Ray and his crew redid our patio last summer and were wonderful! From the design ideas, the thoroughness, the punctuality, and the attention to detail I was very impressed! He helped us to recreate our backyard into a beautiful space and even helped us to save money on pavers by reusing our existing and they still look like new! They showed up to work everyday and were there until the job was complete. They were very friendly and cleaned up after themselves. Ray's price was very competitive and I really like that he was onsite working for the entire project. I would recommend Ray to anyone and would definitely use him again!

To anyone looking for a professional landscaper:
This letter is to endorse and highly recommend Spring Berry Landscaping for their quality work and quality customer service! Ray Spring, owner/operator, has been contracting with Stratford Ecological Center for over 5 years for our mowing, trimming and special projects and has done consistently outstanding work!
Spring Berry Landscaping also watches out for the customer’s pocketbook. For example, he only mows when needed and does not take advantage of the customer during dry weather when the grass has not grown enough to merit mowing (unlike some other companies). And he doesn’t try to push any lawn or garden products onto you either – he only does or applies what you ask him to!
Ray and his crew, Jim Westbrook, also show great sensitivity towards the environment they are hired to take care of – they are keenly aware of the health of your turf, landscaping plants and trees as well. We have over 5,000 children visiting the Stratford Ecological Center annually, and it is comforting to know that our young visitors have a healthy and durable environment to visit and play in.
Moreover, Ray being a certified arborist often offers unsolicited advice to the health and trimming needs of the trees that exist in our property’s landscape.
Spring Berry’s patio designs and construction are among the best we have ever seen – and the work is done professionally in a timely manner. After completing our 60 X 20 foot patio with pavers and edging, we have received many compliments on its beauty from our visitors, including other professional landscapers. It is now one of the most widely used spaces on Stratford’s property – rain or shine! Spring Berry Landscaping is also very proficient in masonry stone work and laying up stone walls or embankment reinforcements.
If you need a more personal professional reference, I would be happy to talk to you myself about the quality work and service you can expect. You just can’t go wrong in choosing Spring Berry Landscaping for your home or business landscaping needs!
Executive Director and Farmer, Stratford Ecological Center
Ray, Cheryl and I want to thank you again for the job that you and your team did for us. The paver project turned out better than expected and I am sure we will have many days of enjoyment thanks to you. We appreciate the fact that you stayed within budget and schedule. I will certainly recommend you to my friends that are looking to do landscaping projects in the future.
Thanks again, Dave Taylor
Enclosed is our payment for another job well done. Gail and I have always been pleased with the paver steps and walk you installed for us at least 12 years ago, and your recent work makes it look like new. It is a pleasure having you at home and in our Village. Like us, everyone has been delighted with your workmanship and timeliness. You are a true craftsman and complete your jobs just as you say you will and at a reasonable price, too.
And thanks for restoring the memorial plaza in Falco Park for the Village. All who have seen it think it looks super. You've given it a "new Life" that will be enjoyed by many for years to come.
Never hesitate to list Gail and me as a reference. And we will never hesitate to refer people to you for landscape work. You are a pleasure to work with.
With gratitude, Bill Johannes
Ray Spring and his crew installed steps and a dry creek effect in our back yard. First let me say, it is absolutely beautiful! Ray did a great job of picking out natural materials to match the environmental setting. He has a natural talent for this. He has over twenty-five years of experience in his field of expertise and is very knowledgeable, as he also answered questions as to what kinds of mulch, plants, etc. that he would use to help us complete the scape. Ray and his crew were actually a pleasure to have at our home; they were friendly to us and all of our visitors. We are going to miss having them around. As far as getting deadlines, Ray did exactly what he told us he was going to do. He was right on budget. We strongly recommend Ray of all of your landscape needs.

Impressive - that is how we describe the professional work ethic and results that were created after Springberry Landscaping completed the hardscaping in our front and backyard. Ray exhibited creativity during our consultation which developed into a raised patio and walkway design unique for our setting. He was very open and observant to our ideas as well as what styles we likes. Always on time, he and the crew worked hard and smart using his extensive engineering landscaping skills to maneuver tons of barn stone and pavers without the use of heavy equipment. This meant no damage was done to our turf, as we were anticipating would occur. Each day the site was cleaned, prepped and ready for the next day. Communication was always pleasant, Ray updated us on how the job was progressing and plans for the following day.
The project was done to improve and make our home a more inviting place. Springberry Landscaping successfully completed our vision and just as importantly, we had fun.
