Scheduling

How do I know when you are coming to treat my lawn?

We will email you at least a day in advance to let you know we are coming.

How often will you come?

Park City - 5 treatments a year (once every 4-6 weeks)

Everywhere else - 6 treatments a year (once every 4-5 weeks)

Can you NOT come on certain days?

Yes. When you sign up, tell us the specific days that we should not come. For example, "My dog sitter comes every Wednesday and spends the day outside with my dog. Please never come on Wednesdays."

If you need to reschedule for any last-minute reason, please respond to our notification letter that we send before treatment. We will reschedule your service

We do not work on Sundays.

Do I need to be at home for treatments?

No. However, please leave your gate unlocked so we can open it. Also, be sure to keep your pets inside the house and make sure your sprinklers do not turn on in the middle of the day.

Can you text before you come?

Yes, we can contact you on the same day as your treatment. It is difficult to give an exact time, but our technician can contact you ahead of arrival.

You treated my lawn and then it rained. Is that ok?

A light rain will help wash products into the soil, so don't worry. If we anticipate rain, we add a sticker to our weed control products so it doesn't wash off the surface of the weeds. If very heavy rain occurs within an hour of a treatment, we will come back to check on the application's effectiveness and do a free touch up if needed.

How long do I need to keep my pets/children off the lawn?

Wait until the treatment is dry (usually about 45 minutes).

How long do I need to wait until I can water?

Wait at least 3 hours to water your lawn after a treatment.

I have an outdoor event in a few weeks. Can you do anything for my lawn?

Yes. Let us know at least a month in advance, and we can give your lawn an extra boost.

Can I mow before or after a treatment?

You can mow anytime before a treatment, and as soon as 4 hours after a treatment.

How long will it take for the weeds to die?

Weeds begin to curl and die within 2 weeks, depending on the type of weed. We offer free weed touchups if the weeds do not begin to die within this 2 week period, but please wait for 2 weeks to make sure they aren't dying. Some weeds, like spurge and clover, die especially slowly. New weeds can emerge each week, so please keep us notified of those too. If you are a new client and your lawn is full of weeds, we usually schedule the second treatment soon after the first treatment in order to get all of the weeds that didn't die the first treatment.

Can I try just one lawn treatment to start?

No. We work to improve the soil, so this requires more time to see results. We only accept clients for a full lawn program.

Billing

How will I be billed?

We will email you an invoice within 24 hours after each treatment.

How can I make payments?

Contact us and we can set up a recurring payment directly to your debit/credit card.

It is also possible to mail a check to PO Box 1525 Midway, UT 84049.

When is my payment due?

The invoice is due as soon as you receive it. Once a bill is 30 days late, you will receive a late fee.

Lawn Care

What can I do to make my lawn look great?

Your lawn will look best when we work together. You play a huge role in having a healthy lawn.

1.) Be educated: Read our emails, invoices, and instructions. The more you understand, the better. If you have questions, ask us!

2.) Make sure your lawn is mowed properly: mow at a height of 3-4 inches. Make sure the mower blades are sharp and do not tear out grass. During the summer, you can leave lawn clippings to help retain moisture.

3.) Water the lawn: In Utah, watering a lawn correctly is vital. For proper watering techniques, read the following answers below.

4.) Be vigilant: Keep your eyes open for brown spots, potential fungus, heat stress, or insect damage. If you notice anything weird developing, snap a picture and text it to 435-200-3261 or email it to info@ecolawnutah.com. The earlier you catch a problem, the better chance we have of stopping it before it does real damage.

My lawn is suffering from heat stress. What can I do?

1) Check your irrigation. Run a manual test during the day and watch every zone to make sure that every section of your lawn is getting covered with water. Sprinklers should be checked monthly during the season. Heads often get damaged, blocked by objects or plants, and clogged with mud.

2.) In addition to watering 3 times a week for 30-45 minutes, run your sprinklers for a few minutes in the evening to help cool down the lawn.

3) Use a Soil Conditioner treatment. We have a product called Revive which, when combined with proper watering, can help to bring back the color of your lawn.

4.) Paint it. We have a non-toxic turf paint that we can be applied to stressed areas. The paint improves the look and color of the lawn until the natural green bounces back after the summer heat.

How often should I water the lawn?

Summer - On average, 3 times a week for 30-45 minutes. 

Spring/Fall - On average, 3 times a week for 20 minutes.

At what time should I water the lawn?

Any time between 2 and 7 am. The best time to water is 2 am.

When should I seed my lawn?

Spring:

  • Wasatch Front - From mid March to the end of April
  • Heber/Midway - April
  • Park City - From mid April to mid May

Fall:

  • Wasatch Front - Mid September to mid October
  • Heber/Midway - September to mid October
  • Park City - September

What kinds of seed should I use to seed my lawn

Each lawn is different, but most lawns in Utah require a Kentucky Bluegrass mix. This can be bought at any large home improvement store.

Do you aerate lawns?

We partner with a local company that helps us with aerations in the Spring and Fall. Most people prefer to do this early Spring.

Compost Tea

What is Compost tea?

Compost tea is a liquid compost which is brewed in a large tank for over 24 hours and full of living organisms. When applied to your lawns soil, it adds organisms back into the soil, pumping it full of life and energy. Our tea also has some food for the organisms that are already existing in your soil to help wake them up and become active. It is an all organic and natural product.

What does it do for my lawn?

Beneath the grass and deep inside the soil are organisms (hopefully). According to the Soil Food Web there is a balance and order of things and when things are in order the soil can naturally get most of the nutrients that it needs to grow and thrive. Most of the time our lawns soil is out of whack and balance. When we restore balance and order to those organism it is amazing what the soil can do. Your lawn can fight off disease and nasty insects with beneficial insects and beneficial fungi. Naturally occurring fertilizer that is normally bound up inside bacteria is released and the lawn looks good. Over time you can use less and less fertilizer and more compost tea - which is natural, organic and sustainable.

Where do you get your tea from?

We have a few sources. Our main source is brewed right here in Utah.

We use vortex brewers in our 60 + 100 gallon tanks. We use organic, worm compost from a local source. We add a few other inputs to make sure the tea is balanced with fungi and not to bacterial (this is what the lawns here generally need). After 24 hours we remove the tea (now full of life and biology) and apply it to your lawn. It has to be applied that day (after 5-6 hours off of aeration the organisms begin to die off) and then everything needs to be cleaned very well.

We run microscope test on the tea to make sure there is life and biology in the tea.

It is not a cure all miracle product

We love tea and the benefits it brings but want to make it clear that this is not a cure all, miracle product. It is one of our tools in a full lawn program. Tea on its own will not give you a green lawn (not at least for a few years). Over time we will use more and more tea and less fertilizer. We still need to use other organic soil conditioners and fertilizers.

How long do I have to stay off the lawn?

Our compost tea is 100% natural and friendly. We recommend staying off the lawn for 30 minutes if possible to allow it to dry and absorb into the soil with being disturbed. Also it is made from compost so we do not want you to get it on shoes and track it into the house - it could be dirty.
