I came home today as was delighted to find that Jose came while I was at work and cut and trimmed my lawn. Even though I have not spoken with Jose since the season ended last October he remembered the details of how to do my lawn just the way I like it. He makes my lawncare worries disappear. Thank you Jose

The only feedback I have is next time just watch out for the pebbles around the trees in the back. The weed wacker kicks them up and has cracked the windows in the past. Other than that it is very well done!

As always, this landscaper did a great job. I call him the Outdoor Ninja because he's fast and gets in and out in a jiffy. Thanks for all you do, my family, and I appreciate you. Also, you left before I could give you your Christmas gift. Please let me know if you'll be around the neighborhood to pick it up. It's not urgent, just a small token of gratitude.

He did great! Only thing is I wish he would have trimmed the palm bush that is extending into the walkway. He did, however, say he would do it next week! He was very polite and professional. Glad we found your service.
