Description

My name is Robert De Cesare, and I started my own landscape company in 2013. I hold a college degree in landscape design and installation and actually began my hands-on experience in the masonry field at age 12, when I began working with my dad in his business. I learned a lot about paver work from my dad, which has given me a solid landscaping background, beyond what I learned in college about design and installation. I know how to listen to the "wants" of my clients and how to "make it work" for them. As a small company, I am able to provide personal service and full responsibility for all work performed. I provide a full list of services (see below) and welcome working on landscaping projects, large or small...

Rob is extremely unproductive and unprofessional. We were in contact with him to do a 6 ft privacy fence in addition to our neighbors who were getting the same fence, landscaping and patio done by him. He came out on Tuesday around 1030/11 (after he had told our neighbors, he’d be there to start their holes first thing in the morning) they were here for an hour to dig the holes and left. He had to...

Hi [Member Name Removed]. Thank you for leaving an honest review. It was tough to stomach at first, but I now understand it from your perspective. You're absolutely right, I dropped the ball. To be completely honest with you, this isn't the first ball that I have dropped. The truth is, I took on too many customers and have been scrambling ever since. I agree with you, my behavior was unprofessiona...

Entered into contract with this company in March 2018 with the understanding that my fence and concrete install would be completed by July 2018. July came and went and numerous phone calls were made and many promises and then excuses were made. Finally, I was assured that my work would be completed "first thing" in the spring of 2019. I was their "first priority". In March of 2019, we had tremendo...

Had to wait three months after we got the estimate for them to come and do the work. They would only do the work when it was raining because they had more lucrative work to do when the weather was good. Felt like they didn’t appreciate me as a customer. The estimate called for large stones to be put around the drainpipes to slow the water going through them. This was supposed to be new, clean mate...

Robert and his crew did an awesome job creating a beautiful retaining wall in our backyard. They first had to demolish a waterfall and pond and then prepare the area for a 3 tier wall. Robert was very attentive as we described the type of look we wanted to achieve in the backyard. He worked diligently to design and create a wall and we could not be happier with the end result. Robert and his crew ...

He came to my home to give me an estimate for 550 square foot pstio, including steps. The quote was 7700, which was about 800 more than the Angie's list coupon. When I brought this to his attention he said that he made a mistake and sent me a revised quote, which was several thousand dollars more. When I asked him about it he said he didn't include the steps on the first quote (which I checked, an...

Everything went well. Rob actually went out of his way to get the job done ahead of time for me because of out of town company that was coming. Had hired another Angies List provider that did a no show on me and Rob really stepped up and helped me out. I really appreciated him doing this for me, he had no obligation to me but went out of his way. I highly recommend him and would use him again. His...
