Information with regard on rejuvinating my lawn

Where do you find a company that puts your lawn before the up sell of a franchised company....right here. They took time to speak to me about my cinch bug problem, types of fertilizer etc., now I can make an informed decision.
There is so much to know and so many contradictions out there. Please know this family puts your lawn first and holds your hand every step of the way. I would like to rate them 200%

Great People and Great Service

Many thanks to Dina, Craig and Tristan for the delightful job they do keeping our lawn green and free of weeds. We've been customers for many years now and have always been satisfied with their work. Professional yet friendly and approachable, valuable advice is offered with each visit, and they were willing and able to tailor my service to my needs (I need front-yard service only since the rear yard has no grass). I highly recommend Durham Lawn Jockey for anyone looking for an affordable, high-quality service for lawn maintenance.

Lawn Service

My wife and I have used Durham Lawn Jockey for over 15 years, and have been more than pleased with their service. This is a family run business. They are extremely professional, honest, friendly, and willing to go the extra mile. If we have questions, they are always very responsive. I wish all businesses would run as efficiently as Durham Lawn Jockey. My wife and I are happier than 2 clams at high tide with Durham Lawn Jockey !!

Very satisfied customer!

I tried for a couple years on my own but decided this year to hire a company. I preferred to go with a local family owned business like Durham Jockey and wow am I ever glad I did! Their customer service is incredible and it is completely apparent that they take pride in their job. Despite the hot summer, my lawn is looking the best it has looked. I have a severe case of Creeping Charlie which I knew from the beginning would be a multi-year battle, however I believe I’ve noticed a reduction! I highly recommend this company. Why would anyone go with one of the bigger companies that uses harassing sales tactics and subpar care when you could hire Durham Jockey?

Lawn Care

I heard excellent reviews on Durham Lawn Jockey and so far they have been amazing. My lawn got hit hard this summer with the hot temperatures and I gave Lawn Jockey a call to inquire about their services. Dina provided some very helpful tips and Craig came by right away to assess the property and provide a quote for their annual services. They are very passionate about their work and have already gone that extra mile to assist. I look forward to seeing the positive results moving forward.

Lawn Care

Very professional company.

Craig & Dina show great patience as they teach us how to care for our grass. All questions/emails were answered within ~24 hours.

We have been extremely happy with the service and expertise they supplied. We will definitely be signing up again next year.

BTW are lawn has fully recovered and looks amazing.

Will there be a fall over-seed?

Thanks Gary & Shan

Thank you Gary & Shannon! We try and look after everyone's lawns as if they are our own. With your contribution, it has recovered beautifully:-) I just sent you both information about seeding. Fall is the best time, taking advantage of 2 growing seasons and reinforcing the root system in preparation for winter. We look forward to another great season! Cheers!!

Great value from a local business that just gets it

After years of trying to improve our lawn ourselves, 2 years ago we caved and decided we needed professional help. We mistakenly went with a large company that serves homes all over the GTA. We quickly regretted that decision as there were service errors, communication errors, high pressure selling of more treatments/products and difficulty to confirm not renewing the contract.

A friend recommended Durham lawn Jockey to us and because their offices were around the corner from where I live I wanted to help a local business. I couldn't be happier with their service and value received. This was the best year of our lawns (By far) and the service was professional and courteous. The best way I can describe them is that they just get it. Treat people the way you want to be treated, make a living and everybody wins. I would highly recommend them for your landscaping needs. Thanks Craig and the team for your service to our home this past season. We will be back!

Great service, effective program

Durham Lawn Jockey has been maintaining my lawn for several years. They consider the needs of my lawn, rather than simply giving the same services to everyone. They are very courteous, efficient and pleasant, always. They provide lots of helpful information and recommendations. Simply a great team.

Lawn Maintenence

My parents used Durham Lawn Jockey and they were my first call when we moved into our new house. For every blade of grass, we had at least ten weeds on our lawn. Three years later, we have a full lawn which is virtually weed free.

Everytime they service us they leave a note stating what was done and any comments/tips to help you take care of your lawn between service visits. Highly recommend Craig!
