Late fall Sodding

I have used Viktory Landscaping in the past for sodding and other landscaping, they had done an excellent job. So I figured that I would hire them again to re-sod my front yard, 855 square feet worth at $1.60 per square foot. This included cutting out old sod, disposal of old sod, 1 yard of topsoil, grading, detailing and installation of new sod which he supplied as per our detailed text conversations. The day in question Viktor called to advise what time he would be arriving and that he was looking for helpers that day as he was by himself. I thought it strange but Viktor advised he had the entire day put aside to do the work and not to worry. I can understand a lot of late season work being required and trying to appease all his customers. Viktor arrived and got right to it. I was working from my home office this day so I was around but busy. It was about 5 hours later and he was completed. I came out in between meetings and had a chat with him, pointed out a couple areas that required trimming (sod hanging over side walk and curbs). Viktor said no worries, would take care of it. I settled up and went back to my office. Later the evening when I was done working I went out to do a more detailed inspection of the work. After a few minutes I notice the grading in areas was not good. Highs and Lows and areas around the driveway edge were sinking in a several inches when walked on. I engaged Viktor and asked if he put down any top soil. Viktor said no it was not needed and my lawn had enough and used this existing soil to grade the lawn. I then noticed that several area that the grass was over top the side walk and curbs (3 inches worth). I engaged Viktor again and he advised I could just use an Exacto knife to trim it. The next morning I went out to trim the areas in question. I noticed the new sod did not sit flat and was not making contact to the soil beneath. The edging of the new sod was not straight as it met the curb. I engaged Viktor again to see if he rolled the new sod. I was advised no , it does not require rolling. I rented a lawn roller form Home Depot several days later for a 4 hour rental. Returned it 2 hours early for a total of $4.70 to rent. Great deal! Fast forward 2 days and I wake up to a note from my neighbor on my front door advising that she can’t access her backyard through her side gate as the sod is 2 inches above her gate and can’t open it as a result. I quickly trim this area and apologies for the inconvenience. Since then I found he also sodded aver a highly visible blue township water access cover as well. I did engage him on the issues, but return communication from his end has ceased. I advised that I was really happy with the first job they performed at my residence several years back but was disappointed with this sodding project. As a token gesture I suggested that perhaps come spring time he could provide the yard of soil that was to be used to grade the lawn and I would spread out over the grass myself as a top soil. No response for 2 weeks now.

Front porch

Great crew and great job. Took 1 day and looks like a millions dollar job. Estimate and drawings were done to perfection. Crew was great and once the job was done everything was cleaned up.

Front Entrace

Viktory Landscaping was great to work with. They took our vision for the front entrance to our home and made it unique. When they were done you wouldn't even know they were there other than the project was complete.

Fence

Very long fence installed on both sides of my property. Job well done. Professional. Really cared about my families needs. Qoute was on budget. Viktory and his team did a stand up job.

Post hole digging and installation

Viktory Landscaping was hired by several neighbors to dig postholes and install posts. We own a house clad in siding, were unsure how to install posts in order to place gates at 2 locations. Viktory Landscaping assured us in the presence of our neighbors that the posts next to the house would be installed, and even went to great length to describe all the finishing touches they would do so the posts would look close to the wall. Our big mistake was paying the gentleman when the job was not completely finished-just a few posts left to install. When they moved on to the next house, we asked when the gate posts would be installed. We were told that they didn't do that sort of thing, and furthermore, never told us that they would. They left a heck of a mess around the post holes. We ended up paying approx. $10.00 more per post than the original quote. We needed to hire another fencing company to come and install those posts. That company came, installed the posts beautifully, and cleaned up after themselves-really wish we had hired them in the first place.

Hey thanks for the review. Just like the other 10,000+ post we have installed we never ever clean up the soil around the base of the post just so we are clear.

As a professional contractor over 15 years I've come to realize that not everybody can be pleased nor happy with my work.

I wish you all the best, and hope you enjoy your backyard, front yard, and side yard, landscaping that we provided.
