I have an acre lot in HPP with a newly built house and the lot needed weeded / cleared of junk trees and bushes. The lot was left basically as nature and lave left it so other than the house area and driveway, it is not level and there are low / high spots / holes and crevices. There were some trees and plants I wanted left alone - ohia, java, coconut, pineapple, mango, banana, monkey pod, breadfruit, lemon, some were quite small. I called Backyard Monkey, the owner, Justin, came and checked out the lot and gave me a verbal estimate after we walked the property and marked the plants and trees I mentioned so they would not be cut down or mowed over accidentally. I accepted the verbal and set a date. The crew with owner showed up the day scheduled (on time) the crew worked approx 6.5 hours the first day and 6 hours the second day. The lead crew member, Troy, was good about keeping me informed of what they were doing and why. The verbal estimate was what I was billed. I liked the work well enough I scheduled regular maintenance. They have been back once so far, and I am still pleased, with the work and the maintenance cost. The junk trees and brush they cut / cleared the first time were put into some of the lower areas / crevices and they did use poison on those areas as well as on the sleeper grass that was starting to grow around the house area. I have dogs and they were good about explaining how long I should keep them off / outof the areas sprayed. The maintenance was one day and they did check that none of the junk was growing back and sprayed more sleeper grass. I would also like to mention that we rented while building and Backyard Monkey was the company I called to trim the coconut trees on that property. I heard about the company initially through East Hawaii BNI."
