Law firm files suit against Complete Landscaping citing breach of contract

WICHITA — In a lawsuit filed last week, a Texas law firm claims Wichita’s Complete Landscaping has failed to pay more than $143,000 that it last month signed a consent agreement to pay.

Loewinsohn Flegle Deary filed the lawsuit in Sedgwick County District Court.

According to the suit, Complete Landscaping hired the firm in 2009 to represent it in another lawsuit, which “was successfully settled in approximately October 2010.”

An exhibit in the current lawsuit shows that Complete Landscaping president Laura McMurray signed a consent agreement on Sept. 9 to pay $143,251.45, which is the balance for the law firm’s services.

The lawsuit says Complete Landscaping also owes $1,574.19 in interest.

McMurray and her in-house legal counsel declined comment.

No one with Loewinsohn Flegle Deary returned a call for comment.

Complete Landscaping Systems to move into Baldridge Electric space on East Second; Baldridge looking for new space

WICHITA — With its recent acquisition of Green Thumb, Complete Landscaping Systems is expanding its space by buying the building next to its current headquarters at 1727 E. Second St.

George Baldridge of Baldridge Electric wasn’t looking to move from 1717 E. Second St., but he didn’t mind either.

“Part of it’s downsizing,” Baldridge says. “We just have a lot more inventory than we need to have, and the times are tough.”

His current building is 8,000 square feet with another 12,000 square feet of yard area.

Baldridge would like to find another building in that area that’s about 5,000 square feet with at least 1,000 square feet of land for trucks and material.
