Dear Mr. Downend,
My wife Sandy and I wanted to convey how pleased we are with the new walks and
landing at our home. Tony Portale was a pleasure to deal with from inception
to completion. Further, when changes, additions, and/or deletions were presented
to him he handled them professionally and expeditiously. In addition, your
staff who accomplished the work were both courteous and cleaned up after themselves.
I would not hesitate to recommend your firm and Tony to clients. Thank you
Carlos, George & Edgar,
Thanks so much for the beautiful front and side yards! You all are very skilled craftsmen and a pleasure to work with!
Paul & Ellie
Thank you so much for designing such a beautiful front walkway. Carlos, Edgar and George were a great team and a pleasure to work with everyday,
Nadine and I are exceptionally pleased with the work you and your team did. The results are terrific, you and your guys were a pleasure to work with, were
really patient with all the changes we asked, and I thought the pricing was
really fair. A really good experience (I wish all the contractors we
have worked with were equally good).
Of course, we will continue to use you for our sprinkler system maintenance
and will definitely use you for any additional landscape work.
I just wanted to say what a wonderful job Carlos, George and Edgar did! They
were so respectful and thorough. Their work was top notch.
I can certainly recommend J. Downend if somebody is looking for a landscaping
Thank you for your fine service.
P.S. – I love the slabs. Thanks for the ideas.
Special thanks to all who helped make our house a home!
Eric & Heidi
We wanted to thank you for the wonderful landscaping! We are so happy with
the entire package. You and your team were true professionals and a pleasure
to deal with.
Sue & Joe
I have to tell you, the entire community is buzzing about how wonderful a
job your company is doing. Mr. Smith commented that he has had landscapers
taking care of his property for the past 60 years and has never had this caliber

Thank you for the great job on our landscaping. We have received many compliments
and are very pleased with the results!
Your “crew” did a great job and were very professional.

J. Downend Landscaping, Inc.,
Thanks for doing such a great job on our patio. We will really enjoy it next
summer. Tony Portale did such a wonderful job with the design and walking us
through the entire process. Feel free to use us as a reference.
Susan & Bill
It would be an understatement to say we are pleased with the result – we
are delighted! Everyone who worked on the project was industrious and pleasant
and the finished result is exactly what we wanted.
I spend much of my work life helping clients deal with employee issues – among
them the training staff to provide quality service to clients. You and your
organization have mastered that difficult challenge and I congratulate you
on the results.
Thanks for a job well done!
Just wanted to write a quick note to say how pleased Steve and I are with
the front walkway and the landscape lighting that was just installed. Everything
looks great and it was a pleasure to work with you and the rest of your team.
You guys really do a wonderful job and we’re already looking forward
to “phase 2”
Theresa & Steve
Dear Mr. Downend,
We would like to take this opportunity to tell you how pleased we are with
the service we received from your organization.
Your crews arrived in a timely fashion, in uniform, and with all their tools
and equipment up and running. They did their jobs well with little or no problem,
all while maintaining a neat and clean area.
Your employee Tom Morris was a pleasure to work with. My husband and I found
him especially helpful not only in laying out our idea but with coordinating
and carrying out its completion. He never dropped the ball and no request we
had was to much for him to take care of. He was even useful with tightening
up some unfinished things we wanted done.
You should be proud of group you’ve put together. They represent you
as an employer concerned with detail and responsibility.
We look forward to this same level of service in our future projects with
Kim & Dave
Ron and I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and your crew for the
outstanding job you did on the front of our home.
The landscaping design and plantings are fabulous. I like the trees. shrubs,
and flowers that you used to make the front of our home colorful year round.
I also like the idea of the “uniqueness” of some of the plantings.
Most homes have the same type of trees, shrubs, and flowers: they all look
the same. Our home tastefully looks different yet elegant.
The walkway and lighting set off the total look. The circle in the walkway
has received rave reviews from everyone who has been to our home this summer.
With the current drought situation, I am so glad we have the irrigation system.
It has made taking care of our landscaping so much easier; it has almost been
I also appreciate your professionalism in dealing with our Home Owners Association.
We have recommended you and will continue to recommend you to everyone. However,
your workmanship, design and artistic ability speak for themselves; you really
do not need our voices.
We are looking forward to working with you in the spring on our patio and
backyard landscape design.
Ellen & Ron
To Whom It May Concern:
I am writing this letter to express appreciation of a job that was completed
at our home several weeks ago. We had a walkway installed along with grading
and reseeding. The foreman on the job (Fred) was extremely professional, polite
and patient with us. He was always ready to answer our questions and always
returned our calls in a timely manner. The work crew did a beautiful job. They
were always courteous and polite.
My husband and I feel that is important to express our thanks and appreciation
for a job that was expertly done.
Stefan & Marie
You’re the best!!!
Thanks again for a beautiful job.
