Scott's is not a reliable company. They have a history of charging people for services not ordered and expecting payment. They then turn you over to a collection agency thinking they can bribe you when they illegally dump chemicals on your property. If you look for comments on their service you will find many dissatisfied posts.

THIS IS VERY TRUE...I WORKED FOR THE BASTARDS this year 08-09. They hired me (9/2008) and 8 to 10 others at right around the same time. They lead us to believe it was not a SEASONAL gig (oh' brother LIE LIE). They came at all the new hires right around (12/2008) to inform us that they were going to be doing voluntary layoffs for 10 or so employees.***Come the FUCK ON/VOLUNTARY LAYOFFS*** They must think people are lame and stupid or something. They expect to work the SHIT out of someone, while driving around in their very disfunctional vehicles risking yourself all for $500 weekly BS.
Back to why they SCOTTS LAWN SERVICE, LLC are some SUCKAs in my BOOK....THEY SHOULD BE LOOKED INTO FOR SLAVE LABOR ACT 235434 of the Human rights. THE SHIT JUST ISN'T RIGHT....BECAUSE WE ALL GOT LET GO THAT MID DECEMBER of 2008. So 2months and some change they had got over on the dedication of decent individuals. THATS SORRY!!!
ps THEY TELL US TO DO THAT TYPE OF STUFF to add more products or an additional service and tally up sq. ft & slap the customer with the bill.
They will prepare a little crappy FYI heads up your about to get TAXED letter to accompany me (The Technician) thats coming out to screw you on some BS lawn service work...because I've only been trained for 6 days prior to tending to YOUR lawn/residence. Then if you DONT pay they will send your ass to collections very quick. AND YES IT WILL STICK ON YOUR CREDIT!!!
