When I googled "best landscaper" in Edmond, "Aynes Landscaping" was the top response. After using Aynes for extensive work at our home, I wholeheartedly concur that they are indeed the best! From the initial meeting with owner Mike Aynes, through presentation of design ideas, implementation, and one year of warranty work, the company has provided excellent service.
What impressed me from the start was Mr. Aynes' personalized service, expertise, and artistic vision. In our backyard, Aynes Landscaping stained our concrete patio, extended the patio using flagstone, added trees to the yard, created two large flower beds, and planted a variety of shrubs and trees along the length of both sides of the backyard to provide privacy screening and hide an eyesore. The flower bed design included boulders, border stone, and a sprinkler drip system.
On one side yard, Aynes replaced the grass (what little there was) with rock pebbles, installed one small garden bed, and added a walkway of pavers. Because we were so pleased with their work, we also asked Aynes Landscaping to update our front yard; the resulting makeover is such an improvement.
Aynes Landscaping handled challenges with integrity and a desire to satisfy the customer. Although grey landscape border stone and flagstone matched best with the brick and grout colors of our home, I like earth tones, so Michael (the son) painstakingly selected and arranged a variety of colors--mixing shades of grey, cream, and black with earth tones for a wonderful custom effect. The color of the concrete staining offered a challenge, but the company willingly worked to get an end result that satisfied. Wow, old-fashioned service like this is rare!
In addition, Mr. Aynes went the extra mile to search at several nurseries for the perfect specimen of each tree and shrub, and for a unique patio tree that really catches the eye. Aynes' labor force consists of family and family friends, all of whom were friendly and responsible. I'm writing this review one year after the work was completed, and am happy to say that replacement of a couple of struggling shrubs and trees due to an extremely hot summer (2012), and a minor sprinkler adjustment, were quickly made within the warranty period.
Mike's goal was that at the completion of the project we would think Aynes Landscaping "hung the moon" -- and we certainly do!
