Always satisfied with the work 5 Star does and the staff are affable and always willing to do just that little extra that makes the difference between just someone doing a job and someone who loves what they do.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
5 Star has been our "go to" lawn service for many years, since the beginning I think. Years ago we used Five Star just for gutter cleaning twice a year. Then we needed lawn mowing services and they came to our rescue. Then we wanted to re-landscape our property and it was breeze. We handed the project over to them and it was done perfectly, making suggestions we hadn't thought about and creating an inviting entrance to our home. As the years progressed we have used 5 Star for all our exterior needs...lawn mowing, landscaping and snow removal.

I have a lot of trees so in the fall I have A LOT of leaves. I would spend hours racking and taking trailer loads of leaves to the yard waste several times during the fall. They blow the leaves out of all the nooks and crannies and get it all ready for winter in maybe a little over an hour. It is so worth the money for the time it saves me. I usually have them come back and run over the lawn with ...

Donnie is personal, professional, responsive, and does a fantastic job. I am grateful to have run across him on Angie's List. My neighbors have since hired him as well, and sing his praises when we chat in the street.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Donnie has been taking care of my lawn and snow removal for several years now. He's incredibly responsive when I think I can handle something on my own like fall leaf removal, then realize I completely overestimated myself. He showed up literally the day after I called. He's almost always on site himself, along with one or two crew members, and takes great care of his customers.

Donny did a good job planting the evergreen trees for me. However, I think I was overcharged and he didn't do anything to prove me wrong. Per his invoice, it cost him $91 per tree for a 2'' to 3'' Colorado spruce. The same tree (same height and/or higher) costs $24.99 at Lowes. I found out about the huge price difference the same day the trees were planted and went back to Donny. I asked him to pr...

Hey [Member Name Removed], I called and left you a message. You were very happy when we completed the work. I'm sorry you found a close out sale at the local Lowe's that following weekend. We get all of our trees from a nursery. I provided you with a actual copy of the receipt for what they cost us which was 91 each. We installed 13 of them for 1400. We made a little over 200 to deliver and instal...

while he did a good job in mowing he has been unreliable this season. no answers when contacting him and last time he was supposed to come and mow he was a no-show/no-call. He also failed to replace 3 plant which were planted by them last year and didn't make it.  Was disappointing as last year the service was different/better

Hey [Member Name Removed], We serviced your yard for many years in which you never had anything bad to say. We also got many referrals from you in your neighborhood in which we still provide services for today. With that being said plants need water after they are planted. We buy all of our plants from nursery's in the area. They stay alive in plastic pots for a long time as long as they are water...

Donny was great. He was communicative, punctual, thorough, fairly priced, and exceeded my expectations with the spring clean-up. I had a ton of leaves left over from the previous fall. Donny gave me my estimate, scheduled the time he would be out there and took care of everything. I would definitely use Donny again and would recommend him to anyone.
