Lawn care company issues refund in Raleigh area
A salesperson from Scotts Lawn Service’s Morrisville, North Carolina, location came to my door offering a late spring fertilizer and weed control treatment for $25 if I agreed to use them right then, so I did.
I called them later to ask when they’d perform the service, and they said sometime in the next two days, but couldn’t give a specific day or time.
They charged me $30 instead of the agreed-on price and did the summer treatment rather than the late spring one I expected.
I called the salesperson, who said he’d talk to his manager and get back to me, but he never did.
The weed control didn’t work, because I have more weeds in my yard than before.
I canceled the service. I want a $5 refund, since we agreed to $25.

Have a complaint?
Our Angie’s List complaint resolution team attempts to resolve disputes between members and service providers. During this process, three outcomes can happen: Penalty Box, Resolved or Stalemate. Companies that don’t respond to a member’s complaint will be placed in the Penalty Box until they respond. A case becomes Resolved if a company addresses the complaint to the member’s satisfaction, or it becomes a Stalemate if the provider responds, but the company and the member can’t reach an agreement.
