Questions and Answers About Weeds
Weed controls used for things like dandelions are “selective.” This means they kill Broadleaf plants but don’t kill Narrow leaf plants. As a result, they do not damage most grass types, thereby protecting your lawn. Unfortunately, this means things like Crabgrass and Tall Fescue, amongst other grasses, are also left unharmed.
In order to get rid of narrow leaf plants types, Non-Selective herbicides have to be used. Which means they will also damage your existing turf at the same time. This is why they are not used by most companies.
Mowing Questions and Answers
Cool Season Grasses • Kentucky Bluegrass 2.5 to 3 inches • Perennial Ryegrass 2.5 to 3 inches • Tall Fescue 2.5 to 4 inches
Keep your mower blade sharp. A dull blade will tear the grass tips and give the lawn a brown cast.
Watering Questions and Answers
You never want to water at night, the turf could become more susceptible to diseases.
General Questions and Answers
Difficult to control weeds like Oxalis may take several treatments. Of course, weeds also need time to dry out and break down before they dissipate. Because of this, twisting and curling are the appropriate signs that weed controls are working within 10-14 days after we visit.
If you ever have a question or concern regarding your lawn, feel free to call and we’ll be happy to take care of you.
Think about how hard the ground is coming out of the hot summer months. Soils are hard and compacted. Root systems are weakened from drought stress. For them to recover and rebuild before next spring they need air, water, and fertilizer!
Aeration reduces soil compaction by removing thousands of soil plugs. As a result, oxygen, water, and nutrients can flow easily to the root zone. Thereby stimulating root development for a thicker lawn.

Our commercial grade lawn care equipment is calibrated to deliver the proper amount of fertilizer and weed control to your lawn based on the lawns square footage.
Your technician is trained to walk at a specific pace for the equipment to deliver the proper amount of product per 1,000 square feet of turf. Walking too slow will deliver too much product to the turf and could result in burning the lawn.
When we are finished we’ll also take the time to leave notes and suggestions that will benefit your lawn.
Pest Control / Bug Barriers Questions and Answers
Typically a barrier will see a residual of up to 28 days. The trick is managing insect populations to levels that aren’t a nuisance. As a result, we recommend coming out after 4 weeks for best results.
