How We Got Started

I chose to work in this industry because I would prefer a more equal split. I’m generally in the office, but nothing is more rewarding than seeing the work done in the office come to life in the field.”.

We started in this industry in 1986.

We describe our business as Rooted in the community

Peter was lovely to work with. The project turned out better than I had originally planned and we are thinking of using Peter for future projects.

Review by in Pound Ridge, NY
Until we met the fabulous Peter Atkins, we struggled with our plantings for 28 years. No other landscaper we've known has had the knowledge combined with the creativity that he has. We met him this summer and he advised us in transforming our property. He and his very competent crew will be doing ongoing maintainance as well. His ideas, materials, resources are wonderful. He notices issues to be addressed that may not even be in his purview. We really appreciate that Peter is very respectful of our preferences and budget. He is extremely available on site, by phone or email.

I am very happy with the service he has provided. I will be hiring him again in the spring. He listens to what the customer wants and is easy to deal with.

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.
