Everything he planted has died. He overcharged me and his work was shoddy. He hires local day labor, and I had a very pregnant lady doing heavy work in the pouring rain. He brought eight Mandevillas and told me they cost him $600. Tried to tell me they were perrinials (not). The topsoil he brought in was probably from a site where soil was dumped, and six months later there were corn stalks in my back yard. I told him exactly what I wanted, but since he didnt take any notes, he got it all wrong. The guy is a con artist/fraudster. Please find somebody more reputable!

Used Mike Riley's landscaping and it was the worst ever! First, he doesn't come on time and he tells you he'll be there, but expect him to come late into the evening, and when it gets dark.

Why? So you don't see how messy his work is and you pay an unbelievable price because he never gives you a receipt. He lies to you to tell you how much he paid and then when you call the nursery and find out it's at least $200 more than he's charging you.

My experience with Mike has been pretty eye-opening since him and I were friends almost 9 years . I've read bad reviews about him and I really didn't think that he would do that to a friend but he did !!

Mike Riley landscape scammed, lied to me and literally robbed me of a $400.

He planted two trees for me last year, took my oak trees that I had in my yard and sold them, and then lied to me and said he gave them to a neighbor! Then he asked for at least $800 for two trees, that he potted that are literally dead.

I gave him the benefit of the doubt and asked him to go get several bushes for me, and he did show up however, it was so late in the day, and I had to work so hard to pot my own flowers and bushes. Not worth it. He uses unknown people to help him, don't even do quality work.

He runs a scam, up charges you even his own friends!! He could care less about you or your garden or front / back yard. Uses multiple names on who he is ,so I'm posting pictures of what he looks like. He is white guy, bald, big beer belly you can't miss him.!!

Imagine losing more money and if you had a larger project than mine.

Mike Riley landscape is company that is a scam. Mike Riley doesn't know how to do anything right. Beware if you plan on a larger project such as a pool, pool plaster, fence or any hardscape. Mike does a lousy job on fences.

He hires criminals to work and they don't even know how to do any of the basics of landscaping. Beware.

Run and use a true and tried landscape company not Mike Riley landscape.

He is a professional liar, scammer and a fraud. Report him to the local police.

Mike Riley's landscaping is a fraud. If his lips are moving then he's lying!

Anything you give him will be a waste of your money. Mike Riley's landscaping scammed us out of $18K a few years ago. Left my yard in a mess with stuff everywhere. Posted several reviews but he was smart enough to get Google to give him a new page.

Now he has 0 reviews. Be careful with this dude
