GRETNA – A landscaping service is being sued by a pair of homeowners who claim the business did unworkmanlike and defective work on their property.
Bonnie Knowles and D.E. Knowles filed suit against Mince Horticultural Services LLC and Dustin Mince in the 24th Judicial District Court on Nov. 6.
The Knowles allege they entered into a contract on May 31, 2013 with Mince Horticultural Services to provide landscaping services at their home. Under the contract the plaintiffs contend the defendants were to provide irrigation, labor, materials and other services. The Knowles assert while Mince Horticultural Services provided the services under the contract the end result was defective and the work was not completed in accordance with industry standards.
The defendant is accused of breach of contract, conversion of funds, unjust enrichment, fraud, unfair trade practices and false advertising.
An unspecified amount in damages is sought for compensation, treble damages and attorney’s fees.
The Knowles are represented by Thomas A. Roberts of New Orleans-based Barrasso Usdin Kupperman Freeman & Sarver LLC.
The case has been assigned to Division G Judge Robert A. Pitre Jr.
Case no. 744-058.
