I re-sodded the front yard of the house I am renting since the yard was bare with a few weeds. This company had door-to-door salesmen in my area about a month later. I knew the new sod was struggling so I thought I would give them a try. After the first application, the sod greened up nicely; however, all applications after have done nothing but to fuel the weed growth. Now after the fifth and free application, my sod is back to struggling due to more and hardier weeds than when I first moved in!
They left a bill on my door stating they had treated for chinch bugs, yeah they treated all right...It didn't kill them at all; it only made them all retreat into my house! I had to call my exterminator in a month early to spray my house for the dang chinch bugs!

I signed up for Southern Green a few months ago and I must say my lawn looks better than ever. I used to use other companies and they just couldn't get it right. Ever since switching to the local guys, I've seen a great positive change in

I've been using Southern Green for the past five years, and I gotta say I don't think most of you "critics" understand the purpose of a lawn service. I mean truly some of your comments are just plain silly. I can tell you without a shadow

I used to use Tru-Green and my lawn looked hideous. One day, I got a call from Tony at Southern Green soliciting my business. I was going to look for a new lawn chemical service anyway, so I listened to what he had to say. He explained

Ruined my lawn. Fired them after they sprayed water and said it was treatment. Charged $30 extra for special Chinch Bug insecticide resistant to regular poisons. What a scam. I actually got chinch bugs after that! If you have them, run out

They are the worst. We have a rental house and we hired Southern Green to come in and maintain by spraying. Everyone in the neighborhood that used them quit. I later learned that they will typically spray a small section and leave the rest, charge you for the entire service and then sell the rest on the side to make extra $$.

Needless to say, our lawn looked awful about 3 months after we hired them and we are now having to replace a good portion of our lawn.
I met several people that are filing lawsuits against them for exactly the same thing.

I will say my lawn is green, but it's not just the grass that's green. I just soded my front lawn early spring 2010, and already my front lawn is being taken over by crab grass and every other type of weed grass out there. I am paying too much to have my lawn taken over this way. I paid to have it aeration and they said it was done early July. I don't believe it was ever done because I have bare spots in my back yard where I would have seen the holes from the aeration. So far not too satisfied with Southern Green, but then all the others suck too. Best thing is to fertilize myself. From the looks at these other reviews, Southern Green won't be around long. One Star isn't very good.

Southern Green does not even deserve a one star. Over the past two or three years they have been practicing destroying my lawns. I now have cinch bugs, weeds and a ugly yellow lawn. It take a lot of skill to accomplish this.

Lawns on either side of me are in far better shape,. and green, and basically weed free. Southern green says they are different then my lawn even though one was sodded at the same time.

Believe me, do not trust them with your lawn.

They should be put out of business. The person you talk to is rude, abrupt and wants to argue, I lost my temper with her. But, it is not her it is the incompetence of southern green she is protecting. And she does not know how to make excuses for the company So she just argues.

If they did their job correctly there would be no weeds or bugs and I would have a nice green lawn like my neighbors.

Crafty salesman on the phone. My situation is different. I was trying to save my yard. Southern green agreed to treat the yard and I was told that I would see a positive result in 17 days or I would not have to pay. The weed loved what they put down and grew to their full potential and over took the yard. I called and told them what was going on and they treated again. I was not at home when they treated and declined to treat the back yard. The bill that they left had hand written notes telling me that they could not save the yard. I would have to re-sod. The bill said that I needed to pay the bill. They did not live up to the deal they had made. I have been fighting with them ever since and have recently included a lawyer. Don't walk away from these people, run as fast as you can. You have been warned.

This is the worst lawn care company. They managed to kill my beautiful lawn in 3 months. They are very unprofessional when dealing with an issue. They write false information on the slips they leave on your door nob to cover their butts. The owner will never return your call and their office manager sucks. She is very unprofessional and had the nerve to argue with me. I will report them to BBB, and I will sue them to replace my grass. I suggest we all get together, sue them and take them out of business!

Put this Company out of business before they cheat anyone else. Be sure to read all reviews and be very leary of those reviews that speak well of this Company. See BBB rating its an F!!!

I firmly agree with the last reviewer and found Dave Bennet's review to be very laughable (sorry Dave if you are for real, I am very happy that you are one of not many that haven't lost by doing business with the company). I have never received such an unprofessional response to a problem as to what Southern Green has to deliver. They convinced me to switch to them and pre-pay for a year which was the biggest mistake I have ever made. After several months of service from this company my lawn was destroyed. I will be fling a complaint with the BBB (note their rating is an F- another thing I should have checked into before I signed up with them) and also a claim with the Clay County small claims court as I still have not received my refund for the services they have not provided. NEVER PREPAY FOR THIS TYPE OF SERVICE (they claim they only send out refunds once a quarter well that was 5 months ago when they promised me a refund). The funny thing is after all the headaches with this company I spent $60 at a local garden shop (I love Pat's on 17) and my yard is back to looking great. Take my advice and the many others that have posted here and put this COMPANY OUT OF BUSINESS - they have cheated one too many of the North Florida residents.

Who ever wrote the previous review was either an employee or paid to write it. Souther Green is the most unprofessional, unexperienced company with no knowledge of how to care for grass that I have ever dealt with. My lawn had very little winter damage and no chinch bugs when I signed with them. After four months my lawn was destroyed by chinch bugs. I was sold a plan with the fourth treatment being free which I have in emails to prove but they are still trying to collect for that fourth treatment months later. I had to hire a nether company to come and treat for chinch bugs two days after Southern Greens treatment (SG tech said I did not have chinch bugs on day of treament) due to the infestation of chinch bugs. DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY IT IS A WASTE OF MONEY AND TIME!

Excellent experience!
I have just received Yard of the Month award and this is due to the excellent service and advice I received from Southern Green. I have lived in this house for 17 years
and this my first award. My neighbors are so amazed by the transformation that they ask "who does YOUR lawn"
I am more than happy to refer them! The president of the Homeowners Assoc. just switched toSouthern Green of Orlando.

Dont ever trust this company!!!!

Everything they said was a lie! My lawn looks worse than ever after they have treated it! I now have dirt and dead grass for my lawn and they did not take any accountability for not doing the job they promised to do. When I called to cancel, I spoke Marie the office manager who was very rude and did not listen, she spoke over me everytime I tried to express a concern regarding the service we had received. I am disgusted with the service I received and do not recommend this company to anyone! This company has no idea what keeping their word to the client means!!!! Unless you want to be seriously disappointed and angry dont do business with this company!

They will sucker you in for a low price, but remember you get what you pay for. They treated my lawn for a year and it died. Once Spring rolled around they fertilized the heck out of it; NEVER greened up nor could they identify the problem/issues I was having. They continued to treat my lawn for 2 months and after them not able to resolve issues: NOT returning phone calls, NOT correcting the yellowing, NOT addressing the dying blades of grass, NOT being able to address the gray leaf spot (I identified this myself). I canceled. A week later Truley Nolan came out, they identified the problems of yellowing, gray leaf spot. My grass has greened up and the spots are gone. This was after 1 treatment. TRULEY NOLAN IS THE BEST

J.D. called during supper quoted me a price, I said 'thanks but no thanks" and he treated my lawn anyway and now tells me he will send the bill to collections if I don't pay.
The whole company seems to full of bullies and if others are beening treated like this we need to shut them down.

These guys lured me in with the talk of low price, no contracts, top level service, free return visits if they miss something. In less than a year they destroyed half of my back yard and a big piece of my front yard. Weeds everywhere, chinch bugs destroying huge sections. We had paid for a year in advance in January to try and save money and have not had any luck in getting a refund. I have left messages for the owner (Sean) at least 5 times and no response. I am submitting my consumer complaint form as we speak.

This company is worse than the other reviews written. I switched to them last year. I scheduled to have my yard plugged and they missed that. They apologized and called me to give them another chance including a free treatement. I have lived at my residence for three years and am losing my yard. It is the worst it has ever looked. I water it (have the bills to show) and nothing. I've been trying to talk to the boss "Shawn" for over three days now. They/he will not call you until after working hours, if at all. "Marie" at there office is as rude an individual you can ask for. DO NOT USE THESE PEOPLE FOR LAWN CARE IF YOU CARE ABOUT YOUR LAWN.

I recieved a call from Southern Green and they told me that they wanted an opportunity to earn my business. At first their promises sounded to good to be true. They promised to fertalize my lawn, kill my weeds and kill my bugs in my yard. I gave them a chance and they did what they said they were going to do! Imagine that a company in this day and time that keeps their word! I'm so pleased with them, when my neighbors compliment me on my yard, I tell them these guys walk the walk!

I got a call from a gentleman by the name of J.D. yesterday. I usually turn down cold calls at dinner time, in fact I'm on the "Do Not Call List", but JD piqued my curiosity, so I gave him a chance to make his "schpill"...

He explained the "no contract" agreement, the services they provide and the pricing. You also have to understand that I'm a do-it-yourself-er and dropping nitrogen balanced fertilizer isn't foreign to me. But for the price and not having to worry about it, I think it might be worth the money.

I'll report back after they apply the first treatment. So far, so good.

They ruined my yard and yet they keep billing me. They have no shame and no honor. I am going to tell everyone in St Johns County I can what an scammy, horrible company they are. They are terrible, my yard just kept getting worse. Worse lawn decision I've made in 30 years.

I started using this company in 2008 when a pleasant sales rep promised they could do the same job as Scott's and I would have their finest technician. First several month's were fine. Then yard gradually became worse with more weeds, more insect damage.
Then after this harsh winter it was apparent just how bad the weeds were because they were all green and the St. Augustine was tan. Weeds were EVERYWHERE and there were bare spots from insect damage.
They lured me in with lower price, promise of excellent service. They changed tech's on me without notice. They don't give a crap about their reputation, just getting the money.
RUN AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY!!!!!

They have treated my yard once a month for a year. My yard never greened up; continued to have weeds. I had spilled granule fertilizer; my grass greened right up in that spot. I mentioned to the technician and he said the yard my need a granule treatment. Ok, when you come out to treat my yard you should notice it is not green and maybe used more iron to green it up????? Once they come out to respray for the weeds; I will cancel them.
WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY.

My lawn was salvagable at one time and had only a few problems, but that was before Southern Green started "treating" it. Now nearly my entire lawn is gone (front and back). BUYER BEWARE! Use Southern Green ONLY if your goal is to re-sod your lawn.

Everthing negative comment below is true. Do not use this company because when you call to complain about why chinch bugs are destroying your lawn they will take no resposibility and you will not enjoy the conversation.

Call any other professioanl lawn treatmemnt firms.

Hard to believe a company exists today with abrasive customer service. They are right and you the customer are wrong. Their lawn care treatments resulted in chinch bug infestation with partial loss of lawn. They took no resposilbility.

Talking to them on the phone is surreal. Call only if you want to spike your blood pressure.

Yes, another dissatisfied former customer. I've called often over the past several months regarding my weed problem; the story was always the same; "In a few weeks you'll see improvement." It just got worse. They did re-spray a few times, but the weeds continued to spread..they might as well been spraying water for all the good it was doing. When the manager told they would "come out in a few weeks with a stronger spray", my question was "Why didn't you do that months ago if the current chemicals were not working? And of course, they expected me to continue to pay for the service even though the weed and bug problem continued to get worse. When I suggested that the stronger treatment should be tried at no charge since we had had the problem all summer with things getting worse, not better, the manager got very rude and defensive. He did say he would talk with the owner and call me back, but that was the last I heard from him. He refused to return my phone calls. How they stay in business i'll never know. DO NOT USE SOUTHERN GREEN! A complete WASTE of MONEY, not to mention what I will have to spend to get my yard back in shape!

THEY GO A NEGATIVE RATING FROM ME. I only picked one since the program makes you chose one. They did not treat the lawn properly. When I started I had a small area where nutsedge grass was growing that I needed to get under control. I now have it throughout my entire lawn along with other weed patches. I was promised sod to replace the area where they let the weeds get out of control. They came and killed allt he weeds in that area ALONG WITH SOME OF MY PLANTS IN THE GARDEN NEXT to weed area. It took them from Spring until October to get the sod installed and then they only layed it on top. I had just had my house pressure washed and they weed wacked the dead weeds which ended up sprayed on the side of my house and window and door. The driveway was also just power washed and now had mud stains on it. Had they done the work back in the spring, I would not have had the damage to the fresh power washed areas. I also ended up with 1/3 of my back yard dying back because of chinch bugs. It took them a week and 1/2 to come back and treat to kill them and the patches grew and grew during that time. The company will not do anything for the dead areas. THEY ALSO WILL NOT GIVE ME BACK ANY MONEY SINCE I PAID FOR THE YEAR IN ADVANCE.

Cons: THEY RUINED MY LAWN

I have an established lawn but was having problems with your normal local weeds and mole crickets and my yard was trying to recover from the tough winter we had this year. I saw a southern green technician in my neighborhood and he seemed knowledgeable and eager to solve my problem so I thought I??d give them a try. Their price was $55 per service and there was the normal promises that they would come back out if there were any issues so I started my treatments in March. After 3 treatments and a few phone calls where they came out and ??spot? treated because the regular yard-wide treatments were not killing the weeds (even the dollar weeds) and the fact that the areas where the mole crickets were destroying my yard were continuing to grow I decided I needed to do something else. Even my yard guy pointed out ??hey look at the difference between your yard and the next door neighbor, there is a distinct line of green/lush lawn vs. my thin/brownish lawn??. So the next time I saw the yard treatment guy for my neighbor over there I asked him to take a look at my yard and let me know what he thought. He came over and went right to one of the bare spots put in his hand and turned over the dirt and showed live mole crickets that were in the dirt. I had him treat the yard that day and within one week the grass was a dark green and within two weeks there were runners starting to move into the bare spots.

Now let??s cover their customer service. I had no issues with them returning my calls or coming out to retreat due to the fact that there was no affect from what they were doing. But today I called and asked for an office manager because I wanted to dispute the last bill I just received for the service which they were obviously not doing. The first person I spoke to would not get me to the office manger without knowing what I wanted, obviously they knew what was coming and had their standard practice for working with dissatisfied customers. She became rude very quickly telling me I was wasting mine and their time if I thought there was any chance that I was not going to have to pay the last bill. I still insisted that I talk with the office manager and she told me ??whatever?? and put me on hold until the person who said she was the office manager ??jackie?? got on the line. I started the conversation telling her who I was and what I wanted and she instantly went into a mode of telling me that:

- Southern Green has over 2,000 customers and if they were not providing good service they would not be in business.
- That I??m not an expert ??Am I?? so how can I say that their service is not good.
- That she??s too busy to be working with me, especially since I??m not a customer anymore.

Started out calling them to just spray for cinch bugs...kept the service for several months and then our yard ended up wtih numerous dead spots and the areas that were not destroyed were covered with weeds. We had to spend additional time and money to get our yard back in order. We made numerous calls to Southern Green to try and get them to correct the mess they had made and could not get a manager to call us back. We cancelled the service and still requested to speak to the manager and was basically told since we were no longer a customer they had no time to deal with us! The customer agents are arrogant and rude! DO NOT HIRE THIS COMPANY ITS NOTHING BUT TROUBLE!!!

Started out with just a few weeeds and ant hills. Called southern Green out to treat for weeeds and insect. Within 6 months ended up with a weeed field. Called SG 2 times and got the same answer " the weeeds and dead spots are due to the winter we had" After 2 more treatment the yard just got worst. Called SG back And got the same song and dance, They also stated that they could do nothing about the weeds in the dead spots in my yard. Told them that I no longer needed they service and they reply with " then we have no need for you"

I just moved into a brand new home and two weeks after living here I wanted to have my yard sprayed since I am in the Navy and it is hard to keep it fertilized myself. I had no problems with my yard prior to having them come out, I just wanted to start a maintenance program to keep my yard green. Well they came out to spray my yard and in two days after spraying I started getting Mushrooms (Fungus) growing all ove rmy yard. So I called to have them come back since they're spray is supose to control fungus, and we we're told that they would have someone out in the next couple days to look at the yard. Also that we were watering to much. Funny I didn't change my watering schedule. Well two weeks had gone by and no-one came by to look at the yard. Called them back and spoke with the owner about the problem and he told me that our Mushroom problem was not his problem. !!!!!!!WARNING!!!!!!! THIS COMPANY IS QUICK TO GET YOUR BUSINESS AND YOUR MONEY BUT THEY DO NOT BACK UP WHAT THEY SELL AND WILL SCREW YOU IN THE LONG RUN!!!!!!!!!

This site required a rating, i would like to give a rating in the negatives if i could.

My grass needed help. The yard was green, however there was an issue with some dandilion growth and invading grubs. i've layed grass at many other homes that i've lived in while i was in the military. So i have a more than average knowledge of lawn maintenance. I wanted southern green to fertilize the yard and spray for chinch grubs. Three months later there is spray marks of dead grass in the two neiboring yards. so i'm sure they aren't happy with me. also the home owners association wont be happy that there is a yard that looks like it's out of the projects in the middle of Julinton creek plantation. I called the company and they stated the standard hard winter statement. as if... The saint augustine grass that i did have in the yard is cold weather hardy. It's not like it was rye grass.

PLEASE IF YOU ARE LUCKY ENOUGH TO COME TO THIS SITE BEFORE YOU SIGN WITH THEM, HEED THE MANY REVIEWS AND GO SOME WHERE ELSE. OR JUST DO IT YOUR SELF WITH A LITTLE BOOK CALLED (THE EVERYTHING LAWN CARE BOOK).

We have had Southern Green for about four months now and they completely destroyed our lawn. Not only did they deadened our grass but our yard is full of weeds. My husband called to request a refund and the rude, potty mouth girl on the other end called him a f-ing a-hole because he requested a refund, also she started talking to him like he was a piece of dirt for even asking such a request. She told him very rudely that he was not going to get a refund. In my opinion they are by far the worst company to treat your lawn. However, we called a sod company because now we are going to have to completely re-sod our yard, the lady told us that the company that she works for has been in business for over sixty years and that she would not recommend not one lawn service company, that they are all horrible people to work with and they ruin your lawn. I agree with her because we never had a problem with our grass dying, just that we wanted to control the weeds, but ever since we called a lawn care service we have never had green grass again. We've tried four different companies with all the same results- weeds and dead grass.
