Review by in Carbondale, IL
When we called to get an estimate we were able to schedule our lawn to get mowed for the same day. They offered to lowest estimate for our small yard.

Review by in Anna, IL
A few years ago, our city of Anna, discontinued leaf removal pick-up. I am so thankful that this business makes that service available (along with overall fall yard clean-up). I will be using them again next year, and I highly recommend their services to anyone else who finds themselves in the same boat I've been in these last few years.

Review by in Cobden, IL
Initial contact was made within five minutes of info entry on Home Advisor. I required 2-3 acres of grass mowed bi-weekly. They did the first mow within a week of first contact. ( Outstanding response considering the time of year!) Quick, clean and polite. Will be invoiced monthly. I am pleased. Try these guys!

Review by Judy M. in Ewing, IL
Duckworth is not a landscaper, he is a grass cutter using a rider mower. Judge who granted me $900, half what I was charged for work that should have been $854. Judged asked me why I didn't sue for more. Judge threathened to file charges with Attorney General against him. The so called work he did was terrible. He should not be on this site to be recommended.
Response by Duck Works Lawn Care: I am Chris Duckworth and I am the owner of Duck Works Lawn Care. Judy was unhappy with the project I did. Judy changed her mind several times during the planning phase of the project. When the work was completed she had changed her mind without notifying me. Instead of allowing me to work this out she went straight to court. Her complaints were I put down too much mulch: which I have never received that complaint before. 4-6 inches was installed which is recommended. I put down top soil which was from Burkdell and kept in doors. Highest quality here. I will stand by my work any time and fix any problems that occur if the customer allo

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.
