The Secret to a Lively Lawn? Dethatching!

A thin layer of thatch is good—about a half-inch or so, which can help maintain steady soil moisture and temperature. The problem arises when thatch grows thicker, and it’s time to dethatch your lawn. Dethatching is the process of removing this thick layer of decaying plant material so air, water, nutrients, and fertilizer can reach the soil better. It also helps your lawn drain more effectively.

May Flowers

The easiest way to find hummingbirds in Oklahoma is to create your own hummingbird garden on your property. There are three species in Oklahoma, two that nest in Oklahoma and one that migrates through. Don’t forget to add a feeder or two because they need to eat every 15-20 minutes.

The Secret to a Well-Nourished Lawn? Overseeding!

Oklahoma’s weather seasons can wreak havoc on your grass, leaving it looking thin and unnourished. Overseeding is spreading grass seed over an existing lawn.

GreenPro Lawn specialists are experts at getting great results from the lawns we service. A simple, consistent lawn maintenance schedule can keep your lawn lush and your weekends free.

Fences & Property Lines

A few ideas and options for how best to ensure your property’s lines can be best created and tended. Potted plants such as arborvitae or clumping bamboo can be positioned to create a green screen around a raised deck seating area. Deciduous shade trees are a good way to obscure a neighbor’s view from a second-story window or terrace. Panels and pergolas can re-create the intimate feeling of eating or entertaining indoors while still enjoying beautiful weather.
