What we don’t do:

- Spring or fall clean-ups
What you need to do:
- Mow frequently: aim for twice per week during the peak growing season
- Mow tall: 3-4″ in height (particularly in the hot summer months)
- Irrigate your lawn: target 1 – 1.5 inches of water per week – including natural rainfall
Application dates will be emailed out prior to arrival. We will always do our best to meet our timelines, however we will notify you if any delays occur due to inclement weather and possible equipment issues.
All granular fertilizers need to be watered to activate in the soil. Since our herbicide and fungicide applications may occur on the same day, we recommend watering the following day with enough rainfall or irrigation to move the product into the soil (about ½”).
With the extra soil amendments and liquid micronutrients being applied, grass will become thicker over time and growth may become more rapid. Mowing twice per week is recommended. Never cut more than ⅓ of the grass at a time in a single mowing. Mow grass tall in the summer months to prevent burnout.
This is the same plan that has provided amazing results for myself and many homeowners.
