5.0 Bianca T. Chula Vista, CA

Everything went well and fast from getting a quote and getting the project done.

5.0 Paula L. La Mesa, CA

I had a flawless experience. All went as discussed and promised. After install I had a question about one area of my turf/putting green. The installers were back out within 2 days to check it out. I would definitely recommend this company. They were professional, responsive and efficient.

2.0 Octavio G. La Mesa, CA

They subcontract their workers. Management did not give clear instructions to their workers. There was no foreman on site. Had to constantly debate with workers what management and I had agreed on for the contract. This was because the company subcontracts and misses important instructions to the workers.

Response from Company:

Mr. Garcia, Thank you for your email. 90% of all of our installations are performed by my business partner, Mario Gonzalez and have a foreman on site. Please read other reviews that rave about the work that we do. During the busiest times of the year, (Summer) we bring on qualified, licensed subcontractors to assist us with work. Otherwise, homeowners would have to wait too long for installations. We certainly do not bring on inexperienced, seasonal workers. Your project was a small concrete paver job consisting of 224 square feet of concrete pavers that were installed next to your existing patio slab. I apologize, but being a Contractor for 35 years allows me to make decisions regarding labor costs. We certainly could not justify a "foreman" to stand over the workers for the duration of your job. We would not be able to offer the high quality, low costs projects that we do. Your comments make no reference to the quality of work we do. If you are not satisfied with our installation, please reach out to me at 619-213-4008 and I will personally inspect the job. As you know, you paid for the installation upon completion and the job was completed within 2 days. We also discounted the job as low as possible to earn your business. Thank you for choosing Lawn Universe Construction, Inc. Artie Rose President/CEO Lawn Universe Construction, Inc. License Number 1030415

5.0 Raymond D. San Diego, CA

Excellent job. Did the whole job in about 5 hours. Cleaned everything up before they left

3.5 Allen P. San Diego, CA

Too expensive

Response from Company:

Please, take note that this review was not made by a client of ours. We offer high-quality products and installations at extremely competitive prices. I assume this person was unfamiliar with how Artificial Turf is installed professionally and the amount of time and materials needed to perform. For example, we remove approx. 4 inches of soil, compact and level, install drain rock, decomposed granite, weed barrier, premium artificial turf and infill. Also included are dump fees, spikes, staples, glue, fuel, truck expenses, licensing, insurance, workers comp., etc. - Artie Rose President/CEO Lawn Universe Construction, Inc.

5.0 John M. Temecula, CA

"Super" Mario and his crew were exceptional in their attention to detail. They worked hard to make a custom fit around complex rock edges. The crew was very friendly and communicated well regarding the installation. I highly recommend Lawn Universe.

5.0 Christine G. Chula Vista, CA

Lowest estimate! Artie is accomodating and responds fast! They did the retaining wall, drainage and pavers in our backyard in a week.

5.0 Jb B. El Cajon, CA

Very professional, reasonably priced, quality was top notch. Transformed our entire curb appeal.

5.0 Barry J. Chula Vista, CA

Didn't see it under project description, but mine was complete installation of synthetic grass in both front and back yards. My two neighbors and myself had a meeting with Artie and were impressed with his knowledge and professionalism. His quotes to us were very competitive. I checked the company's reviews and saw that almost all of them were 5 star. We selected Lawn Universe and the next Monday morning Mario and his crew arrived at 7:00 a.m. as promised. I was home each day they were there and can attest to how hard they worked and how they paid attention to detail. Mario constantly was checking in during their two days on the job to see if I had any questions and keep me abreast of their progress. The completed the project on the day promised and meticulously cleaned up our yards. My neighbors and I were extremely pleased and would recommend Artie, Mario and his crew to any potential customer. Our other neighbors and now asking about them now as well.

5.0 Ryan L. San Diego, CA

Mr. Rose came out and was very eager to work. He gave me a great quote for a great product. His crew came out and knocked out the job in one day as promised. So far so good. My dogs have ran all over it and it's staying in place perfectly. I highly recommend Lawn Universe.

  1. Verify Trade License
