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.

Excellent Services

I had recently moved into a house that was beautiful, however the backyard was full of tall weeds and the grass were not trimmed well. I got in contact with this company through a friend that had used their services before and had nothing bad to say about them so i gave them a shot. I was pleasantly surprised by the communication, and work ethic from their team. They were quick and professional. My backyard was transformed just the way i had envisioned it. I will absolutely use Weed A Way again and recommend it to anyone.

Backyard weed removal

Thank you Weed A Way for turning our backyard into a tropical paradise! It was a pleasure to deal with them. They listened and prepared to offer suggestions on how they will remove the weeds in our backyard. Upon approval of the plan, the crew showed up on time every day. They were very professional and cleaned up every day after each work being done. We couldn't be happier with the result! The trees and shrubs look stunning now. It was a great work done by Weed A way Company.

Response time is poor but corrected again

June 25 - Review update - I did finally get a call and a quick visit to correct my concerns - a right step - so I am happy again with their response/raised the star rating

June 23 - This company killed by vegetable garden a few years ago - for some reason I decided them give them a chance again over the last couple of years - grass is nice and green after it fertilized - not many weeds - thank you - but the request I made to spray weed killer in the play area has been ignored this year - no response to my emails - not sure whats going on here - but they need to respond in a timely fashion - thats what good customer service is all about.

Never showed up.

I prepaid for 6 treatments. They failed to show up not once but twice on scheduled dates. Its already June and I haven't got any calls back from a manager or supervisor from the company. Would not recommend this company to anyone wanting reliable service.

Lawn Care

Great work with a fair price. They did my entire back yard in 2017 and it still looks good as the day they were finished! Would definitely recommend them to anyone.

Project inquiry

The person who contacted me today was absolutely rude, had no respect and does not know how to talk to customers. I was trying to understand if extra options could be added to the package and he simply said if I pay you the same will you come and do my lawn?

This is absolutely unacceptable behavior and will you please train your customer service agents to be respectful at a minimum?

Lawn Care

I've been a customer of Weed A Way for almost a year now. I struggled for years to find a great landscaper/gardener. I wanted my lawn to look manicured and beautiful but my previous landscapers never really achieved that. Weed A Way has given me the best house on my street!

Lawn Maintenance

When we bought our house, the backyard was a disaster full of waist-high weeds and a tiny square deck. Weed A Way transformed it into a serene oasis for us, gardening beds and trees. All was framed by a beautiful hand-made wooden fence, and accented by Japanese style screens, stonework, small boulders and shrubbery. Throughout the whole process, they were extremely easy to work with, and were eager to create custom woodwork to fit our preferences perfectly. Thanks to their vision and ability to create amazing spaces from nothing, we now love taking "staycations" in the backyard to de-stress rather than taking expensive trips.

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.
