WHOLESALE ITEMS ARE NOT GUARANTEED
Lawns: We use only premium quality fertilizer, grass seed, and workmanship. It is impossible to guarantee the growth of grass or have freedom from noxious weeds. The proper care of a newly seeded or sodded lawn is equally important as the original installation. To assure growth, it is very important to keep the lawn moist until root growth is established. Consequently, grass will then choke out germinating weed seeds which are present in all soils. Seed work carries no guarantee.
