Thornton Lawn Care Service – How can we make you smile?
Do You Need Lawn Care In Thornton?
Hello fellow Thornton Neighbors…and Welcome to Erbert Lawns specializing in Lawn Care and weed control for the Thornton community.
Thornton is one of our favorite areas to work in because we actually live in this community. We’re proud to call it our home.
Thornton Lawn Care…Why does this community love their lawn?
Have you ever wondered why we Americans love their lawns so much? I have worked in this industry almost my entire life and sometimes can’t believe the number of people who call us for lawn care in Thornton. Is it because in a community like Thornton, lawn care is important because the Home Owner Association will not allow you, the home owner, to have a lawn with tons of weeds in it? Or is it that we want our neighbors to have lawn envy and tell us that our lawn is the greenest, thickest weed free lawn they have ever seen? Or is it that we just think that grass is cool and beautifies our property? Maybe it’s because it’s not just a lawn…it’s where you and your family make memories. Whatever the reason, we are happy to help you make your lawn green, thick and weed free.
Thornton Lawn Care Can Be Challenging With the Type of Soil We Have
Erbert Lawns understands the unique soil and turf conditions in Colorado. Colorado is full of that “not so wonderful” clay soil that makes growing thick, green weed free lawns challenging at times. That’s why we use a specific fertilizer formulated for the unique Thornton lawn care conditions.
Lawn Care in Thornton Can Be Simple
It’s really not that difficult to have a beautiful lawn. First, just like the human body, it starts with a good diet. The better you eat the better you look and feel…Right? Erbert Lawns uses a high quality fertilizer; we even supplement the fertilizer with other organic matter to help increase the quality of the fertilizer. Sure it may cost us more, but the long term results are outstanding.
Best Watering Practices for Lawn Care in Thornton
After you feed the lawn some high quality fertilizer, you need to give it a drink. Lawns love water and need a lot of it, again, just like us humans. The amount of water your lawn needs depends on the time of year, the temperature and the amount of sunlight it receives during the day. Your lawn will tell you when it’s thirsty…Just take a look, your lawn can talk to you. If your grass is thirsty, it will start to look peaked or an undesirable green color. If it looks like it needs water, the lawn probably does. As a general rule when setting up your sprinkler system, I recommend you run the small spray sprinkler heads 15 minutes a zone twice a day, three days a week and the large rotary sprinkler heads 30 minutes a zone twice a day three, days a week. Remember that is just a starting point and will depend on the factors listed above. The watering part of your lawn is where we rely on you, the customer heavily. You’re the only one that can control the lawn watering schedule, while we’re happy to do the lawn care.
Thornton Aeration Using Our Core & Liquid Aeration Services
Thornton lawns get compacted all year long from snow, activities, and a variety of things. This compact soil prevents water and nutrients from properly reaching your lawn’s root system. Core aeration is done by pulling 2″-3″ plugs from the ground to loosen it up. Liquid aeration is done with a product that is sprayed over the lawn. This creates a bunch of microscopic holes. These tiny holes make your lawn a sponge for nutrients.
In the past, we only offered core aeration however liquid aeration is a new capability for our Thornton aeration service. We think liquid aeration works better for your lawns for the long term so we recommend it over core.
Thornton Lawn Care Mowing Education
Next is proper mowing. The longer you cut the grass, the healthier the grass plant will be. A normal cutting height is between 2 1/2” – 3 1/2”. On the lower end of the cutting height, the lawn will have that crisp clean cut, but also require more water and not have that super dark green color. At 3 1/2”, the lawn will be super healthy and super green requiring less water, but will look a little rough or uneven at times because it is cut so tall. For the best looking lawn in Thornton, I recommend cutting at 3”. It’s a nice compromise between a healthy lawn and a good looking cut. Also, be sure to keep your mower blade sharp so you get a nice clean cut on the tip of the grass blade instead of a tear which causes that white tip look on your lawn.
What About Weed Control Along With Thornton Lawn Care Services?
Oh yes weeds. For our lawn care customers at Erbert Lawns, weeds are a big concern. Most people don’t want weeds in their lawn especially dandelions. We do treat the lawn for weeds every time we visit your property. Depending on the density of the weeds, we will spot treat or blanket treat the lawn to eliminate any unwanted weeds. The best way to fight weeds is to plan for them before they pop out of your lawn. We do this by getting your lawn healthy with great fertilizer, great watering and great mowing practices because a healthy lawn will fight out weeds on its own. There is only so much space in the lawn and a healthy lawn will kick your weeds butt and send them packing to your neighbor’s yard. The last step is to call Erbert Lawns now for the highest quality lawn care services in Thornton.

The guys that did the lawn this year did a great job!
Working with Erbert Lawns has been an easy and quite satisfying experience. They arrive on scheduled day without fail (barring rain), and with autopay on file, I don't have to be home or do anything else but enjoy my lawn.
