But their reviews online were a little mixed (maybe in part due to the multiple franchises), most folks complaining about unfriendly/unresponsive service. Anyone have good/bad experiences with weed-man or any other companies recently?

Had a rough time with weeds last year (crabgrass, dandelions and wild-strawberry primarily) and want to try to get things under control for a year before going back to doing it myself
We use Leapfrog. I forget the total per treatment but our service runs 300 a year and I think all but 50 of that is for the 7 treatments we get (organic, safe for kids/pets).

Thanks thats a great recommendation since we have been looking for organic/safer choices and so far found just one other place (pleasant green grass it was called I think). How has your experience been with Leapfrog, do they also do spot treatments on an as-needed basis that the others seem to be happy to do?
Have the results compared favorably with previous/non-organic companies or should I have lower expectations in terms of weed control if going the organic route?

After a lot of experience with these companies, they are mostly all the same. We had Weedman for a while, and they charged us $52 for a 0.25 acre lot. (well, I'm not sure how much it is with the house on it).

Just switched to a local company, Davenport Landscaping, who is doing the same stuff for $41 per treatment. They seem to have good customer service as well, and many people in the neighborhood have switched over.

They are very easy to work with and quite responsive. We've had them for about 3 years now. We really don't have any weeds to speak of.

Now that I know I should be putting down a pre emergent right about now, does anyone have a recommendation for a good store-bought brand?
