Establishing a good year-round grass maintenance plan is the best way to keep your lawn green and lush all year round. Here in Atlanta, we are extremely blessed to be able to use our back yards just about any time of the year. Furthermore, carefully aerating, fertilizing, watering, and trimming the grass is important for keeping each blade of grass healthy throughout the changing seasons.
So, take a moment and think. Does your grass maintenance plan include insecticide applications? If not, here are three reasons why it should:
1. Two Words: Fire Ants
First of all, for Atlanta-area homeowners, fire ant control is crucial if you want to be able to enjoy your yard. Nothing will put a damper on a picnic quite like a swarm of fire ants chewing away on your ankles. Fire ants are most active in spring and fall, but they can cause problems all year round. For best results, we prefer to apply a fire ant product to the entire lawn. This keeps the ants away all year-round, and we offer a one-year guarantee to ensure customer satisfaction.
2. Perimeter Secured!
Secondly, applying insecticide to the perimeter of your yard protects your grass, shrubs, and house from intruding pests. To prevent lawn damage and destruction of other plants in your landscape, quarterly perimeter pest control offers the ultimate protection. In addition, the same service will also help keep the bugs out of your house. That’s right, four treatments per year can protect your entire property and everything on it from insect infestations. What’s not to like about that?
3. Bugs Don’t Care How Much You Love Your Landscaping
You have probably invested plenty of time, money, blood, sweat, and tears in your landscaping. Wouldn’t you be devastated if tent caterpillars ruined your prized Japanese maple tree? Seems like making one extra step in your grass maintenance plan can protect your plants from insect damage. Isn’t your yard worth it?
In conclusion, adding pest control to your grass maintenance plan is an easy way to add a whole new level of protection to your property. You want your family and pets to be safe and comfortable in the back yard, and in your house. In addition, you want to be able to entertain friends any time, and you want your landscaping to look its best when you have company over. And, pest control service can provide you with the peace of mind that comes with knowing your entire property is bug-free.
