Ruben is wonderful, such a great man! He's so nice, friendly, and very reliable. The quote he gives you is the price you pay, he comes at the time he said he would, and finishes when he says he will! Actually, he finished our house a day early! Such a great job, he actually saved us money because we were staying in a hotel while we got the inside AND outside painted. When he finished early we were able to come home early and that was really wonderful as my kids were getting very restless.. Overall Ruben is a great guy AND a great worker. My first and ONLY choice next time we need work done.
My husband would always buy me flowers about once a month, and he was always so sneaky about where he bought them from - One day I finally figured out where he got them from and decided to surprise HIM with some flowers! I was very impressed with the shop and with the variety and the freshness of the flowers. But now I see why he didn't want me to know where he got them - I guess he didn't want me to feel bad about them being so expensive!
When my neice got married, my husband and I were the padrinos (godparents who help pay for the wedding) for the flowers. The first place I looked, in Pasadena, was rude, expensive, and had ugly flowers. The second place I came to was My Secret Garden. The difference was amazing and here they were so nice to me. They asked me what kind of flowers I wanted and then gave me some reccomendations as to what other colors and flowers would look good with the ones I wanted. I decided to use My Secret Garden, and came back the next week to make my purchases. Not only did the remember ME, but they also remembered what I had WANTED and that really impressed me. They had the flowers ready right on time for the wedding and they looked so amazing. My neice had been a little wary about giving up control over the decorations and flowers, but she was VERY happy with how it came out.
First Steps is amazing. I know about childcare and things like child-teacher ratio, and availablity of the caregiver, and First Steps meets those requirements of a childcare facility. The most important key to childcare is the staff. The staff needs to be well-trained, safe and healthy, and attentive to each child. Most importantly, each staff member should work with only a few children at a time, so that each child has the same caregiver ALL day, EVERY day, EVERY week. This is important for both the child and the parent so that the child can make an emotional connection, and so that the parent can get to know and trust the caregiver. First Steps meets and exceeds these reqiurements and that is why they gained my business. My son has since left for elementary school but he will always remember his teachers from First Steps .
I took my son here a few months ago because a couple of friends had reccomended it. They do have good payment plans for people without insurance and that is the main reason I decided to give it a try.. But I won't be coming back here again. It's not VERY dirty but it is a little dirty and I worry how sanitary it was, especially the instruments they put in my sons mouth and the dentists hands. Next time I will pay the extra money and take my son someplace better.
When we were landscaping our new home, we hired Neighborhood Landscape Company to help us with the work. We had bought ALOT of trees, bushes, and flowers and needed some major help on how to plant it, where to plant it, and what would look good.. They were able to help us plant it, AND tell us what would look good, as well as which plants needed sun, which plants needed shade, etc. Very knowledgable. My husband and I were extremely impressed with the work and effort they put in.
This garden center is HUGE. They have ANYTHING you could possibly want to plant .. every kind of tree, bush, shrub and flower to satisfy even the pickiest person .. We landscaped our home recently after we moved in and we needed alot of trees and flowers to liven the place up. Mel O Dee did the trick and even delivered it for us (we ordered ALOT). Our new home looks a thousand times better now. Much nicer plants then you will find going to Home Depot or Lowes.
