"Come on Tom - how about a chest bump??"

“Come on Tom – how about a chest bump??”

We are over the top thrilled about the news that we have won the Merrimack Valley Magazine’s Reader’s Choice Award for the third year in a row.  Eddie is so proud he keeps following me around asking to do a chest bump.   This year we took home the bacon in the Hardscaping category, and we’re excited to highlight this part of our business.  We’re famous for our water features, but these days, customers come to us for fire pits and patios as well.

What makes this award so special is that we owe it all to our customers.  We wouldn’t be celebrating a third victory without their support.  It got us to thinking about why customers choose Dana Landscaping over so many other competitors and we came up with our top three:

Vision and enthusiasm. We love what we do.  And there is nothing we enjoy more than transforming a ho-hum yard into a beautiful and functional landscape. One thing that we consistently hear from our customers is that the final result is far and away MORE than they ever expected. We love coming up with designs that surprise and delight!  We also love being able to extend the time that families spend outdoors, with outdoor rooms and fire pits.

Quality workmanship. We’ve been in this business, serving the north shore of Massachusetts, for over fifty years – and that would not be possible if we were not completely dedicated to providing high-quality, lasting results.  Our ponds and waterfalls may appear to be perfectly natural – but they require a huge amount of expertise and experience. Our walkways, walls and steps stand the test of time.  Why take chances with less experienced providers?

Long term commitment to your satisfaction.  Our customers come back…again and again. In fact, a lot of our customers become friends.   Gardens are something that mature and change over time.  And your plan for your property will evolve over the years, so it’s important to establish a relationship with a landscaper who you can trust to be there.  And we plan on being around for another fifty years!

We take extreme pride in our work and treat your home (or business) like it was our own. A thing of beauty is a joy forever (when you work with Dana Landscaping).  Come on…give us a call!

By the way – here are a few more of the jobs we’ve been working on lately!

Memorial Day To Remember!

May 29, 2012

I’ve often thought that Memorial Day weekend was like the All-Star break for tired landscapers: a couple of days to rest in the middle of the busiest season of the year. But seriously, I really do love Memorial Day and I’m well aware of why we observe it. (I am tired though). This Memorial Day […]

April Showers Bring May Flowers. Then What?

May 17, 2012

Spring is an easy time to be a gardener in New England. The azaleas get the party started, the rhododendrons join in and before you know it your whole yard is a riot of color. It’s so loud, the neighbors are calling the police. And all you had to do was stand back and let […]
