Recent Review: Excellent. Taylor is a wonderful man to work with, sweet, smart, and professional, and has a good crew. He was very patient when we changed our mind about things a couple of times, and came back and replaced a tree that didn't make it.

Recent Review: Liza, the owner of Avant Gardening, came to our house for several design meetings and listened closely to what we hoped for--a garden that looked its best in the fall and had a slightly Asian look, a graceful transition from our house to the street, and some privacy screening. She took those raw ideas and came up with a beautiful plan we never would have thought of ourselves. Her crew showed up promptly each morning, were always courteous, and informed us of progress made or questions they had at the end of each day. If we asked for a change, for instance in the way the steps were laid out, they made the change immediately, without complaint, and without charge. The plants Liza chose for our garden were absolutely perfect--a slightly Asian look with low maintenance. She mixed colors and textures like an artist--our garden looked like no other garden in our neighborhood. It was quite the talk of the street, too. I can't tell you how often people stopped by to compliment us. In fact, when we sold our house, everyone who looked at the house commented on the incredible curb appeal, and I've no doubt that wonderful landscaping helped us sell in a mere 4 days! I would definitely hire Avant Gardening again, and I can recommend their services without hesitation.

Recent Review: They clearly love what they do and are great at it! My garden finally looks nice, plants clearly defined, landscaped area well defined, and I love looking out my windows and walking around it. Thanks to Street Appeal I'm no longer considering just paving my backyard...

Recent Review: Ellen did an extensive design for three areas of our back yard and was very responsive to our suggestion of doing it in stages. Area 1 involved repairing a boulder wall to reduce erosion on one side of the yard and placing a rock garden on that slope with new nursery stock. Area 2 involved grading a large area, building up the sides to aid water retention, and installing 60 rain garden plants and some shrubs. Her design was fabulous and we accepted it as submitted. The crew was excellent and Ellen was on site for most of the work. The results are stunning - especially the rain garden! (Area 3 work will hopefully get completed next season - we're adding three raised bed gardens with steps and a walkway from the deck. )

Recent Review: Our woodland gardens had gotten out of land over the past three years. Adolfo came, discussed what we wanted to do, and then spent a full day weeding the beds and another spreading mulch.  He was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, and his crew first rate.  We will have him back to upgrade the gardens, mow the lawns, and clear snow in the future.

APRUDENT PRUNING CO
Prudent Pruning has done work for me for four years, and I have been completely pleased. I had a bad experience before them, and went searching for a new gardening service. Wendy, and her crew, were pleasant, wonderful with my young children. Showed up when they said they would, kept their work area spotless, and always removed their tools at the end of each day. They embraced my idea for my garden, offered practical advice and options, always kept within budget, helped me to prioritize, and created the garden of my dreams. They were always on time and on budget. They continue to help with maintenance, which has decreased as plants flourish. My garden is beautiful, growing and thriving. Many events, birthdays , anniversaries and dinners have been held in the garden, because I just love to show it off.

We bought a new house in the winter and were looking for a service provider to take care of our lawn and garden that was in need of a lot of repairs and care. We contact them via Angie s list and unlike many others they got back to us ASAP. They sent someone to see the property and sent us an estimate right away with a lot of options. Since we are not big experts in this area I call them and asked for some recommendations and explanations about what to do. They sent us one of their managers, Jose, who came to our place and was very caring and trustful in explaining and recommending everything we should do, not trying to push all their services but even helping us in finding ways to save some money. After we made our selections, in the same week, they came with a great team and performed everything exactly the way it was promised. We liked so much their service and their quality that we decided to select them as our permanent lawn service provider, closing an one year contract with them.

It was OK. We thought the price was great for all that was done. Our walkway and rock garden look wonderful. The front yard looks great but they didn't seem to put as much effort into the backyard. The front was completely tore up and seeded while in the back they basically picked & chose patches of grass to cultivate and reseed. There was minimal communication with the owner and he only stopped by the first time to quote our price - he didn't come by during the 3 days his team was there and he never once called to see how things look. When I had complaints about the backyard he didn't do much apologizing and when I asked that he come by (while we were home) to look at the areas and reseed, he sent his team during a time I said we WOULD NOT be home. They reseeded the area and didn't even tell us they were going in the backyard! It wasn't until I noticed new seeds and called to ask. He didn't give us any information on how to keep upkeep the yard and there are A LOT of weeds still growing. He also didn't ask for payment after the work was done. It wasn't until we noticed the (very minimal) contract stated we would inquire a fee if paid after 30-days.. we called him (after many email attempts/requests to call us) to give our payment information and I can't help but think it was intentional so that we would have to pay extra. Our yard does look good now and I am happy with the outcome (other than the backyard not being as nice as the front) but I'm not sure about the communication/professionalism of the owner.

Very nice job. Showed up on time and pulled weeds - not good plants - which is not always easy to do in a woodland garden.

AJohannsen's Greenhouse
This is an well-established, locally owned nursery and gardening supply retailer. Their specialty is perennials and native plants, although they also carry a good selection of annuals and indoor plants. They don't have trees or large shrubs, but do carry a selection of small shrubs, including hardy roses. The sales areas are well arranged. Perennials have their own room, and annuals are in an adjoining sections. The mind-boggling perennial collection could be overwhelming, but it is well organized. The perennials are laid out alphabetically by name, and also grouped by light and shade preference. There are (usually) helpful labels to tell you the pros and cons, and special needs, of each plant. This really saves time when you are shopping for plants to fill a particular space. I'm an organic garden enthusiast and shop there every year for plants, mulches, and miscellaneous garden supplies. However, if you use conventional gardening methods, they have the normal range of fertilizers and pesticides, and can recommend appropriate products for your situation. They also sell gardening books and yard decor items, but the major emphasis is on plants. I have been completely satisfied with their products and service. Compared to the large chain and big box stores that sell plants and gardening supplies, Johannsen's prices can be somewhat higher. Their value comes from the expertise of the people there, and from the wide selection of native plants that are perfect for rain gardens, prairie planting and other forms of "green" landscaping. The staff are knowledgeable and can either answers your questions, or refer you to another source of information on the rare occasions when they don't know the answer. The location is an unglamorous frontage road on Madison's West Beltline near the intersection with Todd Drive. It can be easy to miss this spot if you are driving by, but it is worth your while to stop there if you are looking for a reliable source of native plants.

AO'BRIEN TRUCKING INC
O'Brien delivered 3 yards of sifted soil mixed with manure. The soil looks really nice and is well-sifted. Cost was well under the other phone calls I made, I was able to set up delivery when I needed it, and the delivery guy was punctual to the minute and a pleasure to deal with. Would definitely call them again for garden supply delivery!

Errin Schlapbach did a great job designing something that I liked and that was appropriate to my gardening skills (almost zero); and the gardening crew got the job done in one day. I've gotten a lot of compliment from neighbors, and Errin has been very quick to respond with answers to my questions. She's also stopped by the house to check on the plants afterward when I concerned about how they were doing. I'd highly recommend them - wonderful job.

AGood Oak Ecological Services
Good Oak is a first rate company, who I've come to depend on since I started a major restoration project around my home in 2013. Each year since then, I've called on Good Oak to help me take another step in the restoration process. In addition to the removal of invasive woody plants, Good Oak has installed a large border garden in my yard and several native shrubs for screening. I have also utilized their landscape design services to establish garden pathways and this year I am following their guidance in the installation of a rain garden. While I've enjoyed working with all members of the Good Oak team, I'd like to give special thanks to Allison, Athena, and Amy Jo, as I've interacted with them most frequently throughout the last few years. Thanks for all your great work! I look forward to another fun planting season!
