Your lawn may receive one or more liquid Weed and Feed treatment applications, typically having a shorter residual feeding and color duration. It is inexpensive, around 1/5 to 1/10 the cost of granular slow release fertilizer. DON'T BE FOOLED, some of these companies tout that they use Granular fertilizer, but only use it some of the time. At Aaron's WE USE GRANULAR *EVERY TIME, the better way. What's worse than cheap fertilizer? How about no fertilizer, only weed control for one or more treatments, with one of these competitors this is business as usual.
Granular slow release every time, not just when its convenient. Includes Iron and Micros if needed, even on our standard program. Weed control is included, not combined, so we can choose to apply if needed, the separate liquid spray. We can blanket the entire lawn or if not very weedy everywhere, spot just the weedy areas. Usually, spot treatment is mostly all that is needed after years of our lawn fertilizer programs on our veteran lawns. This is what is recommended by top growers of show lawns, Illinois Extension and plant pathologists.
Many customers that have came from the bigger companies tell us they would get several phone calls a week, selling more services whether they were interested or not. It seems the boiler room sales room is not dead.
They are interested in selling you, but it's usually landscaping projects. They are busy doing landscaping jobs they have already committed to. That leaves them with little time to care about sending out information on current maintenance problems or services to consider at the proper time. Chances are they'd rather cut your lawn then inform you on your cut height.
We inform and recommend though emailing or mailing when you need to know. We only call a few times with important information with a pre-recorded message, so you can choose if you want to connect with us about it or not. No pressure, just informing you about important timely things to consider. Many of these ex national / regional customers have told us they are happy with how we inform them and not push.
Funny Commercial About Some Lawn Care Service Competitors
Corners and edges need a consistent treatment and when applied properly there will be excess fertilizer that will need to be blown off. Blowing Granular fertilizer off the driveway does take a few extra minutes, but we're just following the instructions on the bag that many companies fail to do. Many may not even have a blower or broom on their truck or if they have the tools, are they required to use them?
Not everything can be done from a fertilizer machine. At times there may be a need to treat weeds in the lawn close to edges or smaller areas. This spot treatment is needed not only for those weeds along the edge, but also we will treat Grassy annual weeds as well if the solution is updated with time of season and needs. The formulation will change many times throughout the season for precise expert Weed control applications. Many companies fail to outfit a smaller sprayer on their trucks or just don't care about treating weeds if it's a dry application, making the customer wait until the next treatment round.
