Does EcoTurf mow?
EcoTurf does not mow grass but specialize in lawn fertilization, weed and insect control and lawn disease management. We will be happy to recommend someone to you.
What sets EcoTurf apart from other lawn care companies?
Our philosophy of lawn care is less is more. Let’s work with nature and boost the natural biology and chemistry in lawns to create healthier, greener grass with fewer chemicals. We put so much soil boosting naturally derived nutrients into our lawn fertilization programs – we can say with confidence our customers receive a free organic soil amendment in every application. We start from the soil up for a healthier lawn.
Does EcoTurf provide irrigation services?
EcoTurf does not offer irrigation services but will work with you on proper irrigation practices and make recommendations throughout the season (soil moisture, mowing height, etc.) as part of our customer service. We have irrigation companies we can recommend to you.
Do I need to aerate every year?
Yes, Colorado soil is hard, primarily clay, and aeration breaks it up and allows nutrients to reach the turf root zone. We have two methods of aeration for you to choose from – traditional core aeration, offered in the fall, or our liquid aeration. The liquid aeration uses chemistry to fracture the soil on a micro-level – no marking sprinkler heads or plugs to deal with.
When can I take down the yellow flag in my yard?
A homeowner can remove the yellow flag 24 hours after time of service which we encourage you to do so that people take notice when a lawn is flagged and not become accustomed to seeing them and truly take note. The flag is to warn the public that an application has been applied at the residence or HOA.
Will EcoTurf notify us before coming?
Yes. We notify customers the day before we plan to service your property via text, email, or phone (if you do not have email or a cell phone).
I received notification EcoTurf is coming tomorrow to fertilize – when is the best time to mow?
Mow before we come or wait to two days after day of application. Water within 24 hours is optimal per watering schedule.
What do we need to do before EcoTurf comes?
Please pickup dog poop, toys, unlock gates and keep pets inside the day of application. People and pets need to stay off for two hours for every application.
When should I turn on my sprinklers on in Spring?
Watch the lows at night. The temps need to be consistently above freezing. Another rule of thumb is dig down and make sure the ground is thawed at least 12 inches down.
When is the best time to water my lawn?
Water in the morning (think early) anything after midnight is best. Water less often and longer to encourage deeper roots. We recommend the cycle and soak method for irrigation practices.
What do I do if I have a problem “dead” spot in my lawn?
There are a couple of important steps you can do yourself.
- Check Sprinkler Coverage in the area
- Put out small bowls around your yard and see if the areas are receiving adequate water.
- Check Soil Moisture (get a screwdriver or other tool and poke a hole and stick your finger down in there. Is it hard and dry? Is it moist and soft? If hard and dry, go back to step 1 and work on sprinkler coverage. Touch the soil in that area – often it is a sprinkler coverage issue and touching the ground will help you assess if it is dry.
