Called Whitwell Landscaping to completely replace a fescue lawn that was riddled with fungus and a victim to a changing sunlight patterns due to canopy growth. Joe showed up when he said he would and delivered a complete quote within a few days. Work is now complete and I am very pleased with the result and with his attention to my concerns and to job details. Joe's team slogged through some really awful weather conditions as we experienced two unexpected monsoon-like rains right in the middle of the project that turned the project area into a bog! The guys worked hard, were careful and worked around the bog conditions to get a good result. Irrigation system components were replaced if damaged (Some piping locations were unknown) and the guys returned today to replace some sod squares that suffered from too much pallet time due to the huge rains. My thanks to Joe for being good to work with and to Eric and his install team for their diligent work in the face of tough conditions! Very pleased with the end result. Thanks!

Our back yard was literally eroding away. Joe Whitwell brought in several tons of dirt, leveled the yard, created a dry river bed, and re-sodded everything. I now have a yard a can use and enjoy looking at.

We have a sloped backyard that has had serious drainage issues for years. Between the drainage issues and shade from overgrown leyland cypress trees, we have not been able to grow grass consistently despite multiple re-sodding efforts. Joe helped us put together an excellent plan to resolve everything and completely re-did our backyard. This entailed removal of nine trees, installation of a beautiful dry riverbed, complete regrading of the backyard and new zoysia sod. I talked to five different contractors and no one came close to Joe's expertise and confidence in being able to resolve our issues. He was great to work with - patient with all of my questions, was in constant communication with us and spent a lot of time on site and flexible in working with us as we were also having the outside of our house painted. And I can't say enough about his team - very hardworking, always on-time, very professional and did a great job cleaning up after the project was done. I won't go anywhere else for landscaping work. Thanks Joe!

We have a flat yard so major drainage issues whenever there's significant rain. Joe recommended the Flo Well system, installed the basins, re-routed the gutters to it as well, and put in all new grass. Him and his team were knowledgeable, hardworking, on-time and easy to work with. I especially appreciated Joe's attention to detail. I highly recommend Whitwell Landscaping!
Installed Flo Well System, piping to connect gutters to Flo Well, trim trees and installed 3000 sq. ft. Bermuda grass.

I contacted Joe and his team to fix a serious drainage issue in my front yard. He was very responsive to my initial request, developed a great and reasonably priced plan to solve the issue, and even acted as my advocate to accelerate the HOA approval process. As soon as I got the green light from the HOA, Joe's team began work the next day. They worked quickly, with incredible attention to detail and an eye for aesthetics, and removed 2 trees and their roots, graded my entire front yard, and installed sod, bushes and mulch all within a few days. The outcome certainly exceeded my expectations, and I'm so happy that I finally have a beautiful front yard. I will definitely use them again when I'm ready to tackle my backyard. Thanks, Joe!!

We needed help with erosion issues as our home is on a slope. Our yard was in really bad shape before Joe and his team fixed that. They created a new river bed, and planted various plants down the slope to help with erosion. He also pruned and mulched the entire yard. Joe was wonderful to work with. He came in and evaluated the yard, came up with a proposal that worked for us, and started the work immediately. Whitwell landscapers are perfectionists in everything they do. Our yard never looked the way it looks now. We are very pleased with the work done and will definitely be hiring them to do more work for us in the future.

I had a drainage problem on one side of my house. Water was going under the foundation of my ranch home causing my wood floors to crown. Joe landscaped the side of my house to allow rain water to drain to the creek in the back of my house. Excellent work! Would use Joe Whitwell again! He knew exactly what I wanted! We will be able to mow the area and did not need all those expensive french drains!! Thank you!!
Whitwell Landscaping - Joe Whitwell Redesigned the earth on the side of my house so rain water would drain to the creek in back of the house. After the job was complete they seeded/strawed the area.

The landscaping and drainage in my 13 year old yard was a wreck after the trees put in by the builder had become too large. Joe redesigned the yard, took out one tree, installed appropriate sod/bedding/plants, put in an awesome drainage system with river rock, and fixed everything. We could not be happier.

Whitwell put in a circular patio w/fire pit. Joe developed a design to meet our needs that was a cost effective solution. His crews showed up on time each day and worked the project to completion. The end result exceeded out expectations, I would not hesitate to refer Whitwell Landscape to a friend. Lynn Robison

Whitwell Landscaping exceeded my expectations! I called Joe Whitwell earlier this fall to get a quote to landscape my back yard. After meeting with Joe, he had me meet with his landscape designer, Bill, to develop a plan. I had a list of shrubs and trees that I wanted to plant but didn't know how to lay it out. Bill developed a beautiful design and after a little longer than expected wait (due to a couple of weeks of rainy weather) Joe & his team installed the trees, shrubs and perennials over several days. They did an amazing job & were well worth the wait! I am a gardener and I'm particular about how things looked. Joe was awesome about that too - always making sure I liked where everything was going. He also has an eye for detail which I appreciated. Don't hesitate to call Whitwell Landscaping. You'll be happy you did! PS - I'd like to add before & after photos but do not have access to upload them for this review on Kudzu. I'll check back later to see if that changes.

We moved into a new townhome in April 2014 with a small backyard. Though the builder tried over and over to correct it, the backyard remained a muddy, unusable mess (as were all of our neighbors). Whitwell was cocky about their ability to correct drainage issues and I really liked that. Once we came up on their schedule (took a while because they are busy), they moved pretty quickly. (It's worth waiting for them). We now have a beautiful backyard with hardscaping and plants. The guys he had do the patio and gas-fed fire pit are true craftsmen. And, he actually has a higher expectation level than I did, because when I thought something was completed and looked great, twice, he had his team redo certain things to get up to his standards. They are not inexpensive, but the quality to cost ratio is better than any other bid that we had gotten. Highly recommended. (And, not only are our drainage issues corrected, fixing ours seems to have corrected at least the next two lots drainage issues)

Whitwell Landscaping did a great job in cleaning/clearing out a large heavily wooded area in our yard. He and his team cleared all the small trees, vines and brush out, and chipped all the debris. Afterwards the area looks great and we have a beautiful view of it from our house. His price was very reasonable (as compared with some other landscapers). His team showed up on time as agreed and completed the work on schedule. One of my neighbors has already asked for his contact info. I intend to get some more one by him in the future.
