Local Business Owners – Time for Fall Lawn Services

If you own your own business and have a property, you want to ensure your grounds are treated properly and ready for the fall. Here’s a list of things you should be doing.

Fertilization Program


Essential to the health and beauty of your lawn, fertilizer provides a turf environment resistant to insects, weeds, and disease.  The proper balance and slow-release of nutrients to your lawn, as well as seasonal maintenance, will promote a healthier root system and generate lush growth.  Ask about Pro-Mow’s Basic Care, Basic Care Plus, and Premium Care programs.

Early Spring Fertilization (Late February-mid April)

Lawn feeding with a special blended fertilizers to enhance spring green up and root development for increased turf density, pre-emergent barrier for the control of crabgrass and grassy weeds.

Grub Preventative (April-early June)

Treatment is applied to control all Grub and beetle species and their larvae. This treatment is guaranteed for one year.

Late Spring Fertilization (April-June)

Slow-release fertilizers applied for controlled color, growth and second application of pre-emergent crabgrass barrier for prolonged control.

Summer Fertilization (July-August)

Inspection and treatment; Balanced fertilizer to meet the specific needs of your lawn. Evaluation for fall aeration and over-seeding.

Early Fall Fertilization (September-October)

Slow and fast release fertilizers are applied to aid in summer stress recovery and enhance fall color.

Late Fall Fertilization (November-December)

Specially blended fertilizers are applied to enhance root development and early spring green up.

Lime Application

Primarily a soil conditioner, not a fertilizer. Lime functions to temporarily reduce soil acidity, provide plant nutrients, aid in fertilizer solubility, and reduce the toxicity of certain damaging elements.

Weekly Leaf Removal

Offered exclusively in conjunction with our weekly mowing service, we remove leaves from all your grassy areas.  This maintenance service is a great way to stay on top of the constantly falling leaves.

Lawn Renovation


Lawn renovations are recommended when the existing turf grass has declined to a point that is not worth saving.  Pro-Mow will develop a program that will allow you to start over so you can begin establishing your lawn the right way.

Lawn Aeration

grass and soil isolated

Our Core Lawn Aeration Service is a process in which we mechanically remove plugs of soil and thatch from your lawn to allow your lawn to breathe and improve its health and resiliency.

Do you want a greener thicker lawn?

Pro-Mow will prepare your lawn to ensure seed-to-soil contact and maximize germination rates using specific equipment and seed type for your lawn’s needs and conditions. We use only the best quality seed that adheres to the highest National Seed Association standards.

Fall is the best time to Core Aerate & Seed your lawn.

Lawn core aeration is a simple process of removing small cores of soil and grass to allow air, water, and nutrients into the root zone. The biggest benefit to aerating your lawn is to allow sufficient oxygen to reach the grass roots. Heavy soil compaction severely reduces the pore space around grass roots which limits the amount of oxygen in that region. Roots require oxygen to grow and absorb water and nutrients.

Core aeration benefits lawns by:

  • Increasing the activity of soil microorganisms that decompose thatch
  • Enhancing water infiltration from rainfall and irrigation
  • Improving root growth
  • Increasing water, oxygen, and nutrient movement in the root zone
  • Helping to prevent run off fertilizer and pesticides

Why is Core aeration necessary?

Northern Virginia soil has a very high clay content and tends to compact very easily. Core aeration is needed to improve the depth and extent of turf grass rooting. It also reduces thatch accumulation and minimizes its buildup. When thatch breaks down it adds needed organic material to the soil. Within two weeks the plugs pulled from your lawn will break down and return to the root zone as a nutrient. That, along with a seed starter application (which is included with this service) will give the young seedlings the best chance of germinating and surviving to maturity. The results of a successful aeration and overseeding will be a thicker, healthier more weed free lawn.

Core Aeration Bottom Line

The most effective aerations are done along with other needed lawn services such as proper feeding, lime and weed control. Our Premium Lawn Program provides timely applications done by licensed professional technicians all with the Pro-Mow guarantee!

Over seeding


Revitalize Your Northern Virginia Lawn with Overseeding Services

Overseeding is another term for reseeding. Northern Virginia  lawns need to be restored and choosing the right grass seed is critical. The investment in overseeding pays off by reducing the amount of fertilizer, water and pesticides required to maintain your lawn. 

Over seeding is the planting of grass seed directly into your existing lawn, without tearing up the soil. It’s an easy way to fill in bare spots, improve the thickness of your lawn, establish improved grass varieties and enhance your lawn’s color. Over seeding is an effective way to give your lawn a boost and help it look great for years to come.

During the aeration process, we will over seed your entire lawn with the highest quality certified seed.  Fall seeding provides you with a thicker, greener grass, that retains moisture when needed, in addition to preventing disease and damage that comes during the harsher weather months.

Pro Mow’s Overseeding Service is designed to transform your lawn into a lush, green paradise.

Why Overseeding?

1. Luxurious Grass: Overseeding fills in bare spots and thin areas, promoting new grass growth for a thick and healthy lawn. 

2. Resilience: A thick lawn is more resistant to weeds, pests, diseases, drought & shady conditions. 

3. Improved Color: Our premium seed blends are carefully selected to provide your lawn with a gorgeous, rich color and soft texture. 

4. Seasonal Adaptation: We choose seed varieties that are well-suited for the Northern Virginia climate and soil conditions, ensuring your lawn flourishes throughout the changing seasons.
