weed lawn care

I have very bad experience with this company, I have paid them advance almost two months before they conduct first visit to treat the WEED at my back and front yard. Their technician visit my lawn 03 times only with very bad job performance the weeds everywhere at the back and front yard.

I had contact them to find out what is going on they told me they fired the technician but I didn’t get any replacement or follow with them, later on I sent email to the company owner Mr. Kevin on July 25 2018 asking to refund my money and I didn’t get any response from him or his customer service, by the way I don’t think they good customer service.
I had phoned this company 4 times and the last time the owner promised that he will refund my money and until this date 30 Aug 2018 I didn’t get back nothing.
Finally it was bad experience with unprofessional people and I don’t recommend this company at all to my family or friends.

Terrible Experience

Got my yard landscaped in the summer of 2017 which included new soil and sod. Hired Weed-A-Way that Fall and for the entire season of 2018. Was promised to get notifications 1-day in advance of visit, never happened. Was promised that any weeds on the lawn would be taken care of, there are weeds all over my lawn. Bald spots along the edges of my grass, no over-seeding even though my package displayed that over-seeding would be included. Yellow patches everywhere and was told that it’s because the grass in my backyard is competing with the tree for water. Doesn’t explain much for the front of my house as we don’t have trees in the front. Boulavard is filled with Crab Grass. Was told by a representative Morgan that it would all be taken care of. Looks horrible. Might I add that Morgan felt the right to yell at me in my last call to Weed-A-Way.
Representative Nisha promised to book a visit in for 6-weeks in a row. That lead to me calling and speaking with her 6 times and each time she promised that someone would be out the next week. Never happened.
To top it all off, the residual amount they sent me after I told them that I want to cancel services for the remainder of the season, was $70 short of what I was supposed to get.
I wouldn’t recommend this company to anyone. You’re better off paying a little more and recieving a reliable service. I paid them to ruin my lawn.

I was impressed by this company! I sent them pictures of my yard and right after an hour I got a quote. I love that I got a fast response from them with reasonable price quote. Just a few days they came and I was amazed how our front yard turned out exactly what I wanted for it to happen. They were reliable and dependable company. Surely I will recommend them to all our friends and family.

Lawn Care

We had Weed A Way to take care of our Lawn in our backyard. As busy person, most of the times I cannot maintain my own lawn, that’s why I hired them. Their services were awesome every other week they go to our house to do the work we were great about their work done. From time to time they check our lawn and see to it that everything was done correctly. Thank you so much Weed A Way for your wonderful services to us. I highly recommend this company for your lawn maintenance.

Lawn Maintenance

Our lawn had been left a couple of weeks without any maintenance and now the weeds were almost taller than us. We called Weed A Way and they have been great in responding to our needs. They came the next morning and started cutting the weeds right away. Just after a few hours our lawn had been back again to its wonderful look. Thank you so much Weed A Way for the help.

Download our Lawn Care Tips to stay on top of lawn maintenance.

Now there’s a way to stop thinking "The grass is greener on the other side"! Weed-A-Way’s premium lawn care products and services will make your dream lawn a stunning reality. Here’s how:

*As industry leaders and certified IPM (Integrated Pest Management) specialists, our lawn care programs utilize the most advanced turf management practices and products.

*Our lawn amendment treatments as well as lawn care programs promote a vibrant landscape.

*Depending upon weather conditions, we use a combination of Liquid and Granular fertilizers. Of course, if you prefer Granular, just let us know.

*We guarantee results with our fertilizer and weed control programs. If after an application stubborn weed persists we'll come back and re-spray at no charge.

Our services consist of the following programs and additional services:

*Basic (Fertilizer & Weed Control) Lawn Care Program

*Intermediate Organic Lawn Care Program

*Advanced Lawn Care Program

*Weed Control: FIESTA: A highly-recommended timely weed control which is composed of iron and is odourless, Fiesta kills the weeds but does not harm the lawn. It is applied by our highly qualified technicians throughout your season long program. Weeds compete with grass and plants for nutrients, water and sunlight. Broadleaf weeds are usually the greatest threat. If not dealt with quickly, they can destroy all your hard work. Effective weed control solutions from Weed-A-Way lawn services will ensure a healthy and vibrant lawn. We have extensive experience in dealing with various types of weeds like dandelion, broadleaf plantain, etc., and know how to deal with each one.

*Core Aeration: The secret to a lush, green lawn is core aeration. Soil compacts over time and especially with traffic. Core aeration allows nutrients, water and oxygen to reach grass roots more easily. However, lawn aeration is more than just punching holes in the ground. You must have the proper equipment and be willing to set aside a couple of hours for aeration. It’s also important to know when your garden needs core aeration. Weed-A-Way’s lawn services take the trial and error out of grass treatments. We make sure that the grass is always green on your side of the fence.

*Grub Treatment: Typically, grubs attack grass roots. A damaged root system results in a poor quality lawn with dirty, yellowish brown patches. Timely grub treatment from Weed-A-Way will avoid the huge expense of replacing your lawn as well as eliminate the threat of skunks and raccoons that feed on them. By using natural grub treatments like nematodes (naturally occurring microscopic worms) to destroy them and alfalfa treatments to stimulate roots, increase growth and drought resistance, our efficient lawn services will ensure a strong and healthy turf.

*Crab Grass Control: Crabgrass forms thick clumps of light green leaves that are highly competitive with turf grasses. It turns brownish red in mid to late summer. Timely treatments are the most effective way to deal with crabgrass. Since this lawn problem germinates from seeds in spring it’s extremely important to apply the crabgrass control treatment before germination takes place.

*Lime Treatment: In order to have healthy soil that supports grass growth, it is important to maintain the appropriate pH (acidity) balance. Using lime treatment is often the best solution. Although some lawn experts recommend lime treatment before starting a lawn, applications on mature turf also have several benefits. However, in order for your lime treatment to be effective, you must have knowledge of your soil’s pH levels. Our experienced lawn services will analyze a soil sample before applying lime treatment to your grass. We make sure we get it done right.

*Surface Insect Control: Chinch bugs, sod webworms, cutworms and other surface insects usually strike in the summer. They are so small and usually buried in the lawn thatch; that’s why it so hard to spot them. Very often insect ridden grass looks dry and you might think it simply needs watering. Since your lawn is already stressed with the heat, drought-like conditions, weeds and traffic, the damage is greater. Weed-A-Way surface insect treatment means identifying your problems quickly and correctly, and then taking the appropriate control measures to eliminate the pests.

*Overseeding and Core Aeration: Core aeration makes your overseeding efforts worthwhile. By unplugging the soil in a methodical way, you can remove thatch and reduce soil compaction as well as increase success of weed, surface insect and lime treatments. But a significant benefit of core aeration with regard to overseeding is that it allows the nutrients to reach the seeds and roots faster. Our expert lawn services can handle your overseeding and core aeration requirements to ensure proper effectiveness.
