    When I called HL Design, I spoke with Catherine. We set an appointment for the next day. Dave, the owner, came out and I showed him exactly what I wanted. He recommended Nicolock Pavers for the patio I wanted. Before he left, I had a detailed proposal that was not only fair, but included everything that would be done. I hired him on the spot. NO BS! Straightforward and honest. Dave and his awesome crew came out 8 days later and completed our patio in one day. Let me tell you, Dave's crew took an ugly space under our deck in the back of our townhouse, that wouldn't grow grass, and transformed it into a thing of beauty. Over the past year and a half, we have had quite a few major projects done in our house. This one, by far, was the most pleasurable one. I cannot say enough about HL Design, Dave Howe and his amazing crew. If I could give ten stars, I would.

    Dave and the crew at HLD were a pleasure to work with. The quality of the work was first class and exceeded our expectations. The crew was organized and professional. The finished product, a 90 ft. Interlocking paver walkway is beautiful and has caught the eye of several neighbors. Choosing HLD was the best decision we could have made. Thank you Dave and the HLD team.

    David and Crew were very responsive. The pricing was extremely fair. Team did a great job. They worked above and beyond the contract. I would highly recommend them.

    5.0 Jeanne H. New Market, MD

    HL Design was an awesome contractor to work with. They were the first to come out and give us an estimate, they gave us the best price, they explained about the materials to be used and answered all our questions. Before the work began, we had to change some of the original design and they did that. They were here and on time and completed the job on time. The work crew were fantastic and did a super job. Also on the plus side they are a local small business. We highly recommend HL Design!

    Good work

    3.0 Anthony P. Ellicott City, MD

    I do not normally write reviews, but I feel like I should let other people know about this company. I could write an entire essay on my experience with them but I will try and keep it short. I hired HL to redo my entire front lawn with new walkways, retaining walls, plants, mulch, and trees. I spent over $17,000 and thought I was getting a great deal. Dave and his group were very nice at first but once work had begun things quickly changed. They would say nice stuff to my face but I would catch them saying bad things about me behind my back. They had horrible communication with me, they rushed to get to the next job, and I had several problems with their work. The amount of stress they caused me was truly unfair to me. I eventually got most of the problems fixed. One of those problems was they did not install weed fabric under all my beds as discussed. They came back and fixed it but did a horrible job. They also put barely enough mulch back to cover the fabric and dirt so now I have a literal jungle in most areas. I was not happy before I paid but no amount of money is worth the issues they caused me. They even put grass seed in the mulched areas that are now grass. I would have tried to get them to come back out for the fourth time but it is not worth the stress. I expect a little maintenance but my yard looks nothing that was agreed to. I will have to fix it myself in the spring but I had to write this review because everyday I look at my yard and I am not pleased. Reading the other reviews makes mine stick out but I would not recommend them. Spend your money on a better company. UPDATE: Owner reached out to remedy the issue. They came out and pulled out all old mulch, weed, and weed fabric and replaced them. Looks much better. They seem to have taken more care this time and I hope it works. Fabric seems to have been put down better with more mulch too. I hope the mulch is deep enough with a combination of fabric to stop most weeds in the spring.

    Awesome company. Quality work at a fair price. They actually use their phones. I would hire again and definitely recommend.
