Grubs kill St Augustine turf by feeding on the roots. A turf without roots cannot take up water or nutrients and grub damaged turf appears water stressed and weak.

Lawn spraying is exactly that – spraying the lawn with a liquid. But what is that “liquid”, what does it do and how does it work?

All lawn spraying companies are not the same. They do not all spray the same liquid on your lawn - each lawn spraying company has their own mix design - blends of fertilizers, herbicides and insecticides.

So, with so many differences, how do you decide between TruGreen , Scotts or APL Lawn Spraying?
