"We just needed some mulch delivered and the price was very fair. The delivery was on time and the driver was great, very friendly and courteous. Would use in the future for sure.

and his crew arrived a little late; however, I did not mind. Once there they went right to work. They did not take breaks.
considered my input for the pond and waterfall. He is amazing. His crew works ...more with him with very little prompting on his part. When it came time to put in the stones surrounding the pond and for the waterfall,
hand laid all the stack stone. He took care to be certain the pond was natural looking (as much as a waterfall in
can be natural looking). He added bog plants in the colors I requested and took care in the transfer of my fish into their new pond.
It was an easy (for me) and exciting process to see it being built. I was happy with the friendliness and responsiveness of
and his crew. They will be the ones to provide on-going care for my pond. "

arrived early on Monday morning. As I said we had tried to help so we had removed all the overgrown foilege, had our guys cut a big square hole in the middle of the patio (mistake). No design! You really need to leave it to the experts.They came with felt, EPDM ...more (rubbery lining), shovels, filters, lights, boulders, rocks, stones & pebbles and went to work. By 2PM we had foundation built and even had water in it, They arrived on Tuesday and installed the filter, built the water fall and we had our design in place. We skipped Wednesday but Thursday we had our water feature lighted and planted. It was a remarkable addition to our patio. We now sit and sip some wine to the sound of a waterfall. Life is GOOD!

"He did a great job on the travelers palm and gave me detailed instructions on care. The travelers palm is doing wonderfully. I ordered the foxtail palm yesterday and he is scheduled to come today for planting. His plants are healthy and large, and the prices are great. He also has fruit trees and shrubs, and he keeps his inventory list updated on his website."
"We purchase almost all of our outdoor plants from
. The variety is outstanding and the staff is helpful. They will assist with a landscape design, offer ideas based on sunlight requirements and desired look. There is a full section geared toward butterfly gardens. The warranty on the plants makes it worth the little extra we pay."
"Out of the many subcontractors we had working on our new home,
Nursery was the only one that we experienced one issue after another.
set up a date/time for my wife and I to take a 45 minute drive to
only to learn
or his wife were not present. We ...more were told that
was running late. Twenty minutes later,
arrived and did not apologize for his tardiness. We were then told his wife was not going to attend the meeting but she would design the plans later.
2. As we walked around the nursery, we immediately noted everything was in disarray and some of the plants and trees did not appear to be healthy.
assured us the plants and trees were fine just some wind damage.
3. We moved to FL from NH and we were very explicit to
we wanted a "tropical" design with palm trees, orange birds of paradise, hibiscus, and citrus trees.
tried to convince us to plant Maple, Oak and Birch trees which we were very much against. We were very clear that we liked to have a Canary Island palm tree in front of the house.
4. We were suppose to meet the following week to review the plans as promised but
failed to meet that deadline.
5. Day before landscaping installation, we get a call to meet
at the house to review the plans.
just walked around the lot saying he was going to plant shrubs, trees and it would look good. No plans or clear identification of what he was going to plant. We had no idea what he was going to plant.
6 Day of installation, we noticed a Birch tree was installed in front of the house; we asked for a
Orange tree and got a Red Navel Orange tree; shrubs installed around the AC Units and Pool Filter which has to be removed afterwards under the recommendations of the Building Inspector. Pool was lined with Hibiscus plants and two White Birds of Paradise and
plants.Just about everything we had requested was not honored and we suspect
got rid of his junk plants etc.
7. Day of installation,
asked what we wanted for the front of the house. I was surprised he didn't factor in the front of the house and we agreed he would install Mexican Petunias. Later in the afternoon, he demand another $200,00 for planting Mexican Petunia plants. When the builder inquired why we had pay an additional $200,
lied and told the builder he never asked for $200.00. BOLD FACE LIAR!
8. After the winter, we noticed the Birch tree was in very bad condition and appeared to be dying.
requested photos of the tree, watering, pest control, fertilization schedules and then refused to respond back. We contacted
and he openly accused us of purposely killing the tree. We had to seek the advice of another nursery in Oveido to assist us and were able to save the tree. Fact is the irrigation to the Birch tree and 2 other trees were never turned on from the date of installation. We also learned the birch tree
planted is a White River Birch tree which requires lots of water and strives better in colder climates.
9. We also noticed some of the plants such as the
plants were all planted in full sun and had to be transplanted. As a matter of fact, we totaly removed all the plants along the pool and had to purchase and install new plants.
10. Never got the Orange Birds of Paradise as we requested but got two White Birds of Paradise which require more maintenance.
11. Irrigation heads were installed on each side of the pool pump had to be relocated.
12 We asked for green vegetation to climb the brick wall in our back yard. A year later the plantings are not climbing so we brought a sample to the another nursery only to find out
which will never climb. Once again, we asked
to make good on this and he requested photos and measurements. After two weeks he responded saying because we submitted a negative review on another site, he would not correct his mistake. Further he demanded he pay him $200 for the work done last year.
that I would filing a complaint in Civil Court and with the Better Business Bureau regarding his services.
boldly responded in an email message dated 11/23/12: "you can proceed as you wish, just keep in mind that we had no contract with you and the contract we had signed by the builder reflects exactlly what we had delivered." How is that for professional customer service?
Nursery is NOT the place to purchase and/or install landscaping. Knowing what we know today, we were better off gong to Lowes or Home Depot for a better selection, professional advice and better pricing.
is very unprofessional, dishonest and frankly I am of the opinion that he is not as qualified as he wants you to believe. "
