“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.”

“I liked that they came on time, they gave me a quote, and they stuck to the quote. Actually, they came in a little lower than what they quoted me, which was great, and they completed it exactly on time that they said they would. They landscaped a pretty big area of my yard, took out some roots, and planted grass seeds. I would grade the overall experience with an A+. They did a great job. I've already recommended them. My neighbor has used them already.”

“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.”

“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.”

Review by

“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.”

“There were some things that I'd like to have them look at and repair, and hopefully they're going to take care of that. I'm sure they will. They put a front walk in for me and some landscaping. I'd give them a B.”

“I thought the planning work was very thought-out. I was happy with their execution. I have no complaints. They provided landscaping work for me, pretty much all my different garden areas. They leveled out the land. They added deer-resistant shrubbery. They get an A.”

“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.”

“It was good. They did driveway landscaping for us. I'd give Cider Mill an A.”

Review by

“We  had a totally overgrown area behind our office. It wasn't terribly wide, three or four feet in depth, and the entire length of our building was overgrown with weeds. It was really a mess and it had bushes that had been growing wild all summer. They pulled everything out, put down a weed matt, and covered the matt with medium sized stones. It really looks great. I thought it was an A+ experience. I thought they did a great job. It really was a nice quality of work and that's what the job was. It was about quality of work. They could have been sloppy about it and not covered all of the matt. They could have not made the stones thick enough. They were very, very nice and whatever I asked them to do. There was another small area that I asked them to do with it and they did. They were very cooperative, thoughtful, and tidy. Except for the fact that the back looks so much better, you wouldn't even know they were there. I would highly recommend them. In fact, they are coming back to do some further work for me. I like them allot.”

“Two jobs were completed, a small job of landscaping the front of the house, in the range of 1,2-1,4 dollars, and then a brick walkway for 4,2 dollars. It was certainly very satisfactory, and very good. I would give them an A. In cleanliness, there was a little bit of stuff left.”

“They said they were going to cut down one of my trees and they still haven’t done it. I've called them back a couple times to remind them. I would say A, with the exception that I'm hoping they come back and cut down the tree they are supposed to cut.”

Review by

“The landscaping person hasn't been out here in a long time. I did have questions, because some of it is growing right over the walkway, where you go into the house. I didn’t know it was going to get that big. I'd give it a B. Great customer service. The guy was very nice, very professional.”

“Cider Mill did a very substantial landscaping job for us. I had a connection through previous work that their predecessors had done. They’re A+, and the heads of the company are excellent to work with. The team worked very well. Josh, the team leader, worked especially good.”

Review by

“What made the experience positive was their willingness to work with the customer—their flexibility and partnership. They did a bunch of landscaping and resodding most of the backyard. I asked a few neighbors and got testimonials about the company that way. I would refer them to friends and family myself. I'd rate them as an A-.”

“Cider Mill Landscapes has done a phenomenal job for us. We were having an issue with our pool in the back, and this would have been the fourth time we've had the concrete replaced. Eric was the consultant who came out. He was prompt and thorough, and he came up with a plan for what we would do around the pool, plus the landscaping. I liked his honesty. When they said they would be there, they were there, and the quality of the work was very good. They designed our backyard really well. We put down special slabs. We had the whole of the back redone, and it cost us a lot of money. We spent more than $100,000. Then, we had to get our pool redone by another company, and Eric recommended people to us. They did the hardscaping, and then they put an outdoor kitchen in the back for us. We had all the repairs done, and we redesigned the backyard. They arranged for the back lines, electricity, and everything for the kitchen. The total cost was $150,000 with everything, and they did a great job. I've had lots of compliments, and we're very happy with them. A couple trees died, and they came in the next spring and replaced them. They've been a good firm to work with. I'd give them an A.”

“They were very good. He killed a bunch of grass and then replanted with periwinkle and some bushes and put in a Belgium block border that I wanted. He came back afterward and then I had him remove a couple of old bushes. He lowered his price when he wound up having to do less than he thought so I thought it was good. they were very neat. They told me when they were coming. They left everything finished. They came back as planned, but what they did, they did it all in one shot. I would give them an A+.”

Review by

“They're great guys. They have planted dozens of trees. They have done lawn work. They have done drainage work for me. They have chopped down trees. They have added bushes. They've done landscaping. They were easy to deal with. They were honest and their work was always of high quality, and if I didn't like something, they made it better. There haven't been any issues at all. I've referred them to many people and enjoy them. I would give them an A+.”

“Cider Mill designed and built our patio, which includes a stone surface area, large stone surround, a pergola with overhead lights, a fan, power outlets, a stone fire pit, a cast stone-like fountain, and three stone walkways. We especially liked the design and workmanship. Plus, the Cider Mill staff were professional and fun to work with. They listened carefully to what we wanted and made our dream patio come true.”

“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”

Review by

“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.”

Review by

“They did a great job. It was great service at great prices. They did everything that they promised they were going to do, and they did everything when they said they were going to do it. They were reliable and dependent, and they just provided great, quality service. They did landscaping, and they also did light design on the house. The thing that really stood out with the customer service was their reliability and dependability. They went over everything with us before the job and did everything exactly the way they said they were going to do it. They did some work for me a few years ago, so I just called them back to have some more work done. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
02/22/2016

“I liked the design that they laid out and the way they completed the job quickly, efficiently, and well. All they did was landscaping, but I might have them come back and do more. They were giving my neighbor a quote, and I went over and grabbed him. They get an A grade.”

Review by

“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.”

“It was positive.”

Review by
02/15/2016

“I did feel like they were very expensive. I felt like they—maybe it's just because I know them well. I know one of the owner's sisters very well. I felt like they put my job off. I told them when I wanted them to come and it was, 'We're kinda busy, kinda busy, oh we'll come do it now.' I don't know if it's because I had a relationship with the owner's sister so they felt like they could do that but that was my only complaint. The work they do is fantastic. They do beautiful work. But I felt like customer service-wise they had stuck to their schedule a little bit more. They did landscaping, soft-scaping plants and yard cleanup and that kind of stuff. I'd give them a B.”

Review by
02/15/2016

“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.”

Review by
02/15/2016

“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.”

Review by
02/15/2016

“They're terrific. They've done everything from pruning to planting new trees to mulching. I would say the trees 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.”

Review by
02/15/2016

“They were very responsive; they always got back to me in regards to any questions I had. I think one thing died, and they came to replace it. There were no problems with that. They installed outdoor lighting for me as well, and after three years, some things had broken. I called them, and they came and made repairs. There was a charge for repairing because it was wear and tear, but they came, and it was easy. I'd give them an A-.”

Review by

“Cider Mill is absolutely amazing. The quality of their work is unbelievable, and they stand behind everything they do. They did a beautiful walkway and some planting. They used three types of stone, and I get compliments every time someone comes to my house. I shopped around, and Cider Mill was the most impressive, which is why we went with them. They’re A+.”

Review by
02/11/2016

“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.”

Review by
02/11/2016

“They did a landscape installation for me. They were someone that my landscape architect had heard about. Some of the workers were great, most definitely, and pretty responsive too if I had a question or needed something to be put down. They were generally pretty responsive. I would give them between a C and a B. Average. There were goods and bads. There were some things I was not really psyched about and other things I was thrilled about. I'd give them a B-.”

Review by
02/11/2016

“They just moved some pachysandra from one place to the next and took out some tree stumps. I heard about them through the Community Arts Center in Wallingford. I'd give them a B+. They were friendly. It took them a while to get here. That's why it's not an A+ but a B+, but they were good enough.”
