These clowns "tried" to charge me for 90 bales (while I stood by a front window and counted them taking off 32 bales from the truck). * Yeah. They are CRIMINALS. Another neighbor said the same thing when I told them about these rip-off artists (Aguilar Harvesting & Pinestraw). * DO NOT USE THESE THIEVES. *
They came out recently to spread pine straw in my front yard.

The quality of the pine straw is great! The guy that delivered the bulk walked around the property a double checked where I wanted the pine straw put down. He walked me through how it would go down. The crew that put it down was a little iffy to me. I don't think I got all 300 bails put down. I should have counted them. a few thin spots and I had 100 more put down than the previous year.

Hi decided that I wanted my pinestraw but I couldn't remember which company I had used for my installation the previous year, so I googled "pinestraw Cumming" and came across Aguilar Harvesting & Pinestraw. I called them around noon on a Sunday, there was no answer which I suspected for a Sunday. No more than two minutes later they called me back and were at my home within an hour!! Talk about service!! I requested an installation of approximately 20 bales, but wasn't sure if I might need more, so they brought 30 just in case. The gentleman that did our installation did an excellent job and also cleaned up any pinestraw that landed on our yard or driveway. The pinestraw that they use is beautiful and clean of unwanted debris. I will definitely be using them again next season!

The last two times I have been there and picked up pine straw I told them how many bails I wanted. Each time when I went in to pay for my order and left when I got home each time and unloaded it I had one bail less than I paid for. I was assured each time when I went to my car that I had what I requested. Count your order before you leave.

I have used Aguilar Pinestraw multiple times. I love calling them up and having them show up within 1-2 hours. It's not like I have a "pinestraw emergency"; it is the fact that my erratic schedule is much better suited to last minute planning. They do a great job with installation (much better than our lawn service company). I have had the same crew on each occassion and they have been very nice. Plus, my dog likes them and that says a lot!

Same day...same hour delivery. I spread my own, so I don't know about that service...but in today's busy world...it is really nice to have the pinestraw when you have time to spread it. I am going to enjoy this beautiful December day outside:) I'll come back and modify the review if I find any junk in the bales.

After calling several places, I couldn't believe that no one had same day delivery on pinestraw. The only reason I needed same day delivery was because the place I called the previous day never called me back to confirm delivery. So I was left in a bind and wanted to get pinestraw in my planting beds to prep for the weekend. So, I called the guys at Aguilar and they said they could be there in 30 minutes! They stacked everything neatly (70 bales of pinestraw) exactly where I asked. Perfect service and I will use them again!
