is always responsive and does quality work. The yard looks great, and he does tree trimming and leaf removal as well. Online account management and payment also offered through FreshBooks. Definitely recommended provider.

"He was very knowledgeable about irrigation systems and the grass. He answered all my questions and concerns. He has been very responsive to questions and problems" over the years. I have moved and still retain his services because I've been a satisfied customer for a number of years now. When it comes time to
sod in my new home he will be doing it for me again.

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 used the Angie's list deal and I was very pleased with the service.
Ankeny Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
stopped by the week before to look at the yard and let me know what he could do for the price of the deal. There were a lot of weeds and vines!! He sent me an invoice detailing what we discussed and we set the date. He came with his guys right at 8am and showed them what to do. The recent storm caused some large tree branches to fall down,

said they could take care of it and he included it in the price we discussed. When I came home the yard looked great! I plan to use this company again!
- Mary Katherine S.

Made multiple calls requesting estimates and work to get my yard plug aerated. Always promised an estimate and a scheduled time to do the work, but never returned a call with this info. After several calls where I spoke to the owner, unanswered phone messages, and no progress, I gave up.
- Greg L.

They did an excellent job of both responding to my request for a bid and performing the lawn services and hanging the shelf. They also did an excellent job of cleaning up after they trimmed. I will definitely be utilizing their services again.

- Glenda H.

Got pulled in by one of the "specials." x number of hours yard work for x. Estate administrator preparing property for sale. No real way to judge if that was money well spent. After that spent the 1600.00 on landscaping to improve

appeal of property and ongoing routine lawn mowing. Job well done and terrific customer service.
- James R.

We purchased it at a special rate of #399.00 for 6 hours of work. When we found out he only could do 1/4 of the work we asked for a price and it was $600.00 for another 6 hours. we paid it and found out he had completed the work in 3 hours then left. he was suppose to return to clean up the weeds he didn't get the first time but went on vacation then by the time he returned new weeds had grown an he said he was not responsible for them. Anyway we paid him then just walked away from this deal.

- Anthony C R.

Initially, I got an Angie's List deal for

to come out and aerate and overseed the lawn.

(owner) and another employee came out as scheduled and did a good job. We were in need of some landscaping in front of our house so I brought up the potential of this job with
Ankeny Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
. He said he'd be happy to help and we scheduled a time for him to come and discuss/consult with us about what we want.
Ankeny Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
listened to what we wanted and also provided helpful suggestions in coming up with our front landscaping. He provided us a detailed quote at a fair price for the work. He and a few employees came on the scheduled day and did an impressive job - we are very pleased with the landscaping they installed in the front of our house!
- Rebecca S.

Excellent job. I am retired and unable to work myself. This was my mother's house and I live in another city so could not be there to supervise job.
Ankeny Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
kept in touch by phone and e-mailed me pictures of what they were going to cut before they did anything. We were able to manage everything remotely to my satisfaction with minimal interruption. Last year they even did a job at same location while I was in Montana(1800 miles away) by e-mailing pictures and everything worked out great. I will always use their services. So convenient my elderly mother never knows they are there. Recommend 100%.
