Frequently Asked Questions
This fact sheet has been provided to help answer any questions you might have about the LAWN RX lawn care program. Our goal is to give you the best looking lawn possible, the best service, and to be able to do it at less cost and effort than doing it yourself. We ask that you keep this brochure handy for future reference, but if you have any problems, please call the office.
A beautiful lawn is not something that can be achieved over night. No single treatment is going to cure all of your lawn's problems, some of which may have been developing for years; nor can we anticipate the kinds of problems which can be caused by unusual weather conditions. But we do know that the healthier a lawn is when a problem occurs, the faster it will grow back when favorable conditions return.
During unseasonable dry weather, your lawn goes into a state of semi-dormancy, sometimes appearing as if it were dead. This is just Mother Nature's way of protecting the lawn and waiting for better weather conditions to return. With your support and Mother Nature's help, your lawn will soon be on its way to being beautiful. The following is designed to answer many of the questions you have about your lawn and how our service operates.
One of the most important areas of turf management is mowing. Unfortunately, it is probably the least understood and most abused area of lawn care.
Moisture is a vital element to good development and growth of the lawn grasses. Although supplemental watering is not essential, it will bring about increased benefits to your lawn. Remember to apply water only as fast as the soil can absorb it.
From time to time you may want to do some seeding on your lawn. It is recommended that you do this seeding during the fall when we have the best growing conditions. If you plan any extensive re-seeding, please advise our office.
Turf insects are becoming more of a problem for the homeowner because of the widely varied life cycles and the limitations of various control products.
Thatch is an accumulation of partially decompressed grass blades, stems, roots and other organic matter which has built up over a period of years. Everyone has hatch in their lawn; but when the thatch becomes thicker than on inch, it can create problems.
If at any time you observe any unusual conditions on your lawn, please call our office at (724) 539-1003.
