This company has provided great service for our HOA. I called Jay Johnson at Charleston Grounds with a couple of questions. I want to acknowledge his quick response, willingness to help, and great professionalism. He accommodated my schedule, came over and promptly addressed my concerns. Very impressed with Jay, as well as Charleston Grounds.

Our HOA board hired Lee and his team about a year ago to “bring back” our neighborhood’s grass etc that had been neglected for years! Jay Johnson is our property manager and is ALWAYS responsive, knowledgeable, professional with any and requests, whether it irrigation concerns, new plantings, weed/insect control and our #1 priority the turf. He manages his on site manager, Will & his crew, to take care of any needs weekly. I couldn’t be happier with all efforts from all, especially Jay who always has a smile and a good word! Thank you Charleston Grounds for all efforts of excellence!

I just wanted to express my thanks and compliments to you and your team. The turnaround on our campus is visible and much appreciated. Your team has been doing exactly what we wanted- treating the grounds and the landscaping as if it was their own, making suggestions, proactively addressing issues- and not just showing up and mowing the grass!

Lee Hickman and Charleston Grounds Management have been servicing two hotels in Charleston. The difference Mr. Hickman has made in the overall appearance of our landscaping has been dramatic. Unlike other landscape firms we have used, Mr. Hickman is on site during the weekly service period, personally insuring that every area receives the proper attention. I have found him to be conscientious, professional and possessing an excellent eye for detail.
