Description of Work
Retaining wall, drainage and sod
Stephanie M.
Terrible! Trees and bushes (including three thriving dogwood trees) were removed that should have been left alone. The drainage work requested took two return visits to "fix" and it still looks abysmal. The pruning looked like they had no clue how a plant grows or how to make it pleasing to the eye and the yard is still not level in many areas with roots and rocks sticking up that were not removed and piles of loose soil that made for treacherous footing when dry and turned into mud when it rained. Vines were not removed by hand and ruined our huge holly bushes growing down the driveway. In addition, the holly bushes had numerous varieties of tree/bush(s) growing within the holly. That information should have been brought up by them and they should have asked us how we wanted it handled. The swale in our front yard was originally created by the truck that was carrying trees and debris from the back yard (which is on a hill) and was so overloaded they could not make it up the “driveway” of hardened dirt that was steeper. They drove through the back yard about ten feet from the house and bogged down. This caused the air conditioner drainage pipe to be exposed. Once they got free of that they proceeded around the house into the front yard and got stuck again. That is exactly where Cody decided to put our drainage swale. Pictures Fig 1 thru Fig 5 show our yard’s initial response to rain. The first time they came back they planted a dogwood tree (which is now dead) and two bushes to replace those they cut down. They did some work on the swale for drainage which was unsuccessful as well as reseeding so the yard was torn up again. They cleared out a natural area to the side of the house that was not done even though requested and "pruned" the trees. The second time they came back out, they installed a drainage grate so that the water would not collect at the end of the sidewalk in front of the house. The swale was made deeper and "reseeded and smoothed" the area. The swale now looks like Fig 7 picture. An area of lawn was gutted by them parking their equipment there every day and that was "fixed" by adding a minimum of dirt and spreading the mulch already there around which was not sufficient cover. The space still floods just not as badly as before (Fig 8). Last but certainly not least, they sprayed for weeds and managed to kill the majority of ground cover underneath (Fig 6). I would definitely NOT recommend Ames Landscaping for any landscaping, even basic yard work-(they can’t do basic mowing)-you need to have done.

Description of Work
Fixed drainage problem in front of townhouse, including drainage pipe. Also planted new shrubbery in front of the townhouse, spread mulch on 3 sides, laid timbers on the side of the unit, raised cement sidewalk to meet steps in front. |The work was substandard and I repeated requested for improvement. They returned several times to complete the job. The finished job does not look professional; looks like a sorry DIY project. Showing up when expected was a problem. I'd say they showed up about 60% of the time agreed upon. Cody was very nice and responded to my concerns except the last one. I took that to mean he wasn't coming back.

Service Provider Response

Hi [Member Name Removed], I am sorry you felt the work was substandard, and you felt we had to keep coming back to finish the job. However the reasons we had to keep coming back was for additional items you had asked for. We originally completed everything that was proposed. Your first request after we were completed was extending the pipe further. We originally ended it where we had discussed, to get it away from the house was all you were concerned about. However we came back and extended the pipe further. At no additional charge. Then you weren't happy with the texture or color of the shrubbery. Which was shrubbery that you had changed from the original proposal. We came out and replaced the shrubbery that you had specifically requested to be installed. Again at no additional cost to you. As for your last concern with the pipe needing more soil on it, we did add more soil on top of it (at no additional cost) however we cannot control the run off from a neighboring unit which is why the soil washed away, and why we originally stopped the outlet pipe in the first place.

Ames Landscaping Co was very good. I did not use them. They were able to provide some good recommendations however but I didn't use them. They are professional. They were timely in their response and a good quote though. Their price was about average compared to the 3 prices I got. I have them on my list for 3 quotes.

I had a quote from Ames Landscaping Co. They gave me an estimate on drainage pipes.

I was very happy with them. We decided to do part of the landscaping this spring and part of it in the fall. So we will have them come back in the fall and do the rest of it. They are doing a wonderful job. We took out plants and put in new ones and changed the layout. So they are doing that work for us. We also had a patio laid and a fire pit put in. They also fixed a drainage issue. It was more than just putting in plants. It was a large comprehensive design.

He is high quality, responsive, and comes when we expect him. The dry creek bed took 9 tons of stone, and workers brought in the stone by wheelbarrow, and dug it with a trencher. The dry creek bed looks very pretty! We had had other estimates and Cody was right in line with the other estimates. Cody brings some artistic sensibility to his work, which we appreciate.
Description of Work
He installed stone steps on an exterior slope. He also installed a dry creek bed to take care of a drainage problem.

We bought our house a little over a year ago. The house was vacant for some time and as a result the landscaping suffered from neglect. The project seemed overwhelming for us to take on. So we contracted with Ames to help clean up the landscaping and organize it. He pruned groups of Azaleas and thinned out the liriope into groups. He also limbed up numerous trees to raise the canopy in the front yard. Several new plantings were installed and a plant bed was created. We are extremely pleased with the result. Our front yard looks amazing with the liriope organized in the beds and the azaleas pruned. The front area feels so open now that the trees have been limbed back as well. The new plantings are beautiful and a nice touch in the area where the bed was created. I would highly recommend Ames. They were a pleasure to deal with and we could not be more pleased with the results.

Cody and his crew cleaned up our front yard area by removing overgrown plantings, pruning shrubbery, and limbing back the large trees.

We had a great experience! I first contacted Cody in March and he came out very quickly to do an estimate. The estimate included some additional services (installing a French drain and having downspouts routed into that), but he presented the estimate in such a way that we could choose to do some projects now and wait on others, which was important for us, since we couldn't afford to do everything right now. Once we scheduled service to be done, Cody kept up with us to let us know in advance when they planned to come, and when they had to postpone (landscaping being a weather-dependent service!). The job took only one day, as promised, and although they ended up replacing instead of just repairing the pipe, they did not charge us any more than was estimated. The work has had the desired effect of better draining our yard and driveway, so we no longer have a lake every time it rains. I was very pleased overall, and would recommend Ames Landscaping to anyone who needed drainage fixed, or had other landscaping issues.
Description of Work
The provider replaced a drainage pipe from a catch basin near the house to the road and replaced the catch basin with a larger one that included a sump pump. They installed the pump, which included some electrical work from the garage, and they reseeded the area that required digging with grass seed, putting in sod right by the catch basin.
