    William came to our house to finish cutting down a very large stump. He was very professional and well mannered. The job was bigger than expected, but he got it done and did a great job! Thank you.

    Started with needing sprinkler repair, but also had some fairly major landscaping work I wanted done as well. Bill was there next day, got the sprinklers working ( at a very reasonable price ), so I asked about the landscaping. He took some measurements, took a look at what I wanted and said he would quote it. this was Friday, by Monday morning I had the quote. I had originally been impressed with his reviews, and ability to do the whole job without me having to deal with different contractors. After further discussing the quote, we gave Bill the go ahead, and work began very quickly. Everything was done in a timely manner, even beyond my expectations. If he said he would be there, he would. All the work was done to our complete satisfaction, and it looks GREAT !. I would highly recommend Bill for any job big or small.

    Never did any work for this person, was delayed by weather and when I got a hold of him to do the work he had changed his mind. I asked him to remove this review and he said he would.Type your response to this review.

    We had 3 different areas that needed attention. The first was to hook up the current sprinkler system to the reclaimed water supply and repair any broken heads, etc.... The second was to take care of a drainage issue at the rear of the property by installing a Danish drain. And last, to build up the side yard of the property by using a retaining wall, brining in fill and laying new sod. The jobs were all completed exactly the way Bill explained they would be and in a timely fashion. I even had to ask Bill back to advise on a well water issue and he was willing to take time to explain everything and give me options to resolve the issue. Overall a very pleasant experience. I plan to use him again for another major project in the coming future.

    They did a magnificent job on my lawn and landscaping. Bill came in and identified every plant I had. He knew every aspect of every thing in my yard. He knew what I was going to say before I said it. Hire Hunt or you will always be on the hunt! He also installed a new timer on my irrigation system and now that is functioning. Still may be a work in progress. Hunt was the third person to look at my problem and the first as to what to do.

    I needed I needed sod placed in my backyard from a recent pool installation. I was surprised by the quick response I received bill. He came right out that very day gave me a estimate and a day of completion. He is a man of his word. The job was completed when he said it would be and he uses top quality sod. The quality of his work above reproach and we are very satisfied with the job he has done. We will definitely call him when we need any more work done. Great job bill thanks for your professionalism and dedication.

    Sprinkler man Jack came on time and did a fine job when he arrived to evaluate my problem. I was in need of a new sprinkler box and solenoid valves to complete the job. He called me later with prices which were a little out of my range. Thank you Jack for a timely evaluation. I will continue to use Bill's company for lawn and landscaping jobs.

    A++++++ I hired Hunt's Lawn & Landscape to redesign the landscape with new edging, weed barrier, rock and bushes. Bill went over and above my expectations! He is dependable and trustworthy. He responded within minutes of being contacted, came out to my house the same day and greatly improved the initial plans with the entire project finished within 4 days of the original idea! Bill and his friendly worker did an excellent job and left neat and clean. Thank you!

    I originally had Bill cut my lawn ... which he is still doing. Then we talked and he started to do odd jobs with my lawn ... he is now working on a curbing that surrounds the pool. After that he is going to plant a privacy hedge of hibiscus by the pool. I am so happy with his work, I gave my son a month of lawn care for his birthday and he liked his work so well he continued the service. I can't recommend him enough ... he's the best!

    Over a 3 week period Bill completely redesigned & landscaped our front yard to include new sod, 9 Royal Palm trees, date palms & numerous other plants. He was on time from the first meeting & stayed on budget. He & his crew cleaned up the yard waste daily & maintained daily communication concerning the progress. I would recommend his company to anyone looking for landscape services. We were completely satisfied with the service.

    Bill called us within a hour of us asking for information on landscaping. Came out the next day and gave us a price on sprinkler system repair and a complete landscaping replacement, which included trees, plants, grass and curbing. He and his team where great. We couldn't be more pleased with out outcome. Great company and people to work with. Gave us a time frame and he finished the job in half the time and everything looks great. Thanks you Bill!!

    We moved to Cape Coral in July. Our home had beautifully appointed landscaping, yet it was overgrown. We called Bill a few weeks ago and consulted with him about how we wanted the landscaping to eventually look. Yesterday he came out with a crew and pulled dead tree roots, an 8 ft. pepper tree that had volunteered itself in the yard and trimmed everything back. We have a completely different look to the yard! Bill is very knowledgeable about all the plants we had and gave us sound advice about what we could do with the spaces that were created after the enormous trim and clear-out work his crew had completed. We were pleased with his easy manner and efficiency. As we get more settled into our new home we will definately be calling Bill back for more work.!

    Bill Hunt has been taking care of my yard for several months now and I couldn't be more pleased. I checked out several services prior to selecting Bill. My yard was a mess, what wasn't dead was weeds. We walked the entire property and he made recommendation and we agreed on a fair price. I explained that my days to water my yard was Thursdays and Sundays and would like the yard done on Wednesday. He has never missed a day and takes care of my yard as if it were his own. My yard has never looked better, it even competes with the the retired guy next door!
  • Gail C. Jun 7, 2013
    We recently bought a house in Cape Coral that was in need of a complete landscape overhaul. We talked with Bill Hunt and after a couple of meetings we decided on the work he would do. Bill took care of removing some trees, removing all the old landscape stone, putting in an island with curbing, planting some palm trees, installing weed barrier and covering it all with mulch. Bill and his crew were a pleasure to work with. His costs were competitive and his work was professional. One thing that was improtant to me was he kept all his appointments. He and his crew showed up when they said they would and finished the job on schedule. I would not hesitate to recommend Willian Hunt's Lawn & Landscape.
  • Richard W. Apr 27, 2013
    Bill does mowing, trimming, etc of my residential lawn and also maintains the pool. He has eliminated most weeds and the grass is much thicker. In addition, he designed an extensive landscaping plan for our yard. His knowledge of Florida plants was very helpful as we had relocated from the midwest. The execution of the plan demonstrated excellent work done in timely manner. He is customer oriented and easy to communicate with. Bill can be counted on to complete work he starts, show up for appointments and return phone calls for any questions.
  • Karen P. Apr 24, 2013
    Bill has been our "lawn man" since September when he was the only lawn person I could find that would pull the weeds in our flower beds. They had taken over! He did an awesome job so now he is our permanent lawn and landscape person. He has done many jobs for us, such as trimming and removing palms and planting new bushes along with mowing and trimming.. He always does a wonderful job. We are so happy that we found him! Karen , Cape Coral, Fl

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Meet and greet. Find out what they are looking for and pre qualifying a budget and trying to come up wih a plan that suits their needs. I try to work with people any way I can. Budget, timelines etc. Communication is key. If I cant be of help I try and let them know right up front.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
It is hard to have standard pricing as everyones needs are different. pricing is also effected by costs of materials which generally are always going up not down.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
As a young boy I was basically forced to help my father in his plumbing and heating business, which was also coupled with a lot of construction. Like it or not I learned a lot of things that kids my own age had no clue about Including work ethics and knowing the value of a dollar. As it turned out the plumping background came in handy as I took a job in college for a landscaper back in 1987. He asked me if I knew anything about sprinkler systems and the rest is history, I helped him install a sprinkler system and after that I was on my own. The thing I like more about landscaping over the plumbing is the beautiful things I get to create with my own imagination and then making it a reality.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I offer full scale property maintenance, irrigation, service repair and installation. tree and shrub trimming as well as removal. full service landscape design and installation. Concrete curbing, paving stone patios, decorative stone, mulch and much more. Planting of trees small and large, shrubbery, flowers, perrennials. Complete renovation of landscape including tear out of old plants, mulch or stone beds adding curbing, plants, new weed barrier fabric. Revamp irrigation system adding additional heads or drip lines if needed. tear out existing sod and re installing new sod via floratam, zoysia, bahia or whatever the need per application
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
I find in this economy that people base their sole decision to hire a contractor strictly on cost. Any one can go to the city hall and pay for an occupational licence, buy a trailer, buy a mower and some other misc. tools and call themselves a landscape provider. Further more some don't even bother to aquire the licence they just go to work lowballing the guy trying to do things the right way. Consequently you are not going to find a leagal, qualified contractor who takes pride in his work and does what he says he's going to do for the cheepest price. Furthermore I always beleive you should get it in writing it assures you are getting what you are paying for and garentees no hard feelings. Don't be afraid to ask for references and check them. Don't be afraid to tell a contractor if your not happy with something ( hey your paying for it) and don't be afraid to reward a contractor for a job well done.
