Do I have to sign a contract?
We do not use written contracts. Ours is a verbal agreement. You may cancel at any time.
Are estimates free?
Yes. Estimates are free and there is no obligation.
How many applications are there?
Our full program consists of seven applications a year, beginning in January / February and going through November / December.
How often are the applications?
Approximately four to six weeks apart. Our schedule is always dependent on weather.
Do I have to take all seven applications?
No. We will customize a program that fits your specific needs. But remember, the more applications you receive, the better your lawn will look.
Do I have to be home when you do the application?
No. We will leave a flag in the lawn and all the information hanging on your door.
What if I have a locked gate or a dog?
We can call you before our visit. We will contact you before the application to let you know when we will be coming.
Are the applications safe for pets and kids?
Yes. We only use EPA-approved products. However, we do recommend that you stay off the turf for at least 30 minutes to allow the application to dry. Some people prefer to leave their pets out all the time and others pen them up. It is totally up to you.
What are service calls and are they free?
If you are on the full program of seven applications, service calls are free. If you have a weed problem or anything else, you can call the office or request one online, and we will come out and take care of the problem.
I Just Received an Application and …
What if it rains right after my application?
Rain after an application is good unless it happens within one hour of your application. Pre-emergence herbicides and fertilizer need to be watered in to be effective. Rain can affect the weed control if it comes too soon. We ask that you wait four to five days to see if the weeds start to die. If they do not, just call the office and we will treat the weeds again.
When can I mow and water?
Try to wait at least 12 hours before mowing or watering. The application needs to be watered in, but the weed control needs to be absorbed first. Each time an application is done, we will leave information about the application and what you need to do about mowing and watering.
Why is there fertilizer on my driveway and sidewalks?
We do our best to keep fertilizer off the concrete, but because of our commercial spreaders, some may land on your concrete. The fertilizer will not stain or hurt your concrete.
You just did an application two or three weeks ago –why do I still have weeds?
When we treat your lawn, we try to treat all the weeds, but sometimes we do miss some. Please contact the office for a service call. Some weeds are more difficult than others and may require multiple treatments.
Why are there big brown spots in my lawn?
These are areas where we sprayed the weeds. When you apply herbicide to a green lawn, it can slow growth and turn brown. It is not dead – the lawn will regain its green color in a few days.
Watering and Mowing
How often should I water?
Your lawn needs one to two inches of water per week during the growing season. You should water deeply two to three times each week during the growing season if it is dry.
When is the best time to water?
The best time is early in the morning. However, if the lawn is dry, anytime is better than none at all. Avoid watering at night when the temperature is cooler. Watering at night may promote disease.
How often should I mow?
During the growing season, you should never remove more than one-third of the grass blade at each cutting.
We recommend mowing at least once a week.
Why does my neighbor’s lawn look better than mine?
There could be several reasons. First, you might not be watering or mowing enough. Second, you could be mowing the grass too low. If you remove too much of the grass blade’s length at once, it turns brown and takes a few days to regain its green color. Third, maybe your neighbor is retired and has a lot of free time to take care of his lawn. Or, it could be that your lawn needs extra fertilizer or weed control. Just call the office and let us know.
Why is my lawn thinning?
The main reason grass thins is because it is not getting enough sunlight. Bermuda grass needs between six and eight hours of full sunlight to grow thick. Zoysia grass needs between four and five hours, while Fescue needs one or two hours of full sunlight.
