What my customers have had to say over the last 30 years


Dixon
Thank you very much. Your time, talent and knowledge that you so professionally shared was much appreciated. I will look for the hardcopy in the mail.
Jean


Dixon
The wall looks fantastic. I would like to send you a check for the balance, $1,675.00, unless you advise otherwise regarding the extra wood beam that was used to complete the job. Thanks again and look forward to working with you on the deck replacement next year or so.


Hi Dixon,
Thanks for the beautiful patio!
Karla Kloc


Many thanks for the prompt attention to our recent problem. Your operation is very professional in every regard. Please put us in the book for next years clean up around the middle of May. Have a great winter.
Alan and Susan Safian


Check out today. Very nice job... thanks. Will call in a couple of weeks for some work on the front.


Thank you looks good, will put check in mail.
Joanne


Hi Dixon,
I didn’t catch Greg – they had to leave early because of the impending rain. I will give him the check tomorrow. Haven’t had a chance to talk to my husband about the other plantings. (Got Grandkids staying here, ah!) Thanks for the great job. Looking forward to the completed project.
Judy


Hi Dixon
The new wall looks great. As you probably heard, they ran short of lumber on the top in front of the sunroom. Can we have 12’ (1 ½ of the 8’ beams) installed to finish the job and let me know what the cost is? I look forward to the completion and the mulch.
Thanks,
Bruce


WOW!!!! You and your fellahs did an outstanding job, we are thrilled to bits!!!! Payment coming your way, we just got back today…


Dixon
Thank you so much for a job well done on my new patio and landscaping. My house looks awesome. I will put your check in the mail tomorrow unless I hear from you otherwise. Thanks to your brother and entire crew for all of their hard work. It is a beautiful result.
Kristen McCabe


Hello Dixon,
I thank you for the compliment. My patience is the the result of your sincere character and the quality of your advice and your work. The price for the new work seems too low for what I envision done - correct me if I am wrong. A nice edge has to be cut around each tree and bush, then add brown mulch. Also, the brick edging on the front two trees news to be straightened.
Regards,
Peter


Thank you for the prompt estimate! Yes to both jobs! I know you are very busy, but as soon as you can fit us in would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks, Alan Safian


Hi Dixon,
I'd like to thank you and your crew for removing the trees and bushes and installing the new plants last week. We are happy with the final result. We can finally see the front door, the landscaping looks clean and pretty. Thanks again! Should I go ahead and mail a check to your PO box for the completed projects?
Vicki


I thank you very much for getting back to me so quickly. I'm not really sure that I have any other options right now, however I'm afraid that I cant afford to pay that much right now. I'm kind of new to all of this and didn't realize how expensive it was and how much work it was to make your yard look nice. lol. I'm in the Army so all of my maintenance and beautification while living in the barracks and on base housing was always done for me:) Again thank you and I'm really sorry if I wasted any of your time.
V/r,
Amanda Ross


Hi Dixon, Hope all is well - know you are busy! I really tried to like those shrubs near the street but I have decided they need to go! What is the best way forward? I will happily buy plants from you (and pay you for the design plan) and plant them myself (I know you cannot guarantee them if I plant them which is ok) or if you have a gap in planting schedule (ha, ha) and can plant them. The landscaping is so gorgeous and makes the house look so much better! Please humor me on this one - this move has really sent me over the edge! Take care & tell the guys hi!
Laurie Yeandel


The daffodils are gorgeous. Everyday new ones bloom. I have people stopping to admire them everyday. My mother keeps asking me to drive her past my house so that she can look at them. That is very high praise. Thanks
Lizz Yasik


Dixon,
First of all, let me express what a pleasure it was to work with you. I felt from the very beginning that I had made the right choice - experiencing first hand, your knowledge of plants and shrubs, your trained “eye”, and above all your attention to detail and customer satisfaction. My family owned a flower shop upstate which was in the family for 99 years (until I came to the convent). I understand well the challenges of owning your own business and the energy it takes to meet customer needs; so, I am so very grateful! I have already spoke to the plant manager here about your services. Would you be interested in bidding on a yearly contract for mulching, wedding and planting the beds on the campus? If so, I will forward your contact information to him.
Thank you, again.
Sister Susan


You had done some landscaping for me at a local church in Coatesville and the work was beautifully done! I am now looking for someone to help me with tree planting. I am interested in about 6 emerald arbovites 6-8ft for my back yard. I want to make a natural fence. I am not sure how far you travel. I am in Ardmore, Pa. Please let me know if you can assist me, or could you suggest someone.
Thank you,
Crystal Johnson


It looks great - thank you We've already watered it Everything is surviving the heat well with the exception of one transplant that fizzled out week one - great success overall Thanks again


Dixon,
Just back from vacation. The mulch and the new shrubs look great. I need the address of where you would like our check sent to.
thanks,
d


That's pretty much what I have been doing except for every day. Thanks for your help and a job well done.
Carlene


Dixon
Everything looks beautiful! You did a wonderful job of blending with and enhancing the existing landscape. I'll put your check in the mail tomorrow morning. One of your men left a shirt here which we've left on the fence.
Thank you!
Jill


Dixon,
The driveway looks good. When I look at the the power wash, filling of the cracks and overall efficiency I can see the value in the job. In some eroded areas of the driveway I wish I had applied some asphalt filler prior to sealing.
Thanks,
Pat


Would you recommend Dixon Teter to a friend or colleague? Yes
Describe Your Experience with Dixon Teter: Good quality, fast, clean up well after themselves. Willing to work with you when there are unforeseen issues along the way. Overall, will recommend.


100% better. Thanks for taking care of it.


Dixon,
Hope Chicago is treating you well. Narayanan and I are very happy with the way the patio has come up. Now that we can see it in reality we were wondering if we could add a sitting wall and a walkway from the driveway/side porch. I know you had given me a quote earlier for these but they were based on a bigger sized patio. Would you be able to give us a quote for this? Even if we cannot do it right away we can plan it for later this year. Thank you!
Lakshmi.


Thanks very much. It looks good.I was going to call PA ONE CALL, but wasn't expecting you already. It looks good and your instructions explain the questions I would have had before receiving this. I'll have the check in the mail within the next couple of days, no later than Friday.


Hi Dixon. Thanks for the reminder. The patio looks great. Thanks.


Dixon:
Thanks your time and expertise on Saturday. Your employees were very professional and thorough- the deck already looks 100% better!
Best regards,
Patrick Powell


Hi Dixon,
The guys did a great job planting the flowers! Take care and enjoy your day!
Laurie Yeandel


Hello,
Thank you for the wonderful job mulching. But we need to pay you. I've got the check ready whenever you stop by. Unless you wish me to mail it to you. Just let me know.
Rich Kelly


Nancy emailed pictures of the gorgeous new look at 621 Concord Road! It's a dream come true! Your thoughtful consideration to making a property warm and welcoming is so very much appreciated! I feel so proud to have our regular "drive-by" friends and neighbors know that the ladies at 621 have some class!!! I can't wait to get home and send some pictures to the family!!! Thank You Dixon!!!!!


Dixon:
You need to know that I'm a city girl, who keeps her head down and mind my own business. You are ruining my reputation. I came home today from out of town and was overwhelmed with how beautiful you made the house. :) I just kept walking around looking at it all. While I was admiring it a lady stopped at the light honked and told me that the place looked really great. I received you watering instructions earlier in the day so I wanted to make sure I gave everything a good watering......well, 6 cars including a county inspector called out to me to ask me if I liked the work because it looks great. I told them all your name! I'm terrified to water the plants tomorrow morning...I might wear a mask! All kidding a side. Thank you so much. I don't even have words.
With appreciation,
Nancy


Would you recommend Dixon Teter to a friend or colleague? Yes
Describe Your Experience with Dixon Teter: all work as promised, and when they hit a snag, he has a separate party ready and willing to address it within 1 day, GREAT work,


Would you recommend Dixon Teter to a friend or colleague? Yes
Describe Your Experience with Dixon Teter: Fair price, job completed early, good cleanup. Dixon worked with us to get our walkway done in a timely manner as requested. Recommend.


Hey Dixon,
Thanks for taking care of the front bushes! I have a couple of questions... What would you charge to do a quick clean up and dusting of mulch? How soon could you come? :) Thanks for everything! I never got the chance to tell you how much I LOVED the daffodils! They are absolutely lovely, magical, and the best money spent ever! It made our back yard a wonderland straight out of a fairy tale, I loved it and enjoyed it so much I sent pictures to everyone. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Best,
Kate


Dixon - I wanted to say thank you for the fantastic job you did on the walkway and flowerbeds. It looks absolutely beautiful. Also, the pavers look so beautiful on the walkway that I think I would like to expand and replace the driveway with pavers. Also, I need to extend the parking area. At some point, would you be able to give me an estimate for this, if it is something that you do? Its not a burning issue, just when you have a chance. thanks, again.


Hi Dixon,
Just wanted to send you a picture of last summer's project in my back yard. As you can see, it is looking really nice. I am so happy with it! You came up with a perfect design. Many thanks for your perseverance in getting it worked out with me. Thanks again for your knowledge and creativity.
Judy Coles


Hi Dixon,
Thanks for helping us with the plantings in backyard today – it looks very nice and the kids love the turtleheads! We have a quick question: for the marmalade coral bells in the front yard, does the foliage change in the fall from umber/pink underside to green? We think we like the umber/sienna one better. Just want to confirm with you that we have the right variety.
Thanks again,
Emily and Yi


Hi Dixon,
Greg and his crew did a great job mulching my yard. There are several bushes I believe that need to be trimmed back - like the butterfly bush. I'd also like any old spent plants cut back or dead stuff taken out. I'll be away from today, March 20-27 but outside work can be done. I need to keep the yard in top shape since I'm getting ready to list it and have an open house in a few weeks. I hope to move to Malvern and I'll need your landscaping services - do you lay brick patios? Any ideas for a covered front porch floor? Brick is beautiful but expensive. The builder is recommending stamped concrete. I value your opinion! Have a great weekend and enjoy this spectacular weather. Thank Greg again for me. I was working with the realtors when he was over and I couldn't talk to him.
Maureen Notebaert


Dixon,
We have a few projects going on right now to get the house ready for the summer. Appreciate the great service!!
V/R,
Bill Mitchell


Hi Dixon,
your guys did a fantastic job with the walls and path. They look like new. thanks
JON


Dixon,
Thank you so very much for the beautiful deck. I love it. As far as what do we do next is concerned, I have not quite decided yet. The hot tub area is pretty exposed now that the trees are down, so maybe we should do that and the area where the privett came down along the driveway. But I will look at that this weekend and get back to you. I like all of your ideas but there is a lot of work to do. I don't know that I will get it all done this season. Since moving plants and putting in new plants are involved, I assume that we do have a time limit on how late in the season that gets done.
Thanks so much,
Lizz Yasik


Hi Dixon!
Thank you so much for the beautiful landscaping you and your team did for my home and my neighbor,Tom. I hope you, Greg and your families have a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend!
Doreen


Love your plans, still trying to decide what I am going to do and when. I do have a question, if I go with your plan any ideas on what paint color would look best on the trim, posts, shutters ( I still need to get), and front door? I want everything to look cohesive with your plans.
Sandra L. Gavidia


The patio looks great. Carol and I are very happy with the final product. I want to thank you and your team, including Vince, Ken, and Frank on a first rate job and for the level of quality and professionalism each team brought to the job.
Best regards,
Jim Fuchs


Hi Dixon,
I am happy to report that our new hedges are in good health and look great. Thx so much! What are they called? Deb


The daffodils are gorgeous. Everyday new ones bloom. I have people stopping to admire them everyday. My mother keeps asking me to drive her past my house so that she can look at them. That is very high praise. I just love these new beds!!!!!!!
Thanks/Lizz Yasik


Dixon,
Thank you very much. Your time, talent and knowledge that you so professionally shared was much appreciated. I will look for the hardcopy in the mail.
Jean


How much fun!!! Thank you for all the pics. I LOVE Stephanie returns, the 1st selection!
Thanks,
Kit


I like the plant choices and ground cover. Looking forward to see the the sketch. Thanks.
Jamie


They are doing a beautiful job. Please let me know when they will return. Thanks, Dawne


The two guys you sent are really hard workers and did a great job. I enclosed payment in a seal envelope for you which your guys took. I plan to purchase more trees in the future and wish to call upon you again for your services.
Thank you I am,
Shelia Himes


thanks so much for getting back to me. I also thank you for having spent some time on trying to show me how and where we could save a bit, I really appreciate that. I would certainly like to work with you, need to talk to my husband and I will be in touch shortly.
Thanks
Gaba Steele


Dixon,
Thank you very much for this….I am going to discuss this with my wife and call you on your cell phone or email you tomorrow. Also, I would like to confirm that some of the plantings to be removed from the front beds will be re-planted alongside the deck and at the back of my property as discussed. It was really nice to meet you yesterday. I truly enjoyed our discussion. Thanks so much,
Tom Valvano


That is great, thanks! How should we pay you? Check in the mail, or give it to your brother? Thank you!!
Kate


Dixon,
Wow – what a difference so far. We watered everything today except the Holly trees in the back. We need to make sure the neighbor’s yard is mended from all the large tire tracks – will that be possible. Bob will be coming home in the afternoon sometime if you need anything.
Thanks
Connie


Dixon,
We have been very happy with the retaining wall and walkway that you installed a few years ago.
Thanks,
Joel Schwartz


Dear Dixon,
Our expectations have been exceeded across the board! We love everything! I will send out a check tomorrow. Thank you for the watering instructions. See you in a few days for the acid wash! Again, many, many thanks.
Pam


Dixon,
That is fine. Everyone did a fantastic job.
Connie


Dixon,
Looks like you were here this morning. Everything really looks great.
Thanks,
Laura Mackey


By the way my wife loves your design she raved about it when she got home.


We are excited about all you are doing! The transformation has begun!! See you soon!
Judy and Don Davis


Dixon,
Thanks, the tree looks great. Do you think we need to stake it? The last one had a broken trunk, I think it was from wind.
Barbara Verica


Hello Dixon,
Thank you for the lovely sod. The yard looks great.
Thanks again, Jenifer


Thanks Dixon, the change you made makes all the difference. Thank you.
Cynthia Smith


Thanks Dixon—it looks great—we’ll put a check in the mail tmrw--thanks


The guys did a great job. Thank you,
Laura Mackey


Dixon,
The job looks good, thanks very much.
Joel


Thanks! The walk and the front bed look great! We might need you again in the spring to regrade/replant part of our backyard. Have a wonderful holiday!
Vernice Mulcahy


Dixon,
I hope you had a good holiday. Just wanted to give you an update about the water problems you addressed almost two weeks ago. Last Thursday we had the larger downspouts installed and that night we had a pretty serious rain so the timing couldn’t have been better. We had a second good rain yesterday and I pleased to report that we have had no water issues in the basement and the window wells had no water in them! I’m so pleased with this and really appreciate your timely response and ability to address the situation. I hope you have a wonderful new year and thanks again!
Kind regards,
Jeremy


Dixon,
Thank you and Greg for the work done today. Let me know how much I owe you and I will get a check mailed. Hopefully this will buy time until the spring.
Pat


Would you recommend Dixon Teter to a friend or colleague? Yes
Describe Your Experience with Dixon Teter: I awoke to a sink hole in my front yard. I contacted Dixon Teter and within 1 hour the job was completed very well and for a fair price. Very fast and through!!!


Hi Dixon,
Yes, I am in for this year. I would also like to get some more geraniums like I did last year – the Rosanne variety (the purple ones), but I would like to show you where I want them. Thanks, always a pleasure to do business with you
Diana Hoppe


Dixon,
Thank you for the sand. One year later, you still remember this. You hold your reputation very well. I will refer you to my friends and I will call you for futher help if i need. Thanks again.
Mr. dong


Hi Dixon,
Just got home and it looks great so far! Thank you! Thanks!
Maribeth


Dixon,
Nice job on the walkway. You delivered as promised. Thanks again.
Thanks
Rand


Hi Dixon,
The landscaping looks great and the Belgian Blocks do as well! What a great idea.
Maribeth


Good Morning, Dixon! Your team did a beautiful job on the spring clean up.
Thanks again,
Doreen


Bill and I are very happy with the walk with no concrete and clean from power washing. It looks new!


Thank you, Dixon. I will be in touch this week. Thank you much for your information and the color choices.
Carla Blakely


Hi Dixon,
Please put us on your schedule. I think you guys do a great job and I highly recommend you.
Cynthia


Dixon,
Greg stopped by and was able to help. Thank you so much for your help!!!!
Thanks again.
Sameer


Dixon,
Sorry for the late response but we returned from a spring break vacation on Sat then with Easter Sunday, things were crazy. The work you and your team did looks great. I will be getting a check in the mail to you this week. One thing that I failed to mention and want you to note as well on your records for future mulching work for us is that we prefer the black mulch vs the brown mulch. But please know that what was done looks beautiful. I just wished (and Gabriella reminds me of it often) that I remembered to tell you to use the black mulch. Next year!!!
Thanks again.
Anthony


Thanks Dixon. Looks great.
Martin J Dempsey


The rhapsody-in-blue saliva plants are doing a great job at keeping the deer away from the daylilies around the patio. I am wondering if we cannot plant some more around some of the hostas (Spelling?). I will leave it up to your artistic judgement whether they can be retrofitted into the main row of hostas out front. However, I think they can be added to the hostas around the red maple tree out front and along the hostas on either side of the shed. Other plants with the same properties are also possible. The area around the shed is mostly shade. If you agree, and are making another trip to the nursery soon, could you pick up 15 plants. More if you think they can be placed on the main hosta run. They don't have to be as big as you got the first time but it is ok if they are. Also can you get blueberry bushes cheaper? I am thinking of 4 along the side of the house. I am getting lots of complements on the job. I make certain to give you name out. With the plants starting to spread out a little bit and the grass coming in, it is looking very nice.
Steve


Someone told me to check out your website. Wow! Great site. I have two lilac bushes that I planted three years ago. They look healthy but no flowers for three years. Should I just give up. Thanks. Rose


Dix,
Thank you and Greg for all the quick work. The patio looks great, the trimming definitely helped the looks, and we already have an offer that we accepted. In effect, the house sold in one day!!!, thanks to Linda’s hard work and your great landscaping work over the years. So, let me know what our tab is
Randy.


Dixon,
Thanks, appreciate the prompt work in installing the new tree. I did want to ask, how much would you guys charge to dig an 'island' in the landscape and relocate some plants that I already have into it? I have a few plants by the front porch that are getting too big for the location, so I'd like to relocate them into their own little area out into the landscape.
V/R,
Bill Mitchell


Hi Dixon
Looks great, thank you so much. I can barely recognize the place and the backyard looks twice as big. I will put the check in the mail on Monday. I just had a few questions: What parts have the soaker hoses and which parts should I water manually. I assume the parts along the house in the back and stuff around the tree in the front are to be watered manually. Correct? How often and for how long? What about the manual parts? The drain part in the front has rocks over it and I assume that the water will drain through them, is that correct? Should i water the newly seeded grass areas? Do I have to call you about the maintainance in the fall or will you contact me? Please let me know. Thanks again very much.
Ilia


Hi Dixon,
Please put us on your schedule. I think you guys do a great job and I highly recommend you.
Cynthia


Dixon,
Thank you for getting out to do our estimate today I really appreciate it. After talking to Troy we have decided we would only like to price the stone wall. I look forward to having your estimate in an email tomorrow. Thanks again!
Jennifer T. Davis


Dixon,
This is great. Can you also take a look at our perennials - I'm sure the numbers are down and wouldn't mind some new ideas. Thanks!
Tom


Thank you very much! We will be looking to add a lot of trees as a border probably next fall. I would love to talk more to you about this in the future. Thanks Dixon!
Adrienne Stanton


Hi Dixon
I was liking the $1700 estimate a little better yesterday:) but my husband loved the pic of the lawn chamomile. That would be beautiful. Let's go with it and I know that you'll get the rock pathway to work out so we can see it. Do you think the whole area back to the trumpet vine should be covered?
Susan


Mr. Teter,
Thank you so much for taking your time from your work day to visit my home so promptly. I am sorry you caught me at an inhospitable time at first. I appreciated your professional, knowledgeable and friendly manner. We plan on making our home more attractive from the outside. The previous owner did not do so much, and we are now at a point where we can feel comfortable making some upgrades that will be quality, not the scalloped border type of thing you saw today( from k-mart garden section, surprise surprise) In terms of your ideas, I liked your recommendations for the harvest blend stone choice. Would the Dakota Blend be an appropriate option as well that might fit? I also liked your creativity about the options for the deck out back. I look forward to your estimates and options. When shall I expect an email from you with this information? Could you please attach a photograph of your lay out sketch?( for front walkway and deck/patio) Thank you again for your time. You work hard, and I respect what you do to be aggressive to get a customer's business.
Sincerely,
Erin Ahern
