What Other People Are Saying

Black Belt Landscaping has great pricing along with being professional, timely, and consistent. The guys zip right through my lawn and keep it tidy. Now I don’t have to organize my days off around the weather in order to cut the grass or worse, spend an entire weekend raking leaves. I can’t believe I didn’t look into professional lawn care sooner. They definitely deserve the 5 stars!

I’ve been a customer of Alex’s for a couple of years now and can’t say enough about him and his business. Alex responds to my messages in a timely manner. He schedules well and actually shows up when he says he will. My yard looks like a showplace afterwards and his crews are always friendly and polite. I don’t know if his costs are similar to other services- never considered looking elsewhere after the first time I engaged his services- but I feel like it’s worth every dollar! I highly recommend him and his business without reservation!

- Sandra Sotak

We have had Black Belt Landscaping come to our home regularly for yard cleans ups (spring and fall) and we could not be more pleased with their work. They are thorough, prompt, and affordable. They go above and beyond. When they were last here I had forgotten they were coming and had left several things out around the yard. They picked up chairs, toys, and rakes and neatly stacked them before doing an amazing yard clean up for us. Highly recommend!
