Green Key Landscape Services
DO NOT HIRE GREEN KEY LANDSCAPING!! They are not licensed or bonded yet advertise with a license #. They have been fined for this before. We paid them approx $2k for spring clean, etc. Six wks later they haven't finished, didn't show when promised 8+ times, promised refund--never paid, wont return calls / emails. I have documentation for all my claims. #DONOTHIREGREENKEY.

A Brick Walks into a Yard
Couldn't be happier!Andrew did an amazing job creating a backyard patio with a built-in firepit and a paved front parking strip space. He measured my space and did a great computer model of my existing yard and potential plans for the project. Before he started working he met with me to go over the plans and the computer model, and this really helped me visualize what I wanted. He had great recommendations for the best use of the space. The paving design is both artistic and professional looking, and I get lots of comments about how it looks like Old World Italy and not like something that came from Home Depot. Andrew used high quality pavers and knew how to lay them out to look really beautiful, rather than just utilitarian. And two years later, my patio still looks brand-new: it didn't settle in weird ways and no weeds are growing through because he was so thorough with the leveling work he did in advance and the high-quality landscaping fabric he put underneath to make sure weeds didn't poke through. He always showed up on time and with a good attitude, and his prices were very reasonable. I couldn't be happier, highly recommend!
Tips & Advices
Employers must conduct all required training in a language and vocabulary that workers can understand. Training must demonstrate the hazards of operating certain machinery, like stone cutters and splitters, as well as how to use them appropriately. It's important to verify that your landscape contractor has taken the necessary steps to fully train its personnel and that the appropriate safety precautions are in place.
Check the specific regulations for your area, and verify that your contractor has the necessary licenses. These may include a state contractor's license, pesticide license, CDL driver's license and license to sell and purchase nursery stock.
Landscape work is not cheap, so it's in your best interest to make sure that it's done to your requirements and that you get the best contractor to do the job. Homeowners should know how much they'll need to pay for the contractor's service as well as how they will be billed for this work. Ask about any design fees, if quoted prices are fixed or estimates, and what the payment process will be. Clarifying these items in the beginning will prevent any surprise expenses.
Yes. Homeowners should require that the contractor submit certificates verifying compliance with safety, insurance, workers' compensation and drug and alcohol testing programs. This will give you peace of mind that the contractor has gone through all the steps under industry regulations.
Yes. Every good contractor should have a list of recently completed jobs that you can see in their portfolio. They should also have a list of references that you can contact, or properties that you can see in person.
