So how well does the Fiesta programs work?

Here is a photo of a lawn that was full of dandelions when Turf King Lawn Care started a program in 2011

So it has been treated for 3 years, 2011, 2012, 2013. In 2011 and 2012, we only did 2 weed treatments per year, In 2013 we started doing 4 treatments per year. So this site has had 8 treatments for weeds over 3 years.

Before we started, the lawn was chock full of dandelions- much like the lawn at the neighbouring yard at the top of the photo.

So after 3 years of treatment, it's not perfect but it is no longer a sea of yellow

I'd say there is a huge difference. This lawn has also been on our 3 fertilizer program for 2011 and 2012

In 2013 we used our once a season fertilizer here.

Here is another photo of a different area- again with very few dandelions.

Recent Letter from a Lawn Care Client

To Turf King

Dear Sir

I want to express my opinion on one of your workers; I called you, the worker came when he said he would, (on time), he was down to earth, spoke in terms I could understand, he was courteous & helpful. I would certainly recommend him.He helped me with my lawn. His name is Mark, a real keeper.

Thank you  Irene H


Thanks for the Great Lawn Care- Turf King

And Thank You to all of our great customers, clients who we are so pleased to have the privilege to serve with our professional caring lawn care service

Thank you for your email.  I'm not quite sure what treatments I would need for my lawn.  I've attached a few pictures for your review. There are definitely weeds, as well as little blue/purple flowers (growing in the middle of the lawn) and then just patches with little to no grass. Can you please advise if the prices you previously sent me would still be relevant to fix this? 
Thank you again for your time/help!

Thanks for the photos
The lawn seems to have some bare patches and a lot of difficult weeds.
The purple blue flowered weeds are difficult to eradicate with the organic products- they were hard with the good stuff. 
Renovating by sodding would seem to be a quick fix, but I have talked to people who replaced the sod because of creeping charlie and because of the seed and/or roots left in the soil, the weed was still there - or came back - a few months after the sodding.
It is likely that you had some insect problems in the past- grubs, chinch bugs or both. The insects damage the lawn- then it is much easier for the weeds to get a hold when the lawn is thinned out.
First step is to get a lawn care program that includes a process to get some grass back so that the weeds have less opportunity to grow.
There are several ways to seed a lawn.
For us we usually use aeration/overseeding.
We would suggest the following lawn care program - three fertilizers, 4 weed treatments including a blanket treatment, aeration/overseeding.
That would be the basics, Then keep an eye on the lawn to see if insects develop during the summer, late summer. Treatments may be need to be added and paid for at that time
