How much do you charge?

All of our services are priced on a multitude of different things including size, grade, landscape layout, gates, etc. Due to this fact we cannot give you an estimate over the phone even if you know your lot size. We do provide free estimates. Please send us an email or call to schedule an estimate.

How soon can I let my pet out after you apply herbicide?

Most chemicals are safe as soon as they dry. If you want to be sure please don’t hesitate to call. The flags posted in your yard state list the date (which is 48 hours from when we complete the application) and it’s ok for re-entry. Regardless of what the individual chemical label says, the 48 hours is mandated by the State of Wisconsin.

I am getting estimates, and XYZ Company said they can do it for much less. Will you price match?

No. Our pricing is determined by a lot of factors, but primarily on our costs. We won’t compete with someone who carries half the insurance and uses inferior products or equipment. Remember, you get what you pay for.

Do you offer organic lawn treatments?

Green Cut Inc. firmly believes in environmentally responsibility and uses the safest products available. We do offer 100% organic fertilizer upon request. All of our fertilizer is phosphorus free and we are extremely conservative with chemical use rates. There is not a 100% natural weed control product available.

What type of equipment do you use?

All of our equipment is professional grade, late model and meticulously maintained. The brands we use include eXmark, Toro, Maryuama and Echo. You will not find any of the models we use for sale at any big box stores.

What type of fertilizer/chemicals do you use?

All of our products come from a commercial landscape supplier. We pride ourselves on quality, and use only the best products available. None of the products we use are for sale  or to be used by the general public.

What type of license do you have to apply chemicals?

We hold a commercial pesticide application business license issued by the State of Wisconsin. In addition we have full time personnel that hold a license and certification to apply pesticides in the State of Wisconsin.

Are you insured?

Yes. Due to the majority of our work being commercial, we are heavily insured.

Can you apply my products or use my equipment?

No, due to insurance and quality standards we must provide all equipment and materials.

My backyard is fenced in; will your equipment fit through my gate?

Depending on the service, we need at least 50” but prefer a 62” opening. If you do not have at least 50” we cannot perform mowing or clean-up services. Fertilizer/weed control services do not require anything wider that 28”.

How often do I need to de-thatch my yard?

This really depends on a variety of factors. High maintenance lawns may require dethatching annually due to vigorous growth while low maintenance lawns may never develop an excessive amount of thatch. Some thatch is desired to help the soil retain moisture.Lawn thatch is an accumulation of tightly meshed dead and living stems, roots and stolons that build up between the green vegetation and the soil surface. Any less than ½” of thatch accumulation is typically not detrimental to the lawn, but when more than ½” of thatch accumulates, problems may occur. A thick layer of thatch may contribute to a shallow root system, increased disease and insect attack, increased scalping from mowing, dry spots in the lawn, and reduced tolerance to environmental stresses. Thatch develops when the rate of organic matter accumulation exceeds the decomposition rate. Cultural or environmental factors that stimulate growth or impair thatch decomposition will promote thatch accumulation. Contributing factors to excessive lawn thatch include acidic soils with pH below 6, which reduces earthworm, insect, and microorganism activity; compacted soils with restricted oxygen levels which impair activity of decomposing organisms; excessive nitrogen or watering that stimulates shoot growth and infrequent mowing or excessively high mowing height.

Is soil pH important?

Incorrect soil pH can cause several problems. As the pH falls or rises too far from neutral it alters soil chemistry and changes nutrients into forms the plant’s roots cannot absorb. If the pH is off, you will have a very hard time with root establishment, and the lawn will not respond to fertilizer/weed control, or watering.

How important is it to aerate my yard?

Depending on your soil type core aeration is most likely very important. In this area of the state clay makes up the majority of the soil structure and can become extremely hard. Compacted soil can cause a variety of problems related to insufficient oxygen in the soil. Core aeration allows more oxygen to the turf roots’, promotes new root development and allows water to better penetrate the soil. It also assists in decomposing thatch.
