"They were okay in the beginning and then started becoming not as good. They jacked up their price so I did not use them. They were good for the first four or five" years but after a while, their quality started tapering off and we started getting more weeds in the yard. Then they decided to raise the price but their quality didn’t warrant any amount of money they were asking.

"Trimmed trees. Left huge piles of branches in street. Said it would be picked up by city. Said it would cost me more if I had skyline remove branches. City wouldn't" pick up, had to pay city $150.00. When skyline was finished the charge was $225.00. When I paid them I made a mistake and paid $270. When I discovered my error I called skyline and they did not return my call for more than a week. They said they were on vacation and would refund the overpayment. I have called several times since November and they never pick up. Emails come back undeliverable. I have given up. Chalk it up to lesson learned. My recommendation is never use this company.

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.

It went well. They're not expected to blow my yard clean when spreading treatments but they always do.
I use them year round for everything, lawn treatments, mowing my lawn, spreading mulch, aerating/seeding and leaf blowing in Fall. They also do a major yard clean in Spring which often includes planting any of the larger items.

created and built a beautiful combination brick, flagstone and gravel tiered patio with a French drain incorporated into the design to help with a drainage issue and to replace the huge square of white rocks that served as a "play area" for the previous tenants. The gravel curves through the lower portion of the patio design, like a river, catching the runoff that used to rush through my garage. When they mow, they also

I did use him before without any problems, and that is why I felt comfortable asking him to come out and do this job for me. This experience however was the complete opposite of my first experience. I paid for the spray and the mulch. He did pick up the small amount of mulch that I paid for, which was one half mile from my home. He had come ahead of time and he gave me a price. When he came back he basically tried to not do the entire job. He said over and over "I am not making any money on this job", which is extremely unprofessional. He was very eager to leave. He also said "you keep adding things" which was not true. We went over everything when he came out before the job was started. Also, per his request I paid him in cash. He was very rude and abrasive. I would never use him again or recommend him to anyone else. The situation was uncalled for.

came out and emailed me a comprehensive quote for a variety of services so I could pick and choose what I wanted. He was friendly, punctual, and understood what I needed. I had dealt with a variety of people before for lawn care and I was tired of getting haphazard service so I decided to go with the full maintenance plan with a 12 month commitment. It really gives me peace of mind to know that for $245 per month that everything is being taken care of properly. They are my largest monthly expense but I've decided that the peace of mind is worth it for me.
First, they had to get my lawn into maintainable condition and this required $195. Totally got my money's worth on that because

's team was amazing. I was almost thinking I should put the house up for sale after they finished because I had never seen the lawn looking that great. They did A LOT of work that day and hauled away a TON of debris. I had no idea it could look that great. I paid a similar amount to someone else and they half-assed it so I was very happy about the future with Agape.

's team and they usually work in teams of 2-3 and spend about 30 minutes weekly which doesn't seem like much but they are efficient. There are some inconsistencies, however. During the quote I was told they wouldn't use a ride mower because it can damage the lawn however I've seen them use it before. Not a big deal since the lawn still looks great in my opinion. I was also told they would weed every visit but I have seen some weeds when I go outside after they leave to check their work. They are small though and I do need to have the mulch replaced. These are minor complaints and overall I'm still very happy.

Overall I give them a B. They showed up on time. The owner seemed professional at first. He brought one young worker with him and the two of them did the work in a reasonable amount of time.
Unfortunately, though he operates in
Raleigh Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
, he either was not aware of, or ignored, the City of
Raleigh Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
yard waste requirements which require yard waste to be placed in yard waste cans, bags, or, if using bundles, each bundle must be tied. Originally he didn't tie the bundles; I noticed this and called him to come back and tie up the bundles, explaining that the City would not pick them up otherwise. He came back and tied them, but he used a very lightweight , small string (not sufficient to hold the bundles together) to very loosely tie them. I picked one up and the string broke and sticks went everywhere. There were about 10 bundles, and the yard waste truck was already making rounds in the neighborhood,, so I had to quickly get some stout line and tie up each the 10 bundles myself, just in time for the truck to pick them up. The owner should have known better, and once he was informed, he should have done a more professional job.

On June 24, 2014, we purchased four hours of yard clean-up from

Excellent! Mateas was on time when I called to get an estimate. He was professional and friendly. He said it would be done this week or next, and he showed up 3 days later, first thing in the morning. His crew was efficient and did a great job! Nobody was standing around and they left it just the way we hoped. we've had to pay much more than this amount with other companies, and they always seemed to be in slow motion, griping, and not sending enough people to get it done right away. Mateas had 4 people here with all the right equipment, including very powerful blowers. Usually we do the work ourselves, but the leaves get overwhelming, and sometimes we're out of town, so we need "lawn guys" for occasional help. we've found them now.
