"To prepare for lawn aeration I exchanged email and phone call communication indicating that we would have utilities marked professionally and that we had an invisible" fence in the front and back yard that I would
personally. I notified provider when this was completed. Provider came to residence on a Monday(9/28) morning at 8:00, without making prior arrangement, and called from his cell phone and said he was at my residence and confused by the invisible fence markings and needed clarification. I heard the call and thought I could easily finish dressing and walk outside and answer his questions. In that minute that I finished dressing he left so I immediately called the number provider had called from but it directly went to voicemail and I did not receive a call back. That same week, on Friday(10/2), provider called to say he would be there Saturday morning at 9:00, unless it rained too much, and I agreed to be available and would walk around the yard with him and clarify the location of the invisible fence. I made provider aware that I needed to leave by 9:30. On Saturday morning I stayed at my residence until 9:45 but received no communication from provider. During our telephone conversation he explained that a little rain was best but too much rain and he would not aerate and said I could call and cancel if it rained too much. I indicated I would not be calling to cancel and would trust his judgment. It rained some during the night but based upon his description thought he would still come so I waited even longer than I had indicated. Provider may have stopped by on Tuesday(10/6) but I was out of town. My wife was home but works full-time and was on a business call that prevented her from getting to the door in time. Again, no prior communication. I had walked the yard with my wife and she had made notes so if prior communication had been made it would have been possible for the service to be performed. On Saturday, October 10th, without prior communication, provider aerated lawn and probably broke invisible fence in several places in front and back yard. If provider was confused before he should have been very confused this time. I had mowed the lawn several times to keep the lawn prepared to be aerated since provider had indicated we needed to stay off lawn for 10 days after aeration. I was intending to mow on Sunday and remark fence or cancel service since it was taking so long. If provider had contacted me and I had known the exact date I would have been prepared for Saturday. I am not currently working so with proper communication this should have been the easiest job to work into their schedule that provider had. Contacted provider by phone and he indicated to him that he had destroyed my invisible fence. I expected him to say, oops, someone else had performed the service and he forgot to tell them about the invisible fence. Instead he denied fault as he had not aerated anything that was not marked. It was as if we had never been to my residence before and saw the invisible fence markings and we had any previous email or telephone correspondence regarding the invisible fence. I then contacted Angie's List and posted this review,

-Dwight K.

"Extremely well.
came out to give us our initial quote for one time maintenance and biweekly service. After a few days of getting additional" quotes,
's quote was the best received for the work we needed accomplished.
and his crew showed up the very same day I called and requested service. His crew has been out once more before writing this review, and again they were very professional. The only reason I gave them a "B" on the Responsiveness is because of their invoice department. The initial invoice had two biweekly cuts when in fact there was only one. After bringing it to their attention, they agree the invoice was wrong, but it has been a week and I still haven't received the new invoice. I'm sure this will be resolved, and I am very pleased with the service they provide and would recommend them.

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.

I called
Johnson City Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
asking to do the aeration of our small lawn, after
Johnson City Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
Lawn Services were not able to provide this
service, as they do not use ramps to get an aerator over small stone steps. Fortunately, that was not a problem for this provider.
Johnson City Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
was responsive and came the following day after my call. He did the aeration, overseeding, and also said he added a fertilizer. I expected a lower price, as my lawn is tiny (less than 800 sq. feet), he spent 20-30 min doing the job and charged $300 (I asked to apply 5% Angie’s list coupon). The Angie’s list deal for this provider is $300 for the aeration and overseeding for up to a fourth acre, which is at least 10 times larger than my lawn. Other than the price, I am pleased with the service.
- Vyacheslav G.

I am extremely pleased with

. My yard looks fantastic. And the price they charge is very reasonable. I am still using their services and will continue to do so.
The owner

II would definitely recommend

to anyone. Very nice and professional work at good prices.

This was terrible from the get go. I purchased the big deal from Angie's List, and the communication with the office was terrible. Their receptionist/customer service person didn't seem to know anything, quoted me incorrect information several times and was quite pushy that I must schedule a date because they're so busy.
Eventually, I got a person that was supposed to know what was going on to talk to me. Mind you, they were not willing to come to my yard to look at what I wanted. I explained that my order of priorities was to get weeds done, then branches and then mulch. We discussed cost of mulch and hours required to install at length and agreed on a cost for labor beyond the 12 hours purchased in the big deal, as her expectation is that the work would require more than 12 hours. We even agreed what would happen if they could not finish in one day and needed to come back--how much per hour the second day of work would be, etc.
They notified me on Sunday before my Monday appointment that they couldn't make it and asked if they could come on Wednesday between 10 and 1. I called and said those hours wouldn't work and they offered to be there between 8 and 11. On the day of service, two people arrived at 945am, though the invoice says 930am (I was on a conference call with work until 935 am, so I'm quite certain about the times).They did not seem to know what I wanted done. So I walked through the yard pointing out the limbs I wanted trimmed, the beds to be weeded. I marked with orange flag tape three small plants that I was worried would be weeded as they are unusual and hard to see and pointed these specifically out. I pointed out that it was important to me that all of the beds get weeded. And when they started to mulch, to make sure they did the front and side beds first and did the mulching in the back last in case they ran out. (FYI, this was not an English/translation issue--the worker spoke good English and said he is from Ohio).
I left for work and they did the work while I was out. They left sometime before 5pm. The quality of the work is quite poor. If my 12-year old had done it, I would have made him redo the work.
Things I am unhappy with:
One of my three flagged plants is gone.
They did not weed several of the beds.
Where they did weed, I can see weeds along the edges and when I pull those weeds, I see more weeds under the mulch--as if all they did was pour mulch on top of the weeds.
Some of the weeded beds have many many weeds remaining, some of which are 12"+ high, especially close to the plants in the beds--again as if they couldn't be bothered to pull weeds prior to mulching.
There are three piles of mulch over 12" tall in the beds, as if they forgot to finish spreading them.
On the plus side, they did blow the leaves off my lawn, which I did not ask for, and bag and leave the refuse for pickup as I requested. So to someone glancing at the yard, they probably would say it looks good, but it'll be pathetic in a couple weeks as the weeds continue to grow, and I still have to weed the beds they decided not to work on.
Now, you might say I should have supervised them better, but the rate I paid, even with the big deal, was over $30 per hour, so I expect high quality work and self-supervision for those kinds of prices. I am quite disappointed with the quality of this work.

Wonderful experience!
Johnson City Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
is reliable and honest. He is truly knowledgable in Drip Irrigation.
I've used
Johnson City Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
numerous times and have never been disappointed. We haven't used him for lawn maintenance; just sprinkler repairs and adding faucets.
I would not hesitate recommending him.

and his crew did a great job with both tasks. When they didn't finish the weeding in one day, they came back the next day to wrap up the job. The beds looked great after their work. We weren't living in the house at the time, and anytime I drove by, the lawn was cut and the property was cleaned up.

was very responsive if I had to text him any special requests.

Work crew showed up as scheduled and did a superb job. Will definitely use on a ongoing basis for our yard needs.
- Gerald S.

Upon responding to him, he provided details of the cost which did not match the offer. I attempted to schedule a meeting which never happened because of his personal problems. My deposited was refunded by Angie's List upon being notified of my dissatisfaction.
