Five stars

Major grub damage was present on my lawn and the patches were getting out of hand. I had called in and spoke to a team member about fixing my grass and getting a grub application done which turned out to solve the problem. My dead grub patches stopped spreading and after a little bit of soil and seed the lawn came back just before the fall time. The work performed was timely and professional and I am glad I hired someone to do the job as I have always struggled with grubs.

Their lawncare services work like magic

Previously I had tried many lawn care services, but none worked like these guys. They are quite simply the best! This is my 3rd year with them and my lawn remains as beautiful as ever! I do water and mow regularly.

Prior to hiring them, my lawn was almost dead and overrun with weeds. In a couple of treatments they completely revived it. I was amazed. I feel so compelled posting a positive review every year. Hopefully this helps someone looking for excellent, reasonable lawncare services!

Look at the last pic on the left is my lawn and to the right my neighbours(what my lawn used to be!).

Keep up the great work WeedAWay! You guys Rock!

Happy with their service so far

We took the time to find a lawn care company at the beginning of the season in 2021 came across weed away and hired them to look after our lawn. After every visit, the lawn had improved and it was neat to see the transformation after every visit. Thanks for consistently doing a great job!

Lawn care project

We had purchased our new house in 2020 and the lawn was in very rough shape we were thinking about resodding it until one of our neighbours told us to contact weed away. We hired them to do the lawn and see what happens after about 3 months the lawn looked significantly better we started to change our minds on replacing the grass and stuck with the program to save money. Greg just called me for the 2022 season and I am happy to sign back up for another year and our hopes for the lawn continue as they made a lot of progress last season.

Highly recommend the services they provide

Seen a good improveent

I started services with the basic program and we have seen a good improvement with some weeds here and there but Greg managed to get me on the intermediate program which comes with free re-sprays for the weeds and the difference was only $50. We are excited to see the program switch and see how it goes for us as this year on the basic program we were pleasantly surprised with how the grass turned around. recommend their services for anyone who wants to try a company that has a lot of experience servicing grass. glad to give you guys my business thanks.

Thanks

Jesse, our technician who has been sent out to our yard multiple times is very helpful and always steers us in the right direction. We had a lot of grub damage and Jesse stopped by as we were seeding and soiling the grass where it was brown, he let us know we were putting the soil on too thick and did a small area for us to see. The grass grew in nicely and continued on with the program by fall our grass was fully repaired. We also were recommended to have a winterizer to strengthen the routes which ended up being given to us for free as we signed again for next year.

Good choice

After the last 5 years at our home getting services from weed away we have sold the house and downsized to a smaller lot which we will be obtaining the services in 2023. We trust the company to come to our home and look after the grass as we have never had any issues with the grass and we enjoy having a company that services us come back year after year. Looking for weed control or fertilizer applications for your lawn Weed away would be a good choice to try as we have been pleased.

The Yard this year was fantastic

The yard this year was fantastic. We did have a good amount of rain but the grass overall was healthy looking and had no weeds at all with the applications coming out. Our overall experience with the company has been good and we would recommend the services from weedaway to our friends and family to obtain. The staff and technicians are kind and take the time to answer any questions I had during the season which I liked.

Download our Lawn Care Tips to stay on top of lawn maintenance.

Now there’s a way to stop thinking "The grass is greener on the other side"! Weed-A-Way’s premium lawn care products and services will make your dream lawn a stunning reality. Here’s how:

*As industry leaders and certified IPM (Integrated Pest Management) specialists, our lawn care programs utilize the most advanced turf management practices and products.

*Our lawn amendment treatments as well as lawn care programs promote a vibrant landscape.

*Depending upon weather conditions, we use a combination of Liquid and Granular fertilizers. Of course, if you prefer Granular, just let us know.

*We guarantee results with our fertilizer and weed control programs. If after an application stubborn weed persists we'll come back and re-spray at no charge.

Our services consist of the following programs and additional services:

*Basic (Fertilizer & Weed Control) Lawn Care Program

*Intermediate Organic Lawn Care Program

*Advanced Lawn Care Program

*Weed Control: FIESTA: A highly-recommended timely weed control which is composed of iron and is odourless, Fiesta kills the weeds but does not harm the lawn. It is applied by our highly qualified technicians throughout your season long program. Weeds compete with grass and plants for nutrients, water and sunlight. Broadleaf weeds are usually the greatest threat. If not dealt with quickly, they can destroy all your hard work. Effective weed control solutions from Weed-A-Way lawn services will ensure a healthy and vibrant lawn. We have extensive experience in dealing with various types of weeds like dandelion, broadleaf plantain, etc., and know how to deal with each one.

*Core Aeration: The secret to a lush, green lawn is core aeration. Soil compacts over time and especially with traffic. Core aeration allows nutrients, water and oxygen to reach grass roots more easily. However, lawn aeration is more than just punching holes in the ground. You must have the proper equipment and be willing to set aside a couple of hours for aeration. It’s also important to know when your garden needs core aeration. Weed-A-Way’s lawn services take the trial and error out of grass treatments. We make sure that the grass is always green on your side of the fence.

*Grub Treatment: Typically, grubs attack grass roots. A damaged root system results in a poor quality lawn with dirty, yellowish brown patches. Timely grub treatment from Weed-A-Way will avoid the huge expense of replacing your lawn as well as eliminate the threat of skunks and raccoons that feed on them. By using natural grub treatments like nematodes (naturally occurring microscopic worms) to destroy them and alfalfa treatments to stimulate roots, increase growth and drought resistance, our efficient lawn services will ensure a strong and healthy turf.

*Crab Grass Control: Crabgrass forms thick clumps of light green leaves that are highly competitive with turf grasses. It turns brownish red in mid to late summer. Timely treatments are the most effective way to deal with crabgrass. Since this lawn problem germinates from seeds in spring it’s extremely important to apply the crabgrass control treatment before germination takes place.

*Lime Treatment: In order to have healthy soil that supports grass growth, it is important to maintain the appropriate pH (acidity) balance. Using lime treatment is often the best solution. Although some lawn experts recommend lime treatment before starting a lawn, applications on mature turf also have several benefits. However, in order for your lime treatment to be effective, you must have knowledge of your soil’s pH levels. Our experienced lawn services will analyze a soil sample before applying lime treatment to your grass. We make sure we get it done right.

*Surface Insect Control: Chinch bugs, sod webworms, cutworms and other surface insects usually strike in the summer. They are so small and usually buried in the lawn thatch; that’s why it so hard to spot them. Very often insect ridden grass looks dry and you might think it simply needs watering. Since your lawn is already stressed with the heat, drought-like conditions, weeds and traffic, the damage is greater. Weed-A-Way surface insect treatment means identifying your problems quickly and correctly, and then taking the appropriate control measures to eliminate the pests.

*Overseeding and Core Aeration: Core aeration makes your overseeding efforts worthwhile. By unplugging the soil in a methodical way, you can remove thatch and reduce soil compaction as well as increase success of weed, surface insect and lime treatments. But a significant benefit of core aeration with regard to overseeding is that it allows the nutrients to reach the seeds and roots faster. Our expert lawn services can handle your overseeding and core aeration requirements to ensure proper effectiveness.
