Elena and I are delighted with the landscape redesign project that you completed for us in Kensington. The work performed by Presidential adds a great deal of curb appeal to our home, in addition to making practical improvements like the addition of off‐street parking, a new walkway, shrub planting, retaining walls, and more. Please feel free to use us as a reference.

For the benefit of anyone else who is considering Presidential Custom Contracting for work, please let me recap the scope of what was accomplished:

  • Problem‐solving of where to put the driveway and assistance in helping us remove a tree that was blocking the best option.
  • Design of a very attractive solution‐‐with advice on how to avoid unnecessary costs
  • Engineering plans for the project, needed for construction and county permits
  • Significant excavation
  •  Addition of new retaining walls and renovation of additional stone walls
  • Installation of double‐wide concrete parking, right‐of‐way access, and walkway
  • Relocation of existing shrubs and addition of new plants
  • Installation of custom iron handrails

Presidential Landscapes deployed a sizable team to accomplish the work on schedule, and the quality of workmanship was outstanding. There was an unexpected surprise (a huge rock under the soil), but the team resolved the problem. There was a minor problem‐‐a repair task for an existing wall‐‐where we didn’t like the results, but you resolved the problem within hours.

You and your crew were easy to work with. The project was completed on schedule and within the negotiated cost estimate. We recommend you highly.

I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and your crew for completing the hardscape project at my home in accordance with my critical completion deadlines and to a high degree of construction quality.

On April 21, 2010 I signed a contract with Presidential for a Project that included the demolition of existing timber planters, and brick pavers, in order to construct new modular stone planters, install drainage piping and new flagstone paving over the side yard walkway and rear yard patio, at my home in Bethesda Maryland. We had a wedding planned for May 22, 2010, and you made a commitment when we signed the contract that you would in fact complete the work by May 12, 2010.
We were very pleased to have materials delivered on April 28, as promised and work begin on April 29. Despite a few days lost to rain, you and your crew were on site every day, in sufficient force to keep the work progressing in a timely manner. You and your men were receptive to my input in determining final layout and configuration of the walls, were willing to make minor adjustments to the basic design that seemed appropriate as the construction developed, and were prepared to immediately and effectively address any areas of re-work that were needed to meet my expectations. In short, you and your team were highly cooperative, very reasonable, extremely flexible, and genuinely concerned with providing a high quality project to my complete

I was especially appreciative of your consistent and active involvement in overseeing and
executing the work to ensure its proper completion. That level of customer service and quality control seems rare these days in the residential construction market, but, it was your direct involvement that kept the project moving at the required pace, while maintaining the high level of workmanship that I had come to expect.

As I mentioned before you left the site, we have a few more landscaping projects planned for later in the year or early next year, and I will certainly look forward to working with you again. I will also be very happy to recommend your services to any of my friends and neighbors.

Thanks again.

Presidential has provided my family and our home with exceptional service over the past several years. Presidential has maintained our property on a weekly basis for several years and keeps a consistent attention to detail with every visit. We have had them perform several larger projects as well; including a front walkway, stone staircase, and back patio. The projects all fit our budget, were completed within the allotted time frame, and have been regularly maintained per our request. We’re pleased with the creativity of the projects and the industry knowledge that provided us with several design options. 

I highly recommend Presidential Landscapes and continue to use their services on a regular basis.
