I have had the pleasure of knowing Ron Goguen for almost 10 years. I first came to know Ron when he operated CGM Landscape. For the last two years Ron has worked as my Estate Manager here at my home in Dover Massachusetts and at my home in Pomfret, CT. My property in Pomfret consisted of approximately 60 acres, planted with specimen trees and shrubs. There was also a main house & carriage house on the property. Ron was responsible for all care-taking activities, including all landscaping, maintenance and equipment repair. Ron is a master pruner and competent horticulturist. He possesses strong communicative & interpersonal skills. Ron is a most honest person and always attended to his work with the greatest of care and attention to detail. I recommend him highly.

If I can be of any further assistance, please feel free to call on me directly.

It gives me great pleasure to write a reference for Ron Goguen. He worked for my wife and I as a full-time assistant caretaker, groundskeeper and general all-around hand on our property, which included formal grounds and a wood lot of over fifty acres. Ron and his wife and children lived on the property. He worked for us from February 1988 until March of 1998 and left us to start his own landscape design, installation and maintenance company. Ron is a very hard worker, honest, reliable and tidy. He is a man of integrity. He comes with my highest recommendation.

“If you are seeking someone to look after your property who is honest, trustworthy, reliable, and knowledgeable, we think Guardian Estate is the answer. We have known Ron Goguen and his family since we first started using him to help manage our modest horse farm in 1996. Whether it is daily maintenance, making repairs, or caring for the place while we are away, it gives us great comfort to know that Guardian is there to respond to any situation. The daily communication we receive from Guardian is invaluable and something other vendors just do not do well.”
