Although everyone would love to have a perfect lawn, this is not a realistic expectation for many reasons. It is reasonable to expect a healthier lawn, with fewer weeds, and improved soil conditions year after year.
Our goal is to manage or restrict the growth of undesirable plants (weeds), while maintaining and improving the desirable plants (turfgrass).
