I liked quite a number of things. Some of the important things were timeliness, efficiency, and speed. These were the most notable things that I saw immediately when they started the work. They did the landscaping on my lawn. My basement was dripping water—it was seeping through the wall. We thought it was something to do with the wall. They said it was the landscaping, and that was precisely what it was. I wanted to test it through everything to make sure that it holds, and it has held. I would recommend the company. I've recommended them to friends. I've been speaking to them, and I have been to the office. They are conscientious and very professionally minded. When they get started on the work, they don't stop until they finish it. If they say that it will take three days, that's exactly what will happen. They're A+.
They did what they said, they did it on time, and they did it in budget. They were refurbishing a pondless water field. I found them from a referral. I would give them an A+.
They were creative. The job was landscaping. It's not something that everyone is familiar with—we didn't know which kind of plants would be deer resistant and that sort of thing. They knew their plants. They knew which ones would grow in what kind of area. They also had to come up with a solution for the bank where the water was running toward the house instead of away from the house. They fixed that very easily. They showed up on time, and I think they deserve an A.
I liked interacting with the owner, and they promised what they delivered on time. They did some landscaping. They put in some stepping stones and some plants along a sloped part of my property. I would recommend the company. I would rate them as an A.
They're reliable. They've been doing work for us for a long time. They're fine. I don't have anything to complain about. They had come out to do maintenance. I've been using them for about five years. I would recommend the company.
They came when they were supposed to come, they did what they were supposed to do, and the price was what they quoted. They did some tree and shrub trimming for us. I thought the work was an A.
East Coast Landscape Design does a really excellent, very professional job. They edged and cleaned up everything really nicely—it's beautiful. They're really knowledgeable about plants. They gave me a lot of good ideas for plants that are deer resistant, which has worked out fabulously well because we have tons of deer. They're very nice people, and their plan looks very nice. I would absolutely give them an A+.
They're fantastic. They're getting bigger, but the owner still comes by to talk with us and make sure things are going well. Our lawn looks great. I would definitely rate them as an A.
East Coast Landscape Design is very professional, the work is above par, and they're a great group of people to work with. They completely landscaped the entire backyard. I've been using them for about three years. They're a grade-A company.
I liked everything about the work, and East Coast Landscape knew what they were talking about. They showed up on time, and it's worked out well so far. I tried them, and things worked out. I got an estimate from somebody else, but East Coast Landscape seemed like the best fit for what I needed. I'd probably give them an A.
