A Bit About Us

Locally Owned & Operated

We are a family owned business local to Harford County with over 30 years of experience growing grass and controlling weeds & turf disease.  ​

Many factors go into a healthy green lawn, which can be influenced by the local climate. The type of turfgrass and weeds native to the area, soil conditions, rainfall, and temperature are just a few of the things that will affect the appearance of your lawn. Amazing Grass knows the Maryland environment and will provide a specific program and recommendations to make your lawn healthy and green.  We take pride in our service and provide a complimentary soil test to each of our program customers to ensure that the right services and products are used for the healthiest turf.

 

Turf is our passion, results are our goal.  If for any reason you are unhappy with our lawn care service we will come back to your home or business for a free service call in-between applications, no questions asked.

What Makes Us Different . . . .

  • We soil test our lawns and make recommendations based on the results from Waypoint Analytical. The biggest benefit of soil testing is it provides us with your soil's pH and measures the availability of soil minerals and nutrients.  A soil test is the best way to determine what is needed for a healthy lawn.  We will check your soil every 3 years. 

 

  • To ensure 100% coverage for weed control we spray all of our chemicals.   All edges also receive a full rate application; we never stop short. Normal industry standard is a ½ rate which saves cost but could allow for weeds to surface. 

 

  • Adjuvants are added to all of our chemicals.  Adjuvants provide a consistent spray pattern/droplet size for drift reduction. They also help the chemical stick to the leaf surface.  Once the chemical is applied to the plant it will start working and there is no need to worry that rain will wash it away.  Additionally, chemicals break down quickly in water; the adjuvants prevent chemical breakdown for maximum performance.

 

  • Our Season Long lawn care program is 8 applications:

       3 Fertilizer Applications, 3 Weed Control Application, Grub and Surface Feeders, Liquid Aeration. More detail to come on the           last 2 applications.  

  • The fertilizer contains no filler.  Most fertilizer blends contain inactive ingredients in the bag.  This filler of clay, ground corn cob, limestone, etc. merely occupies space.  We use the highest quality fertilizer available. The initial application for our standard program is an enhanced efficiency fertilizer with pre-emergent crabgrass prevention.  The controlled-release reduces the growth spikes and feast & famine effect that is produced with other fertilizers that are applied at 6-week intervals; your lawn will feed for 120 days with one application.  The remaining applications for the season consist of a new technology of fertilizer which promotes deep greening and provides nutrients when plants need them most.  The fertilizer is  loaded with Amino Acids that are essential for healthy grass.

  • There is actually nothing basic about our basic Grub Program.  We apply a proven grub product along with a surface feeder product that will actually give you some mosquito control for a brief time while controlling pesky insects that want to eat your yard. Other companies charge separately for this service.

 

  • We are locally owned & operated, licensed & insured.  We care about our clients and make it a priority to be accessible, attentive, and helpful.

Fertilization

Professional Service, Professional Results

Lawns that are discolored, slow-growing, have invading weeds, or other pest problems may not be properly fertilized. Fertilizer is important for healthy, vigorous plant growth and development. At Amazing Grass we use only the highest quality products, applied with professional equipment to ensure a healthy turf foundation.

Our fertilizer is different and not available to all lawn care compaines due to limited distribution.  Years of knowledge in the fertilizer industry and professional relationships provide us access to the newest technology and allow us to blend our own proprietary analysis.  The fertilizer we use is renewable & sustainable, has NO FILLER or uncoated urea, it does contain slow release nitrogen, has reduced volatilization, reduced leaching and reduced greenhouse gases (GhG).  The best part ... it works and produces a deep green color from the nutrients that are delivered to your lawn.  The first application in the spring contains a slow release polymer coated fertilizer that will feed for 120 days.  We followup with 2 additional applications; one in the late summer and the final application in the fall.

Weed Control

Turf's Enemy #1

Give a weed an inch and it will take a yard.  

Weeds compete with grass for space, water, nutrients, and light. They can be very aggressive and take over a lawn quickly if not kept in check.  With the season long program you get 3 applications of control. Actually you will get 4 applications... the first shot of pre-emergent is added to the first fertilizer application that will be applied in the early spring.  To ensure that we get the full dose of active at just the right time, we comeback a few weeks later and apply the second shot of pre-emergent with active for post-emergent control. We then followup with two additional services; one in the summer and one in the fall.  As a part of our season long program, we monitor the weeds in the areas that we treat and provide additional applications at no cost.  We have relationships with mowers and often do drive-bys to check on your lawn.  Our goal is to notice any breakthrough before you... we are Amazing Grass, not Okay Grass.

Aeration & Seeding

What's that about . . .

  • Reduce Compaction

Over the course of the year, as a result of weather and standard foot traffic, the soil will become compact and cement like. Reducing soil compaction allows for greater water infiltration and retention, increased oxygen and CO2 exchange - enabling roots to grow deeper and stronger.   As part of our program we include a liquid aeration application that increases soil pore space by combining smaller clay soil particles to create larger particles.  We have realized excellent results with this technology and have been able to lower the cost of aeration to our customers by 50%.  Physical aeration is still important when overseeding.  It also greatly increases soil to seed contact, which is essential for germination of the seed. It is recommended to leave the plugs of soil on the turf, as the nutrients from the plugs dissolve back into the turf and act as a natural fertilizer for the newly planted seed.

  • Why New Seed?

Adding new seed to turf is highly recommended, as bare areas may be the result of a full season of weed control. Filling in the vacated areas with healthy grass will restore the uniform healthy look to the lawn, but more importantly, it will crowd the turf to lessen the ability of invasive weeds to continue to spread in the lawn. Weeds can be fought every season, but if there is never a replenishment of healthy seed, the same areas will fall victim to invasive weeds and continue to be problematic.  It is also important to introduce new genetics into turf through new seed to create improved traits such as disease resistance, establishment rate, nitrogen use, water use, drought tolerance, competitiveness, and shade/heat tolerance.

Amazing Grass will monitor your lawn during the season and make recommendations for fall service if necessary.  We will never sell you a service that you do not need.  Have a few questions?
