Mark is a thoughtful and skilled contractor. He is curteous, timely and pays attention to the small details that give you confidence in his ability to take good care of your home/project. Of the three consultations we had for our backyard patio, he was the only one to bring us product pamphlets so that we knew what our choices were and how the process works. He also took time to bring samples for each stage of the build. He cleaned up as needed and even topped off our gravel driveway which took a beating during the soil excavation. Best of all, our patio is gorgeous and totally ups are quality of life! I wish I could post a picture here. :)

5.0 Chad H. Saint Louis, MO

Mark at Garden Experts checked all of the boxes. He was timely, knowledgeable, efficient, courteous, efficient. But what stood out to me the most was when my project had some design difficulties that required a redesign, he provided options until the project was perfect. Iâ d hire Garden Experts for any project I have.

5.0 Dave Z. Saint Louis, MO

Mark replaced a retaining wall in our backyard, rebuilding and expanding the patio in the process. He was fantastic! His work is excellent. He is thorough and did everything properly and in a timely manner. He was totally professional. The cost was more than fair. I completely recommend him and would hire him again without question.

5.0 Christina T. Saint Louis, MO

Fantastic service and quality products. Mark came out for an estimate for our backyard patio on a holiday!!! Who does that?? He does. That's how much he cares about his customers. I would highly recommend Garden Expert to anyone looking for patio or landscaping needs. We will be hiring him again for future projects.

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.
