    James came out when he said he would and was very professional, but his zero-turn mower wouldn't go through the gate to my backyard. Nonetheless, James and his crew cut the front yard and used the trimmer and edger to make the yard look great! James did a great job and I would definitely recommend him!

    James and his crew were awesome! It is rare anymore to find service people or companies that take pride in their work. That certainly is not a problem for James and A+ Landscaping and Pressure Washing. James went above and beyond cleaning areas I had not asked for in his estimate. I plan to have James do a pressure washing every year. I can whole heartily recommend his services with out reservation!

  • Franklin J. May 17, 2015
    I called A+ because I needed a flower bed cleaned out that was just full of ivy and every type of weed imaginable. The flower bed was about 9 railroad ties long (alot of work). With and extended flower bed extending along the fence The guys knocked it out in quickly. Trenched the flower bed( the part not outlined with the railroad ties) which was exactly what we wanted. We can now actually use the flower bed for its intended purpose. The best part was there was some mulch left over James knocked on the door and said you have some mulch left over we can do the front also if you'd like. Only expecting 1 bed to be completed that day it ended up being 2 plus my mailbox area and the crate murtle. The quote was great the work was great. The staff was very knowledgeable. I wanted to do more work like cut down a 12 foot holy bush, but as James explained due to the timing it would be best to wait until the fall to cut that down to our satisfaction. Over all we are very pleased with outcome. We give it the overall A+.

  • Court H. Sep 20, 2014
    On my schedule day he never showed and never got a call. I texted and got a response that they thought they texted me and was sorry they had equipment troubles and would be out the next day. That day came and went. I texted him and he said he was coming at 7 am saturday. I told him that was to early to come and I was having a ton of family over that day so it wouldn't work. I said we would have to reschedule for next week or just skip. He said it would be a extra cost. This was not my fault that he has equipment issues. So i told him I guess I had no choice and to come. But that would be the last cut for the season. He texted me at 10 pm and woke me up to tell me he was canceling services. That is no way to conduct business. Keep up that way and you'll never have a successful business.

    I almost never write reviews but really wanted to in this case. I called A+ yesterday around 1:00pm for power washing after being strung along by another company who didn't show up for 3 days. I talked to James and explained the need to have my house washed ASAP. He came over shortly afterwards to give me a quote. James and his crew came back the same afternoon and did an incredible power washing job! Price was as quoted. Will be having A+ come back for landscaping. James is very courteous, friendly and knowledgeable. Great communication! I was very impressed with the professionalism, quickness getting the job started and exceptional quality of work. Do not hesitate to contact A+!

    When I first submitted my request James responded within 5 minutes and his company was the only company that did so. He immediately came and gave me an estimate which I found to be more than fair and reasonable based on prior quotes. He and his crew were friendly, fast, efficient and I would not hesitate to recommend this company to anyone. My yard looks amazing and I am extremely happy I found A+ Landscaping. I will not call another company for any work I would need done in the future.

    I stumbled upon A+ landscaping by accident. I'm glad that I did. He was quick to respond back. He came out on time when he said he would and was able to give a quote as well as cut my lawn then. I had to leave and when I came back he had made my yard look amazing!! He had cut more then he should of and blew off more leaves then he should of, but just shows that he cares what his work looks like. His prices are very responsible!! A+ landscaping will be my lawncare services for years to come!

Not only was his work professional and timely, he also was very charismatic. He paid attention to every detail I asked for and also respected our budget.

    As soon as I got James on the line he was very professional and courteous. He immediately offered to do a free estimate later that day and actually managed to start the job within hours of us talking on the same day with the expectation that he will return to fully complete the rest of the work. James actually sent me pictures of the job before and after giving me assurance of the quality of his job. Thank you and looking forward to working with you again...

    Had a wonderful experience with A+ Landscaping. James was excellent at communicating when he would be here and what exactly would be done. He was very receptive to what my needs/concerns regarding my yard work were. He came late on a Saturday to get the job done. My yard looks wonderful now. Everything that we discussed was done, price quoted was what was paid, very very happy with his service and would gladly refer him. He is respectful, honest and a dedicated worker.

    I asked A+ to come out and mow my yard and prune the bushes- I just moved into the house and it needed a little TLC. I came home and was so impressed, I could actually see the windows, the weeds were gone, the grass was mowed and edged and it looked great! I was so impressed I asked them to come back to power wash the house (which they did the next day) and that also came out great. Thanks to their work, it's like a whole new house! Highly recommend A+- A. Peters

Q&A

How did you get started doing this type of work?
I started my business in 2006. Friends, family and neighbors have always called upon me for odd jobs. A close friend said my work was great and i should to it for a living. I took his advice, and it was the best decision i ever made.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Most jobs are residential services. Our year round Lawn Care Programs are very popular. Clients enjoy having our professional staff maintain their lawns through out the On & Off season. When it comes to washing your home, you simply cant go wrong. In most cases, we hardly use High Pressure. Our Soft Wash system does remarkably well to remove mold, algae and stain from your siding. We can remove those ugly Roof Stains without any damage to your shingles Our pressure washing devision is also popular with customer's. Many clients hire us year after year to maintain the exterior of their homes. We all wash our cars, clothes and even our dogs.... Why not the house? We provide low & high pressure washing.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
A first time home owner hired us to renovate her property. We washed the house, planted new grass, shrub and mulch. She returned from her business trip and passed her house not realizing it was hers.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Experience is key, and it shows in the work. Look for companies that are accredited, licensed and insured. Ask questions! If you are going to place your trust in a company, trust that they know what they are doing
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
There are a lot of lawn care companies with a lot of different prices. We aren't the cheapest, and do not wish to be. You get what you pay for. We are about quality. It's a tough business. We follow rules and regulations and pay our dues. The cheap guys are here today, gone tomorrow. We are here to stay:-)
