“Hillary was extremely creative and totally pleasant to work with. The guys that she brought to do the work were careful and knowledgeable in my garden. It was an excellent experience. They were doing a fall cleanup. I would give them an A+.”

“The results were fantastic and the process was also great. They did landscaping and other kinds of yard services for me. I would give Cider Mill Landscapes an A+ for the experience.”

“Cider Mill built a boulder wall for me. I'd say the customer service is excellent. The quality of their work was outstanding. They delivered on time. They get an A.”

“It was awesome. They went above and beyond. For instance, they planted grass seeds after they were finished with areas that they hadn't even been near. They saw that the grass was a little spotty, so they threw some seed down. That wasn't expected and that wasn't part of the work. They were really good at communicating. At the end of the project, they threw in some extra plants. It was really, really nice. I would grade the overall experience with an A. I already have recommended them to a friend.”

“They did the job, it looks great, it did what we wanted it to do, and the guy was very personable and helpful. We had a hill on the side of our property that every time it rains, the dirt washed out of it down onto the driveway and we were looking for something to keep that intact. And he put down a netting underneath of it to hold the dirt and he put a little berm at the top of that netting to keep the water from coming down. It was all very positive and it seems to have done a good job. I think I'd give them an A. I was satisfied, definitely. I would recommend them.”

“I liked that they showed up and did the work. They did a tree removal and did some landscaping. I would grade the overall experience with an A.”

“They worked very hard, they tackled a number of standing problems with dead trees, and they cleaned out a lot of things that needed to be done. I'd say they were a competent landscape firm. I would grade them an A. They were doing cleanup, they saw all these problems and took care of it.”

“I liked that they were very responsive and responsible. When they said they would come, they came and worked hard. They cleared out the yard in preparation to do the landscaping. I'm going to still be using them. I would grade the overall experience with an A.”

“They planted some trees and some bushes for me. He was very helpful with the design. He came to the house a few times, which helped. I'd give them an A.”

“It was easy to work with them. I liked the communication between the project manager and myself. They completed the work that they said they were going to complete in a quick manner. They were actually doing removal of some landscaping bushes and that type of thing. I'd give them an A. They were on time.”

“Cider Mill did a great job. We had a totally overgrown area behind our office. They pulled everything out, put down a weed mat, and covered the mat with medium-sized stones. It really looks great. They were very, very nice, and whatever I asked them to do, they did. They were very cooperative, thoughtful, and tidy. I would highly recommend them, and they are coming back to do some further work for me. It was an A+ experience.”

“They showed up on time, and they really tried to make me happy and give me what I wanted. I really liked them, and I would use them again. They did landscaping and a little bit of hardscaping. They installed some stone going down the driveway. I called them for an estimate and just decided to go with the guy. The company gets an A from me.”

“They did some landscaping in the front of the house and in the back of the house. The company gets an A- because I didn't like all the plants they put in. They seem like they're going to fix it up and change that this spring. I wasn't happy with the plants, but the crew, the owner, and the manager were wonderful. They're great people.”

“I do tree work, and they do landscaping, and I've had them do work for my customers. The customer service has been pretty good. They've done landscaping and planting work for me as well as cleanups.

“Eric, from Cider Mill, was personally involved in our planning new landscaping areas and rejuvenating older ones. His suggestions were very good, and he considered our budget. His installation team did excellent work and totally cleaned up at the end of the job. Cider Mill has returned each year for maintenance work. The personal involvement of Eric and his team makes all the difference. He is easy to get a hold of and responds to questions in a timely manner.”

“Cider Mill designed, executed, and maintained our large property, keeping it in exhibition shape. They interfaced with irrigation, mowing, raking, and other providers ancillary to their forte, relieving us of a big chore. All personnel were hard working and friendly—they took care to take care. Suffice it to say, they are thorough professionals”

“They're terrific. They've done everything from pruning to planting new trees to mulching. I would say they'rees to mulching. I would say it's sort of the gamut. They have terrific people who come out. You have the same people each time, and that really is nice, too, because you don't feel like you have to be there telling them what to do each step of the way. I'd give them an A.”

“They were very professional and very pleasant, and they did great work. They did hardscaping, masonry, and landscaping for me. They were very highly communicative and always on time with their concepts and information. I saw another job that they'd done for a designer, so I chose them. I would grade them as an A.”

“We've used Cider Mill Landscapes for the past couple years. They've got great customer service, they're quick to respond to emails or phone calls, and they do a great job. They clean up when they're done. I really haven't had any problems with them, so I would recommend them. They pretty much redid the front of the house, and they do the mulch every year. They put in perennials, annuals, and a new bed. They also did put some edging around a bed. They're an A.”

“They pay personal attention to the customer's needs, and they don't make it feel like a business. It felt like friends hanging out and helping other friends. They're in charge of designing all the beds and doing the maintenance for the beds. They've also done accent lighting, masonry work, and plantings—a little bit of everything. I'd give them an A grade.”
