Groupon Deal - hard to schedule, great work

I am not a "car detail" kind of person. This was the first detail job on my mini-van in the 6 years I've had it with two babies/toddlers/kids. The owner did the job himself, and it looks great. Scheduling was a pain and I think I lucked out on a rainy day he sent his workers home and did the few cars himself. He said it was the dirtiest car he'd ever done, but he didn't take any short-cuts and worked for 3 hours to clean my car. He only got paid $35 of the $70 I paid to Groupon, but still did the job right. I would use him again, though I must admit I would think twice based on reviews I've seen here for his employees' work. Having met the owner, I would guess that if you called and complained about his crew's work, he'd make it right.

No service, rude answering service

Kudzu offered us this business as "close to " our city. Sadly, not close enough. Their answering service was rude and difficult to hear, the company never returned my call, and it turns out they don't service our area (around Decatur).

Cheap price, cheap service

I guess you get what you pay for. Corey seemed great at first. Very friendly, very low price. I contracted with him to install sod and flagstone in my front yard. The first sign of trouble was when he showed up with no bobcat. He had let me believe that he would be clearing/grading with a bobcat as most landscape services do. When arrived with tillers, he assured me that would get the job done. I said fine. Little did I know that this plan would mean I would end up with a lawn of crabgrass instead of bremuda! I also discovered that the stones weren't laid right. They aren't spaced correctly for stride and they have settled unevenly. Some rock, others are just not level. I called Corey back the day after he finished the work. That was a month ago. I have called him repeatedly. He never answers the phone. He has returned my calls twice and set up appointments to come and fix the lawn. He has stood me up both times - no show, no call. If you are looking for the cheapest way to get sod laid, Corey is probably your guy. If you are looking for quality work or average to good customer service, look elsewhere. I'll be sure to update this review if he ever shows up to fix the problems.

Amazing service - Very worth the money!

I have had Aimee come out twice to help me figure out my yard. It was a total neglected mess when we bought the house. She came out and patiently helped me identify plants and weeds, made suggestions for what to keep and how to take care of it as well as how to get rid of the rest. I had her come back a second time to help me design my front yard. She listened to what I wanted and asked great questions to help me figure out what would meet my needs. Then she suggested an overall design and specific plants (many to choose from) for each area. She followed up with a written report of all the information we had discussed. Her fee was very reasonable and will save me $100s in wasted plants that wouldn't have worked. Now I know just what to buy and how to plant it for a beautiful yard. I can build it piece by piece as budget and time allow and I can always send her an email with a follow-up question. I get compliments on my yard all the time and I could never have done it without her!

Great if you live near Canton

I had my back yard re-done with many plants transplanted and drainage system and sod installed. Kelly and his crew were great. They were a joy to have around, they did all I asked and more. They were the only company I found willing to do all the transplants and they did a great job. The problem came when they had gone and I had some problems with the sod. They came back and resolved them all, but it took a long time. I live so far away from Canton that it was difficult for them to schedule a return visit. For anyone in their part of town, I would highly recommend them. For those of us who live further away, I'd say look for someone more local that will be more available to fix problems. Having said that, I am totally happy with my back yard now and Kelly went above and beyond to make sure I was satisfied.
