weeds. Their basic package did not and I was frustrated. I did not want to continue paying "one-off"," "special" charges to remove the many different types of weeds that exist. Therefore, I called and emailed to cancel my service and I requested a refund of the services not yet provided. I spoke with the manager and we exchanged over 20 emails. They promised me my money back. It never came and it has still not come. They have asked me to "ask my

"Everything seemed fine at the start. They showed up when they said they would, seemed to do an appropriate job for 3-4 visits. Then came time for the aeration" on 8/17. My wife and I were out of the house for 35 minutes. When we got back, the receipt was on the door stating the technican was there and that he performed the aeration and over-seeding. I looked at the yard, and saw no signs of aeration...no holes or dirt plugs. I did see seed, so I was confused. I called customer service and they sent a note to my local branch in
. Skip, the supervisor/manager/whatever, called me to get my side of the story. He then called back a day or so later on 8/21 and told me that he saw no signs of aeration, was looking into the issue, and would send someone out Monday, 8/24 to complete the service (no apology). I decided to give them a second
and agreed to have them out Monday to aerate. Then Monday came and went without any contact. Then Tuesday. Then I was p*****. I called customer service to issue several complaints: 1. A "lawn service professional" lied on a receipt saying he did a service that he simply did not do. How many other times was this done and I didn't know any better, because there was no evidence? 2. The supervisor committed to fixing the issue on a specific date, then didn't deliver on that committment, and wasn't professional enough to contact me in advance to reschedule. I was ignored. Great way to treat your customers. 3. These "lawn service professionals" are either or incompetent by nature, or trained to be so. I have a weed taking over my yard, yellow nutsedge, that is included in my pre-paid maintenance program. If I know this weed, shouldn't it be assumed that the "professionals" should be able to recognize it and treat for it proactively? I needed to call customer service, sit on hold for 15 minutes, and ask them to specifically treat for it...EVEN THOUGH IT'S INCLUDED IN MY PROGRAM! I heard nothing back for 1 week. I called again to cancel my service and get a refund for the aeration and all future services. Customer Service said I couldn't get a refund for the aeration, since their notes said it was performed. I was blown away by this. I'd be out $145 because a con man was good at lying on documents. The Customer Service agent said he'd need to have the branch manager call me directly to discuss the aeration. Skip from
called me later that day and left a voicemail on my phone saying they dismissed the lying technician, calling him a bad apple, blah blah blah...and he was sending someone to aerate my lawn the next day. Note...I had not heard from him in nearly 2 weeks, since he committed to re-doing the aeration. I had to cancel my service to get his attention. He did not give me a call back number to discuss and cancel the aeration (that I already cancelled)...I've had it with this company. I called customer service the next morning and FINALLY had someone who was interested in helping. She understood my issue right away, cancelled the aeration and submitted a refund request for me. She then sent me her direct email address in case I had any questions. That's good customer service...shame it took 5 tries to get someone who's allowed to be helpful. However...that afternoon my wife called me at work saying a guy showed up and started aerating!!! Does this company not communicate??!?! My wife kicked him off our yard. The next day, THEY CAME BACK AGAIN citing a service call to my address! My wife had to kick them off my lawn again! This company is so shady! I swear they were just trying to sneak on to complete unwanted service to avoid a refund! It's been a few days and I haven't seen the refund...I have very low confidence that I'll see any money back, at which point I'll be wasting my time in small claims court. This is insane. Avoid the
branch of
at all costs!

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.

Since spring, they have come and fertilized and sprayed our lawn for weeds. I've never had a better looking lawn and I get compliments from my neighbors whom I've referred them to

They raise the cost each year without notification to you. I canceled the service because I asked for feedback on my lawn and received a generic printout which told me to water my lawn more. That was not exactly what I was looking for. Did I need dethatching, seeding or aeration??

We have been very satisfied with our
Folsom Lawn Treatment Services Provider Name Locked
Lawn service (fertilizer and weed control) over the last few years, and asked them to aerate and over seed for us this year. The service was very prompt and extremely thorough. However, my wife noticed that the service team got close enough to our underground sprinklers to bend several of the marking flags. As suggested, we immediately tested our sprinkler system to make sure that it was not damaged. The sprinkler heads were fine, but a hole had been punched in our sprinkler line. We also noticed marked damage to our lawn (bald strips) from the equipment. When I called
Folsom Lawn Treatment Services Provider Name Locked
Lawn to tell them that they had punched a hole in our sprinkler line, I was told that our lines should have been low enough to avoid damage, so they were not responsible for any damage. However, the plugs littering our yard are up to 7 – 8 inches long. This indicates that the equipment used by
Folsom Lawn Treatment Services Provider Name Locked
was set to punch 7 – 8 inches deep. The cost to repair our sprinkler line was $88.00 – more than the cost of the Aeration.

I had given up on having a satisfactory lawn.
Folsom Lawn Treatment Services Provider Name Locked
has a five step program, that is, five applications at $50 per application.
Close to the end of my first year using their service, my lawn is healthier, thicker, more satisfactory than I ever expected.
Their representative informed me in detail about their work on my lawn, did the work when they said it would be done.
They deserve an A+ for every for every question.

I hired Green to handle fertilization and weed control services during 2014, and they provided professional and prompt service as expected. Their customer service was great, and whenever I had a question about the lawn care - for example wanting to put down some seed but not wanting to have it killed off by a weed control application - I would get a prompt response and at times a modification to my schedule to meet my needs.
I would absolutely recommend Green. The only reason we did not use them for 2015 is we are renting our property and we no longer wanted to be out of pocket for lawn maintenance that really should be covered by the landlord.

Since June there have been numerous calls to

to rectify the issue by re-sodding the damaged part, A manager came out in early
Folsom Lawn Treatment Services Provider Name Locked
and I was told this would be done. I waited a month and nothing happened. Calls to the main office are handled by very nice people who try to

down customer frustration but the local office does not return phone calls. Even calls made where the manager is on the phone and will return the call in a few minutes take several more calls to the main office before someone locally responds. About 2 weeks ago I finally got to speak to the manager who came out in
Folsom Lawn Treatment Services Provider Name Locked
and he assured me this would be done right away and apologized for not following up. Within an hour I got a call from the subcontractor who asked what kind of grass I have so he could order. A week went by and when I called (again) the polite customer service lady at the main office read the notes on the account and apparently a decision was made not to re-sod but no one called to tell me. With the time invested in making this company follow through on promises made, I could have done my own lawnwork and saved a lot of money and aggravation.

After installing a sprinkler system and new sod I decided to contract a reputable service to fertilize. I've been using
