What Our Customers Are Saying
We value our customers and do everything in our power to deliver a great experience at Suncrest Gardens. Here’s a look at what people are saying about those experiences.
That’s the only word that comes to mind when describing the work of Suncrest’s John, Eric & David yesterday (9/23/19). They turned our embarrassing driveway into an attractive area we can be proud of. As for the many “little” items we needed done… they understood exactly what we wanted and delivered above and beyond our expectations!
Thank you, Suncrest for such hard-working, likeable and professional workers.
Lynn Hayes & Jim Rupert
I recently visited your garden center and purchased Fall decorations for my home. Suncrest Gardens is an inviting facility and your staff are very pleasant and helpful. I also live in a condo association and your landscape management department does an excellent job at maintaining our grounds. Suncrest Gardens appreciation for the customer is reflected in how your facility is maintained and managed.
I would like to compliment the installers of our Colorado Blue Spruce tree on July 24, 2012. In short, Dennis and Adam did a superb job of planting the tree. We appreciated their earlier same day phone call to confirm the installation time. They were on time and were patient while my wife and I took some extra time to determine the orientation of the tree. We were also pleased with the quality of the three yards of topsoil that was delivered at the same time of the installation.

We recently had some yard work done by your Fred and his attendant. They weeded, trimmed and edged our front beds and then mulched. I would be remiss if I did not let you know how pleased we were with their efforts and the final results. They worked through the rain and not once complained. I must say you rank high on the list for providing above-average customer service.
Many thanks for an outstanding job that Suncrest Gardens did on our recent patio project! From the initial consultation through the design process and the actual construction, your associates were skilled and professional. One measure of the successful execution of all the ideas that came together in this project is the number of compliments from our neighbors.
