Review by in Grayslake, IL
Project: Remove Trees
Alex kept the appointed time to view project and give me a quote. He and his team showed up next day at 7am sharp and got the job done in about one hour. Hauled all the debris away as promised. Would hire again.

Review by Nichole O. in Zion, IL
Project: Remove Trees
I hired Alex's Landscaping in April of this year to remove trees and build a walkway. Everything was going okay, the trees were trimmed and walking path was completed. The job was paid, at the request of Alex, and the company was supposed to return the following day to remove the stumps. They did not show or call and when I followed up I was advised that his stump grinder was in the shop. I gave him the benefit of the doubt and continued to follow up with him. After numerous attempts for a date to finish the job I requested a refund so I could hire someone else to finish the job. I am trying to install a fence and cannot do so as the stumps are on the property line where the fence will be installed. Here we are, 2 months later and the stumps are still on my property. The last communication was 2 weeks ago and he came to remove stumps and the machine "broke". This has been the ongoing issue for 2 months. I am not sure why a company would quote a job when they do not have the proper equipment. I do not recommend hiring this company for any work to be done. I only gave them 1/2 stars as the system would not allow me to proceed without a rating.

Review by in Long Grove, IL
We hired Alex's landscaping to repair our brick paver step near our front door. It appeared to be fixed, but after a few days the bricks came loose again. I asked them to come back and fix it again- he agreed... but never showed up. I tried to reach out again several times and got no response. I would NOT hire them again.

I needed this job done quickly as we are getting ready to put our house on the market.Alex was there for me the next day. He and his team came on a Saturday morning 8:00 AM and worked non stop until 4:00 PM. The yard looks great and he even went out of his way run to home depot to purchase some missing pavers which he did not charge me for. highly recommended!

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
