Lawn Care

I have been using Lawn Jockey for a few years now and my lawn has never looked as good as it does now. If I have any problems with anything Dina and Craig are there. Lots of construction in my area so lots of weeds showing up. There is never an issue with Craig coming to do an extra weed application. Their service is excellent and would not change to anyone else. First class act. I highly recommend them to anyone.

Lawn Care Service

I was looking for a good lawn care service and was tired of the big franchise companies. I've seen some of the work they do and i was not impressed. I prefer to work with smaller family run companies as i feel that on the whole they are more responsive and care about the work they do. I had been doing my research and found a blog written by Craig and realized right away that this guy was passionate about his work which is something i look for when hiring/working with someone.

I decided to hire them shortly thereafter and it's probably been about 4 years if i recall correctly of using their services and I am very satisfied with them across the board. Craig, Dina and Tristan are always indulging me when i call them about types of weeds or concerns i have with my lawn which has been great.

I have many trees and a dog so i have what you might describe difficult lawn growing conditions, but with our combined efforts I have found that my lawn is one of the healthiest on the street.

I would not hesitate to recommend Durham Lawn Jockey to anyone looking for a good lawn care company. Looking forward to many more years of healthy green lawns.

Lawn Care

After another company almost destroyed my lawn, Durham Lawn Jockey came in and saved the day, Craig/Dina/Tristan are the best. Durham Lawn Jockey is the best company I have ever dealt with, they are conscientious, helpful, always keeping you updated on what they are doing. I had my sons wedding in my backyard and Craig & Tristan brought my lawn from dead to beautiful. I highly recommend this company I would not use anyone else, because they care.

Lawn Care

I have used Durham Lawn Jockey for 3 years now, at 2 properties. My last house was very much in need of their service. Each statement gives me helpful tips on what to watch for and how I can ensure that the fertilization or weed control application I just got will be successful. These instructions have helped me at my new house. I even like the horse-race-themed names of their lawn care programs!

Thanks to Craig and his team for another successful year. Ready to sign up for next year.

They showed up throughout the year to maintain our lawn and keep the weeds under control.

Durham Lawn Jockey has done a wonderful job for me. I saw their truck on the road and decided to give them a call. Great service, great work, very knowledgeable, and easy to communicate with. I have used them for the past 2 years, and will be using them for my future lawn needs.

Yearly Maintenance

Durham Lawn Jockey is the best. We hired them late last year to help us fix our lawn. Craig provided great, honest advice and their services work. Our lawn once again looks great, and we have Durham Lawn Jockey to thank. I would recommend them to anyone. We're looking forward to many years of working with Craig and Dina to keep our lawn looking great.

Lawn Maintenance

We have been using this company for our lawn for over 6 years now and are extremely satisifed with their service. Not only is Craig, knowledgeable about the industry, products, standards, etc., he tries to educate his clients on what a great lawn looks like and how to spot any 'invaders'. I have found that with this company, we have a partnership in maintaining our lawn. Although sometimes mother nature doesnt cooperate, its a combined effort in growing a healthy lawn. They leave us a statement of what service they performed and any instructions to be done before the next service call. They truly CARE about their clients and the work they do. From the office to their technicians, this company is a 10 in my books and I would highly recommend them!

Lawn Care Miracle

Having 4 large dogs had destroyed my back lawn and the front lawn was sparse and covered in weeds. Last Spring, after deciding it was time to do something about the mess, I called Durham Lawn Jockey. My back yard was 85% hard packed barren dirt, they had their work cut out for them.

Durham Lawn Jockey aerated the front and back lawn, and reseeded and fertilized both in the spring. I followed the care instructions I was given and within weeks I had grass where I never, ever thought it would grow again. I was sure I was going to have to buy sod.

Within 2 months I had a healthy green lawn, in fact I had one of the best lawns in the entire neighborhood! They came back to do a fall aeration, overseed and fertilizer and they were just here last week to start our spring program. I am THRILLED with the look of my lawn; you would never know it was the same yard, even the before and after photos I took are hard to believe.

The service I was provided and the care and time that Craig, the owner, took to ensure all my needs were met was excellent. I got exactly what I asked for, and then some, at a more than reasonable price.

Lawn Care

For years we struggled with trying to keep the beasties from eating our lawn... very often having to replace large swathes of it. We finally gave up trying to maintain it ourselves so we hired some of the well known "professionals" in the area. However, we were still not satisfied given that we continually found ourselve calling them to complain.

Since hiring Craig and his team at Durham Lawn Jockey a couple years ago our lawn has been thick and green and beastie-free. When it comes to lawn care, Craig really knows his stuff. To top it off, Craig often makes a point of knocking on the door occassionaly to say hello and check if we have any issues... which is a nice personal touch.

We take every opportunity to recommend the Durham Lawn Jockey.
