We found Steve in April 2011 via Craigslist. He came and gave us an estimate on a first-day shrub trimming ($50)and bi-weekly normal lawn service ($35). Everything was great until the last service in October, which was another shrub trim-down to round out the season. The crew left the clippings all around the yard and didn't haul them away. We tried to reach Steve on his cell and at the office, but never got a call back. We went with another company in 2012. We saw Steve's work truck 2 doors down the fall of 2012 and I went to talk to him. After asking why we stopped using him, I explained the issue we had with the cleanup, and he explained, saying they had expanded the business, and his brother had done sloppy work for him. He said we were "one of their best customers," (presumably because we left a check for them 100% of the time?), and he asked if they could have the job back if they made things right. I told them they absolutely could. He told me to call his wife at the office to schedule an appointment. Three calls later, and with no call back, we decided to give up on him for good. It's really sad that he became so flakey. They did good work, but have now become totally unreliable, so we cannot recommend them. By the way, the crew was doing a VERY big job 2 doors down, so perhaps they like big, expensive jobs now. That's fine, but I wish he had been more honest about it.

Took my money and NEVER mowed my yard. Said I gave them the wrong address to use for 6 months when I was out of town. Funny thing was all the bills I was getting an paying from them had right address on it. Refusing to refund money. SCAMMERS! Beware!!!! Had to pay another company to actually do the work.

Did not show for a scheduled appointment, did not bother canceling or returning any messages (wanted the lawn taken care of before a party) 1. Saw there ad for $45/yard mulch installed on Craig's list. Called them and was told that wad not possible for my 3.5 yards (ad said minimum does not apply). Was told it'll bee $55/yard. 2. Still agreed and even added flower installation. Scheduled for 8am the morning of my daughter's birthday so would have a nice lawn for the party. 3. NO SHOW!!!!! Left numerous messages, but no call back with explanations or apologies! So even after agreeing to their prices and confirming they'll be there on 8am, they just didn't bother showing up without Amy notice or call back.

Called SJP Landscapes and had my pinestraw and my neighbors out and spread within a couple of days. This is after 5 others stood me up. Pinestraw looks great, nice employees and on top of their job. Thanks SJP for jumping on it!

I spoke with Steve Tuesday night and he had his guys out to my house for an estimate the very next day! They also did all the work that I needed done on the same day because they took it upon themselves to come prepared. Not to mention Steve came out with them just to meet me and help make sure that everyone was on the same page! The prices are great, the work is fabulous, and everyone in the crew is VERY friendly and accommodating! I DEFINITELY recommend these guys if you are in need of any lawn service!! If I could give more than 5 stars I would!

We had an amazing experience with SJP Landscapes. I emailed Steve on Friday, and he was at my house the next day giving me an estimate. Their prices are great, as is the quality of their work. We will absolutely be using them in the future.
