"Larry worked on the landscaping for our office in the fall and does general maintenance for us. The landscaping in the front of our building was hideous. There were overgrown bushes that were eyesores and created safety issues for staff, tree branches hitting the tops of cars as we drove by, weeds that were out of control, ivy that was out of control, etc. As far as the landscaping work goes, Larry took the time to look things over and develop a plan of how to make our property look more presentable. He then started taking bushes out to make it safer for staff to be here after hours and to make it more appealing to the eye, trimming branches, killing weeds, trimming back and weeding the ivy, pulling all weeds out of a rock garden that we didn't even know that we had, trimming remaining bushes, etc. Larry cleaned up several flower beds and planted nearly 1000 flower bulbs for us and placed mulch over the flower beds. We cannot wait for Spring to come so that we can see the flowers popping up!
Larry is always on time when there is work to be done. He always makes sure that things are done professionally. He would take a step back and look at his work when he finished. If he saw something he didn't like or could be made to look better, he would work on it until it was the way he wanted it. He cares about his work and that translates into the great job that he does. You can't ask for anything better than that."
