We recently looked into landscapers for our patio and lawn projects. Gary was the first one to come out to consult us... and give us an estimate. He set the bar pretty high. He is very responsive and understands the needs of the customer. He is also very knowledgeable. He knows what it takes to get the job done and to get it done right. The team he has in place are extremely good as well. There is a reason Gary and his team have stellar reviews. We saw first hand how they operate. Not only is Gary great at his trade, he is a great person as well. I would recommend Garrison’s Landscaping to anyone. If there are any hesitations, please reach out to me.read more

I hired Garrison's Landscaping to complete an overhaul of my front yard flowerbeds. I wanted one converted to a small... patio area and the other needed to have all the old shrubs removed, replaced and brick chips laid. They arrived when they said they would, confirmed the work I wanted done and completed it on time. It all looks fantastic! The crew was polite, professional, and efficient. The attention to detail makes all the difference. I would recommend Garrison's Landscaping to anyone!read more

I hired Gary and his crew to perform a fairly extensive project for me. They put in a parking pad, stone path (with... steps), minor plantings, river rock drainage and repair a brick patio. They were polite, professional, hard-working, and efficient. The price was also reasonable for the scope of work required. They finished in decent time and cleaned up well after themselves. I would highly recommend!read more

Gary and his crew just did a stepping stone and river rock walkway for us. They also spread pine needles in our bedding... areas. It all looks incredible! Gary was so easy to work with and his crew is great. Communication with him was very prompt, the work was done quickly and he took care of everything we wanted. We would highly recommend him and plan to have him back for more projects in the fall.read more

My husband post was flagged or deleted. He was so upset by this experience that he added the text messages as proof, in... response to the owners messages he received. That was a mistake so we’ll try this again and speak solely about our experience. Note to consumers as a lesson learned to us, get everything in writing. The measurements, the hardware, the placement of items within the design with detailed descriptions of every cost and warranty offered. The workers do a tremendous job and we’re happy with their work. Our issue is our contractor did not listen to us, rather he did it the way he wanted making the project take longer than was necessary. We did make changes to the length of frame at the start of the project we wanted another foot of counter space and paid additionally for this change. but the actual design of it being a “U” never changed. Our issues: 1. Drainage issues with water standing on the patio and inside the frame. We still have water sitting inside the frame. 2. We reiterated we wanted the propane tank beside the gas grill several times with an access door and offered to pay for that separately. After seeing the framing we told the contractor it did not allow for enough space for the propane tank. This caused a design change by reconfiguring the doors you bought. After seeing the doors we told your crew the propane tank didn’t fit through the door. This caused another design change, where the propane tank sits between our two charcoal grills with double doors. This was less than ideal but an option we chose to live with reluctantly. For our safety we asked for additional walls to be built around the propane tank to guard from sparks from the ash or grease. We’re still not sure this is the safest option. 3. The final straw was our concern over support for the counter top next to the gas grill where nothing was left to hold it but the door it would sit on. We asked three different granite companies when getting quotes and they shared the same slight concern. Rather than leaving it to chance we asked you to build a support to ensure it’s safety and so that it won’t sag on the door over time. We offered to pay additionally. We don’t think we were being unreasonable. As a vendor/consumer relationship this shouldn’t have been and issue but made right. 4. Finally, you referenced my son fighting leukemia as the reason you did this job at the price point you did in text messages and on the job site. That to me was disrespectful and offensive and any parent would agree. ———— 5. In the end, the craftsmanship was great, but the contractor was easily offended and difficult to work with. We wanted it done to our specifications and was left to settle rather than enjoy this experience. Now we have to hire someone else to fix our drainage issues and to make sure the counter is reinforced. We’ll add pictures of where the job was left. Feel free to contact me if additional reference is needed. We hate that it ended this way for both parties. We’ve agreed to not respond to anything he says about us as we have found and if you do further research on his business he has a common wording on any negative reviews he may receive.read more

Gary is a joy to know and work with. He has treated, plugged, and seeded our lawn for 4yrs now. Whenever I call or text... with a question or need, he typically responds in less than 2hrs. One time I had a small issue with one of his men. They accidentally missed spraying our yard that day but I still got billed. I texted Gary and he immediately called me back and was at my home in an hour making sure my yard got sprayed that afternoon. Very professional, responsive, and friendly.read more

Simply put, they do excellent work. I can easily recommend Garrison’s based on everything I had done. They were... professional, fast, communicated well, and the yard looks great. They handled a variety of projects with ease. I will absolutely be using them from now on whenever I need landscaping work. They paid attention to details, and worked really fast, accomplishing quite a few projects that I had been meaning to get to for a while. The finished look is great.read more

After receiving a couple of very high quotes from other landscape companies for sod and irrigation, one of our friends... referred us to Gary. He was quick to reply and came out the next day to look at our home. He sent a quote over within 24 hours and it was definitely more inline with our budget. His team was out the very next week and the project went smoothly. His employees were polite and professional and he was always there for any questions we had along the way. I wife and I are pleased with our yard and definitely recommend Garrison’s Landscaping.read more

Working with Gary on this landscaping/hardscape project for my backyard was truly a pleasure. The quality of work was... superb!!! I had several quotes for a 2 tier retaining wall to install in my backyard. Gary’s estimate was the most reasonable quote. It was not about the money itself, but his creativity and expertise won my trust for him to do this project. He is very professional, family oriented and passionate about this line of work. I felt very comfortable that he understood how I envisioned this backyard to look and more. His recommendations were always the right thing to do because he knows this stuff!!! He did not disappoint my expectations. The retaining walls turned out amazingly beautiful!!! He talked to me about his ideas to complete and make this a maintenance free backyard. With drainage issue, shady area (mostly moss is growing) and muddy pit area when it rains, I liked his ideas to alleviate these problems. He worked with me to try to stay in my budget and still achieved a beautiful, maintenance free backyard! They finished this project within the timeline! My backyard looks AWESOME!!! His attention to details showed perfection on every part of this project! After it was all done, they made sure the surroundings were all clean and tidy. They even laid down a quickgrass natural erosion control blanket to grow grass and prevent mud on the path where they hauled materials and heavy equipment in and out of the backyard. Overall, Garrison’s landscaping team did an exceptional job, beginning to end of the project. I’m very happy and very satisfied with their work. My dog and I love our beautiful backyard...and no more muddy paws!!! Can’t wait to work with Garrison’s Landscaping team again for future projects! Before and after pictures below. Thank you Garrison's Landscaping team! Vangie Cruzread more

Gary and his team go above and beyond my expectations every time they visit. Whether it has been grading, seeding,... trimming, mulching, or applying lawn treatments - they know what they are doing 110%. The promptness of this team is outstanding! I greatly appreciate the fact that the majority of requests are completed within a few days, if not the same day. Gary is always a phone call or text away, and he's always there for assistance long after the work has been done.read more

Gary and his team are amazing! He was also so personable! I’m a bit delayed in writing this review but I couldn’t... pass up the chance to share my experience. Gary came out provided us a quote and explained the work that needed to be completed. He was very patient in answering the questions that I had and providing solutions for my project. We had a French drain installed, our backyard graded, and mulch added to create a low maintenance yard space, back in August to help with a water issue in our basement. We had a bad experience with another company and were very apprehensive having to hire someone else to fix the other company’s shotty job. Gary’s explanations and knowledge helped to put us at ease. The job was done to perfection and has solved the water issue we had. We are so pleased that we found Garrison’s landscaping that we also hired Gary again two months later to aerated and seed our yard! We would definitely hire them again 😊read more

We just started using their services last year after having some bad experiences through a friend of mine. I have to... admit, I called him out of the blue and he immediately called me back and had someone here within the hour. The rates seem fair and I couldn’t ask for more attentiveness. On top of that, this wasn’t the first time I called them unexpectedly. I’m looking to sell my house and I needed the yard mowed, edged and even some mulching done and I was hoping it could be done the same day. I kid you not, I heard the mowers crank up before I even hung up the phone. While he was talking to me and discussing the process, he had already routed his crew to my house. Name another service that does that? You can bet that Garrison Landscaping will follow me to my new residence because, of all the services I have, this is by far the best. Thank you again!read more

If you want it done right the first time call Gary!!! I can not say enough great things about this company. I had no... idea what to do looking at my yard before Gary came to give me an estimate and told me he would take care of it all not to worry. They expertly graded my awful yard until it looked perfect! His guys showed up promptly and wouldn't call it a day until they felt it was perfect! I had questions about watering and maintenance and Gary has been available every time I have contacted him to answer all my questions. I could not be happier. Now my grass has come in beautifully and looks amazing even in January. 4 Attachmentsread more

After remodeling our home we needed new landscaping; various landscapers planted trees, flowers, and grass but the curb... appeal was missing, until we had the blessed opportunity to meet Gary Ford, the owner of Garrison’s Landscaping. Gary met with us and made suggestions on how to enhance our yard’s appearance, offering expert advice on the cause of brown spots in the grass and solutions for trouble areas where growing grass was difficult. After the consultation and landscaping plan, Garrison’s Landscaping arrived with the goal of changing the appearance of our yard. Gary Ford and his team of landscapers share an admirable work ethic—they are conscientious, thorough and courteous, offering honest feedback with integrity and displaying expert knowledge of how to make a lawn healthy and beautiful. After only a few weeks of receiving service from Garrison’s Landscaping, we have observed significant improvements in our yard; it’s beginning to look beautiful with the curb appeal that we’d been seeking for quite some time! I highly recommend that you hire Garrison’s Landscaping to care for all of your landscaping projects, from planting shrubbery, adding mulch, mowing, fertilizing, etc.; you will be pleased with their beautiful work!read more

I opted to contact Garrison’s based largely on their reviews. As it turned out, this was an excellent decision. I... needed some grading work done on my property after removing about 10-12 trees and stumps from the front yard. I called Garrison’s looking for a quote with full expectation that I would be paying a a premium for the service. Thankfully this was not the case. Garrison’s Landscaping was very reasonable and their work was about as high quality as you could ask for. After about a weeks worth of weather delays, the guys arrived onsite with all equipment in tow. The gentleman worked diligently and professionally to ensure that everything was done correctly the first time. They were friendly, answered all of my questions and worked all day long to get the job done. After the work was complete, the owner and I had nice chat and he made certain I was satisfied. I will now be a repeat client for any future landscaping needs and will absolutely recommend Garrison’s Landscaping to all my friends and family. If you’re looking for competitively priced landscapers who will work to get the job done right the first time, look no further. These guys are the real deal.read more
