I contracted with Champion Turf in July 07 to start work Sept 07.. Owner took my business while license was suspended. Gave excuse after excuse for why project was not being started. Work started in OCT. Kept promising completion, by Next week ,by Thanksgiving,by the 1st of Jan 08 etc. He regularly would have me waiting for crew arrival and no one would show. He hired illegal immigrants who did know enough english to answer any questions when left unsupervised on the job. Several times found where they urinated in my yard against my house. He misled how items would installed and size of plants. Made Guarentee's he would not put in writing nor had he any intention of honoring. He took on construction, electrical, and masonary tasks in my project that he were not licensed to perform nor qualified to perform with expertise. Over all I like the way my yard looks now-but after 9 months (yes they finished in MAY 08!),I am left angry and frustrated with an unpainted patio extention that they refused to paint using professionals. Now,only 9 months after they showed up the last time -the artificial turf is coming up and apart in my dog run! I was guarenteed they secured it so my dogs could not pull it up. I found they used standard galvanized 4 inch nails to secure it and Duct tape for the seems. Turf is supposed to be their specialty! Also, irrigation was not buried but put under landscape rock...now is leaking in many places. Wiring lighting was also not bured.
