We met with Mike for the first time in 2012 after spending the good part of a year meeting with other contractors to quote on our job. Right from the beginning, Mike showed respect, confidence, and professionalism as we discussed what we wanted to do. We had a at least 7 or 8 face to face meetings going through options and reviewing budget as Mike was always very patient to work with us in making changes and taking it upon himself to offer suggestions. Our overall comfort with Mike and his ability to see our vision is what drove us to choose Kingscape to do the work on our backyard. The Kingscape team (there are many in the extended group) of Mike, Justin, Adam, and Corey began work on our backyard in August - and they worked everyday until the project was completed. Right from the beginning, the attention to detail and thought that went into their work was clearly evident. No work was ever rushed to just get it completed and time was taken to ensure that everything looked and fit just right. Throughout the entire process, recommendations were made in order to ensure that the final product would be based on our expectations. Everyone completely understood what our vision was and they worked hard to get it just right. What was very comforting throughout all of this is there was no feeling of a money grab or “missed items” from an initial contract. Mike kept all work within the set budget that we agreed to so there were no surprises at the end.
As we came close to completion, it’s the final touches where the team shines and makes a difference. Every little item from paint color, to type of lights used for the landscape lighting, to accessories for the pool, to lighting for the waterfall, etc. was thought about in detail. There were times when Mike would call or email me off hours to talk about an idea. It’s this passion and care about the job that really differentiates these guys from others – and this is not just shown by Mike but by the whole team. We built such a good rapport with the entire group that we trusted them to make final decisions on many things including planting (selection and layout) and the look is just phenomenal.
With the project complete we have to say that we are absolutely amazed at how well it turned out and it is beyond our expectations. Friends and family have come by and were also just amazed at the workmanship that went into making our backyard our oasis. I have and will continue to recommend Kingscape for any landscaping job that you may be considering. You will not find another group of hard working, dedicated, professional, and FAIR individuals anywhere!
Mike, Justin, Adam, Corey, Frank, Andre, Mark, Vic, Dan, Curtis, Lee, Jack, Alex, Chris, Derek, Jason – thank you ! It has been an absolute pleasure to work with each and every one of you.
