Default Lawn Fertilization Companies

I am in the process of renewing my lawn and pest service at my home. I have met with four companies and am looking for information on who is best to go with. Not always is the cheapest or most expensive the best. The companies are Falcon Lawn and Pest, Service Smart, Superior Services and Bates. All replies would be most appreciated. Thank you

I've been extremely happy with Deans for lawn, pest and termites. My neighbors say I have the best lawn on the block.

I have used Superior Services for almost 2 years and have been very satisfied.

I vote for Heron Lawn & Pest Control. I have lived here 7.5 years and been through them all. Our lawn is one of the best in the area.

I've never heard of Falcon Lawn.
I've used both Bates and Stellar/Service Smart and found them both to be satisfactory.

Dean's is the way to go. Good techs and responsive customer service. No answering machine, they will always pick up the phone. My lawn looks terrific !

We switched from Deans to Fertigator. Half the price. Smaller company. Good results so far 3 months. Unfortunately, unhappy with Deans. They let weeds grow 2 feet high in my shrub beds by the front entry. I couldn't stand to see all the weeds growing every time I came and went.

Fertigator uses the same methods as the area golf courses. They add fertigation and vertislicing to the other basic methods of lawn treatment.
I don't know of any other company offering these 2 things.

Started with Massey.... good response, Lawn was always poor looking, Pest Control Good!....Switched to Deans... Good Responses, Good with Pests, Lawn Is Much, Much Better.

Note: With Massey must pay year in advance...With Deans...Only pay every two months or when services are applied.

Been here two years and think we are set!

Just saying.................
