Taurus has been taking care of my property since the summer of 2010. Whether it's been maintenance, installation, clearing or tree trimming, they have never let me down. If they can't come due to weather conditions, they make it up and I never worry when they are here, even if I am not. My previous landscaper was not dependable and the property had suffered but, within a few months of David and his crew taking over, my property had regained its dignity. They do what they promise and they do it right. Not the least expensive, nor the most expensive, but honest and dependable and I would rate their work as top of the line.

I had posted a review on September 21st that this company did not get a quote to us. After seeing this review the company sent an email saying they had emailed me on August 31 to say the quote was ready. And yes, the company did send the email on this date.

What a find. Recommended by local Sod Supplier, we were delighted to find this company was everything we needed: prompt, professional and hard working. In one day they hauled in fresh topsoil, tilled the area, laid beautiful sod and mulched the entire yard. They will be asked back for our next project. Excellent!

I just had David and his crew remove years of dead leaves from the property of a home I just bought. He was the only company I contacted that would be bothered to actually visit my home and give me a real quote. Through various weather problems, he consistently sent his crew back out until the job was complete - the last time bled into after hours. His crew is friendly, and polite. I will be hiring them to do some other projects in the yard and outdoors.

I would highly recommend never using this company for any services. If you care about your animals, your privacy, and being treated with respect, never hire these disrespectful people. They left my home without completing the job and they did not notify us that they were leaving. They left the gate to our fence open, and we almost lost our dogs. When we finally had a conversation with the owner about his employees leaving without notice, we explained how important it is that they close our gates, so our dogs do not try to run out. They were going to be using toxic chemicals on our yard, so we explained to the owner that we were concerned about the toxicity. The owner said the product was only toxic for 1 hour. The owner said he would show up the following Saturday to complete the work. However, at 8:30 on a Friday night, I walk outside to my backyard with my dogs, only to realize a strange man spraying chemicals that could have killed my dogs. David could have called or rang the doorbell to let us know they were at my house working, but they didn't. Fortunately I managed to get my dogs in the house without them escaping or being exposed to deadly chemicals. The owner, David, was unapologetic and very aggressive, as if he wanted to physically harm me. I felt threatened and almost called the police. Thankfully my dogs are safe and David has been fired.

David, the owner, and his crew of 4 arrived at 4 PM last Monday to relocate 20 largely overgrown shrubs the builder planted 11 years ago. His foreman Chris took charge and with David's efforts as well they moved one small tree & 19 huge shrubs they pruned & planted in the hardest clay imaginable. All done within 3 hours time, including watering and mulching! I'm so impressed I'll gladly pass his company's name around whenever possible. I'll even have him involved with the new landscape designs I'm considering soon. Very responsive, with great follow-up & easy to work with too!

I used to use Taurus, in fact I used to rave about them, then they started slipping up. I would make appointments and David would be a no show. I had gotten a quote and then he mailed me another one that was significantly higher. They brought back Chris which helped but by then, I didn't want to work with them.
