exactly what I asked for, 6/03/2015

Joe and team just did a landscape makeover for me and from design through installation the experience was 5 star. Fast, affordable, courreous, and the results I wanted. Recommended by me!


Worry free landscaping, 5/12/2015

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.

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 .

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.

Outstanding in Every Way!

We did a full backyard make-over and Joe guided us every step of the way. Extremely service-orientated, Joe was patient and accommodating as we had several changes along the way. Always "not a problem" response. His crew was honest and accommodating as well. Finished on time and on budget. Work quality top notch. Trust me, I'm a skeptic and a tough critic but Joe and his team won me over!

Outstanding Quality of Work!!!!

We chose Whitwell Landscaping to redo our deck/patio. The finished product was over and above what we could ever have expected. They took out the deck including the sidewalk and installed a paver patio and fire pit. The before and after pictures are unbelievable. Joe and his crew are very professional, friendly and very hard workers. Joe gave us a date the project would be done and even with the rain delays it was done on that day! I was also very impressed with how they left the whole area spotless when they were done. It was left immaculate. Our family has really enjoyed our new outdoor living space where we have spent many chilly nights on the beautiful patio with a nice roaring fire in the fire pit!! So glad we found Whitwell Landscaping!!!

Above and beyond!

We had a steep, ugly hill in front of our house. We really had no idea what to do with it. Joe took a look at our gardening style, I love color, not formal. The result was waves of different colors from foliage to differing bloom times. I can't wait to experience it throughout each season! He added boulders to add dimension, and also reworked shrubs and features that were already there. We LOVE the result!! Lots of compliments from neighbors and friends. Joe and his crew were great to work with and I have already given out his number a few times :-)

Best of the Best

Joe Whitwell and his team did an excellent job on our front yard. They were timely, efficient and professional. I received exactly what I wanted and it made a huge impact in the overall appearance of our house. The curb appeal is great. We have gotten so many compliments from our neighbors! People actually stop their cars to compliment the change!

Backyard Transformation is an understatement

Joe takes alot of pride and is very hands on with all of his projects. I was very impressed by how much he cares that every project is done right rather than just getting it done. He will give you his honest opinion and will make your project the best that it can be. Our backyard was terrible and no way feasible for kids to use and he changed that in 3-4days. Cant thank him and his team enough. I would recommend him to anyone.

Worthy of your trust.

As a retired military officer, and successful multi-company real estate business owner, I have learned that your word is your bond, and your reputation is only as good as your last customer says it is. I have also learned the hard way, that few contractors comprehend this in their dealings with customers. So, I am very skeptical about hiring contractors. When I hire a contractor I simply want the work performed, as the work should be performed, nothing more. I donít want short cuts taken, or corners cut at my expense or ignorance when Iím not around to observe the work of a contractor Iíve hired first hand. Based solely on Joeís performance re-grading, re-sodding, landscaping and laying a flagstone path at our place, I can wholeheartedly, and without reservation, strongly recommend Joe Whitwell to you for all your landscape and hardscape needs. Joe is one of the few who tells you what he will do, and then actually shows up and does it to a very high standard. You never have to second guess Joe, as he has the highest professional integrity you will find in a contractor worthy of your business. Joe has a college degree, a business background and years of academic study and hands-on experience regarding all your landscaping needs. Joe was customer friendly, professionally competent, and accountable while demonstrating a great deal of personal pride in ensuring we were completely happy with his quality work. His 5 Star rating is accurate and well deserved.
