How to Have the Best Looking Lawn on the Block
The potential customer who wanted the best looking lawn on the block (of course) asked “Are you any different than Tru-Green or Scotts?”. I scanned his parched, bone dry yard that was little more than a sandbur garden and replied “If you don’t water, we’re the same”. After a dramatic pause, I continued “The best way to have the best looking lawn on the block is to water better than anyone else on your block and then hire a good lawn spraying company.”
The picture above shows two lawns that I have been providing lawn spraying service for 3 years. They are in the same neighborhood a few blocks apart and have the same owner. Both are rented.
Both properties receive the same amount of fertilizer, insecticides and herbicides – aka lawn spraying. No difference – I service them the same.
What is the Difference in the Two Lawns?
The difference is the lawn on the left is not irrigated and relies on what little rain God provides to survive. The lawn on the right is watered at least twice every week and the irrigation is covering the entire lawn.
Water is That Important
I see this quite often during most days. One lawn is brown, thin and weedy and most of all dry. The next lawn is lush, green and moist. The owner of the of brown wants to know why their lawn looks so bad. Yet when I tell them it is too dry, they often refuse to accept that answer. Somehow, someway they expect me me to spray something to fix their lawn. But I can’t – I cannot spray away poor irrigation.
If you want to have your lawn look like the lawn on the right you must water at least twice EVERY week without failure.
