My wife and I are frugal DIYers who don't often shy away from tackling home reno projects. The backyard, however, was another story.
After we had our backyard garage rebuilt, the lawn was in terrible shape, helped not at all by our general aversion to gardening, and our use of the space as a dog toilet. Gross, right? In any event, we decided last year to have the space cleaned up, leveled, and resodded, along with getting some shrubs planted, a rock for the dog to pee on, and a flagstone walkway/path from the driveway to the deck stairs.
We got three quotes from three different companies, and Green Valley Landscaping was the least expensive by a significant margin. They were so cost effective, in fact, that our arborist friend suggested that we approach with caution. Cheapskates that we are, we decided to give them a try, and were rewarded with a quality job, completed on time and on budget. Irene and Paul were friendly and personable and I even got an email from Irene at the start of the winter reminding me to tie up the cedar shrubs to avoid snow damage.
So if you're contemplating getting work done, give these guys a call. Highly recommended.
