Avant Gardens - Inept Gardener Review
Loi Ricket is a thief and a liar. She did the same thing to us . Started work, disappeared, said she couldn't continue without additional funds. We even disputed a credit card charge and she won because she is adept at lying and misrepresentation. Almost everything she planted has died , had to be removed or replaced. She stole thousands from us. And every summer I am reminded of it when I look around my yard
GOOD RIDDANCE is the nicest thing I can say
Looking at original plan and what I got is not even close. She took part of the prints that I paid for to change out plants. I never got those back or the references I required that were "out of town" and never became available. We finally did get to see another person's yard but were instructed not to talk to them. I think I will head over there to see what became of their yard because it looked a lot like the plan I DID with the rocks and she incorporated over there. She was scary, a blatant liar, and her workers were thieves bragging about their bounties from vendors and benies they got from the state by being paid under the table. That costs us tax payers as well! Rohan, her husband that lost this same business in Eagle River, then moved it to Wasilla under her name (so I learned) is no better. They just learned to be sneakier and took things out of their name to avoid losing in lawsuits. CRAZY LIKE A FOX and they taught their son. He does the shabby brick retaining walls. The retaining walls collapsed and the plants did not come back which is part of her repeated plan for you to rehire her. NO! IF you see the FLOWERED SMALL SCHOOL BUS DO NOT STOP!! She is parking in lots on Knik and at the RR Depot on weekends when she is less likely to be told to move. Warning you and moving on.
Loi Ricker, Avant Gardens, falsely represented herself
I've seen Loi Ricker's of Avante Gardens display at the Alaska State Fair in Palmer for a couple years. Her picture album shows some great work. It wasn't until I paid her $20,000 last year to landscape my back yard and put in a small pond that I found out what a fraud she is. I was not able to give suggestions without her jumping down my throat and she insisted a friend of mine stay off my property as long as she was there. She made subtle threats that she could not complete the work if she didn't get money up front because she had a couple accounts that had not paid her. She had a deadline to finish the project by June 15th. She never finished the project. The soil she brought in was no good and full of weeds. Her plants were full of bugs. A friend brought some Master Gardeners including one from the AK Botanical Gardens over who showed me all the things that would be a problem. We spent 2 weeks fixing her mess for a wedding. Another company just gave me an estimate of $13,000 to redo the pond that has fallen apart. I am still planting and changing out soil this year to fix her mess. I also found out that there are several court cases against her for fraud. Check the Public Files. There are many people in Anchorage, Eagle River, and Palmer that have had problems with her work. I've also heard that she has been banned from entering some businesses and trade shows in town. I've recently heard from other landscaping companies that she has a bad business reputation. I wish I had checked her out before hiring her, but thought that since she had a display at the Fair for several years she was reputable. My mistake. She's a good talker, don't trust her, don't fall into her trap.
