Hear It from Our Customers

  • “About four and a half years ago, we moved into our new house and wanted to install a swimming pool, but needed a retaining wall nearby. I usually do this kind of work myself, but this time I felt it would be best to involve a professional. Once I met with Mark and Josh from Sparrow, I knew they were the exact professionals I wanted. They were much more creative than I would have been, and even suggested a great way to upgrade another wall on the property with the same stone.

    Their crew worked quickly and efficiently; even getting the quote was quick! The project was completed on schedule, the cost was reasonable and everyone was professional and reliable at every step. I couldn’t ask for more, and I won’t hesitate to call them for future projects, and neither should you!”

  • “When we built a new house, we chose Sparrow to handle all the landscaping. They worked with us on design, and created beautiful landscaping, including two berms with roses and ornamental shrubs. We have worked with landscapers in locations around the country and found Sparrow to be at the top when it comes to quality, and they were nice to work with, too. We are well satisfied, and highly recommend Sparrow.”

  • “The Sparrow team did a great job building beautiful retaining walls and large flower beds for my home. They also perform monthly maintenance on my landscaping.

    My yard is rather large, and often I would come back from traveling and find my home looking like a disaster. I’d feel overwhelmed at all the work that had to be done. Since I’ve had Sparrow handle the maintenance, my home looks amazing and I have total peace of mind about my yard. The Sparrow team always does a great job, and they always ask if there’s more they can do. Do yourself a favor, and call them today!”

  • “We rely on Sparrow for a number of services on our property. They built a patio for us at our previous home, and planted beautiful perennials. When we moved to our new home, they did a fine job building a new stoop and brick walkway for our back door. They planted trees for us and keep our yard looking great with lawn and landscape maintenance and weed removal. My husband John uses Sparrow for snow removal at his business and has been very satisfied.

    The Sparrow team is friendly, professional, timely, never leaves anything unfinished (even temporarily), and stand by their work 100%.”

  • “I’ve worked with Sparrow as a homeowner and as the Executive Director of Youth Development at the Family YMCA of Northwest Illinois. They did a great job beautifying my property after we put on an addition and added a pool, and they helped us with leveling and new rock when we replaced our shed. I have them work on my property at least every other year, beautifying it, removing shrubs and laying down new mulch.

    Speaking of mulch, I always had a difficult time finding someone who could handle the mulch on our playgrounds at the YMCA. We need mulch that’s properly screened so there’s no debris in it that might hurt the children, and some landscapers aren’t willing to seek it out. Mark and the Sparrow team not only get us the right mulch, they get it spread on the playgrounds so quickly and efficiently that the kids don’t miss a moment of play.

    I highly recommend Sparrow, and I wouldn’t go anywhere else!”

  • “I was an early Sparrow customer and have been sold on them ever since. Their first job for me was replacing my concrete front steps with brick, and they did an excellent job. When we added onto our house, they worked closely with our building contractor, gave us a wonderful front patio, and redid all the hardscaping in the backyard.Today, I rely on Sparrow for all my mowing, landscape planting, and maintenance. Everyone on their team is knowledgeable, personable, and just plain nice. They’re even good to my dogs! I recommend them highly for your lawn and landscape needs.”
