When new customers are contacting us something we often hear (in regards to their former service) is “I always had weeds and crabgrass along my driveway, sidewalk, or flower beds.”
Many of our new customers also stated that no matter how many times they called their provider this issue was rarely remedied. The following are the reasons for this and why you won’t see this issue with OTG:
- Sloppy Application: it takes time to trim beds and edges with weed control, pre-emergent, etc. When these products are applied it’s incumbent upon the technician to ensure that every square inch of your lawn is treated. Companies that pay their technician based on production incentivize rush jobs and short cuts. Weeds along the edges can be the first sign this is what you’re getting from your lawn care company.
- Weeds and Crabgrass prefer the heat of driveways and sidewalks. This is why edges require special attention. If the application is granular for example we’ll apply additional product on sidewalks and driveways and then use a blower to push the excess product back to the edges where crabgrass and weeds congregate.
- Soil compaction tends to be higher in these areas due to foot and vehicle traffic. The hardier weed is more inclined to grow in these conditions.
Whatever the reason, the technicians at Operation Think Green will give your lawn the time and attention it deserves. In the event you did see crabgrass or weeds ANYWHERE in your lawn after we’ve applied, we provide free service calls and a technician will be on your lawn within 2 business days of your call.
