FOLIAGE FANTASIES

Although I explained what I wanted, Laury Lewis totaled ignored me. He planted what he wanted to plant in the very expensive boxes he talked us into. He dropped off 25+ bags of potting soil and left them in a pile on my deck for weeks. I had to clean up after him every time he came to do some work. The window boxes were expensive because they supposedly have unique drainage systems. I had to replace all of the soil in all of the boxes this spring because it wouldn't dry out because the boxes don't drain out excess water. I have called the master gardener three times this spring to have him check the boxes, but he has yet to return my calls. He truly does not know what he is doing and is inconsiderate at best. His prices were outrageous particularly given the service you don't get from him.

They never gave me a written proposal, which in retrospect was a mistake for both of us. There was no negotiation up front. I accepted the price she gave me, even though it was higher than another bid I had gotten. But she seemed to know about plants, and I was looking to establish a relationship with a company that did more than just "blow and go". It turned out that I thought things were included that weren't. I thought trimming the boxwoods was included. It wasn't. Everything I asked about was an additional charge. I understand that she should charge for add ons, but everything felt like nickel and dimming. I asked if they would take a big pot to the alley, a 15 second walk. Paula said she would have to charge me for that. I was looking for a company who would go the extra mile (in this case 1/8 of a block). At the end, we did a walk through and there were a variety of things that she said they would do that they didn't. After I pointed them out, they addressed each one, but there was tension and it was getting uncomfortable. At a certain point I just wanted them to leave. The lawn still has dandelions and other weeds. They charged $250 for that and I didn't feel that I should have to point out every dandelion and other weeds that they missed. I didn't feel that they were professional, and I would not recommend them.

Joni does a great job with picking plants that are low maintenance and that come back year after year. I have referred her to many friends and she has made their landscaping a show stopper. She takes pride in her work and during this pandemic we should all be helping small businesses.

Serena is a terrific gardener and a very hard worker. She has helped design, install and maintain a garden in my large yard. Her ideas are inspirational and very economical. She charges a fair price for her work and earns every penny of it as she tirelessly maintains the garden.

Maureen and I began emailing in February, but the weather delayed our first meeting, as there needed to be no snow on the ground for her to see my garden space. Once she arrived, she listened to what I liked, what I currently had in my garden and we brainstormed ideas. We walked to two gardens in the area that I liked and talked about them in relation to mine. Maureen asked great questions and took photos, telling me she would send me a garden plan within two weeks. True to her word, I received an amazing garden plan!

VirgilI and his team did an outstanding job at my home. Garden beds were grossly over grown with weeds and ground cover. (New Home) my yard looks better now than the photos the realtors had from last spring. Pea Gravel installed along side of house, bushes and King Hydrangea trimmed back, reserved some areas we had mulch pulled from. Everything looks great. Will definitely recommend and look to use for future projects.

Joe and Tony Landscaping LLC
5.0
Excellent - Design Service, Installation, Craftsmanship and Customer Service. From a farmyard to a beautiful back garden and patio. When we bought our house we inherited an unkempt back garden with poor drainage that became a mucky mess every time it rained. Dan from Joe and Tony Landscaping helped us transform our garden into a functional and beautiful outdoor space. Dan was experienced and knowledgeable and when he came to look at the garden he listened to our requirements and took the time to walk us through his recommendations for our garden. Within a day we had a drawing, video and pricing for the project - the plan was excellent and beautiful. Once we had decided to move forward - Dan's crew of landscapers came in and transformed the garden with ease and professionalism. They had all the machines and resources needed to complete the project in the shortest time frame possible and we are beyond thrilled with the patio and landscaped garden we have now. The project included the installation of proper drainage and the grading of the entire space. Our back garden and patio are beautiful, it was well worth the investment and we would recommend Joe and Tony Landscaping to anyone considering a landscaping project.

Recent Review: Wonderful. I got a lot more for my money compared to other contractors. Great service, great ideas! JD, the owner, was on site and working with the crew. He was flexible with regards to tweaking the plan. My yard and house have been renewed. Very, very happy with the results. Definitely recommend.

Recent Review: Gary responded promptly to my call and met with me to discuss plans for my patio/garden area. We came up with a plan and his terrific and very hardworking crew, led by Javier, did an excellent job of leveling the patio area and re laying the bricks. I selected the plant material at a local nursery (plant material is not included in the price listed) and Gary's crew picked it up and delivered it to my home. After removing a mess of buried tree roots and amending the soil, the crew, again led by Javier did a wonderful job on the installation. Gary was consistently available to me either on the phone or in person as the job progressed. After the plantings were completed Gary, at my request, put together an excellent lighting plan and will install the lights when they arrive. I have used this company many times and am consistently pleased with their personal attention and professional work. Gary always has extremely good crews which is one of the things that I feel sets his company above other landscape companies.

The fact that the company is located in the neighborhood made everything easier. We wish we had contacted Anne Roberts Gardens years ago! We will for sure use her for any future garden related projects.

Recent Review: Garden is refreshed and looks great. Paula met with me on a prior date to discuss our condo garden needs. She was respectful of my requests and offered her expertise as appropriate. She came for the work date and made sure the project was complete. We have worked with this group before and even though we verbally discussed prices, I do recommend getting the potential costs in writing. The crew worked with great care around the current plants, added the new plants, and completed all the tasks needed professionally. Very satisfied! Definitely recommend!!
