Frequently Asked Questions

J. Rick Aeration icon

Seasonal Aeration

Our Deep core aeration helps reduce soil compaction and improves uptake of water and fertilizer for a healthier lawn.

The process of pulling soil cores out of the ground allows more air, water, and nutrients into the root zone of lawns at the essential time of development. Healthy roots will determine the overall health of your entire lawn.

How can you know if your lawn needs aeration?

  1. You have difficulty sticking a screwdriver or a pencil into the soil.
  2. Your lawn looks thin, patchy, or bare.
  3. The thatch layer is thicker than one-half inch.
  4. The clay soil is heavy.

Aeration alleviates compaction from kids and pets, increases lawn density with new and deeper roots, and reduces thatch to prevent certain turf diseases.

Cost

Pricing is based off of square footage.

  • 0 – 2,000 sq ft – $53/application
  • 2,001 – 4,000 sq ft – $63/application
  • 4,001 – 6,000 sq ft – $75/application

Scheduling

We recommend aerating in the spring – April/May – and fall – August/September – since these are the two most crucial times for root development.

Frequently Asked Questions

J. Rick Turf Disease Control Icon

Turf Disease Control (Fungus)

Due to our poor soils in Colorado Springs, many lawns will develop fungus; the most common one being Necrotic Rings Spot (NRS).

This fungus will thrive in areas with poor drainage.

It is crucial that the fungicide application is applied at the correct times to be effective.

It is recommended that this treatment is continued for a minimum of 3 years, but in some case it could require more, as this fungus is in the soil and has been known to be 8-10’’ down into the soil.

Learn about NRS.

Frequently Asked Questions

J. Rick Seeding Icon

Seeding

Seeding is the process of planting grass seeding directly into existing turf.

Seeding is beneficial to fill in bare patches in the lawn. If there are large dead areas it may be necessary to add topsoil.

Due to our arid conditions in Colorado Springs, seeding is often necessary to repair areas of lawn that were damaged over the winter. Seeding works best when done with aeration.

We offer an aeration/overseed/topdressing package based off the size of your lawn. We also offer aeration and seeding separately.

Cost

A price will be quoted for you based on a site evaluation and square footage.

Scheduling

We recommend seeding in the spring – April/May – and fall – August/September – in addition to aeration (see previous section).

Frequently Asked Questions

Testimonials

Great service! When my trees leafed out this past spring they looked fantastic. With this falls fertilization I'm anxious to see how they look next spring. I have recommended you to friends and family.

Ken Evans, Indigo Ranch

 They are knowledgeable, conscientious, thorough, reliable and reasonably priced.  Perhaps of greatest value to me has been their willingness to provide consulting and diagnostic services for various problems I have had with diseased/distressed trees, plants and lawn. There advice has always been very helpful as has the followup to address the problems.  I consider J. Rick Lawn & Tree a very professional operation with high standards and great customer service.  I would unhesitantly recommend them.

William Ferguson, Broadmoor

They did a great job, and all the work was completed in a timely manner and just as Jon said it would be. I received the bill and to my surprise it was less than Jon had originally quoted. That's the opposite of how it usually works! I own and operate a nursery in Colorado Springs, and would recommend their services to anyone.

The deep-root fertilizing is a great way to help establish new trees, and also keep older ones thriving. Highly recommended.”
