I have hired Campbell & Ferrara for several projects based on the recommendation of a friend (and the great reviews). I've been very happy with the work - I keep coming back for more! I've had some drainage work done to help fix my eroding yard, followed by several stages of greenscaping. The lawn looks healthier each year, and the plants are getting fuller. I'm excited with each season as more of the plants mature and start blooming. Neighbors have stopped by to compliment our yard, and a contractor who came by the house for unrelated work mentioned that he thought we had the nicest yard he had seen in our neighborhood.Most of the work was designed and managed by Karin Reber, who's awesome. She has helped me design a garden with mostly native plants, and native landscaping is clearly something she is passionate about. She is professional, responsive, and thorough with her work, and just lots of fun to work with. I'm planning to gradually expand on the work we've done so far, and I will keep asking for Karin.

Great results! From design to finished product, the entire process was timely and professional. Added touches for things not originally envisioned were greatly appreciated. Very pleased with the outcome!

I love working with Campbell & Ferrara. Thus far they have designed and completed three hardscape projects as well as a master design for a longer-term transformation of my entire yard to a native plant garden.One project corrected a dry-stacked wall that another company did but that was not done well; one completed my front door surround and approach, and the third was a new stacked wall. Every aspect of each project was superb: the material selection; the knowledge and experience of the design folks; their communication with me on scheduling and design adjustments, both welcoming my input and offering their expertise; the craftsmanship and professionalism of the installation crews, and the beauty of the finished projects. All top notch as well as enjoyable. The completed projects have transformed not only the look of my outside areas, but also my enjoyment of them in day to day use.More projects are in the planning stages, and I feel confident planning them in large part because Campbell & Ferrara will be the firm I am fortunate to be working with on them.I recommend Campbell & Ferrara wholeheartedly and without reservation

We are thrilled with our in-ground lighting system designed and installed by Campbell and Ferrara. Thomas designed a beautiful layout, Allan provided insights based on his long experience, and Justin and his crew completed the installation in one day, taking great care working around our existing irrigation and drainage systems. We will definitely use the Campbell and Ferrara team for our future landscaping projects.

Chris Myers worked with me to design landscape improvements to meet both my budget and goal of increasing native plants. We had many discussions fine tuning the proposal and he was there each day of installation. When he was offsite the crew was friendly and focused. Can't wait for the spring to enjoy the results!

Campbell & Ferrara did AMAZING work transforming the landscape of my new house. It was a big project and the end-result is absolutely beautiful - front yard and backyard. It was such a pleasant experience working with everyone at this company from the very beginning to the very end. I will be a forever client. My designer Chris Czech totally got my vision and worked so collaboratively with me throughout the process. She is incredibly knowledgeable, professional and energetic. She made this project fun! Love her. The team that was here doing the work each day was exceptional too. They were so diligent and went over and beyond my expectations. I simply cannot say enough good things about my experience with Campbell & Ferrara. Great people, great company. The BEST!

We had let much of our yard go, and wanted to utilize our small back yard in a way that allowed us to enjoy it more. Thus, we decided to put in a patio. Chris Myers came up with a very nice design, and despite my trepidation regarding costs, we agreed since the concept he created was so lovely.They finished more quickly than I imagined, yesterday.The crew was fantastic, and we appreciate their hard work to implement Chris's design. It was amazing to watch the daily progress, and see how they creatively put the stone wall and patio together.I know we will enjoy this patio and landscaping for years, so it is all well worth the investment.

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!
