“They are very meticulous. When they're trimming the bushes, they will do it stem by stem. Even when I have the entire house closed up and they think I'm not home, they literally don't ever slack off. They're awesome. They were referred by a coworker of my husband. We would absolutely recommend them. They do seasonal maintenance. I'd give them an A, absolutely.”

They've planted trees and most recently spread mulch all around. They're an A company for sure.”
“The level of attention to detail that they showed while preparing to do the work, the quality of the work as it was performed, and the fact that they showed up on time were the kind of things that I liked about them. It was my first time using them. It's been a while, but I'd give them an A+.”

“I liked Poul's. They're courteous, they're prompt, they're efficient, and they're clean. They removed shrubs, did trimming, and planted shrubs as well. They don't do regular maintenance for us. They planted all that we have and replaced some stuff that was cleaned up for us. We'd definitely recommend them. I'd give them an A.”
