Juan and his crew were great. I contacted them on a Saturday afternoon for a quote and they stopped by later that same afternoon. Juan was super knowledgeable about our project. And for those of you who don't know a lot about landscaping and gardening he's your man. He had a lot of solid information about where to put plants, where not to put plants, how to water the sod... etc. No question was considered stupid. In other words, he did not condescend to me, which I found refreshing. Nor did he try to hike up the price. His prices were super competitive with other bids we received. He was there when he said he'd be there and the project was completed in a very short time. His crew was very patient and polite while we were deciding where to put the sod line and also when asked to move some of the plants. They also cleaned up before they left. He's a good man to know when it comes to landscaping!

Juan was excellent. He offered reasonable prices for high quality work and gave really good advice on what would work well for our backyard area. He also kept in touch and offered advice on my vegetable garden and reminded me to water the plants when it was really hot outside :-)

My garden had been completely neglected and overgrown due to illness. I need help. I found Julio's Services on Thumbtack and called. Domingo came out and looked at the yard and gave me a fair price for the work. His workers came the next day and got everything done in about 3 hours. Domingo came and helped finish up. I am so thrilled with their work and the way my yard looks. They even trimmed the bushes in the front yard which was not part of the job. I am very happy and plan on hiring them again to get the front yard back in shape after the dirt over the replacement of my sewer main settles. I highly recommend Julio's lawn service to anyone looking for lawn and garden help.

Julio's was Excellent! On-time, professional, reasonable. Cleaned up the garden very nicely. I would recommend them to all. Especially for women. I have found one too many men who are ill behaved. When you need help with your home you should never have to put up with disgusting behavior from those who are seeking to work around your home. Julio's was professional. Very Appreciated.🌞

Kyle at Whitetail Landscapes and his crew were a pleasure to work with. We had them landscape an area 4' by 42' by clearing out the existing grass and planting and mulching 18 flowering shrubs. They paid careful attention to detail and assisted us in deciding how we wanted the shrubs to be placed to maximize the overall esthetic of the area. They went over and above by also mulching an adjoining area to tie it all in. I honestly don't feel we would have gotten any better work from a landscape architect who would have charged a lot more. We have also contracted Kyle to extend our existing patio from10'x10' to 17'x10' and look forward to that project as well.

We are so happy with the landscaping project Kyle and his crew did off our patio! They had to did all the terrible clay out and put in a drainage system they then put in compost and the plants he chose look so great! Thank you so much for the wonderful garden! They worked so hard and cleaned up the site like nothing ever happened he even power washed our sidewalk! Thx so much we will definitely use whitetail again and tell all our friends!

Verified review

Contracted Whitetail Landscapes to dethatch and aerate my front and back yards. Kyle was responsive and provided a reasonable quote, kept in contact prior to the day of work, and he and his crew were friendly, professional, informative and completed the job earlier than expected. I would recommend Whitetail Landscapes to friends, and will likely use them for future landscaping needs.

A meticulous job. Lawn of the Land discovered small problems with my lawn that I had missed. Of course, small problems become big problems unless they are tended to. The two workers were experienced and knowledgeable, helping me to set up a weed killer whose instruction manual was quite deficient. I plan to hire this firm for snow plowing.

DJ and Katie F.

Verified review

Discussed a date and time for services to be provided, and Lawn of the Land was a no show/ no call. Despite plenty of messaging back and forth to set up the appointment, when it came time for them to do what they advertise, they weren’t reliable. Can’t give zero stars, otherwise I would, since they did zero work.

Linda's team was hired to spread topsoil in some very large garden beds and rim them with stones. They also removed several overgrown bushes. They spread well over 20 yards of dirt and several truckloads of stones and did a fantastic job. They were quick, and very neat with their work when finished you could not even see they had been there other than the beautiful jobs they did cutting in, spreading dirt and rimming my beds with stone.

Jimmy's workers were consummate professionals: quick, picked up and recycled every single thing they removed, and explained everything that needed to be explained to my husband. 100% satisfaction. Afterward, my husband and stood there and pondered how long it would have taken us to do this work. It was money well spent. The job included trimming bushes and shrubs, pulling out a dead bush, removing weeds in the garden area, and cutting down dead perennials. Then they spread mulch. It looks beautiful!

Jimmy has been out to our house twice now to mow the lawn. I'm quite happy with the results and am thinking of using Jimmy and his team for larger landscaping projects. Overall Jimmy is easy to work with and I continue to use his services.

I worked with Rodolfo. He came on time for the quote. We agreed to a fare price for the work. He and his crew arrived on time the day of service and did an excellent job. My services involved fall clean up which consisted of a gutter clean, leaf and garden bed cleanup, mow and edging of lawn.

I can't say enough good things about Rebecca and her "team". From the beginning, she was very responsive here on Thumbtack and coming out to give me an estimate. She and her husband left my home after discussing our project needs and returned an hour later to hand deliver a printed, itemized summary and quote. A week later, their hands were in the dirt removing at least 50 old hostas, old perennials, pruning hedges, weeding, mulching, etc. Her team consisted of her husband, her father and her daughter---a true family affair. It was so sweet to watch them work together. They are very patient and meticulous people. They arrived yesterday at 11am, and stayed until almost 6pm. It was 85 degrees so they took their time, which was a very smart thing to do in the heat. And the front of our house is in direct sunlight. Honestly, we can not be happier with the finished product and how amazing they were to work with. I would hire them 100x over.

Renald was very responsive to requests. He outlined the time frame and the amount of work it would take To mow my lawn and city lot and barring rain or other circumstances completed the tasks on time. I also liked the fact that he was willing to pull weeds and wild onions. There was an additional cost, but we'll worth it. So far I am very satisfied with his lawn service. I am going to continue on through the fall and winter for leaves and snow removal.

Excellent communication regarding work to be performed. Work performed was of very high quality. Very satisfied. You can certainly pay much less for landscaping services, but in my experience you definitely get what you pay for - cheapest price = lowest quality work. Paul treats his customers with personalized attention to their landscaping needs.

Paul Nelson, owner of Chicago Lawnscapes, wants to give you the best lawn possible. He was accommodating about working out a mowing schedule. The lawn was mowed on time, though shorter than we usually mow our lawn. It was nicely trimmed along the edges.

We hired Becky Doughty to cut our corner lot lawn and they did a great job! They arrived on time, cut the grass to our satisfaction and blew all excess on the sidewalk. Also, used the trimmer to edge the areas which also looked very nice. We really appreciate their service and the fact they came out on a Saturday!
