Crenshaw Landscaping Holy Mackeral, Batman Shelton Washington
*REBUTTAL Owner of company: Always 2 sides to a story.
I had a landscaping project, wanting to remove 6 large stumps, 8 small stumps and move some dirt from our side yard. I called Crenshaw Landscaping to make an appointment with someone to come out and look at my project. Randy Crenshaw, owner, came out and I explained to him what I needed done. He called me back a few days later with a price of $2,300.00 and I asked him when could he start. Start date was set up for the 16th of June, with the project being completed on the 18th of June. On the 16th of June, the tractor operator showed up to start moving dirt away from the stumps. This tractor barely had enough power to move the dirt around, much less pull out the stumps. I was hoping that he had a back h*e for the tractor to dig out the stumps, but no such luck. The guys were trying to dig out the stumps by hand. Right away I knew I was in trouble. When they realized that they were not going to be able to pull out the stumps, they decided to cut down the stumps, as low as they could to the ground, drill holes into the stumps, fill the holes with fertilizer and cover them with dirt to help rot out the stump. Finally, on the 8th day of the project, the whole crew showed up early in the morning and started to work. The guy with the tractor starts leveling the dirt around, one tree stump is still in the path of were I want to put a retaining wall and two guys are starting to put up the black rock for part of the retaining wall. They all seem to be in a very big hurry to get out of Dodge.
I get a knock on the front door and it is Randy, the owner. telling me that they are all done and he gives me a invoice. Now, we had agreed upon $2,300.00 for this project. I had given him a $1,00.00 check for a deposit before he started. I had made one minor change to the project, which we had agreed upon. HE GIVES ME A INVOICE FOR ANOTHER $2,200.0 and I tell him I will mail him a check and I go back into the house. A few minutes later there is another knock on the door and he asks me if I can right him a check and I tell him no, because this was not the amount we agreed upon. He tells me that he has to pay his workers and the tractor guy, so we agree on another $1,715.00 and I write him a check and he is gone. About an hour later I go out into the area they were working in and I am finding all kinds of rots, pieces of wood, large boulders and chunks of concrete still in the yard and the area I want to put up a retaining wall, still has the stump in it. I tried to find some reviews about the landscaping business before I hired them and I was not able to find any reviews, either good or bad. They are on Facebook and most of the comments are okay, but mostly for lawn care and maintenance. I think they were in over their head on this project and they should stick to mowing lawn.
