We built a large house out in the country in Iowa and it is quite the drive to Mulhall's, but worth it. The staff member I worked with was very knowledgeable, however, it is many times hard to find help. I wanted simple perinnials to grow and wanted reds, greens, varigated...more, and some greenish gold because the front of our house is stone and I wanted it to look very natural and simple, since we live in the country. I explained that we have harsh weather and no wind block, as well as no trees for shading anything. He listened to all of this and we made some excellent choices, they are all doing VERY well, expept for one, which Mulhall's will replace. Also, their hanging baskets are to die for!!! I think the prices on their perinnials are competitive I only spent probably $600 landscaping the front of our house, which included around a large deck. We will go back to Mulhall's for our other landscaping needs - we're not done yet!! Prices on other items tend to be high, but I also think the quality is better than many other stores. Too high for the quality you get? Maybe a little high still...view less
I got three bids and Stumpy's was right in the mix. Scott called me back quickly and arranged for a grind time. He arrived on time and knocked it out in an hour or so. He told me he'd grind 8 inches below grade and take care of the roots. He ground out everything in a 6 foot...more diameter around the tree stump. And I would bet he went down at least 16 inches below grade! With the massive grind area, the ratio of chips to dirt was low. All I have to do is level, screed off about 4 inches and replace with clear top soil. Its been the easiest stump removal I've ever had done.... I've done three over the years. Stumpy's is quick, thorough, friendly and on time. Their pricing is super and their service is second to none. I wouldn't have gotten half the service from the other two contractors... I made the right bet and you will too if you get Stumpy's to do your work for you. I am a Purchasing Agent by profession and these guys are the real deal: best value for the money.view less
Eric and his men came through despite a bad situation. He stuck with my family when he didnt contractually have to. Going the extra mile meant a lot and I would recommend the alcovian family to anyone. Kudos Eric!
