Everything went well! The flower bed and mulched area both look great. They were careful and let me know about a sprinkler head in the bed I would need to have raised or re-located after they created the new bed. They cleaned up nicely.
Description of work:
Dug out, added soil and cedar mulched and edged a flower bed. Weeded and cedar mulched another area around a smaller tree.

The bad winter left my backyard landscaping a mess. I decided to break it into two parts. a small piece to be done immediately and a larger piece for later. Sir Williams had an Angie's List offer for six hours of labor. It exactly fit my bill for the smaller piece.

Everything worked out exactly as planned. Immediately after responding to the ad, I was contacted by Diane and a date was set.. She kept me fully informed as time went by. On the arranged day, Bill arrived with the crew and everyone set to work. Well organized, hard working and congenial group, Sir Williams did not know about the larger job until I discussed it with Bill at the end of this project.
Description of work:
Accomplished a number of small landscaping tasks. Trimming some bushes, removing a dead tree, moving some dirt.

Mr Toll called prior to his arrival on Monday, April 28th- 9:30 a.m. promptly, as scheduled. He introduced himself and his staff. We walked the the yard to discuss exactly what I wanted done.
Periodically throughout the job he questioned to be certain what I wanted was being carried out. When the job was completed he and I went through to be certain everything was done and acceptable.
He and the staff worked very hard and longer than required to complete the job.
Sir Williiams Garden did a great job! I am very pleased with their work. If and when I have additional landscaping work to be done, I will definitely call upon them to do it.
Description of work:
The provider removed plants and flowers from the beds as requested: removed several small trees, cut low branches from large evergreen trees (prepared from set out), removed, cut and shaped shrub and bushes, cleaned weeds from the beds.

I Asked the owner, Bill Toll, if it would be possible to clear/clean and edge all flower beds, to rake the lawn and to remove all leaves and debris. His team of five men and himself came on time and did an absolutely outstanding job!! There was so much work to be done and they did a beautiful job in the time frame that we had agreed on. Would I hire them again? ABSOLUTELY!!!
My husband, who is extremely fussy and critical about his yard was very pleased. I Am looking forward to calling him in the Fall for fall cleanup.
Job well done!!

Bill came on a Sunday, quoted the job out. He is good at planning gardens and has ready access to a large number of plant species - you can check his website for that. We wanted the gardening done the following week. He and his crew were on another job and then it rained a few days the next week. In the following week of July 1, 2013, he added a few members to the crew because we were going out of town and they finished in two days. They did a great job and offered to come back for maintenance of their work if we wanted. We are planning to bring him back in for another consult and a maintenance visit and planning so we can get the maintenance load reduced for the future.

It had been about 15 years since the last time this house would've had a full on yard clearing. The plants were growing into the fence and all over the place. He has cleared the yard to the point that we only have a few stumps left. The plants were growing over the fence into neighbors yards as well. The thickness of this overgrowth was like a jungle. He is a soft spoken man, he is very honest and has integrity. He clearly explains what needs to be done and gives you options for the project. He does not overcharge and he works with his employees to get the project done.

Our street needed some basic cleanup and landscape work in the common area so we went to Angie's list to contact some local firms. We called half a dozen places but Bill was the only one that picked up the phone right away and was at our location to have a look later that afternoon. Once I explained what we were looking for, Bill spent the better part of the next hour taking measurements and doing a thorough evaluation. He was in contact with a quote and a few additional suggestions within 24 hours of the initial phone call.

I purchased the six hour Spring clean up deal from Angies list.
William called me and then came over and measured my areas for mulching and asked that I order the mulch and let him know.when it arrives.
When I informed William that the mulch I ordered had arrived, they were here in about an hour and started to work. They first did some weeding in the flower beds, then spread a weed preventative down, then mulched all the necessary areas. Before mulching, all the shrubs were trimmed and clippings cleaned up. Everything went very well and looks great now .

Purchased time from Angies List deal (6 man hours of yard work)
After a few phone calls, and one rescheduled day, work began on Friday 11-6. 2 people arrived near 3:20PM and worked until it got too dark to continue (2 hours, 4 man-hours).
Returned 9AM Saturday 11-7. Worked until pre-paid time was expired, and asked what was next. I opted to pay for additional time to continue raking/bagging leaves, and also added additional tasks (weeding and cutting the grass). I ended up paying $2xx more for the time.
Quality of work was excellent, my yard looks great, and I will definitely consider this vendor for additional work in the future, probably for spring clean-up MAYBE a complete re-do of my landscaping in the future.

They finished on time and left the place clean. I really had no idea who to call for this job so I joined Angie's list, chose Sir William because of his reviews and cool name and he lived up to both. If you want your landscaping to have that extra touch, Sir Williams your guy!

They called to inform us they would be a little later than anticipated, but once the crew arrived they hit the ground running. They worked nonstop the entire time, and did a great job cleaning out the flower beds and performing the spring clean up. We decided to pay for an additional hour as they had made good progress on the flower bed mound on the front lawn but we not able to completely remove it. With the additional hour, they got the job done. Afterward, my husband when out to do some finishing touches on the flower bed mound and one of the crew helped him, even though he was "off the clock" at that point. To me, that spoke volumes. When all was said and done, the crew had filled about 35 or so yard waste bags! They did a great job, and I would definitely recommend them.

The job was done very professionally and expertly. Equally important, they did everything I wanted. The company's owner was on site a large proportion of the time and made sure that high quality was maintained throughout the job. In fact, he did a lot of the most crucial work himself. They gave me a copy of all the work details. This documented types of work and man hours spent, day-by-day, as well as cost of materials.

They accomplished more in just a few hours than I was able to do in 30 years at the first house. They were polite and hard-working. They even dumped two buckets of very smelly water that had sat all winter. I suggested to Bill that it get dumped in the front next to the driveway, but his suggestion was much better--pour it in the new bed in the backyard where passersby wouldn't smell it. Thanks for that! The yards look much better thanks to their hard work.
Description of work:
The above cost was for work on TWO separate residences. Bill (Sir William) and his crew of five strong young men worked 3-1/2 hours at the first house and one hour at the second house. They removed HUGE weeds, formed beds, placed dirt & mulch in beds and around the front dogwood tree, trimmed many bushes & ivy, planted annuals & divided and replanted old plants, filled in many large bare areas in the backyard grass with top soil, removed/repositioned old plastic landscape borders, removed and sawed up RR ties, removed dead plants, bagged everything and took it to the curb--that was the first house. At the second house, they only had an hour but were able to rake and weed a large area, place mulch, and saw many large lower branches from an aging evergreen and bundle them and take to the curb. They also were kind enough to remove about 30 bags of dirt & mulch from my SUV and place them in the garage at each house.

Let me say that I paid $376.00 for two workers, and it was worth every penny. They were here for 4 hours, and I was extremely satisfied.. It was a very hot day and the work was extremely difficult and hard!. I can't believe how strong Nathan is! Most of the roots that were dug up had been in the ground for well over ten years, and Nathan was just about pulling them out with his bare hands, after they were loosened up with a shovel. The owner was very clear about the pricing and what the costs would be. It was an extra cost for hauling anything away, so my husband was able to do clean-up and take care of having everything hauled away himself therefore, we were able to save money. I would recommend their services to anyone, and I will have them come back to do more work for me again. .

Mr. Toll arrived with a crew of 6 and reviewed with me all that needed to be done. He helped me contact a local business to arrange for delivery of a truckload of mulch. His crew removed all the bushes and plants that did not survive the severe winter weather. He went to the local Home Depot and purchased new bushes and flowering plants for me. His crew worked until well after dark to plant all the new foliage. He gave me instructions on how to best care for the new plants.

I was coming up to the end of November and started worrying about how I would be able to prepare my gardens for the winter. My small tree in front of the house got hit hard last winter with the soil all around it blown away and the roots showing on top of the ground!
I was very concerned about this tree and not letting anything happen to it because it is a focal point in my front garden. Bill and his crew did a great job. The crew listened to what I wanted done, were respectful and efficient. Everything I asked for was done the way I wanted it to be. The tree now has lots of protection for the upcoming winter months. The garden in front and back is also protected with the mulch and shredded leaves spread evenly throughout.
Bill also took the time to talk to me about a tree at the side of my house that I had questions about. I was worried it was growing too close to the house. Bill explained that it was a "shrub" and not a tree and would not grow deep like a tree would and affect my house.
I also asked Bill about a mound that appeared over the summer under my grass. Bill said some critters probably went underground and built a nesting area/home. He said it would be a small type animal and I didn't need to worry about it.
I feel great about Bill and his crew doing this work because I consider this company to be honest and hardworking. I know I can contact Bill at any time if I need help with my yard, trees or gardens.
THANK YOU BILL!
THANK YOU CREW!

The gutter over my side door was incorrectly installed to the point that water flowed off the roof going right over and completely missing the gutter. The downspout was also attached incorrectly pouring water into the crawl space. Bill cleaned out and raised the gutter to the correct height to catch the water from the roof. He also added parts to and properly attached the downspout to the house and directed the water away from the crawl space.

Description of work:
They dug out an ancient, rotting lamp post, two small trees |and ground the stumps. |This was in addition to the original purchase of 400 sq ft of Kentucky Blue Grass, |which was installed after they removed the existing sod. | |It went really well! In order to get the stump grinder in my back yard, they had to remove part of my fence. They then replaced it perfectly after the work was completed. I am completely satisfied. High quality work.

On the first day 7 men showed up and worked all day pulling weeds and cleaning up 4 large flower beds. We then planned for additional work the following week. The old drains were excavated by hand, and new drain lines laid in. The heavy rain we had was a real test. The beasement was dry for the first time in many years. We had estimates to do much more extensive work for hundreds of thousands of dollars to prevent water leaking into our 130-year-old basement. Thank goodness, we met Mr. Toll.

Bill had previously put in drains and re-landscaped my backyard so that my problem with standing water (sometimes 3-4 inches deep) was solved. My soil is clay and my backyard neighbor's lawn is about a foot higher than mine.He installed a whole drain system including pea gravel and pipes to move the water to my front yard. This year he finished by taking the drain down the driveway and letting it exit into the street. His system works!
Bill responded immediately when I called and let me know when he would be back to do the job. The yard looks great as he always cleans up and restores eveeythingl Hopefully, I won't need him again but will definitely contact him again if I do.

The crew did excellent work and communicated well, asking for clarification when needed. Bill, the owner, checked with me at several points during the work to make sure all was as desired. All workers were very courteous and professional. Very nice work. As often happens, I wish the cost had been less, but I certainly have no complaints about their service. I would work with them again.

Bill did an outstanding job. I'd contacted a few different places and was told they weren't available until next year, would only take extremely large jobs, or would perform an estimate and never get back to me. Bill was extremely prompt and providing both the estimate and getting the job scheduled. They were extremely prompt and completed the job in less than a day. I was impressed enough that any future landscaping will be going through them.

I am extremely pleased with the work Bill and his crew did at my house. He installed drains in my back yard to address my chronic flooding/standing water. He built a retaining wall along the back fence to bring the grade up to my neighbors. He moved the drain in my front yard so that it doesn't empty on my sidewalk which resulted in ice forming in the winter. Very attentive to not damaging the tree in the front yard.
He always explained what he was doing and gave options. Some of them can wait until next year.
The price he quoted was fair and there weren't any extra charges. The work was done on time and the clean up was excellent. My yard looks so much better than before.
I am so pleased that I am going to hire Bill to repair my garage and gutters.
Bill completed repairing my garage. Replaced boards around the whole perimeter with boards that matched the old ones. Installed two new windows.
Stripped the old paint and repainted. Looks so much better. He always cleaned up and was very professional. So pleased with the quality of his work. Extremely dependable, trustworthy and knowledgeable about everything he did.

This year I bought a number of iris bulbs from Sir Willliams Gardens and was incredibly impressed by the incredible quality, the personal service and the incredible expertise of the owner. The iris were beyond compare in quality and health and will grace the garden for many years. Bill also took the time to provide me with detailed planting instructions and extensive information related to iris needs. And waited for me long past available hours when I was delayed. I drove from Detroit and this was well worth the trip. It is rare that I so completely recommend a location but this is a dream for plant and flower lovers. From quality, to service and expertise...
not to mention the incredible pricing, this is the very best location I have ever found for plants and bulbs in the area.
Thank you,
Katheleen Lopez


What a pleasure and a learning experience it was dealing with Bill!
Thank you for taking the time to educate us and share your knowledge with us. We appreciate you showing us all of the plants! We are happy with our choices and look forward to more purchases in the future!

Last year I bought beautiful hydrangeas from Sir Williams Gardens. I was so impressed with the quality of the flowers, the excellent service and the knowledge of the owner, Bill Toll. He is an experienced horticulturist.
I will be using their business in the future.

Thank you, Bill, for the great prices and wonderful plant quality! It was a pleasure taking a tour of Sir William's Gardens last summer. And I appreciate the time you took to answer my many questions. You've given me so many ideas, that I look forward to filling my yard with your beautiful perennials. I also appreciate your very informative, and easy to use, website. I've done some comparison shopping - and your prices are the best I've found! Thank you for offering such beautiful and affordable plants.
