Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.
A. Our most common job is our standard lawn care package of 6 seasonally adapted applications of fertilizer.
Our standard contract includes fertilizer, crabgrass pre-emergent, weed control and grub control.
The 6 applications are broken down into 2 applications over 3 'seasons' : Spring, Summer, Fall.
We strive to be the absolute best value for price in our industry.
Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A. Pay attention to the details of an estimate. Many companies will provide estimates for a 'basic' package that is only applications of fertilizer. Weed control and grub control are often times considered "extras", and charged as such.
Remember to WORK WITH your lawn care provider! Do not be afraid to ask questions, and in between services make sure to monitor and take care of your lawn.
We provide information on proper cutting and watering techniques for lawns. Pay attention to them!
Pay attention to shade. Grass needs sunlight to grow, just as much as it needs good soil and enough water.
Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?
A. Grass does not grow in deep shade.
Grass requires a minimum of 6 hours of DIRECT sunlight in order to grow thick and strong.
If your lawn is all shade, focus on fixing that before you call a lawn service.
Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?
A. Ask about what services are provided with the initial estimate.
Ask about any trouble areas and how they could or should be treated, so those can be worked around or fixed as soon as possible.
Q. What important information should buyers have thought through before seeking you out?
A. How shady is my lawn?
What problem areas do I have?
Do I know why those areas are problems?
Will I take the time to follow advice from the lawn care people?
