I called to setup an appt with Grasshopper (
) and he got back with me about a 4 days later. We set a time to meet and he never showed up, no call or heads up. I decided to move on then two days later he calls and asks if I still need lawn care performed. I say yes, we had an appt and you didn't show up. He apologized and we set up another time.
After the walkdown we discussed "his" labor rate of $30/hr, a little high for general labor but was assured of the high quality of his work. I asked him how much time we estimated to do the work and he answered three hours. Then we rounded it up to $100 for the job and I agreed. We scheduled a date and time for the cleanup. He no showed (2nd time) and called a couple days later to reschedule. He no showed again (3rd time), in hindsight I should have called and canceled with him altogether but I did not.
After not hearing anything for another couple days I called
and left a message. The number for the business is just a machine and all you can do is leave messages. He returned my call and assured me he would show up on to do the work. He did show up today and "performed" the tasks.
I was there when he and two laborers arrived, asked if I could be of assistance and he said no.I hung around to let them get started and then left. I came home an hour later and they were gone. So he spent approx. 1 hr at my house performing actual work. I called the number and left a message asking him to call me back and said the job was not to my satisfaction and I was curious on how he charged me for three hours.
Instead of calling me back, he came back to my home and "discussed" things with my wife. We has extremely rude to her and acted in a bullying manner about the work. She had just gotten home and didn't have any idea what he was talking about or that I had called him to discuss the work.
, that is why I asked you to call me!!
He then called me and was a complete jerk, kept saying your wife is happy, I am happy whats your problem. I told him to go look at the area on the west side of the house in the back yard by the shed. None of that area was addressed and still covered in leaves. While on the phone he said I am looking at it right now and it's fine. I asked are you in the front yard or back, he said front. I then repeated myself, i.e. the backyard/west side by the shed. He said okay and was going to hang up. I asked him to stay on the phone so there was not anymore confusion about the area. He found the side of the house he forgot :)
The other issue was billing and something that was more of a communication error. I work in construction and contracting, when someone quotes you an hourly rate and a time frame, that is it. If your rate is $30/hr and you work three hours than it's 3x30=$90. Well, that is not how
bills I found out... Apparently his rate is $30/hr along with every other laborer on the job. So the fact that he did the work in less than an hour doesn't matter cause he had two laborers with him.
So, you can see why I was confused when I showed up and hour later and no one was there. I told him he may want to be more clear on how he bills in the future. His response was "I have been doing this for 20 years and never had a problem." At that point I quit trying to talk to the man. He continued to "educate" me on how he was right and that he should have charged me more time cause of the drive to the dump..... REALLY, I am not making this up.
So let's use "
math" to calculate the cost of the trip to the dump 3(guys) x $30/hr x 1hr=$90/hr - - - Just making a point here. FYI
-a companies hourly rate is just that, an hourly rate. If the rate increases cause you bring help then you should make that clear during the biding process, as this is non-standard practice. If my sprinkler guy had used this method, I would have a 10K sprinkler system at my house, but it was only 2K even though five guys performed the work.
Bottom line is Grasshopper performed average work and it took a high amount of effort on my part to get it done. I will not use them again due to the lack of professionalism and ability to listen and follow directions (scope of work).

I was very pleased with the work that C & K did for me.
was prompt in coming out to my home and going over the needs that we discussed together. She prepared a very clear, itemized estimate, which I appreciated because I was able to do a couple of items myself, thereby saving some of the cost.
was quite easy to work with. She returned my calls in a timely fashion and answered specific questions I had.
and his crew arrived punctually on the day they were to begin, explained what they would be doing first, and got immediately to work. The work was finished in a day and a half. They were careful and left everything clean and tidy.
I really was impressed with the quality of the work that C & K provided, and I feel comfortable that the drainage problems have been corrected and will not cause problems going forward. I would not hesitate to recommend them to others needing similar work done. In my experience, I believe C & K Consulting, Inc. to be a professional and highly ethical company. It was a pleasure to work with them.

I purchased a deal through Angie's List, and they came out when we had
agreed, were very polite and worked hard for the hours I had purchased.
The lawn looks great, although my trees haven't finished dropping all
their leaves yet. I've asked them if they would come back again in a
few weeks to finish getting all the leaves up, and they said yes.

We were very pleased with the work and the quality of the product from Emerald. The sod has now been in almost 2 months and looks great. The team was flexible in scheduling and it was easy to get a hold of someone for questions or various needs. The team finished the yard quickly after they arrive - very efficient! The only complaint is that they recommend you order 10% more than you need, where other companies we spoke with said they would automatically bring 10% more, so we ended up spending a few hundered dollars more than we needed, as we did the measuring ourselves and grossly overestimated.

AMAZING! My husband and I are now proud of our lawn again. Great quality work all the way around. The edging makes a big difference.
I was worried about going with a service because I had heard the horror stories from my neighbors about large equipment damaging their property. When

team showed up, there were many workers using smaller mowers all over the yard. I didn't worry at all. And the clipping of grass next to the fence - they did an OUTSTANDING job. Very happy with this company.

Overall working with
Arvada Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
,
Arvada Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
, and their crew was a true privilege and a pleasure. To put it bluntly, my backyard was probably a landscaper's nightmare. In addition, it's pretty darn big. There was several years worth of weed growth that had to be cleared, rock (everywhere) that had to be removed, and a lot of old sod that had to be cut out. There was one issue with the initial bid because it was done in the winter when there was no growth in the yard so the team was not aware they'd need a sod cutter - sadly it came alive due to the early warm weather (but not in the way you want your yard to come alive). However, we came to a reasonable compromise on the additional money which, considering the amount of work it required, I believe was fair.

The crew did such a great job clearing the yard the first day, we asked them to complete some additional work on the second day for which the price was also extremely fair considering the short notice and yet,
Arvada Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
still managed to complete our yard on-time. There's a certain level of anxiety while you wait for the outcome of something like this (this is the first time we have ever paid a contractor to come work on our home for a large job like this), but I could not have been more pleased to see it all come together. Even though everything was done efficiently and on time it was also done right. The team spent hours prepping and hand tilling my yard area before laying sod to make sure the soil was in the appropriate condition. Hours!

The quality of the sod that was laid is obvious and
