CM’s Essential, Complete, and Premier packages allow you to combine various lawn fertilizer programs with weed control, aeration, and seeding options — the very basics that we recommend. To these you can add mowing, mosquito control, leaf clean-ups, and more. Got moles? No problem. You can choose from two control methods!

You've built a quote. Now what?

Once you have made all your selections, click “Next.” In order to ensure the accuracy of your quote, we need to verify your turf area and applicable tax rate — your online price is contingent upon the accuracy of these items.

CM’s Fertilizer Programs

Our 6-Step is the choice to feed and protect your lawn all year long! With balanced fertilizer applications, pre- and post-emergent weed control, a preventive grub treatment, and a winterizer, you can be sure your lawn receives exactly what it needs, when it needs it most.

  • 2 Spring Applications
    • Fertilizer to jump-start healthy growth
    • Pre-emergents to help prevent common weeds, such as crabgrass and foxtail
  • 2 Summer Applications
    • Fertilizer to sustain your lawn’s health through the heat of the summer
    • Preventive grub treatment to avoid insect damage (completed with 4th fertilizer application)
  • 2 Fall Applications
    • Fertilizer to keep your lawn green deep into the fall
    • Winterizer designed to help feed your lawn through the winter and promote lush growth next spring
  • Weed Control: post-emergent sprays as needed to ensure your lawn stays weed free all season long

This is our most economical fertilizer program. Your lawn will receive the nutrients it needs during the spring, summer, and fall, as well as our most effective weed control measures. 5-step does not include the winterizer application, so if you’re willing to wait a little longer for your lawn to green up in the spring, this is the program for you.

  • 2 Spring Applications
    • Fertilizer to jump-start healthy growth
    • Pre-emergents to help prevent common weeds, such as crabgrass and foxtail
  • 2 Summer Applications
    • Fertilizer to feed your lawn through the summer months
    • Preventive grub treatment to avoid insect damage (completed with 4th fertilizer application)
  • 1 Fall Application
    • Fertilizer to finish the year strong
  • Weed Control: post-emergent sprays as needed to ensure your lawn stays weed free all season long

This program matches our organic fertilizer applications with traditional post-emergent weed control measures. This one is for you if you prefer a more environmentally friendly lawn care program that is still tough on weeds.

  • Spring: 2 Applications
    • Organic fertilizer to replenish depleted nutrients
  • Summer/Fall: 4 Applications
    • Organic fertilizer to feed your lawn throughout summer
  • Weed Control: post-emergent sprays as need to ensure your lawn stays weed free all season long

This is our entirely organic option. Organic fertilizers stimulate microbial activity in the soil using less concentrated amounts of nutrients compared to traditional lawn fertilizers. With this program, you can have the healthy lawn you want while keeping your carbon footprint to a minimum!

All Organic does not include weed control measures or preventive grub treatment.

  • Spring: 2 Applications
    • Organic fertilizer to replenish depleted nutrients
  • Summer: 2 Applications
    • Organic fertilizer to feed your lawn throughout the summer
  • Fall: 1 Application
    • Organic fertilizer to keep your lawn green through the season
  • Weed Control: none included

Aeration + Seeding Services

This plug style aeration loosens soil compaction and thatch layers — two things that restrict air to root systems and inhibit healthy growth. Spring or fall, you choose what works best for you.

Double plug aeration provides the same benefits as our single plug service, just twice as many plugs. This is highly recommended for newer homes as construction traffic leads to overly compacted soils, reducing your lawns ability to establish a robust root system. Double plug aeration is required prior to overseeding as it significantly increase seed germination.

Overseeding is a great way to protect your lawn. Thick, lush lawns are far less susceptible to weed problems, and turfgrass comprised of different seed varieties are much more resilient to environmental factors that lead to fungus and disease. We use our own proprietary seed blend so that your lawn is thick enough to stand up against weeds and diverse enough to thrive in all conditions.

CM’s Overseed is a must for homeowners that struggle with maintaining grass in shady locations.

Patches can develop for many reasons. Often times they can be attributed to fungus or disease damage. If you’re a dog owner, you’re probably familiar with the damage left in the favorite “relief” spots. If your otherwise healthy lawn exhibits a few of these patches, then our Spot Seed service is a great solution for you. With Spot Seed, we only address the damaged areas, bringing them back on par with the rest of your lawn.

Turf Maintenance Services

The importance of mowing goes beyond aesthetics. Proper cutting height is one of the most important — and overlooked — variables in the care of turfgrass. Cool-season grasses are predominant in our area so it’s important to keep their root systems protected from our hot summer sun. Cutting grass too low inhibits this and causes the plant to stress. Let it get too high and your next mow will remove too much of the plant and cause it to struggle. The solution: CM’s Mow + Trim service. On a weekly basis, our professional mow and trim the fine turf on your property, adjusting for seasonal variables (like cutting height) along the way.

Power raking is an aggressive process of removing thatch from your lawn. We use a machine the size of a push mower with mechanical flails that dig the thatch out of the turf. We mow the turf areas after power raking and collect the debris. Power raking can be done at the same time as aeration and overseed to promote your lawn’s health and recovery. We’d be happy to make a site visit to determine if this service is necessary.

Many of the factors that can lead to disease — improper watering, bad mowing habits, and over-fertilizing — are under the caretakers control. However, even with good lawn care practices, Mother Nature can still play her role. Swings in temperature and humidity are often to blame when fungus presents on a lawn. If you suspect your lawn has been affected, our Fungus + Disease Control service is for you.

Pest Control Services

Five exterior treatments provide year-round protection against termites, ants, crickets, spiders, and more. Professional, certified applicators create an inhospitable barrier along your home’s foundation to keep these pests from finding their way in. Save $15 per application when you bundle Perimeter Pest Control with any fertilizer program.

Protect you and your pets by treating all the parts of your property that may harbor these pests. Areas include your lawn, deck and patio areas, and your landscape plantings — especially shrubs and ornamental grasses.

Baiting: Poisoned worms are placed into the tunnels below where the are discovered and consumed by moles. While usually effective, the results of baiting (dead moles) remain underground so it is often difficult to know when the problem has been controlled.

Trapping: Scissor-style traps are set to intercept mole runs where they stop moles dead in their tracks. Our team will then dispose of the culprit for you. This method produces physical evidence that your mole is dead.

Sprinkler Services

During the turn on process, we will:

  • Check the coverage area and adjust or provide recommendations
  • Performance test each sprinkler head
  • Remove any organic debris from sprinkler heads and other system components
  • Program your system for optimum performance or provide recommendations

During the winterization process, we will:

  • Run compressed air through all of the sprinkler components including the backflow, valves and heads
  • Visually ensure water has been flushed from each zone
  • Ensure components are adjusted for winter to allow any trapped moisture to escape
  • Note any repairs that may need to happen in the spring when the water is turned back on

Hourly Services

Common sprinkler repairs include:

  • Replacing faulty or broken heads, valves and controllers
  • Repairing broken underground control wiring and water lines
  • Diagnosing faulty components like valves and controller issues
  • Upgrading system components to maximize watering efficiency

Leaf Cleanup is performed weekly during the fall for mowing clients. General cleanup of turf and landscape is on an as needed basis. Services are invoiced at an hourly rate.
