NORTON — Custom Spray Inc. helps residential and commercial customers care for lawns, trees and shrubs.

Located at 2441 Heritage Parkway, the 18-year-old-business is owned by Jim Warren and his son, Dan Warren, who serves as president of the company.

Dan Warren said the business has three areas of service, including lawn care, tree and shrub service, and mosquito and pest control.

The lawn service includes up to five applications a year spread between spring and fall.

“We all use a granular fertilizer and a separate liquid weed control,” said Dan Warren. “These applications are spaced throughout the growth cycle of grass and to keep on top of weeds.”

Dan Warren said the abundant amount of rain this year has grass growing faster than usual, and he suggests an extra application of fertilizer may be needed to keep grass healthy and less susceptible to disease. In addition, he suggests annual aeration to promote healthier roots.

“Aeration relieves soil compaction,” said Dan Warren. “In Ohio, we have a lot of clay, which makes it harder for roots to grow. Loosening the soil through aeration provides a healthier environment for roots and results in healthier grass.”

Warren also recommends customers get a regular application of grub control, especially if the lawn is not protected by shade. Custom Spray also offers lime application to correct pH imbalances of the soil and over-seeding to produce more lush lawns.

Dan Warren said the extra rainfall this summer has also brought more insects out, and grass, shrubs and trees should be inspected for insect infestations that can cause damage. Custom Spray has treatments available to address those insect problems.

“We have arborists on staff that can evaluate plants to identify problems,” said Dan Warren.

Other services include a perimeter pest control that is applied around the foundation of a house not only to prevent insects from entering a home but also to prevent their return and to kill them, according to Dan Warren.

Custom Spray can also address mosquito problems, which Dan Warren said are also out in greater numbers this summer due to all the rain.

“We look for mosquito breeding spots and address those, and we spray the property to control mosquitoes,” he added.

Custom Spray can also help customers deal with moles and other pests that can cause damage to lawns and shrubs.

Dan Warren said customers can call to get an estimate over the phone for lawn service and he can also send someone out to take a look at specific problems to make an evaluation.
