Landscape Drainage

We put water in it’s place!

The Best Thing you can do for your lawn, trees, and landscape is to have an irrigation system equipped with proper drainage!

Water is essential for turf, trees, and landscapes in general. While water is essential, more is not always better! Proper drainage is just as important as irrigating.

Standing water, erosion, or a soggy yard could be a sign that you have a drainage problem.

Drainage refers to the natural or manmade removal of a surface’s water and subsurface water to prevent waterlogging. There are a variety of solutions that can be implemented based on your landscape’s specific needs. These include French drain, dry well, a ‘creek bed’ or swale, or installing drainpipes.

Let our landscape professionals inspect your yard and suggest the best solution for proper drainage.

Leaf Removal & Fall Cleanup

With our high-powered mowers/blowers and ninja like raking skills we can quickly leave your lawn leaf and debris free. We offer affordable pricing to go along with our excellent quality of work and attention to detail. Our typical spring and fall cleanup includes removing leaves and pine needles along with other plant debris from the lawn, flower beds, porches, patios, and all other hard to reach areas.

Removing leaves from the lawn is a critical task that must be done to prepare your lawn for winter dormancy. If leaves and other debris are left on the lawn can lead to mold and other lawn diseases which can damage your lawn and landscape.

The task of removing leaves from your lawn can be arduous and time consuming. We understand that your ideal Autumn is not spending evenings and weekends for 4 to 6 weeks raking leaves and filling dozens of bags then to hauling them to the compost dump site.

Save your time and sanity this Fall, allow our team to do all the dirty work at your residence or commercial property in Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, or Norfolk.

Sod Installation

Whether you are a new homeowner or simply repairing your home’s landscape, it is essential to choose the best sod installation company for the job. Extra Mile Lawn Care provides long-lasting solutions and improvements by providing high-quality grass from the start.

Sod, unlike grass seed, provides you with an intact lawn immediately. You don’t have to wait while it grows. Plus, you don’t have to water it as regularly as grass seed.

With sod, you also minimize concerns about weed control because it is weed-free. It is also easier for the sod to take root than grass seed offering more reliable results. Sod heat-retention properties reduce heat while increasing the value of your home.

Here at Extra Mile Lawn Care we are sod installation experts. You can learn more about our 9-Step process by visiting our sod page.

Aeration & Overseeding

It’s gotta breathe! Sunshine, regular mowing, watering, fertilizing, and insecticide applications are not enough for a great lawn. Extra Mile Lawn Care enhances turf health and vibrancy via lawn aeration. We use specialized equipment to systematically remove thousands of small plugs from the soil and deposit them on the grass surface. This gives your lawn a chance to  “inhale” rich nutrients and flourish.

Rule of thumb: No aeration = stagnant lawn growth.

Lawn Aeration helps achieve a plush carpet of grass. Our core removal process allows oxygen & water to reach roots, loosens up soil to promote growth, permits fertilizers to seep downward, and breaks up thatch – a layer of grass stems, roots, clippings & debris that decompose or over-accumulate over time.

Aeration reduces compacted soil.  Compacted soil doesn’t allow the grass roots to develop deep into your soil. Deep roots increase drought and disease resistance. Compacted soil can also help develop a thatch layer too.  Aerating your lawn breaks down the thatch layer and allows your grass to breath.

Aeration also increases lawn density by allowing new grass plants to begin growing.  Lawn density is a huge factor in your lawn fighting off the hot Hampton Roads summers.  The denser you lawn is the better it shades the soil so that it does not dry out too quickly.

Probably the most important benefit of aeration is that it allows oxygen, water, and nutrients to get deep down into your soil where they belong.

We highly recommend Lawn Aeration in late August, September or October.

Overseeding is the most cost-effective strategy for helping a thin and worn lawn recover to the lush green lawn you want. By spreading grass seed over your existing lawn, you can thicken up the thin areas, and your lawn will start to look terrific again. (This is different from reseeding, which is when you start over and plant a completely new lawn.)

Over time, grass gets old and needs to be replaced. Worn-out lawns invite weeds. Overseeding is a fast, inexpensive way to help bring your lawn back to its lush, green self without tearing everything out and starting over.

The best time to overseed here in Hampton Roads is fall.
