Default New recommendations needed.

We are looking for recommendations for total lawn care as well as pest control vendors in The Villages. Have had a couple of quotes from Massey but they seem rather expensive.
We would like a reliable vendor we can be on a month to month contract. We are not interested in paying for services not rendered.

Thanks in advance for your advice and recommendations.

You can search this website and see lots of threads on this topic.


Most providers have good reviews and bad reviews.


I have used Fertigator for seven years. Very happy. There are about 10 of my neighbors using them as well.


BUT..............there are a few bad reviews for them (as with all providers).


Good Luck.

You may pay a little more for Massey but they will be there when scheduled!. I have been using them for three years and I am completely satisfied

My advice regarding pest control? Don't hire anyone! Wait and see if you really need a service.
Keep your little can of Raid under your kitchen sink and use it if necessary.
You will find a bug here or there, but this is Florida and that's common.

Don't jump the gun because everyone says you need that kind of service; you don't!

We have been using Deans since we moved here a year ago and they are thorough and reliable.

I have Deans for termite protection (For peace of mind we decided to NOT roll the dice on Termite prevention). Regular pest control I take care of with a garden sprayer and Amdro concentrate around the perimeter of the house. No bugs in 8 years. Zoysia green takes care of lawn pests with their regular treatment. It all seems to work, and all the eggs are not in one basket.
