Raleigh Lawn Aeration Reviews
We had three companies (from Angie’s List) come out to estimate this project for us. The pricing was about the same. We decided to use Agape Landscaping because and answered all of my questions and assured me lawn would look great. Well, he was absolutely right!
First, they killed all the existing crabgrass and weeds we called our “yard”.
Next, they re-graded our front yard, making it flat and nothing but dirt – actually, red clay.
A couple of days later the crew arrived with a dump truck of topsoil and all the necessary tools to get the job done. They aerated, put fresh topsoil in the front, seeded the entire yard, covered the new seed in front with hay, cleared and mulched the overgrown area and mulched the beds in front of the house in around 3 hours!!! I was speechless – and thrilled!
The front had new grass in a little over a week. Neighbors, who had seen the entire process, were amazed at how quickly it came in and how fabulous it looked.
We did have a small problem with a couple of areas on the sides of the house. The new seed was not sprouting in the mostly red clay dirt. I sent
Agape Landscaping has definitely earned our future business and I will highly recommend them to anyone and everyone!!
I originally asked for it to be done on Monday October 7th which would have worked out since that was when the next rain was suppose to occur but they asked for it to be done the previous week. Therefore I offered to seed it myself after the rain the following week so could they just leave the seed. As best as I can tell (I was in the house at the time), it took them all of 10 minutes to complete the job and by the time I went outside, they had left without talking to me before they left.
The plug aeration was a big joke. I play golf so I know what plug aeration looks like. They must have used super-light aeration equipment, I was hard pressed to find any plugs and when I did find one, it was less than 1/2 inch. They left less than 20lbs of seed as well, even though I e-mailed them indicating that I have about 9000 sq. ft of lawn, based on what I have read on-line, that is probably less than half the amount that I should apply. Now I understood why they left without checking with me.
So for my money I had a crappy plug aeration job, about 1/2 seed that should be applied and they didn't fertilize (which I understood given the circumstances). To add insult to injury, they left me an additional bill of $15 to cover for gas since I was outside their 20 mile radius.
The only positive note is that they arrived on the agreed day.
One additional note, I had to e-mail them several times to get a date scheduled and since there was already a number of negative comments on Angie's list, when they finally responded and gave me a date I agreed rather than trying to press my luck and have them come the following week when the weather was better for the job.
They have been out twice. The first time was a few days after we signed up, the second was a few weeks later just to put down the flea & tick treatment. Our yard had a severe weed infestation. For our first treatment the
We are pretty pleased so far. Most of our weeds are gone, and our grass is coming back a little. I don't expect to have a beautiful lawn right away, but hopefully by next spring it will start to fill out some.
Also, we had opted for seeding when we signed up online but they didn't include it in our package. I am still not clear on why. When they called to schedule the seeding we thought we had already paid for it, and were surprised to be charged for it. So be sure to ask if things are covered when you schedule them."
