FAQs About Our Services:
Why is your lawn service done monthly when other companies come less frequently?
Answer: We have found that to provide the best results for your lawn, the optimum service frequency is monthly. Going longer than about 30 days between visits, allows opportunities for weeds, pests and diseases to establish themselves and cause the lawn to decline before we have the opportunity to respond
What makes your lawn service different from other lawn companies?
Answer: Three things specifically make us different from other lawn companies. First, we have 2 technicians on each service truck instead of just one, which enables us to easily apply more products each time we service your lawn. Second, we use the best (and consequently the most expensive) products available to treat your lawn so we can get the best results possible. Third, we use the maximum volume of the best products available. We don’t minimize out treatments. So, you could say we use more man power, to apply the maximum amount of the best products available to treat your lawn!
You say you apply fertilizer every month, isn’t that too much?
Answer: Most other lawn companies apply two or three major applications of fertilizer per year. We feel there is a better way! Instead of applying fertilizer in large doses a few times a year, we apply much smaller doses of fertilizer every single month. This spreads the nutrients out evenly throughout the year resulting in a healthier lawn.
Do you come every month, even in the winter?
Answer: Yes. There are important applications that need to be made in the cool part of the year even when the grass isn’t actively growing. Mole crickets and disease are two problems that occur year round. If either of these two problems are active over the winter and not treated, they can have a significant impact on your lawn the following spring. In addition to mole cricket and disease activity, winter weeds need to be controlled as well. Also the application potassium, over the winter helps the root system store energy for the grass when it comes out of dormancy next spring.
Am I obligated to a contract?
Answer: No. You may keep your service as long as you feel it is beneficial for you and can cancel it at any time. We want to make sure everyone who uses our service is completely happy with it.
If you are servicing my lawn is there anything else I need to do to keep it healthy?
Answer: Yes. We take care of all fertilizing, treating for pests, weeds and diseases. You will need to make sure the irrigation system is operating correctly. You also may need to occasionally perform some mechanical maintenance such as dethatching, aeration or top dressing. We can advise you on when these procedures are necessary and coach you on how to perform them yourself or refer you to a reliable company who can do it for you.
If I have you servicing my lawn and I see something about my lawn that concerns me, what should I do?
Answer: Call us! We are happy to come out and check on any concerns you may have between treatments. We would much rather have the opportunity to head off a problem early than deal with a bigger issue later on.
Do you customize your treatments for each lawn?
Answer: Yes. Every lawn needs basic applications of nutrients, weed and preventative insect control which we apply every month. Beyond those basic applications, we apply specialized nutrients, herbicides, insecticides and fungicides based on the needs of each individual lawn when we service it.
How quickly should I see the results of your treatments?
Answer: The speed of results from our treatments will vary depending on the condition of your lawn when we begin service and the problem(s) we are treating. For example, results from weed treatments can usually be noticed by the first or second treatment, but if there has been severe decline in the lawn, it may take an entire growing season to start to see a turnaround.
Will I ever be charged extra for anything?
Answer: No!!!Rarely do we ever need to charge extra for anything we do. If that is ever the case, we will discuss it with you before we do anything.
Do you offer any discounts?
Answer: Yes. We offer a discount for paying one year in advance. We will give you 12 months of service for the price of 11!
Do I need to be concerned about my pets with your treatments?
Answer: We always recommend that you keep your pet off the lawn after treatment until it dries. We have done tens of thousands of lawn treatments and have never had a customer report to us a problem with their pet.
Can you let me know before you come service my lawn?
Answer: Yes. We can put you on a “call ahead” list so you can be notified before we come to service your home.
Do you treat for weeds even in the heat of the summer?
Answer: Yes. Some companies shy away from treating weeds when the temperature gets hot for fear of injuring the lawn. We have fine tuned our herbicide treatments enabling us to treat weeds year round.
Are there any weeds or pests you cannot control?
Answer: Very few. If your lawn happens to have an issue that cannot be corrected with our treatments, we will discuss that with you before we proceed with your service.
Do your treatments do anything for mushrooms growing in my yard?
Answer: No. Mushrooms grow off decaying roots and stumps under the ground. Although they are a fungus, they are not affected by the same fungicides we use to treat lawn diseases.
Do your treatments do anything for animal pests like moles and armadillos?
Answer: No. Although moles and armadillos feed on insects in the soil, it is not possible to irradiate every insect in the soil. Even if it were possible, it would not be responsible since most soil insects are beneficial, including earthworms, which happens to be a favorite food of both moles and armadillos.
Can I add another service or upgrade later if I choose to?
What payment options do you offer?
Answer: We accept all major credit cards, you can pay on line through our web site or we can bill you through the mail.
