Spring Startup

Happy spring! Have you had your spring startup yet? This is essential to getting your commercial lawn irrigation geared up for the warmer months. And, it gets your landscaping off to a green and healthy start. After a long winter, your irrigation system could become broken just by turning it on due to water hammer. Water hammer is when a rush of water flows into an empty pipe caused by a surge of air pressure. The result is burst fittings, producing geyser-like water eruptions on your lawn and it can even cause your system to fail.

A spring startup from Classic Lawnscape will properly turn your irrigation systems back on and assess them. We will turn on the main water source and get it charged with water and perform any adjustments to the system’s head heights or spray patterns to allow for optimal plant growth throughout the spring and summer.

Maintenance Services

There are a variety of points that should be checked to make sure everything runs smoothly. We provide services that run the gamut of what your irrigation system needs, including:

  • Install batteries
  • Adjust and set controller
  • Charge system with water
  • Check the rain sensor
  • Water pressure testing
  • Check each sprinkler hear for proper operation and coverage
  • Adjust and clean sprinkler heads
  • And more

And, these are just some of the services we can provide for your business’ irrigation systems. So, when you need maintenance of your business’ irrigation systems in Minneapolis, call Classic Lawnscape at 763-780-7231 or Request a Free Estimate.

It’s Core Aeration Season: Learn the Many Benefits


Any homeowner with a yard in Minneapolis understands the need for quality lawn care services. And, one of the most important of these services is core aeration. Lawn aerating is a sensible procedure to practice on an annual basis. Core aeration lets your lawn breathe. And now, the month of September, is the best time of the year to perform it. It gets your lawn prepared for fall and healthy enough to withstand the cooler months ahead.

If the soil in your turf or landscaping is compacted, that means water and fertilizer will have a harder time reaching the roots. This allows for weeds to grow, and it also makes growing grass more difficult. One of the many turf management services we provide at Classic Lawnscape is aeration. This is a technique used to loosen the soil and will encourage grass to grow. We’d like to provide a rundown of the process and a few of its many benefits.

The Basics

Lawn aeration is an essential part of our many essential lawn care services. It is a procedure that utilizes liquid, mechanical or a manual lawn aerator to properly aerate the lawn. This creates numerous holes along the surface of the lawn, about twelve such holes in a given square foot of lawn. This permits and encourages deeper root growth, along with reducing the soil compaction level. Lawn aeration permits water, nutrients and air to directly reach the root system.

More than providing a more attractive lawn, lawn aeration encourages deeper growing grass roots and thickens up the grass itself. Holes created by the process hold water which will soften up compacted soil and allow clay soils a greater amount of room to breathe and expand.

The Add-Ons

There are several lawn care services and procedures which go directly along with lawn aeration. Some of these include fertilizing, thatching, liming and seeding.

The Benefits

There are a variety of advantages to choosing fall lawn aeration, including:

  • Alleviates damage caused by droughts
  • Reduces compaction of the soil
  • Betters the drainage of water and decreases runoff
  • Limits the development of thatch
  • Permits water, air and nutrients to directly reach the roots

Overall, utilizing a lawn core aerator is the most efficient means of swiftly improving the topsoil’s health. In many regions of the country, newer lawns are typically put in on top of hard clay. Core lawn aerators are capable of increasing the speed of the soil integration by promoting grass and root growth.
