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

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 .

Excellent Results

We hired Whitwell Landscaping to install a stone staircase and renovate our front yard. They did an outstanding job transforming the space within our budget and on time, despite weather delays. Joe and his team went the extra mile to make the yard look fantastic and to make sure we were pleased, which we are. Joe added his design expertise to our own ideas in a way that exceeded our expectations. He checked in with me several times to make sure we were happy with the progress and results and he followed through on his promises and kept his word. We are looking forward to enjoying a beautiful front yard for many years thanks to Whitwell Landscaping.

Exceptional Experience!

Joe and his team took my overgrown, outdated front yard and turned it into a masterpiece! Joe's vision, attention to the tiniest of details, and passion for his work made my experience trully exceptional. Joe does what he says, when he says, and is a pleasure to work with. His crew worked extremely hard on this transformation. In just five days my landscape is complete and I can't wait until spring to see it all come brilliantly to life. I'll be asking Joe to work on my back yard next!

Great service - extremely dependable

Thank you Whitwell landscaping for keeping to your word and getting the job done - against all weather and holiday season odds. In short notice you were able to help me out with a total yard prune and cleanup just in time for out of town guests arriving. This was my first time using Whitwell landscaping and definitely not my last. The place looks great! thanks Joe

Best landscaper in Atlanta!

We hired Joe Whitwell to redo our landscaping and fix a drainage issue from a hardscape another company placed. Joe and his crew were pofesional, very knowledgeable, courteous and got the job done fast. The yard looks fantastic! four neighbors have already asked me who we used. Having great customer service and doing outstanding work without cutting corners to get a job these days is a rarity in their business. I HIGHLY recommend this company and will use them for any landscaping needs in the future. Thanks Joe!

I am a Raving Fan!

Our front yard is now one of the best looking yards in the neighborhood thanks to Joe, Bill and the rest of the crew at Whitwell Landscaping! We received outstanding service through every step of the process from the original design and removal through the installation of both landscape and hardscape features. Bill was patient and focused on making my wife and I happy as we changed the original design multiple times. When Joe and his crew arrived for installation, they went above and beyond in multiple ways such as being professional, sincere and openly communicating knowledge and suggestions; showing great attention to detail; alleviating our concerns about plant location and sun/shade; adding lots of extra soil and additional shrubs; cleaning our driveway, sidewalk and hardscape areas; and finishing ahead of schedule. We could not be more pleased with the end result! In fact, we have just agreed to continue our relationship with Whitwell Landscaping by hiring them to do maintenance on our new and greatly improved yard.

Great service and product

I had a simple dead tree replacement that I needed for my front yard. Joe responded and installed in less that 2 days. He went way over and above the scope of the work as well. In addition to removing my dead trees and installing 2 top quality crape myrtles, he made sure that the soil was properly amended, added fresh pine straw around the new trees, cleaned the driveway and blew the leaves off the drive (saving me from having to do it this weekend). It is the little bit of extra effort that certainly makes Whitwell Landscaping standout from the rest. Moreover, his pricing was better than his competition. I HIGHLY recommend Joe and Whitwell Landscaping for any project. I will certainly use him in the future.

Very Knowledgeable

We had Joe and his crew remodel our backyard in early Fall and so far so good! He was very knowledgeable and came up with a plan that ultimately saved me from installing a retaining wall. I am hoping that over the years the natural approach to preventing hill erosion will work - it certainly looks nicer! Joe was able to come up with a plan and showed pictures of the plants he would be using. The results look almost identical to the plan and the price was very reasonable. Would highly recommend Joe and hope to use him again!

Go with Whitwell: You will be so happy you did!

I found Joe from Kudzu and was so happy I did. After meeting with Joe, we gave him complete freedom to re-landscape several areas around my house. In less than a week we reviewed the designs and agreed with our plan. Within a few days his team at my house to knock out the job... and they knocked it out of the park. I would and will use Joe again. The best news--- Yard of the month is in my future! One other item that impressed me with Joe, he has the equipment to do any job… he trucks had everything needed, including a kitchen sink. There is no job to big or small for Whitwell. -Eric

Very knowledgable about landscaping and design!

I know what I like but not always sure of what grows well in Georgia. Joe Whitwell was very hands on in his work and made sure we not only had our landscaping look aesthiticly nice but that it will do well in Georgia! He made suggestions that I never would have thought of and am extremely pleased with the end result! We plan to do a hard scape patio and we will definitely be calling him in the future! He says he won't rest until you are happy and he truly does mean it!

I am so Happy I can not stand it !

From the condition of my backyard I never thought it could be transformed into a European, french courtyard. Joe listened to my hearts desire and transformed my unfinished rough yard into a place that is beautiful, charming and unique This area was never used and now has become a focal point for our family and entertaining. Joe is all about craftmanship, quality work, integrity and wrote the book on client satisfaction. His amazing crew completed this work of art on schedule and without delay. Joe does more than go the extra mile he focused on my happiness not just basic satisfaction.

Outstanding Service!

We are so happy that we chose Joe and his team for our landscaping project. After receiving 3 other estimates, we selected Whitwell Landscaping because of Joe's vision for landscaping our front and back yard. The completed project far surpassed our expectations. Joe and his team did an excellent job in bringing the plan to reality, without a hitch. We are truly pleased with the final product and we would definitely hire Whitwell Landscaping for any future landscape projects. Joe's crew had an outstanding work ethic and they were very conscientious in keeping the property clean at the end of each day. Joe performed a final inspection with us to make certain that we were satisfied with the completed project. Joe's professionalism and outstanding customer service helped to confirm that we made the right choice in choosing Whitwell Landscaping. Thanks Joe & team for a job well done!!

dependable

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.

Expanded Driveway and Retaining Wall

Joe and his crew did an amazing job landscaping my parents front yard in St. Ives Country Club, so we knew we were in good hands when we decided to expand our driveway and put up a retaining wall (to accommodate a new basketball hoop). My husband had met with several different landscaping companies before we moved forward with the project, and Whitwell Landscaping was, by far, the most detail oriented. Joe's pricing was extremely competitive with the other quotes we had received, but it was his vision and expertise that sold us on hiring him for the job. Our retaining wall is made out of stone and Joe and his crew carefully measured and then hammered out each piece so that no two pieces were the same. The expanded driveway is smooth and ties in nicely with the existing section. After they were done working for the night, they always made sure that their tools and material were packed up and put away. You would never have known that they had been working in front of our house the entire day. We have received so many compliments on the entire project that it makes my husband and I extremely happy that we invested the money to have this done. I would recommend Whitwell Landscaping to anyone!!!

Great Service! Great Company!

I had Joe install 3000 sq ft of sod over an irregular surface with drainage issues. Joe did a great job leveling the area to a near flat surface and installed a French drain to fix the drainage issue. I had a few strips of sod that did not take and Joe is coming out to replace. His prices are competitive and he stands by his work. I am happy with new lawn and will use Whitwell in the future.
