Estimate for front clearly stated 6 hours labor plus 2 more if mulching materials were supplied.
I supplied mulch and weed block and had informed
Bowdoinham Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
ahead of time of no need for any new edging. Existing was totally intact and as new, so no edging installation was necessary.
Despite a quick response and initial visit it took 15 days to get an estimate and 51 days wait for work to be done which did contribute to weed growth and trimming needs in the overgrown beds.
3 workers started work at 9:15., were off property approximately 45 mins. to 1 hr., and completed work at 3PM. They were polite, detailed in final cleanup and even helped me unload mulch from my truck.
This however added up to 17 hours of man labor, front yard only, which of course ate up both of the 8 hr. pre-paids I had purchased and was supposed to be a $1000.00 value.
I was very upset as I could not reconcile my mind to the prescribed work in a fairly small contained area taking 17 man hours to complete. Is almost $30 per hr. labor the current ongoing rate for weed pulling, trimming and mulching? And, original estimate was for 8 hours. The work took exactly DOUBLE the estimated time thus double costs. As a Sr. citizen living on SS and unable to perform this type of work myself, every coupon offer, discount, special etc. are precious to me. After this incident, I felt very wronged and taken advantage of.
I communicated back and forth several times (email because I like the written record) with
Bowdoinham Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
about this. Each time he had a reason that *I* misinterpreted the proposal or that it was more work than he thought or things were or were not included although he did offer to move the stone,

the weed block that was MISSED at no charge the next time they came to work.
Frustrated by the back and forth, and now after no offer of refund or other resolution, I cancelled the end of month scheduled back yard work, told
Bowdoinham Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
I will not be buying any additional deals in order to get that work performed and cut ties.
don't want to damage anyone's business, good intentions or hard work with complaining but do hope others are smarter than I was in understanding
Bowdoinham Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
's estimates.
Cut and paste from actual estimate:
"For all work initially discussed with out materials and haul off would be around 32 man hours. This would include; Front flower beds, side stone walkway, all pruning, establishment of tree rings, pruning of all shrubs and trees. Application of dirt for beds and low spots. Materials would be; 4 yards of mulch, 5 yards of topsoil, 4 pieces of aluminum edging and weed fabric. You can purchase materials or we can provide them for you.
Front flower bed; prune, weed, remove and transfer stone 6 hours Install two yards of mulch $140.00 (material and labor) or you can use as final 2 hours of first initial coupon ( materials not included) 4 pieces of metal edging $320.00 (material and labor)."

But yet -
Bowdoinham Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
doesn't service North Bend. I am so sad and disappointed because I was really looking forward to having a professional who understands and can work with a landscape for dogs. This isn't the first time we've been rejected solely because we live in North Bend - and I've left reviews for them as well. It's such a shame because we are willing to pay the money and we live in a development with 200+ other houses who are always asking for recommendations for good landscapers.
Shame on you for dismissing us simply because we live in North Bend. Do your research, it's 30 minutes from Seattle. Not 3 hours.

They arrived on time, were friendly and helpful with the design I had in mind. Their suggestions made my house look like a winter wonderland. I also rented the lights and equipment, eliminating the storage problem. I will use them this year, but will use their design. They completed the job on time and under budget.

We have used
Bowdoinham Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
for approximately 10 years. Weekly, they used to mow the lawn, trim the hedges and edging. When needed, we would have them bring in pine bark to re-mulch the areas that needed it. They were very reasonable
and showed up every week.
About two years ago, after an extremely cold winter (for Florida), our
Bowdoinham Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
shrubs were damaged -- did not look good at all.
We told them to stop trimming, as we were going to let the shrubs grow and recover their growth. Now they are very full and looking good, but over grown. Mr.
Bowdoinham Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
has been trimming when he could.
When we ordered the mulch this Spring, I asked
Bowdoinham Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
to have the men start trimming our hedges and shrubs again. I also mentioned we had a few things to be taken care of - a hedge that was partially dead and needed to be replaced, a Gardenia plant that we hoped they could move, and a low spot in the side yard that we would like taken care of. He was going to give us an estimate.
We received the mulch, but we never heard from
Bowdoinham Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
about the rest of the items. They never started trimming the hedges again. I called him but did not get a call back. After a few more calls -- leaving messages --
Bowdoinham Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
finally called me. He came out to the house and we went over the things to be done. He was very receptive; said he would write up an estimate and call me later that day. I never heard from him again. (although, they continued to mow the lawn). I called him four or five times after that and left messages, but never did get any call until last week when I called to tell him that this was their final week -- I also sent them an email telling them we did not want their services anymore and that we had hired someone else.
Within minutes of that last call and the email,
Bowdoinham Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
called back and talked to Mr.
Bowdoinham Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
. Mainly, his message was that
he "forgot".

After a long discussion he told me I could do the project of installing the French drains myself at a great cost savings which was very nice of him. I did complete the job with great results. Thanks

They were very professional. They responded quickly with an estimate and it was clear what they intended to do. They also asked pertinent questions to get the extent of work right. Very responsive and interactive. I liked the internet proposal and response system, as I need clarity which is not always available with something as loose as lot care. ...More /> I thought the price was high but I need it done and done thoroughly with no fuss and it wasn't that high per hour. They gave me a week time table and were able to work me in within a two working of days. The job was
Bowdoinham Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
and they came back over two days at the end of the day after bigger jobs were done but there was not enough time to start new jobs on occupied lots (this is for a vacant lot). They contacted before any project creep (as part of the job was hourly) and when they contacted me they had already made sure the work was acceptable. It was important to me that I knew when they were there and was able to come by and see progress.
I recommend them for getting it done exactly as said and with knowledge of what would be involved. The price was high but it just needed to be done and costs more not to have it done or have it done incorrectly. I will use them in the future and recommend them highly.

All the work was done as described and then some.
Bowdoinham Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
demonstrated attention to detail and esthetics that was apparent in the workmanship of the flagstone walkways as well as the rest of the work. The job took 5 days. The driveway was left each evening in such a way that I was always able to park in the driveway itself, not on the street overnight. Each evening, the work area was left in an orderly way. At the end of the job, everything was left neat and clean.
I have no complaints and plan on using

They are very professional and do a nice job! The customer service department is very friendly. The guys that cut the lawn are quick and efficient and make sure that the job is done well. Our lawn looks great! I think the pricing is fair, we have a very hilly/difficult lawn to cut and I feel the price is reasonable.

I've used
Bowdoinham Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
for years. They provide basic yard maintenance services for me every week which includes mowing, weeding, pruning, leaf blowing and yard waste removal. They are efficient, reasonable, polite, trustworthy and show up every Monday. Occasionally, I'll enlist them to tackle a yard project such as clearing out the wooded area of my yard.
