Proper lawn care safeguards your turf from potential pests and diseases while nurturing it with essential nutrients to withstand harsh weather. It also ensures you can maintain a luscious green space without harming the environment or harming people and pets. In other words, investing in proper lawn maintenance ensures your grass is green and vibrant!

You can cut your grass after our product has time to dry, which is about an hour or so, mowing at 3.5 -4” height. Also, please remember to leave the grass clippings on the lawn. It helps keep the applied product on the lawn to get down to the root zone from being watered in from the rain or during your watering schedule. Also, the clippings are beneficial organic matter.

During dry times with no rain, we recommend watering your lawn 1-2 times a week during the early morning hours. The goal is 1’’ of water a week. Do not exceed more than 1’’. Typically, this takes 30-45 mins to get 1”.

We recommend 3.5-4’’. During the stressful summer months, cutting grass 4-4.5’’. 

80% of the water stored in the plant is in the leaf blade. The closer you cut it to the root zone, the more stress you will cause the plant.

It takes time to have a healthy, weed-free lawn. There are a lot of factors that come into play. Sunlight, water, airflow, and soil health play a major role in the plant’s ability to grow effectively. If the lawn hasn’t had any prior treatments in years past, expect 2-3 years of continuous service on a poorly prior maintained property and from 1-2 years on a property with some recent lawn care service.

Diseases occur naturally from environmental factors that are beyond your control. They occur during very humid times with little airflow. Excessive moisture resting on the plant combined with warm temperatures promotes disease development. 

At DTL Total Turf Care, we have a disease protection program to help limit the damage created by the disease. Please consider our disease program if you want the best chance at keeping that healthy green look during the stressful disease season in the summer.

  • Excellent customer communication. 
  • We use top-tier products with no filler.
  • We have a soil-focused approach to lawn care to help improve the soil in which the grass grows.
  • We offer specialty treatments that other companies do not, including fungicides, tough weed treatments, and restorations.
  • We help inform and educate the customer on best practices and maintenance tips.
  • We offer more time and care to each customer. 
  • We use pollinator and earthworm-friendly grub control.

Our professional lawn care technicians are here to take your turf from any condition to its full potential. That said, don’t wait too long, as fertilizer applied between March and April gives the perfect kickstart in Pennsylvania for when the grass begins actively growing. 

Also, fertilizer applications in late October will feed your lawn for the winter season and help it get through to the following spring season. Read more about this in our Knowledge Center.

Our commitment to client satisfaction means the utmost care and precision regarding lawn treatments. So, before beginning any protocols, we ensure that our team is well-versed in your soil composition through a comprehensive analysis. With this understanding of pH level and nutrition deficiencies firmly established, tailored solutions are created based on an individualized assessment – guaranteeing results you can rely on!

We take pride in providing only the best lawn care available. We guarantee full customer satisfaction without compromising our efforts to deliver the results you need. Our data-driven approach to soil analysis ensures we adjust for any deficiencies until you get the desired results!

To ensure a successful treatment, allow the product to fully dry to work its magic. Depending on sun intensity and weather conditions, this can take up to an hour or longer – so plan accordingly! If your pup needs outdoor fun during that window, no problem; just avoid the treated area until the surface is dry.

After applying the weed control, please allow for two weeks for it to take full effect. Should you be unhappy with its performance, reach out to us, and we’ll come to inspect your property so that any necessary treatments can follow swiftly. All you need to do is contact our customer service and ask for our technician to visit your property gain.

Safety is our utmost concern, and our proprietary application methods will ensure no leach into your well water. To ensure optimum growth for lawn plants, we use a specific quantity of products that reach the root zone directly for absorption into plants. We calculate precisely the volumes of fertilizer and pesticides per square foot and use only safe top-tier products and best practices learned through years of experience.

At DTL Total Turf Care, we devote extreme care to daily weather monitoring and only treat your lawn when the forecast conditions are optimal. That way, we ensure that our treatment effectively reaches its intended destination – the root zone! 

On misty or drizzly occasions, though? These moments provide an ideal opportunity: with plants more receptive under these humid atmospheres, enhancing results of application becomes all but guaranteed!

The EPA and PA Department of Agriculture regulate and test all pesticides, so the products are handled correctly, used properly, and applied effectively. We take pride in being excellent environmental stewards and ensure we comply with and follow laws and environmental regulations. 

Bees and earthworms are essential for a healthy environment and ecosystem, so we use bee and earthworm-friendly grub control, for example. Anything can be harmful if it’s not used properly. Our technicians are licensed, certified, and trained to keep our environment safe and healthy.

Brown areas on your lawn can have many different root causes:

  • Disease 
  • Grub damage 
  • Surface insect damage 
  • Dog urine spots 
  • Poor drainage
  • High traffic
  • Objects left on the lawn

To identify the root cause of brown areas, our lawn technicians will investigate its origin and prepare a plan with recommendations. Please contact our customer service to schedule an appointment.

There are a few solutions for you that combine best practices and training:

  • Water in the area where the dog urinated to help dilute the urea in that area to eliminate grass burns. 
  • Limit the volume of urine in your yard by taking the dog for walks in the neighborhood. In other words, break your dog’s habits on your lawn.

Many factors can influence the health of your lawn:

  • Watering 
  • Drainage
  • Disease 
  • Mowing habits
  • Traffic
  • Grass species
  • Weeds
  • Nutrition deficiencies

All these points can impact the health of your lawn. Hence, understanding the problem helps to find the solution. Please contact our customer service for help if the task is daunting.
