Louisiana lawns need attentive care all year long due to the consistently warmer temperatures throughout the year. We typically perform lawn mowing services weekly, bi-weekly, or as-needed. Our prime growing season is March through October and slows down during the winter months, in which service is less frequent.
At Lafourche Lawn & Farm, our professionals provide full-service lawn care, which includes:
The combination of these essential lawn care services provides your property with everything it needs to stay healthy and green annually! We service the southern parts of Louisiana such as Thibodaux, Raceland, Houma, and other surrounding areas.
Our professionals provide meticulous care for your entire property starting with mowing. In accordance with turf standards, we use an alternating mow pattern and cut your lawn by the one-third rule. We will never take more than one-third the blade height during a single mowing. Our mowers are kept up-to-date with sharpened blades at all times to give your lawn the best cut possible.
In addition to mowing, our standard lawn care services include string-trimming in hard to reach areas, edging along hardscaping, fences, and driveways or walkways, and blowing to ensure grass clippings are eliminated from sight and put back into the lawn as natural fertilizer.
Typically, you will find that turf in Louisiana is made up of one, or a combination of several, warm season grasses. The most common warm season grasses around the Thibodaux area are:
Warm season grasses are typically kept on the shorter side around 1-2 inches, except St. Augustine, which is kept around 3 inches.
Improve the health of your lawn while keeping weeds from taking over with a regimented fertilization and weed control program for your entire property. We offer fertilization and weed control for both your lawn and your landscaping plants!
Fertilizing your grass is the key to a greener and healthier lawn since the fertilizer distributes the nutrients (Nitrogen, Potassium, and Phosphorus) that your grass needs to thrive in its environment. Our team will do a complimentary lawn inspection prior to fertilizing your lawn to make sure the fertilizer used is the right blend to nourish your lawn all year long.
Professional fertilization ensures the correct mixture of Nitrogen, Potassium, and Phosphorus is properly applied to your lawn at the ideal time of the year.
Just like mowing, fertilizing your lawn the right way depends on the type of turf. Most lawns require three to four applications throughout the year between spring and fall with an optional winterizing treatment in November to protect your lawn from cooler temperatures throughout the winter.
Our winterizing treatment has high potassium levels, which greatly benefits your lawn.
Post-emergent and pre-emergent herbicides are necessary for kicking weeds to the curb! Each treatment targets specific weeds in your landscaping beds and lawn.
Pre-emergent herbicides are used prior to germination; however, they do not control already present weeds. Apply pre-emergent herbicides during the spring to get a handle on crabgrass and goose-grass before they grow out of control. In the fall, pre-emergent herbicides help prevent the growth of bluegrass and henbit.
Apply post-emergent herbicides to control weeds that have already grown. We can apply this with any other treatment throughout the year as long as temperatures are under 90°F. Herbicides control broadleaf weeds such as clover, dollar weed, dandelion, and plantains.
Thatch is a layer of debris, roots, and dead grass that forms over time as a layer between the soil and blades of grass on your lawn. If thatch grows out of control, it is detrimental to the growth of your lawn, which can cause a number of problems for proper lawn growth and nutrition.
At Lafourche Lawn & Farm, we offer dethatching and aeration services to solve the problem of thatch in your yard! Dethatching uses a specialized rake which slices through the turf to remove thatch while stimulating the grass and allowing moisture to reach the roots.
Core aeration is performed by punching holes in the lawn to allow nutrients, water, and oxygen to enter the soil. Over time, the soil becomes compacted due to weathering and foot traffic. Aerating loosens the soil and helps dethatch as well.
Core aeration and dethatching enable your grass to go through the phases of photosynthesis properly, resulting in a thicker and healthier lawn.
Do you have an issue with ants or mosquitos on your property? If so, we have the perfect solution. With our ant and mosquito control services, we'll apply the proper insecticides that will eliminate existing infestations and prevent any new infestations.
Both ant and mosquito control services are temporary, which means they must be applied a few times per year to ensure these pests stay away from your property. We recommend treatments every three months, or four times per year. Let us help you enjoy your outdoor spaces this year without getting eaten up by ants and mosquitos!
We work long and hard to ensure our customers are satisfied with the way their exteriors are taken care of! Work with us and we'll ensure every aspect of your lawn and landscaping are in good hands.
