We are an environmentally friendly lawn service and water conservation company. We care about our planet and utilize only products and services that are effective yet safe and eco-friendly. We have partnered with the Carbon Earth company, which produces a sustainable fertilizer. This particular fertilizer builds soil organic carbon without any harmful chemicals that could potentially harm the environment. Their products utilize slow-release technology to deliver soil with higher organic carbon, and a greater soil surface area.
We understand that maintaining and caring for your lawn not only enhances its color, and thickness but helps promote sustainability and overall appeal. In order to develop and maintain a healthy, vibrant lawn, we believe it is essential to follow an annual lawn care program. Specifically, one that promotes deep root growth fights weeds, provides proper proportions of nutrients, and addresses insect infestations and lawn diseases.
We offer three lawn care programs designed explicitly for fescue grass and a fourth lawn care program for our residents with bermudagrass. With all four of our programs, your lawn will be carefully inspected by one of our knowledgeable and trained technicians on an annual basis. Each program runs from early spring to early winter and consists of planned, comprehensive, timely scheduled visits of your property for treatments of needed materials at the proper rates. Our separate packages include the following:
Classic ($23.00/month based on 5,000 sqft)
Pro($27.00/month based on 5,000 sqft)
Elite ($38.00/month based on 5,000 sqft)
For Our North Carolina Residents With Bermudagrass ($28.00/month based on 5,000 sqft)
Is your lawn in need of major repairs? Is it starting to look discolored? Bio Turf’s aeration process can help wake up your dull, unhealthy turf. Aeration includes the removal of small plugs of soil so that your grass can breathe. The purpose of aeration is to increase the amount of water, air, and nutrients that reach your grass’ roots so they can grow deeper and stronger. Aeration is included in our Elite lawn care package but can be purchased alone. Contact us to learn more about our Elite lawn care package or if aeration is right for your lawn.
Overseeding is often done alongside core aeration to improve the thickness and strength of your fescue lawn. Soil compaction can severely stress and thin your grass. This becomes an open invitation for pests and weeds to take over. Overseeding is the practice of establishing new grass to fill in thin patches and boost your lawn’s resistance to pests, diseases, weeds, and even drought. Contact us now to learn more about our overseeding process.
Start conserving water and add curb appeal to your home with Bio Turf’s Irrigation Service. We provide the installation, spring start-up, winterization, and repairs. We can also upgrade your current system.
Installation of the Irrigation System
An irrigation system’s installation begins with the overall design of the system, placement of the pipes, sprinkler heads, valves, and control panel. Bio Turf works alongside the homeowner, contractor or landscaper to bring the project to life while maintaining an emphasis on conserving our natural resource (water). With this in mind, we focus on new technology like Smart control panels. These panels automatically adjust water scheduling according to information received from local weather stations. That information gathered will prompt the control panel to suspend or change watering based on temperature, predicted, or actual rainfall. We can also customize your irrigation system with pressure regulated rotors, sprays, valves with flow control, and MP Rotator nozzles to help you save even more water. Our irrigation system will help save you time, money, and water!
Our technicians will check all the components of your system to ensure it is fully functional for the watering season. Our start-up service includes:
Toward the end of winter, the Bio Turf team will send you an email with your scheduled date for the spring start-up. If you would like your system started by a specific date, we recommend that you contact us in advance.
Winterization for Your Irrigation System
Although we typically enjoy mild winters here in Raleigh, North Carolina, we occasionally experience freezing temperatures. Consequently, your irrigation system must be shut down to safeguard against major freeze damage. Our winterization service includes:
The Bio Turf Team is trained in proper procedures to winterize any size lawn irrigation system.
If your irrigation system is two or more years old, it may already be outdated. Plant growth, a poorly designed system, and obsolete parts can lead to wasting water. Bio Turf can help you upgrade to a Wi-Fi smart irrigation controller, install pressure regulated rotors, pressure-controlled sprays with MP Rotator nozzles, and check valves. These procedures alone can save you up to 60% on your water bill. The Bio Turf team is committed to providing our customers with the best quality products and services.
With one of Bio Turf’s custom installed Wi-Fi smart irrigation controllers, you can remotely monitor the amount of water your lawn and garden receives right from your smartphone!
Unlike a regular fixed timer, a Wi-Fi smart irrigation controller draws on data from sensors, weather forecasts, and plant-care databases to determine watering needs. With this information, it delivers just enough moisture at the right time. Decrease your water bill and check in on your plants from anywhere in the world using your mobile or web device.
When it comes to servicing and repairing an existing irrigation system, the Bio Turf team can handle the job. Our experienced technicians can work on all brand name irrigation systems. Contact us today to schedule a service appointment.

A backflow prevention valve on a lawn irrigation system comes in many sizes and brands. The purpose of the backflow device is to ensure that your domestic drinking water does not become contaminated with lawn irrigation water. Most city and town water departments in the Raleigh market mandate that backflow preventers are installed on every water line to an underground lawn irrigation system and tested annually.
The Bio Turf team has licensed and certified installers and testers that are trained in the proper procedures required to install and test any backflow prevention device in the Raleigh Triangle Park (RTP) area (excluding the city of Durham). Contact Us now to learn more about our backflow installation and prevention service.
