Our Lawn Care Services

Green Up’s Lawn Care Program is designed to help your lawn achieve its full potential. There is no contract, and the service may be discontinued at any time. We sell our lawn care service as a program, with six treatments spread over the course of the year. The services and products provided vary from treatment to treatment, as changing seasons and weather conditions call for different products.

The basic components of the program enable your lawn to achieve its full potential. Our fertilizers are precisely timed granular treatments, which are scheduled to minimize mowing and maximize the beauty of your lawn. Broadleaf Weed Control is timed to eliminate ugly weeds such as dandelions, clover, and plantain. Pre-emergent Crabgrass Control forms a soil barrier which kills the Crabgrass as it sprouts. Our Virginia state-certified technicians also inspect your lawn for symptoms of insect infestation.

We guarantee our service, and customers are encouraged to contact the office with any questions or concerns they may have.

Green Up Organic

We incorporate organic products into our regular program. Our summer fertilizer is organic and made entirely of (clean, safe) recycled material that otherwise would have been landfill. All of our fertilizers are organic or organic based, save for our pre-emergent crabgrass control. When we determine that the use of a non-organic material is necessary, we judiciously use those materials with a eye towards achieving what the customer demands with the least amount of excess or external cost.

Our People

All of The Guys In Purple are trained, licensed, and certified in accordance with Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. Typically, one person will treat your yard though out the year, which helps us become more familiar with your specific yard & how our program of treatments can offer optimum benefit.
