I started this business in 2004 when the job market was down. I was working in the rv industry at the time and the hrs were short. I have since then moved on to a better job with lanz Cabinets and continue to do landscaping on weekends.

    Brian did a great job with our lawn. He missed our first time but he called immediately, explained his situation and apologized for it. Showed up on time and went straight to work mowing and edging the lawn. Really great work.

    Brian did okay as far as the labor he sign on for. He was directed to two different addresses to mow, haul away debris. He did do a good job at address #1 in Eugene. At the address in Santa Clara he did not complete the instructions/job I hired him to do. I paid him for both jobs plus a tip. He did not complete the job at location #2 because he left before he finished the job, saying he'd be back the following day to complete the job but never returned. He did call and say that his other job had called him and he had to return to that job but said he'd stop by the following work to finish the job; he never showed up and I had to hire someone else to complete the job.

    Really impressed with Brian's communication and ability to make a big impact on a job even in a short amount of time!

  • 5/5 stars April 13, 2015

    Did a great job tending to our very neglected lawn! He was friendly, a hard worker, and completed the job in a good time. Happy with our experience!

  • 5/5 stars March 3, 2015

    Brian built a heck of a strong fence in three days! He was affordable and really invested in the quality of his work. At one point he was unhappy with the strength of a post so he redid it and knocked of the time from the total bill. It was a pleasure to work with such an honest straightforward handyman. As I recently purchased a fixer-upper I will definitely be calling him again.

    Brian is wonderful! He came to remove two very disgusting sofas from my back yard. (The chicken coop exploded in the ice storm, and the chickens found themselves a new place to roost...)

    Brian and his son were timely and performed the work as needed. He is a nice person to work with.

  • 5/5 stars June 13, 2011

    I've had Brian do a couple days worth of work around my house, miscellaneous yard cleanup work and whatnot. He's been dependable, honest, and polite. Generally a pleasure to have around. Assuming I end up deciding to take on my bigger projects later in the summer (repainting the house and building a garden shed), I plan on asking Brian to help me out with them as well. Based on what I've seen, I would recommend him without hesitation!
