Review by in Blythewood, SC
Mr. Singleton and his team were professional and knowledgeable. I am very satisfied with the installation of mulch and metal barriers installed in my flower beds. I would definitely refer him to others and plan on using him next year.

Idris is THE go to person for landscaping. He/company installed a garden retaining wall, soaker hose, and French drain then planted anchor plants, leaving room for me and the grandchildren to garden ourselves. He worked with me throughout the process always keeping my budget in mind. He and his crew were professional, courteous, and timely. They cleaned up and hauled away. I just can't say enough about this company. I will hire them again if I ever need yard work.

Idris is dependable. He comes to work when he says he will be here. He has much knowledge about plants and planting and has been very helpful in working out a new design for my front yard

Review by in Irmo, SC
Mr. Singleton did a wonderful job. He took the time to explain the job and what they would do, how long it would take. He even went above and beyond the quoted services. Will definitely use GBD again on another project.

In addition to doing a great job in a timely manner, Mr. Singleton stayed in touch with me during the entire process. He is a great communicator! We have already made plans to have him help us with another project.

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.
