A selection of 101 homeowner reviews:
“I've had Turf Center Lawns for a decade or more, and they've done a great job. They do the typical lawn service five times a year. My grass is the best on the block. I'd grade the work an A+. I have already recommended them to my neighbors.”
“They've done general lawn care. I get the same the guy to do my lawn every time, which has never happened before. Their responsiveness is an A+.”
“They're great. They sodded the front of my house, they maintain my grass, and they take care of the lawn. They do a good job; they do what I expect. I'd give them an A+.”
“They've done all my landscaping for 12 years. They do the work, send the bill, and it's done. They're an A+ on everything.”
“Turf Center Lawns takes care of the lawn. It's excellent work.”
“They do landscaping and patio construction. They're excellent.”
“We did have a positive experience. The work has been excellent with no complaints.”
“They have done everything from stonework, mulching, aerating, seeding, fertilizing, and weed control. Landscaping is like plant installation, they have done that in the front and back. I'd forgotten about the azaleas they put in the back 25 years ago. They did a stone walkway. They're consistently good and they do what they say they're going to do when they say they're going to do it, and I can't tell you how many contractors don't do that. I have never not been completely satisfied. I've got to give them an A+. Honestly, I've been lucky, because everybody drops the ball sometimes. I've never been on the receiving end of a dropped ball by them. They were good. I do recommend them all the time.”
“They did a lot of sod work. I used to have flooding in the back lawn in the backyard, so they did a swell and they were able to get the water to flow away from the area that was flooding toward the house. They return phone calls, come on time, they're neat, and they know exactly what they're doing. I'd rate it A+.”
“They have put fertilizer on in the fall and the spring, and then they aerated and reseeded. I like that they showed up. I give them an A rating.”
“We've used them for years. They weed, feed, and do minor landscaping. They take care of our grass. They don't mow it, but they will put down lime, it depends on the time of year whether it's pre-emergent, lime, or spraying for weeds. They're a family-owned company and we've used them for probably 30 years. I'd give them an A rating.”
“They're doing lawn care maintenance. I like that they show up. They get an A from me.”
“They're fine. The only thing they do is spray chemicals on the grass. I don't have any complaints.”
“This is the fifth year that I'm using them. They fertilize, aerate, and weed. I have zero complaints.”
“I had a positive experience.”
“They fertilize. I have their annual program for fertilization and weed control, but it's like a few visits a year. It's lawn care. It looks like they have a customized approached for the lawns, because before them I had another service and I didn't see any difference between them being there or the quality of the lawn. I had seen their work at my neighbor's house, and I decided to try. They improved the look dramatically. I'd rate it an A. I use them like three times or four times a year to put something into the ground.”
“They come several times a year and do weed prevention and seeding. Our lawn looks great. We've had them work for us a number of years and a lot of our neighbors compliment on how good our lawn always looks. I would grade it an A.”
“That's the company that takes care of our lawn. Whenever we've called with anything, they've been right here. They treat our lawn like four or five times a year. I like the fact that they do respond to whatever questions we have, and if we have an issue in the yard then the owner is right over here looking at it. We are happy with them.”
“They usually apply nutrients to our lawn and pesticide. They come when they say they're coming and they do their work. They get an A from me.”
“They take care of the chemical treatment of my lawn, fertilizing, and weed control. They don't do any mowing. They come four or five times a year for general lawn care. They get the job done. They don't use more chemicals than necessary, especially in terms of either pesticides or herbicides. They mostly spot treat as opposed to spraying everything. I'd give it an A grade.”
“My wife usually deals with that stuff. The yard looks good.”
“We've been dealing with them for probably 35 years, maybe longer. They do lawn renovation. We've known them for so long; we like everything about them. I would rate everything A. They have great customer service, they're easy to get a hold of, and they call you back.”
“They apply their chemicals and treat the lawn. General lawn care. They're prompt, the lawn's green, and they do proper care to it. We'll go with an A grade.”
“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.”
“We have a good experience. We were happy about what we saw. We had a positive experience.”
“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+.”
“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.”
“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.”
“They got the snow out of my driveway. I liked the owner, and I liked the son—I liked all of it.”
“I've used Turf Center Lawns. They're very good. I like them very much.”
“I liked the completeness of Turf Center Lawns' work. They are a friendly crew with professional demeanors—not only the owner but also the staff. They've done everything from spring and fall cleanup to turf evaluation to seeding and trimming the lawn. I've been using them for 20 years, and I'd tell anyone to hire them. They're very good—A++.”
“Turf Center Lawns was great. They were very punctual, and they did a really beautiful job. They put some pavers down and landscaped our entire front yard. It still looks great. They definitely get an A+ grade.”
“They did a wonderful, phenomenal job. I'd rate them as an A.”
“I've been working with Turf Center Lawns for years. They do what they say they will—it's called integrity. They have done landscaping and yard maintenance, and they deserve a solid A.”
“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+ grade.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“They seed my lawn. They come on time. I watch them as they're working, and the lawn looks good. I would recommend them. I'd say they deserve an A.”
“Turf Center Lawns built a rain garden for us. They did the job that they were supposed to do, and they did it on time and for the price they'd quoted. They should get an A.”
“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.”
“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+.”
“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.”
“They're wonderful people to work with—definitely an A+.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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+.”
“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+ company.”
“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.”
“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.”
“They just do good work. I'd say they're excellent.”
“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.”
