Lawn Doctor Complaints & Reviews

Lawn Doctor unauthorized services

Homeowner has no control with services. They Dump chemicals without authorization and than send you a bill. Use to have call ahead with authorization to plan as have small children and animals, along with weather conditions, etc. They do not follow that and just come. They add all these services and expect payment for them whether you want it or not. Not all treatments are beneficial and should work better with the homeowner. People are pushy and nasty! Sketchy and not satisfied!

    Lawn Doctor fertilization

    Bob and Kristen have zero experience in fertilizing lawns.in fact, they are not even licensed to do lawn applications. I don't think they could even pass the test... Another small business that doesn't care about anything but money...
    There were many red flags after being hired on. They actually hired me on for more money than their "stupervisor" and made me promise not to tell anyone. That kid must be mad. They had 4 employees this year before me, none licensed. They even made me do applications I am not licensed for. Its funny. They hire 10$ 18 year olds to do a job that pays 20$ an hour. They actually make us do 30 lawns a day. There is no way you can do 30 lawns a day and do a good job. Especially unlicensed.
    My work load was so much that I had to pee in a bottle. Even though state and federal regulations require soap and water before using restroom or eating. They don't care. They want to pay 100$ a day for 1700$ of work...
    So I am en ex employee, who was fired, for leaving windows down in truck while spraying 1 of 30 lawns daily. And for not spraying crabgrass. Its funny though. They never sprayed crabgrass at all until September. They will never treat the crabgrass or wild violet. Our work loads are too much. 1 hour a day travel and loading truck leave 7 hours a day work.in that 7 hours Kristen wants you to do 30 lawns and generate 1, 700$. 7 hours time 60 minutes is 420 minutes. 420/30 is 14 minutes. With an average of 5 minutes drive time Kristen wants 4 lawns and 250$ an hour, but only hires teenagers for 10 dollars an hour to keep 240$ an hour.
    Remember people. No one can do a good job on your lawn in nine minutes. Why pay top dollar for cowboys to rush through your lawn...
    My work load was so high I had to pee in a bottle everyday... Then they have the nerve to fire me. Nobody can fertilize and spray 30 lawns a day and do a good job. It is literally impossible.
    Use any company and you will have better results, and cheaper, they might even have time to spray your law... Hersch's, truegreen, even lush lawn. At least lush lawn doesn't charge 250$ an hour to drop off a ten dollar an hour unlicensed worker. I really don't understand how they get away with this. I will be contacting mrad Monday and tell them what is going on...
    I even got assaulted while spraying a lawn. I guess that's ok with them, making 250$ an hour while their employees are attacked... Bob wont even touch a bag of fertilizer without whining. So how the hell is he gonna treat 600 customers unlicensed.
    People like this are horrible people that do not deserve a dime...
    8500$ a week generated, I made 400$ last week.
    I'll be calling this week about their lack of licenses and making me do work I wasn't licensed for.
    They fired me with 2 weeks left in season to get out of paying me my end of year bonus. They aren't gong to hire anyone to replace me. They are going to send David to 30+ lawns a day, without spraying or blowing off a single property...
    Any company will do better because the techs are only required to generate [protected]$ a day... Lawn doctor wants 1, 700$ a day and pays the least of any company, using unlicensed downriver teen agers and charging a premium.

      Lawn Doctor damaged property, no acknowledgment

      I have never been in a position to write such a review, until I unfortunately dealt with Chris Williams, owner of Lawn Doctor in Spokane, WA. As a customer of 3 years, they have provided satisfactory service; until they damaged my property and then they suddenly can't be reached. I was just days away from having a new, walkway project completed when Lawn Doctor came by to do a fertilizer application with both spray and granules. The new steps on this expensive project were made of an extremely porous concrete mixture. The next morning after the application, my beautiful steps had unsightly black stains. I immediately called Lawn Doctor and sent photos to Chris Williams. He responded quickly by sending someone out to clean off the stains. The solution that was applied had no effect on the stains, so I called again, left a message, and sent new updated pictures. I even used a power-washer the next day in an attempt to remove the stains, which also didn't work. From that point on, I did not receive any communications from anyone at Lawn Doctor after making numerous calls and emails. At the end of the second week, I finally received a short email response where Chris said he was looking into it
      the end of the second week, I finally received a short email response where Chris said he was looking into it and should have some answers later that day. That was the last time I have heard anything from him and now it has been more than a month. The stains are still obvious which prevents me from finishing the walkway project without sealing in their stains. I am disgusted by any business, much less the owner who damages a customer's property and walks away without a word or acknowledgement.

        Lawn Doctor lawn doctor decided to cancel my service for no reason

        Lawn Doctor has been servicing my property years before I bought it from the previous owners. I purchased this home in 2015 and took over the current ongoing service of Mosquito guard all the property when this summer I call the office and Was told "oh it says here your service was cancelled"...???
        By whom I responded... by Dave. He'll call you back. I've been waiting for Dave's call for over a month now... anyways I'm spraying the yard myself...$10 bottle gets 3 sprays out of it. Huge savings over the $75 per treatment from Lawn Dr.

          Lawn Doctor accountability/business ethics

          Lawn Doctor advertises "FREE Lawn Care Evaluation"
          However, the truth is that it is NOT FREE !
          When the evaluation is requested, a technician 'services' your lawn without your approval and submits an invoice ! Contacting the franchisee..you are informed the free evaluation ONLY is applicable when you PAY for the first service.

          BEWARE, be VERY CONCERNED about business ethics !!!
