Fertilizer Programs

Fertilizer Programs

Specifically designed programs for each yard. Depending on the sunlight your yard gets, we can adjust the types of fertilizer to give your yard its best chance for looking good from spring through fall. We have insect control plans to help keep grubs at bay, and broadleaf weed control to help control those pesky dandelions and broadleaves before they become a nuisance. 2M Outdoor Services can design a lawn care and fertilizing program to fit your needs and insure only properly trained and state certified applicators treat your yard.

Mowing Services

Mowing Services

One area that we excel at is our commercial and residential lawn mowing service. Did you know that if you cut your grass too short that you could damage or even kill your grass? Even if that doesn't happen, cutting grass too short can leave unsightly brown patches in your lawn. By the same token, letting your grass grow too long can encourage unsightly diseases. Did you also know that there is an ideal grass height at which to cut and an ideal amount to cut it? 2M Outdoor Services offers lawn-mowing service in the Des Moines metro area. We can help you with grass cutting for your lawn on a weekly basis. While we’re there we'll also trim around obstructions; edge the walks, driveway, and curb line; pick up trash; and blow the walks clean. If you want your property looking pristine, grass care is a key element. We use all commercial equipment that is operated and maintained by professionals to ensure a consistent cut every time.

Aeration

Aeration

Power core aeration is one of the most important cultural practices available for your lawn. Aeration helps control thatch, improves the soil structure, helps create growth pockets for new roots, and opens the way for water and fertilizer to reach the root zone of your lawn. Annual or semi-annual aeration is advised for all lawns on heavy clay soils, those with a thatch buildup, and any lawn that needs to be "thickened up". Regular aeration can help avoid costly lawn renovation. Thatch on your lawn works like a thatched roof. This layer of roots, stems and other plant parts sheds water and prevents fertilizers and insect controls from moving freely into the soil. Thatch that is too heavy can make major lawn renovation necessary. Regular aeration helps thatch break down naturally by mixing the soil cores into the thatch and speeding up decomposition. Performed in spring or fall, aeration significantly reduces thatch and improves turf growth.
