Lawn And Yard Work Reviews in Antioch


The cleanup was okay but seemed to take a lot longer and cost way more than I thought it should. I didn't think the y did a great job in the neatness arena and left my burn pile a huge mess, depositing absolutely everything on it including plastic and weed control material and dirt. Ridiculous. There were a couple of things I asked the crew to do that never got done. The contact was really gruff and I had a really difficult time trying to understand him through his thick accent. I was glad the work was done but pretty disappointed at the end result.
- Kimberly G.

I contacted
's Landscaping to do some general yard cleanup and hedge trimming/maintenance.
He got back to me a day later coming out to meet me and look over my yard to discuss what I wanted done.
During our discussion he mentioned a few other items he could also take care of for me that seemed very reasonably priced so included them on the list.
The plan was for him and his crew of 3 to arrive a few days before my son's graduation party we were having that weekend.
They were scheduled to arrive a day earlier but said his previous job took longer than expected.
I didnt mind since he would finish my work in plenty of time before the grad party.
They were to weed &
all planting beds, spread new mulch, trim hedges.
As well as raise up some (10) Dioblo Ninebark hedges on the side of my house (
believed my Ninebarks were not doing well because they were set too deep in the ground at the root line)
And add a pop-up style drain in the ground that would get the gutter water farther away from my foundation.
Bottom line: My yard looked like a model home when they were finished and I and my wife were very pleased with all the work performed.
However, one item that was not done was the hedge trimming which
said should not be completed at that time since it was middle of summer and we were enduring extremely hot weather. (I had actually been thinking the same)
The general cleanup was $125 (Looked great)
All the Mulch was $150 (wouldve taken me days to do it all)
Labor for the Ninebarks was $50
The pop-up drain, which looks and works perfectly, was $80
Total $405.
I plan to use
's again later this fall.

It took 6 weeks for the work to be done, we were initially told 3 weeks from contract date. Was a week where it rained heavily, part of the reason for the delay, but still ridiculously long time. We were home at time of service so we saw them do everything. I am convinced that power raking was never done, my thatch is still very thick. Aeration was satisfactory. Fill-in of sunken area fine, but quality of seed bad, still waiting for grass to fill in, we will end up seeding again in the fall. Downspout was installed & run under sidewalk, however it just ends underground, as opposed to running it to the surface and installing a pop-up cap on it. As a result, water backs up and flys out of the end where it connects to the gutter whenever it rains hard. Defeats the purpose having it. It was 95 degrees out and weed & feed couldn't be done, but we were charged for it. Several phone calls were made to correct, but ended up calling the credit card company to reverse the charges. Bad, bad, bad!

They did a fantastic job - from working with

I had used Tru Green previously for aeration but had no intention of using them again this year due to a recent change in my financial situation.
In May of this year the local branch of the company called my work number to inform me of pending service, then subsequently executed a lawn treatment which I did NOT authorize, all when I was on vacation. When I called upon my return several days later to enquire about the unauthorized service, I was assured that someone would call me to discuss the issue. I was never called. When I went online to express my unhappiness with the unauthorized service and lack of follow-up, I again did not receive a response. When I was set a survey about my experience I was assured on completion that, based on my responses, someone would contact me. Again, no response.
Despite the company’s complete apathy I began to pay off the bill in increments each month – whatever I could afford when money was available. Regardless of my efforts and a paltry $48 remaining balance, the company sent me to a collection agency.
Tru Green is unscrupulous and does not deserve your business.

Excellent mowing services - consisently good, always on time, VERY professional, but extrmely expensive - over $100 per week for mowing less than an acre with a very large ranch home and many areas that are not mowed.

After reading a few reviews here and researching other companies prior we called
Antioch Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
. Page came out for a quote, and was the contact during the job too. She was very friendly and made every effort to communicate the details of the job when we had questions. The contract process was a little challenging to get everything spelled out but no real issues. Part of doing business.

The work crew was on time every day and as far as we could tell, very diligent. There was a foreman on the job the whole time doing the measurements and leveling, cutting the bricks properly, and overseeing the detail work. He was also friendly. By the end we were happy with the patio and were told to water the lawn twice daily for 4-5 weeks for everything to grow back.

Unfortunately about 1/3 of the seeded area remained as bare soil (enough to be a problem with dogs running around the back yard and tracking stuff in the house). Probably due to uneven seeding. In the end we had to buy more seed and several bags of soil and re-do the bare areas. It's just now filling in, which is why the review is being done now. In total it was about $100 more expense and 3 hours (driving to Lowe's + yard work) to finish things off. Not a major problem but something you expect won't be necessary.

Overall though good quality paver workmanship, nice people, and competitively priced compared to other reputable landscapers in the area. Will report back if there is any frost heave effects over the winter / spring but I don't anticipate any.
I would recommend this company for modest scale paver jobs (not sure how well they would handle very large or complex jobs); just make sure you have the lawn repair part of things handled before the job starts; you might want to go with sod if it makes sense for your yard and you know someone will water it thoroughly every day. Less likely to deal with the weeds, rocks, bare spots.

UPDATE: Almost a year on, the patio survived the first winter without any heaving issues. There have been some rust / oxidation spots that have appeared on some bricks. Not sure where it comes from, but guessing there are some metallic bits in the pavers (which they don't manufacture), that get exposed to the elements. Leaves rust red spots about the size of a silver dollar. Some minor gaps in the "grout" have been found also... we used the more expensive kind to "seal it off", so not sure that extra expense is worth it... but in a couple places I've had to pull grass shoots out in the central area of the patio, and all along the

, where the grout material apparently didn't work its way in as they swept / spread it around. Otherwise everything OK for now.

UPDATE 2: Since the prior update we have had to set up 2 warranty repairs for the patio. In both cases the "grout-like" material that is fused between the bricks, deteriorated between many of the bricks near the
Antioch Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
of the patio. Before long the brings started to break away from the rest of the patio and slumped towards the mounding between the patio and the lawn. The cause was different in each case (best guess was standing water in one case and erosion from underneath in the other), but repairs were required to maintain the integrity of the patio. Both times Page sent a crew out the same week, so the responsiveness was good. However I came to find out the materials they used to create the "grout" are materials they no longer used, which doesn't reassure me much. I suspect this type of degradation will continue in random spots but hopefully not. Will post more updates after the 2013-2014 winter and spring.
