"The crew was able to start four days early and finish two days ahead of schedule! Considering how overgrown it was, not an easy task The area around the townhouse" looks double the size. The shrubs and trees look great, and the new plantings are the clean fresh look I wanted. The cleanup left everything perfect, not a twig out of place.

"The worker called in advance and was prompt in his arrival. He did a good job overall but he left early and was smoking on my property; when he saw that I came" out, he asked if it was okay that he smoked despite his company having a policy against this.

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.

My husband and I both had injuries that prevented us from mowing over the summer. Our lawn has a deep ditch and about a 6 foot mound that makes it difficult to mow. They do a very nice job on the lawn and the two difficult areas. We also have a 6 part treatment service. They give plenty of notice so we can make arrangements for our dogs and

show when expected. We like that there is no contract and we can adjust the schedule as we want, 7 days 10, 14, as needed... Although our injuries have healed, we plan to continue using them as they have do such a nice job on the lawn and we plan to use them for lawn renovation and other services.

Seems like I have had similar experience to others. Contacted
Alachua Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
via Angie'slist and he responded right away and set up and appt and came on time and seemed very attentive to my questions and he offered some opinions to the project. But then I never heard back from him. He said it would take a week to work up a proposal and he would be in touch. 10 days later I had not heard back and I sent him a message via Angie's list as I had done before and again left my contact info and several days later still no response, I called and left message and no response and 3-4 days later left another message on Angie'slist and no response. Not sure what's going on but has been almost a month since initial contact and silence on the other end so had to move forward with another contractor

Plowed and salted a clean path so we were able to get in and out without any problem. We have a very long and steep drive. Did a great job in front of the garage doors.

The cost was per cut. He did a good job of mowing and edging. I had no hedges to be cut, but he does that as well. No other services provided. It is just the basics so no treating the lawn, pulling weeds, fixing sprinkler system, etc.

They were professional and very easy to work with. I compared their prices with others and they were very fair. They weren't always the cheapest, but their pricing made sense when I realized all of the services I would be getting. For instance, they will install new plants in my planters at no additional charge. All I need to do is buy the plants and arrange them. MayCreek will install the plants during their next weekly visit. MayCreek not only can install soft scape, they also helped us with a drainage problem that occurred because the city re-paved our street.
