Gaining a basic understanding of the essential lawn care terms will not only help you better understand your Boynton Beach-area lawn, its requirements and its composition, but it will also help you find the services and treatments you need when your lawn’s health needs a boost.

The Essential Lawn Care Terms for Boynton Beach Homeowners
The more you learn about lawn care, the more you learn that it is extremely wide-reaching, utilizing aspects of chemistry and biology while requiring a dedicated vocabulary all to itself. Here are some of the essential lawn care terms that will help you gain a more thorough understanding of our services, as well as your lawn’s health:
Fertilization – Fertilization is one of our most popular treatments, which entails supplementing your soil with a nutrient-rich fertilizer to boost your lawn’s nutrient density and create an environment more conducive to growth.
Pre-Emergent Weed Control – At Lawn Doctor of Boca Raton-Delray Beach-Boynton Beach, we offer several weed control treatments. Our pre-emergent weed treatment provides preventative maintenance to keep weeds at bay.
Soil Profile – Your lawn’s soil profile is its complete set of the characteristics that make up its composition. Soil type, mineral content and several other factors make up your lawn’s unique soil profile.
Thatch – Thatch is the combination of dead grass and plant matter that can build up in and be a hazard to your lawn. A small amount of thatch in the upper layers of your grass is normal, but excessive thatch can block oxygen and heat from permeating your lawn, causing both short and long-term damage if left unaddressed.
