    4.5 Michelle J. Elmhurst, IL

    There was not work, this was just a paid consult of the health of the trees and to provide a proposal for the recommendations. He's a one man operation and busy, so take note.

    4.5 Harry K. Western Springs, IL

    Ralph is an encyclopedia of information about trees and lawns. We hired him to save a tree and improve our lawn. My neighbor hired him too.

    We are in process as the soil samples are out for diagnosis. He is very knowledgeable. I am so happy to have found him. I am sure he can help my maple.

    4.5 Rick V. Lisle, IL

    Amazing! One or two weeds the entire summer! Tree, shrubs, lawn are the best in the neighborhood! One of a kind for soil remedies to enhance the beauty of your flowers.

    5.0 Sally C. Lombard, IL

    I have 6 trees over 50 years old that I was worried would die. Ralph treated them last summer and this summer they look great!! I am EXTREMELY happy with everything that was done to get them back to health!!!!

    5.0 Bradley L. Plainfield, IL

    I have three ash trees in my backyard infested with emerald ash bores, one of which I was advised was beyond saving. I contacted Ralph and he recommended I clear off the mounds of mulch from around the trucks of the tree and a tree and shrub pesticide to attack the immediate problem. He then had an analysis of the soil done and recommended a custom fertilization program to help return the trees to health. All three trees look 100% healthier this year, and are on the road to recovery. Ralph knows his business and is great to work with.

    2.0 Katherine W. Palos Heights, IL

    Paid for a soil analysis and after numerous attempts to get a copy I have yet to receive.

    5.0 Peggy P. Fresno, CA

    Ralph is an extremely knowledgeable person when it comes to correcting the soil composition to make trees and shrubs vibrant and healthy again. His soil testing method and mixture of additives to correct the imbalances in the soil are amazing. He has literally brought trees and shrubs back from almost being dead! One amazing problem solver!!

    4.5 Arlington Heights, IL

    Excellent knowledge of trees, shrubbery, grass and plant life, as well as, chemical imbalances that lead to diseases and suboptimal growth and health. Was able to solve a number of issues with grass and poor performance on my landscaping, as well as, adapt a maintenance program. Reasonably cheap for the long term benefits rather than re-landscaping alternatives.

    What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

    1. Verify Trade License
      HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
    2. Verify Insurance
      As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
    3. Verification of State Business Filings
      For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
    4. Criminal Records Search
      HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.

      We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.

      We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
