"The first year it was fine, then somehow they stopped treating the back area but I was still paying for it. Said I had told them to stop treating the back yard" Nobody would tell a lawn service to stop treating part of the lawn but I will pay you fell price. Never offered to make good on their mistake,So I dropped them

is extremely responsive, will tackle any issues, have provided free estimates and advice on trees as well as the lawn. Totally professional" at all times. They have a cleaner set of invoicing, no frustrating onion paper, advice on all bills based on the current status of the lawn and time of year. Easy and effective communication over e-Mail. Prompt pre-delivery confirmation notices. Will work their best at your schedule. Will give them one more year to get a full round and test their applications. Only imperfection was that I had to spot
some red clover which no one had ever been able to
off all year. Was told that bent grass and nimblewill which I have confirmed are items that cannot be killed except by hand pulling and starting over.

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.

were professional and provided aeration service. I also paid an extra $99 to get my lawn seeded as well. I would definitely use

Signed up for a service plan. We'll see what the results are in the future but so far I am very happy dealing with

and with his customer service.
- Lisa B.

This company has gotten to big for themselves. Paid good money for service. Had a problem with weed control and called them back out. The tech spot sprayed and was done in less than 10 minutes. He did not cover all the areas because I watched him. I had better luck purchasing 2 bottles of Ortho weed-be- gone and doing this myself. Will not use again nor recommend to anyone else.
- Sam M.

The company communications was excellent - we exchanged several messages and their responsiveness was excellent. I did upgrade to also overseed (my idea, not solicited by them), which they were happy to do. They came out and did the work as planned. No issues whatsoever, they were very professional throughout.
- Matt O.

They were GREAT! Scheduling was

and they were always on time and very professional. They even noticed that I had the sticky traps in my house to catch spiders and came back out and gave me a stack of them for free. I don't see any bugs in the house, so whatever they are doing must work! I will use them again next year.
- Tia B.

The services performed went very well. He took the time to do it right and not rush and even went the extra step in telling me what I should do next. I'm very happy with his services and will definitely use him again.
- David C.

So far so good. They give an automated call the day before the service which is very good. No one needs to be home on the day of service. They perform the service and leave the invoice at the door which is also good. So far did not have any issues.
- Sandeep G.

When I had called to order their lawn mowing services, I was very, very specific about how I personally cut my lawn, and how I wanted it to continue to be cut. I keep my lawn at about 3-1/2 inches long, so it stays green and it doesn't need to be watered. I also said that I did not want any scalping. I told them that I have fired 3 other lawn service companies for not following my directions. They told me that this would not be an issue, as they only cut the top third of the grass blade off. They also told me that they would come every 10 days. I was ok with spending the $120 per month, but even though my lawn hadn't really grown that much, they come every single stinking week. I guess that's their way of extorting another $40 per month out of me. The last 2 visits now, the guy that they sent out has missed a 3 foot section of my lawn from the property line. The guy has also mowed my lawn down to about 1-1/2 inches in length. My grass looks horrible, brown, and is scalped in many spots. I took 7 pictures yesterday and emailed them with my disgust and attached the pics. Every visit was also supposed to include trimming and edging. Clearly their guy has never used a trimmer before, as the lines are nowhere near straight and he basically scalped those areas as well. He also didn't trim around my front bushes or next to my garage where the grass is about 18 inches high. I was home one day when the guy was here, and it seemed like he couldn't get done fast enough. From start to finish, we're talking 10 minutes. So at roughly $4.00 per minute, there should be some expectation of quality I would guess. I also told them that I will not be paying for the last visit. I have yet to get a response, which makes me even more angry.
