Couldn’t have been more pleased. Bill came out to assess the job and provided a timely estimate and comprehensive plan. He thoroughly explained everything and made sure to disclose the time frame for project commencement. Once the excavation began, the workers arrived on time and put forth extreme effort and care. From the beginning, it was quite evident that the job was even more involved than or...

`1. AVOID this place as they are complacent, inflexible, arrogant, stuck in the past trying to operate in modern times. Short staffed. 2. I had suggested they change their process as no one in this era of email and IPAD technology should wait up to 2 weeks to receive a price quote. The owner went on to complain that their estimator is overworked + doesn't have time to crank out price quotes. When ...

Description of Work
1. NO WORK DONE b/c : Price quote took too long ( Up to 2 weeks ), Overworked estimator( Short staffed) and, The owner refused to quote after I suggested they get they improve their process.

Here's what you can expect from Birch Hill. This is a small family operation, so if ANYONE takes the day off, they have to cancel on you, at the last minute, which happens FREQUENTLY. The daughter, who answers the phone, has a poor attitude, so that's not fun. I would suggest that you provide actual pictures and names of trees and plants that you want, because using descriptive words will not get ...

Description of Work
Over $11,000 of outside plantings

We were very pleased with the results of our new landscaping. It looks lovely and the staff was professional, respectful and thorough.

Description of Work
We recently moved to a condominium where the grounds had been neglected for years. Birch Hill planned and installed our new landscape. They listened to our request for low maintenance plants and were open to our suggestions. They installed cobblestone along a walkway and along the driveway and it turned out beautifully. They also installed an automatic drip watering system for our pots and planters. Initially their solution to watering the pots was not successful but they resolved the problem and created another type of system which works very well.
