A selection of 153 homeowner reviews:
“From start to finish, the architect was always punctual, and the work crew was incredible. They cleaned up very nicely and were very polite. The quality of the service was excellent. My walkthrough was perfect. They redid the patio decking, increased my existing pool deck, did an underdeck, and then landscaped the backyard. I'd give them an A+.”
“I had a positive experience. If there's a 200 percent score, I'd go with 200 percent. They do what they say, they show up on time, they clean up after themselves, and they do a great job. They're great artisans of their trade.”
“We were very happy with the way the patio with a built-in grilling station with countertops, storage compartments, and built-in drawers turned out. The whole process was great. We'd give them an A+ rating for sure.”
“It was excellent. They were fantastic. A++.”
“They came in and they did an outdoor fire pit and seating area. They were really professional. I would highly recommend them. They maintained a clean job site and they were punctual. I would say they're an A.”
“They were fantastic. They deserve an A.”
“They were very good.”
“They did a good job. They did what they said they were going to do. They landscaped our backyard. They drew up the plans and did the work. They deserve an A.”
“They did some design work for us on a possible outside project. Everybody was timely and hit the time goals we put out there. They get an A grade from me. I think I've actually recommended them.”
“We had a very good experience. They were very professional.”
“They're good. They're very professional. They did landscaping and hardscaping. They're A's.”
“It was a positive experience. They did a good job.”
“They were really good, really professional from start to finish. Rick was great at coming up with an idea that we could use. They got it together, came out, and it was put together really fast. It looks great. We're enjoying it. They did a backyard patio and they fixed a drainage problem by putting in a dry creek bed that goes all the way to our front yard. The water was pooling, and they landscaped that area so that it would sort of absorb the water, but it also looks pretty. They did some landscaping in the back too. I'd give them an A grade. Especially the cleanliness, they cleaned up every day, like every little thing. I've recommended them to two people already.”
“They were adding some new sod, but they've done another big project for us too. I'd rate them an A.”
“They deserve an A.”
“I would give it an A.”
“They were always reliable, prompt, and do very good work. They've done both landscape and hardscape. They installed a driveway, did stone steps, and they poured some concrete addition in our back. I'd rate them as an A.”
“I thought they were creative and they got the work done quickly. They landscaped our backyard—grass, trees, and bushes. I'd give them an A.”
“We had a positive experience.”
“They were very professional and always showed up on time. We worked with a man who made himself very available. Any time we had questions about what they had installed, he answered them. They redid our whole backyard. They installed a bunch of plants, redid the grading, and then installed a lot of sod as well. They were in Best Pick Reports—I love that book. Outside Landscape Group is awesome. I'd give them an A.”
“I told them at the beginning what I wanted and what I didn't want. He came back with a drawing of what he wanted and what I didn't want, so I got him straightened out to what I wanted, and it worked out. They were did some hardscape—a front walkway, a porch, and a sidewalk. It was beautiful work. I was satisfied; they showed up, they did what they were supposed to do, and they did a good job. I'd give them an A.”
“They were fantastic the entire way through, from bid all the way through to the execution and final walkthrough. I've already recommended them. They'd be an A. ”
“They did everything they said they were going to do, and they cleaned up after themselves every night. When they left at the end of the job, they were pressure washing the cul-de-sac—not even where anything had taken place, but just because they might have left dirt on the road. I was very, very, very pleased. We had some extensive landscaping done in our backyard, and we had them add a fire pit. I had no issues with them at all.”
“It was great. I liked their professionalism. They were on time, the crew was great, and they really seemed to care about what they were doing. They landscaped my entire backyard; they put in a patio, irrigation system, and sod. They also did a total landscape design and planting. When I put out a bid, I hadn't used any of the previous companies that I looked at. I looked at three different companies, and Outside Landscape Group was the only one that brought some creativity and their own ideas to the table. I'd give them an A+.”
“They're professional, they made a quick plan, and they finished the work really fast. They planted trees in the backyard, did new plantings, and did a little stone stairwell down the front. It took about 30 days. They're very good. I would give them an A+ grade.”
“They did a concrete patio and some various landscape work. Their customer service was good. They listened to what our needs were and met them, and they gave us good service. They get an A+.”
“Outside Landscape Group did work for me, and they did a great job. They did an architectural landscape for me, and they installed it in a couple days. They came back later and put in an irrigation system as well. I'd have to give them an A.”
“We ended up working with Outside Landscape Design. They did a big project for us—it was a full outdoor renovation. The backyard was completely stripped down, and they took out five or six trees. Then, they graded it and leveled a couple of areas. They put in some outdoor hardscape as well. I liked the fact that they had certified landscape architects drawing a plan. I feel that they heard what we were saying and what we wanted to do, and I feel like they were dynamic. Sometimes, things changed as they went based on things we said. They took what we said and incorporated it, and we were really happy with the outcome. I'd give them an A.”
“I felt that the design they worked on was close to what I wanted, and they did a good job of determining what worked in the yard. Their customer service was good. They get an A. I actually got a hold of them because they were doing a job for a neighbor.”
“They did some landscaping in my backyard. Their customer service was good, and the guy I worked with would respond to my emails whenever I would email him with a problem. I would grade them as an A. They're not quite done with some work, but so far, it's good.”
“They're hardworking, attentive to detail, and interested in our feedback. We put in a backyard, and they did a lot of landscaping work for a pool that we have. ”
“They helped us with outdoor landscaping work. I'd give them an A rating.”
“Outside Landscape Group did more than they said they were going to do. They cleaned up every day, and it was remarkable. The staff was incredibly competent. They aimed to please, and we are more than thrilled with the results. We actually got designs from three different landscape architects, and Outside Landscape Group listened to us and gave us what we wanted. Honestly, I don't think an A+ is high enough.”
“They were clean and respectful, and they really did a great job. They did a lot of drainage work, and they created and planted beds, mulched everything, and did a lot of grading and grass work. The planting is gorgeous, and it's awesome.”
“Outside Landscape Group totally redid the landscaping around my deck area, and they were wonderful—A+. They planted some stuff and replaced the lines in the sprinkler system.”
“Rick Kaldrovics puts my plants in, and he actually does some pool work for me, too. He's incredible. He's from Outside Landscape Group, and he's located nearby. My neighbors just used him. He's very, very good. I would give him an A++.”
“They did work maybe two years ago. They're a very good, excellent group, and I'd give them very high marks. I'd give them an A, and in fact, we are using them again this fall for a new project on our house.”
“The landscape was a dry creek bed with river stones, so it had three tons of rocks, a variety of plants, and a walkway—they made a backyard area without grass. The work went well. It was on time—actually, early—and it came out exactly as they said it would. It was an A.”
“They did a front yard—they redid our landscape. They ripped out a lot of the old landscape that didn't look too good and did a whole redesign installation in the front yard. It was very good, everything went really well, and they did an excellent job. It all looks really good—we're waiting for it all to grow in and flesh out, but it all looks really good. I would say that the company is an A.”
“Outside Landscape Group was very good. He did a plan for us last fall and completed the work before Thanksgiving. They did some hardscapes as well as landscape pathways and plantings. Rick had done a landscape plan for us before, and he had done some work for the neighborhood as well, so we just had him out to do some more planning. I would give their business an A.”
“They did work here, and everything went well—they did the walkway. I would give the company an A.”
“They've been good. We had a landscaping patio project done. I liked their approach—it's a real good process—and I liked how they handled themselves. I'd give them an A.”
“They did a good job. They did a bunch of landscaping outside like installing sod bushes and putting up a wall. They were coordinated very well, they were on time, and they delivered what they said they would and did a good job to make sure I was happy by the end of the day. They're A-grade.”
“Everything was great—they did a good job. They put in a fire pit. I interviewed three companies, and they stood out to me. It was an A-rate job.”
“I had an excellent experience with Outside Landscape. They listened to what I wanted and were very responsive. They went above and beyond—they did everything they said they were going to do and more. They were polite, courteous, clean, on schedule and were master craftsmen, and the stonemasons were awesome. They did an overall outstanding job—A+.”
“Outside Landscape was absolutely wonderful—I couldn't give enough good information about these people. They came out, took our basic landscaping, and created a plan that was absolutely beautiful. They executed it exactly as they had indicated they would. I'd give them an A+.”
“Outside Landscape was outstanding. They're very good at putting together designs, which is something we aren't very good at. I had a great experience with them.”
“They're still doing work for me. I love those guys—they're great. They're ripping up everything and putting down a whole new yard. They're also adding decks, trails, and retaining walls. They're really doing it. They're actually doing landscaping. I've had the house for over ten years, and I've been living in two different places and didn't really care about the yard. So I decided to stay here, and I had them rip it up and put a new one in. They are super professional. If anything happens, I know ahead of time. If anything goes wrong, I know right away. If anything goes well, I know right away. They know what the heck they're doing. All of their workers are great people—everybody they've sent has been professional and does really good work. It's been a positive experience, and I'd definitely give them an A+. The work is solid, good stuff.”
“They did a job for me last fall. It was very positive experience, and I'll use them again. They produced a very nice, creative plan for our backyard that was very well done. They kept the project within budget. They started when they said they would start and finished when they said they would finish. They had good workers who were well supervised, they used quality materials, and they followed up afterward. I would recommend them very highly and would probably use them again. I'd give them an A.”
“It was great—it went really well. They did my entire backyard. They did a pool, covered deck, and redid the landscaped. They were good—they showed up on time, and they had excellent craftsmanship. I would definitely say it was a positive experience.”
