"We had Summit remove our old mulch and lay some stone in its place. They were quick, the mess was cleaned up when they were done, and the price was the best I could find!!"

"Summit is SUPER. In the winter, I always know that I won't have any trouble with snow -- in fact, when we get nighttime snow, they are here in the dark plowing. And the sidewalks and drive are always done on time. Eric especially is great. He sprays for the health of the vegetation and also to keep creepy crawlies away. My wife has breathing problems and the first time he came around this past Spring to spray. I asked him if he would let us know ahead of time so we could close our windows. Well, he never needed another reminder. He's ring our doorbell to let us know that he'd be spraying later. With our windows shut, my wife had no ill effects Thanks to Eric and thanks to Summit."
