We have built a fabulous native plant garden since we started with Schumacher. During these past five years we have seen our lower meadow turn into a healthy floodplain meadow, with thriving ferns, grasses, and some flowering plants. The area from the spring house to the pond is chock full of wildflowers and plants, and the stream is flourishing as well. It’s living art and you guys really are artists. You’ve created gardens and walls that withstand floods, hurricanes, and other wild acts of nature. You saved our stream bed, protected the pond, and built gardens that will last long after we’re not here to take care of them.
Your strongest suits are the hardscapes you build and the design of those gardens in conjunction with the stone walls and patios. You have master stone workers, and the various patios and walls are a constant source of delight and joy to us. Truly, your work is beautiful!!!
When there is an issue, Jeff comes and attends to it. We recommend you highly and have done so repeatedly to our neighbors. Your designs evoke a much more natural landscape than we see in most other gardens around here. It is a sophisticated approach to ecological stewardship. You gave us what we wanted – a really natural landscape. We are tremendously grateful for what you did and do.
The most important part about your work is your integrity. You listen, you respond, you care… and your people do their best. All the people seem to care about their work, the plants, and the land, and I admire that the most. You and your workers build relationships: it’s not just another day at the office. That means a great deal to Larry and myself.
You’ve given us a garden that is a treasure; we have a new young heron in the pond, and soon there will be more fish. What you have given us is a whole landscape of plants, wildlife, birds, young trees… and all of it is thriving. What could be a better gift to anyone?

We wanted to build a pool area that made our outdoor living area feel like a resort. Schumacher and Associates worked with us to get every detail right. Selecting the right material for our pool decking and coping was key, and Schumacher went out of his way to ensure we found the perfect stone for our project. His crew spent many weeks installing our pool coping, marble pool decking, and stone along a 20’ wall adjacent to the pool.
There was an area we had to connect an existing brick patio to our new marble pool decking, and Schumacher did an excellent job renovating this area. They carefully dismantled the old steps and used the old bricks to rebuild the new ones.
Shcumacher was wonderfully reliable and professional in every way. Schumacher understands that a five star outcome is in meticulous attention to detail. We are thrilled with the results of all of Schumacher’s hard work. Now we have a spectacular pool area to enjoy!

Since we started working with Jeff in 2009, he has tackled several major projects from foundation work and water feature installation, deck design and construction, wall repair from water damage, a French drain, and a retaining fence at the top of the mountain that our home backs up to. We like working with Schumacher because of Jeff’s responsiveness to our needs and his high quality of work. He is honest, has a high level of professionalism, and a strong work ethic

I have only positive things to say about Schumacher Landscape Construction. We have been very pleased with the work and our yard looks great. Jeff has done two big projects for us – the front foundation plantings along the house and the side and backyard new plantings. We are very pleased with the outcome of both projects.
What’s the best thing about working with Schumacher? Well from my experience, the best thing is Jeff. He knows his business, he’s creative, he listens, he works with the budget that’s been discussed, and he has a competent team of people working for him. Jeff is very customer-

Schumacher Associates has carried out several projects for us over the past several years. These projects included landscape design as well as hardscape. A major project was the design and installation of a “Riparian” area adjacent to Hough’s Creek for stream bank stabilization and erosion control. All of the Schumacher projects were carried out to our complete satisfaction. We highly recommend their firm.

In 2009, my husband and I bought a home on Comfort Road in New Hope. We hired Jeff Schumacher and company to correct some drainage problems and plant a few trees along our fence line. During the heavy rains and lightning storms of spring 2010, we lost some beautiful old trees so we again hired Schumacher. They terraced the hill where the trees had fallen, building a beautiful stone wall planted with shrubs, flowers, and a few young trees. This year they have transformed a mediocre front sidewalk into a wide terraced walkway and garden. The new area allows us to take advantage of an amazing view we always had but never fully appreciated. Jeff’s latest project made a bigger difference than I imagined was possible.
We have hired Shcumacher & Associates three years in a row. Why? Vision and flawless execution. Every project he and his crew complete comes out better than expected. I recommend Schumacher & Associates without hesitation or reservation.

Schumacher Landscape Construction has created a cohesive hardscape / landscaping plan throughout our 1.3 acre property that is low maintenance and yet earns rave reviews by family and friends. Jeff and his team are easy to work with, creative in their approach, and are able to work within a budget. Jeff has also increased our knowledge of plants and how to maintain them –ensuring that our investment lasts for a long, long time.
When we’ve done a project in advance of a specific event, Jeff has worked diligently to ensure the project was done on time for the events – can I really ask for more? We wouldn’t go to anyone else for hardscaping or landscaping projects!!
