"These 2 employees did an outstanding job of cleaning-up my yard, front & back. They removed ALL leaves from my lawn & gardens as well as cut my lawn. They" bagged all the debris. And all this on a very cold day without the convenience of equipment they used in warm weather. Professional, hard workers. This is my ' go to ' landscaping business .

"They were booked during the time I purchased the deal. By the time I could get scheduled, we had about 6 inches of snow, so we had to cancel the deal.

How to Get Rid of Springtails

One of the most effective ways to control springtails is to dry out the infested area. Springtails require a high-moisture environment to breed and thrive, living mostly off of algaes that grow in moist conditions. They will either leave the infested area or die out. If there is an infestation that cannot be controlled by drying out the infested area, use an appropriately labeled insecticide with a residual time These will typically be a liquid concentrate form, a wet-able powder form, or a dust product.  DO NOT APPLY UNTIL AREAS ARE DRY.  If area will not dry naturally, use Corn Starch to soak-up any lingering moisture and otherwise 'steer' any rain water or irrigation away from area.

 

Also, if there is a noticed springtail infestation around the perimeter of the structure, use the insecticide to do a barrier treatment and apply corn starch to reduce or eliminate moisture. Caulk and seal all cracks and crevices and inspect potted plants before they are brought into the house.

I would talk to your local lawn and garden supply store (or mill and feed) - NOT a box store or hardware store. There are also selective grass control chemicals. YOu can research this by Googling using search string      "Tall Fescue Control" - there are lots of articles by the USDA and individual state cooperative extension services.

There is a treatment called chlorsulfuron TFC (Tall Fescue Control) that will do this - it worked for me in western New York, but took 3 years to finish out all the tall fescue. It may now be limited to use by commercial applicators - pretty potent stuff. Can yellow bluegrass or make it phytosensitive, but our looked OK during treatment because the TFC was applied in the fall for best results, and our lawn was dormant till spring anyway.

Tall fescue can also be controlled by real short mowing, but only in areas where the bluegrass is dominant and really thrives so will eventually crowd out the trimmed fescue, but you may be too far north for that.

I asked them to clean the over-grown side garden and along my fence. What they did was amazing and so unexpected. When I got home I found that they had cleared everything - side garden, front garden and the areas inside the fence. Then they cut and trimmed the lawn and cleaned everything. I am so thankful to Angie's list for having this "deal" so that we were connected. If you need a great lawn and garden company, this is it.

I contacted
Milwaukee Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
Lawncare to do my home fall clean ups because I herniated a disk.
Milwaukee Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
& I communicated over email and after some initial miscommunications about when I was available we met at my home to get an estimate.
I explained I needed mine and my neighbors front yards raked because it is our tree that drops in their yard and I usually raked them. We walked along the side of the house and to the backyard. Again said I needed leaf removal of both of those areas as well. Additionally, I needed one last mowing. I was given what I thought was a fair price for the work needing to be done.
After the meeting I received an email with a pdf attachment from

on 11/3/2014 and my mistake was I assumed it outlined the services to be performed. Here is where my mistake came in. I didn't open it.
His crew arrived and my wife greeted them and they said they were scheduled only to do the front yards. My wife explained this to me. I went out to discuss with a crew member and the gentleman said there is now way that was the estimate because "we would

our a****." I opened the for the first time thinking I could show them here are the services to be completed. It was just a letter saying thanks for the business. No details of services to be provided. I immediately called

and got voicemail. My wife followed up with a text and
Milwaukee Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
responded saying we never even went to the backyard! However he agreed to do all of the services requested. The crew did a great job.
I emailed
Milwaukee Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
on 11/5/2014 stating I thought the crew did great and clearly we've been miscommunicating and would be happy to have him out to review our property for a revised estimate. No response.
His crew arrived again today (11/13/2014) and only did the front yards again. My wife called to tell me this. I immediately emailed

discontinuing our service. I tried texting then calling as a follow up, but I got an invalid number message.
In person,

Best Service Ever:
Contacting At Your Service was very easy and they were very quick in responding. We have been using them for several years now and will continue to use them forever. Both
Milwaukee Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
and
Milwaukee Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
and their team go above and beyond to make sure you are happy with the job you have contracted with them. They are detailed in every aspect of the project, from the first phone call to the final walk around. Every project they have completed for us has been outstanding. They are extremely professional, detail oriented, and provide quality work in everything they do. They treated our house as it was their own. They are extremely hard working and even work in the dark, rain or shine until the job is done. We even won the Neighborhood Beautification Award in 2012 when they first started fixing up my yard.
We also have snow blowing service with them an it is also outstanding. We have an older house that has very narrow walk ways so the snoblowers don't always work. They use shovers to ensure that our grass is not damaged and it is clean down to the cement so that there is no ice build up.
I highly recommend them.

This team, lead by operations manager Geofrey, did an excellent job. The gardens were cleaned perfectly. There was not a single leaf left on my lawn, in my driveway, on my patio, or on my sidewalk. My bushes and trees were sculpted beautifully. This business is A+. I will not hesitate to hire them again.

I was contacted via Angie's list messages and asked if the service could be performed that day, it was a little short notice, but my girlfriend happened to be home that morning and I wanted to make sure that I or her were able to point out where my underground downspout was so it was not accidentally run over.
The lawn aeration and over seeding was done as the deal states, so no issues there, but I do have a couple of minor complaints:
1. The guy who was coming out was late and my girlfriend needed to leave for an appointment, they showed up literally as she was leaving, though she did not need to be there for the service, I wanted her to point out the spot where my underground downspout came out since I was unable to
Milwaukee Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
it because of the same day service.
2. I did not physically talk to anybody, it was all via Angie's list messaging and when I and my girlfriend did call the office when the guy was late, we did not get an answer and left messages, I still like to talk to someone if possible just to get the person behind the company and I also was interested in seeing what it would be to add fertilization to my service since I was going to do that as well.
3. I was notified via the note left at my house that the aeration and overseeding was done up to my firepit in the backyard because that was where the 10,000 sq foot cut off was for the deal, while I understand if that was where 10,000sq feet was, I would have appreciated a call or something to see if I wanted the remaining 200 or so square feet done (it would have been about 5-6 more 25ft rows with the aerator) since the whole reason I hired someone was because I tore the tendons in my shoulder the week before and could not preform it myself.
Other than that, there is not much that can be done wrong with an aeration and overseed, I just wish there would have been better contact and overall customer focus and a heads up if someone is going to be late since I stated that my girlfriend would be waiting to point out the one area in my lawn.

They were friendly, courteous and cheerful. The old bushes were cut down and the roots dug and chopped out. The ground was leveled and the new bushes were planted and watered. The bare patch had soil added to level and then seed, starter fertilizer and mulch. All of the old bushes were hauled away and the area was left clean and neat. I also got detailed instructions care for the plantings. I would certainly use this company again and recommend them. I am very happy with the results.

They have treated my oak trees. I've also had branches fall from my oaks and they've come out and removed them. They also trimmed them. I am familiar with them and I believe they do great work.

Called them on a Friday and got a call back on Monday, designer came out 2 days later and measured area. Got the proposal 4 days later, sent a deposit check and two weeks later designer came and marked off bed area and the crew came that afternoon and made the bed area and planted. I can't wait for blooms so I can enjoy the scent with my morning coffee on the patio!
