Customer Feedback:

Rock And Rose Landscaping

“They’re trustworthy, dependable and do good work. I’ve been their customer for 20 years. We have a small yard with a deck, and they cut back trees, ivy and bushes, and change the flowers— even the flowerpots! They keep it really fantastic and do everything you want.”

Customer Feedback:

Four Dimensions

“They were recommended to us from several people, and we had them put a native wildlife garden in our backyard. They did a wonderful job, and our garden has been on garden tours since then. Their design ideas were great, and they really listened to what we wanted.”

Customer Feedback:

Brecht Construction

“I felt comfortable and safe putting my kitchen remodel in the hands of Brecht Construction. The job was a total tear-out and transformation into a gorgeous modern kitchen. The sky lights bring so much natural light into a room that was always so dark.”

Customer Feedback:

Excellent Window Cleaning

“I run a janitorial service, and I use Excellent Window Cleaning all the time. They always do a great job, show up when they say they will, and are pleasant and honest. I’ve been using them for about 10 years, and have never had any hassles.”
