Larry's prices beat the competition. However, parts of the yard were not being watered, resulting in large dead patches of sod. His post-installation customer service was an answering machine, and he was simply impossible to reach! When

I have had this company do work for me for the last 15+ years at several of my homes locations and my businesses and they have always done an excellent job. I guess some of these other reviews were just bitter people who probably aren't happy with anything in life, you know the saying "misery loves company".

I am a business owner and have been for over 35 years and no how difficult it can be to please everyone and to be on time all the time. We are human and do make mistakes and do deserve chances in life. I also have an outdoor business which is at the mercy of mother nature and she will always rule first, people need to realize you cant have everything all the time, you cant have a yard that looks perfect with a huge machine on it if it just poured 10 inches of rain....get real people!

My conclusion, I think that this is and has always been a very reliable company and didnt deserve these reviews.....I have been there before.

First of all IM convinced the 1 good review here was posted by Larry himself, lol....because NO ONE in their right mind that used this company would ever do it again. Here the way it works.
He ask for a deposit and cant even start the job w/o your money to buy a few supplies.
Then he doesnt show up for weeks.
Next he shows up with what IM sure is a few illegals to do the dirty work.
AND wants MORE money.
Then, he ask for twice as much as 1st quote to continue.
Then he doesnt show up again for a week.
Next a few guys get dropped off.
AND Larry calls for more money
Then he doesnt show up for a week or so.
Next, the job isnt even near complete and you call a dozen times or he doesnt show up or his guys he drops off.
One job 3 months behind and he is working on the money you paid him. IN other words YOUR money NOT his Co. has pre-paid for the JOB.
Bottom LINE is the kick in the A**.....you find out he didnt even do ALL you paid for and uses only 1/2 the grade on products. Some things werent even done at ALL!!!

I am kicking myself for giving this man 50% deposit for "supplies" on work he has barely started. After going around and around for a couple weeks just to get started, they FINALLY show up, two guys, Larry dropped them off, and half the time they sat sitting in the yard in the shade...they didn't even show up at all today. So far, in 1 week, they have dug MAYBE a 10' trench. After trying to call today to see what the holdup is now, he isn't even bothering to return my calls. I'm getting very nervous since he already has some of our $. He actually came recommended from a friend who apparently he did a good job for a couple years ago. Things must have changed. I should have done my homework before going with him even though I had a recommendation. If I had searched, I would see that he is more or less a con-man. I see too on the BBB website, his grade is an "F". Unless he shows up very soon and does a great job like he claims he does, I have a feeling I'll be going to small claims court to get our deposit back.

The cost of install $4500. I asked for mist at narrow locations or small areas. The next day found no mist sprays were installed & was convinced by Larry that its to my benefit to have it the way he installed. Hence the area is always dead looking because the water is being wasted hitting wooded area and not grass. Also, I was charged for Rain Sensor & found a few weeks later, none was installed. The spickets were installed in ground instead of off ground in a corner. I called and left 30+ messages about issues & never got a single call back. I then tried calling as a new customer with different phone & got a call back from his home. Told her the issues and was promised I would get issues resolved but never heard back again. I read the comment about Larry being the master of getting away with things by giving you bogus reasons and the reviewer is %100 correct. To fix dead area grass, I now have to pay $1500-2000 more. Tilley's price quoted was only $700 more than Larry's. I have seen Tilley's work at friend's house, and they are awesome. Pay a little more & get quality results. Make sure you do four things to be happy later. 1. Have every little detail discussed with a contractor on paper (review over a few days and ask to modify if needed before signing contract)...2. Be there the day of work & watch and make sure everything is done as expected. 3. Don't pay until they show you everything on contract has been done & quality is perfect. 4. Try to hire someone reputable & pay a bit more to be happy later.

Pros: Lower price then reputable companies

Cons: Poor quality & charges for work never done

Contracted for a residential irrigation system with Larry BEFORE doing my homework. I know that Larry successfully installed a number of irrigation systems on my street. That must have been a different Larry. The current Larry is not dependable. He hires unskilled workers, drops them off at the site and leaves them there with no supervision. He is only interested in getting paid. He is a master at telling the homeowner what he wants to hear. Larry will then ignore the homeowner's concerns and work at his own glacial pace. Slow is not necessarily bad if the quality is high. Not only was Larry's work slow, it was hideously poor quality.
AVOID THIS COMPANY!!!!
He is not what he says he is. Don't sucked in by his promises as I did.
