“They are absolutely the best. They've done everything—monthly, weekly landscaping—they're fabulous. They're A+. I would highly recommend them.”

“They've been my landscapers for 25 years. Well, up until this year, I mean, they even did little extra things, like I had no grass in my backyard, just a lot of concrete and a pool and they would—I loved the fact that they would go through and blow all the leaves out of the yard with their blower and take care of that, which was really just not part of my original contract, but they do it, and I think it's a great little extra service. I'd grade them maybe an A- overall. They are here every Tuesday like clockwork.”

“I think they're awesome. They're very reliable, they show up when they say they're going to show up, and they kind of go above and beyond as far as the work they've done for us. They seem very knowledgeable on plants and what's going to work in certain areas of the yard and certain sunlight. So everything they've planted for us works very well, and the maintenance they've been doing is great. They've done landscaping and stonework just around the garbage for us. And then we also use them for weekly maintenance as well. I'd give them an A+. I would recommend them.”

“They did landscaping, and they built an outdoor living area. I would grade the overall experience A+. I would highly recommend them.”

“I liked their high-quality work. They did refreshing of the landscaping. I would grade them A+. I would highly recommend them.”

“There was one thing, that when they did my yard, they did not do what I asked them to do. I gave them a call, they came back the next day, and took care of it. I thought that was quite positive. They did landscaping for me. They earned an A+. I would highly recommend them to a friend.”

“They are always good. They just keep my yard good. They put out flowers when it's time. They get an A+. I would highly recommend them, and have recommended them.”

“I liked that they did very good thorough work and did what they said they were going to do. They put in a French drain to repair some work that another landscaper had done, so they actually installed a French drain. They did A work. I would highly recommend them, and I have recommended them.”

“I like PLM. They show up when they are supposed to, and they do a good job. They do landscaping—my weekly mowing, edging, clean up the garden. I would grade the overall experience with an A and recommend them.”

“He does our regular service. He does landscaping for me. I would grade the overall experience A. The work was excellent and no complaints. I would likely recommend them.”

“I like that they are prompt, they were there when they said they were going to come, and I've been real happy with the service so far. They just do landscaping and mowing. I'd give them an A.”

“I liked that I could talk to them, it's like they're being neighborly, they're not just business, not impersonal. They're very good at listening and communicating. They're really just doing their job, but nice. They did landscaping, and I had them also doing my yard. They're A-grade.”

“They are real good at what they do. They put new landscaping in. They get an A.”

“They are very well. They're very good. There's nothing in particular, they're just good. I'm very pleased with their work. They've also done some work on my irrigation. I'd rate them A+ overall.”

“They do my landscape work. I've had several positive experiences with them. I go way back with them. They landscaped a house for me in 2005 in Frisco, and for some reason I was in that area a week or two ago, and I drove by and it got yard of the month, and they didn't even have any seasonal color planted. I actually sent John a picture of that to show him. They're real good about planning landscape for the future. Some guys will come in and plant a bunch of stuff, and the whole property is overgrown in six years. These guys are really good. They've earned an A+. They've done four houses for me over the years. I'm on my fourth house with them right now. I would definitely recommend them. In fact, that's who I recommend. That's who I recommend them to if anyone ever asks for a landscape.”

“We just had a tree installed, so I guess they were quick, efficient, and they did a good job. I'd give them an A+.”

“They did some work in our backyard with some landscaping and stonewalls and things like that. We were happy with them. The owners kind of kept up with us early on. The guy who came out and did some measuring explained himself. So, we are really pleased with what they did and didn't have any defective work that I have to share or anything. You know, there was nothing crazy out of their expertise, so I guess I would say I can recommend them without any—I would recommend them to somebody.”

“They're always dependable. I've used them for a number of years now, they're always dependable, and they show up on time, which is a big thing to me. It's generally landscaping along with—this last time it was my sprinkler repair. I'd give them an A.”

“They are just very professional and always prompt. They did landscaping work for me.”

“They did a good job. They did a landscaping job for me. I'd give them an A and recommend them highly.”

“They did exactly what we needed them to do. They didn't have to come back. They did landscaping for us. I'd grade them A. I would very likely recommend them, and would call them if I needed them again.”

“They did landscaping for me. I'll probably give them an A- overall.”

“I liked that they were prompt in the execution of the service, they were very clear in detail in what they would do and how much it would cost, and they worked with me on any adjustments on their proposal very quickly and efficiently. They did landscaping work and a major renovation of the whole outside area of the house. They'd get an A overall. I would very likely recommend them.”

“I had a wonderful experience with PLM. They completely landscaped the front yard. They also converted my sprinkler system, put down new soil, and put in new plants, flowers, holders, and river rocks. It's beautiful; they did a great job. They were professional, and the quality of work was exceptional. I'd say they deserve an A+.”

“They did sprinkler repair. They arrived on time, the customer service was really good, and their punctuality, cleanliness, and expertise were excellent. I'd give them an A+.”

“They did a retaining wall. They were very responsive. We thought the guys were great, and everyone was very friendly and did a great job. I'd grade them as an A+.”

“PLM was doing some yard cleanup—trimming, weeding, and things like that. They were very efficient. They're an A+.”

“It's been awhile. They did landscaping. I'd give them an A+.”

“PLM has done landscaping work at our house. I liked the whole nine yards. Their customer service is good; if there's a problem, they check it out and follow up. They have warranties—a lot of good things. I'd give them an A+ grade. I've recommended them to tons of people.”

“They replaced a bunch of nozzles that had outgrown their existence. They were very professional and quick. What they did worked, and then they billed us. They're an A+ comapny.”

“They're good. They built a fence and landscaped our whole back area. I like their efficiency and the way they clean up everything. They responded with any follow-up that we needed. They're really good. I'd give them an A. We've already recommended them.”

“I think they may have taken a look at our sprinklers, and then I think they also may have cut down some Crape Myrtle's for us. We've had so much work done. They did a good job. They were prompt, they got it done when they said they would get it done. It's likely that I'll recommend them.”

“It was really good. They installed an irrigation system and landscaping. I'd grade them an A. I don't have any complaints at all. I'd recommend them.”

“They did a great job. They re-landscaped our front garden and put down sod in the front yard. They were very easy to work with. I liked the plants that he suggested. The guys got in when they said they were going to do it, and everything was done on time. They get an A from me.”

“They did sod and landscape installation in our yard. They were very professional and did things on a timely basis. Overall, it was a good experience. I'd give them an A rating.”

“They were last here cutting bushes. It was good, no problem. They did what they were supposed to and it looks nice. They did a good job, and it looked good when they were finished. I'm going to call them again in a month or so because I need to get something done again. I'd give them an A. It was very nice. I'd recommend them to anybody who asked me.”

“They basically re-mulched some flowerbeds and tree wells. It was pretty mundane. I have no idea about the workers, I wasn't here. I'd give them an A.”

“It was landscape work. They tore out our existing landscape and grass and replaced it. They did the design work and all the installation. They were easy to work with. We liked their design. They were very fast doing the work.”

“They did some landscaping. They did a good job. They did what they said they would do and when they said they would do it. I'd grade them an A.”

“They were cleaning up some shrubbery that had been overgrown, and then putting in new flower beds and shrubs. They were very professional. They showed up on time, did a good job, and worked very hard. Overall, a good experience. They deserve an A.”

“We've had them for several years. They did landscaping. They're very responsive. We've had some issues with some of the work that's been damaged, and they went right out to fix it. Whenever we ask them to do something extra, like mulch or something, they're usually very accommodating. I would give them an A.”

“They're good. We had two projects done. I had an irrigation and sprinkler system put in. I'd give them an A grade.”

“I think that they are very consistent with their scheduling. I've used them our major landscaping and for our weekly maintenance service. I believe there's good communication and consistency in following through. John Melby—one of the owners—did the plan for remodeling a landscaping. He did go that far, and that included lighting. I'd give them an A. I recommended them to a neighbor this week.”

“They worked on my sprinkler system. I'd give them an A. I've had them for years and they always do good work.”

“They did a great job. They re-sodded my front lawn. They got an A.”

“They did some clean-up and stuff.”

“They did fine. It was doing some drainage for me. They came out when they said they were going to do it, and they cleaned up their mess. The price they told me on the phone, that's what it was.”

“PLM has done work for me. They do my weekly work. They've done some specialized work, such as putting in flowerbeds. I like the fact that they're dependable. We schedule them for every Thursday, and that's when they come. When they've done the extra work for me, they do a great job of cleaning up after themselves. In the other home I lived in, I worked with another company, and I had to go out and do an awful lot of cleanup. After that company planted flowers, they just left a mess and that kind of thing. I couldn't depend on them. Sometimes they'd show up, and sometimes they wouldn't. I just love the fact that I don't have to worry about that now. I know it's going to be done and it's going to look good when PLM gets done. They did put up a retaining wall and a couple other things. I would grade them as an A because they're well organized.”

“PLM does what they say they're going to do. They're always very prompt and efficient. They provide quality service. They do my yard maintenance—mowing, trimming, and fertilizing. I would highly recommend them to a friend if they were looking for more service. I would give them an A-.”

“We gave PLM an idea of what we wanted in our backyard and our driveway. They met all of our expectations. We loved what they did with our yard and our driveway. We've received many compliments, so we have passed along their name and number to several other people. They resurfaced our driveway. We had some draining issues, so they fixed them. They pretty much added new sod to our entire yard and planted a bunch of new trees, bushes, and flowers. They took out a lot and then replanted some. They did a really nice job, and they get an A.”

“I like PLM because the men who do the landscaping are just very courteous. We never have any problems with them. You can expect them exactly at the scheduled time every week. For the landscaping, they usually do quite a bit. They do trimming for the bushes and trees and regular things like mowing. It's excellent, and I have no complaints.”

“PLM was wonderful; it was great. I like that they cleaned up. They did a great job. They did a landscaping wall for me. They get an A grade.”

“I haven't used PLM in a while. I like the idea that they use good plants. They prepare the soil well before they put the plants in. They installed shrubbery, plants, and grass in my backyard. Then they landscaped my front yard, too. They're an A-grade company.”

“I like how PLM designed my landscaping. They really, really did a great job in selecting plants, including the perennials that came up every year. I had a problem with a couple of them dying in the winter, and they came out and replaced them for me. It was just a really good experience with them. They also helped me get someone to redo my driveway and sidewalks. That was a great experience also. They did all my landscaping in the front of my house because I had put an addition on, so all my landscaping was ruined. They re-landscaped the whole front of my house and put all new sod down in my backyard. They built me some beds with rocks and really did a great job. I found them in a book that comes out once a year that's the best of the best: Best Pick Reports. I'd give them an A.”

“PLM is very, very good. I'd rank them right at the top. They completely redid my lawn, and they take care of it every month. They do everything for me. They're an A+.”

“PLM is really reliable. We've been using them for about 12 years. They're just doing the lawn for us. If a friend asked me about PLM, I would definitely recommend them. They're a great company. I'd give the company an A+ grade.”

“PLM does our regular yardwork. We've always been very happy with the work they've done. They've done very quality work. They always show up every week for doing our lawn service. They primarily just do weekly yard maintenance, mowing, and edging, but each spring we also have them come in and do some light landscaping—putting in seasonal color bushes and things like that. I found out about them from a neighbor. They get an A+ from me.”

“PLM does our regular maintenance. They're really responsive. When I've ever had any questions or issues, they respond and get it fixed right away. We've been using them for a number of years. I think a neighbor had used them for some landscaping, and I called them based on what I saw from their landscape. The company is an A+.”

“PLM is prompt. They're always helpful. They do a good job. They do all of our yardwork and landscaping. We've been their customer for a long time. They're A+.”

“PLM has done my front yard. I like that they have good quality. They just redid my front yard for me. I found them from some good friends of mine.”

“The gentleman that came to appraise the project was very knowledgeable. The workers were very efficient. PLM reset the four different garden spots. They put plants in them, mulched, and cleaned up, and they took out a couple trees—small bush trees. I'd give them an A.”

“It's been a while since PLM did some work for me. They did a good job. I'd had somebody recommend them, and I had them do some flowerbed work for me a couple of times. I like the job they do. I'd give the company an A rating.”

“PLM used to do my yard stuff. They did what they were supposed to do. They just did yard maintenance. I'd grade them as an A.”

“PLM is fine. They deal more with my wife than with me. They're the gardeners. They've been with us for 20 years. They do a fine job. They're there when they're supposed to be, and they keep the place looking good. I'd probably rate them as an A.”

“PLM did some work for us. They're our lawn care service. They just do the yardwork. They're very good and reliable. They're in and out, with no muss and no fuss. The company is grade A.”

“PLM does work for me all the time. They're the people who take care of my yard. They come on time. They come regularly scheduled. They do good work. I've never had any problem with them. They put in a sprinkler system for me. They do all my lawn maintenance. They do all the fertilizing and all the mowing. I've never had a problem with any of it. My wife was the one who found them about 20 years ago. I'd give them a solid A.”

“PLM always does good work. They do my yard work every week. They do trimming. They do fertilizing. They do anything that has to do with the lawn. When we moved down here, my son lived here, and they were doing work for him, so that's how we found them. The company gets an A from me.”

“PLM is just efficient. We've used them forever. We've been pleased with them. They're doing lawn maintenance for us. They may have fixed a sprinkler once. I would recommend them to a friend and rate them as a grade-A company.”

“I think PLM was responsible. They came up with good ideas, and they implement them well. As far as landscaping, they did my backyard, including the landscaping around my new pool and sod. They redid my sprinkler system. I would give the company an A grade. They did a great job.”

“I liked PLM's work. They were very thorough. They do my landscaping. They do all the maintenance on my house. They trim the bushes and cut the grass. They do the landscaping around my pool. I'd grade them as an A.”

“PLM totally redid my whole lawn. They took out old, overgrown shrubbery and did it more environmentally-friendly, so it doesn't require as much water. The customer service was good overall. They just do a good job. We used them years ago. I'd give them an A; I haven't had any complaints.”

“PLM is good. I liked the fact that they have knowledge about a number of different things. They can provide service for not just grass or landscaping. They can cover the whole gamut. They can do repairs on sprinkler systems. They have people who can do all sorts of things. They do the regular mowing for me. They periodically trim the shrubs. They check on the trees. They have fixed the sprinkler system—the underground system. When it's not functioning, they fix those. I'd give them an A rating.”

“I like PLM's professionalism. They reworked the entire front landscaping of my house—the bushes and the planting, but not the lawn. I have been aware of them for some time, so I went with them. I would give the company an A grade. I think the work that they did was good. He's been good about follow-up. If there's been any couple of minor issues, I've called him, and he's come back or sent somebody by to fix it. We had a drip irrigation system put in that sprung a few leaks here and there, and they've been pretty responsive in coming back and repairing those. We had a couple plants that didn't quite make it, and he's has come by, looked at them, and said they would replace them this fall, when the temperature cools off a little bit. So as long as he follows through with that, I would be very pleased with what they've done for us.”

“PLM are my landscapers. They've been doing my yard for two and a half years. They're very reliable. The owner's very hands-on. We have a big yard. They do all the landscaping maintenance—cutting trees and all that stuff. I found out about them because they were doing stuff in my neighborhood. I'd grade them as an A.”

“PLM does a good job. They manage it. They just do landscaping for me. I think they did work on the prior homeowner's yard, and that's how I heard about them. I'll give them an A.”

“I like PLM's owner and the work that they do. He follows through on what he promises. They did just landscaping work for me. I found out about them a long time ago, maybe over ten years ago. We noticed another home they were working on, and they were doing such a good job that we thought we'd give them a call. We'd rate them as an A.”

“PLM's work is very professional. They're doing general landscaping for us, and they built a fence. They're an A-grade company.”

“PLM is my regular service. They're here weekly. They're just doing landscaping and lawn treatments for me, but they also do my sprinklers. I had them out for a landscaping quote years ago, and then when I needed a new service, I called them because I liked their presentation. They get an A grade.”

“PLM does my yard every week. They've been taking care of my yard for 15 years. I like that I don't have to tell them anything. They come. They cut it. They take care of the landscape, and it's a done deal. I never have to talk to them. For the lawn treatments, they come a couple times a year and leave a note on my door. I have no complaints. I would recommend them to a friend. They get an A grade from me.”

“PLM is the best. I like them because they're very good at what they do. They're very responsive, and the guys who work there are absolutely, genuinely wonderful. It's just the best experience. They cut the grass, weed, and shape the shrubbery. Also, they do trimming when it's necessary. They keep the yard gorgeous all the time. I would give them an A+ grade.”

“I had some landscape lights fixed, and it was great. Everything went well. It was perfect, and the service was the best. They were very helpful in helping me decide what needed to be done and fixing it appropriately. I'd give them an A.”

“PLM does my landscaping and maintenance. The work they do is always perfect, and my yard gets a lot of compliments—A+.”

“I've used PLM for lawn services for probably 20 years. They've always been extremely friendly. I would rate them as an A+.”

“They work when they say they're going to work, and they're always on time. They do an excellent job when they do the lawn. They mow the lawn, and they hire somebody to fertilize it. They also do periodic, quick landscaping. I had a really bad experience with a couple of companies, and I came upon PLM after that experience. Working with PLM has been positive for us, so I'd give them an A grade.”

“They did the work pretty quickly in terms of putting a lot of people on the job, and the resulting product looks good. They did the landscaping for the plants in our backyard as well as in our front yard, pulled everything up, and prepared the yard for new plantings. We got them from another family who had previously used them. I'd grade them as an A.”

“PLM did exactly what we wanted them to do, and they got it done quickly. It looks great. They relandscaped our whole front flowerbed. I'd give them an A. I had heard good things about the company from other families.”

“PLM took care of business. They're honest people, and they came in a timely manner. We've actually used them more than once because they are very favorable to us. We had a sprinkler issue; something was wrong with the heads, so he adjusted all the sprinkler heads in the backyard for us. The second time, we had some tree root issues, and he came out and evaluated those. We called PLM for the tree root issue because they do tree services as well, and the sprinkler system was done by PLM. They came in and adjusted what the issues were with that. It's a very good company. They're an A. We were happy with them, and there's a broad range of things they take care of.”

“They're responsive. I think that if there's an issue, they're quick to get it on the scheduling dock. They have a high level of service and great quality, and they are knowledgeable. I haven't had any issues at all, so working with them has been a positive experience all the way around. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend PLM to anybody. They've done some mowing and some weeding, and then they actually were out here yesterday for some sprinkler head replacements; we've done a couple of those. In all cases, they've done great work. I'd give them an A.”

“They did a good job, and they were fast. They did work at a house I was selling, and they did a really good job. They got in and got out, and they knew what they were doing. There wasn't a lot of back and forth with them. I think we got the company from the Best Pick Reports. We had some damage to the sprinkler system, so they repaired some sprinkler heads and some of the pipe. I didn't have to call them back for anything when they were finished. I would say they get an A.”

“I broke my arm, so I had to get someone to cut my grass. PLM did it immediately, so they're really responsive. Since then, they have been doing it weekly, and the yard looks good. They do good work, and the results look nice. They've done a good job. I'd give them an A grade because there are no problems.”

“They are reliable and professional, and they do a complete job every time. They do regular maintenance for us, and then they also do some special projects and some seasonal things. I'd rate PLM as an A.”

“The whole time I lived in Dallas, whenever I had a problem, I called PLM. They always came on time and fixed the problem, and they were personable when I called. They fixed the sprinklers and rerouted a drain thing. They worked on the sprinklers most of the time. Over the 15 years that I lived there, when I had a problem or needed something, I called them. PLM deserves an A.”

“First of all, they were helpful at giving ideas about what we should plant. I told them what I wanted, and they came out before they did it so that they could see the site firsthand. They did a very good job. I'd give them an A because I didn't have any problems.”

“They did the sod in my front yard, and they did a good job. They were very professional. They told me exactly what they were going to do and what to expect. I'd probably give them an A because I didn't have any problems at all.”

“They do everything that they say they're going to do, and they do a really good job. They mow the grass, edge, weed the flowerbeds, and trim the shrubs, and they really stay on top of it. I'd grade them as an A.”

“They were on time, and they did good work. They removed a tree, added dirt, laid sod, and moved the sprinklers. I'd give PLM an A rating.”

“I've been working with PLM for almost 20 years, so I must like them if I keep having them coming back. They install and maintain sprinklers and controls. I'd give them an A.”

“I was well pleased with the work they did. They solved the problem, and that's what I was looking for. I had a valve that controlled one of the zones, and sometimes, it didn't shut off. I needed to have that valve replaced, so they came out and did it. The company was recommended by another guy who had used them previously. I'd give them an A.”

“They installed the sprinkler system. There were some things that needed to be worked on, but when I called them back, they came and reworked them. They did a good job, so I would say they're an A.”

“The work was done on time and as it was outlined. It was a pretty quick job. It was just a tune-up of the sprinkler system—getting everything repaired and in better working condition. They did it quickly and per the agreement. I chose them because they are used by our neighbor, and in our neighborhood, we kind of go off who's been used and has a proven record of good quality and so forth. Basically, they came by reference. I'd give them an A.”
