    Davis Outdoor Svcs LLC
    Great! We absolutely love the work they did. It has improved our home's curb appeal and value. It is a joy to come home to such wonderful craftsmanship. Their attention to detail shows and they worked very well with me (a woman) to help achieve my vision. The LED lighting is spectacular at night. I would highly recommend Davis Outdoor Services and will not hesitate to hire them again.

    Hard to determine how hydro seed goes until it comes up. We hydro seeded later in the fall so did not know result until spring. I think he hydro seeded with weed mix. Very unhappy with the lawn appearance, too many weeds and fescue. Do not believe the soil was properly prepped nor did he put in enough topsoil on a very clay based lot. Very light on the mulch and will have to completely redo. Downspots were buring but the outlet placed incorrectly resulting in erosion and required replacement. Set up the beds for soaker hose and could not get him to respond to calls to complete the job. Overall, poor performance, and poor communication. No response when tried to get him to finish the job. Cannot recommend.

    Top Grade Llc
    Fantastic! His regrading of the gravel driveway removed all the potholes and smoothed out the grooves. No added gravel was needed at this time. He even promised to come back after the next hard rain and smooth it over again for free. Unbelievable. He saved me thousands of dollars being quoted by an excavator to bring in tons of crushed limestone and re-grading my 100 yard driveway.

    If you have a gravel driveway, it needs annual maintenance. If you have a gravel parking lot and want to get rid of the weeds and smooth things over, Top Grade Driveway Grooming is your guy! And if you have a private gravel road, say no more. Sign up for a regular improvement program that adds extra gravel, maintenance for $1500 a year.

    King Septic Service
    Ed Bugis was wonderful to work with.   I had a leak in the pipe leading from my home out to the septic tank.  Horrible raw sewage was seeping down the wall underneath the pipe and leaked onto the floor and underneath the carpet.  Ed was quickly able to see what the problem was and what was causing it.   He also said because it was INSIDE the house, that it was the domain of a plumber to repair the problem.   If the problem was outside, then it would have been a septic issue.   I am still hopeful that all is well with my septic system and there are no problems with THAT.   So, on with my story.  On an unbelievably freezing cold day (even for Michigan), Ed and his two helpers were outside digging through the snow and frozen ground to solve my problem.   Ed went above and beyond to help me.   He left me his cell phone number so that the plumber could speak with him directly and get a further diagnosis of the problem.   This leak was a complicated and troublesome type of problem to fix because a lot of the problem was not visible through the wall.   In other words, the pipe had to be cut away and removed and looked into before further diagnosis of the causes of the leak could be figured out.    Ed made recommendations and provided me with a phone number for a plumber that he had personal knowledge of.    I could tell that Ed genuinely cared about how stressed out I was and also that he saw that the problem was a serious emergency.    Ed even followed up with me the next day on his own time to see if I had been able to contact the plumber!    He actually provided me with another phone number for the plumber since I had not been able to track down a plumber that could come out on short notice.   But get this:    I actually had the plumber that I DID find (since it turns out that Ed's plumber was on another job and just was not available) call Ed and have him talk to him and describe the problem so that the plumber was not just going in there "blind" without knowing what he was getting into.   AND Ed was at a sports activity with one of his children and STILL took the time to talk to the plumber and be helpful about  my problem!    So, guess what?  If I ever (God forbid) have any type of septic issue again, I will be calling King Septic Company.   Professional, prompt, courteous and KIND.   Thanks so much, Mr. Ed Bugis!   I appreciate your kindness during a difficult and stressful time.   There is still basement cleanup to do and I have to talk to my insurance company, but at least the leak is fixed now and there is no more sewage and/or water leaking into my basement.

    Gordon Excavating
    Mr Gordon came and did the excavation in December. During the process he cut through three pipes that go to our swimming pool. Since it was cold, he didn't want to finish the job and said that he would return in the spring to fix the pipes and to fill in the hole he dug. This spring I called to schedule a time for him to finish the work and got a phone message a couple of days later giving me the name of another company who I was supposed to call and arrange for them to finish the work. Since we had paid for the job in full in December.I called them and told them that they should finish the job or pay for the other company to finish. She said that she would have to check with Dave and would call me back.. She never did of course.
