Until there is 10 inches of moist soil (enough to cover the full root zone). You can check this by pushing in a screwdriver after watering. If it goes in easily and moist soil sticks to it, then you have watered sufficiently. Or, you can pry back the soil with a shovel to see the watering depth.

Each spray we check for insects that brown out the lawn. If we find insects we apply insecticide. If you think you have insects browning the lawn, please call the office right away. Insecticide is not an effective preventive, observation saves more lawn. For an additional fee, we spray a Bug Barricade around the outside of your home to help prevent spiders, ants, earwigs and wasps from entering. Please call if you would like this service.
Grubs, Billbugs, Cranberry Girdler and Sod Webworm are the typical insects in this area.
Insects damage grass blades by severing the roots or crowns. A grass blade with insect damage is brown throughout the entire blade. Check a brown spot by pulling up a handful of grass. If the grass pulls up like carpet that is an indication of possible insects. With the grass pulled up, then look for insects on the soil.
All broadleaf weeds: Morning Glory, Dandelion, Spurge, Thistle, etc
Crabgrass is an annual grass that germinates in the spring and grows during the summer months. We can help control crabgrass by using pre-emergence in the spring and spraying special herbicide in the summer. Orchard grass is a perennial grass that grows taller than your regular grass and year-round. There is no selective way to kill orchard grass without killing your lawn. To kill orchard grass you can spray roundup, then dig up and replant.
There’s no spray to get rid of mushrooms. Mushrooms are a sign of nature decomposing something in the lawn. The best thing to do is kick or mow them over. To help prevent them, try watering deeper and less frequently.
Yes, on the last application of the season we apply a higher concentration of fertilizer to help the roots grow deeper and build carbohydrates. This helps the lawn grow thicker and healthier in the spring.
Your lawn will look its greenest 3 weeks after an application. If it’s not green to your satisfaction be sure to give us a call and we’ll re-spray at no additional charge.
All existing broadleaf weeds will be damaged after 2 consecutive applications. Hard to kill weeds, such as spurge and morning glory, take 6 consecutive applications to kill their root systems. We also spray a pre-emergence herbicide twice to help prevent spurge, crabgrass, and other summer annual weeds.
