HARRISONS OF YORK LANDSCAPING
Sam and workmen were very polite, I was given a fixed price for the landscaping even though I added on a few extra jobs. They worked extremely hard and did a thorough job, no cut corners here! They gave the pathways a final pressure wash and left the job clean and tidy as promised. Would I recommend Sam and the workmen to others, Yes, I would, they did an excellent job!
