"Very busy contractor but explains his timeline up front and if you give enough lead time the work product is worth the wait!"

"Friend Landscaping was very professional! They done wonderful work (In 100 degree heat) and
cleaned up completely every day they were here! His prices were very affordable compared to their
competitors."

"Everything turned out even better than I hoped. Bill was excellent to work with and offered several suggestions to ensure I ended up happy with the end result. Great communication through the entire process, and he shows up when he says he will which is often rare when dealing with landscapers or even contractors in general. I would highly recommend."

"Bill showed up on time and got to work right away. He and his worker removed and replaced my retaining wall in just a few days. The new timber retaining wall was built to last, with deadmen every four feet and with rock and a perforated pipe for water drainage. Before they left, they made sure to thoroughly clean the area. Throughout the project, Bill was happy to explain the details of the project. Bill was always easy to get in touch with even when I wasn't able to be at home. I would definitely recommend Bill to anyone who is looking for someone to handle a landscaping project."

"Bill was fantastic to work with. We had been trying to remove the concrete along the side of our house for almost nine months and couldn't get other contractors to respond to our calls, and the contractor we had lined up to do the work never followed through. Bill was able to get the work done quickly when we needed it, and did a great job. I would highly recommend Friend Landscaping for any landscaping needs - good quality and great customer service!"

"In every instance in which I have dealt with Friend Landscaping and Bill Friend, they have been courtesy, professional and very prompt in responding to my needs. Bill recently came to my house the weekend before the 4th of July when my pond pumps stopped working. He knew my wife wanted the pond operating over the 4th of July weekend for our guests. Even though he had other work, he was able to come over within 24 hours of my call to assist. I am unable to make an evaluation of the price of Friend Landscaping services because I do not know of another company that is willing to come service my pond so I have no ability to make a price comparison. However, I feel the prices charged by Friend Landscaping are fair and I plan to continue using this company."

"They came every time it snowed more than a couple inches and did a great job of removing the snow for us. The owner called when it snowed less than 2 inches to ask whether or not we wanted them
to come or not."

"Bill is very friendly. Called ahead prior to a potentially snowstorm to inform
me potentially it could take 3 swipes to keep me drive clear to be sure & wanted the jobs done."

Lynda H.

"I am so glad I contacted him for my landscaping to-do list. He came right away to do an estimate and the amount was very reasonable. He let me know the day before when to expect him. When he came he got right to work and did a great job. He was quick and efficient and when I added a couple small things he didn't charge me any more. I was really impressed how clean he left everything too. He also talked me through what to do with the landscaping I still have. He was very friendly (no pun intended) and easy to work with!"

"On time - cleared driveway - very well done."

Susan S. 

Altoona, Iowa



"Called Bill the day after a snow storm with the hopes that they could help remove snow from our drive, etc. since our usual service provider left us high and dry (or snowed in!). He came out within a few hours after I called and did a great job clearing up our snow, so I asked them to keep our house on the list for all future snow falls! We aren't going to miss our old snow removal/landscaping company :)"

Aleisha S.

"I called Bill Friend after a heavy rain flooded our sunroom off of the patio. Being very afraid it could happen again, something needed to be done now. He answered on my first try and actually came out to look at the problem the very same day! That was amazing to me and so helpful. He assessed the problem and told me definitively what it would take to fix it and approximately what it would cost. He even waited around a bit for my wife to get home so he could explain it to her. He was busy, so couldn't get to the job for a while, but offered to come back in a couple of days to do a temporary fix so I could stop worrying about getting flooded again. That is exactly what he did. Within three days I didn't have to worry so much about the next rain and we were on his calendar to get the whole job done. That kind of responsiveness out of a service provider is absolutely unheard of to me! We were ready to hire him on the spot with no other estimates. The work was done exactly as he said it would be, and when he said it would be. It was done well and it works. Bill was courteous, thoughtful and cleaned up as if they had never been here. There were no negatives. This is a high quality, human service oriented company. They actually seemed to care about my project!"

"Very busy contractor but explains his timeline up front and if you give enough lead time the work product is worth the wait. Pricing seemed a bit high, but for good work worth any extra spent."

"Bill was out early to clear my driveway and sidewalk. He did a great job."

Nancy P.

"Friend's waited until the snow had ended, then removed it. They even bought my garbage cans in
from the curb for me! After my previous company quit residential snow removal, I was afraid I could not
find someone else. Friend's answered the phone, assured me that they could do the job and they did!"

"In researching landscapers online, I saw Friend Landscaping right here on Angies list. His company had numerous very good reviews, and very well rated with BBB, so I contacted him for a quote for landscaping repairs that we were planning on needing to be done in the spring time.

When he came out, we discussed the construction work that had been completed which had torn up all the landscaping. The conversation went to the problems that I'd had with previous contractors in getting the job done, so I still had to get the pool assembled and deck built before I could have him do the grass re-seeding and other repair work. It was at that point that I found out that he had experience assembling swimming pools and offered to get it assembled now rather than waiting until spring. Long story short, he came back the very next day to start the work and had the entire pool fully assembled in 3 days. Cost was higher than I would have paid a swimming pool company to do it in the spring, however he was willing to get it done right away, so that it was ready to go in the spring.

I started my conversation with him just looking for a landscaper to do some repair work, but found out he does so much more work than just landscaping, and got my pool up months ahead of anyone else being willing to do the work, and also spent several hours discussing other items on the project list unrelated to the pool install that I was paying him to do. Lots of very good ideas on deck design/construction that I hadn't considered, as well as proper landscaping materials/ideas around and underneath the deck once built . Extremely professional folks to work with, and provided a huge amount of extra thoughts/ideas on my deck assembly, landscaping repairs, etc. Well worth the price paid in my mind, and I definitely will be getting a quote from him in the spring to do the actual landscaping work, the reason I contacted him in the first place."

"They did a good job I use them every year."

Bob K.

"Our home had settled so we needed to regrade around the foundation. We received a few other bids but decided to go with Friend Landscaping. Bill seemed the most knowledgable and willing to do the job. Very responsive. He kept us informed throughout the entire job and answered all our questions. He offered some great suggestions as well. We would recommend Friend Landscaping and plan on hiring Bill again this spring for additional landscaping needs."

Jason P.

"Was neat, professional and rented to his work."

Dennis R.

Des Moines, Iowa



"Bill and his team did a nice job.  I was very grateful he worked hard to squeeze me in.  I made several calls to landscapers, some called back, a few showed up to give an estimate, and Bill was the only one who got back to me after knowing I only had a rinky dink job (but a very big deal to me!).    He also had good ideas about drainage for my yard which I really appreciated.   I will call him in the future for other projects."

Jill L.

"Friend landscaping started project earlier than originally projected. Always called to verify time and
work was acceptable. Made great suggestions which we would not have thought about."

Larry B.

"Bill & his team were very professional: they got the work done in a timely manner before the
approximated deadline and went far above our expectations."

Kel M.

Bondurant, Iowa




"I called Bill to get a bid for yard grading. With the recent storms, I was concerned about the possibility of water coming into the house. Bill reviewed our options but recommended we wait as he did not see the grading as an immediate need. If we have any future yard or snow removal needs I will definitely call Bill as I respect his honesty. He could have easily sold me on spending money on a project that is not an immediate need."

Mindy S.

Clive, Iowa



"I picked up the business card at a garden show and contacted them for an estimate. I did not seek
another estimate for a better known vendor and have no regrets. The work was done in one day and Bill
has followed up. About my opinion of the job, I will use his company again and again."

Lois C.
