Q. Do you still service my lawn in the winter months?
A. Yes, our service visit schedule does decrease starting in the fall months. However, you don't want to just forget about the lawn in the fall. Without proper fall maintenance, infestation of weeds, pests, and thatch will cause your lawn to look neglected by the time spring arrives.

IRRIGATION

A. We charge an hourly rate plus parts. All repair work has a service charge included. If you would like a quote prior to having the repairs being done, a service charge of $55 will be charged to troubleshoot the system. Quotes are usually not given over the phone.

Q. What brand parts to you use?
A. We use all the major brands. We like to keep the brand names the same if we are replacing heads or components so you don't have a mix and match system.

Q. Are you licensed to install irrigation?
A. Yes. Our Texas Landscape Irrigation License number is 8635.


LANDSCAPING

Q. My shrubs and plants keep dying in my beds after replacing them numerous times. What can you do?
A. First of all, depending on the type of plants you may have, it might be a soil born disease or fungus that needs to be dealt with first before doing new planting. Give us a call and we further investigate your problem.

Q. Where do you get your plants?
A. We deal with local wholesale nurseries that are not open to the public. We can usually provide you with a plant that costs less than one that comes from a local lawn and garden store.

Q. How much do you charge for landscape labor?
A. Every project differs and you will need to utilize our free estimate to provide you with a quote for your particular project.

Q. Do you warranty your plants?
A. The only way we can give any type of warranty on any plants is if we are in control of the maintenance, particularly the watering and irrigation system checks.


FERTILIZER, PEST, AND WEED CONTROL

Q. Can I only receive some of the treatments instead of all 6?
A. The program is designed to work together with all the treatments because one or two visits cannot be omitted and yield good results. We suggest you enroll in the program for everything or just be on a fertilizer schedule if the service visits are an issue.

Q. Are the chemicals and fertilizers that are used safe for people and pets?
A. We ensure that our applications are applied correctly and in the right amount. Following the labels of chemicals is the only way to make them safe for family and pets.

Q. Can you use organic fertilizers instead of synthetic.
A. We currently offer synthetic treatments (not organic). There is wide discrepancy which is a better method. It all comes down to application techniques as organic pesticides applied incorrectly are just as harmful as synthetic pesticides applied incorrectly. C &C Lawn and Irrigation is trained and licensed to apply chemicals and we follow all state laws and regulations.
