“Meridian was extremely understanding of my landscaping needs. They were very helpful in the design and implementation process. I would highly recommend their services to any friend or neighbor.”

“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.”

“The main thing I liked was that, when they ran into some problems with some of the work, they came back and fixed it, twice. I liked that they stood by their work. I’d give them a B for my overall experience.”

“It was a great experience. They did about 800 square feet of hardscaping and about 150 linear feet of wall. They came in well below other quotes. They used natural materials for the stone and pavers. They started on time. They finished on time and the work was very high quality. It was the first time that I used them. I think they would get an A+.”

“There are no issues. It worked out very well. There was a backyard patio resurfacing and draining put in around the perimeter of the property. There was some flagstone around the pool area and there was some planting put in and then in the front, there was the front sidewalk steps and planting of shrubs on the front and side and some small walls put in too. I would say that they were pretty much on schedule. There were little surprises. They were responsive. They had to come back for a few things but it was minor and it was communicated on a timely basis. The quality of the plants weren't what they wanted so there were some delays but they explained the delays so it was something I could live with. I would say they're an A-. Something wasn't communicated so it delayed it for a couple of weeks at two different times.”

“They were beyond exceptional. I've been working with them incrementally; there’s been a progression with this whole thing in terms of enhancing the yard and steps. On a yearly basis, we accomplish a lot, and then we move on to the next thing. We did some bed enhancements, too, on two additional trees. It's beautiful. It's very methodical. We did a sort of cleanup for the beds and all that. They're just incredibly nice people, and they knew exactly what they were doing. I couldn't be happier. I would give them a triple A+.”

“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.”

“We absolutely loved the work that they did. They did our front walkway. They tore up our old walkway and put down concrete and then laid down our new flagstone and then they refreshed our landscaping. So they pulled up the old plants and put new plants in. So they did a fantastic job. They were on time, professional, everything was cleaned up at the end of the day because it was multiple days that they did this over and the price was excellent as well. I chose them because they (inaudible), they worked (inaudible). I'd give them A+.”

“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.”

“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.”

“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.”

“I would give them excellent ratings on everything.”

“They're thorough. They really pay attention to my ideas and the thoughts that I have with my property. They kind of tell me what can work and what can't based on how my landscape is and after the work, I've had a couple things that I've done with them, but after the work's been done, if I need for them to come back and take care of some things, they do. I don't have to call them twice. They've done, they've built a dry stack around an area of my property that was starting to suffer from erosion. They've put plants in. When a plant's died, they've replaced it. They put in sod. They built, they rebuilt my interior courtyard and did the hardscape as well as the landscape for that. I would give them an A+. I mean even though pricing is, like I wouldn't say that when I went with them their pricing was the lowest but they certainly made up for it in customer service and follow through so it's worth the money.”

“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.”

“They were great. They were professional. They made their appointments when they said they were going to make them and they quoted reasonable prices and they did the job the way that we wanted it done. They did some beds and an arched gable and that sort of thing. You know I don't particularly remember why I chose them. I mean I looked around at a lot of different companies and they were just one that seemed to stand out to me. I would give them an A+.”

“They were very quick to start the work. They did a patio with a pergola, landscaping itself. I would give them a B. I would recommend them. The only thing I was not too happy with was the ending of it. They did the pergola and the bottom needs to be sealed. I don't think that's taken place just yet. That would be just paying more attention to the details at the very end of the project. They did an exceptional job. I don't want to take away from that, the patio, pergola and all of that. But that would be one suggestion I would give.”

“Meridian Landscaping was excellent. They came by quickly, made an estimate, explained it very clearly, and then came in and did the work exactly how they said they would. They took care to make sure it looked good when it was done, and the workers were very good. They did it rather quickly, but I think they took their time and made sure the final touches looked good. I chose them because a combination of the cost and the way they clearly explained the project and what they would do. I would use them again, and I’d give them an A.”

“They installed about seven trees in our yard. They didn’t make any mistakes, and they followed through with everything they said they would do—I didn’t have to go out and tell them they were doing it wrong or something. It was painless, it was straightforward, and there were no mistakes. The customer service was very good. The landscape designer we worked with looks like a rock star, so we’re going to be going with them again to install some trees in our front yard. I’d give them an A. There are some very minor things they could improve upon—they could have texted me and given me the exact time, and they could have come back to my house and said, ‘This is what we just did. How does it look?’ They just came out at the beginning and at the end, which was still pretty good—I’m a perfectionist, and they weren’t perfect, but they were nice.”

“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.”

“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.”

“I love Meridian Landscaping. They did extensive landscaping. I had beds torn out and replanted—whole new landscaping in my front yard and my backyard. They also laid a patio and a walkway around the pool for me and a flagstone walkway going up to my front door. They did what they said they were going to do, and they showed up when they said they were going to show up. They were on time, on budget, polite, clean, and nice.”

“They were great. We had them lay a flagstone patio and a flagstone walkway, and then they also dug out two garden beds for us. They came in on time and under budget. The work they did was great. I don't have anything but positive things to say about them. Everything looks great. I really like the look of the backyard. A close friend of mine knows the owner or one of the owners of the company, and he put me in touch with them. I would give them an A+ grade.”

“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.”

“Everything was fine. They were prompt and reliable. They worked on a patio. I already have recommended them to a friend. I give them somewhere between an A-, B+.”

Review by

“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-.”

“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+.”

Review by
01/13/2014

“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.”

“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+.”

“It was a positive experience. Meridian Landscaping did a nice job on the wall on the patio they built. The stonework was good. It cost a few thousand dollars. I chose them because of good references and reasonable price—not the lowest bid, but it was an OK price. I've had to call them back to fix things. They came back and fixed about 85% of it. I would give them an A.”

Review by
08/13/2013

“It was positive overall. Meridian Landscaping paid attention to detail. They put the retaining wall in and re-did the backyard. It was a big project. It was done January of this year. I've had to call them back. They were not really responsive. It took a few tries. They finally did and it's a resolved issue. They would get a B+.”

“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+.”

Review by

“Generally, it was positive. They could have done a little better. Well, they, we had two parts of the project Meridian Landscaping did, hardscape like a flag stone patio thing and then the landscaping. Some of the landscaping they couldn't do right away because it was the middle of winter, the plants weren't available for what they needed. So, they told us they were going to, they were going to do the, you know, do the plant installation come early Spring and early Spring came and went and I e-mailed several times like kind of remind them that we still needed the project finished and the guy said that you know, kept saying that oh, I'll get to it. He never got to it. So, eventually he did get to it. So, that was just a little frustrating that they didn't, that they weren't really responsive, but the sidewalk, the sidewalk looks really nice and we're really happy with that. But I think, just like communications wasn't very good. I'd give them an B.”

“We used Meridian. They, they did some work on a back, back deck for us, and then work on some landscaping across the yard, and helping with some drainage problems. I'd say it was a B to B+. There was one issue, but apart from that, they did, they did a good job on the yard. B. I would recommend them. Apart from one issue, overall I had a positive experience.”
