Project Date: June 2017

We were looking for a contractor that could replace retaining walls, lay patio bricking, landscaping as well as replace fencing. Nicholson Landscaping is one of the few contractors that does it all....the right way! Ryan and his crew were great to deal with and very accommodating in our needs and time schedule. Their workmanship is excellent making the finished project a pleasure to behold, as well as use. Ryan’s knowledge and experience will help you make the right choices that will work in your situation. We would highly recommend Nicholson Landscaping for any project you have in mind and we would not hesitate in hiring Ryan for any future projects.

We hired Ryan and Nicholson Landscaping after meeting with 2-3 other companies. Ryan immediately came across as the most knowledgeable, friendly and detailed of all the ones we met so it was obvious to go with him.

They did a major project on our Poco backyard that included a retaining wall, fencing, paving stone deck and walkways plus some overall landscaping. We found his crew, in particular his foreman Jordan and Tim, to be outstanding. Several other crew were also on site and were also great to have around. They were professional, worked quickly, super friendly and polite, communicated very well and were generally enjoyable to have around our house for over a month.

Ryan visited our site often and always responded quickly on the same day to our questions and changes we wanted. The project was completed exactly as budgeted and with the exception of fall weather delays, was on time as well.

We would not hesitate to use Ryan and his company again for future projects and would recommend them to anyone considering a major landscaping project. They exceeded our expectations in many areas.

Have used Nicholson Landscaping twice - to do a flagstone path and sitting area in my backyard, May/June 2016 and to completely redo my front yard, February 2018. Excellent customer service on both projects. Both projects were completed in a timely manner and on budget. Ryan Nicholson and crew are extremely knowledgeable and professional. I would not hesitate to use them again and would highly recommend them to others.

We contracted Nicholson Landscaping to redo the front yard landscaping with a patio stone walk and build a new fence in the backyard in the early spring. Ryan was great at going through all the options and offering recommendations. We were very satisfied with the process and the results. Actual cost were in line with the quote we received. We would recommend their services and use them again....

This year we decided to renovate our back yard. Our old yard was ok, functional, we could have managed fine with it. We like the outdoors and wanted a yard that would be a great indoor outdoor space, a space we would gravitate to. We had a basic idea of what we wanted and a magazine picture of a dream back yard.

We had 4 different companies come over and give us a proposal . We chose Nicholson Landscaping because Ryan Nicholson offered suggestions to improve on our initial vision. We worked together to come up with a final plan that incorporated a great patio area, accessible flower planters and vegetable patch, and a stretch of green lawn the whole family can enjoy.

Ryan’s knowledge of water drainage, hardscapes, activity flow really shows through in our completed back yard. When we look back at the magazine photo, it is apparent we got so much more. We would recommend Nicholson Landscaping to anyone who wants professional results for their landscaping project.

“After consulting with several landscaping contractors, we were very fourtunate to have chosen Nicholson Landscaping.  Not only is Ryan Nicholson a certified landscaping professional, he acutally listens to his customers, providing friendly communication and support from start to finish.  Our extensive project had many technical issues that would have defeated lesser tradesmen.  Ryan and his team consistently proved they had the experience and ability to do the job regardless of difficulty.  The project was completed within our budget and time constraints.  The beautiful result was well beyond our expextations.  Nicholson Landscaping provides exceptional value and quality for the reasonable money charged, and we enthusiastically recommend them.”

“When our old retaining walls collapsed there were not many contractors willing to take on the challenge of repairing or replacing them. Ryan and his crew stepped up, and not only replaced the existing walls, but with some creative suggestions and a focus on details were able to completely transform our backyard. We now have a beautiful secluded retreat that generates lots of compliments from everyone that sees it. Ryan was a pleasure to deal with during the whole process. He spends a lot of time on site doing the work himself and provides good solutions for the inevitably little problems that arise in a large project. I am happy to recommend Ryan to anyone and he will be the first person I call for future landscaping projects.”

Gerhard and Regine Gries

“We selected Ryan for our project based on his training as a Journeyman  Landscape Professional in Germany.   He proved to be the perfect choice, highly skilled, experienced,  hard-working, reliable and polite. He loves to work with natural stone,  and it shows in his work. We are thrilled about his work and greatly  enjoy it. He has our highest possible recommendation”.

We wanted to thank you for doing  excellent work on our front yard landscaping project. We are very  happy with the workmanship and final product. The curb appeal of our home has  been significantly improved. You were really professional to deal with and  kept on budget which was important for us. Thanks  again! We would be happy to provide a reference anytime if you need  one.


“After  speaking to many different landscape groups we decided to go with  Nicholson Landscaping and we are very happy with the work that they  did.  Ryan and his crew worked hard for 2 and a half weeks transforming  our backyard from a shady little yard, dominated by a large cedar hedge,  to a bright garden with a beautiful paver stone patio.  We really  appreciated having the key manager/decision maker (Ryan) on site  completing the work himself.  It was easier to explain what we wanted  and make changes to the design easily.  Ryan took all of our changes in  stride and was a pleasure to work with.  If we require more landscape  work, we will definitely call on Ryan and Nicholson Landscaping.”
