came to the house within a couple of days of my initial call. He made notes of what we wanted and made suggestions. We signed the contract and paid 40% up front. The work was scheduled promptly, although it was delayed about a week because of very rainy weather.
was very communicative via email.
He brought a crew with him on the day promised, and they accomplished the work in about 3 hours. They were polite, careful, and neat. We are very happy with the work. We asked
to put us on the list for spring clean-up and mulching.

They were able to restore the shape of my beds, eliminated all the weeds, and put down 20 bags of mulch. They also cleared my back fence. My yard looks great! We will definitely doing additional work with them!

These guys were amazing. My flower beds were badly neglected and they left them looking wonderful. Angel told me when he looked at the job that they might not get it done in four hours, but they did. They worked very hard and it showed. I would certainly call them again, and have recommended them to others.

In short, I am dissatisfied with the service we received. The work on my yard was very
Columbus Landscapers Provider Name Locked
: grade the front and back flat and plant new seed throughout the whole yard. A&M were low by a significant margin, but I went with their service due to the positive reviews. When their laborer arrived with the Bobcat, I walked him through the yard and explained what I was wanting. Throughout the day, several issues arose: 1) I had called
Columbus Landscapers Provider Name Locked
the week prior to him performing the work asking if he would relocate topsoil that we had in two large raised bed gardens. He said it would be no problem. The morning before they started, I helped the laborers move the raised beds to the new location. However, later in the day, the topsoil was nowhere to be seen and the raised beds were empty. I called
Columbus Landscapers Provider Name Locked
but did not receive a response. At the end of the day when he showed up onsite, he told me that there was sand in the back and their rubber-tire bobcat was having problems getting traction to pick up the topsoil. I don't question the truthfulness of the statement, but regardless, they should have called and asked what we wanted them to do instead of spreadying/burying the topsoil which cost us over $150 to purchase and a half day to place. We now have to re-do the garden beds completely. 2)
Columbus Landscapers Provider Name Locked
and I talked over what to do with the front yard during the initial quote. We had a silver maple and he warned that if they run into roots, they'll have to keep it high or we might not get grass to grow. I agreed and told him to do his best and get it as low as he can to try to match the height of our patio. About mid-afternoon on their workday, I went outside and saw that nothing was done to the front. I talked to their laborer and told him what I was wanting. He understood and started working but when I went out the next time, they were spreading seed and very little work was done. Half the yard hadn't been touched at all and the large front bed I have had ruts in it where he clearly stopped the Bobcat part way. I asked him what the problem was and he told me that he talked to
Columbus Landscapers Provider Name Locked
and was told that we agreed that they weren't going to do anything to the front because of the Maple. This left our yard truly looking terrible. Not only did they not take out almost any of the existing grass in the front (which I was expecting them to remove), but they left an area next to our sun room untouched. When
Columbus Landscapers Provider Name Locked
arrived after the crew left, he reiterated what the Laborer said and tried to argue with me about extra work they had done in removing wood chips from ground stumps. Eventually he did touch up the area next to the sun-room the next Monday and attempted to clean up the area in front of the patio but it still looks bad. There is a section in the middle of the front that has water ponding. He never did take out the existing sod and plant new seed even though I clearly stated during the quote to grade the entire yard and plant new seed throughout the whole yard. 3) After their laborer left, prior to
Columbus Landscapers Provider Name Locked
coming around 5:00 PM, I looked in the back and found they completely neglected to finish grading one section of the yard. The west side of our patio in the back had not been backed up and there was a foot wide by 8" deep trench around our patio. They actually seeded this area as if that would have been satisfactory. When I walked around with
Columbus Landscapers Provider Name Locked
, he recognized the issue straight away and said that he'd have the guys come back the next Monday and fix it. They did come back and fix it, which was great, but I was really disappointed to come out and see the lack of quality. 4) Once again, after their laborer left and prior to
Columbus Landscapers Provider Name Locked
's arrival, I noticed that the back was not level whatsoever. There was a large hump where an old tree root used to be and a valley directly in the middle of the yard. There was also a very choppy area in the back corner next to where the raised bed's used to be where the laborer said he was having a tough time getting to with the Bobcat due to the sandy soil. I commented on these things to
Columbus Landscapers Provider Name Locked
and he said he'd see what they could do when his guy came back on Monday. When the laborer did come back, I pointed out the major valley in the yard. He told me that he'd do what he can but he might not have enough dirt to do anything about it. The problem with this is that they had already removed 2 loads of dirt the first day! In the end, he didn't do anything at all to these two areas. Thankfully, it rained late that afternoon and we have significant ponding in both locations. I called
Columbus Landscapers Provider Name Locked
at 7:15PM and left a message informing him of this major problem and told him I have pictures if he wants me to send them to him. They still had their Bobcat sitting in my back yard at the time, so they could have remedied the situation without another mobilization.

came out at 11:30 AM on Tuesday to inspect the area and noticed the two mud pits where water had been pooling. He offered to come out and put down topsoil in these areas after the grass has started growing, but didn't think anything could be done prior to that. In conclusion, working with A & M has been a cause of major frustration. The work was
Columbus Landscapers Provider Name Locked
: grade and seed the whole yard. In the end, they only graded and seeded PART of the yard and the areas they did grade, they did a below average job. When talking with
Columbus Landscapers Provider Name Locked
after project completion, he did take off the sales tax and offer to remedy the valley in the yard with topsoil after grass sprouted. This was appreciated, but still did not leave me a satisfied customer.
Columbus Landscapers Provider Name Locked
informed me that there must have been a breakdown in communication at the time of quote in that he had different ideas about what I was wanting/expecting. The problem is, all the other 3 quotes I received did not have these problems.
Columbus Landscapers Provider Name Locked
stated that if we would have added topsoil, it would have been a much better end product. I agree with that, but that does not justify all the issues that I stated above, especially not the failure to grade and seed the ENTIRE yard. Overall,
Columbus Landscapers Provider Name Locked
did make an effort to make us happy, which is why i'm not giving a worse rating, but the end product was sub par. I would not recommend them to others.

While the proposal was reasonable, we determined that we would be able to do the work ourselves at less expense. We very much appreciated Mr.

The work looks good and they worked hard. The weather this Spring made it hard to get something scheduled, which is understandable, and they kept me in the loop about when they could get there---responded quickly to emails and checking in about times. Next year I will buy the deal a lot earlier in Spring--beginning of March or earlier so that I am earlier on the list. I think it was a problem for every landscaper in town. Driveway sealers, too. Well, just about any outdoor work that homeowners needed to have done! I am always looking for a steal in price, so while what they did was worth it, $349 is still a chunk of change out of my budget. I don't know that I could have found a better deal though, so that is just my own personal money concern.

We went to
Columbus Landscapers Provider Name Locked
's annual fall tree sale. We found the size of tree that we liked which narrowed our
Columbus Landscapers Provider Name Locked
to only those trees. Then Mr.
Columbus Landscapers Provider Name Locked
showed us a tree that they had for awhile in above ground inventory. It was mildly damaged, but the tree would out grow it. He offered us a discount and to take care of the damage (i.e. removed a broken limb). The discounted purchase price included planting and staking and carried a 1 year warranty.
Due to weather conditions this past winter, Peobody was finally able to plant the tree this spring. We now enjoy a 20' tall tree in our front yard again. This replaces a mature tree that was blown down 2 summers ago. The tree is surviving this summer heat and didn't even show any shock as plants typically do when transplanted.
We were very pleased with the service, the tree, and the folks we dealt with.

The area is now a showpiece, including a new garden shed designed to fully integrate with the residence. The service goes beyond landscaping, is really an architectural company that works with the whole space. Very pleased with the result.
The three serpentine walls hold back the hillside, while providing new planting beds for trees, shrubs, flowers, along with a fantastic lawn area winding around the property. The loss of 10+ ash trees meant loss of the roots too, with nothing in place to keep the hillside from sliding into a nearby creek, taking the house with it. This solution fixed the problem elegantly.
Final plantings are in process, using a non-
Columbus Landscapers Provider Name Locked
related service. Even at this stage, have had lots of traffic in driveway, people who want a closer look!
Have used

I am extremely pleased with the service provided. The owner showed up to assess the project excatly when he was scheduled to do so. The estimate was provided within 24 hours of the meeting as promised. The crew that completed the work did so when scheduled and with great results. I couldn't be more pleased with how well
Columbus Landscapers Provider Name Locked
handled the entire process up to and including the gorgeous finished product! There was actually a miscommunication on part of what I wanted planted (my fault for not clearly explaining my needs) and they came out the next day to do the additional work. I would HIGHLY recommend this company to anyone and am pleased we have contracted them for ongoing maintenance.

Angel and his crew arrived at 8:30 in the morning and worked continually, sometimes in rain drizzle, until 6:30 that evening. They were able to complete the job in one day even though the estimate was 2-3 days, depending on weather. They were good workers and did an excellent job. I was particularly pleased the way the patio connected to the stucco side of the garage/house and the steps of our porch. They also had to build the paver patio beside a basement window and two rain drain pipes. Since the ground behind the house and garage is on a slight decline, they had to level the ground and grade the dirt from the patio to the retaining wall. They did a very good job of cleaning the area after the work was completed.
