“Great work, great guys on the job and great communication.
A very hands on owner, Ivan.”
“Great Lakes is just a wonderful company. Ivan and his team truly take care of their customers. The entire process of re-landscaping my backyard patio and deck area was a pleasure from start to finish. All involved were responsive and truly incredible.”
“Ivan, Jeremy, and crew at Great Lakes: We held a BEAUTIFUL party in our newly refurbished backyard the other day and got rave reviews from all of our guests. The gabions were of particular interest… I’m hoping you get some new business based on what people saw . . . especially those that had seen the condition/layout of our yard before! We are truly enjoying our new living space. Thanks so much, especially to your hardworking crew that did the physical labor – they were awesome; their abilities, their attitude and more. I know we still have a few plants to tweak but I have every confidence in your customer service. If you’re as pleased as we are, feel free to add us to your reference list and you have our permission to bring clients around to view – just be sure the gate is secured when you leave!! Thanks so much.”

“Just a quick note to let you know we really like what you did with the pots in the backyard. The guys did a very nice job with the flowers and clean up.
The place looks very nice, indeed.”
“The new plants look fantastic. The backyard should be used
for referrals for you as I am very proud of it.”
“Your guys were out yesterday and did a fantastic job !!! Kathy and I could not be more pleased….especially Kathy and that’s no easy task !! We could not believe how meticulous the guys were and Hector was a joy to work with….he made everything hum. We will be back in touch with you in the spring for more….I noticed in the “booklet” you e-mailed out that you now do cleaning and sealing of decks and that is an item on our list, among others. Thanks again for a wonderful job. Take care and have fun.”
“Dear Ivan, Kathy, and Jeremy, thank you for arranging for the tree in front to be trimmed. We were relieved and happy that it was finally taken care of. We know it has been a busy, crazy, and rainy spring/summer for you, and we remain satisfied Great Lakes Landscape Design fans.”
“Your team did a fantastic job on our backyard. Hector, as always, was wonderful to work with. He engaged Randy and I on making sure we were pleased with the placement of the tree and the flowers in the back and he clarified what was to be done in the front. He also noticed how dry everything in the yard. This caused us to check the sprinkler system and we discovered it was not set to go on every other day. That has now be rectified. We are delighted with the work done by Great Lakes and really appreciate the work you did to design the backyard and your team bringing it to life. Please let the team know how pleased we are with the work done including the routine clean-up. You are very lucky to have such a great group of men on your team.”
“I would only use Great Lakes Landscape Design on my house, and have recommended them to many of my friends. Great service, superior quality, and great care 100% of the time. Simply put, the best.”
