Custer Reviews and Testimonials – Boston Landscaper Co.
Thank you again for everything!
Yes, a drawing! He could ‘see’ certain plants here, perennials there, this type of a flow in the new grass, how to draw interest to the
front door without changing anything. This company planned and installed with out questions.
For years, the yard was my joy! I always took time and patience to grow the perennials and different plants. But once we had the masonry work completed it was beyond me. There were stones, dust, the lawn dead in spots, grown like craxy in others. IT WAS A DISASTER! Boston Landscaping showed up on time with at least 4 guys and all sorts of equipment. Steve reviewed what we wanted and gave the ok. Then it happened! My entire front yard was getting ripped up. I just stood there and watched – just slowly shakin my head. But when they finished – the sod, the plants, the perennials – the WOW factor came into play. All along Steve kept telling to ‘see’ how everything would look; I just didn’t. Now I stand in front of the house and receive all sorts of compliments. It is unbelievable! My house has changed completely! Steve came picked up his cheek , shook hands and we both admired the job. I then spoke to him about a couple of saplings.
BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE!
Somehow a fire truck had to park and drive over the brand new lawn leaving a huge mess. I called Boston asking for assistance what to do. The next day Steve sent down a guy who came with sod and repaired the mess. A simple phone call did all this!!!! Yeah, if you think I’m happy with Boston – you guessed correctly !!!!!!!
Steve, the owner, was professional, prompt and attentive from the initial consultation through the last day of work. He visited the site several times while the work was in progress to personally oversee the job. The heavy rains caused the work to be delayed several times, but Steve always made sure to explain how they would work around it (great communication). The crew for the landscaping and the walkway/patio were all really nice, courteous and cleaned up really well – and they also asked questions to confirm what was to be done rather than have to fix mistakes after the fact. We’ll likely have more work to do in the spring and Boston Landscaping will be the first ones I call.
We had massively overgrown bushes that took up over half of the front yard. Steve and his crew came in and removed everything and grinded up the stumps in 1 day. Very impressed with how quickly they worked and how much better the yard looked afterwards. We next worked with Steve’s Landscape designer, Ginny and she came up with a beautiful design. Both Steve and Ginny were able to work with our modest budget and still create a design that we love. We definitely don’t feel that we are missing anything. I got a few estimates on both the shrub removal and landscape installation. Boston Landscape was similarly priced to other (well reviewed) landscapers but he was the only one who responded quickly and seemed very willing to work with our budget; giving us advice on doing the installation in multiple phases, purchasing plants in late summer/early fall. I really appreciated his desire to want to work with us and understanding our budget limitations. Plus his work is beautiful and his crew is exceptionally nice. We will definitely be using him again!
Steve and his team were excellent to work with. They were prompt, very hard-working, responsive to our questions and concerns, and thorough from start to finish. Steve’s first visit with us was to discuss what we wanted done. He listened to us and gave us his recommendations. He priced out everything separately as we asked and did not give us any problems when we had to cut some items from the list due to the cost. He worked with us with regards to the price and, although it was still a lot of money, he came down to within the same ballpark as the other landscapers we had price the job.
We chose Steve for the job because he was willing to work with us, we felt he was being honest with us, and we could tell he knew what he was talking about. He and his team did not disappoint on any level. They arrived when they said they would, they put in a full day’s work and they cleaned up at the end of each day. We have had many complements on our much improved curb appeal.
The company he used to install the sprinkler system was excellent as well. Until the system is running for a bit, you don’t know what kinks may still exist. Whenever we called, they called back immediately and were out very quickly to check out the problem. After a few adjustments, the sprinkler system ran perfectly. They just recently came back to blow out the system for the winter.
After the positive experience we had with Steve and his crew, we decided to have them take care of the property throughout the season and they have done a good job on that as well. We still have some patchy grass issues but that isn’t through any fault of Steve’s, and he has been working to correct the situation.
We highly recommended Boston Landscaping.
This has to be the best service I have ever had for snow removal and the staff in Wakefield have definitely noticed the difference.
I have been using Boston Landscape Co. for the past 14 years to handle all of my residential landscaping and they continue to do a great job on my yard. This week the landscape crew cleaned up all my leaves and left my lawn looking good for the fall.
A few weeks ago they trimmed my trees and shrubs and prepared them for winter. I can’t say enough about Steve and the landscapers at Boston Landscape. I highly recommend them..
worked on the lawn. For just a hair over $2000 Boston Landscaping did major pruning of the massive trees in our yard, cutting in the
yard (border) our entire lawn front and back, mulching (a lot of mulch) weeding the entire front and back lawn, trimming all the hedgings and hemlocks that line the entire back yard, and general clean up (raking, sweeping). My yard not only looked twice the size once it’s was done but looked brand new. I’ve since had them back for a basic clean up (trim hedges, weed, and sweep) and it only cost me $265. I couldn’t have been happier with the results. They have a customer for life.
Steve is a super nice guy to deal with. He arrived for the initial consultation on time and brainstormed with me about what I could expect to get done within my budget. We also talked about ideas for future larger projects. Steve looked at the trees and shrubs on my lot and mentioned that I have a problem brewing that would require remediation by a tree specialist. He also noticed the carpenter ants around the property and advised me to get an exterminator. Steve and his crew arrived on the scheduled day to begin the work. He had asked me to leave 1/2 of the money, which I did. I was so amazed when I returned home from work that evening to see the total transformation in my yard! It looked jaw-droppimgly different and infinitely better than it had when I left for work that morning! I emailed Steve to thank him and he replied that they would be back a few days later to trim the large Japanes maple. To be honest, I didn’t even notice that it wasn’t done. But Steve and his crew came back and finished the job. I am still immensely pleased with yard each time I drive up the road. Now I just need to save a little more money and hire Steve back for a few other projects I would like to tackle! I can’t wait to work with Steve again!
You took what we thought was an impossible side yard full of dirt, rocks, and major tree root systems and turned it into a beautifully landscaped patio area we can’t wait to get home to each day. The guys were very neat and courteous while at our house and always kept us informed each step of the way. When I would come home from work and they were still here you could tell how much they love their job because they were always ready to show us the progress. You completed everything in within the same time frame and budget that you had estimated when we first spoke which is always a plus. We truly appreciate the creative design and hard work you put into our project without you guys it would still be a pile of dirt! I personally appreciated that you always answered all my questions and never had a doubt about how nice it would turn out.
We will certainly recommend your team to anyone and everyone we can.
Thank you again for everything!
