I visit the store when I need to drop off "overgrown" plants: succulents, air plants, string of hearts, etc. Thank You!

We hired Campbell Ferrara (through Chris Myers) for a major reconstruction of the deck, hardscaping, and lighting on the sides and back of our house. It was a large project that took several months but was completed on schedule (despite several expansions of the job by us) and with excellent work. This was also an especially tricky project because there is limited access to the sides and back of our house where the work was being done. Chris did a great job of communicating what was happening when and what decisions we needed to make, as well as managing subcontractors such as the electricians and deck company. And they were very flexible in accommodating several changes that we requested over the course of the project. We now have extremely high-quality flagstone paths surrounding the sides and back of the house, plus a great looking trex deck and new outdoor lighting throughout the property. Terrific work all around!

In July 2020 Chris Meyer met with me to discuss a tree installation and a walkway. Chris was knowledgeable, very helpful with suggestions, on time and communications were excellent. As a bonus Chris Is a nice person to do business with.I had a three foot x twenty five foot brick walkway installed within two days, and a Dogwood tree installed. Chris sent a sample of the brick color and design. The dogwood variety chosen was excellent for my space. There is an HOA where I live, Chris was patience throughout the approval process. The install crew was efficient, cleaned up and again, nice to work with.The dogwood tree looked to be struggling, Chris assured me the tree is fine after I sent photos. letting me know the tree is in shock. Once the tree is acclimated to its new surroundings all should be well. Hoping this is the case, but I believe if the tree doesn’t snap out of it Chris would make it right based on my experiences with Chris and Campbell & Ferrera.At this point my experience was positive, I would have Chris back for my next outdoor improvements without a doubt.Update: the DogWood tree is healthy and beautiful, Chris was right.2023 update- Chris again came out to do a Spring cleanup to include weed control and mulching. Now into August the weeds are at bay, mulch looking fresh.

Excellent experience from initial contact, to estimate/work order, to work execution, to final inspection/review! Had a townhouse backyard patio re-leveled and improved, with additional drainage installed, following some long term root and water “movement”. Found ways to efficiently reduce time and cost. No pressure, friendly and professional experience-would 100% recommend and use again!

Peter Rhine is excellent. First visit, he explained the best and most economical way to do pavers for the back patio. Work was scheduled and completed in time, including extra work that i requested while they were working on site.

After years of waiting to update the hard scape in my backyard garden, I contacted Campbell & Ferrara since they had installed my landscaping in the late 1980”s. Chris Myers and the team was amazing and I am so pleased with the work that I can’t stop admiring it! I love my garden and am beyond picky when it comes to anything affecting it. Chris stayed with me, redoing plans, carefully explaining what was going to happen and patiently answering my zillion questions. He never lost his cool and took time to walk the job with me and explain everything. Abelio and the crew who did the work were EXCEPTIONAL. They are masters at creating dry stack stone walls and installing flagstone steps and walkways. My purse may be empty but my heart is full when I see the beautiful work. Great work and professional workmanship.

We just finished our landscaping project today and my wife and I are both very pleased with the results. There were three main parts of the project; installation of a bamboo barrier to keep out bamboo from the GW Parkway, removal of old plants and installation of new plants in our landscape and installation of landscape low voltage landscape lighting. We worked with Chris Myers, who designed a very good plan following our initial meeting and presented it professionally including a booklet he created showing pictures of the plants he had selected and alternative plants we could use. As a note, we had just moved from Florida and weren't familiar with the plants that would work best in NOVA.He modified his initial plan from our meeting and came up with a design that we used. Their crew of four arrived at 8:00am on the scheduled start date and worked very hard on day one removing a rock retaining wall, digging the trench for the bamboo barrier and removing a lot of bamboo roots. It was tough work in the rocky and heavy clay soil. They continued their good work throughout the week installing the plant material, landscape lighting, moving a few existing plants/trees into the new design, watering everything in, putting down the mulch and cleaning up. Communication with Chris worked well and the changes we made during the project were documented in change orders so there wasn't any misunderstanding. We did have some "scope creep" as Chris called it. They finished today, just as Chris said they would. I'm pleased we selected Campbell & Ferrara for our project and enjoyed working with Chris, We couldn't be happier with the results. I'm looking forward to tonight so I can see the landscape lighting. Everything was done professionally and their crew was friendly and very hardworking. Their operations and results show why they've been in business since 1945.

I stopped in today to get my two orchids repotted. Michael helped me and gave me so much information about how to care for these plants. Excellent service! I will definitely be back. If you want someone who is knowledgeable and provides superior customer service I strongly recommend Campbell and Ferrara.
We wanted to redesign our front landscape and reached out to Campbell & Ferrara based on their great reviews. They did not disappoint! I can be very particular which makes me a tough customer and Chris Meyers was accommodating and patient. We're super pleased with the final result!
