Having tenants 'manage' upgrades/repairs

I just started reading 'Landlording in Autopilot' and just read about having great tenants take over cosmetic projects such as replacing carpet. In the book the author states this allows tenant to take ownership in their home and just creates a better relationship between tenant and landlord. He explains he has the tenant find the carpet they want and the installer and then give the bill to the landlord to write the check. I'm just curious if you more experienced landlords have ever tried this and what were the results? I'm on my first house and this concept makes me a little nervous! Thanks!
