What is an example of a time when you helped a customer that you are particularly proud of?

American Plant was hired to spruce up a customers gardens for a backyard Wedding in May. The designers and crew performed as promised. When Mother Nature slowed the flowers from emerging on time, American Plant returned and replanted flowering beds for the event. AP created a beautiful environment that was the instrumental element in  making their home wedding a happy occasion.

How would your customers describe you?

“I could not be happier. I wish all of my home projects were so easy to execute. I would hire AP again in a heartbeat”

“AP was able to schedule our start date quickly, and I was impressed at how quickly the project was completed- just about 5 days work.”

“AP’s stone mason and the entire work crew are in-house employees and not subcontractors. Gabe the master stone mason and his team did an amazing job and worked tirelessly and fastidiously. Showing respect for our property, cleaning up the site as they worked and making sure everything was safe for our children to play in the yard at the end of the workday”


“I would rate AP landscaping ten stars if I could”
