Lawn And Yard Work reviews in Acton


This is the second time we've hired
Acton Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
to treat poison ivy on our property. The first time was six years ago when we first bought the place, when the property was completely covered in the stuff. This time around it was just to treat a few plants that had sprouted recently, and we thought it would be a good idea for him to do a careful check to make sure we weren't missing anything. In both cases, we were so impressed with how professional, friendly, and committed he is. He is a pleasure to have around while he's here, and we feel completely confident that his work is effective and he'll stand behind it 100%. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to any of my friends.

The results were outstanding.

stopped by personally a couple of weeks before the work was done, we walked the grounds and discussed what was needed. I've used
Acton Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
regularly for this service, so we both had a good idea of what the work involved.

crew came within the time period he said, and they did an awesome job, exactly what I wanted. They seem to understand how to do things the right way without needing explicit instructions or direction. All the beds were cleaned and mulched, and looked tidy. The wood chips were put exactly where they were needed--this was a suggestion by
Acton Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
a couple of years ago, and it has been a great way of keeping wetlands weeds from taking over. The lawn areas were raked out and made ready for the growing season. The whole property just looked great, and has continued to look so several weeks after the work was completed.

We have used
Acton Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
for over 5 years now. His crew is reliable, courteous and always leaves the property immaculate. They do both our Fall and Spring cleanups, bark mulching and bed edging in the Spring, and weekly lawn cutting. If I ever I have a question, a phone call to
Acton Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
gets a response within several hours. On several occasions we have used them for putting in new plantings or over-seeding bald spots in our lawn, all with excellent results.

was very responsive all along. Provided an appropriate estimate on the spot in writing along with tentative assignment completion date. Very professional. Unlike most contractors even suggested doing somethings later on to get the most benefit rather than doing it at the time of the request.

A neighbor recommended
Acton Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
to us for routine lawn and yard maintenance. My first contact with
Acton Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
was to have
Acton Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
do the fall yard cleanup (we have lots of oak trees). It took many calls to
Acton Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
before he finally returned our calls. But since he was servicing our neighbors..we decided to go ahead and hire him for the following spring despited the communication issues. For the Spring cleanup I specifically asked
Acton Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
to do a thorough "de-thatching" of the yard since we had a lot of moss growth I wanted raked out. The crew did no de-thatching...but only a light lawn raking. Again it took many repeated phone calls and voice-mail messages to get
Acton Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
to respond to my complaint. He promised to have his crew return and do the de-thatching that I requested. The crew never returned to do any de-thatching or further cleanup. They did however return to do weekly lawn cutting service. I finally left
Acton Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
a voice-mail message that I wanted to terminate his services and I also returned his invoices with written notice to terminate services...yet his crew still continued to show up for several more weeks despite repeated calls. They even sent my new landscape service away once when both arrived the same time. Throughout all this I never received any communication from
Acton Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
except for invoicing of un-authorized work and the spring cleanup that they did un-satisfactory. I finally got a phone call from
Acton Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
acknowledging my request to terminate services...and he still had the nerve to ask for payment of un-authorized lawn service.
Acton Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
had excuses (too much work, over committed to a large project, etc) for his lapse in communication...but I explained that it would only have taken a prompt response to my phone calls to explain his situation rather than no responding at all.

The owner
Acton Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
was easy to get in touch with in early spring for a quote. I hired him to do weekly lawn mowing. But since then I have called 4 times to discuss doing additional work and he has not returned any of my calls in over a month. Recently his workers ran over a flower bed, killing some plants, and he still won''t return my calls.

The company accidentally damaged a pine tree and landscaping bushes along the property line between the two houses while trying to back up their truck into a space that was too small for it. The damage to the landscaping is not the reason I'm writing though.
The reason that compelled me to put a note here is the attitude of the workers and the owner. When I pointed out to the crew that they damaged the bushes, the driver of the truck looked at me and laughed and said "whatever, I'll call the boss man" and laughed as he walked away.
I called the company and left a message on their answering machine. 30 minutes later my doorbell rang, and less than 30 seconds after the bell rang, someone was pounding incessantly, and clearly angrily on my front door. The owner came by and heatedly told me that the bush wasn't mine and I shouldn't be concerned about it. I explained to him that the bush actually was planted with the roots on my property and said I didn't agree with him. The man was extreamly rude to me in his
Acton Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
of voice during the rest of the conversation and then said "I don't need this drama. We'll fix the plant as best we want". I then explained to him how his worker was disrespectful to me. He said he talked to the worker and that "he [the worker] had never talked to me". I said that was not true, and he went to get his employee. As he walked away he mumbled just loud enough for me to hear him swearing and calling me not so nice names.
Apparently the disrespectful employees take their example from their boss.

In February, someone pointed out that about a dozen trees in our yard were dead. We knew that 2 had been hit by lightning over a year earlier, but apparently the lightning killed the roots of another 10 trees causing their demise. The challenge was the location and how to remove the wood from the trees once they were cut down since the plantings, contours of the land and distance from the driveway precluded getting a truck near them and a crane could not reach them.
We had several companies bid on the job. Each company had a different approach. We chose
Acton Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
because they have a small machine to carry the wood that was able to drive up and down the slopes without causing damage to anything important.
They arrived on time, did an excellent job taking down the trees such that they fell without harming our gazebo. They cleaned up well.
The other part of the job that they quoted was to remove trees directly behind our home. The plan (formulated in February)
was to use a crane. In May, however, they realized that the crane would damage our driveway, if the work were done in the warm weather. We appreciate their honesty and postponed that part of the work until next winter.

The provider did an excellent job in performing masonary work - installing walkway and granite step stones in one visit. They relocated the perinneal bushes from the front lawn to the side of the house. They relocated all of them however, left one un-planted into the earth. This perinneal was left on top of the soil for 3-4 weeks. They completely seeded the lawn with the grass seeds and also crush the stump. We were told to wait for 3-4 weeks till grass is 2 inches for further action. We waited ! !
During this 3-4 weeks period, there was no follow up by the provider. Once we saw that the grass was tall enough, we started calling the provider to come and perform the rest of the work i.e., fertilize the lawn, clean the back, mulch etc. It took another week or two when the owner himself showed up. He promised that he would send his workers to finish the rest of the job. Following week, a crew came and mulched the lawn and left. Since then, we have not heard from the provider nor the pending work has been completed. We called the provider once and then decided that we will hire another provider for the rest of the work.
They also did not do a good job in removing the stump as the grass in that section did not grew.
The money was taken in full once he seeded the lawn. The provider does an excellent job but is not punctual and does not commit to his timeline.

The job went extremely well. The two-man crew was careful and showed attention to detail. We discussed the project at the start, and they consulted during the work periods if they had questions. All their work was extremely neat and showed care for quality. We were extremely pleased with the results. If my wife and I had tried to do this ourselves, it would have taken us five times as long and several visits to the hospital. For the labor involved and the quality of the result, the overall price was extremely fair and reasonable.
