Which Program is Right For Me?

To pick the best program, take a moment to consider the questions posed. Decide which variable is most important, then second and third. Compare your answers to the chart. The topics are color coded for easy reference. Have questions? We’re happy to help. Just call 574.277.LAWN for advice and input, or have us out for a FREE QUOTE!

Things to Keep in Mind...

“The best weed control method available to turfgrass managers is to promote a dense, healthy stand of the desired turfgrass...The best defense against weeds is dense, healthy turf.”
Category 3b Turf Pest Control; Indiana Commercial Pesticide Applicator Training Manual, Rev 1/03, pg 55-57

6 step programs provide maximum fertilization for general improvement. 5 step programs skip a spring treatment to make them more affordable. 4 step programs will provide adequate nutrition to maintain most lawns. Customers should not expect a 4 step program to provide rehabilitation of a neglected lawn.

Any lawn is subject to weed intrusion if not maintained properly. Synthetic herbicides mask the problem by removing the symptoms. We will help you create an optimal growing environment to maximize the health and development of your grass. A properly maintained lawn can have up to 20% weed intrusion and still appear weed free at normal viewing distances.
