I would suggest not using CGT for your yard services. I asked them to come out in July to fertilize and put down weed killer. They requested a check first before services were performed. I mailed them a check on July 27th. I noticed by August 6th my check had been cashed. I followed up with a phone call and CGT stated they would be out within 2 weeks. They did not show. I followed up at the end of August, again once again they said they would be out after Labor Day. I called once more (3 calls now thus far) and they stated they would have it done within a week. No show again. We are now on Sept 20th, where upon I follow up and call and they stated the weather currently was causing problems and they would not be able to do my yard. They have now had my money for 2 full months and they are full of excuses. I called once again the first week of Oct and their statement was "we were told by all of the yards were done. Are you sure?" Yes I am sure my yard has more weeds then one can count. I asked for my money back and they go "would like us to apply it to next season come out"? I think you can guess what my answer was. Good luck to you if you use them. I contacted BBB on my behalf.
After speaking to no less than eight (8) different vendors, enter Friedges Landscaping & Jim. I knew from the first conversation with Jim on the phone, they were different. For starters, Jim was more thorough & informative than his competitors. He took the time to walk me through all the particulars & answer all my questions.Shortly thereafter, Jim came out and inspected our yard. He drew up a landscape plan for us & provided a detailed quote. I found Friedges pricing to be extremely competitive & fair (much less expensive than their competition).We ended up doing in-ground sprinklers & sod on about 1/3 acre lot. They did it right, trucking in fresh topsoil & throughly grading the lot. We added a 4' rock border around the house, and seven (7) blue spruce pine in the back - about 6' foot each. We also did a boulder wall & a nice manicured area in the front with plantings.Their team & installers were great and the end result was excellent. They even left me a plan & schematic detailing all the sprinkler zones & where the heads were located. Needless to say we're extremely pleased with the whole experience. Friedges & Jim are professional, timely & all around great landscapers. My favorite part is I have had no less than three neighbors complement my yard.I would highly recommend Friedges!
We had multiple companies come out and provide us bids for our landscaping. We ended up selecting Friedges because of their great reputation. They were detailed, professional and offered great suggestions in a range of prices. Friedges exceeded our expectations with their level of service. Their team completed our landscaping within the timeframe promised, stayed within our initial budget and even came back a few days later to move a bush a couple of inches that we asked them to move. I would highly recommend Friedges for all of your landscaping needs, you will not be disappointed!
Awesome!!The second time we have worked with Friedges and they are 2 for 2. This time we had a patio put in underneath our deck. Excellent design, scheduling, workmanship, and final appearance! The work site was cleaned daily and anything that was disturbed was restored to original condition, including re-sodding. The crew was very courteous, friendly, and professional; they can handle any situation. The patio is perfect and looks great!
