Your technician got some fertilizer in my gardens and mulch beds, is this going to kill my plants or shrubs?

While our technicians try to apply our fertilizer to only your grass, in order to make sure we get the edges of your lawn some fertilizer granules could easily spill over to your garden or mulch beds. However this will only help your gardens and beds. Our fertilizer works similarly to miracle grow. It will help your plants and will not hurt them.

Do you cut lawns?

Green Lawn Fertilizing does not do any mowing, mulching or cleaning up of lawns.

What are proper mowing and watering techniques for my lawn?

Watering Techniques: 1” – 1.5” for about 20 minutes per section of the lawn, at least 3 times per week. If possible always water in the early morning hours, this will allow any water that has not been absorbed by the soil to evaporate with the sun. If you water in the evening, the excess water will just lie on the grass and potentially lead to a lawn disease.
Mowing Techniques: Set you mower blades at 3” – 3.5” high at all times. Always mow with sharp blades.

Your technician was just out on my property; it only took him a few minutes to do my lawn. I don’t think he did the entire lawn. Can you come back out?

Our spreaders cover six feet. If your lawn is not too large it should only take a short while to fertilize your entire lawn. If we come back out right now there is a chance that we will over fertilize your lawn, if you still think that your lawn wasn’t entirely fertilized in a couple weeks, please call us back and we will come back out to retreat.

Why does my lawn look brown and dried out in the summer?

In the summer your lawn can look like this due to excessive heat and not enough rain. Our fertilizer is time released and water released, so if the lawn is not getting wet, then the product is not breaking down into the ground. For the best results we recommend watering your lawn for 20 minutes per section in the morning at least 3-4 times weekly.

How long should I wait to cut my lawn after you have applied fertilizer?

After a fertilizing treatment you need to wait only 24 hours to mow the lawn.

How long should I wait to cut my lawn after aeration and seeding?
After aeration and seeding we recommend waiting at least one week to mow your lawn.
