Was very prompt. Also did the job when it was convenient for us. Quality of work was excellent. Also gave us directions to make the difference in getting the lawn ready for next spring.

Their crew was prompt and efficient. They were on the job when as scheduled, and kept the work area clean at the end of the work day. Even with the rain delay they were able to finish the project on schedule. We would definitely use them again.

They did an excellent job. They were prompt. They cleaned up after themselves. They were very thorough. They had to take down the fence to bring in their equipment. They put the fence back up with no problems.

Awful. After he advised us on what he was planning to do and plant, the work was started shortly after. After following watering instructions, all the Arbor's died. When I tried for months to contact Mr.
Peoria Landscapers Provider Name Locked
, he NEVER returned any calls. The plants were under warranty and he tried to avoid me. I finally approached him as he was working for our neighbor and he was very nervous, scratching his chin and avoiding eye contact. I asked him why the bushes died and said he didnt know but would replace them. They died again and he finally admitted they do not do well in shade. and had no answer to why he planted them there --- TWICE! Offered then to replace them but I had enough and just had them pulled out and did not want to deal with him again. Two of the smaller plants also died. Also, he did not put weed prevention material under the rocks into the ravine and weeds are now growing through them. After having another landscaper come out last summer, we had more rock put into ravine and he put the weed prevention material down and said the other rocks should have been done the same way. We definately would not recommend him. His lack of knowledge and inability to return phone calls was unacceptable and very stressful. We do not recommend him and would be a good idea to get 2 or 3 estimates or recommendations.And every detail in writing.

We got several bids to install the flagstone retaining wall around the front 11' x 7' planter bed and to install 160 feet of single
Peoria Landscapers Provider Name Locked
brick edging along the back planter bed.

had just completed installing a paver patio for one of the neighbors and they were very pleased. The quotation that he presented was in line with others and we decided to go ahead with
Peoria Landscapers Provider Name Locked
. The front planter project was suppose to take one day with 2 guys. On the day of the project, only
Peoria Landscapers Provider Name Locked
showed up. While he did a good job, it took twice as long. The quality is very nice and he followed up right away and corrected a major drainage problem that was created. When this work was completed we paid him for this portion of the project.

was suppose to located the color of bricks which match the existing brick edging that is prominent throughout the yard. The brick edging was suppose to take one day to install and we were flexible on the installation date. It was not urgent to install and we were flexible with his farming schedule and his schedule with Rainbow Playsets. His coworker showed up at the door one day with two bricks. He said "This is the best that we can match. Please pick one." I showed them to my wife and she rejected both. One was tan and one was blueish. Our bricks were a brownish-red color. Fall turned to Winter and the project was put on hold because of the weather and to give
Peoria Landscapers Provider Name Locked
more time to located the correct bricks. Once Spring arrived we locked in the first week of June for installation because it would be after planting season for his farming business. I inquired about the bricks and he still hadn't found them. I decided to go looking for the bricks. The first store that I went to, Illini Brick and Stone, had the bricks. I was informed that it was Uni-lock Brown and it was discontinued but that they had 3 times as many as I needed in stock. I quick called
Peoria Landscapers Provider Name Locked
and informed him that I had located bricks for the project. He asked me to secure the bricks because he wouldn't be able to pick them up quick enough. I purchased the bricks and brought them to the project site. I informed
Peoria Landscapers Provider Name Locked
that I had the bricks and they would be available when he showed up for the installation. One week went after another and he never showed and he never returned any of my phone calls for follow up. Finally in
Peoria Landscapers Provider Name Locked
I left a message on his voicemail to confirm if the project was still a "GO" or not. He sent me a
Peoria Landscapers Provider Name Locked
email stating, "Find a new contractor." How unprofessional is that. it's clear that he was stringing us along which is surprising since it was such a
Peoria Landscapers Provider Name Locked
job and would have been very profitable for him. In the end we cut ties with
Peoria Landscapers Provider Name Locked
and they are no longer welcome to bid on future projects. Since I had the bricks onsite already, I purchased the required mortor and installed them myself. They look great and it was a big cost savings.

Rock border was done great! Beautiful border. From there it went downhill. Redid the beds in the front of the house. Laid a soaker hose system which was suppose to be UNDER the weed mat, but laid on top of the mat.
Peoria Landscapers Provider Name Locked
SWORE that was the correct way, but as would be expected, the soaker hose came through the trap rock on top and had to be removed. Plants were placed into the ground without and depth (the ones that died we replaced and found them sitting on top of the soil) and without opening up the roots. Pulled out of the container and just stuck on the ground. Numerous plants died. He swore he would come back and finish, but never did. Made the terrible mistake to pay him in full BEFORE all of the work was completed. BIG MISTAKE!! Our opinion of
Peoria Landscapers Provider Name Locked
went from "Whatever
Peoria Landscapers Provider Name Locked
says we go with!" to "Whatever
Peoria Landscapers Provider Name Locked
says you go the other way!" From believing this guy was the best and fairest thing that hit landscaping, to NEVER hiring him again for another job! If you do hire him, and his stone work is truly outstanding, watch him carefully and DO NOT PAY HIM IN FULL UNTIL THE WORK IS COMPLETELY FINISHED! This experience was EXTREMELY upsetting!

Mr.
Peoria Landscapers Provider Name Locked
Palm of
Peoria Landscapers Provider Name Locked
was contacted in early April of 2012
In regard to providing an estimate for upgrading old foundation
plantings and property line plantings in the back yard of our residence.
The property was purchased by us in February of 2011. As is the case
with many 30+ year old houses the foundation plantings were basically
out of control. Very large evergreens dominated the foundation beds
along with a old broken Redbud tree. The back yard property line beds
were also old and out of control.
Peoria Landscapers Provider Name Locked
made an appointment and met with
us to determine out needs and desires in types of plantings.The removal
of the old evergreens would not be included in his estimate per my
request. Within a couple of weeks he set up another appointment to go
over his proposal with us. He was very well prepared and flexible with
changes requested.
Peoria Landscapers Provider Name Locked
is very knowledgeable as a registered landscape
architect and had many excellent ideas in plant types and color mixes
throughout the seasons down to Red Twig Dogwoods in the back for color
against the snow in winter. He left a complete set of color layouts with
us and we took a few days to look at these and weigh them against the
three other bids we had obtained.
Peoria Landscapers Provider Name Locked
's price and his stunning design
were the deciding factors.

I called him a few days later and
asked when they could start. By then we were into early June and he told
us The first part of
Peoria Landscapers Provider Name Locked
would be scheduled. His crew showed up in the
first part of
Peoria Landscapers Provider Name Locked
and the work was completed in early August. His crew
members with
Peoria Landscapers Provider Name Locked
were very competent and skilled in their
trade.
Peoria Landscapers Provider Name Locked
worked well with me and was very willing to make a couple
of changes as we went along.

The job site was completely cleaned up and debris hauled away daily.

We
are very happy with the design and in particular with the quality of
the work provided by
Peoria Landscapers Provider Name Locked
. I certainly would call them
again.

I guess you get what you pay for. I needed a new retaining wall at one of my rental properies and went with the cheapest bid. A bid which was simply emailed to me and stated somethig to the following "Build new retaining wall on property at <address> for $1100." None of the specific details that we had even discussed on the phone were included in the quote. Not very professional.
Although I had originally requested the use of deadman for strength, Jerod assured me his turnbuckle system was even better. However, after only a couple months, the wall was already leaning as much as 6 inches at the top. I phoned him and he said he would fix the issue. But I had to phone him several more times over the next few months because he did not show up. He always had plenty of excuses why he was unable to get there. He did finally arrive to fix the problem and it was discovered that one of his turnbuckles had never been properly tightened down to begin with.
Also, in the course of the repair, he used his bobcat to push the wall back up. This ended up cracking the top 6x6 landscape timber. It looks terrible now. I have called him several times but he has never called me back. My understanding from my last actual phone call with Jerod was that he was filing for bankruptcy. I imagine my 10 year warrant on the wall is now defunct.
Additionally, the final bill was more than the original quote. He claimed that Menards would not honor the price they had quoted him on the landscape timber. At least he did call me before he started the work to tell me the landscape timber was going to cost a couple hundred more than the original quote.
It's a shame he was not more professional and responsive, as I would have hired him for several landscaping jobs at my new house.

The project went well, I was concerned with whether it was too late in the season for seeding to germinate but after two weeks I have a good stand of grass in the newly seeded areas.
