Review by in Bronx, NY
This person comes across as a friendly professional but in real life he does not follow through after the initial plantings. He has no idea how to take care of plants. 95% of my plants died he has no clear direction of maintenance, which was expected from a gardener. Don't waste your money. and he then does not do maintenance and the plants died.
Response by JD Garden Pro: In all fairness, I was hired to transform a relatively baron landscape, which I did. After the initial plantings I gave explicit watering instructions, which were not followed by the client. In fact , it's fair to say the client's reckless rover-use of the sprinkler system is what caused a number of the shade shrubs to drown. What this review fails to mention is that the client was refunded !00% for the shrubs that died, although she continued to ignore my watering instructions.Meanwhile I discovered that her property was infested with a plant-eating insect that ate several other perennials down to the ground. I suggested she contact a company licensed to apply pesticides, and she failed to do so in a timely matter. I'm sorry, but this situation was not caused by the gardener, and her negative review is just an attempt to shift the blame.I have been gardening for over 40 years now, in business for over ten. years.I am a trained gardener, having apprenticed at WAVE HILL botanical Gardens, and I take offense to this individual's attempt to marginalize my knowledge, and tarnish my stellar reputation.

My front lawn looks spectacular!! An amazing transformation. John listened to what I wanted and designed something that exceeded my expectations. He is an artist. He responded quickly and got the job done within days. I wouldn't change a thing.
Response by JD Garden Pro: Kathleen is the ideal client: She knew what she wanted, and trusted my recommendations. She also appreciated the standard of care and priority we gave her.We delivered on budget and on time, and transformed a dessert into an oasis.Clients like kathleen make my work most enjoyable.

Jack did a fantastic job of designing and putting in a perennial garden in our back yard. He also takes care of our yard on a regular basis, doing landscaping, pruning as needed, and taking care of the lawn. The lawn looks like green velvet after he is finished and trees that have not bloomed in years are blooming after his pruning. I recommend JD Garden Pro very highly.

Review by in Bronx, NY
Excellent work and highly recommend.
Response by JD Garden Pro: This was a big job. We first had to clear a NYC lot of garbage and debris. The debris filled a forty yard dumpster.Then multiple tree saplings and a few fully grown trees had to be removed. There were rock outcroppings everywhere, so we dug them out to make a retaining wall and a stone bench. There was a drainage issue that we solved by digging a 5 foot deep dry well. Then the upper and lower elevations had to be graded and two lawns seeded. Mission accomplished!

Review by Albert M. in Bronx, NY
Project: Seed a Lawn
I paid $1200 to have sod installed in April 2013 and it was dead by May 2013. In September 2013 he threw lawn seed over the dead sod (and billed me for it). The seed did not grow and the project was abandoned (I was told, "no point to throw good money after bad"). Naturally, I am very disappointed to have thrown my money away. Nice guy but clearly he does not know what he's doing...
Response by JD Garden Pro: Not exactly the whole story, as you can see by this client's first review of my work dated 5/11/2013. Yes ,sod was installed and yes the client was totally satisfied. However the client failed to follow my watering instructions , and then waited till it was too late to remedy the situation. That's when I recommended other options including top-seeding, but instead of discussing the matter with m he decided to defame my reputation. Honestly, this client had some issues.

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.
