Testimonials

  • “It was an enjoyable experience to have John Riedel and Riedel Precision Landscaping design a more pleasing entrance to my home and to create a handsome new driveway, as well as to address a long standing drainage issue in my garden, and to build a new fence. John was amazingly creative, his suggestions were practical and wide-ranging to accommodate my budget. His crew was professional, and their workmanship was outstanding. John was generous with his time, taking me to visit his ongoing projects, as well as visits to suppliers to make choices on materials. I have recommended Riedel Precision Landscaping to friends. The many compliments I have received from neighbors and friends only confirms my opinion.”

  • "I received a number of decent landscaping proposals after we rebuilt our home 2 years ago and all were from trusted referrals. After meeting with each provider, my wife and I both agreed John Riedel simply seemed to get what we were trying to achieve and was the most honest in terms of pointing out where our landscape architect's plans were not practical and could be improved. We chose John and are so pleased with our new landscaping. And after two years, it looks even better than when first installed which is what we wanted as well. Post-job service was terrific as well as John came back and re-planted a few plants that didn't properly mature. Overall, hands down John and his very professional crew did an outstanding job, were on time, and on budget. What more can you ask for?"

  • "After countless "flakey" landscaping companies either not showing or just not having a clue, I met John Riedel. I got John's bid that was a little on the higher end but the confidence I had in him made the choice easy. I had a budget that I NEEDED to stay with and an idea of what I wanted. John was able to do that without cutting corners. He did concrete, rock work, put in a fountain, a built in BBQ, an amazing fire pit as well as a small vineyard. His crew started working and came every day till it was finished. Do yourself a favor if you're getting a landscape job done...hire Precision Landscaping."

  • "My wife and I interviewed many landscape contractors over a 3 month period and are so pleased we selected Riedel Precision Landscaping (John Riedel). John and his team are true professionals and skilled in all levels of grading and drainage, irrigation, plant selection, masonry, hardscape, lighting, and arbor construction. In our backyard John and his team built a custom outdoor kitchen with stone inlay, bbq, refrigerator, hillside arbor, stone retaining walls, courtyard garden, hillside garden, lawn area, flagstone patio and flagstone steps, stamped concrete, vineyard prep, sport court area, raised play structure pad area, and extensive grading, irrigation and drainage given we have a large hillside. John is easy to work with, attentive, meticulous, and diligent and most of all very patient especially for families who have not taken on a backyard remodel, which can be daunting in some respects with so many decisions to make.

    He has a great team of workers who are also well skilled, courteous and professional. Importantly, we found John's pricing was competitive; he built our project on budget and was able to meet the aggressive project schedule so we could enjoy our yard with family and friends before the Labor Day weekend. We are so pleased with John's performance that we intend to hire him for a smaller front yard remodel next year. I recommend John Riedel, his depth of knowledge; quality, attention to detail and workmanship are truly first class and evident in every aspect of the construction process."
