Noon Turf Care’s founders and principals Christopher and Matthew Noon donate a full year of complimentary lawn care for the silent auction at the “A Concert for Calle” fundraiser.
When the two founders of Noon Turf Care, Chris and Matt Noon heard of a sick little girl in their community that desperately needed funds to help pay for her care and the research of her rare and incurable disease they jumped on the opportunity to help. Tom Graf and his band “Aged Inventory” collaborated with the financial firm Standish to play a fundraiser show and Noon Turf Care was thrilled to help by donating a complimentary season of lawn care for the silent auction portion of it. The concert was a huge success and hundreds of people attended to raise the funds needed for cancer research. Principals of Noon Turf Care Chris and Matt Noon donate to dozens of these types of auctions per year to help raise awareness and funds for very important non-federally funded cancer research charities to aid the ones that need the most help.
“The concert and fundraiser ‘A Concert for Calle’ was a huge success and we were just happy to be able to lend a helping hand. Tom Graf of Standish did a tremendous job organizing such a successful event for Calle.” Says Noon Turf Care’s President, Chris Noon.

You spend precious time and money making your lawn look perfect, but in a matter of days, lawn pests can undo all your hard work. Common lawn pests like chinch bugs and mole crickets can turn your lush green lawn into a disaster with yellow patches and dead grass. However, it doesn’t have to be that way. If you suspect something is eating away at your grass, try a home test to see if one of the many common lawn pests is infiltrating your yard. A bucket of soapy water poured over a patch of your lawn will irritate the skin of bugs and bring them to the surface. Once you determine the cause, try a treatment plan to get rid of the pests. Of course, if you have a bigger problem on your hands call in the professionals..
Remember to take precautions when using at home pesticides and chemicals. They are often not safe for pets and may irritate a child’s skin, and yours, if contact is made. Always use protective clothing when spraying chemicals. Keep pets and humans away from treated areas for at least 24 hours.
These simple tricks can help keep your lawn healthy and free of pests. Have a recurring problem? For a stress free way of eliminating bugs and keeping them away, call Noon Turf Care and have us routinely check and treat for problems.
