The yard was completely out of control, covered with weeds and debris from a large birch stump that was removed and stump-ground. They removed all of that along with several rhodies and azaleas that were diseased and dying. They rototilled soil amendments in, top dressed where the lawn went in, fertilized and laid sod.

, the lead on the job was great to work with. He was very accommodating and flexible. He even modified our irrigation system so we weren't wasting water and programmed the controller. I would absolutely use them again and recommend them to our friends and neighbors.

Portland Landscapers Provider Name Locked
was our main contact we had met at a Garden show. He was very helpful there and was responsive with in a couple days of our initial contact to get a bid. He offered several suggestions that were very practical and options that he broke down into several sections for a menu of what we might want to choose and move forward on....More /> We choose just two on the list due to budget constraints. Expanding our patio area and installing a sprinkler system in front an back yards. The crew that showed up worked hard and finished the work in just over 2 weeks time.

Called Rich to schedule an appointment. All scheduling was done by email. We had an appointment set up for Thursday this week, August 7th, at 12:30. Waited at home, and waited, and waited. Finally called Rich some time in the afternoon and he said he had forgotten to write it down. One strike, but understandable. We rescheduled for today at 10 am. At 10, no Rich. Waited and waited until 10:15 at which time I had to leave to do errands. Left Rich a note saying I couldn't wait any longer. I don't know if Rich ever came.
A contractor who doesn't write down appointments or doesn't keep them is not one I want to deal with, even though the services they provide sounded attractive.

I wanted to get rid of the steep grade on our front property.
Portland Landscapers Provider Name Locked
, the owner, suggested to terrace the slope and build a second wall to match the first wall at the street level. We liked his suggestions and the price.
Portland Landscapers Provider Name Locked
and
Portland Landscapers Provider Name Locked
did an excellent job all around, but especially in building a wall to match the original which remains. They were very cooperative and easy to work with. They did a good job installing the sod, rototiling the new flat surface so we could replant, and cleaning up everything. Highly recommend this company.

Working with
Portland Landscapers Provider Name Locked
(PR) could have gone more smoothly. The workers at the site were professional, polite, and very nice. If I had any questions or concerns, they promptly and appropriately addressed them. However, working with management was very stressful at times and, in one instant, completely neglectful and they missed an opportunity to demonstrate appropriate and responsive customer service. Below were the major issues:
1.
Portland Landscapers Provider Name Locked
, the owner, was very nice and polite in the initial contract process. The drafted contract for the landscaping design included both the front and the backyard. However,
Portland Landscapers Provider Name Locked
only completed the backyard design. He said that the front yard would be extra. So, why was it included in the contract that he drafted? Since I didn't want any conflict so early in the process, I decided to pass on this as I vaguely recalled he mentioned this when he came to give us our initial bid. But, still, why was the front yard design included in the contract? Something he should address so it doesn't happen again with other clients. Attention to detail is critical when drafting a contract.
2. It took over a month to get a starting date even after PR cashed my initial payment. I had to call/email multiple times and it became very uncomfortable to ask for a date. They kept giving me the run around and kept saying "we don't know." I understand that it's summertime and they may be swamped with work but something like "we have 5 projects ahead of you and we are looking at the third week of
Portland Landscapers Provider Name Locked
." I can work with this. Communication is an area of improvement.
3. When the project finally started, the workers did not complete a new drainage system before they left for the weekend on a Friday. They did not connect the gutter to the underground drain. Unfortunately, it rained that weekend and the water went straight into my foundation and leaked into my basement bedroom- not much but enough to wet the carpet. I was very upset as this was preventable and negligent on their behalf. I emailed PR on Sunday (when it rained) and sent pictures documenting the water cascading straight into the foundation. I expected some sort of response from
Portland Landscapers Provider Name Locked
and/or
Portland Landscapers Provider Name Locked
(the operations manager) but all I got was silence. To this day, they did not acknowledge my email. When the workers arrived the next morning I told them that that was the first thing they had to complete. They were completely professional and completed that part of the project immediately which I was very grateful. Although the workers fixed the problem immediately, management could have just emailed apologizing for the incident and that their men would take care of it. That's all they had to do and I would have been fine with that email response. But they didn't, which tells me how much they care about providing good customer service.
In the end, PR did a fantastic job and I love my backyard. However, the stress of working with them and the disregard to my email was unacceptable. I will be looking elsewhere for future landscaping of my front yard and my rental. Friends and neighbors have complimented us on our landscaping and asked about PR. I said they did a fine job, but wouldn't recommend them. Sorry.

First met with
Portland Landscapers Provider Name Locked
in May about removing our lawn on steep slope, landscaping the yard and replacing our backyard cedar fence. He asked me a lot of questions to get an idea of what kind of plants & look I liked. He was pretty patient with me as it took about 2 months of emails back & forth to come up with a plan & price that would work. The plan included some boulder planting areas & 2 trees on the slopes with groundcover, a flagstone pathway around the house, pavers & 2 trees in the front parking strip, a tree, some plants & river rock on side parking strip, a new back fence with trellis, and a drip irrigation system on a timer.
Began the job in late June & took about 3 weeks to complete. The crew, Pat &
Portland Landscapers Provider Name Locked
were friendly & extremely hard working guys.
They answered all our questions & Pat gave me a lot of plant info.
It was pretty interesting to watch them set the boulders & when the plants & trees got in I was excited, it all looked so colorful. There was one plant type I wasn't happy with & they returned them for another type I liked. The watering system makes life so much easier.
The entire job turned out beautiful & have received lots of positive comments from neighbors & strangers.
Portland Landscapers Provider Name Locked
was great to work with and has some creative ideas.
We will hire
Portland Landscapers Provider Name Locked
& his crew again for any future projects.

They removed the ivy and disposed of it. All went well and yes we would use them again as they come out monthly and take care of the yard. We are pleased with the service. The only downside is that we never know when they will be here, but as long as they take care of the yard we are okay.

The technician arrived on time and serviced the sprinkler system within one hour. Very efficient worker and he completed the work so that the system would allow watering for the whole yard on a timer. Very satisfied with the work

A site visit was made to discuss what we were looking for which was ; Concept drawings to improve the "
Portland Landscapers Provider Name Locked
appeal" of our front walkway stairs and porch.
The ANL rep took photos and described their design process and what they would provide in their "deliverables". After several weeks they sent me one design concept video with several design sketches utilizing pavers for the walkway and stairs with a wood deck for the porch. Although the design concept was attractive, I mentioned several issues and asked for an edit. They made the changes and sent me the revised sketches. No follow up by ANL after this point.
The overall effort was okay, the sketches and video were average (as a retired engineer the 3d video was nice but I've utilized it for modelling with much higher complexity, resolution etc..)
This exercise might have been more productive with a Landscape Architect ... several concepts would have provided instead of just one, also some follow up by the ANL designer would have been nice. My opinion is that the company is better suited to providing a turn key service for designing and constructing a completed design/plan versus conceptual development of new ideas.
