How long do I need to wait before I can allow my pets and children on the lawn after it is treated?
Children and pets should be kept off the lawn for 2-4 hours or until the materials have dried. On cloudy days this may take longer.
Should I water my lawn after each application? And if so, how much?
The lawn does not require watering after an application. If weed control was applied it will need to dry for maximum efficacy. The only application that needs to be watered in is the Grub and Insect Control which should receive ½ inch of water or rainfall within 24 hours to move the product into the soil for best results.
My treatment was applied today. How long before I will see the weeds dying?
Weed control depends on several things such as moisture levels and temperatures. The weeds will absorb the product through the leaf and transfer the product to the root system where it is distributed to the plant, causing the weed to die.This process usually takes 14-21 days for full control although you should see signs of the weed dying at 3-7 days. You will notice the weeds begin to discolor and the leaves will curl.
Will mowing my lawn directly after an application has been applied affect the result of the treatment?
Our products are specifically designed not to be affected by mowing, however if possible we recommend mowing at least 24 hours after a treatment was applied. Avoid collecting the clippings as this can remove some of the fertilizer and other products applied.
How will I know that my lawn has been treated?
Every time Healthy Lawn visits your property our technician will always knock on the door before beginning the application. Prior to the treatment we will flag the property so you know it was treated as well as leave detailed instructions and information about the service visit and the materials that were applied.
Can more than one treatment be applied in the same visit?
Yes, the Summer Treatment and the Grub and Insect Control will be done on the same visit and billed together.
Will my treatments be spaced out evenly throughout the season?
Optimally, treatments are spaced out 4-7 weeks apart. That being said, application timing is largely based on weather conditions and may be closer together or further apart depending on the needs of the turf.
What should I do if the machine used to apply the treatment flattens out parts of my lawn?
It is normal to see tire tracks or a flattened appearance of the turf after an application.It will be most noticeable in the early morning or during dry periods if you are not watering the lawn. The flattened turf will rebound and stand back up anywhere within 24-72 hours.
Why does my lawn never look as good in July and August as it does the rest of the season?
July and August are typically the hottest and driest months of the year and the lawn’s appearance may vary based on weather conditions and watering practices. In most cases the lawn will begin to improve with cooler temperatures and consistent rainfall.
Why does my lawn have a disease that my neighbor’s lawn doesn’t seem to have?
The fungus that causes disease is always present within the soil, but requires the right conditions to attack. Soil, moisture and air flow are all major contributors to disease. Visit our learning center for more disease information including great tips on how to prevent disease.
Why is my neighbor’s lawn greener than mine?
A greener lawn does not mean a healthier lawn; there are several factors that contribute to a lawn’s color. Different shades of green can indicate different grass types or life-cycles of a particular variety. Visit our learning center for more information on turf types.
