Lawn sprayers, often times landscapers by trade, offer many services to assist customers with their residential front and back yards. One company may boast all-natural environmentally friendly sprays and products for organic farms, while another may specialize in agricultural or commercial spraying for weeds.
Services may include customized lawn care, tree and shrub care, free estimates, seeding, and pest control. Many companies offer a website to better assist customers, offering before and after photos, tips, quote requests, and virtual and phone assistance. Qualified landscapers may come out to the property and assess the situation. Each customer's needs are different. One may have a crabgrass problem, while another may have an insect control problem. Most sprays should kill insects, weeds, and disease after one application, but some require several applications depending on the yard.
Whatever the case, most landscapers and lawn care companies can provide lawn spraying to address these concerns. They may use a variety of chemicals, such as herbicides, fertilizers, insecticides, and organic products in their jobs. They may also come equipped with sprayers, hoses, backpacks, air tanks, and other equipment.
Professionals operating in this field should have extensive knowledge of lawn care with many years of experience. They don't need specific educational backgrounds but they do need to have technical proficiency in their field, along with good communication and time management skills. Many landscapers own their own business, but many are employed by large lawn care firms. Many professionals keep up to date with the latest technologies in regards to lawn spraying, herbicide application, and other services by taking courses or enrolling in some type of landscaping association.
Since it takes a while for grass to germinate, lawn spraying professionals can advise customers on timelines regarding when they can expect to see improvements in their grass, turf, and gardens.
