This morning we had our Lawn RE-DO! Looks amazing – trimmed and cleaned and cut-out the edges on the planting areas – looks awesome! They cut the branch off on the roof and BEST OF ALL – they cleaned out all that mess on the side of the house next to Mr. Hutchins – all those branches etc. and all those droppings from those pine trees. Our yard has NEVER looked this good! Two guys – so pleasant and so polite – they did an excellent job and worked constantly – please tell Mark what an excellent job they did – couldn’t be more pleased and it was a fantastic Mother’s Day Gift!!


The paver patio A1 designed and installed has been one of the single best upgrades we’ve made to our home. It’s like having another room to entertain and enjoy beautiful sunsets. A1 was fast, meticulous, and always professional. A1 even had some great ideas to take our outdoor space to the next level. We continue to use A1 for jobs both large and small and we always recommend A1 to family and friends.

About 4 years ago my wife and I purchased a piece of property and had a new home built. As you could imagine we were surprised to realize that at the end of the process lawn and landscaping was not included. We basically had a house that sat in the middle of a mud pit. Faced with the daunting task of starting from the lawn up, we sought out professional help. As many people know there is a plethora of landscape companies out there. Through all of our research and personal inquiry A1 Hardscape and Landscape came highly recommended. So we contacted A1 to help us. Over the last three years A1 has completed 3 major projects at our home starting with our lawn, a hardscape walkway, and a split rail fence for our Australian Shepard. We have been so impressed with the quality of their work that in the spring A1 will be landscaping our entire property. From start to finish we have been so pleased with the quality of their work, the level of professionalism with in their company, and their affordable pricing. I would highly recommend them without reservation to any homeowner, and we look forward to working with them in the future.

A1 has been our landscape contractor for the last 3 years. A1 comes in the spring to do our mulching and edging and general cleanup. In the fall they come and clean up our 2 1/2 acre property, having many trees that lose their leaves. About 3 years ago A1 did a beautiful large patio and 2 sidewalks using pavers. It turned out just as Mark Rutan, the owner, diagramed the job. A1 is very professional and they cleanup after they’re done, leaving us nothing to complain about. I must comment on A1’s workers. They get there early and stay late with little down time for breaks, thus getting the job done in a timely manner. They are also very courteous when we ask them a question or even want to make a change and very obliging. It is a pleasure to have A1 work for us, and we actually look for different things for them to do during the year. A1 cleaned up and disposed of 10 large hemlocks that fell during the Hurricane Sandy. This was done very professionally as is all their work. I would not hesitate to recommend A1 to anyone, as I know they will get what they paid for. Great Job!
