A selection of 257 homeowner reviews:
“Turf Care's personnel always call the day before to let us know they are going to be coming out. Since we have been using their services, our lawn and trees look healthy. We also like the fact that they have a local office and are always available to answer our questions—A+.”
“All my encounters with Turf Care have been excellent. I always get a return call quickly, and I'm getting friendly, expert advice.”
“Our lawn is the best in the neighborhood. Grass stays green longer and is a brighter green—A+.”
“They have done an excellent job getting our yard under control. Any of the techs that I have asked questions are very knowledgeable in their answers—A.”
“They do very good work, and our lawn has improved greatly.”
“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.”
“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.”
“We have used Turf Care for many years. They are very responsive when I bring something to their attention, either with the lawn or trees. Their knowledge of trees, shrubs and lawn is very broad and deep. They are usually on top of the most recent problems and use the most up to date products. One key success we have had with them is the treatment of our two large Ash trees against the Emerald Ash Bore. We have over an acre of property and almost 70 trees.”
“We have been a customer for years and are very happy with the service! Many of our neighbors say our lawn looks great!”
“Great service.”
“Good job, Turf Care! The technicians have been very serious about providing a good service to their customers.”
“Great maintenance, but no planning and little communication about how to address problem areas in my lawn. I really want to have a better lawn all over, so the weak spots need attention. Right now those areas of my lawn don't get the help needed.”
“I have been using Turf Care Enterprises for over 20 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!”
“I have noticed customer service is quick to respond and handle issues. I also have seen the thoroughness of my technician - he even blows the loose fertilizer back into lawn. Good stuff - happy customer.”
“Compared before and after using Turf Care, the lawn situation is totally exceptionally beautiful.”
“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.”
“Overall, the yard has been looking way better than when we bought the house. Really thought the Creeping Charlie would have been more controlled now that we have been through two seasons, only complaint.”
“I had a major issue with 'creeping Charlie' on my lawn. Because the grass is so healthy now, the creeping Charlie is a minor issue. I recommended them for a neighbor whose grass was overcome with creeping Charlie and now their grass looks great too. Along with their recommendation to mow high, our grass looks green and full.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“Turf Care Enterprises is really wonderful. We love them. They have turned our yard around—it looks largely improved. They've been very professional, they do great work, and we're really pleased with the outcome. They do monthly chemical treatments for us. I'd definitely give them an A.”
“Turf Care has been servicing our lawn for years. We've been very happy with them, and our lawn looks beautiful. We have them do a whole series of work that starts in the spring and ends in the fall. They apply weed killer and then fertilize and help the lawn grow. They do everything the yard needs. What they do has been great. I'd give them an A+.”
“Turf Care is wonderful. They do a great job. I have them do a core aeration for me, and they do grub control. The grass looks really, really good, and I've noticed a marked improvement.”
“I've been using them for three years. They're great. The quality of their work was excellent, and they have good service. I'd recommend them, and I would grade them as an A+.”
“Turf Care Enterprises was outstanding. They did everything—fertilizing, seeding, and aerating—and I had no issues at all. The customer service was what made it the most positive for us. They should get an A+.”
“They were very friendly, they did good, quality work, and their product worked wonderfully. Everything has held up great. Turf Care earned an A+.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“We've been with them for about four years. They're easy to work with. They are very reliable, and they do a good job on our lot. I would recommend their services. They're an A+ company.”
“Last year was our first year hiring Turf Care Enterprises, and we renewed this year because we're really happy. They are timely, and everybody is friendly and professional. When they give us our bill, they also provide informational pages on how to treat our lawn. I'd give them an A.”
“They come out to do the fertilizer treatment, and it's always done well. My neighbor's yard has no treatment, and I can see a definitive line where their patch of weeds ends and my yard starts, plain as day. They deserve an A+.”
“They are very thorough and professional, and I like the results they're generating. Last time I used them, they did some weed control. They get an A.”
“I have Turf Care Enterprises come out monthly to do my ongoing lawn service. They do good, quality work. Our lawn looks good, and they are responsive if I have a question. I'd rate them as an A+.”
