  • A MESSAGE REGARDING OUR SERVICE and COVID-19:

    LawnSavers by nature employs strict safety guidelines in the use of our nutrients, soil-enhancing minerals, weed and pest controls and application procedures at all times.
    The province of Ontario in addition to many provinces and states have designated Pest Control Exterminators as ‘essential services’.  (we dont take this responsibility lightly)

    Our Professional, Ontario-licenced Service Technicians work alone in their own assigned, sanitized-daily service vehicles.  Our service treatments are outside which means we are not in contact with the general public or others during our daily duties as part of our standard operating procedures.

    Our professional and uniformed staff wear protective safety equipment including gloves and eye protection, and keep our selves and our vehicles clean and sanitized as regular daily safety measures. As always, LawnSavers provides your service information/invoice after each visit to our clients through email to reduce paper and also contact.

    Our service normally includes knocking on doors before service  as a courtesy to let our clients know we are on your property and to discuss specific client needs. However, this contact method will be suspended indefinitely during this time.  We will still advise you the day before service by email, and we will also send email reports right after each visit with customized notes and directions (as always). If you would like to talk about service, a friendly Customer Success Representative is just a phone call away.

    Spring turf and tree growth won’t wait, and weeds and insect pests don’t either!  It is important for us to continue timely treatments to promote a thick green and healthy lawn that can fight off pests proactively during the season so you can enjoy your home and outdoor environment.
    Thank you!
