ADANIEL DEVEREAUX--LANDSCAPE GARDENER
DAN IS A MASTER GARDENER AND SHARES HIS KNOWLEDGE GENEROUSLY. HE WORKS LIKE A HORSE, IS INCREDIBLY NICE, INTERESTING, HONEST, PROMPT, GRACIOUS, POLITE AND INTELLIGENT. WE FEEL WE RECEIVED TWICE WHAT WE PAID FOR AND LOOK FORWARD TO OUR NEXT JOB WITH HIM.

ADANIEL DEVEREAUX--LANDSCAPE GARDENER
The cost does not reflect all of the work he has done because I kept having him return to do additional work.  Dan is extraordinarily pleasant, extremely hard working, and knowledgeable.  He is a master gardener,and his "day job" is  working as a gardener at the Minneapolis VA.  I am certain that I will hire him in the future.

AHome Sown Gardens LLC
Tami and her crew have been taking care of our gardens for several years and we feel like they're part of the family. Even our pets are delighted to see them.  I am handicapped and can no longer do garden work myself, but Tami does everything I would do and more.  It's wonderful to see my gardens evolve and become more beautiful every years.  Tami makes sure that everything is cleaned up before they leave and we don't even have to worry about disposal of  the weeds, trimmed branches, etc.,  I can't say enough about Home Sown Gardens.  I call Tami  my 'garden angel' because she appeared in my gardens when I needed her most.  She is indeed a master gardener and a wonderful friend.

AMJ'S DESIGNS & PLANTINGS
M.J. is a Washington County Master Gardener and she is very knowledgeable about plants. She also has an artist's eye for design. She charges $25.00 an hour, which seems very reasonable for the amount of work that she accomplishes in an hour. If you ask her to bring plants, she always picks plants in good condition. She has done routine maintenance for me each summer, usually coming about five or six times a summer. After she has deadheaded and weeded, the garden always looks 100% better than when I have done it. She works very efficiently and accomplishes a lot in one hour. She is always very personable and I have really enjoyed working with her.

ATANGLETOWN GARDENS LLC
People who walk past our property tell me that I have had a great job with the landscaping. I belong to their CSA programme. Overall the job was excellent and I had no problems at all. I am studying to be a master gardener; so it's not like I have no knowledge on this. They are very prompt and they come when they say they will. They cover the guarantee that they say they have. They are professional and punctual. Their price is comparable with other companies in price. I love the landscaper I worked with and her name is Roxanne. She is excellent. I will use them again if I had $25000 right now.

DDean Bjorkstrand Inc
We originally hired him to re-work our large garden that had become overgrown due to neglect as my husband and I both had debilitating illnesses in the last 2 years. He advertised as a Master Gardener. We contracted his company to come each week and take care of things with a big "blitz" in the beginning of the season to plant, move plants, etc.. As an afterthought,we asked him to re-do our front step to be more attractive with slate and to raise our existing stone walkway to make the step-up easier for handicap accessiblity They did the step nicely but in the process of re-doing the walkway, they dug up plants and left them with roots exposed for several weeks and never did plant most of them. The ones they planted were incorrectly planted too high with roots exposed, or too deep causing rot. His crew planted a few annuals without even separating 4-packs...clearly no experience. The plants that he moved died as he decided to move them in the heat of the day and he didn't trim them back to lessen the shock. As soon as the hard-scaping was done, he promplty dropped us. We originally contracted him for the gardening help in February to ensure that we had the help when we needed it. He just took the higher priced job and promptly dropped us and didn't do the gardening. He couldn't even call, he informed us by e-mail. He then had the nerve to ask, again by e-mail, if he could take pictures of his stone step project. I believe his crew plants only new plants as part of a hardscaping project but there are no gardening skills that one could rely upon. I had even paid him in advance for the whole summer in good faith and as another motivator, I thought. Funny thing, he didn't return our money for several weeks after he dropped us. I think he intended to follow through but bigger paying jobs probably lured him away. Not really good business practice to "go back on your word".

Debbie and her crew were very professional, friendly and easy to work with. The team completely removed the overgrown raised garden. Speaking with me often, she designed a lovely new garden. All messages to her were responded to promptly. Also the cleanup was thorough. I’m planning on hiring Twin City Landscape for my next garden revamp!

ALIVING SPACE LANDSCAPES
Scott is one of the most hardworking, friendly, honest and accommodating people I have the pleasure of knowing. He returns phone calls quickly; he shows up for jobs promptly and stays until they are finished. He never hesitates to change something if it is not to your liking (for eg., the height of a hedge). He is always polite and has a smile. He passes this work ethic on to his crew as well. Although not many people know this, Scott is a Master Landscaper and has a Master's Degree in Horticulture. He knows everything about plant materials, trees, pruning, and is an expert in the art of Japanese Bonzai trees/shrubs. Before moving to Minnesota he was a master gardener for one of the world's finest Japanese Gardens located in Portland Oregon. Scott does not work any harder for me because I am a regular customer. He has been this way since day one. This is just his nature. He really is a treasure and anyone would be lucky to have him for any landscaping job.

Molly arrived at the scheduled time and finished in about two hours. She removed weeds and grass from around shrubs and three flower gardens. She expanded one garden by removing some sod and covered that garden with mulch.

Recent Review: I can't recommend this company highly enough! I had some unruly shrubs and crowded perennials; it all looked rather messy. They trimmed the shrubs and dug up parts of the shrubs as we had discussed; they also divided some perennials. The plants look absolutely lovely now. Communication and scheduling were excellent, the price was very reasonable, and James even suggested some minor tweaks I hadn't thought of. Thank you so much, Mother Earth Gardens!!!! You guys are awesome, and I am a very happy customer.

Recent Review: All aspects of the project went extremely smoothly. I was a bit nervous going into the early stages of the project because landscape teams that we've used in the past haven't been the greatest at communication and follow ups. This was not the case with Shades of Green. We worked with Suzzette and she was prompt, organized, and extremely professional. Once we decided on a design and price, the project was scheduled and excuted without issue. The new garden is a huge improvement over the previous space. I definitely recommend working with them and would contact them again for future projects.

Recent Review: I called Tom who responded within hours of my call and we met 2 days later to discuss project both inside and outside privacy fence along east side of my home. Included on inside of privacy fence (approx 22’x12’) was a beautiful 8x12 ft patio, also dug out north and south borders for garden with new black dirt added, and new sod in all other areas. On outside of fence, had several pine trees removed year before, and old rock still there used for makeshift parking spot, was an eyesore. Tom’s hard working crew removed rock and dug out soil where trees were, and replaced whole area with new sod. Also included was a small dry creek bed of river rock for drainage. It’s been three weeks now since 3 day project completed, and I’m still delighted over the outcome of this project.

Recent Review: Tyler Grissman of Phillips Garden worked closely with us on the design and did a great job of listening to our needs and incorporating our ideas into the final design. The construction crew was great! They kept us informed as to the work schedule. They kept the work site clean throughout the project. They did a perfect cleanup at the end of the project. The new patio is beautiful and highly functional. We continue our relationship with Phillips Garden as we have contracted with them to do ongoing garden maintenance. The entire team was very professional, informative, answered all our questions, and were fun to work with. At the close of the project they provided us with a list of all the plantings. The drainage system works perfectly and solved all the problems we had been having. We are very, very happy with our new yard. Phillips Garden did a fantastic job on our project!

Recent Review: In the fall of 2011, I installed a pond in my backyard as a do-it-yourself project. It has a river, waterfalls, 300 gallon pond, and a wetland area for the birds to bathe. It turned out ok, but there were a few things I didn't do very well by myself and I needed a professional with which to brain-storm improvement ideas. In the spring of 2012, I called Nick, at Pond King Water Gardens, to get his advice. Upon viewing my pond he was very gracious in his comments and offered suggestions to address my concerns; one of which was that it looked too and quot;boulder-yand quot;, and another was that I didn't think I made it deep enough. He also offered suggestions about things I didn't even consider, for example, adding an automatic top-off valve in the skimmer to replace evaporation, putting in a backflow preventer in case of a power outage, and adding a second pump for the bird bath area. He listened as I painted a picture in his mind of the features I wanted for the pond. My vision was to create a Northern Minnesota retreat. I wanted it rustic and wild as opposed to formal and manicured. He gave me wonderful ideas and a quote for the re-do. Since I had many items that needed and quot;fixingand quot; he gave me the prices a-la-cart so I could fit it in my budget; do a little now, and a little later. I decided on implementing ALL of his ideas! He wrote up a quote and provided a time frame for completing the work. It took two laborers working eight hours to finish it in a day. We provided the electrical needs. In the spring of 2013 I called Nick to thank him for making my pond beautiful and to hire him again, this time to make the pond portion bigger. This required a complete tear-out of the first pond. To shave a little money off the price I removed all the boulders and the liner; basically tore it apart myself. He had a and quot;clean slateand quot;. We kept the original design, but with the pond now being 2300 gallons! The water feature consists of four waterfalls, a streambed, a wetland area, large pond, water plants, fish, and lighting to enjoy it in the evenings. Since this is an outdoor project he and his crew were at the mercy of Mother Nature. The months of April and May were cold, snowy, and into June, rainy. Even though his estimate for completing the project was one week, the weather stretched it into three weeks. The whole time he kept in touch with me regarding days they could work. On the rainy days he kept the project site covered in tarps so as not to create too much mud. It was exciting to watch our vision materialize. His motto is: and quot;Works of Art, One Yard at a Timeand quot;. He is an artist and he brings the customers' vision to life. He is very knowledgeable about all things and quot;pondand quot;; from the biological balance to the placing of the boulders, to plant life and fish, his ponds are as close to being natural as if it were placed there by nature itself. I highly recommend Nick and Justin to create your water feature. You will not be disappointed.

Recent Review: Developed a nice plan for dealing with potential water issues on our lot and designing beds and plantings and lighting.  I like to garden, so chose to have them prep perennial beds that I would later plant and they planted bushes and trees.  The crew was very professional and really prepped the ground - raking out rocks etc, prior to sodding, which not all crews do.  We had some plantings die (probably because of the very high temps when our project happened) and they replaced them this fall already.  Their price was a bit high, but we liked that they did everything.  They did revise the plan to address cost concerns.
