Scotts LawnService
We have used Scotts Lawn Service for several years. Their overall service is acceptable, however, communication within the company to relay information from customers to the technician who will be performing the service is somewhat lacking. When we made calls ahead of time to be sure our requests were noted BEFORE the technician came out to service the lawn, we were told our account was noted but the technicians never seemed to have the information. Requests for supervisors to return our call were slow in being responded to. The employees at this company are friendly and the technicians are reasonably knowledgable about lawn issues, but improvement in their internal communication would go a long way in helping their image. I could recommend this company.

Metroplex Tree Experts
I built my house in Arlington a little more than ten years ago. Craig came out to my home and walked around with me, taking the time to discuss my concerns and goals. It was a pleasure to talk with him, as he is an arborist and just as enthusiastic about trees as I am.His crew worked five hours straight, doing a terrific job, AND cleaning up as they went. There was no mess or evidence that I had four trees cut down, and four large trees trimmed.I highly recommend this company! Metroplex Tree Experts are prompt, courteous, professional and reasonably priced. I will be using them again in the future.Within one hour after they were finished, two of my neighbors stopped and told me how nice my yard looked.

Arlington Tree Pros
This company did a great job on my trees. Our property has lots of trees and we had never gotten them all trimmed before. I found Arlington Tree Pros online, I called them and the next day somebody came out to give me a quote. Their quote sounded very reasonable (even lower than I had anticipated) and they came out with their crew later that week to complete the job. They were fast and cleaned up all of the limbs - they even cut the larger ones into firewood for me and stacked it. Couldn't recommend this company enough.

Victor and his crew gave me a great quote and installed my fence within 2 days- the crew was very professional and quick in doing their job- the debris was picked up and taken away - and my new fence is looking great with the stain they used- I highly recommend this company to all homeowners-

Tips & Advices
Irrigation system advantages:
  • Lowers water bill and maintenance time with scheduled watering
  • Evenly distributes water
Irrigation system disadvantages:
  • Professionally installed systems cost between $3,000-$4,000 for a quarter-acre lot.
  • Some do-it-yourself systems cost up to $1,500 but are difficult to install.
  • You may need to call a professional electrician and plumber, adding $300-$600 to your project.
Some plants can stand up to the cold weather, like kale or pansies. These can be planted in the autumn or early winter. Other plants need to wait until the soil is warm and ready. Plant perennial flowers in mid-autumn or mid-spring. If you're planting from seed or sprout, you can generally find information about planting conditions on the package.
Why get artificial grass?
  • Cuts down on lawn maintenance
  • It's environmentally friendly since there‚Äôs no need to water.
  • Artificial grasses may be more attractive than real grass in drought-stricken areas.
Why stick to the real deal?
  • Artificial grass has a high upfront cost - $15 to $20 per square foot.
  • It can be difficult to install.
  • Inexpensive options might look unnatural.
  • It gets hot in the sun.
First, determine which pests you're dealing with. Mounds or tunnels indicate moles or voles. Apply castor oil to your lawn; they'll find another digging spot. Determine which bugs you have by pouring a bucket of soapy water onto the lawn. The bugs will surface so you can identify them. Milky spore and nematodes keep grubs and other bugs at bay. Insecticidal soap also works. The best way to prevent pests is with good yard maintenance. Certain bugs prefer overwatered lawns or yards with thatches. Regular mowing, watering, and dethatching discourage pests from moving in.
Fertilizer isn't always necessary, but it can keep your lawn looking lush and healthy. Use fertilizer with slow release nitrogen so it doesn't encourage weeds to grow. Keep in mind that overfertilizing can spur weed growth. However, under-fertilizing can result in weak grass, which gives weeds more space to take root.
