Hi Jim-

Everything was done to perfection (and within budget)!  It looked fabulous without being the typical fall decor (cornstalks & straw bales).  You guys really helped me elevate my event to the next level! Please put me on your calendar for next year’s event!

Thanks again,

"Our experience was very good. Jim and Wayne were quite professional in our dealings with them and always returned our phone calls/emails and answered our questions and concerns in a timely manner. The men who did the job were exceptional; they were on time each morning, made sure that the site was clean and neat each evening, were extremely polite, allowed us to have a dialogue and open communication regarding our concerns over drainage, and did an outstanding job on the entire project. We are very pleased with the finished product."

Hi Jim,

We just wanted to tell you how very pleased we are with the trees that were planted today.  They look really great and we can't believe how big they are!!  We didn't expect them to be so tall. And the color is wonderful.  They show up so much better than green trees would have in that location.  We would never have thought of that ourselves.  Also, the placement is great.  Needless to say, we are very happy. 


Thanks again!!

Dear Jim and Wayne,

I am writing to you to both thank you for such a beautiful bluestone patio, and to compliment your employees whose workmanship was quite impressive.  When we first met, my husband and I found you to be helpful in explaining our options for our patio layout and design.  You offered suggestions, arrived when you said you would be there, and were receptive to our design changes.  

The 3 men who did the labor were such pros, that sometimes I would stop what I was doing and simply watch them!  The precision with which they cut and fit the stone was like watching art being made!  After 3 days, our patio was completed.  What also impressed us was that you planted grass seed in the disturbed areas, moved landscape boulders from our front yard to the back, and came back to make sure we were happy with the work.

We have a beautiful stone patio that I feel proud of thank you,

I wanted to express my sincere thanks for the great work you’ve done to landscape my backyard after it was in disarray from a recent in ground pool installation.  Jim and Wayne promptly came over to take a look at the yard and were excellent to work with.  Using their extensive experience, they helped me develop my ideas for the layout of the yard that was well within my budget.  Shortly after, I was provided with a comprehensive written assessment of what it would take to complete the project.  Your excellent communication and clear concise direction made me realize that there was no other choice but to get the job done using your services.

The crew that came on the day of installation was courteous and hard working.  They really did an excellent job of re-grading the yard, adding many tons of stone and soil, not to mention all of the sod, plantings and mulch that really sets the yard apart.  My yard is now like an outdoor extension of my house that my family enjoys regularly.  

Based on your excellent customer service, competitive pricing and impressive yard design, I am very happy that I chose your company for my backyard project.  I look forward to working with your landscaping team again.

Dear Jim Kerr,

I would like to take the time to thank you and your team for the fantastic work on the driveway retaining wall project you recently completed.  The work was very professionally done and I have received many compliments.  Specifically I would like to thank you for the constant and timely communication.  I never had to wonder when the project would start, where you were in the process or what the costs would be.  This type of communication is rare in today’s business environment and was very much appreciated.  I look forward to working with your on additional landscaping projects.

Wayne and everyone at Legacy,

We wanted to write and express our gratitude for the excellent landscaping that you and your team have done at our home.  The experience has been great, from the initial meetings, to working with us to incorporate our ideas into the design, to the extremely efficient installation process, as well the post installation follow up for plant care over the winter.  You have transformed our yard into something that we can be proud of.  We look forward to continue working with you and your team for our landscaping and hardscaping needs for years to come.

Thank you,

Joe and Robyn Shramek

Hi, Jim,

I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the gardens! Please be sure to extends my thanks to Wayne as well, he was a very nice guy to work with & laid everything out perfectly. and nelson was great on-site, especially with last-minute decisions & moves, and making sure everything got done in one [very hot] day!  the plants certainly struggled those first two days [especially the viburnums & arborvitaes, and a couple Hamelin’s], but I’ve been watering regularly & we finally got a couple bursts of rain this week, so everything seems to be rebounding nicely and I’m optimistic that all will fully recover for next spring.

Also checking in to see if you still interested in the "STEPS" project? And if you've had a chance to put together a quote.  We’re anxious to move ahead with that, so that it looks as great as the new gardens!

Dear Wayne,

I just wanted to let you know what a wonderful job your team did on our patio.  Ever since we moved into this house 15 years ago, it has been my dream to have a patio going from the house to the pool.  My husband and I had only a vague idea as to what we wanted and the plan you conceived went beyond our expectations.

You helped us to formalize the plan and when we asked for changes you graciously explained why it would not work, came up with an alternate plan, and helped us to achieve what we requested.  

The workmen you sent were professional and meticulous with their work.  They were easy to deal with and when the project was completed, cleaned up all debris and took it away.

Your pricing was reasonable and came within budget as well.

We look forward to doing other projects with you and recommend you highly to anyone who is looking for a quality landscaping project.


Nella and Jim Hamtil

Dear Jim,

I am writing to let you know what a wonderful experience it was working with you, your crew and your company this past year.  You and Sweet Valley have shown such great qualities that it made it such a pleasurable experience for both my husband and myself. 

You returned my phone call within the day, gave me honest feedback about my ideas and created landscaping true to our area.  Every time I called, I received a prompt response from either you or your team filling my every request or need.  Many of our neighbors have commented on what an elegant job that was done.

I look forward to working with you and your team in the near future and plan to recommend you to both family and friends.  I wish you all the luck and a very Happy New Year!

I wanted to write to tell you what a great job your team did on my project.  Each section of it was excellent and professional, from my initial consultation, to the planning and design, followed by the execution and results.  I love it all, it looks beautiful and works so well with the property.  This was my second job with you, each job just gets better, I can’t wait for the next one!

Dear Jim,

I want to personally thank you for the beautiful landscaping of my home. 

What a difference!  I will call you transformers.... rather than landscapers. 

My home has been entirely transformed into a new, more upscale residence.

Prior to having this work done, I felt I had the most unattractive house on the block and contemplated what I could do to dramatically change the overall impression and curb appeal.  Well, the beautiful plantings and Techo-Bloc Pavers nailed it!!

Upon calling you I didn't know specifically what my home needed, but you immediately came up with creative ideas and carefully selected plantings for just the right spots based on size, color and sunlight exposure. During the planning phase, I was educated on the wide array of exotic perennial flowers and specimen tree possibilities. We took our time and I never felt rushed. Whenever I had questions my phone calls and e-mails were returned immediately.

During the execution phase, your team worked quickly and professionally and my home was totally changed in 2 weeks.  Neighbors from up the block and around the corner flocked to my home to admire the transformation. I was so pleased I had your team transform my backyard as well.

I want to thank you again for your wonderful work and will highly recommend your services to all my friends and associates.



We are very pleased with the work you have done!  Wayne was very patient and helpful in working with us to plan a refresh of the landscaping across the front and side of our home. He always responded to phone calls timely and showed up for meetings on time. He gave us a number of design ideas and helped us choose the right one. When it was time for the work to be done, he and his crew got the work done on time on price, and cleaned up after themselves. We will call on Wayne again for our next project.

Subject: Thank you

Dear Jim,

 We wanted to take a moment to thank you for the excellent landscape design, planting recommendations, installation and  service  that you have provided over the years.  Since 2007, when we started to landscape our new home we have pursued your long term design that we have implemented in stages over the years.  You have always listened, made timely recommendations and modifications as we requested.  The service has always been timely and personal and we find it a pleasure to work with you and your staff.  The plants you have selected and installed for us have always been superior and hardy and when we have had a few plants die, there was never been a question about replacing them.  You replaced them immediately with comparable or better plants. You have also helped us address several water issues on our property, including the installation of a beautiful and functional stone bed that diverts heavy rain away from our patio and home.

Last year we installed landscaping along the front of our home, which borders on an unimproved forest area.  The result is outstanding and blends seamlessly with the background.  There are 16 or so evergreens in the design and the trees you installed (sourced locally) are unbelievably large and full and are absolutely beautiful.  We intend to continue to enhance our home's surroundings with your help.  Keep up the good work.

Hi Wayne,

"I contacted you a year ago to help redesign and create more privacy around the back patio of my home. From the first consultation, I knew I was in competent hands. Wayne's professionalism and willingness to listen made him a pleasure to work with. His impressive design skills and extensive plant knowledge enabled us to achieve our goals--beautifully and cost-effectively. The work was flawless; a year later, our plants looks as strong and healthy as the day they were planted. I feel confident recommending Wayne and Legacy Landscapes to my most discerning clients and friends."

Best regards,


Douglas R. Schotland, AIA NCARB CPHD (Passive House) 

Jim began working with us on our landscape 5 years ago when we purchased our new home. Jim has helped us to create a beautiful outdoor environment that we have completed in phases. We appreciate and totally trust his expertise of landscape design and plant materials. Everyone who visits compliments us on the high quality and beauty of the materials and plants used.  Jim is a true professional and his communication to us is always quick.  Every worker he has always very respectful and professional as well.  We continue to be very pleased and look forward to our next landscape project.

Hi Wayne,

We hired your company to install our front porch and sidewalk after another contractor had left us with a hole in ground that use to be our old front porch.  Your crew came in and was able to quickly complete the remaining demo work and complete the job with a much improved design.  Initially we had not considered Legacy  as we thought they would be too costly.  To our pleasant surprise they were only marginally more expensive than what the previous contractor quoted us but the quality of the design and workmanship far surpassed any small cost difference.  We found Wayne and all of his crew very easy to work with, prompt and attentive.  We couldn’t be happier with the result.  Whenever we had questions Wayne was available to discuss the next step in the process, the slight changes in lighting that we wanted were easily accommodated, etc.  He provided suggestions based on his experience and knowledge but did so in a professional manner.

The job was completed as scheduled and at the price we agreed on.  Almost everyone that comes to the front door comments on how nice the end result is and several years later it has held up without any issues.  We will use you again in the future and have already recommended you to a number of our friends and neighbors.

Prior to having Jim come out and look at our blank yard, we had several other landscapers provide us with their ideas.  The problem was that they did not take our thoughts into consideration.  They had a vision and they were not concerned with what our own concept for our yard was.  When Jim came, he was like a breath of fresh air.  He provided much needed input where we needed help, but also addressed all of our concerns and wishes.  In particular, we asked for lots of color in our landscaping, and less in the way of green shrubs.  Color is what we got!  Our yard landscaping has now been established for a few years, and each spring we look forward to the colors that we get to enjoy from spring through fall.  Jim is a true professional with impressive design experience.  We’re so glad we went with him!

Hello Wayne,

Just wanted to get this in tonight after our dinner.

If you’re considering making improvements to the exterior of your home why not consider Legacy to perform the work? We recently had our sidewalk replaced from concrete to pavers. We are pleased with the performance of the installation. The landscape crew was very courteous, prompt and knowledgeable. Thank you again for the workmanship performed, it has been a pleasure!
