    Gary was really great to work with. The original consultation he listened to what I wanted and came back with a professional layout of the plan. He allowed me to pick and choose what I could fit in my budget. When it was time to get started his crew was friendly and punctual. The part that really makes me happy I went with him is that he returns to check the work himself. Milligan landscapes has been great.

    Sod Installation
    Verified Review
    I called 6 landscaping companies to get a quote on rabbit proofing my backyard and laying some sod. One company never called me back. One company came looked at my yard and told me they only do new installations. One company looked at my yard and then never issued a quote. One company was over twice as expensive than Milligan. And the the last company was less expensive but didn't show up at our scheduled appointment and was hard to chase down. Needless to say we chose Milligan. Gary Milligan showed up at the scheduled time. He issued a quote that day. His employees were courteous and hard workers. Gary came and inspected the work they did. When I critiqued some of the rabbit proofing, Milligan employees came back and fixed it. They really wanted to make sure I was happy. It has been about a month since the work was done and I am happy to report no new rabbits have gotten in and the sod has taken. I am extremely happy with their work. Milligan Landscaping was by far the most professional company I interacted with and I am happy with the results.

    Amazing company to work with! I am very glad we were approached by Gary on Thumbtack for our project. He's very responsive, as is his entire team. They were able to install a beautiful new lawn in our backyard. Along the way, they discovered two broken valves in our backyard, which we had them fix as well. The attentiveness and care they take is amazing! They are all extremely personable, and the way the entire team interacts with one another is like a huge family. We will definitely be hiring them again!

    Sod Installation
    Verified Review
    We were looking for a sod installation contractor who could deliver on service, quality and a competitive fee. Typically, you can find someone who gives you 2 of the 3, but you have to sacrifice something. I'm pleased to say that Milligan Scapes was everything we hoped for and we are extremely pleased with the way our lawn turned out. Gary and his team are ultra-professional. They communicated with us throughout the process and delivered on every promise they made. The quality of our lawn is easy to see, but it was the way the project was managed that I was most impressed by. Even after the lawn was installed we received guidance on caring for it and periodic check-ins. We interviewed 6 installers and Gary was the most professional by far. The price was very fair, especially for the level of quality. If you're thinking about hiring Gary, you may find that Milligan Scapes has a backlog and it may be a while to get your work scheduled. Don't be tempted to go with another bid to get it done quickly. There's a reason for the backlog. It's because Gary and his team have a well-earned reputation for quality. They also guarantee their work IN WRITING which was really important to us. I highly recommend Milligan Scapes and can't say enough good things about them.

    Backyard landscaping
    Gary was responsive to our needs during a 3 week project on our backyard including an irrigation system, sod, grading, retaining wall, and cement sitting area. We made a few changes during the process and it went smoothly. The crew was professional and did a nice job of cleaning up after themselves when they finished. I would use his services again and recommend them to others.

    Great job replacing a concrete driveway apron. Work done right the first time, on time, with much attention to detail and immaculate clean-up. Second time I've done business with Milligan Scapes and won't be my last; just a wonderful company with great employees. Many thanks for a job so very well done.

    If anything, hire them because they're timely, do their work well, treat it like its their own yard and are proud of it. It's your backyard, hire someone you know is going to do it right. Gary Milligan was a pleasure to work with. His team, Eli, Jose, and Carlos were very accommodating. They cleaned up well and walked me through each step. Honestly, New Mexico can thrive from more people like Gary and employees. They were timely, did their job without excuses, and worked to please their customer. Even after some of my plants weren't growing, they replaced them free of charge with already blooming plants. That's customer service.

    I saw Gary in May in anticipation of selling my home next year. We scheduled tree and shrub plantings in my back yard for early June. The work was top notch,on time and completed as stated by Gary. I waited to write my review to see how any issues would be handled. My "issues" were minor, but handled to my satisfaction even faster than I anticipated. I highly recommend Milligan Scapes.
