Save 10% on an Off-Season Mulch Special

We are now offering our annual “Off-Season Mulch Special” where customers can receive 10% off a mulch service if you schedule this between February 1st and March 15th. Mulch can help to freshen up areas that may need some attention at this time, halfway to spring. We know that mulch improves the appearance of the beds but it also provides much needed benefits to the soil in the area, such as reducing evaporation and providing nutrients. Most importantly, mulching will improve the health of your soil and therefore benefit your plants throughout the season.

By scheduling a mulch service now, you are not only saving money, but you will also have the opportunity to add on services such as pruning and weeding that need to be done before the growing season. We can also remove leaves, clean your roof and/or gutters, remove debris and provide general winter upkeep that will improve your landscaping. Continue reading

Cut Rite Lawn & Landscape LLC is now scheduling and estimating for our off season mulch special. This special runs every year during the off season to ensure your property stays looking its best, plus it helps keep our crew busy during slow times. Scheduling and estimates can be arranged by calling our office or completing the contact us form. We are starting to schedule and estimate to ensure everyone’s needs can be met.

This special will run from January 15th through February 15th. During this time our mulching services will be offered at a 10% discount and that can add up to a whole lot off savings. But don’t stop there, while we are there we can provide weeding and pruning of landscape beds and plantings as well.

Also, now is a great time to get your homes roof & gutters clean and clear of fallen debris. I know many of our customers live in or around trees and although we may have already provided leaf cleanup of the grounds for many of our customers, you may benefit from having your roof & gutters done as well.

Cut Rite is here to help with all of your lawn & landscape needs. If you would like to schedule an estimate or service, please don’t hesitate to call us at (919) 370-2131 or contact us.

Landscape Maintenance Project Boosts Curb Appeal

We recently were hired to complete this landscape maintenance project for a house that is set to go on the market. The yard had not been kept trimmed or pruned in some time and it had become overgrown and full of weeds. The homeowners needed to make the yard presentable to potential buyers. The project entailed trimming bushes and several limbs, edging, mowing and mulching. After we finished with the maintenance and upkeep, the house will show much better and hopefully help the buyers see the home’s true curbside appeal. Continue reading

Frequently Asked Questions about Aeration

What is aerating or core aeration?
Aeration, which is also called core aeration, is the process of perforating the soil, as well as any thatch layer that may exist, removing a core or plug of soil and depositing that core on the surface to break down.

What are some of the benefits of aeration?
(1) Aerating will allow water, air and fertilizer to penetrate all the way down to the root zone. This in turn allows the roots to grow deeper, creating a healthier and thicker lawn. (2) It will also greatly reduce the chances of having thatch buildup. (3) Aeration will reduce soil compaction. (4) If you plan to overseed, it will create an optimal environment for direct seed to soil contact.

How do I know if my yard needs to be aerated?
Any lawn can benefit from at least an annual aeration. Any areas of high traffic that look worn, grass that doesn’t green up after fertilizing or browns easily in high heat conditions, yards with poor drainage that have standing water after it rains, and homes built on poor subsoil with clay are all excellent reasons to aerate your yard.

Did Your Lawn Take a Hit This Summer?

The mixture of hot and dry conditions so early in the year really took the life out of lawns this season. We have seen a variety of problems this summer due to the early eight week drought coupled by temperatures in the mid 90’s that many of us experienced in May & June. Although not that unusual for July & August, for lawns to have had to face this so early in the season forced them to use their reserves early which are normally used later in the season. This made it almost impossible for non irrigated lawns to hold up and survive the summer.

Many of us are now noticing this as we look out our window or enjoy our yards as temperatures cool. As we move into more mild temperatures, it will soon be time to start the reconstruction faze of getting your lawn into good order for next season. As many may already know the time to act is not next season, but right now and Cut Rite Lawn & Landscape LLC is here to help.

Contact us or call (919) 370-2131 for more information. You can also learn more by visiting our Chapel Hill lawn aeration and overseeding page.

Maintain Your Lawn to Avoid Heat Stress

images (1)Heat stress is commonly a problem come end of July and August, but this season we are dealing with it in June! Extended periods of heat and humidity, bright sunshine and warm nights with no rain can add up to trouble. Warm season grasses may love these conditions, but cool season grasses becomes stressed, brown out, wilt and are prone to disease. The heat and lack of rain we are seeing this early in the season are cause for concern and may call for extra watering or professional lawn maintenance. Continue reading
