NJ landscaper accused of swindling customers

A New Jersey-based landscaping company is the subject of a Kane In Your Corner investigation after homeowners lodged several complaints of contracting services they never

PERTH AMBOY - A New Jersey-based landscaping company is the subject of a Kane In Your Corner investigation after homeowners lodged several complaints of contracting services they never received.

Jason Bass of Perth Amboy says he paid $2,000 for landscape design services from GP Custom Land Design. Bass claims that he never saw Keith Genovese of GP Custom Land Design and that he never received the work he contracted. Bass wants his money back.

Genovese argues that he does not owe Bass the money because Bass was the one who backed out of the contract. He says he will issue Bass a full refund anyway.

Court records show that Genovese has dozens of judgments against him. Some of those judgments are against Genovese's old company, Unique Landscaping.

Before contracting a landscaper, homeowners should be sure that the company is a licensed home improvement contractor.

According to the Division of Consumer Affairs, neither Genovese nor GP Custom Land Design are licensed.
