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.”

“Grant & Power put in a new driveway with a new brick sidewalk, and they edged the driveway with bricks. I liked that they were here when they said they were going to be here, and they did the job. I had a slight problem with some of the bricks sinking, but they came back out right away and corrected the problem. This was my first time using them; I heard about them from a friend who gave me their number.”

“We use Grant & Power Landscaping for general landscaping, and when we did the backyard area, they designed that for us. They come when they say they are coming, and they do the job when they say they are going to do it—that isn't always the case with contractors. They bring in the plants themselves, and their cleanup is good. We have been using them on and off for several years. They are our landscaper of choice.”

“I like that Grant & Power Landscaping will do a free analysis at the beginning of each year, if you wish. Nowadays, everybody is trying to charge you for every single thing, but Grant & Power will talk to you about whatever it is you want to do. They will do whatever it is you want to do, even if you want to do a different plan.”

“Grant & Power Landscaping did flower beds and plants. I would recommend them to other homeowners.”

It's gorgeous. They were professional and dependable. I can't say enough phenomenal things about them. They were amazing.”

“They did a whole bunch of things for me—installed pavers in my driveway and backyard, did landscaping, put in drainage tiles, and installed plants—and the work has held up excellently. It is a very good landscaping organization. I liked their professionalism, courtesy, and the way they did the job. What stands out is their follow-up. They are Johnny-on-the-spot. They're A+.”

“I can't speak highly enough of Grant & Power. They put in a large patio and fireplace and redid the patio around the pool. They're very respectful. I would absolutely recommend them.”

“I had a positive experience with Grant & Power a year ago. They put in a whole garden in the back, and I'm getting pretty good use out of it. It's beautiful. The crew was courteous and wonderful. They were very talented, knowledgeable, and courteous—all of it. The cleanup was fine—total and excellent. I would give them an A+.”

“They did a fantastic job, and I'm extremely satisfied. This was my first time using Grant & Power. They finished the work in a reasonable amount of time. I've used them for several years. They did their work, and now, everything is going. Actually, I used them once, and then I used them again for several years. They did a project for me recently last year. I would give them an A+.”

“The contractor—the lead guy—was great. The landscapers were courteous, very good, diligent, and stayed on task. They did a fantastic job. This was the first time we used them, but the previous homeowner actually had used them to put in an existing patio. We got Grant & Power's information through the previous homeowners, and we felt it was best to go with them again. They really were above everything that we expected. I would give them an A+ across the board.”

“They're a great company to work with. They're very helpful, they do good work in a timely manner, and they clean up after themselves. We have a pond, and they take care of our pond. They've cleaned our pond several times, and they've done landscaping over the years, too. They're fantastic—A+.”

“They installed a paver patio, a front lawn, and lots of greenery. The technicians that came out were A+. The quality of the work that was done was an A. If I were to mention the company to a friend or relative, I would tell them that the service and attention to detail were fantastic. I would give Grant & Power an A+.”

“They were great. They were on time, efficient, and they did the work well. I received good quality materials from them. I'm very pleased. It was the second year I used their company. They removed some dead plants, trees, and bushes. They planted new ones and fixed a brick paver sidewalk that was about ten years old and sinking. They did that beautifully, and they also designed spots in the backyard where I wanted to revamp the shrubs. They did a nice job of designing and executing the plan—I was pleased with them all around. I've recommended them to a friend who was also very pleased with them. I'd say they're an A+ company.”

“We had some landscaping design work done with Grant & Power. They were responsive and creative with the artistic way they kind of outlined some of the plants for our backyard. We also had some patio work done as part of that landscaping effort. We had a fire pit installed, and we had some ambient lighting put into our backyard. They were able to effectively integrate all those different components into a final product, which was our backyard project. The work was done on time, and it was high quality. It was done last summer when we had a lot of heat and drought in Illinois, so some of the initial plantings did not make it. They responded to that problem, and they came back and replaced those plants with no questions asked. So, all in all, it was a positive experience for me. I'd give them an A.”

“I used Grant & Power Landscaping. The quality of their work is good. I have no complaints. I would give them an A grade.”

“Grant & Power Landscaping did a great job. They did landscaping at the front of our house. They planted two trees and pulled out a lot of old bushes. It was my first time using them. It's been great—they did a great job. They come out when I call. I'd give them an A+ for everything.”

“Grant & Power did landscaping in the back, and they worked on our patio. I feel I received good quality product and work from them. The crew had nice workers—they were very professional. They worked pretty hard, the poor guys, because it was 100 degrees out when they did the work. It was bad luck. The cleanup was OK. I think they were pretty good each day. They're A+.”

“I had a positive experience with Grant & Power. They took out some dead grass and reseeded. We've had them mulch before, too. We used them a second time because they did a good job the first time. I would use them again. If someone was thinking about using Grant & Power, I would tell them that it's a good idea. I would give the company an A+.”
