Recent Review: Mike was able to quickly diagnose and repair a bad filter on my pool. He was prompt and friendly during the service call and his price was great. I'd recommend Mike to anyone in need of a repair or service.
Recent Review: Orlando called promptly on the initially scheduled day of my closing to let me know that because of the rain, his earlier job with concrete work was taking longer than expected and he wanted to postpone my closing to the next afternoon. The next day, Orlando and another gentlemen showed up as promised and immediately went to work on my pool. They drained and blew out the plumbing and equipment, filled with antifreeze, installed plugs, treated the pool water, and installed the winter cover. They worked furiously and were finished in 75 minutes. He charged time and materials, which ended up being significantly less expensive than the itemized quote I had from another company. This was my first year owning a pool and Orlando took the time to answer my questions, explain what they were doing, and point out things that could help me extend the life of my equipment. All without trying to sell me additional products or services. Even with my relative inexperience, I had learned a lot from the internet and knowledgeable personal aquaintances over the summer, and it was clear that Orlando knows his stuff. And he's personable and friendly to boot.
Recent Review: They are very good. I have used them. They are prompt and they come when they say they are going to come. If they have a conflict they will call and reschedule which I think is good customer service. They do good work. They do what they say they are going to do. They stand behind of what they do and they have a warranty. They put in plants and don’t replant or replenish them. We have been in this house for two years and the other house we had we sold it and it was on a hill with a pond and we had a problem with water coming down the gravel road and the pond over flowing. They did clover work and put in a weed damp on the road going up the house so that when we have heavy rains it doesn’t destroy the road and over flood the pond. They did that work last summer and we have been very pleased with that. We have used them a lot. When we usually need to have work done they come out pretty quick. We have been their customer for a while. They are prompt and do the work pretty quick.

Recent Review: He is maintaining my pond that he had installed for me. He landscaped, designed and installed it. For a year or two, he also supplied me with the beneficial bacteria and the fish to keep it going. As it got too much for me, he offered to do the maintenance and charges me for his service. Since it is his job, he does it well. He comes out every two weeks to clean up all the algae and takes care of my pond; every spring he cleans out, drains it and refills the pond, and every fall he preps it and gets it ready for winter.
Recent Review: Friendly interaction, they give me a discount as a long time repeat customer and carry the heavy boxes of chlorine jugs to the car for me. It seems to me their customers are often pool servicers rather than owners. The atmospere seems more "wholesale" than the fancier pool store closer to my home, which does not carry liquid chlorine and charges $15 for water testing.

The liner replacement was a bit of a debacle. Somehow a worker mis-measured and the first liner was the wrong size. It was reordered at no cost to us and was installed in mid June. Then the rains came and groundwater came up through the bottom before installation was complete, and there was some question who would pay to fix the wrinkles but we got it resolved satisfactorily.

Our relationship with Chris began years ago when he installed our first 2 streams, pond, and pondless waterfall system. We have been so pleased with his service and products that he was continually invited back to enlarge and enhance that first feature. We also use his maintenance services to keep the system in tip-top shape. He stands by his work for years and will not hesitate to replace parts if needed. His clients are always part of the Central IA Water Garden Tour every year because they are environmentally sound ways to beautify your home's landscape. We are even considering consulting with him on our next home's water feature in another state because his work is so exceptional!

After several years of constantly replacing blown pond lights Bernd evaluated our situation and made a couple of recommendations. Following his recommendation and with his assistance all of our lights were replaced. The pond now glows beautifully from dusk until about 3am. We couldn't be more pleased.

Did a good job and got it done. Was helpful about ideas for improvements in the future and how to solve additional pond problem.

Dave and his highly skilled team transformed our pool into a showplace. They go above and beyond without nickel and diming you...I'm surprised at the other rating as we've found them to be highly responsive.

In every instance in which I have dealt with Friend Landscaping and Bill Friend or his employees, they have been courtesy, professional and very prompt in responding to my needs. Bill recently came to my house the weekend before the 4th of July when my pond pumps stopped working. He knew my wife wanted the pond operating over the 4th of July weekend for our guests. Even though he had other work, he was able to come over within 24 hours of my call to assist. I am unable to make an evaluation of the price of Friend Landscaping services because I do not know of another company that is willing to come service my pond so I have no ability to make a price comparison. However, I feel the prices charged by Friend Landscaping are fair and I plan to continue using this company.

He does pool and spas. I use him for pool service. He knows what he is doing. He doesn't expect payment right away; he sends you a bill. I had a lot of different service guys out since. He saved my pool. He is wonderful.

Had been trying to get pool cleared and clean for a month working with central iowa pools. They were not helpful and we paid them to open the pool and get it running and they never even checked the filter sand. Couldn't get he water clean. Tim from tidy pool immediately checked the filter sand and everything got better from there.

Cleanup went fine. Spent an hour discussing flowers/colors at his place of business. His truck and crew came to my house to plant annuals and they were the wrong colors. I had an appointment in the morning and they called and said they would be delayed. They finished that job and had to go back to the nursery to pick up my order. Apparently they had a wrong mumber for me and they arrived that afternoon around 3. I knew there was too much to finish before 5.00. I didn't want the flowers as they were the wrong colors. Was told that they would call when they got back to the landscape office. Never heard from them again. Called about 4 days later and canceled the order. Pity, I figured it was going to be a 5K order. Wouldn't recommend them to anyone.
