J's Lawn Svc
J's Lawn service exceeded my expectations. I contacted J's Lawn Service after I was looking for a contractor to lay flagstone for my project in my backyard. I set up an appointment Linda and Juan the owners of business. We were to discuss the project and cost of the installation of the flagstone. I told Juan and Linda what I wanted to do and they gave me a fair and reasonable price. Juan helped me in the complete design of my project. He gave me insight as to what could be done on project. Linda and I sat down and came up with the final cost and set up an appointment date. I booked about a month out and Linda called me the Friday before the project was to be started on Monday. I was impressed to say the least. Monday came and J's Lawn Service crew showed up promptly. They were very nice and cordial. The working crew were on time everyday for my project. My flagstone project was 38 x 26 in size and was completed in 1 week. Linda assured me from the beginning that I would be happy with the outcome. She was right!!!! I was more than happy with the outcome. My wife was very pleased also. We have had people over since the project was completed and everybody loves it... Good Job J's Lawn Service, I look forward to working with you in the future on other projects. I will tell many people about you. Thanks Linda, Juan and Crew.

Scotts LawnService
I have 1 and 1/2 acres that I needed mowed. Due to the rain we have had over the last four weeks our yard had gown up to knee height. When the Scott's Lawn Service team of men showed up to do the job, they came without having the proper equipment for a job the size of my yard. The team did finish the job, but it was cut unevenly,because they cut a lot of my side yard and back yard with only a weed eater. They arrived late both days and did not provide their own five gallon water dispenser, thus the team kept knocking on my door asking for cold water in their 16 ounce bottles. The estimate that I was given for the job was $100.00. After the team had mowed ONLY my front yard they started to say it would be over $200.00 more to finish the job. Don't believe their estimates or the time they will arrive. I do not recommend anyone that has more than a 1/4 acre lot use this service.

Blanco Fixit
This is THE place to get your lawnmower fixed. They told me they have a 1 week turn around time, and they called me back in 4 days, on a federal holiday, to let me know my mower was fixed. I picked it up on the holiday, the repair was $56, and I immediately went home and cut my yard. The mower worked flawlessly. The owners, husband and wife team, are so nice and have no issues telling you how to care for your mower, clean the air filter, change the oil yourself, etc. They charge so little, and happily give out the basic information most folks don't know when it comes to taking care of their mowers. I will tell everybody I know about the Blanco Fix-It, and return there knowing that I have found the ideal repair shop. Thanks to the men and women of the Blanco Fix-It! You guys are the best!

Joseph's Lawnmower Shop On Wheels
GREAT SERVICE!!Joseph is a very nice, quiet gentleman, who who brings his "lawnmower shop-on-wheels" to you, and quickly repairs or tunes up your lawnmower. It usually takes him less than half an hour and it's running like new! His prices are good, and you don't have to lift and haul your mower around town to get it fixed....or leave it at some shop and wait for two weeks, while your grass grows! I have relied on Joseph for years to work on my VERY OLD riding lawnmower and I find him to be efficient and reliable. Usually, when I call him, he comes out the next day. He always leaves my mower running smoothly. I heartily recommend him!

Abelia Sprinkler Repairs
I get "happy feet" every time I turn on my sprinkler system now. I have a very "home made" sprinkler system that had several ill-functioning and one very broken sprinkler heads. My first concern is that no one would want to touch this system and then they would insist on just building a new one. David was very accommodating, he made suggestions to improve my system without pushing me to extend my budget. He added an additional line and replaced several sprinkler heads. I believe his pricing was comparable to other professional providers, but in actuality was probably better since he basically reworked my entire system.

McCain Enterprise, Landscaping Services
We recently received a postcard in the mail advertising service with McCain Enterprise. We checked out their website and was very impressed with the variety of services and specials that they offered. We spoke with the owner Jeff and set up an appointment for him to come out and provide us with a bid. He was very informative, professional and affordable. He walked us through the process step by step, provided us with watering, mowing and maintenance tips. An our yard looked great. We would highly recommend him and his company to our friends. ...Mr. Zapata.

Abelia Sprinkler Repairs
The best compliment I can give David is my repeat business. I used him in the past and was impressed by his work ethic. His philosophy is to treat every sprinkler system as if it was his own, and it shows in the finished product. He's very easy to work with. He is prompt, explains the repair to be done, his prices are fair, he works fast, and gives a two year warranty on newly installed parts and replacement cost . Why would I use anyone else?

J's Lawn Svc
J's Lawn Service went above any beyond to make our yard look amazing. Completed a beautiful flagstone patio with seating benches, laid 7 pallets on sod, and re worked all of our planting beds. They showed up everyday at 8 am and didn't leave until after 5. Worked through all of the rain and broken irrigation lines. They repaired or replaced anything they damaged to exceed my expectations. I can't say enough about Juan, Linda, & their crew!!!

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’s 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.
