Lawn Fertilization & Weed Control

  • Norman Fertilizer Ordinance

    Norman Fertilizer Ordinance

    In 2017, City of Norman has identified Lake Thunderbird as having impaired water quality due to increased algae production caused by excess phosphorus in the lake.  Phosphorus is found in a lot of traditional fertilizers and can be carried by storm runoff into our water bodies that we use as drinking water.  To help protect our local waterways, the City of Norman adopted an ordinance regulating the use of manufactured fertilizers.

    Lawn Care companies now have to register with the City of Norman if they use phosphorus fertilizers and the city will limit the use of phosphorus fertilizers.

     

    How does this effect you as an Irish Green Customer?

    As many of you know, in 2017 we upgraded our program to be a more environmentally friendly alternative to traditional weed control programs. We want to provide you with the safest lawn care possible for your pets, children, and our local water ways. One way we accomplish that is we DO NOT use phosphorus containing fertilizers. 

    You can rest easy knowing that your Irish Green lawn is safe for Lake Thunderbird and all other local waterways.

  • Flea And Tick Treatments

     

    Since day one, taking care of the lawn, while also caring for our pets at the same time, has always been a top priority at Irish Green Lawn care. I often tease my husband and his family that they all love pets so much that you have to watch them closely as one can blink and they have their own zoos. So even in the “old days” when we used a traditional synthetic chemical program, we would have never used any products that we would be concerned about harming our pets. 

    Personally, I live in the most horrible breeding ground for fleas and ticks. We have a 10-acre field on one side of our property that is only brush hogged once or twice a year (grass is normally 5-6 foot high). We have a tiny creek that runs behind our house. (standing water puts it mildly). Then also neighborhoods all around, full of pets and more trees than a lot of city lots.

     

     

    Common Questions about Flea and Tick Treatments:

    When do we apply the treatment?

    We will apply the first series of two apps at the same time as Round 2- so just blink a couple of times and it will be flea/tick season.

    Do I need to reschedule the treatment every year?

    This is a recurring treatment. It will be automatically rescheduled every year until you let us know otherwise.

    How long does the treatment last?

    The label on the flea and tick product states that it should last 30 days. We recommend doing the two flea and tick apps 10-14 days apart. (One round to kill the adult bugs and the second round to kill any eggs that might have hatched.)
