I highly recommend the company and plan to bring him back for additional projects, including specialty maintenance in the future. Employer and his crew were on site for several weeks, well mannered and hard working, even in the heat and humidity of the summer. They were on time, kept an ordered worksite and cleaned-up at the end of each day. Because my dogs also use the yard, i trusted them to keep the gates shut and they did so, without complaint. The owner / crew leader prepared the design for this project, coordinating that design and the cost proposal with the general contractor and me, the owner. He took the time to walk me through his design, answering questions patiently and with excellent knowledge. He took my recommendations into account and when not appropriate, explained his reasoning carefully and with respect. He also coordinated the project through the contractor, arborist and irrigation professionals so scheduled work went as planned. At the close of each day, the owner also let me know when he would be returning. I also appreciated his rapport with the crew members, working along side them, but as their boss. I highly recommend The Great Outdoors for professionalism and price. A very fine operation.
