1) "Joel and the crew were an absolute pleasure to work with. From the planning phase to the end of the project, we were kept informed and were part of the process. They and their crew were very hard working and performed their jobs with efficiency and promptness. They got in and got the job done quickly, they cleaned up each day when they went home, and they showed respect to each of our neighbors. We would gladly recommend them to anyone! You just couldn't ask for a better team."
- Erikk and Becky, Albany, Oregon
 
2) "We contacted several landscape companies and asked for a backyard design bid.  In our request we had several issues which we asked the designers to address.  American Landscape was the only one which addressed all of our concerns, and in addition, had by far the best design at the best price.  The job included removal of all selected plants in back, side, and part of the front yard, complete reshaping of all yard contours, digging and preparing a patio bed, installation of pavers for patio, channel drain, dry creek beds with river rock, about 2 tons of large rocks, building up of sculpted mounds, planting of new plants, installing a basalt column water feature, and refurbishing the sprinkler system to move from spray to drip"

From our initial meeting in early spring through completion in mid July our interactions with Joel & crew were highly personable and professional.  When the ground was too wet for them to begin work they kept in touch with us to let us now about weather delays and their predictions for a start date.  They did the work we agreed on and then went beyond that.  When they were not satisfied with the quality of plants or the work as it progressed they replaced plants with others (sometimes more expensive ones) or did the work over again.  The professionalism of the entire crew was outstanding.  They continued checking in regularly during the three weeks of work to make sure we were satisfied and regularly answered our emails when we had questions.  The final result was far superior to what we had anticipated in our best imagination.  Their attention to detail and artistic integrity are of the highest magnitude.  We intend to use them again for additional work in our front yard.  We had underestimated the psychological and emotional impact that a professional, artistic backyard remake would have.  We find ourselves sitting outside much more than before and it has become our escape and contemplation place.

We recommend American Landscape and the superb work without any hesitation!!!

3)"Thank you so much for transforming our yard into an absolute haven - it is so beautiful.  From start to finish, we were so pleased with your hard work, your timeliness and most of all your creativity.  Joel, you gave us a truly beautiful yard and we love it.  Thank you for everything".
-Lynne in Albany
 
 
4)"I moved to Albany 2 years ago and bought a house whose landscaping was worse than non-existent.  The large, hot, treeless back yard was an uneven scrabble of weeds growing from pure clay and rock."
 
"I met Joel from American Landscaping and was impressed with their laid-back, easy-going approach followed by the design plans that incorporated my ideas with Joel's.  I ended up changing the plan several times and was always received with patience and great suggestions.  They very eager to accommodate my budget and I never felt pressured to exceed my limit."
 
"When the work actually started, the American Landscape crew was always punctual, polite and very hard working.  In two miserably hot weeks, my previously horrendous yard was turned into everything I imagined it would be.  Paths wending through elegant bushes and trees; flowering shrubs and an elevated vegetable garden plot to satisfy my addiction to tomatoes...my own private Oregon Gardens."
 
 "The well stationed sprinkler system took the work out of the watering and they set it up so that the following year when I was ready to replace the front yard with a grassless design, the connections were already in place.  I had American Landscape return the following summer and they did an equally amazing job on the front yard."
 
"I have countless strangers knock on my door to inquire about the landscaper I used and I always recommend American Landscape with high praise."
 
Any plant that died or did not winter over the year was replaced with graciousness and speed.  Joel has been a source of information and help over these past 2 years and I would recommend his service to one and all."
-Suzie in Albany
 
5)"My experience with American Landscape has been very positive.  They just completed a project along our side yard, and I couldn't be more pleased.  The work is beautifully done, and I think the plant selection is fantastic."
 
"Joel has been so helpful in identifying new plants to replace those that died in the deep freeze last winter.  He guided us in making decisions about which plants would do well in certain locations and then had the plants put in for us.  I don't know how I could haven chosen the plants without his help."
 
"The crew that does the weekly maintenance is friendly and eager to help.  They are very attentive whenever I have a question or a problem and either solve the problem or contact someone else in the company that can take care of it."
-G.L. from Corvallis
 
6)"The project consisted of removing the vegetation from our back and side yard,smoothing out uneven and rutted ground, addressing a drainage problem, and installing new turf, trees, and an irrigation and drip system.  We are very happy with our new yard!"
 
"The job was labor intensive given the hard dry soil and clay that we have in this area.  The crew attacked the job with remarkable focus and enthusiasm.  Trucks have the company logo and this business has the equipment, man power, and expertise to get the job done.  Hands on owner, Joel, came to outline the new lawn and inform us about the trees."
 
"American's field rep and manager, did an excellent job of helping us make a plan.  He took lots of notes at the initial meeting and the tech (irrigation tech, Jack) gave us an informed explanation on the use and ease of the new timer.  While the job was in progress, William personally came to the site every day and even stopped by after all work was completed to see that things were operating properly."
 
"Courteous crew in red company shirts came ready to work and got after it.  Their processes included careful actions like putting a tarp under dirt that had to be dumped on the roadway, being mindful of neighborhood parking, cleaning up, touching up any area that had to be disturbed, and even doing some extra things we requested."
 
"Great company, great results!"
- Donita in Albany
 
7)"Thank you for doing such a great job on my backyard.  It looks fabulous and the dogs and I are enjoying it!  Your team was so nice and patient through the whole process.  I appreciate how much attention you gave to all the details and keeping my dad and I in the loop.  Neighbors and friends are already asking who did the nice work, and American is definitely getting a high recommendation from us."
- Erin in Albany
 
8)"After many years at our Corvallis home, my wife and I decided to redesign our backyard to include a paver patio.  We selected American Landscape of Albany to do the job.
 
"It was a difficult job because the area was down a flight of stairs, which prevented heavy equipment access and meant everything had to be wheelbarrowed in and out."
 
"Nancy and I are very happy with how the project turned out (and the local deer like it too, as they still visit us and seem to soak up the scenery).  The workers were friendly and accomplished at their trade.  They adhered to industry standards and did not take shortcuts.  Joel made some suggestions, including installation of a drain and the avoidance of a major tree root in addition to creating a very artistic design."
 
"We would certainly recommend this company to anyone wishing to have paver work done."
 - Roger and Nancy in Corvallis
 
9)"Can't say enough about the amazing job that American Landscape did for us.  Turning our untouched overgrown weed backyard into a gorgeous oasis with a dry creek bed, winding paths around trees and plants, beautiful ground cover, beautiful lawn, and an excellent irrigation and drain installation.  From the beautiful design by Joel, to the very hard working crew that did the work, it was a total pleasure watching them make our dream back yard come true!"
- Roger and April in Albany
 
10)"We are enjoying our new outdoor space very much.  Thank you all for the quick and efficient way you got it done.  A special thanks to Joel for your beautiful design."
- Peggy in Albany
 
11)"I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank you for the excellent work on our landscaping project!  To some people it's probably a small thing, but I can't tell you how much joy it brings to come home to a beautiful, pulled together yard after all these years of living with the somewhat haphazard "DIY" look.  We've already received several compliments from visitors and I happily promote you and your company for any landscaping work they might need.  Thanks Again!
- Melissa in Corvallis
 
12)"Our yard had, over the previous year, simply gotten out of hand and we needed help to get the recovery process started.  After considerable research, I found Joel Snyder and American Landscape and Irrigation.  Joel and his crew worked closely with us to ensure the most critical work got done first, and it was done beautifully.  The crew (mostly Doug and Ron, thanks guys!) typically did more in two hours than we managed to do in two weeks!
 
"In addition to weeding, pruning, fertilizing, and other maintenance, we asked Joel to design a nice looking street-side garden.  When they installed it, my expectations were exceeded in every way-- it's been in place for several months now and it still looks great (and it's been easy for us to keep it looking nice).
 
"American Landscape and Irrigation isn't the least expensive landscape service in the area, but they are knowledgeable, hard-working, and deliver top quality service.  Overall, I'd rate them a great value".
- John and Amy in Corvallis
 
13)"Joel - Thank you again for such a quick response on the irrigation leak we had.  I would also like to comment on what wonderful people you have working for you.  I've now had the pleasure of working with Jack several times and he is a really nice guy, easy to talk and work with, very polite, and very efficient.  You hire GREAT people and you all do GREAT work!
- Gary in Albany
 
14)"We met with Joel in May and agreed on a plan, price, and timeline.  The project consisted of a fairly large paver patio with a lot of complex curves.  There was also a pergola structure and fire pit that was part of the project.  The backyard also had some drainage issues so they suggested that we install an independent drainage system both under and around the paver patio to insure that no puddling occurred and that the surrounding lawn drained properly.  From start to finish, there was good communication.  When we raised issues, they were dealt with immediately and to our satisfaction.  The paver patio is absolutely beautiful and of high quality.  Additionally, during the construction of the patio, parts of our lawn were damaged and they fixed it better than it was before.  They also cleaned up after they were done, good as new.  They also did a good job working with the other contractors who built the pergola and fire pit structures.  All this required coordination and they were willing to go the extra mile to make sure everything was done right and that it all worked together.  Both Joel and the rest of the crew are really nice and easy to work with.  True professionals and they made the project fun.  I would highly recommend this company!
