One of our clients in Montclair, NJ was looking to upgrade her landscape while adding privacy. We began with a plan to implement landscape privacy screening, add new plants, lay sod and install irrigation but there were several challenges regarding space and access. We knew from the beginning that our close quarters and working around items, equipment and other team members in the yard was going to make this project a challenge. Working in tight spaces and having restricted access to certain parts of the property can sometimes prevent landscape projects from being completed the way they were intended or extend the project completion time.
To give the homeowner exactly what she had envisioned, which is always our #1 goal, we knew we would have to remove several large trees along the edge the homeowner’s property. This was a challenge due to the very limited access to these large trees and the tight space also made it difficult for us to easily maneuver our heavy equipment around the yard.
Another complication that our confined space dilemma inflicted on us was when the plantings for the landscape design aspect of the project arrived and we became even more tight on space impacting our access to even more areas of the property. Regardless of these obstacles, we were fully determined to make sure the homeowner was going to get everything she dreamed of.
Our team emphasizes the importance of planning ahead and communicating; many obstacles can be conquered when a team utilized these two key skill sets. Through careful organization, communication and strategic planning, we were able to remove any unwanted trees. We were also able to maneuver around the property with no issues or complications.
During the landscape portion of the project, we were able to propose a design strategy that would improve our client’s Montclair, NJ property even more. The added design plan included replacing the walkway on the side of her home with a new bluestone walkway. When then connected the new walkway to her rear patio for convenience, symmetry and design purposes. This added hardscape installation service seamlessly tied everything in leaving the homeowner exceptionally thrilled with her new landscape layout. All tasks from installing privacy screening to adding new plants, fresh sod and irrigation were successfully completed and added to the property.
The total project completion time was 4 weeks and resulted in a clean, finished landscape that provided our Montclair, NJ homeowner with the privacy and beautiful landscape transformation she had envisioned. In any project, we go the extra mile to prevent obstacles from delaying the project so that our clients can enjoy their new backyard as soon as possible.
Green Meadows and Scott, the Director of Landscape Construction, are a first class company. Their work, craftsmanship, and follow up is outstanding. They not only do great work, but back it up with actions too. Scott is a true professional and a gentlemen, with high character and work ethic! He created and oversaw the master plan that included over 200 plantings, a new paver walkway, patio, and a custom deck, in addition to new driveway pillars made out of stone. The crew was neat, we'll mannered and incredibly accommodating. I have used them numerous times and will do so.again. I highly recommend them.
Green Meadows Landscape installed 1900 sf patio around a newly installed free form pool with plantings and lighting. They did a fabulous job. They were very professional and worked very hard to keep me happy. I interviewed over 15 landscapers and never felt comfortable with them until I met Green Meadows. I strongly recommend Green Meadows Landscape to anybody who wants the job done right.
Scott and his team were great. They were the best of three potential companies on price to start. Scott did not push other services. They were prompt, professional and the result was terrific. We had a new retaining wall installed, grading, seeding and mulching done. We have since used them twice more for some garden design & installation and more mulching.

We were very impressed with the quality of the work provided by your company. We highly recommend Green Meadows Landscaping, Inc. to anyone looking to do a large or small landscaping job.
I hired Green Meadows to take care of my residential landscape design for my home in Wyckoff NJ. The staff were really friendly and the landscape design they presented me with was great. They really knew how to maximize the existing space and features of my yard. They always do a great job maintaining my yard and my home looks beautiful. I would never have been able to do it on my own!
The on-site staff was respectful and professional. Rich periodically stopped by to insure that his level of standards and quality were adhered to. Green Meadows provide an on-time job with the highest quality and professionalism that I ever experienced. Job well done, and highly recommended.
