  Dear Dr. Dan,

The border replacement around the patio flower beds was expertly done and beautiful! It was beyond our expectation. We needed proper drainage to keep soil from washing onto the patio. Chris devised a plan to correct the problem and it is aesthetically pleasing as well as functional. Chris and the team did an outstanding job and it was done in a timely manner. We highly recommend Dr. Dan's.

Sincerely,

  Dear Dr. Dan's,

We are so pleased with the cleanup and spruce up of our yard. Your workers couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. They were pleasant, clean, and hardworking--even pulling some invasive juniper, that was spreading over our front yard, by hand. The removal of the old pine straw, replacing that with fresh pine straw, removal of leaves, edging trees and flowers beds, and grass trimming and planting of annuals on all sides of our house has added a cleaner, nicer looking, inviting appearance to our yard. We highly recommend using Dr. Dan's for their Spring Yard Refresh and Clean Up. We intend to use Dr. Dan's for all of our yard improvements in the future.

Sincerely,

We had a great experience with Dr. Dan and his crew. I highly recommend them if you want a beautiful organized vacation like setting in your own yard. Not only does it look amazing, but our yard doesn't flood anymore. Thank you Dan, Chris and the hardworking crew for everything.

Your crew came early in the morning and completed the job quickly. Thank you for getting the job done when I needed it. I was very pleased with the look of the metal edging. The wood trim had outlived its usefulness.

Thanks again,

  What an Incredible New Yard!

I first contracted with "Dr. Dan" to put in a new fence in our back yard. Our old one was in terrible condition. They did such a fantastic job and our new fence looks so beautiful. I feel they went WAY above and beyond in giving me more than I asked for at a very reasonable price.

The did such a great job with the fence that I asked them about the possibility of updating our landscaping. We recently had several home remodel projects done and the contractors tore up the back yard. Dr. Dan and his crews designed a beautiful landscape plan for us and now, rather than an eye sore, I believe we have the best looking yard in the neighborhood. Or at least we will once the newly planted grass seed grows in.They put metal edging around all the flower beds and filled them with top quality mulch. Again, they went way above and beyond and even pruned back some of our existing shrubbery.

If you are looking for the best fence and/or landscape contractor in Virginia Beach, look no further than Dr. Dan's Outdoor Living.

Sincerely,

  Dear Dan,

Thank you very much for the wonderful job your crew did in our backyard. We had removed a twenty-five year old above ground pool and we were left with a 22 foot round area of packed down sand. We had a shed that we had not raised enough and it flooded with every rain. Our yard had a drainage problem which caused our side yard to become a swamp when it rained.

Your crew broke up the packed down sand and removed it. They leveled the area and put down sod. They took everything out of the shed and raised it and replaced everything. It has not flooded since. The drainage problem we were told by others could be solved with a French drain. Not so, said Dr. Dan. The problem was with the water coming off the gutters. So his crew used an auger and went down a few feet and put in a pipe which would take the water from the gutters and send it right back down into the groundwater system. Even with the rain from Hurricane Matthew the shed didn't flood and the water drained relatively quickly in the side yard.

Chris helped me choose which stones would work best in our yard. The stone areas were bordered with a strong edging and they even made a place for our grill. I love our yard and so does our Boston Terrier.

Thank you so much for all your suggestions and advice. Your crew had in all done in about two and one half days. They worked the whole time and only stopped to show me what they were doing and make sure it was okay. This is a job we never could have done ourselves regardless of how much time we had.

I highly recommend them.

  Dan and all the folks at Dr. Dan's Landscaping,

I'm not even sure how to express how pleased I am with the services Dan and his crew have done for me. I've had drainage problems on my property the entire time I've lived in this house (over 13 years). The poor landscaping choices made by previous owners compounded the problem by channeling all of the water into the low spots in my yard. Even a short moderate rain would leave ponds in my yard for days. It was difficult to find times when it was dry enough to mow, my dogs would track wet dirt into the house and my family and I just couldn't enjoy our yard. I also had many large holly like bushes that were close to my house that had grown so large that they were starting to affect the integrity of my home's foundation.

On Dan's first visit to my house we spent over an hour discussing the issues on my property and developing a plan that would offer the quality of service that I was looking for. He didn't rush through the evaluation process and then grab my money and run. We discussed in great detail what needed to be done and he also had alternative plans if there was something that I wasn't quite ready to go forward with. Dan understand that there is not a "One solution fixes all" for every customer. He tailored the solution to my individual problem.

Dan, Chris and his crew started by removing all of the problematic bushes that were right next to my house. They then ran all of the downspouts from my home into the ground, away from my foundation and down to the water table. They also added an additional downspouts the front of the house to divide the water removal workload over 3 downspouts, vs the original 2. They cut no corners and did the job right the first time. They then regraded and reseeded several low spots in my yard. They removed 2 old outdated flower/rock beds and rebuilt them in a very nice decorative edging and rock. Lastly, they removed the old, uneven and sloping pavers I had and installed a beautiful stamped concrete walkway that starts in the front of my house by my drive way and wraps around the side of my house, through my gate and into the backyard.

We got our first good rain a few days after the project was complete and there was ZERO standing water on my property. I am so pleased! The end result is just amazing and it looks beautiful, too.

During the entire project, Dan checked in (actually came to my house) many times to make sure I was happy with the way things were going and to see if I had any questions. Any time I needed to call his office everyone was so polite and helpful. This is exactly the customer service I was looking for.

Chris is Dan's job site supervisor and you won't meet a nicer guy. On every work day, Christ kept me up to date on the work they were doing, when I could expect to see them next and the planned work for that day. Chris answered any questions I had and explained everything in detail. all of the guys working with Chris were very nice and professional - Josh, Jon and Ray.

I have a couple of other landscaping projects planned for the future and when the time is right I know dr. Dan is the guy I'm going to call.

Thanks again for everything.

  To Whom It May Concern,

The work Dr. Dan and his crew did to improve the drainage and look of my back yard was, in a word, OUTSTANDING!!!!!!!!!! Dan came over and after listening to my wife and I, devised a plan that not only solved the problems, but also took into account the unique needs of access for our four dogs. Once the plan was set, he and his crew (led by the amazing Chris) executed it to perfection. My back yard is no longer a swamp, and the new drainage system handled the combined 20 plus inch rainfall of two tropical weather systems. His knowledge also assuaged the fears of this homeowner as to whether the yard could take the rain (it did). I have recommended him to my neighbors and would so again in a heartbeat.

  Doctor Dan,

Kathy and I wanted to let you know how much we are enjoying our latest backyard project you recently completed for us. Removing the old plants and creating the sitting area next to the beautiful deck you constructed really opened up that area. The deck is perfect for the pool, which we enjoyed on every warm day. We really appreciate how quickly you were able to pull it all together for us. Your landscape team, led by Chris, with Jay and Ken designing and building the deck, all did a wonderful job. I'm hoping our backyard is now complete, but if it isn't, and Kathy wants anything else done, we will definitely be calling you again.

Thanks again for the beautiful job.

  Dr Dan's,

My husband and I used Dr. Dan's services a second time around to create a new deck and pergola. We were not disappointed at all. The previous deck was old, rotted, and down right ugly. Looking at the space now, you would never know the eyesore that used to be our deck. We will continue to use their many services! Great work!

  Dear Dan,

Fran and I want to thank you for the fine job you did on a major overhaul of our front landscaping. The new look is much cleaner, neater, and appears that it will be significantly easier to maintain than the overgrown situation that had developed here over the years. We appreciated your ideas and perspective on how to improve things. We particularly enjoyed working with Chris, your on site foreman. He's not only a really hard worker and eager to please, but he is creative and has a good eye for what will look good and we appreciated how he dealt with a number of our particular situations. As we discussed, I initially was a little concerned about the lack of written specificity in our contract regarding exactly what would be removed and what would be added, however, in the end, this method turned out to work well since it gave us latitude to design, tear out, and install as we saw how things developed. Working with Chris and keying off his design ideas, we were able to add, subtract, and move things until we were happy.

Thanks again and we look forward to working with you in the future,

  Dan and Crew,

First of all thanks for a beautiful deck and fixing our drainage problem.We can now BBQ and entertain outdoors and really enjoy our backyard. Your guys are so professional; the whole process and experience was outstanding!

After installing a pool we experienced major drainage and pooling issues. Additionally our 30 year old deck needed repair, and we wanted to tie in all three of our outdoor entrances. We wanted a useful deck, that would be open and not block our view. Dan listened to our requirements and offered an integrated solution, fixing our drainage and providing us with a beautiful deck with open steps, that no only enhances the traffic flow but is an outdoor extension of our living area.

Dan sat down and thoroughly explained his philosophy and process. He did a preliminary design and estimate. He then had his team come out and review the project, recommending changes and improvements. We then had a final design and price.Of course there were some additional changes as the project progressed, but never a change to the price.

Ours was a massive deck and drainage project, and took over a month to complete. During the entire project, the crew showed up every day as promised and Dan came by regularly to check on the project and our satisfaction. he would review the schedule during his visits, and we always had the opportunity to discuss the project and make minor changes and improvements.

The end result was a fantastic deck, and zero drainage issues. Dan and his crew delivered as promised. There is a reason Dan has been in business for over 25 years, while other companies have come and gone. He does business the old fashioned way, with a handshake and a promise. It is extremely refreshing.

I welcome anyone thinking of putting in a deck or drainage to contact me. I will tell them to hire Dan and his team.

Sincerely,
 
John Wrenn

  To Whom It May Concern,

First off, Dan is a gentleman and understands problems costing potential clients thousands of dollars to correct. He takes time with his clients so they understand their options in meeting their goal. Dan and I spent a number of hours developing a plan for correction. Fast forward, I knew in my heart Dan was an exceptional businessman who I felt entirely comfortable with. After developing our plan, Dan provided me with a very responsible proposal which he showed absolute confidence in. The price was very reasonable for the scope of work. I was thinking it would take at least a week to complete! To my chagrin, his excellent staff of professionals completed the task in just three days. The project came out as expected. So, would I recommend the company? Absolutely! No need to look further. Thank you, Dan, for your professionalism and the people in your organization!

Sincerely,

My husband and I wanted to express how satisfied and pleased we are with the services provided by Dr. Dan and his great team. We had a severe flooding issue in our backyard that made it impossible for us to enjoy it. Dr. Dan and his team were able to fix the issue quickly and we couldn't be happier with the results. We are working with them again for additional services and will continue for any of our lawn care and exterior projects. Great work!

  Dear Dr. Dan and Crew,

I just wanted to tell you how pleased I am with your landscaping work on my front yard. I love it! It is beautiful! I now enjoy sitting on my front porch and look forward to coming home from a long day at work to such a pretty yard! Chris has a real talent for creative landscaping and was able to strategically take what I already had to transform my yard into the look I was after. I also appreciate you educating me on how to care for my yard and what I need to do to improve my back yard. The stone walkways are beautiful as well functional, which was what I wanted.

My neighbors took the time to come over to let me know what a great job the crew did. They were watching their work over the three days and let me know how hard they worked, and how thorough they were. Chris and his crew are very professional and personable. I was impressed with Chris' attention to detail and that he maintained a clean and neat work area throughout the project. I look forward to having you do work for me again in the future to help me tackle my back yard!

Thanks,

  Dr. Dan's,

Thank you for taking care of my rock refresh so quickly. As always the guys worked hard and were so polite. It looks great and will look better as soon as the trees get rid of their pesky seeds and I got some mulch down. Thank you also for all of the kind words of praise and encouragement abut our pond and yard. It has come along nicely and makes me smile every time I come home, take a walk around the grounds or just go out and sit.

Thanks,

  To Whom It May Concern,

Our experience with Dr. Dan's Landscaping was simply EXCELLENT.

We have had a water drainage problem for some time and were finally at the point that something must be done. Dr. Dan's was the first website we looked at after a simple web search for 'yard drainage solutions virginia beach'. The photo gallery and accompanying descriptions were certainly worth a phone call for an appointment to discuss our needs and costs that were to be incurred.

Our appointment with Danny Wasserman began, as expected, with a discussion about his company; professional experience, years in business and professional competence. For us this was important and provided a comfort level as we had no idea of what this type of work involved. A property survey to identify the individual work items necessary to address our drainage problem was done. Taken together the work list was extensive but addressed each of the separate areas: left and right side yards and back yard. Each required their own solution. The costing was presented not as a total package but as a tiered menu. We decided to accept the total.

A few days before work start there was another meeting with Danny and two of his employees that were to lead the work. After the introductions we had a full discussion of all items of the project. This also added to our confidence that we knew what we were getting and had faces to put with it.

We were required to be out of state for all but the first two days of the project, we left with feeling that the work would be accomplished as described in the contract. We were not wrong.

Would we recomment Dr. Dan's? And unqualified YES.

Sincerely,

But it is with "real" regret that I leave you and your staff. Perfectionists, I know are hard to deal with, but you guys always weathered my storms. I will see how the sale of my house goes and in the meantime, I will continue to let folks know that my "landscape needs" were provided by Dr. Dan's.

Take care and stay well,

  Danny,

We wanted to thank you and your team for the work you did for us. You helped us turn our initial desires into a realistic vision and then transformed our backyard into another living space. Your recommendations on the placement and contents of the planter boxes was perfect. We appreciated that you personally took ownership of the supervision of the project, and responded to each and every question we had in a timely manner. Your team was kind and courteous every day. The guys showed up on time, worked hard while they were here and cleaned up after themselves. When the weather turned for the worse, delaying the project due to no fault of your own, you continuously communicated with us providing constant updates.

We have already shown off your work to half of the neighbrohood and will continue to be a walking advertisement for your team. We couldn't be happier with our yard, patio and walkways. We'd be happy to talk to any perspective clients about your team and the work performed at our house.

Thanks again,

We want to thank you for transforming our antique 1960's two-lane driveway into a beautiful, modern stained, stamped concrete driveway. The connecting sidewalks and backyard patio are amazing as well. What a transformation! Our neighbors are shocked and very pleased.

We have had experiences with other contractors throughout the years, but by far, you and your professional team out performed them all and our expectations. We are certain we'll see you again for more of "Dr. Dan's" magic!

I can only say that the service we received from Danny was exceptional and the work performed was of the highest quality. My wife and I were treated as if we were part of his company's family. We cannot recommend Dr. Dan's Landscaping enough! His whoe crew was exceptional and professional. Great job, Dan! We will certainly let everyone know how pleased we are with all you have done for us and the exceptional quality of the work performed!

  Dear Dr. Dan's,

Thank you so much for the beautiful work in our yard. We found you online and went with Dr. Dan's because of all the great reviews. You did not disappoint! Even after the rainey weather we had a couple of weeks ago, your guys were back out in our yard working hard to finish the job as soon as the rain stopped. I was most impressed with how well the jobs were managed. When one task was completed, another crew would come in and start working on a different job. Your workers did spectacular work on the cement, paving, fencing, sod, and gravel. All of your guys are very professional and courteous and they take great pride in their work...it shows in the finished result. Thank you Dr. Dan for always coming out and keeping us up to date on the progress in our yard from beginning to the end.

  Dear Dr. Dan's,

When we first moved into my current home, we felt that the shrubs were overgrown. There was something drab about the place. Then I contacted Dr. Dan after seeing his ad in the Best of Tidewater Magazine, his crew came in, gave the pad a freshenin' up with a sweet new patio and brought out the natural beauty of the premises. It went from a feeling of "Nooooo trespassin'!" to a feeling of "Hey family and friends, let's hang out a little longer, toss some ball, have refereshment and share some laughin." Outside.

Thumbs up to Dr. Dan's Landscaping!

  Dear Dr. Dan, Jason, Jon and Crew,

You and your team did it again! We gave you a general idea of what we were looking to accomplish, and you turned our vision into reality. Before we decided to go through our backyard upgrade, it was "nice." Now, it is spectacular!

From a vague idea to "make our pond a little bigger and landscape with low maintenance plants and some rocks/hardscape," you turned our lovely backyard into an extraordinary dream ecosystem; beautiful, comfortable and peaceful. Our pond is the perfect focal point for our relaxation life style. It is inhabited by fish, frogs, and plants and frequently visited by birds, dragon flies, dogs, and of course us. Before the upgrade, Joe would spend little time outside in the yard, but now he's there every afternoon, unwinding after a long day at work, enjoying the sounds and sights of the pond. Your excellent landscaping results are evident that even during the heaviest of rain showers we have NO standing water!

As always you and your team were prompt, polite, full of ideas, and very helpful.

Thank you so very much,

  Dear Dr. Dan,

Thank you for your vision and professionalism. We love our backyard. It is beautiful and functional. You saw what we could not see, and maximized our outdoor living space.

The overall experience was enjoyable and involved little inconvenience to us. The work was completed in a timely way. The crews were courteous and hard working. There was never a mess left at the end of the day. And we appreciated that you personally checked up on the work and verified that we were satisfied with it.

Again, thank you.

  Dear Dr. Dan and Team,

My wife, Diane, and I would like to compliment you and your crew on the landscaping job that you have done at our house. During our initial meeting, Dan explained what would needed to be done, and how he would go about the process of getting it done. Dan worked within our means to complete the project we discussed. As part of the project, we had a tree removed, the stump ground, and rework of the existing flower bed. From the tree removal guys, to the project lead man, Jon, and the team that was out here, everyone was friendly and professional. I have to give a nod to Chris, who did an excellent job in the removal of the remaining roots from the tree. Jon took the time to explain what he was putting in and when it would be in bloom, and he even added a nice rock feature. I cannot express how impressed I am with the crew and the overall look of the project.

THANK YOU GUYS VERY MUCH!!

I would recommend Dr. Dan's to anyone who needs yard work done. I have already contacted them again for another job.

Thanks Dan and crew!!

Sincerely,
 
Lance and Diane Flickinger

  Dan,

We just wanted to thank you for transforming our front yard. The finished project is beautiful! I love coming into the driveway and looking at my new landscape!

Please say thank you to your team. They were efficient, professional and made adjustments as we offered feedback on things as small as moving the walkway a few inches. It seemed to be happening so fast and I was second guessing myself, but they encouraged me and offered sugestions as we went along. Jon really listened to our preferences for plants and colors and we really appreciated the fact that he used some of the plants that we hoped to save from our old yard.

As soon as your crew left I went out and took pictures. I've shared all of them at work and with family!

Thank you again!

Sincerely,
 
Kathy and Bruce Hevey

  To Prospective Customers of Dr. Dan's,

You would be well advised to avail yourselves of Danny Wasserman's services if you desire a beautifully improved yard and home.

He and his team have been "in charge" of our yard for many years. We have hired them for Spring and Fall beautification, which has always been accomplished beyond our expectations.

His improvements have included not only landscaping of bushes, trees, flowers and lawn, but he has also overseen the replacement of fencing around our property. Best of all, he offers the advice of someone with years of experience in the business, and he does so earnestly and cordially. His pre- and post-visits to discuss yard planning are always anticipated, and he spends much time with us in "putting heads together".

And, his landscaping team works very hard while at our home, with as much enthusiasm as their boss. They, too, are skilled and downright fun to watch as they go about our projects.

So, if you are looking for first rate landscaping service, and more, I recommend Dr. Dan's gang. You'll have a treat awaiting you.

Sincerely,
 
Ann and Tim Lawrence

It has been a pleasure. We love it...no parties yet but can't wait to open the pool and relax on my new patio. Thanks to all your crews who were very professional, friendly and very knowledgeable. You have an awesome team.

We will be in touch. I need to get the house power washed and will need the "jungle" perimeter in my yard cut down.

Thanks again,

Your work crews were cooperative and eager to please. I would like to thank you again for sending the best of the best to perform work on my property. I am sure that you will be inundated with customers once they see the work you did for our family.

Again, I want to thank you for your cooperation and for a job well done.

Thank you and your crew for the outstanding job you recently completed at our home. Replacing the wood edging with decorative pavers was the right call and has elevated the overall look of our property ten fold. We have been getting compliments from neighbors and even strangers walking past. I am excited to work in the yard again, and I can't say enough good things about your business ethic and your people. I really appreciate that the work started on time, finished on time, and that your employees were polite and efficient. I am looking forward to using your company on our back yard project.

Thanks again,

  To Whom It May Concern,

I have been associated with Dr. Dan's Landscaping and Architectural Design for a number of years. While in the past I didn't have a large yard, but an adquate fenced yard large enough to allow for many various plantings such as Knockout Roses, Gardenia bushes and a beautiful Camellia. Also, the yard looked outstanding in the spring and winter with blooming flowers for the particular season. I am now living at a retirement community and called Dr. Dan to beautify my yard at my new residence. I was not disappointed! Dr. Dan is an unusual businessman with whom to work. He schedules meetings with you before and after the gardening is done, and I have always been most pleased with his employees. They are exceedingly helpful, efficient and never leave a speck of dirt, etc. in the driveway or elsewhere. I can't say enough about Dr. Dan and his efficient and caring landscapers.

  To Whom It May Concern:

We take great pleasure in recommending Dr. Dan's Landscaping and Architectural Design. we approached them in late fall regarding a large and complicated late season landscaping project. Danny and his crews were able to finish the job efficiently, on time, and within our budget.

After many years of neglect, our yard was in sorry shape. We asked Danny for his ideas regarding a low maintenance redesign that would provide us with color in the yard for as much of the year as possible as well as resurrecting the lawn of the property. We knew that we wanted our front porch to be enlarged, a sprinkler system to be installed and one large sweet gum tree to be removed. Other than that, we were open to any ideas.

Danny's plan far exceeded our expectations. In addition to our needs, he was able to modernize our front walkway, add a lovely firepit, and create the low maintenance, high color beds we desired. In addition to removing the one large tree, his tree crew pruned every other tree on the property to allow the needed light for us to grow a lawn. He incorporated many of our existing plants into his design seamlessly.

Every one of the work crews that came out was friendly, professional and neat. They wasted no time and worked diligently in the often adverse conditions of December. In each case, they left the property looking markedly better than they had found it. We would like to especially thank Gabriel and his concrete crew for staying late to ensure that the front walk was completed properly and Jason for coming back on a Saturday to finish the sprinkler system installation and to take the time to give us a tutorial on its use and care during the winter months.

From start to finish, the entire complex job took less than a month and we were able to show off our new exterior during the holidays. When we have another landscaping job to consider, we will definitely approach Dr. Dan first.

Sincerely,
 
Pat and Bruce Rowan

  Dear Dr. Dan:

We'd like to take this occasion to thank you for the excellent landscaping service you have been providing us for many years. You and your team are always a welcome arrival in the Spring and Fall for our yard beautification, and the results are just that! We're always amazed at the showcase nature of the work you do for us. It's not an exaggeration to say that your landscaping is a "work of art", and we receive compliments from others who pass by or visit us.

We're also most appreciative of the friendliness and cordiality we receive from you and the team. They are eager to please, and take pride in their work. It is evident that they enjoy working for you. Thatin itself distinguishes you and your men from others who have provided services for us. It is just plain fun to watch your team work, talk to them, and sit and chat with you about landscaping as well as other interests. You are careful to examine our yard first, make the right choices of things to be performed, and outline it all carefully an thoroughly. We always know what to expect, and know that Dr. Dan's team is dependable, that they are landscaping experts, and that they will accomplish what you have schedule and often more.

We look forward to your next visit, and in the meantime, we'll attempt to maintain our property's attractiveness until you and your team arrive once again to bring it back up to the high level of curb appeal you have always achieved for us!

Regards and thanks as always.

Sincerely,

  Dear Dr. Dan & Staff:

I know we are late at acknowledging the outstanding work your company did for us in July and August 2014, but hey, better late than never.

Anyway, I would like to say thank you very much to you and all of your staff for all the fantastic work you did for us. We started out just wanting a little help getting the yard and garden cleaned up with maybe a little bit of redesign work. Jon came out and gave us some ideas and was very knowledgeable and helpful. But then, thinking about that work and the expense led us to look at the bigger picture. Instead of doing simple yard work now and later on next year putting in a fence and maybe a new driveway, we decided to get the big picture mapped out for us so we would not have to damage work done earlier.

Dan, when you came out and talked to us with your openness and honesty we felt very comfortable and safe with your expertise as well as your people skills. Instead of piece mealing the project over time, we were very happy to have you lead all of our projects. I am sure we could have shopped around and maybe saved a bit of money if we had each job done separately instead of having you coordinate it all for us. But we are glad we chose you. From the tear down of the old fence to the new fence going up the neighbors began to talk. They told us our place looked like an estate. And that was before the expanded driveway, extended areas and stamped sidwalks went in. And then there was the redesign of all the flower beds.

What a huge job all of this was for you! But you guys made it so easy. All your folks were very polite and put up with my millions of questions and rearranging of things without showing any signs of duress. It was soooo nice to have you stop by each day and sometimes twice a day to check on the crews and to make sure we were happy with the progress. You were always willing to listen and fix any of our concerns. If we could not get you right away Dena was always there.

I truly believe we could not have found anyone else to do all the work we had done with the expertise and quality of work in such a short amount of time. Did we really get all of that done in less than a month or was it three weeks?

We would be very happy to be used as a reference to any of your future clients. Please feel free to call on us or use our name.

There is nothing like going out the back door and walking on those beautiful stamped sidewalks. The flower bed design really makes it easier to mow the grass and whoa, I forgot to mention the new sod in the backyard. It is sooooo nice! Did I say how good it feels to be able to put both of our cars in the driveway with room to spare?

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you to all your staff and hard working folks.

Sincerely,

Our intial meeting was actually pretty fun as we discussed plans for our yard and what to tackle first. The crews were very friendly and receptive to our questions and concerns. And in the end, we got a great space that our family can enjoy.

We will be in touch very soon with our next project.

  To Whom It May Concern:

My yard was a swamp. I had several companies come out to give me an estimate for drainage solutions, only to be told it was "beyond the scope of what they could do." I called Dr. Dan's Landscaping. Danny came out, on time and ready to examine the problem. He listened to my concerns, made suggestions and helped me with a plan that would solve the drainage problem. His crew came out when he said they would, were respectful while they were here AND cleaned up behind themselves when hey were done. The yard is drying out beautifully, even with the heavy rains we just had.

I was so pleased with their service, we are halfway thru a second project. AND we have talked about a third! I would highly recommend Dr. Dan's Landscaping to anyone in need of a hard working crew who knows what they are doing.

  Dear Dr. Dan:

I wanted to let you know how grateful I am - What a blessing you have been! I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome of the recent drainage system you installed. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!

From beginning to end I felt I was a valued customer. I contacted at lease seven businesses seeking help with my water intrusion problem due to an inefficient drainage system. Dr. Dan's was the only one to respond in a timely manner and offer a ray of hope. The level of experience and expertise was quickly apparent. During the initial appointment you explained the multiple contributing causes of the problem and offered realistic possible solutions taking into consideration the many variables. Additionally, when discussing the possible solutions you were conscientious and respectful of my budget.

I am extremely pleased with the work that was done. Not only aesthetically, but more importantly functionally. Within a week of installation our weather challenged the system and it was a complete success. I did not have any water intrusion. Yeah! I was not home when the work was completed as I was on vacation but my neighbor was and he was very complimentary of the work crew.

In summary, this was a pleasant experience for a very frustrating situation. I look forward to working with you again for my future outdoor home improvement needs and will without hesitation recommend you to others.

With Much Appreciation,

  To Whom It May Concern:

Went online looking for a company to do a stamped concrete patio for my front yard. I came across Dr. Dan's Landscaping. After reading all the reviews, I went ahead and filled out the consult form on their website's home page. Within two days I got response and was meeting with Danny the next day. I told him what I had in my head as far as what I was looking for. He showed me some samples of work he had recently completed. After he showed me what he did to his own patio I was sold. He came up with a plan and executed it flawlessly. They tore down my old rotten wooden deck and were pouring the concrete the same day. I got the stamped concrete flag stone look. The color was exactly what I asked for, and on top of that I got a fire pit to go with it. I can't speak highly enough about Dr. Dan and his crew. Very professional and answered all my questions and educated me on how to take care of my patio. The overall project came out better than what I had pictured in my mind. Very satisfied! I just hired them again to make me a landscape island. Highly recommend if you are in the market for any landscaping needs.

I recently had Dr. Dan's Landscaping come to my property to talk to me about my drainage problems. Dan came out and was very friendly and suggested some great ideas and made a few changes to improve the look of the property and make my problems go away. They installed a new walkway with drains, installed new bushes, mulch, sod, and brought out a lot of designer rock with metal edging to make it a perfect fit. I couldn't be more pleased. They were very nice men and were very polite to me and respected my property. I would definitely call your office again and have some more work done in the future. Thanks again for the fast and professional service.

My back yard was a mess. We knew something had to be done.

We called Dr. Dan's Landscaping. Mr.Dan came out and told us what needed to be done.Soon, the young men were here to begin their work. They were very polite, and explained what they were going to do. They answered all our questions. After the clean up, which was excellent, they explained how to take care of our new lawn.

Now I have a beautiful yard. If you want a beautiful lawn, call Dr. Dan's Landscaping!

  Dear Dr. Dan,

I just wanted to express my appreciation for the outstanding work your crew (Jon, Chris and Derrick) did in renovating my landscaping in preparation for putting my house on the market. All three of your guys knew what they were doing and worked extremely hard over the two days. More importantly, and the reason I'm writing this letter is that they were pleasant and courteous in performing their work. Every time I went out to talk with them, they would stop and listen to what I had to say to make adjustments, if needed, and did so without any hesitation. It's nice to hire a company that has excellent employees that understand the concept of customer appreciation. Iwould recommend your company to anyone with landscaping needs. Thanks agin for your service and please give an "attaboy" to all three workers that worked on my yard.

Danny came by the other day and brought the plant list which you created for us. That is such a wonderful service you all provide! He told us about all the time you spend putting these "How to Care for your Plants" lists together for your clients. Thank you so much. There are so many plants which Jon put in our landscape that it will come in handy in helping me to remember which one is which and how to care for them.

Thank you again for all you and your company do.

  Dear Dr. Dan's,

Fantastic in every way would sum it up. Our experiences with Danny Wasserman, owner of Dr. Dan's Landscaping & Architectural Design, began with a simple 40 foot fence with gate. Jay and Ken constructed the fence with such quality and speed, we then discussed with Dan the possibility of having our garage floor removed and re-poured, along with having a stamped concrete sidewalk to connect with our new fence. Dan not only listened to our desires, but expressed some of his own ideas of how we could include a concrete pad to accommodate our trash cans and fire wood, extend through walkway through the fence, connect with our driveway and go to our front door creating a more appealing appearance to our home. Gabriel and Daniel, the concrete employees came and reviewed the plans with us and arrived a few days later to begin the work. By the time they completed the job, we were so impressed with their craftsmanship we then approached Dan with the idea of removing and re-pouring our driveway. Once again Gabriel and Daniel displayed their enthusiasm in creating a picture perfect project. We cannot say enough about how they both displayed such a positive attitude and dedication to their work.

By this time, our trust in Dan was so strong; we decided to discuss with Dan some ideas for landscaping. Our home was surrounded with overgrown 25 year old azaleas, giving the appearance of being dated. Dan came up with a plan of removing the azaleas and creating a colorful design. When Jon, Chris and Derrick arrived to begin the work, we knew we had made the right decision. Trading ideas among themselves and with us, they not only provided an appealing appearance to the front of our home but also in areas beside and in back. Their choice in shrubs, trees and plants was magnificent. Nothing seemed to be too difficult for these three men, even down to choosing and replacing a much needed new mailbox. The talent and knowledge they possess is unprecedented.

With the completion of the landscaping, Dena constructed and provided us with a magnificent 14 page portfolio. She not only included colorful photographs but also the name and care instructions for each plant. Of course you can't have this kind of landscaping accomplished without having to re-position portions of an irrigation system. Dan arranged for Bob, Jason and Joey to come and provide this service. The were attuned to our needs providing the best possible layout for our existing system. With these improvements to our property, we felt a new fence was in order. Jay and Ken cam through with not only a well-constructed but beautiful 160 foot fence.

We conclude with saying we could not have asked for more of a professional team of workers. From the beginning to the end, Dan was with us every step of the way and everyone involved with this evolution went above and beyond to provide us with exceptional service.

Many thanks,

  Dr. Dan's,

You happened to be the first landscaping company we called. We were pleased that you were able to come out within two days and discuss what work we wanted on our property.

The job was planned well and coordinated between your workers and other contractors to complete all tasks in a timely and professional manner. Any questions that came up were handled quickly with no problems.

All the workers, regardless of their field (carpenter, concrete, sprinkler, or horticulture) had good attitudes and personalities. They accomplished the hob very well, with no complaints and the yard was cleaned as they left each day.

Our flower beds are just what we wanted, neat and clean with low maintenance plants, and with a brickwork border around the front of the house and the trees. Also, a stone border around the house. A lattice was installed around the deck which will prevent the balls our granddaughter hits from going under the deck.

We definitely would recommend Dr. Dan's with no hesitation. Look forward to having more work done in the future!

Best Regards,

Love my new front yard! Wonderful design ideas! From Dena (in the beginning) to Danny (most personable owner I've ever met) to Jon (an expert designer) to Chris & Derrick, Dr. Dan's made my tropical wish come true! Everyone needs the pleasure of doing business with these guys.

Thank you!

  Hi Dan,

Mom wanted me to write to you to express her delight at the work that was done on her yard this week by your employees. She stated to me that they were professional, highly dedicated, and respectful of her and her wishes. The yard is cleaned up, trimmed, beautiful and ready for winter. She's looking forward to having other work done in the near future. You know she will call you for all her landscaping needs. Thanks for being a wonderful company, and a true friend to my mom.

Regards,

  Dr. Dan's,

Our new driveway has just been completed and we couldn't be happier with the work and support we receive from Dr. Dan. Danny, the owner, was excited about our project. From day one he planned, coordinated and communicated with us and his team to insure our driveway was completed on time and the results were well above our expectations.

He used his 20 plus years of experience to help make our driveway perfect, he suggested some changes in design that has made all the difference at no additional cost. Neighbors continually complement and are impressed by Dr. Dan's work.

Dr. Dan didn't just build a driveway, he created and entrance to our home. The workers were professionals and had no problem in answering any questions I had about their work. They were courteous and considerate and always willing to take the time to ensure I was satisfied and pleased with the work performed. Danny was always available and always satisfied and pleased with the work performed. Danny was always available and always wanted to insure all my questions were answered and that I was pleased with the product. Danny said I would love the finished driveway and we do.

I highly recommend Dr. Dan's to anyone who has an outdoor project that needs to be done right. I assure you, you will be impressed with quality of service and the outstanding results.

Thank you for your hard work and genuine concern for our satisfaction.

Sincerely,
 
Mike and Mary Dennis

  Dear Dr. Dan,

I can't begin to tell you how pleased Mike and I are with the whole process of working with you, your professional crew, and especially the finished product.

I decided this past summer that I had "pulled my last weed" and began the search for a company to come in and design and implement a new landscape for our home. I contacted several companies, some of whom were anywhere from a week to two months in betting back to us. Not your company, though. I spoke to Dena on a Tuesday or Wednesday, and we had an appointment with you on Friday. We really appreciated the time you took to check out the yard, listen to our "issues," as well as our desired outcome. We really believed we had found someone who understood what we wanted as well as the need to watch our budget, now that we are retired.

Mike and I were amazed at the workers on your staff, Jon, Chris, and Derrick. They had everything pulled out of the ground, a huge juniper tree and two large bushes cut down and mulched, the beds raked and neat-looking before they left the first day. Jon had even taken the time to save a hydrangea and my peonies and replant them (temporarily) before leaving, just so the roots wouldn't dry out.

By the last day, the real magic was taking place. Jon, your horticulturist, had listened carefully to what we were looking for in the way of plants and flowers, and he just exceeded my expectations! He knew the best location where each plant would thrive and truly has an artist's eye for scale and color. Chris and Derrick were artisans in their own right in shaping and preparing the flower beds, creating the stone path, and tediously cutting and setting each brick of the border. And that brick wall and stone path, well... I absolutely LOVE them!

Honestly, I could go on and on, but I have to end by saying that I would highly recommend your company to anyone. The work ethic and attention to detail of you and your professional staff is nothing less than 110%.

We feel blessed to have met you and were able to do business with you. Your personal interest in our project was very much appreciated. We can tell you take pride in the work you do and in making sure you meet and exceed your customers' expectations.

With much appreciation,
 
Pam Knight

  Dear Dan and Crew,

From the moment you stopped by and discussed a dramatic change to our front yard landscaping to the completion of the job, we have been extremely grateful. We thought moving to the beach would involve less weekend landscaping and more time paddle-boarding and surfing. But, with the original 80's landscaping, we were again spending too much time with plants, grass and weeds. With this new design and stone beds, I can see us spending less time in the garden and more with family. Please tell Jon and Chris I truly appreciate their attention to detail and hard work transforming the mess to a beautiful design. Now, if only I didn't run over the edging 2 days after they left, it would be perfect! Thanks again, I look forward to completing a side yard and patio soon.

Sincerely,

I apologize for not writing sooner, been extremely busy here. Anyway, the fence looks fantastic, as well as the French drains.

I also want to thank you for the extras you provided, taking care of the palm and flower bed. What a difference it made! The whole look is now awesome.

Thank you again for your note and well wishes. Same to you. Don't work too hard. It's easy to have confidence in a company that takes it's pride on excellent service!

Thank you so much for our beautiful front yard. We love every part, from the waterfall and pond, to the palms, to our walled gardens and each and every plant. We spend much more time out front now and take frequent walks around the grounds.

I loved working with you and your guys. Everyone worked so very hard and contributed great ideas as we created our masterpiece. You all put up with and smiled through my requests and were respectful of us, our ideas and our property. That meant a lot to us. Please feel free to send other customers on drive-by's to view our fabulous new look

Thank you again,

  Hello, Dr. Dan!

Thank you so much for doing such a terrific job cleaning up our school's playground. It looks beautiful! I will definitely recommend you to all of our parents and my friends. I also appreciate the time you took to explain what you were going to do and the timely manner in which the job was done, especially over a weekend! Because of your wonderful company, the most important part of our school was ready!

I would love to set up an ongoing service schedule. If you would send me a proposal of the cost and what it would entail, I can present it at my school's next board meeting in November.

With sincere appreciation,

  Dear Dr. Dan's,

We had been trying to get our front lawn right for the last two years with no luck. We live in an area of new construction with clay for soil. Our sodded lawn was ruined after the first summer here. Finally, we decided to call on the experts. We called Dr. Dan's Landscaping and it was the best decision we could have made for our lawn. From the time I called to set up an appointment to the day the work was done, they were professional, knowledgeable, and just amazing. My grass is thick, green and beautiful...I can't stop looking at it. I hate to gloat, but now we have the best lawn on the block. Thank you Dr. Dan's for putting a smile on my face when I gaze at my lawn. It was a struggle for us to get our lawn looking decent and you came in and made it look PHENOMENAL!

Thank you a million times,

Please pass to Jon, his crew and everyone at Dr. Dan's my personal thank you for their exceptional service and impressive work in transforming my "challenged" backyard landscape into a thing of beauty. They did an amazing job!

From our first meeting for the estimate to the final clean up, you and Jon provided me with reliable and courteous service, expert advice and high quality work. The work ethic and attention to detail demonstrated by Jon and his crew throughout the project was impressive. I received great value for my investment and a beautiful backyard that I can now enjoy. Thanks!

  Dear Dr. Dan's,

We love our new backyard! Thank you so very much for all the time you spent with us, whether through email, visits to our house, or phone calls. The extensive amount of work we were having done required constant communication, and you were always there. We certainly felt like we were listened to and treated fairly by you.

We want to give a big shout out to Jon, Chris and Derrick. They are, without a doubt, three of the most kind, diligent, and knowledgeable gardeners They all went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure our backyard was exactly how we wanted it. Jon has an incredible eye for gardening and is a master at his art. He was never without a suggestion, he constantly checked in to make sure we were happy, and his perfection carried throughout the entire project. At the end of the project we received a list of plants and how to care for them.

The little details matter to Dr. Dan's, and the result is a fabulous patio and beautiful gardens. Thank you, thank you!

Warmly,

  Dear Dr. Dan's,

Last year I spent a lot of time and money trying to get my front flower beds and backyard into a livable, attractive space. I MEAN A LOT OF TIME AND MONEY! As Spring approached, my anxiety returned because I failed last year and I was not looking forward to the struggle again this year, so I called Dr. Dan's Landscaping to see what they could do for my yard. Danny was empathetic as I explained my struggle last year. I mean I actually ended up putting FAKE flowers and plants in my yard. So, after a very knowledgeable, experienced explanation of what I needed, I was given a quote (which worked out to be much LESS than my time and money spent last year) and I said to go ahead with the contract. As Danny explained, what I was doing was a band aid and did not get to the real solution. With his very creative approach, I put it in his hands. Then...OMG!!!! LOL!!!! In one day, my front and backyard was the bomb! The crew of Dr. Dan's are the BEST!!! Beautiful. I can now spend time enjoying and planting additional flowers with the peace that they will survive. When I hired Dr. Dan's Landscaping, I not only got a job better than expected and at a very good price, I also got a landscaping Guru who explained everything to me so I can further maintain what was done. I got a "relationship" that is very valuable and not often found in this industry.

Thank you Danny and your crew for coming into my yard and life!

  Danny,

I would like to say thank you for the outstanding job you did installing my new lawn in Chesapeake in the month of February. Your team was nothing but spectacular and instrumental in all faceets of the installation. When I had a question they always had an answer which left me very comfortable with them installing my new lawn. I guess what stands out the most, was the professionalism and dedication they showed during the install. The final process was the clean-up phase which you would never have known that they were on the property if it was not for the new lawn.

Again, thank you for the superb job!

Thanks for a job well done.

  Dr. Dan's,

First, let me say that I am completely satisfied with the work you've done so far. The lattice is not even a day old and I love it! It provides the exact effect I had hoped it would, and it looks terrific. Please thank your carpenters. And although I didn't think the yard required as much tree clearing and pruning as you provided, I see now that I was wrong. Good call. I was very impressed with the results of the tree work. Makes a big and positive difference in my backyard landscape.

Thank you.

  Danny, Jon, and Dena,

Please pardon the delay. To say the holidays were especially hectic for us this year does not exactly capture it, but anyway...

Thank you for the WONDERFUL job you and your team did on our landscaping. We went from what can only be described as an overgrown and outdated disaster of a jungle, to a beautiful design equatable to those at Homearama. The team was very responsive to our requests, consistently getting back in touch quickly and ensuring our full satisfaction. They made the selection of plants easier for us, clearly listened to what we had in mind, created a design that not only met but exceeded our expectations, and finally, explained the proper care of the plants. The work was done promptly and on schedule. They even took care of a few areas not covered in the initial estimate but also badly in need of doing, and also threw in a few extras from the initial design at no cost to us -- all resulting in a much more professional and visually appealing yard.

We have received NUMEROUS compliments from the neighbors on the project and are so very pleased with it. The yard looks absolutely GORGEOUS! Thank you!

Sincerely,

Thanks again.

  Dear Dr. Dan's,

I wanted to thank you and your team for a job well done. You met all of our expectations and in many cases exceeded them. Your choice of design was perfect. You listened to our needs and given free rein did a wonderful job. Your choice in flowers, plants and shrubbery came together beautifully. You showed up on time with a crew that was knowledgeable, industrious and most importantly courteous. You completed the project on time and maybe even a day or two early. We cannot tell you how impressed we were with each and every individual that participated in the project. I would highly recommend you and your team to anyone looking for landscaping design.

Thanks again for everything and we look forward to seeing you in the spring.

  Dear Dr. Dan's,

After we had our pool project completed our yard had very little grass and no landscaping, and a serious drainage problem. We called your company and requested you come out to our home and provide advice as to how we could make the land around our new pool look better and provide drainage of water away from our house. We had a few ideas, but no real clear direction about what to do with the property. Upon arrival you were able to make recommendations and support our ideas with your knowledge and experience. Most contractors I have worked with in the past need clear requirements and are unable to work beyond the scope of what you tell them to do. Your company had the vision to help us find a solution that met our needs and was within our budget. Some of our existing materials such as landscaping bricks and patio pavers were able to be incorporated into the design of our new project, saving us money. One thing I really liked about Danny was his commitment to keep our costs low and work within our budget. Danny provided us an estimate which broke down the many different projects his company could perform into separate costs that allowed us to pick and choose which work we wanted done for this project, and gave us an idea about future projects we could do to improve our home. Danny was able to spend about an hour with us at our initial estimate and during that time he actually hand drew an accurate map of our property and the different areas of work and a full breakdown of work and costs. Everything was upfront and the work was done on time and within the cost of the estimate. This company goes above and beyond the work you pay for. I came home to find my flower beds and tree in the front yard completely re-mulched, something that really needed to be done but wasn't within the scope of our project. Danny told me his company always tries to do a little something extra for the customer because of the commitment to service. In all the projects I have done to my home, I have never had a contractor give this extra level of effort and that is the reason Danny is the only landscaper in the area I will work with.

We are very happy with the work Dr. Dan's Provided us. His staff goes above and beyond your expectations and you will not disappointed with the work they perform.

Thanks again for all the great work you have done for our home. We look forward to further projects with you.

  Dan,

I met with you a week and a half ago and you gave me an estimate for some work on my rental property in Red Mill Farms, which is going to be put up for sale. The truth is that initially I was shell shocked by the price until we spoke and went over again exactly what you were going to do for me. You took your time and helped me understand the value of what you would be doing for me to prepare my property for sale. You let me know what day the work was to be started, and I stopped by to check on the progress. Well, when I got to the house your staff was just finishing up. I went to each one of your workers and thanked them for doing such a perfect job for me. That is when I called you and thanked you. Dan, I must say that your people are magicians and they far exceeded my expectations! I cannot thank you enough for the superb work helping me to prepare my house for sale. I had doubts like most people, however, after the great work that your people did, my son wants your help and I need you to come to my residence to prepare my yard for the winter. Again, please accept my gratitude and appreciation for a job well done.

Sincerely,

  Good evening,

We recently bought a second home in Virginia Beach at the North End and soon realized that a few of our neighbors had become accustomed to parking in front of the house because the previous owners had created a graveled parking area for their guests. We met with Danny and discussed several approaches to, essentially, reclaim the area in front of our house. Additionally, three crepe myrtles were overgrown and needed to be cut back to open up the yard and give it some much needed sunlight. We could not be more pleased with the final design which removed the gravel and replaced it with new sod and a row of dwarf yaupon hollies. Several neighbors have stopped by and complimented us on the new design. Danny and his crew were easy to work with and we recommend them unequivocally.

Sincerely,

  Hi Danny,

We hope that all is well with you and yours, and that you are enjoying a nice summer.

Please accept this e-mail as a very sincere thank you for the beautiful work that you and your company completed for us earlier in the season. It is amazing to me that you were able to design a perfect backyard for our family from what was literally a dirt backyard with a rickety old deck!

I will tell you that not one night goes by that our family is not in our new backyard! We love it!

I would be remiss if I did not mention the quality of every interaction I had with each person that you sent to our home. I really have never had such a positive experience. The professionalism, respect for my family, our property and our busy (sometimes slightly hectic) schedule is truly beyond compare.

I will be sure to contact your company again, without hesitation, in the future.

With kindest regards,

I have been enjoying my new landscaping so very much that I've neglected to send those before and after photos and thank you again for an incredible transformation.

At first, I was leery about undertaking such a project in the dead of winter. However, even with the horrendous heat we've had this summer, everything is thriving. I did fill in with a few annuals for color, but the overall plan was so expertly designed that is is just "playtime" to maintain.

Thanks again for an excellent job. Your entire staff was a delight to work with and I look forward to working with you folks when I get ready to redo the backyard.

Sincerely,

  Good morning,

I would like to tell you how impressed I was with the professionalism of your crew. They completed the job in excellent time, and even cut the grass in the front yard. It was terrific. They cleaned the street area and everything.

I was watering my front yard after I got home from work and a couple that was walking by stopped to admire the work. They said everything was beautiful and very professional. When I told them we still had a couple of small projects to complete, they gasped. They were so impressed that they got the number from your sign and said they will call Dr. Dan's. It was a very nice encounter. I gave your card to my co-worker today and she said that she will be contacting Dr. Dan's Landscaping.

Again, thank you so much,

  Dear Dr. Dan's,

I just wanted to take a minute to let you know how pleased we are with the services we recently received from your company. From Jarad coming out and working with us for the initial job quote and seeing the project through, to Jon, Chris, Derrick and Cody adding the finishing touches to their work, the end result was more than expected. The willingness of the crew to not just complete the task, but to make sure we were happy with our new landscape exceeded all expectations. The entire crew was friendly, knowledgeable and dedicated to customer satisfaction. We have already received plenty of comments on our new landscape, and have taken the opportunities to share your name and our experience.

Thank you again!

This is the e-mail that I got from my neighbors. I could not have said it any better. I would like to add that your men did a great job. Not only does everything look great, they were very conscientious and were more than ready to accommodate any request that I made. Please thank Jon, Chris and Derrick for a job well done and let them know how much I enjoyed watching them put in a hard days work. I would also like to compliment Dena for her excellent telephone manners and pleasant attitude. I look forward to working with you all again.

"Your landscapers did a FANTASTIC JOB today!!!!!! They rounded off your bushes perfectly and I love all the new plants and flowers. Really like the new flowerbed on the corner. They worked so hard mulching and working on everything. They were great. How did you find out about them?

Anyway, I went outside and looked at everything and I am soooo excited for you."

Thank you again for the great job!

Sincerely,

  Dear Dena,

We are enjoying the beautiful landscaping project that you recently completed for us at 2556 Tree Garden Way. We told Jarad that we would like to choose the core aeration as our silver level rewards program gift. We would like that to be scheduled in the fall.

We look forward to receiving our care instructions for the plants that were installed and can't wait for all the flowers to bloom. Thanks again for the fantastic job Dr. Dan's and the crew did for us.

Sincerely,

  Dear Dan,

You are definitely committed to taking care of your customers! I asked you guys to take down some very large bushes and remove the stumps. Your crews do great work and you even came back and filled in all the low spots with a truck load of soil at no charge.

I also wanted to thank you for allowing me to redeem my Growing Green Rewards Program points. The free core aeration was perfect.

Thanks again,

  Dr. Dan,

Although it's been a mild winter, we are looking forward to spring and the opportunity to enjoy our new backyard!

We want to thank Dr. Dan's Landscaping for the wonderful transformation you've made to our backyard. From the fence builders to the tree cutters and pruners to the shed builders and landscapers, all work was done professionally and efficiently. Everyone arrived promptly, was very courteous, and took special care to clean up after their work. Dr. Dan listened to what we wanted and was open to our ideas, and with his professional advice he made our yard exactly as we had envisioned. Thank you Dr. Dan!

Sincerely,
 
Joe & Vicki Vaughan

  Dear Mr. Wasserman,

This note is written in praise for the efforts of the crew who recently worked at my home.

These young gentlemen worked tirelessly, cheerfully and displayed remarkable teamwork. When questioned, their responses were direct and to the point.

Please heap praise on Jon, Chris and Derrick. You are so fortunate to have these people in your employ.

Sincerely,

  Dear Mr. Wasserman,

I could not be more pleased with the landscaping and yard clean up your company has just completed. If I had a computer, I would e-mail you or post a testimonial. Alas, a handwritten note will have to do. Hope you can read it!

First off, I was impressed with Jarad White, who patiently listened to what I wanted done, then tactfully made suggestions. Dena was most helpful over the telephone. The tree crew endured my paranoia that the trees would be butchered and they would be killed in the process. They cleaned up nice, and completely.

Most of all I want to adopt your three landscapers! Jonathan Robinson has such a keen eye for design and made wise and wonderful suggestions. Chris and Derrick worked hard and carefully. All three were so polite and cheerful even when they must have been absolutely exhausted. It was a pleasure to see them working in my yard, which was SUCH a mess. Such nice and polite young men!

They made order out of chaos - a backyard paradise out of a jungle and a house with new front yard curb appeal! Thank you, thank you.

Most Sincerely,
 
Patricia Gray

  Dear Mr. Wasserman:

We would like to commend four of your employees for a job well done!

We contacted your office on September 28, 2011 due to a clogged French drain in our side yard. Jarad White came to our home on September 29, 2011; however, due to water standing in the ditch and drainage area, he wanted to wait and look at the site after the water receded. He returned on October 4, 2011, and gave us a proposal to correct the problem. Jarad went over everything with us, and we later decided to have your company complete the job for us.

During the week of October 10, 2011, your crew consisting of Jon Robinson, Derrick McKinney and Chris Dugas replaced the drainage system. They were the hardest working team we have ever seen. They worked so well together and did a great job. Even when they had to do more work than originally planned, they did not complain and continued working to complete the job in a satisfactory manner.

These four employees are definitely an asset to your business. Jarad makes a great impression and is very easy to talk with. Jon, Derrick and Chris are congenial and very hard workers. You are fortunate to have them as your employees.

Please convey our gratitude to these men for a great job.

Sincerely,
 
Robert & Faye Hollowell

  Dan,

I just wanted to compliment the crew you had working on the Burke's backyard last week. They were very courteous and friendly, as well as professional. They wasted no time at all getting the old weeds up and out, and hauling in the new dirt. Lisa and I were both surprised how fast the sod went in. They also did an exceptional job on the stone path, as you saw yourself on your visits.

Thank you very much. It was our pleasure having you and Jon's crew work on our yard.

Sincerely,
 
John Burke

  Dear Dr. Dan,

We just wanted to send you a note to tell you how impressed we are with our new landscaping in our front yard. From the first visit with Jarad to the final installation with Jon and his crew we could not be more pleased. They were professional, took time to answer our questions, and left the area immaculate when they left. They even transplanted some items for us that were not in the contract. Most of all we were impressed with how neat and tidy they left the area.

We are the second owners of this home and have never worked with a landscaping company. In the spring we are considering having work done in our backyard and you will be the first person we call.

Sincerely,
 
Bill & Paula Shirk

  Dr. Dan,

Just wanted to give your crew a bit ATTABOY for the work they did today. Best of all, they saved my marriage by doing a great job on the flower bed in the front of the house. For the past 10 years, that has been on my "Honey-Do" list, but I never got to it!

I look forward to getting some green in a few weeks. We'll talk about the back yard when the budget allows.

Thank you.

  Jarad & Danny,

Pam and I wanted to express our thanks and gratitude for the pleasant experience we had in the work you did for us. We want to especially express our thanks to your crew that did the work. They were very professional, helpful in explaining any questions we had, and personable. They are the face of your company and they represented you very well. Please pass on our thanks to them from us.

Our yard has been a disaster for almost a year after having a landscaper try and do his thing. Within a few months, it started to look bad. Jarad stopped by after our inquiry and assured us that Dr. Dan's could help us. As was your crew, Jarad was professional, personable, knowledgeable, and sensitive to our needs in that, being retired and on a fixed income, he worked with us and our budget.

The results were more than we expected. Since we are not landscapers, we relied on his expertise and were rewarded with more than we expected. We are more than satisfied and will be bringing friends and family over to showcase your work.

We will definitely be recommending you to others as landscape conversation arise. Thank you again, and if you would like to show our backyard to potential customers, call us...

Sincerely.
 
Rob and Pam Hammer

  Dr. Dan,

I wanted to express my thanks for the great job your crew did landscaping my yard last week. I have already had several of my neighbors tell me how nice it looks.

I was especially impressed with your work crew - Jon, Derrick and Chris. They were extremely conscientious and friendly. You are fortunate to have employees of such high quality.

Please feel free to use me as a reference for any future customer.

Thanks again.

  Dr. Dan's,

I wanted to say thank you to Jarad and the crew. If they can receive word from this email, please tell them my husband was totally surprised,(this was a secretly planned surprise)and quite happy with the job. He especially loves the downspout work. It works great, even in a huge storm.

Thank you.
