“They're terrific—A+. The quality and design were outstanding.”
“They remodeled a backyard patio. They cleaned up, and they kept everything in order. It was very rainy that week; they were conscious of that and took care of where they were walking. We were pleased with the end result. I'd rate them as an A+.”

“They overhauled our backyard. We had a drainage issue and an area where we couldn't get grass to grow, so they helped us with those two issues mainly. They were very thorough and respectful of our property. They're very conscientious about the way they accessed our property and leaving in better condition than they found it. I'd definitely give them an A rating.”

“I'd give them an A rating. I was happy with them.”
“We had a designer who did everything that we wanted them to do, so it worked out very well for us. They installed a paver patio and all sorts of softscaping and hardscaping. We chose them because we liked their designer the best. I would give them a solid A rating.”
“I liked their attention to detail and their guarantee. They did some trees, plants, and flowers in the backyard. We had some plants that died, and Grant & Power quickly came and replaced them. I think we had been referred to them by other people. I would give them whatever the top grade is. An excellent grade will be fine.”
“I liked the professionalism and the communication, and I liked that they got the work done in a timely manner. We had a paver patio placed, and then they put in some plants and trees around our yard. They were recommended by a friend. I would give them an A rating.”

“They did what they said they were going to do. They were working on a patio for me—they extended the current one. We chose them because our neighbors had used them. I would go with an A grade for them.”
“What was good was the quality of the work that they did, the care that they gave, and the follow-up when I had a couple of problems. I had a tumbled stone patio put in, and I also had them do some landscaping, sod, and shrubs. I found them through a personal recommendation from someone who knew Jan. I would definitely give them an A.”
“Grant & Power had good staff, good workmanship, quality materials, and good quality of work. The overall look of it is very good. They put in a patio with a sitting wall, a surround for a grill, and steps into a sunroom. We chose Grant & Power after seeing their drawings and their work. After speaking with them, we chose to go with them because of their expertise. I'd call them an A.”
“I felt like they worked with us well. They listened to what we wanted, and they delivered what they said they would with no surprises. They installed landscaping. There was a variety of trees, bushes, rocks, and stones. Whatever they designed, they installed it. They're an A-grade company.”

“I liked Grant & Power Landscaping's service and their attention to detail. They answered all my questions and were spot-on. They did a design, a patio, and some floral landscapes. Jan, their designer that was out, did a great job and was very informative. It was a good experience. I would give them an A+.”
“Grant & Power is great, and they do a great job. They have a unique design, and they're very easy to work with. They recently did a whole bed in our backyard, and they also do our weekly maintenance and our cleanup service. We've used them for years because they've been consistently good. I would definitely grade them as an A+.”

“I won't let anyone else do work here. Grant & Power Landscaping does everything, and they are wonderful. Every single aspect of their work is positive.”
“They were on time and efficient, they cleaned up beautifully, and I liked what they did. They rerouted my downspouts to put them underground in the grass, and they planted all kinds of plants for me. I chose Grant & Power Landscaping because they were recommended by a friend, and I would give them an A rating.”
“I found Grant & Power in the Best Pick Reports book. They tore out sidewalks, put in new sidewalks, poured concrete, poured paver blocks, and redid the landscaping. They made it new all around the house. They are an A+ on everything.”
“Grant & Power Landscaping was very professional and responsive to our requests for a quote. They followed through with exactly what they said they were going to do, and they billed us the quoted amount. We had some erosion damage from heavy rain, so we asked them to restore some of it and put in new sod. Everything turned out well. I chose Grant & Power because I was aware of them in the area through their local reputation and my neighbors. It's an A+ company.”
“They are fast and clean, and they do a great job. I have a big green space in my backyard, and Grant & Power added a bunch of flowers, took out a couple of trees, and added another tree. They did quite a lot of work. It was my second time using their services, and I will continue to use them. Once they finally came out, they did everything in a timely fashion. They are receptive to questions and concerns, too. I would give them an A+.”
“I liked Grant & Power Landscaping's overall quality. They did front landscaping at our home, and everything turned out to my satisfaction. The cleanup was fine. I chose them because of the salesman. I would rate the company as an A+.”
“The experience was positive because of their concepts, design, and professionalism. Everything was just really good—I can't think of anything bad. The last time I used them, they built a patio and added landscaping to a newly constructed home. I think the work has held up very well, except for the things beyond their control—things like plants not surviving the winter and some pavers that have come up because of the hard winter that we had. They have been responsive about correcting the situation, though. They really went above and beyond. Grant & Power Landscaping is an A+ company that I would use again.”
“Grant & Power did a great job. They took out some beds, put in some top soil and grass seed, cleaned up the existing beds that I had, and did some weed control. They did a very good job on everything. They came back a couple of times to do some extra stuff for us and went way above and beyond what I asked them to do. They were very professional and did a really nice job, so I would give them an A+ rating.”
“We had Grant & Power Landscaping put in a paver patio, and then we extended the walkway over to the side of the house and back by the utility shed. It was so professionally and thoroughly done, and they did extra things for us that weren't even a part of the contract. Without us knowing it, they took the eaves and the drains down from the top of the roof and put them down underneath the sidewalk—over where they put the pavers—so it wouldn't flood or get stone in there. That was a great idea. We told them we were appreciative and sent them a thank you note and everything. I heard about them from a friend of ours who does some work for us every once in a while—we asked him for references, and he mentioned Grant & Power. I would definitely use them again, and we have referred people to them, too. Their grade is an A+, for sure, because we are very happy customers.”
“Grant & Power Landscaping did a fine job. I am currently using them this year to do landscaping and clean up my yard.”
“I liked the designer, Jan. He was very attentive and had some good ideas, and the crew did decent work. I have been using Grant & Power for maybe four years. They've done the downspouts, some landscaping work, French drain repair, paver repair, and some other hardscaping. I found out about them because my neighbor was using them. I would give them the A grade.”
“Grant & Power Landscaping did landscaping and put in a new patio. They were professional and on time, and they did what they said they would do. This was my first time using their services, but I would use them again. They deserve an A.”
“Grant & Power Landscaping's workmanship and creativity made working with them a positive experience.”
“Grant & Power landscaped my backyard. They got rid of all the old stuff and put in some drains, bushes, and perennial plants. I was satisfied with the quality of the plants they had available, and I liked the guy who came out and measured—he was very patient and had good ideas. I would say they are an A.”
“I like Grant & Power's service. They basically took a blank slate in the backyard and created a living space. They are a hardworking team with good communication. I would give them an A grade.”
“I've been doing business with Grant & Power Landscaping for 10 years. They are reliable and do a good job.”
“I like that they do everything they say they are going to do, and they show up on the day they are supposed to show up. They did the landscape cleanup, some trimming, and put mulch all the way around the property. Grant & Power gets an A.”
