Over the course of a week, I interviewed a total of three Landscape designers, all located within 10 miles of my home. I got along very well with Jay from Basics Landscaping. He came to the house within days of me first calling to make an appointment. He had a positive attitude, was very approachable, had an idea for a phased approach to the landscaping, listened to my needs, explained his thought...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
We had recently built a second floor dormer, and our front yard was completely torn up to comply with the County's new cesspool requirements. Our front yard looked like Jones Beach. Our in-ground sprinkler system was ruined. We also needed work in the backyard, as well as the sides of the yard, since overgrown trees and roots were causing trip hazards. This was going to be a big project.

The crew arrived at approximately 7:30am. I spoke with the foreman (Frankie) to let him know exactly where I wanted the stone and spigot. The crew worked feverishly all day - breaking only for lunch. The work was completed by 3:30pm. The result? Spectacular. The end product far exceeded my expectations. The area (and surrounding area's) were left immaculate.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Newly fenced in vegetable garden with seating area, was in desperate need of some hardscaping/walkway to make maneuvering easier. I have a lilac stone path that goes around my deck area, thru a small side garden, ending at one of the main gates for the backyard (which was also done by Basics several years ago). I wanted to match this stone in the veggie bed/seating area. The area also needed an accessible water outlet (spigot).

If you are looking to do a big job I recommend asking for professional plans. Farah sent me a hand written sketch via e-mail which in the end there was miscommunication because of the confusion with reading the plans. I was quoted for 10 Leyland Cypress trees. I explained other landscapers had estimated $1200 for 12 trees. This was Farah's response: and quot;You have a 30' run on the side that wil...

SERVICE PROVIDER RESPONSE

We are a professional company that has been in business for 30 years, our company offers superior work at a fair price. I had emailed you over the sketch and you approved it, it was very clear and descriptive. All the services you were receiving were typed up on an estimate that you signed, I am not sure why you thought extra plantings and services would have been included in your original install...

They are responsive. The quality is more than just good. The cost is a little bit more, but they turned our lawn from dandelions into a green lawn and fixed all our sprinklers. They were very good. I would definitely recommend them to somebody else. Their price is not as wonderful as everybody would like but definitely competitive. With regard to responsiveness, they are always there.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
We use Basics Landscaping for lawn and yard work. They also fixed all our sprinklers.
