"I've been using
for several years now. I do pay annually and get a discount for doing so but it is about $30/month. I used to do my" own fertilizing but I just wasn't getting the results no matter what I tried and now my lawn looks significantly better . A couple of times I've called them in between scheduled visits and they came out again at no charge. Yes, I recommend them.

"
is very efficient, prompt and professional to work with. When they did the major landscaping project on my yard, they were here the days" and times they promised they would be. All work and clean-up was done in a timely manner, all employees were very professional and nice as they completed the job. I would highly recommend

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.

We were not pleased with the results and canceled the service. Once we canceled service, they continued to call regularly during the dinner hour and later, to sale their service to us again. When we asked that they stop calling, they responded that by law they could call us for three years and that they were not going to stop calling. We ended reporting them to the Better Business Bureau to get them to stop calling. Very disappointing.

Lawn treatment did very little for my yard they would just tell me that I need to water and that I had clay soil that's hard to grow grass on. I put up with their treatments for 4 years but every year it would get worse, so that's the end of

and his crew arrived as agreed and started the back-breaking work: slope behind house with 30 degree incline and 30+ degree slope between fence and sidewalk. Total area approximately 3500 square feet. The first day involved three men working several hours and second day was a crew of four men arriving right on time and putting in 4+ hours. The removal of the massive amount of 6" deep ice plant, ivy, etc. took approximately 20+ man hours.

The first year was fine, they were very good about scheduling on days when I was home and they call the day before to remind you they will be there. We pre-paid and got a discount. Our yearly fee was about $400 for six treatments. (That is to the best of my recollection). Our lawn looked okay in 2013 but was not the best looking lawn on the block by any means.
This last year (2014), we watered extra and were constantly raking pine needles off our back lawn as recommended by our technician. Our front looked great and finally was the nicest on the block. Our back lawn barely came back from the winter though and did not recover fully and green up even by the end of the summer despite the
Zephyr Cove Lawn Aeration Provider Name Locked
's treatments.
Then at the end of summer, directly in the center of our front lawn we had a large area die. Large chunks of lawn were being pulled away easily by the lawnmower and even just by walking on the lawn. When we investigated we could easily see white worms/grubs of some kind. The lawn guy had just treated our yard and when I checked the invoice it did not contain an insecticide so we called and asked
Zephyr Cove Lawn Aeration Provider Name Locked
to send the guy back out. They did this and he treated the lawn again for free. My husband had also treated the lawn with some insecticide we had in the shed because he felt it was a severe infestation and could not delay treatment until
Zephyr Cove Lawn Aeration Provider Name Locked
returned. So the lawn was treated twice.
Over the fall and winter the front lawn has slowly improved but still does not look great and the compromised areas are obvious. The back lawn is affectionately called our "mud pit" as the lawn is barely hanging on after a difficult last summer. We still struggle to keep the pine needles off it and we do have a dog that is on it, but I have been very unhappy with

This year (2015) is the reason why I have only just today canceled my service.

rolled over my service so when they were coming I just assumed it was still from the services I had already prepaid. I am not a fan of rolling over services without a verbal okay from a customer. Seems like a sneaky trick to me. Also, they applied

if I would agree to remain a customer, They also offered to give me the discounted price I have had in previous years if I stayed. Please look at the photos of my lawn to know why I declined both offers. I cannot continue to have mediocre results for $400/year. (I only paid $110 for this year because I canceled early).

I have been using them for three years. For the First two years they lived up to the A rating. In the last year, They came out and did the first application late. If you do the treatment late it does not work. They did the second treatment in

. We had a discussion about my dog to make sure he was out of the yard so they were supposed to call. They never put on third application.

We really like their work. They will come out if you have questions or if you see weeds. They will call ahead and leave a notice of what they did. They will give suggestions on your yard. We have used them for more than 10 years.
