Project: Install Sod
Curtis is a very nice person and does try to do a good job. If you are looking for someone to professionally lay your sod, I could not recommend Above Ground Landscaping. They do not have the equipment and knowledgeable employees necessary for a finished, professional job. Problems with my installation of 3,020 sq ft of Zoysia: 1. area was raked, but not graded as promised 2. no herbicide or insecticide was applied prior to laying the sod 3. only a couple of cups of Osmocote slow release fertilizer was applied for over 3,000 sq ft 4. they were short of sod and had to reorder. After the reorder they were still short and bought sod locally to finish the job. The last order of sod did not match the color and texture of the first two orders. 5. the sod was thrown to the ground and kicked in place. As a result my wife and I had to buy 2 bags of topsoil to fill in the gaps. (see attached photos) 6. the sod was never rolled 7. the irrigation system that they installed leaked badly at the timer. I brought this to Curtis's attention and he promised to fix it. A week later, I bought the parts and fixed it myself. I have not heard from Curtis since. Curtis did not do a good job, but he was several hundred dollars less than the other bidders. Although we have spent several hours and now must wait a month or more before applying the fertlizer and insecticide over the new sod, we probably got our money's worth from Curtis. If I had it to do over again, I would not contract with Above Ground Landscaping.
Response by Above Ground Landscape: Hello sorry for the issues you are having we did what we were supposed to I told you at the beginning we did not roll the sod in because it breaks the blades of grass off and takes longer to root. I do not spray for any fungis unless ask to do we put plenty of osmecoat down to really take care of the area. As far as the irrigation you didn't won't to spend the money for a true irrigation system so we used a hose bib timer. we have all the equipment you need you even thought so. But zoysia will grow in not like st Augustine when u lay it But before I left you was happy. Been doing it a long time and still right at a 5 star. Thanks Curtis

Review by a homeowner in Valrico, FL
Bad work, bad guarantee, bad company, had to file a claim in order to resolve this to get them to replace the infected sod they place in my yard, the replaced sod is just as bad, Curtis will not return my phone call or text message. Buyer beware.
Response by Above Ground Landscape: Hello we have replaced your phone calls and text messages. You was happy with the other sod have not heard anything else about the new Sod I met up with you and it was really looking good 3 mths ago you have text me to do more work but not for Sod the claim you filed against me you drop it because I fixed all the issues and did extra work. But I did replace the dead Sod you had and took care of that if there is a issue please call me direct I will answer sorry for the inconvience. Thanks Curtis.

Review by in Tampa, FL
Project: Install Sod
Curtis and his are very pleasant and knowledgeable. The work performed was as expected. The only negative was the lack of cleanup after the sod job. I needed to scrub my driveway and sweep up after they were done. Lots of dirt and mud leftover. I would hire them again for the next job.
Response by Above Ground Landscape: (consumer name withheld per their request) I'm glad you liked the outcome of the Sod. Very sorry for the debris and dirt left. I will really talk to the guys and see why there was a lack of cleanup. I'm sorry for that. we did not have the pressure washer with us sorry. Curtis Grooms 813-562-8105

Review by Gloria H. in Lutz, FL
Project: Install Sod
The sod that Curtis and his company installed died within the first month directly related to things they did and did not do with my install. To start, the sod looked bad from the day he installed it, and when I mentioned that to him, he said it just needed time to recover from having been stacked and transported. I did everything he told me to do, and I have the water bills to prove it, but shortly after the installation, more and more of the lawn began to die until most of what he had installed was brown or overtaken by weeds. I have been waiting since July for the problems created by Curtis to be fixed. So far, he has dug up some of the dead sod and hired Tru-Green to treat other parts of the yard that he refuses to replace despite the fact that much of it is brown. It's been several weeks since he did this work and now my yard has some green grass interspersed with a lot of brown, many, many weeds, and large areas of dirt. I still don't know what his intentions are since he has been making promises and excuses ever since I notified him that the yard had died. After all this time, what I want now is my money back, but Curtis says he does not have the money to reimburse me what I paid. That leads me to wonder where he is going to get the money to purchase sod for my yard, so I have no idea whether he is going to fix my yard or not. What I know is that I have spent $5800.00 to have a yard that looks worse than it has ever looked.
Response by Above Ground Landscape: Hello this is Curtis grooms with Above Ground landscape. Mrs Gloria we installed your Sod you was happy you paid us. You went out of town and came back notice your yard was dying a month after install. I came out look at it and it had fungis we treated for grubs you had in the soil and on top of everything all the rain received didn't help with the st Augustine. After we tore out the dead Sod we are waiting for the right time to install the Sod because with me warranting it I have to get good Sod if I had no intention on fixing I would be maintaining it our having it treated thank you we will fix 11-17-16
