It rained after an application was applied, will it still work?

For most products, rainfall before or after an application typically enhances the effectiveness of your application. Water is vital for proper plant health and aids in carrying nutrients into the soil so they can be absorbed by a plant’s root system. Water also activates preemergent weed control and sub-surface insect control. Applications won’t wash away once they are absorbed by the plant or watered into the soil.

How long will it take for weeds to disappear?

Every weed is different, and some weeds are more difficult to control than others. For most weeds, you’ll begin to see a decline within 10-14 days. Typical signs of effective weed control include discoloration, twisting and withering. Difficult weeds may take multiple visits and special products to remove from yard.

There are brown spots in the lawn?

Weeds will compete with the grass on your lawn for nutrients and sunlight. Once weeds are selectively targeted during the treatment process, brown and bare areas may develop and create a short-term void until the desired grass reclaims the ground. Brown or bare spots can also be related to weather, soil conditions, weed decline, disease or insect pressure.

When can kids and pets return to lawn?

After a service, we advise customers to allow the application to dry before kids and pets return to lawns. Although highly dependent upon temperature and humidity, most liquid products dry within 1-2 hours.

Why are there new weeds after you put down pre-emergent?

Pre-emergent applications are timed to target and prevent specific weeds from flourishing after germination has occurred. Unfortunately, not all weeds are controlled using a pre-emergent product.

Why aren’t there immediate results?

Your lawn will benefit from a consistent, year-round plan to achieve a lush, healthy, weed-free lawn. Depending on the condition of your lawn, it can take time to have a great lawn.

Weeds are best treated before they germinate with pre-emergent weed control, which is applied in the fall to warm season grasses and in the spring to cool season grasses. Post-emergent weed control can be applied to visible weeds, and will begin to see a decline within 10-14 days and several weeks for them disappear. For weeds that are difficult to control, multiple visits or specialized products may be required to gain acceptable control.

A combination of fertilization and adequate watering will help ensure your lawn receives the proper nutrition and hydration it needs to thrive. Depending on your soil PH, a soil amendment may be needed to ensure a healthy foundation for growth. The timing of such applications and expectations for results will vary by region. Plus, lawn-damaging insect control can help keep grubs or chinch bugs from damaging your healthy turf.

Your lawn may also benefit from aeration and over-seeding, where appropriate, to allow the roots access to air, nutrients and water. This will help achieve a thicker, healthier lawn that can crowd out weeds from gaining a foothold in the spring.

Every lawn and its challenges are unique, and we will provide progress updates and special instructions for your lawn at each service visit.

Was dry or liquid applied to property?

We use both dry and liquid materials depending on the time of year and what is best for your lawn.
