Frequently Asked Questions
These are some of the most common questions we receive here at Turf X.
Questions range from specifics on our specialties to common lawn care inquiries.
Q: I had my treatment a few days ago but I still have weeds?
Once your weeds have been treated it takes 14-17 days for those weeds to die and decompose, you will begin to see the weeds brown and curl usually within a week.
Q: I had a treatment today, when can I expect you back for my next scheduled treatment?
We will be out every 4-8 weeks for each treatment.
Q: I just had a treatment, can I mow the lawn?
Yes, it’s best to wait 24 hours before you mow especially if we have just applied weed control. Please don’t bag the grass clippings the first mow after the treatment.
Q: What is Quack Grass and how to I tell if I have it?
Quack grass is a troublesome wide bladed grassy weed; there is no chemical control, because quack grass is a perennial grass just like bluegrass. Crabgrass, on the other hand, can be controlled because it is an annual grassy weed that dies with the frost in the fall. Although quack grass prefers a sunny location, it is very adaptable and will grow almost anywhere. In most cases it is found in lawns that have not been maintained properly. By utilizing a good fertilizer program, sound watering practice, and mowing at the proper height most lawns will crowd out the quack grass over time.
Q: How did you come up with the estimate?
We measure your lawn by either using a wheel or an online program that measures the area (in square feet) to come up with a price.
Q: Where can I read other client's feedback of your work?
You can see a variety of reviews on our Testimonials Page. All these reviews are from Google or Facebook.
Q: Will you notify me before you are coming out to treat our lawn?
We will notify you 24 hours prior to our arrival! If we can’t get a hold of you; we will leave a message, we will also knock on the door.
Q: Do I need to be home?
No. We can do our job and leave our invoice at your door without bothering you. However we do need any gates to be unlocked or notified if any or dog fences, sprinkler heads or any other objects buried or sticking out of the lawn. (core aeration and slit seeding)
Q: Will you mark my sprinkler heads and dog fence before aeration?
We will not mark anything in your lawn, you or the company that installed the sprinklers or fence will have to mark them before we will begin.
Q: How High Should I Mow?
3 ½ inches is recommended.
Q: When Should I Mow?
Try mowing early in the morning or later in the evening when it’s not so hot.
Q: What are the best watering practices?
Generally your lawn should receive 1 inch of water per week.
Q: Why is it beneficial to aerate my lawn?
The cores you see will break down naturally over the next few weeks. Their decomposition is beneficial to your lawns ecosystem. They aid in the seeding success and enhance the microbial breakdown of the thatch layer.

They’ve done some weed control for me before and I’ve never been disappointed. I used to try and do it myself but I would always either kill the grass or not actually kill the weeds, they changed that! Good local business for lawn care services.
