Mine are spot sprays. Large amounts of dallisgrass are an immediate surcharge/rec for resold.
No ! Your regular broadleaf weed control will not control those weeds and should not be inluded in the price. On small residential lawns I might spritz a nutsedge here and there or maybe some crabgrass but if you have a large lawn with nutsedge or crabgrass galore, you need to charge for those post emergents. At least $10 per 1000, and I'm cheap.
Nutsedge is optional--turgren does not include such sprays, in my experience--even as an option. Maybe its different nowadays.
I guess they do not trust their drivers to know how to mix up a batch of Sedgehammer in a hand sprayer. Their guys usually have the minimum pesticide training acceptable in their state. They can spray chemicals only under the supervision and pesticide certification of their manager.
I saw a lawn yesterday where the homeowner had Trugreen and it was full of nutsedge, such an eyesore! You can see it from a 100 feet away, really makes the lawn look bad.
I wish we could purchase Herbivore. However its illegal for lawn use. Same exact thing as Sedgehammer only you get 20oz for a little over $300. At that price you could tank mix.
One of our biggest selling points is that we include sedge treatment in our base pricing. There's so much of it in the builder sod that we tank mix it with our broadleaf control and go to town.
Wow. That can get expensive. Especially if maybe only a few customers get nutsedge. You realize that it is not preventable, right?
It’s extremely pervasive here, so it’s worth it.
I cost what I do because disease control, sedge control, and control of invasive grasses are included. Someone that wants to cut parts off, I do not want their money or business. Do the whole job or not at all.
Same. I have a bachelors in agronomy and a masters in soil science. I’m not the cheapest shop in town, but the expertise and specialization won’t be found at a lower price.
