As a new home owner, I am never short of projects. The overgrown trees in my backyard that were beginning to touch my house and the huge mature tree between my neighbor and I (which had 20 feet branches hovering over my roof) were clearly not DIY projects I could handle. After requesting several estimates from pronounced "reputable/reliable" local landscapers on google and being stood up several times for estimates or not called back at all, I finally came across Michael's company via Thumbtack. He promptly called me the same day I requested the quote and physically came to see the project to give me an estimate. He was professional, punctual and took the time to explain the work that needed to be done. His estimate was fair and reasonable. We set an appointment that day for the work to be done later in the week. Today was the appointment. Again, he was punctual, professional and informative. His crew got the work done and cleared away in just a few hours. Even my neighbor was so impressed by his work that he asked him for an estimate for some work on his house while his crew was clearing the last of the branches away. I would absolutely recommend Michael Janachowski to anyone looking for landscape work and will definitely use him again in the future!
