Hi Todd, We have been watching one of your crews working on the property right behind our house. They worked for two days repairing a very neglected landscape. We were very impressed with the effort made, they were focused and they worked steadily from start to finish. We have met the owners only once last Fall and we do not know their name other than Steve and Mary. They are not outside much at all. Hopefully with new landscaping they will have more reason to be out. It is always good to see your company working in our neighborhood. We have always recommended Pleasant Valley because of the work you have done here over the years. Seeing the crew’ professional work and work ethic next door confirms the validity of our recommendations. All the best for a great 2016. Regards to Tracey as well.

First - when I got home on Thursday, I couldn't believe how beautiful the yard looked! The beds, the mulch - what a beautiful job! Please let the crew know that they did a great job and I really appreciate it! And then the grass was cut yesterday for the first time! I'm just so proud of the way the yard looks. Many thanks to Pleasant Valley!

Cindy C., Ashburn

Todd I came out to Middleburg today just for a couple hours and what a surprise - the place looks MANICURED, and oh how I love that look!

Thanks very much,

Patrick M., Middleburg

The guys did a great job on my landscape. Very pleased!! Thank you.

Ken H., Centreville

Todd: I didn't expect such quick service!! Place looks fabulous. Thanks to you and your crew.

Mark S., Reston

I wanted to let you know how friendly and helpful your crew was when they came last month and it was the willingness of this crew that made me decide to resume this [Monthly Maintenance] service.

Susan M., Herndon

Mark, Neelu,

Thank-you so much for your amazing service and the fine work of your landscaping team at our house. The yard has definitely looked its best since you took over maintenance! And I'm sure your efforts were a huge factor in the successful sale of our house.

I will definitely recommend you to the new homeowners!

Liz W., Oakton

We are so pleased with our patio, David.

Mary M., Aldie


We are impressed and extremely happy with the work that was done today. Our yard has never looked better and your crew was amazing.

Thank you for everything! Our experience could not have been better from the moment we called to the finished product.

Warmest regards,

Sonia B., Centreville

We are very happy and proud of how good our lawn always looks -thank you! Please give our thanks to all your staff as well.


Robyn B., Oakton

We have had a positive experience with PVL for almost 20 years.

Mary Ellen E., Vienna

Dear Mr. Tarring,

I wish to commend the fine work of your project leaders and the work teams who executed the Hardscape and Landscape agreements on our property. They and their work are the finest example of design, planning, preparation and execution we have ever experienced through our many years of property ownership.

We are so pleased with the results. David’s flexibility in allowing us to “be involved” with the project was a key factor in selecting Pleasant Valley Landscapes. I recognize that professional people and the representation of their company are the result of them having confidence in their leadership. You can certainly be proud of their performance. Please share with them our sincere appreciation.

I hope you will consider adding us to your customer reference list and take the liberty of showing pictures of the work as you see fit.

Best wishes to you and the PVL team.

Michael & Sandi P., Oak Hill

…love doesn’t come close to describing how we feel about the patio. It’s even more fabulous than we imagined and our backyard has an entirely different feel to it already. Thank you guys SO much. You guys have been terrific to work with and I’m already excited about thinking through the next phases of our master plan.

Thanks again for everything…we can’t wait to brag about you guys to everyone and hopefully send some business your way. You will definitely be getting some more from us in the future.

Jennifer & Sam C., Oak Hill

Hi Mark,

I want to let you and Victor know that I am very pleased with the way our lawn looks! It survived the winter very well. As you and I had discussed last year, Victor put down heavy seeding on the bank on the left side of the house last fall. That bank was dirt last year and now it has grass! Admittedly, there are a few bare areas, but the difference from the end of last year to this year is fantastic! Much of the lawn looks lush!

Thanks to you and Victor. Please pass on this email to him.

Gail M., Reston

The front yard looks lovely!

Diane Z., Oakton

Everything looks fabulous! I love PVL!!!

Janice C. Chantilly

I just got back and I have to say the yard looks great. You guys did a fabulous job of trimming the trees, cutting the grass, trimming, mulching, etc.

I just wanted to tell you that it looks fabulous. Even the landscape lights are working!

Thanks so much!

Paul A., Great Falls

Morning Mark, Your team and you did an awesome job on my yard…Thanks.

Barbara T., Clifton

Hi Todd and Mark,

Your crew did a BEAUTIFUL Job!

Barbara V., Oakton

Just wanted to let you know that the work performed by the crew yesterday was outstanding. I allowed things to deteriorate a bit too much, and we talked about the weed problem areas I was dealing with. They took care of it, and then did a beautiful job reestablishing the edges of the mulch beds, trimming, pruning and everything else. The yard has a well-manicured look. I wish I had taken before and after pictures, but attached are a few from yesterday afternoon.

Please pass on my appreciation and thanks to everyone.

Michael M., Aldie

The yard is beautiful thanks to your wonderful team!

Gary K., Ashburn

We like the plans you sent us very much. This past weekend was a lot of fun for us and there were many comments on how nice the back area of our home is looking. Thank you so much!

I’ve enjoyed seeing Matt when he’s popped by and he’s keeping me on my toes with all the watering issues we have out here. We are so happy with the outcome of this project and are so grateful to you for helping us create it. I can’t wait till next spring!!!

Thanks and please keep in touch!

Diane M., Clifton

I wanted to let you know how pleased Marilyn and I are with the brickwork. Your team does some very professional work! The pictures you sent of the before and after really show the difference.

Thanks again for such a professional job!

Tom B., Oak Hill

Thanks for the follow up. Everything looks outstanding. We are extremely pleased with the service.

Matt & Lauren C., Chantilly

Holly and I thought they were very personable and of course have done a great job. I think Holly said they are almost complete with the landscape portion and the walk is completed and looks great. Matt and David were very nice to work with. They gave great suggestions on other portions of our yard.

Thanks again for everything,
Jim & Holly R., Clifton

Hello David,
I was so sorry that I didn’t get to personally say goodbye on your last day and to thank your whole team. Please pass on my thanks to them for their wonderful craftsmanship and all the work they and you did. John and I are so pleased and just enjoy looking at it.

Thank you also for the information about the plants—it's good to know—I was especially concerned about the Hydrangeas. Hydro-Tech is coming out today to check it out and we’re watering the other stuff every day.

John & Cici P., Leesburg

You guys are always quick to respond. By the way, we love the yard and have gotten lots of compliments. Good work!

Keith & Beth M., Oak Hill

We have been extremely happy with all aspects of PVL.

We always receive compliments on how beautiful our lawn is - and it's all because you and your crew do such a fantastic job!

Thanks so much and keep up the great work.

Robyn B., Oakton

I have always been very pleased with all the work done, the lawn mowing is always done on time, the crews that have done other lawn work have always been very professional and helpful with any questions, and your person who works in the office is always super responsive and helpful! I am very satisfied with your company and quality of work!

Diane B., Chantilly

I have been very pleased with PVL in all respects. The crew that comes to the house is pretty much the same guys and they’re great. Whenever I have had to call the office, the ladies have always been extremely helpful and timely in getting back to me. This year I wanted some help with outdoor Christmas lights and even though you didn’t do what I wanted, I was referred to someone who did.

I do have one of the prettiest yards in the neighborhoods and I think that is why some of my neighbors are now using you!

Looking forward to another good year.

Jolaine C., Chantilly

Last year was our first year with Pleasant Valley Landscapes. We signed up for edging, mowing and leaf removal only. Our experience has been very positive. THANK YOU!!!! Thank you again for providing good service.

Chelese M., Chantilly

Quite pleased with services. Mark has been very helpful.

Richard C., Chantilly

I think the service is very good all-around and, typically, the team who mows my lawn does an outstanding job…better than we could do.

Martha S., Chantilly

Nothing but good things to say about your company.

David A., Ashburn

Overall we’ve been very happy with PVL. Your staff has been very professional and does a great job.

Edwin D., Oakton

We’re really happy with everything you do for us. Pleasant Valley will continue to be our sole landscaper as long as you continue to do the great job that we’ve grown to expect from you and your firm. There are less expensive service providers—and I have used some in the past—but I’m a firm believer in “you get what you pay for” so we are happy to continue paying for great service.

Scott G., Vienna

As usual, I’m very pleased with your service. You and your staff always respond to any demands and concerns that I have. Thanks for your continued commitment to keeping my home look great.

Debbie A., Oak Hill

Pleasant Valley Folks:

Overall, I have been very pleased with your service and will continue to have the fall clean up with y’all in the future. I’ve only had contact with your office via email, but y’all have always been courteous, professional and pleasant. Your on-site staff are always professional.

L. Michael H., Oakton

We continue to be very pleased with the quality of service received from Pleasant Valley whether in regards to our previous use for landscaping design and planting services or for Spring clean-up and mulching.

Sharon C., Oak Hill

Hi David,
The landscaping that you installed last year is just beautiful and has brought great joy this Spring. It appears we will be putting a pool in this Spring/Summer, so more work for Pleasant Valley to come! We have known you and Todd since 1994 and would not use anyone else in the area - again we love the front yard and have received numerous compliments!

Maureen D., Leesburg

You are absolutely amazing my friend. On Tuesday my house sitter sent me pictures of a maple tree down in the front and a shutter blown off the front of the house. I couldn’t think of a better way to ruin a vacation. I came home last night to find out that your crew had cleaned up everything including the darn tree. My yard was absolutely beautiful. As always you treat me and my family as if it were your own.


Thanks so much for taking such good care of me over the years.

John B., Gainesville

I’ve been working from home more frequently in the mornings and have watched the mowing/edging crews at work. They should be complimented for the thorough job they do. The cutting with multiple direction passes to eliminate tracks and the edging along the house and at the mulch lines is top-notch. Their efforts combined with the lawn thickening results in a clean manicured look. Cleanup is always good with no clippings left over on the walkways or driveway or in the mulch beds. Very nice work and it is appreciated.

Michael M., Aldie

…we are always pleased with your service.

Joyce H., Herndon

They did a great job on Monday.

Lori I., Herndon

We are VERY happy with the [landscape] work. I was trimming and edging on Monday and must’ve had 3 people walking by admiring your work. We’ve gotten lots of comments from people walking their dogs and walking to the pool.

Mark D., Chantilly

[Thank you] for sending your crew today. As usual they did a Beautiful Job. You have the Best and Nicest crew!!

Barbara V., Oakton

I can't express enough how pleased I am with the service you and your team has provided. I'm simply mesmerized by the beauty of it all. Consider it a job very well done! Thank you.

Valair M., Centreville

Thank you so much for the lovely landscaping and the brick walk, which is still getting compliments from passers by.

Diane S., Fairfax

I just wanted start by saying that the work was outstanding.

Trevor T., Ashburn

Thank you both!! Wow what a huge improvement to that side of the house -- I haven't even been able to walk over there since we moved in - - it is much improved and I love the natural stone. I know the guys were out here longer than you thought so thank you - I'm excited to see our backyard not underwater during the next rainstorm!

Jennifer S., Ashburn

Wow. I haven't been to Middleburg in weeks and drove out this morning to check on things. The garden is absolutely beautiful. I'm thrilled with it and I really hope you are proud of it, too. The garden was intended as a 50th birthday gift to myself and comes at a time when I just closed my longtime business and started a new one. Whether it's a start-up company or a start-up garden, new growth feels good. I have the next four (!) gardens all planned out and look forward to our next collaboration. Thanks again. I'm very pleased and the entire yard looks stunning.

Patrick M., Middleburg

Todd, Nicole, Mark and Melissa, Wow! The guys are finishing up now and the yard looks awesome plus the team took care of a couple of drain problems we’ve been wrestling with for some time. The team and Mark exceeded our expectations!

Greg and Joy J., Ashburn

We had an awesome experience with Pleasant Valley Landscapes from consultation through completion of work. Whenever we had questions or wanted to discuss minor alterations to our plan, PVL and particularly David Miller were extremely responsive and helpful. David took his time across multiple visits to explain his ideas and discuss workarounds to a couple of minor problems we encountered due to our awkward lot. The quality of the work is, in my opinion, excellent. PVL used composite stone blocks that look great and planted at least a dozen bushes and small trees to complete the vision we had for the front of our home. We're very pleased with PVL and would definitely use them again for another landscaping or patio project.

Christopher S., Oakton

Good morning, Todd- The yard looks absolutely STUNNING this weekend. I have never seen the grass and gardens looking this good. I love it. Thank you. Please also extend my thanks to every member of your team. It gives me an enormous amount of peace and pleasure and I'm very grateful to PVL for all the help. Have a great weekend.

Patrick M., Middleburg

Mark - Thanks so much for a great job. Everything looks fantastic. I really appreciate the way you and everyone at PV communicates, accommodates, and interacts. It is a refreshing change. Best Regards,

Sid F., Herndon

Just a note to thank you for arranging the clean up. Mark reviewed the plants and provided us useful information. The crew, as usual, did their work in a very efficient and high quality manner. The crew chief, having been at the house for the past few years, knew exactly what needed to be done and where. Great workers! Take care,

Randolph A., Reston

Pleasant Valley did my clean up and mulching work yesterday. I want you to know they did an exceptional job. My house and lawn look like they should be on a magazine cover. Thank you so much,

Carrie D., Herndon

The crew is about to leave, and I wanted to tell you what a great job they did today. Your foreman is very pleasant and cooperative, and I appreciate the work they have done today. I tried to express to them what a great job they did, please make sure that they are aware of how pleased I am with their work.

Lilli T., Oak Hill

Pleasant Valley did my clean up and mulching work yesterday. I want you to know they did an exceptional job. My house and lawn look like they should be on a magazine cover. Thank you so much,

Carrie D., Herndon

Hi David & Matt, Thank you so much for our new & improved landscaping. It looks great, we are very pleased with the results. Which means of course your efforts to design & implement the plan were so important to making the end result what it turned out to be. Your professionalism and pride in doing the job right were so reassuring to us, can't thank you enough for making sure we felt you valued our input. And your work crews were terrific. The stone masons worked out in the hot sun for 6 full days, never slacking off, they created a beautiful walkway. The landscaping crew, same work ethic, professional effort and result. You and your crews are absolutely top notch! Thanks again, great job!!

Edna O., Chantilly

Hi Todd, Rod and I wanted to say how happy we are with the work our crew did last week. We didn’t know what to expect because it’s our first time using your company for fall maintenance. Since we moved into our home in 2001, we had been using the wonderful services of [company name omitted]. They actually designed and built our landscaping too. Alas, [company rep] retired and we were distraught. Your crew carefully listened to our requests (and we had very specific requests that [company rep] had been doing for 16 years) and their work exceeded our expectations. They did a beautiful job pruning our trees. The hand edging around the mulching was impeccable. Dare I say, it was better than with our prior service. Please extend our gratitude and respect directly to the two gentlemen who did the work. We are so very happy and wish to see them again. Thanks and have a lovely Thanksgiving!

Janet A., Chantilly

David and Matt - wanted to say thank you for completing the work yesterday, nice job and done well. Wanted to say the same to your crew as well, but got delayed at work, so could not tell them in person. My wife and I really appreciate all the hard work you and your team did, and it has turned out nicely, and having the lights on at night takes it to the next level. We are so glad about many choices we made with David's support along the way, really appreciate your team building it, and now the pressure is on me to maintain it.😀
