“I am writing to recommend Mark Schroeder and Co. for any landscaping and landscape maintenance needs. We recently remodeled a large overgrown area on the side of our new house. Mark, and his associate, Ryan Fergison, helped us with the design, showing great patience and great expertise in repeatedly meeting with us until we were happy with the plan and the price. The execution of the plan was virtually seamless as their employees were efficient, prompt, and friendly. The quality of the experience resulted in our decision to retain them for the monthly maintenance of our entire property — a decision that has paid great dividends. Ryan has continued to respond to all requests quickly, and with the smile and expertise that makes dealing with this company a true pleasure.”

“Just wanted to thank you for getting the new plants in so quickly. I didn’t realize it was going to be that same week. It was nice because I had a lot of company that week and could show off the backyard. And the new plants seem to be weathering this little cold pocket much better. Thanks for making my dream come true in the back. Everything turned out great and I am thrilled with how it all looks.”

“We’re writing today to thank you and your entire staff for doing such a wonderful landscaping job in our yard. Although we didn’t have a very large space to work with, you were able to incorporate all of our ideas and special requests to create just the look we were hoping to achieve. We know that some of our favorite plants were a challenge to integrate into a Southern California landscape, and we’re impressed that you were able to find a way to accomodate each one. Your staff was an absolute pleasure to work with. We were repeatedly impressed by their willingness to try different ideas or rework concepts based on our preferences. It is so refreshing to work with a company that makes customer services a real priority.”
