Very bad design and very poor installation. I was very explicit with the designer, I said that I'd like a tropical look, succulents were fine, I'd also like some colour and fragrance. I wanted plants that didn't sprawl, that were very tailored and trim so that I wouldn't spend every evening and weekend weeding and trimming. The designer indicated that she fully understood what I wanted and knew the perfect plants that would meet my wishes. The design I got was just a bunch of circles on paper but the designer insisted that the plants fit well together and would be easy maintenance. after the garden was installed, the last part was to have gravel put in. The installer said that they could do that. I asked for a tan or gold gravel, but the installer brought a plastic bottle of gray gravel over and said that "this is the selection". I said that I specifically asked for a coloured stone and that I'd like to see some samples of that. No response. I have small trees 12 inches away from my house, the designer installed two mid sized trees that look horrible, just a very twisted and scraggly plant that really doesn't trim up well. I have a large riser of stucco in my house but instead of putting the mid sized tree in the middle of the stucco, it covers a section of window and I have a

wall of stucco in the front of my house. The two mid sized trees have a fuzz on them and heaven help you if you trim them without skin or breathing protection. These trees shed this fuzz and it will irritate the heck out of you if you breathe it in or it gets on your skin. In addition, I have plants that are growing on top of plants. I called

numerous times to come out and work with me to correct the bad design but every time the designer was supposed to show up, I was blown off. I looked at the garden and noticed that in a large area some plants (my succulents) were flooded in mud and another section was bone dry. I dug up the water line and it looked like someone had split it with a shovel. It appears to me that the designer worked on commission and that for some of the plants that were put into my yard,

management said "these are horrible plants don't sell, so find some sucker that you can sell these to (and they were probably told that they'd get a double commission for selling these trees, but I can't be sure about that) If you are considering signing up for

Nice initial response on the phone, and

I moved into a house with a fountain that is such a pain. For the first couple months, the fountain kept tripping the electrical breaker. Also, the light on the fountain kept going on...then off...then on...then off permanently. And the irrigation filler that is supposed to fill the fountain when the sprinklers turn on didn't work. Not to mention the whole thing could use a good cleaning. I had to manually fill the fountain twice a week, flip the breaker every other day, and skim algae out once a week that grew when the fountain didn't work. Grr. Called
Ballwin Nurseries Provider Name Locked
to rectify the situation. The Doc replaced my pump, which was the cause of the breaker tripping. And he cleaned the fountain very nicely with a power washer--it is truly beautiful! He was fast, courteous and professional. And when I had an issue with too much water spraying out of the fountain, the company quickly sent a guy back to the house to install an adjustable switch on the pump so I could control the flow. However, the Doc didn't know what the problem was with the light, and was stumped by the irrigation valve. Months later, I'm also a bit disappointed by the pump they installed...it doesn't automatically shut off if the fountain runs dry. It just grinds the motor indefinitely until I run out with my hose to fill it up again. Which wouldn't have been an issue if they could have fixed my auto filler. Guess I'll have to call an electrician to look at the lighting issue, and an irrigation specialist to deal with the filling issue. If all you need is a cleaning and a new pump, they're a fine company, and reasonably priced. But if your fountain has any other issues, they might come up short.

They cleaned the AC unit, and put up a new filter for me, and basically reset the brains of the AC unit and got it running again. These guys are the real deal, they normally work on commercial AC and resturaunts and things like that, so handling my little AC unit was no big deal for them. Great guys, super nice.

,I had hoped to have 6 piles dumped, but 4 piles is OK too: It is hard to precisely place loose rock from an ordinary dump truck.
The

I had no problems with

The delivery man is one of the owners. But I believe that any of their truck drivers could be persuaded to give some extra service, like dumping the product in more piles. I offered him $20, but he kindly declined.

They were very friendly and had extensive knowledge about their plants and trees. We were looking for trees or shrubs that would act as a screen on our property line. The problem was that that area is a wet location . They showed us the perfect shrub and it worked out fine!

We are do it yourselfers so my husband installed the pump and leveled the Fountain - we called Lomelis back when we couldn't get it just right - they came out for free and finished the details - they have "tricks of the trade" that we just didn't know since this was our first fountain - it turned out great! The were very nice, and very professional. We have since bought several other pieces of concrete art from them. Good prices - Box stores are cheaper but the quality of Lomelis is far superior. I recommend that you just have them install your fountains - it will save time and look great.

was wonderful. We walked around their nursery, which was quite large and had a lot of selection. We then proceeded to chose plants that we liked, and all of our questions were answered by the knowledgeable employees. They had beautiful trees--we selected three large ones. The price was affordable for the amount of things that we purchased. We were also able to arrange delivery the following day (we went on sunday and delivery was scheduled for monday). It was a very pleasant experience, and i will probably be going back there soon!

We planed the job together he recommended a specific paver company for the pavers, set the date and his crew - they have been with him for 15 years- did the work. Clean up was excellent. I do hope he posts the walkway on line. The walk looks and is excellent.

had sod all broken in pieces. Some of the sod was good, but some was not in good condition - lot of dirt on it not growing well after 4 weeks also. ....
They picked phone and said he can't just come to deliver for the damage caused. The damage was few hundred dollars as buying from retail would cost more and paying all over again to instal.
