Thumbtack would only allow me to rate James and his crew on 3/5 categories. Given the option I would have graded them top knotch on all 5. The 3 I chose were -) professionalism- from my first inquiry Up to the final piece of was laid James was right there with me. He wasn’t pushy or overbearing we figured out how much sod would be needed and James took it from there. He contacted several sod farms to weight or options. Once I decked the exact grass I wanted James called his guys and found the best prices and lead dates for my particular situation. 2) his responsiveness was next level. Doing a major overhaul/renovation in our front yard is a big deal and can be stressful. James squelched all feeling of doubt by walking me through the process. Talking how they would approach my land specifically. Due to rain my sod got pushed back a week. I never has to track down the sod farm. Never had to poke and prod about when it might be ready. James already knew and would relay the info to me as soon as he caught wind of it. He and his crew were at the house ready to rock by 7am. By the time the sod farm delivered the sod, James and his Guys already had everything prepped and ready for installation. They all cool dudes, more than willing to field requests and meet them (if possible). After sodding my entire front yard we still had a pallet of sod remaining and some fill dirt. Instead of calling it a day they came and asked if the could us those materials on my other lawn that has drainage issues and needed some helps Their work was fantastic and punctual. But the quality of service given by James was next level. His willingness to constantly keep me up to date and weigh different options along the way was invaluable. When the project was complete and paid for, I got a text from James offering some advice for caring for the sod. I joked with him that he’s already been paid… this is the part where he supposed to throw me to the wind and wish me the best of luck. He responded by saying that’s just how he operates- continuing to take care of customers even when there’s nothing left for him to get out of it. Great guy, great crew. I’ll continue to populate this review with updated photos as the lawn progresses 3)

Great job!!! He produces good quality work. See for yourself in the pictures. He was very professional and was sure to communicate any delays about the sod delivery, and very informative about the sod that would be installed and how to take care of it. I definitely would recommend Southern Grounds for your lawn care needs.
