Mcbride Lawn Service & Landscaping
This guy did my patio and was very rude and did a terrible job. Half way through my neighbors told me it was crooked and the slant for water run off was to high of a slope in the middle and looks "lumpy", and that the slope by the house leaned toward the house so when it rains water will leak in my basement. When I asked him, he started yelling at me and threatened to walk off the job and my neighbors cna do it themselves. He did end finish it, but at the end, he said he couldn't do the stepping stones because he couldn't find any in that color. My dad ended up going to buy some for Mcbride to put in. A few weeks later they were covered in grass and you can't even see them. He promised my bill would be under $1,000. When it was time to pay he jacked up the price to $1200. Thank God I have good neighbors who came and stuck up for me. He had a differnt additude when they were there then when I was talking to him alone. I ended up having a friend come and spend 2 days fixing it for me.
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.
