Jim and his entire crew are abosolutely top-notch – Angie's List Grade 'A'!
The short version:
Jim and his entire crew (office, design and landscape/implemention) are absolutely top-notch. We did a pretty thorough overhaul of our entire yard which included new concrete patios/walkways, a boulder-strewn courtyard, and some gorgeous vegetable beds in a very non-traditional area. Throughout the entire process we felt comfortable with Jim's knowledge, his professionalism, and his ability to direct a crew and other subs. They were on-time, on-budget and everyone we dealt with was friendly, fun, professional and hard-working. We really can't recommend them enough, and most importantly, we trust them. I would hire Reynolds Landscape again in an instant and have been telling all my friends about their work.
My husband and I can't say enough great things about Reynolds Landscaping. We just finished a complete remodel of the interior and exterior of our home using many different contactors, and Jim's outfit was far and away the most professional, courteous and reliable of the bunch. When we set out to have our landscaping revived we didn't know anyone in the industry. We were really taking a chance based on reviews, and we're SO glad we did.
Jim responded to our online query immediately and set up a meeting with us to talk about our needs. He was clearly knowledgeable about plants and hardscape options and suggested a lot of great ideas right off the bat. We had some definite ideas as well concerning the usability and layout of our property, and Jim listened closely and checked in with us frequently to make sure everything was on track.
They scheduled us for late August, and actually started early. They were realistic with us about the timeline, and we were so appreciative of that. They stayed on time and the crew communicated with us all along the way to make sure we knew what was happening next. Speaking of the crew - the foreman was AMAZING! Clearly takes a lot of pride in his work, and he's also great about communicatingchanges and asking questions to make sure we were in lockstep on the design throughout the entire project. The entire crew was at our house early every single day. We truly felt like we were being made a priority. They were also all very nice and fun to talk to, and our neighbors both commented on how courteous The Reynolds' crew were in terms of parking their vehicles.
Jim was great about budget as well - he was transparent the entire way through and really listened to us when we were explaining our priorities for the space. He never got us to try to spend more, and was great at offering up alternatives, or giving us the benefit of his knowledge regarding where we could likely get away with spending less.
After starting the project, it became clear that there are a ton of variables to think about when creating a beautiful landscape. Jim, Wilmer, and the crew stay very flexible and it's obvious that their experience and knowledge is critical to tackling any design challenges (while keeping in mind the timeline and priorities) that crop up while the project is underway. With the rest of the subcontractors working on my house, I felt like I had to micromanage every single move and get ahead of every single thing that could go wrong. With Jim and Wilmer I didn't have to do that. They inspired me to trust in their judgment and they made the right choice, every time, for our property.
Jim Reynolds and his crew are good, trustworthy people doing beautiful, quality work within realistic budgets and timelines. This is a really hard combination to find and we feel really lucky to have found it in Reynolds Landscape. Keep up the great work, guys!
