I sometimes don’t have the best luck with contractors. They usually start off well, but then fizzle out. But I got very lucky with my landscapers.
After 9 months of looking at a desert for a front yard, I decided to start looking for the best landscaper I could find. I called someone from the Yellow Pages, and they blew me off. I called back and they finally showed up and gave me an estimate that was about 5% of what I paid for my house.
I called someone from Craigslist, but they didn’t show up. So I tried another guy from Craigslist, he was to arrive at 2pm. At 2pm I got a knock on the door from a couple of guys asking me about doing my lawn. Of curse I thought that these were the guys I called from Craigslist, but it was just a strange coincidence. These guys were just driving by my house, saw what a sad state it was in, and decided to stop by and ask if I would like to hire them to fix it. I showed them around, and they gave me a price to do the front and back yard. Their price was less than 5% of the previous quoted price. I told them to go ahead and start, and they did a fantastic job.
The other guy I actually did call from Craigslist showed about 4 hours later. Amazing the difference in work ethic in people.
Over the past couple months the guys have done a great job. My lawn is looking pretty good, and it’s just about filled in. My neighbor even hired them after seeing what a great job they were doing. If you would like to talk to these guys, let me know and I’ll give you their number. I live in Green Valley, and they seem to live around here. I think they really are the best landscapers in Henderson Nevada.
