Residential Client Testimonials
We have contracted with Styer Landscaping since Bruce & Jean Styer formed the company sometime in the 1980’s and have always enjoyed this association. However, it wasn’t until Lucinda Mountainsong purchased Styer that we really benefited from the firm’s landscaping and land care ability. We have found Lucinda’s and the firm’s creativity and skill in landscaping to be unsurpassed.
Styer’s people really care, a trait that we have found lacking in many firms that we have worked with in the past. They work hard to do a topnotch job. No one is perfect (at least in the landscaping business) but when there is a problem created by them, a very infrequent occurrence in Styer’s case, they quickly rectify the problem with no charge to us. Importantly, it is Styer’s people who find and report their mistake to us.
Cutting the grass generally seems to be a mundane thing, yet the men who cut our lawns are unusually careful and considerate in all they do. They are neat to a fault, and take special care, using a small mower, wherever the big mower might get too near to fragile trees and bushes. Some landscaping companies in the lawn cutting business, when they are in a rush, make very sharp turns with their mowers which, in turn, leave gouges in one’s lawn. Styer’s people are extraordinarily careful not to do this on our lawns.
In the area of landscape planning, drawing and execution, Styer is superb. They have fine landscape architects who are creative yet listen carefully to our wishes. They solve problems that others have been unable to. The result is that outcomes have been terrific. We believe that all of this is due to the great people who work for Lucinda. In our case, I would say that Adam Jarvis, who has ram rodded all of our landscaping, has hit the ball out of the park. He and I are sure this is typical of all of Styer’s employees, really cares about continuous results, not just one day’s work. In Styer’s world, the job is never over just because the work is done. Adam Jarvis, and I am sure all of Styer’s team leaders, checks religiously to make sure the work they have done is functioning as it should, that plantings are doing well and takes the time to explain what his crew is doing. If there are any concerns, Adam will let me know, and then correct the issue(s). Again, I cannot stress enough that Styer’s folks really care about their customers.
Hi Mike, I just wanted to tell you that the plantings in the planter boxes on Monument look WONDERFUL!! Not only are they planted beautifully, and are a great choice, but they look like healthy well-nourished specimens (which we have not always received in the past). Please thank Meg for her design and tell her that we are looking forward to when we can do the next phase as well. Also, I saw your guys weeding like crazy yesterday and it was a beautiful sight! So thank you for that as well.

All in all, I cannot think of a landscape firm that we would rather work with. We recommend Styer Landscaping without reserve.
We love your attention to detail. You listen to our needs and wants and have exceeded our expectations. You are professional in your appearance and your dealings with us. You have bumped up our curb appeal and we now get that "welcome home" feeling when we pull up the driveway. You brought life back to our property again!
Being partly responsible for our HOA, just knowing you have our yard maintenance handled, makes my role so much easier.
We are HUGE fans!!!!!

I want you to know how much I appreciate the extra effort you and your wonderful team made to help me get my garden ready for the sale of our property here in Windsor Farms. As you know, this garden is very special to me. From the beginning, when you came and cleared out the old, overgrown garden and installed our new designs, all the way to the end, when we sold the house, you and your great staff have been a pleasure to work with.
— Jeanette M. - Henrico, VA
In the end, no matter who does the design, I think Bruce's crews are the best around. They are quiet, clean, precise, and accurate at following the design plan and extremely hard working.

I just wanted to drop you a line about the services your company provided for us. We have had a number of homes over the years and have used a number of landscaping firms. Our experience with your firm has been a very positive one for us. We look forward to a continued relationship and have already recommended you to a number of friends.

I do thank you and your crew for the beautiful job you did on the landscape work in my back yard---my friends just cannot believe how different the yard looks. You have a crew of very fine young men working for you. They were very accomodating and also very neat in their work...always cleaned up after themselves each day they were on the job. Not only were they neat, they were also very mannerly and courteous. Thank you again for the beautiful job you all did.
