What Are Clients Are Saying...

I had some vague, fuzzy ideas about how to improve things around my house and our hilly terrain.  Sally and Marcus listened and developed a plan to solve the existing problems while enhancing the usefulness and beauty of the land – and did I mention the addition of a farmer’s porch to enjoy the sunset?!  From start to finish the team was creative, collaborative and professional.  And they used their artistry and skills to create lovely outdoor spaces well beyond my expectations.  It has been a pleasure to work with Sally, Marcus, Alex and the team and I look forward to working with Ream Design in the future.

“My yard was a mess.  It had not been maintained in years, and I had just finished a major house renovation.  I needed a new yard, and Ream Design was the company to tackle the project. They met with me and listened to what I wanted, they created a landscape drawing of my new yard, and reviewed it with me easily making modifications as requested. The implementation began in the fall by trimming back the large trees, removing the over growth, but keeping the good bushes and plants that could be transplanted. In the Spring, they brought in the new trees, bushes, and plants and in three days had the yard looking amazing.  Marcus, Alex, and Sally were a pleasure to work with and know how to manage a project of this magnitude. I love my new yard and have enjoyed watching it change as the seasons change.  Thank you Ream Design!!!”

“Ream Design did an amazing job on landscaping our yard for a new play set and shed. Marcus and Alexander make a good team and have a great eye for design while also managing the landscape details. They are very organized and careful in their work (which is sometimes hard to find in the landscape business). We are looking forward to using them again for our next landscape project!”

Artemis Blair, Acton, MA

“We hired Ream Design in the summer of 2012 to prepare a landscape design for the front yard of our Dunstable home. We met with Marcus and Alex Rodriguez during this process and they were both very helpful, skilled and thoroughly professional.  A landscape schematic was presented that included color photos of the chosen hardscape and plant materials, giving us the tools to make final decisions for the project.  We then had to break down the project into smaller phases to be completed over two years for financial reasons, but Marcus and Ream were flexible in this regard which we greatly appreciated.  Our first two phases of the project have been completed thus far and we are extremely happy with the result.  We are looking forward to Phase 3 in the spring of 2014.”

Jackie & Jim Frey Dunstable, MA

“After having done all of our own landscaping and gardening for years we came to a point where we were seriously changing the layout of a piece of our land to increase our garden space and needed some professional help.  From the start the team at Ream listened to our needs, albeit somewhat unconventional, and worked with them.  As a gardener it was difficult for me to put trust in another person to work with the area around our house.  I’m so glad that I finally did with Sally, Marcus, and Alex.  Everyone did a wonderful job of making sure we were involved in every step of the process and happy with all the results.  They worked around all of our existing landscaping with the least impact possible and we were left with a beautiful area that we could finish with the skills that we have.  It was truly a wonderful team project.  I would recommend Ream to any gardener wanting help on a big project.”

Valerie Townsend, MA

“Our last house renovation project included the addition of a patio and plantings to provide a relaxing outdoor area.  We saved the best for last!  Ream Design came to the rescue by creating a vision for our space that complemented the country surroundings of orchards, rock walls and a vintage New England house.  The vision became reality when Alex and Marcus arrived.  Their personal installation and supervision of the project was a delightful experience.  Both delivered professional expertise to the client and the project.  The subcontractors were equally skilled and efficient.  Every step in the patio and landscaping installation was well executed and completed in a timely manner.  We thoroughly enjoyed the attention and knowledge Sally, Marcus, and Alex gave us.  We highly recommend the “Ream Team” to anyone in need of a design vision and execution to enhance their home.”

Karla & Marty Hollis, NH

“I hired Ream Design to help re-design my garden and have been delighted with the results.  Sally and her team listened to what I needed, came up with lots of creative ideas, and worked within my budget.  The installation was done quickly and efficiently.  The staff of this company are knowledgeable and professional.  I will definitely use them again for future projects.”

Jill Hooley Acton, MA

My wife and I had the pleasure of working with Ream design on two projects.  Having been home owners for twenty years, during which time we’ve built two homes and re-modeled a third, we’ve worked with all kinds of contractors.  Ream Design is professional, courteous, hands-on, full-service, on time and completes the job as if they were working on their own home.  I would recommend them without caveats and my wife and I will work with them in the future.”

Blaine & Eden Alvarez-Backus Lancaster, MA

“Sally is very creative, has a passion for plants, and is great to work with from start to finish, as is her firm, Ream Design.  Most recently, I enlisted Sally’s expertise to design and install interior plant-scapes for two high profile events–a swanky fundraiser for 200 and a gala film premiere for 500. I couldn’t have been happier–the results were outstanding!”

Sue Edwards Extra Mile Design, Boston, MA

“As the owner of a property management company, I have worked with over 20 different landscaping companies over the years at our properties. When it came time to hire a company to design a landscape plan for my recently build house, there was only one company that I trusted. That company is Ream Design. Sally and Marcus came out to my house for an initial visit and they took all the measurements and photographs of my house for their plans. We then sat down for an hour to discuss both of our ideas and discuss topics like plant colors, locations and maintenance. They returned to my house a few weeks later with color drawings of plans for the entire exterior which included photos of all of the plantings. We spent a few hours going over the plans and answering all of my questions. I would recommend Ream Design for any residential or commercial customers who are seeking a professional landscape design plan done.”

“Thanks for the terrific job – we can be proud of our yard again!”

Jan Rogers Dunstable, MA

“We never had a good-looking yard, and after completing a home renovation project we were left with a yard that was in need of a great deal of work. We trusted Ream Design to this blank canvas and the result is a masterpiece – we are so tremendously pleased with the result. The design was professional, patient and collaborative, and the landscape and hardscape construction was both quick and thorough. We are so impressed with Ream Design’s expertise and friendly manner that we continue to have them maintain what we have. Anybody looking for great landscape design, professional construction, and reliable maintenance will love working with Ream Design.”

Doug & Terri Miller Pepperell, MA

“I wanted to thank you for the tremendous landscaping and design that was done at my location. I get compliments on a daily basis with how beautiful everything looks. Your company was extremely professional, courteous, and highly skilled in all aspects of the job, from beginning planning stages to the final watering. Your employees were especially impressive. I was concerned with the massive scope of the job with multiple brick walkways and staying open during this time, but your men worked around my patients and my schedule. Even while working everything was neat and total consideration was given to my place of business. They were extremely conscientious and truly exceeded my expectations in not only workmanship and attention to detail, but overall professionalism. Overall I found this experience to be very positive. I would highly recommend you to anyone looking for landscaping services. I look forward to working with you again.”

Dr. Michael O’Neil Nashoba Vision Associates, Groton, MA

“Sally’s crew has been taking care of the grounds for the condo assoc. where I live. This is the first time all owners have been happy with the quality of the work. As most people know, pleasing everyone is not easy.”

Elisabeth Holwech Century 21 Nashoba, Pepperell, MA

“You did some work for us about 2-3 years ago and I just wanted to let you know the yard looks GREAT!! All the shrubs have grown along with a large hemlock that the crew transplanted. We did have to add some mulch on top of the existing pine bark that was originally put down. So now the yard looks even better. Thanks again for a job well done.”

Terry Walsh Townsend, MA

“The Ream Design team was outstanding in all aspects of the project. They took the time to understand our tastes and needs, and created detailed site plans They listened to our feedback and worked to create plans that we felt comfortable with, guiding us along the way in a constructive manner. We we signed the dotted line they brought in a large crew with the necessary tools. The plants they furnished were top notch. They took care to plant carefully, clean up every day, and to not damage any of the surroundings. If there was a problem they took case of it. No problem was too small. They then guided us during the critical first year when the landscape developed. They took obvious pride in their work and we ended up with a top notch landscape that gets better every year. We were completely satisfied with their work.”

Tony Dicenzo Pepperell, MA

“Ream Design has been providing landscaping service to me for two years. They are efficient, knowledgeable and we have achieved great results with their landscape services.”

Leslie Costigan Tyngsboro, MA

“When we bought our house in 1996 our landscape included dead and dying trees, very basic builder foundation plantings, a lawn full of grubs and a forest that stopped 10 ft. from the back of the house.  Since that time, our yard has evolved into a beautiful, colorful, private and peaceful oasis that has provided us with hours of enjoyment.  As we worked with Ream design, a vision emerged that made the best use of shade, light, and the contours of our property as well as using the many large rocks and stone that already existed.  Designs went from paper to actual installation flawlessly.  In addition, they were always willing to discuss changes to initial designs, move large plantings to new locations, and replace a couple of  trees and shrubs that did not survive a bad winter.  Working with the folks at Ream Design over the past several years has truly been a pleasure and we highly recommend them.”
