My name is Robert De Cesare, and I started my own landscape company in 2013. I hold a college degree in landscape design and installation and actually began my hands-on experience in the masonry field at age 12, when I began working with my dad in his business. I learned a lot about paver work from my dad, which has given me a solid landscaping background, beyond what I learned in college about design and installation. I know how to listen to the "wants" of my clients and how to "make it work" for them. As a small company, I am able to provide personal service and full responsibility for all work performed. I provide a full list of services (see below) and welcome working on landscaping projects, large or small...

Rob is extremely unproductive and unprofessional. We were in contact with him to do a 6 ft privacy fence in addition to our neighbors who were getting the same fence, landscaping and patio done by him. He came out on Tuesday around 1030/11 (after he had told our neighbors, he’d be there to start their holes first thing in the morning) they were here for an hour to dig the holes and left. He had told our neighbors he would be back later that day with lumber but never showed up. City came to inspect their holes on Wednesday...Rob didn’t show up. He then told both us and our neighbors he’d be back on Thursday in which quickly changed to “Thursday or Friday”. Thursday evening rolled around and my husband asked him if he’d be coming on Friday. He said he was going to try and when asked what he would be getting done he said he wasn’t sure (🙄). Now here we are on Friday afternoon and he still hasn’t showed up to work on our or our neighbors fence. No text or phone calls even after my husband asked where he was. Thankfully, we never paid him because we are switching companies. He clearly doesn’t care or value his customers and has the worlds worst work ethic. Don’t hire.

Hi [Member Name Removed]. Thank you for leaving an honest review. It was tough to stomach at first, but I now understand it from your perspective. You're absolutely right, I dropped the ball. To be completely honest with you, this isn't the first ball that I have dropped. The truth is, I took on too many customers and have been scrambling ever since. I agree with you, my behavior was unprofessional and unacceptable. And frankly, I'm embarrassed that it has gotten to this point. You and your husband were super patient with me and I still dropped the ball. I am so sorry that you two got caught up in my madness. [Member Name Removed], for stepping up and helping me to see the bigger picture here. I am truly sorry for wasting your time.Rob De Cesare

Entered into contract with this company in March 2018 with the understanding that my fence and concrete install would be completed by July 2018. July came and went and numerous phone calls were made and many promises and then excuses were made. Finally, I was assured that my work would be completed "first thing" in the spring of 2019. I was their "first priority". In March of 2019, we had tremendous rain and flooding, but they insisted on doing the fence install then. My yard was totally destroyed by their equipment as well as my perennial gardens. they left piles of mud everywhere and did not clean up after themselves. In addition, they left numerous nails in both my and my neighbors yards and we both have dogs. I did not complain then for fear of retribution on my concrete job which was to be completed in May. Again, numerous phone calls and broken promises were made. The last promise was for November. I was told that the cold would not affect the concrete installation which I found out is not true when they called to cancel the install "due to cold weather". I notified this company in a letter that I was no longer going to deal with them and definitely would NOT recommend them to anyone. I feel that I was made a low priority due to the size of the job. I also believe that he underquoted me and when he realized he was going to take a loss, he just kept putting off completing the job. Very poor customer service and sloppy work habits (cigarette butts and pop cans scattered in my yard).

Had to wait three months after we got the estimate for them to come and do the work. They would only do the work when it was raining because they had more lucrative work to do when the weather was good. Felt like they didn’t appreciate me as a customer. The estimate called for large stones to be put around the drainpipes to slow the water going through them. This was supposed to be new, clean material. What De Cesare brought was dirty muddy rock that included pieces of broken cement, leftover construction debris from another job. Again, I felt like they didn’t appreciate me as a customer. When we first talked with De Cesare Landscaping to get an estimate for the job I asked them if they would be able to gate spread, from the back of a dump-truck, the limestone to top dress our driveway. I wanted to put at least three inches of new stone on top of the new drain tiles, approximately five and ten tones of stone. They showed up with a small trailer with maybe one or two tones of limestone, which they could not gate spread. De Cesare Landscaping lacked the talent and equipment to do my job properly. I will never use them again. I will have to hire someone in the spring to do the job properly.

[Member Name Removed], I am very sorry about your job I apologize for never calling you to let you know about the job and when I could do it it was a lack on my end and sorry about it


Teri K.

Robert and his crew did an awesome job creating a beautiful retaining wall in our backyard. They first had to demolish a waterfall and pond and then prepare the area for a 3 tier wall. Robert was very attentive as we described the type of look we wanted to achieve in the backyard. He worked diligently to design and create a wall and we could not be happier with the end result. Robert and his crew were on-time, professional, and conscientious every day on the job. Robert is an excellent communicator and we look forward to having Decesare Landscaping back in the spring to complete another job.

He came to my home to give me an estimate for 550 square foot pstio, including steps. The quote was 7700, which was about 800 more than the Angie's list coupon. When I brought this to his attention he said that he made a mistake and sent me a revised quote, which was several thousand dollars more. When I asked him about it he said he didn't include the steps on the first quote (which I checked, and is not true) and the extra labor because the gate to my backyard is narrow. In my opinion, this is dishonest business practices, and I wouldn't do business with him even if he honored the Angie's list coupon.

The coupon was for a 500 sqft patio and dosnt include the steps so that's and extra cost and the extra labor because of tight access is why the price was more then the offer



Everything went well. Rob actually went out of his way to get the job done ahead of time for me because of out of town company that was coming. Had hired another Angies List provider that did a no show on me and Rob really stepped up and helped me out. I really appreciated him doing this for me, he had no obligation to me but went out of his way. I highly recommend him and would use him again. His workers were good but ended up costing me an extra yard of mulch because I told them not to put mulch in a couple of areas until they knew they had enough but they started with those areas first and I had to buy and extra yard of mulch which I wasn't too happy about. If that's the only thing I have to complain about I'm pretty lucky because they did a beautiful job. Do not hesitate to use this company.

We issued requests for bids to 4 companies for removal of front walkway and front step, installation of low retaining wall on one side of walkway, and drains on both sides of front step. We were looking for a remedy for the mess of mulch and soil that ended up in our front walk following heavy rains from the 2 roof peaks that made our gutters overflow. We choked on estimates of 3 landscapers but were pleased with the bid from Robert DeCesare. Working with him, we were able to come up with the same design (using the same materials as those from our HIGHEST BIDDER) at a much lower cost. His lead time fit our plans, and we were so pleased with his work and the new look it gave to the front of our house that we scheduled Robert to do low retaining walls on the other side of our entry. Looking beyond that, we decided to "go for the gold" and have him tear up our shabby front lawn and replace it. We continue to receive loads of compliments on the "curb appeal" that has been added to our home. THANKS, ROBERT! Robert worked through some blazing hot weather to get the stonework in place for us on time. He never complained and never missed a day. Robert takes pride in his design skills and performs the job with precision. Highly recommend this young man and will hire him again for any work we may need.
