Gardening is a great joy to me, but I've been so busy with work my beloved backyard grew completely out of control. Joel and his team saved the day -- they weeded by hand, shaped overgrown bushes and trimmed trees, hauled all the garden waste away and left my place beautiful. Will definitely call him again!
All around Hall's Landscaping did great work. They cleaned up an overgrown front garden, pulling shrubs our and prepping soil for new planting. They helped select excellent, minimal care plants. The new garden looks excellent. They even removed a rotting dogwood tree in the same day, efficiently and with no visible traces of tree left. We would highly recommend Hall's Landscaping. KMH
Job: Replace diseased pachysandra in small garden Mylan of Plant Design Therapy, responded a few minutes after I posted the job on thumtack. Throughout the job,I appreciated that she was very responsive to texts and phone calls, and willing to work with us on the overall budget. Mylan suggested a "cottage garden" to replace the portion of pachysandra that was diseased. This is something we had never considered, and as the design took place we were very pleased. We wanted something that would be easily maintained and would thrive in the sunny and shady areas of the garden. We worked interactively with Mylan on the web to choose color schemes and other aspects we might not have considered. Her crew seemed very capable and did a great job with planting. The biggest job turned out to be removing roots of dead pachysandra, which had been growing in that area for over 30 years. This took many many more hours than expected, so an extra day was required, and we were glad they were able to schedule more time on the fly. They also edged and mulched all beds in our yard, which gives an overall “upgrade” in appearance we hadn’t expected. We’re very excited about watching our cottage garden grow. I would highly recommend Plant Design Therapy, especially for someone interested in Mylan’s design skills and extensive gardening knowledge.
Elena is an extremely knowledgeable and diligent botanist. She and her assistants turned over extremely overgrown garden into a peaceful haven in the course of a couple of days! In addition to her amazing work, Elena is also eager to teach homeowners how to care for their plants and trees, and even brought us some of her soil from Rhode Island to enhance the livelihood of our rose bushes. Elena also helped me to begin to decorate my front porch with potted plants which included meeting me at a nursery to choose the plant arrangements, pottery vases, and soil, and then she eturned to my home to assemble them. All of her work is done with great care and respect for the plants, and she charges a very reasonable rate (unlike many other landscapers.) Elena was a tremendous help and she has a true love of plants and gardening as well as a strong work ethic and a desire to make her clients happy! Thank you so much, Elena! We will definitely continue to use your services.
Expert gardener and also carpentry. I trust his judgment about trees/plants. It is also great that he does carpentry work so that he can fix fences etc. including painting. Also great communication so it was easy to work with Luis. Will hire him again!
Initially we hired Blessed Forever to do some landscaping and planting. We found that the owner is multi/talented and was able to create a stone front porch, garden walls, move trees, and create beautiful gardens. We are absolutely amazed by his work, and so are our neighbors. They have also hired him for major projects! Have no doubt that he can deliver what he promises.
Complete spring clean-up and repair of my garden and flower bed. Did exactly what was in the estimate. No hidden extra costs. Came when he said he would. My garden never looked better. Any additional issues that I brought up were addressed and taken care of.
Last year I was trying to create a home garden without much knowledge on the subject other than some rough ideas on what I wanted the project to look like. I came to Dana on several occasions with an onslaught of questions and was impressed by her wealth of knowledge and willingness explain everything in great detail. With her input, I was able to make informed purchases and we created a better finished product than I had origionally envisioned. I was equally pleased that we stayed within my budget for the project as well. I would recommend her services to anyone. Thanks again!
Very happy with the work done by Jose and his crew. Needed spring cleanup done on the lawn and mulching of garden beds. Also had the lawn reseeded. He showed up when scheduled and completed the job efficiently for a reasonable price. Will certainly call for future projects!
Fantastic landscaping company. Hunter and Rena are provide quality landscaping services and are very responsive and professional. Upfront and affordable work for the high quality they provide. You can also tell they put a lot of care into their work value their clients. I also like that they provide a wide variety of landscaping services, and would recommend for everything from simpler jobs (lawn mowing) to more complex jobs (winterization and masonry). They get my highest approval rating.
Denise Martin and AJM Earth – an incredibly effective small landscape team – have given me back the garden started 25 years ago and all but lost of late to benign neglect and some overly successful Sea Oats. The combination of horticultural and excavation experience was just what this project needed. My initial inquiry was answered right away and we met to survey the “garden” just a few days later. This fact alone is telling of how very professional, organized, and responsive AJM Earth is. Denise and her husband Joe, as well as third team member Carlos, were great about listening to what I wanted as well as suggesting innovative solutions for what else was needed – and then delivering on schedule and on budget. In late September, the heavy equipment rolled in and all the overgrown beds were “grubbed out”, large stone steps were assembled to my exacting specs, and an amazing Gabion basket wall (one of those innovative suggestions) now permanently shores up an old wood retaining wall. Finally, a back yard screening border was planted with some of my favorite trees and shrubs. All this was accomplished by the team of three who seem to do the work of ten. And do it happily! Whatever your landscaping goal, whether you have no fixed notion or, like me, know what you want but need a ton of help to achieve it, Denise and her team are the ones to call. You will be as impressed and delighted as I am. December 2017
She was fast, worked in cold weather, and did a very thorough job of cleaning up my gardens.
Chris from Sacred Roots Nursery is a knowledgeable Master Gardener and knows a weed from a flower! He works fast and his work quality was the best I have ever seen. He left my perennials alone and weeded out all the weeds. He then told me to mulch as soon as possible because the weed seeds will come back with a vengeance, which I did. Now my back, front, and side yards look better than they have ever looked. I will use him and his expertise again. MC

Solscape provides organic designs in permaculture and organic gardening services for the most environmentally friendly solutions in their outdoor living spaces.
My mission is to help you to be a better gardener by providing coaching; to make gardens more sustainable by using and promoting proven organic methods; and to increase bio-diversity by encouraging the use of native plants and the creation of plant communities that sustain wildlife. I specialize in perennial gardens. You can hire me to maintain and improve the garden you already have. I'm available for weekly visits (length of visits would depend on the size and condition of the property). As much as possible, I use hand tools: shovel, trowel, rake, broom, hand pruners, etc. Very occasionally I use battery-powered cordless tools. I don't mow and I don't blow in keeping with the concept of tender land care: using my hands to tend your garden without noise and pollution from combustion engines. Maintenance services provided are as follows: - Check for possible problems and make recommendations for necessary treatment - Note plants that need dividing, transplanting, or pruning and perform these activities with homeowner approval - Stake plants as necessary to maintain a tidy appearance, and train climbing plants - Deadhead annuals and perennials to encourage extended or continuous bloom - Recommend perennial and/or annual plants to fill gaps in the garden if any, with an emphasis on native plants, and with homeowner approval, and obtain plants and install - Weed and edge Coaching services are provided. As a coach, I will work alongside you in the garden, demonstrating techniques and answering your gardening questions. I can show you how to have a lush, beautiful garden without spending a lot of money on soil amendments, fertilizer and mulch. You may have much of what you need on your property already, in the form of last year's perennials, annuals, and fallen leaves. With our help, you will become a knowledgeable and more confident gardener. I am an alumna of the UConn Master Gardener program (2009). I am also an artist (oil painter) and have formerly practiced as a registered architect. I have been gardening in Connecticut for 25 years.
