In the Fall 2014, I decided it was time to do something about my mushroom infested and boring front and back yards. I asked around and Luke’s name kept coming up as an exceptional horticulturalist. I met with him and was immediately impressed with his helpful manner and extensive knowledge. What I did not know was how organized he would be. Within a week or so, I was handed a proposal with each plant and flower noted; where it would go; what type of mulch could be used; with pictures of the flowers/plants; and with the costs laid out clearly along with the scheduling of payments for the project. Other related matters he addresses was the installation of a new paver driveway, front entry, walkway, and back patio. He also installed a new irrigation system. However it does not end here. He gave me an estimate of when he might be able to start and put me on his waiting list, and he was able to start earlier than he thought. I have never seen such an efficient work crew. They arrived, worked hard for many hours, fixed any unanticipated problems, and cleaned up after themselves, which I have learned from my house renovation is not common. Luke was helpful, kind, and patient throughout this process; he was very patient when he had to go twice with me to the store to select my backyard fountains because I was anxiously waffling on which ones to buy. I can say with great enthusiasm that my experience with him was the best of all the contractors that I dealt with across my renovation. I intend to use him for twice a year cleanup. I recommend him without any reservations and with great enthusiasm.

I cannot recommend Luke and his team at Haymond Horticulture highly enough! Luke has been our key contractor as we have undertaken a major backyard renovation and transformation over the past two years. His team has completed every project on time and on budget, from installation of an expansive patio/pool deck, lighting and landscaping (including design), and construction of an outdoor kitchen and fire pit. Luke is head and shoulders above the rest when it comes to knowledge, customer service, creativity, and integrity. He and his crew are meticulous, respectful and very easy to work with. His collaborative nature made life much easier when it came to coordinating with other contractors (pool builder, plumbers and electricians), and his experience and forethought made all the difference in helping us make important decisions in creating the outdoor “resort” we envisioned. The end result has exceeded all of our expectations – thank you, Haymond Horticulture!
