We were so delighted with the backyard work, we went ahead and had them do the front. They helped us find a superb Japanese Maple as a centerpiece. The work has generated very favorable comments from the neighboors.
After waiting since November to have a contractor come out to clean my gutter. I gave up and tried to locate another contractor. After several replies on Thumbtack, I decided on Reinaldo Torres of Del Ray Landscaping. First thing, he was in the Alexandria area. Many contractors are too far and feel it is not worth their while to travel for a small job. Second thing, its a landscaping business that does gutter cleaning. Great!! My neighbor has tree with limbs overhanging on my roof that traditional gutter cleaners will not touch. Third thing, his quote was inline with the others as far as the gutter cleaning. I did not mention the tree at the time, but the quote for cleaning my gutter was very reasonable. I contacted Reinaldo on Saturday, New Years Eve. He came out the same day in which I explained I wanted my roof swept and gutter cleaned. At that time, I asked if he would be willing to prune the branches overhanging my roof. He stated that would not be a problem for an additional/reasonable fee. We scheduled an appointment for two days later, Monday. It was raining on Monday. Reinaldo, called that morning and explained it was not a good day due to the weather. I understood and we scheduled for the next Saturday. I then looked at the weather for that weekend, and there was a possibility of snow and cold later that week. I called Reinaldo back and asked if he could come out Wednesday, January 4th, after 3:00 PM when I was off work. No problem. Reinaldo and a friend came out Wednesday around 3:30PM. They apologized for being late for they had mechanical issues on the work truck. Most contractors would have canceled. Not Reinaldo, he put a ladder on his family mini-van and came out. Taking about dedication and only 30 min late!!! Reinaldo and his friend, Nelson, did a great job with the tree pruning, roof sweeping, and cleaning out my gutter. They cleaned up after and everything looked great. I am very happy with the service and definitely will be using Del Ray Landscaping again!!! John McCauley Alexandria, VA
Ed was very responsive and professional in his approach. Reliable and great service. I have a small landscaped garden which I need someone to take care of as I travel a lot and always want it to look perfect. Very happy with the results so far. Thanks Ed!
We highly recommend David for any landscaping needs! He is very professional, great to work with, made sure we were happy with the landscaping design, and went above and beyond, doing much more than we expected! Don't hesitate to hire David and his team- you'll be happy you did!
Makimanta was the right choice. Professional, high quality great consultation and follow up. I am very satisfied with their work. My garden is beautiful.
Michael provided great ideas and insight into our townhome's backyard re-design. He created a terrific garden box and flower bed and installed additional plants and new sod. He also put in drainage. I would hire Michael again.
Jamie & Dan were easy to get in touch with. Jamie offered many great ideas for the design of my front flower beds and I went with one idea of shaping the beds and love it! Also gave me many options/quotes for the big project itself. In the end, I had them rip up all the old shrubs and trees then til, shape, and edge it. Two day job. I then got all the products (garden soil, mulch, plants etc.) and finished it myself (I preferred it this way). They even offered to help plant when I got everything! There was a tiny bit of miscommunication & a day of no-show but doesn't cloud the fact that I'm sooooooo happy that I have my "curb appeal" gardens :) Thanks Jamie & Dan!
Mitch Lachin (M & L Landscaping) has been our landscaper for at least the past 15 years. He maintains our yard, has designed our current landscaping scheme, and prepares our yard for spring and winter. Over the years, we have been very pleased with Mitch and his team's work. His first job for us was to remove ground cover and seed a large area with grass a in an area where we had trees taken down. The grass did wonderfully, looks rich and survives to this day. He has successfully helped us over the years in landscape design and planting, helping us select plants that would be deer resistant (as much as plants can be deer resistant!) and low maintenance as well as pretty and colorful. It is always so exciting to return home that day in the spring when Mitch and his team has come to our house, cleaned up our yard and gotten us ready for spring! Everything always looks wonderful. We have asked Mitch to maintain our yard. He contacts us approximately once per month to let us know if anything needs to be done, and if so, what. Sometimes no work needs to be done, and sometimes quite a bit of work needs to be done! The end result is always a yard that meets our expectations. Mitch communicates very well with us, by phone, in person or via email. He always let's us know when he is coming and what he will do. If we have any issues or concerns, he promptly responds and addresses them. His team of workers is wonderful as well. They communicate to us what they are doing and are always neat and polite. We highly recommend Mitch and M&L Landscaping! They have served us well for many years!!!! Barb Ship
Alonso was great. Came same day to give me a quote which was very reasonable and scheduled for a few days later. Showed up on time and got to work straight away. Removed deep bamboo roots and then laid top soil and mulch. Had to carry everything through my house as no other access to garden and was very careful. Would definitely use him again and highly recommend.
Brad kept lines of communication open, from the bidding to the final delivery. My questions and concerns were answered honestly and quickly. The outdoor work happened in between our snow, so it took slightly, but understandably, longer than expected. However, the garden looks so much tidier and easier to maintain. My neighbor even commented it should be featured in a magazine. :)
I hired Adkins Landscapes for landscape maintenance around my home and lawn maintenance in my backyard. The lawn was in terrible shape and they brought the grass back to a beautiful rich thick green lawn. The team did a thorough spring cleanup and feeding/mulching of all landscaped beds in the back yard and just recently did an excellent job of expanding an older landscape bed in the side yard and planted a lovely new tree in the midst of it. The company is very personable in working with you to meet your needs, very knowledgeable in making recommendations, and has a high standard of quality in their work.
Tom and his crew did a fantastic job! Very knowledgeable about plants and offered design advice unlike other companies I contacted. Professional, quick, and reasonably priced. Very pleased-the yard was transformed!! Already plan to use them for future work and am recommending to others as well.
Great company! Did everything I asked. Didn't to things I didn't ask for. Friendly, competent and pleasant to deal with. They made my barren yard a beautiful garden.
Joe installed our back patio (pavers) in 2012 and recently completed a complete redesign of our front yard. He does a great job and is extremely thorough. With years and years of experience, Joe's work is perfect every time. He is also very knowledgable about water issues. He doesn't skip any details and always goes the extra mile to make sure the results are outstanding. He is quick to address any questions or concerns. I have already schedule Joe to come back in the spring to trim the plants. I won't trust my landscaping to anyone else. I also really enjoyed working with Sheila who does the landscape design. She listed to exactly what I wanted and created stunning landscaping.
I highly recommend Bill LeFave and his team at Audobon Landscaping. He recently provided fabulous design ideas and expert installation that completely transformed my small back yard. Features include a gorgeous paver patio, stone steps, 2 loose-laid stone walls, re-contouring for perfect water control, an irrigation system for the gardens, and lovely lighting. He also did a phenomenal job of cleaning up, pruning, and mulching my entire yard. Bill has great crews, and he supervises and works along with them on all stages of the project. I feel fortunate to have found someone with such knowledge, artistry, and skill to transform my yard. Besides that, he's delightful to work with, can give you terrific guidance about plants, and provides his services at a very fair price. Before we started, I saw his phenomenal work at the yard of a very satisfied customer. Now I am also one.
We had drainage problems in a few areas of the property, the front of the home needed improved garden beds, and we have a blue spruce tree ( of sentimental value) that had root damage and needed to be either taken out or straightened with cables. We also had front stops that needed to be secured, & a peach tree that needed pruning and fertilizing. Joshua and Nathan came to our home, assessed the needs, explained in detail what they felt would help and gave us a very fair cost to do the required work. They came out on Monday ( before we were awake), and quietly started their work on the drainage problems. They installed 3 Hugel beds for that. They then began work on the old flower beds, re-using some of the plants and planting others so to have color year round. The bed is now fairly maintenance-free with perennials. They fixed the steps, babied the peach tree in the back yard, straightened the blue spruce with cables, trimmed some low branches on the property (above & beyond the contract) and did all this within 2 days as promised. I was most impressed with their commitment to the environment, their knowledge in the field, their honesty & integrity. The work was done in a professional manner, no mess left in the yard, and they left us with instructions for maintaining the work. They were a pleasure to work with and we plan to have them return for other projects. They called 2 days later after a storm to check on the effectiveness of the Hugel beds & to make sure we were satisfied with their work.
Evans Homes & Gardens replaced our old, boring, front walkway with a beautiful curved brick-lined flagstone walkway. They added brick and flagstone to the stoop so it would match the walkway. And finally, they landscaped the entire front of the house. It looks beautiful!
Ashley Kidner of ILD is a highly skilled craftsman and designer and his work is absolutely beautiful. He will make your outdoor space better than you thought possible. He transformed our yard into a stunning and functional space with a rock garden, bluestone patio, and dry stack stone wall. We love it and we always receive compliments from our visitors.
