Lawn Fertilization & Weed Control

  • One Mean (Fake) Green

    Pre-emergent season has arrived in Oklahoma!  And the crowds cheer (O.K. maybe only in my head).  But these pre-emergent applications are the back-bone to all weed control programs.  Pre-emergents keep a lot of weeds from coming up in the Spring and early Summer.

    When I am traveling out of state, I am often asked "WHY do some companies in Oklahoma spray the fake green or blue dye onto lawns?  I normally giggle and explain that it is mainly a marketing technique to remind neighbors that it is time to get their lawn sprayed for pre-emergents.   (I often relate it to how I used to keep the oven door cracked when i had the broil setting on.  One year my grown daughter asked me why I had the oven door open.  I laughed -- because my mother and grandmother always did it that way.)

    At Irish Green Lawn Care we want to challenge the reasoning behind using green dye and give you some information on WHY Irish Green Lawn Care does NOT use dye. 

    • A lot of our customers have pets.  Take a look at the green dog below. While we know that brightly dyed hair is currently in style, we are assuming you aren’t necessarily wanting a bright green fur friend walking around in your house on your nice clean carpet.

    • Green dye has no benefit for your lawn or soil.  A priority at Irish Green is to reduce synthetic chemicals by using organic components such as probiotics and microorganisms.  These organic additions to our treatments allow us to use spoonfuls, rather than cupfuls, of the more harmful synthetic chemicals.  With that goal in mind, why apply green dye to the lawn when it adds no nutritional benefits and proves nothing except that green dye was put on your lawn.
    • Cracks in sidewalks and driveways. Our technichians  spray the cracks in the sidewalks, driveways, and right up to the fence line.  Additionally, we train our technicians to "trim around the edges of the lawn", where weeds often appear first.  After all, the grass is supposed to be green, not your driveway!   

    Another popular question - "So if you aren’t using green dye, how can I know that you actually treated my lawn?” or “How does your technician know which areas he has sprayed and which he hasn’t?”

    Each of our technicians are trained to notice the light natural tint of the treatment so that they can ensure that they’ve sprayed your entire yard.  We also train them to see their own footprints in your lawn. When you spray lawns all day, it is easy to learn how to see what you have or have not treated.

    However, we understand and want all of our customers to feel confident that their entire lawn has been treated and treated well. So we guarantee our services with a free service call, if it is ever needed.  More specifically, this time of year with our cold temps, after two weeks since your last treatment, you should be able to see the weeds curling or turning brown. But if you don't see this, we will gladly retreat those weeds and address your concerns at no charge.  Oh..and our customers LOVE this new feature... after EVERY application, we will send you a quick email asking you to let us know if your completely happy with each application! Simply "click the stars" so we can continuously measure your happiness!

    If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to give us a call or send us an email.  We also have instant chat on our website.

  • To Dye or NOT to Dye?... That is the Question 

    ​This time of year bright green/blue sprayed lawns are popping up, but you will see that Irish Green lawns are NOT dyed, and here is why we choose NOT TO DYE…..   

    Take a look at the green dog above; while we know that brightly dyed hair is currently in style, we are assuming you aren’t necessarily wanting a bright green fur friend walking around in your house on your nice clean carpet. Additionally, a priority at Irish Green is to reduce synthetic chemicals by using organic components such as probiotics and microorganisms.  These organic additions to our treatments allow us to use spoonfuls, rather than cupfuls, of the more harmful synthetic chemicals.  With that goal in mind, adding green dye adds no nutritional benefits to your lawn and proves nothing except that green dye was put on your lawn.

                                                               

    We want to take care of the “forgotten” parts of your lawn.   We treat the cracks in your sidewalk and driveway to kill any weeds.  If we used green dye, there would be green lines and streaks staining your cement.  We also treat right up to your fence line and against your home and porch/deck.  If green dye was in our spray we would have to stop short of these areas to prevent staining which leaves more opportunity for weeds to grow in that spot.

    So “if you aren’t using green dye, how can I know that you actually treated my lawn?” or “How does your technician know which areas he has sprayed and which he hasn’t?” you may ask….

    Each of our technicians are trained to notice the very light natural tint that our treatment does have so that they can ensure that they’ve covered your entire yard.  We also train them to see their own footprints in your lawn, and when you spray lawns all day, it is easy to learn how to see what you have or have not treated.

    We want all of our customers to be able to feel confident that their entire lawn has been treated and treated well. This is why we guarantee our services with free service calls.  If a week or two has passed since your treatment, and the weeds are not curling or turning brown, we will come back out and retreat those weeds and address your concerns at no charge.

    Irish Green Lawn Care is committed to excellent customer service.  Our goal is for you to have a lawn you love and your neighbors will envy!
