Matt is a great professional to work with. Provides great pricing and quality work for the job we have requested. We had our boring grass filled backyard redesigned and a brick walkway from the side of the house installed.

Professional recommendations and advice were also given even though it wasn't part of the work that he was doing and he made sure to have their job done in a timely manner.

Would definitely hire him for the next project we have planned. — selevengallery, Houzz.com, October, 2015

We hired Matt to design a brick paver patio for us and couldn't be happier with the results! There was so much to do...remove our old deck & concrete patio beneath, level off the back yard, and finally put in our new patio and walkway, but he made sure he stayed on schedule and within budget. Now, this spring we'll be ready with a great outdoor space to entertain and enjoy with the family! We've got plenty more work to be done and he'll be the first we call! — September, 2014

Matt and his team did a great job with our landscaping and came in under budget! He listened to our requests and used his knowledge to pick out great products to make our landscaping look great! He also did our front porch and walkway with pavers that make it look stunning. We will definitely be using his services again in the future as we make more updates to our home. — bethdiviacchi, Houzz.com, July, 2014

Couldn't be happier with our deck install and shrubbery re-arrangement . Matt and his crew were punctual, meticulous and courteous throughout the whole process. We decided to do this project with very little notice and Matt worked us in to his schedule very quickly. I would recommend his company for any landscaping needs.

We believe that Matt provided excellent service at a very reasonable price and recommend his design services without reservation. — July, 2014

We had a great experience with the Garden Guy's. Not knowing specifically what we needed to change but only that we needed a "yard overhaul", Matt was able to give us ideas about which shrubs to use and how to organize everything in a nice layout. They even transplanted existing shrubs to areas that made more sense. We added a fence and a dog run that really have made the yard look beautiful. We have been very happy with how everything turned out. — jessmurphy, Houzz.com, June, 2014

We hired Matthew for two projects and he did a great job on both of them. The first was to create raised beds for a vegetable and herb garden, the second to plant the side beds of our new condo. Both projects were completed very timely, the vegetable garden thrived and his prices were very reasonable. — October, 2013

We built a new house on a teardown lot and wanted to retain some of the existing landscaping while also incorporating substantial new plantings. Matt created a design that seamlessly blended old and new and added lots of color and texture. We especially appreciated Matt's ability to work with some challenging locations (dry shade, etc.). The results are beautiful and will be even more so once the plants reach their mature size.

We believe that Matt provided excellent service at a very reasonable price and recommend his design services without reservation. — January 7, 2014

My fiancée and I recently purchased a house and began the process of making it our own. One of the projects, which are ongoing, is to liven up our backyard. Earlier in the year,  a garden guy planted 50+ flowers/shrubs along the perimeter of the backyard. An additional recommendation was to install a vintage whiskey barrel to catch rainwater. Overall, the look of the backyard has been greatly enhanced and we have received many compliments, especially on the whiskey barrel.

A garden guy is a pleasure to work with, knowledgeable and fair on pricing. Next year, we plan on using him for work along our driveway, as well as the installation of landscape lighting. — May, 2013
