Professional Lawn Care Program
• FIVE LAWN TREATMENTS approximately seven weeks apart. Your lawn's treatments
correspond to the normal agronomic cycles in our geographic area.
The first treatment includes crabgrass control.
• SEASON-LONG INSECT CONTROL is applied along with the 2nd treatment.
• DRY FERTILIZERS are used on every application. Consequently, the Williams Lawn Care
program will develop a greener, hardier, more weed-resistant turf.
• LIQUID WEED CONTROLS are used because of their superior effectiveness.
• SERVICE CALLS are made if you have questions about your lawn's progress.
Diagnosis will be made at no charge.
• OPTIONAL LATE FALL FERTILIZATION is offered at an additional charge.
You need not be present to receive an application. A statement describing the treatment
will be left at your door. Prompt payment is appreciated.
The Williams Lawn Care program is a partnership between us. Following the recommendations below will greatly improve the results of each application.
Posting markers will be placed around the perimeter of the lawn as per NYS regulation. Williams Lawn Care, Inc. is a registered business and all of its applicators are licensed.
Mowing is the most important maintenance aspect in keeping a lawn beautiful and healthy. Mowing intervals should be frequent enough so that no more than 1/3 of the grass blade is
removed at each cutting. Do not remove the clippings unless they are so long that they smother the grass. It is desirable to change the direction of the mowing periodically to improve the overall appearance. The blade should be sharpened at least once each season to assure
a clean cut.
Rainfall is very helpful in moving the applied materials to the root zone where they become more effective. A hard rain immediately following an application may affect the weed control.
In such an instance we will automatically return to reapply the weed control.
Thatch is a mat of debris between the soil and the crowns of the living grass plants. Thatch is inevitable because many plant parts,especially shallow fibrous roots, tend to regenerate annually thus contributing to thatch buildup. It is a problem because it restricts the movement of air, water, and nutrients. It also promotes shallow rooting and summer stress. Heavy thatch is also an environment for insect inhabitation and disease development. When mowing turf that has a heavy thatch content, scalping often occurs because the mower wheels sink into the spongy thatch layer. If your lawn has more than 1/4" of thatch, aeration is recommended.
Interesting fact: Clippings do not contribute to thatch buildup, according to University research.
