Recent Review: I met Rick Knowles, the owner, across a fence between my yard and my neighbor. Rick was there doing landscape "cleanup" for my neighbor. This was October, 2013. I expressed interest in his lawn service, he got my email, etc, said he'd send me his standard contract that evening. He did as promised and then followed up with a phone call to answer any of my questions. He's been taking care of our yard since. I'm totally happy with that work. Now comes an even better review. We had been discussing adding an addition to our patio since last December. At that point we had no idea that Rick did paver's, etc. So, I got an Angieslist, made phone calls, sent emails, etc, etc for about two weeks. Of the six companies I tried contacting 2 called back, one showed up and gave me an estimate that was ridiculous. As luck would have it, Rick was working with his crew in our yard one day and I mentioned my irritation of people not calling back for estimates, etc. Once I found out he did this kind of jobs I was excited because of knowing how he performed his work for me. He came by the next day, we sat and described what we wanted, measured out the area, talked a bit more about the process, materials, and time frame. He was busy enough that we were two months out from getting it done. We talked several times leading up to the job starting. The date finally arrived, he and crew were on time, and had the necessary equipment to get'er done. I'll not bore you with the details but will say that every single he promised he did, plus other things that were a real nice surprise to us. To say that we're very pleased with the workmanship, professionalism, personal touches, his crew, quality of the materials used is simply an understatement. It is SO refreshing to find a small business that does care about his job, what he produces, and the customer he does it for. I've recommended Advance Landscaping to many people already and will continue to do so. Give him an opportunity, you won't be disappointed!
