If granular fertilizer is used you may go on the lawn immediately after the application. If liquid weed control is used, we require you to allow the material to dry on the grass before children and pets are allowed on it. The amount of time required will vary with weather conditions. You can always reference the invoice left after each treatment for specific instructions related to that application.
Peace of mind. Most gardeners do a good job of mowing & edging; however, many are not licensed or experienced in long-term lawn care, handling fertilizers, herbicides or insecticides. We are lawn care specialists. We know how to apply lawn products responsibly and effectively.
Mow when the grass is actively growing and mow often enough so you never cut more than one third of the grass blade each time. For most grasses in our area, the peak time for growth is in the spring. You will need to cut it weekly at a minimum until growth begins to slow as we near summer.
Mow when the grass is actively growing and mow often enough so you never cut more than one third of the grass blade each time. Spring is a time when the grass grows rapidly. You may have to mow more frequently than every 7 days at this time so as not to break the “one-third” rule.
Please don’t beat up your lawn by cutting it too short. On most mowers, setting the blade to the highest setting will help the lawn grow longer roots and help keep out weeds. As the saying goes, “Cut it high and leave it lie”. We recommend recycling these clipping back into the lawn.
If you are mowing regularly and not removing more than 1/3 of the grass blade, clippings can be left on the lawn and will provide a nutrient source to the grass plant as the clippings decay.
Lawns should be watered in the early morning beginning after 2 or 3 am. Do not water in the early evening because it may lead to increased disease activity in the lawn.
You should refer to the invoice left at the property when the lawn care application was made. We leave an invoice after each lawn treatment that details all instructions for watering, mowing, and how long before going on the lawn.
Ideally, a lawn needs one inch of water per week during the growing season. Be sure to give your lawn enough water to reach the roots of the grass plants (4 to 5 inches deep). A light watering will be of little benefit. A good rule of thumb is to water for about 30 to 45 minutes in each sprinkler location.
I want to plant new grass seed this spring. Can I plant seeds after this treatment, but before the crabgrass begins to grow?
No. The pre-emergent will also stop desired grass from growing. It is generally better to wait until late summer (mid to late August) to plant new grass seed after a pre-emergent application has been put down. However, there are some special situations that we can help you with. Please call our office to discuss your situation.
It depends on the severity of the problem and the type of weeds. Generally it takes 7-10 days for most weeds to die and sometimes more quickly depending on the time of year. Total decomposition takes 2-3 weeks. Some difficult to control weeds may require repeat applications for control.
