Lawn John lawn and landscape provides aeration once a year in May 2010 for the cities of Sugar Land Missouri City, Stafford and the surrounding Fort Bend County.  You can improve your Grassís health with a process called aeration. Every lawn whether St. Augustine or Bermuda needs to be aerated at some point in its life. To see if yours is due, consider contacting Lawn John and getting a free lawn analysis. An analysis will tell you about the general health of your lawn and whether your lawn's soil could benefit from aeration. When you aerate your lawn, you punch holes in the soil. These holes allow more air and water circulation around your lawn's roots, preventing fungal invasions, and they encourage the growth of healthy microorganisms in the soil. These microorganisms eat lawn thatch, a layer of dead bits of grass on top of the soil that can choke out your lawn. Aeration also makes it easier for your lawn to grow stronger, deeper roots. A good root system is essential for your lawn's survival in times of drought. Contact Lawn john today to get on the schedule for our May 2010 Aeration your lawn will thank you!


Lawn John provides mulching services for the cities of Missouri City, Stafford, Sugar Land and Fort bend County. Adding mulch to your garden will improve the health of the soil and beautify the appearance of your landscape.

Cover garden beds with a layer of mulch to keep weeds down and reduce the need for water. Annual weed seeds are less likely to sprout when the soil is covered with enough mulch to keep the soil surface in the dark.

When it comes to water, even a thin layer of mulch (nature's moisturizer) will reduce evaporation from the soil surface. Thicker mulches can reduce water use by as much as 50 percent.  Soil improvement: This calls for the use of organic mulches that break down to add organic matter to the soil.

Mulch comes in 3 Colors, Black Brown or Red, and a number of wood typed from pine, cedar and native plants to South east Texas.  When you order hard wood mulch you are helping recycle plant material from you own community.  We will weed the beds, cut in a new edge and spread the mulch all for one price.  Mulch beautifies your property, keeps the weeds out and fertilizes your beds all at the same time.
