We recently had our front yard designed and installed by Bret-Mar. We had worked directly with Sharon. She followed up on the project from start to finish. Our vision, due to her knowledge, expertise, and professionalism provided us with a front yard that we are so proud of. It truly exceeded our expectations.

I called Bret-Mar for an estimate for landscaping around my bare patio. I didn't really know what I wanted to do, I just wanted some privacy screening for the hot tub, and around the patio. Sharon had great suggestions for what to plant and where, showed me lots of photos to help visualize the end result. I asked her for suggestions on the side and front of my house as well. The estimate for the patio was pretty good, so I decided to add on the rose garden on the side, and replace a small evergreen tree in front with a weeping cherry tree. They did everything in one day, despite the heat and a sudden storm! They planted aborvitae in the hot tub area, a beautiful Prariefire crab tree, surrounded by shrubs, put an outcropping stone step off the patio, and moved an ornamental tree and some perennials around the rest of the patio, and mulched everything. It all flows together beautifully! I would recommend Bret-Mar to everyone!

Provider has done annual clean-up/maintenance since initial full landscaping of property 10 years ago. As usual, the results were excellent, bushes nicely trimmed, mulch perfectly placed, garden edged crisply. Delighted with results.

We have been more than pleased with everything that we have had Bret-Mar do in our landscaping. We would recommend this company in a heart-beat. If you are looking for quality work, professionalism from all personnel and just an overall great experience, this is the company to contact.

We have been using Bret-mar Landscaping for the past ten years. At first it was for landscape design and then for spring and fall clean up. We are now using them for year round maintenance and we couldn't be happier with their service and attention to detail. In the past we used different services and they fell short in one way or another. Not so with Bret-Mar. The entire team from the owners to the crew pay attention to the needs of your property as if it were their own. We couldn't be happier.

I've been a customer of Bret-Mar Landscaping for the past 3 years and appreciate their attention to detail in all the work they do. I've worked with other landscapers in the past and have always had a punch list of things that weren't done right that required them to come back out to correct them. This isn't the case with Bret-Mar. Ashley is a pleasure to work with. We meet early in the Spring and discuss the plan for the year and have regular touch points before the crew arrives on site. I highly recommend the landscape maintenance program. It allows me to spend more time with my family by taking care of the routine landscape chores that are done throughout the year that would have taken me several weekends to complete. It also allows me to focus on the gardening that I really enjoy doing. Thanks Ashley and the Bret-Mar team!

Can't say enough about what a great job they did on our yard this year. Ashley is wonderful, a true artist! She went over and above our expectations. I would highly recommend this company. Our house looks great!

— Raymond G.

Thank you for my mid-summer clean up. My yard looks amazing again! Highly recommend Bret-Mar to anyone in need of landscape design or upkeep.

— Edward C.

Bret-Mar Landscape has been taking care of our landscape for about 4 years now. They do a professional job and are always aware of our wants and needs. The landscaping always looks great with them taking care of it. Highly recommended!

We had quite a large project and our backyard was on a hill with a lot of trees, we really had no idea what to do with it. We had some ideas but that‘s about it, I went online and found Bret-Mar and had Sharon come out to look, she took her time to listen to my husband and me and what ideas we had, she listened and what her and Ashley came up with was nothing but amazing. Then her husband Kurt and Son Adam and their whole crew were amazing, we now have our own vacation getaway in our own backyard. Don't look anywhere else, these people are amazing, they now feel like family.

— Jim G.

You could not have been a better partner to see my vision realized. Thank you for creating my dream yard. I waited a long time for this and I couldn’t be happier!

Thank you, very much for my beautiful landscaped front, back, and all sides of my custom home. I remember when only two years ago I was referred to you by my architect for a landscaping plan. I remember calling many landscapers but none of the landscapers I called were certified landscape architects. I was excited and very pleased to find out Bret-Mar not only has one but two landscape architects.

Sharon the owner planned, designed, and implemented to perfection with her husband Kurt the other landscape architect the plantings, bushes, flowers and trees. They are both involved from the beginning to even making many visits to my home during the planning, designing, and installation. My backyard patio has a sitting wall but the flooring is like walking outside to another country. All my ideas and dreams for this home were materialized with their assistance. The landscaping compliments the custom home design. Everyone who has seen my house and the lovely landscaping always asks for the name and telephone number of Bret-Mar.

I would refer both Sharon and Kurt to anyone in a second. Their installers were polite, hardworking, and professional. Please contact me if you would like to see my landscaping or would like to know how my positive experience can assist you in hiring these wonderful, honest, and hardworking people.

Before any more time goes by, we wanted to take a few minutes to let you know how pleased we are with the landscaping you recently completed at our home. Following our addition and renovation, our property was a mess and we were anxious to clean up our destroyed backyard and our overgrown front yard. We consider it providential that we heard of your excellent work and we couldn’t be happier with everything you did from start to finish!

Sharon, it was always a pleasure to talk to you. You are an excellent listener and communicator. Thank you, too, for always knowing the right questions to ask to achieve the results we wanted. We appreciate the creativity, meticulous attention to detail, and professional knowledge you brought to our project along with the flexibility to make adjustments during the work. We felt from the start that we had engaged in a collaborative effort with your firm.

Kurt, thank you for your expertise and attention to detail. When we left for work each day, we knew our project was in good hands and that you were always looking out for our best interests. I would often see you and Sharon consulting about landscaping choices which had been made, and when you needed to make a change, it was always done with our input and preferences in mind.

Bret-Mar has proven to be a reliable, conscientious and imaginative firm to work with. At some point in the process, we sensed your attention, Sharon and Kurt, to our project couldn’t have been greater than you would have given if it was your own home. Thank you. You run a business that is rare in today’s market. We will not hesitate to recommend you to our family and friends, and we look forward to continuing to work with you on the maintenance of our property.

I just read your mission statement on your web site and you definitely exceeded our expectations with your initial design and execution of the design. When I walked in the garden as Kurt was finishing on the last day it was pure magic. The garden was full of texture and there was something to see around every corner.

I have a story. When some minor work was being completed by Cardiff Industries on the Pergola a few days ago, we found three of the workers sitting on the bench under the Pergola. My wife came out and asked when they will start the work and they responded that they "needed some more relaxing time" because they were enjoying the serenity of the garden and that they felt they were in Europe somewhere. Thank goodness they weren’t being paid by the hour!
