Great Job by Mansfield Landscaping
Our experience with Mansfield Landscaping has been very good. The pride the whole team takes in doing a great job was obvious every step of the way. See our before/after pictures.
We started off with a budget of $3k to $5k to replace the stock landscaping that came with our new home. We had reviewed Talk Of The Villages and lined up three landscapers to give us an estimate. Steve happened to have the first available opening and we went to his nursery. This was an experience, as Steve is a real talker. First, Steve had us review his portfolios and walk around the nursery. Next we sat down with Steve and he let us know what both ends of our budget would cover (and what it wouldn't cover) right away. He provided us with lots of information about the pros and cons of each approach. Steve laid out the facts and didn't push us to either end of our budget. Next Steve gave us the "used car salesman" spiel about why we should sign up right away, then we walked through the nursery as we discussed what to do. We signed and are very glad we did. After we signed we realized we forgot to talk about moving our logustrums to the back yard along our lanai. We called Steve to see how much extra it would cost to just move them (no rocks or edging), and he said don't worry.
After signing we went through the nursery and picked out our bigger plants, there was no pressure and lots more great advice. The Mansfield site crew was very efficient, good, and accommodating. It took the site crew 2 half days to: remove the old plants; replant the ones we kept; plant the new ones; realign the sprinklers; add the stones; and prep for the curbing. The curbing was done on a later day. They were responsive to our requests for on-site changes in plant choices and positioning. During this time Steve was prompt in returning our calls and did a walk through after the job was done.
