I hired William Scott Pruitt Gastonia Landscaping. This man misled me, because I have paid thousands of dollars and he hasn’t even started the job. I contacted this man couple of times, but each time I heard fake excuses and he tried to persuade me that he didn’t get all the permits. I am shocked with such services and wanted to share my reviews about this company. Don’t hire them, because it is real waste of money.

    Boy this company has a terrible reputation, I am glad we were warned off of them, but wanted to share this with others who may consider using them. Gastonia Landscaping and William Scott Pruitt have bad reviews plastered all over the place and have a terrible rating (an F) with the BBB, which now has them on alert. The positive reviews on here have been put on here by the owner and his wife along with a service they hired. Apparently the owner is being investigated by the state of NC for operating without permits and insurance, along with many instances of fraud on his part. scam report and some other reviews have a long list of his convictions in NC and other states - many fraud charges, etc. Not surprising at all, it seems he rips people off left and right.

    I spoke with someone on here who used them and true to form Pruitt and Ryan came and gave them an estimate, got a payment on the work, started on the work then stopped returning calls after the money was paid, and the "weather" was not the reason for the work not getting done. They didnt pay the subcontractors to do the work after taking the money.Co compound things, Scott's crazy nutjob wife Dana Lewis Pruitt with Jean Wells Travel, who may be schizophrenic from the sound of things, cursed the person out over the phone when the customer demanded the job be done - what unmedicated sociopath curses someone out for asking a job be completed after money has been paid? She apparently does this a lot, and is part of the ongoing fraud (also being sued in Gaston Co). She is probably tired of bailing Scott out of jail (he was arrested on December 23 in Gaston Co for fraud, by the way).

    Apparently the local news through Jason Stoogenke is running an ongoing series on Mr. Pruitt and this company as he is in some hot water and being sued by multiple people for theft and fraud. He also was jailed for theft from Lowe's when working for them as a project manager in KY - served a year and a half. I suggest anyone on here thinking about using them run a search on Mr. Pruitt through the NC Offenders website, it is littered with his fraud and theft convictions. Anyway, word to the wise on anyone thinking about using this company - they do not do the work at all, and will rip you off. Do not use them.
