Comments: John did a very good job with the project (spring cleaning). He showed up on time and stayed until the job was finished. I was very impressed with his work ethic. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars across the board is the price changed two times. He mentioned that he told me that he didn't bid the job correctly.

Comments: I've been using John for a couple of years now helping me with many projects and cannot possibly be more satisfied. I live 1500 miles away and he has helped me take care of my property in my absence. John always goes the extra mile to make sure what I need done gets done and done right. If he can't handle what I need he gets with folks that can and works with them to make certain the job gets done. He has always treated me fairly and has not once taken advantage.

Comments: Prompt and friendly service and reasonably priced.

Review Date: 05/13/2014 | Author: Stan M.

Comments: John is a really nice guy . Came as scheduled, Did the job for the price he quoted. I needed my lawn thatched and raked, he had his riding lawnmower with an attachment that was used to thatch, he was unable to get the edges of my lawn near my driveway because it would scuff up the driveway, which he was nice to explain prior to doing the work, too bad this area needed to be done lots of dead grass left behind. As for raking, he didnt rake, he used a broom type attachment which did ok, but left a fair amount of debris behind. I need to get a rake done now, also he doesnt take away debris.
