A selection of 260 homeowner reviews:
“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.”
