"Great! We could not believe all the excellent work done in spite of the torrential rains of March. Now, with the sun shining, our back and side yards are gorgeous. We plan to have them back to do our front yard next year. Sam gave us good contacts to have a new deck built and trees removed. We shopped around, but his friends had competitive pricing, knew what they were talking about and did excellent work."
