TOTAL Lawn Care

 Our TOTAL Lawn Care service sets the standard in the lawn care business. Lawn fertilizer, insect, weed, and disease control are offered by many companies. Not all providers go about it the same way. We treat your lawn according to what it needs, not a "one-size-fits-all" solution. TOTAL Lawn Care consists of 6 bi-monthly applications per year to provide optimum fertilizer to your St. Augustine lawn and prevent insects and weeds. We use our very own custom granular fertilizer to obtain a deep green color and achieve a thick and vigorously growing turfgrass that can withstand the stresses of our extreme Florida Summer weather. We apply products that are custom-mixed to the specific needs of your property. Any deficiency observed is identified and the corresponding products are applied to correct the problem(s) observed. Insecticides are applied during the course of the growing season and as needed the rest of the year to protect turfgrass from lawn-damaging as well as nuisance insects. All treatable weeds are treated throughout the year BEFORE and AFTER they emerge and become visible. We even treat the pesky crabgrass that many providers will not treat for. Products are also applied as needed to protect the lawn from diseases such as Brown Patch fungus during Fall / Winter and Grey Leaf Spot fungus during the Summer. We will also perform corrective soil pH balancing applications if ever required at no extra charge. Follow ups and Service Calls are also included at no additional charge. There will never be additional charges for anything that your lawn may require that is in addition to the standard application. This is what a PREMIUM lawn care service will get you. Our TOTAL Lawn Care service comes with a Turf Replacement Guarantee for insect damage. Peace of mind. TOTAL Protection. Guaranteed. 

TOTAL Shrub Care

  Our TOTAL Shrub Care service will transform your landscape plants into dense, colorful, and vibrant specimens that will set the standard in your neighborhood. The service consists of 6 bi-monthly applications per year. A custom granular fertilizer is applied to obtain vivid leaf color and density for lush and healthy-looking ornamental plants throughout your property. Liquid fertilizers may also be used throughout the growing season to boost weak or more nutrient-hungry plants. A liquid formulation incorporating systemic, contact insecticides, along with wide-spectrum fungicides provide protection year round from damaging insects and diseases. The TOTAL Shrub Care service is backed with a Shrub Replacement Guarantee should a treated plant ever suffer insect damage warranting replacement.

TOTAL Palm / Tree Care

This service is specifically tailored to protect and enhance larger (specimen) palms such as Medjool, Bismark, Mule, and Canary Date palms, among others, as well as large trees over 15 feet in height. The TOTAL Palm / Tree Care service is performed on a quarterly schedule (4 applications per year).  Palms have different nutritional requirements and utilize Manganese, Magnesium, and Iron in greater proportions than smaller ornamentals. Our applications address palms' nutritional requirements to keep them healthy and vibrant. We also perform foliar sprays and drenches to protect palms and trees from dangerous pests and pathogens that could harm and damage a specimen quickly. 

Mosquito Reduction

Mosquitoes harbor in areas that are generally not able to be treated with our lawn or shrub spray treatments and require specific treatment methods to target them in the areas where they rest and breed. Our Mosquito Reduction service is performed on a monthly schedule from March through September (7 applications a year). We start with a thorough inspection of the property to identify stagnate water sources where mosquitoes breed. When possible, we remove (empty) these breeding points on the property. If the water cannot be emptied, a larvicide is applied to the stagnate water sources to eliminate the emergence of new flying adults. We then perform a misting application to all vertical as well as horizontal surface areas within the property. This treatment will make a significant difference in reducing mosquito populations on larger properties (one quarter acre or larger), Smaller properties may see activity before the next service comes due as fliers will encroach from adjacent untreated areas which may be closer to the primary structure. We will tailor our treatments to the specific needs of your property to be as effective as possible, without encroaching on your neighbors...

Insect Only

The Insect Only service is an economical solution to keeping insects away from the ground surface areas of your property. All ground areas will be treated with an insecticide spray to prevent / control a vast array of insects, to include fleas, ticks, fireants, spiders, as well as turf-damaging insects such as chinch bugs and sod webworms. The Insect Only service is performed on a bi-monthly schedule (6 times a year). This service is mainly intended to treat areas with little or no viable turf, where conditions warrant the need to treat for insects but no fertilizer or weed control treatments are necessary. A backyard that serves as a playground for the kids and pets, where traffic is an issue, or one without an irrigation system may not benefit from a "full service" TOTAL Lawn Care application, but an Insect Only treatment will keep fireants from biting your children or fleas away from your pet dog and becoming a problem. No fertilizer or weed control applications are performed with this service. We do not perform Insect Only on properties with viable turfgrass that can be fully serviced with our TOTAL Lawn Care.

Irrigation Repair / Maintenance

Irrigation systems require a moderate amount of maintenance and need to be inspected regularly to continue to function at optimum efficiency. Spray heads falter with time; they clog, get run over by mowing equipment, get covered by turfgrass, and spray onto the street side or house walls. Rotor gears may shear, O-rings will wear and produce leaks, controllers will reset to factory settings with the first brown-out from a lightning storm... Stuff happens. We do not perform full installations of irrigation systems, but we can repair just about any problem that may render an irrigation system inoperable and get it working the way it is supposed to.


We also offer an Irrigation Maintenance Plan to keep your system "tip-top". Our trained specialists will perform a complete inspection of the irrigation system zone by zone, head by head, checking for leaks, proper spray pattern, head travel, as well as adjusting duration and frequency of days on controller. The service will be performed on a bi-monthly schedule (6 times a year). We offer a Spray Head Replacement Guarantee. Should any irrigation head fail to operate correctly under our service plan after our initial irrigation inspection, we will replace defective spray head(s) at no additional cost for as long as you maintain the service plan. Additionally, the Irrigation Maintenance Plan includes a 20% discount from standard rate for any other future irrigation system repairs needed after the plan goes into effect. We make sure your system is working as efficiently as possible to keep your turfgrass and ornamentals looking their best.

"We PROtect your home turf"

Who We Are

Our company slogan says it all. We are here to protect your greatest investment and enhance the quality of your immediate environment. We have been working in the lawn care and pest control industry in Central Florida since 1998.  We are intimately familiar with the particular landscaping and pest issues that impact and challenge homeowners in the Central Florida service area. Our services are designed and tailored for our particular area conditions. We protect you, your loved ones, and your pets indoors and outdoors.


Our beautiful Florida weather is why we live here. It is also conducive to enhanced and continuous pest pressures that threaten both inside and outside the home. This requires constant monitoring and prompts the need for preventative or control treatments to keep those pests from diminishing the aesthetic quality and comfort level of a homeowner's property. Florida's subtropical climate enables all sorts of living creatures to multiply and thrive, sometimes to our own discomfort. Luckily, there is professional help a phone call away.


Professional pest control and lawn care services abound in our area, but not all service providers render service in the same manner. Service providers range from "bargain providers" who focus on providing service at the cheapest possible price and accordingly, must render applications and conduct business in a manner that corresponds with their cost of service. At the other end of the spectrum, the "established" companies have the business tenure and expertise to command a "PREMIUM" price for services in order to cover their increased operational overhead costs. Then, there are home services companies that offer their services at a reasonable price point and provide excellent quality work at a great value, no hassles, producing visible and tangible results that enhance the quality of life of not only the homeowners who use their services, but their neighbors who enjoy the benefits of tidy and welcoming properties surrounding their own. TOTAL HOME & LAWN DEFENSE is one of those great value companies in the Central Florida service area.


We service the following communities: Apopka, Altamonte Springs, Casselberry, Longwood, Sanford, Ocoee, Winter Park, Winter Garden, Winter Springs, Windermere, Orlando, Oviedo, Chuluota, Geneva, Kissimmee, St. Cloud, and Deltona.


Our mission at TOTAL HOME & LAWN DEFENSE is to offer and provide PREMIUM level services to residential Central Florida homeowners at a reasonable price to protect their health, property, and enhance their quality of life. We aim to give our customers the best service value for their money. We would be honored to have the opportunity to show what we can do to help you get your property to the level you envisioned always having and living the Central Florida lifestyle with TOTAL assurance and peace of mind.
