    5.0 Bruce T. Prairie Village, KS

    Juan and his crew were very skilled and professional with a tree removal and pruning of a big Oak tree that was over our house. Zero mishaps and the cleanup was impecable.

    This is the SECOND time I have used Juan Carlos and his hardworking and professional team, and I feel very guilty for not leaving a review 1st time around. The specific project heading option is "gardening" on this site. A more accurate heading would be "Land reclamation from the jungle into which it had become." Honestly, I had become so demoralized looking at the jungle taking over my back yard that I was at a complete loss what to do, and then I remembered I had used J.C. Garay's services with government Covid money previously provided in the interests of "sharing the love" in 2020. This time there was also a mass of SUBSTANTIAL construction related debris due to the prior replacement of a large deck. So, Juan Carlos came out and priced this job at the weekend (unbelievably!) upon which we shook hands and he and his team duly showed up when we had agreed and removed AND disposed of this seemingly impassable jungle and HUGE construction/deck debris. The whole process was incredibly swift, because of ALL of their hard work, diligence and access to the heavy equipment required to reduce this undergrowth to a distant memory. Seriously it's like it was never there and the relief I feel is still palpable. I cannot say enough good things about this gentleman and his team of diligent and dedicated employees. More importantly I will have absolutely no hesitation in hiring J.C. Garay Tree & Lawn Service in the future. The value he provides is nothing short of ASTONISHING in this day and age. A huge hats off to Juan Carlos and his employee community. I use the word community here because I got a real sense of his leadership of them and the responsibility he has towards keeping them together as a team who provide exemplary work. Thank you very much Juan Carlos and VERY WELL DONE. It's a real pleasure doing business with you, because, if nothing else, you are a man of your word. My very best wishes for all your future endeavors ;)

    These men are incredible. Juan is a man of his word and runs his team like a fine swiss watch. Honestly I've seldom seen anything so efficient. Everyone knows their job and performs flawlessly. They showed up when they said they would and removed 6 very large oak trees complete with stumps from our property in a safe and completely non-dramatic manor. They have the skills, the tools and the work ethic to get the job completed quickly. When finished with the work on our property they left it cleaner than it was when they had arrived. All was completed and they were gone in less than 6 hours. Amazing people with an amazing work ethic. If you add the fact they're licensed, Insured and have all the proper equipment and know how to utilize it correctly and......well... what else can I say? Oh...one more thing, he was our best bid. If you need work, call these guys, I promise you certainly won't be sorry! Thank you JC and team, your professionalism is really rare these days. Rest assured, we'll be calling again as soon as we need more work! Thank you, Christy Compton and Jessica Taylor

    Mr. Garay and his team was very professional, timely, and courteous. They topped a large tree and trimmed another. The price was reasonable and removal of debri was done well. I highly recommend JC Garay's company. I am very pleased with their work.

    They arrived early with a large crew, worked quickly and efficiently, removed the tree and stump like they were contracted to and then left the yard immaculate - cleared of all twigs and leaves!
