Lawn mites like warmth. Remember that fact when you see your lawn covered in snow. Where snow has melted and grass is showing is typically where you’ll find mites. Snow covered lawns are actually very helpful when spraying for lawn mites by centralizing the mites in specifics locations. Technicians are trained to identify, while on the property, if treatment will be beneficial or not.

With a standard 5-time lawn care program, you can expect Swingle to be on your property every six weeks. Depending on when you schedule service, lawn treatments typically begin in March after the snow melts, then again in early to mid-May. Most lawns are “cool season” grasses, which grow best from April through June.
Our program provides guaranteed weed control from invasive grasses and unwanted broadleaf weeds such as crabgrass, spurge, dandelion and many others. We provide re-sprays at no additional cost should your first application not be effective.
Clay soils are predominant in most areas of the front range. These soils by nature are low-oxygen soils, so aeration reincorporates oxygen into the root zone. Following an aeration, do not remove the plugs from the lawn. While they can be unsightly, it’s best to let them dry out and then mulch them back into the lawn when mowed.
It is recommended you wait 24 hours before mowing your lawn (see the note below on watering).
We recommend that your first application be lightly watered on the day of service in order to release the product into the soil.
We recommend a full 24 hours before allowing your children and pets on to your lawn after product is applied.

Colorado is known for its rapidly changing climate. It’s important to know how to protect your home’s sprinkler system in case of an unexpected freeze and your system hasn’t been winterized. To properly protect your system from freezing and causing costly damage, there are various steps you can take to get you through the night so you can properly winterize your system on a later date. See this link for an informative video.
As the weather approaches freezing temperatures, it’s important to make sure that all the water is out of your sprinkler lines to prevent damage and the expense of sprinkler repairs come the spring. Blowing out sprinkler systems as the temperatures become cooler in mid-fall is recommend.
As soon as fertilizer is applied to your lawn, it will require regular watering in order to achieve optimal results. We recommend activating your sprinkler system in late April, early May.
No. You might actually find you’re saving money, as a properly designed and functioning system waters more efficiently with less water waste.
No. There is no definitive solution to rid your property of rabbit damage. Repellents and traps may work for a brief period of time, but eventually become ineffective. The best advice is to rid your property of overgrown shrubs and ground cover as well as “hiding” spots, which provide the perfect protection and home for these furry creates.
No, we do not treat for small rodents.
We’ll be on your property to spray for insects three to four times a year throughout the early spring and late fall.

Yes. Our spray application is specially formulated to target insects only. It will not cause any harm or damage to your soil, flowers, ornamental shrubs or lawn.
You should see less insect activity about one to two days after the initial treatment, with a noticeable reduction in two weeks. The effectiveness of your first treatment is contingent upon the level of infestation and your environmental conditions.
No. Indoor pest and insect control is best achieved with an effective outdoor application – keeping both pests and insecticides out of your home or building.
We recommend that your first application be lightly watered as soon as possible in order to release the product into the soil.
Yes, we guarantee our weed control applications and will re-spray if necessary.
Noxious weeds are non-native plants that disrupt native vegetation because they have no natural controls and are able to adapt to varied climate conditions. Noxious weeds are an invasive plant, which are not native to our ecosystem – harming the environment, our economy and even our people.
Common Colorado weeds include dandelion, bindweed, spurge, mallow, crabgrass, and foxtail. Swingle’s weed prevention products will help managed and control these weeds.
No. Swingle offers a separate bed and border program for mulched areas, low-growing evergreen beds, pathways, walkways, driveways and crushed rock.
Yes. Our lawn care program includes pre-emergent weed control to prevent crabgrass and spurge.
Yes. Swingle is one of the few landscape organizations in Colorado to be certified OSHA compliant. In 1970, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) was created. The goal was to help create a safer work environment by working with businesses to establish standards that are workplace-specific. The rules and regulations developed ensure workers are in the safest environment possible as set forth by OSHA. Swingle spends more time on training hours and invests more money in industry related training than any other Colorado tree company.
Additionally, many of our technicians have gone through rigorous training and are certified through TCIA (Tree Care Industry Association) and ISA (International Society of Arboriculture).
When utilizing bucket trucks, cranes and other large vehicles on your property, Swingle will lay down protective coverings in order to make sure heavy tires will not damage your property. Potted plants, lights, patio furniture, and decorative yard art should be moved from around trees before crews arrive to perform the work. Additionally, we remove your tree in stages, starting at the very top, to lessen the chances of the tree falling onto your home or homes around you. We work directly with the power company to make sure that electrical and telecommunication lines are safely moved out of harm’s way.
While some companies will promise you a quick removal, Swingle prides itself on protecting its staff and your property. Therefore, we factor in properly preparing and protecting your property and inspecting the location for electrical and telecommunication lines before removing the tree in stages. An average size tree should be able to be removed in one day, but larger trees might require an additional service day or days.
The best time to prune trees is in the dormant season when tree growth is not active and removal is less stressful to the tree. Some species of tree must be pruned in dormancy. However, trees can be pruned throughout the year if necessary, as long as proper precautions are taken to ensure the least amount of damage is done to the tree.
Professional tree trimming is essential to healthy growth. Dying or dead branches, overgrowth and interference (when one tree grows around and/or through another), creates unhealthy conditions, making the tree less attractive and more susceptible to breakage.
Yes. Young trees require very different nutrients than older, more established trees. Swingle offers a three-stage fertilization process to protect young and new trees from the time they’re planted throughout their maturity. Our fertilization treatment is specifically formulated for trees in Colorado.
Yes. The insecticides we use to combat EAB are placed in the soil or injected directly into the trunk of the tree. We offer both soil and trunk injections depending on the size of the tree trunk and your proximity to a detection zone.
