I highly recommend In and Out Design.  I didn't realize how bad my yard was when I moved last year into a 50 year old house.  Mary erased all those years of neglect and gave me a front yard that gets compliments from everyone walking by, a beautiful backyard for me and my dog to enjoy and a path to reach the front door which my neighbors say hasn't existed in over 20 years. There was a lot to do t...

Mary DiCarlo came to our rescue when we hosted our daughter’s wedding in our backyard. We had three weeks to plan the wedding and I am forever grateful Mary answered my email requesting help. After our first phone call, I knew Mary understood our hopes for the yard and our short timeline. She excitedly took on the challenge of designing a backyard wedding venue and quickly developed a plan to enha...

Excellent. The stone we had used previously was no longer available but Mary did a great job of hunting and researching until she found one that worked perfectly. The installation was quick and looks wonderful. We had a few of the stones start to slide for some reason but her team was out there the very next day and fixed it immediately. We have had no issues since. We would highly recommend In an...

I recently had a full property landscaping projected completed by In & Out Design, Mary, along with Rob and his crew did a wonderful job. Prior to our meeting, I received a form to complete so that Mary would have an idea of my preferences for the landscaping. Mary designed a small river bed to handle a drainage issue. Along with the landscaping plan, she provided a plant list and photos of the pl...

Thank you so much for the wonderful review! It was truly our pleasure working with you to make sure all of your needs and wants were accomplished with the design and plant selection. While the dry creek beds addressed your concerns for drainage from neighboring properties, it does add a nice element of texture and interest to the landscape as well. We wish you many years enjoying the landscape as ...

We've worked with Mary on several projects now and as always, her ideas and designs are exceptional. From the plants and trees she picked out to the placement. Everything looks amazing! Her crew did a fantastic job on installation and cleaned up as if nothing happened. Perfect!

Mary and her team are like a dream - particularly in a world of landscape contractors who rarely return a first call of inquiry. Mary and Rob (lead installer)) not only created unique solutions to a few what felt like insurmountable problems, but made adjustments along the way as needed in a timely manner. Adjustments to the initial quote were done in a timely manner, as well as any delays and ans...

The end result is beautiful and the care and additional touches, concern, and follow up by Mary have been far beyond expectation. She has been extremely professional and just wonderful to work with. She really cares about doing a good job and helping the client get the results they need and want. Once the project is done, she continues to follow up and make sure things are going well. We would abs...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
We needed an update and cleanup of our landscaped planting areas to make it lower maintenance going forward. This included removing areas that were overrun with weeds, overgrown existing plants/shrubs with new ones, replacement plants and shrubs, removing a row of hedges and installing sod. This included an overall landscape design plan and adding lighting.
