Higher Ground Landscaping


Excellence is never an accident; it is the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction, and skillful execution.



"Amazing work, Tony is extremely friendly and easy to work with. I recently had a flooded back yard and Higher Ground built in a series of French drains and an outdoor sump pump system. I cannot wait to enjoy my DRY yard this year! I would give these guys 6 stars if I could, highly recommended."

“Tony and his crew were amazing! They made sure to treat our home as if it were there own - very clean and professional. I highly recommend Higher Ground Landscaping and will be keeping them in mind for any future work we may have. Thanks Tony!”

"Hi Tony, I want to thank you for your time and honesty. Your advice helped me understand the whole situation re.patios-there is no emergency at the moment. In a few more years would make more justification to go through the expense to fix the patios. We would definitely contact you then.Your Honesty is very commendable. Thank you again. All the best to you."
Warmly, Galina Sarkisian 

"Tony and his crew did an outstanding job. All were very professional and very easy to work with. Highly recommend. "

I wanted to wait to write my review until the rains came this Spring, and I'm glad I did. With the rain we've had, last Spring my yard would have been 6-8 inches of standing water. That was before Tony and his crew (Jesus, Todd, and all the wonderful fellows who worked on our drainage system) installed a French drain, catchment basin, and drain line out to the city storm sewer. This Spring, the yard is dry. No flooding, no soggy, no sinking shoes as we squelch out back -- DRY. If that alone is not enough to convince you, let me explain that hiring this company means you are hiring Tony's brain, which very much understands the science of drainage. Additionally, the crew is professional, efficient, and amazingly kind. Honestly, my lawn looks nicer now than it did before, which was not what I expected at all, after large scale equipment had to be driven through the wet clay. But they left it all graded and seeded, and it looks fantastic now! You get what you pay for. Higher Ground may come with a higher price tag than some other landscape companies, but that's because the work is that much better quality.

"Excellent service. I couldn't be happier with the outcome of my concrete patio. Recommended!!"

“Tony was a pleasure to work with! He is knowledgeable and has the capability to transform your visions and ideas into reality. His company completely transformed our backyard landscaping, patio, stairs and drainage system! It looks better than we could have imagined! The work was done in a timely fashion and each crew member was professional! I would recommend this company to anyone!!”

“I hired Higher Grounds Landscaping twice for drainage solutions and have been very pleased with the workers, and the job well done both times. I would not hesitate to use them again and recommend them to anyone.”

“Tony and his crew just finished our patio this morning. Tony is very professional and conscientious from his bidding process all the way through the project. His crew is well trained and he supervises them by being on the job site most of the day. He is available by phone and was patient with my many questions and concerns. His work is excellent and his large crew is efficient and well organized. We are very happy with his work and we would highly recommend him.”

“Tony and his team did a beautiful job installing a boulder retention wall on our property. He also installed a French drain system and consulted with us on various other things. Tony is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and has fair prices. We look forward to working with him again in the future.”

“We’ve worked with Tony and his company twice now. The first time he did a patio and entire backyard landscaping. Now, we’re in a new house and he took out all of the previous landscaping and gave us the cleaner, more updated look we were going for. Both times he has been quick, communicated well, and made sure we were happy with a final walk through. My neighbors commented on how hard the guys worked while my husband and I were at work. We plan to work with him again to redo this home’s patio and backyard landscaping, as well as some landscaping lighting in the front. What I really love is how willing he is to work with the budget you provide. Very happy repeat customers!”

“Tony and crew installed drainage in my yard. It is working fantastic and I can’t say enough about how professional and efficient the crew was. Tony explained what they would do and timing on when everything would happen. The crew showed up when they said they would and everything was completed when they said it would. My yard drains very well now. Tony is very knowledgeable on drainage and landscaping. He is also very creative and I will definitely be contracting him to do our landscaping when we are ready. I highly recommend Higher Ground Landscaping to anyone looking to have any of this type of work completed at their home. Tony goes above and beyond to make sure his customers are happy. I have never dealt with such a kind, caring, and honest contractor like Tony before.” 

“I’m very pleased with the drainage work performed by Higher Ground Landscaping. The team arrived early, got to work, completed the job and even cleaned up. What a hardworking, competent and polite team. I would highly recommend them to anyone who has a landscaping or drainage project in their future.

Thank you for a great job.”

“Thank you Tony, its my pleasure to give you a rave review for the excellent work you did on my landscaping. Thanks again.”

“We contacted Tony to update our outdoor lighting to an LED system and to reconfigure the lights. He came up with a great plan using these new LED bulbs at a reasonable bid quote. He was easy to work with and was timely with installation. Work was completed in one day and now our outdoor lighting is fabulous. We are the showpiece of the neighborhood with more efficient lighting and an easier programming box. He did a small landscaping job for us as well that we added after we attempted to do it without success. We will be contacting him again for further landscape work.”

“I had them install brick pavers at my home. They did a great job. The price was really fair. They warrantied everything. They also came back and replaced some bricks that were broken after a couple years. This company is one of the best. The job is beautiful and clean. My wife and I are extremely happy with the work. I’ll be recommending everyone I know who needs landscaping to them.”

“Tony and his crew were fantastic to work with. They did a wonderful job and our job was done in one day. Thanks!.”

“Tony was a pleasure to work with, and he helped us come up with a stunning patio and landscape design. It’s rare to find a contractor who is as excited and passionate about his work. His crew was polite and professional, and the work was done on schedule (also a rarity in the world of contractors). We are already planning to have him do more work next year.”

“This is the best contractor that I have ever worked with. They went above and beyond to provide a service that was second to none. Very professional but also very artistic. They had a vision for our yard and it turned out better than we could have hoped for. Four years later it is as perfect as ever and we are as happy as ever.”

“Tony and his crew built us a beautiful elevated/landscaped stone wall paver patio that has generated a lot of compliments from our neighbors. They started/finished on time, were courteous and cleaned up nicely when they were done. The price was fair. What more can you say?”

“I had them do my brick pavers and the job came out great. Now, I have them putting in my grass and plants. These guys are really good at they do and the prices are very reasonable and competitive. I will for sure be recommending them to everyone who is in need of landscaping.”
