Rain is actually beneficial for pre-emergent and fertilizer applications and there is no need to reapply. However, some applications may be affected by rain so, don’t hesitate to call and let’s visit about it!

Is there a charge for additional service calls?



No. When you feel you are having a problem with your lawn, just give us a call. Should there be a need for us to come back out, it will be at no charge to you!

Are some weeds worse than others to get rid of?



YES...absolutely! Weeds like Nutsedge and Wild Violets are at the top of the difficulty scale. Some weeds can pose real control problems and will need special attention. Call us today as our staff is trained to deal with them!

Why is it taking the weeds so long to die?



There may be several factors. First, the type of weed will make a difference. Some weeds are just more difficult to control and slow to die out. Second, the temperature will have a major effect on how a herbicide will/can work on a weed(s). And, from time to time, we just may miss one.

Can I have green grass in my shady areas with bare ground?



Yes. There is a solution to the bare ground areas under your trees and it is Fescue. We can prepare the soil and seed the Fescue for you. Fescue is a cool season turfgrass and cannot tolerate direct sunlight, but grows well in shady areas.

Do I have to be home when an application is applied?



No. Our services will be completed during normal working hours and upon completion, we will leave you an invoice describing our service and any notes concerning the service. We will hang the invoice on your door and include a self-addressed envelope to aid in forwarding your payment.

Does a pre-emergent prevent all weeds?



Unfortunately, no. Pre-emergent herbicides are wonderful and work very well on crabgrass, spurge, oxalis, goose grass, poa annua, and several others. These weeds are called annuals. Perennials must be controlled upon emergence. These are weeds like nutsedge and wild violets. There are no pre-emergent herbicides for these weeds.

What is a post-emergent”?



This is a herbicide that kills weeds after the seeds have germinated or after emergence.

Is insect and disease control included in the Jamison Lawn care program?



No. insects and diseases are not predictable occurrences and applications cannot be made for them on a routine basis. Herbicides and pesticides must be dispensed in accordance with the label. If we find an insect or disease present, our representative will prescribe the needed treatment protocols and bring the recommendations to you for approval.

Is your company licensed?



Yes. Our company is licensed in several states. Also, each employee of our company is EPA certified. We are proud of our Training and Certification program at Jamison Pest and Lawn!

Can I pre-pay for my lawn care? I would like to write just one check.



Yes. You may pay via the invoice we leave following your application or you may write just one check for the year. If you pre-pay for the year, you will receive a 5% discount.

How can I get a free application?



Just refer a friend, neighbor, or family member and if they sign up, we will give you your next application FREE! That’s right, FREE! And if your refer another, Jamison will do it again!

Is Bermuda better that Zoysia for my yard?



Yes and no. It is what YOU think looks best. However, there are a couple of factors that should be considered. Bermuda is a very hardy, fast-growing turfgrass that generally requires less maintenance. For an absolute answer, it would be best to meet with a Jamison representative to inspect and review the yard and your goals.

No, however our company has numerous contacts in the field and can make recommendation for your needs.
