Front Yard Landscaping

We completely re-landscaped our front yard including driveway, porch and garden. Peter and his team were able to give us beautiful, contemporary front yard that is the envy of the neighborhood.

Correspondence:
Everyone from Green Apple Landscaping showed up on time for appointments and were often early. General correspondence was efficient through e-mails and during construction I could easily reach their team via their cell phone. It was a pleasure to see a company follow up with its clients and not have to chase people around to get an answer.

Design Phase:
This was the slowest part of the project as it took a number of revisions to get the design to where we wanted. The proposed designs were always beautiful but to keep within my overall budget was difficult. I think this would be my only negative concern as the original estimate (before a detail design was done) was significantly lower than any of the designs that were proposed. We moved forward with the work even though it was above my original budget. t I would have appreciated an early estimate that was either more realistic or designs that kept within the original budget. However, the end product was definitely stunning, incorporated my original design wants and is something I'm definitely proud of. If you look at their website you can see that their designs don't look like your grandma's front yard.

Construction:
Peter's crew started exactly when he said they would and they were able to get all of the work done in a week. My neighbors even commented on how efficiently they worked and how polite they were. They not only kept my yard neat during the construction they also made sure that at the end of the day the entire surrounding area/street was cleaned up as well. I've never seen contractors like this who start so early and finish so late all in the effort to get a job done on time even after encountering a couple hiccups during the work. If all contractors could be this efficient you'd have nothing to complain about.

To Summarize:
PROS:
- Great team of employees including owner, designers and construction crew
- Modern contemporary designs
- Always on time and correspondence was excellent
- Construction was super fast

CONS:
- Original preliminary estimate was significantly lower than the final proposed designs
- Effort to revise the design to bring it down to my original budget were difficult
