Frequently Asked Questions
Does the service auto-renew from season to season?
Yes! For your convenience, service continues from season to season. For a change in service, please call our office.
Are the chemicals applied to my lawn safe?
All our products are registered and approved by the EPA for residential and commercial properties. We apply the product at the proper rate as recommended by the manufacturers.
Why do I have weeds?
Weed control is a continual effort as regrowth is normal and expected. Once weed control is applied, it will take two weeks and two mowings to be fully effective. The Broadleaf weed control application comes with a 30-day warranty to help any regrowth that may occur in-between applications. Please call the office if weeds become a problem!
How long should I stay off my lawn (including pets) after the application has been applied?
1 hour to allow any liquid products to dry. The technician will leave the time/date of application on the invoice for reference.
How long do I have to wait to mow or water my lawn?
Will rain harm my application?
No! Rain is beneficial for granular fertilizer. The liquid applications require a 1-hour dry time and rain does not decrease efficiency.
How often should I water my lawn?
Watering the lawn is very important and highly encouraged. It’s best to water 2-3 mornings a week with a goal of watering about ½ an inch per watering session. The lawn needs 1- 1.5 inches of water a week to thrive! Avoid watering at night, as it encourages disease growth such as brown patch disease. Lawns are resilient and will go dormant (turn brown and stop growing) during dry periods if not watered properly then green back up when adequate moisture returns.
How often should I mow my lawn?
We recommend mowing at least 1 time a week or as soon as it needs mowing. Never remove more than 1/3 of the leaf blade.
What height should I mow my lawn?
How often will I receive Lawn Care applications?
Applications are anywhere from 4-8 weeks apart, sometimes further depending on different factors.
Why do I have mushrooms?
Mushrooms are a fungus that will grow in moist, shaded areas where there is decaying matter in the soil such as tree roots, leaves, animal waste, and other organic matter. There is nothing we can apply to kill/prevent mushrooms. We recommend kicking the heads off or mowing over them. Mushrooms are actually an indication of healthy soil!
Why do I have moss?
Moss is a shallow-rooted plant that spreads by spores and causes no harm to the lawn. You will find moss colonies in moist, dark areas. There is nothing we can apply to moss to kill it.
Will the Grub Control help with moles?
No! The mole’s main diet is an earthworm so eradicating the grubs will not stop the moles. Trapping is the most effective way of controlling moles. We recommend the Grub Control solely to prevent grub damage to the turf because grubs feed on the root system of the turf.
Can violets be killed?
Violets are very difficult to control. At this time, there is no product on the market that will eradicate them, but we can shrink the foliage after consistent applications. Please call the office if you wish to discuss violets in detail.
Does the lawn care program include weeds in my flower beds?
No! We do offer a Bed Weed Control program at a separate cost. Please call the office to request an estimate.
Is seeding included in the lawn care program?
No! We do offer seeding upon request at an additional cost. There is typically a wait list for seeding due to high demand.
