Bruce started our first project in 2001. He turned our entire yard into a beautiful and functional space that still remains pristine. This spring, Bruce and Wayne replaced my back deck with the highest quality work. I tripled the size of it and their creative ideas, attention to detail, unparalleled quality and professionalism prevailed again. They even built it with the foresight of adding a screen porch next year. That way nothing done now would be wasted for the next step. I trust Bruce and Wayne with any project. I would never go to anyone else. Finally a company that has pride in their work and respects the customer. Thanks guys! I really appreciate your integrity and my new back porch.

I am so thankful that my husband found Bruce. We have a toddler and two dogs and had a mess of a backyard. We needed some major clean up done (tree limbs from clearing out trees, etc.) and really needed a fence for the dogs. Bruce was able to come up with great ideas to make our backyard not only beautiful but also usable and functional. He even took the time to drive around Roswell with me to show me the fence he wanted to build for us to make sure I was comfortable with it. Bruce and Wayne built a gorgeous fence for us that provides us with exactly what we needed. The neighbors have all told us they love it too. On top of building an amazing fence, Bruce landscaped our yard and gave it a sense of place that it was definitely lacking before his magic touch. He is man of his word and very trustworthy. My husband and I are hoping to be able to use him for landscaping and also remodeling in the future. Five stars all the way!

The Christmans metamorphosed our backyard from an embarrassing muddy hole into a stunning shady oasis. They listened to what we wanted and came up with some truly creative ideas. They're talented, creative, honest, and their work exudes quality.

Our first project with Bruce was in Oct 2006. They did a complete renovation of our backyard. The project included multiple retaining walls, paver patio, sprinkler system, grading, etc. They did an amazing job and we were very pleased with all aspects of the project. In March 2010, I called Bruce again for phase 2 of the backyard. As we were finalizing the details of the backyard project, I mentioned to him that we were also getting ready to renovate our master bathroom. He said he could help us out and had all the skills needed to complete the project. I was getting ready to hire 4 different contractors for the bathroom and Bruce said he and his son could do it all. I didn't hesitate and gave Bruce the business. I knew from past experience that he would do a great job. The project finished up recently and they did do a great job. It far exceeded our expectations. The bathroom looks great and my wife and I couldn't be happier. Bruce and Michael are true craftsman and very resourceful. They take a lot of pride in their work, go to great lengths to make a customer happy and communicate extremely well. I would recommend them to anyone.

Bruce and Michael should be known as miracle workers instead of landscapers. What they did to transform our yard is nothing short of amazing. They took what was a pretty junky yard and turned it into a work of art and a place you would love to live because of the yard. This work was done for a rental property we have decided to sell. I firmly believe that if the house sells in this market, it will be due to the magnificent job Christman Landscaping did. I cannot recommend them enough and if I could give them 50 stars, I would.

Bruce & Michael did a wonderful job in our backyard installing a sprinkler system and sod. They were able to break backyard landscape down into manageable projects for us to tackle. They were diligent and careful with the existing landscape. They were always on time. We enjoyed working with them and look forward to more projects.

Bruce and Michael completely transformed my backyard with creative hardscapes. I would recommend them to anyone. They were diligent in completing the job, did what they said they would, and even a little more, always kept the yard clean while they work. Thanks for great back yard. Pete B.

We have worked with Bruce Christman and his son, Michael, for over 10 years as we have transformed our house to a "home". We first met him with a simple project- a retaining wall. Since then he has built our fence, enlarged our deck, built a waterfall, down our landscaping and now our masterbath. Bruce and Michael are talented, hardworking and creative. They are the "best of the best". If Bruce says he can do it--he can.

Bruce & his son, Michael, transformed our very boring and basic backyard into an amazing, beautiful and elegant RETREAT--the kind most people only dream about :-)!! We talked with Bruce at length about what was important to us and Voila!...he came up with a detailed backyard plan. He really is a creative genius! During the implementing phase, we found out that we had to re-think the second phase b/c of our neighborhood/city restrictions and he again, came up with a great solution that had all the same elements as the first plan. Bruce made sure that our yard was pleasing from every angle. He is so skilled at what he does, and is quite the problem solver for anything that arises along the way. He created the most amazing pondless water feature! Ours is so BEAUTIFUL & 'natural' and far exceeded our expectations. If you want a pondless water feature, he's your guy!!! Also, he built a beautiful deck and pergola for us---created wonderful one-of-a-kind details for the pergola. Everything that was done was done with care and with high-quality work. When he does something, he does it right!! He is also very knowledgeable about plants as well and cleans up the job site so nicely each day/evening. (And if you have animals, he's very kind and looks out for their interests too.) Thank you Bruce and Micheal for all of your hard work and for helping to create 'our own little natural wonder of the world'. --Mel/Alpharetta/Johns Creek, GA

When we decided to finally make our backyard usuable we spoke to several people and Bruce took the time to come out and meet with us several times, to really understand what we were trying to do. (In fact he was the only one that actually drew us a plan and send it to us while we were still in the decision making phase) We actually changed most of our initial design after meeting with him because he really understood what we wanted and designed something around that. Since we both work nobody was home while most of the work was being done but he uploaded pictures of the daily activity night and also send us an e-mail summarizing what happend that day and what would be happening the next day. This was great because we really felt we were part of the process and even when we were on vacation for a week in the middle of the project we were able to check out the progress from overseas. We also loved that he was the one (along with Mike) to do all the work so we felt super comfortable with him having access to our property. The results have surpassed any of our expectations and we are now the envy of the neighborhood with our yard. We never used to go out in our yard and now that is all the kids want to do when we get home. Front yard will be done next year and we will definitely use Christman landscaping again :-)

Bruce and son Michael performed wonders on our backyard. We thought we knew what we wanted and then Bruce showed us the way.... Bruce is one of the most creative people I have met - and the work he does is incomparable to anything I have seen before. Reliable and dependable, fair, dedicated, passionate - these are all the typical words that describe a person who is great at his craft and takes pride in his work. Bruce is all of that and more - for Bruce is not just "Cody the Landscaper" - Bruce is a landscape (and hardscape!) artist. He gets to know his customers and designs what they need. The best part about Bruce and Michael - is that they are just good people. In this day - it is hard to find good people who work hard and want to treat people right. They were a pleasure and a gift to our family. They work harder than anyI have seen. We are planning our next project - just to have them back. If you are on the fence about what to do - jump on over to the Christman Landscaping side. He will not disappoint!

Bruce Christman is not just a landscaper; he is an outdoor artist. Bruce envisioned what the front of my house could look like, and he and his equally skilled son Michael brought that vision to life. They completely removed a badly cracked concrete walkway and demolished all but the inner core of a poorly constructed stoop. What stands there now are a beautiful stoop and walkway made of brick pavers; you can see a video of the entire process on his website. Bruce is a true professional who stays in touch throughout the project and who flexes around any unforseen difficulties. Michael and he do not leave a job site until it meets their exacting standards. I am grateful to Kudzu.com for enabling me to find a small family business with such huge talent.

For years one of my neighbors has been telling me about work that "his" landscaper was doing to his house or yard. So when we needed to have our broken-down brick steps and cracked sidewalk repaired at the front of our house, I asked my neighbor for "his" landscaper's name and phone number. Bruce Christman did a fantastic job repairing the broken steps without having to tear everything out and then replaced the cracked sidewalk with an absolutely gorgeous patterned brick. He also took care of moving several trees that were planted in the wrong spots. The front of the house and the entry up the front steps now looks absolutely marvelous and I make a point of looking out at it every day. Bruce's eye for landscape design is superior and his approach to the job is outstanding. I'm happy to call him "my" landscaper now!

Bruce Christman is a great landscaper. He did a variety of work in our yard including completely redoing our front landscaping. He is very knowledgeable, has a good eye for landscape planning and has a great work ethic. Plus, he provides superiour customer service -- he has integrity, is personable and worked within our budget constraints. He follows up with his customers even after work is completed. I'd highly recommend him. Mark/Alpharetta, GA
