What is lawn spraying?

Lawn Spraying is a term used to describe lawn and ornamental pest control. The main purpose of lawn spraying is the health of your lawn - keeping it well feed and free of pests. My philosophy of lawn spraying is to encourage the St Augustine with good fertility, kill the more serious pest like chinch bugs, grubs and mole crickets and constantly discourage the weeds. And from those three efforts your St Augustine grass SHOULD get better and better. I say "should" because there is two things required of the owner - water as often as law permits and mow as high as your mower will go.

How much does it cost?

An average interior lot is $65.00 - $75.00 per application. The minimum is $45.00 per application - reserved for small front yard only turf areas. Corner and large lots are higher.

How do I start my service?

I will visit you lawn and then call you with a price, service options and recommendations on how to improve your lawn – at no charge to you.

How do I cancel my service?

There are no contracts, no penalties and no fees to cancel. To cancel your service all you need do is call, write or leave a note on your last payment and asking to stop the service – no forms to fill out, no hoops to jump through, no questionnaires or begging you to keep the service – just tell me you want to stop the service.

How do I pay for my service?

You can pay by credit card or check. Shortly after the service you will receive a notice by email with a link to your online account where you can pay your bill using your credit or debit card. You can also pay using your bank’s online bill pay service or personal check. If you do not have an email account or prefer a paper bill sent via US Postal Service, there is a paper bill service available for additional $5.00 per billing cycle. (Paper bill service includes a stamped return envelope to mail your check)

How often do you treat the lawn?

Six (6) times per year is the basic service. I also offer twelve (12) times per year. The basic service (6 times per year) provides for excellent insect control, medium fertility levels and fair weed control. For better weed control I suggest a short cycle of monthly spraying for 3 months during peak weed season and then return to 6 applications per year. The twelve times per year is a premium service who want that level of service.

How long after spraying before we go on the grass?

Nothing I spray on the lawn is known to be harmful to people or pets but it does stain. So it is best to stay of the lawn until it dries - usually after an hour.

Pets, is it safe for pets to go on the lawn?

On most work days, millions of lawns will be sprayed in Florida and no pet or human will be harmed. The modern chemicals we use are not the skull and crossbones poisons of the last century. As a matter of fact the most widely used insecticide is the same insecticide used in flea shampoo for pets. Even if a pet was to wonder on a freshly sprayed lawn, they are in no danger.

What does the homeowner need to do?

Mow the lawn as high as the mower will go and water as often and as much as the law permits. Also paying your bill before the next service is a good thing.

What do I get for my money?

You are paying for a lawn spraying service. The service is: deliver to your lawn the finest fertilizers, insecticides and herbicides and apply them accurately and evenly to your lawn. What you get: A healthy lawn that is a natural and attractive setting for your house. Fewer bugs in and around your house, including fleas, ticks, crickets, ants and other creepy crawlers And an agronomist who can answer many of your questions about your landscape.

Yes and No. Yes we guarantee we will spray your lawn with the finest fertilizers, insecticides and herbicides and guarantee that work (in case of a spill or damage we may cause). No, we do not provide landscape insurance – hiring us does not guarantee your lawn will be perfect - results depend upon you watering the lawn and mowing it as high as the mower will go.
