Steve T. from Overland Park had always done his own yard work but, as a professional himself (Steve is an architect), he decided it was time to hire another professional who really knew landscape and had solid expertise with plants. He chose Heinen Landscape because had gotten to know owner Dave Heinen and noticed Heinen Landscape’s vehicles and signs in the neighborhood – and the well landscaped and manicured properties the trucks and signs were associated with. Steve thought Heinen might be a good fit for his own property so he made a call.

Heinen’s landscape pros not only spruced up Steve’s landscaping and flower beds, but were also able to help with longstanding drainage issues on the side of his house. Steve said, “Heinen, took over a hodge-podge of stuff – working with some existing plants and incorporated a number of new plants that they really made work nicely together.”

When asked how his experience was with the Heinen team. Steve commented, “They did a phenomenal job and the level of professionalism they executed the work with seemed exceptional. They were really a skilled team.”

On a final note, Steve noted that, “Heinen exceeded our expectations. If your family is contemplating hiring a landscape professional, my wife and I would highly recommend giving Heinen Landscape a call.”

Heinen customer Barb T. switched from a basic lawn mowing service to Heinen Landscape over fifteen years ago – and now she relies on Dave and the team for all her outdoor needs. “They’ve touched almost every part of our lawn and we get compliments all the time from people just walking by our home!” Barb said recently. Over the years, Heinen has helped Barb with dozens of projects – everything from mowing, fertilizing, and weeding to landscaping, irrigation, and fence installation!

When asked how she decided on Heinen for her lawn care and landscaping needs, Barb said, “They started by just redoing our front flower bed and they did such a good job, it’s just grown from there!”

Barb loves that she can take her outdoor living problems to Heinen and trusts that they’ll come up with a solution that fits her needs. Earlier this year Barb was having some drainage issues on the side of her yard and Heinen came up with a quick solution to keep her yard from flooding. The team also recently installed some bushes by her driveway to hide trash cans from view. “They’re always coming up with great ideas and I am constantly recommending Heinen to my friends,” said Barb.

One of Barb’s favorite things about Heinen is, “They always try to use plants that are natural and indigenous to the area so you’re not struggling with a high-maintenance plant that’s just going to die during the winter. It’s so much easier to care for and makes maintenance better and easier.”

When asked about future plans for her yard, Barb said she had a couple flower beds she wanted to revamp and freshen up a little. She has Heinen out for yard maintenance regularly and she loves that they always make things right. According to Barb, “They’re all so nice and easy to work with. It’s such a wonderful feeling to come home and see how great they did with the yard. There’s definitely a sense of pride in their work.”

“Frankly, We Couldn’t Be Happier with the Results.”

Panoramic View Panoramic View in Winter – Awaiting Spring

Planning the perfect landscaping project takes a lot of forethought, consideration and attention to detail. The crew at Heinen apply that same level of attention to detail when developing a relationship with their customers – customers like Larry D. Larry, a Kansas City resident, recently shared his experience when Heinen transformed his run-of-the-mill, Midwestern backyard into what he jokinglyFront Yard referred to as his own “mini Versailles of the Midwest.”

It was Heinen’s keen listening to truly understand a customer’s vision and the ability to execute and bring the customer’s vision to life that won over Larry, when searching for a landscaping company to tackle his project.  “We talked to three different companies, all of whom were recommended by friends,” explained Larry. “We just didn’t feel a fit, expect with Heinen, because they were the only ones who really felt like they were listening to what we were asking for, instead of just trying to sell us something.”

Larry described how Tim, their Heinen landscape designer, made multiple trips their home during the preliminary planning process with various plans, proposals and draDrawningwings. “Tim would always come out if we had a concern,” recounted Larry, and ultimately in the end, they went ahead with all of Tim’s recommendations.

The primary goal for this project was to minimize the amount of lawn and maximize the landscaping by adding a bit of color to create a pleasant area to sit outside. Larry wasn’t interested in having a patio or deck due to the maintenance involved, so he had Heinen install a crushed granite circle in lieu of grass and put a fire pit and large Adirondack chairs on the crushed granite.

In additionBackyard to the crushed granite, Heinen also built a brand new 3-4 foot retaining wall that spans the entire backyard and helped keep the neighbor’s lawn from collapsing into Larry’s yard. They also updated an existing inground irrigation system that was primarily designed to water the grass. “It didn’t really hit the landscaped area, so they (Heinen) ended up installing several more sprinkler heads and branches from the existing irrigation system. They did all that, and it was painless,” said Larry.

Heinen also completely landscaped the backyard, installing 13 azaleas, 17 green velvet boxwoods that line the front sidewalk all the way to the front door as well as some in the back, a Vanderwolf pine (similar to the tree in the Kauffman Garden), 8 spruce trees that line the new retaining wall, and numerous evergreen trees. “I found a couple of species of Japanese White Pines,” Larry continued, “that he (Tim) couldn’t get. I found one that I liked, and Tim’s crew picked it up and planted it.”backyard 1

With a project of this size, it’s only natural to want to share your experience with others, and when asked if he’d recommend Heinen he exclaimed, “Oh absolutely! In fact, we did recommend them to some friends over in Mission Woods that were talking about having something done. We said, ‘You really need to talk to these people’, and they laughed and said, ‘We already use them’.”

In fact, Larry cSide Yardouldn’t say enough about the level of customer service, the finished product, and the overall experience working with Heinen. “Frankly, we couldn’t be happier with the results,” Larry gushed. He went on to explain how the whole Heinen team went above and beyond to satisfy his expectations. “Dave Heinen was out here a couple times personally checking on the quality of the work. In short, they’re just good people to do business with, and we like supporting a local company.”

“They Transformed Our Property into a Magical Garden.”

tammy garden

We had a chance to sit down with Heinen customer Tammy W. of Prairie Village to discuss her Heinen experience. With Heinen’s help, Tammy was able to transform her backyard from what seemed like a jungle into a garden paradise. Here’s what she had to say.

How did you first find out about Heinen?

Dave Heinen has worked with my father for years. Dave is also a client of my husband, who is a financial planner. My husband has tremendous respect for Dave, and I’ve gotten to know him over the years – I adore him!

How long have you been a Heinen customer?

A few years

t23In your opinion, what makes Heinen stand out from other landscape and irrigation companies in Kansas City?

Everything is done with excellence and a fine tooth comb. They leave nothing undone, and they usually do even more than we asked. They are a first class operation – one of KC’s finest landscape outfits. They transformed our property into a magical garden in the back yard and we are so pleased. It’s my sanctuary – I can go back there and disappear. Before it looked terrible – they came in and overhauled it. It is truly magical.

What has your experience with Dave Heinen been like?

Dave is a family guy, and he makes it a point to ask about our children as well. He is the loveliest human being to deal with and such a dear friend. He’d go to the ends of earth for anyone. He personally has done so much on my property – the personal attention is phenomenal. That’s the difference between a successful company and everybody else. I can’t say enough good things about him.

What has your experience been with the Heinen team?

Every single person that works for Dave is delightful. The rapport and integrity they have for Heinen and what they’re trying to uphold is amazing. They are accommodating and will bend over backward for you! I would trust my house key or garage door code to any of them. Dave has hired a family instead of regular employees. They put in 100% because they care.

What kind of work has Heinen completed for you?

They did all new landscaping in front and back, restructured and put in French drains and built up the foundation so that there is no wood rot. They are full service. If there’s an issue, they let you know before they start on it. They offer solutions when we don’t have the knowledge on a problem.

t5Have you recommended Heinen to anyone?

I’ve told lots of people about Heinen, and will continue to tell them about their excellent work.

Next up for Tammy? Heinen is installing a complete irrigation system to keep her yard and plants continuing to look great – regardless of the whims of Mother Nature!

“Their workers have always been exceptionally pleasant and accommodating.”

We recently had a chance to chat with one of Heinen Landscape’s great customers, Fairway resident, Dick S., and hear about his experiences using Heinen as his landscaping service provider. “We’ve been using them (Heinen) for about a year now,” explained Dick, “and we’ve been very pleased with the work they’ve done.”

Heinen Landscape Liriope 'Big BlueHeinen installed our sprinkler system. That was a big project, but they were quick and efficient in getting it done,” explained Dick. “Heinen has really improved the look of the landscaping by planting new shrubbery. We also have Heinen trim our hedges, and we’ve had several compliments on that,” said Dick.

“Heinen also does all our routine lawn maintenance,” said Dick, mentioning several aspects of the maintenance work Heinen does for his property including trimming, mulching, and fertilizing.

When asked if there are any other big projects planned, he said, “They’re scheduled to do lawn care throughout the summer for whatever’s needed – we just really appreciate the work they do for us.”

Dick said he’s had a pleasant experience working with Heinen, and that he has and will continue to recommend their services to others, including the people who compliment his trimmed hedges. He also had praises for the landscape workers at Heinen, wrapping up our conversation by saying, “Their workers have always been exceptionally pleasant and accommodating.”

Once winter passes and the weather turns a little nicer, Dick invited us to come on over and photograph his landscaping to show the work that Heinen has done once spring has officially sprung. Thanks for sharing your experience with us, Dick, and we’ll see you for photos in the spring!

Knowing his crews will come treat and cut my lawn once a week is really great!”

With so many landscaping companies to choose from, finding a reliable and qualified landscaping service provider can be confusing and difficult if you don’t have any prior experience or referrals. Luckily, for Heinen customer Carrie E. her decision to hire Heinen was a simple and easy choice.

“When I first bought my house, I thought, ‘This is my responsibility now. I should be doing this,’” explained Carrie. She soon realized that she needed help getting her yard to look its best and would need to hire a landscaping company. “I had actually seen Heinen trucks driving around, but there were also a lot of other trucks in the area. I never knew who to call,” she said. With all the different companies to choose from, she wasn’t sure where to start or who would be a good fit.

One day Carrie was talking to one of her friends, Tonya, about needing to find a good landscape company to help with mowing and general lawn maintenance. As it turned out, her friend Tonya was Dave Heinen’s wife. “I had become good friends with her, and she suggested I set up an appointment with Dave. Since she was a good friend, I really trusted her opinion,” said Carrie. She decided to give it a shot. “I figured, what’s the harm? If it worked, it worked. If it didn’t, then at least we tried. Luckily, it has worked out.”

Five years later, Carrie is still a Heinen customer. She explained how she started off with Tim doing fertilizer and lawn treatments. Simple lawn treatments and mowing turned into major projects. “Tim helped redo my backyard in 2013,” explained Carrie. “It was a wild, untamed yard and didn’t even resemble a backyard, but he transformed it into a nice lawn.”

Another large project Heinen completed for Carrie last June was to help with water drainage. “That was a big project, but they were great! It only took about three days to do the grating, digging and to complete,” she exclaimed.

Carrie has been extremely happy with her experiences as a Heinen client. “Knowing his crews will come treat and cut my lawn once a week is really great,” she said, “I’m very happy with what they have done and will continue to use them for leaf clean up and mowing.”

She also had high praises for the company itself, “I love the company, and Dave as a person. He’s a very ethical business person, and his crews are nice and great to work with. Dave really cares about his crews and from what I’ve seen, there’s been a very low turnover in workers. So right there shows how great of a company Dave has to work for.”

“I have been getting lots of compliments on my yard since Heinen has started!”

After having difficulties and bad experiences with previous landscape companies, Mrs. Williams finally decided to switch to Heinen and she has now been with them for almost a year. She had chosen Heinen after seeing many of their trucks in the area and because “all of the yards that Heinen does always look so pretty!” Mrs. Williams also knew that Heinen does great work for the Mission Hills Park Board.

In the past year, Heinen has started doing a variety of work for her, such as mowing, pruning, lawn applications, and clean ups, and most recently, planted some annuals. Mrs. Williams says that “I have been getting lots of compliments on my yard since Heinen has started!”

When asked about Heinen’s landscaping professionals, Mrs. Williams said “they are always very careful and thorough. They also do a great job cleaning up after themselves. Debbie is awesome and if there is ever an issue I call her and there is always a wonderful response time.”

Landscaping Companies KCConversation with Heinen Customer Bill P. – Mission Hills Modern Homeowner

We recently had a chance to talk with one of Heinen Landscape’s great customers, Mission Hills resident, Bill P. about his experience with Heinen Landscape.

“When we first built this house a couple of years ago, we knew we needed to find a professional landscaping company and one of our neighbors recommended Heinen,” said Bill. He also knew that Heinen handles the lawn care, maintenance and landscaping for the city of Mission Hills and loved what he saw.

“I’ve had a number of landscaping companies in previous homes, and Heinen has far exceeded any other company I’ve ever worked with,” said Bill.

Heinen has done more than just landscaping for Bill, the turf pros at Heinen also take care of the maintenance. That includes pulling weeds, laying fertilizer and pesticides, and Heinen even installed an irrigation system to keep Bill’s lawn at its greenest and adjacent shrubs, plants, and trees hydrated during the dog days of Kansas City’s often dry summers.

“I typically work with Tim or Blake, and my experience with them has been excellent,” said Bill. “What I KC Irrigation really like about them is I don’t have to call them to ask them to do things, they notice problem areas in my yard and solve them without me having to be involved.”

Bill and his family travel quite a bit, and Heinen Landscape and Irrigation provide care for Bill’s property even when he’s out of town. “I would recommend Heinen to anyone,” said Bill, “they’ve done a fantastic job for me!”

If at First You Don’t Succeed – Call Heinen!

Last year, Heinen Landscape customer, Judy Lee, had been doing her landscape and yard work herself. Like a lot of people, Judy realized that keeping up with her home’s landscape and yard work became more than she wanted to handle – and free time for most people these days is at a premium.

Judy decided to hire a landscaping company. According to Judy, “The first landscape company was inconsistent, untimely and unprofessional.” Fed up from all the miscommunication and still having a yard of unfinished landscaping, Judy spoke to a neighbor about her situation. The neighbor told her about a couple around the corner that was always satisfied with their yard and landscaping company. That company just so happened to be Heinen and Judy decided to give Heinen a call.

After the call to Heinen, Judy said someone came out to see her right away. “They came out within a day or two, reviewed my yard with me, and I told them what I wanted to have done”, Judy recalls. “We sat down and went over options and estimates together and did some comparing.”

After collaborating on ideas and planning together, Judy decided to go ahead and give Heinen a try. She admits she was a little hesitant, “I had lost confidence in landscape companies after my previous experience.”

Fortunately for Judy, this situation was different. “When Heinen came out they did an excellent job,” Judy said. She adds that they completed the project in a much faster timeframe than other companies had estimated for similar work. “The Heinen guys were pleasant, professional and on always on time. They took the time to explain to me how and when my yard would progress and evolve.”

Judy said Heinen met and exceeded the goals she had for her yard – and did it in a timely fashion. She also said her confidence in professional landscaping quickly returned after working with Heinen. “Everything Heinen has done for me has been absolutely perfect and beautiful,” Judy said. Judy also now uses other Heinen services such as mowing and other basic treatments for her yard on an ongoing basis.

And, just recently, Judy had been looking for red mulch to add a finishing touch to her newly landscaped yard. “I was very pleased with the red mulch Heinen found for me – they searched everywhere for the perfect mulch and found just what I wanted.”

Thanks to Judy’s positive experiences with Heinen, she has recommended Heinen to her friends, family – and even clients from her day-care business. “Heinen did a great job for me,” said Judy, “and I’m glad to pass along my positive experience with them to others!”

“Heinen is a one stop shop!”

Best Landscape Company KCWe recently had a chance to speak with one of our long-time customers, David V., about his experience with Heinen Landscape at his Mission Hills home.

“I first noticed the Heinen trucks while driving through my neighborhood. I saw that they do the landscaping for the city of Mission Hills and I really liked how it looked,” David said. “I decided to give Heinen a call and I’ve been a very happy customer ever since!”

David has now been a Heinen customer for 10 years, and Heinen has done it all for him! “My relationship with Heinen first started out as mowing. Over the years the relationship has definitely grown,” said David. Heinen Landscape has installed an irrigation system, maintains his landscaping, handles snow removal in the winter, cleans the gutters and any other odds and ends that come up. “Heinen is a one stop shop!,” said David.

What David really loves is the convenience that comes with Heinen Landscape. “I communicate directly with Blake – he comes out at a moment’s notice,” said David. “He’s very hands-on and he makes sure that each project comes out exactly the way I want it.”
