How long after a lawn applicaton can I let kids or pets into the yard?


Our best advice is to wait 24 hours before letting children or pets into your lawn. If that is not possible, wait at least until the application has dried.




Creeping Charlie is taking over my yard! What can I do?


Charlie is an extremely invasive broadleaf weed that forms a dense mat over your lawn, and is especially happy to take over vulnerable, thin lawns. We suggest receiving our late spring and early fall applications with a 10-day follow up after each app. Consistency is key when it comes to treating lawn issues, so continue to do so each year.




What if it rains after I receive my lawn applicaton?


As long as your lawn applicaton had time to dry before the rain occurred, the chemicals will still take effect. If this is not the case, please contact us. We have record of the weather and the time we completed your applicaton, and will determine what steps to take next.




Is there a discount for prepaying?


We do provide a prepay discount. Please see our spring newsletter each March, or contact us by email or phone to learn more.




How soon will the lawn application start to work?


You will typically see the effects of your lawn application within two weeks for a liquid application. For granular applications (our early spring and late fall app,) water is needed for the application to take effect. If there is no rain, we suggest watering the application in. Remember, some apps may only contain fertilizer, and are not meant to kill weeds. For an explanation of each application, please visit our lawn services page.




Should I mow my lawn before my application?


It is not necessary to mow prior to your lawn application. We do suggest waiting 48 hours after your application to mow.
