Did you know that the first plant growth regulators (PGRs) were initially developed to shorten seed heads of Bahia grass along roadsides? That’s correct. Once the effectiveness of this product became more well-known, it was quickly adopted and implemented by golf course superintendents as a means to improve the playing conditions on their respective courses. If it’s applicable to some of the most prestigious golf courses, why wouldn’t it be beneficial for your home’s lawn? It, of course, would be and that’s precisely why we utilize PGRs. Our PGR program begins around the middle of May and continues through the growing season on an average of 28-day intervals. This allows your lawn to fill out fully with little to no spotty areas and actually reduces the number of times per week that your lawn will need cutting.

Why haven’t I heard much about plant growth regulators before?
While most national lawn care companies don’t regularly mention this incredible option for your lawn care program, it’s one that has benefits that simply cannot be overlooked. In effect, PGRs will prevent your grass blades from elongating, which causes the blades to be more compact. So, your grass’ vertical growth will be drastically slowed down while the horizontal or lateral growth of the grass is boosted, which ultimately will improve the density of your lawn’s turf. Simply put, PGRs will cause your grass to grow thicker on the lateral level and less so on the vertical level. It’s a great method of ensuring that your lawn is fuller and is better suited to keep weeds from taking root, as there will be little to no room for them to become embedded and obtain sunlight.
