Lawn Care Results: When to Expect Greener Grass With a New Lawn Program


When it comes to lawn care results, you might be like a kid in the back seat on a road trip to Disney World.

Are we there yet? How much longer? When will we get there????? Drive faster pleeeeeeeease!!

Yes, we hear you back there asking, “When will I see lawn care results?”

It’s hard to wait. You want to start enjoying a healthy green lawn. You want to know when the money you invested in a lawn care plan will start paying off.

If you can just be patient, we’ll stop at the next rest area and get you a candy bar.

Meanwhile, settle in and we’ll take a look at how long it takes for weed killer, fertilizer and other lawn care to give you the results you crave.

At least your wait for answers is over.

Lawn Care Results: When Will Those Pesky Weeds Go Away?

Typically, you’ll start to see weeds curl up and die 7 to 14 days after we treat them.

But realize that every weed-killing product works at a different rate, and some weeds take longer to vanish than others. Then there are some weeds that won’t be fazed by any selective control materials.

Extra stubborn weeds might take a month to die back.

Some real tough customers like clover or Creeping Charlie take multiple applications of weed killer and a couple of months to go away.

So, how long for weed control results? Remember, lawn weeds don’t pop up overnight. (Although if you sat out there in your lawn chair with a flashlight, you might see it happen.)

So, they won’t go away overnight, either. Thankfully, you can attack some lawn weeds, even while the rest of your new lawn is taking root.

How Long Does It Take for Grass to Grow?

Once you plant grass seed, you’ll see it start to sprout between five and 30 days.

It’s always exciting to see those wispy new green sprouts. New grass, woo hoo!

But it has a lot of growing to do after that. How long for lawn care results? A new lawn starting from seed can take two to three years to become the thick, healthy carpet you want.

Remember, grass is a living plant. It takes time to grow and develop.

How fast your grass will fill in depends on several factors, from the type of grass to the amount of sunlight to the time of year.

Be patient, take good care of it, and look forward to parking your lawn chair out there.

Lawn Fertilizer Results: How Long Does It Take to Get a Nice Lawn?

So, your lawn is struggling and needs some help. Maybe you think fertilizer is the answer.

Sure, fertilizer is super important. It’s food for your lawn, and a crucial element.

But it takes more than just fertilizer to get the lawn care results you want.

There are lots of factors.

Your soil pH might be off, which means your lawn can’t absorb the nutrients it needs until it’s back in balance.

Or maybe your lawn is compacted, and can’t absorb the air, water and fertilizer it needs.

Aeration is a key part of achieving the lawn care results you want. This service helps to break up compacted soil and allows your lawn to breathe. The tiny holes it creates lets oxygen, water and those important lawn care products seep down to the roots.

Your own lawn care habits play a big part in your lawn care results, too, including proper mowing and watering.

Are you still in the back seat asking, “When will I see lawn care results?” When we tackle a lawn that needs help, with a comprehensive lawn care program, after three to four months you should notice it’s greener, has fewer weeds, and just looks better.

But it could take anywhere from a few months to a couple of years to get your lawn where you want it.
