"Very professional. I was able to make initial contact in one call. My service was then scheduled promptly.
was courteous and able to give" me valuable information and tips regarding landscaping maintenance. He arrived with an efficient, hardworking crew and all of the needed equipment. One other thing, our sprinkler system was not turning on and he walked me through where the shut off valve was located, why it was off over the winter and how to turn it back to on. I know that seems
, but I didn't know about that and he was very respectful. I am definitely going to continue to use them! Our lawn is now gorgeous and I am looking forward to working on my landscaping now that I know a few tips. Thanks

"It was good. They came out within a day of my calling for the estimate and were able to begin the work within a few weeks. There were some delays due to weather," but they finished as soon as possible. Everything looks good and I thought the price was fair. The only issue we had was that they communicated with email more than phone and I don't always see the email so they showed up on a Saturday morning to do the sealing on a day that we couldn't have our walkway unavailable. The crew were very nice about it and just said no problem, we'll be back on Monday. Overall good experience and I will use them again for future landscape projects.

Landscaping experts say eco-friendly organic products may take a year or more to transform grass, but the result leads to lower water bills and healthier lawn.

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've had used Nature Scape for several years but was not happy with their service. So I switched to Spring Green. However, my grass has never looked worse. Even with more treatments per year, they don't seem to use very good chemicals. I have never seen so many weeds in my yard. I told them when I first started I wanted them to come on Thursdays or Fridays and to call me the day before they are going to come and then to call me when they arrive. Took a couple visits for them to get this straight. And still they have never called me when they arrived. I had a ton of weeds growing on a set of railroad tie and block steps going down to my back patio and although they were a foot high, they never bothered to spray them until I pointed the weeds out to them. "oh, I didn't see them" was the reply. Are you blind? This was my first season with Spring Green and also my last. The owner

seems like a pretty nice guy but I just don't believe they use good products or spread them vary thin to save money.

has provided lawn service for more on and off over the past 7 years.
They came back to help me out this year when I could no longer mow the
lawn myself. They are a great company to work with. Provide excellent
lawn mowing service and are attentive to the condition of the lawn when
mowing. For example, with all the abundance of rain this summer my
back yard was too wet to use the big mowing equipment so one of the
guys used a small walk behind mower so as not to leave deep tire

in the way to soft earth. In the front yard the fellows used a large
walk behind mower instead of the large riding mower, again being
sensitive to the rain soaked lawn. They are the best mowers around!!!!

and crew arrived the day after my call. They were in uniform, performed as directed, neat and professional. All at a very reasonable price.

Visit was pleasant and professional - but he never gave me an estimate for the work. I called and left three messages asking for the bid, and in my last call asked that he just let me know if he had decided not to bid on the job so I could move forward with another company. Never heard from him again.

I had a list and they knocked it out. Checking with me all along the way. They take direction and get it done
Spread top soil around foundation, spread some gravel, plNted flowers in multiple pots, spread a bunch of mulch, changed outdoor light bulbs, trimmed some trees/bushes. Cut up and hauled off branch and blew off patio and driveway.

My lawn had gotten out of control with the frequent rain lately, and I began contemplating a lawn service due to my busy work schedule and general lack of time and interest in cutting it any longer. I called

after reading the stellar reviews on here from other customers. He quoted me a fair price for weekly lawn service and was able to mow my lawn the very next day, which was a Saturday, and a rainy one at that. I am very impressed with

promised that he would come by and cut my lawn while I was out of town on business. On two separate occasions he promised to cut my lawn and did not show up at all. He never called to tell me he could not make it and I was forced to cut my own lawn during brief trips back to my home. My lawn suffered as a result of his broken promises. If you cannot complete a project you promise to the customer, simply call and explain yourself.

Showed up early--worked solidly through the purchase period. Finished my first wish list in half the time, kept asking what more they could do. No hi-pressure "upsell." Great quality. Would defnitely use them again.
