I had several people come to take a look at my plans to completely renovate my back yard, but John was the only one who took the time to walk the property with me. He spent almost a full day with me marking the back yard and helping me design the yard of my dreams, truly an oasis. Within 1 week the work was started, John and his crew showed up every day until the project was done. I LOVE the work that was done, I can not recommend Roc Landscaping enough.

There was no charge for the estimate. They responded back and they had a lot of good ideas. Their proposal was something more than we wanted to do at the time so we decided to go with someone else.

They are absolutely fabulous. He completed a 13x13 patio with rough ground underneath it in just 24 hours with no trouble whatsoever. We would highly recommend them.

Design was thorough, taking the time to find out what we liked and didn't. Work was done quickly and professionally.

I can't say enough good things about Carolyn and her crew. They were very easy to work with, came up with a great design, listened to us, and did what they said they were going to do on time and on budget. Job included planting, stonework, water feature, and lighting.

We agreed upon a fee and he laid out a design. He asked for a $500 deposit. He cashed it and I never heard from him again. I have sent him letters, called him, e-mailed, and have never gotten a response. I took him to small claims court and he never showed up.

David Montoya came to our home for an estimate and was 2 hours late for that appointment and that should have clued me in on what his responsiveness (or lack of) would be. He was very convincing and artistic when drawing HIS version of what would be in our backyard. We had a patio, walkway, kitchen area, pizza oven, firepit, water feature and wall and the worst part of the job is the patio as it puddles in several locations I was told he would "grade" it so the water would run off. They maked an "X" where it puddled then drilled holes and it still puddles since they clog. I did not sign off on having holes throughout the patio and never should have made the final payment. There were several times throughout the process that we asked for references and he only took us to one location that he was currently working on. I presume it is because he has messed up every customer he has had contact with and are unable to use them as a reference. The disprespect for our property by him, his crew and the people in the class was unforgiveable. We asked the second day to have everyone clean their trash and to throw cigarette butts, etc in trash and I still had to clean up after them everyday. When I spoke to Dave on the last day, I said I had a punch list of items and would not give him final payment until they were done. He became very argumentative and spun his tires as he left telling me he knew this would happen. We gave him a check at every part in the contract and he cashed them the same day without a problem. He also sent aggressive text messages until I paid him which was 2 days later even though the job was not done correctly - I did not want to be harrassed. Our advice is to DO YOUR HOMEWORK and I would NEVER have Dave or any distributor of his back on my property. We looked into legal action and believe the attorney general in MA is looking into his many alias businesses and were told by a couple attorneys it would cost us more to chase him and even if it was ruled in our favor, he would just close down and open under another name. We have to rip out the kitchen area and the entire patio and walkway to be done right. He lied about ever doing a pizza oven and certainly does not know anything about kitchen areas. He claims to have a contract with Home Depot and I hope they do their homework too before getting into business with him. A modern day snake oil salesman....beware of the con artist!

Contractor low-balled the bid and tried to hold us up for more money to finish the work, was never on time, began the work late, finished late, and while he agreed to one price to do work he charged several times more once the work was done saying he had miscalculated the bids. Yet the quality of the work was pretty good except for toward the end when he tried to rush.

Joe and Anthony are very professional and hard working. The pond, stream and waterfall came out awesome, better then I expected. These 2 guys are artists. Every stone was fitted and hand laid like a mosaic, an outstanding job. If you are looking to have a water feature put in your garden do not hesitate to hire Metrowest Water Garden Designs.

Initially Mr. Howe was hired to replace worn brick steps and to landscape our front yard. Mr. Howe presented what we thought were great ideas for our original project and also presented us with ideas for further projects. Thus we expanded on our original plans. At the start of our project all seemed well. As the project progressed, a staff member who had been with Mr Howe's company for quite awhile suddenly quit. We would hear from other staff members of the problems they were having working for Mr. Howe. Eventually progress slowed way down. Part of the problem was the rainy weather, then even if only a threat of rain was in the forecast, no one would come to the job site. Later in the project, the crew would just not show up, and we found out from a crew member that the crew was working on someone else's project instead of completing ours. What should have taken a couple of months to finish only partially was finished even after 2 years. We fired Mr Howe at that point. As the previous reviewer mentioned, we were the family in Arlington, that was sued by a stone vendor that Mr. Howe did not pay. We also had a lien placed on our home. We had to hire a contract lawyer and pay out of pocket to get resolution and have the lien removed. We hired another masonry company to finish the uncompleted work, thus paying twice for the same project. We were so looking forward to improving our property but instead this ordeal with Mr Howe turned into what seemed to be a never ending nightmare! To this day the problems still exist. The electrical wiring that was laid by an electrician that Mr Howe recommended does not work. We will have to hire another electrician at our cost to remedy the problems! Unfortunately Mr. Howe and Landscape Design did not have any reviews on Angie's list when we were in the process of hiring him. We want to make sure that no one else is being taken advantage of by this landscaper.

Recent Review: From the quote: "This Service is our way of getting to intimately know your water feature. We use this service as a tool to diagnose and get acquainted with your particular water feature. We literally get to the bottom of it so we can properly educate you on what you have, how it works, what’s missing or broken, and any recommended improvements. At the end of the process you are left with a clean water feature, a clear understanding, and a written report I contacted NE Aquatic Landscaping to have our frog pond serviced. I was promised that all existing wildlife would be preserved. It was not. They killed everything save for one bullfrog. When I spoke with Tim he told me that tadpoles, frogs, toads, pollywogs, everything would be preserved in an aerated tank while the cleaning was done. It was not. Before they arrived my pond had hundred of regular tadpoles, bullfrog tadpoles in various stages of development, and lots of critters that presumably the resident frogs and neighboring toads eat. They are all gone now. On top of that, they never asked me where to dump the leaves from the pond and they took it upon themselves to dump it at the tree line crushing all the ferns that grow along the edge. So they killed almost everything and made a mess of the yard. I was able to shovel the leaves (and dead pond life) into the woods, but I shouldn't have to do that. Anyway, after the crew left I contacted NE Aquatic and they called me back almost immediately apologizing for what happened and telling me how they were going to make it OK. That was over two weeks ago and not a peep since. I am no longer interested in them killing anything else so we will figure out restocking the pond on our own. The quote for this service was $850. I balked at that number but figured it would be worth it to get the pond professionally serviced. It was important to us that the pond be as undisturbed as possible. As it turns out I could have saved that money and hired some local kids to do the same terrible job at a fraction of the price. This was a highly disappointing experience and a firm NO when it comes to recommending them to service your pond. If you care about what's living in your pond, please stay away from this company. I never received any written report. I was not given a post-service consultation to discuss next steps even though this was promised in the quote.
