Primary purpose of this job was hardscape; landscape was secondary to the project. We primarily needed to replace our solid brick front walkway and front stoop, and to have a stone wall built to balance a steep sloping yard. Earlier in the fall we had received numerous bids from a number of companies selected from Angies list (with high ratings) with widely varying price bids. While we had a few ideas and preferences, we were looking for a company that would hear those ideas, but offer confident suggestions for the most successful and attractive outcome. Despite meeting some nice owners/reps from other companies, no one seemed to totally "click" for us. On a whim, I called Johnson's Landscaping after receiving an advertising post card from them in the mail. Jamie, the designer who came out to look at our project, was very low-key but had the best overall vision for the entire project, and also the best plant and tree suggestions that would ultimately be worked in. We had to wait some time before they could start our project, and we were hoping for completion by Thanksgiving. They weren't able to meet that deadline in the end, but the overall quality was worth the wait. The stonework crew was absolutely top-notch; showing up punctually each day, and working efficiently & meticulously through each stage. The end result of the new flagstone walkway, porch stoop, and stone walls was even more beautiful than we could've imagined. If there ever was any concern, (and there were very few with this crew!) Jamies was just a phone call away, and always addressed any issues right away. The landscaping (done by a different group of workers) that followed did not go quite as smoothly as the stone work, but again, Jamie was responsive and attentive when needed. The crew that came to do the landscaping required us to monitor the progress a bit more; they ultimately got everything planted attractively, but they seemed to need more direction from Jamie. As with any expensive home project, the homeowners must be careful to monitor the progress and bring up concerns ASAP. Because Jamie was so good with responding to our calls concerning a less-efficient landscape crew, we are giving this company an "A" rating. And they deserve it for overall quality and beauty of design. We have received numerous compliments from friends and neighbors, and 1+ year later we are still so pleased with the work.
