I chose them from Best Pick Reports. They did a great job. They were constructive, when we did the estimate, about some options and things like that. They were timely, they did what they said they were going to do, and it was high quality. They regraded some part of our backyard, put some sod down, ripped up a whole section, and planted a bunch of plants. They get an A. They were excellent.
They're reliable—extremely reliable. They do the job. I've never had a complaint. They mow our lawn every week, and they have also done general landscaping maintenance on occasion—weeding, trimming, and mulching; that kind of stuff. We've been using them for four years, as long as we've been in this house, and they deserve an A+. They do a great job, and I've even noticed that they've done some extra things like picking up branches that weren't even in their way. They've done a lot of extra.
They're great. They took care of our lawn since 1999. They put everything we wanted in the house, and they took care of everything for the whole lawn, the bushes and the plants, everything. They're a great company. They get an A. We've kept them since 1999, so I feel that they're A+—excellent.
They were quick. It turned out better than I thought it would. It was just great. Everything was picked up, and there was nothing I had to pick up after. It was really nice. They did a patio, transplanted some plants, added some plants in the backyard, and put down mulch in the back and the front. It was a lot, and it looks great. I'd give them an A+.
They were very reliable and very responsible. They did everything they were supposed to do. I had an annual contract with them for three or four years. They also did plantings we ordered, like trees and shrubs. I'd definitely recommend Howard Landscapes to a friend, and I'd definitely give them an A.
The communication was good, and the promptness was good. They wrote up a quote, and they came and discussed options. They actually met with me beforehand, as well, to survey the property and say, 'Oh, you need this much mulch.' They didn't just say, 'Oh, we'll come and do it.' They took my requests. They were doing mulching. It was my first time using them. I found them in Best Pick Reports. An A is good for them.
They did a great job. They're very thorough, they get the job done on time, and they meet the budget. They do my weekly lawn maintenance and my monthly and semiannual yard cleanups. The customer service is great. Mike does a good job. I'd give them an A.
They did a good job. They come out, they do the work, they're gone quickly, and it's good quality. They do spring cleanup. I've used them two or three times. They're polite, and they're responsive.
My experience with Howard Landscapes has been outstanding. They are extremely knowledgeable in their field and their craft, and they find practical solutions. They've done four projects around our home, from landscaping to drainage to yard work. They're very reliable. We've been working with them for 18 years, and they have certainly earned an A+ on quality.
Howard Landscapes was super professional, and they did great design work—everything's perfect. They landscaped our backyard. I've been using them for years, and their customer service is great. They deserve an A+.
