Ohio Mulch had a decent delivery charge, a reasonable price for bulk mulch, and delivered the product on time and to the correct spot in our driveway. They carry the Hershey's Cocoa Mulch, which smells divine and turns out to be very useful in the garden for organic material.
I can't say that Ohio Mulch is "special", but they did show up on time and carry good product so I'm giving them a "very good" rating.
Vaquero's is a great place. The food is decently priced and very tasty and comes out *fast*, and the margaritas are very yummy. The best part, though, is the staff. We go every weekend and take our two-year-old son, and everyone always stops to say hi to him and make him giggle. They are always willing to speak Spanish with the customers who are willing to try, and I've gained much confidence in my language skills just by going there often.
I dislike this business because of their lack of follow-through. We needed to build a fence around our property and contacted them based on a neighbor's recommendation. The estimator came out, spent a great deal of time with my husband working out what we needed, and told us we'd have an estimate within the week. Two weeks later, no estimate. After calling twice and leaving messages with the receptionist, we still received no answer. We ended up going with another company who actually sent back their estimate.
PROS: Seemed nice at first, got good recommendation from neighbor.
CONS: Never sent in the estimate and didn't return messages.
Lawn Solutions performs work for the homeowner's association in our neighborhood. They are always on time and friendly, and never cut corners in making our common areas beautiful. Their prices are reasonable. One of the things about landscaping in Columbus is that often the crew never shows up. I have NEVER had Lawn Solutions miss an appointment. Plus, they have gone above and beyond on many occasions, taking care of problems for residents and generally being a standup and top-notch company. I would recommend him to anyone.
Emily has been cutting my hair for over 2 years now, and I would never go anywhere else. She listens to me, understands what I want, and together we decide what kind of style will be best. She is great for long-term goals (she's kept me on my long-hair plan for over a year!) and fabulous color. Emily doesn't look like the average stylist, with her shock of purple and white hair, but she has a wonderful range of talent, from normal to downright wild. And she's nowhere near as pricy as those "chain" salon/spas!
