After making the mistake of giving permission to quote us for lawn care (they trot school kids out in Weed Man coats door to door with a clipboard, there have to be some laws against that), I was pestered by 3 different Weed Man employees for about 2 weeks until they started cutting their quotes down. Eventually I caved and said ok.
Their tech did a shoddy job of fertilizing the lawn, jogging the whole time trying to finish as quickly as possible. When it came time to treat the weeds, the tech basically skipped every other weed, especially the small ones. My guess is that it would ensure that would require further treatments. I don't know what sort of job they would have done if they knew that someone happened to be home both times, but someone was, and it wasn't worth any amount of money. Needless to say, our weeds remained and are living quite happily to this day. The Weed Man posed no threat to them, and their existence is proof of their lack-lustre service.
A few weeks ago they started pushing their new grub treatment, "alerting" me to the fact that my lawn had a grub problem (it doesn't) and that if I didn't get their treatment NOW, my lawn would be in shambles. The calls went on for a week and change. During one of their calls, the lady demanded she speak to my father. Immensely annoyed, I canceled all my services with them.
Probably the most irritating company I've had to deal with. I've told everyone I know to avoid them like the plague, and I hope that anyone reading this does the same.
