Fertilizer, Weed Control & Lawn FAQs
Yes and no. We do offer a 100% all natural organic based fertilizer which is a slow release product to promote deep root growth in your yard. As far as "organic" weed control, there is no such thing out there that is effective. We can always spot spray your weeds to reduce chemicals in your yard.
The first application is a granular fertilizer which contains a pre-emergent for crabgrass. Since broadleaf weed control is not a preventative, it is only effective when weeds have already germinated and are actively growing. Weed control is normally applied with your second and subsequent applications when the weather has warmed up enough to allow the broadleaf weed control to be effective.
We recommend that you fertilize every 30-45 days to keep your lawn healthy and green. This works out to be 5 applications per year.
Some broad-leaf weeds will curl up and die almost immediately and some will take as much as two weeks to die. In any case, if there are still weeds present after two weeks, simply call us and we will come out and spot spray the weeds at no extra charge.
Yes, we use a spreader/sticker together with the weed control. After a half hour or so when the product is dry, it cannot be washed off by rain or irrigation.
You can begin to water your lawn after the sprays have dried which is usually in about an hour on a sunny day.
We recommend watering every day between 5 am and 9 am for 20 - 30 minutes per zone. On extremely hot days, add a late afternoon watering around 6 pm.
Please stay off lawn until the lawn is dry, or as an extra precaution wait 24 hours. With the sun and wind, the material dries relatively fast but waiting as long as possible is best.
For the best results, we recommend 24 hours. If you are mowing high, you can technically mow the same day and still be okay, but waiting 24 hours is best.
You should mow your lawn at a minimum of 3" during the growing season. Depending on the lawn, maybe even a little higher.
Grubs and insects are usually in our lawns every year. Weather conditions and population of the pests are what determines the amount of damage. Grub and insect control is not needed every year, but during the years that these pests are present you may wish you had used grub control. We view grub and insect control as insurance on your lawn. Just like any other insurance, you hope you don't need to use it, but it's there if you do.
Once dried, the application is safe for children and pets. Drying times take 30-60 minutes depending on the weather. All products are EPA approved and all technicians are state certified to apply.
While we would like to offer 100% effectiveness from all mosquito, flea and tick, you should notice a 95% reduction in the pests in your yard. Go Green Lawn Care is dedicated to making your yard or event as pest free as possible.
Every time we apply a treatment our technician will leave a sign in the yard, as well you will get a confirmation email shortly after.
As long as our application has had time to dry, the rain will have no effect on our treatment. In addition, we will not apply directly before rain.
A typical treatment will average about 10-15 minutes. Larger yards may take longer to treat. Each treatment lasts approximately 21 days, at which time our team will be scheduled to treat your yard again.
Not generally. Mosquitoes do not usually seek shelter in the grass. The most common areas to find mosquitoes during the day include: the underside of the leaves of dense/shrubby plants, under decks and in damp shady areas of the property. We do recommend that you keep your grass short during the mosquito season. With a Flea & Tick application, your grass will be sprayed. Our service will also kill fleas, ticks, spiders, ants, cockroaches, and box elder bugs.
