Lawn Care in Denver—why you need a partner
Denver’s dry climate and strong sunshine make it difficult to grow grass. Proper watering and aeration are essential to the health of your yard. Lawn fertilization is also crucial to maintain a healthy turf that can withstand our climate conditions. Properly fertilized grass is healthier and thicker, which helps to crowd out weeds. Healthy turf is also better able to handle heavy foot traffic and drought conditions. We are experts at Denver lawn fertilization, we use organic and conventional fertilizers that are specially designed for our Colorado climate.

This five-application lawn service program features a high-quality, locally produced fertilizer guaranteed to keep your lawn green all season long. It also includes a pre-emergent application, along with broad-leaf applications on each visit.
Good to Know – We offer spot-spray weed control
Whenever possible, our broad-leaf weed applications are done on a spot-spray basis to avoid the overuse of herbicides. With spot-spraying weed control, we do not spray where there are no weeds, greatly reducing the amount of herbicides compared to lawn products such as weed & feed products, which we advise against using for the overall health of your trees and lawn, read why here.

Additional Lawn and Yard Care Services from Mountain High:
Revive is a natural, organic-based soil treatment and soil wetting agent that makes the most of available water by improving penetration into the soil. This can be especially helpful when conditions are hot and dry. Revive can be applied without fertilizer or in combination with it. We recommend two applications during the warmest parts of the summer. The results include a greener, thicker and healthier lawn.
Lawn Insect and Mite Control
Turf mites can be very damaging to lawns and typically affect southern exposures and other dry areas. Mites are active as early as December and can continue throughout the winter. The damage they cause may not be noticeable until the lawn comes out of dormancy. We recommend two or more applications for control.

Japanese beetle larva, white grubs and bill bugs are other damaging turf pests. Each has specific control timings. We require an accurate diagnosis before prescribing a treatment program. Our lawn experts are available to inspect your lawn to determine what is needed for control.
Core Aeration simple, cost-effective and very beneficial. It helps to reduce soil compaction, promote root growth and reduce a buildup of thatch. One aeration in spring or fall is good; however, we recommend aeration in both seasons for the best results.

Over seeding sparse, patchy, shady and thinning areas of grass can also be beneficial to keep your lawn thicker, healthier and more weed free. Over seeding is best done in the spring or fall when the temperatures aren’t too hot. To give the seeds a better opportunity to germinate, it’s a good idea to prepare the areas by heavily aerating first or at least roughing up or topdressing them. Watering several times a day so the seeded areas don’t dry out is mandatory for germination. If seeds dry out even just once, they may not germinate. Also, if you plan on over seeding in the spring, you don’t want to apply a pre-emergent herbicide because it will prevent the seeds from germinating. Let us know if you would like to include over seeding with your program and aeration.
