We dealt with the owner, Rene Lopez. We agreed to two contracts, one for $1000 for sprinkler installation and $7900 for landscaping our front yard and a second contract for $4900 to erect a 14'x14' pergola, which we provided, put pavers under it, as well as a paver walk, take out an old deck, install a small arbor we had already assembled, and install a small sprinkler system in the back yard of an adjoining apartment. He required 50%, i.e., $6900 down. Then the trouble began. He repeatedly promised to come with his crew of 20 guys and get the work done over one weekend. But there was always some excuse that prevented him and his crew from showing. Some of his excuses were clearly lies. Rene haphazardly installed some pipes and sprayers in about a third of yard but never connected them to the water source and never installed a sprinkler control system. He left it for several weeks, with the yard dug up and pipes laying all around. He never started or completed any other work. We finally gave him an ultimatum to set a schedule he could and would honor. Of course, the next time he was scheduled to come, he no showed. We told him that we had no faith in his honesty or ability to do what he had contracted to do, so we were canceling both contracts, wanted him to remove what he had done, as it was worthless to us as it was, and to refund our $6900. Rene said he had put in $3000 in work and supplies in the partially done sprinkler system. He said he would keep $3000 or complete the $1000 sprinkler installation for $3900! We took this matter to arbitration through Home Advisor. The arbitrator found in our favor and instructed Rene to return $6700. The arbitrator concluded that Rene had performed only $200 worth of work despite his claim that he had done $3000 worth. We are now waiting to see if Rene returns us our money or if we have to take the arbitration award to court for enforcement. Meanwhile, our yard is a mess. We strongly recommend avoiding this business!

Response from Company:

Gary, Thanks for the review as we strive to always better ourselves in customer service. I would not refund your deposit? why dont you state the truth and say I was more then happy to refund your deposit but you don0 wanna pay for the work that has already been completed you want a FULL refund without paying for what has already been done. The only part that is true to this is yes we were a little behind and material at one point was hard to get. I should have known working on your property was gonna be an issue since you are having construction done and everything is half done and you were blaming contractors. We are not thieves here and w

Reneâ and his team installed a golf cart paver access for my mom. They were thorough, quick, respectful, and we have a lifetime guarantee. They were also the low bid from 3 Leesburg/Fruitland Park companies. Iâ ll be getting a bid for them for my driveway expansion in Ormond Beach

We were looking to replace our front lawn and after several estimates chose Central Florida Turf Specialist. We want to express how delighted and pleased we both are with the our decision. Rene is highly professional and personable. He kept us in the loop ever step of the way. Just a pleasure to work with. Our next project is to replace our wooden fence with a vynil one and have again chosen Central Florida Turf Specialist.

They never came back to finish the job... I have been waiting 2 weeks for them to come back... at this point, I prefer they NOT come back... originally hired to trim large shrubs... they looked great!!! Asked if the could come back and trim other shrubs... they did come back the next day... trimmed almost everything... STILL needed to come back and finish... also stood on my flowers while trimming and broke some and not that great of clean up!! I had to clean up after.

Response from Company:

Carol, Can you please give me a call at 352-537-1762 I am not sure if you have the right company all the work comes through me and I do not recall scheduling a trim job with you? Also, I am the person who comes out with a crew to trim and I do not recall any of this. Thanks.

They run their business professionally. They're on time, give reasonable estimates, do good work, respond to phone calls and messages. They're polite. I'm impressed.

Did not seem to be trained for the job he undertook. Job was done in a no professional manner and I would not recommend him

Response from Company:

Bill, Thank you for the review as a business we always try to be better at our jobs each day. How was the job unprofessional was it because you accused us of damaging a gutter that was already damaged I did not even argue with you or try to go back and fourth we stayed professional with you and called a gutter company and had it repaired for u the next morning so we would not have any issues I did not have to do that because I knew it was damaged already but I did and the company that fixed it even called me and told me a palm frond wouldn't cause that kind of damage then you tell we damaged your roof with palm fronds! really.

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
