Business Overview

How We Got Started

I chose to work in this industry because I love nature, like to see how plants and everything change in every season; I like to help people to make better decisions on how to maintain a green landscape without too many chemicals or a complete organic solution..

We started in this industry in 2001.

We describe our business as Family owned and operated

I received an immediate response to my request... I liked what he had to say and so I hired him. Too soon to know if the quality will be delivered, but my bet is that it will be excellent. I'd definitely recommend at this point.

Project: Seed a Lawn
Our lawn was an absolute disaster ~ huge brown areas and infested with weeds. Turning Green tested the soil and proceeded with a comprehensive program of rehabilitation for the lawn. Our lawn is now one of the nicest in the neighborhood. They are expert, highly professional, and very fair in their pricing. Their customer service is superior as well. I HIGHLY recommend Turning Green to everyone interested in a superior lawn care company.

Review by in Darien, CT
We hired Turning Green to take care of our lawn for a year (fertilize, seed, aerate, pre/post emergent etc.). Billing was smooth, and Oscar was professional and seem knowledgeable. I can not say the same of the crew who take care of our lawn. We have multiple issues with them: 1) When there is an issue / question, it will take you days (if not weeks) for them to get back to you. Sometimes there is someone there to answer the phone. Other times, you get to a voicemail (which is fine if the message was relayed and followed up on). On almost all instances, it takes multiple calls via email/phone call to get a response. 2) We have a security system pointing to the front of our house, and we do know in general what the quality and level of service we receive from all our vendors is (vs. just guessing). We only check the camera when there seems to be an issue. On one of the service visits, it just seemed the fertilizers / post-emergent was not applied to all areas of our yards. We checked the footage, and we confirmed that the crew only covered 10-20% of the surface areas we agreed to. We timed it. They were at our property for a total of 5 minutes, and charged us $80 for the service. Think about it, it takes a min to unload and load the equipment alone. 3) The last straw came when we are now in early spring (3/30) - literally the second week of non-frozen weather. My lawn is absolutely in the worst shape it has ever been. It's over-run by weeds. We drive to Wilton and Greenwich every day. Without a doubt, our yard is the worst I have seen in all 3 towns. There is not even a remote second. If you see a house that you think "Oh My God! It looks like they haven't taken care of the lawn in decades." - that's mine. And Turning Green has taken care of my lawn for a year (including aeration and power-seeding, and ALL the services they recommend). One can argue a number of things contribute to this (and we haven't done anything differently to our yard btw). But I expect a phone call back when I called twice to them about this same issue. No one even responded. This shows me they neither care about their customers nor is competent in their work. 4) You may think they must be really cheap and you get what you paid for. But no, they cost $80/visit when other providers charge $50. So all in all, given the quality / cost of service, and the customer service, we have to terminate the contract. And I really would not recommend them to anyone else.

Review by in Norwalk, CT
I was disappointed to learn from one of the principles that "pruning" small trees and bushes was NOT one of the services they offered going forward. They did, however, satisfactorily spray my white birches to rid them of a leaf devouring worm...and I might add, in a timely fashion!

Project: Aerate a Lawn
Turning Green greatly exceeded my expectations. If you are going to spend your hard earned money on aerating, dethatching, overseeding and bush trimming call Turning Green.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.



NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
