Lawn And Yard Work reviews in Fort Worth
However, the mulch job - which was the primary reason he was contracted was simply not done properly at all for the following reasons.
1) The amount of mulch spread on the beds was overall less than 1/2". This offered minimal protection, and would do nothing to prevent re-introduction of weeds (which has happened).
2) They did not have enough mulch to cover all the agreed upon areas. They used our surplus garden supplies (cottonseed hulls, manuare and peat moss) to 'stretch and cover' the remaing beds. Not good at all.
3) His estimation of what '3 loads' will cover, is far short. 1 Load (or yard) is supposed to be 27 cubic feet of mulch. The 3 loads he put on were contained in approximately 15 5
After the installation, I called and talked to him about the poor job on the mulch, and the 'lack' of any depth. He was very responsive, and said he would see what he could do. He indicated that he might have some 'extra' mulch available (from other jobs) that he could bring back over the next week or two. It has now been 5+ weeks, and no more calls and certainly no more mulch.
The day after he finished spreading the mulc, my wife and I purchased 45 additional 3 cubic foot bags of quality mulch from Lowe's and spread it ourselves.
I also am not at all happy with the quality of the actual mulch that he put on our yard. He talked my wife into using black mulch (colored) on the yard. My own personal opinion was that he suggested that not for the 'look', but rather it blends in with the black earth in the beds, so the light covering would blend back in.
Five weeks later, I have no further mulch; new weeds that need to be tended to, and no feedback from '

(One small thing, his nepphew reprogrammed my sprinkler schedule wrong, but no biggy, I took care of that)
My only complaint was the re-sodding of my yard. They didn't rake it first, so it's all lumpy, and they brought BARELY enough to do the job, such that we were tearing up pieces to fininsh. Some of it is now dying, but will hopefully come back. So A+ on the sprinkler repair, and B- on sod.
My husband had Tex-Roots mow our lawn twice in 2012 and then I spoke with the owner about how we didn't need that done anymore, but we would be more interested in some landscaping. He came out to the house and gave a few suggestions, but I never heard from him again. Until today.
I first started using him when my son got his first job and didn't have time to mow.
The Texas heat is just too much for me to endure much work outside, so I call
Their crews are very professional.
One day I was working from home and I could see them work in the front yard. They ran over a piece of pager sending "confetti" all over the yard. When the crew member finished mowing he meticulously picked up every bit of torn paper.
The only negative I can mention is that several years ago, I had them take on my lawn fertilization and weed control. (Previously I had Tru-Green but I thought they were too expensive.) I didn't think they were doing as good a job controlling the weeds as Tru-Green was, so I went back to Tru-Green.
I would definitely recommend
