Chris Myers of Campbell and Ferrara designed and installed my dream backyard. Throughout the whole process Chris and his team were professional, timely, and exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend Chis and Campbell and Ferrara!

We interviewed several companies before deciding on Campbell and Ferrara. The communication from our first inquiry to the completion of the project was outstanding.We met with Chris Myers the landscape architect and he listened to exactly what we were asking for, shared some thoughts and designed exactly what we were hoping for in the end. He was open to suggestions and came up with great solutions should situations arise. He was very attentive to the details. He was terrific to work with.Allen the project manager was great. His philosophy was that he wanted us to really love the work he and his crew executed in the end and make it like he would want for himself. He accomplished that! His crew was professional, friendly and cleaned up everything at the days end.There is without a doubt we chose the right company to install a patio, putting green, waterfall feature, firepit area all lit with the perfect landscape lighting! Campbell and Ferrara delivered knowledgeable employees, exceptional quality, on time, and on budget.We look forward to enjoying our backyard oasis! Thank you, Chris and Allen.

Chris Myer was the landscape designer who really thought outside the box to create a totally transformed front yard area for us. We added a patio with a seat wall, and walkway between existing driveway and sidewalk that totally transforms how we use the space now. Chris is the native plant designer, which was very important to us as we expand and replace traditional plantings with Virginia natives. The Campbell and Ferrara crews worked as a great team to get all this accomplished before winter sets in. We are very pleased with the results, as are all the neighbors. 🙂

Chris Myers showed up to save the day after an ice storm trashed our property. He had a vision and to see it completed, wow!Thanks Myers! We love our landscape!

fantastic all the way around. We had a flagstone patio done as well as front and backyard landscaping. They have a deliberate process that delivers a superior result. I was consistently impressed by Peter Rhyne and his team. Once we were on the schedule (with plenty of advance notice) there were no changes to the start date and no delays (other than weather) to the project.Most of all the crew that worked every day were professional craftsmen that took time to do good work. They were meticulous, kept a clean and orderly project and communicated well with us.We will use them again, even if it's just a small project.

Peter and his team were a pleasure to work with. Peter created a thoughtful design to reimagine our side yard and worked with us to make changes to the design to meet our budget. We did this project in conjunction with a separate major home renovation. When the home renovation was experiencing delays and had the potential to delay the outdoor project, Peter stepped in quickly to source materials and complete masonry work that was not originally within the scope of his project to keep both projects running smoothly. From the first meeting to the final walkthrough, communication was excellent. The work was completed on time (and even early), and the final product is stunning. We would gladly use Campbell and Ferrara for any of our landscaping/hardscaping needs.

Campbell & Ferrara did an excellent job working with me to make my backyard lower maintenance, more functional, but still beautiful! Peter Rhyne put together a design that reduced the amount of weeding and mulching required to keep my backyard looking great but still gives me room to garden and enjoy a variety of flowers and plants - I wanted a mix of the two and he provided! The crew did a great job bringing the vision to life and were always punctual. It was very easy to work with the entire team and I would definitely call them again for future landscaping projects!

Pretty open place for delivery. I had some stone pots and yard decorations to deliver. They opened the gate at 7:30am, but got real busy with customers fast. Took about 2 hrs before they could unload me, but no worries. All good

Working with Campbell and Ferrara was easy. I worked with Peter Rhyne, who was extremely responsive and provided me with detailed designs that reflected our discussions. When it came time to do the work, the team worked all day, often past 5pm, in order to finish in a timely manner. The final product, an outdoor fireplace, looks great and fits in with the house and yard. I am happy to recommend them.

We have worked with Campbell and Ferrara over the course of many years, most recently with Peter Rhyne...Peter has been so patient and kind with us as we address aging trees and shrubs in our landscape and add some new, fresh foliage...We are grateful to have Peter as a resource for all things green and colorful!
