Not only did Akers of Lawn bust a pipe while installing sprinklers which we had to fix at our own cost, bit still waiting for them to complete our job from January this year due to one section of the lawn not getting watered…we keep ringing to chase, but Brad Akers keeps ignoring us. Guess that’s what happens when you’ve already paid in full…Zero stars.
This company was recommended to us for rejuvenating our lawn. We engaged them 10 months ago. They paid us a visit to assess the work needed and agreed to their quote. Instead of poisoning the old lawn as originally advised they just seeded and laid loam on top of the old lawn. When challenged they insisted weeding can be done at a later date with a spray which was done but proved useless. Weeds appeared within two weeks. Although they paid us 2-3 visits to monitor, fertilise and offer words of encouragement the end result now is that we hav...e no lawn other than bare patches everywhere and lots of weeds. We contacted them repeatedly seeking some remedial action to save our lawn but we received new quotes instead to lay a new lawn. Hence my suggestion to prospective clients to beware and suggest a business name change to "FAkers of Lawn" !!
Great Communication and Service
Thank you Akers of Lawn for my new lawn. From start to finish, you have delivered clear communication and prompt responses. I love my new lawn and so does my dog! Highly recommend.
Repaired 2 year old lawn we had so many problems with...
We had a 2 year old lawn that was professionally laid by a landscaper. It got to the point we were unable to mow it ourselves because it was spongy and very uneven. and had to rely on a lawnmowing firm which also had trouble mowing the lawn. We got Akers of Lawn in. He accessed the job and gave us a quote. Work was carried out within 2 weeks. with great communications from office staff via emails etc. and the lads cleaned up the area before they left ...will get follow up help over the next 6 months - to make sure we will never get in that situation again. Cant recommended this company enough!.
A new lawn.The bill had increased by $1600. I would hesitate to recommend this business.
Work done was good , a new lawn.but price was increased by $1,600 after it was
laid!!! When I queried it, Mr.A. stormed out! I am 74 and on a single age pension, so a shock. Very unprofessiona.l
Work done was good however communication was terrible. When trying to discuss the extra payment at the end and how different it was to original figure it left gentleman walking out telling us no maintenance will be done on the lawn.
Dal and his team were quick and efficient able to sort me out .,...good family business and very affordable....happy to have regular maintenance visits A+ Service thank yiu
We have been very disappointed with the lawn job that Akers of Lawn did for us a year ago. The lawn looks very unhealthy, has grown in clumps rather than a healthy looking lawn and we spent thousands of dollars on the job. We have contacted Akers a number of times and they agreed to repair the lawn but just planted some "fescew" (not sure of spelling) as a cheap alternative and now the lawn looks even worse and very patchy. We have communicated our disappointment at the mediocre result, and have sent photos of the lawn but have not had any positive resolution or offer from Akers to return and do the job properly. Our lawn looks awful and we are way out of pocket. I would not recommend Akers of Lawn.
Customer Care Needed
Can’t fault workmanship. However their lack of communication, customer service or care and the worst soil for my garden bed I could have imagined has soured what could have been a great experience with Akers of Lawn.
Value for money
Family business very well run, the staff work as a team, they are reliable, fast and deliver what they promise. A pleasure to watch them work. I have no hesitation to recommend this company as a supplier and installer of a quality product from a company that are experts in their trade
