" came to survey the area and provide an estimate. He was right on time, personable, knowledgeable, completely understood what I wanted, asked" pertinent questions and provided the cost estimate. and his crew arrived as agreed and started the back-breaking work: slope behind house with 30 degree incline and 30+ degree slope between fence and sidewalk. Total area approximately 3500 square feet. The first day involved three men working several hours and second day was a crew of four men arriving right on time and putting in 4+ hours. The removal of the massive amount of 6" deep ice plant, ivy, etc. took approximately 20+ man hours. was present to supervise and work along side his crew and every worker did their job fast, efficiently and exactly as we wanted. repeatedly checked with me to insure we were satisfied. When both slopes were cleared the crew did more work for a couple of things my wife noted and a few things that insisted and were above and beyond. Having dealt with this ice plant over the years and knowing how exhausting the work is, I can't stress enough how hard they all worked. After all the work was done to our and 's satisfaction his crew did a meticulous clean up of the work area as well as other areas. Before leaving to haul everything to the landfill again asked for our review of the work and our approval. After all was said and done we felt the job was more than worth the cost. This is the first time we have had work done by ( ) and would gladly recommend him to others and plan to have him back later when we have decided on other changes, additions, landscaping, etc. takes great pride in the work his company does and is a person of integrity, solid character, professional, trustworthy and a man of his word..

-Stephen L.

"I called to schedule an appointment and they called me right back. They quoted $90 front/back for lawn aeration and I made an appointment on memorial day. They" showed up on time and did an outstanding job. I purchased gypsum and they placed this for me on my lawn after aeration. I would highly recommend them!!!

Angie's Answers


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.



Lawn Treatment reviews in San Diego


First time I hired for this service. Friends recommended getting it done saying it really makes a difference, so I found this company, via the internet. Two young men came to the house. They did not knock on the door to let me know they were there. I realized they were there when I noticed someone in the backyard spreading my hand what I think was ...More fertilizer. It was spread spiratically and unevenly. I hope they touched on the areas that needed it most. They did not cover come areas of the lawn that needed aeration the most. Lastly they started to aerate a dirt lot in front of my house, so I stopped them.
- Deloris H.

They knew what they were doing. It was expensive, but another sprinker guy charged me about $180 and never even identified the problem. These guys did a great job and the lawn is not a swimming pool any longer.
- Anne W.

I just bought a new (old) house with a very big yard and the remnants of old landscaping and irrigation systems. The irrigation system was obviously patchwork and new sod had been placed in the front yard, but no work was done to prep the soil and it started to die from lack of water.I called 2 highly recommended Angie's List gardening companies, ...More one who came out and gave a verbal estimate but never followed up or called back when I left a message.
The second company was whose owner, , came out and spent a lot of time understanding the current situation and then sent me a proposal to fix up existing things, get it looking good and go from there. After viewing it I decided to also ask for a proposal to basically replace the entire existing equipment and make an "ideal" system as a basis for new landscaping.
was amazing, and he and his wife/ business partner was so responsive it was amazing. I kept changing my mind and they never got frustrated or were anything but helpful. also arranged for LC Tree Trimming ( ) to come remove a gigantic Ficus tree whose roots were unbelievably big, strong and long. removed the tree arranged root grinding, and trimmed the massive Queen palm in the yard. He did an amazing job also and at a fraction of the price other companies would have charged - but that is another story.
completed all the work and explained ecerything to me. even came to help with the work a couple of times. It was a very big job and they completed it very professionally, on time and on budget, and with excellent quality.
Now we will be landscape designing and installing, hopefully this week. I gladly contracted with them for twice monthly maintenance and feel confident that my yard will be very beautiful and well maintained. I recommend them highly for service, quality, and just plain friendliness.
- judy O.

provided me with a written quote for two projects. He suggested we do the cutting of the trees and clean up first, then do the hard scape. He and his crew showed up on time and started work immediately. The first project was done by noon and I was very pleased with his work. then scheduled the delivery ...More of the rock for that same week. They arrived on time and as they waited for the delivery, they finished all preparations for the delivery. They worked until early afternoon and did a wonderful job. I am so pleased with his work.
- Malisa N.

was punctual and showed up on the agreed upon date and time. They also had called me to confirm the appointment. The owner, , conducted the dethatching and ensured it was done to my satisfaction. Two other workers raked and removed all of the thatch that came up and both did a great job. Once the dethatching ...More was done aerated my lawn. The aeration worked wonderfully and showed me how compressed the lawn had been when we were looking at the plugs. Since he was already going to the dump his crew also picked up most of the plugs, so my lawn looked great once they left. They also applied conditioner to the soil and fertilizer. They were also careful around all of my sprinklers and drains, not damaging a single one. However, if you are planning on doing this you should take the time to locate your sprinklers and drains before they arrive, this will speed up the process and help them out. I did this with them in the morning and they marked all of my sprinklers and drains with flags, so it worked out great. and his staff were always professional and courteous. They did a great job and I will be using them again. is also honest and if my lawn didn't need thatching he wouldn't have done it, but we both knew it needed it. His dethatching price is FAR better than ANYONE else I called. I called three other companies, including two on Angie's list, and they were much more expensive and did LESS work. Most were charging $400 to $500 per 1000 square feet! These charges are unreasonable. They also didn't include the aeration or soil treatment. I can't state strongly enough that if you need dethatching, you call . Save your hard earned money and pay a fair price to a company that obviously cares.
- Matthew J.

The project was completed on-time and under budget. I could not be happier with .There team of guys are friendly respectful and will not disappoint. There quality and working knowledge is obvious. From start to finish they are by far a step above other contractors I have used. I recommend giving them a call before before deciding ...More on any construction project in your home.
- Rex R.

I had two meetings with and the landscaper who had just done a job for me on my front bank. is taking over the weekly gardening of this bank and took notes from the landscaper as to how to maintain the plants. He was very informed about the types of plants I have and asked detailed questions of my prior landscaper.
- Jolene J.

has been coming to my home for a number of years. The people they employ are technically proficient, thorough and are very considerate. They show up at the agreed upon time so I don't have to wait around to let them in the back yard (I have dogs), even calling ahead to let me know they're on the way.
