"The job went great. They turned a disaster into the prettiest lawn on the block. The retaining wall is beautiful as well. We really enjoyed working with Mr.
" and his crew was professional and fast. Hope to work with them again in the future. Highly recommend them!

"The owner gets an overall A rating for being easy and pleasant to deal with. The weak point: he was not so responsive in scheduling. He said he would call me one" week to schedule and it didn't happen, so I had to call him. He called back that same day in the evening and set it up for the next week on Saturday. It's not like I had a seal coating emergency or anything, but I had paid in advance and was concerned the service wouldn't happen. He explained he was behind because of the extremely wet weather during the first part of
. That's true. It was wet. And he said his office person had a personal emergency to deal with. This can create real difficulty for a small business. So that's the reason I was flexible with my rating. I would recommend Fairway. They seal coated our small dirveway of about 450 square feet in less than an hour. It would have taken me much longer. Another plus: the price was right.

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.

was courteous and professional from the time I ordered the service to the completion of the service. I called to get an approximate time window for the service and they were right on time. The associate handling phone could not be more responsive. The technician on the job was very pleasant, just all around job well done by all.

After the initial visit we never saw anyone again. No phone calls to remind us of the quarterly service and no service people showed up. I know they're not just coming when I'm not home wither because our property is gated *and* I work from home.
Anyway, I complained once and they sent someone. But I am not really into nagging people to do their jobs so I just let it go. Money down the drain.
Today they called me and asked me if I wanted to review. I said no.

We pay quite a lot for this service. They don't apply weed

around retaining walls by the sidewalk or on our gravel path. They send someone different out every time, and while the lawn looked good the first summer, it's now looking horrible. Once someone said it was dry and sunny out, and as he was finishing up applying, it started to pour down raining. Every time there is an issue with the lawn and we call to discuss it-such as "the lawn has turned hideous and brown the day after you applied weed

" or "you said you'd slit seed the back yard and you just went back there and tossed seed down (which we did and it didn't work), they make up one excuse after another as to why this isn't their doing or why it didn't work (it's too shady). That might be the case, however, you shouldn't have SEEDED the lawn in the first place if you knew it was too shady. At least give me my money back. But no, it's not their fault, so you pay no matter what. Sure, they'll send someone out immediately to "look at it", but they don't do much to address any issues. They are VERY expensive for not only the weed/feed but also lawn mowing. My yard is MAYBE 600 square feet, and they wanted 50 dollars just to mow. It's a 10 minute job. I would recommend you find another company for this service unless you like wasting your money.

I've used them for many years. Never had a complaint. I'm usually not home when the service is performed, and a thorough report is left (This has improved over the year)..

He never returned my message. Pretty rude and unprofessional. If he was busy, he could have had the courtesy to say that he couldn't take on new clients and I would have understood.
Your question below about where the service was provided is irrelevant because he never performed the service! You need to restructure your question.

Chemicals used are not quite as effective as those used by TruGreen, but TruGreen is not available in my area. (Had TruGreen in my previous house.) Cost for 5 applications/year seemed a bit excessive, so only use 3 -- like my next-door neighbor

Company was highly responsive to my concerns that the chemical spray had damaged my annuals and made multiple calls to discuss, evaluate and rectify the issue to my satisfaction.
