UNIQUE LAWNSCAPE LLC
Answer: True
Explanation: OTC product cant be fully trusted. i.e. During my first couple of years in the business I used OTC products like fertilizer. This product claimed it could be used Any Time of year. I applied the correct amount on a high end yard. Two weeks later the entire yard was dying?! When I contacted the company's support I was informed that there was a disclaimer on the bag (in 3 point font) that it should not be used once the temp. approached 80. This lesson cost me a tractor-trailer worth of sod and two days labor. Now I use and recommend only Professional products purchased from a Local Landscape supplier. Not only do you get a superior product but good advice is free.

EJs Lawncare
Answer: True
Explanation: There are many factors involved in applying fertilizer and pesticides on a lawn. All professionals are required to be licensed to apply these lawn treatments, and for good reason. Many homeowners and unlicensed service professionals just do not "know" what the lawn actually requires, when to treat, and how much to use to help the lawn thrive. By hiring a licensed professional those factors are worked out on a educated level to ensure the right product is used at the right time and in correct quantities.
