Our house will be finished next month and based on all of the recommendations from Talk of the Villages, we think we have narrowed it down to several companies. Can someone give us the email address for Jamie's and Mansfield's? We have really enjoyed looking at the beautiful pictures that people have posted!
Thanks!

Default Steve and Jamie

You can contact Steve Mansfield at 352-324-2640...

I don't have Jamie's phone number. but I'm sure someone on here does. They are both great landscapers and you won't go wrong with either one.

Thank you! I tried Google but must have not put in the right words or something. I tried Mansfield Landscaping but didn't find an email address.

I think you would do better to call. Most of the landscapers don't have a lot of time for emails. They can take a call while working on a job.

In my opinion Village Palms is the best. Their number is 352 753 4772. You should also stop in and see their display gardens located at the nursery, which is on the corner of Rolling Acres Rd. and CR 466. I do not think that any other nursery has such impressive displays which showcase their superior workmanship.

Mansfield has a website Mansfield Landscaping there is a 'contact us' button at the top of the site. I like to browse the vendors website for ideas before I talk with them. I couldn't find a website for Jamie.

We just had our landscaping redone by Landscapes by McGowan, they've been in business in TV for 12 years and are one of the best. This is our CYV finished two weeks ago. McGowan has a small office location at Southern Trace that you can visit Tue-Thur from 1 - 5. The info is on their website. They will give you an itemized estimate of every plant and labor involved with your job.

Mansfield sounds like a company that does business the right way. Knowing exactly what you are paying for is the way to go.

Default McGowan does a great job

Another vote for McGowan landscaping. They have done some extensive landscaping for us. So easy to work with and very fair and honest. They come when they say they are coming. There is no chasing them down. They are very reliable. We are having a putting green put in by them in a few weeks. Great people to work with.

My only advice is to "cool your jets". We made the mistake of wanting to get things done and though some worked out - wish we had waited on others. Give yourself a chance to catch your breath and go see these landscapes in person. Summer is slow around here for most of the trades and you won't have a problem getting something scheduled. Just one newbies point of view. Please fasten your seatbelt - you are now entering paradise!

As a few others have stated in other posts...just cause they advertise here on TOTV, does not mean they are good and will stand behind their work.

In today's issue (4-02-13) of The Villages Daily Sun, in the VHA monthly supplement included with the newspaper, The Villages Voice, is an excellent article on the pitfalls of choosing a landscaper. I highly recommend you read that article before making your final choice. You can read the article online by going to the VHA website, The Villages Homeowners Association, and clicking on "The Villages Voice" link across the top of the page. The article you are looking for is titled "Seniors Vs Crime - Don't Get Cleaned Out During Spring Clean-Up" on page 4. The info is well worth the few minutes it will take you to read it.

The problem is out of 101,600 residents, there R plenty that don't read the paper or this forum.

Leaving plenty of folks for the unscrupulous landscapers to prey on.

The lawn care or scape business has a tarnished image because of dirtbags like this.

Fortunately, there R good ones to find, REMEMBER no money up front no matter what.

In the alternative if you want some exercise DIY.

Jimbo,
Do you know of any lawn companies who charge $40-$45 for an average size designer home?
