I had used them before for tree/shrub planting and had been pleased. But this year, they were adequate on planting a tree and seeding a lawn, but inferior on advice and followup relating to powerwashing hardscape. They powerwashed a flagstone walkway and steps (though I'd requested it, I think they should have advised me that flagstone should NOT be powerwashed, as I was later advised by a mason) and then failed on repairing/re-mortaring the stones they had loosened or chipped (the re-set stones came loose again). The crew also left a mess - dumping cement on my lawn and in the street in front of my house. In their favor, they are negotiating with me on a credit. So overall I am still recommending them.
