We have had numerous large and small home construction projects over the past 7 years.Our experience with DCR was by far the best of them all. As you know, I am quite particular when it comes to contractors working on my home. I have found that all of them make big promises and even the better ones have a hard time living up to all of their promises. You are the exception. I was impressed from the beginning with the considerable amount of time you spent with us explaining your capabilities and approach. Then,the design process was flawless. Your preparation just prior to the actual landscaping and construction demonstrated just how organized and conscientious you are. Once the work began, I always felt comfortable knowing that your watchful eye was overseeing the project and I really appreciated the fact that you were always available...day or night. Above all I value the fact that you approached every aspect of the job as if you were working on your own home. I remember the time you ripped out the footing for the back step because you felt it would look better shifted by one inch. And I will never forget the time I called you with a concern and, without telling me, you immediately drove your car 30 minutes to my house - with your family in the car - and shined your headlights on the patio because you couldn't rest until you saw it for yourself.
You, Angelina, Ashley and everyone at DCR are supreme professionals.
Your work is of the highest quality. I am so confident that what you have built is done properly and it is clearly done beautifully. We are all waiting for summer to come so we can enjoy what you have created for us.
I wish I owned more backyards on which you could build patios, lawns for you to landscape and driveways for you to pave. I am glad we will have you maintaining our lawn with the same care and commitment that went into the project last summer. To anyone who is interested in working with DCR, I could not recommend you guys highly enough.
We had just moved into our new house and found two underground oil tanks which had to be dug out and removed. This caused a lot of damage to the landscaping, sprinkler systems, bluestone walkway, lawn and to the shrubs/plants. We used this opportunity to redo the entire landscaping in front of our house and in the back yard. We met with several landscapers, evaluated their proposals and finally selected DCR.
Doug and his team were fantastic in working with our budgets to come up with creative plans and reasonable pricing. On the execution front, we had a lot of scheduling issues due to weather but when DCR was able to start work, they worked at a fantastic pace and got the whole project done in a day. Besides the quality of the work, Doug and his team are a pleasure to talk with and work with. I would definitely recommend DCR without any reservations.
DCR Landscaping has done an excellent job on the landscaping of our home. Their assignment included all plantings, exterior lighting, the driveway, patios, walkways, fencing and gates, an outdoor kitchen, and our kids' playground.
We first met with Doug during the construction of our house. We conveyed to him the overall look and design we were striving to achieve. Doug immediately understood our vision, and I can honestly say he and his team far surpassed our expectations.
DCR's workmanship and professionalism are top notch. Before any work began, we received detailed plans and an itemized list of all plants, materials, labor, etc. with prices and a timeline. Doug was completely receptive to any input we had and willingly worked through several design revisions until we were completely satisfied. Doug even worked directly with our decorator, meeting with her in person and on the telephone several times. Doug answered each and every question we had -- from how to set a timer to what maintenance is needed for a stone to what granite is best to achieve the look we wanted for our outdoor kitchen.
Doug and his team have been a pleasure to work with. They are honest, professional, highly competent, and all work was completed on schedule. I would be happy to work with DCR for any future projects we have for our home, as I trust they will do the best quality work in a timely fashion at a fair price.
After visiting a few ongoing jobs of DCRs and comparing to other local competitors, it became clear to us the difference in quality craftsmanship and design capability DCR has to offer. Once the details of our design plan were finalized, DCR accomplished in less than a week what others would take much longer to finish. With Nery Chacon supervising, the work quickly came to life and our new dream patio, accompanied by a great landscaping design, was born. The DCR team worked as diligently as possible to maintain a clean/clear worksite and even power-washed the areas of the house and patio involving the work!
As a consumer whom takes extreme care in ensuring the amount of money spent on a project like this results in a perfect outcome, DCR acknowledged that and did their best to meet our every expectation of perfection! We appreciate all the diligent hard work that DCR put into our job, and we would not hesitate to recommend them to others.
Your company recently did a large landscape project at our home in Brick.I want to send our sincerest thank you for an excellent job. From the beginning of the project your employees were respectful, courteous and professional. Your company was recommended to us by a friend and I was given your number. From our first conversation, you went out of your way to meet our needs from scheduling meeting with us at our convenience, to designing the entire project. During our first consultation we discussed what we were looking for as far as the design and although you had many suggestions, you still listened to all of our requests. When DCR came to our home with the plans for our front yard I was so excited. The plans were so much more beautiful than we had expected.
The backyard was a totally different project from the front of the property, but again DCR listened to our ideas and developed beautiful plans. The only changes that we made were to our water feature. We supplied DCR with a picture of what we liked and picked out a few different perennials which I thought were pretty but we allowed DCR to create and design it. We went ahead and scheduled the project to begin. Every day, coming home from work was exciting for me. It was amazing to observe the transformation from day to day. The entire project took between eight and ten days and I cannot even begin to explain my happiness. The interlocking paver brick patio is absolutely beautiful. On the last day I had found two bricks that were loose and questioned if the sod would sturdy them up. Those two bricks were immediately replaced without any hesitation. The entire crew that worked on my property needs to be acknowledged.
The most exciting day for me was the day that the fish pond was completed. You cannot imagine the awe on my face when I saw what DCR had designed. It is the most gorgeous fish pond that went well beyond my expectations. We have had the entire neighborhood complement us on our landscaping, and most of them only saw the front yard. We have done many projects on our current home and our past properties and DCR is by far the best there is!
