Technicians Are Key To A Greener, Healthier Lawn

Due to the various tropical conditions we have in Jacksonville, the most successful way to maintain a beautiful lawn is to have a professional lawn service company monitor and treat your yard all year long. And because you cannot make grass grow overnight, it could take a commitment of at least a year to achieve the look you desire. However, just hiring a company to treat your lawn may not be enough. You need to hire the right company, a company that has qualified, knowledgeable technicians who are willing to spend the time to evaluate, monitor and treat your lawn. Unfortunately, in many cases, a pest control company will hire “so-called technicians” to treat lawns. While they may be certified, they really don’t have the expertise to identify pests and diseases that attack Jacksonville lawns. But here is the biggest problem. These techs are really commissioned salesmen. They do what they can for a lawn as fast as they can so they can move on to the next sale. The more they can cover in a day, the more money they can make. Over the years, Trad’s Pest Control has found that the best way to service customers is to have lawn inspectors spend the time necessary to study each lawn’s situation and determine the best course of action to take. We let them spend this time on lawns because we have put them on salary, not on commission. So they are in no hurry to get to the next customer until they complete their job. In addition, we assign two technicians to each lawn – one to evaluate and monitor the conditions and the other to apply environmentally friendly chemicals to address any pest or disease problems or to fertilize. We back that action up by photographing the lawn’s condition and documenting each treatment, which is then placed on a customer’s file available to them online at any time. The customer just logs onto our site ( and can see their status at their convenience. So when you are considering hiring a lawn service, make sure you hire a company that utilizes their technicians in way that offers you the best possible results for your lawn.
