“They were great.”

“They took up layers of soil out of the front yard. We had a weed problem, so they took off layers of soil, treated the yard, and laid down sod. I would grade Turf Center an A.”

Review by

Review by

“They  do all my landscaping. They do the work, send the bill, and it's done. They've been doing it for twelve years. They're A”

Review by

“They do aerating, seeding, fertilization, and they take care of my bushes. They are very responsive, their work is good, and they're reasonably priced. You can give them A across the board.”

Review by
05/09/2016

“I had them install some sod, some stone, and some groundcover. The work that they did seems to be what I was looking for. I had an erosion problem and I think they may have solved it. I would rate it an A.”

Review by
05/09/2016

“They did some landscaping for us. They put in sod, some hardscaping, sprayed, and did some weeding for us. I think their owner is very involved. He came out a couple times to look and answer some questions for us throughout the process. I would give them an A. We had a couple issues with the weeding, so we had to have them come back and take a look at some stuff. They were responsive, but it involved a call back.”

Review by
05/09/2016

“They trimmed two bushes that were in the front of the house and they have also done lawn fertilization for us over the winter. The first time that they came out to trim the bushes, the person who was speaking with me said that he was afraid that if he cut them down as short as I wanted them to that they might not survive the winter. The fact that he was knowledgeable about that and was then able to say, ‘hey, I'll cut them shorter and then finish the job in the spring once they've wintered so that they don't die’ made me feel confident that they knew what they were talking about. Overall, I would give them a B”

Review by
05/09/2016

“They do regular weeding and fertilizing. They put in our lawn in the backyard when we first got there, but that's it. They laid the turf down in back. I like that they're timely and do good work. Our lawn looks good. I would say a B. Our lawn looks great, but it's not as great as we would have liked it. They put the turf in and we had to argue a little bit with them at the beginning, because they had given us a guarantee on the lawn. Then they claimed that since they didn't do the first six months of service that they didn't actually provide the guarantee. So we had them start providing service to the lawn and it improved, but it's still not as good.”

“They did landscaping work for me. They worked for me on two different occasions. One was a number of years ago. They put in a lot of plants. This last one was more in the way of landscaping: edging, mulching, and putting in some stones for drainage. It went well. I had no complaints. I had a couple of issues, which they came back and corrected, so the end was good. I contacted them about the follow-up. It was nothing glaring, just things I thought needed to be done a little differently. I found them through a neighbor. He used them for drainage problems around his house, so I got the name from him. I'd give them a flat B.”

Review by
10/05/2015

“They were great. They were very punctual. They came when they had planned on coming, they did the work in a timely fashion, and they did a really beautiful job. They did our landscaping in the front of our house. They put some pavers down and really landscaped our entire front yard. They were the only ones we looked at because they got a really good rating in the Howard County Best Pick Reports. It's been a few months, and the work looks great. They're definitely A”

“They got the snow out of my driveway. I liked the owner, and I liked the son—I liked all of it.”

Review by
10/01/2015

“I think that they did a wonderful job. It was a little bit of time for me from the time they said they were going to do it to when they did it, but I think they did a phenomenal job. For their work, I'd grade them A.”

Review by

“I've used Turf Center Lawns. They're very good. I like them very much.”

Review by
09/29/2015

“Turf Center Lawns did work for me a while ago. They came in when they were supposed to, they did their job, and they did it well. Their workman was very thorough and wanted to do the best job that he absolutely could. You could tell that he was very proud of what he did. We had a retaining wall in a large window well that was buckling. It was in a hard area to access, and he got it fixed up so that it wouldn't buckle and made it strong again. He dug up an area where there were plants, and when he fixed it up, he made it look nice again. A friend of mine at work recommended the company. I'd give them an A. I'd have given them an A”

Review by
09/29/2015

“I've been working with them for years. They do what they say they're going to do when they say they're going to do it—it's called integrity. They've done landscaping and yard maintenance. They do my fertilizer and chemical treatments as well. They've never done tree trimming. I've referred the company already. I've never had to call them back for issues. They deserve a solid A.”

Review by
09/29/2015

“They did the work the way they promised, and that was very good. They did some drainage work. The customer service was fine. Everything was great. They did it perfectly, and their customer service was great. They're A”

Review by
09/29/2015

“I liked the completeness of their work. They did everything they were supposed to do in a timely manner. They were a friendly crew with professional demeanors, not only the owner but also the staff that showed up to the home. They're lawn maintenance, so they've done everything from spring-fall cleanup to turf evaluation to seeding the lawn and trimming. I've been using Turf Center Lawn for 20 years. I've never had to call them back about any issues. I'd tell anyone to hire them. They’re very good. They get an A”

Review by
09/29/2015

“Really, my husband dealt with them mostly, but we're still using them, so I'd say it's been positive. We've been using them for three years. They've done lawn care and lawn mowing. They also do the fertilizer and other lawn treatments. We've referred them to our neighbors. I'd say they deserve an A.”

Review by
09/29/2015

“They're very efficient. They do lawn care. They do the weed spray and chemical treatments as well. I've used them for over ten years, and I've never had any issues or had to call them back. I'd recommend them to anyone. They come to my house once a week. I'd grade them with an A.”

Review by
09/29/2015

“I liked the quality of their work. They came in this time to do cleanup and landscaping. They didn't do any fertilizing or tree service. I heard about the company through a friend. I had to call them back for an issue, but they responded very quickly, and they took care of everything. They deserve a B.”

Review by
09/29/2015

“I've been using Turf Center Lawns. They're fine. They're very nice, and they're very good. I've used them for about three years. I've never had any problems with the company. I'd recommend the company to a friend or neighbor. I'd say a B suits them best.”

Review by
12/23/2014

“They did the job, they did it right, and I haven't had any problems since then. They put in a drain field for me. I have not had any issues with the work, and I would recommend them. They're excellent—they get an A grade.”

Review by
12/23/2014

“They're clean and on time. They do everything correctly, and I have no problem with them. I would recommend them. They've done seeding and lawn maintenance for me, and I've noticed a positive change since using them. I'd say they're an A”

Review by
12/23/2014

“They did landscaping work for me. I've been using them for a couple of years. They're professional and friendly, and they clean up after themselves when they do work. They cut my grass every week, and they did a good job. There was nothing wrong with them. I guess I'd say they're an A”

Review by
12/23/2014

“Turf Center Lawns does fertilizing and lining, and when I need a personal consultation on my lawn, they come out on time. I have no complaints whatsoever. I have absolutely noticed a positive change in my lawn, so I would give them an excellent rating—they get an A.”

Review by
12/23/2014

“They do what they say they're going to do, they show up on time, and they're very professional. They landscaped my front and backyard, and they did a wonderful job. I've noticed a positive change in regards to the work they've done for me. They deserve an A grade.”

Review by
12/23/2014

“I just really like dealing with the owner. He knew exactly what I needed done, and the work was great. They fixed some drainage issues and resodded the front and back of my house. Not only would I recommend them, but I have already. They get an A grade from me.”

Review by
12/23/2014

“I have a year-long contract with Turf Center, so they do all my fertilizing, maintenance, and all that stuff. They also rolled out new grass on my front and back lawns. They’re great, and I've noticed a positive change in my lawn—it's perfect. I’ve done a lot of contracts with them, and a lot of people in our neighborhood use them. I think they deserve an A”

Review by
12/23/2014

“Turf Center Lawns did great work for us. The lady was really great. She was very responsive and gave us personalized service that was really in line with our vision of what we wanted to do. They built a very large retaining wall into my stonework, and they did this beautiful planting all around it, so the work was extensive. We highly recommend them.”

Review by
12/23/2014

“They did about $300,000 worth of landscaping for me. They've done stone walls, patios, new turf, trees, lights—pretty much everything—and they've done all the maintenance ever since. What stood out to me was their individualized client service. I've absolutely had a positive change in my lawn since using them. I'd rate them as an A”

Review by
12/23/2014

“They did some water diversion work on our yard. A person who used to work there, Mary Ellen Barker, was very good with lawn care. There are some things about them that I would recommend, but I'm not sure I’d recommend them for lawn care; I stopped using them once she left. I'd grade them as an A- because they were pricey.”

Review by
12/23/2014

“They've done work for me in the past. They come and do what they're going to do when they're going to do it. They show up on time. They're very professional. They relandscaped my front and back yard, they did a wonderful job. I've noticed a positive change in my yard since working with them. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
12/23/2014

“They typically do five or six treatments a year. Their phone system is horrible. I hired Turf Center when they were a local company, and I was able to call the manager at my local office and get things done properly. I am still getting things done properly because I have the cell phone number of the tech who works on my lawn, but I get robocalls, and people come when they shouldn't, so they are not satisfactory. I continue to use them for my lawn care services because I still work with my original tech, and I occasionally get my local office. My local service is excellent—A”

Review by
12/23/2014

“They were very good, and they did a really good job for me. They did a lot of landscaping work, and they went over and above what they said they were going to do. There was a lot of little extras involved; they didn't charge me, and the people who came by really did a good job and knew what they were doing. They've done stonework—they rebuilt an entryway, a patio, and walls. They planted a number of different kinds of plants all around the outside. They did good work all around the whole house, front and back. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
12/23/2014

“They were conscientious, they maintained the yard quite well, and we've been pleased with them. They do landscaping work for us—they do lawn maintenance and weeding. They've been pretty conscientious about it, and the foreman assigned to our house has been excellent. We've noticed an overall improvement in the look of our lawn since we've used them. They get an A rating from us.”

Review by
12/23/2014

“We used them to relandscape around a house that had a bad basement problem. They relandscaped to route water away from the house, and they came back just once to tweak it. We waited for the rain, they checked it, and we talked about what might fix it. They completely fixed it; there have been no problems since then. I got prices from two companies and had Turf Center do the work. They did a great job. I told the people who bought the house, ‘If you have any problems in the next few months, give me a call because Turf Center will come back out and correct it.’ They haven't called me, so I'm assuming everything is fine. It looks great. I’d rate them as an A because they kept working on it until they were done.”

Review by
12/23/2014

“I’ve worked with Bill Patton at Turf Center Lawns for about 20 years—he’s one of my very favorite people to ever work with. He’s fabulous. I used to have an acre of land that was swamped and horrible, and now I don’t. He solved my drainage issues and put in some patios, and he’s done some stuff at my new house, too. He’s honest, hardworking, and doesn’t stop until he gets the job done right. He’s really the best, and they’re absolutely an A”

Review by
12/23/2014

“They do annual lawn care—seeding and things like that. They've done bushes, stone walls, and drainage work for me in the past; they've done all sorts of things. They come on time and do what they say they're going to do, and they do it well. They're reasonably priced. I've been using them for about five years. I interviewed maybe half a dozen people because it was a big drainage job, and there was no question about using them. They’re an A”

Review by
12/23/2014

“Their customer service was excellent, and I liked their responsiveness. They're knowledgeable, their expertise regarding the situation with my lawn was very good, and they took the time to really explain to me what was happening. They do lawn maintenance for me in order to make sure I don't get weeds. I get treatments every season. My lawn is looking really good. I would absolutely recommend them to others. I would give them an A grade.”

Review by

“They planted trees for me. It was easy to use them. I would recommend them, and I would give them an A for their excellent work.”

Review by

“Turf Center Lawns did a repair on a property for me, and they put down some sod. I would recommend them. I actually used to purchase a lot of sod and stuff from them. I would give them an A grade.”

Review by

“They've done work for me in the past. I like that they're a local business. They've done mowing and spring cleanup. I would recommend them to a neighbor or friend. I'd give them an A.”

Review by

“Turf Center did some hydroseeding and grating. They did a good job all around, and they backed their work up, which was great. I would recommend them, and I'd grade them as an A.”

“I was satisfied with their services. They came when they said they would. My lawn was torn up for some plumbing work and they reseeded it. They weren't great but they weren't terrible. They get a B grade.”

Review by

“They had one designer that we worked with that was particularly good. She did a design, the whole property. Her crew executed some of it. I had another crew that did most of the hardscape stuff. I would recommend them. I'd grade them a B”
