I signed a contract with Pablo Mendez from Affordable Landscaping. Contract was $200 flat fee for unlimited snow removal and salting of my driveway as needed (over 3 inches of snow). Pablo came the first 2-3 times it snowed and then just stopped coming. I texted and called him several times to try to restart the service, but he never answered the phone and he never returned my calls. He just walke...

He was supposed to provide snow removal service for my driveway, but consistently failed to do so.

He did a very poor job to begin with and then when we had the biggest blizzard in 20 years he did not show up at all!!! I called him late afternoon when the snow had stopped. He said he would be there overnight and that my husband would be able to get to work. He never showed up!! Now he won't even answer his phone at all. He's a very unreliable crook. I paid him in advance for the entire season. ...

Similar to comments from other members, we simply got the impression that Affordable Landscaping took on more clients than they could handle in a prompt fashion. When they first came out to give us an estimate, they were extremely responsive and even promised to come out to lay down salt in advance of storms that were supposed to generate ice (though they NEVER actually did this all winter). While...

They have been a challenge to say the least. They don't show up sometimes, we have had to make numerous phone calls throughout the winter, and worst of all, one morning we woke up to a snow plow being driven on our sidewalk. They ripped up the grass. They are nice, but they just haven't been doing a good job at all.

Description of Work
We hired Affordable Landscaping to maintain the sidewalks and back deck stairs during the winter. They seemed affordable and were responsive.

Very disappointed with their service. They cannot handle the job. They don't do a thorough job when they show up. I ended up calling them every other time to remind them to clear the driveway. I would not recommend this company at all. Every time I called, they gave me nothing but excuses such as they're up all night clearing the snow for the rest of their clients, their equipment broke down, etc....

Description of Work
We signed a snow removal contract for the season. The company was suppose to remove the snow, ice, and apply some salt on the sidewalk. This company is almost late every time it snow, as late as 1 day and a half. I have to call several times to find out if they're coming or not. They have all kinds of excuses every time I called. They don't have what it takes to handle the job. Their price was very reasonable but it's not worth the hassle.

They do about satisfactory work. Maybe they did not anticipate the frequency of snow this season, but they were quite late for the removal and did not do thorough job. Considering how late they get to my house (after day and a half on one occasion ) it probably is not worth the service.

Jessica and Pablo are absolutely great. They are easy to work with, and do a beautiful job in maintaining our yards. The only issue (which I consider a very minor one) is that they don't always stick to the schedule (I was initially slated for Fridays, but they sometimes come out on other days), but that's not too problematic for me. Overall, I've enjoyed working with them for the past several months and will continue to do so!

Description of Work
For spring cleanup services ($45) on our 20 x 20 backyard and 10 x 15 front yard, they pulled up all the vegetation on 3 small plots, trimmed the bushes, mowed 4 inch high grass, created channels for our gutter runoffs, power aerated our exposed patches of soil, and took care of the weeds on our front/back lawn and in the cracks of my patio. For my biweekly lawn maintenance ($10/cut), they mow the front and back lawn, trim the bushes and clean up the few fallen leaves and weed around our property. We added fall clean-up ($5 extra) since we have 3 large trees on our property and an enormous amount of fallen leaves. We are also using their snow removal services ($150 prepaid for the entire season) which includes shoveling of driveway and all entrances to home, salting, and cleaning off our cars.
