    Clear Cut Tree - SavATree
    Dan Riccio was quick to respond to my request for a quote. He had done some landscaping for a relative of mine and I was impressed with what he had done. My house is 10 years old and the current landscape was looking tired and overgrown. He arrived at my house on time, asked lots of questions to ensure he had a good idea of what I was looking for. He clearly explained the next steps he would follow which included having a landscape designer come to the house to create a blueprint of the new design. A few weeks later Dan returned with the plan and carefully walked me through it, explaining the trees and plants recommended and the overall design elements. We then walked the property and he once again showed me how the new design would look. Once we agreed on the plan we gave a deposit and about a week or so later Dan's crew arrived with a truckload of high quality trees and plants. I laughed when I came home from work and saw all the trees in my front yard because it looked like I had opened a garden center!! Over the week, the landscape crew worked tirelessly to remove the old plants and install the new ones. They arrived on time every day and worked well into the evening. They even worked on Saturday to ensure they finished the job within a week as promised. When the job was done I could not believe the transformation that had taken place. My landscape went from ho hum to absolutely awesome. I told Dan that he actually managed to exceed my expectations. I would recommend this team to others without hesitation. Dan ensures promises made are promises kept and when you are spending this kind of money you expect high quality results....and that is exactly what I got!! I should also add that Dan called multiple times to ensure everything was progressing as intended and to answer any questions I might have had. He works hard to ensure complete customer satisfaction.

    OUTSTANDING!!! Duncan Downie's Septic & Excavation was fantastic! Extremely professional & respectful of the property, very fast & punctual, explained what was going on so I was aware of what they were doing & the most REASONABLE quote for the work that needed to be accomplished. If you have septic work to be done in the Old Saybrook area, Duncan Downie is the ONLY way to will NOT be disappointed!

    Frank Talarico & Son, Inc.
    They have gone far above the call of duty for me.  They were the only person in town who would help me in a very dire situation.   They also do excellent work and I highly recommend them.  It's a business with heart.

    Stark Landscaping & Fence
    Excellent service and punctual. Quoted price was accurate. They did not try to hit us with extra charges. We plan on having an irrigation (sprinklers) system put in for lawn and gardens.

    Homescapes LLC
    On 9/30/2011 I contacted Homescapes, from Angie's, list to inquire about the excavation of the above mentioned pilings. Kyle promptly came out to discuss the job and provide an estimate. He worked with the builder and created a spacious area to build the new footings with ease of movement for placing the base boxes and sonotubes. He moved the tree and lilies to the back yard and replanted the tree when he came back to back fill the trenches. The lilies were later replanted at another location and not part of out contract. Kyle was prompt, careful, cooperative and fair in his pricing. I would definitely use him again.

    Elm City Services
    We hired a construction company out of Guilford, CT to remove soil from one area and build up another so that we can install a swimming pool. The original company was not the cheapest bid, but we thought that because they promised to get the job done properly, with permits, safely, and that it would pass a building inspectors inspection, we would go with them. Not only did we have to chase the original company we found out that they did not obtain building permits. We hired Elm City to do the job over once we found that it did not pass the building inspector inspection and that the original company refused to fix what needed to get fixed. Our attorney is handling the original company. Elm City saved the day. They were great! I would recommend them to EVERYONE!

    They did superbly.  Their estimate of the cost of the work was the lowest I could find, and the final cost was even less than their estimate.  While this alone would serve as a good recommendation for their company, each person and each team was both highly professional and very respectful and polite, and I ended up liking them all.  They worked fast and well, were always very available and responsive, and always satisfactorily answered all my questions (even those that I did not know to ask), and they addressed each concern of mine quickly and completely.   I highly recommend this company to whomever needs hazmat removal, demotion work, or construction.

    The driveway was graded so all of the water flowed towards the garages and pooled in and in front of the garages. Part of the problem was that water from the road was coming down the drivway and pooling at the lowest spot. I got three quotes and Anderson was by far the lowest but I was very confident after meeting with one of the brothers during the quote. It took a while for them to get to it becasue they were so busy, but I saw that as a fairly good sign. They completed everything while I was at work, I expected it to take much longer than a day, but when I got home everything was done. I also asked if they could pull a tree stump out of the driveway while they were grading it, and they did it no problem. It has rained fairly substantially since the job was completed and no rain is coming in from the road, and no rain is pooling in the driveway.

    Jkt Septic & Excavation LLC
    We recently had to replace our septic tank. Jeff came come over the day we called and provided an estimate in writing the next day. Estimates for both a cement and plastic tank (we went with plastic) were reasonable and below other estimates we received. They were able to get started right away and the work was done very quickly. It took two days to complete, including draining the old tank, and there were no issues. There was no mess and the ground was raked, seeded, and spread with hay. Service was prompt and professional.

    You could not ask for a harder-working, more conscientious, or more honest "old school" gentleman. He does not deal in contracts but in mutual trust and reliability. His word is his bond. The only "negative" thing that I can say about him is that he sometimes spreads himself too thinly by never wanting to say "No" to anyone, so you may have to wait for awhile to get your job done, although I'm sure that if you specified when it needed to be accomplished you would be satisfied. Jim Carlson and his son are highly experienced, very courteous and professional, and work very hard and persistently. James Carlson and Son removed our old septic system (which had started to leak due to our water-treatment back-washing into the septic system), and installed a new state-of-the-art system. He also installed a new dry-well for the water treatment back-wash, separate from the septic system. He covered everything with new, screened topsoil, re=seeded the yard, and covered it with hay. Then he paved the parking area with chipped asphalt. He cleaned everything up so that he left our yard looking better than when he arrived. He has a good working relationship with both state and local health and building authorities. He got all the permits, and had all the inspections, without any problems. If you need a septic system repaired or replaced, or need any excavating work done, I would highly recommend James Carlson and Son. We will use him again in a flash.
