Chuck & Lori Stauffer, Rosemount, MN

After some remodeling on our house the landscaping was completely destroyed. When we contacted Lora we didn’t really even know where to start. She gave us some good advice but most importantly stressed the importance of doing a good grading job. This is the stuff that doesn’t show, but really is the most important part of any project. When they finished the grading and adding the dirt it looked 100% better. That enabled us to work on the design aspect which turned out great.

We are extremely happy with the professionalism and the friendliness they showed us. We would highly recommend them to anyone who “doesn’t even know where to start.”

Great experience from start to finish! We’ve had other estimates to create a border garden but, have never moved forward with the project. Lora and Bill came in, really listened to what I wanted to achieve, gave some great suggestions and a detailed estimate. The plan was clearly laid out for us so there were no surprises or hidden costs. Their recommendations really made sense! You can tell they have lots of experience and want to do what is truly best and also most practical. Lora said ” I really want it to be fun for you and not stressful” – and she succeeded!

My phone calls or emails were returned promptly, they were able to create exactly what I was hoping for, and were conscious of cost while creating a beautiful berm and garden for us.

Lora and Bill are great to work with. We are very happy with the results and would highly recommend their services! We will use “Landscapes By Lora” for our next project.

What an amazing backyard transformation! Bill and Lora took our boring, plain jane backyard and turned it into a beautiful patio and fire pit surrounded with flowers, boulders and mulch. We have gotten compliments by every neighbor that has seen it. We never thought we would have such a beautiful place to sit and enjoy our morning coffee or watch the kids play in the yard. Bill and Lora had a vision from the beginning and it was fun to see their descriptions come to life. They were also great at changing a few things as they went because it just wasn’t going to look right and they wanted it to be perfect for us.

They were a joy to work with~listened to our ideas and concerns, worked long and hard to get the job done, cleaned up after themselves (I couldn’t believe the day I saw them sweeping the street) and left the jobsite like it was a masterpiece. We would recommend them to anyone needing some landscape work done. You won’t be disappointed!!

Thanks Lora & Bill!

We are thrilled with what you suggested and the look of both our front and backyard projects. Thanks for getting it done so quickly before the snow fell.

“We would recommend Landscapes By Lora to anyone! We had our existing landscaping torn out and redone. We have been very pleased with the results. Lora and Bill responded promptly to all of our phone calls and their prices were very reasonable. We have received many compliments on our landscaping from our neighbors, family and friends.”

“Landscapes By Lora came to my house in the spring of 2006 and transformed the hill in my back yard from weeds to various plants, mulch, boulders and extended the landscaping all around the shed. It all looks lovely. Each year I have them back to add more new plants on the hill and other miscellaneous projects I need done. I have had them back to work on: re-sodding half the yard; edging and rock around the house; raised edging around a side tree; and an island in the front yard with edging. They have been so wonderful to work with I feel they are now close friends of mine!”

“Talk about customer service, Bill and Lora are the best! My experience with them has been the most positive I have had with any outside contractor. I have never met such great, caring people who take the time to follow through to the point that you would think they were working on their own landscaping project. They transformed my overgrown, weed-infested back yard and garden into a beautiful sanctuary. I can’t wait to enjoy my ‘Garden of Eden.’ I am considering having more work done and wouldn’t think of hiring anyone else!”

“The personal attention that Lora and Bill offered us was a clear difference in our choice (and continued choice) to work with them. They really take the time to understand what we want to accomplish. They are ever-conscious of our budget and truly work to meet our expectations. Once they won our business, it was no surprise, to us, to see how much care went into the quality of their work. Since the first time we worked with them 7 years ago, we recently moved to a new house. The first call for landscaping went to Lora and Bill. We continue to be elated with the results! Once again they have more than exceeded our expectations and we call them regularly to continue our landscape. We are looking forward to our next project with them! Thank you Lora and Bill.”

“Lora and Bill have been wonderful to work with. We have done multiple projects over the last year and a half and I am so thankful for the terrific work they do. When I decided to do the landscaping projects in phases, they agreed that was the way to go. They present their ideas, but are willing to listen to my input on the project. Both of them are easy-going, flexible, and able to meet our deadlines. One of the best aspects of working with them,is that they are practical about what needs to be done and do not oversell something that is not necessary. I did not find that with the other landscapers I bid with before choosing Lora and Bill. Working with them was one of the best decisions I have ever made. We got to enjoy our new patio all last summer and know that it will be there for a very long time with no drainage problems thanks to them. We look forward to the next project this summer and working with them again.”

“Lora and Bill were such a pleasure to work with. My husband and I had always hated the front entrance to our home. It was boring and bland. Now we love it! They came over, had great ideas and implemented them. We could never have some up with such a beautiful deisgn without them. They were meticulous with their attention to detail and we would not hesitate to hire them again with any landscaping job!”
