Installation of garden in front of house and upgrading backyard garden

We engaged Gardenzilla to do two jobs: installation of a new garden in front of our house and upgrading of the backyard garden with new grass sod and plants. The front garden was a challenge, as we had already commissioned a detailed design, and we had a desire to keep a large rosebush and some evergreens that had grown over the years. Gardenzilla did a marvellous job integrating the new plants into the space, adapting to the formal design and improving the appearance of a prominent evergreen by pruning it. In the backyard, Gardenzilla resodded an area that had gone to dust because of dogs and added plants here and there to fill out the garden and make it look even more natural. The Gardenzilla team also pruned a 100-year old apple tree without asking (or charging). Now that we have lived with the backyard for several weeks, we are going to make some adjustments and Gardenzilla is ready with options. My wife and are are extremely pleased with Gardenzilla's work. The team was courteous and efficient, and not a scrap of refuse was left. Communication with Michael was excellent. Overall, the long wait we had was definitely worth it.

I love the name!

I needed to have my back yard cleared out. Kaysha was extremely helpful and patient with me, walking me through the process. I was happy with their quote and everything. However, I really needed to have the work done right away and they were booking for the middle of September. I was able, unexpectedly, to find someone who was able to clear the yard by my preferred deadline so I have cancelled my booking with Gardenzilla, regretfully. I would, and will, use them in the future. Great service!

Patio Installation & Yard Clean Up

I was introduced to Gardenzilla by accident (literally--but that's a story for another time), and worked with the team to arrange some yard clean up and a patio installation. Mike (the owner) was wonderful, from meeting with me to discuss ideas, working through a quote that would achieve what we were looking for without breaking the bank, all the way to following up to ensure that I was pleased with the overall service and outcome. Our patio is exactly what we were looking for, and constructed with expertise and quality materials; while the clean up of our yard has added some much needed visual interest and was done with care. I am a bit of a perfectionist and a tough customer, but the team was very willing to work with me to arrive at the vision we had, and even put up with some last-minute changes. All in all, we had a wonderful experience with Gardenzilla, and look forward to working with them again!

Front lawn landscape work

We have been using Gardenzilla for 2 years at our new home and 3 years in our other house for monthly garden maintenance as well as snow removal and they are the best. Recently we decided to do some landscape work on the front of the house and a wonderful gentleman named Lukas did a fantastic job, our front lawn looks absolutely amazing!
Thanks Lukas for doing such a great job and my Mom could see you really care about your quality of work and it shows!

Excellent monthly garden maintenance service

I have used Gardenzilla for two years for three-season monthly garden maintenance, and I am immensely pleased with the company. Every month, my garden receives a thorough weeding and pruning--with absolutely no disruption to me--and Gardenzilla is quick to respond to additional requests.

Unlike some other companies, which might grow lax the longer you are with them, I find that Gardenzilla grows better and better. Their attention to detail, now that they have cared for my garden for two years, improves all the time. I was especially pleased with the exceptional job that Josh did the last time he was here.

The Gardenzilla monthly service, which keeps your house looking well-kept all the time, is an excellent value.

Reliable Service

I have been using Gardenzilla for 2 years now to weed my yard and flower beds, as well as fall and spring clean up. They provide reliable service. If the work isn’t done to your satisfaction, they come back and fix it. One of their really great employees is Josh, who has done the seasonal clean ups and recently, digging up and moving shrubs and a tree. Josh is super conscientious, hard working and very pleasant. All in all, even though more expensive than other gardening services I have used, I am pleased with their service.

Lawn care - weed and feed/hedge trimming (160 feet) - over each season

I found Gardenzilla on the internet, choosing them over other services mainly because of the user-friendly site, and we’ve been solid customers ever since. When they started on what we jokingly referred to as “our lawn” it was full of dock weed, dandelions, and other assorted unwanteds, and over 5 years, it has been so improved that people have commented on it. They’re accommodating and sincere in their dealings with us and we would recommend them with all confidence.

Second Spring clean up, lawn care

Second review! mazing service done by Sara and Josh. The attention to detail and quality work is exceptional.
Totally earned my loyalty and looking forward to more visits/work by this team.
keep it up !

I found Gardenzilla on Homestars as a hopeful replacement for another company we were using for lawn and garden maintenance
I was looking for a reliable company providing quality work.
WOW did Gardenzilla ever deliver!! We booked a spring clean up service with lawn care.
Sara did an amazing job.
Every component to the job was done perfectly even down to the detailed trimming of the lawn.
We wanted to give Gardenzilla a try and could not br happier. We will book them again next month for a touch up service I hope Sara is our person again!

Consistently Excellent Work

Our garden was a complete mess and desperately needed a cleanup. Elizabeth did a fantastic job getting it looking beautiful and lush again. In addition to meticulously removing weeds and tidying our plants she did the mulching (2 yards of mulch were provided for an additional $400) so we have nothing to do but water and enjoy! The Gardenzilla team also did a complete overhaul of our gardens last year and we couldn't be happier with the result.

Recent Yard Cleanup

Just got a recent visit for a cleanup, and Josh was great, thoughtful solutions, recommendations and worked with me during the visit to make sure I was aware and comfortable with the improvements he envisioned - a real collaborative effort - which I appreciated very much. The results are top shelf! I will call on Gardenzilla again!
