"The owner was very nice and came to our home to appraise and schedule; he suggested doing it right then and there and reluctant to come back saying that it "really wasn't worth it". All they did was blow the leaves into our woods which ...more then blew back into our yard. Kind of thought they would remove...We only had a 1/4 acre...maybe a bigger client would suit them better.

is great -- I would use him again. It was just
and a helper, not a bunch of guys, and they worked hard. Everything looks great. The bushes they bought for me are good quality and rooted right away. The mulch ...more is thick and even. They made sure they knew exactly what I wanted and checked in with me throughout the job. "

Sample Landscapers Reviews
The workmen were punctual, professional, and talented in creating the tiers and stone wall. During the installation, they needed to place the trees strategically to balance the front appearance. When they finished they left everything cleaned and it was like they were naturally grown in the location. Made a big difference to the front of the home

In addition, their summer flowers and plants thrive beautifully. "
"They were able to restore the shape of my beds, eliminated all the weeds, and put down 20 bags of mulch. They also cleared my back fence. My yard looks great! We will definitely doing additional work with them!
over several other companies we got estimates from. From the beginning
(the owner) seemed knowledgeable and was very convincing about what needed to be done on the patio. However, DO NOT question
about his work! He is super defensive and apparently ...more his customers do not have the right to express concerns or dissatisfaction with his work. The structure of the finished patio is good, it is a huge improvement in terms of aesthetics, however I was unhappy with several things throughout the (very long) process of getting the patio finished.
First off, his workers are nice guys, very polite, but have a tendency to spit on the ground a lot while they are talking to you - very unprofessional. They also spent a lot of time standing around talking during the times that
was not at the job - literally 2-3 guys talking 1 or 2 working at any given time.
This job was started in late fall because
came down on the price if we were willing to wait until his other jobs were done for the season. We were happy to do that because even $6000 is a lot of money for us, and we were trying to save as much as we could. After they finished the majority of the work in December
said they would be back to finish up first thing in the spring. Well, unfortunately for us, we paid
the majority of the money we owed him in December, which left little incentive for them to come back to finish the job. I had to call several times to get them to come out and finally - IN
- they finished the job by installing sand between the bricks.
At first, I was not going to write a review for this company - I had the "don't say anything if you don't have something nice to say" feeling and I just didn't feel right about writing a review. But after having several previous issues with the work that was done (my husband and I didn't like the way the landscaping or grass was left after the work in the fall and there were a couple other, smaller things), but this last thing was the kicker...I was not home when
's worker came by to install the sand so I didn't see what type of product he used/the methods he used, etc. I looked at the patio when I got home and the sand had not hardened (our contract specified that polymeric sand be used and from what I read online I thought it should be hard by then), so I was worried that the kid he sent out to finish the job used regular sand. I called and left
a message asking if polymeric was used; then left another a couple days later because I hadn't heard back yet and rain was washing out the sand from the edges of the patio. It was probably clear that I was slightly irritated in my messages but I was polite and told him I needed a call back soon. He called back and left me a rude message saying that he "was offended that I would question whether they used polymeric sand". Then he said that in a week it would
and I would be calling him to apologize and he'd be waiting for my call. He was offended that I would question his professionalism and, in response, he left a very unprofessional message. In my opinion, any time you are paying someone for a job and are unhappy with the work in any way, the contractor should at least be polite - even if he does not think the questions are justified.
So, in the end we have a well-constructed, but not well finished patio and experienced WAY to much frustration throughout the process to justify using this company. And the sand is gone along the edges of our walkway and I don't know how we are going to fix it.
"It took two different days, in two months time. Summer is half over. I felt like I was on the clock and I was not high on their priority list. Brought out three people each time. One was always supervising mostly. I felt they still owed me an hour since they like to stop and socialize instead of being on the clock and included the one persons time ...more spreading the rest of my mulch when that shouldn't have been. I don't care if you want to take a little break but don't include it on my time. The second time they were out they didn't even bring a weed wacker to clean up under the tree and sides so I have big tall weeds to do myself. I also purchased the extra mulch package. Over all it looks very nice but not worth $30 an hr per person.
"My mother 88 yr old has arthritis and has a hard time doing the gardening work she has loved all her life. Now with the heavy landscaping done she can enjoy her gardening without having to do the heavy work. Specifically the gardeners show up and ask my mother what work she needs done that day, repot a plant, move a heavy pot, trim a tree, etc. ...more All that she asks for gets done for her. The men are respectful and kind to her. In particular the wide edging along her sidewalk was a lot of work; but they did as she asked. Thank you
Service for making my moms golden years more enjoyable. The weekly service is very reasonably priced. "
"We wanted a plan for our landscape to implement in a multi-stage process. The blueprint sized plans provided were very well done, with all the information needed to work with contractors to put in a new driveway, entry way and plant beds.
