"Chuck, I would like to mention how much my family has enjoyed the landscapes you have created for us.  We all especially enjoy our backyard and spend so much more time there than even before!  The lighting that was installed, which we have never had before, has proved to be the best value added purchase ever.  We stay out longer and enjoy the view of our garden even after dark!  We are also enjoying a great surge in the number of birds to the yard and I love my feathered friends.  I have seen several hummingbirds this spring, earlier than I have seen in the past.

You also know that my son was badly injured in early spring and I can't t tell you how much my beautiful backyard has brought me comfort from the stress of coping with his recovery.  Thank you!"

Thanks so much and maybe one day you can build us a patio in the backyard. I would definitely hire you again for any future work we may have and of course recommend you to friends and neighbors, who by the way have been complimenting the work every day.
Have a great summer and thanks so much again,"

The plants you chose are beautiful and blend well with our wooded back yard. [Your foreman] takes a great deal of pride in his job and it shows. He is so easy to work with and it's clear that he wants to make your clients happy.
My neighbors enjoy the front yard as much as we do! Anyone who hires you will be assured of an outstanding design and professional installation."

"C. Dod Landscaping is a top-notch landscaping and design firm. I was impressed with Chuck from the first time he came by to discuss our project. He was thoughtful, asked the right questions, and gave an air of quiet confidence - he's not salesy and will suggest a plan that makes sense for the style of your home and your budget. He is trained in design and it shows. He spent two hours outside our property drafting a plan for us - he doesn't hand the work off to a junior associate. The project turned out beautifully - we are very pleased with the quality and execution. Jose, his foreman, is great and takes pride in his work. Highly recommended!"
-Ashburn, VA

The clean up and construction mateials were always neat and complete. We are extremely pleased with the end product.
Thank you for your creative vision for our 30 year old home and wall. You have introduced us to a beautiful new side of our home here in Woodbridge.
We look forward to calling you again for help with the front walk in the future."
-Nancy and Bob Joseph

"Veerle and I are very pleased with how the patio turned out. The design is elegant and it seems that we have gained enormous new space that we look forward to enjoying. From the practical standpoint, last night’s heavy rains showed how well the new patio moves water away from the house.
Special thanks to Jose’ and his crew for their meticulous work. I was at home to watch much of their work and I was impressed by their attention to detail and efficiency. Jose’ was polite and helpful, repeatedly offering to answer any of my questions and to describe the work he and his crew were doing. They kept the site tidy and did a nice job restoring the area around the patio when they were done.
Veerle and I plan to seek help with landscaping over the coming years and will certainly reach out to you again when the time comes."
-Adam Sterling, Falls Church, VA

Thanks so much to all of you!"
