Frequently Asked Questions

How long after a treatment should I wait before allowing my children or pets on the lawn?
Allow the treatment to dry before allowing children or pets back out on the lawn.

What if I notice a problem or have a concern between applications?
Service calls are free. Just notify us and we will respond within 48 hours to resolve the issue.

When should I water the lawn after treatment?
This depends on the types of products applied. Your technicians will leave detailed instructions on watering requirements for each treatment.

When is the best time to water my lawn?
We recommend watering during the lawn’s natural wet period; usually between 2AM and 9AM to avoid promoting disease and limiting evaporation.

What is the recommended cutting height for my lawn?
Tall Fescue should be cut at 3 ½ inches or higher. Cutting fescue high promotes a deeper root system. Common Bermuda grass should be cut at a height of 1 inch to 1 ½ inches. Hybrid Bremuda grass should be cut at ¾ inch to 1 inch. Your technicians will always advise you on proper cutting height.

How often should I cut my lawn?
The rule of thumb is to never remove more than 1/3 of the of the grass blade in any one mowing. We recommend returning the clippings (mulching) into the lawn as this provides valuable nutrients and moisture for healthy growth. This practice reduces the need for additional watering and fertilization.

Why can’t I get grass to grow under my trees?
Grass requires adequate sunlight for growth. Shade from the trees does not allow adequate light for healthy growth. Tree roots also compete for valuable nutrients and water. Your technician will make recommendations for these areas in your lawn.

Does my lawn receive the same materials as my neighbors?
No, our trucks are set up to customize each application for each individual lawn. We have a fresh water tank and drop tanks allowing us to mix the appropriate treatment for your lawn unlike our competitors.

What types of insecticides does Plant It Earth use?
First, we will never apply insect control products unless we see turf damaging insects in high enough populations to warrant the treatment. We use systemic products to avoid harm to beneficial insects and we never use organophosphate insecticides.

Does Plant It Earth offer mowing and maintenance services?
We do offer mowing and maintenance in a limited service area and we can recommend reliable contractor partners outside our service area.

Does Plant It Earth offer discounts for pre-payment?
Yes, we offer a 10% discount for annual pre-payment of services.

What if I refer a friend or neighbor to Plant It Earth?
Any referral signing up for our services will result in a $20 discount off of your next application.

What is Plant It Earth’s guarantee?
We guarantee results. If you are not satisfied with the results of any application we will continue to work with you until you are satisfied at no additional cost or refund the amount of the last application.
