They came and sprayed the sidewalks and all the other areas on July 8th. I was told that a business card would be put in my door so that I knew when they had come. I have a very young daughter and did not want her or anyone waking around the chemicals. I received a call on Monday the 11th saying that they had sprayed on Friday. My daughter and I had gone out to run an errand at the store for no more than two hours on Friday which must have been when they came. We came back from the store and played in the yard and around the trees not knowing they had just sprayed. We played out in the yard every day over that four day period before I got the phone call. I called on the 21st or 22nd of July to let them know that the areas that they had sprayed was all brown and ready to go. They said ok but did not tell me when they would be coming to the house. They showed up early on the 27th or the 28th. Three guys showed up in the morning and in the afternoon there were six to seven guys here to finish the job. They edged up the yard, pulled up the dead weeds in the beds, around the house, around the pool and shed, and around the trees. They put mulch down around all of the trees, the house, and in the flower beds. They also put stone around the pool and shed. All they did in the back corner was cut down the weeds. They also did not trim the bush that they were supposed to. They were here until about 4:30 and had put in a long days worth of work. However, when they left they did not come to the door and explain that the job was not finished and what would be happening next. About a week went by and we called them to see what would be happening with the rest of what needed to be done. We did not hear anything back. My daughter who is very young did accidentally dial them so I do not know if they thought that they were speaking to us. We received the bill about two weeks after they had been at our home. The bill was about $80 more than we had been quoted and agreed upon. I was told in the beginning that the job would cost between $800-850 and that the only way that would change would be if the back corner of our yard needed more done then what they could see with all of the weeds in the way. Since the back corner of the yard had not been finished we did not know why the bill had increased. We called the day after we got the bill which was a Saturday. My husband spoke to them and was trying to figure out why the bill had gone up and if they were coming back to finish the yard. We were told that if they came back to finish up the back corner it would take about three hours and that we would be charged for another whole day of labor plus materials. When asked about the bill, my husband was told that the job cost them more than they expected because of the number of guys they had used. The person speaking to my husband started to get frustrated and said that they did not have all of the paperwork in front of him and was telling my husband how it had cost him more than he thought. My husband ended the call as the person he was talking to was getting more upset by saying that he was not trying to put him on the spot and would call on Monday when they would be in the office. My husband called on Monday and left a message. It is not Tuesday and we have received no call back. The work that they performed was great. The parts that are completed and it is most of the yard, looks great. The stone and mulch were done really well. Everyone who was at my house was very nice and professional. My complaint is with the lack of communication and the fact that my bill was raised with no explanation.
