Question: Where were you 30 years ago?
Basics is the most professional landscaper I have “EVER” worked with. You do what you say you will do and do it on time and at the stated quote – no surprises. I am very ecstatic with our relationship.
Peter Klein
Overall, we are nothing but impressed with the workmanship. Basics truly does exceeded our expectations in many ways. The crew does go above and beyond. The knowledge and communication of the salespeople are beyond compare. The expression “you get what you pay for” really does apply and I know with your high price comes higher expectations. We will continue to share with friends and neighbors the good experiences we’ve had with Basics.
The Olszewski's
Our experience with Basics was a very positive one. Everyone was very professional and knowledgeable. They handled all our questions and concerns promptly and were very easy to work with.
The Glattfelder's
My wife and I have had many contractors over the last 30 years for projects around our home. Basics Landscaping was the easiest and most rewarding experience we have ever had! We felt that we were treated like family from customer service – Sales – and even the crew. We will be doing many more projects with Basics in the future!!
Bob & Kathy Carpentier
We couldn’t be more pleased with the complete transformation of our front walkway and porch. What a fantastic job that exceeded all of our expectations. 100% complete professionalism from the moment we met with the designer Jay, to the foreman, to all the incredible workers. Every step of the project was managed and well communicated. We will absolutely be going with Basics for all future landscape projects!!
Stephanie Berlin
We have been a customer of Basics Landscaping for 7 years. We are consistently impressed by the quality of workmanship they deliver. Jay is wonderful to deal with and he is very helpful. James and his crew have revamped our entire backyard. They are the hardest working people who never fail to wow us with their work.
Basics installed a new front walk at our home this year. Last year they installed a new patio in our backyard. Their work is impeccable. At the completion of the job, you know you have new hard scape, but you cannot tell that anyone worked on your property.

We would recommend them without hesitation.

Lauren and Robert Wishnew
Can only say good things about this company. From start (sale) to finish (installation); professional, considerate, and efficient completion of our project. The workmen were focused and skilled at each of their respective ‘duties’ and worked well as a team.
This was the second time that we hired Basics Landscaping to work on our property and we continue to be extremely impressed with their high-quality work, excellent professionalism, creativity and final product. All of the workers from the top-down were friendly, responsive and delivered exactly as promised. The finished product exceeded our expectations and will gladly refer friends and neighbors to Basics in the future.

Thank you for a job well done!!

Beth & Jeff Schneider
Many thanks to Basics Landscaping for the design and construction of my new backyard retreat. Jay and Farah were able to plan that which I could not have envisioned on my own. All of their ideas and suggestions were perfect! Much praise for James, Frankie and Andrew and the rest of the crew. They were always punctual, meticulously neat, extremely organized, respectful and hard working. James is a master planner and problem solver who was able to take original ideas and turn them into better end products. It is AMAZING at the vision he has! Basics Landscaping is an INCREDIBLE company with fantastic people. They will always be tops when it comes to recommendations!

They are the only way to go!!!

Barbara Goebel
My husband and I were extremely delighted with Basics Landscaping. When we met with Jay – our salesperson, he promised us we would be happy – and we were more than happy!! Every promise he made to us was kept. Jay checked in with us almost daily and the foreman he sent to us went above and beyond. They were knowledgeable, creative, polite and a pleasure to have working on my house. Thank you James, Andrew and Frankie!!

My neighbors were also extremely pleased by your workers as well as your work.

Not only will I be recommending you but the work you did for us is your Best Recommendation!! WE LOVE IT!!!!!

Kathy Stroessner
We recently had an old brick patio replaced with a patio of pavers. From start to finish we were completely satisfied. The workmanship was outstanding and the finished product far exceeded our expectations. All of the workmen were true professionals and respected our property as if it were their own.

Choosing Basics was a great decision.

Lauren and Robert Wishnew
In 2012 we hired Basics Landscaping to do our weekly maintenance/lawn care. We were so pleased with their work/eye for detail, we hired them to do our Outdoor Kitchen (stone surround with Granite countertop), also a stone path around the deck through a garden leading to a gate. Once again, we were extremely pleased with the whole experience. This year, we decided to install stone to the front of the house, including arch stone surrounding the garage doors. Jay once again assisted us in the design and was patient with our plethora of questions. He’s very easy to work with. James was our crew chief for both jobs. James also assisted us with the design. He was ALWAYS on time, pleasant, and ALWAYS cleaned up the property at days end. One word sums up the work performed: SPECTACULAR!!

Regrets? Only one – I wish I’d known about Basics years ago. I’m looking forward to the next project, whatever it may be.

Linda & Joseph Bove, MD
We would like to thank the Basics Landscaping team for evaluating and designing the property of our home from a plain dull look to a beautiful work of art!

We thank you so much for being so knowledgeable and so reliable and for truly putting your heart into our project which transformed our front and backyards into a wonderful and peaceful home. Thank you for giving us the highest quality of service!

MaryAnne & Patrick Gaudioso
People often speak of “needs” and “wants”. Providing my 90 year old mother with a ramp was a “need”. Having a beautiful not just functional ramp was a “want”. James analyzed our situation and created a beautiful addition across the front of our home. James and his crew were meticulous about every phase of this project. They were all team players right down to their professional uniforms. What a wonderful experience.
Susan Bardes
We have had small projects done in the past by other contractors and NONE of them provided the professional courteous service we received from Basics Landscaping. From the time we walked into the showroom until the time the last worker stepped off our property, Basics was amazing. The quality of work and finishing touches are beyond what we had anticipated. The work was done quickly and with no interruption to our busy lives. Our yard was left neat everyday, everyone from Jay to our foreman to our workers were professional and friendly. We can’t wait to use Basics again.
The Carters
Having used Basics Landscaping in the past there was no doubt in our mind that our expectations would not be surpassed upon moving to our new home. They beautifully manicured our yard and garden. We received compliments from all our neighbors.
The Brottmans
I love these people! The guy came exactly when he said he’d come. I had no idea what I wanted and he was able to communicate what he thought was a good idea. I was able to get a mental vision of it and when it was done it was exactly the same as my mental vision. As for my path, I had spoken to so many people about it and no one knew what I was talking about. He got it and he installed it and it looks like its been there for 100 years. I love my front porch and my path. Even when I don’t walk out there, I open the door to look. When I do look out there it amazes me. This is one of those houses where the only entrance is at the driveway and people always came in the driveway or walked across the lawn. Now they follow the route of the path. Even when an ambulance came they followed the route of the path. It was a great, capitol G experience. They were helpful in figuring out how we were going to do this, we asked if they offered financing. We had just got done paying for a wedding and putting two kids through college. They didn’t offer financing but he suggested a zero interest credit card and it turned out perfectly. We were able to pay it off in four installments.
Robin Romeo
I could not be happier with the landscaping that was designed by Farah. She listened to my concerns and requests. She was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Her suggestions complimented what my vision was for our front yard. It looks spectacular and the flowers are not even in full bloom! The landscaping/sprinkler crew was pleasant and hard working. Everyone took pride in their work and it shows. When I did not care for something that was already in the ground, Farah had it changed and replaced that very same day. When I had questions about the newly renovated sprinkler system, Frank came over and walked the property with me to make sure I was satisfied. It was truly a pleasure working with Basics Landscaping.
Jenny Budah
We ordered a Gazebo for our newly renovated building. Basics Landscaping came through for us with our time constraints and delivered a beautiful product. They were great to work with and exceeded our expectations.

Thank you Basics Landscaping for a job well done.

We are very pleased with the installation of the new sod. It is greening up beautifully. Nice and uniform in quality. I was pleasantly surprised how extensively they renovated my sprinkler system and even returned promptly when a small problem occurred. Also the DeLalio sod is far better than DeLea sod quality. Also Jay’s team does not just install and abandon, they seem interested in maintenance and making sure the correct chemicals and watering technique is fulfilled.
I would just like to say that I would 110% recommend Basics Landscaping for all your outdoor needs. I moved into a new development with only dirt and weeds. Basics completely transformed my entire property that now looks like Hollywood!!! They definitely do award wining work! They are extremely meticulous at what they do, their attention to detail and design are unparalleled. I trust them 100%. Basics will totally transform your property and make coming home a wonderful experience.
Claudine Orlian
Basics was the 5th landscaping company we tried and from the very beginning far exceeded all others. The staff is so professional and always tries their best to help with whatever is going on. The landscaping crew do the best job landscaping we have ever seen, they are perfectionists and nothing is left undone. Jay is brilliant in his profession. He orchestrated and completed an unbelievably gorgeous revision of our front walkway adding the most stunning accent trees, shrubs and flowers. Gorgeous stone walkway and porch landing. They also lit up all the landscaping and put in all our accent lanterns. Our property is a work of art that cars stop and stare at – we are beyond happy with this service and worth every penny!!
Mr. Berlin
Excellent quality service! Very professional team. They go out of their way to make sure you will be happy. Will definitely use them again. One of the only companies that are capable of taking care of everything that needs to be done.
Tony
My husband and I highly recommend Basics Landscaping for your landscaping needs. They are extremely professional and knowledgable. Their crew is hard working, courteous and neat.
JAK
All too often people write in order to complain about workers. We are writing to extend kudos to the crew who spent 3 1/2 days at our home performing a major landscaping undertaking.
Led by foreman German the men did an extraordinary job. Their work ethic is uncompromised; working 10 hr. days with only a short respite for lunch. Some requests were made by one of us to move or change something and these were met with “of course, not a problem”.
Frankie was relentless in moving, adding and fixing sprinkler heads and lines. He made certain that everything was in working order and in their proper places to insure coverage.
The entire crew are an asset to Basics Landscaping, employees like these are rare to find and even harder to keep.
Steve & Linda Galenskas
To date we are totally satisfied with Basics Landscaping. This company takes pride in their work and goes the extra steps to satisfy the customer. From start to finish they pay attention to the project at hand. From the start Farah helped plant and design according to what we wanted. Jay made sure the project was completed and done to high standards. The crew where great from start to finish. This is a tightly run ship and we would highly recommend them!
