"The two-person crew arrived on time, let me know they were here, and immediately went to work. It took about 20 minutes. I won't know whether the fertilizer" worked until next spring. I had arranged for lawn aeration and broad-leaf weed
several years ago with a different company (I now can't remember their name, but it was a national company) and was horrified at the results. Even though they had set a date and told me they would check in when they arrived, they instead came while I was out of town. They had obviously used far too much weed
because it nearly killed the lawn. I was much happier with Empire's approach.

"I was very impressed with the professionalism and honesty. It is very rare to find a company- one that you will deal with the owner- and two that you will find to" not be out to just make money. I was looking for a one time cut and now that I have used them I will be using them for regular maintenance.

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 And Yard Work reviews in Centerbrook

I requested a quote via email. They contacted me quickly to schedule and appointment. They were able to accommodate my availability and came on an evening to review my property and the work I was looking for. A couple weeks later I had to follow up because I did not receive quote, but they quickly resolved and sent me a link. Their quote for lawn service was better than my current provider, but I was looking for more detail on some specific landscaping work so I decided to stay with my current provider.

Our yard is pretty sizable, and we were lucky to find someone to remove all our leaves for a good price. We'll definitely use him again next year.

It went well except for some mis-communication between
Centerbrook Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
and the crews. Our plans called for a one foot extension on both sides of the patio. Somehow the crews did not realize this.
Centerbrook Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
was honest about the problem and I would not pay for that part and they would put in a 2 foot wide planting bed around 3 sides to bring things back into proportion. They did this but the patio still looked out of proportion, too long for the width. I suggested that they add the 2 feet onto the side with the water faucet. This would mean less work to be done over and still give proper proportions. The crew did this and I am very pleased. I ended up having them put in a 6 foot fence in the back yard and I am quite pleased with it. The fence cost much more than the patio but no more than other estimates and less than some. They had to come back and change a couple things to make sure the fence was close enough to the ground to keep my cat from digging under. It looks great now. I am considering having them dig and prepare planting beds in the front this spring. Overall I was quite pleased.

From the time of the initial estimate
Centerbrook Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
was the consummate professional. He took the time to understand all of our needs and provide an estimate that he and his team could deliver. Once we contacted him to schedule the work, he contacted us within 24 hours and we were scheduled for work to begin the same week.
Centerbrook Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
met us the morning before the work began to walk through and confirm the details and paint colors. He outlined how his crew would work including who they were and when they would arrive and depart each day. On the first day, he and the crew arrived on time and began. The entire crew - Rich,
Centerbrook Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
, and
Centerbrook Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
were very considerate of us and our home. They covered everything, cleaned up daily, and explained what was happening next. Due to our own error, we matched a color incorrectly, but didn't catch it until much of the trim was painted. The team was very understanding and worked longer to correct the issue, working with other clients to allow time within the schedule for this to occur. The price was very reasonable for the number of rooms and amount of wallpaper removal/wall repair. We will definitely use
Centerbrook Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
and the team again!

They were very prompt in delivering the wood, and at first glance it looked very good. I noticed some splits that appeared wet, and the guy quickly explained that while they keep the wood covered the rain the other day had blown under the cover. He assured me that it was just on the surface and they would be dry quickly.
Once I started stacking the wood though, I found despite what he said most of it was wet, and wet all the way through. Definitely not 1-2 years seasoned under cover like they claimed. About half of it was significantly longer than they had claimed, so it won't fit in either of my stoves. They also had a fair amount of pine in the pile, and on top of all of that they only delivered about 2/3 of a cord.

On 12/12/2014, I called to ask why we hadn't heard anything yet and was told they were really busy because of many responses to the Big Deal. On 1/5/2015, I called again and got a similar speech. By this time, we had gotten THREE more emails from Angie's List about the same Big Deal! On 1/7/2015, I called again and finally talked to
Centerbrook Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
. He was very apologetic and we set up a meeting for 1/14/2015. We expected drawings and plans at that meeting but it became clear very quickly that he remembered almost none of what we had discussed on 12/1/2014. Our meeting turned into a review with more promises of a plan from
Centerbrook Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
by the following Monday - 1/19/2015. We were VERY disappointed by his failure to make any notes or take any pictures or measurements the first time that meant having to start all over.

On 1/20/2015, we received 2 emails from

Green: one was 2 computer drawings that bore very little resemblance to our yard or our discussions; the other was a work proposal that was incomplete and very weak on details. We will not be hiring

to do our landscaping and we don't feel like we got what was advertised. Because of this experience, it is highly unlikely that we would ever purchase a Big Deal from Angie's List again.

team was always on time, always professional and always did a wonderful job. I'd still be using him it it weren't for the fact that my son requested the job. When my son leaves the house I'll use him again!
