“Meridian was excellent. They took care to make sure the work looked good when it was done, and the workers were very good. I would use them again, and I'd give them an A.”
“They were great. They laid a flagstone patio and walkway and dug out two garden beds for us. The work they did was great, and I really like the look of the backyard. They're an A+.”
“I love Meridian. They did extensive work in my front yard and backyard. They planted beds, and they laid a patio and walkway. They were on time, polite, clean, and nice.”
“They're very punctual, professional, and courteous, and they follow up. I would give them an A for the overall experience.”
“They were very professional. They built a retaining wall for us, and the designer we worked with was very good.”
“This is my second or third time using Meridian Landscaping & Design, and I had no concerns. A++.”
“They did a thorough job, and they came when they said they were supposed to. They stuck to what they said they were going to provide. I'd give them an A. They did very good work.”
“I'd give them an A for my overall experience.”
“I thought the design was fine, and they were generally prompt and on time. They did outdoor hardscaping and landscaping. I'd give them an A.”
“It was pretty good. They did what I asked them to do. They tailored it to what we wanted. They were good at advising us on stuff that we needed to do differently. I think they did everything very well. We're very happy with the whole thing. They did a rock patio with some lighting and steps off our deck. They offered a five-year warranty. The other company I talked to only gave me a one-year warranty. I would give them an A.”
“We've used them for a much larger project, which they've also just finished, so the experience has been very positive. The first project was that they landscaped the side of the house—they removed a tree and some other plants, and then they put in a lot of groundcover plants and mulched. That was the first job, and it was a design plus planting. The second one was a design of a patio and plantings as well. There have been a lot of hardscaping jobs on the patio and the lighting and everything, and that's what they did in the second one. They did a very good job on both. I had a good rapport and a lot of communication with the landscape designer, and anything we didn't understand or wanted changed, he dealt with immediately. The crew was very nice and worked very hard in some very hot weather. They were here every day when they could be and when it didn't rain, and they got done on time, so there were no problems with anything. They deserve an A+. I would recommend them highly to anybody else who wants similar work done.”
“I would give them excellent ratings on everything.”
“We had an issue with a landscaper that my father had been using, but Meridian restored the whole area and put in maybe 50-something plants approved by the residents' association. They also kind of smoothed things over with the neighbor who was upset about the previous landscaper. The people at Meridian worked everything out, and the neighbor was happy; if the neighbor's happy, I'm happy. I didn't know where to begin, but they kind of walked me through everything and basically took over and handled it through the residents' association with the neighbor. I was happy. We still have Meridian doing the landscaping over there. I'd give them an A+ from my experience.”
“They did a good job. They installed a patio for us. They're pretty detail oriented, and their craftsmanship was very good. They finished quickly. There were a couple of little things that they mentioned off to the side, and they actually did them—I wasn't actually specifically asking them to do some things. I told them about a couple of things that I might do afterward, and they actually went ahead and did those things themselves for me, so that was pretty good. I would give them an A+ for this particular job.”
“I had a good experience with them, especially the second person who was in charge. Whoever the foreman was on the most recent installation, he was really, really good. He recommended a specific kind of grass or a new turf, and he went out of his way to get it for us. He didn't have to do that, but it's turned out to be great, and they've been really good about replacing things if there's a plant that dies or something. My landscape designer recommended them. I would say they're an A.”
“Meridian was beyond exceptional. I've been working with them to enhance the yard and steps, and they did some bed enhancements around two additional trees. It's beautiful, and they're incredibly nice people. They knew exactly what they were doing, and I couldn't be happier. I would give them a triple A+.”
“We absolutely loved the work that Meridian did. They did our front walkway, and then they refreshed our landscaping. They pulled up the old plants and put new plants in, and they did a fantastic job. They were on time and professional, and everything was cleaned up at the end of the day. They get an A+.”
“Working with Meridian was a great experience. They did about 800 square feet of hardscaping and about 150 feet of wall. They used natural materials for the stone and pavers, and the work was very high quality. I'd grade them as an A+.”
“I love Meridian Landscaping. They were fabulous—we had a positive experience.”
“They were very personal and hands-on, and they listened very well to what I needed. They did two separate jobs for me. One was building a stone patio and landscaping, and the other was building a stone pillar at the end of my driveway. It looks great. They were extremely responsive. I would not hesitate to recommend them. They were responsive to everything both during the initial inquiry and while the project was going on, and they were very good at communicating. They showed up when they said they were going to show up, and they got the job done. They worked very steadily. I was very, very pleased with them—they did such a good job. They deserve an A+, and I'd use them again.”
“They were at my house just last week getting a different quote. They did a host of things. I was very pleased with the whole spectrum of services they provided. They demolished my small backyard, and they installed a large flagstone patio and large stone steppers, planted a lot of shrubs, and fertilized and mulched it. They were courteous and professional, and they did what they said they were going to do. They showed up on time and cleaned up after themselves. They did all the things you expect somebody to do. Everything went very well. They get an A.”
“Meridian Landscaping did the job well. They planted trees and bushes in the front yard and backyard. I'd recommend them, and I'd give them an A.”
“They did a very good job. They did what they said they were going to do, and there was no hassle. They put a flowerbed in my backyard around my deck, and they moved several plants from my backyard and replaced them with two trees. I'd definitely recommend them. I'd rate them as an A.”
“Meridian was extremely responsive and very good at communicating. They built a stone patio for me and did landscaping and foundation planting. They also built a stone pillar at the end of my driveway, and it looks great. I was very, very pleased with them, and I would not hesitate to recommend them. They did such a good job—A+.”
“Meridian has probably the best landscape designer. Everything they said they'd do, they followed through with. They planted about seven trees in our yard, and it was straightforward, and no mistakes were made. I'd give them an A.”
“Meridian was great. I don't have anything but positive things to say about them. We had them install a flagstone patio and walkway, and then they also redid two gardens. Everything looks great. I really like the look of the backyard—A+.”
“I enjoyed working with Ava, who did the landscape design. That's who I worked with most directly. She was just great to work with. She told me the timeline she had, and she was never late, followed up, and was out here numerous times. She kind of served as our project manager. She made my life so easy because I could not be involved directly too much. She laid out the design—both the stonework as well as the landscaping. I would give them an A+.”

Matt is the real deal. My house looked terrible before he helped us. The landscaping was nothing short of spectacular. We wanted to have everything that the yard deserved, and Matt did everything we wanted. He did the right thing for my yard. The lighting looks like something out of a magazine, and it's really beautiful. The landscaping is really gorgeous. I'd give them an A+.

Meridian Landscaping was professional, and they used quality plants. They planted a new bed on the side of my yard and my backyard. They're an A+.

Meridian Landscaping did a very nice job. I was very pleased with the entire thing. The owner was very nice and personally concerned with doing everything well. I would definitely use him again, and I would give Meridian an A.

“I liked that they arrived early, they stayed late, and the job was done within the time frame that they said it would be. If something wasn't done right, they fixed it very quickly. Overall, it was very pleasant. We were referred to them because they were working with a landscape architect who is a friend of ours, and she only uses them. We liked her work very much, so her opinion of them is kind of a no-brainer to go on. I'd probably give them an A+. I had no problems or complaints at all.”

Meridian Landscaping did a very nice job. I was very pleased with the whole thing. The fellow that runs the business was particularly nice and personally concerned with doing everything well; he stopped by a couple of times. I would definitely call him again. I would grade them an A.

I thought Meridian was very good. They did some landscaping and hardscaping in my backyard, and they put in a dry creek bed for me too, which gets wet when it rains. They were professional, and they came in on budget. I would give them an A.

Meridian Landscaping has a personal touch because they're a small enough company; it's really nice that you can actually talk to the owner. I would give them an A grade on the work they did for us. Everything went great.

It went great. They're very responsive. They handle both phone calls and email, and they respond very quickly either way. They do what they say they're going to do, and they charge what they say they're going to charge. They typically do maintenance-type work, and they do good with it. They get an A.

They repaired some damage that was done by a different company to my lawn and landscape. They did a couple things: they fixed a huge tire mark, and they also fixed some tree damage. Then they came in and replaced trees, replanted new trees, mulched, and then fixed the yard and the grass. They're prompt and very easy to deal with. They were there at the times they said they were going to be there, and it can be very frustrating when businesses don't show up when they say that they are going to, so that part was very good. I'd give them an A+.

“Overall, I think they did a good job. I had them come and just do landscaping once, and then I actually had them come back and do a patio for me. So overall, I think I'm satisfied. We had a few communication hiccups but nothing that would prevent me from using them in the future. I reached out to a couple of people, and they weren't one of the first ones to respond, but they were responsive through the whole bidding process, so that's how I stuck with them. I would give them an A-.”

Everything they did was perfect. They laid a patio, and it’s gorgeous. I never could have imagined how pretty it would turn out. They’ve also done some landscaping for me—excellent. The choices they made are beautiful. All my neighbors compliment me. Everything they did was top-notch. They’re one of the few contractors I would give an A+.

I’m so happy. Meridian planned the project with me, then they took the design I gave them and implemented it in a way I was very pleased with. They added stepping stones, plants, and a stone stairway. It went great. I would give them an A+.

Meridian was thorough and professional, and the owner was on site at the beginning to make sure everything was going to go well. I appreciated all that they did. I’d give them an A+.

They’re good, and their stone mason is excellent—very thorough and methodical. He did a great job. Give them an A.

They’ve actually worked for us for a number of years now. They have done a couple of very large projects—installing a lot of landscaping, taking down trees, and building patio retaining walls. They’ve always been great. They’re kind of our go-to landscapers.

They do excellent work. It’s ongoing. I appreciate their knowledge, and expertise, and friendliness—they are experts, all the way across. They’re excellent. I give them high marks on all accounts.

I thought they did a terrific job. I’m very pleased with my front yard; I think it looks great. I didn’t know exactly what I wanted in my front yard, and as far as creativity was concerned, I left it in their hands. They came back with a terrific design, and I was very pleased. I am the envy of my neighborhood.

They're a good company. They gave me some plans and executed the plans, and it worked great. I'll give them an A -. They're excellent. I hired them because they're also a customer of my business. After they started doing the work, they were a greater customer, and they were a great vendor to me at my house.

Meridian Landscaping did an excellent job. We're very pleased with the work that they did. They put in a stone retaining wall, they did extensive drainage, and they did landscaping and stone steps. And it's beautiful; it's held up great. They were here every day working hard. The men really knew what they were doing, and they really seemed to know a lot of details about all of this, and how to handle the drainage issues we had on the property. They've been great, and we've been very pleased.

Meridian Landscaping was great. We were happy. They did a major patio and retaining wall project for us about three years ago, and it's doing great. We were happy with the work at the time, and we're still happy with it now that it's going to mature. They were organized, and they delivered on what they promised in their proposals. It was good value for the work that was done.

Meridian Landscaping—Matt Kucik—has been very good. They show up on time. Also, when they say they're going to complete a job, they complete it. They planted some bushes that didn't take, and they replaced them at no charge. I was very happy that they went all-out trying to find a plant that would do better in that part of the yard, where there's a lot of shade. So they're very detailed—they take time finding their bushes, and they plan to put them in a certain area. We had drainage problems, and Matt came out a couple of times to talk to me and my husband. That's another good thing about him also—my husband has weird hours, so he would fit his schedule regarding my husband's hours, so he could talk to him and answer the questions my husband had. And he did a great job on the drainage. We got some guys that can come and work with all this stone. I have a dry creek, and along the backyard I have some stones, where the water spouts go underneath the ground, and when it rains it nicely flows along the creek.

They replaced the plants, and he also does the lawn service. They aerate it, and he told us how to keep the grass about three inches long so it doesn't burn. I guess we had that problem, too, because I guess we cut the grass so short with the intense sun that it would burn the grass, and we don't water all the time. And he said, 'Well another solution for that is to keeping the grass three inches long. It provides a little bit of shade, so when you cut it again the next time you have green underneath,' and that was true. So he's given us a lot of little tips like that. He's a very personable, very down-to-earth person, Matt Kucik, and his workers are just the same. I've recommended him to other neighbors and friends.

I had a new patio installed by Meridian Landscaping.  Everything turned out wonderful.  They just installed it two weeks ago.  They finished on schedule and cleaned up after themselves.  They were incredibly professional, and they kept to their schedule.  They were very good.
