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.VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »
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 RobisonVIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »
I got bids on three jobs for my home - rip rap, stabilizing erosion, and some stepping stone steps. His bids were very reasonable. He listened to what I wanted, told me exactly what I needed, and didn't try to "oversell" me. Showed me pictures of options. Even though it was busy season, he showed up when said he would and his crew completed everything in one day and cleaned up afterward. I was very satisfied.

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.

Based on Kudzu reviews I called Joe, and a couple of other landscapers, last September to give me an estimate on a small patch of our front yard for landscaping work. While Joe wasn't the lowest quote, what sold me on him was his professionalism, knowledge, and ideas. He suggested a design for the work as well as what plants to use. He and the crew arrived on time, and were in and out in under 3 hours. The landscaped area looked very nice but I held off on this review to see how things survived after the winter freeze. This spring very single plant came alive and bloomed - blue aster, gold mound spirea, and chanson azalea. We didn't lose anything, and the bloodgood maple looked particularly impressive. I will definitely use Joe again.

We live in an area with a lot of elevation change. As a result, we have always struggled with water runoff; having washed our original landscape completely off a couple of times. Our builder failed repeatedly to fix the problem. I hired a landscaper who, on the first day, bogged his rented backhoe down in the mud and blew his budget. I brought Joe out and he immediately came up with solutions after evaluating from all angles. I conveyed my vision to him about mitigating the run off problems while turning a mud collection area into an area with a century old fire kettle and a place our family can enjoy. I gave Joe my budget and he came back with a scope of work that was in my budget, not 25% more like others I've dealt with. Now I will say this, don't expect Joe and his team to start work the next day. He is EXTREMELY busy, and IMO, that is good. It means people like his work, and he controls every job, not just assigning it to a crew. Joe was out everyday on my job, running the bobcat, tiller, digging, shoveling, and raking. He will work, and does not sit behind a desk. As a result, he maintains a close watch on exactly every element of the job and will jump on his crew if it isn't right. Joe did a great job of 'rerouting' the water by installing 3 dry river beds, raising my backyard by 3' and other work seen in the pics. I highly recommend Whitwell Landscaping, and I am sure to contract them over the winter for more work. 5 STARS

We hired Joe and team to fix drainage problems in the back yard, level yard and recommend and lay a shade tolerant sod. For the first time in 10 years our yard looks great!!! Job was done in 2 days, sod laid in May, now it's July and we have the greenest grass in the neighborhood! Friendly, professional, easy to work with !

Joe and his team transformed my backyard. We had Bermuda grass that would not grow because of lack of sun. He replaced it with Empire Turf and now I have a green backyard. In addition, he never complained as I continued to make changes or add additional plants to move. Thanks Joe!!!

Joe and his team are AMAZING!!! They transformed our backyard from a so-so to stunning! We met several times before deciding on just what to do in our yard. Joe came over on weekends and early in the morning to meet both of our busy schedules. He implemented his plan and touched base with us throughout the job. Our yard looks completely different and we have already had several neighbors comment on the changes and ask about joe! He went above and beyond a very fair and competitive quote and power washed our driveway and sidewalk after the job was completed. This was totally unexpected and appreciated. Thank you Joe and Whitwell landscaping!
