responded to my call promptly. I met with Mr.
at the house so he could provide me with an estimate. I wanted" to take it all back to the fences with greenery around the border, use of some existing ground cover and a paved walkway. A couple days later he emailed me his first estimate which included a lot of pine straw. While I wanted to keep costs down, I also didn't want a yard full of straw. I asked him to rework it by making the paved area larger. After I got the revised estimate and agreed on the work he started a couple weeks later. The project took about two weeks. I will say that his workers were professional and courteous. One of his sons was the crew manager. Some days they worked 8 hours but some days they were there 4 hours. The entire project took about two weeks. So, the yard went from a total embarrassment to spectacular. I will caution anyone who uses this or any other service to discuss specific plants. I had a total of about 10 different types of plants. I thought that was too much variety for my taste. It took me a couple weeks of critiquing the work to realize I liked some plants much better than others. So, I called Mr.
and asked him what we could. I also spoke to him about doing another smaller job in the front yard so he combined the estimates. The plants were warrantied for 90 days so when one of the ferns died in the first week, they replaced it the day after I called about it. Job #2 was replacing 6 plants in the back with the ones that I liked better and doing a smaller job in the front yard. The front job was transplanting two
that were competing for space, enlarging the planting area with new border and removing a large
all up in everything. That job took only one half day. Job #1: 10,500 Job #2: 600 Overall, very pleased with the work and how it looks. Nothing but compliments from everyone one because the yard is so inviting and a great place to entertain.

is very professional, and was absolutely hands on all aspects, from measuring, planning, drawing, picking out plants that would thrive in the area.

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 mind is without a doubt the best in the business. I say this from experience
Ankeny Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
now at multiple properties recently. Years ago I used another
company at one of my properties and was so disappointed with the whole process
that I decided artificial grass was just not the way to go until the industry
advanced a bit. I reconsidered recently after a recommendation to try
Ankeny Lawn Services Provider Name Locked

from a source I really trust. From the start of project to completion and onto
the excellent after service, I really have been very impressed with
Ankeny Lawn Services Provider Name Locked

overall. I own and manage several high end properties in California so my
vendor standard of work critique is high. I worked with
Ankeny Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
each time and
he was simply the most professional and most honest turf specialist I dealt
with out of several companies that I allowed to bid on all the work that I
recently had done. Because of the size of one property in particular that he
did for me, which was about 80,000 square feet of grass replacement, I of
course got several bids from several companies to compare.

by far the best product and at a very, very fair price comparably. This company
has now done work for me at my properties in
Ankeny Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
Hills, Malibu and Westlake
Village. I’ll be using them at several other investment properties I own in the
Southbay also because I am so impressed. I would not hesitate recommending them
to my family and closest friends. Some things I found while going through the lengthy
process of selecting artificial turf and in particular

were that

simply has, in my opinion, the best looking finished product, they
have the best pricing, the best management and crew working knowledge, and the
after care availability is excellent (we have had no problems, but we host
events and
Ankeny Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
has offered to help as needed at any time during the event
setups). I highly recommend

and the entire

company now that
I have gone through several installments at my properties with them.

20 mowings, plus initial clean up. Both went very well. Still have 1 hour of yard cleaning for this fall. Plan on purchasing mowing service for balance of year.
Only real complaint is variable times, as we have three dogs. Sometimes it was done before I was home from work, other times not until about 7PM. I understand weather and other issues can affect this somewhat, but not having a constant time was a bit of an inconvenience.
Also the gate to the back yard was left open once, and one of our dogs got out. He came back on his own before I even knew he was out, but we do live fairly close to 146th, so it could have had a very unhappy consequence.

nailed it. I recently purchased a new home that had a yard which needed TLC.

AMAZING is how i would sum up the service from
Ankeny Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
Ankeny Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
; I had contacted
Ankeny Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
on August 11th because I had slacked off and not mowed my back yard in about 3 weeks and I was about to leave to go on vacation. I sent him some pictures of my lawn and
Ankeny Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
and his crew came out that day to examine the job and give me a quote. I had informed him that I just recently moved into my house and I wanted the front/back mowed with some edging.
Not only did
Ankeny Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
and his team show up the next day, not only did they mow my front and back lawn + edging...but
Ankeny Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
took it upon himself to de-weed my driveway (it was in bad shape, short-sale property and they let it go at the end) and remove a tree growing out of a bush in my backyard. I never asked for him to do this, but he did it and kept the price the same. I was blown away...who does that kind of stuff anymore? When I asked him about it, he said I had just moved in and he wanted to do something nice.
I can't give
Ankeny Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
and his crew at
Ankeny Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
enough credit, they did an amazing job on my property and did way more than I even asked them too. Although I do mow my own lawn (most of the time), I will be using
Ankeny Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
for any landscaping or yard work that I need done in the future, they earned my business for as long as I am in the area!
- Alex T.

I was so impressed with the crews work ethic - hard workers working to please. They listened to how I wanted it done. Saved me several weeks for work. Very happy with the work they did. They will be the ones I call when I need further work done.
- Sondra J.

My property was a mess. The beds, bushes, trees and hedges were all sadly neglected and overgrown with grasses and vines. The lawn had been mowed regularly but the service that did the mowing was mostly ‘mow and blow’ … they didn’t offer weeding or trimming or landscape maintenance and I, sadly, am not very good at doing the work myself. The folks doing the mowing were planning to close their business so I was looking for a new service provider.
I did a
Ankeny Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
on Angie’s List and found
Ankeny Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
’s Landscaping and Lawn Care. I checked out their website and was impressed so I contacted them by email.
Ankeny Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
responded and we set a time for her to stop by and access the situation.
Ankeny Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
showed up exactly when she said she would, we walked around the property and we agreed on what needed to be done. A day later I received the estimate and gave her the go ahead.
Ankeny Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
and his crew of three arrived on the day specified and went to work…it took the four of them a full day (8 hours plus) to finish the job. They did a fantastic job, cleaning out all of the beds, fighting with and removing the vines that had overtaken the hedges, trimming the hedges and bushes and replanting some of the bushes to better locations, checking and repairing the sprinkler system, spreading many yards of mulch, hauling all of the ‘trimmings’ away and leaving my yard looking like a showplace.
Now, every time I drive into the driveway, there’s a big smile on my face as I see how nice my yard looks. Sometimes I just go out and walk around admiring a yard I was a little ashamed of a few weeks ago.
I have contracted with
Ankeny Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
’s Landscaping and Lawn Care for weekly yard maintenance so I know that my smile will be there long into the future. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who wants to be ‘yard-proud’.

The service was fantastic. The owner,
Ankeny Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
, was very responsive from the moment I purchased the Angie's List deal. Communication was great his team showed up on time (even a little early- but they called so it was fine.) They worked quickly and efficiently and it looks like I have a brand new house. I definitely plan on using them again for routine upkeep. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a lawn service. Everyone was extremely pleasant and professional.
