I am so much happier with our landscaping! The designer and workers at Dutch Barn were wonderful to work with and gave us exactly what we envisioned.


Dutch Barn did a major landscape project for us over the last two seasons. They were professional and easy to work with and we were very happy with the results.

We really appreciate how great Dutch Barn has been regarding communicating with us on our project. No other landscape company or similar industry has been on top of things like you have been. I will highly recommend Dutch Barn for that reason. Thank you!
