Long Island’s Top Rated Landscape Company
Real Reviews from Real People
“We most highly recommend the five star Hick’s team led by Peter Hogarty. The entire experience was way above our expectations, having worked with several landscape designers in the past. Peter was absolutely responsive to the changes we asked him to incorporate. He and his crew went above and beyond. Our friends and family consistently use one adjective to describe the result. “Exquisite!” We are absolutely delighted! Thank you Peter and the Hick’s team!”
“We couldn’t be happier with Craig, Rich and the entire team at Hicks. They are professional, honest and very reliable. Everything that was promised to us, we received. PLUS MORE! Most importantly, the project was completed within the time frame that was promised….The ENTIRE team was friendly, professional and an ABSOLUTE PLEASURE TO WORK WITH. We highly recommend Hicks Nurseries.”
“We hired Thomas Cahill as our Landscape Designer. Tom drew up a perfect plan for our small backyard and incorporated all the details we asked for! He and his team of professionals didn’t miss one detail throughout the entire process. My husband and I and family are well pleased with the results and would highly recommend all of Hicks’ services.
Their friendly, timely and professional approach can’t be outdone!!! 👍👍👍👍”
“From my initial telephone call inquiring about their landscaping design and installation services, to the last watering of my new backyard garden by the excellent installation crew, my experience with Hicks was wonderful. Sal is such a nice man; his knowledge was invaluable in helping with our landscape design and he stopped by each day of the 2 day installation to make sure things were running smoothly. Julio supervised the 3 man crew, and all of them were friendly, diligent, neat, and professional.
I am a very satisfied customer and highly recommend Hicks for anything needed to make your home more beautiful.”
“We worked with Peter H. Simply put, he did an incredible job with a challenging project. Punctual, professional and responsive. The yard looks incredible.”
“We loved working with Hicks and especially Sal Masullo; he was knowledgeable, collaborative, and worked with our revisions to deliver a beautiful landscape design! Their crew, led by Alex, was professional, detail-oriented and efficient. We love how it turned out!”
“We hired Hicks Nurseries to landscape and fence our outdated front and back yards, and cannot say enough about how professional and pleasant they were to work with. Thomas Cahill was our primary on the project and he was patient, thorough, and very helpful. We approved the plans quickly as he immediately got what we were trying to do and at a reasonable price.
Once the work started, it was a pleasure to see the team in action: Prompt, professional, and always going the extra mile to solve the little issues that come up on every project. They were clean, caring, and followed up with care days after the final project was completed. All I can say is Thank You! Highly recommended.”
“The men are just finishing up and I want you to know they are truly terrific. Courteous, respectful, efficient and tidy. Please know that I remain a very grateful and appreciative client. Hick’s Nurseries will continue to have my business because you and your guys are terrific.”
“As usual, everything is perfect. The guys who came to work on my yard were terrific. They did a great job of getting me ready for winter AND next Spring. I’m so excited! And, as always, working with Anthony is a dream. I couldn’t be happier with everything.”
“We chose Hicks for our backyard renovation, and we couldn’t be more pleased. The job was done quickly, efficiently and absolutely beautifully.
Hicks, specifically Craig Donley– who managed the project, were in daily contact. We knew who was showing up, when they would be there, and exactly what they would be doing. Other than a few days of bad weather, there were no wasted moments. This meant that project was completed, from ground-breaking to finishing touches, with remarkable speed. Craig and his team coordinated all permits and communications with the town. They asked our input and advice with all questions and design changes.
Every member of the Hicks team was friendly, hard-working, and respectful of our home and our family.
A quick anecdote: My daughters’ cherry tree, the one that blooms in April– right around her birthday–was a casualty of the renovation. This was very upsetting to her… hysterically upsetting. Craig and team made sure to get the same type of tree placed somewhere else in the yard. They included my daughter in the placement, the hole digging, and the ceremonial planting of the new tree. Not only that, but Juan (everyone’s favorite Hicks demo guy and strong-man) cut tree-stump seats from the old cherry for my children to sit on beneath the new one.
When you begin a huge project, there are usually so many headaches and hassles, so many hurdles and setbacks. There was none of that with Hicks. Can’t recommend them enough.”
“(The Hicks Landscapes crew was) leaps and bounds above the rest. Their attention to detail and care is remarkable in this day and age. I have since recommended them and if I have any future projects…I am looking no further than to Sal and his team. Great job guys!”
“I have a very small back yard (30×30 feet) that was just a patch of grass and bushes. I told Craig at Hicks what my vision was – a courtyard feeling with a patio and landscaping, no grass, kind of a secret garden. They came up with a plan and while it was the most expensive of the quotes I got, it was exactly what I had been hoping for.
The installation was quick and clean. There was a problem with drainage and they immediately made some changes to fix it. Couple of small items didn’t survive the winter and they replaced them no problem. Now a year later I am THRILLED with my secret garden and go out there all the time. Highly recommend.”
“I just wanted to take a few moments to share my thanks for the great job everyone involved did with our remodel. Tom took everything I imagined, and some things I did not and made it a reality. He was always open to my many questions and thoughts – never making me feel anything but listened to.
Now, what can I say about the crew, led by Juan….exceptional! Juan is an amazing manager with everything being done so efficiently…carefully and beautifully. He always included me in decisions, which I truly appreciate. Every single person on the crew is so good at what they do and I have never seen a more hard-working group of people.
Thank you again for the amazing job! ”
“Our project was located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn and not many affordable companies were willing or able to complete our project, but Hicks was. Our Landscape Designer, Anthony Musso, was wonderful. ..he was great at making suggestions and providing insight on potential alternatives due to our limited entry access. We were prepared for the worst but the team executed everything perfectly.”
“I just completed my second project with Hicks Landscapes and both were outstanding… I get constant compliments from neighbors, passerby… Your foremen are amazing. Highly knowledgeable on both horticulture and design. It came as a surprise that they don’t just plant. They and their crews do backbreaking work, but with a smile and exceptional attention to detail. I’m supremely picky so trust me on that.
I have a little Cape Cod home, nothing remotely grand, but couldn’t have been treated better or more professionally than if it were a Gold Coast estate. A neighbor told me recently that my property reflects a lot of love. That’s in large part due to Hicks.”
“I am writing to tell you of my recent wonderful experience with Hicks Landscapes. My husband and I have a long-standing relationship with Hicks over the course of many years. I would not hesitate to recommend your design and installation team at any time in the future. Congratulations on a job well done!”
“I have been a customer for many years. I like the care shown at the store & the quality of the products sold. I have faith Hicks Landscapes will stand behind the work they did. The installers were awesome. Well planned and executed.”
“I just wanted to tell you how happy I am with the plantings that you did for me at my home in Oyster Bay. The design and the quality of the plants was superb. Tom was absolutely wonderful as was Anthony but, honestly, I was most impressed with your men who did the installation.
They started every morning with a smile and it never faded during the day. It was so nice to have pleasant people working on my property (for a change). They were professional and their attention to detail included placing a tarp under the lift of the truck to prevent the driveway from getting topsoil on it. They impressed me and the precision on the plant beds (a line of what will become a hedge) impressed several friends. I will absolutely use you for my next project (but you have to promise me Juan and his men:) – I was so pleased with the lack of stress. Thank you so much!”
“Much of the project was done remotely due to the pandemic and I’d say (they) went above and beyond to make it a smooth process! …. it’s exactly what I hoped (for)…. Thanks!”
“I just wanted to follow up with you and express my thanks and appreciation to Hicks for their work on the landscape project which took place last spring. I especially would like to mention my thanks to Tom Cahill and his team for their creativity and attention to detail while implementing the plan. They really made an extra effort to go beyond our expectations, bringing truckloads of bushes, ferns and plants as well as soil, pavers and mulch to make it all work. No detail was overlooked.
The result was not only beautiful but inspiring as well. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the summer in the back yard, appreciating the beauty of the landscape. It is really a peaceful refuge in the middle of Queens. I have worked on the yard for many years but Tom and his crew brought it to a new level, one in which we will enjoy for many years. Thank you.“
“Over the past few months we have been working with your professional design team to landscape areas disrupted in the renovation of our home. We wanted to take a moment to tell you what an excellent experience we had. While only the first phase has been completed, the curb appeal is tremendous, Every time we return home we are reminded of how pleased we are.”
“We had a very challenging poolscape installation project. There were space, drainage and slope issues along with making sure the right kinds of plants for sun and shade areas were selected. The Hicks Landscapes team provided the expertise to produce a beautiful result. Most importantly, we have been impressed by Hicks’ willingness to stand behind the quality of their work as any plantings that did not thrive were replaced without question.”
“Was a great experience from start to finish. At first they didn’t have enough of the trees we wanted. They put us on a waiting list and actually called when they had enough trees. I went in and purchased them and then William came to look at the yard and make sure all was good to go and what would fit. The installation was great. They showed up on time and finished promptly and did an excellent job. Would highly recommend.”
“From the first moment I spoke with my landscape designer Peter Hogarty, I knew that Hicks was the right company for our backyard landscaping project. I recently completed an inground pool with retaining walls, outdoor barbecue island and an entire backyard of pavers and wanted my backyard to look amazing.
Peter’s professionalism, knowledge and kindness was immediately evident to my wife and I and we were not disappointed. Peter was there with us every step of the way throughout the project and the final result was everything we had hoped for and more. Furthermore, the install crew did an amazing job to bring (the) design to life and overall an A++. I will continue to be a Hicks customer for many years to come.”
“We absolutely love the job! Every single plant looks happy in its new home. Not a single leaf wilted after their transplant! ….Compliments are flowing in with texts, calls, and passersby! The process was pleasurable and exciting from beginning to end.
(Anthony) understood what I had in mind and worked hard to adjust my dreams and your vision to our budget. We really appreciate that. I can’t praise your crew enough. Alex is a true gem and they were all respectful and hard working men. They really seem to love their jobs and take great pride in their work. Thank you!”
“EXCELLENT WORK by the Hicks team! Our front and backyard came out looking beautifully. Highly recommend the team and their creativity and professionalism!”
“The landscape design department did a phenomenal job. Everything they promised they did – beyond my expectations. All the staff there and the staff working on the property were caring competent, friendly extremely professional. A precious and rare find these days.”
“We recently hired landscape designer Craig Donley and his team from Hicks to design and landscape the area around our new pool as well as the entire back property. They came in with beautiful detailed plans including pavers leading to the pool area, a complete BBQ patio design, back pavers and secret garden area behind the pool house and so much more.
Every tree, plant, shrub and flower was meticulously planned out. He even did the elevation plan for us. Craig is brilliant and so wonderful to work with. He really listens to his customers and is a true professional. He was constantly on site to ensure that everything was going perfectly. Juan Meija and his landscape team from Hicks were also wonderful and beautifully executed Craig’s design. It was truly flawless!”
“From beginning to end, Hicks Landscapes and its subcontractors, did an amazing job! It was seamless. I can’t say enough.”
“We could not be more thrilled with the experience as well as the outcome of working with Hicks. The beautiful landscape design now compliments and enhances the design of our house. Not only do they have a good understanding of the plants, but the ‘eye for design’ they have is hard to find!! Highly recommend them for landscape architecture!!”
“We had several proposals from independent landscapers. They made suggestions based what would look good now and not several years down the road. Hicks was able to accomplish what looks good now and how the landscaping will grow over time. In specific, Tom was great by providing visuals, educating and listening. I would highly recommend this service.”
“I wanted to share with you just how thrilled we are with the work by the entire Hicks team that my wife and I worked with renovating our backyard. Beginning with Anthony Musso, the project could not have gone more smoothly from the moment with first met with Anthony until the project was completed yesterday morning.
I wanted to not only share with you our appreciation to Anthony but how impressed we are with the work by the crew foreman, Juan and the members of his team whose efforts brought Anthony’s beautiful plan to life in a way that frankly was beyond our expectations. The time Juan spent ensuring that the job was done well showed in every aspect of the job which included the removal of three very large, problematic tree stumps. Given the difficulty, it would have been understandable had the stumps been ground down and left but Juan and his crew went the extra mile to remove all three stumps in their entirety. A truly incredible job. The pride and commitment Juan and his team demonstrated to get the job right showed in every corner of the yard and is very much appreciated.”
“We worked with Tom Cahill and his team, they did an excellent job designing our hot tub area! Tom was a pleasure to work with and I would recommend Hicks to anyone!”
“I just wanted to say (again) that everything looks wonderful. The team did a great job and I’m always so amazed at how quickly they can transform everything. They are very efficient and knowledgeable, and on top of that, just having all the trimmings taken away was wonderful. It would have taken me ages to do what they managed in just a short time.”
“(Anthony Musso) I want you to know how thrilled I am with my new backyard…everything – from your design of hardscape, choice of pavers, and selection of plants is perfect…the wisteria was the icing on the cake! (What) a great job, we are very pleased with the finished project.”
“My job was small, but I received attention as if I was landscaping two acres. The crew was accommodating, meticulous and clean. I am very happy and I will be back.”
“First let me say that Anthony was fabulous. He treated me like royalty. He listened to what I wanted. Juan and his team spent the entire day here. They were neat and quiet, happy and respectful. I couldn’t be happier and have another appointment with Anthony for more work…. You guys ROCK and I have already recommended you on my Next Door app which went to thousands of my neighbors. Thank you so much for decorating my yard and filling my heart.”
“It was a delight working with Hicks Nurseries for the design of my landscaping. They came in within the budget I had in mind and provided me with prompt and professional service as well as a beautiful landscape design for my home. The gentlemen that worked on the installation were neat and very professional as well. As an interior designer, I will be recommending Hicks Landscapes should my clients ever ask me for a landscape designer referral. I look forward to enjoying my new gardens in the spring!”
“I (chose Hicks for my landscape project based) on Hicks’ reputation, and my positive experience buying plants (there). Very happy with the (process) — the job was completed quickly and well, our property was left neat and clean with little disturbance to the existing plantings, and everyone was pleasant to work with.”
“Everyone was friendly, professional and experienced. Love working with Hicks. We are never disappointed.”
“My wife Patti and I just wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know what a wonderful job Peter and Luis did this week when they were here working on our backyard landscaping. They were patient, willing to explain what we needed to know to assure the success of the new plantings, and worked their tails off to make sure the work was perfect. We consider ourselves lucky to have had them doing the work and Hicks is lucky to have men like that working for it.
Thank you all – for all your work on our project and standing behind it so completely and without reservation. You probably don’t need our endorsement but if any prospective customer wants to talk to a past customer to learn what their experience with Hicks has been, put them in contact with us.”
“Thanks so much to you and your team for everything; the garden is looking truly beautiful. And I know how hard your team worked. …everyone…was truly outstanding.”
“After speaking with three landscapers, and getting beautiful proposals from two, I chose Hicks to do the landscaping in the front of my house. We could not possibly be happier with the work done by your entire team. I am blissful watering the plants each day. I’ll be back at Hicks, probably this coming week, to pick up a few annuals to add to the spaces designed.”
“I am writing this email from my backyard, basking in its beauty and wanting to say thank you. We now have a lovely garden, fully landscaped to perfection. We are excited to see it all come alive next year and enjoy the three season blooms you selected for us. This project was simply put, a fabulous experience. You listened to everything we wanted and developed the perfect landscape plan for our backyard. The project crew worked tirelessly for two days, being mindful and respectful of us and our home at all times. They went the extra mile to do everything just right and they arrived each day with friendly smiles and a bright hello.
Don and I have lived in our home for 33 years and have had many workmen do projects in our home, but none held a candle to the care and concern for detail and outcome as Hicks Landscape. This project exceeded our expectations and we are excited at the prospect of all the enjoyment we will have for many years to come. Thank you so much.“
“I love all my new plantings! Craig did a terrific job with the design! When I needed to scale back the project, he was very accommodating. The crew worked so hard in the heat, took such care when moving my plants and left the area spotless. THANKS!”
“If you would like to turn your home into a meticulously landscaped showplace, call Hicks!!!! Thank you Craig Donley for your “studied eye for detail” and all Hicks staff members who brought your ideas to fruition. Can’t wait for our next project together.”
“We were very pleased with prior landscaping projects and were confident we would get superior work from Hicks. Tom Cahill was extremely knowledgeable and easy to work with. Also, the crew of masons, worked extremely hard during hot weather and provided a fantastic, finished product.“
