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
Removed tree branches,landscape timbers, railroad ties, and misc trash. Justin was very nice and did a great job. He did not mess around and was fast at getting the job done.
Jered did a great job demolishing and burying our old concrete swimming pool. His price was very reasonable and he completed the job in less than a week. He kept me informed of his schedule. He also did a professional job grading the area, planting grass seed and laying straw mats. I was impressed with the way he was able to judge the amount of fill dirt needed to complete the job. During his initial assessment, he figured that we would not need extra dirt hauled in. He was right on! Jered is a very personable young man, easy to talk with and answered all of my questions. I would not hesitate to hire him again or recommend him to others.
I had sod placed. Beautiful job. You hear many stories about contractors etc, not showing up at a schedule time not with this company. Alex was on time for the estimate and when there was a delay in laying the sod due to rain I was notified. Would definitely recommend Lawns by Design.
Merriman Tree 'n Stump is hands down the best tree care company in Cincinnati. We have used them for tree service and landscaping and they never disappoint. They are affordable, professional, knowledgable and always deliver on time. We will not use anyone else in the future. I highly recommend using them.
Mike and Ronnie did a great job landscaping around our new pool. We would definitely use Sticks & Stones for future landscaping needs! Highly recommend.
Brent and his son did a fantastic job correcting the mess left by Watson's installation contractor. My yard now looks like a yard instead of endless mounds of dirt scattered. These guys are awesome!! If I ever need any landscaping done, these are the people I will call. Thanks again Brent!!!
A little back story- I hired a general contractor that quit because it was "so complicated" & left my patio an absolute mess. I spent weeks getting new quotes & searching for a new contractor after that disaster. Most contractors were hesitant to take this on after seeing the way the old contractor left the patio. Dave was the only contractor that took the time to make sure every single detail was covered & what we wanted. He spent a good amount of time with us mapping out exactly what he was going to do. He also brought up several good points & ideas we hadn't considered before. Dave & his team constructed a PERFECT deck with a covered pergola. Dave went above and beyond our expectations! The team arrived on time each day & finished the project in just a few short days. Dave did exactly what he said he was going to do at a very reasonable price. The space is flawless! We are in love with our new outdoor oasis and will enjoy it for all four seasons! I would 100% recommend this company.
Great guy great job would recommend his services to anyone
