After we reviewed Mark's landscape plan, we contracted for the work. The office scheduled the work when we would be home so that we would have input as the work progressed.
The team leader reviewed all work with the landscape design in hand. the team then proceeded to clear the area and prepare the soil for the new plants.
Mark, our landscape designer, appeared, marked the area for planting, and placed every plant. He remained on site until he was satisfied that all the plants were placed per his design.
The team finished the planting, mulched the bed, and cleaned up the area.
But before they finished the job, Mark returned and checked all the work, then asked us if the work was acceptable, before the team was released.Then Mark reviewed the tasked we would need to perform the next few days to ensure that the plants took hold and grew well. He also informed us that he would stop by to check on the progress of the plantings in a few days and in a week or two.
To end the project, Mark called about three weeks after the work was done to ask how we liked the plants and the work.
Take Away: One of the best landscape designers and implementation teams we have worked with plants were larger and in much better condition than any other company every delivered work was well planned, executed with our input and following the plan supervision by the designer was far more complete than ever experienced before.
Bottom Line - THESE PEOPLE know what they are doing and do a fantastic job.

I hope all is well with you and your family. Debbie and I are finally totally settled in our WV place so I wanted to take a moment to thank you and Kingstowne Landscaping for all the excellent work you provided us over the past several years.
I am absolutely certain that the landscaping and hardscaping design and installation that you and your team performed on our Hayfield residence made it possible for us to sell it in a very timely manner and for an excellent price. While the house was very nice on the inside, it was the impressive curb appeal that got so many potential buyers in the door and allowed us to sell it so quickly in a down market.
In fact, Debbie and I received innumerable unsolicited comments from people passing by on the outstanding appearance and design of your work.....we even saw folks stopping to take pictures of it. Once the "For Sale" sign went up, we had dozens of folks go through the house within the first week and got several offers. I have you guys to thanks for that.
Also I want to personally thank you for the assisting me with the last-minute issues that needed to be taking care of before closing. Your response to my problem was fast, thorough, and professional.....and you got it all done within my unreasonable time requirements. It was greatly appreciated.
Take care and I wish you the best luck in the future. You were a pleasure to work with.

They come out to do the treatments, which include seeding, weed prevention, fertilization, and aeration. I’ve used them for years. They’re nice people to work with, are reliable, and do a good job. When they’re coming out to do a bigger job, they usually give me a heads up to prepare the lawn (mowing). They’ve been excellent and I have no complaints at all.

First, let me thank you for everything you did. The obstacles that you encountered could not have been forecasted. Besides the work performed, which was, in my opinion, far superior to what we have previously experienced, the integrity of you and your company is totally unparalleled within your industry. The uncompromising dedication of you and your employees will long be remembered, not only within the Howard household, but in our neighborhood as well. We actually need more business cards as we are running out. People actually knock at our door and request who did the work.

This is to let you know that Pat and I are VERY, VERY pleased with the brickwork that your company recently did for us. You put in a brick walkway on a concrete base and you bricked our existing concrete porch. Your men started on the date promised and worked steadily and skillfully toward completing the project. Neighbors and friends have praised the job. Feel free to send prospective customers to view it. It was also a pleasure working with you personally.
Pat and Ben R. (Alexandria, Virginia)
The patio looks great! Thank you to you and the company for the professional and superior quality workmanship. I look forward to years ahead of doing business with Kingstowne Lawn & Landscape and of telling all my friends and neighbors how wonderful you are.
Pat K. (Alexandria, Virginia)
Just wanted to thank you and your crew for the fantastic job you have done on our lawn. It has NEVER looked better. The company I had prior to you had called me repeatedly about signing back on with them last year. I told them no way, and I know they have seen my yard since I have been with your company.
Pam H. (Alexandria, Virginia)
I want to thank you for my beautiful front yard! Both Joe and I are really pleased, and are enjoying it very much. It is so nice to be rid of the "sparse grass, no character" look, and we really like the sidewalk. Sure makes getting in and out of the Jeep a breeze.
I cannot say enough good things about Marvin. He has excellent people skills and provided outstanding customer service. He and his crew did a great job and I would not hesitate to request him and his crew for another project.
And again thank you for designing such a great landscape plan for us, and for sending a great crew to put it in.
Carol & Joe D. (Alexandria, Virginia)
We want to thank you and your amazing landscaping crews for the outstanding job they have done on our property. When we look at pictures of our yard before you began the work, it is so hard to believe the transformation that has taken place and how the design your team developed for us has come to life. It seems as if we are in a brand new house. Our neighbors have complimented us constantly on the work, some even sheepishly admitting they gave themselves a guided tour around the yard. One afternoon a car sat in our driveway with a neighbor from the next block admiring the new landscaping.
We also want to thank you for your unbelievable patience and time with us, especially when returning our calls in the same day to answer our many questions and concerns as we moved forward on this project. Your professionalism is unquestionable and your knowledge of even minor details related to the work you do still shocks us, even though we thought we could stump you on a couple of things.
Thank you again for transforming our once-sad piece of property into one that we can show off with pride, and we look forward to continuing our business relationship with your company in the years to come.
Dan and Jessica Q. (Lake Ridge, Virginia)
I want to thank you and your crew for the beautiful new landscape in our backyard. I can’t wait for the new plantings to grow and add even more to the finished project. Your professionalism and expertise in designing the new look has put a smile on my face each time I look out from our deck. We were amazed at the devotion your men had to accomplish the job, and never even stopping for coffee that we offered them. The elements were not too kind to them. Thank you so much for everything and I look forward to having you beautify my plant beds in the spring.
