This is the beginning of something beautiful

Frequently
Asked Questions

Are you expensive?

No, we have very competitive rates especially when you consider what you will be purchasing. And, relative to the quality and skill involved in our work, we are priced accordingly.

How can I trust I'll be happy with your work?

Google us, Facebook us, and peruse our outstanding reviews here, here, and here. Also, please browse through the gallery. These images are all projects that we did.

Do you charge for designs, estimates or consultations?

We do charge for on-site consultations and project designs. In order to estimate a project to a certain degree of accuracy, we must first create a design.  In order to create a design we must first invest the time and attention necessary to derive such a plan, including on site personal consultations and hours of drafting/revisions.  Only then can we know just what we are estimating. The cost for an on site consultation is $125.00.  The cost for a consultation with a design will start at $350.00.  It is not unheard of to spend up to 5% of a project’s estimated cost on Design and Planning work. Our fees are under 1% of our typical project.

Will Danny be on site for the project?

Yes, every time. Not every minute of the project’s duration, but every day -several times a day.

What's your booking schedule look like?

We are usually booked pretty solid. All project slots sell out every season. It’s best to book in advance, before the season begins.

Will I need a deposit to book a slot?

Yes, we do need a commitment when booking large, valuable time slots for projects.

Will my final bill be more than the estimate?

It is very common for clients to add items to a project as they see it unfold. So most likely, yes.

Who is the child in the photo, and does he work on your crew?

The child is my beautiful son, Jasper, and he thinks he is helping dad with the equipment. We do not employ child-laborers 😉

Our Work

If we are chosen for your project, you will win, hands-down. We have never failed a mission. We take your dreams, and mix it up with our first-rate service, add sugar, and then it becomes reality. Here are some examples:

What our clients have to say

Danny and his crew (Ben, Jason and Chase) spent almost 2 weeks working on a terraced retaining wall in my backyard. They did an excellent job and it was a job done right to last a very, very long time. They took into account the slope of the yard from one side to the other to make the wall straight and balanced. Danny is willing to work with customers to make a project fit the budget while not cutting corners. They also did a great job cleaning up after the job (even sweeping the street out front). I am so happy with my wall and look forward to using the space next year for gardening. I would happily recommend Danny and team.

Marisa Sherbo

Danny, Jason and Ben are bonafide rock stars at landscaping. They transformed our front yard from an eye sore to something I just can’t take my eyes off of. Our yard is a true work of art now. From beginning to end, not once did I worry or question if the job was going to be done. Always on time, courteous, funny and turns out…… FANTASTIC chicken wranglers! Ask them about it.😉 Do not, and I mean do not hesitate to have them turn your yard into a work of art! Until next time, you guys! Thank you from the bottoms of our hearts! Keep on rockin’.

Tara Taylor

For weeks I interviewed landscape companies and was unimpressed. Then one day I stumbled upon Danny and his crew in my neighborhood.

When Danny came by to look at the yard and discuss the project, I knew we’d found the right guy for the job. Not only did he have over a decade and a half of experience, he (like me) was a bit of a perfectionist.

It was really enjoyable to have Danny & his crew at our house. They were punctual, professional, friendly and worked hard all day, every day. They even tolerated our crazy pup and 3 VERY inquisitive children.

I have been very pleased with the results of our project. All of my expectations were exceeded and I could not be happier. We will be recommending Danny to everyone we know looking for an experienced, talented landscape architect who just happens to be a really nice guy. Thanks Danny!

Maigan Shifley

We couldn’t be happier with Danny and his crews excellent work. Being new to Columbia we were a little overwhelmed with the many choices out there but thanks to a referral we landed in the company of a Great Guy whose work is definitely deserving of a 5 Star Rating.

Debbie Rice

You can’t go wrong with Danny and his crew. They are friendly, work hard and produce first-rate results every time.

Don Sievert

Dr. Danny is my horticultural hero. He’s the Monty Don of the Midwest and will make your big landscaping dreams come true. An admitted perfectionist, Danny and his crew were the ultimate professionals, worked hard and efficiently, were conscientious regarding costs, and paid attention to the smallest details. My project exceeded my expectations and I look forward to moving on to the next phase in the spring.

Michelle Mathews

Danny and his crew have been to our property four times to work their magic. That alone speaks volumes.

It is hard to put into words the dramatic change Danny made to our front entry. We had to replace the water and sewer lines which turned our entryway and the front of our lot into an eyesore. Danny, Ben, Cody and Jason worked tirelessly in the hot sun and transformed the place making it a show stopper. Cars are literally stopping and the drivers are staring at the dramatic changes that were made in a mere 8 days!

Danny is easy to work with whether you have a vision or not. I had a specific design in mind for part of the project and the team quickly turned it into a reality. For the remaining part of the project Danny was able to draw up a design and recommend plants. The executed design is perfect!

We are so pleased with the many talents of this team – drainage, hardscape, deck, fencing, electric, plantings. It is rare to be able to find someone that has the abilities to do as much as Danny’s Landscaping does, and even rarer to find someone that is so pleasant to work with!

Carmen & Jenny Chicone

Danny and his crew do things the right way, period! They don’t cut corners. Our project was a small scale project but they made it feel like we mattered as much as the next guy. They are also very friendly and easy to talk to. Don’t be fooled by the other guys – go with Danny’s Landscaping and experience greatest yourself!

Jason Adams

I had Danny and his team come out and redo my gazebo/sitting area and my fence gates. I could not be more EXCITED about the amazing transformation that they did to my yard. Danny was very professional yet funny and personable. I felt like my needs were taken into consideration and everything was reasonably priced. His team delivered a very beautiful and sturdy patio area for me to enjoy for MANY years to come. Thank you so much for the amazing new yard!

Tandi Lord

Danny’s Landscaping is more than your typical landscaping company. Danny offers thoughtful, intuitive and creative design that is unique and inspiring.

His attention to detail in the design phase is not the typical cookie-cutter approach to landscaping & retaining walls, nor is it static. The design changed, in a positive, more impactful way, while he was on-site and executing the project. He listens -and I mean really listens to your input and communicates effectively about every phase of the project.

He and his team are flexible and accommodating, as they battled the rain and scorching temperatures to complete the project. I would highly recommend Danny for any project that you may be considering, from renovation to new landscape design. He can do it all!

Tammy Bagley

Danny and his crew have helped me out with two projects and it couldn’t have gone better! I highly recommend Danny’s Landscaping to anyone who needs to beautify their space.

Carl Neitzert

Danny and his team did a fantastic job on our project. They were reliable, always showed up on time, and were unfailingly polite and friendly. Danny designed our patio expansion and stone steps on the side of the house, and his eye for design was extremely impressive. We even came in under budget! We absolutely plan to use them in the future and truly appreciate all their hard work and time spent on our yard.

Emily Smith

In 2017 Danny’s landscaping was referred to us by a local, reputable concrete company who was completing our backyard patio.  We wanted a landscape design expert to come in and create an oasis that set apart our property from the rest. When it came time to sell our home, the realtor chose to highlight Danny’s backyard landscaping job to advertise our home.  To this day, we have continued to work with Danny and his team each spring for the past seven years.  

Their landscaping services have included:  a large fountain installation, retaining wall addition, the creation of new berms to feature large trees, spring clean-up and mulching, and even a stone sculpture as a focal point within the aesthetics of our wooded lot.  We depend on Danny to advise and guide us in our vision for our beautiful new yard. Danny is a creative designer with the credentials and background in botany to deliver a knowledgeable plan for each project. 

Over and above the exceptional finished products each year, is the quality of workmanship provided by Danny and his team of professional landscapers.  They are a group who have a solid work ethic; they have never wasted a moment on the job.  Danny has developed a team who offer service with the utmost of professionalism. Our experience with Danny as a leader and business owner has been the best and we look forward every year to working with him and his team. 

Paula Tinnin

Danny and his crew just finished our project. It was our side yard and it had a steep grade but it was the only place we had to put in a private yard where our dogs could run around without being tied up. We also wanted a private space to have a garden and just be able to be outside.
We had horrible erosion and the railroad ties we had put back there to terrace the yard and keep the hill intact were an absolute disaster. It looked terrible. We had lived with it like that for several years. It was a very tough project and I was afraid we wouldn’t ever find a way to make it a pretty space. Danny and his crew were our miracle workers. Now we can walk out on our bottom deck with our pets and enjoy the space. I have a raised garden to actually be able to put my garden in the ground instead of putting them in bags in my front yard. I’m so happy with our new space and so thankful to Danny and his great crew for making my dream come true. They were neat and clean, always leaving everything put away and cleaned up at the end of the day. I would definitely recommend them for any project you are dreaming of!!!

Johanna Jones

Danny and his crew Ben, Ray and Jason are the best. I initially contacted Danny 4 years ago to landscape our front yard. In the middle of the design process, my mother became ill, subsequently died and I did just did not want to have to make decisions about landscaping at the time. Danny was so kind and empathic, he took over the process, never pushing me and was always ready to listen to me, even if I didn’t want to talk about plants. The yard turned out beautiful, better than I could have imagined. We have neighbors stop and ask us who did our landscaping constantly. Danny is by far, the best contractor, of any contractor, I have ever used as a homeowner of 32 years. He and his crew maintain the landscaping in the fall and spring, making it look as beautiful as the day it was initially completed!!

Barb Wyatt

The work Danny Carroll did for us was superb. His responsiveness was excellent, and customer service outstanding! Less than 24 hours after the project was described to him I had a conceptual drawing with details of how the drainage system would work.

Randall Kilgore

Danny has worked magic in our yard over several years. From discussions to design to installation, everything he does is efficient, well-executed and fairly priced. The fact that he and his crew are so awesome is icing on the cake. I actually look forward to another project!

Suzette Waters

It is a distinct honor and pleasure to express my complete and utter happiness with Danny’s Landscaping. I was in need of a retaining wall and distraught since other businesses refused to address my problem. Danny, however, was eager to accept the challenge and assured me that “we have never failed a mission and do not intend to start with this one.” I was so pleased and relieved that I asked for landscape work in addition to the retaining wall. When Danny sent his estimate he also promised “to deliver the very best experience and extraordinary craftsmanship with our team of great men.” I was not disappointed!
Danny and his dedicated team, Ben and Jason, spent two weeks transforming my failing backyard into a work of art. The retaining wall was built with extreme precision and meticulous workmanship and features an eye-catching staircase. The design, layout and installation of trees, plants, grasses and sod created a very attractive and exquisite transformation from a dull and unusable space to a backyard filled with warmth, joy and sparkle. It is truly a thing of beauty.
I will forever be grateful to Danny and his team for their exceptional work, their tremendous abilities, their kindness and their dedication to a project well done. You guys are amazing!

Roberta Mullen

When we purchased our home, it had never been formally landscaped. We had seen Danny’s work in our old neighborhood, and liked what we saw. We asked Danny to complete the extension of our gutters, as well as landscape around the house. Danny listened to our requests, and fulfilled each one. He also had good suggestions that we implemented. He and his crew worked efficiently as a team, and were always professional. Danny was mindful about communicating with us daily. We are very happy with their work and would recommend Danny’s Landscaping! Our home was transformed from drab to fab!

Charlene & Phil Heller

Would you like to hire a landscaper, and not have a doubt in the world that they are the best? Guess what, you are in luck…YOU FOUND THEM!

Danny has worked with us for three years in a row now, and we couldn’t be happier with the beautiful work he has done, not to mention the hard work and perfectionist aspect he brings to the table. PLEASE, don’t waste your time calling someone else, or “shop around”, this is who you want. Trust me!

Ryan Kirchhoff

We are one of the lucky ones that gets to take advantage of Danny’s Spring Clean Up. It’s my favorite time of year to get back out in the garden and Danny and his crew always make it look fresh and new each spring, even before things start to bloom. Danny and his team are always friendly and professional, and they pay attention to every detail. They are super knowledgable about trimming bushes and everything else garden related. It’s clear Danny really loves what he does, as he always shows up with a smile and ready to make our yard look its best.

Christine Grace

I have known Danny for years, and he is truly an artist. He did the landscaping/revision on our MAJOR house addition project, and I can say without reservation Danny (and his crew) single-handedly saved the entire project. I would love for anyone reading this to actually see this project (if it is possible I give permission for the pictures of my project to be linked to this review). Danny has an artistic vision, and can see landscaping possiblities or opportunities that are truly amazing. He is honest, and if something is beyond his scope or expertise, he will quickly admit it and then give you the name of someone who can assist: this happened a few times on this remodel, and anyone Danny recommended turned out to be as good, honest, and effective as him. Throughout this remodel project, ALL of our other construction subs took longer than promised and cost WAY more than bid– the only exception here was Danny, who spent an inordinate amount of time fixing the others’ errors and mis-steps. I truly admire his vision, a I applaud his work ethic, and I value his honesty. If I can give any further information I would be happy to do so, for anyone considering any kind of landscaping project…but just to warn you, I will be full of effusive praise for Danny Carroll and his team. They rock.

We were told by a neighbor that Danny and his crew would create us a “Garden of Eden”. Boy, did he know what he was talking about.
Our job was not a large job like some of them shown, but the love, thought and care that went into our project and so much attention given to it..
Can’t say enough about Danny and the guys.
HONESTY, HERE WHEN HE SAID HE WOULD BE, BEAUTIFUL PLANTS, YOU NAME IT. We are
already thinking about another project for fall or next spring
Give him a call, you’ll be glad you did.

Jerry & Barb Gillaspie

Danny and his crew finished a project on our rural property a few weeks ago and we are just delighted with the result. We had constructed a new garage earlier in the year, and Danny and his crew built a beautiful flagstone driveway/courtyard and matching sidewalks that curl around the porch on our Victorian house. The whole experience of working with Danny was a great one–from designing the layout to delivering the materials to installing the stonework. Everything was done in a timely and efficient manner and Danny constantly touched base to let us know about the rate of progress. And he and his crew are skilled craftsmen–they really know what they are doing. We recommend Danny’s Landscaping with great confidence for any stonework project you may be considering

Steven & Patti Watts

Danny has been wonderful to work with. Prompt response and a reasonable price. We are getting our house ready to sell and he provided very prompt and professional service and made our (very neglected) yard look so much nicer.

Kimberly Earnest

Danny and his team completely TRANSFORMED what used to be a beach on our lake into a breathtaking sanctuary! We had originally wanted a gazebo and a dock, with Danny’s imaginative design, it turned out far more beautiful than we ever expected. He really went all out on this project!His crew has impeccable work ethic and talent. They work together like a well oiled machine! This team is just that, a team, one that cares about the clients property as if it were their own. I can’t say enough great things about Danny’s Landscaping. It was such a pleasure working with all of them, these men are polite, professional and driven to please the customer! We will be having Danny’s back for any future landscaping needs! Thank you Danny, Ben, Jason and Jaryd for making magic our family will enjoy for years to come.

Jennifer Curry

Danny and his team are very creative. They see and create possibilities that I could not have imagined. They are on time and and on budget – an all around class act. My wife and I are now looking for new projects to get them back out to the house for another round!
