Brian and his team are fantastic! I could not believe my eyes when I looked out at my yard after sunrise this morning. He transformed our overgrown and unruly lawn into a park! My wife and I are looking forward to sitting out on our deck and simply enjoying the incredible makeover of our yard. Brian put in a high quality dark mulch to fill sculpted garden spaces, added plants and flowers that are ...

Brian and his crew were absolutely incredible. We just moved into a home in Takoma Park, MD and our front and back yard were in need of some major work. The backyard was a complete jungle. It was extremely overgrown with weeds, brush, poison ivy, and dead/unattractive trees. Brian's crew manually dug out everything and removed all of the dead trees as well as their roots. They also cut back a ton ...

Brian came out, listened to what I had in mind, and designed a beautiful grouping of shrubs and plants for the front of my home. I wanted something simple with small evergreens and plants that are deer resistant. I am very happy with the results and would definitely hire him again.

Brian was very attentive to our needs and what would grow well- he literally remade our yard, which was failing before we had hired him. New top soil, mulch and plantings- came out beautifully. We will definitely have him back.

We are very happy with the services performed. Brian and his crew of 4-5 guys were amazing and professional. Brian knows every plant and shrub, made great suggestions, and had an excellent design sensibility. His crew was very professional and understood exactly what to do. They removed and took away two truck-loads (a big truck) of yard waste, took out two dozen large rocks that had formed border...

Description of Work
We had a very overgrown yard, both front and back. We had reached a point where we were unable to maintain our extensive plantings by ourselves and sought a major clean-up and mulching to simplify our gardens.

They were fantastic! We now have a yard again. These guys pulled out our poison ivy, tacked the vines, pruned our cherry tree, cleaned our gutters, mowed, etc. They worked from 8 to 4. Very organized, hard workers. The owner came to give us an estimate and arrived on the morning of the job. He gave us a very reasonable price. He is a really good guy, very personable and thoughtful. They are very b...

Brian and his team did an excellent job. He came out and gave us a price breakdown for each of the jobs we needed done, allowing us to choose which ones we wanted now and which we wanted to wait to complete. A couple weeks later, his crew came by and did the entire job in a day. They removed a series of overgrown holly bushes, did substantial pruning of a tree, trimmed the hedges on the side of th...

Brian provides excellent advice on plants and is very knowledgeable. He is helpful in suggesting plants that will work with conditions and space in the yard, and even will work with you to come up with a landscape plan. All the plants he planted last year (many), both small shrubs and larger shrubs and trees, have done well.

Significant landscaping and new plant installation in front and back beds. Worked with customer to create unique and appropriate landscaping. Significant clearing.
