They are great. They did a nice job. They are a little slow to respond. Some things that they planted died and they come back out and they replace it. They got around it eventually.

Extremely low quality. They hire very unskilled workers that just try to finish a lawn as quickly as possible. They tore up my lawn pretty good. I was constantly calling asking for their guys to slow down, but it didn't do any good. Very poor customer service, even worse quality. I called twice in June of 2016 to complain to have them slow down because they were flying through with large commercia...

The guys at BTB got in and out quickly, doing a good job on our mulch removal as they usually do.  We've used BTB for mulch replacement and removal, bed improvements, yard care, water systems, and more since moving to Parkville a few years back.  They do good work at a fair price, and our neighbors have used them as well.  The only hit on them at times is communication - I've had several instances...

By the Blade was hired by my townhouse association approximately 5 years ago.  During this time they have destroyed flower, vegetables, newly planted grass and seed.  They have promised reimbursement but never followed thru.  Last year and this year so far they are mowing with equipment that is ineffective.  The blades obviously are not sharpened and the mowers are not level. Consequently the lawn...

I went to Cripple Creek Rock Company to look at materials for building a retaining wall to prevent an erosion issue in my front yard.  At first I was going to do the work myself... but I've already got too many projects and too little time, so I asked them for a landscape contractor recommendation.  By The Blade Landscaping was the name of the contractor that they recommended highly for completing...
