We love Turf Care. We used another company for three years, and every year, our lawn looked worse. We hired Turf Care, and since they did work last summer, it looks fantastic. Now, they're doing it this year. It hasn't looked this good since we took care of it ourselves. They did pre-emergent treatment for the crabgrass, and they applied weed killer and fertilizer. We used them last summer, and we used them again this summer because we were so pleased.
Turf Care is pretty thorough—our weeds are gone. They also do the bushes. We've noticed a difference in the overall look and feel of our lawn since using them. They come out four times a year, and they are excellent.
Turf Care still services my property. The guys that come to service my home always knock on the door or ring the doorbell before they start the service because they know I've got dogs, and they want to make sure the dogs don't get out. They're very careful with the instructions and with making sure we understand when to let the dogs out after they leave. They're just generally polite, and they're great guys. I would recommend them to anybody. I'm very satisfied with their service and product; my stuff is just looking great. My lawn, my trees, my shrubs—everything looks great. They put fertilizer on the lawn, and I have them do spring and fall aeration of the lawn. They also do all of the lawn care, whether it's grub control, weed control, or fertilizing. They also fertilize my trees and inspect them to let me know whether there are insects so that I know if they have to add another service level. When I send emails to them, they're responded to by the next day. They're a very good company. I would rate them as an A+, no doubt. I'm very preferential with service companies, and they've been doing my lawn services now for at least seven or eight years.
They do chemical treatments for my lawn, and they do it for my trees as well. The lawn looks nice—I've noticed a difference since I started using them. I chose them because people in my neighborhood were using them. I would give them an A+.
Turf Care has done lawn care for us in the past. They're on time, they call beforehand, and they do a good job. We have no complaints. They have put fertilizer on in spring and fall?they do fertilizer, weed control, and seeding. I'd give them an A+.
Turf Care fertilizes my lawn and does weed treatment. My lawn looks great. When I did have a billing problem, it was resolved quickly. I've noticed an improvement in my lawn since using them. They deserve an A.
They're thorough. They fertilize my lawn for me. They always leave me instructions about things that need to be done, and they tell me how things are going. I got a quote from them, and I liked what they were going to do, so I chose them. I've absolutely noticed a change in the quality of my lawn since using them. I'd say they get an A.
I like Turf Care's customer service. They call the night before they're going to show up, and they are out the next day to do the service. When I hired them, they came out and did a complete analysis of my lawn. I like their service; it really gave me a personalized feeling when they came out and did that. The results have been great, too, but I think it starts with the service. I have them do my fertilization—I like to cut and take care of my lawn myself, but I want professional-grade fertilization. I used to do it on my own, but I wasn't getting the results I wanted, so I wanted a professional company to do it because I felt I'd get a better product. I called a company that was local to me, and I had horrible customer service there, so I did some research, and Turf Care popped up. From the first time I talked to them through my current contract with them, they just come through with their service. What they say they're going to do, they do. The results that they said I would have, I have had. I'd give them an A.
I've noticed an improvement in my lawn since using Turf Care. My grass is green and growing. They typically apply fertilizer and stuff like that, and they come out seven or so times per year. They get an A from me.
Turf Care comes and does what they're supposed to do. My grass looks good. If we call with any questions, they're very responsive. They typically do fertilizing treatments for my lawn six times a year. A friend recommended Turf Care, and I would give them an A rating.
