Destroyed my yard!
After having my front yard resodded, I contacted Matthew's Tree Service to have a stump removed as the company doing the work could not remove it. Noting the delicate nature of the new sod and calling their office to remind them, I made sure that Matthews was aware of my concerns. The removal was not to occur until late in the afternoon when I got home from work. At around noon, I received a call from my son indicating the man was at my house and I called the Tree Service and spoke to Christina. I was assured it would be fine but I reminded her of the delicacy of the new sod. Instead of using a hand machine, the employee used machinery he had never used before, drove it over my new lawn, got stuck and damaged the yard. Not only did they create gaps between the pieces of sod, they destroyed a 20 year old shurb framing my front walk and left wood chips over 1/3 of my new sod. The sod he stacked up was not put back down. I spent 2.5 hours blowing, raking, relaying the sod and hosing woodchips. While they did send someone to replace the bush, I was assured the yard would be resodded. I received a "good luck with my new yard" message a few days later with a disclaimer that they thought the original landscaper had done a poor job - contradicitng what the person who had come out and replaced the bush had told me. My plan is to have someone do the work and take them to small claims court.
