"Fantastic job! Bill responded quickly when we needed lawn service. He is very professional, knowledgeable and personable. Offered great tips for maintenance and" even mower care! Lots of attention to detail. Highly recommended!

"This job went very well, despite some uncooperative February weather.
' crew were always on time and worked very hard throughout the" day. They respected our property by keeping the work site as clean and orderly as they could with rain and snow. They were careful to locate and avoid underground electric, water and septic tank lines that complicated the work.
, the "foreman" was meticulous about the quality and appearance of the work he and his helpers did, even to the extent of taking out and fixing the rare paver what wasn't cut just right or that wasn't sufficiently level with ones adjacent to it. I shoveled snow off the pavers and steps today, and there were very few times when the shovel caught on a slightly high spot.
kept me informed as to any cost increases so there were no surprises for the final invoice. I highly recommend his work and his crew.

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.

Mr.
Bowdoinham Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
arrived promptly at the appointed hour and worked for more than the 4 hours agreed upon, as he said that he would
not include the time he took to go and empty his pickup of the chips. He did a nice job overall, although there are still some additional chips we will have to rake out before we do new planting. He cleaned up the site and the
Bowdoinham Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
area around his truck afterwards. He was pleasant to deal with, and we would consider using his services again in the future.

Over the phone I was quoted $120, but once
Bowdoinham Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
saw the amount of work he told me $175. He made it clear that they mainly do commercial projects, but he could work on my job if I was interested. He seemed very knowledgeable and was able to identify the trees and plants I had instantly. I chose someone else who was a little less expensive and seemed to concentrate more on residential gardening even though I believe

could have done a perfectly fine job.

was early to our appointment. He had a good attitude, was knowledgeable and understood what I wanted to do. He seemed fairly busy--which is probably a good thing. He would have been my second choice.

Bowdoinham Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
was contacted after we had tried three lawn services the past two years. He responded quickly and an appointment was set up for him to do a walk through of our yard. He is very knowledgable about turf, plants, and developed a plan for our yard which was in terrible shape.
First,
Bowdoinham Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
is always responsive to phone calls, and if necessary will come to assess a question about the yard.
Secondly, he has a crew that comes to our house every week and they are same crew.
Bowdoinham Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
and Nick do the mowing, edging, blowing, and if there is anything they notice, they will take the time to do something 'extra'. ( trimming, weeding, skimming the pool.) As
Bowdoinham Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
and Nick come every week they notice things that other yard services who send different crews would not.
They ask us if there is any thing we want done in addition to the normal work. Additionally, we can always go out and talk to them if we notice something we want done.
Bowdoinham Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
and his crew are very respectful, quick to respond to phone calls or emails, and are exceptional!
Finally there fee for more work is less than the previous three yard services.
Bowdoinham Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
charges $170.00 per month. The previous three yard services charged $250.00 and were truly "mow and blow" services.
Bowdoinham Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
works with Garland Lawn Control for spraying fertilizer, pest control, pH, etc. That fee is $45.00 per month. I recommend

and their crew were awesome. Cleaned up and hauled off all the fallen leaves and vines growing on our fences. Then mowed and edged everything. When I came home from work the area was spotless. Thanks!

Two younger gents showed up to my new property to perform an 8 hour yard clean up and gutter clean out. The weather was 32 degrees and raining, I have 1 acre of tree lined and fully landscaped property. I could not believe what they did in 8 hours, in probably the worst weather to be outside in. My gutters were spotless and shockingly there were no leaves at all in the yard. I did however pay an additional 35.00 for removal as the normal free dumps for leaves are closed in the winter. Overall great work, will have them back in spring to get my landscaping back in order for the summer.

After signing for the service the provider never showed up. When contacted by phone, his excuse was he was swamped by all the response the Angies listing had created and he was way behind in service calls. When he finally did show up 4 weeks after the phone call he made an application and was gone. Second application occurred about four weeks later. Towards the end of the season we received notice that the company had sold out to another company and they would be providing the service. The fianl service was handled by the second company.

This whole experience begs the question about the advertised claims of Angies List. It appears any new start-up compay in this case a guy with a truck and a chemical tank can just pay his money to Angies List and get a positive recommendation even though he hasnt been in business long and within months is out of business. The fact the business address was a
Bowdoinham Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
box should have been a clue to Angies List this wasn't a long term business. It appears Angies List is more about the quick turn-around on the listings and less about the actual quality of service providers.
