Michigan Weed Control:
Manage Summer Annual And Perennial Weeds Now! Post-emergence weed and sedge control with the best protection in the industry! The best method of weed control starts with the proper land-art maintenance program that encourages a dense thriving turf.
Our exclusive selective liquid weed control will eliminate broadleaf weeds including dollar weed and purple/yellow sedge grasses.
Michigan Crabgrass Control:
Cultural Strategies for Controlling Crabgrass. Land-Art nutrients are utilized for proper growth and root development. A thick healthy lawn is very effective in fighting weed germination and growth.
Strategy 1: Avoid establishing turf from seed at the time crabgrass normally is germinating. Avoid any disturbance of a pre-emergence barrier. Irrigate to avoid wilting of turf.
Strategy 2: Raise mowing height slightly at the time crabgrass seed is germinating, lower height of cut and collect clippings during the time that crabgrass is setting seed.
Strategy 3: Always follow good cultural practices; mowing, irrigating, and the Land-Art fertilization program all season long.
Strategy 4: Utilizing both pre-emergence and post emergent products.

Michigan Disease Control: Fungicide Service
Different weather and soil conditions can become favorable to turf disease activity. Land-Art can target disease activity using fungicides as well as helping you adjust cultural practices to prevent future outbreaks in your lawn. Land-Art always includes additional nutrients with fungicide services as well to help the lawn rebound as quickly as possible.
Michigan Core Aeration:
Coring is often called aerification; this term implies that soil aeration is directly improved by the procedure. Core Aeration helps improve water filtration and increase air space. Aeration will provide better rooting, which allows the turf to be more resilient and better tolerate traffic, drought stress, and weed, disease, and insect pressure. Over-seeding after aeration is a very effective way to introduce more desirable grasses, repair damaged areas, and to increase lawn density. Land-Art offers core aeration and over-seeding with exclusive high quality seeds for optimum results. Please call to schedule this service. Land-Art recommends this service about once every 2 seasons for optimum lawn health.
Over-seeding damaged areas. Fall and Spring are both great times to fill in bare or damaged areas of your lawn from seed. Many stressed areas from this season will need over-seeding to completely recover. Over-seeding is also a good practice to introduce more disease resistant strands of grasses into a lawn. Core Aeration can be a good way to provide a seed bed for new seeds to germinate. Purchasing quality turf grass seed for reestablishing lawns or establishing new lawns is critical to the future success of the lawn.
Annual ryegrass germinates rapidly and will grow throughout the summer but in almost all instances will die in the winter and leave the area bare the following year. Tall fescue is a very drought-tolerant, deep-rooted grass, it does however have a wider rougher textured blade. Kentucky bluegrass is the most widely used turf grass in our area. Land-Art is still currently offering core aeration and over seeding services, as well as core
