Letter to Our Customers,

This year we are well aware of a more than average abundance of weeds, this is typical during years of drought or abnormally warm temperatures, causing weeds to germinate and seasonal grasses to begin transitioning.
Pre-emergent’s applied in the early fall of last year have shown to be less effective than in years past, the weather pattern over the last year has made weeds pop up quicker and in more abundance.
Lawn Tech has since 1985, used five timed treatments throughout the scheduled lawn season, while other companies use up to twelve yearly we stick to only five, the practice of using only five well timed treatments helps limit over application of chemicals, and helps our environment.
Lawn Tech practices “Integrated Pest Management” a term coined by the industry to mean you only apply enough chemicals to be effective. This practice helps limit the amount of chemicals in your family’s environment, your children’s environment, and our drinking water.
Limiting our applications to five seasonal treatments can leave your yard vulnerable in the warm winter months especially if we have drought conditions. We could extend our five treatment program to include the winter months, but at what price? Other companies seem to abandon the ethical practice of being chemically conscious and add as many treatments as they feel necessary to make a profit.
Since 1985 we have tried to give our customers good value, free service calls and great customer service without adding winter treatments. In past years our fall pre-emergent was enough to carry our customers until we could service their property that next February.
This year the drought has caused more weeds than usual, however, without abandoning our five treatment program as discussed, we have every intention of resuming your applications as soon as possible. We are now actively servicing our customers with the first treatment of the year and without fail we will be at your property within weeks, if problems arise during the course of the season, please take advantage of our free service call program within thirty days of your most recent application.
Lawn Tech is very thankful for all our customers and we appreciate your understanding our need to limit the amount of chemicals we put in your environment by adhering to our five treatment program. Once again thank you for being a valued customer and we look forward to making your yard look beautiful.
