“I like the friendliness and I also like the fact that the attendant the very last time, stopped and picked up some trash in front yard, I mean, in the street in front of our house that the garbage man inadvertently overlooked, and I thanked the Greenup attendant. I thought that was beyond the call of duty because he was not even aware that I saw him do it. We've been customers for about four years since we've moved here and we're very pleased. We're very pleased with all of them.”

“We've always had a positive experience with Greenup. The guys are here when they say they're going to be and they seem to be knowledgeable. So, any questions I have about my yard or the shrubs, they always have good advice for me. They fertilize on a quarterly basis for our yard through the year, and they also fertilize our shrubs. I'm giving them an A. I never got A's, but I'm going to give them an A. We do recommend them.”

Review by
01/31/2018

“They seem very efficient. I don't have to follow-up with them. They've treated my law. When I've had issues with my lawn, they've notified of me. They've even come back out after we had all the rain for a long time and I was having issues with my lawn. They did a follow-up ten days later, doing it on their own. I didn't have to ask them or anything. I'd say A. I would recommend them.”

Review by
01/31/2018

“They always call the day before if they can't. If for some reason I can't have the gate open or whatever because of the dogs, they have no problem working around me. They're very flexible. They've basically just fertilized the yard. I've been using them for probably a year plus. They deserve an A+. They never leave a mess behind.”

Review by
01/31/2018

“They come regularly. It’s easy to pay them. If you call them, they'll answer all your questions. They're really easy to deal with. This used to be my parent’s house and I bought it from them and they've done the yard here for years and it always looks great. I’d give them an A+. I like working with them.”

Review by
01/31/2018

“I've been using them for years. They've always been prompt and courteous and always give good information on anything they see. If there's a problem with a lawn, memos to look out for certain things like grubs and stuff like that. I'd give them an A+.”

Review by
01/31/2018

“They come regularly. Their price is OK. They pretty much do yard, plant and grass fertilization, stuff like that. I'd say they're a good B. I haven't done much with customer service. Their punctuality is good. They don't make any messes.”

Review by
01/31/2018

“They ride up when they're supposed to. Their chemicals seem to be helping my lawn stay healthy, and couldn't ask for more. I've been using them for over a year now. They deserve an A.”

Review by

“They used to service my house. I liked the service and everything, all that stuff's perfect. They help out with growing the grass, pest control, stuff like that. I'd give them an A.”

Review by

“They just always do what they're supposed to do. They do fertilization for my lawn. They always give me a call to let me know ahead of time if they're coming out. They deserve an A.”

Review by

“They just let me know in a timely manner when they were coming out and did what needed to be done. They would just treat the yard I guess, fertilization. They deserve an A+.”

“We just got more service arranged. They're thorough, they're on time and I've got the best looking yard in the neighborhood. A, all the way. I have recommended them.”

“I actually chose them over other competitors. When I moved, I used another company, but Greenup  does a lot better service with better results.”

Review by
09/25/2016

“I didn't see much improvement. Probably a C+ or a B. Quality of work was fine. They came when they said they would.”

Review by
09/25/2016

“Probably a B. Their billing is unclear. I know that I'm left an invoice, but there's been some mix-up’s as to which services they’re providing. They come numbered one to five, and the last one I got was clearly numbered; however, the first three I got, I didn't know if I’d paid them before or not. I was concerned about whether or not I had already paid the bill.”

Review by
09/25/2016

“I'm not really happy with my services. Because I have a lot of weeds in my yard and to say that I get my yard treated every couple of months I mean I'm not happy with the amount of weeds I have. With the services per say I would say more like a C, or C- now, but the people when they call, the services the friendliness of the people who call to let me know that they're coming out, I'd say that's probably more like A.”

Review by
09/25/2016

“It was OK. They didn't seem to know as much as they advertised that they knew. And their interactions on checking with the customer are kind of hand fisted, like calling when I asked them not to and stuff like so on. It was OK. It wasn't great, it wasn't bad I just have other options. C-. I never knew what they were doing. Their punctuality was OK, they came when they said they were going to come.”

Review by
07/29/2015

“I mean their customer service is very good and friendly. They come and do what they say they're going to do in a timely basis and from a pricing standpoint they seem to be very competitive. I think I chose them just because they were local and I didn't like the results I was getting from my previous lawn company. I'd probably give them a B+. I would recommend them to friends.”

Review by
07/29/2015

“So far, so good. They come and do their job, and it seems to work. They just do lawn treatments for me. It was good at the beginning, but because we've had so much dry, hot weather, everything is beginning to turn a bit brown. Greenup came and sprayed, but it's just one of those things that happens here, and I have no complaints about them. They're good. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
07/29/2015

“I like that my yard is green. I went out of town, so I requested that they not put something on the door this time and they were able to do that—kind of customized how they communicated with me. They've done everything they said they were going to do so far. I agreed to do the year-long service and I think maybe four of the treatments have happened so far; they've been very honest with everything and they’ve done what they said they were going to do, so I definitely enjoy it. I'd give them an A+.”

Review by
07/29/2015

“My wife might comment on some weeds but they seemed to go away and we had a second or third visit to get some of the weeds. They guaranteed the weeds are gone and that's why I had them out to begin with and they had to come back a second and a third time and I think they got most of the weeds now but I don't, I'm not sure of that. I'd give them a B or a B+. Something like that. They seemed very helpful and they were interested in trying to solve our problem.”

Review by
07/29/2015

“I like them. They come out and they do exactly what they say they're going to do. If you have a question, the individual that's doing your yard at the time will answer your questions, which is great. They spray my yard for lawn fertilizer and bug killer. We chose them because Greenup was just one that we happened to know. We looked them up and the price appeared to be pretty good, so we decided to go with Greenup. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
07/29/2015

“I was pleased with the treatments that they gave my lawn. After a couple of treatments, my lawn looked better than when I do it myself. I had gotten a brochure from them and I talked to them before; this time it was in my budget, so I decided to give them a try. I'll use them again. It's just that we have dry weather right now and if I can't get out to water my yard I'm going to have to suspend the services. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
07/29/2015

“They were consistent. I didn't have to call and say, ‘Well what happened to you this week,’ or ‘When you coming back;’ it was like clockwork. They were right on target; there was a terrible drought before they came, but the product they used had my grass feeling like carpet. It just really made my grass thick and everybody's like, 'Oh my god. Your grass is so thick.' I've got my own company, so customer service is everything, and when I spoke to them on the phone, they were very nice and helpful. They weren't short with me and I hate to call somebody and, 'We don't do this, and we can't do that.' Then it's like, 'OK, goodbye.' But they were very, ‘Yes we can come out there’ and ‘yes we'll be glad to do this and that.’ They were very nice. When I get financially straightened out, I'll go back to them again and get back on my regimen. I would definitely give them an A.”

Review by
07/29/2015

“As a matter of fact, we have some palms that look like they're dying. They're coming tomorrow to check them out. Other than that, it's positive but I can't really give them a glowing report until we figure out what happened to those palms. But they are coming to check tomorrow to see what's happened to them. I've been using them, just like three services so far at least. We're paying every time they come out instead of signing up with a contract. All through the spring we had tons and tons of rain so I would say that probably didn't hurt that our grass turned green but we've been dry for about a month now. I mean I wouldn't say anything spectacular. Like I said, everybody's yard was green because of all the rain and now we have palms that are turning yellow and the leaves are dying. So far, the jury's out. I'll say a C right now.”

Review by
07/29/2015

“My grass is messed up but I will be sending another payment this weekend but I don't know what's happening with the grass though. The last guy was good and my grass started looking real good and then all of a sudden now, it's dying. You know (inaudible) this guy was telling me at first how good my grass is going to look and now it's not looking like that. I don't know if it's because they're not coming out and doing the treatments or what. I chose them because when they say green up, I thought my grass was going to be real pretty and green. (inaudible). That's the reason we chose you over the rest of them and it was like a family type so I'm like ok, we'll try them this year and he's saying how good he could make our yard look but it didn't. I guess right now it's mediocre.”

Review by
07/29/2015

“So far, so good. They come on time when scheduled and they actually do the entire yard and I actually work from home and they don't know that. So I'm actually in the house watching them work, and they actually take care of the entire yard, where I've seen a few other companies actually come and do one patch and keep on going, you know what I mean. Well I had tried a couple and I really wasn't satisfied with their services. I'd give Greenup a B. I would recommend them to friends. As a matter of fact, my neighbor actually just signed up when he saw them out there doing my yard a couple weeks ago.”

Review by
07/29/2015

“They just do lawn treatments, and my grass looks great. My lawn people recommended them to me. I would give them an A.”

Review by
07/29/2015

“It was easy—easy to set it up, and easy to maintain it. They did lawn treatments. I chose them because they were better known. I'll give them an A.”

Review by
07/29/2015

“I like the communication, the price, and they're thorough with their work. They just did lawn treatments. I would say they get an A+.”

Review by
07/29/2015

“I have no complaints. They were prompt, and as far as I can tell, they did a good job—they kept my yard alive. They did yard treatments. I'd say they’re an A.”

Review by
07/29/2015

“They show up. The treatments are working out. I have not interacted with the people who did the lawn treatments. I'd give them a B. I would recommend them to friends.”

Review by
07/29/2015

“I like that my yard looks better. I chose Greenup based on a neighbor's recommendation, and I would give them an A. I like that they just leave the flyer in my door—it tells me what to do.”

Review by
07/29/2015

“They come when they say they're coming. Well the lawn's green right now. Can't argue with that. I don't know why I chose them, convenience I guess. I'd give them a B. I would recommend them to friends.”

Review by
07/29/2015

“They did everything they said they were going to do, and it has affected my lawn in a significant fashion. I think they said the company was veteran owned, and that caught my attention. They’re an A.”

Review by
07/29/2015

“My yard looks great, so I haven't had any problems with them. I used Greenup a long time ago when we had another house, and I liked their service, so we went back to them. I'd give them an A+.”

Review by
07/29/2015

“Pretty much whatever they told me was going to happen, happened. They came out on time and did my grass and everything was fine, and my shrubs. I'm satisfied with what they did. I would give them a B+, and I am going to probably use them again.”

Review by
07/29/2015

“They're still pretty new for me—I've only had two applications from them, and I don't notice a difference so far. One reason I chose them was they were the only one that called me back. I'd probably give them an A-.”

Review by
07/29/2015

“I liked their rates and they seem to be on time. They do just the lawn. They just worked with me on getting out here when I needed them to, and their rates seemed to be more competitive. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
07/29/2015

“They do the job, it seems to work, and they're on time. Right now, the lawn's a little dry, but that's because of the weather—it has nothing to do with Greenup. They put a brochure on my door, and I checked them out and decided to try them. I would say they’re an A.”

Review by
07/29/2015

“I'd say it was average. Well to be honest with you, I can't tell a difference in my lawn. They do lawn treatments. Actually it came down them and another one and the thing that caught my eye the most is being a veteran myself, it was veteran owned. I would give them a C.”

Review by
07/29/2015

“They come and go, and I've never had any issues. The lawn seems to be getting better; it was in pretty poor shape when we bought the house. I've been doing a lot of landscaping work on it and I think what they've done has definitely helped. I'd give them an A+, without a doubt.”

Review by
07/29/2015

“They've done a good job so far, and I like that it's a smaller company. What they've done so far is treated our grass; we don't have the weeds anymore and the grass looks good. I chose them because they were a smaller company and they had competitive rates. I'd give them an A.”

Review by

Review by
09/22/2014

“They just keep stuff healthy. They do what they've been asked to do. They treat the lawn and the bushes. They're both a deep green color. They treat them with fertilizer and pesticide. I've noticed a change in my lawn. I would recommend them to a neighbor or a friend. I'd give them a B+.”

Review by
09/22/2014

“Greenup does a chemical fertilizer treatment for my lawn. They're prompt, they do what they say they're going to do, and they're good about leaving notices about what they will do to my lawn in the future. I've noticed a change in my lawn—it looks really healthy. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
09/22/2014

“Greenup does the yard maintenance, chemical spray, and stuff like that. They come on time, and they call us to tell us if they're not going to be on time. It's better than the other companies that we've used in the past, so that's nice. I would recommend them.”

Review by
09/22/2014

“They show up to do lawn treatments when they say they will, and the guy does a good job. They’ve been out two or three times, and my yard looks better. It takes the work off of me. It’s an A for Greenup.”

Review by
09/22/2014

“They apply a fertilizer treatment to the yard. It's painless, and I've noticed a significant difference—the yard looks a lot greener than the neighbors' yard. I would recommend them. I think they deserve an A.”

Review by
09/22/2014

“Greenup is always on time whenever they come, and they do a good job. They do the backyard, the front yard, and the basic maintenance for the grass. My lawn has improved for sure. I would definitely recommend them—A+.”

Review by
09/22/2014

“Basically, whatever services they were rendering didn’t do anything for my lawn. My lawn looked worse than any of the other lawns as far as I’m concerned and they didn’t have any services being done or performed on it. But for mine to look not as good was a little disheartening. They washed their hands and we’re done with them. I never received a response. The first time I called they came out. Somebody looked at the grass and said, ‘Well, we’re going to give you a dry treatment.’ I followed the instructions after the dry treatment and a month and a half later, still the results were not any better and that’s when I canceled the service. I never heard back from them after that. They did send me a bill and I wrote to them saying, ‘Why are you sending me a bill after I canceled the service?’ That was it. I'd give them a D.”

Review by
09/22/2014

“They're very reliable. They fertilize my lawn. If they tell you they're going to be at your place at a certain time, they're very punctual. They either come on time or they come early—I'm not really used to service providers like that. I think Greenup is really great about not trying to upsell you when they come over. They treat your lawn, and if they see a problem, they'll flag it or put it in the report, but I've never felt that I've been upsold on anything. I had a couple of issues with what I thought were ground worms. I asked them about it, and the technician said, ‘It's actually not that. You don't need to pay for that. What it is, actually, is that your dog is urinating in that spot constantly.’ He's really honest and forthright with his services. I would recommend them. I don't have any complaints with them, so I'll give them an A+.”

Review by
09/22/2014

“They're responsive to email and phone communications. I prefer email because it’s easiest for me, and I've found them to be responsive and able to provide the information that I need through email communication. I think they've also done a good job taking care of my yard, but most importantly, I appreciate the good communication that they have. They come out a couple times a year to put fertilizer down and help keep the lawn green. I think it's been working. Greenup deserves an A.”

Review by
09/22/2014

“This is my first year using Greenup. They’re always on time, they can do what I ask them to do, and they're very personable. They did a very good job. They did lawn treatments and aeration for me. I really wasn't having a problem with my yard—I just needed some upkeep on it. It looks good. It was nice to get the aeration. I couldn't find anybody to do that, so I was really happy that they did it for me. They've been very prompt and up-to-date with the recurring lawn treatment. I've been really pleased with them. They deserve an A+.”

Review by
09/22/2014

“They show up when they say they’re going to. They just take the weeds out and fertilize the yard. Actually, I haven't noticed a significant change in the appearance of my yard. I don't know if they come every six weeks or every quarter, I don't know. I would recommend them. The price is right. Their pricing is within reason. They deserve a B+.”

Review by
09/22/2014

“They're prompt and courteous, and they get the work done as requested. They've got a good business model going. They keep the lawn fertilized and green, and if we have any brown patches or any type of fungus or whatever on our shrubs or anything, they come out and fix it. It's taken care of very quickly. I'd give them an A+, for sure.”

Review by
09/15/2014

“They come out when we ask them. If we have an extra problem, I mean. So far, our yard seems to be looking better than it did last year. They just do the fertilizing and they also aerated it. They come out about every six weeks. I'm not sure I'd recommend them yet. We'll see. I'd probably give them a B+.”

Review by
09/15/2014

“Greenup has done work for me in the past. They seem very knowledgeable, and what they've been doing has made our lawn better. They come out to put fertilizer down on my lawn about every six weeks to two months, and I've noticed a change. I would recommend them to a neighbor or a friend. They get an A+.”

Review by
09/15/2014

“They're fine. I like them fertilizing my lawn so I don't have to. I've noticed a little bit of a difference since I started using them. I would recommend them to a neighbor or a friend. I haven't had any customer service, to tell you the truth. They come out once a quarter to do my lawn for me. I'd give them a B.”

Review by
09/15/2014

“They're very good at communicating, in terms of when services will be performed. I don't think they've really raised their prices too much over the years I've been working with them. They seem very knowledgeable and passionate about their trade. They come out to fertilize my lawn for me maybe once a quarter. I would recommend them to a neighbor or a friend. They deserve an A+.”

Review by
09/15/2014

“They're prompt, and they stick to the schedule. They come out to fertilize my lawn, and they send flyers when they come. They ask which services I want, but they’re not pushing it down my throat—I can choose to do things or not. I've noticed a change since I started using them. The lawn is green, and there are no brown patches or beetles—it's great. I'd recommend Greenup, and I’d give them an A+.”

“They're doing yard work for me. It's been a positive experience so far. They do what they say they're going to do, and that's all I know. I haven't used them very long. I've only been using them maybe about four months, and they've come out about four times. They do fertilizing work for my lawn. I have noticed a change. I would recommend them to a neighbor or a friend. I'd give them probably a B.”

“My yard looks green and nice, better than when I do it. But I can still see weeds, though. I can still see weeds, and sometimes, when they do the application, they didn't leave instructions, and I don't know if I have to water them or not. So, generally, it's good, but there are some areas that need improvement. They come out to fertilize my lawn. I would recommend them to a neighbor or a friend. I’d give them A+.”

“It's fine. I'm not totally convinced that the fertilizing really helps. I'm actually going to let go of my service now. Not because of this call, it's just I was looking at the yard and I was like, eh, I don't know it was worth what I was paying to have them come out however often, I think it was every eight weeks or so. I've been using them for a year. I did like them, I mean they were easy to use and stuff. I did several different things through them: fertilizing, and then fire ant control, and stuff like that. I'd give them a B.”

“I’m still evaluating to be honest. I’ve got some concerns. I started to give them a call to address it and couldn’t get through. I don’t think they're doing what they're supposed to do. Weeds are proliferating. There’s no evidence that they're being beat back. The fertilization of the plants and whatnot doesn’t appear to be doing any good. They're all yellow leaved and crappy looking. No, I wouldn’t exactly endorse them at this stage of the game. The jury is out as to whether they remain in place. I'd give them a C-.”
