    lawn care prescriptionWe all see advertising everyday for a new miracle drug that can help you live a better life by improving your body's ability to fight certain diseases or symptoms. Like the health care industry, the perfect prescription for lawn care can lead to a better looking, healthier lawn. Good news is that Weed Pro has that perfect prescription to get a great lawn.

    Timing, Timing, Timing

    Timing is great for a perfect joke, but it's even better for your lawn care regiment. Similar to a prescription for an illness, the key to any fertilizing program is making sure that your lawn receives continuous treatment throughout the season. Great timing can make sure there are no gaps in important treatment products helping your lawn. The typical lawn care program includes 5-6 lawn care applications spaced every 4-7 weeks. 

    Don't Trust the Knockoffs, It's All in The Ingredients

    Lawn care products are all the same, right? Similar to medication, knock-off brands pop up all the time in the lawn care industry. Fertilizers are easy to produce, however the quality can vary and the formulations can be adjusted to cheapen the products. It's best to always check the ingredients in any fertilizer product, just like you would with over-the-counter medications. So be careful to check what products a lawn care company in Cleveland or Columbus uses when buying a lawn care program. Reputable companies, such as Weed Pro, can provide you a list of treatments and specifications of those products.

    Taking All Your Medicine

    Every time you get sick and the doctor prescribes you prescription, you usually start feeling better before that prescription runs out. But as my doctor (and mom) would always tell me, don't stop taking your medicine! They tell you this because while your symptoms may be better, the illness has not been completely eliminated. Often with lawn care, after treating your lawn once you'll experience a "green up" effect. However while the turf appears green, it still needs further treatment to get & remain healthy. Lawn care programs, such as Weed Pro's, are created to provide the right treatments for lawns in Ohio throughout the season. This not only keeps your lawn looking great, but also keeps it healthy all season.

    Take Two of These And Call us in The Morning

    Quite often we here, "Can we reduce the number of treatments we receive to save money?" While this may make sense, it's similar to taking half of the prescribed amount of your medication. You may make your program cheaper, however the amount of product you receive will not be sufficient to keep your lawn healthy and weed free.
