Amazing service

Amazing service! We have a regular employee who works our route and he always calls first to let us know he is coming because we have dogs boarding on our premises. Grass is well looked after. Green and lush. Hardly any weeds although maintenance is required by homeowner to pull when seen. They give us a bag of grass seed to fill in areas. This is gratis to annual fee which after shopping around proved to be the most reasonable. We are verry happy.

Lawncare Services

I’ve used Frechette for 10 years+. I’m a very satisfied customer. Employees are always professional and pleasant. Phone calls are always answered promptly. I’ve had many positive comments from neighbours regarding my lawn’s appearance. Over the years, I’ve made many referrals to Frechette. I pay extra for Fiesta treatment which I believe helps. I also remove weeds if they appear (usually a couple each week) which is a quick 5 minute maintenance job and keeps my lawn in great condition. Not much one can do about neighbours who don’t treat their lawns. I didn’t give a 9/10 score because some years they are delayed in starting their first application which delays all future
applications to be later than I’d like.

It is great to hear from such a happy customer! Compliments on your lawn are what we try to achieve each and every season. We try our best to get to all of our customers in a timely manner each season, but sometimes the weather doesn't cooperate with us. Please always contact us if you are concerned with your timeline, as we can try and move you up in the season.

Summer lawn care

Frechette is pretty good. They show up consistently and provide the required service. The even provide bags of grass seed free of charge. Their rates are reasonable as compared to others.

Frechette works for us.

I have had this company, who knows their stuff for several years.
They are consistent, answer their phone, and have good rates given others.
Happy to secure their service with a 10% savings on the cost by paying in advance!
Good people!

Long time customer

I have used Frechette for over 10 years. My lawn is one of the best on my street and I particularly am impressed with their hard surface weed control for driveways and patios. When I have had any issue, their customer service has been prompt in correcting the problem and I find their office and field staff very friendly and easy to deal with.

Lawn Care

I have used this company for about 4 years.
Very pleasant to deal with.
I would say my grass is healthier with the different fertilizers, weeds are better for the most part, but some areas, they continue to be there.
I would say the grub control is not assisting with the raccoons digging up the yard.
Not sure any products will provide perfect results.

Thank you for your business! We know that dealing with animals digging can be quite frustrating, we have a couple of tips that we can recommend to get them off your lawn. We are always available to talk in the office if the results you see are not what was expected.

Frechette Lawnservice inconsistent

1st yr of Frechette service I noticed a 40% positive result; ok. 2nd yr significant improvement; very pleased. This time last yr I had zero weeds; ecstatic. Now, I have more weeds than when I first began the service; disappointment understated. Customer Service extremely friendly as are the crews. I will allow them an opportunity to fix before end of season. If no discernable results, I will have to look else where for next season. I hope they will correct and not tell me I have to be patient because it takes time. Not what customers wish to hear after a few years.

STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY. I USED THEIR SERVICES FOR A YEAR AND A HALF. MY YARD, WHICH WAS RE-SODDED FOUR YEARS AGO, IS NOW TOTALLY DEAD FROM CHINCH BUGS.
THEY HAVE A TERRIBLE ATTITUDE AS WELL WITH NO CUSTOMER SERVICE.
I LIVE ON GLENRIDGE ROAD. I'M ALREADY TAKING FORMER CUSTOMERS AWAY FROM THEM. ALL THEY HAVE TO DO IS WALK BY MY HOUSE.
THEY ARE STRICTLY IN IT FOR THE MONEY.

Frechette Lawn Care

Signed up for lawn service after seeing treatment signs on lawns throughout my neighbourhood and requesting a quote. As soon as I provided my payment, I was told it would be "within the next couple of weeks" before they would apply the first treatment. I asked for a call back with a more specific timeline and was told that couldn't be provided. I promptly cancelled and will consider other more-timely services in my area.
