As a general rule, these guys do good work. But their service days are erratic and the customer service is blunt and unfriendly. Just recently we had an instance where they skipped our maintenance for a week. I contacted the office about the issue and was basically told that I was lying. My wife called the following week only to be told that "some houses were missed due to a glitch in the system last week."The nexr service day they promised some "additional services" to make up for the missed service. Not only was no additional service provided, the cut and overall job was the worst they have ever done. Grass clippings were all over the deck in the back yard, the "special" trim of the bushes in the front was not done, and they must have brought the dullest blade in the shop to cut the grass. They really showed us. I had read in reviews that customer service was an issue with this group. So be forewarned. There is truth in that statement. But the price is good, as is the work some days -- when they show up as scheduled and don't have a "glitch in the system." I've made the decision to look elsewhere. One too many disappointments for me.

Hunter Sprinkler Repair LLC
You've heard the term, "we go way back". Well, that's the case with Ron Hunter. More than ten years ago he was a professional landscaper and irrigation expert. Ron and his team installed a beautiful lawn around our home and we were very impressed with his courteous professionalism. Today I got real frustrated with our sprinkler system which needed a complete overhaul. I found Ron's ad in Mint Mag and shortly thereafter he was hard at work on our system. We were extremely impressed with the knowledgeable way they repaired our system. In the decade that has passed since we last met, Hunter Sprinkler Repair has become a hi-tech team outfitted with time-saving specialty equipment for finding sprinkler valves and control units buried in the ground and a complete knowledge of new digital gear that has become the new normal in irrigation technology. With many years of experience behind him you won't do better than to call Ron to help you keep your sprinklers in excellent shape.

Beyond Pavers
Beyond Pavers did an awesome job. They paved over 700 square feet of my property for a price better than the other estimates I had received. The gentleman Tito, came by and gave us an estimate, but explained the whole process of how the job would be done. He also listened to how we wanted the design to go and then gave us a few of his ideas of his own as well. Well his idea was exactly what we actually wanted and didn't even know it. His crew showed up on time and worked through the hot sun and a bit of rain. We were very impressed. The job turned out beautifully. Finding a good company to do a good and quality job is not easy. We have had numerous projects done through the years and have had good and bad contractors. It is a good feeling when you find and are satisfied with a company that did an excellent job on what you wanted completed. Thank you Beyond Pavers, Tito and his entire crew. Lorrie and Emmett!

Hunter Sprinkler Repair LLC
I bought a house recently and the sprinkler heads did not work and there were a few busted lines. Mr. Ron Hunter came out with his nephew and for a very reasonable price fixed the heads and lines that were not working. He got my system up and running and even set the control system to work for me. They even came earlier than anticipated and were done before the original scheduled time. He was very friendly as well and courteous. I had contacted Bug Out originally because we have a contract for the lawn and house, but they did not come out when they were supposed to and waited over a week to contact me and say they were unaware of their original appointment. Mr. Hunter came out, was professional and courteous, was honest and reasonable, and well worth the money spent! I plan on using Hunter Sprinkler Repair for all my future needs! :) Thanks Mr. Hunter!

Southern Green
We started to try this company but decided to cancel without giving them a chance because of the complaints of bed customer care and rude salesmen. When we cancelled, however, this company met us with kindness and understanding without any of the rudeness reported on other forums. We were actually very impressed with everyone we met with or spoke with from this local company, from the salesman Nick to the Managers David and Richard. We are starting to regret not giving them a chance and may decide to in the future. They have been here for over fifteen years so it is expected that they should have some 'bumps' in the road and it appears to us that they have corrected any problems. It is unfortunate that what is expressed on the net sticks around along time after corrective measures have been taken.

Brandon Pest Control
Tim came by my house when I told him I was having a problem with the weird ants getting into my house and the abundance of mice we'd been noticing outside. He was immediately friendly and helpful and explained to me exactly what kind of ants they were, how to get rid of them, and how to keep them from coming back. As for the mice, I have never been big on killing animals he was even gracious enough to show me live traps and how to set them up myself if I ever end up getting them again. (Living on a farm this is a part of life but at least they can stay OUTSIDE where they belong!) I would recommend him as a tech especially for his friendly and professional manner. Tim made me feel a ton less embarrassed about my pest problem and that this is something that can happen to anyone's home.

JC Total Lawn Care
I own several rental properties in the Jacksonville area and began using JC Total Lawn care for both my lawn care and housekeeping needs. The friendly and efficient office staff has been a Godsend for me on more than one occasion in assisting my efforts to coordinate new leasing opportunities as well as working me in at the last minute when an emergency arises. I use them for my own home as well and I couldn't be more pleased. Ashley in the office has saved me embarrassment very recently when I had unexpected visitors plan to stay with me in my own home..As a busy professional with both time and monetary constraints, I highly recommend JC Total services. Thanks again for all that you do

Grass Roots Lawn Care
This is to the 2 reviews I received on this website, I've had 100's of satisfied customers and the first review is from a lady that was still in my 10 years in business the worst client I've ever had to work for. This lady wanted work done but refused to allow us use to her electric outlet. Because every landscape company carries generators all over town. We completed all the work that was asked. Why would you pay in full if you saw the job and wasn't pleased??? On a second attempt to make this person happy she proceeds to have this goal in life to ruin our name. I am very blessed to have many customers that don't act like this.

Mr Ron Hunter and his staff are very professional and get the job done really really well. Very honest and nice guy. I highly recommend him and his staff. I called their company to look for one of my sprinkle zones not working and he came the following day on time and get to work quickly. He check and fixed everything very well. He found out that I have a broken pipes, valves, sprinkler heads and reconfigure my sprinklers. Excellent and very very nice and courteous person. I found Hunter Sprinkler in this "yp" page and I'd like to confirm all the positive reviews about Ron Hunter and his assistant nephew.

Jax Lawn & Sprinkler Inc
I had a company come out because my sprinkler system wouldn't turn on. They said I had lightning damage and gave me an estimate of just under $400. They told me I had to replace expensive parts. I wanted another opinion so I called jax lawn and sprinkle . While the tchnician was taking a look , he noticed my rain sensor wire was cut by the yard guy. He had my system back up and running in less than 5 min. He only charged me 35$ Needless to say jax lawn and sprinkler is my company from now on. Good old fashioned honesty is hard to come by
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.
