Our Most Common Lawn Treatment Questions

  • Estimates are always free. You don’t even have to be home. We can come by and leave the information on your door, or we can call you to set a time to meet with you.

  • We base your price on the square footage of your grass areas. Prices start as low as $24.95 per application. Many times, we can estimate a price range over the phone by looking at the records of your neighbors who are already Fairway Lawns customers.

  • Ours is a verbal agreement. You are free to cancel at any time. But if you stay on our program, you will see the best results. Our service is continuous from year to year, like a subscription, so if you move or need to cancel for some other reason, you must contact us to stop the service.

  • All our applications equal or exceed EPA safety standards. We recommend that children and pets stay off the yard after a liquid application until it is dry (about 30 minutes). This is an additional safety measure in case someone happens to have a particular allergy (even dogs can have allergies). Through the years, we have found that this is a personal decision. Some clients leave their dogs out all the time, even while we’re doing the application, and others always put them in the house or garage when we’re coming out.

  • Our regular program consists of 7 to 10 applications per year, depending on the type of grass you have and which city and state you live in. When we do an estimate, we will recommend the appropriate program for your lawn. We may recommend some additional weed applications for the first year only, depending on the shape your lawn is in and the time of year that you start the service.

  • Not at all. We will just leave your invoice on the door, along with information on the completed application, as well as watering and mowing instructions. If you need to know when we’re coming out (to unlock a gate or put up the dogs), we can call you the day before to let you know.

  • We recommend watering your lawn within 48 hours after an application (except when it rains a fair amount). Giving your lawn about an inch of water after an application helps carry nutrients into the soil so they can be absorbed by the roots of your turf.

  • It can actually be a good thing if it rains following a pre-emergent, fertilizer, or lime treatment because it enhances the effectiveness of your application by helping the product soak into the soil. The products we apply for our tree and shrub program dry quickly, so as long as they have had about 20-30 minutes to dry, your plants should be protected.

  • It depends on the shape your yard’s in, to begin with. When we evaluate your property and give you your estimate, we’ll let you know how long it will take for your lawn to reach its maximum potential. Some customers start out with a yard that’s a mess! Others have new sod that looks great. With each application, you’ll see a difference, but if your yard is thin and full of weeds, it may take a growing season or two to get it looking like a showplace.

  • It depends on the results you’d like to see. If you want the results that we want for you, you must get the full program. Many people think if they just have weed control applications, they won’t have weeds. However, your main defense against weeds is a thick, lush lawn. If you only want weed control applications, then you must be sure you fertilize your lawn yourself. Bear in mind that when we do fertilizer applications, we also spot spray weeds. The products we use are not available over-the-counter—some weeds, like wild violets, onions, or nutsedge require special products designed specifically for those weeds. If you only receive weed control applications, we will not be out in the summer when summer weeds are present.

  • For most weeds, it will usually take about 7 to 14 days after treatment for them to begin to curl up and die. However, some weeds may take longer or take multiple applications for effective control.

  • It depends. Different weeds grow in different seasons and some are more difficult to control than others, so weed treatment needs to be applied multiple times a year.  We recommend continuing with the full lawn treatment program to achieve the best results.

  • Unfortunately, we do not treat flowerbeds. Flowers and ornamentals are just too sensitive to weed control products, and we can’t risk damaging any of your plants.

  • If we knew how, we’d be rich! Unfortunately, there is no sure way to rid your yard of moles and gophers. Traps are the best way, but they are difficult to place and time-consuming to monitor. Terriers can be good at catching them, but they’ll dig up your entire yard in the process. A shotgun works, too, but the neighbors would probably call the police! Please do not think that getting a preventive grub application or treating for grubs will rid your lawn of moles. Moles eat many different things, primarily earthworms. If you have a bad mole problem, you may want to contact a pest control company that will set and monitor traps.

  • The best way to keep your lawn healthy and looking great is to mow and water properly.

    • Follow the 1/3 rule and only mow a 1/3 of the grass height at a time.
    • Keeping your grass clippings on the lawn can help give your grass back some nitrogen and other nutrients.
    • If possible, water your lawn in the early morning to allow your grass to have a full day of sunshine to grow and absorb the water.
    • Ensure your grass receives about 1-1 1/2 inches of water per week.
  • Most of our customers come from referrals from other happy customers, and we appreciate that very much! If someone referred you and you become a full-program customer, that person will get a $50 credit on their account. Likewise, when you are on our service, you will receive a $50 credit each time someone you refer becomes a full-program customer.

  • If you see weeds popping up, or you need some extra fertilizer between your regularly-scheduled applications, we’ll come out and treat your lawn at no charge. (Skipping regular applications voids this guarantee.)

  • Our office hours are 7:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. CST Monday through Friday and 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. CST on Saturdays in the spring.
