Meet Our Happy Customers

“Bears Landscaping is the ONLY call you need to make! We contacted 7, YES SEVEN, companies to give us a quote for a water issue in our driveway. Out of those 7 only 2 actually came out and none of them ever gave us a formal quote. Finally we were told to reach out to Bears Landscaping. I wish we had done that from the start!! Ray came out within days of us calling , had a quote in our hand (much less than we were expecting) , and had us on the schedule. WOW! His team who did the work were complete professionals and got the job done quickly, clean, and most importantly fixed the issue. Ray was extremely detailed in letting us know what the issues found were, what they did to fix it, and what we could do in the future if we felt it necessary. I have learned my lesson and Bears Landscaping will always be my first and only call going forward.”

“I have used Ray Bears for plowing and other services for several years. They are my go to company, and I would recommend them to anyone.”


“Ray Bears & Sons Landscaping removed an existing paver walkway and installed a new one. Ray was helpful as we planned the design and selected the new pavers. Work began when scheduled and workers were non-stop for 3 days to complete the job. We are very satisfied with the design and the installation. Ray and his crew are professional, friendly and diligent. Ancillary work, such as lawn repair and seeding, were also done well. Ray also came highly recommended by a local supplier of pavers, which helped us select him.”

“The backyard you built us is beautiful and we know we will enjoy it for years to come. We wanted to write you this thank you note to let you know that we recognize and value your knowledge and expertise in building the retaining walls, patio, poolscape, and walkways exactly how we envisioned it. As customers, we felt involved in the project but never had to worry about anything. You coordinated with all of our other pool, excavator, electric, plumbing, and fence contractors to ensure maximum efficiency in scheduling and inspections and made every effort to keep all thing flowing smoothly. It was an absolute pleasure to work with you and your team. We will be very pleased to recommend you to our friends, family, and neighbors. Great Jon! Thank you so very much!”

“We were incredibly pleased with the work done by Ray Bears & Sons Landscaping. They worked in close collaboration with our deck builders, adapting as needed to work within the challenging dynamics of our yard. When the deck builders were required to slightly modify the steps down to the patio, Ray Bears took it upon himself to redo the stone work at the base of the deck steps to improve the flow and esthetics. Ray Bears kept in close communication with us throughout the work so we always knew what was being done, timing and experience. At the end of the job, they cleaned everything up, leaving no trace of their presence other than an amazing landscaped back yard area. We are very pleased with the outcome and have had many complements. The deck builder, a national award winner, even commented this was one of the nicest looking backyard areas he’s seen.”

“What can I say, even the neighbors are raving about the fantastic transformation to our property that Ray Bears and his crew accomplished. They truly made a silk purse out of a sow’s ear. We couldn’t be happier. It was a pleasure to work with them. True professionals from day one.”

“This was the second time we used Ray Bears & Sons Landscaping as the first job they did for us was fantastic. The retaining walls, sidewalk and gardens they put in for us back in 2007 were done so well that we called them back! Not to mention the pricing was great, very fair, no hidden costs, everything up front and on the level for both jobs! In August, they installed a 13′ by 20′ lakefront patio and also added a step and installed columns at our front entrance. All of the stone work was done with pavers set in a modified herringbone pattern. The workmanship is fantastic and we couldn’t be happier with it.”

“We could not be more pleased with the two big jobs that Ray Bears & Sons Landscaping have completed for us this summer. From the very beginning of this process Ray Bears & crew have epitomized what all professionals should be. Ray & Co. have been attentive to everything we wanted and expected. From Dawn in the office right through Ray & all his crews. Everything was handled with expertise and skill. Ray promptly showed up and provided multiple estimates for the several jobs we required. The work was started and completed as promised and the jobs left no details unaddressed. Both projects absolutely exceeded our expectations. My wife and I can’t thank you enough. We have no hesitation calling Ray for whatever our next project might be. If you are looking for a company you can trust and be satisfied with for any of your landscaping or hardscaping needs…look no further…call Ray Bears & Sons Landscaping. I am sure you will be happy you did.”
