"I can’t say enough nice things about Turf Tamers!! We hire them for snow removal and lawn care for our businesses and they always do such a great job and are very timely! With these big snow storms we’ve had they do nothing but work there tails off trying to keep all there accounts happy and get access to people! We also have hired them to do landscaping and sprinklers and they did a phenomenal job!! We are very happy customers of theirs for the past 4 years!"

"One stop shopping at Turf Tamers I call Mike in the spring and tell him what I want for the year, spring vacuum for boulevard, turn on underground sprinkler system, weekly mowing, edge trimming and blowing grass off sidewalks and driveway, fall clean up, shut down sprinkler system for winter and of course snow removal. Turf Tamers offers convenient reliable top of the line personal service at reasonable prices. One less thing I have to worry about as a senior citizen committed to staying in my house with my beautiful yard that Mike maintains for me."

John and Mary Metz

"I have had the opportunity to have Mike and Turf Tamers work on my yard for the past two years and have found him to provide first rate service and to provide it with a smile. I have no doubt that thanks to Mike, I have the best groomed and maintained lawn in my neighborhood. Mike is conscientious, hard-working and friendly. With Mike, I never have to ask him to come over or to tell him he is mowing the lawn to frequently. Mike checks the lawn and knows how frequently he needs to be by, and all summer and fall long, just like clockwork, Mike is there getting the job done right. I have also had Mike help with setting up and shutting down sprinklers and am happy with this service as well. Another important item to note is that last spring we noticed serious vole damage to parts of the yard. Mike was diligent in coming up with a recommendation to restore our lawn – and it worked. I strongly recommend Mike and Turf Tamers. I know that I will continue to rely on Turf Tamers."

"Mike provides outstanding services for me at Evergreen Square, both in the summer with mowing and upkeep of the grounds, and with snow removal in the winter. He does his work in a timely manner, so that I have no calls from tenants wondering when the parking lot will be plowed. Mike also alert to the property and has reported to me when there have been water coming out of one unit, and when there has been graffiti painted on the exterior walls of the premises. Since I am not at the premises every day, I appreciate his calls about problems, so that I can address the situations as soon as possible. I would recommend to anyone looking for good service, in all of the areas he has listed on his brochure, that they contact Mike."
