Lawn care questions frequently asked by Saint Mary’s County, MD homeowners?

How much does lawn care cost?

When it comes to lawn care, there’s no such thing as “one size fits all.” Our basic lawn care program includes an initial analysis of your property, soil test, multi-treatment fertilization, weed prevention and elimination, grub control, and pH adjustment, would cost approx. $66 a month for a 5,000 sq. ft lawn.

Also, if you bundle another service with a lawn care program, like tree and shrub care, for instance, you’ll save 15% off that service!

How to get rid of crabgrass?

The best way to eliminate crab grass in will depend on the size of the area you are trying to treat. For smaller patches of crabgrass, hand-pulling or spot-treating with a selective herbicide may be the best option. For larger areas, you may want to consider using a pre-emergent herbicide, which will prevent crabgrass from germinating in the first place. It’s important to follow the instructions on whatever product you decide to use, as over-application or incorrect application of herbicides will do more harm than good. Additionally, it’s important to keep the area well-watered and mow at the proper height to discourage the growth of crabgrass.
