This is probably the worst experience I have ever had with a residential contractor!
Key points, according to
Anchorage Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
Energy Lake Services' representative:
-
Anchorage Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
has been removed from
Anchorage Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
's list of approved contractors, because they do not adhere to
Anchorage Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
's rules for construction on the lake. don't use them if your project is on Lake
Anchorage Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
or other
Anchorage Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
lake!
- The type of seawall
Anchorage Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
builds - an "A" shaped wall of rip-rap with filter fabric and soil fill behind it - is not permitted by
Anchorage Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
on their lakes.

Chronology:
The contract was signed and 50% deposit check was given on 03.25.14 - "to hold the price of the rock."
After several inquiries, on Saturday, 05.24.14 (week 8) I received a phone call out of the blue that a truck with the first load of rock would arrive in about 5 minutes. One or 2 truckloads per day of rock or dirt were delivered over a number of days..
On Tuesday, 06.04.14 (week 10) two men and a backhoe arrived (unannounced) to start the work. They worked half a day.
Work continued, 2 or 3 days a week typically for 2 to 4 hours a day, though 06.27.14 (week 13).
On Friday, 06.20.14, Mecklenburg Water Quality representatives arrived by boat and told
Anchorage Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
' men to stop work because they did not have the required permits. On Monday, 06.23.14 (week 13), a Mecklenburg Water Quality representative came to my door to tell me that I could be required to do some $15,000 in remediation, since my shoreline was disturbed without permits.
Anchorage Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
' men were working, even though they had been directed not to. Since they were here, I got them and the Water Quality man together and asked them to work out a solution that would not stop the work for a month or more (the time it takes to get the permits) and would not require the remediation. After an hour of phone calls back and forth, it was agreed that
Anchorage Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
could finish their work, remediation would not be required, and
Anchorage Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
would immediately apply for the permits.
On Monday, 06.23.14,
Anchorage Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
said they would be finished on Friday 06.27.14 (week 13) and wanted the final check. I walked the job with the foreman on that Friday and pointed out several substantial areas that were not finished. On Saturday 06.28.14, I received a virulent, ranting voice message from
Anchorage Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
, to which I replied with a text message correcting his stated "facts" and objecting to the unprofessional attitude of his voice message. On Tuesday, 07.01.14 (week 14)
Anchorage Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
called in a much more sane frame of mind and said they would finish the work the next day. They came and did a little work. I again noted the areas that were incomplete, but they insisted they would do no more work.
The rock seawall itself appears to be well built, but there are substantial deficiencies that remain:
- The soil used to fill behind the seawall is full of chunks of rock, many as large as softballs, that would severely damage a lawnmower blade. I spent one very hot day raking the areas to try to remove the worst of the rocks before seeding, but more keep floating to the surface.
- The "finish" grading is irregular, with several areas that pond, etc. The "before" grading sloped gradually down to the seawall. Now it slopes down and then back up to the seawall.
- The soil used is of such poor quality that grass will not grow in it After 6 weeks, the grass I had planted is less than 1/2 inch high, even with daily watering. My budget is depleted for now, but I hope to be able to have a
Anchorage Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
of topsoil spread over the area, graded to the proper slopes.
- The north end of the seawall terminates at a beach. The seawall termination was to match that of my neighbor, which
Anchorage Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
built many years ago. It doesn't.
An overriding problem with
Anchorage Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
is
Anchorage Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
' refusal to communicate with his customers. He has serious anger management issues. He completely failed to keep this client informed of what was going on - trucks, workers and equipment came and went at random times, and didn't showup for days on end. They said they would be finished "tomorrow" and then didn't show up for days. The standard excuse was always the weather, which was usually bogus. The workers were easy to get along with and seemed to know what they were doing, but I don't believe
Anchorage Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
has set foot on the property since we signed the contract. According to his reputation (and Angies' List reviews) he knows how to build seawalls, but I believe his motorsports business is his first priority. His slipshod management and unprofessional conduct make working with him frustratingly difficult.
On Thursday 08.21.14 (week 21), a representative of
Anchorage Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
Energy Lake Services showed up at my door, saying he was reviewing "my" permit application and needed to see the project. He showed me the application, which I had not seen before, and I noted that my signature had been forged twice. He said the project would not have been approved if
Anchorage Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
had applied for the permit before construction, but since it was now complete,
Anchorage Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
would not require me to remove it. I told him that
Anchorage Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
had refused to apply for the permit before starting, and now I knew why.
I am disappointed, to put it mildly, that this project turned out so badly in view of the all-A reviews on Angie's List. I note that the last review was almost 2 years ago, so I can only suppose that Mr.
Anchorage Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
has run things into the ground over that time period.

Liberty was great. Very punctual both at the time of the estimate and service. I requested to have the wall in prior to August and
Anchorage Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
made it happen. The wall came out great. Not only did he suggest to run a drainage pipe (which some other landscapers tried avoiding) but leveled off the rest of my patio so that the
Anchorage Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
of the patio met the earth and reseeded all disturbed areas. I'll
be calling them in the spring for my front yard. I usually forget to leave feedback, but they did such a terrific job, I had to make sure I followed up with a positive one. Can't recommend enough.

does a great job with cutting the lawn and weekly cleanup. They are professional, reliable and conscientious. They are however a bit expensive, but I file this under "you get what you pay for". We have had cheaper service providers with problems.

Their guy (
Anchorage Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
) came out and was very nice and did a good job listening to what I wanted done, but their price was double what I received from other companies. The driveway was quoted at about $28,000 from Kings. I have a quote from a brick paver co for $15,000. Another quote from someone else was $13,900. They were all using unilock pavers. I sent an email and thanked
Anchorage Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
for his time and told him his quote was almost double. He emailed back to say that was unusual but he couldn't do anything about the cost. I wouldn't use them again just because of their prices.

Set up an appointment date and kept it. Said that he would get back to us with an estimate in a couple days and he did just that. Very nice guy, professional, and answered all our questions. Even offered his opinions and advice on the project which were all great.

I have an estimate for a full sea wall replacement with this company.
But I called them back to do some repairs in the meantime until I sell
real estate up north. He looked at job, we discussed, I gave the green
light. Never heard back. I've called them at least twice since and
they don't call back or show any interest in working on my seawall. I
have no idea if they do good work, but NO work is inexcusable. What's
up with that?

This is a copy of the letter I sent to
Anchorage Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
.
Hi
Anchorage Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
and
Anchorage Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
,
We
thought about completing a new seawall and dock for a long time and want
to let you know how glad we are to have chosen
Anchorage Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
.. There
were so many restrictions placed on construction of a seawall by the
County that at one point we worried we would not be able to put in a
seawall. The Rip-Rap wall that you put in not only looks great, is an
environmentally friendly way to protect against erosion, and I am happy
to say we no longer worry about seeing a gator under our bird feeders.
Anchorage Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
, I knew that as soon as I reached you with any questions or
messages, I knew you would follow through. As far as the dock,
Anchorage Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked

you were great and so patient to work with as I kept adding more to the
project, like the extra step and the railing on two sides so
Anchorage Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
would
have something to hold onto when we were out on the dock. Even the
County inspector who came out afterwards remarked on the quality of the
work and materials.
We are really happy with this investment we made to our
property. I would and do recommend you to anyone who is thinking of a
seawall or dock.
Sincerely,
Anchorage Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
