About this pro

How does your service stand out?

we approach and cover the property with an educated eye (2 degrees in horticulture). We bill hourly rates or can give you a bid, but we don't force anyone into lengthy contracts. We pay a lot and spend a lot of time being "legal" and this pays off for customers piece of mind and quality of service. Occasionally something can go wrong on even the best intentioned job by good people, and you will be covered for that.

    They came out right away for a more specific estimate and performed the work as agreed. Also gave great advice on some plants in the yard and ways to use some space. Very pleased and I would use them again.

    David helped us with pruning, removing overgrown shrubs, weeding and mulching and then hauling it away. I can now enjoy puttering in the yard the rest of the season. He is very knowledgeable about plants and an expert at pruning. He responded to our message within 24 hours and then immediately came over. The work was complete the very next day. We look forward to having him being able to help us as needed in the future. Thank you David. We appreciate it.

    Very nice work. His people are especially knowledgeable about pruning trees. The work was done right and in a reasonable amount of time. I continue to use his service.

Q&A

Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
It's actually very simple. We look and listen to what the job is. We give an estimate in hours and materials. You, the customer can choose to then pay us for how many hours it takes us to do the job (be it a little less or a little more than the estimate) OR ou can have us give a bid on the job that doesn't change. Maintenance work we charge for hourly and set a monthly maximum we try to stay under. we will contact you, the customer, if we see the work you want us to do will be over our maximum that month. we do not require a contract for maintenance, you can cancel at any time. We send an invoice near the end of the month with details on what was done including time & materials. You pay us by check or cash.
What types of customers have you worked with?
just about ANYTHING OUTDOORS related. Our specialty is plants, however, we can install and fix irrigation, build wood structures like trellis and fix fences, put in hardscapes like rockwalls, flagstone paths, etc. call.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Even if you want just the minimum done, there may be more going on under your lawn than you realize and signs that a novice may not see until too late that insects or disease are taking hold. We don't promise a lawn that looks like astro-turf, just one that's healthy. Is it worth saving $20 (... or $300.00) to make sure that highlight tree in the front of your house isn't pruned wrong and looks that way for the rest of it's life? do it right (maybe add a light).
