Can anyone out there suggest a company that is dependable, reasonably priced, and does a good job? I checked older posts and not many were mentioned. I was wondering who you all are using and what you pay for the acreage you have. Much appreciated!

I do it myslef, but I have heard good things about these guys.

Welcome to Eastern Turf Maintenance (http://www.etmlawncare.com/Welcome.html - broken link)

They are locally owned and I don't think they make you sign a contract. You may also want to check with your neighbors to see who they use. Nothing beats a first-hand referral.

I used NC Turf Care when I lived in Raleigh and was very pleased with them.

Yeah - They would be the last one I would call. They are all about upselling and locking you into a contract with applications you don't need. Plenty of other operations with competetive prices out there to choose from.

I just started with Lawn Doctor. He has been treating my neighbor's lawn for the past 2 years and it looks like a postcard. He's located in Holly Springs, but services the entire area. So far, it's been great, personable service. No high pressure upsells as someone mentioned with Scotts.

Timing is exactly why I starting doing it myself....especially when related to the weather, and ESPECIALLY with two Boston Terriers!

My neighbors have good things to say about EPM Lawn Care

Do not use Scotts. They have been horrible two years in a row now. They tell you they will not do it until it gets cooler and they treated my lawn today. Didn't call like they were suppose to and broke my irrigation system. Call TROSA if you are in Durham. By far the best and it is a good cause.
