Landscaping reviews in Winter Park
Re Cost: The original agreed-upon quote was for $10,000. During the installation, we needed a new sprinkler timer which would cost “a couple hundred dollars”; and on another that the sprinkler guy was charging “a couple hundred dollars” more than anticipated. I foolishly okayed these expenses over the phone. When the final bill came, I expected an over-run of about $500, based on two “couple hundred dollar quotes”. It was $1,500 over !! [Also note, unknown to me for well over a month, the sprinklers were incorrectly running in the back yard and watering just stones.

There were several delays, but we were promised the completion date would be met. In 2009, we had a new front screen porch installed by another company. In laying the pavers for the new walkway,
Overall: As mentioned, the final bill was $1,500 over the original quote. Since the screen door had not been repaired when the bill was presented, I held back $500 as an incentive.
cleaned up inside a screened area and the yard. They bagged up all the trimmings. They stayed about 1-1/2 hrs.
The ground was cleared, 4 zone irrigation system installed, driveway torn up and widened, pavers installed, including walk to front door, plants, trees and grass in place, all in about 3 1/2 days. My yard is beautiful; the talk of the neighborhood.
The crew with Linus was outstanding. They were polite, worked well together, seemed in constant motion. No one standing around. The area was cleaned up each day, nothing just laying around. Even my neighbors commented on how they worked.
I definitely got my money's worth and couldn't have asked for anything better. ”
