Recent Review: We are so pleased with our experience with Green Team.  Chris and his team were efficient and got the job done swiftly.  Green Team's quote was less than half of some of the other quotes I received.  Their work was A+ and they were very accommodating to our requests.  I will use them again for future projects as well as tell all my friends and neighbors about them.

Bainbridge Outdoor Design Building Inc
Recent Review: The crew did an outstanding job. They had to excavate around irrigation pipes and outdoor lighting wires. They dug about 4" deep and removed all sod and soil. They laid landscape cloth and then stones with a perimeter of stone dust. The entire area was regraded for perfect drainage. The stones and dust were tamped down to provide a secure surface. The crew cleaned up  perfectly and left everything in order. They were very careful to avoid damaging any existing landscaping or hardscape surfaces.

CAMPBELL & FERRARA NURSERIES INC
Recent Review: I dealt with Jim Cambell initially who assigned me to Josh Franklin. Josh was terrific. Patiently answered all our questions about the artificial turf installation and brought us to see an installation in Georgetown. Just prior to the installation date, Josh left the company but promised that Jim Campbell would oversee the job. Prior to his leaving, Josh brought the foreman to our property to review the scope of the project. On installation day, the crew arrived on time, worked very carefully (challenge of underground wiring and irrigation) and cleaned up perfectly. We couldn't be more pleased with the job - planning, execution, customer service. Recently, we needed to contact Jim with a question about adjusting a corner of the turf to accommodate new stone work. We called Jim who was incredibly helpful on the phone and gave us all the information we needed for successful adjustment.

SD Home Turf Synthetic Grass Lawns
Recent Review: Home Turf did a 500 sq ft section of artificial turf in my back yard which wraps around half of my pool. Cale was the guy that came out and gave me the estimate, showed me the samples, and saw the whole job through to completion. The area to be turfed had a couple of very old irrigation valves that stuck above grade about a foot or so. I bought the house (built in '42) recently and one of the unknowns for me was what the landscape irrigation was all about in the back yard. I wasn't sure where the source lines were, where the irrigation lines ran, anything. I wanted to get rid of the valves and whatever else I had to in order to get the grade down the 3"-4" additional that they need to in order to fill with the gravel. I figured this was the only complication to installing the turf. One of the key factors in me going with Home Turf was that due to Cale's presentation the day of the estimate, I got a much better vibe from him overall, but in particular, regarding how he'd deal with the minor hiccups that can come from any significantly sized job done at your house.  As it turned out, for such a small area there were a few other surprises. In the corner just under the surface there was a big knarly tree trunk/root ball. It was bigger than a basketball and the guys had to hack at it for a long time just to get it out. Also, I had a huge mystery hunk of concrete just under the surface (likely from recent concrete contractors I had out getting rid of their "extra" concrete). The guys had to jack hammer the thing down into manageable pieces just to carry, and I'd imagine, to dispose of. My point being, the crew took these labor-intensive, time-consuming surprises in stride and just kept on going. The other thing that seemed to differ with this company was that the guy that came out to give the estimate wasn't just the sales guy, but I was made confident that he was going to be the point of contact the whole way through.  Fortunately, that turned out to be the case as Cale made sure that I was pleased with the results.  To wrap it up, the project turned out great. The turfed area is graded just the way I had asked, and the grass looks awesome.

Bio Rich Green Care
Award 2018Super Service Award
Recent Review: The crew showed up right on time and went to work. We discussed what I wanted done and the crew started at one end of the front yard and worked their way to the other end, trimming shrubs, removing vines trying to strangle my bushes and cover up the house, and collecting deadwood from storm damage to trees. As they completed a section, they asked me to step out of the house and approve the work done up to that point: Had they removed everything I wanted gone? Where the shrubs trimmed adequately, both shaped and thinned to encourage better growth? Was there anything they had overlooked? I had informed the company that I would take advantage of the offer to add extra hours at the same hourly rate. The crew was precise in telling me when the extra hours would begin, ensuring that I approved the extra charges. They removed all of the vegetation and made two trips to the county transfer station for disposal. This saved the time that would have been spent cramming all that green stuff (and dead brown stuff) into paper yard waste bags.

Recent Review: Marta Carlson was our designer and project manager and did a fabulous job. We added artificial turf to the side of our house (for a kids' play area) and added a patio area to the back of the house, connecting them both with a stone walkway.  We also enclosed the entire area with fencing, added an additional small flagstone seating area, and a few boulders to add interest to the design. This has made our outside area very useable and kid friendly -- exactly what we needed. Everything was done very professionally and, very importantly, there was close attention to detail by both Marta and her team. Marta provided us with excellent design ideas and revised them as needed to make sure we stayed close to budget. We did go above budget, but it was by choice because we felt that the suggested changes were worthwhile. Marta and her team were very responsive to any questions and concerns that we had during the process. We will definitely be using them again, as we already have them scheduled to add some plantings to the back yard in a few weeks.

VPC Landscape Construction
Recent Review: We interviewed several landscape firms before deciding to use VPC Landscape Construction and we did not regret our decision.  In fact, we were so happy with the job Julia Brizendine and her crew did for us we have recommended them to friends without hesitation. Although our patio home back yard was small, the job required was enormous and a challenge for the crew.  An artificial turf putting green, over 300 large rocks, and a buried pond all had to be removed before work could begin.  Julia’s crew was not deterred.  They managed to clear the yard in a few days, install a wonderful new patio, and replant several beds with hard work and skill, and transformed our back yard into a wonderful space. No project runs without its share of surprises, and ours was no exception.  However, this is when we were so pleased to have hired this company.  Never was there any question that we would have to compromise our design or problems were too big to resolve.  Julia was there daily overseeing everything and directing her crew. When VPC states that “customer service is priority number one” they really mean it.  Julia’s commitment to a project and her skill as an innovative landscape designer guarantee happy customers, and we certainly are very, very happy customers.

The experience was excellent. Ray, the owner, sent me some samples and then met with me to discuss the different types of grass. He was precise and educated me with the product. He was very knowledgeable with the product. What was most impressive, he explained the whole process of installing the turf and the maintenance. After speaking with other providers, it was pretty evident that Eastern Lawn and Landscape was the provider to go with. From installation to the finished project, they were very professional. They touched base with me to provide status on project, which was completed within the time frame I wanted. Overall, they were excellent.

ASD Home Turf Synthetic Grass Lawns
My tenant told me she was more impressed with Hometurf of all the people who gave estimates. She liked them because they presented her with a product, presented her with the benefits and it didn't feel like a high pressure sale. He told her what he thought would go well where, but she didn't feel like it was high pressure. She liked him, she thought he was very friendly, polite and professional. I think the product is great for a rental property because you don't have to maintain it, but it does get hotter than regular grass in the sun. It looks good, but up close you can tell it's not real. It's a great solution, but it's certainly not grass. They were up to par with the other estimates and actually came in less than the estimate after the job was done. I think it is a good product, but I haven't compared it to other products. They were great after the estimate, but I had to track them down several times to get the initial estimate.

As a consequence of adopting 2 rescue dogs who were turning our back yard into a mud pit, we contacted Eastern Lawn and Landscaping about installing artificial turf. Ray Fisher provided an excellent overview of the pros and cons of artificial turf, as well as samples of the different options available. I had a concern about the surface temperatures during times when the sun was directly on the turf, since I had heard that they could reach over 100. Ray explained that the surface temperature is a function of the ballast material that is used to "weigh down" the turf. He explained that large, rough-use applications like school ball fields often use a black rubber ballast, which causes surfaces temps to get very high. Eastern uses a white sand ballast for residential applications, which keeps the surface temps down. Now, when the summer sun is shining directly on the turf, it does get too hot to walk on in your bare feet. But the turf can be cooled quickly by hosing it down. And as soon as the sun moves on, the temp drops fairly quickly. But my dogs don't seem to be bothered by the surface temperature, even in the sun. They love running and rolling around on it. I think it may even be beneficial for my middle-aged dog who loves to chase balls, because it has just a little bit of a cushiony characteristic that may be easier on his joints than pounding the hard ground. We arranged for the installation, and everything went exactly as planned. The 2-man crew arrived on time, explained what they would be doing, and got straight to work. The installation is very labor-intensive, but these guys are obvious pros! The job went flawlessly. 2-year update: We've added a 3rd rescue dog to the household, and the turf is still holding up beautifully. I've had people ask to see our artificial turf, and they're totally amazed when I tell them they're standing on it. This is the best thing in the world for people with dogs....or with areas too shady to grow grass. It's not an inexpensive solution, but it's worth every penny. And Eastern Land and Landscape is the group to call.
