My husband wanted to cut the middleman out of buying the landscaping materials for our backyard renovation, so we found Western Materials through a friend. Western Materials has just about any of the landscaping items you could ever want - gravel, stones, mulch, bark, etc. We were able to custom pick our materials and get exactly what we needed. We also saved a bunch and discovered a whole new vendor we plan on using again for our front yard. Side note - the people at Western Materials were incredibly helpful to us and told us in advance what measurements to bring so we knew how much to buy. It was obvious they are customer service oriented.
Rapid Plumbing was certainly that when my kitchen sink had a clog. I was getting ready to prepare food for a family weekend when the drain started acting up. Rapid Plumbing was at my door within 60 minutes and fixed the drain in even less time. Great service.
We were looking at installing venetian blinds in my husband's study and found Arjay's Window Fashions through a friend. They have a wide assortment of window coverings to choose from, but the venetians were our favorites. The salesperson who came to the house for the measurements was efficient and made the process very easy.
We were referred to Ken Green Landscaping for a solution to our watering needs and problems. It seems to me we were wasting so much water with our current irrigation system, there had to be a better way. With water costs getting higher each year, we knew we had to do something. Ken Green was able to offer us a few solutions that would maximize our watering without the waste we currently have. They were very knowledgeable and gave us the information we were looking for.
When I was cleaning out the back room, I noticed a trail of ants that lead to the backyard. I contacted AA Same Day Exterminators to come out and take care of it, but they weren't able to come out until the next day. I can live with some ants, but the reason I chose them was for the same day service. I contacted another company and was able to get the problem resolved.
We have been enjoying the services of Superior Tree Care ever since we started using them for the 8 trees we have in our backyard. Superior has us on a schedule where they come in and trim the trees and do normal inspections to make sure they are healthy. We love our trees; they provide shade and depth to our backyard and we are so appreciative of Superior's care and attention. They have always been a pleasure to work with and are very responsive to any suggestions we may have.
Frank's Landscaping offered us a whole host of options when it came time to consult with them for our back yard. I'm having a gardening shed installed and wanted to get a head start on the landscaping portion to get the color scheme worked out. Frank's gave us a lot of suggestions on how to reformat the backyard and maximize the area we had without too many hardscape changes.
After our long time landscapers started falling down on the job, we started looking at alternatives. A&S Landscaping was one of the companies I contacted to interview, who never bothered showing up for our appointment! They didn't call or leave a message. My husband was incensed since he took time out of his day to meet with them. I was annoyed that they flaked out after I had reconfirmed with them the day before. When I contated them later in the day, they apologized and offered to come back out the next day. They lost their opportunity with us.
I consulted with Kirby's Handyman Home & Garden Service for the construction of my gardening shed. I didn't want one of the pre-fabs I had found and was looking for something custom to my wishes. Kirby's was very attentive and actually drew up the plans for my dream shed. My husband asked that I get a few more designs to make sure this is what I wanted, but so far, Kirby's is at the forefront.
Jin's Landscaping has been doing our lawn for years, but recently, they appear to be slacking off. Whenever I ask for something to be done, they are always right on it, but it seems within a few weeks, things go back to the way they were. My husband is getting very frustrated that I have to keep asking for things that should be standard, so it's probably time to look for someone new.
