Steven has worked for us for about a year. I think very highly of him. He is careful and thorough. He cleans up after himself. He takes good care of his/our tools. He communicates well. He always shows up when he says he will. He has good initiative: he sees what needs doing, checks in with us to make sure we agree, then just takes care of it. He has done all kinds of yard work for us: cutting and reseeding the lawn, weeding, planting (including helping choose what to plant), building the compost pile, raking, tree-trimming, setting brick around garden beds, general clean-up, etc. I recommend Steven very highly.
