4 Methods & Equipment That Companies That Spray for Weeds Use in Memphis TN, & Northern MS

Over the years we have found that it’s not uncommon for homeowners to underestimate everything that goes into lawn treatment services in Memphis, TN and Northern MS. It’s not just the products used but also the methods and the equipment that can make a huge difference in your results. This is one of the reasons that when homeowners attempt to duplicate what their professional lawn care company is able to do, they ultimately end up wasting time and money.

Most companies that spray for weeds are using not only professional-grade products but also superior methods (“best practices”) and better equipment.

To help you get a better sense of how these companies help produce the best results, let’s look at how they are combining professional techniques with the right equipment. Here are some of the methods and equipment used for lawn treatment services.

1. Ride-On Machine Spraying

At Master Lawn, for large yards, we are using ride-on machine spraying for product applications of both weed control and fertilization. This also allows us to also have specialty spot-spraying chemicals on the machine with us and apply them as necessary while we’re working on the yard as a whole.

The best arsenal of weed control products is one that is varied with specialty controls available when they’re needed.Lawn care technician using a ride-on machine sprayer

2. Belly Spreader

Another piece of equipment used for lawn treatment services is a push spreader. At Master Lawn, we’ve recently transitioned to using a belly spreader, which is allowing us to be highly efficient in product placement so that we aren’t wasting any or leaving material anywhere other than exactly where it’s supposed to be (in the lawn).

3. Backpack Sprayer

Another lawn spray service tool is a backpack sprayer, which allows for the precise application of high-end specialty control chemicals. It’s so important that the application of such products is targeted to exactly where they need to go and a backpack sprayer allows for this type of accuracy.Technician spraying mosquito control

4. Ride-On and Walk-Behind Aeration

At Master Lawn, we are using both ride-on and walk-behind aeration machines. The decision is tailored to the size of the yard.

Then we are using push spreaders that are correctly set to properly seed the lawn as needed. Most of the time where people go wrong with seeding is in calibrating the spreader improperly or purchasing low-quality seed.Lawn care technician using an aerator

Combining Methods and Equipment with the Right People

While the right combination of methods and equipment is important, you also need people who are properly trained experts to ensure that best practices are being properly performed. The truth is, even if companies that spray for weeds are investing in top-quality equipment if their people aren’t properly trained, they’re not going to get the most out of each service they perform. Even top-of-the-line equipment is not going to make up for lack of training.

Ultimately, this is where Master Lawn really shines. Our highly experienced lawn care technicians and our focus on continuing education are what sets us apart. Sure, we are always looking to use the best products, equipment, and practices, but we also know that none of that means anything if our people aren’t well-trained.

While the assumption might be that all companies that spray for weeds have a well-trained, highly professional team, in reality, there are many companies that will just use anyone willing to do the work.

At Master Lawn, all of our technicians are licensed applicators. This is relatively uncommon in our industry.lawn care technician spraying

Choosing the Best Lawn Spray Service

Whether you’ve been trying DIY lawn care or maybe you’ve hired a lawn spray service that you haven’t been that impressed with, you might be looking to make a switch. Of course, you don’t want to feel like you need a degree in agronomics to understand what your lawn care company is doing.

  • Are they truly using the best practices and equipment?
  • Are they training their people to follow through on those best practices?

We understand that you want to feel confident that the answer to both of these questions is YES, even if you’re not completely clear on what to look for.

At Master Lawn, the difference is clearly seen in our results. Even without knowing what to look for, it’s easy to see that the lawns that we service look great and that’s a result of using a combination of not only the best methods and equipment but also having the right team performing the work.

At the end of the day, it boils down to being happy with your results. If you’ve found yourself wishing for a better lawn, then we’re ready to help make that wish our command.
