  • Frank and his crew at almost perfect landscaping were a pleasure to deal with. They are taking care of two family plots at a local cemetery and are doing an amazing job. my family and I couldn’t be more pleased with the respect and care they used. They were very attentive and very professional and I would be happy to highly recommend them to anyone.

  • I had a great experience working with Frank Porter of Almost Perfect Landscaping. He was very responsive and helpful when I called and asked him questions about my lawn. In addition, he was very knowledgeable and let me know what needed to get done and what was not necessary. Another thing that impressed me was how quickly the work was done. I would highly recommend his company!

  • The owner, Frank, was extremely professional and attentive. He’s very knowledgeable, pleasant to work with, and it seems like he really cares about what he does. He’s great about staying in touch, both while we were planning the project and also to follow up after the job was done. We weren’t looking for anything major, just wanted to spruce up a few things to get the house ready to go on the market, and he was very helpful with suggestions. He did not try to up-sell me at all and even told me that a couple of things I was thinking of would not be worth doing just for resale purposes. The work we had done involved rerouting a downspout, improving a basement window well and some re-grading to fix a damp basement issue. He also replaced some shrubs. I highly recommend Almost Perfect. I wish I weren’t moving out of the area so that I could use them again!

  • When I bought my house I hired Almost Perfect Landscaping. Other Landscapers that I had used didn’t seem to “hear” what I wanted and follow through with it. The thing that impressed me about Almost Perfect was the pride they took accomplishing any request I asked them to do. Thats hard to find in todays generation. There is a worth ethic they have that most do not! I am very impressed and would recommend them 100%. AND…. I now use them for snow removal as well. Again.. so very happy!

  • Frank Porter and Almost Perfect are as good as it gets. I had been through all of the “BIG” landscapers in our area and things always started  out great and then after a while I was forgotten about. Frank has been giving me one on one attention for years. He has a short term and long term plan for your property at all times. He understands his clients, their needs and works with you on all aspects of landscape planning which includes the financial aspect. He’s also a really nice guy. He always calls me back, he always does what he says he’s going to do and he actually cares about doing a good job. You WILL NOT GO WRONG if you use Frank and his team.

  • Contacted Frank from Almost Perfect Landscaping 2 weeks ago for a job at my house, to remove stumps and plant new shrubs. he checked out job, gave me several options, then,gave me a price, he delivered the shrubs on schedule and installed them in a very challenging space around my pool. when I came home the entire job was done, the yard and drive way were clean, the bushes look great. Frank was an excellant guy to do business with. I would highly reccomend him. I will be doing more planting in spring and will call him first.
