Lawn service

Excellant service and staff. First year with Turf King and the results are amazing. After last summer's drought (and trying to save on my water bill), my grass was almost lost. Honest and straightforward about the use of non pesticide use. As stated, it takes time but the results are forthcoming . I've upgraded my program because of the of the integrity and results of Turf King. It's great talking with the knowledgeable staff.

Lawn service

We have one of the nicest lawns in the neighbourhood thanks to Turf King! After the first treatment, the difference was remarkable. Our lawn is thicker, greener and more lush with fewer weeds. It's actually nice to walk on it with bare feet for the first time in a really long time. Our second treatment didn't give the same results for the weeds and after a quick email they were back and reapplied. They replied and acted very quickly...the service has been excellent. We recommend Turf King to everyone.

reclaiming a damaged lawn

My lawn was neglected by a previous owner. In spite of no longer being able to use herbicides the lawn is doing fairly well. I would remind clients to be patient as it certainly takes longer to see any changes. I have used Turf King for 8 years now.

Thanks so much for your positive review, for your continued patronage of Turf King and for your gentle reminder that the organic products do not work as quickly as the banned products. Weeds are not as easy to deal with as they used to be. Keeping your lawn healthy by regular fertilization and seeding as required can be very helpful in maintaining a great lawn. Thanks again.

Excellent to work with!

Turf Kings has done an excellent job with our lawn so far. It was extremely damaged due to neglect from previous owners and we were pretty certain we would need to re-sod the whole thing. I am so glad we gave it a chance because after only 2 treatments, it's looking so much better than it was. Turf Kings has restored our lawn which has greatly improved the aesthetic of our house. I would highly recommend them for any job big or small. They are a pleasure to work with!

Lawn Care Program

We’re going through our second year of lawn care with Turf King, and couldn’t be more pleased with the service and results we’ve seen!

Last year, we subscribed to their lawn care package which includes core aeration/over-seeding/cinch bug treatment/fertilizing/and spot weed treatment to repair our cinch bug ravaged lawn. Previous to this, I can’t even describe how hopeless our yard was from all the cinch bug damage; it was entirely brown -- a matted tangle of near-straw. Although I was just about convinced that re-sodding would be the only solution, my husband convinced me that it would be a lot more cost-effective to at least try a professional lawn care program. I’m positively amazed at how Turf King turned our lawn around! Their care and attention made a WORLD of difference, so we renewed the package again this year. (Good thing too, because due to a car fire in our neighbour’s driveway, the big cedar on the front lawn was heavily damaged and needed to be removed, leaving a huge empty circle of dirt needing more seeding!)

On top of all this, the customer service experience has been outstanding! They have been very knowledgeable with the questions I have asked along the way, and even with my more complicated issues: they’ve dug right into researching on my behalf and providing me with more information and links to articles, etc., and helping in every way they could with a shrub infestation we encountered. They are very accessible and quick to reply by email, Facebook, and phone, and in general they have consistently gone above and beyond to ensure that we are satisfied and that our lawn is a successful reflection of their great service!

I could not ask for better service. Thank you Turf King
I signed up as a customer since spring 2012 after seeing the yellow Turf King trucks in my area. I am very happy with the quality of their service, and I cannot comment enough about how great the customer service is. I have recommended Turf King to my friends.

Lawn care program

We switched to Turf King a couple of years ago, seeking a more personalized approach and better service than we were getting from our previous company. We've been very pleased with Turf King. The owner, Gerry, is extremely knowledgeable; he has provided honest and helpful answers to all our questions. Andy, the technician who comes out to do the work on our property, is similarly helpful and pleasant. He has provided specific feedback and advice whenever required. Any time we've had a concern (e.g. possible insect infestation), the response has been quick and appropriate. We are very happy that we chose this company and would recommend them highly.

Lawn care

We had a one year subscription with them. They came to do seeding, aeration, weeding and fertilizing. The owner was very easy to deal with and they came on their own and left a notice on the lawn and door to inform us that they were here. Our lawn is new and so it's going to take a bit of work, but they've started the work for us and now we just have to maintain it. Prices were also very reasonable compared to other lawn care companies in the area.

KEEPING OUR GRASS GREEN AND HEALTHY

Turf King is truly THE KING OF GREEN. This excellent company has been keeping our grass green and healthy for numerous years. They do NOT use aggressive and annoyingly-so call center approaches which is highly appreciated. This AMAZING company offers personalized customer service that is always filled with friendly, expert advice. Our lawn ecolgogist, Andy, is most welcoming and filled with valuable information which is very helpful! Andy is very much appreciated and trusted by us.

Over the years, Turf King has provided our lawn with a customized program to suit our needs. Every spring we request, to have our lawn fertilized and aerated by Turf King. These are just some of the many excellent services which we select, from this amazing company.

With each lawn service rendered, there is a detailed report, placed into our mail box which indicates specifically which service was performed; applicable instructions are outlined, on demand, if necessary. This is like getting a 'report card' for our lawn which evaluates the shape of our grass with lots of valuable feedback and advice. Also within this 'report' there is an evaluation concerning the colour of our lawn which is: currently GREEN, the density of it, is currently THICK and the stautus of weeds is indicated as FEW. TURF KING provides valuable diagnostic feedback to make us aware of any conerns that can NATURALLY crop up with our lawn such as Broadleaf Weeds. Once the feedback is given to us, we are aware of anything that may need tending to with regards to our lawn, and then we call the company to schedule the applicable services,which gets to the heart of the matter. Grass is part of NATURE and TURF KING is not only the KING OF GREEN but they sure know leaps and bounds about how MOTHER NATURE and GRASS go hand in hand. They know about 'bugs and grubs' and to prevent them or to get rid of them. They have a wealth of knowledge and have answered many of my lawn questions, over the years.

Turf King provides a very informative and enjoyable newsletter called TURF NOTES which offers a wealth of information about grass tips and gardening tips. I love this newsletter; I learn so much from it! Gerry personalizes the newsletter which is printed in GREEN text and throughout the grass season, he tells his customers, little stories about his family. Being part of TURF KING, is like being part of one big happy family with all the same goals in mind; keeping one's grass healthy and looking its best, year after year! It is such a warm hearted newsletter with all around reading that is truly one that I lookk forward to receiving; HIGHLY EDUCATIONAL. Over the years, through these newsletters, I have learned so many grass and gardening tips, including the benefits of Aeration, information about the new natural treatments that Turf King offers to keep one's grass healthy and beyond!

In TURF KING'S most recent newsletter there is advice which reads: A few weeds won't detract from the beauty of a healthy , thick green lawn. This is so true...we have a few weeds and our lawn is certainly beautiful (WE HAVE A GORGEOUS LAWN) and it is remarkably healthy, healthy, healthy! A healthy lawn is indeed a green lawn. Our lawn is a 'green carpet' of beauty, thanks to Turf King.

This professional company with its intelligent knowledge, ALWAYS pampers our lawn with tender, loving care and we have one of the nicest lawns in the neighbourhood! Yes, I am bragging about our lawn because many neighbours have commented on how great it looks and I always reply, THIS IS BECAUSE OF TURF KING! Most of all, my husband and I love our lawn...it is a TURF KING creation!

Our GREEN CARPET of health and beauty.... THANKS-THANKS-THANKS TO TURF KING... welcomes song birds and families of playful squirrels, which I love to watch in our outdoor world!

Turf King ALWAYS welcomes feedback through e-mail communication, telephone communication or written communication. They value customer feedback and suggestions. Turf King is a very open minded company, which really aims to provide EXCELLENT customer satisfaction, which they constantly do for us.

TURF KING is a company that we will always be loyal to!
TURF KING truly is THE KING OF GREEN and I am sure that they have connections with MOTHER NATURE!!!!!

I could go on and on about TURF KING because the proof is in the pudding, their actions speak loudly by all that they have done for our lawn and all that they continue to do for our lawn. WOW!

When we moved into our house, six years ago, our lawn was a sad state but TURF KING changed that for us, QUICKLY AND EFFECTIVELY!

THANK YOU TURF KING FOR BEING SUCH A COMPETENT COMPANY, WHOM WE APPRECIATE LOTS AND LOTS.
