“They're very good at their job. They do everything professionally. They take care of the lawn. They take care of the trees and the bushes. They do everything. I had no complaints whatsoever and I would highly recommend them.”

“It's a local company and the workers were nice coming out. The lawn's looking real good. I'd give them an A+.”

“It's the same guy so it's always positive. They do everything that they are supposed to do. Nice and friendly. I would grade them an A.”

“They're doing good. They're taking care of my lawn, and they're doing a good job. They're an A.”

“They did good work. I'm very happy with their work.”

“They do great work, their quality and great customer service and great follow up. I would grade them an A.”

“No problems. They're friendly. I'd give them an A.”

“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.”

“They've just been doing their job. Overall, I would grade them an A.”

“They were fine, no issues. They've just done a nice job for me on the lawn. I didn't have any complaints and I'd highly recommend them.”

“The only thing is that I get a phone call once a week. They just come out and do their job, I do have some weeds every once in a while though. I would grade them an A.”

“Overall, I would give the experience and their quality of work an A.”

“I know the company and I know what kind of work they do, which is why I have them do it. Overall, I'd give them an A.”

“We've had them for years and they do a pretty good job. I would grade them an A.”

“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+.”

“They did great work, they gave great customer service, and they were very timely and very clear about what they do. They're a great company to deal with—A+.”

“They do our lawn, and I'm very happy with their quality of work. They should get an A+ grade.”

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.”

“I think Turf Care is great. The technicians are very friendly, and they get done in a timely fashion. I would recommend them, and I'd give them an A.”

“They did everything. The quality of their work seems to be good; I'm very satisfied with it. The customer service was fine. They cleaned up after themselves, and they finished up in a reasonable amount of time. I would give Turf Care an A rating.”

“I'm on a service contract with Turf Care Enterprises—they maintain the lawn and the trees. It holds up well all season. I heard about them through a neighbor, and I'd suggest them, too. They're an A.”

“They fertilized and aerated. I had no problems with the crew, and the quality of their work was good. They were always on time and did what they were supposed to do. I'd give them an A.”

“They fertilized around our lawn, and I had no difficulties with them whatsoever. They came and performed their services on time, and they seemed to know what they were doing. I would give them an A.”

“They did lawn care. I've been using them for a couple of years, and the positive results have kept us using them. They have earned their A grade.”

“They do fertilizer and weed treatment. I like the way they've made the lawn look after treating it for several years—it looks very healthy. They leave me nice summaries of what they've done that day. I chose them because when I bought the house, I was referred by the real estate company that I used. I'd give them an A.”

“Turf Care Enterprises does what the program requires them to do, and I have no complaints. They're very courteous, they usually do the work quickly, and they do a good job. They get an A.”

“We've had a contract with them for the lawn for many years, and they're doing a good job. The lawn looks fine, so the work is holding up. I would grade them as an A.”

“They do lawn treatments, and they also do tree and bush treatments. They are very good at following through. I would tell the company we had before things like, 'This bush seems to have a lot of bugs on it,' and they would not be able to figure out what to do with it, whereas Turf Care is very good about that. Their people are knowledgeable and very dependable, and the lawn looks better. They deserve an A.”

“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.”

“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 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.”

“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.”

“Turf Care does regular lawn maintenance, and they're good, I guess. I would use them again. It's been positive. I would say they rate an A-.”

“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.”

“If you want to know who the best in Chicago is, it's Turf Care. They spray, do treatment for the trees, and lay down application for us. They know the area and the soil, and they take soil treatment samples, so they know the disease and how to fix it—they diagnose properly. The Turf Care guys get it right.”

“I'm completely happy, satisfied, and thrilled with Turf Care. I like the way they operate. They take care of feeding the lawn and help cut down on the weeds. I have fruit trees that they spray, and they do general maintenance. I'd give them an A+.”

“The yard was a total mess at the start of the springtime, and I said, 'We have to do something,' so we hired Turf Care, and they did a really good job. We had creeping charlie and violets, which are both really tough to get rid of. They used a new experimental spray on my backyard. I think there must be one left, and there must've been a couple thousand of them back there. I tried everything to get rid of them. They got rid of my ants and clover. The representative was a very nice man, and the service rep is very knowledgeable and very experienced. He said, 'I don't know if I can get rid of this.' We gave it ten different tries, and it worked. I've had other companies' services over the years, and I'd pretty much fired them. Now it's really pretty impressive. I'd give them an A+.”

“They've done maintenance for the past couple of years. They're reliable, and what they're doing is working—my lawn looks great. Their response time is excellent. I would give them an A+.”

“I think they did a great job. They're timely, they use good products, and they've really done a good job on my lawn—it's probably the best in the neighborhood. I'm happy with the products they use—they're pet safe, they're dry, and they're organic. All in all, it's been a very good, very positive experience. I get good information and suggestions from them about my lawn. I've been using them for about three years, and I'd give them an A+. They did a great job.”

“They did regular maintenance for us as far as fertilizer, but they also did insect treatment and repair of my lawn. They were just very committed to making sure that I was satisfied. It was excellent. I would give them an A.”

“They do two different things—they do the grass, and they treat my trees. The grass looks very good. It's the best it's been—very thick, with no weeds. They came recommended, and that's how I found them. I was using local places, and I didn't like the quality of their service, so I found Turf Care and tried them. I'd give them an A. They give very fine service, and it's well worth the investment.”

“They did a pretty good job. I liked the result and their service overall. They're timely. They've been treating our lawn for three seasons. I can tell a noticeable difference in my lawn now—it's bigger. I would give them an A+. I think other homeowners should give them a try. If you want a green lawn with very little maintenance, Turf Care is where you need to go.”

“For the past two or three years, they've done my yard's weed control and fertilization. The guy that comes out knows that I'm here and comes to the door to talk to me about things—it's personal. He's very friendly and very personable, and he gives me little suggestions. I think they're an A+.”

“They did everything they said they were going to do, they did it when they said they were going to do it, and I never really knew they were here. It was nice. They applied weed control to my lawn, performed aeration, and did all of the treatments for the lawn. I've been using them for years; they come every couple of weeks. I'd give them an A+.”

“The people that come out are caring, and they make our yard look nice. We've been using them for three or four years now. The technician leaves the bill on our door, and we just send it in. I'd say they are an A+. We mention Turf Care Enterprises to the people in the neighborhood that don't have a good yard.”

“The grass is growing, and the weeds are dead—they have done a very good job. We've been using them over the last four months. We took out a maintenance contract with them. I'd give them an A+. They're very respectful of their surroundings, and they're very nice and professional. They provide really good customer service, they're prompt and on time, and they do what they say.”

“The guy originally came out to talk to me and explain everything that could be done, and then he came out and sprayed. There was someone here the next day checking to make sure it was correct. They're an A+ company.”

“They're pretty competent and responsive. They did the lawn, the trees, and some trimming. Everything looks good—the grass looks great. I have no complaints. A+.”

“Turf Care did our lawn fertilizing. They did what they were supposed to do and what we requested. They leave reports with information. They did our lawn fertilizing. I'd rate them an A+.”
