"In 2013, we had this company do a landscaping plan, and then a bid for the work. They bid things in such a way that we could pick and choose what we wanted done, which was pretty awesome." They also knew that we weren't going to have the work done until the next summer, and were good with that as well. We have a 1/2 acre of property, 1/4 acre of which was originally blackberry bushes. We had a low spot that was a bit boggy, and it was sloped in such a way that wasn't very usable. We wanted a park-like setting with grass and a plantings. This resulted in a plan of 10k sq ft of grass with plantings around the edgings, and a water garden/rock drainage feature for the boggy area. The initial work was done in about a week. Big machines were brought in, as well as several dump trucks worth of top soil and compost, which were all spread to make a cohesive back yard. Then the edging for the grass was put in, and the yard hydroseeded and the rock drainage feature put in. There were a couple of issues, and they sent guys out twice to get them fixed. Really responsive and willing to work to get it done so that we'd be as happy as could be. The owner was really hands on, which was great. Great company to work with and we'd happily use them again.

"We had a somewhat complex project for the landscaping of our property. Nick took us to a property where he was landscaping a back yard. We were impressed with his work and decided" to hire him. He also took us out to a nursery to pick out the trees and bushes. Nick and his crew were very professional, on time and hard working. Nick is an excellent landscape contractor with significant experience in landscape design and installation, and a flair for turning artistic expression into reality. He is very knowledgeable in the types and species of plants, trees and bushes, which look best and which will best survive in the summer heart and winter frosts. He and his crew did an excellent job of installation of the landscaping, which involved placement of rock and boulders, a beautiful dry creek bed in the front yard, irrigation valve, back-flow preventer, irrigation water lines, and the low voltage lighting fixture placement. He used the best materials, which will require less maintenance and will last longer. He installed 3 spaghetti irrigation tubes for each of the large trees (2 deep and one surface) and 2 spaghetti tubes for the smaller trees and some bushes. System testing of the automatic irrigation and lighting systems were successfully performed. A couple of minor adjustments were made to the design as the work progressed to improve the looks and functionality of the landscaping, including additional lighting. My wife and I highly recommend Scape Tech for the design and installation of landscaping.

"The job was done at a time I was at work, which was fine by me. They left a nice sign alerting us to keep off the grass, but it didn't say for how many days. There was a lot of" fertilizer noted on lawn and the holes for aeration as well, but not many seeds I could see. Im not sure if the seeding will be done at a later date... I would use them again because they covered every available spot on my lawn with fertilizer.

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.

Bill has been taking care of my lawn for several years and he does an excellent job in all areas. He has gone out of his way on several occasions to resolve issues and provides suggestions on how to improve my lawn.

From the first email to this organization requesting a quote on the work I wanted done to the last discussion after the work was done, the staff of

Landscaping are the BEST. Doing our communication through email worked well. Their response to each email I sent was prompt and very informative. Every question I had was answered. Today they arrived to do the work on time and got the job done beautifully. They even went over the brick wall on the back patio so nothing would come through my home to mess it up. My patios look beautiful and around my townhome is mulched just perfectly. I'm so happy with the work.. Thanks so much to

I paid $1,000 to reseed and top soil my lawn, plant some bushes and flowers, and
Murphy Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
down some pavers 6 months ago. And I also hired the company to maintain the yard every other week. I now have big patches of dirt in my lawn, weeds galore, and half the plants they planted are dead despite the watering schedule he directed.
Over the last few months I have left multiple messages on the office number and owners cell number. I have texted him several
times. I have sent a note included in my monthly payment. I have even tried calling without displaying my telephone number thinking he might answer if he did not know who was calling. At first, I was actually trying to reach him thinking if all else failed he could just give me the name of the grass seed he used, I would go and buy it and reseed it myself on all the big areas that have no grass. And the weeds continue to spread.
But I am way over that now. The lack of response to my many attempts to reach him is unprofessional and tells me that he is not concerned about helping or keeping his current clients. It seems once I paid him the initial fee, he wrote me off. His workers
that mow the grass are very nice, but they cannot provide any help with my problems unless I speak with the owner, and he NEVER returns calls.
So I have ended his employment via a certified letter and will be seeking a new gardner for weekly maintenance.

It took a couple of calls to get in touch with them; had to leave messages and have them call me. They did call and let me know when they were planning on coming. Then they called and left a message when the date was finalized, which I appreciated. Their price was excellent, but it didn't seem like they used a lot of grass seed. I made sure to water the seed to give it the best

of growth, but I noticed that the areas where I had added extra grass seed had a lot more grass coming in; some of the areas that were bare didn't seem to have a lot of seed on them and so not much grass has sprouted in those areas where I didn't add seed. But it WAS a really good price!

is definitely a gardening angel. I have lived in my house for 15 years and have gardens in both my front and back yards. Everything had gotten out of hand and needed a skilled gardener to get it into shape.

moved many of the perennials to appropriate beds and added sun-loving perennials to the now sunny beds. She pruned badly overgrown shrubs and even cut down small trees that had taken root on their own. It was a huge amount of work. She worked without breaks and got everything done and cleaned up in an amazingly short time. Even on the hottest day of the year - yes, that was what it was called on the evening news - she worked nonstop.

My yard was a wreck! Then I had it dug up for a new leach field. Double mess! I knew I wanted a big, beautiful lawn and irrigation system put in but was clueless where to turn. I went to Angie's List and found
Murphy Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
's name. He came by in April and I told him what I was looking to do. I had a lot of questions and he answered them all. There was still snow on the ground and he said he would start the install in early May when the weather turned a little warmer and less rainy. He oversaw everything from delivery of the organic soil and plumbing/irrigation install. He even let me drive his Bobcat! His estimate was his price, and it was very fair. Being an anxious type, I called and emailed him many times after the work was done. Every time the grass looked to be growing too slow, too fast, when I saw an ant hill, or a mole hole or a week or had problems programming the watering unit, I called or e-mailed.

ALWAYS responded promptly and even came by a few times to check on the job's progress in person. Never any extra charge. He wanted to ensure the job was done right. A few times he sent one of his workers over to fertilize or over-seed. They were always courteous as well. The jobs were always performed on time. It has been almost 6 months and my lawn is beautiful. I have plans to have
