Lake Zurich Lawn Aeration Provider Name Locked
is one of the most unprofessional landscapers that I have ever done business with. The owner while mowing my neighbor s lawn had is dog out and when it pooped in my yard he didn t even pick it up. When I said something to him about it he started screaming in my face and threatening to hit me. DO NOT DO BUSINESS with this company.

LAWN FERTILIZATION & WEED CONTROL:
I would not recommend this company to anyone and following are my experiences with them (also, be sure to review the photos attached to this review). After being dissatisfied with my lawncare provider last year I looked to
Lake Zurich Lawn Aeration Provider Name Locked
to find a new provider for 2011. I found
Lake Zurich Lawn Aeration Provider Name Locked
(TCE) had a lot of positive reviews and decided to give them a call. I spoke with
Lake Zurich Lawn Aeration Provider Name Locked
who seemed very knowledgeable and professional. He visited my home, looked at the lawn and wrote up a quote. The price seemed a little high, but I generally ascribe to the philosophy that you get what you pay for. I called and spoke to
Lake Zurich Lawn Aeration Provider Name Locked
again explaining that we had problems with grubs in the past and that would need to be part of the applications. We agreed that they would get started and the first treatment was applied within a week or so. In the beginning, everything seemed great and the lawn looked the best in the neighborhood.

Then came
Lake Zurich Lawn Aeration Provider Name Locked
in Chicago with record heat - the lawn went brown and dormant (just like the rest of my neighbors). We generally don't spend a lot of time watering our lawn so that was understandable. On
Lake Zurich Lawn Aeration Provider Name Locked
21 TCE came out and applied a treatment when it was 100 degrees. The lawn was still brown at the time, but two days later came record rainfall followed by even more rainfall the following week. I noticed that all of my neighbors lawns started to green up, but my lawn looked terrible (by terrible I mean 70% of it looked dead and it was very patchy - see pictures). I called
Lake Zurich Lawn Aeration Provider Name Locked
and he visited my house to review. He reported that we suffered a lot of "heat and drought related damage." I didn't understand how my lawn was still brown and the other lawns in the neighborhood were green, but he stuck with the "heat and drought related damage" assessment. My neighbors do not water or fertilize their lawns and they seemed fine, but I took his word and decided to wait. I also began watering my lawn several times a week. After all of this occurred I spoke with the guy that mows my lawn. I've only owned the house for two years, but he has been mowing at the house for the past 8-9 years. In all that time he has never seen the lawn look so bad. And the previous owner did not pay for professional lawn treatments.

I waited patiently and diligently watered my lawn. Two weeks later my lawn still looked awful so I called TCE again and spoke to
Lake Zurich Lawn Aeration Provider Name Locked
(president/owner of TCE). I explained the issue and he had another service advisor, Grant, visit my house. Grant's assessment came back that it was not heat/drought damage, but bug damage from Sod Webworms and Billbugs. At that point I wasn't sure what to believe. If you look at the pictures there is a long stretch where the damage pretty much stopped at the property line - those must be some pretty smart bugs. I spoke to
Lake Zurich Lawn Aeration Provider Name Locked
again and he explained that bug damage can happen to anyone and that it is hard to detect unless you dig into the lawn and find the bugs when they're actively feeding. He also explained that the bugs may have chosen my lawn over the neighbors because my lawn was healthier/
Lake Zurich Lawn Aeration Provider Name Locked
(my neighbors don't water or fertilize). During our discussion, he added a lot of reasons for why this could've happened - lack of watering/rainfall, mowing height and frequency, blade sharpness, different varieties of grass, soil composition and compaction, etc. FYI - The person who mows my yard also mows the bordering property and theirs looked fine.
Lake Zurich Lawn Aeration Provider Name Locked
was very professional and is clearly very knowledgeable about lawns. I appreciated the time he spent talking to me, but in my opinion he was just adding a lot of fluff and trying to keep me as a customer while deflecting all of the blame for the damage to my lawn. That said, he did offer discounted pricing on aeration and overseeding. He also suggested a special method of seeding (slice-seeding?) at a discounted price ($375 instead of the normal $750). While I appreciated the discounts I really feel that the damage to my lawn should have been detected by TCE and prevented (or at least minimized). I decided to cancel all services with TCE. Maybe if they had offered to take steps to fix my lawn at no additional cost I would still be a customer.

It's now mid-September and after a month and a half of regular watering my lawn has rejuvenated slightly, but it's nowhere near as full as it was earlier this year, or the past several years for that matter. The only good thing I can say is that there are very few weeds throughout the lawn. If hiring a lawn service to fertilize my lawn 6-8 times a year gives me these results, then I'll fertilize once or twice a year on my own and save $500/year on lawn service.

TREE SERVICE:
Some additional notes on TCE's tree-care division. I called to inquire about pruning several of my trees.
Lake Zurich Lawn Aeration Provider Name Locked
called me and said he would come out and take a look and that TCE does not do tree trimming, but could recommend a service. Aside from the pruning,
Lake Zurich Lawn Aeration Provider Name Locked
wrote up a list of items that he recommended which included treating my spruces for spruce spider mites (of which he said there was an infestation of hundreds if not thousands of spider mites) and a $350 injection to one of my River Birches because it is chlorotic. I called another certified arborist for a second opinion. He looked at the spruces and showed me how to check for spruce spider mites by holding a plain sheet of white paper under the branches and shaking the branches. If there are spider mites they will fall onto the sheet of paper and be visible. He did this to each of the trees and did not find a single spruce spider mite. He also explained that it was not the time of year for spruce spider mite problems, that they are only active in the spring and fall. He recommended checking again in September, but said the trees looked fine to him. Regarding the River Birches he agreed the one was chlorotic, but he offered a non-injection treatment for $85.
Lake Zurich Lawn Aeration Provider Name Locked
did not mention any other options for this treatment even after I made it clear to him that a $350 tree injection was not an option I would consider.

For what it's worth, those are my experiences with
Lake Zurich Lawn Aeration Provider Name Locked
and again, I would not recommend them.

I had intended on attaching photos, but I don't see how to do that. If I can figure that out I will add them to the report later.

It is hard to rate this service that was done by this company as the results will really show up next spring. They did treat the entire lawn, however, and I can certainly appreciate the fact that their aerator did not damage any part of my lawn as past aerations by other companies have. I would definately consider using their services again.
