Common Sense Controls

How We Serve You

We believe in common sense controls (CSC). Right now in Texas, it is not possible to achieve a satisfactory level of weed control (in the lawn) using only organic products.  The products just don’t exist.

So we use our heads. We spot-treat (never blanket) our properties using the most effective products on the market. Precision Targeting  is the term we use to define our approach.

Together we can achieve a clean and 99% weed free lawn through Precision Targeting and good watering and cutting practices.

Common Questions

Yes. It’s kind of odd for a lawn company, but we have built our program and model around these two types of grass. We like to work with Bermuda and zoysia because they are more drought tolerant, have fewer insect and fungal issues, and are just really nice to be on. They are our favorite grasses and we have a great plan for them.

We have found that our pricing is very competitive for the area. We recommend calling around and getting proof for yourself. We are not the highest and we are not the lowest. For the service we give, you’ll find it to be an amazing deal.

We also just focus on the Bermuda + Zoysia which is different. This  allows us to be truly great on those grasses. 

This company is about service and creating a great experience for the customer, not just making money. We have already founded other successful companies and do not need to rely solely on this one for income. That gives us the freedom to create the company we’ve always wanted. We can put time, all the knowledge we’ve accumulated, and care into what we are building. We can use the best products. We can really do things the right way!

We do not advertise ourselves as an organic or eco-friendly company, but we are very conscious about what we use and how we use it. We use a lot of organic fertilizers in our lawn program along with organic soil conditioners. Our shrub program uses organic fertilizers. For our weed control in beds we use an organic product (an organic Roundup alternative). For lawns we practice CSC (Common Sense Controls) including spot treatments, smart products that don’t run off, and very well trained techs. We both have children and love the outdoors so we are very protective of it!

It depends on the program you choose. For our turf only program it would be 8 visits (about every 6 weeks). For our Turf + Shrub plan and the Turf + Shrub + Flower Bed plan it would be 12 visit (monthly)

It depends on the current condition of your lawn, your irrigation, and your landscape (tree canopy, soil condition, etc). If you have a decent lawn with a lot of good grass, then it will take just a few treatments to start seeing huge results, even if you have a lot of weeds. If your lawn is in really bad shape and needs a lot of renovation work then you should expect a longer turnaround.

We ask for you to wait until it’s dry. This could be 10 minutes or 30 minutes depending on how hot or humid that day happens to be.

The answer to this one is a little tricky. There is no one size fits all rule for this. It depends on how much volume your irrigation system puts out, the soil type below your lawn, the grade of the lawn and much more. It’s going to be different for everyone, but your goal should be around 1-1.5 inches per week during the growing season. It’s better to water heavier and less frequently than every day. For example, watering 2 days a week for 30 minutes each day is better than watering 6 days a week for 10 minutes each day.

We recommend watering your lawn and shrubs early in the morning. You don’t want to water at night. If the lawn sits wet all night you could get a disease. Start your watering early in the morning around 4am so that the cycle is done before the day gets too hot and the sun is beating down.

With Bermuda and zoysia, you really need to mow them weekly. (Some people like to mow twice a week.) If not, you will have a hard time with weeds in the lawn. These grasses are thicker down by the roots and thinner at the top of the blade. When the grass gets too long, it can’t fight off or choke out weeds. The weeds will crowd out the grass and eventually take over.

Bermuda and (most) zoysia grasses love to be mowed lower. Bermuda can be cut as low as ½ or ¾ inches (like a golf course). 

 

How low you can mow depends on how smooth your ground is. If the ground is bumpy or not smooth, mowing lower can scalp parts of the lawn, which can do serious damage. We do have a service that can help level the lawn by rolling them in the winter. 

 

Whatever height you decide to mow at, you need to start mowing at that height in April. With these types of grasses, you want to avoid changing mowing heights during the season. The lawn has a ‘memory’ and it gets used to the height. If you change the height mid-season you could risk your lawn going brown for weeks or even months

We highly recommend using a “reel” mower if possible. It’s fine to hire a service that does not use reel mowers. But we really love reel mowers. These blades seem to cut the grass cleaner than rotary blades. It really depends on how involved you want to be and the expectations you have for your lawn’s appearance.
