Switched to a company out of flint that my dad has used for years and I pre-pay $610 and they do all 6 feedings including aeration and over seeding with kentucky bluegrass.

My yard looks exactly the same color wise, and the over seeding has made it extremely thick. if I notice weeds, I call them and they show up the next day to spot treat. I honestly don't know how they can make money doing this, as it is almost a third of the cost that I paid for the material by itself.
not willing to share the company name?
