On April 5, 2017, I reached out on Thumbtack to find a landscaper for our property. We had moved into a new home in January, and just had the standard “builder” type landscaping which we did not like. Within minutes of posting I was contacted by City Pro Services Ltd and we soon began chatting back and forth. City Pro Services is a family-owned business, with the entire family taking part in getting the job done. Andy and Julie set up a time to come and look at our property to see what we had, listened to what we saw as our vision, and made numerous recommendations as to what could work for us. As we worked out a plan they came and met with us a second time to offer more suggestions, and explained how everything would be done. Andy made sure that the plants we wanted would be appropriate for the areas we were going to landscape (sun vs. shade plants). By mid-May we finally settled on a workable plan along with pricing. These are some of the things they did for us: 1) Installation of new shrubs and perennials in front bed. 2) Installation of topsoil, river rocks, and mulch in front bed areas with 25-year weed barrier fabric. 3) New beds by the mailbox area and on other side of driveway, with topsoil, and river rocks splashing in some small perennials to accent. 4) Created a flower bed down the side of the house with hydrangeas, topsoil, and mulch. 5) Planted 4 trees. 6) Created a flower bed in back yard corner with some perennials. 7) Transplant existing plants from the front yard bed to the shed area. 8) Installed topsoil around shed for plants. 9) Installed mulch around shed areas. 10) Installed annuals in all beds on the entire property. 11) Installed river rock and ornamental grass around the outside air-conditioning unit. 12) Installed river rock drainage for the downspouts instead of concrete drains. 13) Installed small river rock for path going from back patio to shed entrance – included river rock and 25 year week barrier fabric. 14) Prepped lot for sod by tilling, cutting, and grading, as well as installing 28 yards of top soil. 15) We purchased sod for side yard areas, and they provided labor for installation. Also 25lbs of starter fertilizer for pre-sodding. It did take them a while to get us on the schedule, but that was only due to the weather and the fact that they had multiple other jobs going on. Once they started the job they often came in full-force with everyone in the family working hard to get the job done. I will tell you that with the bad soil that we have (very hard clay), they often had to work extra hard to accomplished with would have otherwise been fairly simple. Digging the holes for the 4 trees they planted was not an easy task! Because of our bad soil, Andy did everything he could to set us up for success with everything he planted. He created raised beds with prime topsoil, and used weed barrier fabric to help keep the weeds down. When we purchased our new home, we purchased the empty lot next to us which had not been developed. We had them prep and lay the sod on that lot. Again, with the soil being so bad, and full of rocks, Andy recommended that they prep the lot and cover it with quality top soil prior to laying the sod. It was a lot of hard work for them, but, again, they wanted to make sure that we were set up for success. It was a very large area, but they did a great job and it made everything look amazing. Our main requests upon first discussion, was telling them that we loved color and wanted low maintenance. Not only did City Pro Services “meet” our desires, but they “far exceeded” our expectations. Andy was responsive to our every need, was willing to make changes or additions without question, and made sure to educate us along the way as to what needed to be done to make sure that we are able to easily maintain everything they had done. One thing that I really appreciated about Andy, was that he would personally pick out the very best plants that he could. This was especially evident with the hydrangeas that he selected for the side of the house. They are “show stoppers” to be sure! Would I hire them again? You bet I would!! I’m sure that I will be calling them throughout the coming years to just do some maintenance and cleanup of whatever needs to be done for the next season. They are a hard-working family business, who aim to please, and are willing to work hard to get the job done. D. Scott
These are top notch professionals. They arrived when expected, did a beautiful job pruning my nearly 100 year old tree and cleaned up impeccably .. can't say enough good things about them!
When another lawn mowing service dropped the ball, J.T.D. was here in less than 24 hours to save our property from being swallowed whole by overgrown grass and weeds. We look forward to our weekly service, and will be thrilled to have them handle our weeding and mulching. Glad we reached out!
Billy removed two large trees and 5 large shrubs plus trimming two other large trees. He and his crew did an outstanding job. Their cleanup was thorough. I highly recommend Billy for tree work.
I hired Eric Woodland and Woodlands Tree Care LLC from out of state for a property I owned in Dayton that was to be sold. The job was massive, as the property had been closed for a few years and the trees and shrubs had turned into a jungle. Literally. Eric visited the property and offered an extremely reasonable price for the job I had in mind. Throughout the entire process, Eric was prompt, responsive, and came up with excellent suggestions. He made working with him very easy, and he and his men not only did an outstanding job, they went the extra mile and cleaned up the yard in ways they were not specifically contracted for, but which helped me out immensely. Much of the work was for outright removal of huge saplings, overgrown bushes, etc. What impressed me the most upon talking with Eric at the start, was his concern for keeping the characer of the house and having it look nice for "curb appeal", since this is a property that was to be sold. He and his men did an incredible job at making the yard enhance the house, to the point of neighbors coming out and complimenting them on the job they were doing. I would hire him again in a heartbeat. Frankly, if I could give him 10 stars, I would, for he far exceeded our expectations and did a beautiful, highly professional job. I can't thank him enough for everything that he did, especially as being out of state and not being able to be there turned out to never be an issue. I recommend him highly, and believe he and his company stand out compared to others in his field. He is highly ethical and a man you can trust. Completely recommended!!!
Joe and Andrew did a wonderful job trimming our bushes, cleaning up our flower beds and laying our mulch. Our property looks beautiful thanks to them! We have asked them to give us estimates for our back yard too!
Brian and Amber did a great job with tree removal. Everything done and cleaned up as promised
I would highly recommend GLC Tree Service for tree pruning & removal. They did an excellent job clearing trees from house & power line. The clean-up & stacking of firewood was great as well.
Great crew! They communicated throughout the job to discuss additional trimming that became apparent once they got started. They did an excellent job of cleaning when done, and worked quickly. Our large oak had never been pruned and the job turned out to be much larger than anticipated. They dug in and got it done for the agreed price and did a very thorough job. Excellent value... Highly recommend.
Due to the crazy Cincinnati weather, we had to delay the initial arrangement. But, Cecil and his company was over the next day, first thing in the morning, and finished the job just as I wanted by lunch time. They removed 3 trees and all the bushes that were covering ceter of my backyard, regraded the area, and cleaned up afterward. Very professional yet friendly! Totally recommend them.
Jeremy reshaped and pruned a tall pin oak in my front yard. It looks great. He cleaned up afterwards too. There was some disease in the tree. He took pictures of the problem spots to show me and gave me some advice on how to deal with it.
