We've used them for a number of years because they're very good. They're on time, and they're very precise in the things they manicure on the lawn. They take care of our trees, so they know how to wrap them up for the winter. They're just very knowledgeable, and we're very happy with them. We chose them because they'd planted trees here originally. I'll give them an A because I have no complaints.
They were great. They were timely, and they actually showed up when they were supposed to and got the work done. They laid sod, cleaned up some of the overgrown stuff that we had, and put new landscaping in. We chose them because I saw the work they did in our neighborhood for other people. I'd rate them as an A.
They were timely and consistent. We use them for a variety of services based on the various initial services they provided. I have no complaints, so they get an A.
They do an absolutely thorough job on their garden cleanups. They were the ones that originally put in our landscaping in the front yard. We'd had a big landscaping project, and I've used them ever since to maintain it. They even won a national award, I noticed, a year or two ago. They get an A because I have no complaints.
They were good, attentive, and on top of it. I chose them because of their reputation. I'd rate them as an A.
They were prompt, the service was good, the work crew was courteous and helpful, and they did a good job. I chose them because they were recommended to me. I'd give them an A.
When they schedule you, they come out that day, and they come out at seven in the morning. They're right on time, and everything I've asked them to do, they've done. I'd rate them as an A.
We've had trees planted by Poul's Landscaping. They were fine.
Poul's Landscaping has done landscaping work for me in the garden, and it was a good job. They did what they said they were going to do, and I chose them because they're local. I'll give them an A.
They were great. I've used them for probably ten years for all my landscaping needs. Their customer service is really good. They typically replace certain plants, do all the design, and do all the dormant pruning. I'd rate them as an A.
