    5.0 Beth S. Chapel Hill, NC

    I could not be happier with Matt and his team. They did a beautiful job with our landscaping! Matt is so easy to work with and is knowledgeable and creative. He is always responsive and easy to communicate with. He had a vision for the work but was equally interested in our ideas and did his best to bring them to fruition. His rates are very reasonable, and he works quickly and efficiently. It is such a pleasure to look out our windows or walk out the front door and see our beautifully landscaped property. Matt is a very talented professional and I highly, highly recommend him.

    5.0 Phil W. Carrboro, NC

    Matt and his crew were superb craftsmen and easy to work with throughout the project. They made me feel that first and foremost they were concerned about how pleased I was with their work, and they consistently maintained very high quality standards. Overall, excellent work, excellent communication. Highly recommended.

    Matt gave my gravel driveway pad a much needed "face-lift". Great work at a reasonable price.

    5.0 Tiber F. Hillsborough, NC

    Excellent professional service. They responded quickly and were able to do the leave cleanup abd removal work we needed within the week. The yard looks great all tidied up. Thanks!

    5.0 Mart Y. Durham, NC

    Matt was very easy to work with. His pricing was very fair and he worked hard to please us and give us exactly what we asked for. His crew was very friendly and hardworking. We definitely plan to use him for future projects. We would recommend Matt for any landscaping or hardscaping needs you have.

    5.0 Scott H. Chapel Hill, NC

    Just moved here from Austin, TX and needed to completely redo the landscaping at the house we bought in Chapel Hill. Got a number of bids and decided to go with Matt Swanson. Very glad I did. They performed excellent work. Fast , efficient, and most importantly, very well done. I'll definitely hire them for more jobs in the future.

    5.0 Kristina H. Hillsborough, NC

    Swanson Landscapes was the ideal fit for our landscaping project. It’s rare to find a true professional and craftsman capable of bringing all aspects of a project together. Matt was on time, courteous, and brought the perfect balance of design expertise and ability to integrate our ideas. He spent the extra time with us on plant selection and saw opportunities to solve other integrated landscape issues simultaneously—saving us costs. He showed a surprising level of cost-awareness and contacted us in advance for purchase approval when one of our hardscaping choices was priced extra high by local vendors. His team is equipped and skilled at a range of landscaping jobs from engineering drainage solutions, earth-moving and clearing areas to high-end finishing work on hardscapes. Their care and attention to detail is hard to find at the midsize project range. I highly recommend this local business for any size or project at any degree of complexity. Matt is a true designer/problem-solver who you can trust.

    They are great at communication, work fast and diligently. They deserve all the business they can get.

    5.0 Diane P. Chapel Hill, NC

    Matt Swanson has a eye for what looks good. He understood my need for balance in the design. He absolutely brought to life seemingly the red maple I had planted in honor of my mom when she died. He pruned and planted so her tree was highlighted and not obsured like it was. I am grateful for this beautiful memorial. His crew worked long and hard, doing a good job cleaning up. I was so pleased with the final result that I hired him for two other projects.
