"Our project was started in fall 2014. Due to weather delays and unforeseen circumstances of the demo taking longer than planned, the job had to be carried over" in the spring and that's when things went downhill.
told us that our job and another were carried over from the fall and that he wouldn't take on any other jobs until ours were finished. After seeing all the dates of the reviews on Angie's List it just confirms what we already knew - that was a lie and the reason why day after day our job didn't get done. Then we were promised it would be done by the second week of April. We were still trying to get ends tied up in June. Here are some examples of the issues we had. We were told they would be here on a Saturday and show up at 6:00 at night and work for an hour and leave, leaving sod rolled up rather than installed. When
asked me if I watered the sod placed down I sent him a picture of the lack of work done to which he responded that he thought more was done. Not very good management. We had to ask twice to have bare spots of mulched beds redone. This was after I walked the perimeter of the property with an employee and he agreed with me that it needed to be done. This seemed like such a
thing, especially when we paid over $10,000 for all of this work! At one point (after the promised date of mid April had passed) I asked
to finish up the front because a realtor was coming to take pictures of our house. Again, he said it would be done by that date, and again it wasn't and he didn't me to say he wasn't coming or apologize. The realtor came and was able to take pictures of the entire house, except the front, of course. The service just continued to fall short time after time. I have the texts to prove all of this happened, as well as direct emails to
with our requests to get things done and our disappointment with his service. None of what's written in this review should come as a surprise to him.
did part of the work on our project - new porch columns and new composite decking over the existing porch. He did great work and was there when he said he would be. I would recommend
. I would not recommend using
. I'm sure there are lots of other companies who can install a paver walkway and stairs and landscape some beds while providing much better service and communication.

"Contacted this lawn service through their website. I explained exactly what I was interested in. I received an email back that evening that
" would like to come look at the house and I gave him some times I would be available. I received another email the next night telling me he got very busy (in the last 24 hours?) and that I should contact other companies. My thoughts are he drove past our house and decided the job wasn't worth his time even though his website clearly states he does flower beds, weeding and landscaping which is what I wanted. I will never contact them again and I do have some friends who use this company and will let them know how unprofessional he was.

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.

He does a great job every time. I do the pruning, and he reminds me if I'm letting the big bushes grow to far over the sidewalk. Only one time did he need to move the date of lawn maintenance, and that was due to a medical condition. He's really easy to work with, and great at explaining all that he provides, and exactly what you are paying for.

I left a message for him around 1:15pm, he called me back at 5:25pm and after giving him the run-down of what I needed (which was incorrect by the way, later on this review you will see the correction) he told me that they would not be a good fit for us. My wife called him back to confirm that a good majority of the things I had requested we have covered by another person and all we would need is lawn-care, flower bed clean up etc. Nothing out of this world or out of his advertised services. He then looked at the map and told her that he services one side of hwy 205 but not the other! "There has to be a cut-off somewhere" So..... he does not cover the
Washington Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
Area or he didn't care to do work for us. Either way, if he is not taking clients because he's got too much business he should say so! What ever happened to shooting from the hip?

TJ,

Washington Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
and the entire team did a phenomenal job with our project. We have new construction and they provided a multiple page detailed estimate in a timely fashion, going above and beyond to provide all of the necessary information for
Washington Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
approval (including a color diagram showing the pattern of water coming from the sprinklers).
They worked for three weeks on the above projects (the length of time due to weather not cooperating), including weekends when necessary, in order to complete the job and leave us fully satisfied. When there were any hiccups their entire staff was ready, willing and able to find a solution. This includes, as recently as today, the president (

) doing a final walk through and moving sprinkler heads to make sure that they were not in the way of the fence we are having installed by a separate company, and installing one or two extra items in order to completely satisfy us.
This is a small business that is operating on a large scale, working very hard but making it look nearly effortless and I applaud them. They have my highest recommendation.

My lawn mover died and my home was up for sale. I contacted

hoping it wasn't to late in the year and within no time at all he is mowing my lawn. Fast getting back to you and the price was great per week. Job is looking good.

Because of the constant rain he has not yet finished getting the new grass done. He has kept the yard looking neat and well tended while trying to get the new grass planted. I am very happy with him as he seems to be able to keep the grass mowed in between the rain showers. Some of the new seed washed away but some is growing so it does look better. He has not finished to his satisfaction.
We now have grass on all the areas that were bare. I am very, very happy with this service.

I have expressed our dissatisfaction to this provider, and he was unwilling to address our concerns. Instead, he offered explanation after explanation, but no remedy. We have two very significant complaints that this provider cannot explain away. First, we paid a flat fee for a certain number of hours of work, which we purchased directly from Angie's List. The provider exceeded the number of hours and scope of work without first consulting with us or our daughter (who was home at the time and available throughout the time the work was done). Now the provider expects us to pay for that overage. That is unacceptable in every way. His rationale is that he saw that the job was larger than he originally thought, and he wanted to do a good job for us. If that was the case, he should have contacted us as soon as he realized more work was needed. He at no time indicated that he anticipated or was exceeding the hours/price agreed upon and paid for. Secondly, this provider cut down the only truly beautiful tree in the back yard without first consulting with us or with our daughter, saying that in his judgement removing it would "open up" the backyard in the way he wanted to achieve. He did, however, consult with our daughter about two other trees, and she instructed him NOT to cut down those trees. The fact that he checked about those trees indicates to me that he does in fact know that he should check with the customer before removing such a significant asset. I am mystified as to why he chose not to consult with her about the tree he removed. Short of replacing the tree he cut down with a similarly sized tree there is no way he can make this right with us. We were generous in our ratings. Price and how he performed in all other aspects are really not applicable, given his unacceptable performance in these two areas. Others who are thinking about contracting with
Washington Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
need to consider whether or not they want to do business with someone with these business practices and lack of communication skills.
