“I like them. Good communication. They're professional. They do a good job. Once they performed the service, they tell you what they did, why they did it, what the plan is. They're proactive in terms of calling to put the service plan together. It's a very professional service. We had a little issue, but I liked how they addressed it. I'd give them a B+. It was a little bit short of great because of the little issue. They knew what they were doing.”

“Usually if you have a question for one of their technicians, they actually know what they're applying and what it effects and why they do it when they do it, so it's not like it's just somebody out there just spraying the grass. They actually have knowledge of everything involved in the process. I'd give them an A.”

“I'd say it was kind of negative. I think they destroyed my lawn. I'd rate it poor, so a D. Kind of hard to judge on cleanliness for lawn care. I wouldn't recommend them.”

“The service pricing is at a Premium level, so I expected premium results. I did not get that. My grass looked mediocre and lots of weeds this year. I have had that problem last year. These guys do not appear to spot spray or do a good job of weed prevention.”

“Great. Just one area in the backyard that kept having weeks come back near the fence. Maybe a little better job with spot treatment would be great.”

“I have been using Turf Care Enterprises for over 2 years. They have ‘moved’ with us from one house to another. You can tell the difference between our Turf Care lawn and our neighbors' lawns. It's noticeable in the most positive ways!”

“Good job, Turf Care! The technicians have been very serious about providing a good service to their customers.”

Review by
12/19/2016

“They  have done an excellent job on getting our yard under control. Any of the techs that I have asked questions are very knowledgeable in their answers.”

Review by
12/19/2016

“Turf  care does very good work and our lawn has improved greatly since beginning with them. My only issue is the number of times their sales people call.”

Review by
12/19/2016

“I don't like using lawn treatment because of the negative effects on the environment, but I use Turf Care because I don't like an ugly lawn. Kinda torn.”

Review by
12/19/2016

“Turf Care's employees are always very pleasant to work with, which is why it's a shame that I'm so unhappy with the end result. My lawn looks horrible! Worse than when I started. I have huge spots of bare grass. I mentioned it to my tech at the end of the season and he speculated it might have been too much nitrogen. I don't plan to continue the service next year.”

Review by
12/19/2016

“For the past few years Turf Care Enterprises has provided regular maintenance services on my small lawn, including application of nutrients and herbicides, as well as core aeration. The spring-through-autumn package includes seven treatments. With each treatment the representative provides an evaluation of the lawn's current condition along with suggestions for owner care. The service has improved the quality of my lawn.”

Review by
05/28/2015

“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.”

Review by
05/28/2015

“They’re great—they get the job done. I was sitting on my back patio the other day, and their worker was like, ‘Hey, is it OK if I come and put pesticide on the trees? I can come back if you guys can't go in for a few minutes.’ He's just very considerate. They treat for grubs, and they do all the treatments on the trees and bushes. My dad started talking to their guy and really liked him, so we chose them. I would rate them an A.”

Review by
05/28/2015

“Turf Care have done work for me. I think everything's good. They might have killed some plants or something like that but somebody else came out to take a look at it. My lawn looks good. They do fertilizer and aeration. I think they gave me some kind of a discount at first and that's why we went with them. I'll give them an A for excellent.”

Review by
05/28/2015

“Turf Care is prompt, and they do what they say they're going to do. There are no add-ons or hidden charges—they're just up front and honest. I've had them do aeration, fertilization, and weed killer application. We chose them because of their willingness to come here as quickly as they did, and we've noticed an improvement in the quality of our lawn since using them. I'll give them an A.”

Review by
05/28/2015

“Turf Care's work makes our lawn look a lot better. They fertilize throughout the season. Somebody recommended them to us. It's been a couple years we've been using them—maybe three years. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
05/28/2015

“Maybe it was two years ago. It was okay. They were just an average company. It was okay. They did weeds and seed. It was just happenstance why I chose them. I'd give them a B+.”

Review by
05/28/2015

“I like Turf Care's price. I like the ease of paying online. They do basic fertilizing for me. I chose them over another company because of expertise. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
05/28/2015

“Turf Care are just good service. I can't really say too much more. They do lawn aeration and weeding/seeding for me. I'll give them a B+. They're pretty good.”

Review by
05/26/2015

“I liked Turf Care's customer service. They've done fertilizing for us; we've been working with them for four years. Their product was good, and they followed up—they were responsive when there were questions or issues. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
05/26/2015

“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+.”

Review by
05/26/2015

“They were fine. It's more my husband that deals with Turf Care. I just know they come out and service our lawn. I think the do the trees and the lawncare. I haven't necessarily noticed a difference since we've been using them. I'd give them a B.”

Review by
05/26/2015

“Turf Care take good care of my lawn but they also have good customer service. When I have an issue someone calls me back that day or the next morning, whether it's an issue with regards to something in my lawn or a billing question. They're always really good on the rare occasion my payment goes out late. They're courteous enough to waive a late fee or something like that so they're really great. They treat my lawn like they- they don't cut it. They don't maintain it. They come and treat it with fertilizer, weed control, grub prevention, aerate my lawn, those types of things. They get a solid A from me for sure.”

Review by
05/20/2015

“Turf Care takes the time to assess our lawn each time and document what needs to be done or what looks good—they tailor their service for our yard. They fertilize our lawn and take care of the grass; they don't maintain the grass, but they take care of its health. I’d rate their business an A.”

Review by
05/20/2015

“We've had some really good, positive experiences and then sometimes we have some really bad ones but they usually make up for it. They do our lawn maintenance. I'd give them a B.”

Review by
05/18/2015

“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.”

Review by
05/18/2015

“Turf Care is very professional and does a good job. They do fertilizing for me five times a year, and I've noticed a difference. I've been a customer for years and years—I would recommend them. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
05/18/2015

“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.”

Review by
05/18/2015

“Turf Care seem to be on time and reasonable. They take care of things when you call them. My lawn looks better. They do fertilizing for my lawn. I chose them because they're local and I wanted to support local. I would recommend them. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
05/18/2015

“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.”

Review by
05/18/2015

“We've had them for several years; they did work for me last year, too. They did their job and that was it. They did lawn treatment and aeration for me, and I’ve noticed a change in my lawn. It was much better afterward. They earned an A.”

Review by
05/18/2015

“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+.”

Review by
05/18/2015

“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.”

Review by
05/18/2015

“Turf Care does weed treating and seeding for my lawn. I've got a good relationship with the salesman. He does what he says he's going to do, and I have no problems with my lawn because of it. I chose them because of the salesperson. I've used them for the entire time that I've lived in the house. They’re grade-A.”

Review by
05/18/2015

“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.”

Review by
05/18/2015

“Turf Care has been servicing our lawn for years. We've been very happy with them. They do what they say they're going to do, and our lawn looks beautiful. They do a little bit of everything—we have them do a whole series of work that starts in the spring and ends in the fall. They apply weed killer; then, they fertilize and help the lawn grow. They address any issues and perform any kinds of treatments. They aerate as well. They do everything that the lawn needs. What they do has been great. They don’t always come monthly—it depends on what the treatment is; they could come twice a month or every other month depending on what’s needed. I'd give them an A+.”

Review by
05/18/2015

“I switched from a different company to Turf Care. I just like the product they put down. It's not just spray-fertilizers and weeders. They put down the granules down. It seems to, for the most part, keep the lawn clear of weeds and looking good– at least better than the past companies we've hired. I have noticed an improvement with my lawn since using them. They probably come out five or six times per year, more in the summer obviously. Some of why I chose them over other companies was price and what they were offering. I was shopping to move away from a current provider. I'll give them a B+. To get an A in the future they could work on pricing.”

Review by
05/18/2015

“Turf Care are really wonderful. We love them. They have turned our lawn around. Over a period of about a year it looks largely improved- about two years. It looks like something you could cut golf balls on. They've been very professional. We think that they're affordable. They do great work and we're really pleased with the outcome. They do chemical treatments for us, lawn pesticides. They do those treatments monthly during the season. We're covered with snow for a significant part of the year. We chose them because they were referred. I'll definitely give them an A.”

Review by
05/18/2015

“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.”

Review by
05/18/2015

“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.”

Review by
05/18/2015

“I'm still using Turf Care. I think they were doing very– before they were doing my tree and also the lawn. But I canceled tree services because I'm not very happy about the tree service they did. In my backyard I have six trees, like a maple tree, and they were coming to spray whatever they do, the service, but the one tree was already dead and they didn't tell me. When I found out I said, ‘Why are you coming here to do the maintenance on the tree? Why didn't you mention one of the trees was dead?’ So I canceled the tree services but I kept them for the lawn. They are different groups, different people doing the trees and the lawn. So far I don't have any issues with the lawn service so I keep them. I do not see many weeds in the lawn. They keep the weeds at bay. When they come to do the service I'm not really at home so I really do not pay much attention to them. My lawn looks fine. I don't have anything to complain about. I chose them because of the price. I've been using them for a while. I'll give them a B.”

Review by
05/18/2015

“Turf Care is wonderful. They do a great job. If you're not happy with the results, they'll come out and redo it at no extra charge. They've done lawn care for me—they feed and fertilize he lawn and spray for weeds. They give you an analysis when they come out—if they see that there's a problem area, they tell you what it is, what they recommend, and what you should do about it. I'm on a program with them, so they determine when they're coming out—they come out eight times from spring to fall. They do an early spring feeding and a late spring feeding, the same thing for summer, and then again in the fall. Then, I have them do a core aeration for me, and they do grub control. The grass looks really, really good. I’ve noticed a marked improvement in the quality of my lawn. I'd give their company an A.”

Review by
05/18/2015

“Everything is fine. Turf Care pay very good attention to the scheduling. They've never missed a schedule. I've never had to call them because they missed scheduling. They do a real good job as far as the fertilizer is concerned with the trees and the lawn. They're everything that I expected. I have a very, very tough lawn. I have a very shaded block so it's tough to grow grass. But in the places that it does grow there's a difference to it: no weeds to show. Turf Care were doing my neighbor's so that's how I found them. I'll give them a B.”

Review by
05/18/2015

“I like that Turf Care are flexible. They've also been timely in the way they respond to requests. They fertilize my lawn. We haven't had anything like aeration done. We were going to do that but we did not. And they do grub control. We've been using a similar service for– we've used Turf Care for the last two years. Prior to that we also had a similar service. I also think Turf Care are tidy about how they leave the area when they're done. I would say they're a B+.”

Review by
08/04/2014

“They do what they’re supposed to when you ask them to do it. I asked them to take care of the lawn using various treatments. We chose the company after talking with a combination of people who stopped by to articulate what services they offered—we were comfortable with them. They do a good job; the lawn looks good. They get an A+ in my book.”

Review by
08/01/2014

“I am completely thrilled with Turf Care Enterprises. We’ve had them for several years now, and they do an excellent job. Our lawn looks fabulous since they’ve been treating it. The technicians are nice guys, and they call ahead of time to let us know that they are coming. I recommend them to everybody I know.”

Review by
07/30/2014

“They did basic lawn maintenance as far as fertilizing and aeration, and they took care of our weeds. The grass was really good. I've been using them for two years now, and I'd give them an A.”

Review by
07/21/2014

“I have no problem with Turf Care's services. We hired them last year when the lawn was in bad condition, and now it's beautiful. I wasn't clear on the contract they detailed, but I let the company know.”

Review by
07/21/2014

“I think Turf Care Enterprises did a good job, and the lawn looks great. We've had them for four years already. Our grass looks better, and it's affordable. We do our own mowing, and we just need someone to keep up with the fertilizer I'd give them an A. It would be nice if they would let us know when they were coming, though.”

Review by
07/21/2014

“They treated the lawn. I've used them for a couple of years, and they’re awesome. I found out about them through a friend. I would give them an A+ rating.”

Review by

“Turf Care Enterprises are excellent. I've been using them for a couple of years now. They are always on time, they're around the price range of everybody else, and they do their job. I would use the company again. I'd give them an A+.”

“They've been fertilizing and taking care of our lawn for quite a few years now. They do a good job. I think the quality of their work is excellent, and the technicians are fine. I chose the company because they were recommended by a friend. I would recommend them, too, and I’d give them an A.”

Review by
07/16/2014

“We've probably been using them since they began their business, and we've always had a lot of good relations. We call if we have a problem with either our grass or our trees, and they come out right away. They they're very friendly. They don’t put us off, and they give answers to our questions about the trees. They are just very pleasant people to work with; I've never had any problems with them. I chose them because many years ago, we had spots in the lawn, and I think they were doing work for a neighbor across the street. They put a little flag in the yard, so we called them, and we have been using them ever since. I would recommend them. They’re an A-level company.”

Review by
07/15/2014

“I would use the company again if need be. They cleaned up after themselves after the job was done, and the customer service was good. I'd give them an A rating.”

“We've used Turf Care Enterprises for five years, and we’re very pleased with them. I would definitely recommend them. They do a good, A-worthy job.”
