Do I need to be home for my lawn care service?

Best practices suggest you should cut your lawn at least once a week to keep it from getting out of hand but still allowing natural growth. You should also never cut more than ⅓ of the length at a time.
At what height should I mow my lawn?
Warm season grasses (Zoysia, Bermuda, Centipede, St. Augustine) should be cut between 1 - 3 inches. Cool season grasses (Tall Fescue and Kentucky Bluegrass) should be cut between 2.5 - 3.5 inches.
Do I still need to water my lawn?
Yes! Watering is essential for getting the lush, green lawn of your dreams. However, too much water can be just as damaging as not watering at all. It is recommended to water in the morning before the sun is fully present.
Do I need lawn care year-round, even in the winter?
Yes, lawn care is a constant process. Every season we have specific treatments and applications that take effect during those times. For example, during the late winter we are applying pre-emergents and doing a lawn assessment for the coming warm weather.
How does your billing work?
We provide year-round coverage for a monthly charge based on the size of your lawn.
Are your products safe?
Yes, our products are organic and safe for your family and lawn. For most applications, we ask that you keep off the lawn for about 24 hours, or until dry . The lawn can be walked on earlier than 24 hours but it would be ideal to stay off of it to allow for maximum efficiency of the products.
When do you do aeration and seeding?
For Bermuda Seeding, if the customer is interested it would be in the late spring or early summer. For Fescue Seeding, it will be in the fall, typically around September through early November, depending on weather conditions. Aeration is applied at least twice per year. Usually in spring and fall.
Why are there weeds in my lawn after the first heat wave?
Heat & sunlight feed plants, in this case weeds grow. Also, a combination of wet conditions can contribute to the emergence of some annual weeds.
Does lawn need to be clear before service (leaves, clippings, etc.)?
Yes, a clear lawn, free of anything that will prohibit even coverage of products being applied is encouraged.

Yes, mechanical aeration is the same thing as core aeration.
How often is liquid aeration applied?
Liquid aeration will be applied at least two times a year. Typically this will occur in the springtime and the second application will be in the fall.
Which types of grasses do you seed for?
We seed for Bermuda and Fescue grass.
How do you handle Zoysia grasses since they are different from Fescue/Bermuda?
Zoysia grasses are handled as how we would treat warm season grasses, such as Bermuda. In the spring, we will put a pre-emergent down to help with the summer weeds, alongside the proper amounts of fertilizer during the year, and a pre-emergent application in the fall to help with control of winter weeds.
What's the difference between warm season and cool season grasses?
Cool season grasses stay green until temperatures drop below 32 degrees F for extended periods and can survive subfreezing temperatures. Warm Season Grasses prefer the heat of southern climates. They grow the fastest during the summer, preferring temperatures between 80 and 95 degrees.

Grub control applications are liquid treatments that are applied to the turf, to aid in control of grubs. Typically the best time for a grub treatment is between the months of March-September.

Yes. Although treatments primarily will be liquid-based, it is essential to water post treatment, to ensure that the product is being driven to the soil, where it will be most effective. Typically watering in 24-48 hours would be ideal, unless there has been significant rain in the time frame of treatment.
