Lawn Care Programs
Our uniformed team of professionals will service your maintained turf grass areas based on the proposal description provided by us and approved by you. Our custom lawn care program includes timely turf grass applications to help keep your lawn looking great throughout the growing season.
The entire lawn care program consists of 5 fertilization applications, 1 limestone application, 1 fall core aeration, 1 fall overseeding, and 5-6 broadleaf weed control applications throughout the season. We offer and highly recommend an application of garden compost to be applied over the bare areas of your lawn before fall aeration and seeding. This helps with seed germination.
Our March-November Lawn Care Program includes:
(2) Pre-emergent fertilizer applications
(1) Insecticide fertilizer application
(1) Fall Starter fertilizer application (applied with seed, lime, and aeration)
(1) Winter fertilizer application
(1) Pelletized limestone application
(1) Core aeration & overseeding
All applications are properly timed and scheduled internally for best results. Depending on the size of your property, a 1-2 man crew will take about 10 and 50 minutes to complete the service each time.
The treatment of natural wooded areas or buffers, garden beds, or anything not in the proposal is not included in your service package. Potomac Lawn Professionals is further not responsible for the servicing of steep hillsides or unserviceable improperly graded yards. This increases our risk and the danger to our dedicated employees.
For broadleaf weed control applications, please stay off the lawn until it has dried. This includes pets.
For spring or fall seeding, please water your lawn based on our watering instructions for the best results.
Individual Lawn Care Program results vary based on the current condition of your lawn. If immediate results are expected, our sod installation service may be a better option for you.
Season Flower Rotations Packages
Make your gardens pop with professional installation of flowers at specified focal points across your property each season. At Potomac Lawn Professionals, flower options include Pansies, Begonias, and Vinca Major. Tell us what you want – we’ll take care of the rest. We’ll set up your yearly flower rotation and ensure they’re installed on time for every season.
2-3 workers will install the selected annual flowers based on this seasons’ rotations. It frequently takes about 2-4 hours to place them in the specified areas, which are outlined in our contract with you.
Potomac Lawn Professionals is not responsible for returning weeds or for flowers dying or drying out. Please make sure you water your seasonal flowers at regular intervals to keep them vibrant and beautiful.
Broadleaf Weed Control Application
Broadleaf spot treatment applications keep your lawn weed-free, allowing it to flourish. Amp up your curb-appeal with this five-application weed control package spanning from April to November.
Our broadleaf applicator subcontractor will apply a spot treatment mixture of broadleaf herbicides to your lawn. Five applications are performed between April and November. If you are not on a lawn care program and do not plan to seed your lawn, a sixth application will be performed in September or October.
Each application requires just one of our professional workers and only 10-30 minutes of time on your property.
We ask that you refrain from walking on the wet lawn after application. This includes keeping pets and children off the lawn until it is dry.
Expect to see roughly 5-10% of broadleaf weeds in the lawn at any given time. Due to heavy rain in our area, weeds can emerge shortly after applications. Be sure to let us know if you have any special requests for weed control applications.
PLEASE NOTE: Only the aspects of the proposal are included in this service. Weeding of garden beds is further not included.
Ornamental Tree Pruning
Potomac Lawn Professionals’ tree pruning package includes three ornamental tree prunings throughout the year. This ensures that your ornamental trees stay in tip-top shape and don’t get too large.
A uniformed crew, consisting of 2-3 workers from Potomac Lawn Professionals, will properly prune ornamental trees on a regular schedule throughout the season. Again, this maintains the trees, keeping each tree in proper shape. It often takes about 2-6 hours for this service to be completed. However, timing ultimately depends on your property size and the trees. Trees with flowering buds will be left untouched unless specified by homeowner.
PLEASE NOTE: Shrub or tree pruning outside of the agreed upon proposal are not included. Potomac Lawn is further not responsible for shrub diseases. However, we will let you know if we see signs of it and if we feel there is anything else on your property that should be addressed.
Shrub and tree pruning can be scheduled as a one time or as needed visit, or as a package job to ensure timely routine pruning of shrubs. Potomac Lawn Professionals trimming service includes the pruning on specified trees or shrubs and the disposal of debris. Our service will be based off of the provided proposal.
Our uniformed team of 2-4 professionals will trim the new growth or specified branches and remove deadwood from the specified tree or shrub. Upon completion, the limbs and clippings will be cleaned up and hauled away. Our team is trained to know when certain shrubs should be pruned. Anything with a bud will be left untrimmed unless otherwise requested. All of the debris removed from pruning will be hauled off in tarps and taken to a local recycling center. Potomac Lawn Professionals will use their discretion as to what branches should be pruned. Typically, this service takes about 4-8 hours per visit.
Flower Bed Maintenance
Potomac Lawn Professionals provides top-tier bed weeding services. Bed weeding is scheduled as a package throughout the 8 growing months of the year (April to November). Once you’ve set it up, you won’t have to worry about weeding your flower beds for the rest of the year!
A uniformed crew of 2-3 Potomac Lawn Professionals will pull and remove any weeds at the base of your garden beds. This keeps your garden beds clean and free from weed infestation. This package includes 7 visits from April to October. Each visit takes about 2-6 hours, depending on the property size and number of flower beds.
Leaf Removal Services
Leaves can leave your yard looking unkempt and disheveled. The leaves can further suffocate the plants and grass below, leaving your lawn looking less than ideal. Trust our Potomac Lawn Professionals team to take care of removing the leaves from your lawn.
Our uniformed team, consisting of 2-3 professionals will remove leaves from your garden beds and lawn areas. We will then take them to the curbside for disposal by the county or by Potomac Lawn Professionals. Typically, this service takes about 1-2 days to complete. Although, this depends on the size of your property. Our crews use professional leaf removal equipment and are trained to work efficiently, minimizing our time on your property and completing the service to the best of our ability.
PLEASE NOTE: Leaf removal is charged at an hourly rate. It starts at $55 per man per hour with a minimum of $145. If only a curbside vacuuming service is requested, a minimum of $150.00 is charged. If you have a budget, please notify us or let us know so we can notify you if and when the removal of the leaves exceeds your budgeted time.
FOR ALL LAWN MAINTENANCE SERVICES AND PACKAGES:
Please move anything from the lawn that would make it harder for our team to do their job, unlock any gates, and pick up any dog waste. If we cannot access the yard, the client will still be responsible for a cancellation fee of $55. Please let our office know if you have a code to the gate or anything that we should be aware of.
Call us or fill out our online form. Please provide as much detail as possible.
Typically, we’ll get back to you within 24-48 hours. During our busy season, you can expect some delays.
