Yearly maintenance for gardening

We used the Gardener a couple of years ago for our yearly maintenance of our lawn. The owner was very nice and responded quite quickly and seem to be caring. The problem wa sthta there was a lot of turn around or they hired students so the job was not consistent. Too much hand holding and explaining the staff on what needs to be done. We do have a very big backyard and they need some direction

Snow Removal

We tried their snow removal service. They were very professional and on time and several homes in the area use the service. They are kind of pricey but the service is well worth it. One thing is that they don't come to your home if the snow is "light". It has to be more than 3cm before they come to your home.

Lawn Maintenance

Inexpensive service but not done in a careful manner. Difficult to make changes to service in person or over the phone. Never quite sure what they will and will not do. Small pine tree has had most of the bark removed at the base by their weed wacker.

$900.00

Lawn maintenance

When we moved to a new house, our gardener wouln't change neighborhoods, so we had to hire someone quickly. We went on hirethegardener.com and within a day we had a lawn maintenance contract with The Gardener. They are inexpensive and reliable.

snow removal

The Gardener....they have the audacity to advertise on the radio and on the web. Giving the impression that they are a reliable and reputable service.

what a crock!

24 hour service (yeah right)
Service from first snow fall to April 1st (yeah right)
Hand shoveling to front door available (double yeah right)
New radio dispatched vehicles (what a joke!)

They don't show for up to 2 days after a heavy snowfall. You never actually speak with a person (just leave a message and someone NEVER calls you back).

They've got the standard message on their voicemail saying that they're busy and they'll get to ALL of their customers.

I paid these people to plow my drive-way and shovel my walkway, yet the sun would melt it faster than they could show.

Hand-shovelling??....I twisted my ankle trying to get from my front door to my car. Thankfully I was holding onto the railing. I missed a step...why? Because they never showed-up to clean the stairs and I was calf-deep in snow.

After that incident, I kept a shovel outside my front-door, so that I plowed my own way to the walkway and cleared a path so that I could reverse my car out the garage.

I'd say they owe me $$ for doing it myself.

I learned my lesson....I won't be needing their services this winter.

I don't need the stress, thank you very much.

If I'm going to drop dead from a heart attack, I'd rather go with a shovel in my hand.
