An arborist noticed a large tree in our front yard may need to be removed, and as that tree is the very centerpiece of our landscaping (we couldn't imagine not having a tree there), we looked into replacing it with a mature tree (25'-35'). It is *very* hard to find a company who not only has trees of this size available, but can also place them.
Temperance Nurseries Provider Name Locked
is one of those places. I contacted them, and
Temperance Nurseries Provider Name Locked
was kind enough to walk me through my options and
Temperance Nurseries Provider Name Locked
took a look at the property. We have some challenging aspects to our property (including power lines), but
Temperance Nurseries Provider Name Locked
had some ideas, and had some good tree suggestions (although I was really hoping for a Princeton Elm). We eventually decided to work to save our tree, based on another arborist's recommendations, but I certainly appreciate
Temperance Nurseries Provider Name Locked
's responsiveness, service and professionalism - and they had good prices, as well.

We contracted to have the ditch in front of our house that leads to a drain under our driveway re-graded and wanted it filled with large "cobble stones" rather than common creek rock (a mix of 1" and larger round rocks) or rip-rap (a course rock) but our contractor could only provide the common variety creek rock. Undeterred I called around and located
Temperance Nurseries Provider Name Locked
who allegedly stocked the larger Cobble Stones at a premium cost of ~50% more per yard plus trucking (they're 30 miles from our house) . So to make a long story short... 1) I called
Temperance Nurseries Provider Name Locked
several times and spoke with
Temperance Nurseries Provider Name Locked
(
Temperance Nurseries Provider Name Locked
)
Temperance Nurseries Provider Name Locked
- who we now know to be "a principal" along with her brother
Temperance Nurseries Provider Name Locked
- because I wanted to make absolutely certain they had the rock we wanted.
Temperance Nurseries Provider Name Locked
assured me their Cobble Stones/Decorative creek rocks were 4" and larger and that the only thing smaller would be pieces broken off while loading or unloading. 2) Our contractor agreed to let me provide the rock so once the work was scheduled I called
Temperance Nurseries Provider Name Locked
and scheduled three 6 ton loads of their 4+ inch Cobble Stone to be delivered at a cost of $1047.96 which I had to pre-pay by CC. (~$785 for the rock + 3 delivery charges) 3) Their first load/delivery of "Cobble Stones" prompted a call from our contractor.
Temperance Nurseries Provider Name Locked
had delivered common 1+" creek rock - the same material our contractor stocks! I called
Temperance Nurseries Provider Name Locked
and spoke with
Temperance Nurseries Provider Name Locked
- the person I coordinated the delivery with. He felt badly but said his associates hadn't properly explained that their Cobble Stone was, in fact, common creek rock. In response I told him
Temperance Nurseries Provider Name Locked
had assured me the Cobble Stones would be 4+ inches and that's what I wanted. He said he'd call the owner* to see what could be done. (*later ID'ed to be the father,
Temperance Nurseries Provider Name Locked
, of
Temperance Nurseries Provider Name Locked
Excavating). The bottom line is:
Temperance Nurseries Provider Name Locked
couldn't supply the Cobble Stones I pre-paid them to deliver so I cancelled the other 2 loads and
Temperance Nurseries Provider Name Locked
directed
Temperance Nurseries Provider Name Locked
to credit us 2/3 of the amount charged. It's been 48 hours since we had to cancel our order and NO credit has been issued NOR has the owner returned our calls (2 to his excavating company and 1 to
Temperance Nurseries Provider Name Locked
) . Net/Net - we were misled then charged a premium + trucking for common creek rock. This was NOT a good "buying experience". The good news is our contractor was able to supply the balance of the rock required (albeit common creek rock) which cost less per ton and there was no additional trucking charge!

Went very well.
Temperance Nurseries Provider Name Locked
was able to move dirt around such that we didn't have to buy more top soil when we fully expected to. He brought great ideas to the conversation to help us get the most for our money.

Temperance Nurseries Provider Name Locked
sent us numerous color brochures and fliers listing and depicting various landscape, perennial, and annual plants which looked attractive to add to our flower beds and accent our landscape. My husband and I telephoned them and inquired further. We live in a marshy area of zone 9 and told this to the experts at
Temperance Nurseries Provider Name Locked
. They informed us that all their plants were guaranteed and our satisfaction was guaranteed as well. So we placed a substantial order of these types of plants and waited for their arrival.
When the plants arrived, many looked worse for the trip, but already having been advised by
Temperance Nurseries Provider Name Locked
just to plant them and they would thrive, we purchased many bags of topsoil and nursery soil to accent our raised beds and planted these many plants alongside existing plants and those we obtained from local
Temperance Nurseries Provider Name Locked
and also other mail order plant companies. We noted after a week, the plants from
Temperance Nurseries Provider Name Locked
were not coming out. After a couple of weeks they were dead. Plants we obtained from other mail order
Temperance Nurseries Provider Name Locked
and local
Temperance Nurseries Provider Name Locked
were thriving in our new soil and beds. We telephoned
Temperance Nurseries Provider Name Locked
and were told to give them more time, since many plants were known to come forth from roots, after the tops died off.
We waited until the gaps in our beds were an eye sore. All other plants were thriving, many blooming and the areas where
Temperance Nurseries Provider Name Locked
plants were planted were
Temperance Nurseries Provider Name Locked
. We telephoned
Temperance Nurseries Provider Name Locked
again and were told they would refund/credit those plants which had died. After we provided the plant numbers and all that effort, we were to receive an updated invoice from
Temperance Nurseries Provider Name Locked
. They said a new invoice would be forthcoming.
On August 9, 2014, we telephoned
Temperance Nurseries Provider Name Locked
again. We spoke with
Temperance Nurseries Provider Name Locked
who told us he was located in India.
Temperance Nurseries Provider Name Locked
noted the numerous plants we received that had died and manually calculated the amount we owed was $19.94.
Temperance Nurseries Provider Name Locked
told my husband and I that
Temperance Nurseries Provider Name Locked
would be sending us a revised invoice in the amount of $19.94, which we agreed to pay. We waiting for that invoice to arrive. As weeks went by, this revised invoice did not arrive.
The next communication we received about the matter was from a debt collection agency engaged by
Temperance Nurseries Provider Name Locked
. They stated we owed $55.04. We knew we did not owe this but after not receiving any revised invoice from
Temperance Nurseries Provider Name Locked
and being assured we could have complete confidence in their plants and satisfaction guarantees, we found that just was not true. Under protest we paid their debt collection company the $55.04 and sent a letter to the CEO of
Temperance Nurseries Provider Name Locked
detailing our report here. We have not heard back from the CEO, nor from
Temperance Nurseries Provider Name Locked
as of the posting of this review on September 29, 2014

Exceptional. We have owned our
Temperance Nurseries Provider Name Locked
home for more than 30 years, and this was one of the best service experiences we have ever had. When we first visited the Cardinal garden center, we were amazed at its beauty and serenity.

Mellusi is a skilled landscape architect with a terrific eye. He prepared a professional landscape design for our property, and as soon as we saw it, we knew that we wanted to go with Cardinal. All the work is done by four men (
Temperance Nurseries Provider Name Locked
and his brother
Temperance Nurseries Provider Name Locked
and two employees) who have been working together for decades and know what needs to be done and how to do it so well that the work seems to flow effortlessly. We made a few changes in the plant selections, but most of the time we came around to
Temperance Nurseries Provider Name Locked
's view of how things should be done. He understands old houses and favors the kinds of materials and styles that would have been used when they were built: brick and bluestone and fieldstone; no concrete pavers. These guys are also a pleasure to have around. Because every aspect of the job from landscape design to driveway paving was done by the same people, there were no hassles, and everything turned out well. I recommend them enthusiastically.

Fabri Statuary was great. They have the largest selection of water features and fountains in the Bay Area. It is a multi-generational business so they know all aspects of water installations. They were punctional, informative and cost effective. I would definitely recommend anyone who wants a water feature to talk and work with them.

HIRTS & AMAZON DO NOT PUT THEIR COSTUMERS FIRST-



Neither Amazon or Hirts Nursery can figure out what their return/refund policy is on dead plants. I ordered and then received ten 4" Boston Ivy plants that where delivered over 2 wks. ago. Upon delivery I promptly opened the box and the potted 4" plants looked... weak. I planted and watered the plants the same day, there where no return instructions or planting instructions with the shipment. Four days later the plants where dead.

I called Amazon told them about my problem -Amazon said that they would contact Hirts and Hirts, would have 2 days to reply/respond to the problem (turns out Hirts did not). Almost 2 wks. later and 4 more phone calls (of which I was told 3 times there would be a replacement of product or refund) I discarded the shipping box and 10 planting pots.

AS OF TODAY Amazon changed their position- Amazon told me I HAD to now dig up the 10 dead plants and ship them back to Hirts- and see if I could get a refund from Hirts. When I checked Hirts web site (which is a Co. Amazon is representing ) Hirts has NO return policy posted under returns. See: hirts.com

After all the time and inconvenience this has cost me I would have been better off going to Home Depot
Temperance Nurseries Provider Name Locked
-Mart
Temperance Nurseries Provider Name Locked
etc. Where the employs can clearly speak to you, and tell you what the policy is. Where the costumer is treated with respect. Check Better Business Bauru Rating of : F. http://www.bbb.org/akron/business-reviews/florists-retail/hirts-greenhouse-and-flowers-in-
