Very Professional! Workers were kind enough to remove stray toys out of the yard and didn’t complain when my 4 year old kept asking them questions about what they were doing! We are a work in progress. Was in pretty bad shape to begin with. There’s actually grass growing this year! They are definitely coming back. Can’t wait to see how things have grown by summer!
Thanks so much…I cringe when I see the little yellow flags go up on lawns to keep pets and children off after toxic chemicals have been applied. I wish I had gone natural years ago.
Love your newsletter, thanks for the great service this year. I love it that our dogs can roll around in the grass and I have no fear of poisoning them. As long as I have a lawn, Organic Soil Solutions will be the solution for me.
The team came once or twice a month to seed, to fertilize, to rake and clear the lawn. After each visit, Mike would leave a letter explaining what was done and how we could help the lawn. They basically gave us our lawn back. And, it’s all organic!! If we had questions or changes to our service, we’d call Mike. He is passionate about organic lawn care and always listened to our requests.”
The company was contacted in July 2013 because I was tired of hit or miss attempts on my part at caring for our lawn. Based on reviews and a visit by Mike, I was impressed by the program which uses organic fertilizers along with slice seeding, aerating and application of lime after taking soil samples which were analyzed by an outside lab. Another consideration was concern for our grandchildren playing in the yard along with their puppy which gets into everything! The program was initiated in mid August and finished in mid October. We had decided to add more irrigation to our yard in mid September. This definitely helped a lot to get the full benefit of the program. At this writing our yard looks much better and we’re looking forward to next year and even better grass. The employees are friendly and competent.
When we went organic my husband was skeptical that our lawn would look as good as our neighbor’s chemically managed lawn. The first year was tough on the lawn, but as Mike would reiterate, that is normal because most of the activity and fortification is happening in the soil and roots of the grass. It looked good but there were still some problem areas that were problems since we moved into our home. We also started in the Spring, when it’s better to start the lawn care in the fall. By the end of our first season though we were able to notice that the lawn was looking much healthier. We just signed another full year contract with Mike – i think this is our third season with him – and my previously skeptical husband loves how our lawn looks. The staff come and do their job with out needing to schedule a head of time, so it’s always a nice surprise to come and see that more work was done on our lawn (it’s not a real surprise, as our contract says what applications would be done). They also leave a note after each application explaining what was done and how that helps the soil and grass which is nice to understand. We chose to pre-pay a full year’s contract as he offers a discount over a pay per service plan. We look forward to many more years with organic soil solutions.
I used Organic Soil Solutions to put down new top soil and re-seed my entire lawn. I now use them for seasonal lawn fertilization and treatment. They are good and we are amazed. Our grass had been burned out last summer and we had somebody else taking care of it and they did not succeed. This company told us that the grass would grow and that we would have a good lawn and they were absolutely correct; it was in and worked within the time period they said. Their pricing was very reasonable in comparison with other companies.
Katie and I wanted to let you know how great we think our yards look right now thanks to your crew’s excellent edging and mulching job…This morning, Katie remarked to me that “those guys really know how to make the flower beds look great”, and how much she appreciated having time for us to do other things because of the work Alfredo and his colleague did
I want to take this opportunity to say thank you for the years of wonderful care you and your men took of the lawn. It really looked SO much better after you started working with it! Please give my personal thanks to Doug, who, as you know, I can’t say enough good things about. I will miss his smiling greeting every week and his willingness to be of assistance with whatever small extra landscape job I needed done.
Just a quick note to give special kudos to Brian and Alfredo, they came to do overseeding today, the lawn looks so terrific there was not much of that needed, but we had a truck that had to back over the lawn with a load of bricks and compressed ruts across part of the lawn. Brian and Alfredo worked hard to repair this issue by pitchfork, putting the soil back in place without disturbing the grass. Thanks again for the great and friendly service!
Today we had our grass mowed for the fist time, and I must say it looks beautiful. Thank you for reseeding and all; looks like it is going to be a great season at 2 Grant street!
Just wanted to say thanks. My lawn looks better this year than ever before. The OSS team has been managing my lawn since 2007 and it has fully recovered from 10 years of toxic treatment from ChemLawn. Last year I even had a beehive for the first time in my ten years here. Butterflies, birds, rabbits: the difference is amazing. Plus you’ve inspired me to compost kitchen waste. Thank you so much! I just recommended you to another friend. You have a fan in Newton.
I’ve used Organic Soil Solutions for over 5 years now…Very professional crew, they come when they say, and leave a note on your door saying what they did if you aren’t home. I use the early pay in spring option and save 10% for the summer’s treatments. My lawn looks great, and I don’t believe in watering! My neighbors ask…Mike’s taught me a few things about soil and pests, very good stuff. I plan on using them again in 2010 now that the construction is done. I like the reminder letter they send in the winter — it has good lawn and pest control tips.
Our lawn was in very poor shape, and we wanted to try an organic lawn company. They totally reseeded the portions of the lawn that were beyond saving, with their own special mix to suit our yard and fertilized the rest of the lawn…They did an amazing job. Were upfront about the difference we would see this year and next. The guys sent over to work on our lawn were friendly, went out of their way to explain any questions. Definitely a company with employees who take pride in their work. This year, we will do a complete service plan which will be more cost effective.
I wanted to tell you how pleased we are so far with the lawn. Thanks so much…your services have made it a joy to pull up to our house and to look out all of our windows.
I wanted to tell you that when we came back from Ireland in early August our lawn looked great (and still does)! We are very happy. And while we know it’s still establishing in places, I simply wanted to say thanks, the lawn looks fabulous!
I wish all businesses were run like yours-with integrity and respect for others…We wish you great success in all you do. By the way, our lawn is beautiful!
Mike seems to be very knowledgeable and they come regularly. They leave notice on the door about what they did and why.
The lawn is very good; it was in very bad shape before they started. They come a few times every year, and always leave a note explaining what they did. When I’ve called them with questions, they’ve always been very responsive.
The owner seems to be extremely knowledgeable about organic soil and lawn care, and the company chose treatments based on the needs of my lawn. It’s too soon to see the full impact on my formerly sad-looking lawn, but I sleep better at night knowing they took a good look at what my lawn needed instead of applying a cookie-cutter approach, and that there aren’t any harmful chemicals involved. Despite the individual attention, expertise, and specialty organics, their prices weren’t any more than a traditional lawn service, and were less on some services. I wish I’d have found them sooner. Try this in lieu of traditional chemical services…it seems to work better, and without any concerns about harm to kids, pets, wildlife, etc. We love that you offer safer, innovative options!
So far their services have been excellent. He gave me a list of lawns that he has worked on and I went and looked at them and they look excellent. I would use them again in the future.
They educated me about organic methods. They explained the process to me and they really know what they are doing. They are friendly, polite, and hard working. They do their work quietly and my yard looks gorgeous!
Michael responded promptly to my request for an estimate for lawn care. He came out when he said he would and gave me a lot of good information. He really knows his stuff. Shortly thereafter he mailed me a proposal. The cost was fairly competitive with other quotes I received, but I believe the quality of the products and the service will be much better. He also tailors the service to each lawns specific needs. I was very impressed with Michael’s knowledge of organic lawn care. He was happy to answer all my questions and tell me about some of his research. It is reassuring to know that I can have a natural lawn that won’t harm the environment or my children and pets. I found Michael to be very responsive and very professional.
With a new toddler grandchild I wanted to get rid of all chemicals in the lawn. Michael came promptly and explained what he would do. He also gave me a folder of information on what he would be doing and what I needed to do to keep up the lawn. Unlike the competition, he planned to do top-seeding in the spring and do the permanent reseeding in the late summer when the likelihood of success is highest. He came promptly and did the soil test and spread corn gluten. In early May he came and top seeded the weak area with compost etc. I must say it looks better than it ever has. He will continue with treatments through the summer and in late summer/early fall will reseed the whole area to hopefully get a permanent good lawn area.
We are really happy with the on-going service that this company provides. If a change needs to be made to our scheduled times, they let us know in advance. We like the fact that they use all-natural materials and our yard looks really nice. I would definitely recommend this company.
One of the things I like best about this company is that everything they do is completely organic. That is one of the reasons I decided to use them as opposed to other companies. I am totally satisfied with them and I think they are great personally. They keep our lawn looking nice and it is well worth our money.
They treat my lawn through the organic lawn care approach. They have been tremendous on educating me on proper ways to care for my yard. I believe I have received a decent deal with their capabilities and knowledge.
Mike came out to determine the treatment plan and measure up. He is very knowledgeable and professional. I called him before the guys came out to do the seeding and top-dressing to ask him if he could also do spring cleanup. He said yes. They came that weekend and did an outstanding job. I am very pleased with their courtesy, efficiency, and effectiveness.
Doug, the man who mows the lawn, is one of the most dedicated people we know. He really understands grass. Doug is polite, reliable and totally responsible. The charge of $60 per cut is in line with other services and he only cuts when the grass needs cutting, instead of cutting every week whether or not the grass needs to be cut.
Mike, the owner, responded promptly to all my requests (both by email and on the phone). He is knowledgeable about organic soil treatment, and takes pride in his work. I signed up for the annual plan, which means less to worry about for me. He comes once a month and he leaves a letter after each treatment. No need to remind him of the next treatment. My lawn looks better than ever!
Funny thing about the irrigation. I ran it less than ten times this summer. My neighbors have never changed from their initial new-lawn schedule – watering twice a day. Lawns are equally green. This stuff works!
My husband and I would like to thank you for your attention to the area of sod along our driveway…The new seed that was put down seems to be thriving, as does the rest of our lawn.
Just wanted to drop you a note to say how much I appreciated the excellent work that you and your crew did with my lawn this past year. The lawn looks great after 2 years of your efforts, especially as it was mown properly this summer. Doug was terrific; friendly, reliable and helpful and really lovely to have around working on my lawn. The other gentlemen who sometimes came were also very nice. All in all, I am pleased that I decided to hire you to take care of the lawn and wanted to thank you and your crew for such good work! Hope you have a good holiday season and I look forward to renewing my contract with you for next summer.
I just received this year’s service contract, and it arrived at just the right time. It was a great reminder that yes, there is a lawn beneath this snow, and that the air will indeed warm up eventually! I not only love what you do for our lawn, but also how friendly and attentive your service is. Your letters are always fun to read, and I was very impressed when you sent the letter congratulating your employee’s accomplishments…It’s just that kind of thing that makes us glad to be your customer. We are so happy with your service that I recommended Organic Soil Solutions in the Winchester Neighbors Club rolodex (a list of recommended service providers that’s published in our annual directory). Hopefully our other members will come your way.
I cannot believe it was just the second year we started treating our garden and lawn organically. WOW! What a difference! I don’t know if you remember, but we had huge holes and area where grass was not even growing after trying for 2 years. Chris and I are very pleased and we really want to thank you very much for doing such an amazing job!
