Nice to work with, very customer oriented, timely, a get it done attitude with follow-up.
x

We built a new home, and therefor- dealt with a number of contractors for service. Tom ranked up there in the top 5 to deal with for a positive experience. Nice to work with, very customer oriented, timely, a get it done attitude with follow-up. Everything you would want. Also lent his knowledge to tweak some of the ideas we had- for the better based on his past experience. I would highly recommend Tom and his crew.

We couldn't be happier with the results and the compass is an added conversation piece!
x

Given the lateness of the season, we were very pleased with the prompt response we received from Tom on planning a small patio and landscaping/drainage project along our newly installed driveway.

Upon completion of the hydroseeding, the weather took a turn for the worse. Knowing there was a definite possibility of losing both the loam and seed, Tom came up with the idea of covering the hydroseed with filter cloth, which he personally delivered and loaned to us at no additional charge, thereby saving us what certainly would have been a complete washout.

We couldn't be happier with the results and the compass rose set into the permeable paver patio is an added conversation piece.

Tom and Martha were responsive & full of creative ideas that resulted in a space that looks like it fully belongs.
x

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our experience working with Tom and his amazing crew to complete a lakeside patio, walkway and fire pit in a tight time frame. Tom and his designer Martha were responsive and full of creative ideas that resulted in a space that looks like it fully belongs. The stacked stone fire pit and wall are stand outs! Landscapes by Tom executed their part as well as coordinating subcontractors efficiently so that our project was done beautifully and on time for a large party we'd planned and couldn't move. We highly recommend them.

x

Tom did an awesome job for us installing our perched beach a few years ago. Due to the harsh winters and lake ice, we had some issues with the granite steps going into the lake. We contacted Tom and he came out to take a look. He truly stands by his work. He sent a crew over to repair the steps within a few days.

We would definitely recommend Tom of "Landscapes by Tom". He is a great guy to do business with. Very professional, great employees, and quality workmanship.

We are grateful to Tom and his crew for a job well done at a reasonable price and would recommend them highly.

We recently contracted with Tom to have two granite porch/steps installed on the front of our house. We have dealt with many contractors over the years and this has been one of the best experiences we have had, from our initial meeting with Tom and a very reasonable estimate to the final clean-up after the work was done. Tom's crew, Paul, David and Evan were efficient, professional and personable throughout the installation. They installed literally tons of granite with great care to avoid any damage to our plantings, lawn and house - not an easy task. We are grateful to Tom and his crew for a job well done at a reasonable price and would recommend them highly.

x

We recently hired Tom and his firm to replace an old slate patio. Unlike other contractors we got estimates from Tom was straightforward to deal with, didn't try to sell us new material (vs. re-using the slate flagstones we had), and followed through with his promises. The crew that installed the patio were professional and considerate and clearly take pride in their workmanship; we couldn't be happier with the outcome. We wouldn't hesitate to use this company again, and highly recommend their services.

x

We recently completed Phase I of a landscape project on our lakefront property which was designed by Martha and Tom. Our desire was to maintain the feel of being in a woodland garden and use indigenous plants, Martha did an excellent job of accomplishing this.

David and Paul did an awesome job executing this plan with their hard work and skills. The finished project exceeded our expectations.

Tom gave us a fair price and was cooperative to our time schedule. He and his team were prompt and finished the project in a timely manner. All the materials arrived on the job site when they were supposed to and he obtained all required permits.

Tom and his team did a very credible and professional job.

We are looking forward to working with them to complete Phase II.

After this experience we would highly recommend Tom and his crew.

We recently hired Landscapes By Tom to build a stone patio, granite steps, stone walls and stone walkway. After this experience we would highly recommend Tom and his crew. Both Tom and Martha listened to our needs and came up with a plan that was all we wanted and more. Martha's plan transformed our uneven, disjoint waterfront space into a beautiful place to entertain. The plan worked well with existing features of the property and flowed perfectly. 

Brent and crew got a big project done quickly, and the stone walls are a work of art.

Overall, the results exceeded our expectations.

We intend to use Tom for any projects we may have in the future. We could not be more happy, and we highly recommend them.
x

My wife and I hired Landscapes by Tom to build granite steps down a ledge, and re-do our neglected yard by planting sod and perennials. He and his team, working with Don, did a phenomenal job. The design and build off the granite stairs were perfect, and, frankly, exceeded our expectations. Tom was always responsive to any questions that we had, the crew was always on time and pleasant, and Don and Tom kept us informed throughout the job. To top it off, they were very reasonably priced, and significantly less expensive than some of the bigger Lake Region landscapers/hardscapers who quoted the job. We intend to use Tom for any projects we may have in the future. We could not be more happy, and we highly recommend them.

We would recommend Landscapes by Tom without reservation! Tom and his crew are truly masters of their craft.

We would recommend Landscapes by Tom without reservation! Tom and his crew are truly masters of their craft.

We use the term craft deliberately because a craftsman by definition is highly skilled. That skill was evident throughout the project, from the initial meeting where they were able to help us articulate our vision, to the project's completion. Throughout the project it was apparent that they cared as much about the outcome as we did and we were continually impressed with their attention to detail. Rarely will you find this with contractors. It wasn't just another job to them; it was a matter of pride and they were not satisfied until the job was done right. We wish that everyone hired for jobs around our house were as professional and personable as Tom and his crew!

We couldn't be more pleased with the process, the workers and the final outcome.

My husband and I recently hired Landscapes by Tom to do a patio, fire pit, granite steps, retaining wall and garden. We couldn't be more pleased with the process, the workers and the final outcome.

Tom was friendly and professional. He was on the job several times daily. He coordinated every facet of the job and kept us constantly informed.

Martha (landscape designer) also friendly and professional, had creative ideas and suggestions and a great knowledge of designs and plants. She created exactly what we wanted, even though we didn't know what we wanted. Our praises to her.

Don (foreman) and his crew of worker bees were very skilled and worked diligently and nonstop in all kinds of weather from the beginning of the job to the end. They produced high-quality work and all were respectful and were truly a pleasure to have around.

A big hug and thank you to Tom, Martha, Don and crew. You really are the best!

Our landscaping, despite our love for planting and trimming, had grown old and tired.
x

We have owned our 2nd home in NH since 1981, when our family outgrew the saltwater boating that we had loved. Having grown up on NH summers, we turned to the Lakes region.

After purchasing a "fixer-upper", we have expanded it five times to meet our growing needs and now extended family. Our landscaping, despite our love for planting and trimming, had grown old and tired.

We decided on the idea of a limited re-landscaping, met with Tom and Martha of Landscapes by Tom, saw their plan and listened to their comprehensive presentation, complete with computerized visions of the changes, and quickly made up our minds to remove our limitations. They had listened to our thoughts, surveyed the land, and created an entirely new beautiful look.

With a focused and timely response, they have transformed our tired outdoors to a vibrant, interesting, and exciting setting for the home we refer to as "Hebron Heaven". We are captivated and thrilled with the early result, and look forward to enjoying our new surroundings for many years. Tom and Martha, Paul and David have given new life to our little piece of heaven. Thanks to them all.

You have helped create the curb appeal the property deserved.
x

Dear Martha and Tom,

Rachelle and I want to tell you how much we've enjoyed the total landscape project that the two of you and your staff have brought to our home. The design compliments the property perfectly and the plant selection has fulfilled our desires for a colorful setting for all seasons. 

As there was nothing here to begin with, we were able to start with a blank canvas for both the hardscape design and the design of the beds for plantings. 

Both have created the curb appeal that the property deserved.

The lawn portion of the project has also added to the overall design and in retrospect I'm glad I let Tom talk me into an irrigation system. As of today the lawn has been in for a month and I've already mowed three times. 

We've enjoyed the friendship that has ensued and look forward to a continuing relationship for the maintenance of a lovely setting.

Yours truly,

Fred and Rachelle Wolf

All our stone walls needed to be rebuilt and surrounding landscape refurbished.
x

We have a lakeside home with a large stone wall sitting in the lake holding up a beach, and two other large stone walls further back in the lakeside yard. All three walls were deteriorated to the point where they needed to be rebuilt, and the surrounding landscaping needed to be refurbished. Because, of course, the work was going to be in/adjacent to the lake, wetland permits were required. Landscapes by Tom did a magnificent job of creating a design plan for the job, securing the required permits without any issues being raised by the State, quoting a rate for the job that was reasonable and, most importantly, completing the job on time and on budget. And the quality and workmanship of the stone/masonry work is a beautiful thing to behold! We've had many, many positive comments made by our guests about the stonework and landscaping done for us by the crew at Landscapes by Tom. We highly recommend them to everyone.

We hunted for a landscaper who had a solid reputation & would stand behind their work.
x

We hunted around for landscapers to do pavestone for the main entrance and back walkways to a home we had just built, i.e., wanting to make sure we had someone with a solid reputation and who would stand behind their work. Landscapes by Tom fit both of those criteria. Its been two weeks since the project was finished and we continued to get compliments on the complete walkways. In all we wouldn't hesitate for a moment to recommend this company, i.e., quality work with absolutely no surprises. Again, hands down the best landscaping company we have used in the past 20+ years.

Alan & Marge Leppo - Lake Waukewan

We recently purchased a home on Lake Waukewan in Meridith for our retirement home.
x

We recently purchased a home on Lake Waukewan in Meridith for our retirement home. The outside of the home left a lot to be desired, as we spend a lot of time outside. I met with Tom and become comfortable with his knowledge of both hardscrape and landscape and the necessary permitting and most important how he carried himself. The scope of the project completely changed the outside area with decking, paver patio, walkway, granite steps, retaining walls, and over 150 plantings by Martha along with a very nice beach area.

All of the tradesmen who were working on the project were very skilled in their respective crafts. They were a pleasure to work with. The project came in on both time and budget.

We will be most comfortable having Tom on our team for all future projects.

A previous remodeling made a mess of our yard and we needed help!
x

Several years ago we remodeled our home in preparation for retirement. We did an addition and updating, and the equipment made a mess of our yard. Additionally, our 30+ year old steps to the lake were severely deteriorated.

We interviewed several landscapers for ideas and prices, and selected Landscapes by Tom. Tom and Martha were very thoughtful, listened to our ideas, and brainstormed alternative ideas so we could decide on a plan. They provided a way to do a "stagged" project so that the financial hit didn't occur in one year, but we decided to "just do it". So, we land scaped the street side of the house, and put in new steps and landscaping on the lake side of the house.

Their work crews were very friendly and diligent. They worked in the sun, the wind and the rain (a lot of the latter). Tom was present several times a day to supervise and the project went extremely well. We certainly touched bases at the beginning and end of each day. We liked all of the plantings instqlled except one set of 5 plants, and Tom made us very happy with a new selection.

Now, we use Tom for the spring clean up, and they make sure our landscaping is in good shape. They even coordinate with the sprinkler company so that when we return for the summer everything is beautiful and "in automatic". Our project was designed to be maintenance free after the cleanup, no lawn to mow, etc.

We were extremely pleased with the the design and work provided by Tom, and we continue to count Landscapes by Tom as a friend and as one of our best contractor experiences ever. We can't heap enough praise upon them!

Landscapes by Tom has been working with us at our NH property since 2005.

Landscapes by Tom has been working with us at our NH property since 2005.

  1. They first put in a bluestone patio and wall.
  2. They came up with a great design that fitted into the natural landscape in the area at more reasonable cost than the other company who quoted.

Our second large project was to landscape an area after construction, including a retaining wall, shrubs and planters.

And now each year they do a spring cleanup and mulch - we really appreciate getting to the lake and NOT having to do major yard work. And the planters are always planted with appropriate plants for our shady space so they look great from Memorial Day through fall.

Tom has also worked with us on our schedule - meeting us at the weekends when necessary - we are so glad we saw the ad in the newspaper and called Landscapes by Tom.

After the job was started, we knew we had made the right choice. Tom and his crew were fantastic.
x

We live in Massachusetts, and have a home in New Hampshire. Not being in New Hampshire all the time can be a challenge when you need work done.

After talking with  a few landscape companies, to have steps and a drive-way put in, we  decided to go with Landcscapes by Tom. Tom's friendly and professional manner is what made us decide to go with him. 

After the job was started, we knew we had made the right choice. Tom not only kept us informed by phone, but e-mailed us everyday to show us the progress. He and his crew were fantastic. He not only did what he said he would do but added a few extras to make the job look great!

Tom and his crew are the best and I would recommend him highly.

For twenty years we struggled with the "natural" state of the area that leads from our driveway.
x

We have a modest home on a small lot in Meredith. For twenty years we struggled with the "natural" state of the area that leads from our driveway, down a several foot drop slope, to our rear deck stairs. The groundcover consisted of treacherous rocks, sand and dirt....just plain ugly.

Martha and Tom worked with us on a plan to add topsoil that would even the slope and cover all of the protruding rocks. They also added a natural granite stepped path that now provides a pleasant entry to our rear deck, a rounded stone area for our fire pit, and seeded grass for that entire side which finishes the area nicely.

I was most impressed with Tom and Martha's willingness to work within our budget, and enjoyed the cooperation of their crew when they tackled our job. And, most importantly, they did not disappear after the work was done. They have been back at our home multiple times to nurse the grass cover and make sure that everything takes as promised. We would highly recommend Landscapes by Tom to anyone in our region.

Our 20+ year-old asphalt driveway was in serious need of attention and repair.
x

Our 20+ year-old asphalt driveway was in serious need of attention and repair. Being on a lakefront slope, we were interested in converting some or all of the surface into a water permeable system, which would mitigate the runoff into the lake. Tom Bryant carefully assessed our situation, offered several options for consideration, and was patient and helpful with our decision-making. He and his crew, led by Brian Chase, did a thoroughly professional job of designing, removing portions of the existing driveway, and installing beautiful permeable pavers which have resulted not only in the desired drainage functionality but also the conversion of a mundane driveway into an aesthetically pleasing surface which adds value to our home.  Above all, Tom is trustworthy, reliable, and stands behind his work.

Just recently we contacted Tom about a challenging project.
x

Just recently we contacted Tom about a challenging project. We have a beautiful waterfront lot but it slopes considerably from the house to the water which made it difficult to use and impossible for entertaining. We had a lot of dreams on what we wanted to do around our cottage. Tom and Martha met with us and listened to our ideas and then in a few short weeks made them a reality. The entire team is extremely client friendly, and their only interest is in making sure the client is happy.  They start with a solid plan and involve the client in all of the details throughout the process. We thoroughly enjoyed working with them. They are extremely talented and truly listen to the client and bring the clients vision to life. Last Friday when they had finished the job we walked through and could not believe our eyes, they had built a beautiful natural walkway that reminded us of a pathway in a magical forest. And the patio, and walkway connections that flow to and from it are a masterpiece.  We are so impressed, they delivered beyond our expectations. We couldn't be more pleased, this not only looks beautiful, but has added a significant value to our cottage.

I guess what we liked the most was their responsiveness - before, during and after project completion
x

Tom and Martha were amazing to deal with. They truly listened to what we wanted and did not try to force their ideas on us. We loved Martha's ability to show us on the PC our empty area to be landscaped with plants added in. The finished product is exactly what we expected and it is beautiful.

I guess what we liked the most was their responsiveness - before, during and after project completion. They both embody true customer service ethics!
