By Kristen Bosse

Tell us a little bit about your company and its foundation.

We're a family company that opened in 2001, based out of Murrells Inlet, SC providing services for the entire Grand Strand area. I'm partners with my mother Frances Wilson and my brother Robbie Loud. We provide lawn maintenance services to residential and commercial clients tired of empty promises and poor service. Unlike other landscape companies we are easily accessible and have the best guarantee in the industry!

What are some of the services your company provides?

We specialize in Landscaping Maintenance, Irrigation, Lawn and Shrub Care.

What benefits come from aerating a lawn?

Lawn Aeration is the Secret Weapon to making your lawn healthy. It allows oxygen to get to the roots and the soil allowing it to "breathe". Also, Fertilizers and nutrients get access to the root system and water is able to better soak the soil, allowing your lawn to grow.

How often should people weed/fertilize their lawn or garden bed?

We suggest seven lawn applications per year to help create a healthy lawn and eliminate weeds.

For someone who wants to make their lawn brilliantly green, what do you suggest they do?

For the ultimate "green" color in any type of grass, the goal is to create an environment with the most efficient photosynthesis. One key may well be the amount of available iron. Although iron is not part of chlorophyll, iron is essential for chlorophyll synthesis. Lawns yellowish in color may be suffering from iron chlorosis, which can ultimately be lethal to grass in really severe cases.

What's a simple and quick fix to up the aesthetic appeal of a garden bed?

Rich hardwood mulch adds a beautiful quick touch and improves the health of your plants and flowers.

Do you have any tips for preventing weeds and other invasive plants from growing on a lawn?

A thick lawn is the best method for preventing weeds in the lawn. Mow your lawn at the appropriate height and follow a regular feeding program to achieve a lawn that is thick enough to keep weeds from establishing in the first place.

How often do you recommend mowing your lawn for maximum beauty and fullness?

Mowing once a week during the growing season should suffice to keep your lawn healthy. When mowing your lawn, remove only one third of the grass blades height at a time. So the more often the better!

What are some benefits of raking regularly?

Thatch is the reason. A deep raking removes it. Raking straightens out blades of grass that have become flattened. This allows more of their surface to catch the rays of the sun. Standing water can be an issue. Raking to let water in is a smart strategy. Regular raking also allows nutrients from fertilization to seep into soil too. If you use chemical fertilizers, they can burn your grass without regular raking.

What is a simple DIY project that you feel really increases the aesthetics of a yard?

Plant annuals! Pansies work great in the fall and winter, violas, impatiens or begonias in the spring.
