PLM has done work for me. They do my weekly work. They've done some specialized work, such as putting in flowerbeds. I like the fact that they're dependable. We schedule them for every Thursday, and that's when they come. When they've done the extra work for me, they do a great job of cleaning up after themselves. In the other home I lived in, I worked with another company, and I had to go out and do an awful lot of cleanup. After that company planted flowers, they just left a mess and that kind of thing. I couldn't depend on them. Sometimes they'd show up, and sometimes they wouldn't. I just love the fact that I don't have to worry about that now. I know it's going to be done and it's going to look good when PLM gets done. They did put up a retaining wall and a couple other things. I would grade them as an A because they're well organized.
PLM does what they say they're going to do. They're always very prompt and efficient. They provide quality service. They do my yard maintenance—mowing, trimming, and fertilizing. I would highly recommend them to a friend if they were looking for more service. I would give them an A-.
We gave PLM an idea of what we wanted in our backyard and our driveway. They met all of our expectations. We loved what they did with our yard and our driveway. We've received many compliments, so we have passed along their name and number to several other people. They resurfaced our driveway. We had some draining issues, so they fixed them. They pretty much added new sod to our entire yard and planted a bunch of new trees, bushes, and flowers. They took out a lot and then replanted some. They did a really nice job, and they get an A.
I like PLM because the men who do the landscaping are just very courteous. We never have any problems with them. You can expect them exactly at the scheduled time every week. For the landscaping, they usually do quite a bit. They do trimming for the bushes and trees and regular things like mowing. It's excellent, and I have no complaints.
PLM was wonderful; it was great. I like that they cleaned up. They did a great job. They did a landscaping wall for me. They get an A grade.
I haven't used PLM in a while. I like the idea that they use good plants. They prepare the soil well before they put the plants in. They installed shrubbery, plants, and grass in my backyard. Then they landscaped my front yard, too. They're an A-grade company.
I like how PLM designed my landscaping. They really, really did a great job in selecting plants, including the perennials that came up every year. I had a problem with a couple of them dying in the winter, and they came out and replaced them for me. It was just a really good experience with them. They also helped me get someone to redo my driveway and sidewalks. That was a great experience also. They did all my landscaping in the front of my house because I had put an addition on, so all my landscaping was ruined. They re-landscaped the whole front of my house and put all new sod down in my backyard. They built me some beds with rocks and really did a great job. I found them in a book that comes out once a year that's the best of the best: Best Pick Reports. I'd give them an A.
PLM is very, very good. I'd rank them right at the top. They completely redid my lawn, and they take care of it every month. They do everything for me. They're an A+.
PLM is really reliable. We've been using them for about 12 years. They're just doing the lawn for us. If a friend asked me about PLM, I would definitely recommend them. They're a great company. I'd give the company an A+ grade.
PLM does our regular yardwork. We've always been very happy with the work they've done. They've done very quality work. They always show up every week for doing our lawn service. They primarily just do weekly yard maintenance, mowing, and edging, but each spring we also have them come in and do some light landscaping—putting in seasonal color bushes and things like that. I found out about them from a neighbor. They get an A+ from me.
