3/20/2017 – David Sekalias
Every year I\'m impressed with the work Selvin and his team perform. His guys are punctual and efficient every week. Last year a tree blew over in my front yard and he personally came to my house to quote the cutting job. He came in with a reasonable price and had it done the next day. I also used him to place sod in the front and back and it has since blended in perfectly. Competition is strong in my neighborhood for landscaping services and there are many other providers. Selvin sets himself apart with professionalism, timeliness and customer service.

It went well. We used the existing brick and built the patio within the existing footprint. The only
addition was a stair from the house and onto the patio. Everything went extremely well. The owner,
Selvin, was responsive and did a good job of guiding me through the process. The whole project took a total of 4 days. I am really pleased with the end result.

06/06/2016 – Andy Szlezak
At our first meeting to discuss my sidewalk concerns, Mr. Selvin suggested what needed to be done, (compared to other "experts" who had own ideas on the project and provided very high prices) gave me a fair price, and I was quite pleased that project was completed within days of accepting his proposal. He's a man of his word, fair, punctual, and professional, all the while being quite pleasant to work with. He values your time!
I am pleased to join the other reviewers who were fortunate to have used his service. Don't hesitate to call him, you won't be disappointed. I waited to see how the work holds up after winter and it looks great.

Description of work:
We hired this company to remove a large section of garden that took up most of the yard, transplant some plants/flowers to the front yard, and lay new sod. Selvin came out and gave us a detailed estimate that clearly stated all work that would be done. We signed the contract and put in a deposit. They arrived on time and worked efficiently. Selvin suggested ideas on how to re-design the existing landscaping. The work was done pretty quickly and the clean-up was great as well. Most of the transplanted plants are still blooming. It has been about 6 weeks and the sod looks really healthy - the yard looks great.

The work was completed on schedule and looks great. There was a problem with clean up, in that my front yard was caked in a thick limestone dust after they left. When I called Selvin about it, he himself came out with a rake, blower, and hose the next morning to clean up. Professional and reliable service.
Description of work:
Selvin and his team of three put in a flagstone walkway that wrapped around the back of our home, as well as a french drain underneath that provides drainage from the backyard where we have had water pooling significantly during rainfall around to the front yard.

A12/09/2016 – Cathy Rotella
They plowed my residential driveway after this recent snowfall. Came out after we were in bed, worked around a car that was parked in the back but on the driveway, and cleared the whole driveway off. They also did the front sidewalk. They did not wake us up. We were very happy to wake up to a clear driveway. I have not been charged yet, but I am sure they will be fair in the pricing for the job that they did. I would recommend them to any homeowner looking for help with the snow this year.

Sep 21, 2016 by Veronica Cortes

Selvin explained every step of the process before, during and after the work was done. He was very professional and on time with his crew. The second day they flattened the gravel and the Village came out to oversee it and make sure everything was done according to the Village Code. The third day very early in the morning the cement truck was out laying out the cement and Selvin and his crew were working together to smooth out the foundation. It was real team work!
Description of work:
I had my concrete driveway completely broken down, which was in dire need of total overhaul, and removed on 9/12/16. Selvin and his crew showed up early, at the crack of dawn, and got to work until the entire driveway was expeditously broken down and piled up by the side of the curb. It was later carried away by a dump truck like Selvin said it would be. It took two trips to remove all the broken down pieces. Everything was cleaned up and nothing was left on the street. His crew swept the last bits of debris.

Selvin and his guys did a great job on my 1,000 square foot hardscape project. It included a fire pit, a small retaining wall, and some seeding walls. Also included was a pergola. Selvin was always responsive to any questions I had about the project, and also made some very good recommendations. He worked with me on some revisions that came up during the project. They completely restored the grass and sod that had been disrupted during the excavation process. The project turned out great, and I would definitely recommend this company to anyone considering this type of project.

Nov 03, 2015 by DAVE DUFF

I was very pleased with the service I got. They were friendly, very prompt in returning my calls, coming out to look at the property to give me a quote and emailing me the paperwork. They were right on top of getting approved by the village to do the work and having JULIE come out to inspect the property. There was some tree roots that caused the destruction of the old concrete and during the quoting process they agreed to remove the roots for a small add on to the price. It turned out to be a lot of work for them and made hiring these guys all the more worth it. They finished the job within a week and it looks great. This is a project that I had been planning to have done for a while and I have no regrets with my choice of having Selvin's do the work. I will definitely keep them in mind for future projects.

We have been using Selvin's Landscaping for two years. Their work is excellent and the price is fair. They do all of our regular yard work including cutting, grass pickup, edging and fertilizing. This past winter, also plowed our driveway.I have recommended them to several neighbors. I believe it's important that the owner is present when the team is working and this is almost alway true with Selvin. The service date mentioned in the above survey segment was their last work date. They will be on our property, weather permitting, every Thursday during the growing season.

Sep 12, 2015 by kurt johnson

We had a new brick paver driveway installed replacing an old asphalt one as well as new brick paver walkways and patio. Also had old cracked garage floor removed and new one poured. Additionally had new front door steps reconfigured and brick trim installed around plantings and trees. New flowering plants were also installed in several area of the back yard.
This was a pretty extensive project that ended up taking a month and a half.. The project was started in mid-June and the endless rain at that time was challenging. Selvin was there every step of the way, always explaining what was going on, and making suggestions for options to make the end result even better. Every member of his crew was always professional, knowledgeable and hard working. At the end of the work, everything was completely cleaned up and appropriate grass planted and sod installed. The end result is spectacular. I would not hesitate to call Selvin again for any landscaping work. We are also currently using his weekly lawn service and plan to use his snow clearing service this coming winter

Sep 12, 2015 by Robyn Ortiz

I contacted Selvin's because of their reviews and based on their location to my parents home. I hired this service to handle snow removal for my parents. Based on my dad's updates, the snow removal was done on time. The owner was responsive and easy to work with when I explained that I was hiring the service for a different address but I wanted the bills to come to me. It was handled correctly from the beginning and I will continue to use them. Because I originally contacted them shortly after one of the early snowstorms of this past season, they went out right away to remove snow from the driveway and sidewalks and then continued to do so based on the parameters they have set for the number of inches etc. I am glad I called early on in the season because it was a brutal winter and I felt better knowing my dad was not out there trying to remove the snow himself.

May 02, 2015 by Maureen

Selvin and his team removed 4 evergreen bushes and 5 spirea plants, replaced them with plants I provided and remulched all of my front and side landscaping with red mulch. In my back yard they created a 12'x17' mulch area for me, weeded several more flower beds, removed weeds and creeping magnolia from another area about 10'x12' and mulched all of that, too. Selvin even let me make a few changes on the day of the work (Thank you, Selvin!!).
Member Comments: We can't wait to have Selvin and his team back next year so that we can hopefully do completely new landscaping, concrete removal of our old patio and sidewalks and have them put in a new, quality patio and seating walls in for us.

They were great! They accomplished everything I asked them to do and were very professional about their work. Mr. Selvin first met with me before scheduling their work and we reviewed the jobs I wanted completed for this fall cleanup. At the appointed day, they arrived on time and Mr. Selvin and his crew cleared weeds and brush, cut down a small dead tree, pruned a tree, and completely cleaned out a very large flower bed that was covered with weeds and dead plants. They mixed in mulch that I provided and now my flower bed is ready for planting next spring! I will definitely use this company again!
