I couldn't be happier! There was no non-sence about the quote (other companies were very vague in their quotes). I was expecting there to be water damage that would need extensive repairs - and they could have just told me that - but these guys were honest, professional workers. Although they recommended their own custom door (which I now wish i had gone with), they were willing to let me take advantage of a sale at Lowe's and even picked up the door on the morning of the assignment. In fact, I was supposed to have called them to make final arrangements about the door pick-up and arrival time - but I completely forgot due to an unusually busy week - But guess what - the president of the company called me the night before to confirm arrangements, which helped keep everything on schedule without any glitches! I expected additional cost for materials needed to complete the work, but was pleasantly surprised by such a minimal amount. They had to buy a full roll of aluminum, but they only charged me for the amount used on my project - that means a lot to a customer to feel like the company has my best interest at heart. They took care of some minimal damage and replaced the door with better trim and such so that it would be water tight going forward. Randy was especially particular about doing the job right and he works to very high standards. His assistant John was a diligent worker and stayed on task. They cleaned up everything before leaving. I can't say enough about how satisfied I am that I went with Craftsman Direct. I will use them on any future work and will be recommending them to friends and neighbors.
Pleasant Green Grass provides responsible, responsive, and high quality natural lawn and yard services with individually tailored solutions and lots of backup support and customer communication. I was impressed and pleased at every step this past fall as my requests for evaluation and service were responded to immediately, and the follow up work was done to high standards of thoroughness and attention to detail. There is a field staff and an office staff, and all cared and payed attention to my particular needs, adjusting service and timing according to the weather and my yard's condition at the time and answering my questions promptly. They even sent someone out to show me how to water properly and what equipment I needed. Although it's too soon to see the full results, I know I'm working with a company that cares and wants to get it right, and will go extra steps to make it happen. I'm also really glad to be working with a company that cares about the environment and actually knows how to do organic lawn treatments. My previous experience with another company was a flop, as they are really a grass cutting service and did not follow through with caring for my lawn's long term health and changing needs.
With seeding season approaching, we were disappointed when our current landscaping service suggested a lawn renovation where they would "basically kill everything with roundup" -- so we searched for an organic lawn care service and eventually settled on Pleasant Green Grass.They've used natural products to burn out our existing (struggling, mostly weeds) lawn...and in just about a week following the renovation we have lush, thriving grass again. In addition to the lawn care, they've also designed and constructed some modifications to the property drainage to mitigate some pooling in problem areas. We also have a professional looking stone retaining wall to replace an old, rotting wooden wall.All work was done under their quotes, on schedule, and with constant communication about any concerns we had throughout the entire process. We look forward to working with them as we continue to transform our property in the vision we've worked with them to lay out.Five stars from us, highly recommend their services!
I highly recommend Pleasant Green Grass for your lawn care needs. I am very picky, have high standards, and want to use natural, organic materials. Five years ago, I had employed Pleasant Green Grass to analyze my soil, fertilize, and aerate/reseed. After a while, I had the best looking lawn on the street. Unfortunately, I was laid off from work and had to let them go. I tried to keep up with the lawn needs, but within two years the lawn was weed-filled, spotty and sick-looking. I contacted Scott Walker from Pleasant Green Grass earlier this year to help restore my lawn and after testing the soil, aerating/reseeding and composting, the lawn now looks great! I went back to Pleasant Green Grass because they respond to my questions and concerns, arrive as scheduled, and use organic, natural material, which is important to me because I raise chickens. Pleasant Green Grass got the job done right.
I started with Pleasant Green about 2 years ago. When I first met Scott and my lawn was a mess, I asked him if he thought it could be in good working order in 18-24 month. He said that he believed it could. With their expertise, he was right!My lawn looks great. It is plush with fewer and fewer weeds and bare spots every day. Their organic approach is perfect for a healthy lawn and environment. With 2 kids and 2 dogs running around outside all day, we want to ensure that we are keeping them and the planet healthy. In addition, organic processes enable long term success where heavy chemicals require constant re-application, often in higher amounts.The staff is great, responsive and the prices are affordable. Pleasant Green is the best and I am thrilled that I found them and invested in their services
Pleasant Green Grass has great customer service and good results for our lawn. Scott and his team have always responded right away to any concerns or question we have had. When we moved into our new house, the previous owners didn't do organic lawn care but the lawn was beautiful. We were uncertain if we would be able to maintain that throughout the transition to organic, as we knew that it was a process of strengthening the lawn overall but would take a few seasons for this to happen. Scott has managed to not only keep our lawn looking nice, but is fixing areas that are spotty, working with us to deal with weed growth throughout, and making our lawn healthier than when we moved in. Several neighbors have commented on how nice it looks and we are happy to have Pleasant Green Grass caring for our lawn.
We have THOROUGHLY enjoyed working with PGG over the past couple years or so. We've contracted with them to do ongoing maintenance, pruning jobs, and special services. It's extremely important to us that their work is healthy for our young child and the environment. PGG has been very communicative, responsive, trustworthy, knowledgeable, and they do BEAUTIFUL work.I should add that summer before last they applied a safe tick repellent to our lawn and we have now enjoyed 2 tick-free summers - not bad for one application. Our neighbor had contracted from a dog tick an inability to tolerate (allergy to?) red meat, so we were particularly eager to find a safe protection against the same at our house. Not a SINGLE tick spotted since the application 1 1/2 years ago.
I have been doing business with Pleasant Green Grass for over 8 years now. The service is stellar. I chose Pleasant Green Grass because, for my family's health, I wanted to avoid the toxicity of the products used in traditional lawn care. Scott, the owner, has always been helpful and available to answer questions and address my yard's needs. Another service point I appreciate are the emails PGG sends to alert me of my service dates, any important related instructions and to educate me on the best ways of taking care of my lawn. Chad has also been a great help in maintaining and fixing my irrigation system on several occasions. If you are looking for a way to take care of your lawn in a less toxic way, I feel Pleasant Green Grass is an excellent choice.
Pleasant Green Grass has always been very pleasant, excuse the bad pun! Every time I have spoken with Scott, the owner on the phone I have been very pleased by his knowledge and manner and willingness to explain the problems with my lawn and the possible solutions. And, each person that has come to our home to do what is needed on our lawn has been very helpful and relaxed and willing to stop and answer any questions we may have. Our lawn is looking better each year also, and, it looks much more vibrant and green than the pesticide lawns. I would definitely recommend Pleasant Green Grass to others and it feels wonderful to not be contributing to a very real environmental problem.
