Organic Top Dressing

You might be wondering what organic top dressing is? Here at DuCotey Bros, we understand the importance of using organic materials such as manure, compost or shredded leaves as a top layer of the soil in your yard. When we use a top dressing, we figure out which organic material will be best adapted to your yard. This provides a large amount of benefits for your plants, from improving the water retention level for your plants and grass to reducing the amount of weeds and soil erosion that can happen. Using experience professional such as the DuCotey Bros ensure that we understand your lawn and know the right timing and amount of compost to use to best suit your lawn longevity.



Aero-vation is different than traditional core aeration. Traditional core aeration machines pull plugs from the ground, leaving unsightly piles on your lawn. Our Aera-vator provides 2 levels of aeration benefits for your lawn without the unsightly plugs. Our heavy duty machine aerates 9 holes per square ft while the rotary bar vibrates the tines to help break up soil and loosen the roots beneath the surface for increased water and oxygen absorption.

Thatch Removal

Thatch is that brownish layer of organic debris that sits between the soil and the green leaves. A healthy lawn will have a layer of thatch as it helps hold the moisture and keeps the ground safe from excessive wear. However, a layer of thatch over 1/2" can prevent the moisture from reaching the roots, which will result in a shallow root system causing your lawn to be susceptible to disease and drought damage. Here at DuCotey Bros, we are experts in thatch removal and understand that there are benefits for your lawn including improving the health and appearance of you lawn as well as ensuring that the water, oxygen and nutrients reach the grass roots.
