My experience with Local Roots was great from the first design consultation through the completion of my backyard retreat. I had a small backyard that was challenged by a steep hill. The team was able to install a beautiful, two tiered retaining wall that provided enough space for a dream patio and all-season plunge pool. Thanks for making the unbelievable come true for me!
- Ken Kmetz
Kenneth and his crew went above and beyond to satisfy the requests we had for our backyard hardscape. Professional from beginning to end! Greg and his team did masterful paving work - clean lines, improved the grades and left our place looking great! We will enjoy our yard for years to come.... These guys are top notch and I will hire them again!
- Mark Yocca
Local Roots did an excellent job on our back patio renovation. They stepped up when our prior general contractor fell through and left the project in disarray. They were able to complete all the remaining work, and work with subcontractors as needed. The end result looks awesome and we would definitely recommend them to our friends.
- Brian Pollack
I was extremely satisfied with the two landscape jobs completed by Local Roots for my city property in Lawrenceville. Ken did a fabulous job with the design and was very responsive to my ideas and questions regarding plant choices. The projects involved removal of old hardscape as well as very old, overgrown plantings. The workers were extremely professional and completed the work in a timely fashion. Wouldn't hesitate to use Local Roots services again!
- Michele Evans
Local Roots is extremely professional and has great quality. All of their crews are friendly and helpful and clearly take pride in their work.
- David Riehl
Local Roots is absolutely incredible! I would trust them with any and all landscaping and hardscaping projects! This may sound cheesy, but it is absolutely accurate to say that Local Roots will make your dreams come true! Their work is professional, custom, and of high quality. They will give you exactly what you want AND make suggestions to even improve upon on your ideas. Most of all, they are TRUSTWORTHY and of high character, which is hard to find these days. Highly recommend this five-star company.
- Catherine Agate

- Nina Andaloro
Pictures say it all! Could not be happier with the outcome. Never thought I would be proud of the front of my house with how it looked before but now I love showing it off! Fantastic company and employees! Highly recommend.
- Dan Wisniewski
Local Roots has changed the way our house looks and feels by elevating our landscaping to the max! The crew is super friendly and professional and they really went the extra mile on cleaning things up. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for some help on landscaping design and execution. 10/10 experience.
- Kendall Hannan
Local Roots has very knowledgeable staff that complete the job well. They have been very punctual, communicate well before and after any job, and always leave a site looking at it's best. I have had many jobs completed by landscape companies that send people out to complete a job without any plant knowledge, and believe me its shows - Local Roots has trained staff that excel in their work and make sound and smart decisions when completing any job. Highly recommend!! The owners are really nice, smart and motivated guys as well - definitely give them a call for any landscape work you need!

How We Work to Ensure Your Satisfaction
With years of experience behind us, we've streamlined our process to make every landscaping project simple and enjoyable for you. Here's what you can expect when you work with us on a design-build project:
Lay the Groundwork
Book your consultation through our online scheduling system directly with our designers at a time that works for you. The designer will determine whether you need a design (and can proceed to the next steps) or if we can skip that phase and put your project on the schedule right away.
Fill out the questionnaire at least 48 hours prior to your scheduled site visit. This gives the designer more information about what you're looking for and will help you and the team make the most of the on-site visit.
Create Your Plan
Your designer will arrive on time and will take a few photos and measurements, and discuss your vision for the space (Design packages are $85 per hour/$3,000 project minimum). Within 48 hours of the visit, your designer will be in touch with the design cost and to schedule a date for the project presentation where they will present a high-level plan for your project. You'll also receive a rough estimate for both the cost and the timeline of the project. When you're ready to move forward, you'll sign the agreement, pay your deposit, and be added to our schedule.
You’ll receive all the details of your design concept along with a complete project budget and timeline.
You'll enjoy one point of contact with a dedicated project manager and crew throughout your project. They will work safely and efficiently from 8:00-5:00 on business days, keeping you up-to-date on their progress, and any time that you have questions or concerns.
When your project is complete, your project manager will do a final walk-through with you and make sure all items in the punch list are documented and that we follow-through on completion of the items. At this point we will invoice you for the remaining balance and if you’re willing, request that you submit a review through our website.
