Everything looks BEAUTIFUL!!!!
I am amazed at the difference.
Thank you so so much.
And I really appreciate the small plantings that were salvaged - like the roses!
We love everything!
Your men did well. More & more visitors here realize the beauty is in your pruning and shaping.

The lawn looks fantastic I could not be happier.
We just wanted to let you know how satisfied we are with the work your team did. Nick was very thorough and the whole group were very hard working. It was a pleasure to have them here working, each one was very helpful. Thanks.

I'm going to renew the Lawn Care and Plant Health Care contracts this year. You and your team did an excellent job last year in terms of general property maintenance. My wife and I really appreciated the thoughtfulness of your staff and the high caliber of service we received.
As urban dwellers, we head outside the moment we get to Southampton. Fortunately, over the last twenty years we have had the help of Ray Smith (we started with Dave Green in 1991) to ensure that our property is beautifully maintained, safe and that the plantings are as disease free as possible. We have worked closely with everyone on Ray's team, using their plant monitoring program, their lawn cutting, hedge trimming, tree pruning, tree removal, transplanting and landscaping services. Tom Volk is our 'man on the ground' who visits our property often and works with me on our pruning schedule, our transplanting needs, new plant installations, pest management and myriad other issues as they come up. We have been extremely satisfied with the professionalism of the team.
What a wonderful Arbor Day program you put on for my 5th grade class at LongHouse Reserve. You all have lit the fires of young arborists!

In a long life I have never recommended anyone so highly as I do Ray Smith. He is a proven asset and the services of his firm a sound investment.
While Ray loves trees and understands their requirements, his firm offers full-service maintenance with a likable, conscientious staff sufficiently large to serve a goodly number of clients. Because LongHouse is one of them, the many trees here each year become more noble.
We are most pleased with Ray Smith’s new departments for turf, irrigation and water features.

Because of your reputation and past experiences, I choose Ray Smith & Associates for my landscape project. I was given total attention and was informed every step of the way. The staff and crew were respectful and did a great job. The result over exceeded my expectations.
I am writing to compliment you on the excellent work performed by your staff. They continue to have outstanding planning, communication, and execution. I have written previously to express my extreme satisfaction with the supervision of my project. Your staff continue to be helpful and represent your firm in the finest manner!
This is a thank you note for the time, interest, and creativity you provided in our design of a driveway and landscaping for our home. We were particularly taken with your suggestion of a wild flower meadow off the driveway and the parking area among the trees.
Landscaping is done across a wide range of sophistication, and it was evident that your approach was highly developed as well as knowledgable. Thank you again!
I have been a client of Ray Smith & Associates for three years. During this time, you have redesigned my home’s two large ponds and re-landscaped much of the surrounding garden. Critical to the redesign was diagnosis and reconstruction of a previous landscaper’s incompetent workmanship on the plumbing and installtion of the ponds and a connecting stream. You have proved yourself exceptionally knowledgeable and creative. Your water gardens division has built a reputation for being the best in aquascapes on the East End of Long Island. I am among your many loyal and devoted customers.
I am writing this letter regarding your really wonderful and talented Water Garden Division. In the past few years, you have not only brought us wonderment and joy in our backyard, but you have made yourself a friend. I am always amazed at how much knowledge you have about landscaping and I’m always in awe of your fine taste and great eye in the planning of your water features. We have the higest regard for your work ethic and warm personality. Thank you!
We wanted you to know how pleased we were with the transformation of our beach property in Montauk.
Your crew created a little bit of paradise on our property. We left our entire project in your hands and our only request was that it look natural to the land. To wake up in the morning to the aroma of cedar trees and see the pines swaying in the wind is a joy! Even the birds, butterflies, bees and dragonflies love the pond and waterfall almost as much as our family and friends. We are anxiously awaiting the bloom of the Montauk daisies in October.
Please accept our sincerest thanks to your entire crew!
