Bayer lawn care solutions help lawns and businesses thrive.



Rodney St. John Lawn Stories
Wes Kleffner Lawn Stories


At 5:30 am, Craig Devereaux, Lawn Route Manager for Turfmaster Lawn Services, opens up shop, loads up the trucks and starts his team off. On Turfmaster’s first day in 1991, he was gearing up for three customers. Yep, three. Today’s task? A chunk of the 17 routes reaching more than 5,000 customers around Sarasota, Florida. Growth like that doesn’t happen by accident.







"Bayer has been very, very good to us. They stand behind their products, and they're there for us."

– Craig Devereaux,
  Turfmaster Lawn Services

Celsius WG for Lawn Logo

Celsius is a postemergence, warm-season turf herbicide that handles conditions many other products cannot. It has one of the broadest spectrums of control on the market and controls more than 150 weeds, including troublesome dollarweed, Virginia buttonweed, doveweed and bull paspalum. It achieves control using 25-75% less active ingredient than current postemergence herbicides and provides best-in-class turf safety on St. Augustinegrass and centipedegrass turf types.
