Lawn Doctor's roots lead back to the mid-1960s, when friends Bob Magda and Tony Giordano took on the endeavor of reviving uncared-for lawns in their hometown of Matawan, New Jersey. Their local business has since blossomed into a national franchise with more than 500 locations across the United States, each adhering to the mission of enhancing lawns' allure with time-tested techniques, dedicated customer service, and dabs of foundation makeup.Before Lawn Doctor's assiduous staffers unleash expertise on swards, they arrive at the client's home for a complimentary consultation to gauge each lawn's specific needs. Grass gurus can thicken turf with their patented Turf Tamer power seeder and foster healthy growth for grass, trees, and shrubs with fertilizer. Uninvited lawn assailants—such as crickets, ants, and grazing neighbors—shudder at the sight of Lawn Doctor's pest-control experts. The company also helps to preserve Mother Nature's receding hairline with organic lawn treatments and natural, eco-friendly products.

For the technicians of A&A Pest Control, class is always in session. Before donning the company's employee garb, they must pass a rigorous training course that equips them to deal with all manner of insect and rodent issues. The education doesn't end there, though, as the staff constantly researches and tests new methods of pest control, from field-testing new chemicals that reduce ant populations to breeding invisible cats that pounce upon unwelcome mice. Additionally, technicians eschew the one-size-fits-all approach to pest control for more customized service by investigating each building to determine the type of infestation and the best course of action for removal.
