Truly our yard has transformed into a great the pictures I’ve attached doesn’t do it justice. The attention to detail in everything they do is top of the line and like no other landscaping in the Northshore! Thanks again Dave and Jennifer and everything Greenhaven stands for!!!Read More

Greenhaven did an amazing job for us! We started from scratch with all new plantings in the front and back, including 3 very large trees. They also designed a new rear patio, moved the front driveway and designed new stoops by our front and side doors. In addition planned all drainage, irrigation and lighting. Jen’s attention to detail is phenomenal as is her vision. David’s maintenance crew does a great job and their seasonal containers are gorgeous. We couldn’t be happier!Read More

We have been using Greenhaven Landscape for 10 years. Working with David Hoxsie, one of the owners has been a pleasure. David has had the challenge of working with my husband who likes a more formal style and I like more freeform. We are both happy with how he has satisfied both of us. The weekly crew are topnotch. They do a wonderful job of cutting, clipping and weeding. They do a beautiful job of cleaning up the spider webs and they even clean our birdbath. David is always available to do a walk around and make suggestions and incorporates our ideas. He listens to our request and accepts them when appropriate and feasible. The office staff is amazing they always let us know of the crews' schedule has changed. They accommodate our request for changing when the crew comes. Greenhaven Landscape has done a great job taking care of our yard. We feel we made the correct move when we chose them.Read More
