Do I need to be present when you come to apply my lawn?

While we love to see our happy customers, it is not required that you be present at the time of service.

Do you do service calls?

After two lawn applications, Legacy Lawn Care customers are eligible to receive service calls.

Do you recommend all 8 rounds? Why? What if I only want a couple?

Legacy Lawn Care recommends utilizing all 8 rounds of lawn applications to ensure a healthy lawn. While we can do only a few rounds of treatments for you, we will not offer service calls without a full 8 round service program.

How long does it take for my lawn to be weed free?

The reality is that some weeds have a two to three year life cycle. We would love to ensure that you have a weed free lawn, but mother nature and an abundance of rain can greatly affect this. Remember, after two lawn applications, you are eligible for service calls.

How long should I wait until I let children play on the lawn after a treatment? How long should I wait until I let pets play on the lawn after a treatment?

We recommend that you wait at least 24 hours before letting your children – including pets – play on your lawn. Until then, maybe a game of Monopoly is in order.

How often should I mow my lawn?

Weekly mowing is recommended during the growing season. Although, mother nature may affect that if it is too wet or too dry during the season. Either way, you do not want to cut off any more than 1/3 of the leaf blade.

How often should I seed my fescue?

You should seed your fescue every year. Fescue grows from a seed rather than running like bermuda, centipede, or zoysia grass. It is recommended that you aerate and over-seed your lawn each year in order to maintain a thick, full lawn.

How often should I water my lawn?

It is recommended that your lawn receive one inch (1”) of water each week. A higher frequency of watering cycles versus a higher quantity of water is recommended. This is where a properly installed irrigation system can be a valued asset. 

How often will you service my lawn?

Legacy Lawn Care will service your lawn a total of eight (8) times over the course of a year. These applications will occur every 6 – 8 weeks.

How soon after treatment may I mow my lawn?

At least 24 hours is recommended after an application to mow your lawn.

I still have weeds after 1 treatment. Why?

It may take more than one treatment to notice a substantial difference in your lawn. The first round of treatments will be effective, but a complete system of treatments are prescribed for the best performance. Some weeds may take longer for an effective treatment. We ask that you let two lawn applications occur before you are eligible for service calls.

Is insect or disease control included in my normal lawn care program?

The normal lawn care program does not include insect or disease control. However, Legacy Lawn Care is committed to meeting the expectations of our customers, and we can cater our treatment programs to your needs.

It is December. My lawn looks great. Why should I continue with my lawn service program? -

While you may be happy with the current appearance of your lawn, if you discontinue your service for a period of time, you may miss out on vital pre-emergent application, and weeds may reappear.

My lawn is thinning under the trees. What the cause?

Chances are that you have a warm season turf that enjoys 8 – 10 hours of full light, so your tree canopies are providing too much shade. The root system of the trees can pull nutrients from the soil, which can be a detriment to the existing grass.

My lawn looks great! But I have weeds in my beds. Is this covered? Can you help?

The normal lawn care service does not cover weeds in your flower beds. However, we do offer bed weed control as a service that can be added to your lawn care program.

Should I bag my grass clippings when I mow my lawn?

No, because the cut leaf blade holds up to 30% of the nutrients that is in your lawn, and your lawn can benefit from the remaining lawn clippings.

When should I water after a lawn treatment?

It is recommended to wait at least 24 hours after a lawn treatment to water your property.

Will I ever have weeds again?

Legacy Lawn Care strives to meet your expectations as a customer. As long as you are a Legacy customer, we will work to ensure that you lawn is as healthy as possible.
