I have relied on Homestars ratings for many years in order to choose quality vendors. Most of the time I have been rewarded. I was disappointed with LawnStuds who have a "Best of 2021" Homestars rating based on only 20 reviews.
I contracted with LawnStuds to do landscaping work which was to have been completed in the last two weeks of June. They did not complete this work and made me chase after them to get revised dates. This morning in response to my latest query they informed me that they cannot complete the job. I really don't know what happened but I really can't work with this group moving forward.
Companies with limited review history should not be award "Best of" designations. This is a disservice to Homestars followers and diminishes the brand.
