Landscaping Company - Waltham, MA
Please do not do business with this company. They do not know how to do the work they contract for. I asked them to repair a front walk. It cracked within two weeks of completion. Even worse, it now collects water in a puddle at the bottom of the stairs. In the winter this became a small, dangerous ice rink. Edgar said he would come and fix it many times. That was one year ago. He has never shown up. They are grifters.
This company is comprised a bunch of unprofessional grifters. I had already scheduled with another company to grind an enormous tree stump that takes up a large portion of my front yard and prevents grass and plants from growing. The process involves using a stump grinder to grind the stump 8-12" inches below grade (there was an unsightly mound around the stump, and I wanted a flat level front yard). I explained to Edgar that the other company was going to grind the stump down to 8-12" below its current grade, using a stump grinder. Edgar said he would do the same thing for $200 less. I asked him, "do you have the stump grinding equipment? If not, I already have the other company scheduled to remove the stump." Edgar assured me that he did. Because I'd also hired Edgar to do other work, I told him he could remove the stump, too. But Edgar showed up with only a small chain saw, he did not fully remove the stump, and he re- hid the stump with a 3" mound of dirt. Now, nothing but weeds grows over that stump. He did not properly prepare my soil by rototilling and removing all the rocks and debris from prior addition/construction job. He did not level or amend my soil. He thinly scattered some grass seeds, missing large portions of my yard. I began with an uneven rocky pitted weed filled yard and I was left with an uneven rocky pitted weed filled yard after paying Edgar almost $7 thousand dollars. I also asked Edgar to identify a few trees and shrubs in my yard. Edgar is a landscaper who cannot identify plants....he did not know what anything is. Yet he recommends pesticides without knowing what is growing in my yard. That is very unprofessional. You are supposed to know what type of flora is growing before you target it with pesticides. Lastly, Edgar's job was to include a small retaining wall to direct water away from my basement. He was also supposed to do some tree trimming. But, he disappeared 3 months ago, and never returned my calls. If I could give this company a negative 5 rating, I would.
Outstanding service and very professional scheduling
D&R are the best at what they do, and are always on time and a reliable company. Will recommend to my family and friends.
