HOMEOWNER REVIEWS SELECTED FROM SURVEYS COLLECTED:

“It was definitely positive. The work they did was really well. The construction crew was terrific. The stone work was just top-notch. Everything was really good. I'd give them an A+.”

“They were great. They laid out a plan. They executed on it perfectly, did exactly what they said they were going to do and fixed a longstanding drainage issue I had. I would grade them an A+.”

“Scapes is great. They know what they're doing. I'd grade them A+.”

“Their quality is top-notch. They did a brick sidewalk and then lots and lots of plants and the border. Overall, I'd give them an A. I already have recommended them.”

“They were very professional, and everything turned out perfectly. I'd give them an A.”

“They had attention to detail. They really stood by their work. This is actually the second time I've had them do work at our house. The first time was maybe a year and a half ago. I had some questions about that. I sent them an email at 11 o'clock and 8 a.m. the next morning I had my questions answered. So really their customer service is what I don't think you get everyday nowadays. The first project I had them do was a full backyard project. They worked on my deck. They installed a pool. They did the entire backyard landscaping. Then I called them back to do the front and add some additional plantings that we had left out of our original project. I'd give them an A+. I would totally recommend them, and I have to several people.”

“They had good communication and they kept busy. We didn't have a lot of down days or anything like that. I would give them an A+.”

“They were very thorough and had a good follow up. They did residential home landscaping. I'd give them an A+.”

“I particularly liked working with Evan. I'd give them an A.”

“Nothing really stands out. They did what I asked them to do. I'd give them an A. I would recommend them.”

“They did hardscaping. I didn't have any issues. They were efficient. They were good. Overall, I'd give them an A.”

“They had good communication just through emails, phone calls, things like that. They redid the whole backyard and redid the front yard as well. I'd say an A. They always cleaned up.”

“They always came to work on time. They did a good job, cleaned up, and they're still doing work for us. They were timely, punctual, and did a good job. They're putting up a wall and did some work on the left side of our house. I'd give them an A+.”

“They were easy to communicate with. I'd give them an A.”

“First of all, my yard looks wonderful. It's beautiful. I like that a lot. I liked Danny and I enjoyed working with Evan and Martin. All of them did exactly what they said they were going to do and the service has been exceptional. They did a whole yard. I've got about $300,000 worth of plants in my yard because they have to mature and landscape and hardscape and all of that. They did excellent work with no problems.”

“Scapes is our regular landscaper, and they've done a lot of architectural landscaping work for us. They're definitely an A+. My wife gave them a picture for replicating a mini-Versailles in our backyard, and they did it tremendously. So those guys combine a real understanding of architectural style with knowledge of plants and water runoff. They do a great job.”

“They did a great job; it was a great design, a great build, and they were on time. We had a big runoff problem, and they put a dried creek bed there, a bunch of drainage, and almond plants. I interviewed several different providers, and I felt the best about them. They get an A.”

“They're absolutely fantastic—over the top. I cannot say enough good about them. A+.”

“They definitely get an A.”

“It was excellent, and I think the designer that I worked with is extremely creative. He did our back garden some years ago and then a side garden for us this year. It's wonderful. We spend a lot of time there; it's very unique, and even with all of that, it's extremely comfortable and beautiful. You can see the garden from our downstairs, and it has totally transformed the whole area. It's just a wonderful thing—I love the gardens so much. Scapes is wonderful. We've worked directly with the designer, and his crew is great. We've had a couple of minor concerns with the garden since it was done, and he immediately sent somebody out to fix things. When we built our house 15 years ago, Scapes was recommended to us by our builder. They did the initial landscaping of our home, which we were very pleased with. I would give the company an A+ rating, and I have absolutely no complaints or concerns.”

“They cleaned out our fountain. The technician was excellent—Antonio did it, and he's amazing. He's very thorough, and he's a very nice person. He's neat and extremely diligent—he doesn't take any shortcuts. We're very happy with him. I would give Scapes an A+.”

“It was awesome. They were fantastic to work with and very professional—it was great. We had a pool and a patio built, and they took care of everything for us. I'd give them an A rating.”

“We use Scapes almost every year to have stuff touched up and added on. They do a great job, and they're very attentive and professional. Adam is the person we work with, and he just has such a wonderful way of getting stuff done. When my husband and I have a difference of opinion on what should be done, he seems to come up with a design that works for the both of us. He's wonderful. They put a pool in, and they did the design, installation, retaining walls, walkways, trees, lighting, and fencing—everything. We found Scapes after I'd seen pictures of their work and thought it looked pretty magnificent. If we have an issue, I just call Adam, and he gets the pool people out. If I have a question about the trees, he'll send somebody out. It's very convenient to have one phone number to call. They really do A+ work, and they far exceeded what I thought it could look like. We gave them a backyard with a deck falling off, and what they gave us back was an oasis or a haven.”

“I liked everything about them. There were some weather delays, but that's nothing that they can be blamed for, and everything else went very smoothly. They did a great job. They built a fire pit and did some landscaping. I found Scapes because my best friend's neighbor used them on a project, and I saw the quality of the work, so I called them. I would say they're A+.”

“Scapes is a first-class place; I've been using them for about seven years now. I like that they put the plants and pine straw in the right places. The way they do it is much better than the way most of the other companies do it. Everything is just first-class—they do what they say they're going to do, and they're really nice people. I chose them because they were fairly close to where I live. I'd give them an A.”

“Scapes has worked for me several times, and they always do an excellent job. They're efficient, they do quality work, they clean up after themselves, and they're just very professional. They've done landscaping, waterfall design and installation, and stone fireplace design and installation. I would give the company an A, for sure.”

“I liked everything about them. From the first meeting we had to all of the installations, it was a smooth process. They did a very good job. The guy that I bought my house from had literally not taken care of anything in the yard. He had let the backyard go into disrepair, just putting woodchips out. They cleared all the woodchips out, put in grass and six trees, and then did some landscaping up front. I liked how prompt they were. I chose them because they'd done some work for my parents' neighbors. Scapes gets an A+.”

“Scapes tore out a railroad tie retaining wall and replaced it with a stacked brick retaining wall. They took quite a while to get the permit from the city, but that's pretty standard. I liked that they communicated with me. If I had a question, they'd call me back in the time frame they said they would. We found them through Best Pick Reports. They deserve an A.”

“They take care of the weekly work in a timely fashion and without me having to remind them to do certain things. They do routine lawn care for me, and they've also done some landscaping. They're very easy to get in touch with, and they respond quickly. They were recommended to me when I was getting rid of another company. I would give them an A.”

“They were punctual, they worked hard, and the work was done well. The entire backyard was basically redone. I had new sod put in and new landscaping done—the whole nine yards. They put in a couple of trees and redesigned a passageway from the side of the house to the backyard. I chose them because we'd seen some of their work. I'd rate them as an A.”

“I liked that from start to finish, it was an easy process working with everyone from the landscape architect all the way to the men that did the work in the yard. Everyone was professional. They made sure that we were satisfied with the job. They've done two different jobs for us—one was a paver patio, and the other was leveling and landscaping the yard. I've already recommended them to friends and family members. I'd say Scapes gets an A.”

“They were on time, they did a good job, and they cleaned up after themselves. You can trust them. Scapes has done three projects for me. They've done two backyard landscaping projects, and they've also installed path stones and plants. They're responsive, and if you have any issues, they take care of it. I chose them because I knew of their work. I would give them an A in every category.”

“They did our landscape design and installation, and they currently do our maintenance. I like their designs, and they do a great job with the maintenance as well. I would give the company an A rating.”

“Everything they did was great. They landscaped our backyard, and we liked the design. They were there on time, and they handled everything.”

“We use Scapes almost every year. They're very attentive and professional. I'd seen pictures of their work and thought it looked pretty magnificent. We gave them a backyard with a deck falling off, and what they gave us back was an oasis. They really do A+ work, and they far exceeded what I thought it could look like.”

“It was excellent, and I think the designer I worked with is extremely creative. He did a side garden for us this year. It's extremely comfortable and beautiful—it's totally transformed the whole area. I love the garden so much. Scapes is an A+.”

“They did a great job—it was a great design, a great build, and they were on time. I interviewed several different providers, and I just felt the best about them. They get an A.”

“Scapes was fantastic to work with and very professional. They took care of everything for us. I'd give them an A rating.”

“Scapes comes every week to keep my property maintained, and I am extremely happy with them. They do an incredible job. I'd grade them as an A+.”

“They put in a patio for us, laid paving stones, and built a nice space out in our yard. They were fantastic. The quality of their work was really good, and they were very trustworthy and reliable. They showed up when they said they were they were going to show up. I would give them an A.”

“Scapes landscaped my backyard around my new pool. I'm very happy. They were very professional, and the work they did was fantastic. I'd give them an A rating.”

“They do landscape design and installation, and they are terrific. They have excellent designs, and they are very thorough. They always come in on budget for their projects, and they also hit their time line. They should get an A.”

“They came in and restored about a quarter mile of road front. It was a restoration project for a major company. Their knowledge of their services and the products they use and their personable skills are what stand out for me. The way they represented their company for my customer was outstanding. They absolutely earned an A grade.”

“They do landscape architecture. I think they do good work—our landscaping looks lovely. They have good customer service. Every time we've reached out to Keith, he's been very attentive, and he's answered us quickly. He comes out when he says he is going to come out, and when we've had any questions or problems, he's come right out. I'd give them an A.”

“Scapes has done maintenance and a project. I've used them for a couple of years. My neighbor uses them, too. They do a good job, and they're responsive. I don't think I've ever had to call them back for a follow-up. They're A+.”

“They redesigned a backyard patio, and they did a very nice job. Danny Holt is the guy who came out to my house, and he was very knowledgeable and very professional. I would give them an A+.”

“They have done a ton of landscaping around the outside of my house. They are very detailed oriented, very punctual, and very neat and orderly in their work. I'd rate Scapes as an A+ company.”

“It was a major project done. Scapes acted more as a general contractor for me. I had four different firms working, and they all collaborated really, really well. That was a big relief for me as a homeowner who works full time, has kids, and all that stuff. They deserve an A+.”

“I went with Scapes. They did some landscaping work, and it was a pretty big job. I would rate them as an A.”

“They do our weekly maintenance, and they've done some design landscaping for us. They are really great and very polite. They are very good at communication—they make sure they keep you updated. Their project manager, or the manager of the team we have, is very good about emailing us. If anything changes with the weather, like in the winter, they say, 'We're going to come out and make sure we turn off your irrigation because we don't want the lines to freeze.' They are here when they say they are going to be here. I think they are very professional. I'd give them an A.”

“I've worked with them in the past quite a bit. One, they come when they say they will come. Two, they have done an exceedingly good job of paying attention to detail and trying to make it right for me, rather than just getting the job done, which I appreciate. They do the work in a timely fashion, and the customer service is good as well. Whether it is via phone, email, etc., they try to make the communication s convenient for me. I can't think of an issue I've had with their service, so I would have to give them an A grade.”

“They have done general maintenance as well as complete landscaping, including hardscaping. They are responsive, consistent, and meticulous. I'd give Scapes an A.”

“They did some landscape addition work in the backyard, and they did a good job. I think they have people who have been with them a long time. I think the service was above average; they did what they said they would do, and they did it on time. I would give them an A.”

“It was the second time we used them. The most recent one was when they did some masonry work for our outdoor fireplace. They excavated some of an area that was way overgrown, and they also put some shrubbery and plants in some pretty large beds in both the front and backyard. They planted some trees, bushes, and those kinds of things. There was redesign work done with all of that, too. Probably my favorite thing about them is that I don't have to manage the project. We'd both rate them as an A.”

“Scapes did some landscape architecture in our yard. The project was on time, and they communicated well and did good work. They should get an A grade.”

“They basically ripped up my entire backyard and put in a new paver patio system. I think the biggest thing from the customer service side is that the program manager they sent was very engaging. He stayed with us for the whole project and gave us updates. They really came in and hit their targets. The other thing was job completion. When they were done, we truly kind of felt like we got our money's worth, which has not always happened with some of the landscaping experiences we've had. I'd give them an A.”

“I've had absolutely wonderful experiences with the quality of the work and attention to detail from Scapes. They're very thorough, and I would say they went above and beyond. They completely redesigned and installed basically a whole new front yard with sod, trees, rocks, and boulders. They're an A+.”

“Scapes is fantastic. They are very responsive and very good with customer service. They have done everything—they brought our yard back to life and made it look good. They let us know where we needed to do things we weren't currently doing to help the health of our lawn. We have been very pleased. Definitely an A.”

“Scapes was very diligent in their job. They worked hard, and the outcome is beautiful. We got a fire pit, and we landscaped our entire backyard with all new trees and shrubs. I would give them an A.”

“My experience with Scapes was good—positive in every regard. They were attentive, and if we had an issue, they resolved it quickly. They let us know how to care for the plants. They walked us through things when they were finished to describe how everything would be and that type of thing, which is good. I haven't had to call them back at any point in time to fix things. There isn't anything else I think I can say. I'd probably rate them as an A-.”

“I moved from the house Scapes did work at, but I hired them for six months, regardless. My experience working with them was more than positive—it was extremely good. They did what they said they were supposed to do. They cared for my lawn. In fact, I had another company that was coming and doing fertilizer spraying for the proper things at the proper time because I didn't know what it needed, but Scapes said, 'Well, don't worry. We can do that while we're doing everything else.' And they weren't charging me extra for that. In other words, they really wanted my product—or my lot—to look good, but that was the problem. Some might think it was a problem. I got rid of all my grass; it's pine straw, so they mainly had bushes to keep in check and clearing up debris when it happened—just everything that would make it look good. Their grade would be an A+.”

“I used Scapes; they do the yard stuff. Scapes did a major redo of our landscaping about six or seven years ago, and then we paid them to maintain it and do lawn treatment. I'd give them high marks; they're well-educated people who understand the stuff. They were creative and have continued to work with us over the years, so I would recommend them.”

“The people at Scapes are very professional. The company is very well managed with a very good end product. They stand behind any warranty-related issue if one should arise, and they do it with no questions. Coincidentally, I have them for my landscape service, but primarily, our relationship was driven by two large renovation projects, both of which went fantastically. They've earned an A.”

“I think they worked within my budget, and they were able to complete the task in a timely manner. The folks who worked on the job were super nice and cordial, and they picked up after themselves on a regular basis. If we had any concerns, they were able to meet them; they alleviated any concerns we had. There was no reason to complain. They get an A.”

“Probably the best part of working with Scapes was the interaction with Danny Holt. Having that sort of lead person handle the job made it really easy if there were any issues or concerns. This was a larger project, and they deserve an A.”

“Everything is going fabulously. I'm very pleased with their service; it's been pretty smooth sailing. Scapes is very dependable and very clean, and their work is thorough. Things get done without me asking. Granted, it's the job they should be doing, but they're not making any mistakes, and I'm not having to follow up. So overall, I am very, very pleased. At this point, they've done maintenance for both my garden and my lawn. Their grade is definitely an A.”

“Scapes did a project for me a very long time ago—nothing recent. I think that Scapes is kind of a boutique. I think they're a great company because I think they kind of brand themselves as being higher end, and I think they treat people that way as well. They did a project a long time ago. Now, they are doing my yard on a consistent basis, and they're doing a great job. They get an A rating.”

“They're still in the process doing the work for me, but everything, so far, is going fine. This is a major landscaping installation; this isn't just regular maintenance. There wasn't a reason that I chose them over another company other than just a recommendation from somebody. It's going completely smoothly; there isn't any way that they can improve. An A+ is fine for their grade.”

“Scapes does work almost every other day, every week. They're my landscaper. I like that they're consistent. They're there when they say they're going to be there, and they get the job done. I've been using them right at a year, and at no point have I had to complain or take up any issue with them—not at all. They get an A+.”

“The work Scapes did went very well. They were positive in every regard, even with having to come back to replace the tree that died. They were very good. We liked the design; I liked the stone the designer picked—Pete Wilkerson was his name. He was there quite a bit of the time making sure it went OK. There was not a negative side to it. I really can't think of any negatives that I would say. They earned their A+.”

“Scapes did a major project, and the outcome exceeded our expectations. We went through an interview process, and Pete at Scapes seemed to be able to understand my vision. They rate an A+.”

“They did their work on time and did a great job. They installed flowers at my home, and I've never had to call them back. There's no definitive way Scapes could improve. They did great, and they get an A+.”

“They were very responsive with the quality of their work. I would give Scapes an A+.”

“Scapes came up with a plan. They brought in nice, mature plants, and they made my yard look a whole lot better. I have never had to call them back to take up any complaints, and I want them to come do it again for fall. They deserve an A+.”

“Everything's fine. The company was very efficient and very professional, and they did a good job.”

“Scapes did what they said they would do in the time they said they would do it, and what they did was very good.”

“I used Scapes, and in fact, they've got a huge contract now with our neighborhood—a great contract. We live in a smaller neighborhood, and they're going to do all the maintenance—laying down pine straw twice a year, cutting our lawns, taking care of the front. It was a nice contract for them. I got them from the Home Reports. I give them an A as a grade.”

“All is good. Everybody claims to do a job well, but Scapes actually seemed to—that is a big deal. They've done a little maintenance and big projects, but I've never had to call them back at any point because they messed up or missed a spot. I would give them an A.”

“Everything's been good with these guys. They get the work done when they say they will. I have a townhome with a courtyard, so they've just done installation of hardscapes in the courtyard. I chose them because of Pete Wilkerson. They worked on my yard at one point in time. Really because of Peter Wilkerson—who has been the landscape design professional—they deserve an A.”

“Scapes met all my expectations. They set all the expectations, and they met them—that's the key. They've done regular work and maintenance for me. They managed the construction of my new backyard pool and its associated landscaping, and now I have them maintaining my yard on a regular basis. They get an A rating.”

“I like the quality; the attention to detail was good. They did a significant backyard landscaping project, and then they kind of do ongoing weekly service. I have had to call them back, unfortunately, but they fixed it. It was that easy; you call them up, and they are right there. I'd give them an A-.”

“Everything is going well. They people at Scapes are very professional and good at what they do. They're very good communicators, they're very detailed, and they execute very well. They're doing a pretty big job for me. We contacted several companies, but they—unlike their competitors—actually got back to us. Several of the others that I contacted would not return my emails or phone calls. The guy from Scapes came out with us—his schedule was flexible to meet our needs—and he developed a really good plan. He listened to what we wanted and tried to give us what we wanted in a good time frame. He set our expectations with regards to cost, but he was flexible with regard to the solution. They deserve a strong A.”

“Scapes did a great job. In fact, the job they did has proven to be invaluable since we've received so much rain this year. They did some regrading and planting, and they installed a walkway and staircase for us. It was a super job—wonderful.”

“Scapes is top-notch in regard to the quality of both the design and the installation. They reworked the landscape in our yard. I can't imagine anybody doing a better job than what they did. They were very responsive. I'd give them an A+.”

“Scapes did some landscaping for us and put in shrubs and trees. We brought them back to install some sod, and I was very pleased with them and what they did. They were very polite and nice, and they left everything clean. They're the first company that I can say I'm pleased with everything. They're an A+.”

“They're a darn good company. Outstanding. Pete is knowledgeable. He has not let me down in any regard. He knew what we wanted, and he had designs that we liked. When he put it in, the wife was happy, and you know when the wife's happy, the whole world's happy. They should probably get an A+.”

“They're great. I would absolutely recommend them—five stars. They were very responsive, and the quality of their work is very high. It costs what they tell you it's going to cost. There was nothing about it that didn't go the way I felt it should have gone. And I found Evan Rogers, who is one of the principals, to be always responsive, whether by text or email or phone. I can always get in touch with him when I need to. It worked out very well. I'd give them an A+.”

“We used Scapes, and they were good. It looks great—we get lots of compliments on it.”
