Pickhardt has done an amazing job with our new lawn. They even check weekly sometimes when there is a problem to make sure everything is under control and looking good. We are very pleased with their services.....

University Park, FL
Very responsive to problems in the yard and reports given for individual visits.
Bradenton, FL
We have been using this service since 2010 and have been extremely pleased. At that time, they re-soded our entire lawn and they have provided weed prevention and maintenance ever since. They will conduct additional no-charge visits to combat any problem that may arise. If we have any questions or concerns, Vernie the owner, will make a personal visit and direct any steps necessary to control the situation. Great company !!
Longboat Key, FL
The owner is extremely knowledgeable about all kinds of pests and plant problems, and he instructs his workers who are then able to evaluate and treat the problem areas in your yard. If they can't solve the problem, Mr. Pickhardt himself will make a special trip to your yard to evaluate it. I've been a pleased customer for the past 6 years.
Bradenton, FL
Excellent customer service and they return phone calls. My lawn is taken care of when I'm not there because I am a snowbird.
Parrish, FL
These guys suck. Every 3-months or so when they're doing someone elses yard, they come over and hit all the nearby houses with their spam door hangers. They hang it on my front door, just inches away from my no soliciting sign that they ignore or cannot read because it's in English.

Because they cannot honor a simple request to not leave trash at my front door and they continue to do it every 90-days, I doubt they offer a good and honest service.

Grade: F
Recommendation: NO.
Great experience overall with our landscaped and sodded lawn.
Excellent customer service and amazingly affordable for the quality of service.
Pickhardt's highly trained and competent team have kept ahead of issues of concern that could harm our sizeable landscape investment. If ever a concern they respond promptly to resolve an issue and always educating at the same time.

Reliable, knowledgeable, responsive, reasonably priced.
Show up when expected...
Phone me letting me know when they are arriving...the same after they are finished....even called back couple of times and the individual never tried to "shoo" me off....
When we had an issue with synch bugs in our
lawn, your people replaced the grass and
fertilized at no extra cost and our grass is
growing back and looks great.
I have been using Pickhardt Professional Services for my home in Lakewood Ranch, Florida for almost 10 years. They always leave a note on what needs to be done, which is very little as they do most of the work. It is very rare I keep a vendor for 10 years, but Pickhardt has proven to be worth it and I do not believe the price has ever increased.
Grass is looking better than when i was maintaining it.
Couldn't ask for anyone better. Extremely pleased with their knowledge and services.
Dealing with Pickhardt has been a true pleasure. I never have to worry that my property is being neglected. Wonderful people to do business with.
Very knowledgeable about requirements for the care and treatment of landscaping in the difficult Florida climate.
Competent and will address any issue that comes up. Knowledgeable, professional and who's spray actually works. They are worth your business.
Very happy with services provided and staff very professional to deal with. I travel a lot and I don't worry about my yard because of Pickhardt.
My submission is divided into 2 catagories
1- Administrative / Customer Care. 5 STARS
i award Janielle 5 stars.Her professionalism , work ethics and attention to detail is exemplorary and should be recognized for outsanding performance.
2 .Technicians 3 STARS.
The techs are rotated frequently as opposed to when I first signed on with VERNIE who receives my utmost respect and award of excellance.The techs performance range from fair to good no single tech stands out as one of the best.One quality they all receive 5 stars is politeness. When I first signed on with Vernie years ago I had the best tech whose name escapes me. He was knowlagable and my lawn never looked better.He was a longtime employee who unfortunately took ill and could no longer work.
Overall I'm pleased and would recommend your services to others.

Respectfully Submitted,
Renato Sacchi.
Always attentive to our lawn condition even with us being away most of the year. Not many companies around that would bother themselves to do that. Very happy to be with Pickhardt! Gerald Hanna.
