Lawn Care FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

When can we start using our lawn?

Granular products require no re-entry delay for you or your pets. Liquid applications should be allowed to completely dry before entering the treated area. State law requires us to place a restricted entry sign on your property after application.

How frequent are weed and fertilization treatments?

Our fertilization and weed control is completed at optimal timing. During a full season, customers should expect 8 treatments. The season starts as ground temperatures increase in March and runs through November. Customers may join the program at any time, but results may vary.

Do you apply products at every visit?

We use as little product as possible to reach the goal, but have the least environmental impact. Fertilizer is applied at various times and other times herbicides are used. These applications are based around your lawn’s needs and growth targets.

How does mosquito, tick and fly control work?

Mosquito control is obtained by eliminating breeding grounds and adult mosquitoes. Applicators walk your property to identify, treat or remove breeding locations and then apply product to trees and non-blooming foliage. This is completed every three weeks for our standard treatment or every 14 days for our All-Natural option. Fly control is obtained by selectively placed traps. These are replaced as they fill. Tick control is obtained by applying a granular product around the perimeter of your lawn. All services are performed by our sister company – Mosquito Authority.
