I generally do not take the time to review a company unless my experience is exceptionally poor or unless it was outstanding, Mike falls into the latter. He checks all of the boxes with respect to quality, etc. Where he most distinguished himself amongst the other options is his professionalism. Mike updated me with photos of the property throughout the entire process. He was astute (and not rushed) enough to find, collect, and inform me of a small piece of my deck trim that dislodged itself, rather than ignoring it and taking it away with the rest of the leaves. Not to mention he was able to get started right away and was extremely easy to communicate with. If you’re on the fence about utilizing lawncare services from Mike definitely don’t hesitate was worth every cent. Photos below are updates he sent of his work in my backyard.

Chris installed a fence for us in our backyard. We couldn't be more pleased. The price was right, quality work was done, and he updated us frequently on the status of the work and made sure we were happy with everything prior to work being completed. We are extremely happy with the work done. Will be calling him to take care of trees in our backyard as well!

Thank you to Thumbtack for helping me find this amazing company. His prices are very reasonable, he is very reliable, very easy communication and notification after he services the property. He even goes above and beyond, I have furniture in my backyard and he always moves to make sure that he cuts under it. Highly Recommend!

Heritage was wonderful! Jeff and his team were prompt, professional, and did amazing work. They stayed on budget and were helpful by giving us great ideas for our project. Most importantly, our new backyard patio looks amazing - we get so many compliments on it and we couldn't love it more. We would 100 percent recommend Heritage to anyone looking for landscaping or hardscaping services!

Five years ago, we hired Moore Landscaping to lay a patio in our backyard. It turned out beautifully, made with brick pavers in a herringbone pattern. It still looks like new. The workmanship was precise and neat. The job was accomplished on time and on budget. We have since used them for smaller scale gardening projects. We would highly recommend Moore Landscaping.

First of all, please learn how to cut trees. Just because you have a truck and a grinder and a bunch of chainsaws doesn't make you a tree expert. First off, I requested a certificate of insurance and after the job was stopped due to an unfortunate accident (I will explain)I asked them for their insurance and they informed me they didn't have it. Luckily no one was hurt, but according to people that I have talked to and have seen pictures and videos of the event, I was very lucky. They came in and began by cutting one of the largest trees (they were hired to cut 5 in total). That big one was about 40 feet from our house and they cut it by first cutting a wedge in the front and them cutting behind the wedge. It fell without incident. The second was pretty much the same, but it did come closer to our house. I just thought "wow these guys know what they are doing." The third one was close to our house so they tied a rope to the top of the tree, hoping to pull it in the direction they wanted it to fall using their truck to pull it with the ropes since it was leaning toward our house. When they started cutting it, using the same wedge method and not cutting from the top and lowering pieces, I was looking on in wonder. I was amazed that they knew what they were doing. This wonderment turned to shock when I saw the tree falling in the direction of our neighbor's house. It destroyed his shed and fence. Luckily their was no one outside and that it did not drop in any other direction because it would have destroyed either house. Mind you, if it would have fallen a few degrees to one side of the other it probably would not have mattered. But their method had it falling a full 90 degrees off their intended drop and caused extensive property damage. I would not use these people to cut my grass, let alone a tree on your property. They lied about their insurance coverage (which is illegal) and they could have caused so much more damage due to their inexperience and poor workmanship. Don't use these guys.

I am not one to write a review unless I feel it is well deserved but Productive Construction Services LLC has exceeded my expectations! Tony was able to salvage my backyard project that was ruined from a previous contractor. Tony was upfront and honest with me throughout the whole phase of the project from offering recommendations on how to give me a finished product but and looking to ways to be cost efficient. I would highly recommend using PCS on any and all future projects from home renovations to landscaping needs. It's a relief knowing I can count on and trust Tony and PCS to get the job done right the first time!

Trevor had the best value of all the landscapers we contacted. We had a tough backyard job that Trevor handled nicely. We are installing a new fence and wanted to extend it to the limits of our property line. However, there was a ton of brush, dead stumps, vegetation, stones, etc., making it impossible for installation. Trevor was able to thoroughly clear out the back yard area despite multiple obstacles. It now looks really good and ready for fence installation. We appreciated that he could accommodate our requests. He was patient and professional. We'll definitely be using his services again for future projects. Thanks to his hard work, we'll be able to expand our fenced property by nearly 1000 sq ft.

I needed some landscaping work. I had a leaky backyard pond that needed to be removed and the hole needed to be backfilled. After that, topsoil and grass seed were needed to return the area to an acceptable state. Mr. Moore and his team completed the job in less than a day and I am satisfied with the results. I would highly recommend Garry More to anyone who needs this type of work. His conduct was professional and he was completely responsive to my requests in a timely manner. I will contact him again if I ever need yard work of any kind.

I had a big tree in the front trimmed, an overgrown area cleaned out, and several shrubs removed in my backyard. Cambria services did a fantastic job!! I hardly ever leave reviews but I was so impressed with the services I received today that I just had recommend them. From the initial visit to the end of the job, they were easy to work with and I was given top notch customer service. They are also very reasonable! I was given much higher quotes by 2 other landscapers. I will definitely be using Charles and Cambria services for all future landscaping.

Cassello provided timely, very high quality work at a very good cost. Not only did they do a great job removing a very tall tree, numerous stumps, and alot of yard debris from my property, they did an excellent job cleaning up the grounds afterwards. Thanks to them my backyard looks much better and is much safer for my son to play in. Thank you!!!

We needed a curb repaired. Having absolutely zero knowledge of concrete made this the opposite of a DIY for us. We contacted multiple professionals, many of which gave us outrageously high estimates (think $2500-4000 for an 8 ft standard curb). Many more wouldn't even consider the project because 8 ft isn't a big enough job for them. Reyburn-Lightner not only considered it, but gave us a reasonable estimate. Professional, accessible, and dealing with them didn't make me want to tear my hair out. The gentlemen who actually did the work were the owner of the company and two assistants. All punctual (they said they'd arrive between 2-3pm and were there at 2:03 by my kitchen clock), they are a smaller operation, but you would never know three men were in my front yard fixing a curb. Not loud, no rude or course language, and all three went above and beyond what would be required to fix a curb. They even wheeled the extra dirt into my backyard for me, and leveled it out and made it look nice. The best part of working with these folks was that they could get the job done for a fair price QUICKLY. We needed the curb fixed before we could move, and with city regulations and other bureaucratic nonsense, they were more then flexible in working with us. Seriously, hire these folks. You won't regret it.
