Hello. Mark did a great job on our patio a few years ago. We're in a new house now and looking to add a screen room over a small patio.

ECLD listened to the ideas I had for my yards and helped me turn them into projects that met my goals for function, beauty, and privacy and they did it within the price range I wanted. The quality of the plants and materials they used was very good and nearly all thrived during the growing season. I had one tree that mysteriously browned and died, so they replaced it (no charge). Also, when they erred during the planting of some groundcover (they put it slightly in the wrong place) they fixed it the next day. They were easy to work with, professional, and are clearly very interested in working with you to get you what you want.

Erosion Control

This was a large erosion control and slope stabilization project. I am very happy with the resulting retaining wall, multi-level patio, safety railing and the rocks and plantings that were used to fill in the eroded area of my property. I wanted the erosion control and retaining wall. I got those and more. I have a beautiful, functional outdoor living space. The expert crew had a good eye for the aesthetic aspect of the design on top of their technical construction knowledge. They protected my existing lawn so that it survived multiple bobcat trips carrying loads of block, rock and fill. I highly recommend this company.

I have been a customer of East Coast Landscape for 25+ years. The company has landscaped my entire yard with great results. I would not use anyone else.

There is always an open line of communication with the owner and those who come to the work. These people show respect and are knowledgeable about what they are sent to do to my yard.

East Coast Landscape is a great company.

Precision Stone Work

We hired East Coast to install lighted flagstone steps and a rather long path to our house.. The job required regrading and precision stone work. They did a beautiful job, were responsive to requests for changes, and completed the work in time. I highly recommend them.

It Was Excellent!

It was excellent!!!!! The only thing that took the project 2 weeks longer was the DCRA inspection process which DC reaidence know is a head ache in itself. We are hiring them again to do our patio and firepit along with another time to do our walkway to the front door and porch. Excellent company service and employees. Worth every penny knowing they did a solid job that will not ever fail when completed.

Description of work:

We had our driveway redone with permeable pavers and the garage refloored with non permeable pavers along with 2 new walls built bordering the driveway with stone.

East Coast Is The Best!!

We just want to thank you for your wonderful response to our question about the sick/dying plant. Mark left me a phone message yesterday and the plant has been replaced and looks great. Please let Mark know how much we appreciate the terrific service. East Coast is the best!!

Very Pleased With East Coast

We could not be more pleased with every aspect of the project. There are not many Mark Simpson's out there! His breadth of knowledge, genuine interest and responsiveness made the project a pleasure. We kept changing our mind about the project. Mark would come to the house and have a new plan drawn up within a few days. Unlike some owners, during and after the project Mark stayed in close contact. The gentlemen who completed the project were also very knowledgeable, very competent and worked incredibly hard. They even suggested a slight change in the design of the wall which turned out to be a great idea. Overall, we are very pleased with East Coast Landscaping. We plan to continue working with Mark for additional post-project landscaping.

Description of work:

We have a significantly sloped, large backyard that has suffered constant erosion over the past 30 years. East Coast constructed an 8 foot high wall, then back filled, and then sodded what is now a wonderful back yard.


Absolutely Thrilled!

I received Mark's voicemail yesterday and wanted to get back to you to say that we are absolutely THRILLED with the work that was done on our patio. It is such a huge improvement and allows us to really enjoy our backyard now. And I can't even say enough about the professionalism of the crew. We will definitely call you again when we are ready to upgrade our front walkway.

Thank you very much.


You Guys Were Great!

Just a quick shout out to you and especially, Roberto, for taking on this project and getting it done, and done well. Here's to the 10 ( or 5) percent that can actually do what they say! I know Roberto and the guys are out there humping once more through this heat - god bless 'em.

You guys were great.

Cheers, best of luck with all your projects!

Impressed With The Artistry!

I like many others often complain that no one takes pride in their work product anymore. That is why I was so incredibly impressed with Roberto , who regraded and redid our backyard patio to improve water drainage.

Roberto is a perfectionist who obviously takes great pride in his work. In fact, our patio now looks better than when it was first installed. We were so impressed with his artistry. He is a master in his profession.

They did a retaining wall. It's perfect. They showed up when they said they were going to and finished the job up nicely. I hadn't worked with them before...I have some jobs in the works, and I plan on reusing them...I would call on them again...
