Lawn Care


ENVIRONMENTALLY RESPONSIBLE OPTIONS FOR YOUR LAWN


 Hertzler & George is proud to offer Williamsburg’s only lawn care program certified by the Chesapeake Club . The Chesapeake Club provides guidelines for fertilizing that ensure the growth of strong, healthy grass – while keeping excess nutrients out of the Bay. Offering this program is a commitment that H&G has made to our community and to our environment. If you’re not already on the program, may we serve you too? Together we can make a huge difference. 

 

LAWN FERTILIZATION PROGRAMS


The key to plant health and beauty is in the roots. Most commercial and homeowner lawn care programs ignore this fact. Not Hertzler & George. With an emphasis on organic matter and caring for the entire plant, H&G's series of well-timed and thorough applications yields a beautiful and environmentally healthy lawn that will be the envy of the neighborhood.

WEED CONTROL


Keeping weeds at bay is a homeowner’s constant battle. A preventative, vigilant approach results in less need for herbicides. H&G is acutely aware of the effects of any chemicals we apply and strive to balance a lawn’s many needs and its environmental impact.

DISEASE & INSECT MONITORING


Insects are an important part of the soil ecosystem but a few are detrimental to our lawns. Brown patch and other diseases are an on-going issue for lawns in our area. In treating these problems, most companies and homeowners blanket-spray the entire lawn with harsh chemicals. H&G has found that a program using beneficial organisms and a system of spot-spraying yields far better results.

LAWN CORE AERATION

Soil in our area tends to be heavy, with a high percentage of clay. When soil compacts, water and oxygen are prevented from getting to the roots where it is needed. H&G's process of core aeration extracts small cores from your lawn to loosen compacted soils. We have found that regular aeration is an effective way to improve a lawn’s health and appearance.
