This company is no longer in business as far as I can tell. Does not return calls or e-mails, sign at the business painted over, no staff. (early June, 2018)

Description of Work
general lawn care and sprinkler maintenance

Category lawn service,lawn treatment



No show, no call. When I called them to see where they were, they said they couldn't find my home so they went on to the next call and couldn't come back. I had to reschedule for another day. I'm really disappointed they couldn't have just called me when they couldn't find my house. I took a day off work to get this done and now have to waste another day of vacation. Just aggravating. I am having ...

Gary Garles did an excellent job of translating our desires into a very beautiful landscaping job. We love the trees, the patio is amazing, we have raised gardens built with blocks that look great. His selection of plants is great. I would recommend Gary to anyone who wants quality work done.

Planted 18 trees in the fall of 2014. Developed a landscaping plan including planters, large patio, several plants all around the house.

Lenc responded quickly to my email, and scheduled a visit to discuss the work a few days later. They were punctual and personable, and said I'd have a quote within a week. The quote has never come, and I had someone more eager for my business do the work.

Description of Work
I requested a quote for restoring my front lawn and landscaping in front of my house after having my sewer line replaced.

The overall quality of their work was excellent. Their timeliness and responsiveness were good. I thought their pricing was a bit high, but we liked their design best. I believe the workers could've been more careful with their equipment while working, as they wore an undesired path down my sideyard while moving stone and fill. Overall, I would use them again - but I'd also get other bids and cons...

Description of Work
Bob Lenc provided a well-developed design and good recommendations for the raised-bed garden we desired.

They were unknowledgeable and unprofessional. They said they were going to work up a plan and get back to me. I have never heard from them since.

Description of Work
Two of their employees came out to talk with me about the work I wanted done.

Had a person come out in April to give an estimate. They never contacted me back although I called to follow up multiple times .Decided that if scustomer service was this bad prior to getting estimate that this was someone I did not want to deal with.

We had a couple of meetings with Jeff; we told him what we are looking for in terms of color and ease of care. He drew up a plan and we went over it again. We cut down on the number of perennials, to save on costs. The morning the work started, Jeff came over with 3 laborers, he marked where every plant was supposed to go, etc, etc. The laborers knew what to do, were very polite and cleaned up aft...
