“PLM has done several projects for us. They completed a rock stairway, a rock wall, and a large covered patio for us. I also had them clean up some of the water features. They're very quick to respond, and they do a great job. I'd give them an A+. I've already recommended them to several people.”
“I've been working with them for years. They did a big landscaping project with a poolside living space. I like the reliability, consistency, and quality of work. I'd give them an A+.”
“They redid my whole backyard. They landscaped along the fence line, built me a new patio with flower beds around it, and redid some sprinklers. It's really nice. I'd give them an A+.”
“The tech did excellent work. I had an outdoor kitchen done, and they do seasonal color for me. The work was excellent—A+. I've recommended PLM.”
“It's excellent. I always recommend PLM. It was outdoor lighting.”
“They did some major work, planters with all stone and short little walls around it. They cut the stone by hand to fit in all around. There were two raised planters. It was all landscape, and then they fixed it with all great plants. I would give them an A+. We had no problem whatsoever. We had such a great experience; I don't know why we wouldn't recommend them.”
“We had a new pool put in and redid our entire backyard, so they redid 100 percent of the landscaping back there. They did not do the outdoor space, but they did build trellis that they attached to our fence and alongside the house for ivy to grow. I like the ease of working with them. They were timely and communication was great. They were willing to work within our budget. I'd give them an A+.”
“They did pool work, patio work, landscaping, and the fence. A little bit of everything. I thought they were very responsive and clean. Their crew was great, so everything was delivered as promised. I'd give them an A grade.”
“They did the work right the first time, that's always a pretty good thing. I actually used them a few times. They did our concrete around the pool and some water run-off control. I don't know the technical term for that. They did landscaping work several years ago, but not recently.”
“It was positive.”
“It was OK. He was a nice enough guy, kind of a matter-of-fact type gentleman. I was very satisfied with what they did. There was supposed to be a bit of follow-up, and as far as I know, I never got that follow-up. They were supposed to give me a quote on some French drains, and I never saw those. I asked about it one time, but I never really followed up. It's quite possible that they sent an email that I didn't see it or never brought it back to the house, but I never really got anything on that. I've juggled so many companies since I've moved in here. I think they may have replaced a sprinkler box.”
“I honestly don't remember what they did. It had something to do with my sprinkler system. I'd give them an A I guess. I never had any problems.”
“PLM does work for me. They are prompt. They are efficient. They perform like they're supposed to under their contract. They're doing lawn work for me. They have done outdoor living space work for me in the past, but they're not doing any right now. They were doing some work in the neighborhood, and they came highly recommended, so that's how I found out about them. I'll give them an A+.”
“PLM does an excellent job. I like their ability to set up a specific time and be there to fix the problem quickly. They usually do repair work for me. I found them because a friend of mine recommended them. They get an A grade from me.”
“PLM redid our front yard. They took out trees and put in whole new landscaping. Then they did a fence, a retaining wall in the backyard, a whole-new back patio and landscaping, and a drainage system. I think I first heard of PLM from Best Pick Reports. They're an A-grade company.”
“PLM did work in both in the front and backyard. In the backyard, they put in a pergola for me, and they put in lighting. They completely redid the landscaping in the back and the side yards. In the front yard, they also planted. I first heard of them from a publication, Best Pick Reports. I'd rate them as an A.”
“PLM was really easy to get in touch with. They were very thorough in the design plan they did, and they helped us with new ideas, picking plants, and that type of thing. They just did a really good job putting it all in. They've come back a couple times to follow up on some stuff that we had—plants that died or lighting that quit working. They'd check on it and fixed it right away. We had a one-year warranty on anything if anything died, and they've come back and replaced a few things when we've called them. There was a problem with one of the landscape lights that has a fifteen-year warranty on it, and two of them went out, came in right away, took them out, and replaced them. I'd give the company an A grade.”
“PLM did a really nice job, and we're really enjoying the work they did—enough that we've called them and asked them to come give us an estimate on some more work. They did a lot of stuff in our backyard. They built a pergola and did a lot of landscaping. I found the company initially through a neighbor they did work for. I'd give them an A.”
“The company was great.”
“I like everything PLM did, from the design to the installation. They even do our maintenance. It always looks great. They get an A grade from me.”
“I'd give PLM an A grade.”
“I'd give PLM an A for their service.”
“I've used PLM for years. They are efficient, punctual, and talented, and they do a great job. They installed my sprinkler system, redesigned my backyard, installed the pavers, and enlarged my back patio, and they are currently doing my weekly landscaping. They're very personable and responsive. I would give them an A rating.”
“PLM has been my landscaper for 20 years. They're honest, and they always do good work. I've always especially enjoyed working with one of the owners, Jon. They've done arbors, lighting, landscaping, rock work, patios, and fountains—they've done everything. I'd give them an A.”
“I'm very happy with PLM. They're great, and I liked their design—it was different and didn't look like everybody else's. They did my pool patio extension, and they earned an A.”
“They were fast, quick, and good. They helped my husband reconstruct the playground. I didn't have to call them back about any problems after the work was completed. They're good. I think they're A+.”
“I liked that they responded very quickly, were able to listen to my needs, and pulled together good plans and good implementation. I'd rate PLM as an A.”
“The guys from PLM came out right away, and they were able to diagnose the problem and fix it in a short amount of time. I'd give them an A.”
“PLM is dedicated, and they work personally with my needs. They deserve an A.”
“I liked that PLM did what they were supposed to do. I'd give them an A grade.”
“They were timely, they did what they said they were going to do, and they stayed within the cost range they quoted us. They get an A.”
“We've used PLM for several jobs, from small to large. They draw up plans to show you what it's going to look like, and they take your ideas into consideration. They will tell you why they're doing certain things. We had a retaining wall that led down to a creek, and the railroad ties were falling apart. We had them take out the whole thing. They didn't just put the new wall in, though. They said, 'You have to have proper drainage, or the water will just push that wall away. It's got to be built this way.' We really appreciated that. I'd absolutely give them an A.”
“They're very professional and easy to work with, and they have good design ideas. We had used them before on another property—I think the fact that we're repeat customers says a lot.”
“We started to use them about 20 years ago. They did a good job, so we will stick with them. PLM has earned an A.”
“PLM did work for my house. I had a pool put in, and they did all the sprinkler work at the house. Those guys were phenomenal. I was very impressed. Then, I had some other problems about six months later, so I contacted them, and they came right out and fixed it. It wasn't anything pertaining to what they did—it was just a new problem that arose, and they took care of it. I would give this company an A+, for sure.”
“I thought they were really high quality and responsive, and I enjoyed the personal service. I've been using PLM since last year. I call them a specialty firm. They did landscaping, the irrigation system, some stonework, and some concrete work on the deck. I thought the work was good quality. I'd give them an A, and I would use them again.”

PLM redid our entire backyard and installed an outdoor kitchen and a new arbor. They were great—friendly, hardworking people. The work was spot-on, just fantastic. I've already recommended them to several of my neighbors and friends.

PLM did a great job. We love it, and everybody who comes around also loves the deck they built, the stairs, and all that. Everybody's pretty impressed. It's excellent work.

They re-landscaped our backyard and put in a whole new patio, an arbor, and a fence. The craftsmanship was excellent. Everything was done in a way that showed real attention to detail.

When I moved in, the yard was pretty much a blank slate. They did stonework, planted three kinds of trees, and even did a water feature. It's still beautiful. I'm very happy with the work they did.

I am in love with PLM. They are just marvelous. We have planned this wonderful project with them, and we'll go ahead with the plans we made as soon as possible. I'm so impressed with them. We are committed to them.

PLM did landscaping for me, and their service was great. The quality of work that they do as well as the professionalism of all their workers is just wonderful. The work was finished in a very timely manner, and the cleanup was perfect, too. I would give PLM an A+ grade.

PLM landscaped our backyard—the whole backyard was gutted. The workers who came out were very nice, and the quality of the work they did was excellent. I would give them an A+ grade.

PLM replaced my grass and paved the east side of my house with stone. They also built a patio—there's not enough sunshine or sunlight there, so they opted to not use grass. It was a big job, but the workers were very good. They worked very hard and were very professional, and they finished the job within a reasonable amount of time. I'd give them an A grade.

I used PLM, and they took care of everything that I needed taken care of. They did my patio—extended it and put rock down. They get an A grade from me.

I think the first time we used them was probably seven or eight years ago, and the last job we did with them was good. PLM did a good job in a good amount of time. They put in a whole new backyard, including a deck, all new plants, a sprinkler system—everything. I would give them an A grade for that project.

PLM upgraded our patio, just redid the whole thing. They did concrete and pavers, and then they also did the landscaping. They were great. Everything turned out the way I wanted it to.

It was good. They did landscaping and hardscaping for me. They showed up on time. This would be a company that I would recommend to others to use.

PLM is my landscaper, and they've provided me with very good service. They did both our backyard project—putting in a patio—as well as our regular landscape maintenance. They're just a very accommodating and very responsive company.

They provided excellent service. When we had our swimming pool installed, we had them put in a pavilion and everything, and they did excellently for us. I'd recommend PLM.
