We have had Scotts Lawn Service for 4 years (352-347-2822). They leave a bill at your door (unless you pay yearly to get a 5% discount). The bill includes a report on the condition of your lawn. ALL of our neighbors have had lawn problems (St. Augustine grass) and their lawns are being treated by at least 3 different lawn services. Our lawn has NEVER had a problem and is in the best shape in the neighborhood. Scotts took care of the lawn for 3 years before we were able to move to TV, so they were doing a good job even without our being here to monitor them.

Also, we use Dean's Pest control (see ad). They use beagle dogs to sniff for termites inside your house before they determine to treat the property. There was a feature article about them in a pet magazine. We've never had bugs in the house or garage, except for the Love Bugs which are uncontrollable no matter where you are.

We use McKinney Landscape Service..352-259-0905....A man in his late 20's early 30s, owns his own business. He mows trims and blows for $55 a month (weekly in season every 2 weeks like now). We have a LARGE yard but he will do what you want. WE have used him since 9/06 with NO problems. He appears reliable...shows up on time.....and I am not there to supervise him. He sends me bills in the mail and I send him a check. I am satisfied with the work and check on it when I get down to FLorida...and the neighbors keep an eye out also.

With everyone that's giving their 2 cents worth - we ought to have a milllion dollar idea.

Here's my 2 cents. . . . I have Middleton for pests and fertilizer/weed control (includes bushes.
Just paid $790 for the year of bush & lawn care(fert&bush spraying)
They do the termite control for $90
and once a year bug treatment for $260. (includes a booster @ 6 mo).

Lawn cut and trim from A&C Exteriors for $50/mo no mater how often they have to cut and yes, lot size matters. I have a pie shape at end of culdesac (140 deep x 60 in front by 90 in back) but a corner would be more.

All services performing well

We use J&H for mowing and weeding; Scott's for lawn treatment and Dean's Pest control for the critters. Extremely pleased with all three.

We've had KB and Massey, which have been good, but thinking about switching to Dean's for both services.
