Member says Cincinnati landscaper left sump pump pipe burial unfinished

Member complaint

I hired Berkley Landscaping of Cincinnati to do landscaping work and bury a sump pump pipe. They were always hours late or never showed and didn’t call. They often lied and always had excuses. They told me they had the equipment and knowledge to do the job properly, which was not true.

After four attempts over a monthlong period to do the job, I scheduled a meeting to plan an exit strategy. They never showed. I struggled to get some money back for this job, and after a month of emails, missed deadlines and empty promises, I got $500 back. The total cost for the sump pump job was $750. I want the balance of $250.

Penalty box

Have a complaint?

Our Angie’s List complaint resolution team attempts to mediate 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. Find out more about the Complaint Resolution Process.
