Stratford Lawn Care

While we offer the best lawn care services in Stratford, we recommend the following DIY lawn care tips.

  1.    Get your lawn a suitable shape and foundation
  2.    Do a soil test to know what you need to add on it for grass and flowers to grow – you can buy a soil test kit on a landscaping store near you.
  3.    Know the type of seed to use. In Stratford, we recommend the following grasses:
  • Kentucky bluegrass
  • Creeping Red Fescue
  • Rough bluegrass
  • Zoysia Grass
  • Perennial Ryegrass
  • Tall Turf Fescue
  1.    Plant during the right time- Normally, we recommend sod laying during spring and autumn. There are cool temperatures and occasional rain which will make your sod root quickly.
  2.    Do not lay sod on existing grass as it might not root and could all dry away. If you do not have time to take away that grass, you can add soil or dirt on it and apply sod there.
  3.    Invest in plants that can stand year-round seasons, including drought periods.
  4.    Irrigate your lawn appropriately.

Our Steps in Planting New Grass

  • Loosening up/ aerating the soil
  • Spreading grass seed on the tilled area evenly
  • Covering the seed with a small soil layer
  • Watering accordingly for growth.

Fairfield County Excavation assesses the lawn soil features to note what nutrients are lacking. We then fertilize the lawn to add such nutrients on it that it grows thick and green. We do our fertilization with high-end spreaders.

Stratford Hardscape Design

Whether you are after having your hardscape designed or repaired, Stratford excavation companies will give you exemplary results on the same, and a good value for your investment. Below are some of our Stratford hardscape design examples and hardscape elements

What is the Difference Between Hardscape and Softscape?

While both are landscaping elements, they tend to vary. Hardscape refers to heavier landscape design elements like stones, rocks, patios, and driveways. On the other hand, softscape refers to other landscape elements like color schemes, plants, and flowers.

What are the Available Hardscape Granite Colors?

Granite hardscape colors can vary from brown to buff and include several shades of green, red, black, and gray. Our team of experts will help you choose one that complements your home’s general aesthetics.
