Make your lawn beautiful

Designed to specific needs of a warm or cool season lawn, a program of treatments from early Spring through late Fall form the core of H&G’s Lawn Care Program. Your certified technician will control weeds and apply vital nutrients such as nitrogen, biostimulant, iron and organic matter at the correct time of year. Your turf is nourished with slow-release nitrogen fertilizer as prescribed by Virginia Tech research and in accordance with eco-friendly guidelines. Lime is applied as indicated by a complimentary soil test every third year.

We understand that the key to plant health and beauty is in the roots, so we develop a well-timed and thorough fertilization and weed control plan to care for your grass from the tip of the blade to the lowest reaching root.
