false promise , not loyal to their word about quality of their service, improper charges, causing much more lawn trouble for me to handle.
I had a few Dalis grass growing in my lawn at the beginning of 2013 , this co. at the time of sign up , expressed over the phone that there wont be any extra charge for treatment of Dalis grass . They treated my lawn on 03/27/2013 then on 05/13/13 also on 06/20/13 which each time they post a statement of lawn analysis and report of the tech. with the amout of charge . and after that nobody showed up to do any treatment to my lawn , the Dalis grass started growing more and more which now is covering most of my lawn . Surprisingly I received an statement of charge claiming that they treated my lawn on 08/01/13 which I had never seen any sign of treatment ( the green dye chemical on my lawn or any sign of pebbles of they had used granulated weed and feed control what so ever , nor , any statement or lawn analysis posting on my door as usual for this date 08/01/2013 !!!!!. also I noticed a charge of 94.00 dollars for grassy weed control !!! which they charged me to kill the Dalis grass !!! . I was very disturb about the fact that they claim an excellent service but actually they present the poorest service ever and they let my little trouble of Dalis grass became a huge problem now and not only is controlled but also has been grown all over my yard . the $94 charge on 08/01/2013 claiming that they treated my lawn is not real and I do not accept it , plus , I do not accept the $ 94 charge for grassy weed control treatment which they did not do it and only sign of these claimed treatment is on their invoice , not on my lawn because there is no sign of improvement either . I had called several time to customer service and they refer me to the gentleman named Kelley , and he promised me to take a look at my lawn and see the problem for himself and he said he will be in touch with me after that which he did not do anything !!!! I had called several time after that and there is gentleman named **** , which I had explain the situation , but I am very surprised that not only they did not honored their claim of quality of the job and customer service !!! but instead of fixing the problem that they created , they turned my account to a collection agency !!! I am a successful business man with high income , and high credit score , these charges of two $ 94 is nothing for me at all , but just the concept of them ignoring my complain and not doing about fixing the problem turning my lawn to an ugly looking one ! is bothering me .
they sent me an invoice of 282.00 which 94.00 of this amount is accepted by me and I will pay that. But the charge of 94.00 for the service date on 08/01/13 and the charge of 94.00 for grassy weed control ( killing the Dalis grass !!) is not real and I do not agree with it and its scam .
They are responsible to letting a few dalis grass growing to all over my lawn now and instead of having less problem they want me to pay for it without any result of improvement . they need to call to their collection agency and cancel their request and treat my lawn or I will take the matter to the proper authorities . thank you . **** ***** customer no XXXXXX .
Dallisgrass is a grassy weed found in lawns throughout the Huntsville area. It begins to germinate and grow when temperatures reach approximately 85 degrees and continues to thrive through the hot summer months. It is not uncommon for a lawn to only have a small amount in May and then the entire lawn be full of it by July and August. There are no pre emergents that prevent it from germinating so it must be treated after it reaches maturity. There is only one product which effectively controls it and that product is most effective when temperatures are above 90 degrees.We offer a Grassy Weed Control program which consists of a minimum of 2 applications spaced 7 days apart. We only charge the customer for one of the applications and if Dallisgrass continues to be a problem after the second application we will make a follow up at no additional charge. Furthermore, if any Dallisgrass reappears in the lawn for 2 years we treat it at no additional charge. In order for these applications to be effective the customer must mow regularly and water as needed. When I inspected Mr. *****'s lawn the Bermuda turf was between 6 and 8 inches tall and there were clumps of Dallisgrass that were waist high. The technician had spoken with him several times regarding the importance of proper mowing but it has been a problem all year. There were occasions when the technician did not treat the lawn due to the height of the grass. I spoke with Mr. ***** and explained the Grassy Weed Control program and explained it may take several treatments to eradicate it, but they would be done at no additional charge to him. I also explained the importance of proper mowing to achieve the best results. This program does work when the applications are applied at 7 day intervals, we were not able to complete the program as Mr. *****'s account was placed on a credit hold for non payment. The window for controlling Dallisgrass is very short as I previously stated. We have applied a $188.00 credit to Mr. *****'s account, leaving him a balance due of $94.00. Should Mr. ***** wish to continue his service with Fairway Lawns we would be glad to have his business.
