These are actual testimonials sent to Doran's Landscape, by satisfied customers and clients.

Dear Ned
I want to thank you for the positive experience that I had with Doran's Landscape regarding the construction of my brick patio. Jason, your architect, answered all my questions, was responsive to my phone calls and even took me to the brickyard to select the color of bricks. your construction crew was professional and the quality of their work was outstanding.
My intent was to replace my wooden deck with another wooden deck, but I was not looking forward tot he maintenance involved with wood. your advertisement, delivered to my door, provided me with an alternative to wood, i.e., bricks. No maintenance is involved with bricks.
I could not be more satisfied with the beautiful patio. it defiantly will add value to the house. Please express my appreciation to your entire staff.

Dear Mr. Doran,
I'm sorry this note is so long in coming, but I finally was able to make time!
In the last few years, we have had a lot of work done to our home, and many companies make promises they never keep. so now, whenever I have to hire someone for a job, I do it with much dread.
However, dealing with your company was completely different. Your employees, specifically Jason and his crew, were talented and amazing!
Every person doing the job at our house was polite, they all seemed to have a marvelous rapport with each other. And, to top it all off, the work was started the day after the contract was signed! I have never been so surprised and pleased in all the experiences I've had to deal with since we've owned this home.
Thank you, Mr. Doran, for caring about your clients. and also I thank you for Jason, his crew and the rest of your staff. I will be more than happy to recommend you to anyone who is looking for beautiful quality work.

Dear Mr. Ned Doran,
I am sure you have heard this before; your company does an excellent job on our lawns and landscaping. this is an 80 unit Condo complex. every year you have done a superb job and is a real pleasure working with such a competent company. You do what you say you are going to and at a competitive price.
As a management company it is very important to me that we hire good company's that give the service the customer is paying for.
I have told you this on the phone and felt I must put this in writing. Most of us do not take the time out of out busy days to write such a letter. However we always take the time when things are not going well. thank you for your excellent work.
Please feel free to share this letter with any customers or potential customers.
Thank you again,

To whom it may concern:
Rarely can I write a reference letter with more enthusiasm that I can for Ned Doran and Doran's Landscape.
I have known Ned for more than twenty years - he is my wife's nephew - and have thus had the opportunity to see him grow into a mature, professional and highly ethical businessman he has become. Knowing that,in my business, I have contact with many landscaping firms, ned began at an early age to ask me about what it took to be successful in that highly competitive business. I had ale ready been amazed by Ned's demonstrated work ethic as he, as a young boy, had set up his own local neighborhood landscaping business and developed a reputation for reliable and courteous service. It did not surprise me that Ned felt he had found his calling.
Now, a decade after starting Doran's Landscape following his graduation from college, Ned has dramatically grown his business, and established himself as a respected professional.
Over the years, I have seen many young people start their careers with an entrepreneurial glint in their eye, anxious to develop a successful business they can be proud of. I can honestly say that Ned stands out as a shining example of entrepreneurship at its American best. Through hard work, commitment and a recognition of how important it is to satisfy the customer, Ned has grown Doran's Landscape to become the successful operation I know it to have become.
I would wholeheartedly and without reservation recommend Ned and Doran's Landscape to anyone in need of high quality landscaping services.

Dear Ned,
We were just thrilled by the end result of your landscaping efforts. Mr. Kostner said, and I quote, "wow, this looks like the set of a movie!" We were able to show him a larger dose of Chicago hospitality as a result of you and your staff coming to our rescue. Thank you , thank you, thank you.
You did a great job and we hope you will return our calling the spring (or sooner ) to come to our rescue again. Your guys are our heroes! Please bill us for your work.
Very Best Wishes,

Dear Ned,
I wanted to let you know how pleased we have been with the service and care we received from your company. You have very well trained and dependable people. Our house has never looked better.
Your fall cleanup was done yesterday. I was impressed with the good job that was done, on a very cold day.
Please thank your staff for us!

Mr Edmund Doran:
Dear Sir,
We are extremely pleased with our new patio, your design & crew are fabulous.
The install crew had to work around some obstacles, road construction and landscape setbacks, but it did not stop them. The crew worked diligently and neatly to do a superb job; actually better than we thought.
All the neighbors were impressed with the work done and the clean up of the job site and street. Thank you
