Turf Application Information for Common Areas
There are several products that HLS uses on the common area for fertilizer and pre and post weed control. All products are mixed with water and applied to the turf only. All of our technicians are certified by the state of Virginia Dep of Agriculture (VADCS) and follow all regulations that are enforced by the state and federal governments. It takes about two hours to dry after the product is applied to the turf and is safe then to walk on the turf. Once it’s dry, it is absorbs into the plant so there is no residual chemical on the leaves. It is a safe way to apply because the chemical is added to water and it’s a very small amount of chemical. The amount is 90% water to 10% chemical. This is a very environmentally friendly and safe procedure. HLS posts a notice near the property prior to the application along with notifying the HOA a week prior and post a noticed after application, once the products have been sprayed on the turf.
