Great work, friendly and professional workers. Customer service is poor.

Emails can go unanswered for days and require follow up to get a response. Same with phone calls. Customer service is poor. Was NOT notified of pending arrival of crew.
But they did a great job in the end and lawn looks great.

Backyard makeover

My backyard grass was destroyed. Michael and gang tore out the old and laid all new sod. Before the first cut it was like looking at prairie gas blowing in the wind. After the third cut the backyard now looks like a lush green bed. Very satisfied.

Installed new grass/grading

Michael Durham Landscaping was absolutely fantastic to work with. Not only was Michael and his crew professional and friendly, the work they did on my backyard was phenomenal. I waited two months to write a review so that I could comment on how the grass/grading was longer term and all I can say is that it is excellent! We had a lot of issues with pooling water in our backyard (among many other things) and Michael and his team regraded our backyard and we have not had issues since. If you follow the information his team provides on caring for your grass after it is laid it will turn out beautiful; I am so impressed. Just an added note, I live in a middle row townhome and Michael was one of the few landscapers willing to complete the job on our house. I couldn’t recommend his company more! Pictures below are before and then after the first grass cut (lawn looks even more beautiful now after a few more)

How Disappointing (Updated)

Clearly I’m an anomaly with this poor review. I referred this company to my mom based on the amazing reviews. She contacted their office June 16th and was told they couldn’t visit/quote for 2 weeks. Not a problem and an appointment was booked for June 30 between 4:30-7:30. And so it began…. A reminder email was received that morning confirming her appointment for a different day. Mom emailed back to clarify and they apologized for the error and did indeed confirm June 30. We waited. No one showed. This morning (July 1) she emailed them to advise of the no show. Email response:

“Hello,

My apologies Michael stopped by yesterday evening, as it’s lawn cutting and garden maintenance he does not need to view the property so he continued to the next quote, you will likely receive a proposal today for your property.

If you have any questions or concerns please,
Feel free to call or email at anytime.
Check out our website for more details.”

Thank you,
Michael Durham Landscaping

Hm. So he doesn’t need to view the property because it’s for lawn cutting and garden maintenance??? Anyone else think that’s odd? And he stopped by BUT doesn’t need to view the property. So why stop by? Why did we wait for almost 3 hours? And how does one reasonably & accurately quote services without a “need to view the property…”. (Numerous shrubs in back yard). Not to mention no opportunity to discuss the services required?
Nevertheless, she waited for the email quote. Quote was received today with a different client’s name and address.
Michael Durham Landscaping: This experience sure doesn’t seem on brand based on your company’s reviews. So very disappointed.

**update** thank you MDL for the fast response. Totally understand training new staff and the bumps along the way. Star rating “upped” to reflect responsiveness to this review. Yes, please email the correct quote and I’ll let her know.
July 13: Another update: quote not yet received..

Hello Donna,

Apologies as we are still in the training process for our new office admin, I visited the property and read what was required upon arrival, I did provide a proposal as your mom has the same first name as another customer the wrong proposal was sent, at which point we received an email:
Omg – this proposal is definitely not for me as we have never met. It is for another Yvonne at ************ in Whitby dated March 30, 2021. Based on the no show yesterday and now sending me someone else’s quote I am withdrawing my request, would you still like the proposal that was written up? Or still not send the proposal? We do try our best to have every team member up to par and apologize that you are deeply disappointed, please let me know if you'd like the proposal, thank you!

July 15 update: Hello Donna, I have sent your mother our lawn cutting proposal today. Please respond via email if you are still interested in receiving our lawn mowing services. Thank you for your understanding and patience during these times and apologies again for the mistake on our part.

Dec 14 Hello Donna, we're just reviewing as we still haven't heard back a response, thank you!

Tree Removal and Drainage Project

MDL worked efficiently and smoothly. Project looks great. No more icy driveway due to runoff or pools of water in the summer! Gave me lots of tips on getting the sod to take (water the crap out of it), and would use them again in a heartbeat.

Landscaping

Did do a great job. And the only grievance I have I did get 1st proposal and then I decided to change few things and add a couple of things I got another proposal and both of the proposals include price of disposal been/trailer. It is my fault I should have asked to combine both proposals in to one and then agree on that. I endup paying for 2 trailers.
And I honestly don't believe the stuff that they had to take out get required 2 trailers

Hello Igor,

Thank you for your review! we appreciate being able to provide service for you. With regards to the bin disposal, anytime a project requires more than one bin, for example, 1 1/2, 1 1/4 1 3/4 the charge is a still a flat rate for disposal before materials can be installed,( trailers must be empty to bring in clean materials) I hope this helps to clarify any miscommunication, thank you for supporting local!

Sod Replacement

Michael Landscaping was fast and thorough with the job. The team worked together quickly to remove weeds, layer on new top soil and then covered our property with fresh sod. Michael came by afterswards to inspect and clean up any garbage, as well as explain maintenance & care. We are very happy with our new lawn.
