    Oscar is friendly, prompt, reliable and offers a great price. The yard looks great. Our sprinkler valve did not get installed, but that was due to a corroded existing pipe that needed replacement, and was not the result of Oscar's work. I plan to hire him again.

    I hired Affordable Lawncare and Landscaping to trim 3 trees and 3 ornamental grasses. Oscar and his co-worker finished the job quickly and for a reasonable price. All of the clippings were cleaned up and the trees and grasses look fabulous. We are very pleased with the level of service, and highly recommend these guys!

    I needed a complete reboot on my front and back yard. It was overgrown with crabgrass and weeds, and just looked awful. Oscar responded immediately and we had an estimate set up that weekend. He was very flexible with timing (I work all day during the week) and had no problem seeing me on a Saturday. I asked for a few estimates, one for just clean-up, and another to lay weed fabric and colored gravel. The estimates were awesome and we went ahead on it. For the amount of work done, I definitely got the better deal! The work was outstanding. We got the gravel done, and just today I called him back to put in a tree and run some sprinkler lines. He was on time, fast, efficient, and he clearly knows what he's doing. I have already referred him to friends and family, and I'm sure I'll be calling him for more stuff!

  • Scott W. Mar 18, 2015
    Oscar was an excellent landscaper. I called him in late August, 2014 because I'd just bought a property overgrown with weeds. He came out to my property two days later, gave me an excellent price on weed removal (literally less than half of his next closes competitor), and the weeds were gone by the weekend. I will be using him for all my future lawn care needs.

    The minute I made contact with Oscar I knew we had found the skilled Lawn Care provider for all of our needs; he was in touch by phone constantly to make sure that we knew he was going to be on time; he listened to the description of my lawn weed problem, grass issues, plant issues, sprinkler system issues and general lawn care needs for the entire front and back yard. He was professional at every step and took detailed notes as we talked, and then provided recommendations for solving my specific issues; in fact he was so lucid in his proposal for fixing my immediate lawn care issues that I asked him to provide bids on a number of other aspects to include sprinkler system repairs, faucet repairs, lawn aeration, re-seeding, weekly mowing, and gravel replacement/landscaping. He discussed the level of effort to do each aspect of work I was asking about as well as provided sound cost estimates for the many areas to be worked. Oscar had quoted a price for his first visit and the work to be done, and at the end of the day which included exceptional work by him and his crew that was the price I paid; even with extensive additional effort expended to repair a problematic water faucet (effort I considered clearly above and beyond)! Oscar and his team worked professionally, thoroughly, and were courteous at all times. My wife and I were so impressed with both the professional attitude of Oscar and skilled work performed by him and his crew we have decided to take him on as our lawn care provider full time. I have to say after living in my home for twelve years and hearing one excuse after another from the so-called "Name Brand" lawn care professionals as to why they could not address my lawn concerns outside of their narrowly focused and limited area of service it was refreshing to talk to a lawn care provider who was positive and responsive to every aspect of my lawn care and landscaping needs. I can say with a great deal of satisfaction Oscar and his team never said that they could not do any aspect of lawn care and landscaping that I brought up in our discussion. Respectfully, Donald A.

    I contacted Oscar through thumbtack early in the morning and left him a message. He contacted me within a couple of hours and was at my house the same day at noon, right on time. He had an extra worker with him, and they were here for weed maintenance. I have a small back yard that needed major weeding, plus the sides and the front (all zero-scaped...it's a pain to pull weeds out of that). His quote was the best I received on thumbtack. The job took him about 1 1/2 hours, and they never stopped working. And the quote I received was what I paid him. Top service, very good. I will definitely use his services again!

    UNBELIEVABLY AWESOME JOB!! Not a single solitary weed in sight!! De-weeded our front and back yards and sprayed. Took about 5 hours or so to complete. Showed up, performed the work, collected payment, done. Nice and simple. Will definitely be hiring this guy again when these stupids weeds grow back again!

    Oscar and his crews took out two trees, trimmed one tree, and did landscaping for my house. I consider his work one of the best, great price, and had referred him to a few of my friends who also used his service. The job was done on time and great clean up after. I would use his service in the future.

    Oscar returned my call IMMEDIATELY. He came out on SUNDAY to give me a VERY reasonable quote. ( much less than other quotes I had gotten) We scheduled the job ( at MY convenience) and he showed up ON TIME. Oscar and an employee thatched my lawn, aerated, and CLEANED UP EVERY BIT OF DEBRIS. They even cleaned my driveway and the curb area in front of my home. The mess in the street was MY mess from working in my flower beds the day before. Oscar and his employee were respectful and polite. They were careful to not let my dogs loose through the gate. They did not rush the job, but carefully tended to every detail of the job. I have had horrible experiences in the past with other companies. I will not use anyone else ever again. I HIGHLY recommend this company!!!

    I had a yard horribly overridden with crab grass and goat heads. In just a few hours they managed to rid the yard of major problems and also laid a pretty path through the yard with crusher fines. They missed a few small weeds, but for the cost, and the job at hand, I couldn't have asked for more. I will definitely use Affordable Lawncare in the future.

    Oscar and his team at Affordable Lawncare and Landscaping did a wonderful job! The rental house I moved into had been vacant for more than a year, and the people in it prior to that didn't do any landscaping. The yard, especially the back, was a jungle of weeds and overgrown bushes. I moved here from out of state and had little knowledge of what the plants were or how they should be trimmed. When Oscar came to give an on-site quote, he was able to easily identify most of the plants. With this information, and the fantastic job that was done pruning and shaping them, I'm sure I'll be able to keep them looking good. (And if not, I know who to call.) They also did a great job at pulling the weeds - yes, pulling, not cutting them down with a weed whacker. I would highly recommend Oscar and his company, Affordable Lawncare and Landscaping to anyone. I didn't have him do any landscaping, but I'm sure the results would be beautiful. The attention to detail shown by this company is top notch.

    Affordable Lawncare and Landscaping does excellent work. I've had them take on two nasty jobs that were done with great attention to detail and very fair pricing. Both locations are now under contract with Affordable. You can't go wrong using Oscar. His work ethic is undeniable. Highly recommended, you won't find better work for any price and you probably won't find a better price!
