Complaint Detail(s)

10/8/2014 Problems with Product/Service | Read Complaint Details

Additional Notes

Complaint: Installed a putting green in backyard and after 3 months notice some settling on the green. Called CCS 3 times and left a message about the problem and have not returned my calls. Installed the putting green in July of 2013. Now I have several dips on my putting green that makes it difficult to putt.

Desired Settlement: Would like to have repaired.

Business Response: Company states: We have been in touch with the consumer and are currently working on a resolution.

Consumer Response:  
Better Business Bureau:

I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to my concern, and find that this resolution is satisfactory to me. The company did contact me on 10/07/2014, but only to let me know that they did get the information from the BBB. The company will contact me within the next couple of weeks to schedule an appointment to fix the problem with my putting green. I will update when the company resolves the problem.

Additional Notes

Complaint: I entered into a contract with CCS to have artificial grass installed, along with some other work. The original contract called for bender board to be installed between the grass and the rock bed (it's documented in the contract). The contract also states that there is a warranty on labor and materials for 10 years. The board wasn't installed and I didn't notice it. The owner, *****, claims that we discussed this in detail, but that's not what I remember. One day he stated that he installed a rock border in the front yard in order to prevent the neighbor from mowing or hitting our turf with a lawn mower or weed eater/edger. After he left rocks would end up on the grass and it becomes a rather annoying process to move the rocks back to the rock bed. I don't think a board would stop all the rocks, but it should cut down on the number that move across. The neighbors grass also is starting to grow into the rock bed because there is no border. I would like to have the boards installed as specified in the contract.I contacted ***** and spoke to him on the phone. He became very aggressive and stated that he did so much extra for me and I should be grateful for that. He comes across as aggressive and arrogant. He won't respond to me via the phone or text and he called me a liar (through the use of other words) via text. I don't think he has any intent on fulfilling his end of the contract and I'd like to figure out what options I have. I would be satisfied with the following.

Desired Settlement: Based on his behavior, I'm not sure that I want him on my property.1. He can come out and take the grass and rocks and give me a full refund.2. He can hire someone to fix the issue.3. He can pay me some agreed upon sum and I'll hire someone to finish the job.4. I would be willing to void the entire contract and warrant for $9,000.

Consumer Response: Consumer states complaint issues have been resolved.
