    Jenny & her assistant were very polite & professional. They did a very thorough job even though the price she quoted was less than it should have been per her explanation once she got into the job. There was more yard waste debris than she had calculated initially. Due to the distance between her residence & mine, she will be unable to return for any other projects as the commuting time negated her profit. Other than the distance issue, I would strongly recommend Gardening with Jenny.

    Jenny and I first communicated by phone and then email, where she sent me photos of flowering plants that she recommended for our back yard beds. We negotiated a price, she then came with a helper and he dug and planted while she oversaw the planting. The whole job took about 40 min. and cost $1200 for plants that never really bloomed properly. They continued to look sickly and/or damaged the first few weeks. I called her and she did come over, but she said they were fine. I also told her they didn't look like the photo she showed me, but she said they would. The summer went on, I took care of them (watering and pruning as directed), but nothing changed. I really feel I got ripped off.

    Timely and thorough work.

    very polite worked hard-did miss some area when she cleaned-probably due to lack of experience since cleaning is a new line for her had to have her go over some areas again that she missed-would have been more of an issue if we had not been there

    Response from Company:

    The area missed wasn't in the agreement for cleaning in the beginning but when the clients requested to be cleaned I did so as well as some additional requests.In general- very nice people to work with,probably the misunderstanding was because we just met and didn't clarify enough the job .

    Jenny and her co-worker Martin did a wonderful job with a tricky backyard area that is not easily accessible. The finished product of a raised vegetable bed, newly planted flower garden, edged borders, and a new stone path is very satisfying--and her price was quite reasonable, especially given the labor of hauling materials up many steps.

    She came out very promptly and gave a very reasonable quote for my project. She was also willing to work with my ideas on the types of plants I wanted. I would highly recommend her.

    they did a great job on revitalizing my overgrown garden.

    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.
