contacted the company to redo SOD on my BRAND NEW HOME... Mark Lusik the owner was nice and gave me a good deal on the job. After excahnging multiple emails about grass and detailed work as well as planning for NO RAIN in the forecast we scheduled. Mark came out 2 times to go over detailed area of sod. The day that we were suppose to do the sod it was going to rain and to my surprise he decided to do the work anyway.....(i have emails about how he states "it was a bad decision") even though we discussed this multiple times.

I had come home from work to discover the front yard and side yard were a mess!!!! THe job was 35% complete and I called him immediately and stated to STOP WORK as this is NOT acceptable...there were sod pieces inches away from each other and the job looked like i unleashed 2nd grade children to do this...Mark stated that he understands and will be out the next day to fix it and not to worry. When i came home the second day..the JOB WAS WORSE THAN THE DAY BEFORE the yard was so uneven you could not barely walk on it as there are bumps and divots everywhere... the edging was NOT cut out, the property line was not straight..it looks like a serpentine it was absolutely disgusting! The driveway and sidewalk were completely dirty NO CLEAN UP FROM THE CREW.... i had spent HOURS out there brushing and cleaning...no what you would expect from a PROFESSIONAL company... THe worse part was that the pieces of sod ( if you know ) were not touching 2-3 inches of gaps... no sod holders on the hills so sod is sliding... they never cut out the water lines on the street so i had to find them and cut them out....i had river rock in my landscaping and some how??? they were in the yard UNDER sod???? it was ridiculous and i am not only livid but so sad that this looks so bad and i am out money for this job that children could have down better..they were suppose to also lay 10 yards of good soil and i can assure you they did NOT....

THIS IS WHY SOME LANDSCAPERS HAVE A BAD REP....b/c of this company

This was the worst landscape job i have seen and on my brand new home i worked and saved so long for!!!!! I have had multiple landscape companies come out to look and they were absolutely astonished that this was done... one said "This is why some landscapers get bad reputations, he obviously didnt care"? The majority of landscapers that came out did not want the work to repair as they said the only way to really fix it is to pull it all up and start over.... which will cost me 3 times the amount!!!!

If you are looking for quality, professional work....STAY FAR AWAY FROM THIS PLACE!!!!!! Heed my warning now and do yourself a favor and call someone else... i am not a professional landscaper but i have laid sod down and its not really a complicated process and if they cant do this... i would be truly horrified to see larger more difficult jobs than this... please stay away !!!!!!!

DeMarco Landscaping was very professional from start to finish. Mr DeMarco was very polite and his 20+ years of experience showed in the quality of his work.
This is truly a profession family business with quality work and competitive prices!

There actually should be a zero star rating! John DeMarco landscaping is the worst set of contractors that I have dealt with ever. They have left unfinished landscaping clean up and fence work in my back yard despite receiving more than half of the total payment amount ($1458) estimated for thsi work. I have been waiting for over a month for them to come by and wrap it up. Whats left is the tree stump removal as promised and fence installation in the back yard. They have not returned any of my several calls to ask them to give me a date for completion of this work. I have also filed a complaint with the BBB about this company and owner as he is the most unresponsive and irresponsible individual I have encountered.

I have dealt with numerous contractors during my 19 years in business . DeMarco Landscaping uses top quality materials and the employees really take pride in their work. They can handle small jobs that only take a few hours to jobs that require Professional Engineering . They are my go-to company when I need the job done right. I recommend their services to anyone that needs a full service Landscape company.

We hired DeMarco Landscaping to install paver sidewalks and patio. The quality of the work was okay, not great, but acceptable. However, they left our flower bed fulll of gravel, did not properly regrade and reseed our lawn area and took nearly 3 weeks to return to correct a mistake. Also, they managed to cut the wire from our house to our lamp posts and while initially agreeing to have the wire fixed, after 3 weeks they then told us it wasn't their responsibility and they would not fix it. Now I'm left having to tear up the sidewalk and pay someone to fix the wire and then pay someone else to put the sidewalk back together all at my exense. DO NOT use this company.
