Reviews for Parkville Landscapers

Rated Review by Jim M.
"I went to Cripple Creek Rock Company to look at materials for building a retaining wall to prevent an erosion issue in my front yard. At first I was going to do the work myself... but I've already got too many projects and too little time, so I asked them for a landscape contractor recommendation.
Landscaping was the name of the contractor that they recommended highly for completing this type of work.
Being an Angie's List member, obviously the first thing I did was go home and check them out. Quite a few C's, D's and F's -- uh oh, not good. It took another trip back to Cripple Creek, and yet another strong recommendation by their staff, before I decided to bite the bullet and give
a try.
As it turned out, I made the right choice. First, after hearing that I wanted the stone retaining wall to coordinate as closely as possible with the stonework on the front of my house, he recommended a different material than what I had chosen. I went back to Cripple Creek (a third time) to look at his recommended material, and it was indeed a much better match, and no significant difference in price.
With an unseasonably warm March, an opportunity presented itself to get the job done earlier than I had thought. Called
, and set-up a date and time for the installation. He and his employees were here when promised, and after walking through the job once again to make sure that we were on the same page, they got started. Three days later, the job was done, and it was done right -- not just in appearance, but in proper construction technique for a retaining wall. While this job required a lot of earth-moving, they finished off the job properly with mesh underlay to help hold the upper soil until grass grows back in, and leveled everything out properly both above and below the new wall.
One thing to be aware of: he is definitely into the practice of suggestive upselling. He's persuasive but not pushy, and I didn't mind at all - the guy's in business and he has every right to try to suggest other ways to make an extra buck. I even had him provide a quote for the flagstone pathway he was recommending, but in the end, I just had him do the retaining wall work to stay within my budget.
In summary, while other Angie's List members may have had difficulties in the past, my own experience in the present with
and his employees at
Landscaping was an "all A's" experience. I would call him back to perform other work for me (perhaps that flagstone pathway someday) without hesitation and with confidence.

came out very quickly, asked what we needed to get done and came back 2 days later (over the weekend!) with a detailed proposal and we hired him. The start of the work however was postponed a few times without us ever receiving a phone call - simply nobody showed up. When I called to complain I was assured that somebody would come the next day. From then on for 3 or 4 days workers showed up - usually between 10:30AM/11AM, did some work, took a lunch break, did some work and left (except for the first day) before 3PM. Then the temperatures dipped and
called me that the project could not be completed before spring because of the weather. He would collect the surplus plants/equipment the next day and complete the work in March. More than a month later he had not collected his things and only when I called again did he come and collected his things (I also told him I was not interested in further business). The bill I received was fair and covered the work done.

"My first call was answered by voice mail and it took 2 days for

Hacker to call back. On the day of the appointment (8AM on a Saturday - this was

's suggestion) I received a phone call from
Parkville Landscapers Provider Name Locked
at 8:20AM during which he stated that he could not make it and would like to reschedule for that afternoon. That same afternoon
Parkville Landscapers Provider Name Locked
came, we discussed the work I wanted to have done and
Parkville Landscapers Provider Name Locked
gave recommendations. He seemed very knowledgeable and good to work with and promised that he would send a written proposal a week later. By now it is 3 weeks later and I have not received a written proposal, no phone call or email. While the late return call and the late cancellation of the early morning appointment should have given me a hint of this company's lack of reliability, the fact that I have not heard anything in 3 weeks finally convinced me not to do any business with them in the future. Note: the competition gave me a written proposal 1 day later!
"Schedule was critical for this project and was made part of the contract. Work started two weeks late from starting date promised. Other schedule delays due to hot weather temperatures and rain. Intermediate return dates promised by contractor were not met/no show/no call. Daily calls and surprise visits to the company's office were required. From contract signing to completion was promised to be four to five weeks, (inclusive of one to two week start delay.) The project took over two months to complete. Very frustrating experience overall. Price was very good for work performed. Crew was very cooperative when they were at project site. They even did a little additional work at cost or gratis."
"It was excellent. He has a lot of experience. I had plans, and he improved on them. He did an excellent job. It was on time. Prices were more than reasonable."
"I have them on a maintenance plan. I have found their design and installation work professional. I have wonder comments about my yard."
"They came out within a couple of hours of my original call and met with me to determine what needed to be done. They gave me a rough estimate of $3200 in labor and about a week's worth of work. They stated they could start the next day. We walked through what I wanted done, and they began work the next day. The first day they were on time and got an amazing amount of work done! Which was good because their hourly rate was somewhat high, at $40/hour per person. But they assured me that it was worth it, because of the work they could get done. Each day they got slower and slower, and yet the hourly rate remained the same. At the end of a week, everything was in a state of partially done, but not one thing was finished. They accidentally cut the cable line, while digging in one bed, so we were without cable for almost a week before the service personnel for the cable company could get out to repair the line. I ended up spending almost $3000 on plants, mulch, rock, etc. and their estimates of what was needed in materials was never correct, and I ended up having to reorder additional materials. There was $1200 in plants alone, and they never watered so many died before ever getting into the ground. And they didn't water after planting, so I'm struggling now to save the plants they did plant.
Some days they wouldn't show up at all, and then at the end of the day they would text message me to say they had other things going on but would be there bright and early at 6 am the next day -- but wouldn't show up until almost 10 am! They took other jobs and left mine unfinished while they went to work on the other jobs. Finally, when I was over double the original quote in just labor - I told them they were done, that I just couldn't afford to pay them anymore, and they weren't worth what they were charging. They left things unfinished, tore up my yard, never finished or started several of the things I originally hired them to do. I've now hired a second company to come in and finish what they started. The mulch they put in the flowerbeds is not raked smooth, and looks terrible. They used my credit card when they needed supplies, and when looking at the receipts, they actually purchased shovels and other miscellaneous using my card!
Basically, these guys --

-- promise you the world. And they're VERY good at telling you what you want to hear. But their work and their actions tell a different story. don't be fooled! Buyer beware. They want to work by the hour and get paid the same day -- they basically have no incentive to complete the job timely, and they make more money by taking longer than they tell you! I truly feel like a food for falling for their BS. don't let it happen to you!
