Most of the lawns in Columbia and the surrounding counties are made up of warm season turfgrasses, however that doesn't mean that every lawn has the same needs. Soil conditions, grass type and density, amount of shade and cultural practices are among the many factors that help determine the best course of action for a quality lawn care program. What works for a Zoysia lawn in Forest Acres doesn't necessarily work for a Centipede lawn on the shores of Lake Murray. The one thing that all lawns have in common is that a good lawn care program will greatly enhance the health and appearance of your lawn. Carolina Vistas will tailor one of our lawn care programs to your lawn and budget.

Estate Lawn Care
Lawn diseases and insect pests are common problems in residential lawns in the Midlands. Our Estate Lawn Care program provides your lawn with the same benefits as our Premium program, plus added protection from damaging insect and disease pests. This enhanced program includes 10 scheduled visits throughout the year to provide your lawn with proper fertility, weed control, insect and disease control, soil conditioning and ongoing expert analysis.
Carolina Vistas performs Double Core Aeration, removing twice as many cores from your soil as other aeration services. Double Core Aeration helps to improve soil structure, root health and the overall appearance of your lawn. Without regular aeration, your lawn can suffer from excessive thatch buildup, soil compaction, and poor water and nutrient availability. Having your lawn aerated once a year will help promote healthy new root growth, by allowing oxygen, water and nutrients to reach the root zone of your lawn, as well as improving beneficial microbial activity in the soil, and reducing the buildup of harmful materials. Aeration is a highly recommended service for any lawn, so if you are interested in promoting healthy soil and turf, contact us to ask about our aeration services. Learn more about the benefits of Core Aeration in this blog post.
Insects like Imported Fire Ants, grubs, army worms, mole crickets, chinch bugs, fleas and ticks are common pests in SC lawns. Our insect control services can help to keep your lawn, your family and pets safe from insect pests in your lawn. Insect Control is included in our Estate Lawn Care program, however we also offer treatments specifically for Imported Fire Ant Control and Flea & Tick Control. Contact us for more information about controlling insects in your lawn.
Lawn diseases are a common problem for many lawns in the Midlands. Our Disease Control service provides curative and preventative treatments for lawn diseases like Large Patch, Gray Leaf Spot, Dollar Spot and more. Prevention is the best protection, so if your lawn is at risk you might consider our Estate Lawn Care program for a more affordable approach to controlling lawn diseases.
One of the best things to do when planning a good lawn care program is to have your soil tested. All of our programs begin with a detailed lawn analysis, which includes making observations about your soil structure. A visual inspection of your soil only tells part of the story, however, so testing for things like nutrient availability and pH will give us a better idea of what your grass needs. We can collect soil samples from your lawn, interpret the test results and follow up with you regarding best practices and recommendations for your lawn.
