"Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life."

At work Slithery neighbor just chillin' out Time for a break, no?

Our experience working with Dave was not only the amazing outcome of a beautiful yard, but it was also his ability to make it an enjoyable project from our perspective. From the planning and plant selection to the project execution, Dave was knowledgeable, flexible with plan changes, coordinated with other contractors, and showed an incredible work ethic. And… he became our dog’s new best friend!

The best thing about Dave is his ability to design and build a new landscape that is beautiful, natural and looks like it's been there for years. His design complemented our home without dominating it.

Pulling into the driveway after a week-long vacation in Maine, I remember the sight of the Amur Maackia and the astonishing precision with which David situated the tree - its placement perfect. Oriented to show the best aspects and sublimely mated to my home – a veritable pas de deux. If you think this happened by chance, give it a try. Go out and wrestle with a 15’ tree weighing a couple of hundred pounds. It takes skill, an eye for details and patience. I couldn’t do it.

Dave DeJohn was a pleasure to work with. He impressed us with wonderful ideas that took into account our entire family's needs. He made sure to incorporate child-friendly areas and plantings, as well as providing our family with a wonderful outdoor area for entertaining. Our back yard is now a beautiful and usable space!

Dave deJohn is one of the hardest working people we've met. Once he starts on a project, he works long days and weeks to finish it. And he has a good understanding of landscape and garden design, as well as a love of the outdoors and gardens. Just as important, he approaches his work with good humor and real enjoyment. We've hired Dave for several large landscape projects -- patios, retaining walls, planting beds, reworking an old farmer's wall -- and would hire him again.

Understated natural beauty that really enhances your home and property is what Dave's designs are all about. He had great design ideas but also valued our input throughout the process. Just a great guy, a hard worker, and a pleasure to work with.

David did a fantastic job on our patio. He is not only a talented landscape designer, but also a skilled craftsman when it comes to stonework. He fixed some difficult drainage issues (our basement is dry for the first time in years), completed the job on time and budget, and had an attention to detail that went above and beyond our expectations. He has an impeccable work ethic and clearly takes great pride in what he does.

David, Whether for this stone wall or the apple tree trimming, every time I write a check with your name, I feel it has been money well spent.

Heidi and I would like to thank you for an outstanding work of art you built that will endure for generations. The height and width of the wall are a pleasing proportion that have a very substantial look. Sloping the wall to the end stones was a stroke of genius and it did require more work on your part. The finish result was worth the effort. Every contractor that has come in has commented on the wall. We have a few friends that are knowledgeable about construction and some that are not but all appreciate the wall.

Dave came highly recommended and from seeing his work at neighbors homes, we knew our project would go well. What we didn't know, was how easy he would be to work with. We had to make changes in our timeline, design and budget...yet he was always patient and cheerful with us and he made sure we would have exactly what we wanted. We ended up with even more than we expected. Beautiful work!

David exceeded all our expectations. The end result of his knowledge, creativity and dedication is a walkway with grand steps that are truly a masterpiece in our landscape.
