Craaazy Great Work! – I've know Aaron for 4 years. He lives down the block from my parents' house, and we have a deal that he can store supplies and park a truck in our side lot, and in return, he maintains the yard for us. I've also contracted with him over the years to move a cedar tree, trim trees and put in a flower bed. Most recently, I just had him trim the elm trees at my house in SE Austin. I bought the 30 year old house 4 years ago, and the 12 elms surrounding it had not been trimmed in years. He estimated the job at $1200 for 2 days' work. It turned into 3 days, and I told him to charge me what it was worth. Even I had not realized how overgrown the trees were, until I saw them trimmed back to their more upright, natural shape. He charged me $1500. Two guys, 8 hour days, that's $31.25 per hour, billable, and I'm sure he has to take some of that for equipment and truck maintenance. Aaron has always been very polite with me, although he can sometimes be a bit abrupt when he is busy. I can recommend him without reservations.
Years of Excellent Service & Professional Treatment – Well we've been with Crazy Aaron for over 10 years now and had only excellent service! Sure there's been the occasional glitch- (as happens with any service) --but Aaron is the kind of person who speedily rectifies any problems.
In my experience, Aaron has always been polite, professional, and shown a committment to excellence.
Moreover, i've never heard him utter a disrespectful word. In fact he's always given superb service with an extraordiarily positve attitude-- which is one of the reasons his company still mows our yard and does our yard work.
The "CRAZY" part is how far he goes way out of his way to assure excellent service.
Best Yard Service! Crazy Aaron Rocks! – Thank you Crazy Aaron for excellent work on our yard and trees!
Very pleased! Dont know what the last review was about, but they must really be crazy.
See you again soon!!!!
Rude, flaky, threatening and obscene. – Even though he was slow to return my call and give an estimate, I hired Crazy Aaron because he was local and independent to de-weed my yard. I should have suspected something when I came home to find my glass top table shattered and the evidence hastily tossed over the fence. Aaron apologized and replaced the table so I entered into a monthly yard maintenance trial agreement with him. After that first maintenance service Aaron decided any future service would cost five times his initial estimate, effectively, leaving me hanging. I was understandably upset so I sent a terse, (yet clean) note with my prompt payment expressing my disappointment in his unprofessionalism. A week later I received an angry voicemail from Aaron expounding his innocence in the situation and berating me for the terse note I included with his payment. He signed off his message with, " So, F*ck you A*s hole!" (though he did not include the verbal equivalent of asterisks)
Crazy Aaron's lack of professionalism, flakiness, and downright hostility should not only be avoided but feared. I think his moniker 'Crazy Aaron' may be more than just an advertising gimmick.
Rude and non-informative – I heard so many good things about Crazy Aaron, and since I have a yard that needed some major help, I thought he would be the man for the job. But since his website does not give ANY information (or at least I couldn't find it after searching for 10 minutes) about his service area, I decided to email him about some services.
I found his correspondence to be unprofessional and rude, all to find out that he does not service my area. It would have been nice to at least recommend some places that DO service my area, rather to be so terse and unhelpful.
I am not saying he doesn't do great work. But my experience interacting with him was negative enough, that I am not sure I would have used him anyway.
For Great Lawn Service You Have to Go Crazy! – I can not speak more highly of Crazy Aaron and his team. I've used him a few times in the past to landscape my lawn and have been extremely pleased each time. The latest was over the holidays when we had to quickly get our lawn in shape to place our house on the market on Jan 3. Even though he was about to take off for a holiday break with his family he sent his crew out on a moments notice to completely clean and freshen up the lawn, including new mulch in all the beds. Then a week later he sent them out again on Jan 2 to lay sod and clean it up once again the morning the pictures were to be taken. I can't tell you how much we appreciate him coming through for us when we needed it most. The pictures of our lawn look incredible and at the open house yesterday EVERYONE commented on how nice the yard looked. I think it makes us stand out among the other houses for sale. His bid even came in lower than he originally quoted. Thanks Crazy! We'll use you again and again, even at our new house. Highest recommendation!
Wonderful Experience – I had seen his signs for years, then my neighbors were very happy with him, so I gave him a try too.
WOW! Aaron and his team did a great job on our yard. We had been looking at our backyard for years, wanting to make it a great place for our kids. They quickly transformed it to a beautiful area, beyond our expectations.
very flaky – I think it's great that Aaron's got an Austin company and is local. However, I 'm not sure I would recommend his service. He says or quotes one thing and something else happens or it's just plain not done. I really try to choose an Austin or local business, but in this case, I'm not sure I would recommend the Crazy Aaron lawn service.
If you want reliability I would go with someone else.
What happened??! – I've been waiting on a quote from Crazy Aaron for over a month. He came out to see the site right away but since has yet to deliver. Each time I asked for a quote, he said he was "faxing it over today" but still no response. I've called him several times with both numbers he gave me and feel bad each time because I know (and he knows) he still hasn't done what he said he was going to do. I get the feeling he doesn't want the job? I can take a hint. I was expecting a beautifully landscaped yard by summer and wanted to give Crazy Aaron a try after reading previous reviews...but not anymore. What a waste of my time! Poor business = No business.
Exceptional service – Just have to recommend Crazy Aaron's landscaping service. He is pleasant to work with, reliable, and also thinks beyond the immediate need to the bigger picture. We needed a retaining wall in a steep and cramped section of the yard. Aaron's results did more than solve the problem, they added beauty and value.
Wish we could find this level of service for other home maintenance needs!
