I took a chance in hiring this guy to replace my sod. After giving him a 50% deposit to start the job He canceled 4 appointments before even starting the job. Almost 3 weeks later after threats of calling my Credit Card Company he came and pulled up The sod and told me he would be back to lay the sod. Another 3 weeks later and more canceled appointments, he laid 1 pallet???? I paid for 3 pallets..... I finally hired another company and never got my money back....... SO unprofessionally 407-618-9443

Here are 5 reasons I would not recommend the business. 1. 2/3 day job never completed and went well over 1 months time in duration. Received multiple excuses as to why work was not being completed. 2. Poor quality of work all around including flower beds, pavers, decorative rocks, irrigation and French Drain. 3. Lack of professionalism and communication. 4. Received upfront retainer and did not complete work or refund money. 5. One employee came to my house and asked my wife for money to get home because Mr. Fosgate had not paid him and terminated him for asking about his money... After many weeks of horrible service and excuses I decided to cut my loses and move on. I was told I would received the money I put down and still have not heard anything back... Working with this company was a huge mistake.

Ed and his crew did a nice job on my backyard. Communication from him left something to be desired (wouldn't return most texts which is his preferred method of communication) I would have to call a few hours later/next day to even get him to answer questions. I would suggest not giving him anything in full up front for a "deal", it seems that he works better/faster when you still have money to give him (did great with my patio, paid everything else and it took over 2 weeks to get my flowers). All in all I would use him again because his work is well done, but wouldn't pay him up front for any extras/deals.

I initially hired Laurence Fosgate to do a travertine patio. I was impressed with his knowledge, his very nice and proffesional staff of installers, and the fact the color and quiality of the travertine was exceptional. After the 600 sq. ft. patio was complete I was more than happy for them to go ahead and build trellises, and a pergola which transformed my backyard. They are a small company with a lot of experience here in central Florida and I would recommend them to my friends without hesitation. Thanks again Ed.

I contracted Laurence E Fosgate for a total landscaping job for a new back yard and Sod in November of 2010. I paid him after he installed some of the landscaping, in good faith that he'd complete the job. It is now JUNE 2011 and I still do not have sod, there are still bags of debris that he collected sitting in my yard, and he will not return any calls or emails. I have tried calling almost weekly since the beginning of the year. This man works on word of mouth so my word is "DO NOT USE HIM!!" I'm out a great deal of money and still do not have a yard."

Recently we hired the firm of Laurence E fosgate to do a cpmplete makeover of our downtown Orlando home. The work included installing two travertine paver patios, a water feature, landscaping, and a new lawn with zoysia grass. Ed's artistic vision took the results beyond what we imagined. The whole experience from start to finish was a real treat. I would highly recommend Ed Fosgate and his crew to anyone.
