Remodeling and Home Design

"Schmechtig was fantastic. Not only were they the most helpful in helping plan our patio project but their designs were exactly what we liked and the work was flawless. But the best compliment I can pay is how accessible Brian has been throughout the process. He always answered quickly, and when you're working on a large project, that is unfortunately a very rare trait in contractors. He was also very flexible in terms of design changes and his attention to detail is spot on. "Yep, it's on my list," And he gets it done. We're looking forward to future projects with Brian and Schmechtig."

"I cannot say enough about my experience while working with Brian and his team of professionals at Schmechtig Landscapes. Not only was Brian professional and knowledgeable, he was instrumental in making our landscaping project as beautiful as possible while staying within our budget. He listened to exactly what our vision was and made it even better than we could have imagined. The team of landscapers were extremely courteous and efficient. They did excellent brick work and planting. They continuously cleaned up after themselves and did not leave debris around the work site. We will be contacting Schmechtig next year to give us a quote for a backyard brick patio and firepit!"

"Had drainage issues on the side and along the back of our yard. Worked with another company last year that put in a swale but it was not effective. After having a few other landscaping companies out and not being very impressed, found Schmechtig online and asked them to come out. Brian Robinson at Schmechtig offered us a solution for our issue that was not only practical but also helped beautify the yard by 1.) making the swale into a pseudo riverbed with rocks; and 2.) adding plants and flowers along the side and back.

"Once the job was scheduled, they were able to finish within just over a day. About a week later we noticed that while the swale was working, our design did not have the rocks for the swale going all the way to the top. Therefore, there were unsightly indentations in the mud that took away from the design. Brian at Schmechtig offered to drop by some extra rocks and materials so we could extend the "riverbed" portion of the swale at no additional cost. We greatly appreciated them offering to do so.

"All in all we found Brian and Schmechtig Landscapes to be a very professional landscaping company that offered ideas to solve our backyard issue that no other firm we contacted had mentioned. We would highly recommend them for your landscaping needs and intend to contact them in the future should we require further landscaping work at our home."

"We hired Schmechtig to install pavers around our new pool. The workers were respectful, helpful and neat. Brian Robinson was especially helpful in the layout and design - adapting to our needs. Because of their wonderful work, this led to our hiring them for lighting and landscaping. The pool and surrounding area is beautiful."

"I have used the Schmechtig landscape for over 22 years. I trust them with all my landscape needs - irrigation, lawn maintenance and snowplowing. There is very little turn over so I am able to work with the same managers and design people over many seasons.

"I have used their design services for small "facelift " projects. They also designed and created a beautiful landscape for a house we built. It included a tiered wall basement walkout which was stunning.

"I just finished the Fall portion of a 2 season project for the small back yard of my current home. I am working with a great designer and the landscape manager for my area. The 3 of us get along beautifully! We came up with a plan that meets all the items on my "wish list ". When it is finished in the Spring, I will have 2 seating areas in a cottage atmosphere. I can't wait!"

"We have been customers/clients of Schmechtig Landscapes for almost thirty years. In addition to providing outstanding lawn service during that time, company founder Klaus Schmechtig, his son Mike and our account executive Rob Sizer have completed numerous landscape design projects for us. We have always been delighted with their competence, their responsivenes and the quality of plant materials provided. We love our property, and we love the way that Schmechtig Landscapes has worked with us to design and maintain it."

"Nick was wonderful to work with! He was very knowledgable and kept us unformed as to when the work would be done. It turned out exactly as we had hoped!"


Project Date: July 2014

"Acted as the overall general contractor for work that included: new driveway, removal of old concrete sidewalk and porch and replacing with a paver sidewalk and new expanded paver porch. Pavers were also installed along each outer side of the driveway leading down to the street. New landscaping installed along the stone pathway to the backyard. New fire pit that was done with crushed granite and installation of Flagstone steppers with an outer ring of pavers that provided a nice edge. A Flagstone stepper walkway was installed leading from the side fence door to the back patio. The back patio was also removed and installed with new pavers that match the front. The team was very professional and made every effort to correct any areas that an issue arose so that everything match and blended well. New landscaping and grass was installed near the side door of the fence (inside the backyard). Very responsive to questions throughout the project. For example, a section of the pavers next to the driveway compressed and the team was dispatched to rework the area and we haven't had an issue since."

"Rob and Mark were excellent to work with and their design has transformed our yard. Thoughtful and professional approach. Highly recommend."

"We had a great experience with Schmechtig. They listened to our needs, created a plan for us, and executed it to perfection. The entire staff was extremely professional and I look forward to working with them again in the future."


Project Date: September 2012

"Schmectig Landscape attends to all of our landscape needs, irrigation start up, mid season inspection shut down and snow removal. Nick is our go to person for landscaping needs and responds to emails in a timely fashion and personally meets with me a few times a season. I have also used Schmectig to install a brick and limestone patio with additional landscaping and have had rave reviews on the finished product from golfers passing our home. ( We live on a golf course ) I have had a few issues with my irrigation system and even over a weekend they will send someone out to repair it. As for snow removal, they are A+."
