Maedgen's Lawn Care
While the actual work that was performed on our yard was what we expected, the customer service is horrible. Since we are a military family, my husband's phone number does not have the same area code as Maedgen's Lawn Care. Any time he called, the call went to voice mail or was disconnected. NONE of his messages were returned. It wasn't until I called from a phone with the same area code that we were able to request their service.Once the people at Maegen's took our phone call, they were out and had mowed our lawn the next day. The price was very reasonable. We would not have known our lawn was mowed, however, because no one called to confirm the work had been completed and to make payment arrangements. It wasn't until several days later that I called again and was able to finish this event.Since then, we have attempted to use Maedgen's for our lawn care needs again. They refuse to answer or return my calls. As it appears, they never charged our credit card for the service they provided in August 2013. It would be nice to rectify this, but impossible to do if the employees of Maedgen's refuse to answer or return my calls.
Tips & Advices
Do your due diligence and always ask for proof of insurance and certification before agreeing to any work. You will also want to be on the lookout for telltale signs of scams and be cautious of any company that:
  • Will not provide you with a certificate of their insurance policy or only has general liability coverage
  • Declines to give you a written estimate for the job
  • Gives you bids that either seem very low or very high
  • Contacted you out of the blue to see if you needed their services
  • Has complaints against it from business bureaus in your area
  • Asks for payment before starting work
  • Doesn't have a fixed physical address
Tree service companies are also great places to get your wood if you happen to have a fireplace. Many tree businesses offer free delivery and stacking of hardwoods, such as maple or birch. These can make for the best firewood because they burn slowly and don't produce as much smoke as other types.
If you want to add to the greenery in your yard but you're concerned about the right species to plant or where to put it on your property, seek the advice of an arborist.
If a storm hits and damages your residence, a tree service professional is usually on your list of people to call for help after first responders and your insurer. A professional service can completely remove a tree or just prune and saw off its branches if a storm damages a tree. After sawing or destroying the tree, professionals can then remove any of the dangerous debris from your yard by hauling it off.
Some bugs burrow through the bark and damage hardwood and softwood trees. Depending on the species of trees in your yard and the region of the country you live in, aphids, the infamous emerald ash borer or other pests could destroy your healthy trees.
