    Green Escapes Nursery Inc
    Our backyard had holes and divots from cutting down several trees over the years and needed leveling. We also needed a drainage system on one side of the house. I had three candidates come out to give us estimates. Green Escapes sent out Jose��� on a Saturday morning. I was impressed already. I liked Jose���s approach, which was to save as much of my grass as possible. Another company wanted to remove all grass, grade the yard, and install new sod. Jose��� did not want to bring any more sod than needed and wanted to wait until the spring to do that. I was gathering quotes in October or November. He was afraid of the sod dying over the winter before it could take root. He proposed having the drain empty at the street, which was my preference. Another company wanted to stop on my side of the sidewalk with the water flowing over the sidewalk. I did not like that idea. I thought it was tacky and inconsiderate of those using the sidewalk. This other company also proposed a much broader network of drainage, which I felt was overkill. This company and another I had come out, gave estimates of close to six thousand dollars. Green Escapes gave a quote of just over three thousand. The only issue I had with Green Escapes was the time it took to get the quote. A couple of weeks passed between the time Jose��� came out and the time the company sent me a quote. By that time, I had hired one of the other companies even though I was not comfortable doing so. I was not going to call a company to beg for a quote. The other companies delivered a quote within one or two days of coming out. As it turned out, I let the first company go after the first day on the job. At the time I still did not have a quote from Green Escapes. I felt I would be doing the job myself with some rented equipment. However, unbeknownst to me, my wife called Green Escapes the day after I let the other company go. Green Escapes called me that day with a quote and followed up the same day with the quote in writing. They were apologetic about the delay in sending a quote. Honestly, I was glad to hear from them since I did not know exactly what I was going to do about my yard after parting ways with the first company. I had a better feeling about Green Escapes from the time Jose��� came out. I liked that they were a bigger company, owned a nursery, and I liked Jose��� and his ideas. Of course, when I saw the quote I could not believe it. The quote was far more detailed than the ones I got from the other companies and, as I said earlier, was almost half as much. I jumped on agreeing to the contract. They contacted 811, the call before you dig agency, which came out within a day to mark utilities so Green Escapes did not hit anything. I paid a portion upfront by mailing a check, but felt fine with paying some upfront. I sent the payment via certified mail with signature. You can deliver the payment to their store in Prairieville, but that was inconvenient for me. Green Escapes let me know when they would be coming to do the work and said they would arrive at 7am. They were true to their word. They showed up somewhere between 6:55am and 7:05am the day they said they would. The crew got to work immediately with no wasted time having coffee, etc. They worked non-stop except for a short lunch break. They leveled all the high and low points of the yard and began on the drainage system. They continued working until 5pm or so the first day. The second day a two-man crew showed up to finish installing the drainpipe from the back corner of the house to the street, which is a considerable distance in my opinion, especially considering the entire pipe trench was dug with shovels. The drainpipe was PVC schedule 40. The sections that were in the area to be drained were constructed of perforated 4-inch pipe with solid pipe connecting the perforated sections to the drain at the street. They do not use the black corrugated drainpipe, because they say it collapses over time. That was the material the other companies planned to use. Schedule 40 PVC pipe is the same material my main sewer line is made of. Although not in the contract, Green Escapes put out several squares of sod over the area water would be flowing into the perforated pipe and around the area water would be flowing out at the street. Very nice of them to do so I thought. I am very pleased with the work. The main question most people ask when considering a contractor is, would you hire them again. My answer to that is, absolutely and I wouldn���t bother calling anyone else to give me a quote on landscape work.

    Precision Tree Service
    It was necessary to use a crane to remove the large oak tree. It spanned 120 feet, its trunk was about six feet in diameter. All tree work was done on the first day, including removal of all tree parts and debris. The large stump was ground out the next day. The work was done on time, and for the quoted price. I used this company for a previous job and will use them again if I need tree work in the future. The Littons, and all the Precision Tree Service staff are wonderful 1

    Leforts Lawns for Less
    Mr Lefort ensures my lawn is manicured every 2 weeks. He works fast and is very professional. He did a great job with mowing, weed eating and blowing. I will refer him to others and I���m also glad I found him.

    Leforts Lawns for Less
    Leforts is excellent. They make scheduling easy via timely texts and payments are easy with GooglePay. The lawn looks great! I have also had them do several small projects clearing and pruning. The rates are reasonable and the work was done well.

    Leforts Lawns for Less
    Chase has been amazing. I'm an out of town homeowner and Chase has been very sensitive to that. Pics of the work, done in a timely manner without prodding. When the weather keeps him from being able to get the work done, he communicates that as well. I'mso glad to finally have found someone trustworthy!!

    Leforts Lawns for Less
    My ZYR mower was a victim of the 2016 flooding and I had to get rid of it I just didn���t want to have to deal with the yard and the house. So, I used Angie���s List to find a yard guy. I got a call from Lefort���s Lawns and I have been thrilled to have him do my yard!!!

    Precision Tree Service
    Very well. Large crane and workers took tree down. Gigantic stump was grinded and all debris was taken away. Project was completed in less than two days. The owners are professional, easy to work with and incredibly nice!

    Green Leaf Tree Service
    The tree removal process went as smoothly as we could have hoped. Their initial contact met with me and we discussed different options that we could use to clear up the problem with a dying tree as well as a few other issues and he clearly explained what his recommendations were and the costs and levels of effort involved. The price that was discussed even included a veteran's discount so that was a bonus. The day of the tree removal, the team showed up promptly, first thing in the morning and began quickly. I was updated with texts and images/videos throughout the process and they completed ahead of schedule. When I got home for my "inspection", the yard had been cleaned and leveled. The leftover debris was also removed from the yard the same day and every effort was made by that crew to leave the front with as little disturbance as possible. The professionalism exhibited in this job left myself and my wife very satisfied.

    Precision Tree Service
    Precision Tree was recommended to me by a coworker several years ago. I have used them multiple times since to prune trees and even had them remove a medium sized tree that was only a few feet from my home. They are professional, fair on price, and experienced. I will continue to use them for future tree maintenance needs.
