Reviews Master Gardeners in Chicago

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.

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!

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.

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.

My husband and and I love a beautiful garden but we are not gardening enthusiasts. When it came time this year to redo the garden beds in the front of our home, we contacted Mary DiCarlo of In&Out Designs. We could not be more please with Mary and the quality of her services. She came to our home, listened to our needs, and developed a plan that satisfied our desire for beauty without high maintenance requirements. The time from first visit to garden installation was timely. Mary is very personable and knowledgeable and helped to make a project that was originally quite intimidating for us very enjoyable. We are looking forward to enjoying her design and our garden for years to come.

I had Mike out two times in two years to help me design my perennial gardens both in the front yard and all along the perimeter of our back yard. Each visit was $100. Mike took the time and great care to listen to what I wanted and then spent a bit of time looking over the gardens and coming up with a beautiful sketch. He detailed what plants to put together to have a balanced garden all season long. I have been enjoying putting these gardens together and they look great.

We had used another Janitorial service for our lawn care for our condo building but have just decided to use Italian Gardens exclusively for our lawn and garden as well as our snow removal this winter. BTW- I had another janitorial service out to give us a quote and he told me THEY use Italian Gardens to sub contract out their snow removal! We have used Italian Gardens over the years to do our clean up and they have always done an outstanding job at a very reasonable price.

Marguerite Gardens Florist

They have quite a large operation. Marguerite, the owner of the company, has a couple of different locations because she has a garden shop as well. She also recommended a guy for my sprinkler system. The first time that they came out and did my garden was many years ago. They come out and do house visits. They access your garden and see what you need. They will open and close your garden for the winter and the summer and do the fertilization and plant your bulbs. They will do everything. They are really great. I am a gardening dummy and she treats me with total respect and gives me a say in what goes in my garden. She really looks at how much you want to maintain your garden and what you want to do. She does not make decisions for you which is very nice. They are also very prompt. Her crew is extremely pleasant and efficient. They always arrive on time and they are done usually earlier than you expect them to be and then they follow up and make sure that everything goes okay.

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: It went great! Last summer, I worked with Pete, one of Gary's designers, on a plan for the sunny back yard of our recently-purchased bungalow. Pete is great. He listened, "got" me, offered true expertise and creativity and arrived at a wonderful design. Installation was seamless, the plant quality (a tree, bushes, perennials, annuals) was outstanding, and the results were thrilling. We therefore hired Gary's again this year, this time to install stone edging around the beds and add annuals to the . All beautiful! Gary's is great company and Pete is a pleasure to work with. We will look no further for all future landscaping needs. Highly recommended!

Recent Review: Mak is my go-to!! He’s helped me out with a few projects (balcony repairs, garden start up, hanging a tv&art…) and he’s always great to work with. Responsive, innovative, and efficient. 10/10! I don’t use anybody else! (The bonus is—he also taught my 6mo old puppy to catch a frisbee.)

Morton Grove, IL

Recent Review: They did a fantastic job...I would use them again, except we moved away from their area. One minor complaint is that they were so busy, it took a long time to get the work scheduled and done. Be sure you get a hold of them early, but it's worth it. The job was well done and they cleaned up after themselves beautifully.

Recent Review: Doug Taylor had designed our neighbor's garden. At our request, he came and talked to us about our front and back gardens which needed to be totally replaced as did the sidewalks. He had some wonderfully creative ideas. He presented us with designs and was very amenable to changes to suit our needs/tastes. He advised on a company to do the cement sidewalks. Then in early autumn, he took me to the nursery to select individual plants. In October, he came with a crew and planted the shrubs and flower beds. They blossomed this spring and are lovely. By-passers stop and comment on them. Only one plant died over the winter and he will replace it. We couldn't be happier and will continue to use Greenstone for consulting on upkeep, etc.

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!!

What do customers in Chicago say about Hire Master Gardener?

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.
