    Frank Porter and Almost PERFECT Landscaping have been working with us in Englewood, Nj for the past nine years. In addition to weekly lawn and garden maintenance, Frank has personally dealt with both my husband and I in picking out and installing all trees and bushes, etc. throughout our property. Our experience has generally been very good, the quality is top notch, and we trust both Frank and his employees implicitly. The important thing to note, we think, is that whenever there has been any questions about anything to do with our property, Frank always responds quickly, and we have always been able to deal with him honestly and openly. Trust us, after nine years, we think that's pretty great. Also, our yard looks lovely!

    Great quality work. Great service. Great price. Plus, Frank knows what the landscape needs better than I do.

    Last year, I learned that I needed a hip replacement. There was no way I was going to be able to clear the snow off my sidewalk, driveway, or cars. I contracted with Almost Perfect Landscaping for this work. They were here after every snow storm; and we had many this year. I spoke with the crew once to make sure I was able to move about the property after each storm. They understood and we got the job done.

    Frank Porter does my landscaping all year and snow cleaning in winter. He employs a group of nice people who know their customers. I especially value their promptness i winter to come and clean the driveway and entrances. The landscaping work is done on time and properly. If there is one thing that could be improved it is the price he charges! Nevertheless I can only highly recommend Frank and hi service!

    Arthur the prices we charge are right in line for the company we are. You can hire a mow and blow company for a lower costs, but I think you like the quality of work we provide and the service we deliver.

    I have been doing business with Frank Porter and Almost Perfect Landscaping for over 20 years. Frank is very talented and passionate about his business and the work he and his crew perform. From his office personnel to his crew out in the field, they are knowledgeable about the work they perform and treat their customers with the utmost respect. From start to finish Frank is available to discuss the project, answer your questions and make helpful suggestions. He is a stand-up guy who tells it like it is and will get you the results you want.

    Frank was so quick to contact me and was quick with a professional quote too. He showed enthusiasm about his job and everything was just perfect for me. His crew is hard working and respectful. I highly recommend him for someone looking for a serious business to be done.

    My lawn, front & back, was in very bad shape. Grass was steadily being replaced by huge patches of dirt. The lawn company I had been using tried several things, only to have the problem get worse. I called Frank at Almost Perfect and he went to my home to examine the lawn. He saw how bad it was, but told me what could be done to fix it. He wrote up a proposal for yearly maintenance, and though it was more than the company I had been using, that company was also ruining my property. So I signed with Frank. His guys made one very thorough visit and I don’t know what they put down, but I already have grass growing where there had been none for most of the year. Can’t wait to see it next Spring/Summer. I totally recommend Frank and Almost Perfect Landscaping!

    Debbie Thank you for the review. I is a pleasure working for you and I enjoy making your property beautiful.

    Frank Porter and the team at Almost Perfect are the best landscapers around. Frank provides one on one attention and is available at all times. He plans our property both long and short term. I've been through quite a few landscapers over the years who provide great service at the beginning and then forget about you over the years. Frank has always treated us like we are his only customer. He cares about making our property look beautiful and works with us all year long. He understands finances and accounting as well. I can't say enough amazing things about Frank and his crew.

    Kristy our 15 years together has enabled me to improve your landscape a little bit each year. Now you have something that you can be proud of.

Q&A

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Our system is very complicated. LABOR + MATERIAL + OVERHEAD RECOVERY
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Are you kidding. It never stops.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
Well, I don't like wearing suites. Put me in an office all day and I will be climbing the walls. I got out of college bought a walk behind lawn mower and never looked back and that was over 30 years ago.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Exquisite plantings, retaining walls, patios, and overall Landscape planning.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
Nothing really stands out. I am proud of all my work. Anything from planting a lawn to complete renovation. I treat all customers the same regardless of the size of the project.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Call 3 people and the person you feel most comfortable with, hire them. Did they listen to your needs? Are they willing to negotiate.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Don't hire the cheapest guy on the block. Do your homework. Hire the company that is going to be there even when something goes wrong.
