The work went great, We were just finishing the outside construction of an addition to our home, so the back yard was completely dug up and a mess. We met several times to discuss what we wanted and they worked well with us, adding good ideas and scaling back things we thought we could do ourselves. All said, in the front yard they dug up and removed some old large plantings, completely scraped th...

I didn't use American Gardens due to the cost of his work. His bid for installing a brick path was 3.5 times more than the next highest bid and 6 times more than the lowest bid. $20,000 is just way too expensive for installing a brick path in my yard. He's not affordable to the average/above average homeowner, even if they do quality work.

Description of Work
I was getting a quote to install a winding brick path through the yard. I did not hire due to his high price for the work to be done. Everything else about American Gardens seemed very professional.

Jerry was wonderful. He listened patiently to my litany of wants and managed to get my 90% of my wishes. The remaining 10% was due to my budget. He used as many existing plants as possible. Would definitely use them again. They're not the most inexpensive but the outstanding service makes up for it!!

Fabulous quality, team, and responsiveness. They charge a price premium but we think they are worth it with what is provided, our busy schedules and being new home owners. They always deliver top results. The team in particular is wonderful from management on down.

The initial consultation was in mid April for design ideas and estimate. A few days later I was supplied with a nice schematic, color photos of the plants that were to be installed and the estimate. The day of the actual installation had to be coordinated to avoid other work being done at my house that also involved a crew and multiple trucks but yet get the plants in the ground at the optimum tim...
