“…I look at the backyard and just smile! To anyone, I would recommend Horticulture Services Group.”
– Coleen Linza

My backyard has been restored to a beautiful St. Augustine lawn thanks to Horticultural Services. I had been totally disgusted with the appearance of my back yard. I had sand brought in to stimulate grass growth and instead I got a wide variety of weeds and an abundance of a stringy fine Bermuda grass where I had a beautiful St. Augustine yard in years past. Shawn proposed that I resod the back yard after several treatments of Roundup to kill the weeds and the Bermuda Grass. I agreed to this plan and am so happy to have a beautiful lawn once again.”

Horticulture Services is a wonderful company to work with. Their invoices are always timely and correct. If there are ever any questions they respond with professionalism and detail. There have been a couple of times where items had to be repaired or corrected at an association we manage and Horticultural Services immediately either paid for the repair or corrected the issue. I would definitely recommend their services.”
