If you've worked with Desire Lawns Maintenance before, we'd love to hear from you! We are always looking for new ways to improve our service and your feedback is appreciated.

I saw Desire Lawns's truck and trailer every morning on my way to work, and knew they were local and was also impressed by their outward appearance, so I called them. I am always pleased to do business with local companies and it was great to also find out they are family too. They cleaned up our very overgrown (but landscaped) yard in one day! We were amazed and we have seen how hard they work. We now depend on them to keep our yard and property tidy all year round. Knowing Bret and his crew are taking care of us has been fabulous.

Gail, Gresham

We've been happily working with Hillside for about 7 years with no complaints. They are knowledgeable, thorough, and provide outstanding customer service. Initially, we relied on them for simple tasks like tree pruning, hedge trimming, and mowing. Two years ago, however, we decided to replace our entire front lawn with landscaping. Now, Hillside plays a critical role in keeping our large front garden healthy and beautiful all year long. They are attentive to a large variety of plants and trees and we've been very pleased with the results. Thanks so much Hillside!

Jenny, NE Portland

We have been clients of Desire Lawns for almost 5 years now, and we couldn't be happier with our service. The owners are kind and helpful, and their employees are punctual, and courteous and are great at answering questions and most important, when they finish mowing and or landscaping our yard, it looks like a state park! We definitely recommend this company for all your landscaping challenges.

Mrs. Chick

We highly recommend Hillside Landscaping. Bret and his crew are incredible! Their work showcases in-depth knowledge of plants and trees, best practices and efficiency. They are polite, hard-working and eager to help in anyway to make our college gardens and grounds shine. We are proud to support a local, family owned business that truly cares for their customers and their properties.

We really appreciate HLM taking such good care of our property. Bret & yard crew are pretty great ~ and Amy, in the office, is equally wonderful. It's all good as far as we're concerned, thanks for that!

The Desire Lawns crew continues to maintain the beauty of my large yard with professionalism and thoroughness. Also when additional jobs are requested, they complete them in a timely manner and the results are beautiful. This company really cares about the quality of their work and I am pleased to be their customer since 2007.

V. Wahlman

The team at Hillside is amazing! They are prompt, courteous, and efficient. They listen to our questions, respond to our landscaping needs creatively, and offer great advice. From scheduling to consultation to service to follow-up, the whole process is easy and enormously satisfying ... and our yard has never looked better!

Robert, SW PDX

Hillside have done a great job every year and are worthy of my trust. The work gets done when I'm not home and I am very pleased with the results. I don't have to tell the crew how to trim every shrub, they just read the landscape and make wise decisions. They know what looks good and make it happen.

Eric, SW PDX

I've lived in my home for 15 years and have had a number of landscape maintenance people over that time Hillside is by far the best. From start to finish, everything is extremely professional. The work was thorough and very reasonably priced. Everyone who has been over since has commented on how great my yard looks. I feel like I am in good hands with Hillside. Thank you!

George, SE PDX

I was extremely IMPRESSED with the work Desire Lawns performed on our whole backyard renovation. It was a big project but the guys worked extremely hard, it was organized, they had a plan and they took extra time at the end of the project to make sure things were cleaned up and looked good. My neighbor even commented on how professional the crew was. Five start recommendation!


It is hard to imagine using any other gardening service once you've used Desire Lawns Maintenance. From my initial approach requesting an estimate for laurel tree trimming thru the end of the job, everyone in the company was prompt, efficient, friendly, and experienced. Customer Service was par excellence. The owner reviewed the work onsite in order to provide me with a reliable cost estimate up front. The work crew arrived on time, had the necessary equipment and enough workers to manage the scope of the task. All the workers were friendly and worked hard. They were efficient and did an exceptional job. When the job was completed, they did a thorough clean up of the entire area. I was very pleased with the outcome and will plan to have them come back for other landscape-related work. The company gets high grades for competence, experience, and exceptional customer relations. It is a family-owned business and they clearly take pride in providing quality service to their customers.
