Lawn Care Service Q&A
Are the products you use harmful my pets, family and the environment?
When can my pets and family go back onto lawn after treatment?
In most cases, you can re-enter your lawn after the application has dried. The recommended waiting period is 2 to 4 hours after the application. If a longer time is required, it will be noted on your service ticket.

How many applications do you offer?
Our treatment program offers 6 billable visits which include 12 treatments.
Do I need to be home for every treatment?
No, you do not need to be home at the time of treatment. We will notify you when we have treated your lawn.
How fast can I expect my lawn to be weed free?
It depends on the condition of your lawn. Some homeowners can see drastic results with one or two treatments, but you must give the program time to work. Getting your lawn in tip-top shape takes time.
Will you notify me before you treat my lawn?
If you are home we will let you know we are there. We apply treatments every 6 to 8 weeks depending on the weather. If you need special requirements, please let us know.
Did the rain wash away my treatment?
No. We are constantly watching the weather and will not apply if there a high chance for rain fall that would effect our treatment. We add “sticking” agents into our sprays which in return makes the product stick to your lawn. At the second of contact, your lawn begins to suck the product into its pores. This eliminates the issue of water washing the product off. We recommend watering your lawn within 24 hours from the application being applied. This also helps drive the products into your lawn.
Why are my weeds not dying?
Every weed reacts to our products in different ways. Some turn colors. Some wilt and curl. Some weeds take multiple treatments to suppress them. Mow your lawn 4-5 days after application to mulch up weeds. Even if the weed is dead, it will take time for it decomposes and goes away. Weed control takes time.
How long after treatment can I mow or water?
For best results, you should water your lawn within the first 24 hours from the application being applied. Mowing should be done 4-5 days after the application, but don’t let your grass get too tall waiting for the time limit. It is better to mow the next day than to have too much grass clippings.

ABSOLUTELY! We provide your lawn with all the right elements for a healthy, great looking lawn. All you need to do is follow the watering and mowing guidelines, follow our recommendations and you are guaranteed great results.

Do I need to aerate my lawn?
Aeration is a very important thing to do to your lawn in St. Louis, Missouri. Compact, hard soil is terrible for growing grass. Core aeration will loosen soil and allow water, oxygen and nutrients to reach roots. This will allow your turf to thicken and get stronger. Core aeration is normally done during seeding/fall but can also be done in the Spring.
When is the best time to plant grass seed or over seed?
The best and ideal time to seed in Missouri is the fall. That is September thru November. Cooler day and night temperatures help keep seed moister and not dry out as fast for germination.
Spring planting is not recommended but in some cases unavoidable. New baby grassroots cannot withstand the dry hot summer heat and ends up killing the grass before it is mature. We can further discuss your options during your free yard analysis.
Why do I have mushrooms in my yard?
Mushrooms grow in high moisture areas and normally associated with something organic in the ground under

I’m happy to say that we have one of the nicest lawns on the block since Green Elements has started their treatments! Great customer service as well. Easy to get a hold of, and eager to answer all of my questions."

"INCREDIBLY IMPRESSED with this company!!!! After only 1 lawn treatment our yard looks better than it has in years! Very affordable and it really works, not like a lot of the promises we’ve received from other companies. Prompt, courteous and excellent customer service. Couldn’t be happier!"
I have no idea how they do it but I really appreciate it."

"I couldn’t be happier! Awesome service from a conscientious business owner. Bran has turned my lawn from a mess to a fairway. Beginning my 3rd year with Green Elements!"
Dave Gambino | Facebook Review
"Wow! I love getting to work with the owner of the company. Brian’s committed to top-notch customer service and I love his passion for EDUCATING people on lawn basics & care. He spotted brown patch in my lawn right away and I’d already had a treatment by a competitor who said nothing. I switched to Green Elements b/c I know I can trust Brian. The plus is they are about 1/3 the cost. Wow!"
