Diamond Professional Lawncare
Awful job, over-priced, unprofessional, dishonest...these are just a few of the words that come to mind when thinking of my experience. If you are dissatisfied with the quality of work that is done, the owner (Diana Powell-Wheeler) will then threaten to put a lien on your property. Since anyone can put a lien on your property if they create a bill to attach to the court document, I had to pay her what she was asking ($60) for a job that I could have hired a neighbor boy to do. I think since I am located out of state and this was for my rental property, she thought she could take advantage of my situation. She also likes to name drop local people she knows to either impress or scare/threaten. In my case, my neighbors who she called out by name verified my thoughts and suspicions on what kind of job she did. I also would like to share a direct quote from the owner of Diamond "I don't work in Bethany. The old ladies out here only want to pay you $10.00/hour. Decatur is where the money is." Avoid this and her ex-husband's (A-Powell, Powell Lawn Service) business. After dealing with this awful situation, I was able to find a wonderful and reputable business in Sullivan.
Tips & Advices
Employers must conduct all required training in a language and vocabulary that workers can understand. Training must demonstrate the hazards of operating certain machinery, like stone cutters and splitters, as well as how to use them appropriately. It's important to verify that your landscape contractor has taken the necessary steps to fully train its personnel and that the appropriate safety precautions are in place.
Check the specific regulations for your area, and verify that your contractor has the necessary licenses. These may include a state contractor's license, pesticide license, CDL driver's license and license to sell and purchase nursery stock.
Landscape work is not cheap, so it's in your best interest to make sure that it's done to your requirements and that you get the best contractor to do the job. Homeowners should know how much they'll need to pay for the contractor's service as well as how they will be billed for this work. Ask about any design fees, if quoted prices are fixed or estimates, and what the payment process will be. Clarifying these items in the beginning will prevent any surprise expenses.
Yes. Homeowners should require that the contractor submit certificates verifying compliance with safety, insurance, workers' compensation and drug and alcohol testing programs. This will give you peace of mind that the contractor has gone through all the steps under industry regulations.
Yes. Every good contractor should have a list of recently completed jobs that you can see in their portfolio. They should also have a list of references that you can contact, or properties that you can see in person.
