Jay's design and his team's execution of it are superb. When designing the garden/landscape renovation, I had three primary considerations: 1) eclogical - the garden is for the planet, not just for me; 2) esthetic - the landscape should be beautiful and feed the human spirit; 3) ease of maintainance. Bees, butterflies and other pollinators visit in abundance. The garden is extremely beautiful and it's design fits perfectly with the style and situation of my house. Working in the garden is a pleasure. I highly recommend Green Jay Landscaping - Wonderful people, wonderful company.

Jay, I can't thank you enough! We are truly enjoying our garden oasis!! It is so amazing seeing the changes even in just a few weeks and all the daily visitors. And the kids are loving it! Thanks again!

This is a truly “green” company, with intelligence and experience to create a spectacular landscape in an environmentally responsible way. Jay is an innovator and a creative genius who transformed our property in a haven of beauty, color and tranquility, which is also a home for birds and pollinators.

Green Jay offers a unique product in both design and implementation. They were not the lowest quote we received for our project, but Jay's work is on a different level from most landscapers. His enthusiasm for his work is infectious. He transformed our landscaping into something that is interesting and sustainable. Jay started our project when he said he would and finished on time. He also continues to check in on the work to make sure that the landscaping is thriving. Our experience working with Green Jay in the past has taught us that their work will be easy to maintain, something that shouldn't be overlooked when considering value.

Jay and his team at Green Jay Landscaping transformed what was a boring, unsustainable, dead zone of turf grass into a vibrant native plant garden and meadow alive and buzzing with pollinators. The crew installed low maintenance plants and stone with manual tools and organic methods. The only sounds produced were of shovels and nature itself.
Jay is a true ecological master gardener. He and his whole team are passionate about plants and how everything is connected. They understand and appreciate that humankind's role in nature should be to nurture it and enhance it, not work against it with designs requiring polluting equipment and poisonous methods; that birds, insects, and leaves play a vital role in the food web; that attracting and sustaining pollinators in decline is responsible land stewardship.
If he plants it, they will come is true - the amount of Monarch butterflies, bees, birds, and more visiting the oasis that Green Jay created here has been breathtaking and unbelievably rewarding. We had no idea that the magic of a garden isn't the flowers themselves, but the life the flowers bring to the garden.
May this "new" gardening movement and restoration of pollinator habitat catch on and replace toxic "mow n blow" - it's time.

Jay and his team did a great job on planning and redoing our driveway and other plantings. I highly recommend him for any landscaping project. He has advised us on tree removal, water leaks, mulching, and redesign of our front lawn.

Jay and his organization are totally committed to providing creative landscaping in well-thought-out arrangements for fair pricing. If you are tired of the usual, I would have him discuss his ideas with you.

I cannot speak highly enough about Jay. Professional, passionate, and deeply committed to environmentally-beneficial design. He cares just as much about sustainability as aesthetics, and he did a good job of balancing our vision with his own. His crew clearly respects him as well, which is always a good sign. Already planning to work with him again in the future!

Jay and his team are passionate experts when it comes to the interplay of landscape design and the natural environment. We hired Jay's team to design and install new landscaping for our front and back yards in the Winter/Spring of 2018. They fine-tuned the design to our liking, helped us understand what could work in the environment, and got it installed on time! Our children thoroughly enjoyed the "Bird & Butterfly" garden all summer long - running outside to observe the monarchs and swallowtails at work!
The follow up to make sure the new landscaping is thriving has been great, and the monthly visits by Jay to evaluate the property are invaluable. We also switched to Green Jay for lawn care. So happy with the service and that we've chosen to go organic!

I hired Green Jay Landscaping to plant fall bulbs and generally spruce up my landscaping and have been extremely happy with their service. They are creative, environmentally friendly, pleasant to work with, and very responsive to any questions or concerns. I love my carpet of bulbs and will call them again when I need landscaping help.
