We hired Garden Environments to clean up our back yard which was I'm sorry to say, a big mess. We had a lot of scrub, weeds, straggly trees, rocks and overgrown plantings. We are so thrilled with the results I keep going outside to stand and admire it! The design stage was thoughtfully handled and aligned precisely with our wish to use native plants and keep the area natural-looking rather than over-manicured. The staff were friendly, professional and so well-organized. The job was completed in no time with zero mess. We would definitely hire them again (I have plans for the front) and I highly recommend their services.

Sheldon and his crew are second to none! Garden Environments can handle the large job or the small--they can plant a few trees for you (like they did for me) or they can create and implement a design for your entire yard (installing plants as well as patios and retaining walls like they did for a client of mine). I love their dedication to native plants and would highly recommend them if you are looking to revamp your outdoor space.

Great experience working with Sheldon and Barbara. Barbara created a beautiful plan for both our front and back yard, and the team did an excellent job putting in a new driveway and drainage system, as well as adding on a lovely covered deck and gate. Their carpenter is great! What's more, through their contagious passion and with their input as our guidance, we have developed a love for gardening and increased confidence doing our own planting and landscape maintenance - a true gift! Would work with them again in a heartbeat.

I've been in my home for almost 15 years. Yard work really isn't my thing. But I do love my yard to look great. I invited Sheldon to come to my home to take a look at the plantings in front of the house. They were overgrown and I just really had no idea what to do with it. Sheldon asked a few questions about what I wanted but honestly, I had no idea.
I stepped back and told them to just go for it and do whatever they wanted. I ended up with an amazing wall and walkway with a multitude of different plants, bushes and even some cool trees.
Thank you so much for everything. I can now smile every time I come home.

Garden Environments recently planted a 45 gal potted Japanese maple in our yard. The job was done to the highest standards. We have used them on multiple occasions in the past, the most notable being their design and construction of a major project involving a 2 pond water feature. The job they did with this project was truly outstanding. At last check, they had pictures of that project on their website. I highly recommend Garden Environments without reservation for whatever outdoor garden project large or small that you have in mind.
I hired Garden Environments to design and install the landscape in my front yard. Their design consisted of a antique brick sidewalk, planting bed, and new plants throughout. I have a 1938 house so I wanted the look and feel to match the period. The brick they installed looks like it was original to the house and I have received numerous compliments on my landscaping. Their team was professional and got the work done much faster than I originally thought they would. I highly recommend Garden Environments for any install and look forward to having them design my backyard.
Garden Environments did an absolutely superb job at our house. We contacted with them for both major landscaping (including drainage), a deck, and later a rain garden. Sheldon Galloway was always professional and communicated clearly, making many individual visits with me. The work teams were professional. They were timely as far as possible given some crazy weather conditions. Quality of work is excellent-- my architect daughter noted details about the deck construction that clearly went above the standard.
I've used Garden Environments many times for multiple jobs around my property (including plants, sod, patios, and fencing) and each time I've gotten the same consistent, great service. I'm pleased with the accurate estimates as well as the workers who are always polite, respectful, and patient. Garden Environments listens to my requests/concerns and follows up with knowledgeable information. Great work, great people, great price. And I love that workers are paid a living wage!

We used Garden Environments for a full lot design plan, and have implemented about 1/3 of that plan thus far (as we are doing it in phases). Our experience has been phenomenal. The design was gorgeous, and the designer and owner are a pleasure to work with. The installation stayed on schedule (aside from Mother Nature giving us some serious rain), and the landscape team working at our home were very polite and professional. The work was top notch. I'm fairly critical and can find no flaws in their work - it far exceeded my expectations. We did a stone patio and wall, rain garden, gorgeous stump climbing wall, and full plantings of surrounding areas, and it's stunning. Highly recommend!

From the first time we met Sheldon Galloway and discussed planting a native pollinator garden in our backyard, we felt totally comfortable that he had the knowledge and ability to help us realize our dream. He was completely professional throughout our project, listening carefully when he visited our yard, all the way through the installation of our beautiful garden. We wanted to focus on plants native to N. C. when possible, having something for the pollinators throughout all the seasons and having a garden that would be somewhat easy to maintain. He took all our requests seriously and put together a plan and a quote that we felt would work best for us. Even though the garden installation ended up being in early November (because of problems with tree removal timing, a rainy period just when we wanted to plant, etc.), he and his crew did a wonderful job! Our garden was glorious from spring until now!
He was very dependable about coming when he said he would, doing the things he had planned to do and keeping the price in the quote he gave us. We would highly recommend Sheldon Galloway and Garden Environments!
