Overall Positive Experience because of Kingscape’s dedication, workmanship and overall value for your dollar.
Like many others who embark on this journey we invited several landscapers in to provide us with competitive quotes and ideas. In the end we elected to go with Kingscape for several reasons:
1) Dedication: This crew is dedicated to their work! The crew showed up when they said they would, worked diligently while they were here and when they left in the evening, most often 8:30pm, they would leave our property tidy and ready to go for the next day. Day in and day out this was the routine. Mike was able to inform us on the projected work for the day, the time frame and when that portion of the project would be complete. They knew the importance of completing the work within a respectful timeframe but also that it was important to us and our neighbors that our property and surrounding area didn’t look like it was under construction for the duration of the project.
2) Design: Let’s face it most of us aren’t experts in design and we think we have an idea of what we want based on what we see in magazines but that’s about the extent of our expertise. It can be overwhelming for most of us to determine what we want in design, what interlock product works best in that space, and which trees and shrubs best compliment your hardscaping. Most Landscapers that were recommended to us seemed simply content on getting us to tell them what we thought we wanted and them simply offering up a quote. There was no consultation. There were no questions like, “Have you thought about this, or have you considered using this material or what about this design”. This changed the moment my wife and I met with Mike. He brought a fresh perspective and amazing new ideas that had not crossed our minds. The ideas completed the space in one phase, not multiple phases as recommended by other companies, and stayed within our budget. His enthusiasm for his work and specifically, our project were contagious. Once Mike painted the picture for what he envisioned for our back yard, we couldn’t wait to begin. In fact, we waited a full year before Kingscape could begin on our project because they were completely booked for the following season. It was worth the wait.
3) Value for Your Money and Trust: Understand you are going to drop a fair bit of After Tax Dollars when you contact a third party to do your Landscaping. I put Value and Trust together because you are entrusting someone with your hard earned money. You hear many horror stories on contractors not completing the work, or the final cost not being close to what was originally quoted. Kingscape was competitively priced amongst three other quotes we received. When you compare the final product on what was quoted, we feel that the other Landscapers were overpriced for what they were going to offer. There was added value through creative design and architectural features that were only offered by Kingscape.
4) PRIDE OF WORKMANSHIP; this is hands down the biggest single reason why we selected Kingscape in the end. We had the opportunity to meet Mike and talk to him on several occasions before the crew began their work and what struck me the most about him, was the pride he took in his work. Like I said, you are spending some good money on this project and you want the best value for your dollar. Kingscape gives that to you in spades. You learn that there is nothing that he will offer or suggest that he wouldn’t do in his own backyard. In fact he leaves you with the distinct impression that “Your Back Yard is His Backyard” The pride he and his crew take in their work was evident from day 1. Everything that Mike suggested or promised individually was carried out by Justin and the entire crew on site. I think of landscape design like painting on a canvas. It evolves as the work is being done. They were not afraid to push the boundaries and give us more ideas as the work was being executed because that is what they would want for their own yard. Mike has been following up with us often to ensure that we are enjoying our space. He and Justin will sometimes drop by for a quick hello to see how everything is growing. They want your backyard to be that “something” that you can point to with Pride for years to come and say “Yes, this is my Oasis”.
I would highly recommend Kingscape to family members and friends.
