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.
