I thought the individual who completed the landscape plans could have been a little more organized. The installers did their job. Not overly impressed with the products that were install.

's to schedule a free estimate. They did make the appointment but I felt that there was really no interest in my small project. Said he would send me estimate. After 2 week and I had not received my estimate I called. A few days later I received it in the mail and this is what it said...

Guess my job was too small. Too bad. Even If i had a huge job I would not call them or recommend.

was recommended by our building inspector. My husband has called or emailed 4 times in order to have them come out and construct a landscaping plan for us. No one, however, has returned phone calls or emails. I understand they may be very busy, but this seems quite unprofessional to me. We went with

I called
Madison Landscapers Provider Name Locked
after finding the profile on Angie's List. We had some pretty severe flooding in a recent storm. We were new to the home as well. We needed a complete regrade of the front yard, and to get our windows wells dug out and re-worked.

suggested a swail to direct water around the house and take advantage of the backyard to dissipate water flow.
Madison Landscapers Provider Name Locked
said new work was several weeks out, but he would see what he could do since it looked like we were in pretty rough shape. He was able to come two weeks earlier than he had anticipated, and completed the work almost $500 under budget.
Originally, he'd only planned two of the three window wells. The dug out all three and replaced with new wash stone, and raised the window wells as best they could. They also replanted and laid hay all over the front yard and the part of the back they worked on. The swail was covered with erosion netting to keep it in place while we grow the grass.
No nonsense. Easy to work with.

My husband hired
Madison Landscapers Provider Name Locked
because he had heard wonderful things about them. There were two purposes for the work. One was to fix a retaining wall that was sagging onto our neighbors property. The other was to improve drainage away from our foundation. $17,000 of the overall project cost was allocated to these two elements. The rear brick patio was an additional $10,000.

After the work was completed, our builder came to talk about finishing off our basement (now that the grading and water penetration issues were fixed--or so we thought). Our builder said that the grade had not been improved at all and the work needs to be re-done.

apparently excavated at the foundation (as they were supposed to) but did not lower the grade or improve the drainage. Rather, they replaced everything excavated with new topsoil, added some plants, and mulch right back up to the original grade. When we told
Madison Landscapers Provider Name Locked
the work needed to be re-done, he offered us a $700 credit and wanted to charge $5,000 more to re-do the work.



The brick patio looks good, but another landscaper that we hired to put in a
Madison Landscapers Provider Name Locked
told us that one side of the patio is sinking...and it's less than a year old. We are heartbroken that so much of our remodeling budget went to "improving drainage" and we did not get what we paid for. I am willing to pay a premium for good service but denying the mistake and expecting to charge me a second time to fix the mistake is inexcusable. In our case,

did not live up to its good reputation. We are very very disappointed customers.

They were very fast and very responsive. There work to find the leak and fix it was well done, very prompt, and at a good price.
They went above and beyond, even coming over on a weekend when we noticed a panel of siding that was bending near the work they did. They came over and fixed it within an hour of my email. Incredible!
They customer service throughout was excellent and their workmanship was, too.
We'd recommend them to all. we've already recommended them to a friend who has some interior work needed.

I provided a budget of $500 for labor and a maximum of $500 for cabinets and countertop. I was promised this was no problem. I purchased the cabinets and told him to pick them up when he got the countertop. He proposed a oak shelf for part of the countertop. I told him Ok as long as it is within budget. He installed everything and the oak shelf looks beautiful. I received the bill for over $588 in materials and $1500 for labor. Obviously it exceeded all approved budgets. I did not pay he bill in full.

They did an excellent and professional job, taking care around my existing plants, and keeping everything neat and tidy. The job was difficult and they did very impressive work. They worked hard and got it done in a timely fashion, and were extremely polite and fun to deal with. I would have them do more work in a heartbeat!

They were on time and completed the work on schedule. The staff was very professional and friendly. The lawn was left clean of debris when the work was completed. They held to the cost of the estimate that was provided in advance of the work being done. I will hire them again for any additional landscaping needs that I have.

An impressive landscape plan was designed and implemented by the
Madison Landscapers Provider Name Locked
team, with the tree planting and trellis construction subcontracted out. Initially, the work went well. The trees and shrubs were of high quality and seemed healthy. The company wanted to arrange for the planting during a severe summer drought, but I was advised by local tree experts to postpone the planting, which I did. After the late-summer planting, it was discovered that nearly all of the trees had been planted too deeply. I hired an a well-regarded local arborist and another experienced landscaper to confirm this, and after much prodding,
Madison Landscapers Provider Name Locked
agreed to grant a lifetime guarantee for the successful survival of the plantings. I decided it would be too stressful for the trees, some of which were large, to be replanted at the correct depths, especially since it was still very dry. Then, In 2013,
Madison Landscapers Provider Name Locked
planted a perennial garden that developed and thrived very well. The choice of plants was appropriate and looked well. But the firm was careless about billing on two separate occasions. The first was a second billing for items that were already paid for; the second for garden materials that were never delivered. They did make the corrections, but, again, this happened only after much prodding. The last complaint I have about
Madison Landscapers Provider Name Locked
concerns the newly-seeded lawn. The old lawn was dug up before the seeding, but among the new growth were many weeds that seemed to be survivors from the old lawn. When I pointed this out, I was told to just mow them over. No attempt was ever made to redo that part of the project.
