DFOLIAGE FANTASIES
Although I explained what I wanted, Laury Lewis totaled ignored me. He planted what he wanted to plant in the very expensive boxes he talked us into. He dropped off 25+ bags of potting soil and left them in a pile on my deck for weeks. I had to clean up after him every time he came to do some work. The window boxes were expensive because they supposedly have unique drainage systems. I had to replace all of the soil in all of the boxes this spring because it wouldn't dry out because the boxes don't drain out excess water. I have called the master gardener three times this spring to have him check the boxes, but he has yet to return my calls. He truly does not know what he is doing and is inconsiderate at best. His prices were outrageous particularly given the service you don't get from him.

CGarden Keepers
They never gave me a written proposal, which in retrospect was a mistake for both of us. There was no negotiation up front. I accepted the price she gave me, even though it was higher than another bid I had gotten. But she seemed to know about plants, and I was looking to establish a relationship with a company that did more than just "blow and go". It turned out that I thought things were included that weren't. I thought trimming the boxwoods was included. It wasn't. Everything I asked about was an additional charge. I understand that she should charge for add ons, but everything felt like nickel and dimming. I asked if they would take a big pot to the alley, a 15 second walk. Paula said she would have to charge me for that. I was looking for a company who would go the extra mile (in this case 1/8 of a block). At the end, we did a walk through and there were a variety of things that she said they would do that they didn't. After I pointed them out, they addressed each one, but there was tension and it was getting uncomfortable. At a certain point I just wanted them to leave. The lawn still has dandelions and other weeds. They charged $250 for that and I didn't feel that I should have to point out every dandelion and other weeds that they missed. I didn't feel that they were professional, and I would not recommend them.

Joni does a great job with picking plants that are low maintenance and that come back year after year. I have referred her to many friends and she has made their landscaping a show stopper. She takes pride in her work and during this pandemic we should all be helping small businesses.

VirgilI and his team did an outstanding job at my home. Garden beds were grossly over grown with weeds and ground cover. (New Home) my yard looks better now than the photos the realtors had from last spring. Pea Gravel installed along side of house, bushes and King Hydrangea trimmed back, reserved some areas we had mulch pulled from. Everything looks great. Will definitely recommend and look to use for future projects.

ATaylor Made Landscape
Maureen and I began emailing in February, but the weather delayed our first meeting, as there needed to be no snow on the ground for her to see my garden space.  Once she arrived, she listened to what I liked, what I currently had in my garden and we brainstormed ideas.  We walked to two gardens in the area that I liked and talked about them in relation to mine.  Maureen asked great questions and took photos, telling me she would send me a garden plan within two weeks.  True to her word, I received an amazing garden plan!

AIn & Out Design
My husband and and I love a beautiful garden but we are not gardening enthusiasts. When it came time this year to redo the garden beds in the front of our home, we contacted Mary DiCarlo of In&Out Designs. We could not be more please with Mary and the quality of her services. She came to our home, listened to our needs, and developed a plan that satisfied our desire for beauty without high maintenance requirements. The time from first visit to garden installation was timely. Mary is very personable and knowledgeable and helped to make a project that was originally quite intimidating for us very enjoyable. We are looking forward to enjoying her design and our garden for years to come.

Recent Review: The process went smoothly from start to finish. The staff was always available to answer our questions professionally and we finally got our "dream garden." The fact that the company is located in the neighborhood made everything easier. We wish we had contacted Anne Roberts Gardens years ago! We will for sure use her for any future garden related projects.
