I have had Weed Man fertilize and do weed control on my front lawn for 5 years now and they do an adequate job. I ask for a minimum job each year because I water the grass very little in the summer and it goes brown. Up until 2 years ago I was happy with them but in the last 2 years they have started calling me many times during the season to add different services, like aerating, extra fertilizer, extra weed control. They become downright irritating with their constant calls even though I keep telling them NO. I finally got them to stop calling last year by asking the person how many times I had to tell them NO before they stopped calling. I continue to use them because they do a good job with the lawn.
Another problem last year was the lawn was very burned out in July and they insisted on Fertilizing it anyway. The Fertilizer burned what grass there was as I had told them it would. I had to resod part of the lawn this spring because of it. This year I will not fall prey to their "This is the last week for your summer fertilization and if you don't have it done, you will lose the money you paid". If they insist, I will cancel their services.
