People like things that are easy and for good reason. Our lives are already so busy, the last thing that we want to do is waste unnecessary time on tasks that can be simplified.

When it comes to lawn care concerns, weeds are likely high on your list. Weeds popping up throughout the season take away from the overall beauty—and the enjoyment—of your lawn.
While you may have tried to get rid of weeds in the lawn, or maybe even hired a pro to handle it, there are some stubborn ones that just won’t seem to go away. You’re frustrated and you’re looking for a solution that will actually work.
The truth is, there could be a variety of reasons why weeds are sticking around. We’ll explore some of the most common reasons you may be struggling to get rid of weeds in your lawn, and what you can do about it.
Nobody wants to have the worst lawn on the block. It’s not only embarrassing but it’s a source of stress. Instead of going outside and enjoying your beautiful backyard, it just puts you in a bad mood every time you step outside.
While you know you’re in need of a lawn makeover, what you don’t know is exactly where to start. You want to be able to have a nice lawn but you don’t want to have to spend a ton of time or resources on it. You just want to transform your backyard with as few headaches as possible.
Because you love your lawn, you are exploring the decision to invest in professional lawn care services. You may have had the idea based on any number of reasons—you want to take back your weekends, you want to get better results, or you just want to have the nicest lawn on the block.
Whether it’s one (or all) of those reasons or even something else, you know you need to look into what’s out there. You want to find a lawn care company that can meet your needs.
The decision should be easy, but there are a lot of lawn care companies in Dayton, OH and that can make choosing the best one feel like a lot of work. In order to make a wise decision and choose the best company (and in turn, get the best service), you must do your research.
Your lawn is important to you and you go to great lengths to ensure it’s the best it can be. That includes hiring the best lawn care professional out there.
Of course, choosing the “best” company is not exactly a simple decision when there are so many companies to choose from. Not only that, but you’re deciding between both local companies and nationally known brands, and you’re not really sure if one is better than another. Should you go with the big name, just because you’ve heard it before, or is the local, family-owned business the right choice for you?
Weeds! These pesky lawn invaders can surface at different times throughout the year and, if not properly controlled, can ruin the appearance of even the nicest yard. It’s difficult to enjoy your time on your lawn if you have to look at unsightly weeds.
And whether it’s a few weeds or what seems like an army of them, they are more than an eyesore—weeds can choke out the healthy turf you worked so hard to nurture. At that point, you know you need a solution to rid your yard of these unwelcome intruders.
If you’re anything like us, you really love your dog (or dogs). Also like us, you probably really love your lawn as well. The trouble is, as we both know, dogs and lush lawns don’t always mix well. That’s because dogs can cause lawn damage in a number of ways. Whether your dog is digging in the yard, tearing it up by running, or damaging it with urine burns, the challenge remains how to maintain a beautiful lawn while still enjoying it with your canine companion.
Have you ever heard of The Song that Never Ends? Crabgrass is the weed equivalent of that irritating melody. This grassy weed may die off at the first frost but it comes back during the next growing season from the seeds that it created. If you’re not doing anything about the crabgrass growing in your yard, it’s going to multiply. That’s because a single crabgrass plant alone can produce thousands of seeds.
We are often asked how many lawn treatments do I need per year? And we understand the confusion. With so many lawn care companies out there packaging their programs in different ways, it can be very difficult to determine just how often fertilizer (as well as other treatments) should be applied.
While your question might be “how many lawn treatments do I need?,” the question you should really be asking is “what specifically needs to be done throughout the year?” It’s not so much about the number of visits as it is the possible issues that can occur that may need to be diagnosed and addressed.
While it would be nice if the weather always offered the ideal conditions for your lawn to thrive - 60 degrees at night and 80 degrees during the day with a perfect two-inches of soft, steady rain each week - the truth is, weather sometimes throws a curveball. Whether it’s lawn care and rain, lawn care and hot weather, or lawn care during cold periods, dealing with Mother Nature is part of the job.
