Comments: To and his crew did an excellent job creating and building a stone surround in my front yard. They do very good work.

Comments: Great landscapers, looks phenomal

Review Date: 11/21/2021 | Author: John A.

Comments: After requesting an estimate, I thought it was a little odd when he handed me a note pad with the description of the work to be done and itemized along with a diagram of the design. Made inquiries to previous customers and they were very satisfied with his crew's work. He made several important suggestions to enhance the project which, by the way, turned out great! The crew, Martin, Carlos and Mike were great. They were very helpful, polite and professional. As it was the end of the season he was able to get it scheduled and done before thanksgiving.

Comments: I used this landscaping business twice and both times the end result went beyond what I had imagined. I am a person who is aware of design features and studied visual art in my past, and this guy was able to exceed my own ideas. I was overly pleased at the end of both projects. It is my bet that you also will be overly pleased with, not only the quality of the work, but also the absolutely beautiful appearance of Tom's creativity. If you want your home to be a model for hardscape design on your block (as mine is now), I strongly suggest that you consider this landscaper. You will NOT be disappointed. Highly recommended.

Comments: We?re very happy with our project results. Tom?s recommended materials and design were attractive and high quality. The work crew was friendly and hardworking. Cost and timing were exactly as discussed. All-in-all a distinctly appealing upgrade to our home.

Comments: Tom made several valuable suggestions that improved on my original plans and the final price was very reasonable. The men that did the work did a great job and were patient and flexible as I tweaked a few things. I highly recommend this landscaper. He definitely earns the high rating that I and other customers have given him.

Review Date: 04/25/2019 | Author: Ginny C.

Comments: Tom was great - very responsive!

Review Date: 04/02/2019 | Author: Chuck T.

Comments: Tom knows his stuff about landscape design. To say that his prices are are reasonable is an understatement. His crew is extremely experienced, they're easy to work with while taking the time to address any questions that I had, and they did an outstanding job. I'll use these guys again next year.

Review Date: 05/03/2018 | Author: Michael H.

Comments: This company was very professional and friendly. They didn't waste any time doing their job. They explained everything they were doing on a daily basis to make sure there wasn't anything else that needed to be done. Would recommend this company!

Review Date: 12/21/2017 | Author: John H.

Comments: Retaining wall repair - excellent landscaper Tom worked with me and had some great ideas that saved me money. Repair wall needed larger blocks to fill gaps, some filled with small cuts tho.... ~ :^( Over all a very good job!

Review Date: 10/20/2016 | Author: Dennsi F.

Comments: Tom was an excellent landscaper. His quote was fair and he and his crew did an outstanding job. They came on time and worked steady and hard to complete the work. They were willing to go the extra mile to do additional work that I requested, while they were on the job. I would highly recommend Tom to anyone needing their lawn improved.

Review Date: 09/19/2016 | Author: Michael H.

Comments: Tom is a great guy and his crew is great as well. Tom worked very close with me and had some great ideas that fit into my budget. This was a Big Project and they knocked it out of the park.

Review Date: 08/07/2016 | Author: Kathy K.

Comments: Tom came out within 24 hours to give us an estimate. He is honest, hardworking and did such a great job that we hired him for a second project.

Review Date: 08/03/2016 | Author: Geoffrey B.

Comments: Tom came and looked at our yard and listened to what we wanted. He then drew up a plan and estimate. We liked his plan and hired him. Tom's crew came out a week later and completed the job in a day. Tom's crew did an excellent job and did exactly what we wanted. I would recommend Tom to my neighbors.

Review Date: 05/18/2016 | Author: George P.

Comments: We have a low spot in our yard along the rear of the house. Water would pool there in heavy rains and on one occasion made its way into the basement. Had Tom out to add a drain in the low point which now carries the water way into the corner of the yard. Also had them dig out a few mulch beds. I could not be happier with the work they did. The crew was friendly and attentive and took the time to do things right. I will definitely contact Tom again for a brick paver project I have in mind.

Review Date: 04/27/2016 | Author: Dan P.

Comments: Tom was extremely helpful for us as he helped design a new backyard for us. Just moving from Chicago to suburbs we knew nothing about landscape, other than the fact that ours was very ugly, this was very helpful. Plus we had a drainage issue with the backyard flooding, and we didn't know what needed to be done to alleviate the problem. Tom drew out the plan on site for us, talked us through everything and provided a quote on site. I would highly recommend Tom and his business for any one looking to do a landscaping project, with a very high end look for a even a modest budget like ours.

Review Date: 02/15/2016 | Author: Curt S.

Comments: Tom came and looked at our yard and listened to our ideas then drew up a plan based off of our ideas and made some suggestions as well. His team was prompt and did a great job. The project was completed in a timely manner and met and exceeded our expectations. Fair price as we had multiple estimates. I also liked the fact that Tom listened to us and what we wanted and thought looked nice, and did not have a vision in his head and tried to force us to see it his way. Great transaction, will use again.

Review Date: 12/02/2015 | Author: a Neighbor

Comments: We were very happy with the end result. Tom was able to make some last minute changes to original design which exceeded our expectations.

Review Date: 12/01/2015 | Author: Kerissa B.

Comments: Overall great experience and they did a wonderful job!

Review Date: 11/26/2015 | Author: Susan S.

Comments: I liked that he gave us the estimate right away. He and his crew were prompt in getting the job done. We had a brick porch and step put in and it came out better than we thought.

Review Date: 11/14/2015 | Author: Bob C.

Comments: Tom was prompt and courteous with his estimate. His crew worked all day on improving drainage from the side of the house. Put in a sawle, buried downspouts and sodded with new grass. All turned out wonderful. had cheaper estimates but glad I chose Tom. The quality of the work was great.

Review Date: 08/16/2015 | Author: Jim B.

Comments: Tom and his crew came in in timely manner and regraded backyard and installed a 34x18 paver patio that is wonderful. Tom and his crew are very friendly and well prepared to handle job at hand and accomplished it well.

Review Date: 07/24/2015 | Author: Robert G.

Comments: I trusted Tom's vision on the layout of the patio and landscaping. It turned out more then I was expecting. Complete big Patio Paving and Brick project in schedule and within out Budget. We get so many compliments on our front and back Patio Brick Project. Added so much value to our home. Tom was patient and accommodated many changes. Responsive. Work force was professional and friendly. Easy to work with during the entire project.

Review Date: 07/13/2015 | Author: Terry B.

Comments: As part of updating the front yard landscaping, Tom replaced the front porch and walk. The result is fabulous. Tom's walk and plant design works perfectly with our house.

Review Date: 06/26/2014 | Author: Carrie S.

Comments: Tom not only resloped he put in a new drainage system for our 45 year old house. They installed a drainage pipe along the entire side of our home,(buried) dug out 2 window wells to the base of the foundation and replaced the old clay window well drains (that were clogged and cracked causing terrible flooding to our basement the last year or so), filed those up with river rock as well as raising the acutual metal well in all four windows. We learned a lot on why we were having so much flooding. His team worded so hard and gave us both a professional job and peace of mind now when it rains!!!

Review Date: 06/17/2014 | Author: Jeff P.

Comments: Had at least 5 contractors out for bids on this project. Tom was the best by far. He came out and prepared an itemized bid with drawing on the spot. He beat the lowest bid by over $1,500. The only reason I didn't give him 5 stars is because we did not get approved for a permit due to drainage issues. Tom was the most professional.

Review Date: 06/04/2014 | Author: a Neighbor

Comments: Tom was very professional and followed through with removal of old patio and installation of new Unilock pavers in a timely fashion. Great job!

Comments: Tom was easy to work with and followed through with completing the removal of old patio and installation of new Uniloc pavers as planned. Looks great!

Review Date: 04/30/2014 | Author: Robert S.

Comments: Tom's Creative Landscaping has done projects for us for the last 6 years. His crew is quick, through, and always cleans up the debris. When done, his work looks like it' been there for years. He stands behind his work. Of four quotes, his was the lowest.

Review Date: 03/18/2014 | Author: Duane R.

Comments: Tom came out and created a privacy "fence" with trees. He worked very well in small area (25 'x 6') and on my schedule and it looks great!.

Review Date: 10/03/2013 | Author: Jeremy N.

Comments: Tom was very flexible with ideas and was always aware of my best interest... i had a lot of questions and Tom responded quickly and addressed all of my questions. Good design for my privacy setting in the back yard, picked good trees and were within the size requirements I had.

Review Date: 09/24/2013 | Author: Mary G.

Comments: Tom's plan for our backyard corner was very good. The area was a mess & badly in need of work. He developed a plan and had it completed within a week. The job required extensive pruning, trimming, etc. All of it was done & a truckload of trimmings hauled away. I will definitely call him again.

Review Date: 07/25/2013 | Author: Rhonda B.

Comments: Tom's patio design worked well for the area. I gave him a deadline, which he met, and the result was beautiful. My friends and neighbors love it as well.

Review Date: 06/27/2013 | Author: Kathy N.

Comments: We received 6 quotes from various landscapers and Tom's Creative Landscaping bid came in right in the middle, but he matched our lowest bid to get the business. It's been 2 1/2 weeks since our 3 day project finished: removed bushes/old grass, added perforated drain tile system, buried 6 downspouts (to avoid water building up @foundation), added 40 yards of top soil and regraded, and re-seeded entire yard and pinned down a straw blanket, & added chicken wire around circumferance of deck. 2 1/2 weeks later and we have a bed of grass at 60% growth. We hope to see more grass come thru!!!

Review Date: 06/18/2013 | Author: Derek L.

Comments: Tom was very flexible and offered some great ideas on how to get my landscaping in good shape before putting my place on the market. His crew came in one day and knocked everything out leaving the place very clean.

Review Date: 12/01/2012 | Author: Barbara T.

Comments: Tom's service was reasonable in price and the job was done quickly and without a mess. We needed the side of our home re-graded due to a basement water problem. We spoke to several contractors and Tom's advice was the most helpful. He also gave us ideas for landscaping the fron of our home whick we would like to have done in the spring. We will definitely use him again.

Review Date: 11/28/2012 | Author: Pilar Z.

Comments: Tom is excellent, his ideas are great. Very professional and accurate on the estimate. We did not go over budget. Quality of workmanship Excellent, his crew superior better than excellent, every day they left they cleaned up the area, They did my front entrance, which was not an easy project, a lot of stone cutting etc. It looks amazing!!!

Comments: Tom designed an awesome layout with a competitive price! I put in a few of my own suggestions and Tom and his crew were able to make accomodations with last minute notice. Several neighbors stopped by to say WOW! I have already given his number to two of my neighbors and a coworker! Don't bother shopping quality and price I've done the research for you already. This is your next pro for your job!

Review Date: 07/27/2012 | Author: Joe G.

Comments: Tom was the only one of three contractors that I called to call us back that evening. He was over the next day to assess the situation and give us a quote. We went with him and he was on the job the next day with an associate to tell him what needed to be done and the associate and another person were there. They and Tom were helpful, couteous, professional. Asked questions when necesssary - theirs and ours - and the job was completed with no hassle or problems the next next. We would recommend them to anyone. We are also thinking of having him over next year to landscape the rest of our yard.

Comments: Fast service

Review Date: 07/15/2012 | Author: Amy T.

Comments: Excellent work, friendly crew and Tom had drawn up a great plan with an estimate and was willing to work with our budget. The only negative factor is that the crew was consistantly late. They would tell me 8:30am and show up at 11am or 2pm with no phone call that they were going to be late. However, the work was completed in the time frame i was told and my yard looks great!

Review Date: 06/17/2012 | Author: Pasquale T.

Comments: We had a patio with old pavers,with weeds and grass shooting out between the pavers. ?We needed a total makeover. ? Tom came over and that same evening drew an outline of what he thought would work. ?We liked his ideas and we couldn't be happier with the result!! Tom's crew was very professional and it was very apparent that they take immense pride in their work. The final results were an HGTV moment!!! Total Makeover!! We love our pavers and the lights that come on in the evening that they placed all along the seating wall and right under our new paver steps Wow!! We also had them put in a beautiful new walkway, using our pavers, leading to the front our door!! ? Our neighbors love our patio! Tom thank you so much to you and your awesome crew!!! ?

Comments: A little more than I wanted to spend but well worth the professional team, design and quality. The job was completed quickly and everything was done with great professionalism by the team.

Review Date: 05/06/2012 | Author: Ursula G.

Comments: I thought Tom was great, very responsive, and listened to my husband and I before making suggestions. We wanted to keep and use as much of the "good" stuff we already had. He took that into consideration during the design process which ended up saving us some money too.

Comments: tom and the two men that completed the project were wonderful. polite and accommodating. the brick paved patio, which is the size of a driveway, looks fantastic! one thing i did not like was the communication, or lack there of. i did not know when they were coming out to work or not (granted it was early spring and the weather was unpredictable) but days i did not expect the workers out because it was freezing out, they came. days i expected them to work, they did not show up. that was a little frustrating. on the flip side, the price was very fair and competitive. would i recommend this company? yes.

Comments: Tom listened, heard our concerns, devised a plan that addressed them and completed the job in one day. He cleaned up after himself, protected the lawn and flower beds from damage, and even enhanced other parts of the lawn that needed a little care (at no extra charge). He was pleasant, agreeable, affordable and competent. His crew really knew what they were doing. I guess they have been together for ten years. It shows in the level of efficiency. Even though their English wasn't great, they made an effort to communicate. We had fun.

Comments: Tom had some great ideas and did everything he promised. All the workers were very respectful of my property and paid great attention to detail. The price was so good, we decided to do more work than we originally planned, front and back landscaping with a seating wall, firepit, and built in looking spot for grill. Neighbors all love the work done.

Comments: Tom showed up when he said he would for the initial appointment - within 30 minutes he had a plan for us to look at. The computer image of what our lawn would look like was beautiful. As it turned out we liked what he proposed, with some small alterations. His employees were hard wokers and accomplished much in the 3 days he had expected. I would gladly recommend him. b

Comments: I wanted to have a simple cleanup landscaping. Dig out some old outgrown trees and clean them up and have some brick path walks. He did a fantastic job and the home looks like a brand new construction. Highly recommend his company. As a matter of fact, I am planning to do my back yard next year, and I am sure I will call him for the work.
