Mark’s is a great company. Price was right and the work was well done and done quickly. We had him do some drainage work, which takes some expertise; you have to understand water run-off and swales and such. He came and gave me a very reasonable estimate in mid-Summer. I then waited until September for him to do the work (best grass growing season). He was very communicative in scheduling when to come, and any additional minor work that I thought of during the wait. Once at our home his crew went to work immediately, taking a better look at the conditions, slopes, drainage, etc. He adjusted what work he did at that time and his crew finished the work, plus some minor stuff I also asked him to do, within just a few hours. His crew cleaned up all of their mess when they were done (not much, as one concern of mine was driving a Bobcat through my yard to get to the work area, but they didn’t have to do that, and used a smaller machine which left no footprint).
Highly recommended. I got 1-2 other estimates and they were all a bit higher in price and included a bit more work than what I thought needed to be done to cure our drainage problem.
Enlarged concrete step; buried downspout runoff pipe; installed paver walkway including step and porch; installed blue-stone walkway; and laid new sod (scraped away old weedy grass, evened out the area and put down a layer of top soil before laying the sod)..
Despite the very rainy month of May, Mark and his crews worked around the weather and did a fantastic job. The paver walkway, enlarged step and porch are just what we wanted. The bluestone walkways are better than expected. The sod was fresh cut and installed the same day and has really taken hold and looks like it has always been there. Mark is very easy to work with and his crews WORK! I never once saw any of his crew talking or texting on their cell phones (unlike other lawn and landscaping outfits I have seen in our area). They cleaned up every day and were very respectful of our property. I am very pleased with the work and happy we picked Marks Lawn and Landscaping. Before starting the project we settled on a vision of what we wanted. I then called 8 different landscapers and quickly narrowed it down to four. After seeing their proposals we further narrowed it down to two. My wife and I spent a weekend going over both proposals and visiting landscape suppliers to check out the different pavers and other materials. We picked Mark’s outfit and and now that the work is done know we made an excellent choice. P.S. My wife has already started a “list” for the next time we call him.
Drain Pipe Installation
Landscaper provided the special that I purchased (installation of bushes, plants). He suggested that he substitute 2 bushes for a tree that he felt would not be able to thrive on our property (too shaded). Plus I requested that he mulch, prune and weed.
It went perfectly. The crew arrived as planned. The bushes and plants installed are lovely, well chosen. The additional services were also performed and done well and in a very neat workmanlike fashion.
