Testimonials

We couldn't have said it better ourselves.

“We worked with di Stefano Landscaping on the Union Elementary School Natural Playground in Montpelier, VT. This project had its own unique set of challenges including boulder retaining walls, steps, pathways, rain gardens and soil restrictions. The di Stefano team partnered with us to work through these challenges to get the job done. They were on schedule helping us provide the students with a beautiful, long awaited playground.”

“As the general contractor for Autumn Pond, one of the largest multi-unit developments in Vermont, we needed a reliable and aggressive landscape contractor to keep up with the challenges of phased construction and changing client needs. Di Stefano planned ahead and hit every delivery date. They supplied the design for plantings, hardscapes, dog parks, public use areas that was thoughtful and cost effective.

On a personal note, Di Stefano has designed an installed hardscapes for our home that tied together the natural elements of living on Lake Champlain with the beauty of handcrafted stonework.”

“Truly amazing work! From design to clean up. This from a team full of Professionals! We couldn’t be happier with how our project turned out. Thank you!”

Paul Trahan

“The crew at Di Stefano are a joy to work with and they know what they’re doing! From the initial consultation to the final sweeping up, they’ve been nothing but professional and competent. We’ve had several projects done with them in the last few years (my favorite being our massive fire pit by the lake) and all of them exceeded our expectations and were in-line cost-wise with the original bid. They go above and beyond and don’t flinch in the least with mid-project changes. I would highly recommend Di Stefano and will employ them again in the future.”

Tom Hergenrother – Blackrock Construction

“It was still light when I got home tonight and I walked all around the house and up into the woods. What a stunning enhancement of the property. Just gorgeous! So many beautiful plants, shrubs and trees. It will be amazing to watch everything grow and bloom.

The driveway is beyond anything I had pictured in my mind. And the Zen-like stone work :-) in the back yard along with the additional patio space on both sides along with the sets of steps are magnificent. I am so happy with it all Chris, please convey my gratitude and appreciation to all the crew.”

Cynthia Langley

“Chris has been great to work with in getting our stone porch done! I met him once to go over the project, he gave a quote and I wanted to get it done quickly to surprise my wife by the time she came back from her trip. Chris was more than willing to accommodate it, actually he got it all done while I was away on a trip. Once done, he emailed me several pictures of the completed project! The porch came out excellent and substantially better than I have imagined. The level of detail, finish and quality were second to none. I was floored that he was able to finish the project ahead of schedule and got it all done in my absence! He has earned my business for life!”

Kishore Khandavalli

“Dear Chris, thank you for donating the labor and materials to remove the trees and bushes from our front flower garden near our Ronald McDonald house sign. What an improvement!

It was so nice of you to step forward and help us with this project. Your gift assists us continuing our mission to provide a “home away from home” for families with seriously ill children who come to the Burlington area seeking advanced medical treatment. Thank you again for your generosity.”

Pamela G. Fenimore, Executive Director Ronald McDonald House

“Dear Chris, The new Yews and Emerald Green Arborvitaes are doing well, and our grounds look so much better since your visit!

Please keep us on your list for next spring! Thanks again, John and Gina.”

John & Gina Boyden

“Chris di Stefano and his team are truly exceptional landscapers. They are artistic and meticulous. The screening to my nearest neighbor invokes a classic Italian image while the placement of three large trees, which took multiple iterations and careful appraisal, created a sense of space in a previously wide open back yard. We asked Chris to replace our wooden deck with a patio. Instead he came back with a very creative plan that utilized the existing deck and expanded our outdoor space with a beautiful patio built along the back of the house. He involved us in a thorough review of our plantings, the overall design, and explained the benefits not only in cost but in terms of utility.

Not only are we extremely pleased, but many of our neighbors took the time to tell us how beautiful the rebuilt front porch, steps, walk, patio and landscaping are.”

Bill & Gay Craig

“I have been working with di Stefano Landscaping for the past three years in reference to lawn & grounds maintenance and plowing for the many units I manage located in Burlington, South Burlington, Shelburne, Colchester, and Essex Junction. I have never had any complaints from owners or tenants in reference to their quality of work over the years and have been very happy. I have found them to be very professional to deal with and extremely dependable in getting the work done in a prompt manner.

I would highly recommend di Stefano Landscaping for any lawn and grounds maintenance or plowing needs you may have.”

Barbara Sweeney

“Chris, My thanks to you for your efficient, creative landscaping. I appreciate that you worked within my budget and created a work of art. Your staff is knowledgeable and personable and that is a sign of a good manager.

I regret that I must move as I looked forward to your future work. I will recommend you.”
