I hired a local company to cut my grass, and they offered a service for lawn treatment. I took the service without knowing that they subcontract it to Les Jardins de Brossard. My previous (and many neighbours') experience with J de B on snow removal has been horrible and we have shifted en masse to other providers (strangely enough, they are much better this year with their remaining customers on our street).
As for my lawn, they have managed in a single season to completely ruin it, and when I say completely I mean "completely": I have now nothing but crabgrass and white worms. All they do is spray, no matter what the weather is like (rain or shine) and they never inform you in time of any problems with the lawn. In fact I brought them back 3 times when my grass was still recoverable, until they finally admitted that I had white worms. Each time they came, they just left me a boilerplate note telling me to cut my grass no shorter than 1/2 inch and to not water for one day after treatment. What has this to do with my very specific call to them, I will never know.
My advice: do your own lawn treatment or hire a more responsible company.
