" Last year I had to find a new company to take care of our lawn needs after my long time company owner retired.I went through one company and they just were not" showing up.I looked here and found and contacted
whom came out that evening to give me an estimate.We walked the lawn,we talked about a lot of things,I did tell about my military career along with things that now keep me from being able to do this work anymore,
was very nice as he thanked me for my service and offered to take care of our lawn at a discounted price.This meant a lot to me,that I could tell he meant what he said.We had a good relationship last year and for most of this year.Our lawn has never been cut with anything other than a self propelled regular walk behind mower in the 15 years we have lived here and that is what
used until his last few cuttings and that is when my wife and I started noticing a difference.The grass,which is Bermuda,was being cut much higher with a lot of cuttings being left behind.Not to mention that after two days the grass looked like it had not been cut.He started using a different type of mower and the results were not good even though he insisted he has never had any complaints about it from other customers.When I went to talk to him about it he got very defensive and mad.I did not mean for him to get upset I only brought up a concern.He told me for the price he could not use the smaller walk behind mower and what the new price would have to be.I told him I understood and would have to talk to my wife about it.This got him madder and said do not worry that he would not charge for this cut which was only part of the front yard and one pass in the back.I did tell him I would go ahead and pay him and he said"to do what ever" I wanted.He then blew off the driveway and left.He did not trim the front or finish cutting the back.I got highly upset that he didn't finished the front or the back and decided not to pay for this incomplete cut and deducted it from my bill.He called and we had a nasty conversation. In order to end the conversation I agreed to pay for the unfinished job.We sent the payment today but have been receiving numerous phone calls threatening to send it to a collections agency.Bottom line he did not finish the yard but we still payed him.I was always nice and patient with him.I do thank them for the deal they gave us but I learned in my 58 years to never trust a deal.You almost always get what you pay for.This is the first time I have ever written a negative review on anything or anyone.

"It went great. He and his brother worked long hours in the heat and finished within 4 days. They even fixed my sprinkler system and got it all ready for me. They" were very professional and very nice. They did not leave the job until it was complete and working properly. The price was less than he quoted me. I have had lots of compliments and my yard never looked nicer. If your looking for a great landscaper they are the one to hire. ***** five star

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.

I contacted this company to do seeding/feeding, aeration and clean up of flower beds.
Dealing with this company was at first pleasant,
Alachua Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
, who give the quote, was knowledgable and honest. But it quickly turned into a NIGHTMARE.
Alachua Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
, the scheduler, never returned messages or emails to schedule the job. I had to repeatedly call until finally I got her on the phone. It took weeks to finally get someone on the phone. That should have been my first indication not to use your company and go with the someone more professional.
When I finally got a hold of
Alachua Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
, she said that I would be the first one of the day and that the crew would arrive between 7:00 and 8:30. When they hadn't showed by 10:30, I had to cancel because I couldn't wait all day for them.
The second attempt was made by, I believe,

. He was very nice and showed up when it was raining. The men he had with him were also good and started picking up fallen branches as
Alachua Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
and I talked. But we concluded that it was too wet and I would have to reschedule.
The crew that finally came out on a Saturday were NOT good. No one on the team spoke english and didn't understand what needed to be done. They didn't pick up the debris in the yard. The left without doing the aeration in the backyard, as described in the contract and after I talked with one of them about it. He nodded his head and implied he understood, clearly he did NOT.
I had to clean away dead leaves in the flower beds while they were here, since they were clearly not "cleaning the leaves." I had to schedule yet another appointment with
Alachua Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
to make sure they came back to do the work they didn't do the first time, the backyard aeration and cleaned up the flower beds. They did the aeration, but still did not clean out there flower beds. The quote states, "Spring Cleanup Blow beds and remove leaves sticks and winter debris all beds front and rear." There were still large branches and sticks in the yard and leaves around the plants in the flower beds. They blew the leaves to the back of the yard and didn't pick them up.
I sent a check for the amount minus the leave/debris clean up. I sent numerous emails and calls explaining that I was not happy. I received emails back saying that they returned several times because of my choice and not their lack of follow through.
I paid the final amount under protest because they sent it collections.

Alachua Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
was great to work with and he and his team did everything I asked. I had a very short turn around and a few special requests.
Alachua Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
and his guys did exactly what I asked in the small amount of time I gave them. He handled my special requests without any problem which I'm extremely grateful for. They were professional, showed up on time, and the lawn looked amazing after they finished. In addition, the price was very reasonable for the amount of work they did. Thank you so much for your great work!

Bad service, never showed after the second mowing and got paid for the whole season. Bad and inaccurate billing and not professional to return phone calls. Mail box is mostly full, they filter they calls and hang up on calls. Very badly managed company.

I called

at noon today to ask about his company delivering and spreading pine needles for us, having no idea that he could do the job today. He advised that his crew could be at my home within an hour, and they were. The quality of the pine needles is first rate, and they did an excellent job of spreading them! I will definitely call

Meeting Anil and having him install our new artificial grass was an experience we will not easily forget . I have to say I am not easily impressed , but in this case I was impressed to no end . The job went extremely well . They showed up when they said they would and they turned what was an eye sore of a front yard into a place of beauty . I was so pleased with the way he did business with us , in an honest and friendly way , I had to write a little something to share with any one that is looking for this kind of work done by an honest person . I also have to ad that his price was the most reasonable out of all the other quotes . Nothing but praise and appreciation and would recommend him to anyone serious about finding the right people for the job.

Overall the work was performed well and post-job cleanup was good. Only lacking area was provider's capability to trim/thin out higher branches.
