Paolella Lawn & Landscape
The owner of this company is by far the most unprofessional, uneducated, lazy and rude individual I have ever had to deal with!He came over for an estimate of our yard, we were looking for a complete "spring clean-up" I went over and explained each and everything we needed done, with was not a huge job as our property is not very large. He scheduled to come out the following Monday. Two weeks later still no show so I called this morning. He said they would come out today at 2pm. He did not show up until 4:45, bringing with him two "kids" that looked to be around 15 years old. He then proceeded to tell me that he went over his notes and did not know that we needed our LAWN MOWED while shaking his head! I could tell that all he wanted to do was go home and eat dinner!!!!... My reply was ",isin't that you're business, lawn care? What did he think he was there to do? I went over the job with him numerous times! We needed some debris removed, the lawn raked, weed wacked and MOWED!! I had a bad feeling both times I spoke with him as he seems like he just does not want to work! He seemed agitated at each thing I asked him to do and kept upping the price. He did not want to remove the debris, he simply wanted to leave in in our yard! And if I wanted them to remove it would cost an extra $75.00 to an already ridiculously inflated price! The bottom line is this, this man is lazy, disrespectful and RUDE! He simply wants to ride on his sit down lawn mower, which you can tell by the fact he is completely out of shape.There is so much competition for lawn care right now, and I chose HIM, yet he acted like he was doing ME a favor and inconveniencing him! This was by far the MOST unprofessional man/company (if you want to call it that) I have EVER dealt with! Wallingford residents, PLEASE do NOT hire this man and the two "kids" he carts around with him! I can guarantee you WILL have a negative experience like myself and 3 others that I found out he did the SAME THING TOO!!!!!!
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.
