Topiarius completed two jobs for me in the summer of 2022. Both jobs were completed on time. The job in Indiana was extremely impressive. An entire backyard with full landscaping, sod and plantings was installed in under a week. Chris is lovely and fun to work with and I cannot express how impressed we were with the crew. They worked tirelessly every day with care and consideration until the jobs were completed. The maintenance that I have since hired Topiarius to do has also been impressive. You can’t have a great company without great people.

They are responsive, punctual, quality, professional, worth the value.
