Lawn treatment company suggestions?

overgrown grass

Michele asks via the Twitter:

Hi, I could use a recco for a trusted local contractor for lawn fertilization & treatment; *not* mowing or clean-up. I had planned to contact Lawn Dawg, but they've sold to TruGreen, and I've heard anecdotally the service has declined. Any suggestions? Thanks!

We'll add an angle our own to Michele's question: We're curious if there are any companies around here that specialize in "green" treatment for lawns -- for example, maybe they'll come out and run the aerator over the lawn and the spread compost or something similar.*

Got a suggestion for Michele? Please share! And a sentence or two about why you're recommending a service can be helpful.

* Because we're really not looking forward to doing that ourselves. (Also: Mow high. And let go of the monoculture.)

We have used Green Thumb Lawn Care for many years at our home in Guilderland. They are very reliable and our lawn always looks great.

Here's some additional information - Organic Lawncare did a big clean up of our front and back yards for us recently and did a great job! We also signed up for an organic fertilizer treatment that they will be applying in 7 treatments. They explained what each treatment is and why they recommend it. I am hopeful it will be much much better than True Green or LawnDogs. Organic Lawncare will do aeration and dethatching and other organic lawn care chores too, but I was told that usually happens in the fall so we have not done it yet.
