Lawn Maintenance

Mowing & Trimming

DSC_0134_copyLawn mowing is one of the most crucial parts of overall lawn care. It is also the most frequently preformed lawn care service. Croy’s Mowing uses a range of mowers with the sharpest blades to keep yards looking their very best. We sharpen our blades on a regular schedule to ensure that grass blades have an even, clean cut, making sure not to damage any of the lawn. Croy’s Mowing will mow your lawn at the proper height to ensure that it will have fewer weeds, more moisture, better stress tolerance, and have an overall healthier look. We also include sidewalk, concrete driveway and curb edging on a regular basis at all of our properties (see Sidewalk, Concrete Driveway and Curb Edging below for more information).

If you are looking for someone that cares about your lawn’s appearance as much as you do, give Croy’s Mowing a call and let us come out and give you a free estimate.

Sidewalk, Concrete Driveway & Curb Edging

This is another service that makes your property stand out! Edging gets rid of any grass growing over the concrete. In order to have the perfect edge along the driveway, sidewalk and curb you need the proper tools. Our machines cut the grass growing over the edge. We edge all of our properties on a regular basis.


Look closely at your yard and check to see how much dead grass, leaves, stems, or thatch you have. If you have too much, your lawn is not able to receive the necessary amount of nutrients it needs to thrive. De-thatching, also known as power raking, is a process of mechanically combing out the correct amount of thatch that will allow your grass to effectively receive its nutrients.


Core aeration is one of the most important procedures you can perform for your turf. We use our core aerators over the entire turf area. The aerator punches and pulls out plugs of soil which helps to loosen the soil, allowing water, air and other nutrients to go down to the roots and improve the quality of turf. Depending on the type of soil, core aeration may be more necessary than others.

The best time to aerate is in the fall, but anytime of the year is better than nothing at all. We believe aerating works best when a fertilizer can be applied after the procedure. By following the fertilization with a healthy watering, you will help to ensure the most benefits for your turf. Seeding also works very well with aeration. By loosening the soil, the seeds are able to get into the ground easier, thus improving the chances of survival.

Core aeration not only improves the roots of the turf, but also the trees and shrubs as well. The easier it is for water, air and other nutrients to get into the roots, the healthier the trees and shrubs will be.


Over-seeding is a key piece to achieving a beautiful lawn. Each year some of the grass in your lawn will die, so it is best to replenish your lawn each year. Overseeding involves equipment that slices through existing turf, placing seed at proper planting depths with minimal intrusion. This is a great alternative to traditional seeding which is more costly and much more intrusive. A professional at Croy’s Mowing will be able to assist you with determining the best approach for regenerating your turf.

Overseeding is a great thing to do right after aerating. The aerating will loosen the compaction in the soil and the seed will germinate in the holes the aerator left behind.
