Review by in Frederick, MD
Project: Install Sod
Communication, like others said, is not a strong point... although it was initially to get the quote agreed upon and my deposit. Simple job of laying new sod and a 10 feet radius area of mulch in the corner of my property. The radius arch is not 10 fet (12 feet in one corner, 8 in the other) and the edges is not rounded. If I could attach photos I would. Just beware, if you ask for anything outside of very basic landscaping requests, as well as good communication.

Emerald installed a paver patio, and regraded and fixed another small area in our yard. The quality of the work was outstanding. The pricing was fair and competitive. I took off half a star because their communication could be improved. Would absolutely hire again!

Review by Reva G. in Silver Spring, MD
There is a reason this company is not scored at 5.0! Customer service is terrible and there is a language barrier apparently. I typed out explicit details for my landscaping project with pictures and videos, but the agreement came to me with errors that I had to correct before I signed the Agreement. I was told via phone and email that they could do the simple job I requested, but the errors in the agreement should have been a red flag. The first thing they asked for was 1/3 payment up front before they could do the work. However, not once did they come out to see what needed done on my landscaping project. After they received my deposit, they either had the scheduling young lady act as a go-between, or simply DID NOT ANSWER THE PHONE when I called on numerous occasions. I told the scheduler I wanted my plants planted before the cold set in, but then they came back with "I can get you better plants. I want to remove those [my current hedges] and get others. These are going o be very hard to match and find anything near that size.] This is after ten days of conversation and AFTER they already had my $430 payment up front to start. I couldn't believe they actually used the words "get better plants" when I specifically told them IN WRITING I want 2 hedges to match the ones I already have in the ground. I was very frustrated with them not answering the phone and saying this to me. I asked them to cancel the agreement WHICH WAS BASED ON them providing the service I WANTED. This time they didn't answer the phone when I called, but called right back when I hung up. During this call some guy refused to give back my deposit. I am assuming he's the owner. Then he had his scheduler, Natalie send an email stating I would not receive my deposit and they could revisit my request in the spring if I wanted. There is no way I will ever deal with someone who keeps my money when they cannot provide the service the agreed to in a professional capacity. I would sue if it the lawyer didn't cost more than my deposit!

Review by Darnell P. in Columbia, MD
They gave me a contract and stated all that they would do and I questioned what they had on there and talked to someone and they confirmed they would do everything. Once the workers came they refused to do everything and that it was too much. When I called back about this then they agreed to do everything. I told them that I had problems with deer and I questioned whether they would eat the begonias, they said they wouldn't and the deer the cleaned me out. I questioned about doing some work with stone and I text him and told him I wouldn't do it because it was too much and then he wanted to still charge me for it after I told him I didn't want to. There was just a big problem with communication.

It took more time to get the projected started than I expected but we were very pleased with the end result. Communication could be improved.

Review by in Montgomery Village, MD
Project: Install Brick or Stone Patios, Walks, and Steps
We hired Emerald in mid-May to make numerous repairs to our aging but beloved flagstone walkway. One of the repairs was very complicated, as one of the large stones had broken into four pieces because the foundation underneath had eroded over time. We need a real expert, but we were concerned that contractors would deem the job too small to mess with. Emerald was the most responsive of the companies we reached out to for quotes, and they were reasonable in their quote, in our estimation. Despite the havoc caused by the many rains the past few weeks, Emerald completed the job within three weeks. It turned out better than we could have hoped, and will allow us to avoid a much more costly and likely less appealing replacement. The communications were outstanding throughout, particularly with Peter and Kim at the office. The two guys would did the work were both pleasant and highly skilled. We very much appreciate Emerald and plan to continue using them for future repairs and upgrades.

They arrived at our home quickly and was very prepared to tackle our mulch bed that was overgrown with weed. Now we have 3 beautiful trees with rocks in the front of our home. They were efficient, knowledgable, and polite. We we will reaching out to them in the spring to help maintain this area.

They went above what we wanted. Some of the extra sod they used to make the walkway to our front yard look even better
