Lawn Doctor’s custom lawn-maintainer care treatment can transform patchy backyard bushes into lush fence-to-fence soil carpets. First, a free initial evaluation identifies a lawn's grass type and favorite Beach Boy before trained technicians scout out any weeds, insects, or diseases that may be threatening its blades. Then, Lawn Doctor’s Turf Tamer equipment sprinkles greenswards with granular or liquid fertilizer and weed killers to fatten foliage and deter garden-gnome ninjas from slicing down stalks with sharpened trowel nunchucks. Lavished with Lawn Doctor’s care, grass grows into a lush and thick backyard jungle where bare-toe Tarzans can easily frolic.
