DCR Landscaping did an extraordinary job on our home's landscape and hardscape. Doug and his crew came in and transformed our home into the envy of our neighborhood. We received numerous compliments and raves from both neighbors and strangers about how great the landscaping looks.Doug came to our house a presented a detailed plan with his vision and openly accepted input from both my wife and I. All of the plants and scrubs were itemized so there was no ambiguity when the planting was done. After series of scrubs were planted, we did not like their appearance and DCR had no problem replacing those.

DCR also replaced our porch, walk way and drive-way. DCR went out of their way to ensure everything was done right. We were not planning on brick facing the side of the porch to keep costs down but DCR bricked faced it anyway because it looked better and did not add to our overall cost. DCR did a top notch job and all three hardscpaping components. When choosing a landscape company, you want them to be honest, respectful, competent, and fair. After working with Doug and his company, I can honestly say I got all that and more. There were no hidden costs, they came when they said they would come and would re-do anything if you were not happy with the outcome. I would highly recommend DCR Landscaping to anyone who wants the highest quality work done from a team of professionals.
