"In June, 2013, after looking at reviews and getting three estimates, I chose Mr. Nelius's group, Solo Landscaping, to perform some landscaping on our house" we had just renovated and moved into. Both the front and back yard needed slightly leveling and then sod placement. Mr. Nelius suggested Zoysia Palisade for the back yard and Bermuda for the front yard, which we went with. We discussed the need to level certain parts of the yard to prevent puddling. I also asked Mr. Nelius if it would be beneficial for me to do any prep work myself - like killing weed grass or removing rocks/stones - he said they would do all the ground prep. Mr. Nelius was very prompt - he responded to my initial request for a quote immediately and came out to give a quote within days. Within two weeks, he had completed the work - it all being done in about a half a day. He was available by phone and returned calls within the day, and did most of his business by email so that quotes were in writing - also responding within a business day. His quote was not the least expensive for the work, but very close - so I chose him based on his promptness and eagerness to do the work. On the day of the work, he and his crew arrived when he said they would. They went to work on the front yard, and Mr. Nelius was working with them. They worked very hard and quickly, removing and old fence post, leveling the yard appropriately, and tilling the yard adequately. I left for work as they were beginning to prep the back yard. Mr. Nelius also left around that time, leaving the work to his crew. When I saw the completed work later in the day, I was a little disappointed, but thought it would improve when the grass had time to take and grow a bit. The parts that I was unhappy with: - the quality of Bermuda sod was poor - it was full of nut grass weed that I spent the entire summer try to control. It was from the sod itself, not the prepped ground - it grew immediately from the sod itself and not at the seams. With pre-emerge over the winter, I was able to better control it this second summer. - In the side yard, they mixed Bermuda and Zoysia, which still looks terrible. However, the part of the work that most frustrated me (and proved I wasted my money) was the quality of work in the back yard. The yard had not been prepped at all for the sod, and none of the leveling was done. Most of the sod was laid over barely-tilled ground with no concern about drainage or depth of soil. This had been specifically discussed in our initial discussions. Any amount of rain would cause pooling of water in large puddles in the middle of the yard. Other parts of the yard had such poor prep that the grass never really established itself - I later found out why. I spent most of the summer trying to nurse the back yard to life to no avail. After laying dormant over the winter, very little of the Zoysia made it to the second summer. This second summer, my back yard was virtually a mud pit and couldn't be used by my kids if it had rained at all recently. Late in the summer, I decided to rent a tiller and try to level the yard myself - so for $40, I got a small tiller from Home Depot and tilled up about 1/3 of the yard in an hour. I found that many areas of the yard had bricks and slabs of concrete less than 1/2" below the surface, which is why the grass never established in those areas. Using just my hands and a landscaping rake, I removed quite a few stones/bricks/blocks and leveled the worst part of the yard in less than 2 hours. I purchased a
of fresh-cut Zoysia sod from Nature's Earth Products on Summer Ave and laid the sod myself in less than an hour. Except for one tiny area that wasn't getting irrigation well, the grass is well established and draining very well - no puddles. I still need to fix another 1/3 of the yard, but I corrected the worst areas and decided to build a play area over another bad part. The yard is usable once again. Before I decided to re-do the yard myself, I tried to contact Mr. Nelius several times by phone and email in late summer of 2013 and again in
of this year (2014.) My calls and emails were not returned, so I contacted him through his website. Only after I advised him that I planned on writing an Angie's List review did he reply and said his email had changed. I explained my problem with the back yard and asked if he would be willing to at least offer advice or help on how to correct the problem. I sent lots of pictures, both of the problems seen within days of his work and the resulting mud pit a year later. He never replied. Below are copies of the emails. In summary, I believe Mr. Nelius's business is based on volume and not quality. His price was very fair and he was very fast in getting the job done. He was very professional and easy to work with until there was a problem. I do believe that his crew was responsible for the poor quality work when left unsupervised by him - I wonder if it would have been better (like the front yard) if he had been present. For my part, I should have persisted in getting him to come back the first summer of the work, though I hoped a season to get established would help the problems. I also should have written down more details about our agreement to prep and level the yard before simply laying down the sod. ===== Subject: Re: invoice Date: May 31, 2014 at 3:23:52 PM CDT To:
Nelius Mr. Nelius, You put sod down at our house last June, and we’ve frankly been very disappointed with the back yard. The yard was not properly leveled or prepped as we had discussed, so the sod did not root well, and there are many low areas that collect water. Most of the yard is now a big mud pit. The front yard - which was in worse shape - was better prepared and looks great. You
’t likely remember, but you were personally present for the entire work on the front yard, but were not for most of the back yard work. I suspect the quality of work was substantially different. I’ve attached pictures of the back yard - the first is from last
, and the second from a few weeks ago (the playground was just built this month.) I’m hoping you will offer any suggestions or would be willing to help correct his problem. ===== On Jul 15, 2014, at 12:43 PM, wrote: Mr. Nelius, I generally write reviews for services I find on Angie’s List, such as your landscaping. But to be fair, I wanted to give you another opportunity to address this problem before I submit anything. Please let me know if you have any thoughts on my email below.

"Because of the harsh winter Memphis experienced in 2013/2014, L & L irrigation noticed our back-flow pipe was busted, which prevented him from performing the" necessary maintenance at that time. He was able to give me a contact for a plumber to service the pipe, which I used and all worked out well with him, too. Once the back-flow pipe was repaired, L & L was able to come back to complete the service on our irrigation system, which was an easy, no hassle process. I will gladly use L & L for all of our irrigation needs.

I was not sure if the report for the Backflow would be sent to the city I will have to call them. The tech couldn't answer the question. In the past the back flow

would disassemble the unit and inspect for wear, this test was seemingly less thorough. And the tech would send my report for me, unsure if this will happen yet. I may have to adjust the sprinklers myself later as not sure if the time level or days of watering are adequate or overkill???

First call to company- I spoke with receptionist and was told I would recieve call from designer to schedule appointment. Never got a call. I called back 2 weeks later (because Angie's reviews were good). Finally got scheduled for appointment. Unfortunately, designer no-showed for first appointment. Apologized later, and said there was a family emergency. But that definitely set the

. Future dealings went well. Designer rescheduled, met with me, creating design for backyard, and gave a timely quote for the project.
The bid was similar to bid I recieved from a different company, and based on those initial experiences described above, I went with the other company.

is great, he called me back the day I left him a voicemail and then showed up on the day he said he would and called when on the way. Great guy, reasonable price for the work and he had his daughter working with him the day he came to my house. I like a family owned business. I would recommend him to anyone.

My sprinkler line was damaged when my flower beds were being redone. I knew it was a

job because I had seen it done before but was leery of trying to fix the line myself. The first plumber I called said the line fix would be $150. The second plumber I called usually does by back flow tesing. He told me they could fix it but they would charge $95 for the service charge. He didn't want me to have to spend that kind of money (very nice of him) and gave me Mr.

Clifft's name and number. Mr. Clifft said he could fix it for $30 and could come out the next day. He was punctual, friendly and worked fast. He repaired the line then noticed I had a busted sprinkler head when we were testing the repaired line. He replced the broken sprinkler head in less than 5 minutes and asked if there was anything else I wanted him to look at. I then had him adjust the direction of another sprinkler head's spray. Total pricce $40.00. Very nice guy. I will use him for all my sprinkler/ irrigation system repairs.

The system is working just fine. We have used it two summers now and it is working properly. There are no problems with water leakage or back ups in the system. My landscaper hired and paid them for me. I was not at home so I never met them but they left no mess or even any signs that any work was even done.

, the owner is a super nice guy. I signed up for his services right away when I met with him. However, I would not recommend them at all. The sprinklers are fine it s the dead shrubs that are the problem. I was told if any died when they were planted they would replace them free of charge. They are not doing well and many have died. No one will come out to take care of this. I feel they don't stand by their word. Even though the main part which was the sprinklers is fine I still would not use them again.
