Proper Hydration & Mowing

For watering, we recommend 1-1.5 inches of water throughout the week, which equates about 20 minutes of watering per zone five days a week. Watering should be done in the morning hours, if possible, to reduce the risk of turf diseases.

Our mowing recommendation is to mow the lawn each week as needed, keeping it at a minimum height of three inches.

Weed Control

There is nothing worse for your lawn than it being overcome with weeds. They’re unsightly and all-around annoying! It seems as if every time you pick one, three grow back in its place. Proper weed control techniques implemented by Independent Lawn Service™ will control your weeds to a point where they are no longer a nuisance!

Grub Prevention

Independent Lawn Service™ offers two products for lawn pest control and grub prevention. One will protect your lawn before the problem occurs, and the other will kill the grubs if they already exist and are causing damage.

Grub Prevention: After application, the grub prevention product must be watered in and will prevent the next generation of grubs from causing any damage. This application carries a 12-month guarantee.

Sub Surface Insecticide: After application, the product must be watered in as well. This application will kill the current generation of grubs and will prevent further damage

This is my third year with Independent Lawn Service™ and I couldn't be more pleased.
Independent Lawn Service™ has done a delightful job with consistent results at the last 2 homes I've lived in since 2014. They can revive and reverse a lawn neglected and over-run by weeds, quack grass, and other undesirable traits. I don't know what their "secret sauce" is, but they do fantastic work and are dependable if you need specialized assistance. I will keep using them. Thomas M.* via
