Listen to what our raving customers have to say about working with Bret-Mar Landscaping!

“I know a guy…”
How many times have you asked for a recommendation and gotten this as a response? When it comes to landscaping work for your home, friends and family that you ask will probably be able to offer you the name of either an individual or a service.
A call to Bret-Mar is one of the best things you can for your home and for yourself. The entire team is knowledgeable, easily accessible, open to listening to your thoughts and wishes.
I have used Bret-Mar exclusively over the last 25 years. They have never disappointed me. I have had them work in both my front and back yard, designing and planting flowers, shrubs, and trees. They have put in a brick paver walkway outside the front of the house, and worked very hard and creatively to make my dream of having a waterfall and pond in my backyard become a reality. My backyard is my sanctuary and Sharon and Ashley need to take a lot of credit for this.
I cannot say enough about this family and all of the wonderful, hard-working people that on staff at Bret-Mar and help to make homes beautiful!

We have worked with Bret-Mar landscape for several of the projects in our yard and their work is top-notch. The entire team and crew at Bret-Mar goes above and beyond in their attention to detail, professionalism, communication & care throughout the project, as well as ensuring the scope (and price) of the project is honored and maintained throughout. Our yard has become a feature of our property and we are so grateful that Bret-Mar brought our vision to life.

Bret Mar Landscaping re-designed my entire backyard. I worked with their landscape designer Bailey and together (mostly with her input) we designed a beautiful stone patio with walkways, winding secret pathways of flagstone around the house, a beautiful fire pits, and all with creative and lovely landscaping, giving our yard privacy, peacefulness and beauty. We were also dealing with some serious drainage issues that we originally had expected to pay through the nose to fix, but at every turn Bret Mar has saved us money. The quote for the patio came under the proposal price (by over $2000) as well as our expected drainage price tag being lower. They are able to do all of this because they have experienced people running a professional business. The designer and owners are involved, and on the site making sure the job is being done the right way. At every turn I was being consulted to make sure it was being done to my satisfaction. I have dealt with landscaping companies in the past and have always come away frustrated and disappointed. Thank you Bret Mar for a wonderful experience. I will be calling soon to freshen the front yard.

Bret-Mar just completed landscaping for our home. This is the second home they have done for us. They have the best, most hard working employees. Sharon did our design which we are very happy with. The employees who came out to do the job were very accommodating, very knowledgeable, and answered my many questions. They even encourage you to contact them with any questions that may come up in the future. I would definitely recommend them!

We had Bret-Mar design and plant our Landscaping in May of this year. We are absolutely thrilled with the beauty and natural look of the Landscaping.
We met with Sharon in January 2019 and decided what we would like. Sharon was very knowledgeable, professional and responsive. She suggested a wide range of plantings and trees and she came to our home to review the plans. The staff and workers were friendly, courteous, and experienced. Many of her workers have been employees for many years. Bret-Mar has a Maintenance program with many options which we plan to take advantage of this year. We highly recommend Bret-Mar for all your Landscaping needs.

We have been customers of Bret-Mar Landscaping for about 8 years now. They are a great family own and run business. We have had them build a retaining wall for our driveway, landscape the front of our house, and complete Spring Clean up for both our landscaping and my backyard herb garden including weeding, mulch, and fertilizing. They have been extremely responsive to our needs and creative with their solutions to our landscaping challenges.

I’ve been a customer of Bret-Mar Landscaping for the past 3 years and appreciate their attention to detail in all the work they do. I’ve worked with other landscapers in the past and have always had a punch list of things that weren’t done right that required them to come back out to correct them. This isn’t the case with Bret-Mar. Ashley is a pleasure to work with. We meet early in the Spring and discuss the plan for the year and have regular touch points before the crew arrives on site. I highly recommend the landscape maintenance program. It allows me to spend more time with my family by taking care of the routine landscape choirs that are done throughout the year that would have taken me several weekends to complete. It also allows me to focus on the gardening that I really enjoy doing. Thanks Ashley and the Bret-Mar team!

We have used Bret-Mar Landscaping at our house in Homer Glen since moving to the area a few years ago. They do outstanding work and are incredibly helpful in walking through all the various landscaping options for areas on our property. Ashley has gone above and beyond in making sure things are done well and coordinating the work at our house. Highly recommended!

We have been using Bret-mar Landscaping for the past ten years. At first it was for landscape design and then for spring and fall clean up. We are now using them for year round maintenance and we couldn’t be happier with their service and attention to detail. In the past we used different services and they fell short in one way or another. Not so with Bret-Mar. The entire team from the owners to the crew pay attention to the needs of your property as if it were their own. We couldn’t be happier.

I’ve never done a landscaping project before. We’ve been in our house over 5 years and never much cared for the original landscaping and it was time for a complete overhaul. I could not be more happy with the team at Bret Mar – especially Bailey & Ashley – who helped me figure out exactly what I wanted, and then their amazing team who did the job perfectly. And it came in UNDER BUDGET!!
