" does a real good job........our lawn is pretty difficult due to pet damage but they manage to keep it looking relatively good. Especially" in the front where the pets don't roam. We use the yearly plan which includes several applications and an fall aeration and seeding. They also apply grub to hopefully keep the moles at bay. They always call in advance so we can unlock the gate and are always punctual.

-Vern C.

"Upon observing the staff who applied the fertilizer, lime, weed control and brown patch control (1 or 2 of the products that were appropriate at time), it appeared" to me that it was a "hit and miss" application. This type of application was definitely not worth $70.00 and more that might apply to the specific application. Also, there appeared to be a tremendous amount of turnover of employees/staff. There would be a different person to call before each application. I prefer having someone I know and can trust in order to build a relationship with him/her. The office staff can also be very unfriendly at times.

Angie's Answers


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.



Lawn Treatment reviews in Ankeny


They called and were very flexible with scheduling. Came in and did the job exactly when they said they would. I didn't even need to be there and it was finished when I got back home. At first it didn't look like they'd been there until i looked closely at the yard and saw all the plugs. It poured that day and the weekend and I'm ...More pretty sure I'm not imagining better drainage.
Either way, they were quick, efficient, and professional. I will use them again absolutely.
- Josh G.

Very flexible on scheduling appointment; thorough job and came on the day promised; would definitely recommend.
- Larry B.

They did fantastic. They had the cable lines marked the day before. I had never had another service do that before. One person came and was on time. The machine used was different than ones previous services had used. Looked to go deeper and the holes were much closer together. I may not have needed two passes as they explained. My yard is extremely ...More hard with the sod laid over clay and stone. The individual took his time and methodically aerated every area of the lawn while avoiding the cable lines. They crossed the pattern on the second pass. I recommend them and will hire them again.
- Timothy S.

This machine is highly "Overrated" after 2 attempts @ seeding my backyard I still have areas where there is no grass growing & have cancelled the service with " " altogether !!!! will not recommend them to anyone !!! Ps . they are also very expensive !!!! I notified the owner twice via text which he said ...More he never got also e-mailed ,with no reply back !!!
- maynard F.

They were AWESOME!!!! Came on time and it was like magic I looked out the window and saw the of leaves blowing in the air as the workers were cleaning and next thing I knew all of the leaves were in a huge pile on the sidewalk being sucked up by their vacuum truck. I have never seen leaves be cleaned up this thorough and so fast. ...More I will definitely use them in the future...this is what I would call a wonderful customer service experience from day one with contacting with questions regarding their service down to the superb results of the leaf removal from my home. Great Job Lawn Artist...one happy and satisfied customer here.
- Natasha F.

I found on Angie's list and made a call for lawn fertilizing. They were prompt in their assessment and providing an assessment (which was very reasonable given the size of my lawn). They were then very prompt when coming out to provide the service. At that time they recommended lawn aeration and re-seeding (only in areas ...More that needed it). They also came out as soon as I had my sprinkler system marked. Overall I have been very happy with their services thus far and I'm looking forward to a long-term relationship for my lawn care.
- Kerry K.

is very professional and has great customer service. They applied all applications as promised. Instructions, observations, and directions on lawncare were left after each scheduled application. They also have an arborist on staff who came out and consulted with me on my trees at no extra cost.
- E G.

I paid $125 in May for a 5-step fertilizer program that was $25 per application. They applied the first treatment right away. In , I realized I hadn't had any additional treatments so I contacted them. They told me they were planning to do it the next day, but I suspected it was my call that triggered ...More the action. They actually didn't come until the following week. In September, when I again realized that they hadn't completed all of the work, I contacted . He claimed that they'd applied 3 of the 5 treatments but couldn't provide me with the dates. I told him I wanted a refund and he agreed to it after several emails back and forth over a few weeks but as of today, November 12th, I still have not received my refund. He continues to tell me he will send it and even told me to "relax" in his last email to me. I am beyond angry at this guy. It's also worth mentioning that I asked him for a quote to do landscaping work for me over the summer and he never followed up after meeting with me. I would recommend that everyone steer clear of this company as they are not reliable or trustworthy at all.
