WHATEVER YOU DO DO NOT ENGAGE ARTISTIC LANDSCAPING AND DESIGN. THEY DO NOT STAND BEHIND THEIR WORK. READ THE STORY AND LOOK AT THE PICTURES........
Attached are pictures of our lawn and the neighbors on either side. The first is the neighbor to the right of us. The second is our lawn after Artistic re-soiled and sodded. The third is the neighbor to the left. The lawns to the right and left look as they should. Ours looks diseased.
Artistic's salesman said the weeds came from neighboring lawns. You can see from the pictures of neighbor lawns this is not the case.
We had another lawn-landscaping company look at ours and they said the topsoil put down had to be poor quality and full of weeds to start with.
COMPANY PRESIDENT EVA SCHMITT DISAGREES AND RESPONDED AS FOLLOWS:
"Origin of screened soil and sod is from suppliers we use daily for 30 years." (JUST BECAUSE YOU BUY FROM A SUPPLIER FOR 30 YEARS DOESN'T MEAN THEY CAN'T SELL YOU POOR TOPSOIL)
"Your lawn was thriving in 2016 and 2017" ( HOW DO THEY KNOW THIS THEY WERN'Y HERE DURING THAT TIME). "In July and August of 2018, Ottawa experienced severely dry
and hot temperatures above the usual lawns were not shaded and regularly irrigated.
Cause of death of your lawn (and many others in Ottawa in 2018) lack of water even regularly watered,
crabgrass flourished and lawn needed treatment.
As such, Artistic Landscape Designs has not installed poor soil or sub-standard sod.
Regular irrigation on lawns twice weekly for 2 hours per area would have saved your lawn."
Nonsense. Artistic wasn't out here weekly to see if we watered. This is a convenient excuse (without evidence) for poor quality work. We watered regularly since they did the work.
Don't trust them.
