Moving into a new house at the end of this month. The builder laid sod. I want to give it a good chance to take and live but since I am not going to be around much I need a service for feeding etc. I used Chemlawn many moons ago up here in NJ and had no complaints. Can someone reco either a national or local guy?

We've been VERY happy with Richard Newkumet's Stone Valley Landscapes. He is VERY competitively priced and we've had no complaints about him. He's cut, fertilized, treated, and seeded our yard and aside from just a BAD run of luck post-seeding this past Fall with a string of rainy days making our front yard a mudpit, our yard's looked pretty good. He can be reached at 919-559-6507.

We've also heard nothing but good things about TROSA. It's a great organization with a great mission and should we ever become unhappy with Stone Valley, it's who we'd be likely to turn to.

Very nice young man at Stone Valley. He gave me a very good price on cutting and lawn care. I was surprised the cost was that low. Hope they do a good job.

I've been nothing but happy with him, lancers - he's pretty good about recommending services without upselling too much and always leaves my yard clean and tidy. Worst he's ever left behind was he accidentally left his sunglasses behind when I got him to root up two old shrubs for me!

Nutri Lawn in N. Raleigh (Nutri-Lawn2). He has taken out front yard from completely bare from the previous owners to nice and lush. The page is a little bare but he does great work.

Anyone ever use TROSA? Might have to find a lawn service quick. No problems last year but not happy this season so far at all.

We have recently started using them for some services. Doing a good job with the lawn care, mow/blow/edging, etc.; rates are good. Too soon (~1 month) to know how they will do over the longer run. We had them five years ago and were generally happy.

Wish I could speak for TROSA but I tried to get an estimate from them last year, they came to take a look and never got back to me with their estimate. Contacted them again recently but they didn't seem to have very much interest in answering my questions so someone else will get my business. Shame because I loved their moving services.

I had a similar experience to cdashd with TROSA and simply gave up on them. We have had good results from CVG Landshaping: Untitled Document Chris is a really nice guy and their rates are competitive.
