Lawn or core aeration allows air to reach the sub-surface and the grass roots embedded in the soil. Aeration machines remove small "cores" from your lawn which helps loosen the soil and turf areas. Grass requires soil as base which can easily become compacted and thinner due to general lawn traffic (walking, riding bikes and/or children playing).
By restricting air circulation, the roots are unable to absorb the ideal amounts of oxygen. As with all plants, oxygen is vital to their growth, vitality, health and appearance. This inability for roots to develop can potentially mean the soil will produce poor conditions for your lawn and grass.
Again, we highly recommend lawn aeration to enhance your turf and its root system thus providing you with the best looking lawn possible. Here are some additional benefits:
Have you just worked hard cutting down an unwanted tree or trimmed some low-hanging branches? We can chip and remove this debris, especially when the debris is often times too large for your trash removal or waste station to handle.
Here at Lynch Landscape & Tree Service, Inc., we have several chippers that can handle branches and limbs up to 18 inches in diameter. By feeding the limbs and brush into a chipper, we can turn the debris into small chips and remove them off your property.
Compost provides organic, slow release nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. These beneficial micro-organisms improve soil quality and create a healthier lawn which requires less water. In addition, this organic approach provides enhanced turf growth and enriched color. Ultimately by using compost as part of your fall lawn service, you can build grass density and thatch which in turn will help reduce the amount of weeds in your lawn.
Over periods of time, small pieces of grass and roots die which gather just below and above the soil in your lawn. This organic matter is called thatch and in limited amounts can help your turf. However, if too much thatch is created and the naturally occurring process cannot break it down, this unintended barrier can prevent your lawn from receiving the air, water and nutrients it requires for the development of roots.
We have dethatching machines that look similar to a lawn mower. Instead of a blade for cutting crass, the power rakes will comb and knife your lawn with "teeth" and that remove the thatch. The remaining thatch or debris is generally raked afterwards. This also allows a perfect time to lay additional seed in poor performing areas.
Undoubtedly the leaves will fall from your tree. You decide what happens next. When we are involved we consult you on your preferences to ensure our crews provide a quality fall clean up as every property is different and every homeowner has different preferences.
During a fall clean up we clear leaves and small debris off the lawn, property and hard surfaces. Using power leaf blowers, rakes, tarps and any other necessary tools we remove as many fallen leaves as possible from the property or blow them to a desired location.
We strongly recommend not leaving too many fallen leaves in your yard. In areas around the foundation you might find that mice, rats and other rodents have found their way to a new home for the winter. Please know that mice can also be a health hazard as mice and ticks can carry Lyme disease.
Additionally, most perennials can be trimmed or cut back in the fall which can be done as a separate service if requested or necessary.
We have large quantities of firewood and can deliver your seasoned firewood usually within 24-48 hours. Our goal is to offer you hardwood firewood that is well-seasoned and accurately measured.
We stock a mixture of hardwoods which includes Oak, Elm, and Ash. Sizes are 16"-18" (most common) and please specify if you require custom size pieces (ex: under 16" in length).
We deliver firewood to the following towns and cities:
Spring bulbs or flowering bulbs are hardy and usually planted in the fall. Stored within a bulb is almost everything necessary for the plant to flower at the appropriate time in the spring. It is really like an underground storehouse and flower factory. Within the bulb is just about everything the plant will need to sprout and flower at the appropriate time. Split a bulb in half and you will see this clearly.
The central area of the bulb includes small leaves which cradle the bulb and that surrounding material is the scale. We can help you plant flowering bulbs in the fall. And you or we at Lynch Landscape & Tree Service, Inc. can water as necessary to bring a colorful display of flowers in the spring!
Proper gutter cleaning is an important part of regular home and property maintenance. Your gutters are essential in diverting water off your roof and into downspouts away from your home and foundation. Unfortunately, gutters collect unwanted items as well such as leaves, debris, twigs, shingle material and dirt.
Problems occur when too much of the leaves and debris collect in the gutters and downspouts which leave no place for the water to drain. Water should consistently drain away from the house to avoid foundation issues related to soil erosion. Foundation work and repair is extremely expensive so we recommend getting your gutters cleaned annually to avoid any potential damage to your home.
Another issue arises when gutters are neglected as well. Clogged gutters means they are full of sticks, leaves and other debris which can build up and become heavy. The fasteners that attach the gutters to your home are not made to withstand that weight. The gutters, if not cleaned, will begin to pull away from the house over time. Instead of the gutters catching the rain water, now there is a gap for water to escape and land directly along the foundation. Additionally, hanging gutters pose a safety threat as they could fall from a first or second story home hurting someone or causing further damage to your property.
In recent years, Hydroseeding has become the chosen method to establish a healthy, green, and lush lawn. Seed, hydro-mulch, a bonding agent, and fertilizer are mixed together and sprayed onto soil. The hydro-mulch provides for a protection layer which helps lock in moisture and prevents environmental elements (rain, wind, etc.) from washing away the seed. Additionally, since the seed was mixed with water, the seed will germinate much faster.
At Lynch Landscape & Tree Service, Inc., we install hemlock, pine and dark forest mulch for our residential and commercial customers. We use only the highest quality of mulch which contains no fillers and is professionally shredded for immediate use.
Mulching materials are placed on top of the soil surface to improve the soil quality and maintain moisture. As for the tree and plants, mulch is one of the most beneficial applications for the health of tree and mulch can prevent water loss and weeds.
Mulch also helps keep the soil temperatures more constant. Over time it helps aeration, drainage and soil vitality. In addition, mulching provides a beautiful, well-kept appearance and allows for the shrubs, plants and trees to become the highlight of your landscape.
Pruning your shrubs and trees is the horticultural practice which promotes plant health care, vigor, appearance and safety. Pruning and trimming occurs, depending on the plant, typically during the winter and summer months to remove dead or dying limbs. Structural pruning ensures the plant's future viability is preserved. Aesthetic pruning encourages flower and fruit development. Lynch believes in hand-pruning shrubs and ornamental trees, not shearing, to maintain plant form, density and size. Annual pruning is recommended as part of a standard maintenance and estate care plan.
Lynch Landscape & Tree Service, Inc. understands that tree pruning and tree trimming are an essential component to healthy, safe and structurally sound trees. There are several important reasons for tree pruning services and there are also different types of pruning and trimming practices.
Our Certified MA Arborists can also assist you with the different types of pruning.
Cleaning of a trees' crown can include pruning away dead limbs or dying and diseased branches. Every tree is different in terms of size and needs and one of our tree specialists can provide a free consultation to inform you of your options for crown cleaning.
Thinning out touching, rubbing and/or crossing limbs can help reduce the number of branch structures that imped light from reaching your lawn. Thinning a tree by pruning or trimming can also help with safety to ensure the wind resistance in a tree canopy is reduced.
Probably one of the most common practices utilized for tree pruning is pruning the deadwood out of a tree and the trees' canopy. Tree services typically include pruning the dying, diseased or dead limbs as it helps promote both a healthy and safe tree.
Pruning services also are performed on trees as a preventative measure to minimize storm damage, dropped limbs and prevent any large deadwood branches from leaning on or landing on a house or valuable structure.
Do you have small animals keeping you up? Are there branches touching your roof or windows? Pruning tree services such as removing limbs away from your house are extremely common. Generally speaking, clearing and pruning branches away from a house or other improvement is necessary to provide safety clearance while not harming the tree and keep it structurally sound. limbs away from a structure is completed by certain footage effective to clear the structure but at the same time not harming the tree and keeping its structural integrity.
Selective tree pruning can provide enhanced views of the scenery around your house – maybe of the lawn, field, and hill or even to improve sight visibility when entering and leaving your driveway. Vista pruning typically requires a professional to ensure all the proper cuts are made and the trees maintains its current health, vigor and structure.
After the winter months, homeowners have their hands full preparing for the spring season. Lynch Landscape & Tree Service, Inc. is here to help you. We provide custom clean up services tailored to each customer and your individual needs. We remove debris, branches and leaves that have fallen and accumulated during the winter. Additionally, our landscaping service crews will blow hard surfaces and ensure that the lawn and turf areas are ready for spring. As specified, we can haul away from the leaves and debris or relocate the branches and remains to another area of the property.
Usually homeowners call certified arborists because they have serious concerns about a tree or shrub. The plant is dying, losing leaves or maybe the leaves are changing colors unexpectedly. Plant Healthcare (PHC) programs strive to maintain and improve a landscape's health, vitality and appearance. As for trees, especially large in size, safety is also a priority. PHC solutions, such as the ones provided by Lynch Plant Healthcare, involve analysis, preventative treatments, control techniques and property monitoring.
Although trees are the most noticeable non-turf feature in your landscape, they share the landscape with grasses, shrubs, flowers and other plants. The same soil supports all these plants as they compete for nutrients and water. Lynch Landscape & Tree Service, Inc. and Lynch Plant Healthcare take all these factors into consideration when developing a program suitable for your needs and your property. PHC treatments can include pruning, fertilization and thorough examination each year to ensure the health of all plants, large and small, on your property.
Lastly, shrubs, trees and plants represent a considerable investment in your home and landscape. With proper care and appreciation, these shrubs and trees can provide enhanced surroundings, shade and other long-term benefits. Certified arborists have years of training and experience which allows them to detect potential problems before they become hazardous or life-threatening. Other benefits of Plant Healthcare include:
One of our Certified MA Arborists can meet with you and provide a free consultation to enhance your landscape while minimizing any present risks or dangers.
Lynch Plant Healthcare provides treatments to control and eliminate weeds which pose serious threats to invade your lawn. We believe in utilizing a broad-leaf weed control only where weeds are present and will be present as opposed to blanket spraying the entire lawn to reduce the use of unnecessary materials.
Our turf management specialists believe that understanding your concerns, evaluating the issues and answering your questions is the best way to achieve a successful partnership. We listen to you as we provide your lawn analysis in order to completely understand what action items and results need to occur so we can improve the appearance and health of your lawn.
We use only the highest quality fertilizers which provide nutrients designed to help grass to grow and stay healthy. By applying the correct amount of lawn fertilizer at the right time of year, we can provide a cost-effective solution whether your lawn is 1,000 sq. ft. or 20,000 sq. ft.
Treatments are applied to control and eliminate weeds which pose serious threats to invade your turf areas. We believe in utilizing a broadleaf weed control only where issues are present as opposed to covering the entire lawn which helps reduce the use of unnecessary materials.
As it relates to crabgrass, we strongly recommend keeping a thick, healthy lawn to avoid crabgrass. We offer a pre-emergent crabgrass control in spring to help reduce the chances of it spreading.
Preventative grub treatment can be applied once a year. This treatment provides year-round protection against damaging grub worms which are very common in Wayland, Weston, Sudbury, Concord and Wellesley areas.
Lastly, the soils in the MetroWest area are inherently acidic in nature. We recommend applying lime to reduce the acidity so the natural soil nutrients, which turf grasses requires, becomes readily available.
Sodding a new lawn installation or lawn repair provides usable turf almost instantly. At Lynch Landscape & Tree Service, Inc. we have years of experience installing lawns, whether from sod, hydroseed or dry seed. There are multiple factors and variables that determine a successful and healthy lawn. These include: preparation, irrigation, soil quality, fertilizer, and light/shade conditions.
To prepare the area, we typically install three to six inches of quality, screened loam on top of the base soil. From there, we rake and grade the soil to create a fine base and area to ensure successful growth of grass and its roots. Once the loam and preparation is complete, the lawn installation can begin.
Seeding or hydroseeding will create a beautiful lawn however it takes more time for the seed to germinate. Hydroseeding is recommend as it expedites the process. Typically it takes one to three years for a seeded lawn to fully develop. Sod is a more expensive option and provides almost instant usage. Sod requires heavy watering as to not dry out during the first phase after installation.
