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.

What Our Customers Say

I definitely would recommend Moyer

August 17, 2021

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 just made the switch to propane and Moyer’s team was terrific at guiding us through it. Everyone was great, from scheduling the work around our crazy schedules to making sure we understood how everything worked, we couldn’t have asked for a better experience.

They were punctual, communicative with every step along the way...

August 17, 2021

Moyer Indoor/Outdoor installers (Tim & Dan) are the utmost professional installers I’ve ever experienced! They were punctual, communicative with every step along the way, they didn’t blare loud music, raise their voices or use inappropriate language. I appreciated they were respectful by wearing booties on their feet along with having drop cloths leading from my front door to the basement. Tim went above and beyond keeping me updated when it was apparent the install was going to need an extra day. Tim explained the new Heat pump system to me in layman’s terms which I understood. On a scale of 1-10, Tim & Dan deserve a score of 1000!
