"Many thanks go out to your exceptionally led Sprigs & Twigs team leader Pat and the team! The best Landscape Team ever! I am 100% pleased by their steadfast, expertly organized and the beautiful results of their dedicated hard work in beautifying our property. Al and I will surely recommend Sprigs & Twigs to our friends and neighbors. I would very much like to order your book, 'Best of - Ask The Landscape Professional.' Thank you for your recent email; I am so happy to have a solid relationship with the finest, well organized landscape company. And thank you for your beautiful expert pool garden design!"

"I was very pleased with the job Chris and the crew did – from the speed at which it was done and the clean up afterwards. Thank you to all. I will highly recommend Sprigs and Twigs to anyone who needs tree work done."
Charlie E.

"Being a homeowner is not for the faint of heart. It is especially anxiety-producing in a global pandemic. I wanted to take the time to give my deepest thanks to one of our own, Sprigs & Twigs. Back in December we had basement flooding at the North side of our house during a rain storm. We sent out an SOS to this forum and that evening S&T's owner personally messaged me and was at our house at 9am the next morning. The problem was HUGE to me but a breeze for Bill Lillie and his team. Since then we asked him back for a consult on our new house/property. He was SO helpful and helped us prioritize projects to be tackled. Between planned projects and the most recent rain, it again seemed like the house was going to be the end of us...but Bill and Kyle had it covered. If anyone here in Southeastern CT has a house problem (indoor or outdoor) please consider reaching out to Sprigs & Twigs. Bill has “a guy” for EVERYTHING and they should definitely be on the top of your list. No job is too small (or in our case too overwhelming)! Thank you Ledyard for welcoming us and taking care of us."

"I just want to let you know how much we like Richard, the young man who mows our lawn. He does a great job and he pays attention to trimming as well. Please pass this on!"
Elly and Dick C.

"I wanted to thank you and your team again for the wonderful job with my install yesterday. I'm sorry I didn't get to spend more time chatting with you. Your team was professional, courteous and hard working. Colleen has been superb to deal with! So kind, friendly and knowledgeable. She listened to all of my wants / needs / concerns, and with your help, everything is just how I pictured. I look forward to our continued working together. Also, I hope your leg/foot is all healed soon!"

"I wanted to pass along our thanks and gratitude to the landscape crew who gave our yard its yearly spring spruce up last Friday. As always, they did a wonderful job and the yard/garden beds looks great! I wish every company had the attention to detail that Sprigs and Twigs does. Many thanks for the continued great service you have provided us over the years. Warm Regards,
M. C.

"I just wanted to say we're very happy with Sprig and Twigs. Your employees are knowledgeable, helpful, courteous and polite. Always willing to go the extra mile!"

"We are beyond pleased with the outcome of this project...Our friends were astonished by the changes this project quote 'this spot always amazes me, I didn't think any changes could have made it any better - I was wrong! This is beyond better!'. Your vision, creativity and crews are the best."
Sharon & Jim G.

"The project and the work being done is better than we'd ever imagined!"

"We have had 6 or 7 of our homes professionally landscaped in the past, but we have never had anything like this!"
– C. H.

"The garden looks great. You did an amazing job choosing the plants and their placement. The maintenance crew did a wonderful job attending to the plants all season. Their care was critical to the successful start and flourishing of the plants. It is truly a joy to look at the garden and watch it fill out." – Mary

"You have such wonderful people working for you. They are polite, helpful and they don't smoke. They are not creepy looking. I feel safe to be in my own yard. They are clean, presentable and approachable." – Nancy

"My lawn looks the best it has in a long time!" – Pat

"I was and am delighted with the design and the hard work of all of the workers who contributed to the process. I love my new front yard!" – Mary

"You are the best! You are reliable and you listen to our concerns. Your employees are courteous and thorough" – Elly

"Yet again perfect and courteous service from your amazing crew! Your workers are exceptional and clearly take pride in what they do!"

"My husband and I want to thank you for all you have done for us, you went far beyond what you had to!"

"We look forward to working with your competent, friendly crews again. Both landscapers and tree men. We are very satisfied with another job well done."

"Please extend my thanks to your staff and crew. Your crew did a fantastic job! They cut and trimmed exactly what I wanted and cleaned up the yard afterwards. I'd highly recommend your company. Thanks again."

"Thanks! In deepest appreciation for the professional services provided by your company. We've enjoyed meeting Linda too. Without hesitation we'd recommend you highly to anyone interested in your services." – Sincerely, A.L. & R. L., Stonington, CT

"I cannot thank you enough for the outstanding job you did on the trees and landscaping around our home. Your trained eye and knowledgeable command of all the varieties of my plantings and their best position for optimal growth was superb! Your intuitiveness of what would look best around my home was like you had read my mind. I was so relaxed with your team. They are outstanding, hard workers. I have received so many compliments from neighbors on how my yard looks as well as how organized your team was. I am glad you were able to pick up additional business from my neighbor, as he had asked me for a recommendation. I hope more of my neighbors will call on you soon as well."

"Thank you for such an outstanding job! I feel like my 'overplanted' landscaping can 'breathe' once again and each specimen can be the star that it deserves to be!"
– Susan Turley, President, Stanton Farm Homeowners Association, Stanton Farm Neighborhood

"I cannot begin to tell you how much we love our yard. It is beautiful! We will take care to be good stewards of it in the years to come. Thank you for all that you did while we were on vacation in August. We were very impressed with your professionalism and 'can do' spirit when a problem arose. I would highly recommend your company to anyone considering a landscaping project. It was a pleasure working with your crew and thank you for giving me the opportunity to do so. You have a group of young people to be proud of. Please give them our best and our thanks." – Jack, Michelle & Thomas

"Gregg and I have had our dinner on the porch every night this week, and we have sat for a long time afterwards just marveling and enjoying our new space. Thank you for the gift of our garden! It is peaceful, natural, simply beautiful, just as you said it would be. As I water, I am appreciating the arrangement of the clusters of plants, different groupings for different places. There is so much variety of color and texture in the plants, and the stonework is a surprisingly beautiful addition. We love it all."

"You created a beautiful space – and it was a joy to watch you and your team work together. What a positive, creative, focused group of people. You came in with such good energy and so much enthusiasm, and with a spirit of cooperation that was pleasure to witness. Such teamwork is a tribute to your leadership and your spirit."

"Thank you for taking us as we are and working with us through our doubts. We learned a lot from this experience on many levels. I know that we will be in touch again soon. Today we wanted you to know how glad we are to have met you all, and how happy we are with your work." – Valerie and Gregg

"Sprigs & Twigs Landscapes did some property renovation and some replanting. They also did a tree service for us. They took down some trees and did some landscaping. They also trimmed some trees. I had a great experience with this company. They went above and beyond what was expected of them. The yard looked beautiful when they were done. They were very easy to work with. I would definitely recommend them. Their work is great..."

"Hi Bill and Linda, Charlie and I sat on the deck last night and were just amazed at the results of all your hard work. When he told me the process was like watching a military operation, I laughed. Only an old veteran would think that. I told my staff this morning I now live at a 'country club' and the only thing missing is the golf cart."

"Thank you again for making this happen." – Joanne and Charlie

"Bill, thank you for your generous donation to Connecticut College's Relay for Life. Your sign lined the track that 412 participants walked on for 16 hours. With your help we were able to raise $53,000 (and counting!) for the American Cancer Society. Thanks again!" – Jessica L

"Linda, you bring a fresh perspective to landscape design, installation and maintenance. You are very prompt, extremely organized and detail oriented. You definitely provide your clients with the best product available." – Rich

"Dear Linda & Crew - Thank you for my beautiful & so much more than I expected landscape. I've been waiting a long time for this & now thanks to you and your company, I'm completely happy I chose you! Just what I needed - natural & unassuming. Great job! Well done to all of you!" – Dee C.

"Linda provides a unique service advising me about plantcare when I am home and when I am away. Her respect for my garden makes me sure we will have a long-term relationship." – Pat

"We were especially impressed with your professional crew, they all wear S&T shirts (so you know they're supposed to be there), they were thorough, speedy and cheerful. Work was performed when scheduled and finished on time. Linda knows and understands her business. The garden is better than I ever could have imagined." – Diane

"Dear Linda, Thank you and your crew for all of your efforts in landscaping my front yard and slope. I'm so happy that I decided to have it done. Many people passing by have commented on it – it is so natural looking, etc. My yard is the talk of the neighborhood! Thanks again." – Ruth

"Thank you for a wonderful job on our property. The crew was all great to have here and the result is first class. See you next spring! Sprigs & Twigs is far superior to other companies with their all-encompassing approach to landscaping. Linda takes the project from thought to fact." – Beth

"Sprigs & Twigs Landscapes is far superior to any other contractor we've worked with. Much more attentive to customer wishes, better designs and better work."
– Susie and Steve

"Linda, you did an excellent design. The garden installation was done on time when scheduled and the area left neat and cleaned-up. To top it all off, you returned to check on the plantings and actually did the first weeding. I couldn't be happier." – Aggie

"Thanks very much for the work on the playscape - it looks fantastic! It is just what we wanted. It's been great doing business with Sprigs and Twigs - we really appreciate your attention to detail and the friendliness of all your staff. We would like to do a little each year on the garden- hopefully front beds next!"

"With Sprigs and Twigs our properties have never looked so well-groomed."

"You are much more creative, talented and trustworthy and far better than any other company."

"Dear Linda - We would like to thank you for the beautiful landscaping design and installation. I love how our house has been reclaimed from the wild overgrowth and now has the perfect 'feel' for our lifestyle and personality. We appreciate all of your help and commend your employees for their quality workmanship." – Diana W.

"Linda, you are truly a landscape artist." – Shirley

"You are the best we've ever had and the results are terrific. We've received many compliments on our gardens as never before." – Lynne & Dan

"Yours is truly an extra-ordinary operation, with extra-ordinary people, and extra-ordinary standards!" – Suzanne

"Linda is great to work with and the plantings are not like everyone else's." – Sarah & Michael

"You have a great crew, skillful, hard working and pleasant to have around. The neighbors have noticed too. I am very pleased with the (maintenance) job. Thanks so much." – Ann

"The end of a bit more than two weeks in Hawaii, but there is really no place like home - and WHAT a sight greeted us as we pulled in. MAGNIFICENT gardens showing us their best 'faces'. I really like Linda's background and education and the company's attitude toward the environment." – Catherine

"Linda & Bill- the garden looks fantastic – what a transformation! Looking forward to another gardening project with you!" – Susan & Lenny

"We are thankful for the work Sprigs & Twigs has done for us. Our yard and gardens never looked this good. A good job, done well and done quickly...What else could you want!" – Ken & Trudy

"Thank you Linda for a beautiful job. You have a great crew working for you. Your design presentation was superb." – Suzanne

"Dear Linda, I am inside today with the wonderful soaking rain, and I have a moment to tell you how much we are enjoying our garden – coming home to it, looking out on it from the porch, and even pulling out weeds! I have spent some early morning quiet time out in it, and have really loved it. Not a burden so far, and very satisfying to do some work and have it look so lovely. The drains are working well, and the plants continue to thrive. We are glad we did it all – and grateful to you."


"Dear Srigs & Twigs, Best contractors I've ever dealt with, and I've seen a lot of them. Thanks again, you get an A+++". – H.B.

"Your work was the highest quality. The trees look terrific and beautifully shaped the area where the stump needed removing was put back together expertly and the whole operation was undertaken with an admirable level of care and professionalism. Your staff was courteous, friendly and did a terrific post-trim cleanup. We will not hesitate to recommend your company to anyone who mentions to us that they need some work done to the foliage on their property. Many thanks for doing your job so well!!" – Jeff and Anne B.

"This year, circumstances brought two tree service companies to our house. The first was a well-known local who gave us an estimate and completed only about 2/3s of the job but insisted on being paid the total amount then and there. He never returned. Sprigs and Twigs came in to do some landscaping and very nicely finished his work in addition to theirs. They did their best to repair the unsightly cutting that had been done and took great pains to prune additional trees in a way that enhanced the natural beauty of the trees. They looked at the trees from different perspectives and artfully opened up our view while increasing the light and health of the trees and the plants below them. In addition to being well trained and good at their craft, they are extremely nice, polite people who take great pride in their work and their state of the art equipment. They truly deserve the title of 'arborists'." – Beverly C.

"Sorry it took weeks to write this note of appreciation for the really good work you and your men did here. It was professional and a pleasure to have you and your crew here. (That is not always true for some other outfits!!). The job was excellently handled by all of you and thank you so much. I'll certainly call you again and spread the word! You ARE the Tree Guys!!" – Martha

"Thank you so much for a fantastic job in removing our elm tree. We were extremely happy with your hard-working crew and the work involved. We will not hesitate to pass the word concerning your excellent services." – Nancy & Charles S.

"Sprigs & Twigs Landscapes did some property renovation and some replanting. They also did a tree service for us. They took down some trees and did some landscaping. They also trimmed some trees. I had a great experience with this company. They went above and beyond what was expected of them. The yard looked beautiful when they were done. They were very easy to work with. I would definitely recommend them. Their work is great..."

"Sprigs & Twigs did work on trees in our yard. What a great job! I can't believe it. They did all of that without damaging one plant below. They cleaned up everything so nicely. It just looks great! Thank you so much." – Joanne L.

"Please extend my thanks to your tree crew. Absolutely beautiful job. Cleanup was done so thoroughly the only way I could tell anyone was there was there were a few trees missing! It was like they got beamed up by aliens! Lovely, lovely, work! Thanks again." – Paula

"I wanted to tell you how incredibly happy I am with your service. I have another tree to be taken down and I can't wait to see Sprigs & Twigs again. What a lovely group of young men, and OH how diligently they work! I don't know why the prices you give are so low...they deserve gazillions for what they do. Thanks so much. Having dealt with 2 other tree services...well, let's just say I'll always call/recommend you. Thanks again." – Mary

"A few weeks ago Sprigs & Twigs removed four trees at our home. I was Amazed with the care and concern they took to minimize the impact on the yard, our home, and the lamp lighting. Not one thing was damaged despite the enormity of the oak trees that were removed. Further, they took the time to prune back some other trees that were impinging on lower growth. Lastly, after looking at the stumps that were left behind, I called on them to grind them down which they did without hesitation and the crew of two who came early last Saturday left our yard in better condition than they found it!" – Andrew C.
