Great attention for detail

We worked with Root and Stem to overhaul our entire back yard, from a new patio to new plants. Spiro, the owner, was wonderful to work with and had a great eye for what would be appropriate for the space during the planning phase. The work lasted close to 3 weeks, and during that time Spiro was at our house almost daily to check in and make sure we were satisfied with progress and was quick to respond via text or phone. His team and subcontractors were also professional, friendly, and had great attention for detail. After having worked with a couple other landscapers over the years, I’d highly recommend Root and Stem in comparison.

I have been with Root & Stem for 3 years and the service has always been great. Their maintenance crews do a great job and their customer service is impeccable. I’ve done 3 bigger projects with them and I was very happy with the design and installation. I would highly recommend this company.

Dimitry and company did an excellent job on our big new patio. He was always very responsive and responsible through the whole process. I would use him again in an instant.

Tim Dunn

Extremely professional and hard-working

Root and Stem was a great partner for a complete re-do of front and back yard landscaping. The suggestions for the perennials and trees were all spot-on. Yards were graded and sodded, trees, grasses and flowers were planted and mulch placed in all planting areas. The crews are extremely professional and hard-working and all work was done on time and within budget. A wonderful local company with good communication and follow-up.

I’ve never been more impressed!

Dimitry and his team did an amazing job with the landscaping at my rehab project! First off, they did it on a really tight timeline in the peak of spring season. Like unreasonably tight. I don’t recommend asking contractors of any sort for quick turnaround but in this case, I had no choice, and Root & Stem rose to the challenge. Secondly, they were extremely professional in everything they did. From the initial meeting to the landscape architecture meeting and then to install. Everyone who works for them brought their A game and a high-level of professionalism that I don’t always see. Last but not least, the finished product was beautiful! They carved out flower beds, laid sod, put in a drainage system, planted semi-mature trees/plants and created a gorgeous patio with built-in benching. They did all of this on a tight timeline and a strict budget. I’ve never been more impressed with a team of people and their finished product. I HIGHLY recommend Root & Stem for all of your landscaping needs!
