We have fertigator as well as our neighbors and all our lawns are beautiful. I like the fact that they use organic
pesticides.

I usually go to the Better Business Bureau first thing when dealing with a new company and check them out. In this case, Fertigator is rated an "F" by the BBB. I've never used them so I can't say anything other than to pass on the BBB rating. You can check any company yourself by going to:
http://centralflorida.bbb.org/Find-Business-Reviews/
and typing in the business name and state (you don't need to type any more than that, it will work).

Used them, had a section of the lawn with issues, and could never even get them to look at it much less fix it. Fired them and had them remove equipment.

Hired Massey and they were fine for a while until another section of lawn died. They at least came and looked, but blamed it on frost even though no other lawn near me had issues. And no I was not the lowest or highest spot around. So just fired them as well. Going to do it myself until someone provides service that meets the needs of a homeowner. Problem turned out to be cinch bugs and when treated for that no more problems. And neither company would take ownership, just deny it was a problem they were responsible for.

I would personally run not walk away from this company. The have a decent product that works for maybe six months. Then that's it. I had more weeds with Ferigator than any other lawn service I used.

I terminated the contract after a year and they could not refund my money in full. I received $100 increments over a six month period with the last payment from them late by one month.

The company is hurting financially and rumor has it that they are going to file for bankruptsy. I signed on with them because half a dozen friends and/or neighbors talked me into it. I was the last of the group to terminate the contract because of the weeds and other problems with my lawn

That's my own personal experience with them. I can't recommend them to anyone

I have FertiGator for about 4 years now and I am happy. I had problems with the lawn and they came down right away and fixed it. Even replaced some of the dead lawn.

Read your original post I opened this site with a wary finger. We just signed up with them last month based on 2 of our neighbors using them and being thrilled with the results. Of course we had "Once a Year" last year based on a recommendation and we earned the title of "worst lawn on the block".

First off, I'm wondering if chemicals via irrigation do any harm to the system, and secondly, has anyone outright purchased this system (or any other irrigation fertilizer system ) on a DIY basis?
