    A+ Lawn Care

    Anyone use their REGULAR LAWN PROGRAM that comes out 6 times to fertilize? Cost? Thoughts?

    Used them last year and they were great. We are moving to a rental while building a new house otherwise I'd use them again this year. Runs about 50 per application and I was able to get one treatment free when committing to the full series. Also had them aerate.

    Re: A+ Lawn Care

    I have used them for a year now and have no complaints. Cost is going to depend on the size of your yard. I have about 7,000 sq ft of grass and I believe I'm paying between $250 and $275 for the regular 6 applications.

    6 times to fertilize? Do you have to mow 3 times a week?

    Re: A+ Lawn Care

    $45.20 per application for my lawn and they do a great job. I tried 2 years doing it myself, but we have a lot of clay in our soil so it had gone to crap. I should have overseeded it last year but didnt so I have spots where grass is missing, but the grass is the best it has been in 3 years since I decided to go with them.

    Mine looks similar. It was in really bad shape when we bought our house almost 3 years ago. I've tried to revive it myself over the past few summers with little luck. I'm thinking about going with someone like A+ for a year just to get it in good shape, then back off and maintain myself.

    Your neighbor's looks good. Maybe you should hire him!


    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that. ~ George Carlin

    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life:
    The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves Orcs. ~ John Rogers

    Re: A+ Lawn Care

    Although it ended up looking fine last year so maybe I'll just leave it alone.




    BTW-My neighbor uses A+

    Looks like mine. Last summer was a killer on lawns with the heat and lack of rain. I would suggest them, they would get your grass (that you have) going strong. From there you can overseed and aerate in the fall.

    Re: A+ Lawn Care

    We used them last year. They did a good job and their rates are good. We compared them to the other big lawn companies in the area and they were one of the lowest.

    Re: A+ Lawn Care

    My front yard looks ok, my back yard is starting to get full of crabgrass and clover. We're probably going to look into lawn care as well.

    something will grow eventually. my take on lawns is that is a place for dogs to poop.

    Re: A+ Lawn Care

    Impatience and lawn care do not mix. Few lawns look good in March in Iowa.

    Feeding a lawn 6 times a year? Bad idea.
