Great Work. Highly Recommend, 7/24/2014

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

Great work and great service

Joe and his crew fixed some significant drainage and erosion issues on our property. He approached this with a longterm strategy to prevent this from reoccuring. They addressed the drainage issues and did some landscaping work - but went beyond mearly fixing the issue, they put considerable issue to the aestheic details which made the yard look great. They also utilized some extra materials to make the yard look extra special.

Great Job!!

Hired Whitwell to remove a 15 year old river birch tree next to our house. Joe and his team did a great job removing the tree, grinding the stump and cleaning up. I will definitely recommend Whitwell to neighbors.

From drabs to grass

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!!!

Happy client!

We had a significant amount of work to be done on our property. A drainage issue, removal of overgrown shrubs, sod replacement and some landscaping that required a professional company. Whitwell Landscaping was the right choice. Joe and his crew did a great job and exceeded our expectations! I would highly recommend Whitwell Landscaping .

Just awesome!!!!

I had Whitewell out to do a job for our house. I was really impressed. They took the time to really understand what we wanted and what we were willing to spend and put something together that was just that. I can't say they were cheap, but I wasn't looking for cheapest...I was looking for great results and a good value. Their clean up was fantastic. We added some plants at the last minute and it was no problem. They even fixed a irrigation break they didn't cause. Use them.

Above and Beyond!!!

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!

Exceeded Expectations

First of all, Joe's bid was very competitive (especially after seeing all the work that went into our job). Then we sat down and discussed exactly what we wanted, then the work started. The end product captured our highest expectations---we couldn't be happier! Thanks Joe.

Welcome Home Surprise

Joe was highly recommended to me by coworkers. He gave me a great quote and detailed each line item which allowed to me to stay within my budget. I went out of town for spring break and came back to a beautiful newly sodded front lawn, trimmed trees and even extras that weren't in the deal. The kids now have two flattened areas to play in the back yard without trees being in the way. The family was very pleased with Joe's work.

Excellent & Honest Work

Joe and his team did an excellent job for us. We had them do a cut and fill and plant grass seed. During the process, they encountered a LOT of rock in the ground that added quite a bit of extra work. Not only did Joe stick to the original price he quoted, but he used the rocks to build a nice rock wall for us. Would highly recommend Whitwell to anyone looking for honest, quality landscape work.

Thank you Joe

Joe made a plan for the whole yard but understood that we couldn't do it all at one time. He was very accommodating about implementing, one step at a time. He even did a bit more than required to complete that first part. Thank you Joe

Consistent, Accommodating, Professional

If you are in need of any outdoor landscaping, I highly recommend Whitwell Landscaping. I have used Joe several times over the past two years From tree removal, to digging out a landing from a sloped/un-usable backyard, to completely over-hauling our front yard landscape and more. Joe is very responsive, creative and professional. His team is solid, thorough and polite. We will definitely be calling him for any future landscaping needs.

Excellent work from beginning to end

We had Whitwell Landscaping take on our overgrown front yard. They removed a four trunk river birch, evergreens, other bushes, and all the annoying surface roots which were cracking the concrete sidewalk and making the yard unusable for kids. Joe and his crew removed all this, grinded down the stumps, graded the yard properly for laying sod, and added a couple of islands with the appropriate bushes and flowers to hide utility boxes. He made sure the existing irrigation system functioned properly after digging up the yard. Joe was very flexible with our schedule and overall plan. He checked in after the work was completed to make sure we were happy. Joe is a great person to work with and his crew is very diligent.
