Most Recent Reviews

“The Grounds Guys did a complete overhaul of our backyard. They installed new sod and shrubbery, added new (and repaired existing) irrigation and built out a new patio and retaining wall (with lighting features). They showed up on time, when they said they would and were extremely helpful in their recommendations and responsive to any questions we had along the way. Everything was done promptly and professionally and we love the results. Highly recommend The Grounds Guys, you will not be disappointed. Top notch work.”

“The Grounds Guys replaced sod, adjusted my irrigation system and treated my lawn for fungus. They also recommended a application of Milorganite to promote root growth. The results have been astounding.”

“Overall great company to work for, or have do your lawn smart knowledgeable workers that get the job done in a timely matter just show up for work and do your job, paid for employees to go thru schooling.”

Grounds Guys Columbia Reviews

Didn’t get what I paid for

May 25, 2024

Chose The Ground Guys based on reviews. Yes, they were prompt, courteous and talked a good talk. We hired them to remove existing sod because we had a lot of nutsedge, buttonweed due to water ponding on uneven surfaces. This was in August 2023. It stated in the contract that Ground Guys would grade our back lawn and install fresh centipede sod. When job was completed we still had low lying areas.

After notifying The Ground Guys , it took them until October 2023to return with 5 gallon bucket or soil( not enough), which the employees kicked in place with their boots. Threw down a few pieces of dried out sod and did not brick lay it.

Here we are in May 2024 and we had to replace that same entire area as it died from water ponding -still! We have had more crabgrass than ever on the rest of the lawn as well as – yep you guessed it- nutsedge and buttonweed..

I have spent well over 120 hours hand picking various weeds besides the crabgrass, nutsedge and buttonweed. In short, the worst quality of sod I have ever seen that we paid $6000 for.

If you want great sod call HARMONY BRAND FARMS ! The best ever sod! For small jobs you can call them to find out when they will be delivering to your nearest Home Depot or Lowe’s. Beautiful, thick, lush , weed free centipede sod.

Oh and yes I did reach out to the owner,Ben via text and -CRICKETS!

DONT TRUST they will just charge your CC and do whatever service to make the most money without your approval

June 15, 2023

Have been using them for a couple years now. As of lately they don’t leave a breakdown of cost of service & just charge card. This past visit they were ONLY supposed to do a tick service and did and charged us for the entire front of our property almost $600 bucks not approved (we discussed TICK service ONLY) now they are ignoring our calls and will not refund us for the service we did NOT ask for as well as again charging our CC without service price breakdown. I specifically spoke to them week prior about where they would be spraying they take advantage of customers and their money and just automatically decide what THEY want to do and charge my CC without authorization and bill. VERY expensive service and unprofessional employees

Hi

of course like your web site however you need to take a look at the spelling on quite a few of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling problems and I in finding it very bothersome to inform the reality on the other hand I’ll surely come again again.

My yard didn’t look good til I changed companies!

April 8, 2023

I used Trugreen for about 4 years – aerating/seeding in fall and approx 6 fertilizer/ weed control services per year- all costing about $900 per year. My yard NEVER looked good. Never. Looked as if nothing was being done to help it. Then I read where many Trugreen svc reps simply post the sign in your yard to make it look as if they had treated your yard that day when they had actually done nothing. But admittedly I never saw any reps – and I’m home ALL DAY EVERYDAY because I’m retired. Well, I finally changed companies this past fall 2022 because I decided that the Trugreen people weren’t actually doing my yard. Within 3 months of changing to “All Turf” my grass fescue lawn finally looks lush & green like it’s supposed to!!!!!! And to think I had to tolerate the crappy looking yard I had for the past 4 years!!! It’s now a good 6 months since changing companies and my yard looks excellent- thick and green! My advice: Change companies!!! All Turf lawn care does Cartersville, Bartow county, etc……. I wish I’d fired Trugreen years ago- they are a ripoff.
