“Dowco has done a great job for my turf. I used their fertilization program one year then switched to somebody else. I came back to Dowco after unsatisfactory results. I did everything Dowco recommended including the renovation package - double aeration and over-seeding etc. in the fall. I could really tell a difference in the lawn from the end of last year to the end of this year! The way that the Dowco crews kept coming back out, checking, walking, and sprinkling the site with more grass seed was impressive. I was concerned that the drought we had in August would affect our lawn more than it did, but Dowco kept it looking perfect, thick, green, and beautiful.
