Mowing and Edging with Smitty's

We take a lot of pride in the lawns we mow and always offer the best quality and service. Every step is taken to make your yard look its best, from sharpening blades daily to changing our mowing pattern in the lawn weekly. During each lawn mowing, we provide the following:

  • Mowing of your entire property
  • String trimming around all edging, trees, and posts
  • Removal of freshly cut grass from all paved and non-desirable areas with a power blower

Turf overgrowth onto your concrete is natural but can take away from the overall appearance of your yard. Smitty’s edging service removes this overgrown turf and gives your lawn a clean, well-manicured look. The more you edge, the less overgrowth there is. This is why we offer to edge monthly at a reduced rate.

Smitty's Lawn and Landscape Provides the Following Additional Services

A lush, green lawn not only provides curb appeal, it preserves and increases your property’s value. The special services that Smitty’s offers are complementary to our core lawn care packages. Combining one or more of these services along with one of our packages will increase the success of your lawn’s health.

Here in Fort Dodge, Iowa, our cool-season grasses are prone to lawn disease, pests, weeds, and a variety of lawn issues. Two of the most prevalent include soil compaction and excessive thatch. Both prevent air, water, and essential nutrients from getting to the roots of your grass. A process called core aeration helps reduce thatch while opening the way for air, water, and fertilizer to reach your turf’s root zone. This process will help your roots grow and stay strong.

Dethatching is the mechanical removal of thatch on the surface of your lawn. It allows air, water, and fertilizer to once again reach the root zone of your grass.

Lime Application
If your lawn is experiencing weak growth, is consistently overrun with disease, insect infestations, or weeds, it could be an imbalance of pH levels in your soil. Smitty’s lime application will increase the efficiency of nutrient uptake through your root system and enhance development.

Mulch Top-Dressing
Mulching landscape beds is a great way to add uniformity to your landscape. It also helps prevent weed growth, retain moisture and add organic matter and nutrients to the soil. At Smitty’s, we usually replenish mulch annually with a 1-1½” layer of fresh mulch. While 1-3″ is desirable, thick piles of mulch around trees and plantings can be detrimental to growth and should be avoided.

Grub Control
Don’t allow lawn-damaging grubs to destroy your yard! Instead, allow Smitty’s Lawn and Landscape to apply insecticide to your grass to prevent these tiny beetles from destroying your turf. Our grub control can be both a preventative and a solution. Contact us now to find out more.

Lawn Disease Control
Prevent lawn diseases such as brown patch and red thread from occurring with an application of Smitty’s Lawn and Landscape’s fungicide treatment. Proven effective at preventing and controlling disease from damaging your lawn.

Ornamental Bed Weed Control
We know what a pain it is to pull the same weed out over and over again. Save your back some trouble and have the professionals at Smitty’s take care of the weeds for you. We use various methods to control the weeds and will have your bed looking new in no time!

Annual Beds, Pots, and Planters
Let our experts create a beautiful focal point for your landscape! With a large variety of annuals grown at our greenhouse, we’d love to design and install your annual beds, pots, and planters for you in the spring and fall. And we don’t stop there! Smittys can also maintain your beds, pots, and planters by weeding them, deadheading the annuals when necessary, and removing your annuals when the season has ended.

Obtain more information about any of these services by calling 515-576-0985 or contact Smitty’s Lawn and Landscape here today.
