SPRING SCALPING

Spring Scalping is the process of scalping the lawn down to remove the dead and dormant parts of the leaf and thin out the thatch layer at the beginning of the growing season.

CORE AERATION

Georgia lawns tend to have clay soils making them very hard and compacted. Our State-of-the-Art Core Aeration service was created to solve this problem allowing reverse compaction and a deeper rooting system for your grass.

FAQ's

  • Our Spring Top Dressing services start at $900 and increase based on square footage and options such as scalping and fertilizer additions.  Our Fall Aeration and Overseeding services start at $250, and Compost Top Dressing/Renovation Service starts around $1000.  All of our services are quoted based on ACTUAL measured square footage (not inaccurate satellite estimates) and a Turf Specialist’s assessment of your property and goals.

  • For Spring Top Dressing we recommend and use a premium screened river sand that is free of rocks and other debris.  River sand provides some additional organic matter vs. mason sand, while also providing a great material for leveling/top dressing.  Leveling mixes that contain a % of compost are less effective at leveling because the compost breaks down quickly.  For 1st and 2nd time leveling/top dressing, we recommend and use river sand.  We have found over time that many competitors who push/offer blended mixes are doing so in order to inflate or justify the higher material cost as part of their service.  The truth is that that the material itself is not expensive, but the labor, equipment, and logistics of providing clean/reliable top dressing material to each job site forces many competitors to use 3rd party vendors to drop ship their material, which in turn creates high costs they pass on to their customers.  We operate our own dedicated dump truck and control our material supply to every job site.

     

    For Fall services, we use NTEP rated and certified Tall Fescue seed as well as ERTH Food Organic Compost mixtures for renovation and compost top dressing work.  Similarly, we buy this material in bulk and bring it to our job sites with our own crews–we do not drop ship material from 3rd parties.

     

    We use premium premium/golf course quality chemicals and fertilizers with all services.

  • In extreme cases where there’s heavy rainfall just after service, some sand may be displaced/washed out.  This can also happen after fall compost top dressing.  In many situations, this material can simply be smoothed back in place with a broom or light rake.  If necessary, Level Lawns can return and provide a complementary wash-out Touch up.  We ask that you notify us immediately after rain if this is a concern and we will ask for a few pictures so we can ensure our crew is prepared to help.  Touchups will only be scheduled/completed after the invoice for original service is paid.

  • We have really debated this one amongst our team, and the general consensus is that while a hot dog is delicious, portable, and includes a meat between bread, we do NOT feel like it qualifies as a sandwich.  What do you think?

  • Absolutely!  We have worked with groups as large as 40+ homes in entire neighborhoods and are happy to provide the same level of hands on service to measure, assess, and provide pricing for groups.  We can typically provide discounts of 10% or more depending on the total size of yards and number of homes in the group.  We make the process easy and ask that each homeowner submit a quote request online, noting their neighborhood/group name via the comments.  We’ll take it from there!

  • We service all over the North Metro Atlanta area but we’re based out of Marietta, GA.  For properties farther away, we will ask for flexibility when scheduling so we can service groups of properties together at our normal rates.  For very large properties/groups, we can often offer additional discounts even out of area.  Request a quote and we will let you know if/when we can service you!

  • We are not able to offer spot leveling at this time, but are considering adding this as a stand alone service for smaller areas.  If you have interest in leveling just a part of your yard or doing a touchup/additional filling in smaller areas, please request a quote and we will advise if/when we can service your property. 

  • The spring top dressing service will aerate and add sand, which in turn will help with the composition of the top few inches of soil and improve drainage.  It will NOT divert water or change topography, so if there is water pooling after rain or significant runoff, we would recommend solving the drainage issues PRIOR to investing in leveling the lawn.

     

    Leveling/Top Dressing will typically smooth ½” depressions in the surface of the lawn.  Lower/deeper depressions will often take on more material and small holes are filled in as well.  Adding excessive material to “fill in deep depressions Most lawns will require multiple years of service to achieve a very smooth surface.

  • Currently, we are focused on providing the best possible spring top dressing and fall aeration, over seeding, and top dressing services.  If you are interested in additional service from our team, please let us know!  We will reach out to you in the future if those services are available!
