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
The best experience I have ever had. His lead time to start the job was on point. Quality work. He even double checked his grading to make sure everything was done right. I had 6 other companies/people come out to give ideas and quote the job. His idea and ability to see the job before he started was amazing. I would definitely recommend him for any project!
Ian did a new hardwood floor for us in just one room of our house. He explained the project well and helped us keep the costs down, showed up exactly when he said he would and did the job in a timely way! He even advised us on the parts we planned to do ourselves (sanding and finishing) Much appreciated as we weren't sure what to expect and lots of contractors seem to show up late or not at all...we would highly recommend him.
Mike and Shannon are wonderful people! Extremely knowledgeable and catered to our every lawn/landscaping needs. We gave them a HUGE job, they tackled it in a timely manner and treated the job as if our yard was their own. Couldn't be more pleased with the results...simply gorgeous! Even after the major job was completed they continued with their outstanding above and beyond service...upkeep, watering, lawn care (fertilizing, etc.) and of course educating us! :) We will Highly recommend them to any and everyone....in a heartbeat!
Hi Derrick and his co-worker did a great job on our spring landscape update last year. They used a chocolate color mulch that looked great. We hope to schedule him again soon! Chris and Dawn
Just a small job--hauling some honeysuckle--but it was much-needed! Morgan replied to my query immediately, was in close contact about the job, and had it completed within 24 hours of my first contact. Price was fair, service was quick and professional, and most importantly, the job is done. Highly recommended.
Fast response, good communication, reasonable pricing and quality service. Will use again and recommend to others.
SCS provides quality workmanship at a great price. They get job done in a timely manner. The CREW was great very polite hard working and Marvin made sure all my concerns were answered. They are awesome! Great company
I've used Chris Hollon Construction twice now and can't say enough good things. Extremely professional, and very skilled. They are great at working with your time tables and budget. I own a historic home and they repaired a large amount of cosmetic ice/water damage to my kitchen and completely rebuilt my roof and did a fantastic job of both. I also especially appreciate (and my pets do too) how thorough of job they did cleaning up after themselves, never found anything out of place after a job.
Roberto Proctor did a small job involving drywall installation and paint. He performed the job as agreed and at a good price. Roberto is easy to work with and accomodating. I do not hesitate to give Roberto high overall marks and would hire him again.
Came on very short notice & did a great job mowing, edging, weeding flower beds & trimming shrubs.
