Wow! We absolutely love our back yard!

After hiring Greensleeves Landscapes to install a retaining wall with ledger stone, we asked if they could build an outdoor chimney and bbq/bar in our back yard and have the project completed before the holidays.

Toby, (owner) made the whole process simple, easy, and very creative. With his design ideas, and the handling of the permit process, he achieved everything we wanted and finished 5 days ahead of schedule.

The quality and hard work ethic of his employees really made us feel confident in our decision as well as the value received which is specifically reflected in the stone work throughout the project.

Almost every night after work it sure is nice to relax in front of the fire,bbq,and enjoy the climate that we, (and our three dogs Zena, Bullet, and Shadow), have come to enjoy!

We would highly recommend Greensleeves Landscapes for any outdoor project. In fact we hired them for monthly landscape care at our property.

I had worked with the owner of Greensleeves Landscapes, Toby personally for several years now both on the HOA in which I was the treasurer and at my properties.

His pro-active approach and ideas to any of my concerns were handled promptly and without any dilemma and at competitive pricing.

Repair of hardscape, fountain, electrical, pool coping , fencing, and monthly care are just some of the services they provided for me and I have always been completely satisfied.

I don’ think there is anything they can’t do! In fact after the ’97 fires…most of the common areas of the HOA had been destroyed in our community. Toby instantly made a log of plant material, irrigation, & fencing that needed to be replaced. Both he and I negotiated with the insurance companies and had theproject up and rolling within days.

I would refer Toby and his company as the “good egg” in the contracting field and highly recommend histeam for further projects.

After being abandoned by a former contractor, we were left with an 80% completed deck and stair case project. We had spent a small fortune and had unresolved permit issues that were lingering. We were definitely not feeling the love in the back yard!

I was referred to Toby of Greensleeves Landscapes by a fellow teacher and set up an appointment. His ideas were amazing and within a week we had everything rolling again, which made me confident as my husband was leaving for military duty overseas.

Toby handled everything from city permit issues and getting releases to turning a wall into a cascading water feature.

We even hired him back a month later to design and install all the softscape and plantings and were very
satisfied with the results.

My husband and I would highly recommend Greensleeves Landscapes for any type of landscape or hardscape project.

We have known Toby for better than 10 years. During that time, Toby has meticulously cared for our 1½ acre property, keeping it looking “resort like” all year round (the picture to the right under landscape depicts a small piece of our property).

What we like best about Toby is that he treats our property as if it were his own. He is very balanced in his approach making certain that our property always looks great while at the same time attempting to keep the cost of maintaining the property as low as possible.

It also seems to us that he is always at our house, making sure that every detail of making our property look good, is addressed each and every week. Better yet, when we had problems over the years, it has never been too much trouble for Toby to drive to our house and help us fix it, regardless of the time of day or night.

Another thing we really like about him, is that he most often is one step ahead of us when it comes to managing our property resources. For example, I cannot remember a time when it started to rain, even somewhat unexpectedly, when Toby did not have the irrigation system turned off in advance of the rain
(I know because my wife makes me check nearly every time it rains)!

Toby and his crew are also very good at the larger landscape construction projects. During the time we have known him he has done two major jobs of this nature for us. In both cases, he did an outstanding job at a very reasonable price and completed the project on time. If there were any problems, and there might have been one or two small ones, he took care of those immediately.

If you cannot tell, we really value our relationship with Toby. He has taken extremely good care of us over the years. He is way more than your typical landscaper and we highly recommend Toby—he is very good at what he does!
