Two years ago my husband & I hired Parker Homescape to do a landscape & hardscape installation for the front area of our property. Our property is located on a rather steep hill which sloped pretty steeply into our front yard. We wanted to be surrounded by several multi-level planting bed terraces built on retaining walls. Scott & Jon presented a beautiful design complete with lighting. It was a lot more than we budgeted for, but Scott’s ability to help us visualize the final product, his honesty & willingness to work within our budget instilled in us a confidence & trust in his vision. We decided to go with the whole project & we were very glad we went with the whole package! I cannot say enough about the professionalism of his team from day one. Jon, the landscape architect was very knowledgeable about the various shrubs, perennials & trees that best served our area in terms of the deer resistance, the light requirements & my high demand for color. He was able to coordinate a wonderful blend of color, texture & interest. When the landscape lighting finally turned on in the end, we felt like we were in a beautiful Tuscan garden. They were exceptional professionals who had a great deal of knowledge & experience but what I appreciated most from both of them was their low key, open & accommodating approach. After the job was done, they came by in the fall to check on the plantings & then again in the spring to replace any of the plantings that did not do well over the winter. We were quite satisfied & we knew we would use them again, & we certainly did!

Last year we asked Parker Homescape to create a patio/landscape area in our backyard. Scott and Jon worked with us to develop a layout and select appropriate plantings based on lighting, our taste and budget. They did an absolutely beautiful job designing precisely the area we had envisioned. Their attention to detail was impeccable. Their recommendations were spot on.
In terms of implementation, they gave us a time frame to complete the project which they met. The crew that installed the plantings and patio could not have been more professional and friendly. The work was concluded last August and we enjoyed it throughout the fall.
Given the bitter winter we had though we did lose a few of the new plantings. We were so impressed that Scott and Jon reached out to check in this spring regarding any damage. They did a site visit and promptly replaced the affected plants. Their guarantee was truly honored.
We could not ask for a better experience. Parker Homescape is committed to excellence and exceptional performance. We hesitate to issue recommendations as experiences can vary. However we feel compelled in this case to share our wonderful experience and a high recommendation. In fact we ourselves recently hired Parker again to plant a tree in our front yard!
ERWIN AND KAREN RAMIREZ
We want to say again how very pleased we are with the entire backyard landscaping project you and your team recently completed for us. From the initial planning in April to the finished product in July, it was a pleasure to work with you, Jon and your entire crew. We appreciate you and your team’s professionalism, landscape knowledge and patience. It truly was a team effort as we always felt you were open to all our concerns and ideas. You also were conscious of our budget and were very helpful in presenting the project in segments for us to consider. Your attention to detail in “making everything right” speaks volumes about the way you conduct business. We continue to enjoy our beautiful new yard and pool area and look forward to working with you again in the future.

Scott, Jon and the team at Parker Homescape were a pleasure to work with on our paver patio project. From our initial conversation to the final inspection, they were professional, courteous, and efficient. Scott and Jon helped us on the design of the patio, both listening to our wishes and offering their expertise to create an elegant design. When it came time for their proposal, they walked us through all of the choices and were very clear and transparent about the price. In addition, they presented different options to us in a “menu” format (patio only; patio + seating wall; patio + seating wall with lighting etc.) but did not once try to push us towards higher cost features. Parker installed a roughly 400 sq. ft. patio in 5 days (the weather was very accommodating that week). The workmanship was precise, neat and extremely high quality. We could not be happier with the finished product and look forward to working with Scott and team on future projects.
LARRY AND ANGELA MOLINELLI
An outstanding experience! I had both landscape lighting and plants updated. Jon did a great job with his recommendations and made a few adjustments based on my preferences. I really appreciated how thorough he was with communication – following up through both e-mail and phone calls. The installation was quick and timely and everything looks great! I highly recommend Parker Homescape.

This letter is being written to applaud your timeliness, customer service, design concept, execution, and overall professionalism. The Parker Homescape team was extremely helpful in helping us envision what the finished product would look like and they listened to our concerns and made adjustments accordingly. We have been very impressed with how Parker Homescape has reached out after the job was completed, following up with phone calls to make sure we were happy with the finished product and visiting our house to make adjustments to the lighting and the sprinkler system. I’m happy to say that we would recommend Parker Homescape to our family and friends as we were very happy with your customer service and overall professionalism and product knowledge.
Thank you again.
LI-ER & THOMAS FRADELLA
Thank you for the excellent design and implementation of the landscaping and hardscape for our front and back yards. We were very impressed with the professionalism, client responsiveness and customer care shown by your team especially in the context of the quick turnaround time for our son’s graduation party. You exceeded our expectations and I will be happy to highly recommend Parker Homescape to your other clients.

Parker Homescape transformed our backyard into a beautiful, functional space that our whole family can enjoy. They brought us creative design ideas that were both attractive and practical. Their design fit our home, blended with the environment and suited our lifestyle. From the design phase all the way through implementation, they listened to our needs, were attentive and very responsive. We would highly recommend Parker Homescape!
JEFF & LISA BRADY
Scott and the professional team at Parker Homescape are a pleasure to work with. They took the time to understand the challenges of my property and made several suggestions on how I could maximize the space we were working with. Having worked with many contractors over the years, I have never worked with one who always answers their phone or responds practically instantly. I have recommended them to several others (some who are very picky) and they all have had positive things to say. A+
Scott is a very passionate and dedicated professional, illustrated by his attention to detail and genuine interest in ensuring our satisfaction. He worked with us during the entire process so that we were comfortable with our decisions and scope of work, even offering some creative options to enhance our overall project, which ultimately exceeded our expectations. We look forward to using Scott’s services again on future projects.
RAY WALLIN, P.E., LEED AP
We downsized into a new planned community and needed to landscape for privacy in our backyard. Scott took the time to design and suggest the most ideal plantings for the exact look we desired. The work was completed on schedule and on budget. Three years later it looks fantastic. I would highly recommend Parker Homescape to anyone that wants a job done right, that looks great and at a fair price.

The “curb appeal” of my home was no longer appealing! I contacted several landscape companies, but none of those companies were able to interpret my vision and stay within my budget the way Parker Homescape was able to do. Scott Parker and his team prepared a design that transformed the front of my home. The installation was performed in the time allotted by long-standing employees of Parker Homescape. I am totally satisfied with the front of my home, and I would not hesitate to call on Parker Homescape for any future landscaping needs.

Aware of the long-standing reputation of the Parker name, we had Parker Homescape design a landscape for New Jersey Automobile Club’s corporate buildings. From design, to construction, to post- job follow through, our expectations were far exceeded and the Parker staff and crews were exceptional. After our job was finished, the Parker staff took the time to diligently explain all necessary care, and when some plants perished, the material was not only replaced in a timely fashion, but we were given additional plants at no charge. We have subsequently given Parker Homescape more work and we will continue to do so in the future. A truly professional and talented firm!

We were thrilled with the outstanding job done by Parker Homescape in transforming our landscaping. After a tough winter where a few shrubs did not survive, we were equally pleased when Parker promptly replaced the plants.
JIM & SUSAN BARRETT
Parker Homescape went well beyond my expectations for a service company by committing to our project and putting in extra effort to enable us to create the design we wanted with the requirements and constraints we faced. Once there, they were able to implement that design in a short period of time. After the installation, Scott made a return visit to make sure we understood the care needs of our new plantings and to get a final look and feel for his and his crews’ work. His personal touch and care for the outcome of our vision was greatly appreciated, and rare in this day. I really got the sense that at the end of the day he cared about our satisfaction.
MATT & TARA MALONE
The patio looks great. Thanks also for taking the time up front to listen to our concerns and for explaining things to us and for meeting our expectations for the project in the end. It was a pleasure working with you and your crew. We look forward to working with you in the future for a more permanent solution to our backyard landscape.
JAMIE & LAURA HARTNETT
Linda and I found Parker Homescape to be wonderful to deal with throughout the entire process. They paid a tremendous attention to detail and a had a strong desire to completely satisfy the customer –I would use them again in a heartbeat and would recommend anyone I know to use Scott and his team of professionals.
BILL & LINDA DOBSON
Andy and I have done a lot of work on this crazy old house, and by far working with you was the best experience we’ve had in 13 years. Nothing is straight forward on a 110 year old house, as you know. Your patience and professionalism was above your competitors and in general most contractors that we’ve been exposed to. We’re getting great comments not just on the landscaping, but on the house in general which was our goal. Now let’s just hope someone wants to buy it in a couple of years!
ANDREW & KAAREN HAMILTON
We certainly made a great choice when we decided to go with Parker Homescape. You listened to exactly what we wanted and worked with us. The entire experience was more than we could have asked or hoped for. You’re reliable, professional and performed the job as promised- a ‘Class Act.‘ We will continue to use Parker Homescape for all our outdoor projects. Everything looks great, thanks!
STEVE & JUDY SCHULEIN
We have very much enjoyed the patio and landscaping you installed last summer and have received many compliments from friends and family. I always make a point of telling them that the work was done by Parker Homescape and what a pleasure it was to work with you.
I thank you again for being so professional. Out of all the companies that I met with, you were the friendliest, most approachable, and professional.
THE SALVETTI FAMILY
We were looking to update our garden and contacted Parker Homescape. Scott and Jon came to review the project and were extremely helpful and knowledgeable in their advice. The project turned out to be all we wished for, and has received many compliments from friends and neighbors. I would recommend the partnership of Scott and Jon to anyone looking for a professional landscaping job. Many companies promise to follow up on their projects, Parker Homescape keeps to their promise and will not let you down.
We had Parker Homescape landscape a large area off our deck where a pool had been. They leveled the area, laid a patio surrounded with a sitting wall and plantings with an outdoor fireplace as the centerpiece. Absolutely professional in all of their dealings and they stood behind their guarantee for any tree or perennial that didn’t make it through the winter. We love the finished area and put the fireplace and sitting area to good use. Would definitely use them again for another project.
Parker Homescape did a number of jobs at our home including landscaping and lighting. They not only did a great, professional job, they stood by their work. When some of the lights stopped working, they quickly identified the problem (not related to anything they did), fixed it, and were super-reasonable with us. We are very happy with and highly recommend Parker Homescape.
Dear Scott and Jon the beautiful flowers you sent me arrived a short time ago. Thank you. It was a pleasure doing work with you and I am delighted each time I look at the stonework. It certainly adds “curb appeal” to my home. Your thoughtfulness is greatly appreciated.
We contracted with Parker Homescape to design and construct a new front bluestone walkway with steps, replacing our decaying one which was constructed of landscape timbers. Scott and his team are among the most professional firms with which we have worked. He suggested several alternatives and ultimately presented a very well written proposal. We had several competitive bids for the job, and Parker was chosen for their attention to detail, competitiveness, and responsive business attention. His team did a great job on the installation and we now have a front walkway that is both unique and beautiful. Scott shows up on time for appointments and takes a personal interest in making sure that everything is done right.
BASKING RIDGE, NJ
We are so pleased with the new look and it is always a pleasure doing business with you.
We will certainly highly recommend you when we can. Have a great planting season!

Parker Homescape transformed my back and front yard into a gorgeous and pleasing oasis. Their detail and care to our project surpassed our expectations. We will enjoy our outdoor space tremendously!

Parker Homescape did a great job landscaping the area around our spa. We really wanted to create an area that made the spa look like it belonged there, rather than just dropped next to the house. The entire project was handled very professionally. We were able to get in touch with Scott easily and he worked with us to stay within our budget and made changes to his design based on our preferences. After initially contacting Scott, he was able to promptly come to see the area and provided a design idea shortly after. The entire project was completed timely without any drama.
I would definitely hire Parker Homescape again for another landscaping project.
SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ
Scott, John and the Parker Homescape team were great to work with. They were very knowledgeable about what plants/trees would work and where, and provided us with really good ideas. They worked within our budget to make our property look like it belongs in a magazine. The project was done on time and was true to budget. They came to evaluate our property after the harsh winter and replaced plants that didn’t make it. They were a great partner in making sure our overall landscaping goals were met.
