He is dedicated to his business and his customers.

Hard working is the phrase that comes to mind when we think of Jeff Russell. He is dedicated to his business and his customers. He truly listens to what type of design you want, stays on budget and the follow through is both timely & beautiful. He really loves his job and it shows in his work! We used American Landscaping at home and at our business. We are extremely pleased with both jobs and would highly recommend him for your landscaping needs.

We have been doing business with American Landscaping for almost 10 years.

Up until we met Jeff, our experience with landscapers was deplorable. They were unreliable. Never showed up on time. Would quote and never call back. Poor work ethic. And, poor quality work at too high of price. Jeff and American Landscaping changed all that. We found his name off a bulletin board inside Menard’s. We called and asked him to come over and look at our place as we were building a new house. Jeff showed up on time. Scratched out some general ideas, and included our suggestions. He left to work the details and said he would get back to us by the end of the week. I thought, that’s the last we will hear from him. No way. He had the estimate completed in two days. The quickest we had ever seen. The plans looked fabulous, the price was very reasonable. He is a true horticulturist. Jeff provided a start date, that he kept and that is how we started our business relationship with Jeff and American Landscaping. When he was finished, our yard truly looked liked Garden. All our neighbors complemented us. some were even Jealous. Over the years we have changed plants here and there, and added landscaping here and there, but we have always used Jeff. No job is too small or too big. His quality of work is always exceptional. He even provides snow removal services in the winter. It’s been 8 years since we moved into our house and we are still proud of our landscaping. Our yard looks like a park. Full of color and well maintained. Jeff takes care of our horticultural needs as if it was for his own house. Plus, he is a very friendly guy who takes his work very seriously. He is an expert. We would certainly recommend for any landscaping needs.

Head and shoulders above the competition.

Once the plan was finalized, Jeff and his crew showed up on time, were respectful of our property, kept us up-to-date on progress and issues and were professional in every way. The work they did to our back yard exceeded our expectations.

In the past, we have experienced second rate service from contractors. I am happy to communicate with anyone that is looking for a quality landscape contractor that American Landscaping has our highest recommendation and stands head and shoulders above its competition!

What makes American Landscaping stand out?

What makes American Landscape stand out from all the rest is Jeff can use your existing landscaping and make it better by splitting the overgrowth and replant elsewhere if you want.To me, this knowledge and labor is invaluable. His follow up on his plantings shows how important customer satisfaction really is.
