April Is National Lawn Care Month!

Your Grass Is Always Greener With Castle Point

Homeowners in the New Jersey area are getting excited. Why? Because the calendar page has turned and the first signs of spring have finally arrived. We’ve entered Daylight Savings Time, put away our snow shovels and dusted off our lawn chairs—all in anticipation of those warmer April days ahead. Speaking of April, did you know it is National Lawn Care Month? It’s true! This means there’s no better way to celebrate than with a call to Castle Point Landscape Design to schedule your spring lawn care service.

Healthy Lawns 101

Everyone delights in a lush, green, attractive lawn. It’s a great space for kids to play, dogs to frolic and adults to entertain. But lest we forget—a well-cared-for lawn offers more than just aesthetics. A lawn that is professionally maintained can provide environmental benefits, as well. That’s right. According to The Lawn Institute, a healthy lawn with natural grass can:

  • Increase property value
  • Filter rainwater to reduce acidity
  • Produce oxygen and clean the atmosphere
  • Cool the air
  • Store carbon
  • Trap more than 12 million tons of dust and dirt annually
  • Relieve stress
  • Control soil erosion
  • … And so much more!

At Castle Point, we care about your lawn and want to do our part to help your grass sustain the environment and provide you with landscape satisfaction.

Lawn fertilization: When applied properly (and we will) a high-quality fertilizer will provide your lawn with all of the essential nutrients it needs for healthy growth.

Disease management: The crew at Castle Point Landscape Design has been fighting fungal disease and other lawn diseases for years. Don’t ignore a diseased lawn. Call us to nip it in the bud early so you can enjoy a fresh lawn all season.

Lawn renovation and restoration: Is your lawn riddled with dead spots, bare areas or weeds? Say no more! Our lawn restoration and renovation experts can bring it back to life with our green thumb repairs.

Aeration: An effective process for New Jersey residents is yearly aeration. This involves making small holes in your lawn to allow air, moisture and nutrients to penetrate the roots below the surface. It produces a stronger, healthier lawn because the roots tend to grow more deeply.

Over-seeding: Typically done in tandem with aeration, over-seeding is the process of using a broadcast spreader to apply grass seed over the ground’s surface. This technique allows the seeds to drop below the surface for a better rate of germination.

Slit-seeding: Similar to over-seeding, slit-seeding uses a machine with knife blades to cut “slits” in your lawn. The larger slits allow grass to drop even deeper below the surface—increasing the rate and chance of better growth.
