Charging for job not done
As I moved into my new house I just took over the services of the previous house owner. UNFORTUNATELY! I had to call 3-4 times before they came and did the job the previous owners had paid for. And still they only did half the job that was paid for.
After almost 3 weeks and 3-4 calls they still haven't come to cut the grass but claim that they cut it a week ago. And will chargé us for the non-cut. The grass is 7ich tall and that is not a one-week growth.

Lost their BBB accreditation-not surprising
Had hired Empire Yard Services (ka Empire Snow Removal, Light Kings) for weekly lawn maintenance. Did a so-so job. Toward the fall I noticed that many of our trees (5) were dying. Noticed that the bark around the bases of all of these trees was stripped circumferentially and the ones that weren't dying (bigger trees) had marks from a grass whipper (also on the lawn furniture). I had an arborist come by to confirm that the girdling around the trunks was the source of their demise (not cheap). Paul, the owner, became quite confrontational when I pointed out to him that his crew had killed 5 trees in my yard. He said he wanted to see if they came back next year. Well the trees never came back, and neither did Paul. He refused to answer multiple phone calls and would not take any responsibility for killing the trees. He was referred to the better business bureau. He refused to address the complaint and subsequetly lost his BBB accreditation as a result. Cost of replacing those trees is probably over a thousand dollars. Extremely dishonest, unprofessional, untrustworthy. There are many lawn care/snow removal/Chirstmas light hanging services out there. Avoid this one at all costs.

Philstein,

I am sorry to hear about your unfortunate experience with Empire Yards and the previous owners.

We purchased the company over a year ago, and we are committed to superior customer service with special attention to any customer concerns.

Under the new ownership we are accredit with the BB and have an A+ rating.

Empire Yard Services Inc. began in 1999 with a Fall Clean-Up service. Our equipment, back then, consisted of an old station wagon and two rakes. The season proved to be successful and the business was expanded to include Christmas Light Setup, and the response was overwhelming.

There were many requests from customers for year-round property care, because they wanted to deal with only one company that they could trust and depend upon for their year-round property maintenance. In our second year, our list of services expanded to include Spring Clean-Ups, Weekly Lawn Care, Light Landscaping and Snow Clearing.

A decade later, Empire Yard Services owns a fleet of trucks and trailers, and a large and expanding inventory of lawn care and Christmas light equipment.

Today, we have dozens of experienced staff serving hundreds of happy clients all around Calgary, many of whom have been with us since our first year of business!

Empire Yard Services is fully insured for liability, and has WCB coverage for your peace of mind.
