I can't say enough good things about Jon and his crew. Polite, professional, and provided a top-notch installation. We made new friends in the neighborhood from people stopping by and asking who did our new walkway! Their balance of function and form is indisputable and their work will last for years to come from all the attention they paid to all the small details and understanding of geography and hydrodynamics. You will not be disappointed!

"Our East Falls backyard has become an oasis, thanks to Jon Barmby and his crew. It was a mess of broken flagstones, cut-up spaces and a whole bunch of sticks, moss, stones and gnarled growth. We now have a charming yard with privacy, style and three dining/entertaining areas pulled together by a stone wall and brick pathway, both very much in keeping with the design of our older home.

The hand-stacked stone wall was a real accomplishment. It is curved in all the right places, and solidly built, all 75+ feet of it. We have a back yard, larger than we imagined, and there is a new area carved from existing garden beds that gets almost daily use. It all looks good, too.

And aside from the excellent end result, we can honestly say that working with Jon was a pleasure. His crew was very courteous and respectful of our family, and Jon himself is a contractor we would strongly recommend to anyone for any landscaping project."

“Jon Barmby and his team are amazing. We’re so pleased with all the work they did for us. Jon is one of the few contractors we’ve hired who was easy to work with, honest, timely and completed the job as promised. In less than a week, Jon turned our mess of a yard into a masterpiece. We now have a beautiful patio, sitting wall, grass, trees and plants to enjoy throughout the year.

Overall, we’re beyond thrilled with the outcome of the project. The fluid lines, functionality and quality materials used were better than we could have imagined. Everyone who comes to our home can’t get over the transformation in our backyard. It looks like a completely different property. In fact, some of our friends thought they turned into the wrong driveway when they came for a visit! We would definitely use Barmby Landscaping & Design for all our future landscaping needs. We recommend them to everyone we know!"
