Bailey Island Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
came by to look over our yard, provide an estimate on a one-time spring clean up job, and look over some areas of our plant beds to suggest additional plantings. He spent a fair amount of time talking over some options with me, and had some good ideas and understood what our bigger vision was for the yard. As part of the estimate,
Bailey Island Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
spent a lot of time researching various plant replacements and communicating with me on availability, etc. He went above and beyond on this angle.
Scheduling the job took a little longer. It was mostly unlucky timing, as
Bailey Island Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
was in between a couple vacations previously scheduled, which he did a good job communicating with me. The work was completed on the day scheduled, and was more or less to expectations. One small issue was that his crew removed some existing plantings as part of the cleanup, and
Bailey Island Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
quickly agreed to replace those items along with the additional plantings planned for later in the spring. I was pleased with the work and resolution.
We had planned on getting back to the additional plantings later in spring when nurseries had greater plant availability. Unfortunately, due to some other issues with work load, etc,
Bailey Island Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
wasn't able to get back out to get the plantings installed. After a few communications, we agreed to have
Bailey Island Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
purchase all the new and replacement plantings, deliver them, and I would install them. His solution worked well for me, so I was overall pleased. Communication during this time was a little more sporadic, as it seemed his work load greatly increased, so there were some periods of communication gaps.
We had a couple hiccups, but overall I was pleased with
Bailey Island Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
and his work, and I would use him again.

is a professional and kind man....however the work provided by his company has become quite literally a joke in my neighborhood. The trees were planted only after repeated contact with
Bailey Island Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
to complete the job in the promised time frame. Two workers came out to remove old bushes and split some grass but they had no idea why they were there. There was no communication between
Bailey Island Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
and the men prior to them coming to the house. Then the new trees came...the majority looked pitiful. Even one of the workers told me he told the wholesaler that he didn't think the customer would be pleased with the trees. He was RIGHT! However I was reassured by
Bailey Island Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
that the trees were fine...and looked like they should...and I believed him. Unfortunately, I allowed the trees to be planted. NO mulch was put on the majority of the trees (only 2 of 12) and the root balls for many of the trees remain about 1 1/2 - 2 inches above the ground! The trees looked terrible ..a friend likened them to
Bailey Island Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
Brown Christmas trees. and many of them were crooked....even the neighbors commented. After complaining a lot (and feeling guilty about complaining) the workers returned to tie some of the trees so they would grow straight...
I faithfully watered the poor trees as instructed by
Bailey Island Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
. By the end of August 2 of them were dead, multiple trees are still crooked. Although
Bailey Island Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
has promised to look at them...and replace the two dead ones per the contract....they remain....and I wait.
What I hoped would be a beautiful backyard has turned into a frustrating and emotional debacle.
Go elsewhere!!!!

Burns, the owner, personally came to to make the landscape plans and give me the estimates. He was always prompt or called if changes had to be made.
Bailey Island Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
also closely supervised the job, showing up on site at least once a day and on some days actaully doing a lot of the labor himself.
Even though I had the property survey plat, all of the in-ground utilities were surveyed and marked prior to starting work.
All of the various work teams were well supervised and the employees and subcontractors were very polite. The intial patio excavation team actually started a day earlier than I expected but otherwise all of the teams arrived on time and worked late if necessary to finsh the day's project. They always had the appropriate equipment and did their best to recycle the soil and garden materials. The yard was
Bailey Island Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
cleaned up at the end of each day.
The company did very well dealing with unexpected isues such as finding a buried and cemented city sewer line manhole cover that did not show up on the survey. This forced moving and retrenching 15 feet of the new drainage line. The abandoned trench was filled and soded very quickly so you that you cannot tell the first attempt was made. The patio and walkway were both enlarged and replaced with rebar and stamped concrete. Work was slowed by heavy rains but the resutling natural looking stone finish is very pleasing and complements the exisiting natural stone edging about the gardens
..
Bailey Island Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
is very creative and does have very definite ideas on how the yard should look. That being said he did listen to my suggestions and counter ideas. The result is beautiful and I strongly recommend his company to anyone taking on a major landscaping job.

Happy with the service. Responsive to any questions or clarification. Also ordered mulch for front yard at cost of $250 last month. Would recommend it to others.

tells you in advance that they'll send out a 3-man crew, and that was fine with me I was not happy, however, to see that only one or two of the workers actually worked at the same time. I had to go out and explain that I didn't want to pay for 3 workers when 2 of them were standing around watching the other guy dig....More /> They eventually left without finishing the job and didn't follow up about coming back. It took us many hours to remove all the roots they left in the patch where we planned to plant a garden.
Bailey Island Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
's 3-man crews aren't cheap, but if they did the job right, I wouldn't mind paying the premium.
we've also used
Bailey Island Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
in the past for lawn and snow services. The crews don't seem very well-trained or careful, so we no longer do business with this company.

Before the removal occurred, a member of their team came and walked the property to give a detailed estimate. It was about 2-3 weeks before they could come and do the removal. On that day, the team arrived and got right to work. We spoke with the foreman to make sure he was aware of the trouble spots and they hit them all.
Approximately 2 weeks after the initial removal, we noticed more
Bailey Island Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
growing back in the area where the bush was removed. I called back and explained the issue. I did not get an immediate answer as to whether the additional removal needed was included in the scope of the original contract. However, after sending pictures, they promptly squeezed us into the schedule and came and removed the remaining vines. I have not seen any ivy pop up since and if it does I know who to call...
I would recommend if you have constant issues with regrowth to invest in the maintenance plan.

I was in town to take care of a rental property and realized my tenants had neglected the yard. Needing a quick solution before the new tenants arrived, I placed several calls to Angie's List-recommended companies. Because they were running a special (which I didn't need), the receptionist politely informed me they would be unable to get to my house that week; however, a few hours later, I received another call saying they thought they could fit in my small job and would like a
Bailey Island Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
to give me an estimate. Their pricing was highly competitive ($100 less than others) and they added some filler bedding plants that I wouldn't have originally asked for. Their team showed up bright and early on the specified day, worked through some rain but had to leave when the lightning started. They came back the next day to finish the job. I was grateful for their quick, thorough work and would happily hire the company again.

Very well. I had not been able to pinpoint if the problem was electrical, mechanical, or water flow. Scheduling was easy, he arrived on time and was methodical about the process of problem identification. After running a number of tests he found an appropriate solution that didn't require replacing the control unit, reprogrammed the control, and gave me helpful advice about the care and maintenance of the system. Very easy and pleasant to work with,

The men who came to work on the steps were very nice, punctual, and professional. They perfectly match the steps to our rock wall, and we couldn't be happier. The price was reasonable, the job was well done. We would definitely contract with them again for work.

I followed up 3 times over a three week period requesting a quote and to see if
Bailey Island Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
wanted to do the work. I left messages for them with the receptionist each time I called. I never received a phone call back or any sort of follow up. This was quite surprising to me as
Bailey Island Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
had received sterling reviews on
Bailey Island Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
's list. From what I could determine during the first visit they appeared incredibly knowledgable and professional but their lack of follow up has proven to be disappointing.
Update - after 3.5 weeks they ultimately called to discuss our project details but we had already hired another contractor.
