Tree trimming went ok, performed quickly and cleaned up well. Lawn care was provided 3 weeks and was done in an average to below average manner, with the final week provided service to cut only the front lawn. The provider was also hired to redo our back deck, we signed a contract and we put 1/2 money down. It took
about 3 weeks to come out and begin work, and all that was done in that time was to tear down the back stairs. 2-3 more weeks go by, and nothing. We understood that he would be working mostly on weekends, but it got to be ridiculous. He then proceeded to become upset when we hired a company to redo our house and garage roof (for which he neither was licensed to perform work, nor provided a quote to us), and threw a fit. He yelled at my husband, saying that we would have issues with our roof, and that he was supposed to perform the work. A day later, he brought back some of the money that we put down (not all of it - took out some for lawn care, which wasn't agreed upon by both parties), and basically threw it at my husband, saying "we're done". The invoice was also returned that said they could no longer provide services, due to "family issues".
He left us with a back porch boarded up with no stairs. We went with a reputable, reliable company for our deck and are very happy. Also, luckily, lawn mowing services are a dime a dozen, so he was very easily replaced by someone more professional and reliable.
Buyer beware - this provider is rude, volatile, unprofessional, and unreliable. Buy services at your own risk.

We had used
last year for weekly mowing and they did a good job, so we signed up again this year. After a couple of weeks, we noticed large divits in our back yard (easily a foot wide and 4"+ deep) that were caused by their guys spinning the mowers too fast on a wet lawn. I called on a Tuesday (our cut day was usually Thursday but would often shift to Friday or Saturday with rain) and left a message with the woman that answered the phones. I explained to her that we were listing our house for sale within a month and that this type of damage to our yard was unacceptable. She said that the lawn service manager would be out to our house to look at the damage and provide a solution either later that day or the next and she would note that the lawn guys needed to slow down for future cuts to prevent more damage. On Thursday the lawn crew showed up and proceeded to go fast again, leaving even more patches of dirt and ripped up grass in our yard. This was after I watched another company mow our neighbors yard slowly, making sure not to spin the mowers or dig up dirt and mud. I called TLC again and once again spoke to the woman that answered the main line. I explained again that no one had come out to talk to me and the lawn crew was still tearing up our yard. I told her that I would give them until the following Tuesday (a week since the first call) to send someone out or I was canceling our service. I also reminded her that I had signed up to have our gutters cleaned almost three weeks ago and that had still not been done. I never heard from them and left a message Tuesday evening that I wanted to cancel my service. I received a call Wednesday morning from what I believe was the owner trying to pacify me into keeping them and promising someone to be out to survey the damage but at that point I already had another company ready to go and wasn't willing to give them any more time. I think I was more than reasonable in trying to give them chances to get it right, but the fact that they didn't care enough to send someone out for damaged property after a week and three phone calls was the limit of my patience.

I've been using
Royal Oak Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
for many years with my past two homes in Royal Oak area and will for many years to come.
Rare as it is, this is truly one of those old-school, mom/pop, customer-oriented business where special requests and extra attention to detail in their lawn care have been fulfilled without question. You have a direct line to the owner and he will handle any concerns personally and expeditiously.
I have used others in the past and I have not found a better service OR a better price in the area.

I have been using the service for over a year, and I have been very satisfied and recommended
Royal Oak Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
to my friends. They do a great job of communicating with customers (e-mailing regarding timing for snow removals and heads up for when they are running behind schedule or just letting me know their expected service timing). Also, they have a very convenient bill payment - I have my credit card set up and just get automatically charged a few days after the service.

has been responsive anytime I have called with questions about additional services as well. I look forward to continuing to use their service and potentially adding on more yard services in the future.

I can't tell you how many lawn service companies I called and no one would take a 'one time' job, plus it was memorial day weekend and rain for the last two days. However,

called me the next day and kept in contact until the rain passed.

did an excellent job and gave me a great price, which was fair and reasonable especially since my grass was getting up to six+ inches. I will definitely keep his number (

and have it delivered (next year).

the owner manu is very professional and responsive. last year, his price quote for our lawn cuts was very fair and the service was reliable and timely throughout the season.
We are currently talking with him about a separate landscaping project ( an additional, modestly priced parking spot near our garage) and feel confident that any project we might do with him will be handled well and with integrity. He gave us several options and encouraged us to get bids on alternative methods that he does not offer in case we might prefer them. We chose this company last year due to angiest list recommendations and are very satisfied.

Fantastic job from start to finish! I was contacted same day I made inquiry and
Royal Oak Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
came out to give me estimate. I contracted for snow removal for all sidewalks (corner lot) and driveway. Crew showed up and did a great job each and every time. I am so happy with the service that I just signed up for lawn care for the upcoming season.

Owner of the company showed up over 30 minutes late for appointment time, after I left work early to make the appointment time, her only comment was "Wow, it takes longer than I remembered to get here", no apology for wasting my time. After a quick conversation about what we were looking for she said she would send an estimate by email. Hadn't heard from her within a week, followed up and she said that she would email the estimate and that they were short on office staff, a week after that I still hadn't heard from her, I called again and asked if she intended to bid the job, she said that she did, and that she would get something put together for me that day, never heard from her again. Not going to beg someone to take a job. Not worth the time and effort it took to contact her.

responded very quickly! He came out to my house and gave me an estimate for the work I needed done. I decided to go with him for a clean up followed by regular weekly cuttings. The work his guys did was beautiful (mowing, weed-eating, edging, overgrowth clean up). He went slightly over his estimate for the clean up but checked with me to make sure that was okay. With the weekly cuttings he has an online system that will let me communicate with him and pay my bill online (really convenient). The regular cutting was only $29 a week and included edging. My only complaint is that once they came and mowed when my lawn really didn't need it - you could not tell a difference and another time they did the front yard and not the back with no apparent reason for the change. I'm confident if I had contacted
Royal Oak Lawn Services Provider Name Locked
about it - he would have taken care of me, but I didn't. Overall I would recommend them and use them again (I cancelled service because I moved across the state).

I had to call them about creeping weeds in back yard. They came out and checked area and applied additional treatment at additional cost.
