We recommend that you do not mow your grass 24 hours before or after we visit. Weeds need to be actively growing to get the best results from weed control. If you cut your weeds right before or after we spray, it can affect the growing stage of the plants so they do not absorb the chemicals effectively. Also many of the chemicals or fertilizers that we apply to your lawn need to be watered in to be effective. Mowing can also suck up fertilization granulars that have not been watered in. It is also important to note that many lawn grasses are healthiest when mowed at a length of 2.5 to 3 inches.

By making sure you lawn gets adequate amount of fertilization, one can experience the many benefits of a healthy lawn. These benefits include preventing weeds, lawn diseases, and even save you money and get you a great looking lawn that adds curb appeal to your home. Southeast Idaho lawns need four macronutrients that are found in our fertilizers. The fertilizers that we use have been specifically made to make sure your lawn gets the right amount of these macronutrients. These macronutrients help with having a green lawn, strong root system, and build a tolerance to diseases and drought that Idaho lawns are acceptable to. Nitrogen is one of the most important macronutrients for your lawn. Southeast Idaho lawns need 3-5 pounds of nitrogen a year. However, if too much nitrogen is applied at once you can damage your lawn. Our specifically designed 4 step program, is designed to help Southeast Idaho lawns get the nutrients they need without harming your lawn and fertilizing at the right times to make sure you have a healthy and green lawn. One of the best preventative measure against undesired weeds in your lawn is by having a healthy lawn with a strong root system. A healthy lawn with a strong root system helps crowd out undesired weeds and prevent seeds from germinating.

Spray Tech Solutions will make sure that weed control is applied at the right times to make sure you have the best chance for reducing weeds in your lawn. Many people want to spray as their lawns as soon as the snow melts and the air starts to warm up. However, this early spraying for post weed control is not very effective. Early spring is a great time for fertilizing and using pre-emergents. This is due to the cold nights still preventing many weeds from actively growing. To receive best results from many post emergent herbicides, weeds need to be actively growing and temperatures need to be optimal for the weeds to be growing.

There are several reasons as why you should care about spraying and getting rid of your weeds. Many counties have laws placed that make it illegal if you have weeds growing in excess of certain heights. Bonneville county for example has a law in place that require all weeds to be kept under 10 inches. Instead of always worrying about trimming weeds along property edges and in undesired places, spraying makes it an easy and affordable way to stay on top of undesired growth of vegetation around your property. Spraying for weeds also allow desired plants to grow and to thrive. Pre-emergents prevents weeds from ever coming up. Weeds also can create a fire hazard, and thus by keeping up on unwanted fees you can reduce this hazard as well. We offer complete vegetation control as well as an 8-month pre-emergent control.

Crabgrass is an annual grass, which means it dies each year. However, each individual crabgrass plant can produce up to 150000 seeds and this is why it spreads each year and takes over more and more of your lawn. But they won’t germinate until the following season. Crab grass often grows best between June and August and dies in October. Although crab grass is an undesirable course bladed grass it is treatable. Once crab grass is established in your lawn, there is not a lot you can do to get rid of it effectively. For best results a well timed pre-emergent will be the best preventative measure against crab grass. Our gold plan package offers crab grass pre-emergent to reduce its presence in your lawn

However, an unhealthy tree can be costly and may take many years to replace if you have to cut down and replant.
