Counsel for Dogwood landscaping recommends that anyone writing a negative review will be subject to a defamation of character lawsuit, as well as harrassment charges. It has been learned that a competitor, narrowed down to Northampton County, has been writing negative reviews to do repressive damage to Dogwood's 42 year reputation. This party has lost many residential bids to Dogwood the last 6 years. Someone at a local supplier overheard a conversation about how they were going to get Dogwood through negative reviews on the internet. Anyone can write anything about anyone on the internet in today's internet world. This party feels that privacy issues will protect their idenity, but ongoing investigations will uncover their idenity and they will be subject to monetary lawsuits and possible criminal arrest. Anyone writing negative reviews can expect to be taken to court and reported to the Northampton District Attorney's office. Dogwood Landscaping has been in business for 42 years and no one stays in business that long without performing quality work. Dogwood has been awarded the "who's who in business" 2 of the last 4 years, and will provide over 175 references of work performed in just the last 2 years. Persons writing these negative review should be prepared to go to court with a monetary lawsuit.
Fantastic Dogwood Landscaping Patio Jobs!!! – We highly recommend Dogwood Landscaping. We had a brick paver patio and walk installed along with 2 of our neighbors, and we had a great experience using Dogwood Landscaping!. Bill from Dogwood immeditely came out and gave us a design and estimate on the spot. We had other landscapers come to our house and give estimates and they all said we will get back to you within 2 weeks. Well, it turned out to be 3-4 weeks before we heard from them, if we ever heard from them. Bill comes out and gives a price after talking to us and getting our ideas. No 3-4 week wait.. He did the same with our neighbors. The materials used were top of the line and he was prompt arriving to do the job. His workers were extremely nice men and we felt very safe with them like they were part of the family, a factor not found in alot of construction company's labor force. We can tell you first hand about that from other construction experiences. Bill gave us 109 REFERENCES and each family called 5 references that gave glowing reports to all of us of his work. Bill is like a mother hen on a job making sure the job is done right. His 41 yeasrs of experience was evident and comforting. Your not in business for 41 years if you aren't doing business right! Dogwood's price was extremely fair. All three of us saved alot of money. We saved $2,000 and used it to buy patio furniture. Our neighbor ear marked their savings for a shore trip, and our other neighbor didn't think he could afford a patio until he got Bill's price.. so he was happy and was able to get his patio installed. The quality of the job was top notch! We are so happy that we selected Dogwood as well as the other 109 people that he has installed patios in the last 1 1/2 years. We had read the reviews but was recommended by a co-worker who assured us that the reviews were bogus and we found out first hand that they were bogus. We highly recommend Dogwood Landscaping and get the savings and quality job working with class people that you deserve.
Beware of Bill Shyster / Dogwood Landscaping! – April 2012 update
DOGWOOD is NOW UNDER INVESTIGATION.
Please refer to the contact information provided at the bottom of the review.
I DO NOT recommend hiring this guy, period!
This guy knows how to work the legal system. He has years of experience, ripping unsuspecting homeowners off!
If you hire anyone with reviews like this after reading these posts, shame on you.
Pretty bad you need to take this guy to court for about $155 a pop to try and peacefully resolve a complaint, only to find he states he had the wrong day on his calendar, wastes your time and then gets to keep all your money too.
He then shows up for a mandatory arbitration which you had no idea was part of the court system, with a pretty good story and the experience to make the homeowner look less the credible.
DO NOT give this man your copy of the original contract!
My blood is boiling at the thought of this guy ripping off another person, which is why I am taking the time to write a review.
This guy is a first class con artist. As stated in other reviews, he promises this and that, states he needs the work to keep his men busy and glady takes your money.
You will get shoddy workmanship, dead bushes and tress, he doesn't abide by the terms of the contract, takes the money and runs, doesn't return phone calls and then has the audacity to tell the court just the opposite.
Seems like an honest guy, but looks are quite deceiving. Maybe the man has a medical problem?
If you see his sign at a home near you, it is another potential victim. Advise them to rescind the contract and look for a reputable landscaper. If that is too late, hire an attorney.
What a RIPOFF!!!!
This company is currently under investigation. If you would like to help, please contact Paul Phillips @ 561 584-9284 ext 1000. Copies of complaint, original contract, notice of decision for those that have attemtpted to challenge this legally, canceled checks or credit card transactions, photos, and complaints filed with the BBB or Pa. State Attorney General would be greatly appreciated.
Please help prevent others from being "Scammed."
Beware of reviews that sound too good to be true!
Bait and switch... – Real simple -- you call for work and he shows up fast for the cash -- all smiles.
Then that's it! If your lucky, a little of the work gets done and then you never see or hear from him again.
If you are reading this before contracting with him, then run and run fast. If you already passed the cash, then get in line with the rest of us and kick yourself for not Googling his name first.
The other reviews seem spot on.
STAY Away from this company – We hired this man for our corner home to plant trees as a fence. We paid him $7500. This is our second year still under warranty and 1/2 the trees are dead. He called for replacement and as mentioned by all the posts, he'll get to it tomorrow, tomorrrow leads to next year. I've had it with this man, if he doesn't respond within this week I'm filing a civil lawsuit against him. He is the biggest liar and cheater in this world. Again he should be put out of business.
He's even not licensed. We should file a group lawsuit against him. Word of advice stay away from this man.
Beware of this fly by night and dishonest business – the owner of this business, Bill Schlecter could not start my chain link fence project soon enough. after completion of the job, we found many issues. Countless phone calls not returned, and when finally a response, he would be here tomorrow. Tomorrow turned into tomorrow which turned into tomorrow, we still have no resolution. It has been 4 months and our gates are closed with bungee cords. I paid 2000.00 for a professional job and got less than a first time do- it -yourself-er could have done. Mickey Mouse materials. I hope that all the others who have been wronged by this business will follow my lead and file a complaint with the "BBB" and file a small claims action against him.
Don't Buy Aggravation – Landscaping 101-How to Plant a Tree. These guys couldn't even do this right. They stuck the trees (half dead to begin with) in a shallow hole and didn't even bother to fill with soil. Then they didn't stake. I called them to stake the trees as they had blown over a few days later. They put 1 twelve in. stake in the ground and put a bent coat hanger around the trunk! Why not just saw the tree in half while you're there guys? Well that tree is dead because he took so long to come out to pull it upright and still didn't put soil around the bottom. The man's business is off 309. Go there first and you'll see half dead plants heaped on piles. These will be what you get. He brought me a Charlie Brown evergreen and a wilted tree from this pile. The sloppy workmanship is beyond reality. This is landscaping bizarro world. I still can't believe it. His workers are more lazy than he is. They don't even bring equipment to do the job well. Want a boulder? They will roll it off the truck and try to push it by hand. When they were tired they left it where it was and mulched around it! HAHA. I have to laugh or I'd cry. Run, don't walk away from this "landscaper".
Never hire The Dogwood landscaping – It remains a mystery how this man stays in business. He is a liar and a cheater. Dishonest businessman.
Poor workmanship, substandard materials and planted wilted plants and trees. Dead shrubs in our yard with two years warranty have never been replaced. Do not be entice by any promises, after you pay him, he disappears and never returns your calls. Let’s solidify our efforts and put this dishonest man out of business !!
Bad Company, total rip off... – Stay away far away. Bill Schlechter is he owner of dogwood landscape and is unethical business person. Work was never done correctly. Never returns phone calls. His employee always talk neg about the him. This company is just a total rip off. Stay away!
THE WORST LANDSCAPER EVER – Bill the owner of Dogwood Landscaping is the worst nightmare you can ever have. We had patio and landcaping done from this guy and our patio is falling apart. He has failed to return any of our phone calls. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND HIM TO ANYONE.
