Tony Villatoro (owner of TnT Lawn and Maintenance) has done multiple houses in the neighborhood that I reside in and I was referred to him by a neighbor. His work is AMAZING! He goes above and beyond what is expected of him and does it for a fair price. He cuts the grass twice a month, along with weeding, pruning, planting and the occasional mulching. He's even pressure washed my drive way and back patio! His work is very thorough If you live near the Fort Lauderdale, he typically does his work around here. He's from Boynton Beach, so he also has many clients in and around that area as well. His contact number is (302) 761-3217

The Best Service in Years

Sq Ft of Lawn: 300
We were recommended by a friend and called Capitol Property Development's Landscaping Division in DC...the initial cost was about $1,200, but their service was outstanding. They planted all of our new flower beds, trimmed and pruned about 4 large trees, removed wild ivy and all...our yard is like day and night. The workers are polite and work very hard. The owner was lovely from the first estimate. We and three of our friends have all signed up for monthly service--which is twice per month. I am quite satisfied and would recommend again and again.
