    Littlefinger is very professional and he did an excellent job with all the work I needed at the house. He has great attention to detail and gives 110% to his work. He is conscientious and helpful as he has given me advice and tips on maintaining the property. I will definitely avail of his services again and recommend him to everyone I know.

    Alex is very professional and takes the time to make sure the job is done right. He is also very knowledgeable about garden design and which plants to use given sun patterns and color preference. I highly recommend using them. You will not be disappointed.

    A&J Landscape Design LLC
    Joanne and team are both very responsive and very profesional. They are very cognizant of neighbors and never blow leaves into the street. I used another company before A&J and though they did the basics I always had weed problems and my grass was so so. Since I began with A&J there has been significant improvement and Joanne is always great about sending notes after applications to remind you to water more or any other type of special instruction. While they are not the cheapest, you really do get what you pay for with them, which is a lot.

    New Star Landscaping & Construction
    It is with great satisfaction that I write this recommendation on behalf of New Star Landscaping. In the Spring Season of 2016 we began an extensive remodeling of our back and front yard. Our landscaping project was the most challenging as we had the misfortune to hire several unreliable landscaping companies that would not complete the work and the results didn't not meet their promises and our expectations. Fortunately in September of 2016 after much research and requests for recommendations we found Alex on Angies List and after reading all of the promising reviews we contacted them. Alex returned our call in a matter of minutes at which point he granted us a generous amount of time to allow us to discuss what we were hoping to accomplish and the amount of time and efforts we invested in order to complete the project. Alex came to our home the very next day to asses the work, suggest technics and provide us with the most competitive and honest cost estimate. His suggestions felt promising but we were still a little hesitant on what to expect as our recent experiences with landscapers had left us somewhat hopeless. Alex allowed us ample time to discuss every detail and we agreed on a date to begin the work for the next week. The day after we met we were amazed to find an email from him describing in detail all that we had agreed to work on, with pictures and total cost. The day of the work he showed up in time and with the most professional and hard working crew we had ever experienced. They worked diligently the entire day while paying attention to details that even us were not aware of and needed to be cared for. In addition Alex provided us with transportation to the nearest top quality nursery as while working on our Project we decided that additional Trees and Plants would be needed for yet an even greater improvement. He was so generous with his time and suggestion while walking through the nursery and helping us pick the most reliable and cost efficient trees. Words cannot express our gratitude for Alex's work ethics and skills. Attached please review some of our before and after shots for your reference and in addition my contact info in the event I am fortunate to have an opportunity to personally recommend Alex. We have several construction projects inside our home in the coming months which we very much look forward to have them completed by Alex and his crew. Presently his crew is caring for our weekly landscaping maintenance and the quality of their work always exceeds our expectations. Our neighbors walk by our home often and we are so so happy to be complemented by them on the results of our front yard on a daly basis. I can safely and proudly say my house is the best looking house on my block . Andrea Branas

    MTF Landscaping
    I do like them very much because I have like a partial fence that I had a pet they would put it back because they did not have a problem with that they close the gates, their neat and tidy type of thing, I'm very happy with them. They do a nice job, there is no specific day it's like some people like a specific day that's not a issue with me, they put things back when they move them, like if you have lawn furniture or something like that. I told them no chemicals cause I have an animal and they don't do that which other people may want but they follow instructions, I can tell you people say it looks nice. They are doing everything I wanted and the fact that their not doing all landscaping activities it's because of me not them. I don't want paper bills  they were willing to be responsive and email me them so they do a screen shot and send it to me.

    Joe Giordano was a pleasure to work with. Super easy. No issues whatsoever. No surprises. Definitely will call them back for springtime service and beyond. Thanks for making this an easy experience. Very refreshing to get exactly what we paid for and expected with zero hassle.

    Angel Landscaping
    Angel's team did an excellent job removing the two trees and trimming the hedges.

    The hedges were out of control at approximately 6 feet tall and needed major work and attention to get them in shape.  Frankie who performed the work did a wonderful job with the trimming.

    The tree cutting also was performed successfully.  The internet/cable connection to my house has wires that run directly through the branches of both of the trees (which is why I decided to have them both taken down).  Angel's team was able to remove the branches around the wires before cutting down the trees and did so without disrupting my internet/cable service or compromising the wires/connectivity in any way.  It was a big job and they spent two complete days removing the trees and doing the first of three leaf cleanups.  My garden and driveway looked immaculate after!  

    They have since performed the remaining two sessions of the fall foliage cleanup and did a good job each time.  I plan to use Angel's company again, specifically to perform snow removal services in the winter.

    Sal Ledonne Landscaping Contractors
    Hired Sal LeDonne to redo my front yard. It?s a modest front yard, some might even say quite small. He came in with the most attractive estimate based on what I told him I wanted (perennials, wild and shaggy shrubbery and grasses, one new tree, amend soil in the planting beds, mulch, a tiny section of wall replaced with Belgian block plus a few more to encircle a planting bed, and new sod/turf/lawn). I explained exactly what I had in mind and showed him pictures of what I liked. He said it would help if I put together a list, since he hadn?t heard of some of the plant types I was interested in. I gave him this list when we met again to sign the contract. That list represented something like 8 hours of research on my part, because my property lies in a lot of shade and faces west, so I wanted to find plants that could tolerate those conditions. I also told him in no uncertain terms, and in writing, what I DIDN?T want, which were pyramidal or spherical evergreens, which he seemed to prefer. We signed a contract on May 20, 2015, after he told me verbally (though the date was not written on the contract) that the work would be done in two weeks? time. This was part of the reason he got the job. He said he could do it SOONER than anyone else, not just cheaper.
    Two weeks later?nothing. Another date is set. Nothing. Then he suggests I go to one of his favorite garden centers to see if they have any of my plants because he doesn?t know where to find them. Huh? Isn?t that HIS job? But I do. And they do. They have almost everything. He suggests maybe I should pick some up while I?m there. Again, huh? I drive a Honda Civic. I?m not hauling around shrubs. Plus I don?t even know how many and what type to get. The ?design? is his job too. Based on my list HE should decide how many and which types will work best together and get as many as the budget will allow and arrange them in an
    attractive way. It seemed such a simple concept to me, but not to him, apparently.
    More texts and calls from me (maddeningly, he doesn?t do email), and he suggests we meet at this same garden center on Sunday, July 12, two days AFTER the most recently proposed work date, so HE can start gathering my plants, he says. I don?t know why my presence is required for this. He has the list. He knows they have 90% of the plants on it because I?VE ALREADY DONE THE LEGWORK. But I agree to go, and I show him where some of the things are that I saw when I went alone. He keeps pointing me in the direction of the kind of evergreens I hate. No gathering is done. I go home mystified and rather upset, but he?d said he could ?probably? do the work later that week, which at least was progress but I wasn?t counting on it.
    Fast-forward to July 15, when I arrive home from a doctor?s appointment to see him and his men in my yard doing prep work unannounced. A call or a text might have been appropriate, wouldn?t you think?! But there they are, doing work on my property when I?m not home. Which is funny because based on the garden-center escapade and all the shenanigans thus far I had finally resolved to call him that day and suggest we cancel our contract and get my deposit back. But oh well. Too late. Meanwhile, I see that in addition to ripping out grass and plants (which is fine and necessary) he?s cut a number of branches off my beloved Japanese maple that he had repeatedly asked if he could trim and to which I?d repeatedly said no. But HE DID IT ANYWAY! I?m furious but nevertheless I ask when he?ll be back to finish the real job (tree-trimming was definitely not on the agenda) and remind him that ONLY the plants on my list were to be used. He says he could be back the next day or maybe Friday but sounds noncommittal.
    Yet more cajoling and pressure from me gets him back on Friday July 17 because he kept answering ?When will you do the work?? with ?I have lawns to mow?(?!) and he finally arrives to do?half of the job. The plantings were installed but the sod and Belgian block were absent. Some bullroar about how he?s not in control of when he can get sod from his supplier (hmm, is it because it?s too late in the season?). I should mention that he at one point told me he had both the sod and the stones already. Which I guess was untrue. Meanwhile, among the new plants there?s no new tree. At least, not any of the trees on my list, and which I proved to him that his garden center carried. He brought me a man-made hydrangea ?tree,? which was cute, and I said as much when he pointed to it at the garden center but I had also said I didn?t want it because it seemed much too precious and was definitely not what I was expecting for the space.
    We had previously agreed to repurpose a few of the plants I already owned, so the number and type of ?new? plants he brought in seemed quite stingy, especially since there was no real tree. Also, the soil he used to amend the beds was insufficient by about 2/3. The largest of the beds had lots of old roots and poorly aerated clay-type soil, which needed real help and didn?t really get it. One of the beds wasn?t amended at all.
    Not until July 25 was the sod installed and Belgian block put in and the job "complete." Two MONTHS after we signed a contract. Not two weeks. Aside from the stinginess factor, it looked nice on the day, but the fussy hydrangea tree died a few days later (big surprise). To Sal?s credit, he replaced it with another tree, but only after I griped about it nonstop. A tree that was actually on my list. The replacement tree was in so-so shape when it went in, but it seems like it actually might survive. It?s not thriving, but it?s not clearly dead either, which is more than I can say for some of the other plants. A number of the other new plants went on to die, even with vigilant watering as instructed, including the ?showpiece? foundation plant, the same species of hydrangea as that dumb tree. The most sun-loving of all the hydrangea cultivars, I came to learn, planted guess where? In deepest shade. Jury is still out on the ultimate fate of the sod as of October, though it seems to have taken hold. 
    I?m pretty convinced that overall I?ve wasted not only my money but oh so much of my time and energy on this project and will need to hire someone else to come fix the damage in the spring. This is a long story about why it?s never smart to take the lowest bid, or to sign a contract with no work date specified on it. And also why it?s not a good idea to hire Sal LeDonne, who can?t manage his time or keep his clients? needs in mind even when they do half his work for him and provide continual, exhausting reminders.
    ?Bonus?: Each time we met, Sal managed to comment on my appearance, which is just a cherry on an already unprofessional sundae.

    Angel Landscaping
    Angel and his crew installed trees for me and filled in an uneven area in my backyard.  He was very responsive and genuinely likes what he does and cares about the results of his work which is a rare find. I highly recommend him and his crew. They are professional and provide a great service and can be trusted. I would and will use them again for my landscaping needs in the the future. Thanks Angel!
