Words cannot describe how pleased I am with my patio and fresh landscape!!!!! Julie and Andy did an AMAZING job transferring my dull backyard into a patio paradise!!! Thank you all so very much! You all worked so hard and were extremely easy to work with! I will recommend you to everyone! God Bless!
Jeremiah trimmed limbs from the tree on my backyard. He did a great job and price was very reasonable. I was impressed because he did everything he promised to do and beyond. He was on time and was always promptly responding to my messages. THANK YOU JEREMIAH!!!
R&D renovated my ~250 sq ft deck and added a roof. They did quality work for a reasonable price. Sam was flexible, easy to work with, and helped me work up a design that turned out to be perfect for our desired layout.
On time. Responsive to questions. Cleans up walks and driveway after mowing.
We just built a new house in Mt Lookout and wanted to add some much needed landscaping around our pool and backyard. These guys did a great job. They were incredibly affordable and had terrific work ethic. I couldn't recommend them more highly and I will be using them again next Spring.
They did a fantastic job designing and landscaping my back patio. Hassle free. On time and very professional. Highly recommended.
Dalton, was very professional, timely and affortable. He did an excellent job weeding and cleaning out my entire backyard. I will definitely be hiring him for future work.
I contracted with Mark Koeninger and his company in the fall of 2015 to build a covered outdoor living area and the rear of my existing home. The project was completed in the spring of 2016 after I asked them to pause the construction during the holidays and cold temperatures. Mark and his company KPS Architecture and Landscape worked with me with the beginning drawings and plans and provided some very good advice that would make my outdoor living area very unique and have a professional finish. With any large project there were decisions and changes made by me the homeowner but working with KPS on these changes was a good experience. The crew working daily on my project were very professional and were very respectful of my property and maintaining a clean appearance throughout the completion of the project. They were very open to suggestions and were very thorough when explaining the timing and tasks still needing completion to keep the project on track. I will end by saying my outdoor living area and I only met but exceeded my expectations that I envisioned when breaking ground. My neighbors and family have also praise the design and craftsmanship. I have and would again recommend KPS Architecture & Landscape to friends and family. Thank You!!
We had a pool we needed filled in and had called several companies for a price. We were receiving quotes in the $8,000 range because it was a large pool and there was no truck access to the back yard. So, that meant lots of fill to be delivered and lots of time to truck the fill to the back yard. Jared was the only one who mentioned that there was enough fill that could be used from the hill in the backyard to fill the pool. That saved us 1/2 the cost of bringing the fill in. We were so glad we had him come out. He saved us lot's of money, did an excellent job and was always on time and did what he said he was going to do. Kind of rare these days. I would absolutely hire him again!
I had sod placed. Beautiful job. You hear many stories about contractors etc, not showing up at a schedule time not with this company. Alex was on time for the estimate and when there was a delay in laying the sod due to rain I was notified. Would definitely recommend Lawns by Design.
I was looking for someone to create a backyard space for my three dogs (sometimes more when we foster). Mike listened with a sincere intent on understanding what we were looking for. He came out and presented his ideas and it was a no-brainer to hire him. He is very creative and came up with some excellent ideas. The area is everything we thought it would be and more. Mike was very communicative throughout and got the job done in a timely fashion. The space looks amazing (now, if I can just keep my dogs from tearing out the new trees and bushes that would be great!! :)) I will definitely hire Mike in the future for future projects.
I hired Smith Landscaping and Contracting to cut down a large spruce tree and take out an overgrown brush pile in the backyard, and trim a pine tree off the house in the front yard. I am very happy with the job Tom and his team did. They were friendly, professional, and efficient. I'm looking forward to hiring Smith Landscaping again, we already have more quotes on other projects in the works! Highly recommend!
Travis laid stone in a front area of our home. He picked the stone, was there when he said he would be, completed on time, worked neatly, and the finished project is fantastic. We have a backyard that is on the list next year and Travis is using his design talent to come up with our oasis plans. excited to see his plans! Thanks thumbtack!
Very professional, responds promptly to contact & flexible scheduling. Completed a landscape job on short notice. Pricing was reasonable. He provided two different estimates for variety & choices. We really enjoy the openness & curb appeal of the new design. Thank you!!!
Groundhog in a tree, don't you just love that name! When deciding on a contractor for my project. I thought to myself "such a unique name for their company must mean this guy really love landscaping" and boy was I right! I will try to post pics of my backyard transformation's before and after pics to this company's profile. As expected with most new businesses there were hiccups in schedule, timing and cost estimates but these were quickly overcome by passion, mastery & quality of work. Romain (owner) is dependable, trustworthy, accountable and he truly loves what he does for a living and it shows. It's not just his job it's just craft! Groundhog is more than just a landscaping start up company, it offers unique and niche expertise in sustainable horticulture. Something I knew nothing about when I started my project but was amazed at the concept and eager to incorporate more of the concept into my landscape. Romain's passion is evident in the time he takes to bring to life his vision all the while taking me along on the journey. Infectious, inspiring, tenacious intrigued me so much I started researching more than just vegetable gardens. I look forward to his workshops education/training workshops to learn more, do more, be more. I can't wait to work with him again and highly recommend him to others. Open your mind, relax your schedule and allow Romain to deliver something beyond your greatest expectations.
We recently had Philip Evangelisti, of Sunny Ridge, complete a paver patio for our new home. I originally reached out through Thumbtack for someone to build a patio. Philip was the first of several contractors to respond to my request. My husband and I set up a time to meet with Philip to discuss our requirements. He arrived in a timely manner, and presented himself in a very professional manner. I already had a basic design in mind, so Philip worked off of that plan to finalize a drawing for us. He made numerous suggestions as to the best way to approach our project, as well as helping to guide us regarding what type of materials would best serve our purpose. After a couple of meetings with Philip and obtaining a quote for the work, we felt confident that he could take on the project and do a great job. Let me mention that we often like to hire entrepreneurs in order to help them get started in their business and allow them to hone in on their skills. With that desire in mind, we hired Philip to build our patio. Although he is a little young, he has quite a bit of experience and knowledge in numerous areas. Our faith in his skills indeed paid off. Philip worked with us throughout the entire project to make sure that we were informed about what, why, and how he was doing things. Since we were building a portion of our patio over the top of a concrete slab, it was necessary for him to make modifications in order to have one continuous flat patio upon completion. My husband and I shopped for the necessary supplies, and even had a couple of calls with him to make sure that what we were getting would work. (These calls were on a weekend, and while he was out of town, but he was more than happy to talk with us.) We set up delivery of our supplies, and Philip promptly got started on our project. He often hired his brother to help him with the job. The two of them worked hard, in the hot summer heat, and completed the patio in a timely manner. Philip knew what he was doing, he knew how to do it, and took great care each step of the way. I made a modification to the way we were going to have our steps, and Philip just took it in stride and worked with us to make it work. He even went with us to purchase the supplies and helped us figure out what we needed. We are EXTREMELY pleased with our patio, and have received numerous compliments about how beautiful it turned out. Unfortunately I did not take pictures of the completed project before we put everything on the patio, but I believe you will see just how awesome it looks from these pictures. In conclusion, I would not hesitate to hire Philip again if we would have any other project. I also would certainly recommend him to anyone that is looking to hire a contractor. His prices are more than fair, he often went above and beyond what was required, and he is willing to work hard to get the job done in a professional and timely manner. Debbie Scott
I feel I have a more artistic sense than many landscape designers. I also have many years of experience and know how best to economically improve any landscape. I also oversee all my jobs. There is no disconnect from designer to installer.
Pavers, trees, landscaping, weekly maintenance and gardening: I could ask for no more than WHISPERING CREEK has provided over the years. David Baumgartner is experienced in horticulture. He is talented in yard and pond design. His crew are experienced and helpful. I recommend Whispering Creek without reservation.
Lacey did an amazing job on designing my living area. She was easy going and full of new ideas. I absoultley will be hiring her again for another job in my home. Thank you
Justin was a great contractor to work with. We tried getting work done before, but he was the quickest, and had the best value. He was very respectful when it came to not damaging my other landscape, and went about and beyond to make our yard exactly how we wanted it. He finished it quickly and professionally! I love spending nights relaxing in my backyard ecsape now!

Our approach is distinguished by an approach that works with nature. This contrasts a design approach commonly used in which the primary goal is to express control and order. Often it is nothing but outdoor decorating. Common landscapes in this area are mulch based systems. Plants are isolated from each other in geometric patterns in beds against the house. We use a plant based system. Beds are planted with flowering perennials that spread to reduce mulching and weeding. The result is we can deliver reduced maintenance to our clients with an outdoor space that meets their living needs and contributes to an exciting ecologically responsible and thriving place to relax and enjoy life. We feel better in these kinds of places, and it is our hope we can provide this to our clients. Not to mention give them some extra time to enjoy it by making it easier to take care of! Another solution to weeds? We use plants in many areas that are taller than the weeds. We can reduce mowing, trimming, and blowing by replacing some square feet of lawn with small wooded areas, mini-meadows, or edible plantings both perennial or annual vegetable.
