Firstly, the guy gives me price for a lawn that is 400 sqft bigger and when I asked him why he is doing this, he said it is his price. I gave him the benefit of down and then he started the work a month late. The grading he did was incorrect and not as per city of calgary guidelines as the slope ran towards our neighbour’s and not between the two houses as it should be. Also the SOD HE BROUGHT WAS YELLOW.
When I confronted him on this he told me grading is fine and sod is exactly what he gets from supplier. In reality the sod probably sat in his yard or truck for days before he laid it out. I now spend hours water the lawn. Not to mention the money I have to repay to another contractor to redo the grading between the houses.
Please don’t go ahead with this contractor, plenty of them that can do the job right for even less the money.
