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.

Five Stars

We hired Weed Away to take over from us doing the lawn ourselves as we have always done it. The weeds went away within one spray and our property has never looked better this season. We got to enjoy our yard more and had a couple of compliments from our neighbours. A family run company which in our eyes makes a big difference as one of the sons seems to make a presence and have good conversations with us about our grass.

I finally found a weed-n-feed service that delivers

These guys are awesome! If you are looking for an excellent weed-n-feed service, look no further.
Prior to engaging them, my lawn was a mess. Totally overrun by weeds. These guys turned it around completely. Awesome job guys!

Killed most of grass spray applicaiton

We Hired Weed-a-way last year and was quite satisfied with there service. This year was a big year since we were planning a wedding on our property so I top dressed, over-seeded and spent the whole summer making sure the grass was impeccable for the wedding in early September. In late August i called because there were no fertilizer applications since June and the grass was looking like it needed fertilizer and was told that it was being scheduled. Since I was working from home, I observed the application and saw the person spot apply weed killer to weeds and didn't even look at much of the lawn. When I called and asked about fertilizer, i was told the lawn was fertilized as well. I challenged them and told them some areas of the lawn were not even looked at were only spot sprayed. They then sent someone out to spray the whole lawn just prior to the wedding. Thank god it wasn't earlier because whatever they did, it killed the grass. at the time of the wedding, it was just getting yellow but a few weeks later most of it died. I am now in the process of re-sodding the entire lawn.

Visits are inconsistent

I would not recommend this company. It's not acceptable for a weed application to be over 2 months apart. I received one application June 30th and just received my last one September 10th. The invoice they dropped at my door on the 30th of June said they would be returning in 5-6 weeks. Clearly, that didn't happen nor was I informed by phone or even email to indicate that they would not be on time. This is not the kind of customer service I expect. If you going to be late, fine, but at least inform your customer and keep them up to date on what's happening. In the two month period I had so many more weeds grow because Weed-a-Way wasn't there.

Hi Jake could you please give me a call 9058056868 sometimes when the weather is hot in the summer we extend our visits to up to 8 weeks. I am one of the managers and would like to make sure that you have no weeds as I will come out myself and spray them if you do.

Thanks Morgan

It was a great work

In 2018 I have hired weed away to look after my personal home and then also hired them to look after the grass for 2 of my rental properties. The tenants are happy with the way the grass looks as before it was builder grade and the weeds just completely took over. For curb appeal being a real estate agent I find the services worth it as it adds a lot of value while making the home owners happy.

I have used this company for 2 years to look after my lawn, and I am happly with their services.

improvements on lawn, all most no weeds, particuparly those yellow weeds in this month.

The only questions I am going to ask is that, if I want to re-seed some of my lawn and add the top soils , what's the additional cost ? Or I can order the top soil and your technician just add that for me.

Do your company also provide other maintence services for the lawn ?

Appreciate your reply.

Hi Willy, thanks for the kind words we really appreciate it and are would like to help you with the grass seed and soil. Our company would recommend an aeration with over seeding and then would ask that you apply a thin layer of soil on top to coat the seeds. Watering for the next 10-14 days after the application has been done is advised.

Any of our staff can further answer your questions at 9058583100

Good result

My family has really enjoyed the use of our back yard last summer and hired weed away to get rid of the prickly weeds which my kids hated to step on kicking the soccer ball around. Our lawn is weed free and we just signed up for the 2021 season and look forward to the same results. We have recommended services to friends and family as our experience was positive.

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.
