5.0 Sylvia A. Newcastle, WA

We hired Brian for landscaping, redesign and clean up in front and back of our house. We also needed to rebuild and redesign some steps. I knew from the first time we spoke how professional and knowledgeable he was not to mentioned passionate about work he does. All this was evident in the final work. I canâ t recommend Brian highly enough and would definitely be hiring him again. Hard working and dedicated to his job not only being done right but with attention to detail to every part of the project. His design ideas were great. The reconstruction of the steps was amazing and he gave our house both front and back a total facelift Great personality, funny and kind. Thank you Brian for all your hard work.

Brian did a great job asking questions and providing what I wanted.

2.0 Dennis S. Redmond, WA

We hired Brian to install pavers and drainage. Brian suggested a sump pump. I paid him over 14k and the job is not complete after several months. He also does not return phone calls or texts. The work that he did complete looks good-

5.0 Kyle B. Newcastle, WA

Brian did an amazing job on our backyard. He rebuilt an existing water feature in our yard, installed a new patio and retaining wall, and planted some beautiful plants throughout our yard. Brian is a super nice guy who is extremely knowledgeable about plants. You can tell heâ s passionate about what he does, heâ s an artist when it comes to designing beautiful landscaping. Canâ t recommend Brian enough!!

So thankful to have found Brian, owner of Black Forest Landscaping. Brian made arrangements right away to come and provide me a quote on cleaning up my yard, which I accepted, and he began work within a couple days. Brian's knowledge of the wide variety of ornamental shrubs and trees that in my landscaping was amazing! He took great care in trimming everything, cleaning up all the beds, hauling debris away and offering suggestions for the future. Brian also dug out problem roots that made our pavers uneven and then brought in sand and gravel to reset them and beautify the area. It looks absolutely amazing. I will definitely be using Brian in the fall for clean up and again in spring. The yard looks stunningly beautiful. I would definitely recommend Brian to anyone who is looking to have superior work done on their landscape as he definitely is a professional.

5.0 Wendy S. Renton, WA

Black Forest landscaping surpassed my expectations with above standard knowledge and quality of work. Brian is reliable and puts care into his work with the customer needs in mind. I defiantly recommend Black Forest Landscaping, Brian demonstrates knowledge, care, and dependability.

3.0 Laura S. Renton, WA

Although I was initially happy with the French drain - after a year it failed and I had puddles in my yard. I called Brian and he came out. He said the reason was that the bark was moving into the drain on a high slope area. He said he would send me an estimate to install some boards to block this from happening. I never heard from him. I texted him a couple of weeks later to ask about the estimate and he did not reply. I am embarrassed that I referred my boss to him before this because apparently, he flakes out. Because of the slope and design, I will always have trouble with debris in the French drain.

5.0 Anne P. Bellevue, WA

Brain and Roberto were very easy to work with. Our project was quite large and involved coordinating with a neighbor on some details. When issues came up Brain worked closely with us to come up with satisfactory solutions to us and the neighbor. I was amazed how quickly the project was done. Roberto who did most of the hard labor was fantastic. He is like a machine. What I like most is Brian before they started had a vision of what the end result would be and was able to clearly explain it to my wife and I. This was not the experience that we had with other contractors. I would highly recommend Black Forest Landscape for any project. I'm sure we will work with them again.

5.0 Robin S. Bellevue, WA

My waterfall had to be rebuilt due to leaking (tree roots invading). Brian and crew did the most beautiful job; it is truly a work of art and so well done. The waterfall itself looks like it came right out of nature; it doesn't look man-made in the slightest. I plan to hire them for my outdoor lighting, as well! Well done!
