Landscape Charlie was recommended to us by some builders that we highly trust. The owner, Charlie Kraemer, is involved from day 1 with ideas all the way to final plant being put in. His design was something we had trouble visualizing so he followed up with more drawings and pictures. He stayed within our budget the entire way and would let us know if our additional ideas would take things over our agreement - no surprises. What sets Landscape Charlie apart from others we have worked with in the past is the constant communication and the professionalism of his entire crew. Communication: If his original schedule was adjusted he let us know. Our project was never left for a day or two and we felt that our project was the priority of his company. His crew worked hard, answered all my questions, and every night they cleaned up our backyard best possible so we did not have to look at a construction site during evening hours. Seems small, but with a dog and kids, having your yard usable to a point without worry was appreciated. One last item. After a few weeks of completion I was doing fall clean up and decided to use the mower to mulch leaves in a place I should not have. My mistake as I snipped the lighting cable that was buried. I left Charlie a text Sunday night letting him know that I screwed up and that we were counting on the lighting as part of Halloween decor throughout our yard (Halloween is big deal here). The next morning I look out and there is Charlie fixing the issue and charged me nothing. He knew we were in a bind and made it happen. This is my first Angie's List review because I expect quality service to be part of any process, but trust me when I say, Landscape Charlie goes above and beyond even the greatest expectations.
