What We Do
The philosophy is simple: Regular visits (6 per year) to keep the turf feed, the weeds discouraged and bugs away. You also recieve a detailed invoice shortly after the service, and “lawn coaching” to help you achieve the highest potential from your lawn.
- Service your property 6 times year
- Maintain fertility levels at medium to medium high
- Control turf insects - mainly during the warm summer months
- Discourage weeds all year long - we fight weeds all year long
- Provide a detail record of our service
I do not make "dinner hour" marketing calls, screen my calls, add extra charges to your bill or require a contract.
About Rick Orr, Owner and Agronomist
I graduated in 1979 from Va Tech with a BS in Agronomy. I spent a majority of my studies on Turf Ecology and Horticulture. After college I accepted the position of Golf Course Superintendent at Fripp Island Golf Resort in South Carolina.
Throughout the 80’s I spent my time at various venues from cemeteries to landscape maintenance companies. I supervised work at a variety of properties in the Panhandle of Florida including Sandestin Beach Resort and Seaside, Fl , before moving to St Petersburg in 1995.
In St Petersburg, I worked with local nursery operations, a large landscape company in North Pinellas and the Vinoy Counrty Club to learn the plant palette and local environmental conditions. Then in 2002 developed a lawn spraying company and became sole owner in 2006.
Over the past 10 years I earned professional certification for Pest Control, Arboriculture, Irrigation Contracting and Landscape Contracting. Although I focus on lawn spraying, my knowledge of landscape components and relationships is deep.
My home is in St Petersburg and I attend Calvary Chapel of St Petersburg on a regular basis where I have been a part of mission trips to India, Nicaragua, Guatemala and Bolivia. I spend a lot of time with my teenage son working to restore and prepare our 1966 VW Bus for a coast to coast trip - from Va. Beach, Virginia to Redondo Beach, California.
