But Is there a better way to make this work ? any adivce would be greatly appreciated.. Thanks

    Hope nobody has a problem with this, but you could get some estimates from other pest companies on your personal lawn. You can see their literature, prices, guarantees,ect. You can ask them these questions and see what the other guys offer. Most co's will suggest a basic 4-6 application program. Weed/feed. Other things will usually be extra. Grub, disease,ect.
