oxygen/gas exchange needed for a healthy root system and lawn. Aeration can help with compaction…but it’s important to avoid factors that contribute to compaction. More on soil compaction []

PH out of range

When the PH is not correct, the roots have difficulty accessing food and other nutrients needed for a healthy lawn.

Weeds crowding out the lawn

Weeds are aggressive and seek total domination of your lawn. A disciplined and informed program is needed to keep the balance of power in favor of the lawn. Lawns with a heavy weed infestation may need to be replanted.

Other invaders

Bugs and fungus can invade your lawn. More frequent “scouting” visits help us to monitor your lawn for signs of these issues. This scouting allows us to apply more intelligence and therefore apply fewer chemicals on your property.

Too little nitrogen

not enough nourishment for a healthy lawn.

Too much nitrogen

too much food near the surface leads to shallow roots as the roots are not forced to grow and develop a robust root platform for lawn grown. Without a solid base of roots, lawns are less resilient in the face of challenging weather, invasive weeds, bugs and disease. Don’t let your lawn become a nitrogen junkie with a shallow and weak roots system.

Too little water

an irrigation system…used sparingly is a good idea. During dry spells, infrequent “deep” watering helps to keep your lawn healthy and growing.

Too much water

leads to a shallow root system as the roots do not need to grow to find water. Too much water can “drown” your lawn as lawns need access to oxygen in the soil.

Poor mowing practices

Mowing too short

A blade of grass is like a solar panel…a longer blade helps it to gather more energy. A long and healthy stand of grass is your best defense to “crowd out” the weeds.

Mowing too much

in one cut shocks and weakens the lawn. Cut no more than 1/3 the length of the grass blade.

Dull blades

mowing with dull blades shreds/damages the grass blade instead of making a nice clean cut. Our teams sharpen their blades at least once a week and at times daily.

Mowing when wet

compacts the soil making it difficult for roots to penetrate the soil to find food and nutrients. Compaction also reduces the air pockets that roots need under the soil to access oxygen.

Our Landscape Maintenance Breakdown

We'll keep your landscape in top condition

Weekly Mowing

Weekly mowing includes mowing the lawn, string trimming as needed, and blowing off the driveway and other hardscapes. Disposal of grass clippings, leaves, sticks, and other debris is not included and will be an additional charge.

Spring and Fall Clean Up

The time required is charged by the man hour plus a fee for disposal.


Bed cleaning, edging, and mulch services to beautify your home, help to control weeds, and retain soil moisture. While we often use natural hardwood mulch.

Shrub Pruning

Shrub pruning is needed to help control the size and shape of your shrubs. Pruning can also help with airflow and with light penetration into the center of the shrub to enhance shrub health. The winter is a good time to do hand pruning for airflow and light penetration. Winter is also a good time to aggressively reduce the size of overgrown shrubs.

Bed Weed Control

A systematic approach of prevention and control to help keep weeds under control in garden beds. Hand weeding services are also available as an additional charge.
