Vin did an excellent job! He mowed the lawn, pruned the garden, and tidied up the greenery both in front of the house and in the backyard voluntarily without my asking. We are very very happy!

Sean made my front yard, and backyard INCREDIBLY beautiful! The lemon tree, in the backyard is ready to be picked once again! I'm actually having a picnic underneath it now :) He made sure there was just enough left for a nice shade, and some extra love to make it a beautiful tree. I absolutely recommend him to anyone needing some any kind of work done on trees. THANK YOU FOR BEING THE BEST!!!!!! Its like.. magic.

Ted and team did an awesome job on our backyard. We had Wrigley Field ivy that needed taming as well as other unruly plants and shrubs that needed to be brought under control. And oh yeah, the weeding. The guys did a tremendous job. We are very happy and will definitely hire Ted again.

We got our backyard lawn and surrounding area redone with green touch landscaping. Carlos and his team did the job in a very professional way and on time. His pricing was also very affordable. We plan to work with him for all our future landscaping needs.

Ricardo was recommended by a friend & did a great job with my backyard. My backyard looked like a forest. Ricardo cleaned everything out & brought down a 20foot old tree that was dying. We then decided to go with decomposed granite with stone walkway. He added plants along the walkway for extra decoration. Looks amazing. 10/10

We recently hired Keith and his team to complete a small project in our backyard which included weeding, leveling, removal of a stump, mulching and a small hogwire fence. We obtained 4 bids for this project. Keith was very punctual and professional. His bid was very competitive. He started the work promptly as promised, and his crew was very hard working and friendly. The cleaned up the project area at the end of each day. When material costs ended up being higher than he originally estimated, he shared with me the invoice, and I felt he was dealing with me honestly, and we adjusted the project cost accordingly. Keith completed the project well ahead of our deadline, and we are very happy with the end result. We are looking forward to working with him on future projects.

Jeremy and Edible Ecology did great work on a small backyard clearing job. Jeremy was incredibly knowledgeable about different plants and trees. He clearly knew his stuff, and him and his team were also friendly. I highly recommend the quality of their work. The initial per hour rate per worker was also reasonable and competitive. However, I felt a subsequent quote to finish the clearing job and do other backyard work was way too high and was not in line with the initial hourly rate.
