I hired Mr. Freeman to repair the drainage system in the back yard, plant deer-resistant and drought resistant plants, repair the irrigation system, and install lighting in the yard. The work was in progress for about 1-1/2 months, which was appropriate for the amount of work. I was pleased that at the start of the job Mr. Freeman wrote up a detailed contract for the work to be done and the line item costs for my approval. During the job, I made some changes to the work to be done, and Mr. Freeman wrote the change order so both work and cost changes were in writing and agreed upon. He kept me informed of the progress of the work, informed me in advance when he would be on the property, and arrived on schedule. In addition, Mr. Freeman gave me a lot of advice about fertilizing plants, time schedules for running the sprinklers, how to repot plants, and more. He works with a horticulture expert who advised me on appropriate plants for the various locations in the yard and plants that deer do not like to eat, do not require a lot of water, and do attract birds and butterflies. The work done was excellent quality - both the materials used and the workmanship in repairs and plantings. In summary, Mr Freeman fulfilled the contract with regard to work and costs. The work was completed in a timely manner with the agreed-upon costs, I was pleased with the way he and his staff did the work, and I'm pleased with the results.
