“VM Landscaping was recommended to our company by Walgreens. Recently Walgreens has an issue with a pond and they used VM Landscaping to bring the pond back to compliance.
Millennium was appointed Receiver on a property where the pond was danger to wildlife and the residents around the area. VM Landscaping was contracted, through the Walgreens recommendation and even through VM was not quite familiar with the Receivership situation, they did the work for the benefit of all and today the pond is healthy and in compliance.
VM Landscaping notified our office of issues and has worked with us for the ongoing care of the property. We will continue to use them where we can and recommend them for any of your landscape needs.”

Dear VM Landscaping & Nursery staff,
“I wanted to thank you for your generous gift and excellent customer service. I definitely felt like more than just another customer. Thank you so much for your gracious donation of the crab apple tree and rose bushes. They will look beautiful at the main entrance of our church. Again, thank you for everything, and I am looking forward to furthering our relationship.”

Dear Tom,
Thank you so much for the beautiful new patio and fire pit! We couldn’t be more pleased with the results. Your crew worked extremely hard, and Eladio was very accommodating and took the time to discuss my ideas and explain the process to me.

Whenever a homeowner accepts a bid from a contractor, we always wonder that the actual crew will be like. Your crew always arrived on time, worked hard, and was polite and courteous. They were respectful of the yard as they worked and were careful not to damage any of the existing yard ornaments and landscaping. It was a pleasure to have them on the job.

“We are thrilled with your company and will be returning to you for future projects. Thank you so much for a job well done!”

“Thank you so much for doing such a wonderful job installing our trees! We love how they look. Thank you for making this process so easy. We will recommend you to friends and family. Thanks Again!”
