Even with the best care available, lawns can thin out and lose color over time. This is due to a variety of factors such as excessive thatch build-up, hard or compacted soils, or periods of high temperature, high humidity, or drought. Regular aeration of your lawn improves your soil and restores and maintains the beauty of your lawn by reducing thatch and loosening up compacted soils so water and nutrients can reach the roots of your turf. Aeration treatments are essential to control thatch, reduce compaction, help fill in bare spots and revitalize growth. The best time to perform lawn aerations is the fall season, followed by seeding to help fill in bare areas and thicken turf density.

Overseeding lawns is an important step in maintaining turf that can dramatically improve the quality of your lawn. The practice of overseeding consists or properly spreading the right type of grass seed over an existing lawn, and knowing how to do it correctly is the key. A blade of grass that sprouts from a grass root has a short lifespan of about 6 weeks, and the root continually produces new blades as old ones die. Over time, grass roots reproduce blades more slowly and that are weaker that newer roots, causing an overall turf to thin out. Annual overseeding in the late summer or early fall ensure your lawn has established, new grass growing at all times to maintain a healthy, vibrantly green landscape.
If you want a thick, healthy lawn but don’t want to wait and “watch the grass grow” nothing beats sod. Establishing a lawn from seed can easily take 14 to 18 months. The sod professionals at JFK Lawn & Landscape can expertly lay quality sod right so that in just a few weeks you’ll have a thick, well-established lawn that is naturally resistant to diseases, weeds, and pest infestations.

Gutter Cleaning

Cleaning your gutters is essential for the maintenance and protection of your property. Keeping the gutters free of debris also protects the foundation of your property. There are many benefits of a clean gutter system, but primarily it allows efficient and proper rain drainage from the roof. Gutters prevent rain from pounding onto the windows, doors, sidewalk, and porch. Improper water drainage can also lead to a leaky basement and unsafe walkways.

We recommend cleaning your gutters and flushing out your downspouts twice a year since rain water, leaves, twigs, and other debris can clog your gutters and eventually become a breeding place for mosquitoes, wasps, and termites. Cleaning them in the fall will remove the seasonal leaves and tree debris, and an additional cleaning in the spring will remove the helicopters and tree buds.

Using ladders and walking on roofs can be very dangerous if you are experienced or properly equipped. Having JFK Lawn & Landscape perform your gutter and downspout cleaning service on a consistent basis will reduce the likelihood of water damage to your property as well as potential runoff damage to your landscape. Don’t be left with high repair bills or collapsing gutters. We remove all debris by hand and remove the debris from your property. We verify that your downspouts are working properly and free from any clogs. If necessary, we will flush your downspouts with water.
