Out of the 5 names I got from Thumtack, three landscapers showed up to look at the job in which I got two quotes. Only one was in writing and was very descriptive on what I would be getting and for how much. I had a budget to stay close to and A&J did everything they could to keep me as close to that as possible. I had shrubs removed, a few new shrubs planted, new loam brought in with grass seed, and old rock with weed guard removed and replaced with fresh weed guard and rock. The grass is already coming in and the neighbors have noticed how great my yard looks and are also looking for a quote on a job. I plan on doing a few more phases to my project and will definitely use A&J and will recommend them to my family and friends. They also communicate well if an appointment needs to change due to weather, etc. and have always been available for questions. I highly recommend them!
