Purchased a Angie's list deal for aerating and over seeding of lawn. Contacted MT lawncare to set a date for work plus paid extra for additional square footage. Tried to set a date when I would be home but MT could not schedule it, said no one needed to be there. Crew did a good job aerating but could only see seed on bare spots along the edges (I checked many spots in the lawn but did not see any seed). Contacted MT and was told it was seeded before aeration so you would not be able to see any seeds- guess I will have to take their word for it since I was not there to monitor the work, but I feel that the over seeding was pretty skimpy.

Overall the only things that look good are the front bushes. Dozens of small river pebble were left in the yard, as were large stones, which prevented the new grass seed from growing. Grass seed was planted in a 12X3 foot section of my rose bush border inside of the backyard fence, which Dave would not remove along with the many stones he dug up around the fence posts while spreading the dirt. He simply sprayed it with Roundup and left it to die, as he did many, many other weeds. The backyard is 110 feet wide and 75 feet deep. He took dirt filled with sunflower seeds from around the bird feeder and buried it by the new addition, which the raccoons continually dug up. The seed was of poor quality. Owners of three landscaping businesses have told me the seed used was commercial seed, the kind they use along the highway. Today what little grass was planted with the many weeds in the seed is dead, because it was never fertilized. By the time he told me to fertilize it, was mid-June.

I understand that this is a busy time of year for all landscapers. I called several other landscapers and no one bothered to call me back. Fortunately, Benito's did and I met with the estimator and they cleaned up my yard, planted seed and sod. I couldn't be happier. The workers are so nice and work so hard. The finished result is wonderful. If you have patience to wait a day or two for a call back, they're worth the wait.

The weather resulted in 3 rescheduled visits, but he did not communicate in a timely fashion that he was not coming for one of those visits. Then he simply seemed to have forgotten about having set up times to come 2 or 3 times. And then he did not appear to aerate the backyard which was listed on our estimate as a task. He has not to date returned our email about this issue, even though he stressed contacting him with any questions.

I worked primarily with Roberto Diaz, but had communication with others at the business as well. They were all very responsive. Roberto provided a quote in a timely fashion and they were able to fit me into their schedule relatively quickly. Initially the work was supposed to be done on a Thursday, but due to equipment problems, the project was delayed a day. The entire project was completed in one day as promised. They graded my lot (25X160), laid additional soil and seeded the lot. I was not able to be home to oversee the project but I was satisfied with the quality of the work.

Took several meetings with them to get estimate. Did not seed enough and the covering of what they did seed, did not seem to help. They did stabilize the covering very well; but again it did not help for the seed to take effect. Communication with supervisor was delayed and limited. Found a broken glass on front storm door and their response was contradictory, depending on who you talked to. Tried to add additional cost; however, they removed the additional charges when confronted. The overall job was done reasonably well, with the exception of the grass seeding; still have several bare spots. Clean up of the debris was exceptional. Job took too long in my opinion.

Recent Review: I was looking for lawn care companies who would come out and manage our turf on an annual basis. Our turf is in a bad state and various areas are either just thinning out or are very patchy. We recently also did some seeding and sodding and so we wanted to be sure we hire the right company. Mark who is the owner, was spot on from the very beginning. He was very accomodating of the appointment time and even agreed to come out on a Sunday to discuss and view my yard. When most companies wanted to just see the house using google maps and give pricing, Mark dedicated 1 hour of his time on a Sunday. Talk about customer service ! I explained and showed Mark the various areas in our yard and the problems we are facing. I also showed him various areas where seeding/sodding has been done. He listned very patiently to all my problems and requirements. Based on my questions and concerns Mark understood that I am looking for detailed explanation of the work and every answer he gave clearly depicted that. He explained in great detail exactly what needs to be done, when it should be done and why. He also suggested various things which I can do on my end to maintain the lawn better. He was very upfront and honest about what is practically achievable given my lawn conditions. It is rare to find a company who spends so much time detailing out all the work for their client. Obviously, I went ahead and signed him up for annual maintainence. The applications are yet to start but I am quite positive they would produce the same spectacular results. I will do another review when the services have been performed and the results are visible.
