Bottom line up front: I hired this company to work on my lawn, but they didn't show, didn't provide any notice, and didn't answer my follow up email. Highly unprofessional.
I hired David Nutter at Pro Lawn Care LLC to aerate and overseed my lawn. The estimated number was 10k-15k square feet of turf. He initially quoted $195, so we scheduled an estimate. He stopped by to look at the property, and gave a revised estimate of $495 for 2 passes of aeration and overseeding. That was also double the initial seed quantity.
Overall, the price was quite a bit more than the other 3 guys I got estimates from wanted, with the assurance that he would throw down twice as much seed. I am not sure if the extra aeration and seed is necessary, but it sounded reasonable.
He said he could do it Sunday, and so we scheduled it. I put in 6 hours of prep on Saturday raking, mowing close, and bagging everything. Then, he didn't show. He didn't contact me, and didn't return my email.
Now my grass is half dead from being clipped so short, covered in leaves, and worse than before. And I missed out on my Saturday. Thanks for nothing.
