Recent Review: Mark and his team were persistent and dedicated to building the water feature. In short, it wasn't a good summer for constructing a waterfall on a steep hillside. The numerous thunderstorms, downpours, and cool weather made the task difficult and time consuming. Then there were all the hidden rocks and boulders that had to be removed or implemented into the plan.This was Mark's first waterfall/pond project, and he did the research needed to build them, especially spending time checking out the types and quality of water pumps. He also spent many extra hours working on the water flow pattern and force. The result is truly remarkable, a wonderfully unique water feature! The shed site was finished in two days, despite having to excavate and level a sloping wooded area of the property. They had to remove a few trees and they even dug up some of my perennials that were in the way for me. After leveling the site, they added a weed barrier and then a thick layer of gravel. In addition, they arranged the rocks that were dug up and used them as a retaining wall for added stability. All of this at a very reasonable price. We're very happy with Mark's work.

Recent Review: Steve Eldredge, a Pond Master and landscape expert, who originally built our water garden back in the year two thousand, but with whom we had lost touch, responded to our call, and arrived on time on our agreed upon day. He quickly dismantled the stone work where he suspected the overflow of water was happening, made appropriate repairs and set about reconstructing the waterfall area. His creativity and masterful stone placements greatly improved both the functioning and appearance of the total water Garden. Ifelt that his price was fair and considering his work product, we did well. Steve is actively building, maintain and restoring water gardens in this area. We were pleased, also to see an old friend again.

Recent Review: I had the pleasure of having Justin O'Connor oversee the work. Justin is a reliable professional who works with his customer (me!) to address any concerns, talk about what would work best, provides his professional judgement and expertise to have the best outcome. As someone who is not a garderner, having expert opinion was really important to me. Also, as the property is located on a pond I had environmental concerns and Justin thoroughly provided natural alternatives to ensure the installed plantings and lawn would flourish. Additionally, Justin provided documentation of the area of mitigation plantings to ensure requirements were met.   Justin priced out jobs separately so I could prioritize the work, which was most helpful. The work was done in a timely manner. I called Justin that two (of the many plantings) did not do well and Justin replaced them immediately.   The property was left clean at the end of the day and I was kept updated throughout the process. Justin's ideas were wonderful and the property looks great. I would highly recommend Joyce Landscape and thank Justin for his hard work, attention to detail and reliable service!

We didn't get a call that the design plan was ready until a few days before Thanksgiving, more then 2 months after their initial visit. My husband and I were both busy with holiday plans and asked them to re-schedule in a few weeks. When we did go to the Rapoza office, the landscape architect presented us his design plan (I'll email you the plan separately. My husband and I were bewildered. Instead of a casual plan that I could use to do the work, they had designed a formal garden, not only around the waterfall and pond, but deep within the woods! They presented us with a contract to sign that would allow them to build this unwanted design, provide all of 464 plants ( 5 trees, 101 shrubs, and 358 perennials/ornamental grasses/ground covers) bring in yards of fill and planting material,install a retaining wall at the bottom of the pond with an 8-stone-step opening in it, an Upper granite flagstone patio with a mortared fieldstone retaining wall along its lower edge with steps, a Lower granite flagging patio wet-laid on a concrete footing, a stepping stone path with bluestone used in the flat area, flat stones along the top of the water feature, 22 cu. yards of premium mulch,and (last, but definitely not least!) 45 yds. of screened loam that they will spread over our existing lawn, which they will smooth, rake out and hydro seed. All this for JUST under $70,000. Of course, if we went along with this plan, we would then need a lawn/garden maintenance contract with them! We payed for the plan ($800),plus another $700 to have elevations of the slope done by an engineering firm, and we didn't sign the contract. I used a small portion of the plan for what I wanted, and hired the contractor who installed the water feature to do most of the work. I will email you the Rapoza design plan for our property and some photos of what we actually did with the site. We'll still not quite done, but the final bill will be just a fraction of Rapoza's plan. My main complaint with Rapoza was that they didn't seem to listen (or brushed aside) my modest plan and replaced it with this grandiose idea - just exactly what I DIDN"T want. Second was that they hoped to lock us in to a longterm maintenance contract. Bottom Line:They didn't listen or respond to my specific requests for professional help. I think that Rapoza is a responsible, professional company, that would do a good job once a contract is signed. Just be aware that its design plans may be much more than needed, and may they contain future maintainence needs that you might not be aware of.

Mark has the remarkable ability to envision projects that he's never been asked to do before, and then designs as he works, overcoming  any obstacle to complete the job. And he's not above helping us with yard work, leaf removal, yard and garden cleanups, planting trees, shrubs and perennials, and mulching everything after. He's done other jobs as well, like preparing the site for a garden shed, installing a drainage system that works(!) to keep rainwater out of the basement, and other jobs too numerous to mention. He's easy to work with, and his fees are not overblown, even modest compared to what I believe other, larger contracting companies charge.
