We live in Massachusetts, and have a home in New Hampshire. Not being in New Hampshire all the time can be a challenge when you need work done.
After talking with a few landscape companies, to have steps and a drive-way put in, we decided to go with Landcscapes by Tom. Tom's friendly and professional manner is what made us decide to go with him.
After the job was started, we knew we had made the right choice.
Tom not only kept us informed by phone, but e-mailed us everyday to show us the progress. He and his crew were fantastic.
He not only did what he said he would do but added a few extras to make the job look great!
Tom and his crew are the best and I would recommend him highly.
Landscapes by Tom has been working with us at our NH property since 2005. They first put in a bluestone patio and wall. They came up with a great design that fitted into the natural landscape in the area at more reasonable cost than the other company who quoted.
Our second large project was to landscape an area after construction, including a retaining wall, shrubs and planters.
And now each year they do a spring cleanup and mulch - we really appreciate getting to the lake and NOT having to do major yard work. And the planters are always planted with appropriate plants for our shady space so they look great from Memorial Day through fall.
Tom has also worked with us on our schedule - meeting us at the weekends when necessary - we are so glad we saw the ad in the newspaper and called Landscapes by Tom.
Several years ago we remodeled our home in preparation for retirement. We did an addition and updating, and the equipment made a mess of our yard. Additionally, our 30 year old steps to the lake were severely deteriorated.
We interviewed several landscapers for ideas and prices, and selected Landscapes by Tom. Tom and Martha were very thoughtful, listened to our ideas, and brainstormed alternative ideas so we could decide on a plan. They provided a way to do a "stagged" project so that the financial hit didn't occur in one year, but we decided to "just do it". So, we land scaped the street side of the house, and put in new steps and landscaping on the lake side of the house.
Their work crews were very friendly and diligent. They worked in the sun, the wind and the rain (a lot of the latter). Tom was present several times a day to supervise and the project went extremely well. We certainly touched bases at the beginning and end of each day. We liked all of the plantings instqlled except one set of 5 plants, and Tom made us very happy with a new selection.
Now, we use Tom for the spring clean up, and they make sure our landscaping is in good shape. They even coordinate with the sprinkler company so that when we return for the summer everything is beautiful and "in automatic". Our project was designed to be maintenance free after the cleanup, no lawn to mow, etc.
We were extremely pleased with the the design and work provided by Tom, and we continue to count Landscapes by Tom as a friend and as one of our best contractor experiences ever. we can't heap enough praise upon them!
