Testimonials

Northern VA Landscaping was superb. We had drainage issues from the hill with no clear vision on how to proceed. They created a wonderful oasis including a new patio, firepit, retaining wall, driveway extension, front walkway, new gate, dry creek bed, and re-grading the land. Their craftsmanship is excellent, but it's their level of professionalism that left an impression. Kenesi, Ricardo, and the whole crew was always early to the site, cleaned up each day, ensured minimal impact to neighbors, and took extra steps to ensure a job was done correctly. We had a few design changes during construction due to the land grading, and it's clear that NVL always does the job correctly the first time.The owner Ibi is fantastic to work with. He's patient, knowledgeable, professional, and still checks in to see how we're enjoying the yard. The pictures can't truly capture the transformation (see the before), but NVL was the perfect choice and we're extremely pleased with how everything turned out.

We had an amazing experience with Kenesi. He’s professional and knowledgeable about what he does. We had several things looked at and he always provides a variety of recommendations. He has done so much for us and would highly recommend this company based on the number of projects we had taken care of. Free tree cutting, fence placement, growing our grass, planting trees, building our mailbox and more. We could not have asked for better service with an amazing company with amazing people to work with.
Northern Virginia Landscaping was amazing from beginning to end! They consulted me on my best options for hardscaping and concrete. They clearly knew more than the 9 other contractors I spoke with. Did an amazing job with their masonry, laying down a new brick walkway and pouring a new concrete driveway.They were responsive and when the project was going to take longer because of their strict quality assurance processes, they called me about it and kept me in the loop. 5 out of 5 for both their quality of work and their communication.

They did an amazing job, the customer service was great, and had good prices. I worked with Ibi and Kenesi and both were a pleasure to work with. They asked questions when in doubt and double checked BEFORE they begin our hardscaping and landscaping projects. They also made sure to walk the property with us during and after to make sure we were satisfied. After dealing with more than 5 different landscaping companies in the area, I can say that they are one of the best out there. Thank you so much!

Northern Virginia Landscaping did an outstanding job - they were quick, professional, and very easy to work with. Highly recommend! Everything looks great!
We are so pleased with how Northern Virginia Landscaping shaped the landscaping in front of our town home. Throughout the process, we felt that Ibi listened to our concerns about our front yard and methodically addressed all of them. He also patiently provided the information that we needed to get HOA approval for the project.When it came time to do the work, Kenesi and his team did a great job -- even working on the weekend to get the job done in a timely manner. Also, when we had questions and needed follow-up work, they came back right away to remove a bush and trim another. We are thrilled with the way everything turned out!

The customer service representative was very nice and professional. However, the company charges $150 fee for an on-site estimate. This is a bit much for a 20 min distance between their company and my house.

We were very impressed on how professional and speedy their service was. We used their services for tree trimming and landscaping in our property and would not hesitate to use them again.
Fantastic experience with Northern Virginia Landscaping - highly recommend them due to their professionalism, responsive communications, and the helpful nature of their employees! NVL was easy to work with, understood our vision for our backyard, and had competitive prices. If you're considering a job, you should talk with Ibi and the team. We would absolutely utilize their services again!

The NVL folks were extremely professional and arrived on time and cleaned up when they left. The wife and I were exceptionally pleased with stone stairway up our back garden and the hundreds of plantings from trees to ferns and junipers to cone flowers. We would use them again and plan to have them do yearly garden maintenance.

Incredible results because of Northern Virginia Landscaping's knowledge base and responsiveness.We purchased a house that had a raised garden bed near our basement wall, which always allowed water to enter the house during heavy rainstorms. Two previous companies did some work on our house in past years, with lackluster results.I interviewed several companies this year to conquer the continuous problem. Northern Virginia Landscape was the only company willing to take out our raised garden bed and put in a french drain. Like the other companies they wanted to fix the downspout in the neighbor's section and straighten out the drainage hose that was previously laid with great contortions.Northern Virginia Landscape also offered to move my hostas from the old garden bed to the new lower one, before adding stones. But I am so scared of water entering the house, I don't want to water plants in that space, so I opted for just rocks to drain the water.Northern Virginia Landscape was timely and incredibly respectful of the neighbor's garden while working on our project.Northern Virginia Landscape even came out a second time to explain their proposal for a solution, this time to benefit my husband who had been at work the first time.We were fortunate enough to start the project a week after we signed the contract. Even though the company slotted 3 days for the project, they were basically done in 1 day. They returned the next morning for a couple of hours for finishing details.Always informative and patient, they have effectively resolved a worrisome problem we had in our front yard.We highly recommend Northern Virginia Landscaping.
I had a great experience landscaping my yard with Northern Virginia Landscaping. They removed everything in my yard and completely re-landscaped it, and I could not be more happy with the results. Kenesi was the project manager and designed the landscaping. He was always available to answer questions and make changes to the design until I was fully happy with it. Once it was time to install, the team was on time, respectful, and hard working. They paid attention to detail and made sure everything was perfect before completing the project. I also had a sprinkler system installed, and the team NVL hired was excellent. They taught me to use the system and returned to make changes when the sod was not responding well to some of the watering set up. I highly recommend using NVL for any landscaping project.

We recently hired Northern Virginia Landscaping to fix the grading in our front yard and also re-design/plant the garden in our front yard. They've done a great job from the initial consultation to the actual project management. The owner Ibi is very knowledgeable about the water intrusion issues we faced in our house and proposed grading change and additional drainage to fix the water intrusion problem. The project started timely and Ibi and the project manager Kenesei have always kept great communications with us on a daily basis to inform us about the progress. We are very happy with their work and would highly recommend them for landscaping projects!
The team did a fantastic job on our backyard. They were thorough and efficient and now it looks great! Thanks!

We used Northern Virginia Landscapers for a small project of adding a small paver pad on the side of our house to house our trash cans, and to elongate a bed with mulch. Kenesi was very prompt in getting us a detailed estimate and answering any questions and making changes as necessary. It was easy to schedule our work (in fact, an opening came up and they were able to fit us in even sooner than they originally thought). We are really happy with how the work ended up and they did a great job making sure the pavers were level and perfectly aligned. Their work is a lot better than our sidewalks and driveway pavers that were installed by another company during our original house build. We will definitely use them for any future landscaping needs in the future.

Northern Virginia Landscaping installed sod in our front and back yards, cleaned up and did mulch, and planted two new trees. Our yard looks amazing and we're really happy with the work! They were prompt and responsive. Would definitely recommend.

We had to have our backyard completely redone after our new home was built and I’m very pleased we went with NVL. Kenesei and his amazing crew (who were the same the entire time) came on time and finished the project with only a very short delay. I wish I had take. Better “before” photos to show what a difference they made in the grading of the lawn which hadn’t been well finished by our home builder.We had very bad drainage issues on both sides of our house which they took care of and added in cost effective but nice looking rock landscaping with a walkway.Kenesei was also extremely patient about a change I wanted to make in adding more sod and moving plants around. Everything was power washed and care instructions after completion were clear. We are thinking about doing even more detailed work in the future and will definitely use them again!

We had a large scale project that involved replacing our entire back yard (grading, landscaping, planting, and sod) as well as both sides of our house, prep work for a shed, and adding drainage. In all aspects of the planning Northern VA provided multiple options to best tailor to our needs as well as provided excellent and professional guidance. There were multiple times when they provided me an alternative option that would more effectively accomplish what I was seeking while also saving money because they truly had our best interest in mind. We're thrilled with our yard space and were really pleased to work with them. I've recommended them to multiple neighbors already, and would suggest them to anyone looking for a great company to work with.

Normally I don’t leave reviews , but Northern Virginia Landscaping did a great job on my sod installation. The job was professionally done, and held to the estimated timeline! The team did a great job cleaning the worksite afterwards and were responsive even after the job to answer all of my questions! Highly recommend.

We used this service two years ago and came back again and are happy. Our lawn was uneven so we had one bed raised and stones installed. Would definitely use Kenesi again.

We moved into our new home and immediately experienced major drainage issues all around the house and yard because of how close the houses are built. I did my research and decided to go with this company because I felt that they would do a complete job (vs. hiring multiple companies to do individual projects). Our work included burying all our downspouts and extending them to the edge of the yard, regrading, sod installation, landscaping, and river jack installation. Kenesi was my main point person for scheduling and planning. He was always very courteous on the phone and in person, and took the time to explain the work and make suggestions. When he wasn't available to do our initial consultation, Marco came and communicated all our needs back to the team. Our schedule was a bit delayed because of rain, but Marco and his crew showed up on time each day and worked efficiently. After the first day when they had buried all our downspouts, we had heavy rain and I saw immediate results and improvements with the drainage around our house. I appreciated that he also checked in from time to time to make sure I was happy with the design of the new mulch bed and where the scrubs and japanese maple would be installed. We made a couple small changes during the project, but the team made sure everything still went smoothly. I am very happy with the work they do and will definitely have them come back for future projects.

We hired Northern Virginia landscaping to redo our entire yard. They were incredibly professional throughout the entire process. They helped us coordinate with a landscaping designer to plan the entire project. They went out of their way to find special materials so that the new work would coordinate with our existing hardscaping. Their hardscaping is the best I have ever seen. We had them do multiple stone retaining walls, stucco walls, a new driveway, expanded patio, and more. It all turned out great. Ibi was great to work with. Any time I had a question or needed to make a change, he was very easy to communicate and work with. I would definitely hire them again for another project.

Kenesi and team were amazing! I’ve used other companies for our Spring mulch/yard cleanup, and they were good, but always left something that needed to be done. Not this time! Everything was done 100%. I’ll definitely be using them again. Highly recommend. Give them a call!

Northern VA Landscaping was exactly the company we needed to find. Ibi, Marco, and the entire team finally solved our water intrusion problems. They ripped up our old patio, regraded, and installed beautiful hardscaping, which has kept water away from our foundation and looks incredible! They gave us a quick and cost effective estimate for the amount work we needed to get done as quickly as possible. We even navigated street parking and a shared driveway situation flawlessly. You seriously cannot go wrong with this crew. We loved them so much we are bringing them back for our front yard.

Ibi, Marco and the entire NVL team were an absolute dream to work with. We have had water issues and they helped us re-pitch, install several French drains, and hardscape our entire back yard in Arlington. The crew was extremely professional and made sure everything looked perfect before leaving the site on the final day. Ibi was excellent at communicating and helped us navigate some tricky street parking issues. We cannot wait to have them back out to help us with our front yard. 10/10 would recommend them for all your landscaping and hardscaping needs!

NVL was great to work with---our project was to build a front portico, new front steps and front walkway, with new plantings and landscape in the front yard. Ibi, Ricardo, and Kensie were always responsive to questions, quickly solving any problems or addressing unexpected issues. The finished job looks great and is really well done. Ricardo is particularly demanding, he ensures that things be done correctly, attends to details, lets you know exactly what is going on with the work, and was a pleasure to work with. Ibi communicated regularly and consistently throughout the job, from the first drawings and plans, through the construction, and final landscaping--he always followed up on questions, weather delays, etc. and was helpful in numerous ways throughout the project. Highly recommend NVL. We will be using them again for our next project.

Northern Virginia Landscaping was fantastic from start to finish for our backyard landscaping and hardscaping install. We brought Yardzen designs to them for our backyard, and they were very detail-oriented, noticing scale issues with the designs. They problem-solved and came up with great solutions. The quality of their work is top notch, and our project manager, Ibi, was responsive and a pleasure to work with. Highly recommended!

I decided to reach out to Northern Virginia landscaping after having a couple bad experiences with past contractors. Ibi came out and recommended great ideas to redo my front yard. They redid my driveway, walkway and my front porch. Kenesi was outstanding by keeping me updated on everything that was being done. After my project was complete I was more than happy with the work that was done, so I decided to call them back and had them redo my walkway and steps in the backyard. If you're looking for a great landscaping company I'd recommend scheduling a consultation with them they went above my expectations. Thank you Northern Virginia Landscaping I'll definitely be working with you guys on all my landscaping needs.

We worked with Kenesi as our main point of contact and were very pleased with his responsiveness and level of professionalism! Ours was about a 3-day project that involved some simple landscape design (boxwoods and a new cherry blossom tree), removal/replacement of a tree, new sod in front/side/backyard, installation of natural steppers and hardscaping with river jack along the front yard and perimeter of the house. It’s been about 2 weeks since the project and we are very happy with the outcome. We will be working with them for any future needs!

Recently had NV Landscaping design and install full yard landscaping, add full yard irrigation system, and full yard landscape lighting. I chose NV Landscaping off of research and referral....and I couldn't be more happy with my decision! The team was professional, knowledgeable, and friendly/easy to work with. They met or exceeded my expectations with timeliness, quality of products and work, and budget. My project was relatively expensive but I felt it was a good value for the work I asked them to do. I will be using them again in the future and confidently would recommend them to anyone who is looking for outdoor work for maintenance or small/large projects! Call out to Ibi and Kenesi who made sure I was 100% satisfied with the work. Nice to see customer satisfaction still a priority for some businesses!!!

I just had a new patio installed by Northern Virginia Landscaping and it looks amazing! Ibi, Marco and the entire team at NVL were easy to work with and always paid close attention to my requests. I even requested a few changes be made along the way and they did not hesitate to adjust course and make it happen.The result was the beautiful pavers patio as seen in the pics. And they did it all in 5 days! In addition to the patio, NVL also enlarged my storm drain by my back door and replaced a downspout on a gutter. I used to have major flooding issues with my house and if I lost power I’d have to rush to start the generator (to keep the main sump pump running) or risk my sump overflowing. This made it incredibly stressful if I wasn’t home. After the new patio and other changes above were made, my flooding issue has resolved. I barely got any water in my sump after the last 4 day rainstorm! That saved me $8k+ as I would’ve otherwise had to buy a self-starting generator.All the staff at NVL are a pleasure to work with and their prices are very competitive. I couldn’t be happier with my patio and I can’t wait to start entertaining with it. I’d highly recommend Northern Virginia Landscaping to anyone considering a new patio or other major landscaping project!

False advertisement on Google as offering “Landscape Management”, “Cleanup Jobs”, and “Proper Pruning”. They also charge for estimates.

They installed boulder and rock stepper steps down our backyard/woods terrace. It’s a really great design with natural materials that goes well with the existing landscape, and is more durable than the crumbling brick masonry we replaced. The whole team was very polite and professional, especially Kenesi.

Where to start? For years I've dealt with the big name garden centers but they have become more and more unresponsive and unreliable even when I had a job costing $10,000s. So I decided to try N. Va. Landscaping because of their great reviews. I am so happy I did! We wanted to put in stone steps on a sharply sloping hill plus a stone wall along our driveway. Ibi came out, we discussed several options plus he came up with solutions to other problems we were having. I contracted him to put in the steps, install a channel drain, and build the wall. His team were there on time and did a wonderful job. As can be expected, there were some tweeks that were needed and they came right out to correct. We are looking forward to having the wall built in September. Since they did such a wonderful job, I have contracted them to add some plantings to enhance our steps as well as help to control natural erosion. He was also kind enough to bring me some much needed mulch in preparation for the wall installation.This is a seriously good young landscaper who does a great job.

I contacted Northern Virginia landscaping to get an estimate for some landscaping work at my backyard. Kenesi called me to get more details and later he set up some time to visit my house. He was very professional and respectful, after understanding our needs, he provided me a few options and I agreed to go with one of the options.Due to weather they were running a bit late and they informed about that which was great in terms of setting the expectations. A few weeks later Kensei and his team arrived to execute the work. His crew were very professional, hardworking and ensured to clean everything when they were done. I enjoyed working with them and I will ask for their help again if I have more work in the future. Thank you Northern Virginia Landscaping team for amazing work!

Could not be more satisfied and pleased with NOVA and their team. They go above and beyond with experienced staff, quality products, and professional service! Our project involved hardscape and plantings. Throughout, they listened, responded knowledgeably & promptly, and worked diligently to resolve unanticipated problems—clear and consistent communications throughout the project. Beautiful results. I would hire again and again.

Ibi, Ricardo, and the team at Northern Virginia Landscaping helped us totally transform our yard into a true outdoor living space. We used them for new and renovated hardscaping, landscape installation, lighting, and new sod. From the initial consultation, Ibi was professional, flexible, and full of good ideas. His team works hard and are also flexible with any challenges the job site throws their way. I highly recommend Northern Virginia Landscaping!

Hire this company! We used NOVA Landscape Company to repair an existing concrete patio for us. The patio had mossed joints, uneven surfaces and needed a good cleaning. The team worked diligently for 3 days and it is like a brand new patio patio now. We are so happy with the results! They worked efficiently, they kept the area neat and clean and did an amazing job. The foreman that I worked with was professional and very responsive to my needs and concerns and and answered all emails and texts promptly. They even cleaned a small patio on the property at no charge.I have worked in the landscape industry for 15 years as a designer, I am now a stay at home with my kids, but I definitely recommend this company to my friends and family.Also pricing was very reasonable and fair.Great company!

Excellent, responsive and thoughtful landscapers! We were not sure how to deal with our mud pit of a backyard. When they visited for a quote they offered a few suggestions, and we settled on a dry well, grading and sod. The results are amazing and no more flooded mud pit! Great communication, and fast work.
