What a great experience it was to have such a professional, caring team work to make an idea come to life at our home. Dave, Chuck, Augie and the team were wonderful to work with...prompt, timely, talented and so pleasant whether it was discussing plans, scheduling and all that goes into a project like ours. We could not be happier with the end product and would highly recommend #1 without hesitation. We now get to enjoy the finished product every day!
— Elizabeth Shields
Once again I must write a testimonial to Dave and Chuck and the wonderful crew. After having Dave update all our landscaping and front patio and walkway we could not get enough! This year we added a beautiful new patio to our backyard which completes our dreams. It is truly amazing and the workmanship is beyond compare. They came in as usual and went above and beyond to create our dream patio. A useless grass area in the back corner of our property is now a destination!

Walking stones from our pathway to our patio is so perfect since we never have to walk on wet grass and we cannot thank him enough for replacing our ugly shed ramp with patio stones.

Chuck is so patient and a true master of his art and Dave is never pushy about anything, He presents wonderful ideas to choose from and we work from there. They always show up, clean after themselves and honestly become part of our family. We love them all!!

Don't think we have another place for a patio but if I did, Dave would be the only one We would call!
— John and Trudy Arena
We are extremely pleased with the work Dave and his crew did in our front yard. They turned a large area of dirt where no grass would grow because of the shade into a beautiful area. They circled the tree with a low border of river rocks. Then they filled in the area with mulch and 7 large rocks. It is very impressive and we receive compliments from neighbors just driving by. The prices were reasonable and Dave and his crew came and worked quickly.
— Deborah and Bennett Liebman
We met Dave at a home show and had a favorable impression-knowledgeable and generous with his time. Following a phone call, he came to our house, saw the scope our project, and promptly emailed us an estimate. In a few weeks our project, was begun by two employees, Chuck and Dan, who had great work ethics, They asked if he had any questions or suggestions. The work was done in about four days as expected. We are completely satisfied and have received several positive comments about the good workmanship. We would gladly recommend Dave and his employees for any stone work.
— Frederick Parker
I just wanted to say Dave did an awesome job replacing our front walkway along with overlay into our front entry way. Dave made suggestions which were great. Dan and Chuck were on the job daily and were very courteous and professional. The job site was left neat and clean every day. I would highly recommend #1 Stonescape. I can't wait to contact them again for another project!
— Debbie Yauch
Two years ago Dave and his crew built stone front steps and walkway for me as well as enhancing my existing front landscaping. I was so pleased with their work and work ethic that I contacted them again recently. This time they built back steps with bluestone, enhanced my existing patio with blue stone and planted several large fir trees. Again, amazing work! David and his entire crew are great to work with. They are on time and responsive. It was difficult to get the trees and stone into my back yard (homes very close together in my neighborhood) but they did so with no damage to my lawn or my neighbor's lawn. Went way out of their way in every way!
— Peggy Naughton
Dave and his crew are true professionals in their trade, their craftsmanship and attention to detail totally exceeded my expectation. I can't wait for next years project.
— Richard Coleman
We had Dave and his crew build new front steps to the entrance of our house and we are absolutely thrilled with the results. We were not sure what we wanted and they were very helpful in picking out color and design for the new stairs. The crew was very professional. They showed up on time and cleaned up each day. They did an excellent job removing the existing front stairs and building the new stairs. We are very happy with the work and the whole experience and we plan to use them again.
— Tom & Patrice McCarthy
We asked David and his crew to rebuild our 2 year old patio for us. Everything was done beautifully and every day when they left, you didn't even know they were there. They were so professional and great to work with, and always kept us informed every step of the way. We can't wait to have them do our next project for us! It's nice to see there are still companies out there that take pride in their work. Thank you again for everything!!
— Dennis & Irene
We hired #1Stonescaping for removing an old patio under our deck. Dave's recommendation was spot on and the results were amazing. We were given a timely and fair estimate and our job was completed quickly. The whole team was friendly, non-intrusive and cleanup was impeccable. I will be using Dave after my new fence is installed to landscape my property and would recommend them again and again!
— John and Trudy Arena
I really appreciated the professionalism and just plain pleasantness of your work crew. They did not just come in to do a job. They took their time, they thought about the finished project and suggested
slight alterations to make it better. As I said, I posted daily updates on my Facebook page and the compliments were fantastic. The end result is better than what I asked for. Thank you and your crew for not just doing but thinking doing and making sure it was perfect. I will use your services again.
— Tom & Karan Mercadante
#1 Stonescaping is truly #1. David and his crew just completed designing and installing a new patio, front steps and landscaping at my home. They transformed my yard beyond what I believed possible. The crew arrived promptly at 8 am and put in a full day's work. They did not leave the work site until it was completely cleaned up. They were considerate of my neighborhood and so polite to me. David was responsive to my phone calls and never tired of my many questions. He gave me many good suggestions which I had not considered and certainly helped to make the end product so beautiful. I highly, highly recommend #1Stonescaping, they are true professionals.
— Rita Swiderski
My wife and I would like to thank David, Chuck, & Dan for doing three separate projects at our home over the last year. The projects covered stone entry stairs, pool patio stairs, retaining walls, window wells, repair work to an old patio, moving shrubs, bringing in stone, and all related site work. I had made mistakes in the past going the cheaper route and hiring a contractor who "could do it" but didn't specialize in it. I should have hired #1 Stonescaping the first time! This really is one of those trades where reputation, specialization, and length of time in the business matters. The whole, "you get what you pay for" is as true as ever.

I own and operate a real estate investment management company and have a lot of experience hiring vendors and have come across all types over the last 15 years. I can assure you that these gentlemen are honest, courteous, reliable, and know their trade down to the tiniest of details. They will meet deadlines (weather always plays a role) and do the work as agreed and probably a little extra as they take great pride in their creation.
— Steve Alvarez
Dave and his crew (Dan and Chuck) just finished our beautiful new stone walkway and front step restoration! It's a long walkway that connects our side door and runs along the front of the house to the front steps. A neighbor walking by shouted out, "Looks like a new house"! All three gents are very professional, they started the job as promised and worked until it was finished. The demolition materials were taken off site as they were removed with the yard left without debris over night. The quality of the work and materials is superb and the price was very fair. I would recommend #1 Stonescaping without reservation. I will definitely work with Dave and the crew for our next landscaping project!
— Kenneth Handin
Dave and his team did a great job replacing our retaining wall. From the very beginning, Dave was professional, prompt, and came through on everything we asked for. He made sure the wall looked great and was built to last. Since the wall ran down the property line, Dave also demonstrated great diplomatic skills, communicating with our neighbor regularly throughout the job. I highly recommend #1 Stonescaping.
— Chris Parker
We had Dave and his crew (Chuck and Dan) out to our home to redo a fire pit /patio. In about 16 hrs they turned what was an eyesore into a showpiece. Chuck ran the backhoe with amazing precision. They roughed in the design one day and made it come to life the 2nd day. The transformation is stunning! These men are real craftsmen that take genuine pride in what they do and boy does it show!
— Jim & Lee Barber
Well done and well managed job. Dave, Chuck and Dan worked with me on all the changes I wanted as the job was progressing.
— Andy Christo
This was the third job that we had Dave and #1 Stonescaping complete for us. The old, uneven yard was a poor counterpoint to the nice beds and stone islands that Dave create about a year ago. We wanted to level the yard and install sprinklers. Dave connected us with an outstanding irrigation company, Aquaturf, and coordinated with Mike Pasquini with Aquaturf on the job. The two companies worked hand in glove with one another to complete the job on time. The estimates for both the yard and the sprinkler system were very reasonable, and my neighbors were amazed at how nicely the yard came in within about 10 days. I really appreciate Dave providing regular updates on how much to water, when to cut the yard for the first time, and hints on follow-up with my lawn care company.
Dave and #1 Stonescaping always do great work!
— Karl Rethemeyer
There are not enough words to describe how beautiful our patio turned out. Dave and his crew are simply the best. We were project 11 in 2007. Since that time we had patio projects in Pennsylvania and Maryland that were similiar to our Delmar project. Nothing compares to the work and professionalism that Dave and his crew present. If we ever moved back to the NY area we would contact Dave.
— Michele Deforge
Dave and his dedicated crew did an excellent job on our outdoor patio. He was able to offer many design and product ideas on pavers for our backyard patio. When we approached him well into the fall season, he was up front and honest about expectations being dependent upon weather. We got cooperation from the weather and, sure enough, Dave came through and finished the pavers in record time. The quality of the work looks exceptional and the site was left in impeccable shape when the job was done. I would recommend #1 Stonescaping to anyone needing home improvements. There's a reason why the list of positive testimonials is a long one. Dave keeps customer service at the forefront of his business and we, like the rest of his customers, appreciate that.
— T. Doyle
Fantastic is how I would describe Dave, Chuck and Johnny of #1 Stonescaping. Dave is very straight-forward, honest and punctual in his work ethics.I had several small projects and all were completed in record time-2 1/2 days. I couldn't believe how concerned he was to give us exactly what we wanted and to keep the cost down . I plan on having him back in the Spring 2014 to complete our outdoor space. The front entry walkway is so perfect! Thank you Dave and Chuck and Congratulations Grampa Dave.
— Robert & Rosemary Mineau
We provided some challenging geography and a sketchy vision... and Dave, Chuck, John & crew created a stunningly beautiful and functional space! Our entire backyard is a sloping hill that backs down to a pond. We wanted a fire pit area that would be part of the existing patio but never knew how to tie it altogether. Dave and Chuck did! They incorporated a bluestone staircase, built the fire pit area into the hill and created an outdoor kitchen that tied the two spaces together seamlessly. They made it look like the entire project was created at the same time. In addition to their experience and ability to take your vision and improve upon it a hundred fold, they are the sweetest group of guys to have around day-to-day. They're not only true professionals, they're artists at what they do. Helpful hint: give them as much flexibility as possible and you'll not be disappointed:-) Hiring them was a blessing in every way and we look forward to having them back for our next project!
— Greg & Amanda Shephard
Dave completed work on a retaining wall and walkway for me and I could not have been more pleased. The quality of the work was quite evident but what I appreciated as much was the manner in which he communicated and worked with me throughout the process. Very responsive and a straight shooter! Recommended highly...
— Joe Kavanaugh
Dave, Chuck, and crew did a fantastic job designing and constructing a beautiful patio for our new home! Dave met with us and patiently listened while we explained how we would like to use our patio and he provided the kind of valuable insight and suggestions you only get from years of experience. He guided us as we selected paver styles and colors and his vision helped us create the perfect design for relaxing and entertaining while also enhancing the beauty of our outdoor living space.

The crew worked diligently and were meticulous in their attention to detail. #1 Stonescaping exceeded our already high expectations and we highly recommend them to anyone searching for professional stone work. Thanks guys!
— Jason Ryan
#1 Stonescaping was recommended to me by a friend who was very pleased with their work. Now, I too am very pleased with their work! I had them improve two existing beds against the front of my home. They removed several old deer-eaten shrubs and replaced rotted landscape timbers with about 60 feet of new and better ones. They also filled the beds with #2 stone, taking care around the remaining shrubs and a light pole. I opted for stone over mulch because the stone won't decay, so it won't need to be replaced. Now, the area in front of the house looks great, very fresh and very neat. It is exactly what I wanted.
— Nancy H.
Dave has done a number of projects for us including new stone walkways and just recently did an entire redesign of our landscape. He has great vision and thought of things we didn't think possible. The quality of the work and professionalism of him and his team is second to none. They are punctual, finished the projects on schedule and kept things clean, even going so far as to pack up all their equipment before taking lunch breaks.
— Chris & Melissa B.
David and his crew did a wonderful job on our patio. They worked closely with us to get our design just right. They were willing to give opinions about our project when we needed them, based on their years of experience, and we couldn't be happier about the end result. Having dealt with many contractors for various projects over the years, we found David and Chuck to be two of the most professional people we have known. They were also very friendly and a pleasure to interact with throughout our installation. The crew was on time and worked on our project continuously until completion, finishing several days earlier than they had projected. We would recommend #1 Stonescaping to anyone who wants a high quality patio professionally created by a company that is a pleasure to work with.
— Deb & Brian Perrotto
We had our old concrete sidewalks replaced by Dave and his crew. They did a beautiful job. We love the new walkways. Really makes our home look nice. We would highly recommend them. Great job boys!
— August and Barbara Jones
It's impossible to fully describe what a terrific job Dave and his crew did. They completely overhauled our postage stamp-sized brick patio and very uneven backyard, creating two patios with pavers, flagstone, and steps, along with a great yard space perfect for our son and his friends to play in. Dave had an uncanny ability to grasp our vision for the patios and yard and turn it into reality. More importantly, he helped guide the process, suggesting ways both big and small to improve the end result. I have to admit I was a bit leery of the process when it started, but as soon as I met the crew and saw what great work they did, my mind was completely at ease. By the time the crew was finished with the patio and ready to put in the landscaping, I knew that all it would take would be a quick conversation with Dave for him to understand the types of plants and colors we wanted, and he would make it happen. The entire project was a home run!

We heartily recommend #1 Stonescaping - everyone there takes great pride in their work, and is committed to providing the customer with high quality results.
— Jodi Kerper
We recently had a stone patio project completed by #1 Stonescaping. During our first meeting with Dave, he listened to our plans for what we were looking for, but was able to offer alternatives to fit our more rustic vision/theme and fit in with our natural surroundings. These offerings included quarried limestone seating and a stacked fieldstone fire pit. Once we decided on a stone and color, Dave took us to an outdoor display providing an example of our selection.

Looking at the display, the color was much lighter than we were anticipating - Dave saved us from what would have been a huge disappointment! When our project came up on their schedule, Dave went out with surgery, but Chuck and Johnny kept the project moving along and delivered. Chuck took over the communication duties making sure that we were satisfied and offering insightful suggestions along the way. Johnny's craftsmanship in constructing the natural stone fire pit was impressive. He worked very meticulously and demanded more of himself than anyone else could have imposed. We were so happy with the end result that we added in a second project asking him to build a natural stone retaining wall for our landscaped area in the front of our home. Johnny, again, created a beautiful stone wall. Neighbors that walk by can't help but praise it. Dave, Chuck, and Johnny take great pride in what they create - as they should. Thanks to their combined efforts, we're enjoying our new outdoor space!
— Rick and Michele Sundeen
Dave and his crew recently created a beautiful bluestone patio for us. Within minutes of our first meeting Dave hit on exactly what we wanted...and needed. He was great at helping us use our space to the best advantage and pleasantly accepted a few whimsical requests on our part. His staff is professional and courteous. The attention to detail and finishing touches is artistic. We now have a patio that could be featured in a magazine!
— Tom Bergin & Cecily Bailey
It was a pleasure working with Dave & crew. Dave arrived on time to give me an estimate; he was courteous, knowledgeable and helped me make choices that suited both my outdoor areas and my budget. He and his crew came when they would and finished the job quickly and neatly. I am very happy with their work and would highly recommend #1 Stonescaping.
— Elena Oliver
I have been living in my house for six years. In six years I have contracted four landscapers that promised to deliver results that never materialized. Tired of spending money I had totally given up hope on ever being able to enjoy the outside of my house. I'm not big on tears but today I am emotionally moved by the transformation that has taken place in my front and back yard. I gave Stonescape my vision and they superseded my expectations. The overall presentation is striking, and beautiful. I want to thank Stonescape not just for a job well done, but for your professionalism as well. You showed and completed the work on time as promised. You made me BELIEVE again and thanks to you I will be spending my summer outdoors for the first time in six years.
— C. Staton
The crew at #1 Stonescaping were professional and courteous. We have been clients of Dave and Ed for many years. The look of our house went from okay to amazing. Dave has a gift in landscape design. Working with Dave has been a pleasure. The finished product, completed on a timely basis, is exactly what we wanted;to compliment our house. We were pleased with the service and would not hesitate to work with them again.
— Sharon and Edward Rosen
What can I say that hasn't already been said before..... Dave, Chuck, Johnny (the Flash) and Kenny are AWESOME! When we decided to remove our old deck and replace it with a small deck and patio I had no idea what I wanted. Being a gardener myself I thought I knew what I liked..Well I was wrong. After spending some time with Dave, he got to know me and my husband and what we "thought" we wanted. Dave drew up a design and I immediately knew I would love it! It was original, refreshing and fit my personality and yard perfectly! He incorporated all the colors and plants that natural stones to make me a patio and garden of my dreams. I can not wait til spring!!! Since my husband gave me carte blanc, I also had our front walkway redesigned and no one bugged out when at the last minute I decided to incorporate the entire front of the house too! This of course added a ton of work to the job, bit Dave never batted an eye, he immediately designed not only the most beautiful walkway, he also designed a garden to balance out the front of the house! I cannot wait to show off my new space! I'm having a party in the spring just to show off the renovations. I can't believe how awesome everyone was! This company is EXTREMELY reliable, if they say they will be there on a certain day you can bet they will. They clean up enter themselves (remove debris, excess soil, rocks, etc). All you need to do is sit and enjoy your new view. Chuck is an absolute craftsman and artist at designing and placing stone, Johnny is the most accurate stone cutter I have ever seen. I watched him cut the pavers and he NEVER made even the slightest mistake. Talk about being blown away! Which saves money as you don't need to purchase more stone due to mistakes! I only had one problem with the whole crew - GETTING THEM TO ACCEPT MY THANKS BY TAKING A BREAK AND EATING SOME WARM JUST BAKED MUFFINS! LOL These guys work from the minute they get here til the minute they leave, If they had three arms, I'm afraid they would have ate their lunch while working! If any
— Stacie Ryan
As a 1st time homeowner with little landscaping experience it was imperative that the professionals I chose to complete my project possessed creativity, experience and respect for their customers. During my first meeting with Dave I quickly recognized all of these qualities. Not only did Dave offer his expertise based on years of experience but he also took the time to listen to what it was I wanted without immediately dismissing me or simply not listening. Dave very patiently addressed all of my questions over several meetings. Once the project began Dave introduced me to his team and kept me apprised of each step his team was taking. Each morning I was greeted by Chuck and Dan as they began their workday. They were always so professional and willing to answer any additional questions I had. In the midst of the project, an unexpected problem arose related to pre-existing conditions of the property. Dave and his team didn't bat an eye. Dave quickly went above and beyond working to locate the necessary contractor to address the unforeseen problem so the landscaping project could continue. The final product resulted in a complete overhaul of my front yard which is absolutely gorgeous! New steps, new walkway, new yard, new landscaping! It is beyond anything I could have imagined on my own. Not only has it increased the curb appeal of my house it also makes me smile every time I come home! I would recommend Dave and his team to EVERYONE!
— Laura Goff
I wholeheartedly endorse #1 to others. First, Dave and his team take great pride in the quality of their work which was always evident whether working hard or creatively on our project. Secondly, they provide great customer service. Whether with design assistance or addressing questions, you can sense immediately that Dave is both knowledgeable and trustworthy. Third, they are very conciensious. Whether it is your family or neighbors who allow access through their property for your project, these guys are true gentlemen. Lastly, their pricing was fair and reasonable. I highly recommend Dan, Chuck Dan and Kenny to anyone.
— Jim Conroy
My friends/neighbors had their walkway replaced by #1Stonscaping a few years ago and I loved it. It made me aware how bad mine was, so I decided to replace it too. Within a few weeks they were able to do it and it looks beautyful. The guys did a fantastic job, in two days it was done, everything looks so clean and neat. I can not look enough at it, sitting outside even in the rain! I highly recommend Dave and #1Stonescaping. The only regret? That I didn't do it sooner!
— Anita Wahlen
#1 stonescape recentlly replaced the sidewalk between our front entrance and our driveway with pavers. They did an outstanding job. I am sure they could have saved some time with a simpler pattern, but choose to create a beautiful design instead. I could not recommend them more highly. A great job.
— Fred and Jean Eaton
Dave and the crew were great. They were professional and did over and beyond what I expected, I couldn't be happier with their work. They fit me into their busy schedule just so my 2 boys could enjoy and be safe around or new pool which speaks volumes about the people and company that they are. I can't thank them enough and recommend them to everyone I talk too.
— Tim Keefe
#1 Stonescaping just completed a huge project in our front yard. This involved a new front porch, walkway, stone lamppost and mailbox. They addressed trouble spots, such as poor lighting, drainage and improperly spaced steps. Our perennials were incorporated with new shrubs, creating a unique entranceway. We enjoy working with them because they always take into account our personal style and apply their expertise and creative skills to the project. This is the third major project they have completed for us. They are honest and take great pride in their work. We highly recommend them...
— Ann and Gar Lala
Dave and #1 Stonescaping were referred to us by our current landscaper. We have a beautiful bluestone patio in a lovely home in Delmar, NY that over time and possibly due to incorrect initial installation has changed and was puddling water in the wrong places and we were generally just unhappy with the way it looked. Dave and his crew (Chuck and Lt. Dan) came in and totally converted our patio. They came up with great ideas and given our budget managed to fit in everything we wanted and preserve our ability to grow with the initial plan in the future. They filled an eye-sore of a water feature and corrected all the nuisance and dangerous water issues with proper drainage. Removing every piece of bluestone and documenting its original placement so it could be replaced - they repaired the sub-surface and relayed the stone. But not before recognizing and dealing with some serious drainage issues along the edge and in the window-wells of the basement - they dug drainage ditches laid unbelievable drainage and diverted it 60 feet away from my home - it is incredible how awesome it is. The patio is incredible and perfectly set with no weeds beautiful polymeric sand joints and the value we have in the bluestone can now be appreciated as we spend more time out there now that it is so nice. As an added bonus Dave had Chuck and Dan go out and hand-pick fieldstone from a quarry to build a beautiful fire-pit which is the showpiece of the patio. By the way - Dave also rebuilt a very large waterfall in a different area of our property - installing lights and re-designing the waterfall - which had been dangerously falling prior to his arrival - now it is better than ever and we are often complimented on the patio and the waterfall - but everyone loves the fire-pit. Pictures can't do it justice - we really love the work he did - well worth what we paid and more. Dave, Chuck and Lt. Dan felt like family the whole time they were here - pleasant to work with and speak to and just great people to do business with. Our highest recommen
— Steven and Alexandria Sanchez
As new homeowners, we bought our new home with the idea that it was going to be in our lives for a long time. We wanted to see our family grow and enjoy the house we always dreamed of. Part of that dream was having an area where we could enjoy our yard and be able to entertain our family and friends. Dave, Chad and Dan made this a reality. From the very beginning their professionalism and expertise were second to none. They understood our expectations, but also our budget. They created a wonderful outdoor living space that went beyond our expectations. From the quality of stone work to the attention to details, their work exemplified craftsmanship. In an area where stone workers are abundant we recommend #1 Stonescaping to anyone who asks or see our beautiful patio. Thank you Dave, Chad and Dan.
— Matt Sloane
My wife and I had a 30 yr old side front entry walkway replaced with new pavers professionally designed and installed by #1 stonescape. We are thrilled with the results. Dave and his crew did an excellent job and the project was competively priced! The new walkway in my opinion improves the curb appeal of our home and therefore has a positive impact on our home's value. Thanks
— Daniel West
We started out having Dave and the guys put in a patio. Then we added a pathway to the back yard shed. They did such a great job we had them resurface our front stairs, put in a new walkway in the front yard and redo all our landscaping. I Highly recommend #1 Stonescaping. They were very professional yet they took the time to personally go over what was being done and how to care for everything. Now I can enjoy sitting out in my backyard! Thanks guys!
— Denise Conroy
Working with Dave and his crew was a great experience. Dave offered great suggestions and ideas and was flexible when I changed my mind and helped greatly when I could not make decision. He was receptive to our ideas and used our ideas in the design. I was able to be hands-on when I wanted to be and Dave took me to the nursery on several occasions to pick out the plants and trees. The crew was always on time and great guys to work with and left the work area spotless at the end of the day. We are thrilled with the patio and the fire pit as it is a work of art. We would not hesitate to recommend Dave and his crew to our friends and family for any landscaping/hardscaping projects.
— Julie Macri
Great work! Our front lawn was in need of serious help and Dave and company transformed it into a work of art! Nice job - would highly recommend these guys!
— Mark & Judy Werner
I have had the privilege of working with Dave and his team on 3 major projects over past several years. The outstanding quality, craftsmanship, attention to detail and creativity one recieves by becoming a client of Dave's is hard to come by these days. As a bonus, you get honesty, reliability and above all else, integrity. That's hard to beat in anybody's book!!"
— John Sano
We had a large amount of landscaping and a fire pit feature completed for us. This crew went above and beyond to ensure we had a great experience and a terrific product. They did the job in a professional manner and were creative with the materials we had on the property. They created an impressive fire pit, a terrific lawn and a stone picnic area for my kids (a complete, and creative, surprise). I recommend this company and crew as they are the most professional folks I have come across in years.
— John Frederick
This company did a great job! They were all very hard workers and couldn't have been any nicer. They paid attention to detail and took pride in their work. The outcome was beautiful.
— Cindy Phillips
Dave and his crew did a top notch job with our front walkway! While the original "walkway" had turned into a cracked, subterranean path, the new stone work actually gives our old home some true curb appeal.

I would say that you should "work" with these guys on your next outdoor project, but work isn't the right word: They'll do all the work for you. It didn't take much time both for the actual work to be completed and for the fantastic design to become a reality.
— Chris Reach
Dave came highly recommended for his great stonework and reliability and it quickly became apparent why. He spent time discussing ideas and options. He guided me to a solid design that will last for many years. He made sure I truly loved the choices before he set them in stone (pardon the pun).

When I began this project, I had only selected the base stone. It mwas Dave's vision and expertise that created the final product....an absolutely gorgeous patio. He was wonderful to work with. He was very respectful of my neighbors and cordial to everyone. When he said he was going to be there, he was and completed the job earlier than scheduled.
— Shelly Brosen
Very simply put - we are more than satisfied with the work done by Dave and his staff. The design of our yard and patio are special and it was a pleasure working with these men. Dave listened to what we hoped to achieve and offered ideas that worked out perfectly. When we proudly showed our friends the work that had been done their comment was "a picture of this belongs in the Better Homes & Gardens magazine". What a compliment to Dave and the staff.
— Tom & Laura Robertson
We contacted Dave thinking we knew what landscaping design we wanted for the front of our home.Dave came to us, listened patiently, offered design suggestions and did not pressure us to make a quick decision which we appreciated. His patience and honest opinions,based on many years of experience, made us feel very comfortable in having him design and construct the area in front of our home. The end result is awesome. The curb appeal has been greatly enhanced and should only get better as the plantings grow and flourish. Working with Dave from start to finish without an intermediary was an added benefit. Few business owners/contractors will walk you through the entier process. Dave's vision, honesty, sense of humor, attention to detail, and staying on schedule were key for us in having this work done. We will definately contact Dave next year to move forward with designing other areas of our property. Hell of a job! Thanks.

It was May, and as usual my dad was looking to make our home more beautiful than it already is. He was expanding our pool area with Lyme stone bordering where the new fence would be. Then tragedy took mplace and my mother unexpectedly passed away. Left heartbroken and lost with questions and asking why... The new project was put on hold. Then after a little time my father decided that he would in mfact finish it for no other reason than it would give him something to do. Stonescaping came to do the patio, and did an amazing job! Their professionalism and hard work surpasses all expectations. They created a beautiful patio where my mother can shine down on and watch her grandchildren grow. We thank you for making helping to make this dream come true!
— Ashley Maki
We recently had a very small (by comparison to other projects) job done by Dave. Several large limestone pieces were placed to define a corner of our front plantings. They look excellent, as if they have been there for years. Dave has a great eye, definitely knows his work and takes pride in it as well. We will have him back to expand on this job for sure!
— Pat Shannon
In late July 2011 the guys from #1 Landscaping did some landscaping and stone work for us. These were among the hottest days in memory and these guys busted their butts removing an old concrete porch, as well as ripping out some of our ancient evergreens. After the demolition they proceeded to build a little landscape wall and add new shrubs and plants. They also built a new stone porch and resurfaced the other one. All of their work was outstanding and has improved the look of our house greatly.It was a complete face lift to the outside of our house and we are extremely happy with the results. Our thanks to the staff at #1 for a fantastic job!!!!

The front of our house needed a facelift and with Dave's suggestions and attention to detail, it has been transformed. Refacing front steps, new supporting pillars, an attractive new walkway and great landscaping make it a place you are proud to come home to. Great service, hard work and fabulous results provided by a professional, conscientious and friendly crew.

Dave Lawler, Ed, Chuck and Dan installed a new patio, fireplace, benches and landscaped my entire backyard. The end result was amazing! I would recommend this crew to anyone as they are professional, insightful, a pleasure to work with and trustworthy. They know the business, are fair, they listened to me as their customer and directed me when I needed their eye and guidance with my backyard project. The time they spent on my backyard recreating the outdoor living space will continue to pay me back as an investment for years. I would gladly show anyone needing a reference what they've done to improve my home. This is the second time I've had work done. In 2006, my front yard was landscaped and the curb appeal has made this the nicest property on my street. Thank you to a great group of guys who've made my outdoor space that much more enjoyable! It was a true home makeover. You're the best in my book and in the business as far as I'm concerned!

We have been clients of Dave and Ed for several years and have not only been thoroughly pleased with their work, but find them easy to deal with. Last year they completed a stone patio and deck for us and we really love the end results! Even after this harsh winter, it looks as great as when they completed it last June. We always feel that our personal lifestyle- with grandchildren and a dog sharing the space- is taken into account when designs are created. They are punctual and have completed jobs when the weather and other house projects have made it difficult. We highly recommend them.

We are extremely pleased with the workmanship, design and quality of our patio transformation. We extended our bluestone patio and created an outdoor grill/bar that is perfect for entertaining.

Through the vision of Dave and his workers, we trusted their experience and professional work and are very happy with the end result.
