Hopefully I can save someone the issues!
Lets see ….where do I begin, first of all I called Suzye Martin to come out and give me an estimate for weed pulling which she did promptly and said she could start the following Monday after looking at it. I was surprised one could start that quickly (first red flag), I met with Suzye after her crew and her had started the job and she up-sold me into weed-guard and mulch, talking about how great they do it yaddy ya ya. She even explained how they cut nicely around all bushes and plants etc. I figured well lets go for it after she gave me pricing for all of it. She told me to pick up two rolls which I thought was odd and wondered why she wouldn’t just provide it ( second red flag- cant afford to purchase her own supplies), I went ahead and got the two rolls and dropped them off. She later called me after the first day of work and wanted to be paid already, even though the job was not finished (third red flag- no money for operating). I wrote her a check which she wanted made out to her personally and not her business ( fourth red flag) . I gave her the check and she later called me again the next day to say she was all out of weedguard even though I provided what she had told me. I told her I was working and could not pick it up so she did and she ran out again so this time the just proceeded and didn’t put weedguard down in many of my bed areas and covered with mulch as to give the appearance the job was done. I have weedguard not properly installed, overlapping or trimmed all over and not even full coverage. I didn’t know this until later when I saw weeds starting to grow that very week and went and moved mulch, as I expected no weedguard and missing in many areas. I told her it was missing and she said shed take care of it and apologized and said they ran out of weedguard. Hmm, third time running out of weedguard. She said she came and fixed it but ran out of weedguard once again lol She then told me I would need to pay toi have her come again and finish her own job and was very rude about it, I lost my patience at this point. She tells me its not her fault she ran out?? lol I asked whose fault is it if not hers?? She decided to argue and blame it on me for not getting enough etc. Not to mention all of my weeds weren’t removed, she talked herself and her crew up a ton and didn’t do half of what she promised. After i said I was going to turn things over to my attorney she said she would fix it if I provided weeguard I said ok Ill get weedguard , she then back pedals and says have your attorney call me!! WOW! So if you want a scammer and a liar hire Suzye and her crew! Suzye is very unprofessional, obviously doesn’t run a business well at all and over promises with an under delivery! Call her for a half-ass job and a bunch of headache!!
Summary- bill was higher than what she said it would be, didn’t pull all the weeds as agreed, didn’t put weedguard down properly or everywhere as agreed and didn’t trim the weedguard as its overhanging my curbing all over my yard- looks ghetto fabulous!
