Do you have any kind of guarantee for your service?
Yes, Countryside Lawn and Tree Care stands behind its service. You take no risk whatsoever with Countryside. You must be fully satisfied with every treatment. If not, simply let us know and we’ll immediately make things right. We are never satisfied until you are.
How safe are your applications for my kids and pets?
Countryside fertilizers are not considered hazardous materials. There is no record of human or pet injury, resulting from a Countryside Lawn and Tree Care fertilizer application. While no lawn pest control material may legally be classified as “completely safe”, our weed and insect controls are termed “practically non-toxic”, the lowest pesticide toxicity classification. These products are registered for use on home lawns and contain many of the same active ingredients as the products you buy at the local nursery or garden store. Used by our professional technicians in strict compliance with labeled instructions, they do not represent any significant threat to your family or pets.
What is meant by lawn and tree care management?
You can make the grass in your lawn healthy enough to out-compete most weeds with good management. This requires applying balanced fertilizers at the right times and in the correct amounts. You will also need to mow frequently, keep your mower blades sharp and allow the grass to stay at least 3 inches long. If nature doesn’t provide adequate, timely water, you will have to do so. Following good lawn and tree care management with Countryside will result in a healthier lawn.
Do I have to sign a year-long contact with your company?
No. If at any point during the season you feel that you do not need our services or if changes in life make our services not a feasible option, just give us a call and we can discontinue the services. You will only be responsible for services already rendered.
Do I need to be home for you to complete the treatment?
No, just as long as we have access to the lawn area. If you prefer to be home, we can give you a call the day before a treatment to let you know we are coming.
Is there any single solution to lawn weeds?
Since there are so many types of plants that can become lawn weeds, a simple solution is not available. Various weeds respond differently to weed control methods. Good lawn management is your best defense.
What exactly is crabgrass?
Crabgrass (Digitaria sanguinalis) is an annual grassy weed with broad blades having a rough texture and a lighter green than turf grasses. Since it is annual, it germinates in the spring, develops during the summer leaving lots of fresh seeds, then dies in the late fall. The plants that are there this summer will not be back, but their seeds will.
