When is my mowing day, and what if it's also my watering day?
Your regularly scheduled mowing will be on your service contract. If for any reason your scheduled visit must be changed, you will be contacted to schedule for the following day. If your mowing day is also your watering day, we ask that you water in the early morning so that your lawn cut is even and looks its best.
Can I change my mowing day?
Our technicians will make every effort to accommodate your busy schedule. However, our routes depend greatly on your location. If your watering day is the same as your mowing day we will make every effort to mow as late in the day as possible.
What if I have dogs or other pets?
For the safety of your animals, please make sure that your dogs are safely put away and gates have been left unlocked.
Generally, if you have an automatic sprinkler system your lawn should be watered 3 times a week for 10-20 minutes at a time. If you have rotating sprinklers, you should water 3 times a week for 20-30 minutes a season.
How often should my lawn be aerated?
Aerating your lawn is extremely important to the health and livelihood of your lawn. Aeration is the process where "plugs" are pulled from your lawn areas. Aeration allows for more efficient watering & fertilizing. It also enhances root growth, enriches surface soil, breaks up thatch layer and decreases water run-off. At North East Texas Lawn Care & Landscape, we recommend aerating your yard at least once a year. Feel free to contact us at 972-235-6688, for an estimate.
What type of fertilizer do you use?
At North East Texas Lawn Care & Landscape, we use a granular, slow release fertilizer, so that nutrients can be released consistently over a 4-6 week period.
What if one of my sprinkler heads get damaged while mowing?
First and foremost you can have the peace of mind that your property is always protected by a comprehensive liability insurance policy. However, in the event that you do have a sprinkler head that is damaged while we are mowing, just let us know and we will be happy to fix it at no cost, either the day you call or by your next watering day.
What kind of landscaping should I use?
Landscaping is a personal preference. At North East Texas Lawn Care & Landscape our designers will work with you to understand your needs and fulfill your desires. The first question we will be asking is, "What are you trying to achieve?" Landscaping should be designed with colors that complement your home. It's also important to design in levels with focal points. Keep in mind, great landscaping is more than going to Home Depot and picking out things that look pretty. It requires a design that factors in the following elements:
Some Plants Need More Sun Than Others
Some Plants Need More Water Than Others
Some Plants Grow Taller Than Others
Some Plants Need More Maintenance Than Others
Some Plants Complement, While Others Distract
Our designers will ensure that you receive everything you expected and that the ultimate result is a beautiful yard season after season.
Why should my lawn be power raked?
Power raking will reduce thatch, the accumulation of dead and decomposing grass material. Small amounts of thatch can improve wear tolerance and surface saliency, and reduce water loss and soil temperature fluctuations. Excessive thatch reduces the effectiveness of fertilizers, watering and pest controls, and provides a habitat for disease and insects. Power raking will also help restore the turf following harsh winters. We suggest that your turf be power raked if thatch accumulation exceeds one-half inch.

Most perennials are pruned back after the first initial spring bloom and some perennials are not pruned at all. Perennials are meant to provide color, whether it is green foliage or shades of a bloom, all year round. It is normal for groupings of perennials to grow together in a landscape bed.
What height will you mow my lawn?
During the spring season, we will cut the grass to a height of 2 ¾ inches to 3 inches to keep the grass short during the rainy season. In the hotter summer months we will cut the grass to a height of 3 inches to 4 inches which will allow the turf to shade and cool the roots of the plant. As the end of the mowing season nears, we will again mow shorter to deter winterkill.
