    Hi all, I am new here and am a member from plowsite.com. I am not a landscaper but thought you guys might help. I want to find a company to treat my lawn for the season. I had a company called Tru green chemlawn. I was paying $65.00 a treatment and 96.00 for grub control. I have not been happy with them as my lawn get lots of crabgrass each year and the tell me all kinds of excuses why it happened. So the lawn looks like s*#t by summer. All I have got prices of $150.00 each treatment. I have used landscapers in the past to treat my lawn and was not happy with the out come. Any suggestion? Thank you for any help.

    Tear it all out and put mulch in, making a whole yard of landscaped items, and then just put down Preen or Treflan, or Snapshot once every 5-6 weeks.

    if you cant find someone in your area to do it right do it yourself! buy a quality fert with pre-m for the 1st application, spot treat any broadleaf you get in the spring, make another application in June with a summer fert w/ slow release, do 2 applications in the fall. Sept. and Nov. with high N & K also spray for weeds in the fall. and remember one of the most important factors in having a nice looking lawn is mowing height!
