Summit Landscape offers the following baseline services:

Site analysis
​Includes consultation, soil samples, and detailed soil report.​
​All soil samples are analyzed by the Soil and Plant Tissue Testing Laboratory at UMass-Amherst.

Organic fertilizer/soil conditioner
​Applied twice a year, spring and fall. 
Organic fertilizers are carbon-based compounds that increase the productivity of plants. It is safe to walk on your grass immediately after application.

Calcitic lime 
Onsite pH reading determines proper amount of lime that needs to be added to your lawn to bring up the pH level, thereby minimizing weeds and optimizing soil health. 
Calcitic lime is just calcium, unlike dolomitic lime, which is a combination of calcium and magnesium.

​Compost tea
Applied twice a year, late spring/early summer and late fall. Additional applications are optional or as needed. 
Compost tea is made by brewing high-quality compost and other natural ingredients, such as kelp and molasses, in a large tank with water. The mixture is aerated for approximately 24 hours to grow the beneficial organisms and then sprayed onto your lawn.
