Landscaping reviews in Dorchester


Everything was great. It was night and day from what the lawn looked like previous to their work. The workers got there early as they said, worked hard, and the place looks perfect. They cleaned up extremely well and even touched up and cleaned around the patio and other places that weren't necessarily part of the project. Would definitely use again and recommend to others.

I like trees and I negotiated with my back yard neighbor permission to have a tree planted in her yard that would add value to both of our homes by there being over the course of time a big healthy tree in back of each of our houses. While I was at it, I also wanted to put a somewhat smaller tree in my side yard to screen out my kitchen windows from the neighbor's constant drunkfests. Whenever faced with a home improvement task costing more than $500, I always get 3 quotes through Angie's List providers.

distinguished himself from the other 2 highly rated providers by remembering to return my initial phone call and not dwelling extensively on how busy he was, and simply set up a time to do the quote. Then he came on time to the quote meeting, with a presentable appearance, listened and heard what I wanted. I had a list of about 20 trees I got from the City of Boston's helpful list of trees that do well growing Boston proper, and we were able to straightforwardly narrow it down to a red maple for the neighbor's yard, and he said he'd give me 3 options for the side yard tree. His price was very close to the 2nd quote, and the 3rd provider I never got a price from because he was, as his wife reminded me, too busy to come out even to do a quote until after almost a month after the 1st quote (which would have kept the 1st two quotes waiting for almost a month for the 3rd quote. So I chose

sent me my quote by e-mail and I liked that because e-mail can be easier for communicating. We decided on a

maple for the back yard neighbor's back yard and a clump birch for the side yard. The day after, I looked up more about

maple on the Internet and had second thoughts about it shedding leaves early in the fall season and being susceptible to pollution (I live in Dorchester). and called/e-mailed

to ask if I could change my mind and go with the red maple ("October

") like he first suggested, and he was fine with that. I sent him a short e-mail to confirm what we agreed on (type of trees, price, when we'd be planting, my address) so he'd have everything in one place. The day of the planting, today,

I am real happy with two young trees framing the back and side of my house and think they will do well over time. It was easy to work with M.J.

He had some problems getting the big machine down to my small backyard due to the small gate and fencing. Used my neighbors yard with a bigger gate. As I have a small yard, he went over the yard several times. I was satisfied with his work but wished he charged by the size of the yard.

Called on a Friday and the Owner initially responded quickly. He setup a meeting for that following Monday the walk through the yard and discuss what needed to be done. He showed up on Monday, did the walk through and we discussed the tasks and he he left stating he would send me an estimate on the cleanup and setting up regular maintenance by email. And then I never heard from him again. He ignored emails and phone calls.

I'm embarassed to realize that I've once again failed to write even a yearly review, which
Dorchester Landscapers Provider Name Locked
very much deserves.. She takes care of the place with little prompting from me--a good thing, since I forget what needs doing for weeks at a time--but is also available immediately whenever I have some chore that I'm fussing about. This means that I need not pay attention to our garden, but can get as involved as I like whenever I like. Last month, for instqnce, at the height of her busy season, she & a friend came and planted a bunch of annuals I'd bought but felt too feeble to stick in the ground.I only wish I had someone like this for every aspect of home maintence. Then I'd be free to do nothing but take the credit.

Overall the contractor was unreliable, would show up at his leisure and complain about other customers he had. Contractor was unprofessional and would not place adequate plastic covering over entry ways to avoid drywall dust from flying all over the house. The dust required me as the home owner to twice have to clean the house from top to bottom to remove. After being pressed to finish the job after months of doddling the contractor decided to not answer his phone and refused to finish the work for which he was paid.

From the first,
Dorchester Landscapers Provider Name Locked
has been remarkably helpful, and very patient. This year we are taking her advice, getting a big tree removed, and finally starting to upgrade our yard. Since I have very little energy to spare for this task, I wouldn't have undertaken it without her, & I'm especially grateful for her flexibility and willingness to approach the work in small steps.

Received prompt response to initial call. After telephone conversation and an email to arrange date/time to look at work to be done, arrived on schedule to view and give proposal; promptly received official proposal via email; arranged for evaluating undergound position of gas line(s); work started and proceeded efficiently and quickly; hauled away everything that needed to be hauled.

I first called
Dorchester Landscapers Provider Name Locked
in June, I believe, and told him that it was not important that the job be done immediately. He came and looked at the property. He had some very good suggestions for the area, as well as for ways to access it. He sent an estimate, which I approved. He suggested we talk in the middle of

. I called him, and he said he was aiming for August 1st, which was fine with me. I called him when I did not hear from him by August 1st, and he was able to come very quickly thereafter. He came with a whole crew of people who worked from morning to night to get the job done. They paid attention to detail and were very polite and easy to work with.

showed up on site several times to see how the work was progressing and make sure everything was being done to my specifications. He was very flexible and allowed me to add some things into the job that we had not agreed upon beforehand. There were only a couple of minor details that were not taken care of, such as putting sand into the cracks of the patio. I had also asked them, as an add on, to haul away a large amount of brush and branches that were left in my yard when a neighbor's tree fell into it. The part of the yard with the tree branches in it is not visible from the work site, so they forgot to take them, but I did not mention it when
Dorchester Landscapers Provider Name Locked
called about the work because it was an add on and I was able to take care of it myself. I also did the sand myself, but I am not sure if I did it right, having never done such a thing before. I hope it does not affect the patio adversely! Since I was not around when the patio portion of the work was done, I was not there to see how they put the fences back together.
Dorchester Landscapers Provider Name Locked
called to see how I liked the work and specifically asked how the fences were. Upon first glance, they seemed fine to me, but when I looked later I noticed that, although the fence is tight and aligned, not all the screws were put back into place. I could not find them anywhere, so I will have to buy new ones. I am sure that
Dorchester Landscapers Provider Name Locked
would have taken care of it, if I mentioned it, but, as I said, I didn't notice it at first. The clean up job they did on my neighbor's yard after accessing my yard was exceptional. For such a big job, I think the work was excellent, the owner and crew friendly and hardworking and the price reasonable. Thanks

I like them very much. I live on a block with neighbors who are very concerned about house values and appearances and example: we were away for a month - they lawn had grown to a point of 2 in. over required height. We found when we came back a letter from a neighbor chastising us for bringing down the neighborhood. This spring, one of the neighbors came over and cut it for us when it grew an inch. We really didn't want to offend them because we live here.
