When can I mow my lawn after I have had an application?

We recommend waiting 24 hours to mow your lawn after it has had a treatment or products applied to it.

How long do I wait after an application to allow children or animals on the lawn?

Once the product has dried it is safe to allow children or animals on the lawn.

How often between applications?

We typically come out for treatments every 4 to 6 weeks, but this could change depending on your program since each property is unique.

Why do I have mushrooms on my lawn?  How do you treat them?

Mushrooms on your lawn is a sign that your lawn is healthy, which is a good thing. We do not do treatments for mushrooms. You can pull them and discard them or mow the lawn as you normally would.

How short should the grass be mowed?

Only mow off 1/3 of the grass blade, leaving approximately 3 inches, to avoid insects, drought stress, and weeds that could invade the lawn. To accomplish this, we recommend using longer blades.

Why do I have so many weeds in my lawn?

Weeds are in the soil and are transported by wind and animals. Hot weather and heavy rain affect how many weeds will appear on a property. Once the weeds emerge from the soil, they can be sprayed. Some weeds are persistent and need to be sprayed several times.

How long will it take to service my lawn?

There is a specific walking speed for the correct amount of product to be applied. Taking the hose spraying into account, a wide path covers a large area. It may look fast, but thanks to the years of experience and training we give our technicians, you can be assured that the correct amount of product is being applied.

Why do I have so much moss?

Shade, moisture and soil are a few reasons that you could have moss on your lawn. To remove it, we suggest raking up the moss, collecting it, and then applying lime.

How can I get grass to grow in shaded areas?

To help with growing grass in shaded areas, we advise trimming any nearby trees to get maximum sunlight to produce better germination.

How can I fix dog urination areas?

We recommend removing the top layers of soil and reseeding the area if you know that a dog or animal has urinated on it.

How soon can I water my lawn after an application?

After a weed control application we recommend waiting approximately 24 hours before watering your lawn.

When can I mow my new grass?

As previously mentioned, we recommend leaving approximately 3 inches of grass when you do cut your lawn. With that being the case, you should wait until the new grass is at least 3 inches high.

We used Moyer for the first time 3 years ago when we moved into our home and we have never stopped. They have since replaced 2 heating and cooling systems and installed a humidifier all with the utmost respect to our home. The office staff is friendly and always willing to go the extra mile to make sure you are taken care of and happy with the outcome of your service. Many thanks Moyer!

Just had our HVAC system replaced by Moyer. Thad, Dan and the third person (can’t remember his name, sorry) were fabulous. They were friendly, polite and just wonderful to have around. We have been using Moyer for ages. When we were told the HVAC should be replaced, we went and got 3 estimates for the job. Moyer was not the most expensive nor were they the cheapest. Since we know what we get with them, we decided to stay with Moyer. The install took 2 days and when they were done, they cleaned up better than when they first went down to the basement. I definitely would recommend Moyer.

We have been a Moyer customer for over 20 years for oil delivery and pest control. Moyer just replaced our oil tank. The guys were great! They were very respectful of my home when removing and installing the new tank in our basement. They were courteous, friendly, and explained everything I needed to know about the installation and operation of the new tank. Highly satisfied customer here!!
