Two years ago we hired Aspen to shape and seed a wooded area behind our house. Using a bobcat and a slit-seeder, the job was accomplished very quickly and at a reasonable price. Now, two years later, the results are brilliant. So when we needed old rock-based landscaped removed in preparation for seeding, we immediately thought of Aspen. Just as before, Gary's response was immediate and his price reasonable. The project started very quickly and the hard-working crew was a wonder to watch. They were careful and paid attention to detail - for example they worked very carefully around the roots of existing trees, left straw cylinders near the sidewalk to catch any washed-off dirt, and laid planks on the lawn when crossing it with a bobcat. We were working with our favorite landscape architect, who is from a different company. He had proposed to cover our remaining rock landscaping with mulch, since it was a very large area and the rock would be expensive to remove. But once the bushes were cut down, this landscape architect had second thoughts and recommended removing the old rock and the roots of the old bushes. And while we thought the landscape architect's estimate included removing a rotting in-the-ground deck, and roots near the house, apparently it did not. Moreover, his company was reluctant to do this hard work. So we asked Gary to propose removing an extensive area of old landscape rock, roots and old decking and prepare the area for replanting and mulch, even though Aspen was not our primary contractor for this job. As usual, Aspen's response was immediate, the price was reasonable, the work started immediately, and the results were excellent. When comparing the proposal process of the two companies, I noticed that the company where our favorite landscape architect works uses software that did not include all necessary costs, for example, preparing the site. When Gary estimated, not only did he look at our site, he had his crew leader check it out also. The Aspen's proposals were for a complete job with no hidden additional costs - something we really appreciated! I would absolutely recommend Aspen Landscaping to anyone - we will certainly call Gary for our next project.
