We had a great experience with Campbell & Ferrera! Peter designed an amazing backyard and front improvements, provided great advice and suggestions along the way. His design is not only functional; it is also beautiful especially our pollinator garden! Throughout the process, he was very helpful, answering our questions and making tweaks to the plan as we worked through our options and installation. The project started on time and the lead, Oscar, kept the project moving ahead of schedule. Even after completion, Peter came to check in and answer all of our questions. It was a wonderful experience with a local company. We will definitely go back for any future projects!

Chris Myers was great to work with. He designed a plan that included native plants as I requested, he was responsive to my questions and concerns. The installation crew was professional and helpful. I would use Campbell & Ferrara again.

We are very pleased with the beautiful stone seat wall built for us by Campbell Ferrara. From the initial contact through the site visit, estimate and installation, it was a smooth and pleasant experience. We loved working with landscape designer Jeff Trafidlo who shared our vision for improving this corner of our property. Thank you!

We had a great experience with Campbell and Ferrara. You can see the before and after photos. They worked with us to get what we wanted in terms of getting fruit trees and berry bushes, with a bit of lawn for the dog and areas for planting beds. They did an admirable job at working through solution to stay on a tight budget. We look forward to working with them again.

Chris Myers worked with us on building our fence and it looks AMAZING. Better than we expected, and we had high hopes! Chris came very highly recommended to us by a neighbor. And It’s easy to see why right away. Chris worked around our busy schedules and not only listened to our specific wants and needs, he made sure they actually got done. Can’t say enough wonderful things about Chris and everyone else I dealt with at Campbell and Ferrara. Absolutely will not hesitate to work with them again.

What a great experience! From the moment I entered the retail store to buy a bonsai, to asking a question, a minute later, talking to a designer, Jeff Trafidlo, to him coming to my house; to less than two weeks later- my dream realized! Just a stairway, up my hill, so I don’t fall and die. That’s all I wanted. They didn’t talk me into a full landscape remodel; yes it could use it. He listened to me, explained the process, assured me that he was on the same page about how and what I wanted. His background was impressive as he guided us through the process. Not a big deal- you might think- but to us it is! This company has more than earned their stellar reputation. And thanks to Jeff, we have our amazing stairway!! Thank you!!
