My neighbor and I hired Greenwood in April to lay sod which included top soil and grading. We each paid over $1,500 for the job. The top soil wasn't even top soil but shredded mulch. I assumed I'd be getting our sifted Georgia clay soil. There were 2 different batches of Bermuda put down and they mixed the batches on both our lawns. It looked like a chess board. After 2 weeks we started noticing weeds. We called them to inquire and asked if this was normal. "Oh yeah, occasionally you get some weeds" they responded. After 5 weeks, both of our front lawns were over 95% weeds. After repeated calls and then a few more to the owners of the company, we finally got them to commit to spraying for weeds after the sod was established. After the weed treatment, it only got worse from there. Patches of dead yellow grass and mostly all of the weeds remained. Then asked them to come back out and replace some of the sod that didn't take originally. What we got was subpar replacement grass that wasn't nearly as nice as the original grass (minus the weeds) and tons of sand thrown all over the yard in piles that was barely spread throughout the yard. It can't get any worse than this now. They have totally wasted my money, my time and I've lost my patience with this incompetent company. I'm 2 seconds short of filing a suit in small claims court for my money back. Will never ever use them or recommend them.

I had several issues with them including their version of weeding (spraying Roundup and leaving the dead weeds in my bed) and saying that I hadn't paid despite me being able to produce cleared checks. In addition, when they found out I wrote a negative review online, they refused to do any additional service for my residence despite having an agreement with my subdivision's HOA.

The Greenwood Group sprayed pesticide on my yard without permission or authorization. My Miniature Dachshund was outside. They never rang the bell or knocked which if they did would found they were at wrong house. Total disregard for the health of my dog. When manager came out, offered no help to remove and left saying "I haven't killed a dog yet". Is this the company you want around your animals???

This is THE BEST lawn care service ever! I have used others in the past and never quite saw the results we were expecting. Our lawn is weed free and healthy. The technician is always pleasant and it's comforting knowing that the same person will service our lawn each time. He knows what it needs and adjusts the application accordingly. I would definitely suggest Greenwood Group to others and have already!

I guess these guys have a long history with commercial lawn maintenance and are just starting to enter the residential service market. I'm glad they did! Unlike my previous lawn service (not the other one I've reviewed here on Kudzu; they just did fertilizer and weed control for me and were excellent at that), the Greenwood Group mowers don't chop my fescue grass too short on the hillside. They did an amazing job trimming back the hedges that I had let get out of control. They seem very easy to communicate with, they take suggestions and LISTEN, and the end result has been remarkable thusfar. I highly recommend these guys!

Plain and simple: they come when they say they will, they do what they say the will do. My lawn is more lush than it's ever been. I'm home on Saturday's now with my family. The Greenwood Group is an outstanding value and I recommend their service to anyone.
