The entire team at Goodfellows took our vision and made it a reality. They were timely, hard working and came in right on budget. Al and his team were responsive and communicated well throughout the process and continues to check in on the progress of our project (seed growth, watering, mowing, etc). We highly recommend Al and the team at Goodfellows!

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
We used Al at Goodfellows to remove a naturally landscaped yard. The project included grading a mounded portion of property and replacing most landscaped areas with sod/seed to create a family friendly yard. We also had Al and his team create a natural edge mulch bed along our fence, clean up overgrown planting beds and remove some worn stairs to replace with a rock wall. The rock wall was an add on once the project was underway and Al and his team we able to provide options to keep the additional work cost effect and tied in with the rest of the yard.

It went really well. Al and Corey are both fantastic to work with. I moved into a house where the yard was in rough shape. I talked to several different landscaping companies and decided on Goodfellows after the initial meeting. Al had such great suggestions for tweaking the design and thinking about the project, that I knew I would regret it if I chose someone else. The customer service is really...

Quick response to our inquiry; punctual for the appointments and to begin the project. Very professional and engaging. Al offered several great ideas and matched our project cost to our budget. Plan was to cut down  all the weed growth on our cliff of a hill, spray everything with weed killer, cover the whole area with dormant seeded crown vetch which would germinate with the spring thaw and retak...

Goodfellows was great to work with!  They were always very responsive and clear in their communication.  The cost was significantly less expensive than other estimates we received.  The work was done on schedule and turned out great in the end, despite running into some unexpected issues due to the need to level out or yard, which was more of a slope than we originally thought.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
The deck in our backyard was torn down and replaced with a paver stone patio.  Then, sod was put down in the yard to replace areas that had previously been mulch.

I have been hesitant to write this review because I think Al and his team were tremendous people:  punctual, honest, hardworking.  I think they also did a pretty good job, but there is one thing that became clear to me soon after the job was done.   I had asked--very clearly--for new, high quality growing soil.  I have poor quality clay soil and things don't grow well in it.  I was so clear that I...

Al and his team are excellent to work with from the design stage, through installation and invoicing.  They are knowledgeable, respectful and just all around great guys.  They actually came in under the estimate so they watch your budget closely and only bill you for the actual items and services they provide.  I would highly recommend them!

It went very well.  They did what they said they were going to do; now it is draining well and the new grass has come in very well.  They came back after the initial work to follow up and reseed.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Changed the grade of a low area adjacent to a driveway to allow it to drain out; reseeded the area and put on an erosion mat.
