    Worked with Mike Gross. Hired to do a small job, which was to fix a leaking sprinkler valve. Was highly responsive and accommodating even though it was a small job. And was friendly despite my having to go back and forth on hiring due to issues with another service provider. Did good quick work.

    Good response time from this company. I didn't have work done, but they came out and gave me a free estimate and breakdown of pricing, as well as provided a detailed site sketch to show what the completed work would look like. Initially, I briefly spoke with Mr. Bishop who transferred me over to his site leaders for the work estimate I requested and they quickly scheduled to meet with me. Rob and Oscar (Site leaders) came out to assess my property. They were very thorough and captured my ideas I envisioned on paper very well. They also were detailed in how they would do the work. I liked the thoroughness and assessing for possible set backs that could hurt the yard project if certain things weren't done. The only reason I didn't give them five stars is because their service pricing was over my budget. But if you can afford it, I'd recommend them. They were professional, friendly, and most importantly they showed up on time! -Bogey

    I am still waiting for an e-mail to determine dates of service and total cost discussed. I was pleased with professional way things were discussed and will better be able to rate once work is accomplished.

    Reliable. Does a good job maintaining my lawn and landscape. They come through and mow, blow, weed and trim. A little on higher side for price ( we pay $60/visit for 2 guys 1 hour every two weeks) but they're good guys.

    Their work is pretty good, and price is reasonable. We have switched from another gardener. In the process, I interviewed six gardeners and selected Down Under. We have been using them for about 6 months. So far, it has been a pretty good experience.
