Jim Van Herk has been providing landscaping services for us for well over 8 years now. Starting with creating a flagstone edge for some gardens at our first home, we have continued to look to Van Herk Landscaping when we wanted to install any hardscaping.

At our new home, Jim has installed front walkways, patios and flagstone paths that are remarkable features in our property. When we added a garden house to our yard, we looked to Van Herk Landscaping to design and build the patios, raised beds and special features like stone benches that truly make our view breath-taking.

It is a pleasure to watch the pride in workmanship that Jim brings to every project he has done for us. Interlock and pavers were cut to precision and installed to perfection. Trees and shrubs are planted with care ensuring a healthy start right from the beginning. Even during large projects, the disruption was minimal due to the care and consideration Jim takes at the end of every day to clean up the work-site.

Thank you Jim, for helping making our landscape truly remarkable.

A letter sent to The Stone Place, after referring a client to Jim for landscape work...

Dear Sir,

I would like to compliment you on your contractor referral programme. I was informed that you would contact three contractors for me to obtain quotes. All quickly replied, two of which presented a quote for the installation of a stone patio.

Van Herk Landscaping not only quoted but also offered suggestions as to what should be done rather than what I had proposed. This was the deciding factor in selecting Van Herk Landscaping to install the patio.

Jim Van Herk arrived on the date promised, the workmanship was of the highest quality and the work area was always clean and tidy, tools safely stored, with the minimum disturbance to the surroundings. The job was completed on time and within the original quote. The end result is exactly as I had expected and completely to my satisfaction. Apart from the workmanship Mr. Van Herk is a likeable and pleasant person to have working around ones property.

For anyone considering having landscaping work done I would be very willing to recommend Van Herk Landscaping.
