The lawn care technician was very pleasant and helpful with turfgrass information. He would fertilize the lawn four times a year and aerate in the Fall. The cost was similar to other lawn care services -- $35 per chemical application and $64 to aerate. They gave a discount if I paid the annual bill in full. It would be less expensive to fertilize the grass yourself, so I wouldn't recommend them to everyone. It's nice if you are elderly, don't have the equipment or just don't have the time. My lawn looks great and the neighbors are jealous of my weed-free grass.
