Here are some Frequently Asked Questions regarding lawn care that we hear from our customers:
Why should I use a lawn care service?
When you consider the cost of doing it yourself, it makes sense to have someone else do it for you. You won’t have to drag heavy bags home from the store, you won’t have to store fertilizers and weed control at your home, and you won’t have to waste your weekend pushing a spreader across your lawn. So, sit back and relax and let us do the work for you.
Does Terradyne Lawn Service have a guarantee?
Terradyne’s full program customers have our satisfaction guarantee. If, between applications, you have any treatable weeds that are persisting or have any concerns with your lawn, just give us a call. We will come out at no extra charge and treat for weeds or give advice on your lawn. Since you see your lawn every day, it’s important that you call us if you have any concerns.
What is a full program?
Our full program consists of 6 to 7 applications of balanced fertilizer and liquid weed control. The first and second application of the season also has a crabgrass pre-emergent included in the fertilizer.
How often will I see Terradyne Lawn service for treatments?
We usually begin our season early March (weather permitting) through late April;. Once you have had your first application, you will see us out about every 30-40 days from then on until the 7 applications are completed (October to mid November).
What is the price per treatment?
The price per application is based on the size of your lawn. We are happy to provide you with a free, no obligation estimate before we begin any service.
Are all weeds treatable?
The majority of weeds that we see in lawns are treatable. There are, however, some exceptions. Quackgrass and Tall Fescue are common grassy weeds that are not controllable. There are also some controllable weeds that take several weed control applications before the are eliminated.
How tall should I mow my grass?
Mowing tall is very important to the health of your lawn. If you mow your grass too short, it becomes very easy for your grass to burn out in hot, dry weather. It also give weeds the opportunity to invade your lawn. We recommend mowing at 3″ or higher during the summer months. Don’t forget to give your lawn a minimum of 1″ of water per week, also!
What is thatch?
Thatch is the dead, decaying root system that is lying on top of the soil. When the thatch layer builds up, water, air, and fertilizer cannot reach down to the roots of the growing grass. Having your lawn aerated every fall helps to keep the thatch under control, allowing your lawn to get the most out of your fertilizer treatments.
