Fertilization

It is possible to apply fertilizers and practice weed control at the same time. Black Diamond manages weeds with fertilizers that are slow release three times a year (in the spring, summer and fall). As your grass takes in those nutrients, it’s root system will develop and expand to cover any bare spots. With proper maintenance efforts we will get to a point where your grass is so healthy that it crowds out most weeds.

Power Thatching/Aeration

Black Diamond helps your lawns overall health by aerating it once a year. Aerating on a regular basis helps reduce thatch which assist in deeper roots for a healthier lawn.

Gardening

A rich well cultivated garden takes more than seeds and plants. It begins with solid soil cultivation. Next an understanding of shade and sun light plants is necessary. Plant placement is vital. Maintaining the garden with consistent weed control, and deadheading would go nowhere without the proper installation of irrigation. Black Diamond can help you with this entire process or any portion of it.
