"I purchased an Angie's List deal from this provider, and received a message back from provider regarding approximate dates for the service. About a week before" the provider came, they sent another message narrowing the date, and asked for the yard to be prepared (grass cut, sprinklers marked, etc). The provider came within the window they indicated and went over the entire yard. They left some extra seed in case of spots where the grass may not germinate, and also some care instructions. I walked over the yard and confirmed they hit everywhere (Aeration and seeds). I am very pleased.

"we had several comanies come out. we even had a company that saw how overgrown it was and wouldnt take the job. we delt directly with the owner " . he was so professional. we had a week to be ready for ouropen house and was out at our home at 7am the next day. we used him again after to update the front yard a little and he was again very speedy and he was the lowest price around. he went above and beyond for us. the yard hadnt been touched in 5 years it was a mess and he was a huge roll in us being able to sell our home.

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.

We purchased the $270 for 6 Hours of Landscaping special to plant a total of 8 trees.
Other nurseries were charging about 60% of the cost of the trees to install, which was no bargain. I had my eye on Agape's Landscaping special and when I was able to see the extensive landscaping job the did for my neighbor, I did not hesitate to purchase ...More their special on Angie's List.
From the first phone call to the last handshake of thanks, Agape's Crew were extremely professional, courteous and knowledgeable.
I spoke with who set up the appointment and was able to fit our job into their schedule within a week. A confirmation email was sent along with a phone call the day before to confirm the job and my expectations. The crew of 2 arrived on time, reviewed the project with me, and went to work for the full amount of time. All my trees were planted in some pretty tough clay and rock terrain, so this was not an easy pick ax job. The tree placement looks great and the overall job was well done!
I look forward to working with again. Much thanks to Agape, it was a pleasure to work with them.

and his crew were on time and did a great job. I got some great advice on future treatments... They left me some extra seed and watering instructions. I would use them again.

was one of 2 estimates. I had explained that I also wanted to included part of our neighbors lawn in the estimate. met with me at the house; the other lawn service left me an estimate on the front door and only for our yard. I appreciate the his service is primarily maintenance-based and one time services ...More are time consuming for them, but I appreciated him and his crew aerating and seeding the lawn. The yard looks so much better with more grass than moss. Our neighbors we delighted to have grass in their lawn as well. Thank you, and crew.

Outstanding work! was extremely reliable in returning calls, showing up on time and in everything else we agreed that he was going to do. I have had my lawn aerated, seeded etc.. by several companies throughout the 19 years we have lived in our home and I can honestly say that the work that did was by ...More far the best we have ever had done for this service. and his wonderful dad were very meticulous in seeing that every detail of the job was perfect...and it was. I will only use this company in the future for this type of work. Additionally, and his dad were so friendly that I almost felt that they were part of our family. This characteristic is almost impossible to find these days. Thank you gentlemen!

was great. He came and give a quote, then we schedule a date and they did everything I'd asked. This included mowing, aerating, 50 pounds of seed and fertilizer. They left the yard as clean as it could be with this type of work. I'll ask him to do the same work next year to keep the lawn looking good.

Such a waste. After working with to get an estimate and plan for our lawn, he completely fell off the grid and didn't come when he was scheduled. We had explicitly asked him to let us know before he came so that we would know to keep our dog off the grass. When I contacted him to see what happened (a week after he was ...More supposed to be there), he unapologetically said that his truck broke down - these things happen, and it would be a couple of weeks before he could do it. We spent the next week trying to find another service because we had no interest with dealing with this in the future. Imagine my surprise when I'm walking my dog one morning and see some teenager liberally spraying weed all over my lawn. No warning, no notice except up by the mailbox. After contacting he didn't seem to have any problem with the way that things happened. I know for a fact that the kid was on our property for less than 10 minutes. Terrible response time and unprofessional - we won't be working with them in the future.

To provide some background we have used Agape two or three times now and have been pretty happy with both the price and quality of work. We decided to do a fairly large amount of work in our back yard and to use Agape for the task. has been our point of contact since we started using the company, in general he's been nice ...More and pretty good about returning calls and getting a quote to us as well as executing the work. However, once we scheduled the current job and it has been down hill.
To summarize our current experience: They came out and started the work at the end of August with the plan it would take 2-3 trips/days to get the first half of the work done (the fur trees and seeding were to be left for last). During the first few days, the communication was atrocious. My husband worked from home to be here to answer questions since it was such a large job and two days in a row they cancelled at the last minute (this would have been nice for my husband to know since he went through the trouble to make alternative arrangements with work). Once they did come out, a one large tree was left (and some other work was undone). We heard nothing from about the remaining work. I e-mailed him and he responded saying the tree was too large for them and they would have to sub out the work. We waited and one random day we came home to find the tree cut down but that was it. I sent another e-mail asking when they would be out to finish the work and again no response or call back, but a group of guys showed up and took the tree and the remaining work again went undone. It has been over a week and I have called and called the main office and no one will return my calls. It has literally been a month that this has dragged on since they initially started the work.
Our back yard is now a giant mud pit due to the state they have left it in, the grass we did have has now died. Our walk way is stained with sap from the tree and more. There is still quite a bit of work left to be done and we are about to miss the fall seeding period. I have left voicemails basically begging for someone to call us back and no one has responded. My husband is furious as am I. We hired Agape in confidence that they would not only do the work but leave us at ease due to our past experiences with them. It's unfortunate and heartbreaking that now we are going through all this stress. I think we have decided after a serious discussion last night to give up on Agape and find someone else to finish the work. To add, we are confident it will cost us even more money now to rectify the situation they have left us in.
A comment to Angie's List. I don't know how it is determined to put businesses in the "Penalty box," however if your reading this please put Agape in the penalty box. Our yard is a muddy mess, the work has been dragging on for a month, and we are left to go through the trouble to find someone else. I even googled the company to make sure they weren't in local news for bankruptcy or fraud and to even make sure there wasn't a major accident in the past few weeks involving . There is no excuse for company's to do this to there customers.

They showed up were given guidance and still seemed tasked to bag up leaves they raked. Their tasks were so disjointed, they left the bags all over the place and had to be gathered to one spot for removal by us
