Smith College-Enviromental Classroom

“An absolute pleasure – that is what it was to work with Scapes. As both general contractor and as the crew in charge of all site work, we could not have asked for more. Scapes put together a team of thoughtful, skilled, and creative subcontractors and oversaw their work beautifully. Our rigorous environmental requirements made this project quite difficult, and Scapes rose to the challenge and offered their own nuanced solutions based in years of experience to help to overcome them and meet the demands of our site and our program. In addition, the Scapes crew and their subcontractors were all personable and easy to work with. They take enormous pride in their work – going so far as to visiting our site with their families to show off their work. I am typically not one to rave, but I have found myself going out of my way to recommend Scapes to my friends and co-workers, and those who take the advice always come back to thank me for it. I look forward to hiring Scapes again when the need arises. “

“Thank you all so much for your work on the Fort Hill playground. The finished space is beautiful and the children are enjoying it almost as much as they enjoyed watching Mike and the crew build it! It was such a pleasure to work with everyone involved – thank you so much for everything – your responsiveness, attention to detail, collaborative way of working, and positive attitudes. Mike, Benny, and everyone who was here regularly were wonderful with the children, parents, and teachers. I appreciated their communication and the care they put into the project. Jay, Diana, and Nancy, thank you so much for all your thought and attention and for making everything happen so quickly and efficiently. We all feel very fortunate to have worked with you – it was such a wonderful collaborative effort.”

“Just wanted to say thanks for doing such a great job. The conditions were less than optimal. The stones look great. The clean up was very professional. Well done!”

Mill Lane - Amherst

“Thanks for the superb job the Scapes crew and sub-contractors recently completed on our extensive house renovations and front entry redesign. Neighbors and pedestrians continue to compliment Aaron’s grand retaining walls and stone steps. And two years out, I can report that the family house – 50 years after it’s construction in a wet location – finally has a dry basement and a properly drained driveway! From first survey to final landscaping we really appreciate how well your crew choreographed their own expert craftsmanship with the timely delivery of services from at least a dozen (by my count) talented local sub-contractors. Thanks again!”

Peace Pagoda

“I am writing to express our deepest gratitude to you for your most generous offering of several days professional work to repair the pond at the Peace Pagoda. It is now at the truly ideal level that the original Landscape architect intended -it has not been this beautiful in years!”
