Over the winter of 2014 we moved into a single family home in northern VA with a good sized lawn and hedges / bed areas. Due to work / travel schedule we knew we would need to look to a landscaping company to refresh the look of the property and provide regular turf management. In years past I had used a patchwork of different providers on different seasons at our previous residence (also Northern VA), and wanted to find one company that could do all the components under one contract. I contacted four different companies to provide estimates. In looking at the estimates, it seemed to me that J and J had really looked at the property, and made good recommendations for work based on our property, type of hedges and trees, and current condition of the lawn and bed areas. Some of the other estimates looked more cookie cutter, and in communicating with the various providers over phone / email I further got the sense that J and J had provided and estimate that best matched the needs of the property. So far, J and J has competed a Spring Cleanup consisting of weed and leaf removal, pruning, mulching, and establishing a dug edge to define turf from bed areas. They are also mowing weekly and operating a fertilization / weed control schedule. The Spring Cleanup was a good sized job, and we are really happy with the results. Their crew was out for three days at our property and did an outstanding job. They hand-dug the edge area between the turf and bed areas, and it looks great. The pruning and mulching has made a big improvement on the hedges / shrubs. I have had the opportunity to communicate with Mr. Jones, their operations manager who completed the estimate and has been the primary point of contact, Mr. Derrington, who founded J and J, and the crew who came to our home to do the Spring Cleanup. They have all been knowledgeable, responsive, and professional. Mr. Jones in particular has been really helpful in setting up the work specific to the needs of the property. If you are looking for a comprehensive landscaping company that can do regular mowing, a fertilization / weeding program, and landscaping, and want to support a local northern VA business, from our experience we 100% recommend J and J.
