"We had only one isue: one his men pulled a brick mounted hose reel off the side of the house accidentally. It may have been partly due to installation, but what was not acceptable was that the person did not tell us and just left it on the ground.
...more was a bit defensive, but we agreed that I would be responsible to repair it and he would do 2 mowings no charge.
The tree required a full size pneumatic jackhammer & ~ 2 hrs to make a hole large enought (love
limestone!). 2 months since plantings and everything he did appears to be thriving."

"I have used
to apply Dillo Dirt to some areas of my lawn that were struggling with iron deficiency and shallow soil 3 or 4 times in previous growing seasons. I was happy with the service and asked them to bid on another application to a difficult area this year. The bid was good (about $250), so I called them the next day to ...more schedule it. The scheduler put me off because she said they have one truck for this work and it was out of service. She would call me back when it was working. A week later I called back since I had heard nothing, and she scheduled it for a few days later. On the afternoon of the day they were scheduled to come, she called and said the truck had broken down again. So we eventually rescheduled for a 3rd try. I called on the morning of the day it was scheduled and was told the crew would show up between noon and 5. We got a call at 5 saying they were running late due to traffic but would be there in 30 minutes. An hour later (a few minutes before 6 pm) I called back to tell them to cancel because it was now too dark to do a good job of application. I had to leave a voice mail. At 6 pm the truck arrived, obviously in a big hurry because they drove right past the house at first and had to back up our narrow street to get back to our house. I went out before they could start anything and told them it was too dark to put the dirt on the yard and I had already called to cancel. One member of the two man crew told me he had asked the other, the driver, to cancel before coming because he knew they would get here too late. Five minutes after I went back in the house someone from
called and offered a $50 discount if I would have the crew go ahead with the work. I said no, it was too dark. The next day someone called back in response to the voice mail to confirm cancellation of the job. I told that person I was done with
for this kind of work and would find someone else. I got the work done by Lawn Ranger out of
the owner came out to my house and gave me a bid to put Dillo Dirt on about 2000 sq ft. His bid matched what ABC Pest and Lawn had given me. We scheduled the service for before 12 pm a few days later. His crew showed up about 10 am. The 2 man crew was polite and knew exactly what and where to apply the dirt. They used wheel ...more
to get the dirt in the right area and then leaf blowers to spread it out. I did have to remind them to blow away a
of leaves in one place before dumping the dirt there.
had told me that putting the dirt on top of the leaves would not work as well. The amount of dirt they applied was the right amount to cover the area. They cleaned up nicely and now I'm waiting for the bill to arrive."
make a great team. They bring different areas of expertise to their work. They will take guidance if offered and are equally comfortable with providing recommendations. Lawn service is provided for a weekly (or biweekly) rate, depending on what’s needed. “Extras” are performed at ...more an hour rate of ~ $70.00 / hour. Seems to me their services pricing is in line with the competition."
is a pleasure to work with and was responsive to our concerns about improving our landscaping. We had several consultation meetings before settling on a plan. I had initially focused on fixing our back yard, but
pointed out what a difference some changes to the front would make and she was absolutely ...more right (especially redesigning the front walkway). Scheduling the work was very easy, and the actual labor went much faster than I had initially anticipated. The front yard is 100% improved. And, our back yard (the initial reason I called
) now has definition to the grass line instead of just wandering off into the woods. Additionally, most of the new plantings in the back are doing very well (once the deer leave decided to leave them alone). I'm looking forward to seeing how the plantings develop over time.
made a great suggestion to install a patio below our small deck. However, for budget reasons, we need to postpone that for another time. She was completely open to doing things in phases. We will definitely be calling
"It went great. She worked me into her schedule, came when she said she would come and the cost was right on target with the estimate. She did a super job of cleaning, it was all in all a very pleasant experience. She took the time to visit with me and make some suggestions about what probably needed to be done."
"In May of 2010, we moved into this new house that needed some landscaping work and the yard didn't make the most of the outdoor space. After deciding to move forward with
, we met with the yard designer, who came up with 2 different designs and scaled illustrations based on what we were looking for. He also came up with ...more ideas that we hadn't thought of but loved, including screening in a covered patio that wasn't getting as much use as it should. Once we decided on the design,
& his crew got to work, and they were all profession, pleasant, and even helped me carry in groceries several times. Once everything was complete, we were so pleased with the overall work and the follow up and maintenance of the yard work. We would definitely use
for any future projects and would recommend them to anyone who's looking for quality work."
to be intelligent and capable, respectful and a good communicator. He was very good at listening to what I wanted done and offering suggestions on the best way to address the work. He knows how to use a variety of heavy machinery, has extensive landscaping experience, and has been a professional mover. He came when he ...more said he would and worked hard while he was here. He is an honest man and a pleasure to work with."
"I paid $5,000 for that work. It took them 2 weeks and I still have big piles of mulch on my property. The goal was to open up a balcony view where I see down past them.
runs the company and he personally comes out for the consult at the beginning of the bid and is really good about taking a general direction implementing. ...more I did exactly what I what, even though I am describing things in a very general sense. My neighbors hired another company for tree trimming and theirs looks very artificial, but mine looks very happy and like each tree is done individually. My neighbor?s trees look like all the limbs start almost exactly at the same height, but with these guys you go in and tell them exactly how to trim each tree and it works out better. His prices are not the lowest, but I think it is reasonable and the service is good. I live very close to where he lives, but still it is good that he comes out personally. The last time they did the back balcony view.
