When I googled "best landscaper" in Edmond, "Aynes Landscaping" was the top response. After using Aynes for extensive work at our home, I wholeheartedly concur that they are indeed the best! From the initial meeting with owner Mike Aynes, through presentation of design ideas, implementation, and one year of warranty work, the company has provided excellent service. What impressed me from the start was Mr. Aynes' personalized service, expertise, and artistic vision. In our backyard, Aynes Landscaping stained our concrete patio, extended the patio using flagstone, added trees to the yard, created two large flower beds, and planted a variety of shrubs and trees along the length of both sides of the backyard to provide privacy screening and hide an eyesore. The flower bed design included boulders, border stone, and a sprinkler drip system. On one side yard, Aynes replaced the grass (what little there was) with rock pebbles, installed one small garden bed, and added a walkway of pavers. Because we were so pleased with their work, we also asked Aynes Landscaping to update our front yard; the resulting makeover is such an improvement. Aynes Landscaping handled challenges with integrity and a desire to satisfy the customer. Although grey landscape border stone and flagstone matched best with the brick and grout colors of our home, I like earth tones, so Michael (the son) painstakingly selected and arranged a variety of colors--mixing shades of grey, cream, and black with earth tones for a wonderful custom effect. The color of the concrete staining offered a challenge, but the company willingly worked to get an end result that satisfied. Wow, old-fashioned service like this is rare! In addition, Mr. Aynes went the extra mile to search at several nurseries for the perfect specimen of each tree and shrub, and for a unique patio tree that really catches the eye. Aynes' labor force consists of family and family friends, all of whom were friendly and responsible. I'm writing this review one year after the work was completed, and am happy to say that replacement of a couple of struggling shrubs and trees due to an extremely hot summer (2012), and a minor sprinkler adjustment, were quickly made within the warranty period. Mike's goal was that at the completion of the project we would think Aynes Landscaping "hung the moon" -- and we certainly do!
Speaking of Aynes Enterprises....experience, professionalism, and integrity come to mind. Every detail in our project was planned with excellence, and we are so incredibly happy with the transformation of our back patio and yard area. All our goals of privacy, peacefulness, and beauty were accomplished. We especially liked that Aynes Enterprises is a very complete business, basically one call does it all. They coordinated our complete job including electrical, gas, concrete work and staining, sprinkler system details, french drains, landscaping, tree removal, and more. Mike coordinated every last detail of our project which included a beautiful flagstone area, amazing fireplace, incredible pergola, and a drop dead beautiful water feature. We feel like we are in Colorado in our back yard! We could never have dreamed our yard could be so peaceful, and we will enjoy it for years to come. I would highly recommend Aynes Enterprises to anyone needing any type of landscaping services. They are truly superb, creative, and do top quality work. As my husband said before making the decision to stay in our current home, "Why move? Just improve!" I must say, now I agree 100% as we feel like we are in a new home without the hassle of moving! Thanks, Aynes Enterprises, for transforming our back yard space to our dream yard.
Our job was a combination landscape upgrade and sprinkler system installation. It was clear to us from the start that we were dealing with experienced professionals who make quality work and customer satisfaction their top priorities. Mike Aynes came to our home, discussed our needs, offered suggestions, and gave us several options. Ryan Hamilton, Aynes' landscape designer, did likewise, with drawings and iPad color images for renovating our yard. Work began promptly as scheduled - and I mean work! Hot July days, but the entire crew worked together to transform our yard into more than what we expected. We were particularly pleased with the features used to disguise an unsightly manhole cover on our corner. (see pix) Thx Ryan! We are indeed satisfied with the sprinkler system, which covers our entire property. We included the optional rain sensor for the sprinklers, and it works wonderfully. Our thanks to Mike, his dad, both Ryans, Wes, Gary, and the entire crew for a job well done!
We are delighted with the work Aynes Enterprises did for us. Mike's plan for transforming our backyard was beyond our expectations. He kept in mind basic drainage issues while creating beautiful garden spots with big boulders, trees and shrubs. We love the professional lighting all around our house, and enjoy it every evening. He installed our sprinkler system when we built our house 25 years ago, and is still doing top quality work. We love the flagstone patio and walk, boulders, and all the trees and shrubs that he chose. It was obvious that all the workmen took pride in their work, giving us a place we will enjoy for many years to come. We highly recommend this family owned business.
Contacted Aynes on-line regarding French drain system; prompt to call us back. They showed up with the right equipment/tools/ manpower to do the job. System installed last week. Was a two-day job, and the men worked HARD. Before they left at end of 2nd day, they cleaned up loose dirt, etc., smoothed over where trenches had been dug, worked well into the evening. Neighbors were even impressed. Mike Aynes came by this week to do a walk-through of project. This is a family-owned business and everyone is dedicated to continuing an excellent reputation for quality. Will definitely call them again for other projects. Highly recommend.
Mike was very professional. He listened to what we wanted and created a design for our new front bed and chose the plants that perfectly complemented our house. His crew showed up on time early each morning, worked all day, and everything was cleaned up at the end of each day. They expanded our bed, relocated the garden sprinklers, and removed a tree that was blocking the view of our house. Our new landscape really shows off our house. It looks GREAT ! We will definitely recommend Aynes Enterprises to everyone we know, and we will use Aynes again for our next project.
