  1. Aeratorman,
    Thank you for the great work you did on our front and rear lawns. After 3 weeks the lawns came back to life and instead of that ugly brown we now have deep green beautiful lawns, just as if they were brand new. Our yards have never looked better. Larry Daly

    • Dear Mr. Daly,
      Thank you so much for your kind words. We take pride in doing a job well done, and we know that our happy clients are our biggest assets! We look forward to helping you with other projects in the future. As always, we appreciate your business; and your referrals!

  2. Dear Mr. Towle,
    Thank you for making contact with Aeratorman. I will call you this week to set-up an no charge appointment for your aeration. We are in Pleasant Hill most weekends, so we should be able to find a time that works for you. We look forward to working with you!

  3. Blair and his crew completely re-landscaped our front yard. Not really knowing what we wanted, I asked Blair for some ideas. My wife and I knew immediately that he had an artistic eye and we gave him free range to “make it look good” They removed our dead lawn and replaced it with a beautiful tiered rock wall and drought tolerant landscaping. What a job. Simply spectacular! The neighbors have been commenting on it ever since! Wanting their job to look as good as possible, they also corrected a few issues I didn’t expect. Brandy responds quickly to phone calls and their price is very reasonable. I highly recommend Aeratorman if you are looking for quality work at a reasonable price. Thank you for a great job!

    • Dear Frank,

      Thanks for making contact with Aeratorman. Before I can schedule a no-charge consult for an aeration quote, I need to verify you’re in our service area. What city are you in? In general, the cost for front and back aeration is $85-95 for lawns up to 1000 square feet, but we like to customize pricing by looking at the project before scheduling. If you approve the pricing at the time of consult, we can usually do the aeration the same day. I hope that helps!

  6. Had a note from Blair left (6/5) when he came by to water plants and spray repellant. Don’t worry about spraying because I did it two weeks ago after seeing a deer trying to nibble a plant. I have it calendered to do once a month. Deer are always loitering around. Looks like the plants are doing well.

    • Dear Mrs. Heath,
      Thanks for letting us know. Follow-up is part of our service, so if you have any questions now or later, regarding the project, please contact our office at 925.709.5296.

  7. Can you give me the names of the plants you used? I would like to look them up on the internet so I can properly care for them? They are growing good….so far only one did not make it.
