Hallmark Fine Gardens did impeccable work for us at a fair price and very timely fashion. Our job was quite large, including two lawns, planting in the front and back, a front flagstone walkway, and a new retaining wall and fence . Tyler Stavros followed up with me regularly to make sure I was satisfied; he and his team did the work at a high level of quality that met and often exceeded my expectations.

Hallmark Fine Gardens did an excellent job on our landscaping project: pavers for our carport, driveway and parking pads, retaining walls, new lawn, shrubs, and lighting. We highly recommend them. Over the years, we had seen several Hallmark Fine Gardens projects underway and loved the results of every one of them.
Tyler Stavros and his team are a pleasure to work with: he knows about high quality materials over various price options and the team does beautiful work with painstaking detail. The pricing is fair and reasonable.Their goal was our satisfaction --- they wanted us to have the design and look that we liked and wanted.
Our neighbors all stop by to tell us how beautiful our front yard is.One of our favorite comments was that “there’s only one thing wrong --- it’s in front of your house, instead of mine.”

We hired Hallmark Fine Gardens to completely re-do our front yard. We did not have a professional landscape plan, but Tyler was able to listen to our ideas and helped us draw up a plan with everything that we wanted which included rock (retaining) walls, concrete steps, drought tolerant plants, maple trees, irrigation and lighting. The project was within budget and on time.
Tyler is extremely responsive, and kept me updated on progress or changes on a daily basis. He manages the project well, so that his crew has what they need to keep the job going. Dumpsters, tools and supplies seem to show up at the right time for each phase of the job. The crew is hard working, courteous, and responsive to any of our requests. Overall, a positive experience working with Hallmark Fine Gardens, and we couldn't be happier with our new front yard. I would recommend Hallmark.
We have had many neighbors and just people walking by, compliment us on how beautiful the front yard is….We even had one lady ring our doorbell asking who did the landscape work.

I have done many demolition, home remodeling and landscaping projects in my lifetime and I have never worked with a general contractor or subcontractor in ANY profession that did finer work than Hallmark Fine
Gardens. Tyler's design sense, attention to detail, professionalism and overall project management was superb. His crew showed up on time, executed flawlessly and were impeccable in clean-up at the end
of the day. The focus was always on making sure that the project was exactly what we wanted, and they really delivered.

Tyler Stavros and Hallmark Fine Gardens recently completed a beautiful front and backyard landscaping project for us. The project in front included installation of a new porch, a new lawn with sprinklers, and two planting beds containing shrubs and decorative rocks. The backyard project included a new lawn with sprinklers, a decorative rock retaining wall, a flagstone pathway with lighting and beautiful planting beds. We were very happy with the end result and have received many compliments on our project.
Tyler was a pleasure to work with; he is full of creative ideas and did an excellent job of integrating the new landscaping with areas of existing shrubs and planters that we did not want to change. Tyler was very accessible; he responded quickly to phone calls and emails. He and his team were always on time; they kept me informed of their arrival and departure times which was a tremendous help in dealing with our dogs. We found their work to be very high quality; his worker who does the rock retaining wall and flagstone pathway is outstanding! The work was completed on time, within budget and their were no financial surprises.
Now we are thoroughly enjoying our new gardens and Tyler and his maintenance crew are keeping everything looking as good or if not better than the day they finished!

"We hired Hallmark Fine Gardens for a large landscaping project, consisting of a complete redesign of the front and back yard, which involved extensive hardscaping, soil movement and terracing, irrigation, lighting, and numerous other elements. Tyler and his crew did an excellent job, exhibiting a high degree of professionalism and ensuring our complete satisfaction. I would not hesitate in hiring them again."
