“They're just a very good company. More dependable than your average contractor and the quality of work was much higher than average. They provided landscaping and they build an external outdoor structure for us. They'd be an A. Nobody's perfect.”

“They helped us with a volunteer project. They actually helped us out in a pinch and it was a good experience. It was a volunteer project, a non-profit project. We were helping a local elementary school out with some landscaping work and our primary landscape guy bailed on us. I called up Laird and they were able to step in and help out and provide great service in a short amount of time. I would say A+.”

“Everything went great. Everything was great. I'd grade them as an A+. Very likely to recommend them.”

“They did a great job—that's what I hired them for. They did landscaping work. They get an A+, in my opinion. It came out really well. I had no problems getting in contact with them and they came and did the work when they said they would. They showed up when they said they would. I didn't see anything left over. They put everything together and it came out exactly as he had drawn out.”

“They listened to me instead of just figuring I was just a woman and didn't know what I was talking about. They did landscaping and drainage. They put in an irrigation system. A+ and I've recommended them to other people, so I was pretty happy because I never recommend anyone. They were great in everything, every way.”

“They've done work on and off over the years. I certainly don't have any complaints about those guys when we've used them. They do all sorts of stuff like tree trimming, grass, or thatch removal—a variety of these kinds of things. I liked their attention to detail. I would say they're an A+.”

I've worked with multiple crews, they do ongoing maintenance for us and they're all very nice crews. They redid all of our landscaping—in the backyard put in some flower beds. They also built a screened in porch for us as well as a detached patio concrete pad, but mostly landscaping. I'd give them an A+.”

“They were honest. They did exactly what they said they were going to do and they were timely. Just very professional. I would give them an A+.”

“They're very good. They work with you and the guys are really good. And they are doing my garden today, funnily enough. I just like them. They're really good. They work with you. And Vince, the guy that I work with, he's one of the head people over there and he's just gets me—what I want, what I don't want. I'd give them an A+. They've been doing my garden since they totally re-landscaped it four years ago. They're good people. I've recommended them to a lot of people. People have used them, maybe not as much as I have, but people have used them, I know they have.”

“I liked the work they did. They redid the landscaping on our front yard. I'd probably give them an A.”

“They were perfect. I would go back to them for everything else. They did some drainage correction for me. I would give them an A+. They were professional, clean, and prompt from the beginning to the end. They had a lot of work to do, so they told me when they would get it done and followed it to the T. I've already recommended them.”

“I would give them the best score an A+. We had the work done when there was a lot of rain, so there was a lot of mud and mess; that of course wasn't their fault. I would definitely recommend them.”

“I would give them an A+, overall. I've already recommended them. They did an assessment for work that I had already started myself. They gave me a lot of suggestions to help improve the drainage system in my front yard for water that was piling up on the sidewalk. So, they fixed that part of it, as well as some other parts. They got it done timely and it looks great.”

“I would give them an A+, overall. They were on time, said when they were coming and going, and did what they said they were going to do.

The gentleman I dealt with from Lair was very professional, and he went above and beyond to help us. When they did the front walkway, they actually put some gravel down on a walkway that wasn't part of the scope. I don't think they even charged me for it. Overall, they were looking at what we wanted and they pulled it off. I've already recommended them.”

“They provide a quality product, they do things in a timely manner, and they have very good people. I've used them for years. I can't say enough good things about them. They're very responsive. The last thing they did for me was resod my backyard. We've had some trouble in the backyard and front yard, and they've gone out of their way to help me figure out what I should do to trim out the trees, how much watering to do, and how much to fertilize. They just go out of their way to make sure the product is well done. They fully helped plan and landscape our whole yard 20 years ago, and they have helped us update it off and on over the last 19 years. When I say landscaping, I'm talking about flowerbeds, the yard, special projects around the patio, rock work, and all that kind of stuff. They're the highest grade possible—I would give them an A+.”

“They spent the time to do the job right, and we're really happy with the work they did. They put in a new flowerbed in the front of the house—they designed the flowerbed, they picked the plants, and they put them in. They also dug a root barrier before they did the flowerbed. I would give them an A+—they did super.”

“Laird Landscaping did landscaping for me two or three years ago. They are really good. They also put in a drainage system in my backyard, because it's a little low, and I have a swamp all the time in the top part. I'd give them an A+—I had no complaints. He did a fantastic job. I had to do some stuff to the trees we installed because of my homeowner's association, and he worked things out to satisfy them, so I couldn't have asked for better.”

“They were very nice, and they did excellent work. They were here before eight in the morning, and they worked until four-thirty or five—until they finished that job. They were really good, and I've really become friends with them. They were so nice. They put in a drainage system, they enclosed the patio, and they did the landscape—it was really nice.

“They're professional. They've removed a couple of trees for us and pulled some bushes as well. I'd say they're an A.”

“They have done different things over the years. They built us an outdoor kitchen, they did paving in our backyard, they built us two fire pits, they replaced sod, they built containing walls, and they rebuilt drains. They also planted some greenery for us, so they've done a whole multitude of different things. I would give them an A.”

“They landscaped the front yard, and they did maintenance and drainage work in the backyard. They were quick, they were clean, and they did a good job with the work that they did. They are definitely an A.”

“They were knowledgeable, thorough, and timely. They actually finished the job slightly under budget. The most recent project they did was a backyard remodel. They did the hardscape—the grass wasn't growing, so they replaced it with flagstone and plants. This was my second time dealing with them—the first time, they did a drainage project for us. We were having water issues in our garage, and they put in some conduits to control the flow so water didn't get into the garage. I would give them an A.”

“They just did a great job—it was just very professional. They are experts in the field. They did all kinds of work for me—walls, refinishing, stone work, sod, and plants. I chose them because I've known them for a long time. I would give them an A.”

“Laird Landscaping is wonderful. They do beautiful work, and the people who work for them are very professional and very clean. It was a very nice experience. We liked them so much that we're going to have them do some more work on our landscaping. They're very good people. I'd give them an A+.”

“They did very high-quality work—everything exceeded our expectations. They did an overall landscaping overhaul and an addition to our patio, and they definitely deserve an A+ grade.”

“Laird Landscaping did a lot. They put in all new drainage and completely new landscaping in the backyard, raised the level of my property line, and put in a new sprinkler system and outdoor lighting. I like the owner and his staff. They came up with the plan and the design, and I loved everything that they did. There was not a single aspect that I was unhappy with—A+.”

“The work Laird did was excellent, and the people working at our house were very good. We're completely satisfied. At the beginning, they told us it would be several months because they were backed up, but they ended up coming out a week or two earlier than when they'd projected. When we do the next step, we'll definitely use them. I'd rate them as an A because we had no complaints.”

“I liked the way the guys worked, and they cleaned up after themselves beautifully. Vince was so knowledgeable about the plants. I just can't say anything bad about them. As a matter of fact, I recommended them to one of the neighbors who used them on a small job. I was trying to find somebody who could do tropical landscaping for me, and everyone that I went to didn't do that. Another company said they would do it, but they wasted two months of my time. Then I went over to a plant shop, and the guy there recommended Vince to me—that's how I found Laird Landscaping. They earned an A+ grade.”

“I was very pleased with Laird Landscaping, and I've recommended them to other people. I'd rate them as a total A on everything. They are fabulous.”

“They did an excellent job on the landscaping design. The work was professional. They cleaned up after themselves and didn't leave a mess. We liked his design and his attitude. I would give them an A. They did a very, very good job.”

“They did a very nice job. They did a very upscale remodeling of my whole garden—they did everything we needed. I chose them because they were the only ones who told me I need to do drainage for the garden to be sure that everything was fine, and I was not aware of any problems on the site. I'd give them an A because they are excellent.”

“I liked everything they did. They did the front bed, and they replaced some grass in the back. I liked his suggestions and that he is a landscape architect. I'd give them an A+ rating.”

“Laird Landscaping always does good work. They get an A.”

“Laird Landscaping did our landscaping. We found the company through a friend's referral. I'd give them an A.”

“When we talked about the job, he took it over and ran with it, and he understood everything I wanted done without any complications. There was nothing I disliked. They actually went above and beyond what they said they were going to do. I was very happy with them, so I'd give them an A.”

“They made a landscape design for me, and I was pleased. The design was for my front and back yards. They did what they said they were going to do. They met their deadline, as far as when they would get it done, and the price they quoted me was exactly what they ended up doing it for. I chose them from the Best Pick Reports. I'd give Laird Landscaping an A.”

“They were very easy to work with. They did a great job, and if something wasn't to my liking, they came back and fixed it. They were nice, good people to work with. There was nothing I disliked about them; I never had one issue with them. They told me up front what the timing was going to be, and they pretty much kept to the timing. The plants got planted, the decks got built, the lights got put in, and it all looks great. I'd give them an A. I found them in Best Pick Reports.”

“Laird Landscaping is a really top-notch service all the way around. They've done two jobs for me. One was quite a large job on eight acres, and the most recent job was on two-thirds of an acre. They are very creative in their approach to design, do a quick and very professional job, and leave everything really tidy. I'd give them an A+.”

“Laird Landscaping is the best. They did an excellent job. We came up with our own design, but they recommended some other things that worked better with our property. As a matter of fact, the flowers they chose are still blooming. I recommend them to everybody—they are amazing.”

“The people from Laird worked really hard, and it turned out terrific. I liked working with the project manager, and everything was done really, really well. They deserve an A+.”

“They knew what they were doing, and they were very professional. They put French drains around my house. The worked with me designing the area. I would rate their quality of work very high—A+. I was pleased with the results.”

“The work was fantastic. It was great, no complaints. It was done in a timely fashion, and it was neat. It was exactly what I wanted. They built a pigeon mound. This was the first time they did work for me. I'd give them an A+.”

“I liked Laird Landscaping's workmanship and the quality of work that they did with the lighting. Their crew was good, and they were friendly and personable. They showed up on time, did the job that was expected, and were very thorough, neat, and clean. They've come back a few times and done a little additional work. I have been using them for three or four years. I found out about their service through a friend. I noticed their landscaping and asked who did it, they told me, and I made the call. I'd have to give them an A. I'd highly recommend them.”

“We really like Laird Landscaping. We have used them before and would use them again. I would give Laird Landscaping an A+ grade.”

“They did a good and effective job. Our backyard was flooding every time it rained, so now it doesn't flood. They put the leaf guards around the house, and that works well. I would say that my experience was a very positive one. My next-door neighbors had used them, so they referred them to us. My expectations were met. I think they did A+ work. We never had a problem.”

“They did a good job. I didn't have any issues once the work was done. I would give them the A+.”

“It was good. They came out here and did the job in one day. They put in some outside drainage. He worked with me designing the area. He came out, met with me—real nice guy—and did the work. He's professional, and his crew knew what they were doing. They had a foreman on the job, and the owner of the company came out too while they were doing the job. They get an A+.”

“They did what they were supposed to do. They put in a drainage catch and leveled the property off so it drained correctly. The quality of work was very good. I would use them again. They were just a local company. It was A+. I got a warranty for the services. I didn't have any problems.”

“Laird did my landscaping. They replaced plants. I was looking for a small business, and I found them. Their attention to detail was good. I would call them again. I'd give them an A.”

“We've used Laird Landscaping, and they do very good work. They put in a French drain system with catch basins, and they also fenced the backyard.”

“Laird Landscaping installed new landscaping at the front of my house. We're happy with them. They did a good job, they came on time, and we didn't have any problems at all. This was the only time that we've used them, but we may use them again. There were four workers doing the work. I didn't have to clean up behind them. I would give Laird Landscaping an A grade.”

“I was very happy with them. They did all outdoor stuff. They put in a yard drainage system for me, tied it into my house, cut some islands out of the lawn, and put in a gravel pathway. I will give them an A. I had a neighbor use them, and they did mostly good work.”

“They did the landscaping of the back and front yard. They definitely were professional. They knew what they were doing, and it turned out great. They did both planting and structural work—flowerbeds, walk work, and plants. I called them, they came out, gave us a quote, showed us the plan, and I went with them. I was involved in the planning, and they did it from scratch. I would grade them A.”

“We liked Laird Landscaping. Everything about it was good. The quality of work was good. We were pleased. I give them an A.”
