|When we had our house built we dreamed of making
it a home inside and out. We wanted the front yard to be inviting
and the back to be a retreat. Having no knowledge about plants names,
origins and care, we trusted this task to Andrew Forbes. Andrew's
knowledege, education, and creative thought process brought that dream
He sketched a plan similar to that of an architect and blew us away
with his vision. His professional team came out and brought the plans
to life. The position of the shrubery, trees and foliage complimented
the placement of our house on our lot. Andrew constructed our back
patio which has served as our summer dining room, party place, and
mini vacation destination. One of our more recent additions was our
flat rock front entry path. This has added character and charm to
the front of the home and always draws compliments from guests and
The "follow through" is one of the personal care perks we
appreciate and depend upon. Every Spring and Fall, Andrew contacts
us to notify us he is available to do our seasonal weeding, removal
of last season overgrowth and refresh the mulch. He also does seasonal
floral planting for a pop of fresh color. Andrew is professional,
trustworthy, thorough, and courtious while carrying out his craft.
We will continue to refer Andrew to friends and family.
|"We recently had work done at our house by
Andrew and his team. I cannot even express how pleased we are with
the outcome. It has completely surpassed our expectations. Our front
yard has been transformed into a space that I feel proud to own, but
more importantly a space that I love to look at! Our neighbors cannot
believe the difference the new plantings and walkway make our house
look. Andrew and his team are completely professional and a pleasure
to have working in your yard. My number one advice to anyone who is
considering having work done at their house is to let Andrew use his
creativity and not to micro-manage him. His ideas are amazing and
it is very obvious that he is someone who loves his work."

|I would like to comment briefly about Andrew Forbes
and Forbes Landscaping. I personally have known Andrew for over twenty
years, and have personally observed (and been the beneficiary of)
his terrific work ethic and all of his other outstanding traits. My
family and I have used Andrew for many years for all of our home landscaping
and related and specialty needs. We have recommended him to others.
And we have used certain of his other services (notably, snow and
ice removal and winter parking lot and sidewalk maintenance) at home
and also at a restaurant in which we are involved. Andrew has always
performed on time, and has always performed with superior workmanship
and quality.&n bsp; He cares about what he does; he is reliable
and honest; he is a pleasure to work with; and he “goes the
extra step” to be sure he meets and exceeds expectations. We
would happily recommend Andrew without hesitation and without qualification

|"Andrew has a great eye for what looks good.
I liked what he did so much the first time around that when I moved
to my new home, I immediately called him to provide an extensive plan
which included a total re-design of the plantings, stone work and
lighting which looked amazing from day one. From the quality of the
plantings used to the professionalism of his crew, I highly recommend
Forbes Land Design. And from past experience, I can be sure everything
will hold up over time and look better and better each season."
|I hired Andrew Forbes (Forbes Landscaping) several
years ago for a garden design and a follow through with the planting
of this design. I was extremely pleased and have hired Andrew every
spring since to expand on this design. He is a master at combining
plant material with fences, pergolas, trellises, ponds, etc of which
I have all of the above. He has created a wonderful design for my
yard and has a real passion for his work. In addition, he is a most
pleasant and hard working young man. I recommend him without reservation.
You will be happy that you selected Forbes Landscaping.
|The reason we’re so pleased about the work
Forbes Landscaping because of the vision Andrew brought to the table.
He brought great ideas and then executed them flawlessly, we are extremely
happy with the new look of our home. Andrew followed the timelines
we agreed on closely, and was diligent in all follow up as well- from
blueprints through to cleanup.
