Big Bend Landscaping Testimonials

We loved working with Big Bend landscaping. They were always communicative, prompt, and professional. The finished product looked exactly like the rendering that they provided prior to the project starting. Everyone that we worked with went above and beyond to make sure the project was done correctly. I would gladly recommend them.

We used Big Bend Landscaping for a backyard reno of our Tower Grove home, and they were outstanding. The project involved digging a trench for an electrical line to be buried, tearing out a large amount of existing hardscaping, tearing out the existing yard, and then installing pavers, a fire pit, landscaping, and new sod. The owner and site manager were great about coordinating the work and communicating with us, and the team that installed everything was fast and reliable. Everything turned out beautifully, and I highly recommend them for yard renovations.

Big Bend Landscaping did an excellent job on our retaining wall. The whole process from the initial phone call to job completion was an easy and pleasant process. The installation crew did a phenomenal job and my wall was completed in a day. The job site was left spotless without a piece of the previous shrubs left in the yard. I highly recommend using Big Bend Landscaping for any and all of your landscaping needs!

We love Big Bend Landscaping!

We’ve had two major projects completed by the BBL team, and both have been pro-level from start to finish. John Brown met with us in 2021 to discuss the tear-out of a large, concrete retaining wall that ran 126′ in length, as high at 8′ in some places, and replace it with a block retaining wall. Not only was John the most impressive contractor we met with in the bid-stage, he also came in at the best price. The entire project took just under the proposed three weeks from start to finish, and we have a wonderful, secure retaining wall that we’ll trust for years to come.

The next year we wanted to build a shed foundation on a slope in the corner of our yard, plus a patio with a seating wall. John took our vision and made it into reality. The project was finished on time, and we have received so many compliments on our revitalized outdoor space.

Additionally, the front-office manager extraordinaire – Katie – is a master coordinator and communicator. She made the supply and material selection effortless.

Finally – the installers for both projects were professional and courteous. While we don’t have any plans for another project, this company remains on the top of my list for recommendations to friends and family, and they will be the first company we call when we start a new project.

BBL- Michele testimonialFrom Day 1 we have nothing but great things to say about working with Joe, Jose, and the entire team. My husband and I both think that their professionalism and work is over and above many we’ve worked with in the past. You will not find a team more prompt, clean, pleasant, accomodating, and informative. The communication and updates during the entire process was second to none. They were always here when they said they’d be. They were timely and efficient. And the work….. It was over and above our expectations.

This is a very meticulous group.
They did a patio extension which included pavers, rocks, and drainage relocation. The work was so good that while they were here we asked them to redo our retaining wall in the front of the house and place new rock in the flower beds!!
I would use them again 100%. I’ve not a single negative thing to say. We speak from experience when we say you will not find many businesses like this anymore. Use them for sure!!

After a comprehensive search which solicited bids from 6 reputable hardscape companies, we decided on Big Bend Landscaping/Hardscape (BBL) for our patio and walkway project. So as not to bury the lead, BBL was thoroughly professional, experienced and efficient and did an outstanding job on our project, exceeding our expectations. Project manager and co owner ********************* was one of the most knowledgeable and accommodating persons we have ever had the pleasure to deal with. Despite a flood of our questions, concerns, delays and yes, changes to the plan, *** was immediately responsive and invariably offered very helpful suggestions. We were fortunate enough to have crew chief ** and his 3 family members as our work crew. ** himself is a magician with the Bobcat, and ****, Polo and ****** worked so seamlessly, you would believe they could do this in the dark with their eyes closed (which in fact they did at 5:30 pm). It was fun watching a team perform so efficiently. Our project required removing not only a **** square feet of 50 year old brick patio and walkways, but also in some cases over 12″ of concrete foundation heavily interspersed with rebar. Try doing that with a bobcat. Despite those obstacles, what could have easily been a 7-8 day project was completed to our satisfaction in 3 1/2. Post project cleanup was a significant part and the crew did their best to get things back to normal including power washing the driveway, protecting the long, wide bare area where the bobcat traveled and picking up the odd pieces of brick, paver and other unused supplies. If you are looking for a high quality hardscape company, you can stop here. For those who may be interested, ask *** for a copy of the daily video taken while they worked the project to get a good idea of how they perform.

Joe, Kendall and crew provided a great experience in the building of two retaining walls. Joe was responsive and provided a very fair bid.

We talked to at least six concrete and landscaping companies before finding Big Bend Landscaping. Joe listened to our ideas and went through several rounds of 3D renderings before we settled on a plan. We had a vision of what we wanted and Joe made it all work. Communication was easy throughout the project, and the crew did a great job on the site prep, the framing and the finishing of the concrete. They also made sure to clean up at the end of each day.

Had a paver patio and block stairs installed and replaced all the existing grass with sod and could not be happier with our experience. Joe was very knowledgeable and flexible with the project determination process. He was quick to provide information on various options and give pros and cons to the different selections without being pushy. Was genuinely invested in making sure we were happy with the proposal before moving forward.

As for the actual work done, Ryan and his crew were extremely professional. The end result of their work far surpassed our expectations. They were always respectful of our property and the property of our neighbors. We will be contacting Big Bend for any future projects and have already recommended to friends, family and neighbors who have been overwhelming with compliments on the transformation of our front/side/back yards.

John, Ryan and his crew did an outstanding job on our project. They were friendly, courteous, and not only did everything they said they would do but continue to help us with any questions we might have. Their insight, knowledge and professionalism was invaluable. The customer service from the whole company was far above what you get from most companies today. Thank you for all your help. The side of our yard was falling off causing drainage and foundation issues.

We are extremely satisfied with the work that was done and are already thinking about our next project. We have had numerous compliments on the project and already have had people come by to look at it that are considering Big Bend Landscaping for themselves.

John Brown from Big Bend Landscaping is outstanding! I had a drainage project, where I worked with John and his team. The project had significant changes to scope after starting. The project also had challenges with timelines, which I was concerned about. John’s ability to pull a team together, successfully met the goal, despite the hurdles and commitment to MY goal was EXCEPTIONAL!

John was overseeing progress and challenges throughout he project, keeping me in the loop and providing options for the duration. Johns attention to the progress prevented delays by switching crews as the complexity of the work increased. Most places wouldn’t or couldn’t do this. Absolutely REMARKABLE!

Ryan Wagner was also a key player. Ryan was dropped in the project halway through. Upon his first day of seeing the project, he pointed out solutions that didnt impact cost but improved the solution.

John Brown and Ryan Wagner were both rock stars…very happy with Big Bend Landscaping because of them.

Russ – Ellisville

My husband and I contracted with Big Bend Landscaping in July 2022 for a patio extension, which included tearing out old landscaping and overgrown plants, tying into existing structures, and installing lighting. We met with multiple companies throughout the spring and early summer and decided to use BBL based on two things.

  1. Joe created a computer design of what we were envisioning. BBL was the only company to do this as part of their bidding process, and it really let me see how they were going to tie into our existing corner landscaping. It also helped me envision how the lighting would look.
  2. They offered the best scheduling of anyone. While other companies were quoting 6 months before being able to start the job, BBL quoted just a few weeks (and they actually were able to start sooner than what was quoted!).

Everyone at BBL was a joy to work with – Joe, Katie, and the construction foreman were all wonderful. The crew worked long hours in 100+ degree heat and was able to finish the work in a day and a half, while never neglecting workmanship or quality. Joe came by a day or so later to see the work and make sure we were happy with the results. We hope to have the opportunity to work with Big Bend Landscaping again in the future!

My wife and I used Big Bend Landscaping for our patio in Brentwood and they were nothing short of spectacular. Joe came out for the consultation and re-worked the design for us a couple times. He was responsive and professional throughout the process, and they were able to schedule us very quickly, and they stuck to schedule, minus a couple rain delays. Katie got us squared away with all the materials and clearly knew exactly what she was doing. Their online billing and scheduling portal was easy and helpful. The foreman and construction guys were efficient and clean. Most importantly, the patio and sitting wall look fantastic! They also re-routed some drains for us.

Overall it was a great experience. I would strongly recommend giving them a call.

Big Bend Landscaping recently completed a 23’x38′ hardscape with fire-pit, and corresponding drainage changes, as part of a backyard patio makeover. We got several quotes and Big Bend was about in the middle. After working with Joe, reviewing their work, and seeing his CAD renderings, we decided to go with Big Bend. And although the project costed more than we envisioned before we started getting quotes, we could not be more happy with the final outcome.

The folks at Big Bend are top notch and we can’t wait to work with them again. Joe is a very easy-going sales guy who doesn’t force anything on you and has great ideas for you. Ryan, as busy as he is, is an unbelievable Project Mgr for a very caring crew. We couldn’t believe the time and care they took in their work. Santiago and the rest of the crew are the type of folks you want working on your property! And Katie did an amazing job in communicating all changes and requirements.

We can’t wait to get the pavers sealed (next year) and give us that wet look, but we also look forward to future projects with Big Bend. We will not even bother looking elsewhere. It’s very, very hard to come across quality people in your vendors, and they are a treat. Trust us.

Everyone was on their “A” game the entire time. We could not be happier with the new retaining wall and the garden patio and wall we had installed.

Everyone exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend them for your next landscaping project. Thanks everyone for a job well done!

He came out to discuss ideas we had for a sloped area on one side of our front yard, as well as to give helpful suggestions. Ryan was very helpful in supervising the crew that came, and we were able to reach him with any questions we had during the process. Within a few days of the first project being finished, we had an idea for a second area of our yard, using some of the materials taken from the first project. Things went just as smoothly for that several weeks later. The men working on the projects worked so hard during some hot days, and cleaned up when they were finished. All in all, a pleasing experience, and we won’t hesitate to call them again if/when a new project comes up!

With recent torrential rains and construction on the hill behind us, we needed something to alleviate a severe drainage problem. John Brown immediately knew what we needed. The team came out and dug a massive “dry river bed” in a day that is quite lovely, and they were very responsive to some concerns we had in the process. I tried to wait until a dry, sunny day so I could include photos but the weather isn’t cooperating — I’ll try to come back and add those later. Fortunately, our river bed is hard at work!

I could not recommend this business enough. Every step of the way, this company was attentive to our needs. Upon reaching out for a quote, we had someone out to our house the next day and a quote just a couple days after that. Joe, the sales manager, worked with us through multiple options until we narrowed down our exact project details and product selections. I am still flabbergasted at how quickly the project team installed our patio and retaining wall. It was seriously start to finish in less than 2 days and without any trade-off in quality. Joe came out at both the start and end of the project to make sure the details of the project were properly communicated to the team and was in communication with us multiple times throughout the project on questions and clarifications we had. I am very happy not just with the quality of work done but the level of customer service we received.

Big Bend Landscaping replaced my patio slab with pavers. Beautiful and thankful for professional installation. Watching the rainwater drain; everything worked as promised and looks great.

Big Bend Landscaping put in a patio, fence and planted two trees for me. I cannot say enough about how professional their crew was and how wonderful it was to work with Joe Francke. We could not be happier about how everything turned out. The patio and fence are beautiful!! They are on time, clean up and very friendly. We will be hiring them again in the near future to complete our backyard landscape!

I highly recommend Big Bend Landscaping. Joe Francke worked with us to pick out the pavers and stone for our steps and seating bench. Drew up the plans with exactly what we wanted. The team of professional workers who installed the patio, steps and bench were very skilled and completed it in one day!!! It is beautiful, great for entertaining or just relaxing with our morning coffee!

Big Bend Landscaping does fantastic work! I had called to hardscape a large patio with a retaining wall in my backyard. JL and his crew were professional, personable, and AMAZING! Love my new patio, it completely blew my expectations out of the water.

John Brown was excellent to work with and very professional and attentive to our needs. We received a bid that was under what we expected to pay for our retaining wall and was sold from that point on. Ryan Wagner and his crew were assigned to do our retaining wall.

Ryan came by daily to check on everything and answered any questions we had. The crew was very polite, professional and friendly. They were always on site by 8:00am and worked very hard throughout the day. The retaining wall was finished in 4 days which was amazing & finished ahead of schedule. They cleaned up the work site so well that it looked better than when they arrived on the first day. We could not have asked for a better crew. We have received many complements on how great it looks. We are very happy customers and would recommend them to anyone!

I contacted Big Bend Landscaping about tearing out some existing landscape beds, an old retaining wall and some drainage solutions. Joe Francke contacted me within two business days and came out to offer suggestions. He listened to our ideas and went back and designed a project that even included a digital image of what the finished product would look like.

We were able to communicate electronically and every message I sent was answered promptly by either Joe or their Office Manager, Katie. They were both perfect during the process.

Within a week their crew came out promptly at 7am and worked relentlessly until the project was done within the same day. It would have taken me weeks to do it but it looked fantastic. It was installed exactly as the computerized rendering showed it would be. My fiance’ loves the finished project and I do too.

I wouldn’t hesitate to use Big Ben Landscaping again in the future! Thank you!

We are very impressed with the quality and design of our patio. The work was done in a reasonable time frame and Ryan kept in touch as we went along. The workers were professional and tidy.

Just wanted to let you know how happy I am. Brad and your crew were here this morning and when I came home for lunch they had removed all of the leaves, cut the grass, edged the walk and driveway…they did everything! The yard looks great! I am so happy I don’t have to waste any more weekends raking and mulching leaves. Seriously it would have taken me at least two full weekends working all day Saturday and Sunday to do what your guys did this morning. Thanks so much!

Bid Bend Landscaping just finished a retaining wall for the front of our house (two-tiered, steep grade)…they did fantastic work!! This is the second job they finished for us, the first being a beautiful paverstone patio and retaining wall in our back yard. From the sales/design with Joe Francke, to John Brown-the GM, to Ryan Wagner–the production manager…it was just a top notch experience…they started much quicker than they said they would and their construction team worked quickly and finished the job in just two days…they were all very professional and so easy to work with…and didn’t ask for the moon in their bid…I highly recommend them! My only regret is that they weren’t doing decks a few months back, and we had to hire someone else for our deck…but they now have a deck crew, which I’m sure is also outstanding!

John Brown from Big Bend Landscaping is outstanding! I had a drainage project, where I worked with John and his team. The project had significant changes to scope after starting. The project also had challenges with timelines, which I was concerned about. John’s ability to pull a team together, successfully meet the goal, despite the hurdles and commitment to MY goal was EXCEPTIONAL!

John was overseeing progress and changes throughout the project, keeping me in the loop and providing options for the duration. John’s attention to the progress prevented delays by switching crews as the complexity of the work increased. Most places wouldn’t or couldn’t do this. Absolutely REMARKABLE!

Ryan Wagner was a also key player. Ryan was dropped in to the project halfway through. Upon his first day of seeing the project, he pointed out changes that didn’t impact cost, but improved the solution.

John Brown and Ryan Wagner were both Rock Stars…Very happy with Big Bend Landscaping because of them!
