Landscaping for Joan Hull Clear Spring MD by Grosh's Lawn Se
Grosh's Lawn Service Honors the Memory of Joan Hull
Dedicated Clear Spring Historian passed away last week.

It is with great sadness that we at Grosh's Lawn Service announce that our beloved client, and lifelong Clear Spring resident, Joan Hall, has passed away. Joan was a longtime historian who loved to share bits of historical knowledge with anyone and everyone! As many know, she, along with Linda Irvin Craig, lead the charge for saving Plumb Grove.

I wanted to share a story with you about Joan, and a special project that our team completed for her. The Grosh's Lawn Service team loved working at Mrs. Hull's home. Each week, she made sure that she had treats on hand for our four-legged friends that joined us at the job. In fact, she usually asked for the dogs to come inside her home to see her on days she could not make it outside.

Early morning on Saturday, July 25, Grosh's Lawn Service surprised Mrs. Hull with an Extreme Landscape Makeover at her home. Tom and the team trimmed all the shrubs, pulled all the weeds, cut off all the wild trees, removed dead shrubs and plants, cleaned up all the down tree limbs and leaves in the landscape beds.

We then edged all the landscape beds, removed all the sod from edging and then mulched with Mrs. Hull's favorite color RED! She so loved red mulch and how the evergreen shrubs looked against the red mulch.

We are so grateful for the time we got to spend with Mrs. Hull and wanted to share this story as an example of what landscaping can do for you, and the ones you cherish. A well-designed landscape can raise your spirit and makes life so much more enjoyable and bright!

If you are interested in an Extreme Landscape Makeover, whether for yourself, or someone else, contact Tom today. Email him at or give him a call at 301-842-0062.
Fall Aeration
Do you know what is in this photo?

Over-seeding, combined with aeration, will help thicken a lawn where the grass is thin, or has died out. It also provides the following benefits to your lawn and its root system:
  • fertilizers and nutrients get access to the root system;
  • oxygen gets to the roots and the soil allowing it to breathe;
  • water is able to better soak  into the soil and reach the root system;
  • helps to break up thatch;
  • tight, compacted soil is loosened up allowing the root system to grow.
Did you know that compacted soil makes it very hard for rain/ moisture to reach the roots of the grass? When soil is compacted, most if not all of the moisture, runs off and there is no benefit to the grass or surrounding trees, shrubs or the water table! Plus, compacted soil makes it very difficult for the nutrients (fertilizer) to reach the grass' roots. Aeration solves these problems!

When aerating a lawn, also give some serious consideration to over seeding at the same time to help thicken up the turf and to compensate for areas that have thin turf  or where the turf has lived it's life cycle and died out.

We recommend that the lawn be as weed free as possible to achieve the best possible results from the aeration.

For more information on aeration, email Tom today at or give him a call at 301-842-0062.

Keep That Winter Weight Off Your Four-Legged Friends

Keeping your pets at a healthy weight is vital. Did you know that 53% or dogs and 55% of cats in America are overweight or obese? This can lead to many health problems for your four-legged family member, resulting in increased veterinary costs, and decrease in lifespan, and quality of life.  

Specifically, overweight and obese pets are more prone to osteoarthritis, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart and respiratory disease, kidney disease, and cancer. This means less quality of life for your pet, more medications, more trips to the vet, and a shortened life.  

In order to get your pet looking svelte again, these three things are important.

  1. Decrease the amount of food and make sure you are measuring! Look at the back of the bag of dog food and feed for ideal weight instead of current weight (talk to your vet about an ideal weight for your pet). Remember, spayed and neutered dogs often need even less than what is printed on the back of the bag.
  2. Cut down on treats!  Yes, that means very limited table scraps, and dog treats. Use them sparingly as a reward.
  3. Increase exercise!  Long slow walks are great, or go to the local dog park, play fetch, or go for a jog. Your dog will love spending time with you and will be happy to get those extra pounds off.
What Our Clients Are Saying
