I hired Steve Shapiro for a complete residential hardscape/landscape redesign. Our home is mid-50s and had no significant interior or exterior upgrades since it was built. Steve created a plan for our corner lot that was nothing short of genius. We are now enjoying a gorgeous garden, patio, backyard that is seamlessly integrated into our neighborhood and our house. The transformation is incredible....and we aren't the only ones who think so. Neighbors and strangers alike are constantly stopping by to ask who did the work. I have recently invited Steve to post a sign so that folks stop knocking on the door!

We hired Shapiro Didway to design all of the landscaping for our newly remodeled home. This included plantings as well as hardscaping. Steve did a wonderful job of listening to our ideas, and combining them with his years of experience. The project was on time, on budget, and very reasonable. Neighbors constantly stop by and comment on how much they love the landscaping. Would use again!

I've worked with Shapiro Didway for some four years. They provide consultation and service regarding some 35 planters located throughout my property. I have the highest regard for their capable service. Selections fit the scale and look of my property and house in terms of color, size and types of plants. They routinely consider geography, climate and soil conditions in their recommendations. They are timely, responsive and professional. My planters look wonderful. I get great feedback from family and friends.
