Lawn Maintenance Service Program
These materials are used in varying amounts throughout the year, depending on the lawn conditions, weather, customer request, etc. We try to minimize as many pesticides as possible while maintaining a quality turf (I.P.M.)http://massnrc.org/ipm/what-is-ipm.html. A service bulletin will be left behind for every customer at the time of each application(s). The bulletin will specify material used and its appropriate recommendation and any safety precautions needed. It is impractical to promise specific results due to uncontrollable circumstances.
Improvements vary by soil conditions, grass types, weather and most importantly customer cultural practices.
First scheduled treatment of 2021 - will occur inside the month of April (weather depending).If planning a spring clean-up, PLEASE contact us by April 1st to postpone your first Crabgrass Preventative application.
