Reviews for Lawn Aeration in Chicago
ADLS LANDSCAPING INC
Every fall DLS Landscaping offers a special on lawn aeration and I have taken advantage of the great price for a number of years now. You can't even rent a core aeration machine and do it yourself for this price.

I contacted James regarding lawn aeration services for me and a few of my neighbors on a Monday. He visited our neighborhood the next day to confirm size of the lots and cost of services. He took the time to explain the advantages of waiting until after the pending rain to perform the aeration and was out the following Monday to perform the aeration service. James agreed to provide us a volume discount due to the fact six of us in the neighborhood decided to have our lawns aerated at the same time. James was responsive, helpful, and professional. I will not hesitate to use him again in the future.

Great! I was sure to water the lawn deeply the day before the appointment so the aerator penetrated fully.

Communication was extremely difficult. It was hard to connect with the provider and they seemed to have their own problems communicating with each other. These communication issues resulting in the contractor aerating my lawn twice in one week, tearing up my lawn. The first time the work was done, I was pleased. I had a few stressed areas in the lawn that held up nicely. A couple days later, someone else from the company showed up to do the aeration. Thankfully, they realized it was done and left. They sent me an email letting me know of the mixup. A few days after that I received an email that my aeration had been rescheduled. I immediately responding to the email telling them the work had been done, but received no response. Just a few days later, another tech showed up and aerated the lawn again. Perhaps just because they were aerating on top of a recently aerated lawn, or perhaps the person was just more aggressive with the machine, but the stressed areas of my lawn now look like dirt patches. I was debating using these guys again in the spring, but have not intention of that now.

They are in town so I gave them a try. Workers were pleasant and went right to the task. They also called back quickly and showed up within the week which I appreciated given the busy time of year. They missed areas and did not cover the entire yard as requested. They also charged more than the initial quote after stopping by. The initial quote was in line with others I received. I felt they charged a premium price for an average job. I will give someone else a try next time.

It saddens me to write this review. Apparently The Green Art is no longer being managed by Arturo anymore. Arturo had to have been the best landscaper that I’ve ever hired! He worked for me for the last nine years without one single problem! He was always punctual, efficient, reasonably priced, and did a great job! There is a new owner named Hector who is a discombobulated mess. Hector explained to me that Arturo retired and he has taken over the business. He explained to me that if Arturo came out to my house for the last nine years and I was a loyal customer he would do me the same favor and keep coming to my house. I made that call back in late July to have The Green Art aerate my lawn for the week of September 11. I’ve done this for the last nine years due to my fall seating and fertilizing schedule. Arturo has always accommodated the date and always watched the weather to make sure that if it was going to rain on the date he would either come before or only a day or so after the date that I had scheduled. Needless to say September 11 came and went and not one word from Hector. I had to call his answering service repeatedly to get him to call me back. After a four days and four phone calls later he finally called me back on September 15 to explain to me that he was backed up because of the Labor Day weekend. At that point I was so frustrated I decided that a nine-year run was good enough and ended our relationship. If you do decide to go with this business, just be aware that they are not punctual and do not return your calls in a timely manner. This is no longer The Green Art, it is The Green Hector.

ARaeke's Lawncare Service
Raeke Lawncare arrived for the $70 lawn aeration special in about a week. They do aeration days every week or so in the mid season. I arrived when they were just leaving. The job they did was excellent. They pointed out where they aerated, and also mulched and seeded in some spots where necessary. They did an awesome job and am looking forward to hiring them again.

Good, we tried many companies that wouldn’t do our small yard. Glad someone was willing to get this done for us.

Responded quickly to my request for service. They were very honest regarding when they would at our house. Given that the fall is the time of year to aerate, they were extremely busy and apologized that they might not be there for a few days. They also were sure to call before they came so that we could make sure the gates were unlocked. The job was done well and our lawn looks great.

No real problems except the technician brought the wrong size aerator and had to return the following week with the correct size. However, the second appointment was set up quickly and efficiently.
Recent Review: Their service is very good. They are punctual. They were very thorough. They walked me through what they were going to do and how much it would cost before they stared the work and they also walked me through after the work was completed.
Recent Review: The spring weather in 2016 was quite unpredictable including a snow fall. Keith accommodated the weather and kept me updated. For the day that it snowed, he professionally arranged for an alternate day to aerate the lawn. The size of the plugs from the aeration appear to be appropriate and of sufficient depth to improve the lawn's growth. Keith arrived at the scheduled time and completed all of the work in under 1 hour. I marked the irrigation system and drains and he did the aeration around the objects. He did a reasonable amount of cleanup of the walkways.
Recent Review: We've used this company for 2 years and they are fantastic!! They are thorough and I am thrilled with how my yard looks ~ since they are here on Fridays, it looks good for the weekends! They do such a great job on my yard that the neighbors next door also hired them to do the weekly maintenance on their yard, as well as having some landscaping jobs done this summer. Joe runs a tight crew ~ he's there working along side them and they are all very professional & friendly. They will continue to have our business for years.
Recent Review: Great! Ramon and his crew arrived on time and had all the work done in no time. Great job and very professional. I would definitely use them again. I'm even considering setting up a regular service schedule. I've used other lawn services before and they can't compare to Del Rio's! Good work, great price and timely. Thanks!

Recent Review: I called to get my lawn aerated. They had a $99 special for up to an acre and came out in a couple of weeks. There was some delay due to the weather but it didn't matter because they came while I was at work and said they could bill me. Worked out well for me and I was pleased with the results.
Recent Review: So far we had the lawn aerated and one application of their fertilizer and weed killer. Within a week most of the weeds started dying. Lawn is getting thicker and more green. I'll update this review by the end of the treatments. Se signed up for 6 total.
