Frequently asked questions and “Hopper Help”
Watering Suggestions - Maintenance
All watering should be done between the hours of 5 am – 8 am. Watering during the day will cause the lawn to get burnt and watering at night will cause fungus. We recommend 10-15 minutes per zone every other day.
Watering for New Seed or Lawn Establishment
The most vital part of caring for new seed is watering. It is vital that the new seed stays wet and does not dry out.
Far too many people will set their mowers too low or “scalp” the lawn. This leads to thin and dying out grass, shallow root systems, and in the long run, NO GRASS. In order to achieve grass that is healthier lush and beautiful, and lasts throughout the season, you should cut on the highest setting possible, a minimum of 3 ½ to 4 inches. The longer the blades are, the better; especially during the extreme heat. Cutting any shorter will cause undue stress to the lawn and cause a lot of problems. The higher you mow, the deeper the roots, the more water the grass can get and the less you’ll have to water. Another key to proper cutting is keeping the mower blades sharp.
No matter how lush and beautiful a lawn happens to be, it will inevitably have problems of some type at sometime during its existence. Preventing fungus is the best method for keeping your lawn healthy which is why we offer preventative fungus treatments. Of course, we can also treat existing fungus problems and help to keep them from taking over your lawn. There are many different strains of fungus that come out at various times of the year. It can present itself in many different ways. Sometimes it looks like mushrooms, or brown or red patches, dead spots, etc. We can help to prevent and treat lawn fungus.

How will you know when we’ve come?
You will know when we have serviced your property even if you’re not there when we come. Each time we come out we leave a pesticide flag and a slip. The slip will tell you what service we performed and when you can expect to see the results and any aftercare instructions you need to know. It will also let you know if you need to stay off the treated areas and how long. The slip also doubles as a remittance copy in case you want to pay by check.
When will I receive a bill?
We send a monthly billing statement to any customer who has a balance and each time we come, we leave a slip/ remittance copy. You can choose to pay off of that or you can choose to wait until you receive our monthly statement.

Lawn Fertilizer and Weed Control Program
Without fertilizer most turf grasses will struggle to maintain vigor and color. Fertilizing increases growth, color, vigor, hardness, thickens the grass and is the mainstay of having a rich dark lawn. While fertilizing alone will not provide a perfect lawn, it is one of the most important parts of lawn care. Thick grass helps to keep unwanted and unsightly weeds at bay. Weeds germinate and grow during all seasons of the year. Because of this many people fail in trying to control the weeds themselves. Weed control products need to be used regularly just like the regular fertilizing schedule. Good weed control is achieved only when you use the right product for the right weed at the right time.
After a few years the soil under your lawn can become compacted. Also, over time, bare spots form due to heavy traffic, pet waster or simply because the lawn is old. If your lawn in fair condition but needs to be thickened up an easy way to do this is to Aerate and overseed. An aerator is a machine that will poke a hole in the ground (thousands of them actually) and remove a core of soil and leave it laying on the surface. This allows for moisture and air to penetrate the soil.
Why is Lime Important?
Lime treatments neutralize overly acidic soils and allow turf to fully absorb nutrients like calcium and phosphorous while lowering existing levels of iron and manganese. These minerals may harm grass when present in overabundant quantities.
Four most common lawn care problems:
1Excessive moisture – with grass that gets too much moisture, weeds such as dollarweed, crabgrass, sedge and many others thrive. 2Inadequate moisture – with grass not getting enough moisture, the grass will not thrive or be able to grow strong. 3Insufficient sunlight – grass needs sunlight for healthy growth. 4Mowing too low – the grass becomes weak
The foundation for a good lawn is the soil in which it grows. If you have soil issues, you will have lawn issues. Allowing us to perform a soil test gives us valuable information about what your soil has and what you need to add to it. It takes the guesswork out of lawn care and saves you money.
