Aeration -

Remember, like comparing apples to oranges, lawn care applications and services are NOT the same. Don't confuse Mike's Lawn Service with cheap imitations. Mike's Lawn Service uses quality products. We're different from all the rest.


Other Services Offered

A program of up to four treatments that provide an insect shield that controls insects from entering your home. We'll spray a 6-8' perimeter around your home, 2' up the foundation and the roof overhang, if needed.

Drill Seeding and Renovation -

We can drill seed into thin grass areas or bare spots on partial or whole lawns. Also complete renovation on older lawns. New lawn installation.

Tree Injections -

Inject product into trees with insect or disease problems or nutrient deficiencies. We can also treat Ash trees for the prevention of EAB (Emerald Ash Borer). We can also spray large evergreen trees for disease control.

Deep Rootfeeding -

Deep rootfeeding of trees and shrubs with fertilizer and other nutrients is very beneficial to trees (up to 25') and shrubs when done in late fall.

Our goal is to treat our customers' lawns as we would wish to have our own lawns treated. We would enjoy the pleasure of serving you.
