“I have worked with Ground Effects for 20 years. I believe I was one of Sean's first clients. We hired Sean shortly after purchasing our home in Hingham. The property was four acres (unusual for Hingham), largely undeveloped, but showed great potential. Sean and Peter presented a wonderful plan for developing the property, including both landscape and hardscape. Over several years we expanded the lawn, added innumerable flowering trees and plants, large mulch areas, stone walls, waterfall and koi pond, etc.
After such a large investment the care and maintenance of the property was paramount and we looked to Ground Effects to be in essence our "property managers.” Every spring, Sean and Peter would meet to assess the winter damage and discuss what needed to be done. Damaged tree removal, lawn fertilizations, seasonal flowers, and replacement of damaged shrubs. Sean and Peter would oversee all work, whether they did it themselves or contracted it out (tree service, outside lighting, etc). We had total confidence that Sean and Peter would take care of us and take care of our property.
While Sean and Peter were always involved, their work crews were always knowledgeable, courteous and hard working. They always worked as if the property was their property, not some unknown client's. Property management did not end when winter arrived. Snow removal was not always trivial. My property was somewhat difficult to plow and more than once, the plow crews would arrive with mini bobcats. Sean and Peter were wonderful to work with. Always reliable and performed wonderful and creative work with great integrity.
I recently sold my house and moved to Cape Cod. Selling in a competitive market with many other fine and newer homes for sale, I knew my property was going to be the difference maker. Every broker and every potential buyer was awed by the property. I received two offers within three days, at market and at premium. There is no doubt my property sold my home. I would strongly recommend Sean, Peter and the whole Ground Effects crew.”
