What Clients Are Saying About TERRAFIRMA

Tracy H.

We had a very big project, including tree removal, removal of large pavers, building of a retaining wall, stairs from the house to the lake front, and landscaping. We hired Terrafirma and we are so glad we did.

Pat R.

Terrafirma just completed a 2nd major residential landscaping project in the last 5 years for us. They have strong capabilities in hardscaping, lighting, irrigation and plants/lawns. Excellent knowledge in a variety of areas is important when we need to make modifications during the project.

Greg R.

John and the Terrafirma team re-landscaped our house in the summer of 2023. They delivered on time and on budget, were transparent throughout the process and most importantly, did high-quality work that we’re delighted with.

The project involved removal of an old in-ground pool and re-design of the back yard. Once the design was complete, the project was assigned to Bill Lytle, who was instrumental in getting everything done on time and within budget. Bill was wonderful to work with through the whole project.

Mukesh N.

In addition to the great service that Terrafirma offers, its staff is not just friendly but I say extremely knowledgeable and also care about their work quality and go extra mile to create artistic as well as technically correct landscapes. I say they are true 5-star professionals.

Christine B.

My husband and I worked with Terrafirma’s landscape designer, John McBride, for our home’s recent renovation and new build. John’s design integrated both new Hardscape and Landscape with our existing traditional well established gardens and tree beds. John McBride’s easy going, trustworthy professionalism

Kathy K.

We recently moved into a new home and needed everything – water treatment (we are on well and septic), sprinkler system and grass. Terra Firma came highly recommended from a friend so we met the owner, he walked the property with us, explained everything and signed on. The project managers assigned were fantastic, they don’t cut corners

Beautiful landscaping design done in our yard. Attentive customer service.

Rudolf K.

I had a great experience with TerraFirma. John and Donny and their crew did a great job designing and installing stone stairs and a patio at my home. The work was done on time and on budget. The new stairs and patio have totally transformed that part of my property.

John M.

Eric and Dave at Terrafirma have been great to work with for many years. The quality of the work is wonderful and communication about projects has always been through. Thank you for making landscaping easy!

I could not be happier with my new porch and sidewalks installed by TerraFirma. I appreciated the helpful advice of the designer and the expert workmanship of their crew. Thank you for adding some beauty to my home.

Eric and his team at Terrafirma have performed excellent landscaping work for me over the last 10 years. They are always on time, detail oriented and Sara in the office is very responsive.

John S.

We worked with Terrafirma to rework our driveway, front walk, install a sprinkler system, and clear out some dead trees. Really appreciated the expertise and professionalism of the whole team, as well as their breadth of knowledge on all things exterior.

Ariane A.

NEW PATIO…Out with the old and in with the new, patio that is. What a great job by Terrafirma and more specifically the project supervisor John McBride. From our initial meeting to discuss the project to completion of the job, John kept us informed of all the steps involved, work schedules, rain delays, options involved and answered any questions we had in a timely manner. Communication of any kind was completed very quickly. The on-site workers were very thorough with their work and very professional. They always left our property in a clean and neat manner at the end of each day. John always took time to explain any options we might have, when there were decisions to make, giving us pros and cons to help us decide what styles, colors, designs involved with our project. You always take into consideration the history and reputation of a company, when you are seeking someone to do your project, but it was our initial meeting with John that made us feel very comfortable in selecting Terrafirma.

Erik came out and gave me a very reasonable quote that in my opinion didn’t even compare to other companies quotes, with all that he had to offer.

Make sure when you’re doing your search you’re truly comparing apples to apples because this company truly does the best work and takes zero shortcuts.

Not only do we now have a perfect lawn irrigation system but due to our ground being difficult to dig in they came back the next day to restoration and reseed which was not expected. You will not be disappointed by hiring this amazing team. We are beyond happy with our results and how quickly they got the job done.

Shoutout to Erik, Chris and the rest of the team that came out to install our system. We truly can’t thank you all enough and are very happy customers!

Quintin B.

Our primary reason for hiring Terrafirma was to fix a leaky basement wall. To do that they needed to remove part of our deck and patio, dig a deep trench, waterproof the wall, and install a sump pump. Then they needed to replace the deck and patio, which included some re-design. They did all this extremely well and we are very happy with the results.

We never looked into what any other company would charge, so we can’t say whether this was a “good value” or not, but we were and are certainly very happy with it. The entire project was set up and overseen by John McBride, who worked with us throughout.

Alan. D

We absolutely love this company great people to work with. They did a wonderful job and were very considerate, would definitely recommend them to anyone and everyone who is looking for professional irrigation. They completed the job in the course of 2 days mainly because of our ground and some patching that needed to be done because the ground was too hard. The exceeded our expectations and truly went above and beyond. You will not be disappointed with this company! Thank you Chris and Erik!

Brittany S.

Terrafirma is an outstanding landscape company with great landscape architects and the best crew! We have been happy with all the work they have done to make our yard beautiful.

Christine E.

Dave – I just wanted to send a quick note to thank you for not only calling me while on vacation but sending someone over THAT DAY to help with the sliding door last week! He was so nice (I wish I could remember his first name!) and figured it out right before he was about to leave. I think the door was out of whack because of the extreme cold we were having, but now I know what to do if it happens again! I had 5 girlfriends coming out to spend the night that night and I wasn’t sure how I was going to ask them to sleep downstairs when the door was open! Anyway, I hope you enjoyed your vacation and thanks again for bailing me out!

Sarah, Brooklyn

Eric and his team at Terrafirma helped us transform the walkway and landscaping in front of our new home. As first time homeowners, we appreciated Eric’s guidance and transparency about cost. The team worked efficiently and overall; the process went smoothly from start to finish. We look forward to working with them on future projects and would strongly recommend Terrafirma for your landscaping needs.

Erin E., Ann Arbor

Terrafirma did an incredible job on our patio. The crew worked fast, their workmanship was excellent. They responded to all of our questions and concerns efficiently and professionally. When a small oversight occurred, the company owner personally came to the site, came up with a solution (which may actually be an improvement of the original plan), had the crew come back the very next day to resolve the situation, and covered the costs. We interviewed several companies in the area and are so very grateful we went with Terrafirma!

Zuzana and Alec T., Ann Arbor

Thank you all so much for your amazing work in my yard! We just moved in a few months ago but with your vision and its functionality, we feel like we are at home. Everyone was so nice, so skilled and talented that the end results were truly awesome! Thank you so much.

Nancy H., Saline

Dear Eric, my wife and I want to thank you for the excellent work and great customer service. We are enjoying our patio with family and friends and wish you and your staff a happy and successful Summer and Fall.

Jon H., Ypsilanti

I am very pleased with the new driveway. The guys did a very good job and my neighbors and others that came over including the postman have complimented the workmanship. Please let Ken and the crew know this – a job well done!

Janice B., Ypsilanti

I am very satisfied by the work process and the finished product. Your supervision and the work of the Leija crew were standouts for me.

Ray R., Ann Arbor

Everything was great. I was impressed with the quality and cleanup. Thanks!

Asmat N., Ann Arbor

Ken, thanks so much!! Everything looks great. The grass is growing in nicely too. Your guys do very good work!!

Jennifer H., Superior Township

Thank you, Ken! We just wanted to say that we really appreciate you making this project happen. As I mentioned, we’d contacted many professionals over the course of this year, and no one else was able to point us in the right direction. So thanks, and have a great holiday!

Caitlyn H., Ann Arbor

We had a wonderful experience using TERRAFIRMA on a major landscaping project. Everyone from the sales rep, project manager, site manager to the labor workers were professional, respectful and talented. Our project turned out just like we imagined. We highly recommend using TERRAFIRMA. It was worth the cost. We will definitely use them again if we decide to have any more work done. Great job!

Dawn and Jim G., Onsted

I wanted to take a moment to share praise about one of your employees, Tim Sterling. Tim, and his crew, have been providing hort services at my home for several years now. He is one of the main reasons I choose TERRAFIRMA each year to help me maintain and improve my garden. One of the things I value very highly is Tim’s punctuality and reliability…  I wanted to take this opportunity to let you know how much I value his opinion/advice, and enjoy working with him and his team to beautify my yard and my home. I give him my highest recommendation.

Donna S.

“Mr. Patterson,
Wanted to write and express my appreciation to you, Denny, Michael and his crew for all your hard work. What a good experience for me.

Everyone answered all my questions and were so helpful. Such good PR. Will certainly recommend your company to anyone and everyone.
Thanks again!!

P.S. Evertyhing went so smooth and there were no surprises or problems. Everyone was on the same page. That’s rare. And your clerical staff – so kind.”

Sharon K., Ann Arbor

“I’d like to reach out to the team at Terrafirma to express what a great job you folks did with our landscape project this year. EVERY detail was addressed from modifying the design on the fly once work had started to offering new suggestions and ideas for the areas that are adjacent to the area being worked on. Dennie Peters & his crew did an amazing job and we are completely 150% satisfied with the work that was done! We look forward to having you folks out for stage three – the front of the house now next year!!”

Steve P., Grass Lake

“You guys did an amazing job. Thank you for creating a space that will give our family great pleasure for years to come. It means a lot to us.”

Chris & Kirsten P., Ann Arbor

“Thank you for reaching out with the kind gesture regarding the brick work on our porch. The check is enclosed and returned in that it was not necessary. The gesture alone was sufficient.

I am grateful for your ability to promptly deploy the tradesmen and their repairs were made well in advance of the party we held at our home.

Thank you again and enjoy your summer at the lake!”

George D., Ann Arbor

“They did it! The patio is in and it looks truly amazing. Every person who was here was so professional and worked so hard. We appreciate that you helped us get this in time for Alli’s party.”

Christy L., Saline

“Loren and I are very pleased with the professional job done by Dennie and his crew constructing our new walkway and completing the landscaping plan. We think it is the best job ever done for us by Terrafirma! It was great to be able to work with Dennie on site to make adjustments and changes as we proceeded. His insights and recommendations were invaluable as issues came up.

Mark has supervised crews for us on several occasions and is always polite, friendly, and keeps his guys working really hard, as does he. We are always glad to have him work on projects at our house.

We plan to replace the front porch and walkway in the next year or two and look forward to having you give us an estimate. Although you were not the lowest bid, we chose you because of your creativity in suggestions and design. We hope that Dennie is still working for Terrafirma at that time and supervises our project! “

Loren & Pam M., Brighton

“Want to send an “attaboy” for Mark and Rick who are unquestionably expert, diligent, skilled carpenters but more important, were very considerate of my property and my choices in the completion of the deck portion of my project. They worked around my needing access to the back yard and cleaned up after themselves daily so that I had a safe environment in which to take the dog. The finished deck portion of the project exceeds my expectations. They are indeed an asset to your organization and am hopeful that you are appropriately aware of same.”

Rosemary D., Ann Abor

“Have not had a chance to get back with you to say thanks and a great job on our landscaping. Everything looks great and the neighbors have all been by to say how nice it looks. Kudos to you and your crew for a job well done.”

Gary S., Saline

“Thanks for making my lake house even more of a peaceful and beautiful place to be.”

Mary C., Dayton, OH

“I wanted to let you know that I think that everything looks great and I hope to work with you and your team again very soon.”

Kelly K., Ann Arbor

“We are very pleased with the finished product. It turned out better than we had ever hoped for. Your workers did a great job from beginning to end. Please let Dave, Roberto and the rest of the staff and workers know that we appreciate!”

Bob & Sandy B., Brooklyn

“Thanks for the excellent work you did on our landscaping project. Your workers came when they said they would, did exactly what we agreed they would do, and cleaned up after themselves very well….and the price was reasonable! We are totally satisfied with Terrafirma.”

Bill W. and Kathy T., Ann Arbor

“Just wanted to drop a note of THANKS for the outstanding job your company did on our new bridge construction. What a pleasure it was dealing with you and your firm. Thanks also to Mark and Rick both super individuals and great ambassadors representing Terrafirma. I certainly won’t hesitate to recommend your services to others.”

Dave B., Ypsilanti

“I have contracted Terrafirma each year for the past eight years on various projects…….the drainage project was very difficult with my terrain, but the end result has been working perfectly ever since. The crews have always been very professional, efficient, and polite”

Barbara L., Augusta Township

“We have used Terrafirma for all types of landscaping services over the past 14 years, as well as for deck construction, home renovation, and basement finishing projects. The quality of their work has been outstanding, and all projects have been completed as requested and on time. We couldn’t be more pleased with Terrafirma and recommend them with highest enthusiasm.”

Eric F. and Kathy C., Ann Arbor

“Our backyard is our summer living space. Terrafirma has greatly improved that space by installing walks and gardens of great beauty. We are very happy with the additions provided by Terrafirma and their talented crews.”

Paul H., Ann Arbor

“Thanks to you Bill, and the Terrafirma crew for getting the backyard looking so nice after replacement of the sewer line out of my house. As always, great work, good people and it was as if your guys were never there.”
