Overall I was very pleased with both the results and the whole process, from start to finish. I first contacted Jason Licsko through Angie's List on 5/1/2012, and he promptly replied the next day. We made arrangements for him to come out and look at the job on 5/5. He emailed back with his estimate of $2500 and 3 days on 5/8. He was ready to start earlier, but my wife and I wanted to be home when the work was being done, so we arranged for a start date of 5/29 right after Memorial Day. Jason had another complicated job that ran long, and he promptly let us know that he would have to reschedule our job because of it. We rescheduled the start date for 6/14 at 8:00 am. About 8:00 am on 6/14 Jason called ahead to let us know that they were running behind due to a flat tire on the loader and would be there at 9:00 am. Jason and his crew arrived at our house promptly on 6/14 at 9:00 am. They were very professional and friendly. The started with demolition of the deck, which went very smoothly, in spite of having to remove a bee's nest. The second day started with the demolition of the pool. Jason figured out a way to break up the concrete with the loader that did not involve bringing in a bunch of noisy jackhammers and was very efficient. They completed work on the pool demo the following morning. The excavation and grading was completed by the end of the 3rd day. Jason noticed that we had Bermuda grass, and made sure that the rhisomes from the Bermuda grass that had been dug up were distributed throughout the top layer of soil and that these would grow and fill in once they received water.They completed their work for the day by cleaning up and removing the debris that we had asked them to haul away. Initially, Jason was unable to complete the tree limb removal portion of the work as we had some poison ivy growing on the tree's trunk. When he was preparing to leave, we discussed this and he also mentioned that there was more debris to haul away from the pool and deck demo than he originally thought, although he was going to leave the price at $2,500. I offered to pay another $250 up front to offset the extra expense and to have him come back and do the tree limb removal. He agreed to this, and he came back on 6/23 to spray the Poison Ivy with Roundup, and then we waited for the poison ivy to die. I let him know when that had happened, and he came back on 7/25 to do the tree limb removal. We were very impressed with the results of the work that he did for us and the attention to detail. The Bermuda grass is filling in nicely just as he said it would, and the yard looks great. Jason was very easy to work with, was responsive and punctual, and always let us know what was going on and when there might be delays or potential problems. We also had looked at some pictures of his work on other jobs and discussed potential future work that we might have done. We were impressed with the aesthetics of the work that he showed us in the pictures. We would definitely consider having him come back to do other work for us in the future.
