Total Lawn Renovation

Most lawns if properly cared for will have a long and healthy life. But sometimes older lawns will start to show some wear and tear form people, pets, drought conditions, weeds, foreign grasses, and the elements. Lawn renovation is the process of repairing your lawn from simple repairs such as dead spots, to more complex problems that may require replanting.  Country Club Lawn and Tree Specialists, Inc has specialized in lawn renovations for the past 15 years. If you are considering renovating your lawn, contact the experts first. Let us guide you the process step by step.

Some of the most common signs that your lawn may need renovation:

Approximately 20-40% of the lawn is dead or has very sparse growth. This may be due to a variety of factors such as low soil fertility, drought and heat, insect damage, poor mowing practices, disease, moderate soil compaction, or increasing shade and competition from growing trees.


Step One

Country Club Lawn and Tree Specialists, need to apply a non-selective herbicide to eliminate the undesirable grasses and weeds from your lawn. In some instances this process is not necessary and the actual seeding process can begin.


Step Two

We will double-pass aerate your lawn to help it breathe.


Step Three

Next step, we will use a piece of equipment specifically designed for renovating lawns to slice the soil and establish a seedbed. This process allows the seed to make direct contact with the soil, so proper germination can occur. To encourage germination and insure a healthy start for the seeding turf, we’ll apply a special “starter” fertilizer. This fertilizer is formulated specifically for newly seeded areas and contains just the right balance of nutrients for young grass plants.


Step Four

Now it will be time for the most important step of all – water. Your lawn renovation will be successful only if the area is properly and consistently watered for four to six weeks following seeding. Don’t worry, we’ll provide you with complete instructions.


Finally

You will see continuous development and improvement over a period of about 4-12 weeks. Once the lawn is established, it is very important to maintain it correctly. Proper mowing, watering and fertilization will be key. In time, broadleaf weeds will be treated accordingly based on turf development.

  • We called Country Club after a few friends highly recommended their services. Lisa Matter came out to our house & we spent an hour or so walking our yard & discussing any problems she saw & the treatment program she recommended for us. She was VERY knowledgeable & answered EVERY question I threw at her… (and there were MANY)! Needless to say, after Lisa’s visit & seeing the results that our friends had with their lawns…We signed up for our 1st season of treatment. Lisa repeatedly followed up with us & made sure we were comfortable w/ the quoted price given w/o being overbearing. After only ONE application so far, we can tell a HUGE difference compared to my “do-it-myself” ways. If things look this good with only one application? I can’t wait to see the results after a FULL season’s program!

  • My yard has never looked better. I used to do all my lawn fertilizing and seeding myself. It took a lot of time – and money – I have found with Country Club – I get more service and better treatment than I could ever have done myself. No more aggravation on how much or when to apply. They are the best!

  • With the help of Country Club Lawn and Tree our funeral home received the Appearance Award for the City of Wood River. The reason I say it was with their help is because our lawn went from ok to fabulous with the help of Country Club’s precise applications and dedicated staff. We continue to contract with them year after year and couldn’t be more pleased. Thank you!

  • First year using Country Club and I could not be more happy. We bought a new home last year with dead sod in the back yard and we were too late to seed/ aerate and really expect any results this year. We went ahead and got rolling with some of the other recommended treatments before winter and again this spring. To our surprise they actually got the back yard to come in pretty nice already and the front is looking green, full, and clover free in spite of two empty lots on both sides of us full of the nonsense. These guys are pros in every sense of the word and their product works. Nice to spend my time doing more family things and less piddling around with my yard this year! Thanks Country Club!

  • This is not a request, rather I just wanted to tell you how happy I am with your lawn services.  My lawn looked absolutely GREAT this year. I received SO many compliments on it! Also, each and every time someone from your company came out, they were very courteous and polite. They always came to the door first to let us know they were there and what they would be doing and if we had any questions or concerns.  Thank you very much, and I look forward to a great season with you next year.

  • I don’t know how you can improve!   What I love best about your company is having the same technician servicing my lawn each time.   Cody just doesn’t  do the application that is scheduled, he thinks on his feet and does what is needed depending on what he sees when he arrives.   He knows his business!  I hope to have Cody back again next year.

  • My lawn was not pleasing to my eye. I was using a lawn service and not satisfied with the results. I decided to give Country Club a try and have been very pleased. Why give my money outside my community , better to spend within. Country Club is professional and courteous. The personal phone call thanking me for my business, made huge in my book!!! Thanks again
