In late winter, my husband and I began looking for someone to create an overall landscape plan. After several estimates, we were most impressed with Brendan Smith and his ideas and the cost was... comparable to the other estimates. Brendan created the initial plan and worked with us on minor changes. We got several estimates on installation of the plan and, again, choose C&M. Our project was a large undertaking including tear out of existing plants, removal of large ivy beds , redesigned beds to cut down on the amount of lawn, and hardscape. The lot slopes down to the backyard and had no safe access from the front to the back. Since we are older, slippery grass and a fall could be traumatic. Brendan designed a stairway and retaining wall with wide comfortable steps that make a graceful transition to the back yard. The work done by his crew was high quality from the tear out to the hardscape of the steps and walls. The attention to detail on the installation of the steps and walls was second to none, from creating the correct footings to ensuring everything was level. We had a beautiful Japanese maple that had been planted in the wrong place and had outgrown its location. Brendan was the only one who wanted to move the tree instead of removing it and they did so...very successfully. We also discovered drainage issues that had to be addressed. Brendan worked with us to change the plan so we could stay within budget. The entire crew was pleasant and professional.VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »
I've given five-star ratings only twice before, but feel I have to this time, too. I paid the refundable consulting fee to Michael Staley to evaluate our front yard unpermitted retaining wall and to... estimate costs to tear it down, reestablish yard slope, and seed. I was surprised and pleased that he was so knowledgeable and considerate of our need to keep costs down because we were sick about having to do this to sell our house next year. When it started raining and I emailed that they should put up silt fencing, the job was done within hours. His crew tore the wall down and hauled masonry away in 2 work days, and sloped the yard for grass in another. Because he was able to use some of our dirt on another of his projects, he saved us thousands on landfill costs and didn't hesitate to pass the savings on to us, a rarity with Contractors. Because we'd save so much, we decided to sod instead of seed, one more day's work, and still ended up below his original estimate. If we had only found him to build the retaining wall years ago, we wouldn't have had to tear it down now. He kept our future home sale always in mind and acted in our best interests the entire time.VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »

C&M recently completed a backyard project for us including planning and installation of a landscape timber outlined, mulch-filled play area for my sonís swing set, which was on a slight downgrade. Additionally, they created two new pine straw beds and planted several new shrubs in an area where we could not grow grass properly. They planning with Denise was very helpful as she created a design that worked for us from a cost perspective and also improved the overall look of our backyard. We were also happy with the dialogue and service from both Carl and Michael. We were so impressed with C&M that we will most definitely use them for our next outdoor project. I would highly recommend C&M.

New to the area, couldn't get anyone to give me a contractor lead for a driveway, irrigation, and electrical work. Finally I overheard someone mention CM Residential Services. I called and Carl, the office mgr took all my information and set a time for me to meet with Michael, the owner. He was on time. AND as fate would have it, my water main to irrigation connection ruptured. He turned off the water at the main and one of the irrigation techs came by to seal things off so we could have water. The driveway was done in 2 days and perfect! The irrigation was reconnected and all sprinkler heads checked, replaced a couple, and set up all zones for maximum efficiency! CM Residential Services is AWESOME!!! I HIGHLY recommend them for ANY work you need done around your home!! THEY ROCK!!!

C&M did a great job for us. They significantly improved a drainage problem that we had, and did a wonderful job spreading pine straw, trimming trees, and improving the overall look of our property. We were so impressed that we hired them for the ongoing maintenance of our lawn.

My husband and I had an appt w/ Brendan Smith (sp) at 4 pm on Monday March 26 . My husband left work early to be home at 4:00 but Brendan never showed up. We did not receive a call from them to cancel the appt. Very disappointing considering all of the positive reviews I read about them. Our time is valuable and I felt this showed a lack of respect for their (potential) customers. I will not use this company in the future.

We did make an error on this appointment. Our office manager talked to this customer and set the appointment but then errantly did not send the email to Brendan with the calendar commitment. Therefore Brendan did not show up becuase he had no idea he was committed. However there were 3 people in our offices after 5 including myself who was here until almost 8 as this is a very busy season. Had this customer picked up the phone and called us, I would have gone to see them myself as soon as I could have gotten there. We do make this mistake once in a while especially in hectic seasons. We keep a joint calendar and so all of the appointments set by the office and the rest of the management team are emailed back and forth and saved so that we all know where each of us is committed all the time. We are always anxious to make up for our shortcomings and this potential customer is welcome to call or email me at email@example.com. I will be more than happy to make myself avaialble at their convenience and consult them myself in an effort to make up for our mistake. Michael C. Staley, President.
Excellent presentation by salesman, very poor service. Came when I wasn't home to supervise as requested, left 4 big piles of debris on sidewalk & pine island, completely unexpected when they were being considered for monthly maintenance work.

As always, we try to make and keep every customer happy. We find that there is almost always a way to do so. Firstly we told this customer a tentative schedule for the work and talked to the spouse the morning of the work. When performing clean up work as this particular customer hired us to do, there are simply rates for the services involved that conflict with the customers budget from time to time. Our paperwork is very clear on what the ESTIMATE includes and in this case we have ended up with review saying we were a huge disappointment when we did did a very good job of the work that was specified on the paperwork. We would have been more than happy to perform additional work however additional charges would have applied and that was the real issue. I will gladly make myself available to discuss if desired. firstname.lastname@example.org
I hired C&M to re-surface my deck and railing - and they did a fantastic job at a good price. What set them apart, though, was their service. 6 months after they stained the deck, I noticed that it was peeling in spots. When I brought it up to them, they came right out and checked on it. Rather than just dropping it, they worked with me (and the stain manufacturer) to get it remedied. A lot of contractors would have left me on my own. Thanks C&M.

We were extremely pleased with the total experience involving a lawn installation by C&M Residential. Denise did a superb job of communicating requiremnts/expectations and the office staff was very responsive. The installation crew led by Ivan was exceptional. Well done by all!

First of all, I wanted to have a major yard clean up done in the back yard. I contacted three other companies and had them come out to give me estimates. Everyone who came out was totally unprofessional in the way they were dressed and the way they spoke. None of them could give me a clear idea of how many hours the job would take and how costly it would be. I had wanted to use a local company to give business back to the community which would help the local economy, however, I was pretty fed up! When the gentleman from C&M Residential Services, Inc. came out, he was dressed professionally in clean khakis and a polo type shirt and was carrying a clipboard to take notes. He took his time walking around the yard with me. He asked me what I wanted done and then at the end, he told me that he'd email me an estimate that evening.They weren't the cheapest company, but I got the quality of work I was after. I thought they did such good job, I'm now on their monthly maintenance plan. At the end of the month, I am always given the option for them to do more work. They provide a written out quote I can go over on my own time and make a sound decision. They are very responsive. When they say they'll be there at a certain time, they are there. And when they say they'll get something done, they'll do it. Also, if there's ever something they're not sure of, they'll ask me before they start work on it, even if it means calling me if I'm not there. I am totally satisfied with this company. It's been a very long time since I've been completely satisfied with a service company! I'd highly, highly recommend their services to anybody!

From beginning to end, C&M was professional. The cost was exactly what we expected. The finished product was beautiful. We plan to call C&M again in the future for all of our landscaping needs.

My experience with C&M Residential Services, Inc. has very positive. They were very upfront, and they involved me in the process of designing what I wanted for my house. C&M Residential Services posed different options for what I wanted done so I didn't feel like I was stuck to one option. I've been a customer of C&M Residential Services for fifteen years. I've continued to use them because of their quality, professionalism, and ongoing relationship with them. I would tell a potential customer that if you want quality work done in a timely fashion, C&M Residential Services is the company to go with. Even if there is a few dollars' difference (I'm not sure if there even would be), I'd go with C&M Residential Services!Eddie Cook

C & M Residential recently re-did our patio, front sidewalk, and driveway apron. We could not be more pleased with both the outcome AND the service provided. From our first contact with Jason, through Michael, and then waving a sad goodbye to Tony and crew, we were treated with an equal amount of professionalism and family-like service at all levels. The results of their design and implementation are stunning. The walk-way to the house is inviting and interesting as it winds toward the front door. The patio of pavers is beautiful Ė surrounded by the perfect blend of easy care bushes and plantings - we look so forward to enjoying the variety of colors as the seasons progress. C & M is a top notch professional and friendly company and we HIGHLY recommend them to anyone! Thanks C & M!!!!

C&M fixed some severe problems we had with backyard drainage. They put in professional drains, regraded, designed and installed steps, paths, sod, and plants. Here's what made them a firm I recommend and would do more work with: Their designer, Denise, provided solutions I would never have considered, their crews showed up when they said they would, Denise and crew responded to my questions promptly, their crew was professional, clean & patient, and they got the job done in 6 days. Fantastic company!!!

I had a wonderful experience working with C&M Residential. They were very prompt in scheduling an appointment so that we could discuss my backyard renovation needs. I live in a small town home and my backyard is only about 400 sqft, so I was looking for a nice stone paver patio with a short retaining wall. My land was also not level so I was going to need some fill and some grading with careful consideration to drainage. I did not want to spend a fortune in such a small area, but I wanted it to look great. C&M worked perfectly with my budget and the results definitely look like I spent at least twice what I did. After some weather delays the work started promptly. They brought in professional equipment to move the bricks and fill which made the work go much faster. In only 3 1/2 days I had a filled in backyard with a beautifully design stone patio. The short retaining wall is perfect to use as additional seating around the yard. When they left, they also cleaned up and it was like they weren't even there. My patio drains absolutely perfectly with the rain flowing away from my house and into the drain.In a town home community where only a few have finished backyards I am definitely the envy of many of my neighbors. Our backyard is like another room in our house now that we use for BBQ'ing and entertaining. I couldn't recommend C&M more. You will not be disappointed.

During the first week of August, C&M Residential did a terrific job redoing the landscaping in both my front yard as well as my back yard. The landscaping was looking very tired, plus I had areas were the grass would not grow due to the trees. Denise and her crew put a plan together and now my yard looks very nice. Tony also installed a nice stone walkway which is great. I can now enjoy my property a lot more because of the very good work they performed.
