  • We cannot say enough great things about Larry and his professional team. What incredible work they have done in such a short period of time with the construction of our glorious patio! We celebrated our 35th Anniversary in magnificent fashion all thanks to Larry. For any potential customer, the best recommendation we can give is to say we did not sweat the details because New England Landscape & Management can be TRUSTED and then some. Larry previously did beautiful work with our front yard landscaping and sidewalk, but his latest patio work for us far exceeded any expectations we had. We cannot wait until Larry helps us with other outside and inside home projects we want to do.

  • I have been a long term customer and the New England Landscaping team has done a great job with our weekly maintenance and as well as our major landscaping projects. We constantly get complements on our lawn and landscaping. One thing that sets them apart, is when we have had major storm damage they have been very responsive and helpful even to the point of plowing us out on the famous Halloween snow storm. In other words Larry and Sherri care about their clients.
