Evergreen Landscaping Lawn Care / Sold bad sod
Purchased landscaping work on May 17, 2009 from Mr. Dontre Jones with a completion date of June 10, 2009. Work to be completed was landscaping in front of house, seed and aerate back yard, rock under deck, and sod part of back yard with a cost of $3550.00 for all work. The portion of the yard that we wanted sod on was quoted around $2000.00 for that part alone. Mr. Jones workers arrived sometime in the 1st week of June and within 2 complete days had the work completed. At the time work was complete but within 1 day of sod being laid in backyard it was starting to wilt. By second and third day brown areas appeared. Sod was watered twice a day but just got worse. After a week a call was placed to Mr. Jones asking about the sod's condition with a reply that it was not dead to just keep watering. So another week passed with worsening of sod condition and yet we called Mr. Jones again requesting that he come to look at the sod himself because we thought it was dead seeing as how all was brown except a couple of spots. Mr. Jones finally came to look at the sod and accused us of not watering it, but he was informed that we had been and could get statements from neighbors stating such. Then he quickly stated that it was not dead that the sun had burn it up. We ask Mr. Jones what could be done to fix our now brown dead backyard and he said he would come back within the next few days to put fertilizer on it. Low and behold he never returned. So today July 5, 2009 we placed yet another call to Mr. Jones about the sod, requesting that he come back out to look at the dead grass. He stated that he would but that he was out of town for the next 2 weeks and when he got back he would come put fertilizer on our dead grass and seed and aerate it. I did not pay him $2000.00 to have that portion seeded and aerated. I wanted sod that was nice and green and so I deserve. All Payments were made to Mr. Jones in the form of a check. He has been paid in full for his work. I just want my yard to look nice.
