Lawn Fertilizer and Weed Control Questions
1. Which is better for my lawn, Granular fertilizer or Liquid Fertilizer?
Granular fertilizer is better for your lawn, as it is not affected by temperature or dry weather and has a longer residual effect. Liquid fertilizers have to be diluted more by water when the weather is dry or temperatures are above 80 degrees, resulting in less fertilizer and nutrients for your lawn.
2. Do I need to be home when an application is applied to my lawn?
No, upon completion of the application, the technician will place a flag on the lawn and leave an invoice/receipt with a return envelope. The invoice will describe what was done to the lawn, the time the technician was there and any special instructions or restrictions that apply to the application performed.
3. After a weed control application how long will it take for the application to get rid of my weeds?
It normally takes 7-10 days after the application is performed for the weeds to wilt away.
4. Why do you only offer 6 applications while other lawn care companies offer 7 and 8 applications?
Since we use granular fertilizer we are able to put the recommended amount of fertilizer for a season on your lawn with only 6 applications. Better fertilizer gets the job done quicker and saves you money.
5. What is the time span between applications?
Generally 4-6 weeks depending on the application and weather conditions.
6. How soon can I be on my lawn after an application to mow or water it or to allow pets and children on it?
Each application will have different restrictions. Check the invoice/receipt created by the technician to see what restrictions have been checked off for the application provided.
7. Do I need to water my lawn in the summer when it gets really dry?
During periods of dry weather, it is recommended you water your lawn at least once per week. This will ensure that the crown of the plant will not die while the lawn is in dormancy.
