"
’s Yard Maintenance I highly recommend
’s Yard Maintenance. I have lived in Yorktown Heights, New
" since 1972 and I have been using
’s Yard Maintenance for well over 7 years. The services we use including lawn cutting and maintenance, Spring cleanup, customizing the front yard and around the trees and bushes with chips, shrub cutting and Fall Leaves cleanup. Also snow removal. Several companies we used previously could not compare to
’s in terms of promptness, courtesy of servicing (I once called at 4:00 PM when we were having guests at 6:00 PM to ask if the snow could be plowed – and our driveway and sidewalks were cleared within the hour)!! I also notice compared to other companies that we’ve used in the past that
’s lawn mower blades must be sharpened frequently. With other companies you could tell the blades were dull since the grass would be flat. Besides all this,
’s prices are extremely fair and possibly below other companies. I reiterate that my wife and I are very happy with the workmanship, craftsmanship and the quality of service and we highly recommend
’s Yard Maintenance.

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 made an appointment for a quote. He said he would come by on Saturday but couldn't give me a firm time on when he could stop by. He said he would call me and let me know before he stopped over. He never called much less stopped over. It was his loss on my $3000 job.

We were relieved to contract ahead of the winter season with a company that got good reviews on Angie's List. Unfortunately, our experience wasn't what we hoped for. we've had to call for service (it's supposed to be automatic) several times. On the day of the biggest snow (in Feb.), we missed work because we weren't plowed out (after calling) until mid-day after the snow stopped. We expected all plowing to be done overnight/early morning as the contract stated. Today (3-3-15) we got stuck in the driveway. We were not plowed. When we called, we were told that business plowing is the priority, not residential, and it's going to warm up. ?! Granted, the contract states over 2 inches of snow. However, it would have been good business for this company to plow after 2 or 3 smaller snows to keep our driveway and sidewalk clear. We will not use this company again, and we do not recommend them for residential snow removal. We willingly pay people who do good work; we can't afford people who don't.

Nick and his crew came on time and went right to work, doing everything they said they would do, down to the last details.
I came home at the end of the day, and almost drove by my property, not recognizing my own home it looked so good!!!! Nick has superior social skills, works tirelessly to please his customers and will anything that he knows how to do to make sure the customer is happy. His crew is top notch. Roul has been with him for years and the other guys are equally as committed to Nick as Roul is also to their mission to provide the best customer service possible. Good going guys and thank you for a job well done!!

Went very well. They all worked extremely hard and did a very thorough job. I originally purchased 4 labor hours for $169 but because of the fenced backyard it took extra time and money ($35 per labor hour) to blow leaves out of and over the fence into the woods. They forgot to unload their large tarps which would have made the job considerably easier and probably could have completed closer to 4 hours. Even so, I was please with work ethic. The approximate cost also included the tip

Went fine. Contractor showed up earlier in the day than scheduled due to a morning job being cancelled. No problem, as I was just leaving for a medical appointment. When I returned in the afternoon, job was completed. Area was clean. The only minor issue I had was that instead of removing the debris from the site, as advertised, it was dumped in a trailer I had on the property containing yard waste. However, it included broken pieces of metal zinc strips that had been installed on the roof previously, so when I was disposing of the yard waste, I had to go through it and pick out all the scraps of zinc.

first i would like to say that
Aurora Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
and the crew are very pleasant people. they are, initially, quick to respond to email or telephone calls and just generally very pleasant.
i have 32 trees in my yard. seven are ornamental pear which are eight years (4 trees) and five years (3 trees) years. those were pruned beautifully by this company, but it was under my explicit supervision every step of the way in order to prevent damage.
thirteen of the trees in my yard are (were) crape myrtles, all of which are seven years old and which i nursed from tiny 3' twigs to full 18' - 20' height.. these were planted in a carefully devised plan to provide shade to my house and garden under large, graceful canopies of limbs, flowers, and leaves. it has been a long and tedious exercise training these beauties to accomplish this.
unfortunately, crape murder was committed in my yard. look up the expression and you'll know the horror.
this happened for a few reasons. during
Aurora Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
's initial survey of my trees, i was told that suckers and tiny, too-low twigs would be pulled off (by hand, which was demonstrated), and that the remainder of the trees would be "thinned". that is exactly what i wanted. when you have 32 trees on your property and they are bare during winter months, they must still maintain an attractive shape. under no circumstane should any tree, especially crapes, be topped or chopped. that renders a tree useless for shade and with a completely hideous appearance.
when the crew arrived, nobody rang the bell or knocked on the door to tell me they had arrived. i looked up as i was doing dishes and was startled to see people outside my window. this is not acceptable. ALWAYS notify a homeowner that you have arrived. then, without speaking two words to me, engaging in any conversation no matter how brief, and without reiterating what was to be done or how, four of my crapes were topped. i nearly fainted, i did cry, especially when i saw that the beautiful 20' natchez, which had provided glorious shade during the full sun of summer on my garage, patio, walkway, a/c condenser, and under plantings was now an 8' stump.
yes. a stump.
the worker,
Aurora Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
, stated, "well you don't want that tree on your house". well, actually, yes, i needed it as close to the house and as tall as possible, with only those scrawny limbs which were actually ON the house to be removed. none of the longer branches needed to be chopped off, and certainly they shouldn't be, DEFINITELY not the primary branches which provide structure and support. this tree, all by itself, prevented my garage from becoming 110 degrees as the full sun of summer beats down on it for 14 hours a day. that shade is gone forever now, as is the shade through my entire yard, as is the grace of these former beauties which i nurtured from tiny little saplings.
this complete disaster could have been prevented if
Aurora Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
hadn't been in a hurry, if he had bothered to speak with me prior to beginning his butchery, and wasn't being a lazy gardener. it was a friday, after all, and he wanted to begin his weekend early, as he explained to me himself. "give it a year or two", he said. that is a year or two of no shade during summer months, no beauty, there won't even be any leaves or blooms. even after a year or two, because the leaders have been chopped to nubs, the trees will never be shaped properly because you cannot regrow that portion of a tree, and they will only grow long, scrawny, stringy branches which will not be strong enough to support themselves, because the support was completely obliterated.
all 13 trees now need to be replaced. naturally, it is utterly unaffordable to replace them with trees the same size as they were, so for the next 5 - 7 years i will have to painstakingly tend to 13 more saplings. after paying nearly $1000 for this crape murder, i will also have to pay somebody to remove the existing 13 stumps and plant the new saplings.

, the owner of
Aurora Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
, did not make any offers to rectify the damage...not any of it. he has his money and now won't respond to messages through angie's list.
because they were pleasant people, i thought perhaps they could do some other work for me in my yard (now that i know they must be supervised every step of the way) and i would somehow figure out how to replace $1500 worth of crape myrtles and probably need to come up with another $1k for the labor related to that, but now i cannot even get a response to my request for an estimate.
at the very least, after breaking somebody's heart and truly spoiling 13 trees, a polite decline to perform more work would certainly be a professional way to respond. not responding at all is rather churlish.
again, my pear trees look excellent, but i did have to spend my day pointing and examining and leading this crew to achieve that. if it weren't for this, the rating here would have been "f".

-gets-cut-regrow-84472.html "Crepe myrtles that are consistently cut back hard at an arbitrary height each year, or "topped," have an unattractive "hatrack" look over the winter, with thick stubs that are more prone to insect damage and rot. Topping -- sometimes called "crepe murder" in relation to the tree -- also encourages crepe myrtles to produce more sprouts at the base of the
Aurora Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
and clusters of spindly sprouts that grow straight up, unbranched, from the cuts. The whiplike sprouts will flower, since crepe myrtles bloom on new growth, but bloom time can be delayed by a month as compared to unpruned trees, and the thin stems often droop under the weight of flower clusters.
Proper Pruning The healthiest crepe myrtles are thinned, rather than shortened, and pruned in the dormant season, from late winter to early spring. Once any dead, broken or crossing branches are cut out, you can keep flowers coming, and the tree's size under control by clearing out upper branches growing toward the center of the tree. Eliminate shoots coming up from the base of the tree as well. Dead-heading is optional. If you want to tidy up the tree, either remove individual flower clusters as they fade, or tip prune. In tip pruning, you wait until the tree is dormant, and trim all the branch tips and seed capsules off the tree, rounding the tree back a few inches all over. If you don't cut through any wood that is thicker than a pencil, it doesn't have the same effect as topping."

If he told you he was coming on Wednesday, he didn't. When he set another day, he wouldn't come that day either. Working with him proved more aggravating than we were willing to endure, even if he did a good job he when he actually came.
