Backyard Landscaping

June 1, 2018

After researching several landscape architects, we chose S & J Scapes based on the excellent customer reviews compared to other companies. We hired the firm to complete a major redo of our entire backyard. This included laying significant underground drainage fields, adding approximately 200 cubic yards of new soil, adding screened topsoil, sodding the yard with Zoysia grass, adding three flower beds (including flowers and bushes) with stone edging, and providing additional concrete replacement for a portion of the driveway. Sam Johnson (the Owner) provided very clear descriptions and pricing of his recommendations up front. He was pleasant to work with and his work crews were very polite throughout the job. Everyone involved would clean up before leaving for the day. Total project took almost 4 weeks (including rain delays), but once work could begin, there was no wasted downtime. We could not be happier with the final project. Sam does what he says he will do and does not try to reprice or upsell after the job begins, even if his costs were more than expected. We highly recommend S & J Scapes and will use this firm again. Thanks Sam!

Retaining Wall Installation

February 17, 2018

Best experience I had with a contractor! Did not mess around or try to up-sell me. Asked what I wanted and I asked what he recommended. We both came to an understanding and two days later, I had a 100 square foot retaining wall. I will be using this company again!

Brick, Stone or Block Wall

February 11, 2018

Sam from S & J Scapes is the best contractor I have ever hired. That complement does not come easy as I myself did contracting and am very detail-oriented and expect top quality. My wife also felt she could trust Sam to do a quality job. I have other projects coming up and will definitely put S & J Scapes at the top of the list.

Landscaping for Yard or Garden

January 26, 2017

We hired S & J Scapes to replace a retaining wall. Our house may blow away in a storm but that retaining wall will remain! We could not be more pleased with their quality of work. They cleaned up after themselves both days. We highly recommend them!

S&J Scapes knocked it out of the park! Everything turned out better than expected. Sam also went the extra mile by calling the day after a storm to make sure everything was okay and then even came out to fertilize the lawn. He provided great advice for maintaining the yard and for future projects. His crew was very picky indeed making sure everything was built out correctly. Look forward to our next project with them.

Elimination of  Toxic Materials or Mold

We were greatly impressed! They did a fantastic job. Their quality work and work ethic is far above any other mold remediators. A year later, no mold in the house. Health has greatly improved and they likely saved my life.

Landscaping for Yard or Garden

May 18, 2015

We asked S & J to install a French drain, tying in three downspouts to manage our yard drainage problem. Their work crew did excellent work; they were courteous and professional, worked very hard to complete the work when they said they would and left virtually no trace that they were there. Scheduling the quotation, working out the details of the job and scheduling the work itself were also very easy and professionally done.

Basement or Foundation Waterproofing

February 21, 2015

Overall, I would definitely recommend S & J for any landscaping work and will certainly have them at the top of my list for any future work needed. I would not hesitate to use S & J again. Very professional work crew. Started and completed work on time and budget. Prices very reasonable. Very pleased with quality of work.

Landscaping for Yard or Garden

Sam and his crews did a terrific job designing, planning, and executing on the design. They worked really well with me, making several changes along the way. Sam really cared that we were happy with the final product and spent a lot of time to ensure that the job was done right. We are extremely happy with the end result and would recommend S & J to anyone.

George P. – Alpharetta, GA


Landscaping for Yard or Garden

S & J Scapes was very prompt, showed up when he said he was going to. Competitive estimate and the work was performed as promised. We had a brick stoop rebuilt on our side porch. The masonry job was done well. He checks on the job at completion and if there are any changes he will work with you to change it.

Brick and Stone Patios, Walks, and Steps

Sam had to come in and fix the mess that another landscaping company left in repairing my front steps. He quoted me a fair price to clean-up the debris left by Rivera, fix the unfinished step foundation, and build new steps. He came when promised, and had professional, conscientious workers do the job. He did not leave until the work was completed to my satisfaction and I felt the work he did earned him additional work I needed done (putting in brick spacers where my walkway had cracked and settled incorrectly). I now have a very good looking walkway and steps leading to my home.

Brick and Stone Patios, Walks, and Steps

Could not have been better from beginning to end. Response to inquiry/match was very prompt, and everyone with whom we worked was always communicative and open and accommodating to our own requests for the project. Workers were efficient and worked very hard. Cleanup from final job was done quickly and neatly. I would definitely use them again and would not hesitate to recommend S & J Scapes to family and friends.
