Mapleleaf Landscaping Inc. Verbal Abuse appleton, Wisconsin
This fall we were verbally abused by owner, Cal Staple, of Mapleleaf Landscaping. We had concerns of cracked soil and dead grass after he landscaped our yard the previous spring. The grass started to fill in nicely the first part of the summer, but as summer continued the soil started to create deep cracks, and the new growth started to turn brown or not grow at all. After a huge mistake on our part, we over-fertilized an area and started to take out some of grass and noticed the soil fill he supposedly put in our landscaping was mostly composed of clay fill. A ball of clay was formed and held it's shape for days. With this in mind, and of our concern about the deep cracking of the soil, dead grass, and pooling of water in our backyard we decided to call him. He refused my husband's call, but after I called and complained he came over unexpectedly. He walked up to my car and said are you the wife, and I said yes. And then he started right away...he said that he wasn't going to fix our f***ing mistake (EVEN THOUGH REPEATEDLY WE SAID THIS WASN'T HIS FAULT - the part we over-fertilized), but kept on redirecting him to the clay ball I made from the clay we took out of the ground, and the deep cracking, dead grass, regrading issues...he said YOU ARE A BUNCH OF F***ING IDIOTS AND ARE DUMB AND DUMBERER . He said, I could tell that from the very first time I met you that you were A BUNCH OF LIBERAL DEMOCRATS AND THAT YOU ARE RUINING IT FOR THE REST OF US. At one point, he leaned into my husband, and threatened him by saying, SO WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?. He obviously hated us for no reason, and under no circumstance would I recommend this vile and abusive person to anyone. We reported this to the Better Business Bureau and he denied all allegations, of course.
